However, being the kind people that we are, we have selected seven matches that will be taking place and offers you an opportunity to make some money.
Bundesliga 2: Arminia Bielefeld vs Osnabruck City (Friday, 13 March, 19:30)
Top of the table Arminia Bielefeld has in top form having not lost a match in 5, although their last league game ended in a draw they are still heavily fancied against Osnabruck who are languishing in 14th pace. Bielefeld are the league’s top scorers averaging 2 goals per game this season.

Russia: Zenit St. Petersburg v FC Ural (Saturday, 14 March, 15:30)
Zenit are flying high in the Russian Premier League, boasting a six-point lead at the top of the table. They’re unbeaten at home this term and have kept four successive clean sheets. Ural have won just one of their last eight league ties. Zenit also won the reverse tie by three goals to one, away from home.
Bundesliga: Fortuna Dusseldorf v Paderborn (Friday, 13 March, 21:30)
A relegation six-pointer as Fortuna Düsseldorf welcome Paderborn after registering four ‘score draws’ across their last six Bundesliga games (W1, L1). The hosts are winless in their last four home league games (D2, L2), and conceded eight of the nine goals they shipped during that run in the second half. Furthermore, Düsseldorf have lost four of their last seven Bundesliga home games (W1, D2).
On a run of four consecutive league losses, Paderborn lost the first half ‘to nil’ in three. However three of those defeats came by just a slim one goal-margin, and they conceded in both halves in only two of those losses. A glimmer of hope is that the visitors have collected their last four Bundesliga points on the road.
Bundesliga: RB Leipzig v Freiburg (Saturday, 14 March, 16:30)
RB Leipzig enter this clash having lost just two of their last 30 Bundesliga home fixtures (W18, D10). Scoring first could be Leipzig’s key to victory, with the ‘Red Bulls’ winning each of the five Bundesliga home games in which they have scored the opening goal this campaign. However, home boss Julian Nagelsmann will be concerned that his side have kept just two clean sheets across their 12 opening top-flight home fixtures. Freiburg travel having claimed just one win across their last ten away fixtures in the top flight (D4, L5). They have lost each of their three top-flight road trips to Leipzig.
Bundesliga: Borussia Dortmund v Schalke (Saturday, 7 March, 19:30)
After being knocked out of the UEFA Champions League in midweek, Dortmund seek redemption in the league as they look to close the gap on Bayern Munich in the German Bundesliga. BVB have won their last four domestic ties in a row, while they remain the only unbeaten team at home this term. Schalke have been disappointing this campaign and are on a winless run of seven league encounters.
Algeria Ligue 1: MC Alger vs Magra (Saturday, 7 March, 18:45)
Fourth-placed Alger are definite favourites at home although their home record this campaign has been average winning only 4 times out 9 matches. However, Magra’s form has been horrid and have failed to pick a win in their last 3 fixtures. The reverse fixture ended 0-0 but you’d fancy Alger to be too strong for Magra.
