In our words yesterday, we did say that is the stage of the season where you can expect tricky results and we did get a glimpse of that. We all knew Chelsea and Tuchel were going to lose at some point but what were the odds of West Brom winning by a 5-2 score-line?
Anyways, there is more action coming our way today and we’ll be here doing what we know how to do best with our tips.
Manchester United return to league action after the somewhat lengthy international break. They return today to face Brighton who gave them a tough outing in the first leg this season. Although a long time has passed since then and both sides are a stark contrast to what they used to be, Manchester United would have a rested and fit squad for this tie as they chase to secure their top-four spot here today. We expect the Red Devils to win this one.Bet9ja has 1.70 odds, Bet365 has 1.68 odds and 1xBet has 1.84 odds.
Tottenham have been on a slippery slope of sorts in their form after crashing out disgracefully from the Europa League just before the break. They returned to winning ways with a confident win over Aston Villa that saw them return to the form they had lost. The part isn’t clear yet for Jose’s side as they aren’t sure of what to achieve this season but they face a Newcastle team who aren’t at their very best. The Magpies would obviously pose no threat to a resurging Spurs team here today. Bet9ja has 1.67 odds, Bet365 has 1.65 odds and 1xBet has 1.71 odds.
Marseille are currently 6th in the League as they take on bottom-placed Dijon today who seem relegation bound. Marseille have been below par this season and may fail to qualify for any European competition next season but this doesn’t stop them from brushing aside today’s opponents. Dijon are without a win in their last five games which means they wouldn’t be a tough side to face. Bet9ja has 1.55 odds, Bet365 has 1.50 odds and 1xBet has 1.56 odds.
PSV are looking for a win after picking up just a point in their last two matches after what seemed to be a bad run of form before the break. Their opponents Heracles are placed 9th in the league and don’t seem to be in bad form. However, this wouldn’t matter as we can see PSV looking to restore their charge for the last European spot for next season. They will surely dig deep for this win here today. Bet9ja has 1.35 odds, Bet365 has 1.36 odds and 1xBet has 1.40 odds.
Ajax are sitting pretty at the top of the Dutch league yet again as the defending champions are 11 points clear at the top with a game in hand. Today they travel to Heerenveen who has been inconsistent in the league with just a win in their last 5 matches and has seen them drop to 10th position. Ajax would be looking to take the three points back home in a bid to build confidence for their Europa League quarterfinal tie against Roma next week. Bet9ja has 1.27 odds, Bet365 has 1.25 odds and 1xBet has 1.34 odds.

A potential decider on the winner of the Spanish La Liga trophy this season might happen in this match selected.

Stuttgart faces Werder Bremen in their return to Bundesliga action today. Both teams are mid-table sides with the matches looking to be a cracker.

There is also sure to be goals as both defences have been poor in recent game weeks. Bet9ja has 1.73 odds, Bet365 has 1.72 odds and 1xBet has 1.85 odds.
Feyenoord seem to have lost their touch this season and this has seen them stay in the 5th position which they wouldn’t be too happy with. On the other hand, their opponents in Sittard are currently and have the third-worst defensive record in the league this season. Conceding goals has been a norm for this Sittard team and PSV would be looking to take advantage of that today. No wins in their last two matches have seen them drop in the standings but we know goals would be seen in this match. Bet9ja has 1.48 odds, Bet365 has 1.47 odds and 1xBet has 1.55 odds.
The Portuguese magician was the saviour for United the last time these two sides met in what was a very memorable encounter. The talisman has arguably been the best midfielder in the league, providing vital goals and assists for his team. He would be looking to continue that form and help his side win as three points would also put a gap between them and Leicester City in their race for the top four spots. Bet9ja have 2.60 odds while Bet365 have 2.40.
He was Impressive at the beginning of the season leading the charge and scoring the goals for the team but he has had a dip in form which saw them crash out of the UCL and lose some vital points already. He would be looking to prove his mettle by scoring in what could be their most important match all season as a loss here would see them start to drag with the other three teams for the title late in the season. Bet9ja have 2.75 odds while Bet365 have 2.50.
Harry Kane has undoubtedly been the best player for his team this campaign and he proved by carrying his goal-scoring form to national colors during the break. After having a say in their ties, he returns to league action against Newcastle who is sure to struggle defensively, he would relish this chance and look to get on the scoresheet once again. Bet9ja have 1.90 odds while Bet365 have 1.66.
He just can’t stop scoring at the moment as he is the in-form player in our selection today. He has proven to be good in three consecutive picks with us here and we see no reason why he shouldn’t be here once again. He had a lackluster performance with the national team but he would be returning to the league refreshed for Ajax and we see him putting that past behind him. Bet9ja have 1.75 odds while Bet365 have 1.66.
