Friday's European Preview: Hertha Berlin ready to hurt struggling Werder Bremen

There is plenty of football action taking place across Europe on Friday evening, with matches from the Bundesliga, La Liga and Ligue 1 to enjoy.

In Germany Hertha Berlin travel to Werder Bremen, Espanyol make the trip to Mallorca in Spain, while Lens play host to Toulouse in France and all three of these encounters can be followed on our Sports Live Streaming platform.

OddsWerder Bremen 21/20, Draw 14/5, Hertha Berlin 23/10

Werder Bremen have lost their last three matches across all competitions, conceding six goals in the process, and they face a tricky home clash against Hertha Berlin on Friday night.

Hertha have only tasted defeat once from their last seven assignments - that loss was a 3-2 at the hands of RB Leipzig - and they will be hopeful of coming away from the Weserstadion with the spoils.

Sandro Schwarz's men struggled on the road at the start of the season, losing three matches on the spin, but they have since recorded one win, a draw and a defeat from their next three away encounters.

Bremen have only won once at home from five attempts this term and the confidence appears to be low within the camp heading into Friday's clash.

At 23/10, Hertha look the value play in this one and it would be no surprise to see them coming away with all three points.

Tight game expected in Spain

OddsMallorca 5/4, Draw 21/10, Espanyol 5/2

Mallorca and Espanyol have both made average starts to the season and both will be eyeing a crucial three points when they meet at Visit Mallorca Estadi on Friday night.

Los Bermellones snapped their four-game winless run last time out with a 2-1 victory at Valencia, while the Blanquiazules recorded the third 2-2 draw in their last five outings at home to Elche.

Neither side are playing with a great deal of freedom right now, and a tight tussle could be on the cards, with under 2.5 goals at 8/15 a distinct possibility.

No less than five of Mallorca's last six games have all seen under 2.5 goals, while this same bet has landed in two of Espanyol's last three matches.

With just two places and two points separating these two sides, expect this to be a cagey affair with potentially one goal being enough to claim the spoils.

OddsLens 4/7, Draw 10/3, Toulouse 9/2

Lens have been one of the surprise packages in Ligue 1 this season and they currently sit in second position, five points behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain.

Franck Haise's troops have been built on a strong backline and they have conceded just eight times - a record only bettered by PSG (5) - while they have found the back of the net 19 times at the other end.

Les Sang et Or have won four of their last six games by a 1-0 scoreline and it is 15/2 for this same result to be repeated on Friday against visitors Toulouse.

Philippe Montanier's men are on a four-match unbeaten run heading into the contest, so they will be no easy pushovers, but they have struggled to pick up results on the road.

Toulouse are without an away win in four attempts - losing three and drawing one - and they may find it tough to end this winless streak at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis.

Lens have won all six home games this season and have kept clean sheets in their last three. With the club still in the mix for league honours, they will be in no mood to let their perfect home record be tarnished.

A win to nil for the home side is priced at 7/4 and their strong defensive record this season suggests another clean sheet could be on the cards.
