05-04-23 Daily Football Predictions: Back goals for Manchester United vs Brentford, and others

Preview

Manchester United vs Brentford

Brentford will look to pour further doubt into Manchester United’s season when they travel to Old Trafford in midweek. Tottenham is one point ahead of Manchester United in fourth place in the standings, thus the battle for a place in the Champions League could be close.

They played Newcastle on the road last weekend and fell 2-0. Understandably, Manchester United lost that game because the home team had 22 shots on goal while the visitors only had six.

A run of three Premier League games without a win has left the Red Devils’ position in the top four under threat with Erik ten Hag admitting to key attitude issues in his squad after the defeat at Newcastle.

Brentford thumped United 4-0 in August and harbor genuine hopes of European football under Thomas Frank, although Brighton denied them a vital three points in the weekend as they stretched their unbeaten run to three games.

RB Leipzig vs Dortmund

RB Leipzig takes on Borussia Dortmund at the Red Bull Arena in the quarter-finals of the DFB Pokal on Wednesday, April 5th. Two clubs dreaming of cup glory meet in the competition’s last eight this week.

After a shaky start to the season in which they only managed three victories in their first eleven games, RB Leipzig went on an 18-game unbeaten streak across all competitions. The club appeared to be in excellent shape as they even drew 1:1 with Manchester City in the first leg of the Champions League playoffs.

Yet, Manchester City humiliated RB Leipzig in Manchester by defeating them 7:0 in the matchup between the two teams. Following that devastating defeat, their momentum completely changed, and they went on to lose two more games against Mainz and Bochum.

RB Leipzig is the Cup defending champions, but this quarter-final Cup game is coming after three uninspiring defeats in all competitions. Borussia Dortmund was constantly in 2nd or 3rd place in Bundesliga in recent years, but this season, they are very close to winning it for the first time after the 2011/2012 season. After 25 rounds, Borussia Dortmund secured 1st place on the league table, but in the last game (in the 26th round), they lost a direct duel with Bayern 4:2 and dropped back to second place – two points behind Bayern.

Predictions

Straight Wins.

Fiorentina put their nine-match winning streak on the line when they travel to take on Cremonese in the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia on Wednesday. Fiorentina is one of Italy’s most in-form outfits and their 1-0 win at Inter Milan on Saturday in Serie A was richly deserved following yet another convincing display. La Viola has now won nine fixtures on the spin in all competitions and they should have too much momentum in the tank for Cremonese in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-finals on Wednesday. The hosts have won just once at home this season and our first Cremonese vs Fiorentina prediction recommends opposing them again against their rampant visitors. Bet9ja have 1.75 odds, Paripesa have 1.80 odds and 1xBet have 1.80 odds.

The Hammers did just enough to defeat fellow relegation rivals Southampton at the London Stadium and now play host to a Newcastle side that beat Man Utd on Sunday and moved above the Red Devils and into 3rd place in the Premier League table. Newcastle has won three of their last seven league meetings with the Hammers, losing just once during that period. West Ham’s form has improved of late with a win and a draw in their last two league games but the Magpies are on three games winning streak in the Premier League and we’re backing Eddie Howe’s men to secure another 3pts on Wednesday night. Bet9ja have 2.18 odds, Paripesa have 2.12 odds and 1xBet have 2.12 odds.

BTTS (YES)

Ten Hag’s men will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing defeat at Newcastle on Sunday, while Brentford will be hoping to put in the kind of performance that saw the Bees thrash Man Utd 4-0 in the pair’s reverse league fixture. We’re not convinced that the defenses are going to come out on top this Wednesday as Man United have conceded goals in four of their last six matches in all competitions, while both teams have scored in four of Brentford’s last six league games. The goals seem to flow when these two teams go head-to-head and we’re predicting more of the same in their latest encounter. Bet9ja have 1.68 odds, Paripesa have 1.72 odds and 1xBet have 1.72 odds.

Over 2.5

This RB Leipzig vs Borussia Dortmund prediction tips into the goals markets where a stake on the over 2.5 totals line appeals at the offer prices. Encounters between these attack-minded outfits have routinely set pulses racing in recent years and incredibly, eight of the last nine skirmishes between Dortmund and Leipzig have featured at least three goals. With a berth in the semi-finals up for grabs on Wednesday, expect more cut and thrust when the sides clash again. Bet9ja have 1.50 odds, Paripesa have 1.53 odds and 1xBet have 1.53 odds.

Manchester United has no reason to contest the outcome of their weekend trip to St James’ Park. Newcastle consistently had the better of the two teams, and goals in the second half from Willock and Wilson gave the Magpies a 2-0 victory that moved them above Manchester United in the Premier League standings. Since 2021, all four of these matches between these two clubs, including one friendly, have seen over 2.5 goals scored. Brentford enters this midweek encounter off of a thrilling 3-3 tie with Brighton, while Man Utd has lost three of its past six league and cup games with at least four goals scored. Bet9ja have 1.68 odds, Paripesa have 1.72 odds and 1xBet have 1.72 odds.

Anytime Goal scorers

Ivan Toney

Ivan Toney, the talisman and top striker for Brentford, is proving his value to the Premier League and the England team. Top teams will be seeking to sign the 27-year-old this summer as he is one of the Premier League’s most reliable goal scorers. This weekend, we expect Toney to trouble the Man Utd defense, and we wouldn’t be shocked to see the England international score again. Bet9ja have 3.50 odds while Paripesa have 3.00 odds.

Emre Can

Emre scored from the spot for Dortmund in their 4-2 loss at Bayern Munich on Saturday evening and the holding midfielder has a knack for getting his name in lights in bigger games. Indeed, Emre also scored for Dortmund when they beat Leipzig 2-1 in March and the 29-year-old could be a key performer again on Wednesday. Bet9ja have 12.00 odds while Paripesa have 10.00 odds.

Jonathan Ikone

Jonathan Ikoné gave Fiorentina the lead when they won 2-0 at Cremonese in Serie A last month and the French winger will be determined to make a similar impact on Wednesday. The 24-year-old has notched three goals and four assists in all competitions for La Viola overall this term. Bet9ja have 5.20 odds while Paripesa have 5.00 odds.
