Everton make their debut in the Algarve Football Cup, a summer football friendly game, when they come up against Lille at the Estadio Do Algarve on Saturday.
The Toffees kicked-off their pre-season on a very high note ahead of their trip to Portugal by pummelling Irdning 22-0. And they will be anticipating to build on that in this great contest away from home.
Having only played Les Dogues on two occasions which were in the group stage of the 2014 Uefa Europa League with the Merseyside outfit claiming a 3-0 aggregate win, they’re offered even odds of (2.00) as slight favourites with Bet365.
Christophe Galtier’s men, on the other hand, enter this duel on the back of a 3-0 win over Dunkerque and a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Reims. They’ve got a lot to prove here considering that they struggled to secure survival in the French top-flight last term. They’re chalked up at odds of (3.00) to pull off a shocking surprise here.
To see a stalemate at the end of 90 minutes is priced at a mouth-watering (3.60) with the same betting firm.
It’s worth mentioning that Galtier’s side have been a strong scoring side which would definitely pose more threat for the Goodison Park outfit. And both teams have also shipped in goals too. Thus, it won’t be out of place to see three or more goals surface here at odds of (1.70) with Bet365.
