04-04-23 Daily Football Predictions: Back stalemate for Liverpool vs Chelsea, and others

Preview

Chelsea vs Liverpool

Chelsea and Liverpool will both be seeking an immediate return to winning ways on Tuesday night after last weekend’s disappointments. Both clubs must win this game in order to maintain their chances of finishing in the top four, as the hosts are now in 11th place and the Reds are in sixth.

Last Saturday, Chelsea had a chance to become the third team this season to win four straight league games without suffering a loss, but their celebration was ruined by a 2-0 loss to Aston Villa. After the loss, the Blues were 11 points away from securing the final Champions League position, so anything less than a victory on Tuesday would be a massive letdown for Potter’s team.

The fact that Liverpool’s 4-1 loss to champions Manchester City was their third straight defeat best exemplifies the team’s erratic season under Jürgen Klopp. No matter how excellent the Reds are in big games, their road record this season should be a major concern heading into this game—three victories from 14 away games.

A period of review and recuperation over the international break proved fruitless for Liverpool, who have now lost each of their last three games – all of which have come on the road – and five of the Reds’ last seven Premier League away encounters have ended in defeat.

Leeds vs Nottingham Forest

On Tuesday night, Leeds United will host Nottingham Forest at Elland Road in a crucial match between two clubs fighting to stay in the Premier League.

The Whites are currently in the 17th position in the table, tied on points with Everton in 18th place, while Forest is in the 15th position, just one point ahead of their opponents in this match.

Before the international break, the Whites earned four points from their two league matches against Brighton & Hove Albion and Wolverhampton Wanderers, but on Saturday they lost 4-1 at Arsenal.

West Ham United’s 1-0 victory over Southampton on Sunday lifted the Hammers out of the relegation zone, dropping Gracia’s team from 16th to 17th in the standings, level on points with 18th-placed Everton, who will face Tottenham Hotspur on Monday. On Saturday afternoon, Steve Cooper’s team also played, drawing 1-1 with Wolverhampton Wanderers at the City Ground despite conceding late. The Toffees are in action before to this match against Tottenham, and the Reds are now in 15th place in the standings, just one point ahead of them. At this point in the game, there are only three points separating Wolves in 13th from Leicester City in 19th, so the fight to stay in the top division this year promises to be exciting.

Predictions

Straight Wins.

This season, Nottingham has had six victories, one of which came against Leeds two months ago. Despite Forest having a considerably worse goal differential, Nottingham is the league’s worst away team or rather is tied for last place with West Ham. They have only managed to score four goals when playing away from home, while also giving up 32 goals, which is the second-worst record in the league. Leeds looks for its strength when playing in front of its supporters, when this season they won four games, with five games ending in draws and four games ending in losses. The visiting team is in the lead when we consider the head-to-head results for this Leeds vs. Nottingham Forest forecast. Forest had three victories and two draws in their previous five meetings. Bet9ja have 1.84 odds, Paripesa have 1.85 odds and 1xBet have 1.85 odds.

After defeating Hellas Verona 1-0 in a recent league match, Juventus continued to pursue UEFA spots. After the 1-0 loss to Fiorentina, Inter Milan has gone four games without a victory in all competitions. Juventus has won five straight games in all competitions. In fact, Juventus’ sole defeat in over two months of play was a defeat to Roma at the beginning of March. Inter Milan is struggling to recover from a losing streak that has lasted four straight games. The visiting club will not be feeling too confident going into the game after recently losing to Juventus in the Italian Serie A. The best Juventus vs Inter Milan prediction would opt for a victory for the home team. Bet9ja have 2.32 odds, Paripesa have 2.36 odds and 1xBet have 2.36 odds.

Under 2.5

Leicester had the fourth-most over 2.5 goals match this season with 17 while Aston Villa played in 14 of those games. On the other hand, Leicester only had two ‘over’ matches in the past five matches, the same as the Birmingham team. When it comes to the matches Leicester and Aston Villa played against one another, three out of the past five went over the mark, or rather two remained under three goals. The first match of the current season ended with a 4-2 Leicester win. At this point, Leicester needs to stop leaking goals, and some defensive wisdom is required for this to change. Bet9ja have 1.88 odds, Paripesa have 1.94 odds and 1xBet have 1.94 odds.

Frankfurt is without a victory in seven matches following the 1-1 draw with Bochum. Union Berlin has made the most of home advantage to pick up back-to-back victories in the league with the latest being a 3-0 success over Stuttgart. The last time Frankfurt was able to get over 1.5 goals was against Wolfsburg at the start of March. Since then, the team has witnessed less than 2.5 goals in a string of games. Union Berlin is once again back among the strong defensive self. The wins over Stuttgart and Frankfurt are a big factor behind expecting less than 2.5 goals in the game by this Frankfurt vs Union Berlin prediction. Bet9ja have 1.60 odds, Paripesa have 1.62 odds and 1xBet have 1.62 odds.

Draw.

Looking for some positive results, both of these teams would welcome at least a split decision to stop the points from leaking. After drawing to Everton at home, Chelsea lost to Aston Villa on Saturday and once again find themselves in a losing battle. Liverpool would welcome a draw, it seems, after losing three straight matches, two of them in the Premier League. The hosts have played eight draw games this season while Liverpool’s number is six. Looking at their last five h2h matches, four of them ended with a draw which is quite a remarkable stat line for this Chelsea vs Liverpool prediction. Bet9ja have 3.50 odds, Paripesa have 3.58 odds and 1xBet have 3.58 odds.

Anytime Goal scorers

Mohammed Salah

The Egyptian striker once again leads Liverpool as the main scorer getting 12 goals on his record with seven assists. But, contrary to previous seasons, his team is failing to play under their potential and Salah’s goals have lost value because of the inconsistent club performances this season.  Bet9ja have 3.00 odds while Paripesa have 3.00 odds.

Choupo-Moting

Choupo-Moting is not far away from becoming the top scorer of Bayern Munich. The 34-year-old has scored in four out of his last five appearances for Bayern. Even though he was not among the goals in the victory over Freiburg, there may not be too many changes.  Bet9ja have 1.90 odds while Paripesa have 2.00 odds.

James Maddison

The 26-year-old midfielder who has played for the past five years for Leicester has been the team’s best scorer with nine goals, but also a creator of chances delivering six assists to his name. Maddison’s stock has risen significantly in the past few years and Leicester management has refused to sell him. However, they won’t have a choice but to accept an offer if the team is relegated. Bet9ja have 3.20 odds while Paripesa have 3.40 odds.
