European Rugby Challenge Cup Round 2 Bet Preview


2022 European Rugby Challenge Cup – Round 2 Bet Preview:

The second tier of European rugby gets underway once more, following an incredible weekend of opening round action. Cardiff, Toulon, Bristol, and Scarlets were the main beneficiaries on the opening weekend, with plenty of rugby still to be played between now and the end of the campaign.
Meanwhile, the likes of Bath, Perpignan and Benetton will be doing all they can to avenge opening day defeats and get back on track here.

With plenty of rugby to be played, here is a rundown of some of the European Rugby Challenge Cup Round 2 Fixtures:

Match Winner Odds:

Lions vs Stade Francais Paris

Lions – 1/4

Stade Francais Paris – 3/1

Match Preview

Two sides that will be hoping to build on unbeaten starts face off in Pool B, as Lions host Stade Francais Paris. Following their incredible draw with the Dragons last weekend, the Lions will be eager to put down a marker and assert their position as one of the favourites for the title in 2023. Meanwhile, Stade Francais Paris were made to work hard for their opening day win over Benetton, but it is a result they are sure to take confidence from. This should be a real contrast of playing styles, but Lions should get the job done, in what could be a great watch for the neutral.

Match Betting Tips

Lions to win the match – 1/4

This should be a high quality affair, between two of the most exciting sides in the competition and the Lions should prevail on home soil.

Match Winner Odds:

AC Brive vs Connacht Rugby

AC Brive – 23/10

Connacht Rugby – 3/10

Match Preview

Following a hefty opening day defeat to Cardiff, Brive will be looking to start putting points on the board as they welcome Connacht. It was a match where nothing went right for Brive against the side from the Welsh capital, but they will want to prove they do belong at this level. Connacht meanwhile picked up a solid opening round win over highly-fancies Newcastle and they will be out to back that result up here. This one will be closer than the odds suggest but the momentum could well be with Connacht.

Connacht Rugby to win the match – 3/10

Reading too much into the league table this early on is dangerous but Connacht are a good side, who should come out on top here.

Match Winner Odds:

Glasgow Warriors vs Perpignan

Glasgow Warriors – 1/25

Perpignan – 7/1

Match Preview

Glasgow Warriors will be looking to build on their impressive opening win at Bath, as they take on Perpignan. For the Warriors, staying in the hunt this season will be key – as they look to put pressure on the sides above them. Perpignan meanwhile were well beaten by Bristol last time out and they will be all too aware of the magnitude of the task here. As a side, Perpignan are never easy to beat but Glasgow should have too much for them in front of their home fans.

Glasgow Warriors to win the match – 1/25

Physicality will be the order of the day here, but the Glasgow Warriors should ultimately get the job done.
