We had yet another decent run with our tips last time out and we’ll be aiming to do even better today. There were some shock results though, with Chelsea dropping points against Burnley and Barcelona dropping points in stunning fashion. Regardless, it was a decent run of games and our tips have been coming along with a rather impressive win-rate.
After yesterday’s results, we’ll aim to do even better today and keep up with our current impressive form as we bring you the most likely tips and betting predictions to come through across action from Europe’s top five leagues.
Game to watch out for: AC Milan vs Inter
One of football’s greatest rivalries resumes when the long-time tenants of the San Siro lock horns once again. It’s AC Milan’s turn to play host and they couldn’t be in better form, having won ten of their opening 11 Serie A (SA) fixtures for the first time in their history, and are now gunning for an eighth successive league victory for the first time since September 2006.
But this is the Milan derby, where the form guide often goes out the window as passion and pride take over. The ‘Rossoneri’ will have to rediscover themselves in this particular fixture, as they’ve actually lost the last three ‘home’ SA derbies, and have only lost more in succession just once before. It is a game that could go either way and all eyes will be on Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has history with both clubs.
We’re backing in-form Arsenal to win this weekend as they have been in red hot form in recent weeks with a string of wins that has seen them go within the reach of the top four spots. The Gunners have won four of their last five league games against Watford and have also won four of their last six matches in all competitions. Watford have had trouble scoring as they have not been prolific up front this campaign. Bet9ja has 1.38 odds, Paripesa has 1.41 odds and 1xBet has 1.41 odds.
Two of the Premier League’s top four go head-to-head this weekend as West Ham entertain Liverpool. The Reds have the edge in today’s fixture as they seem to be the more in-form side going into this fixture. Liverpool missed the opportunity to still keep up with leaders Chelsea as they dropped points weirdly in their 2-2 draw with Brighton last weekend. Today, they would surely want to keep up the chase and go for the win, which is why we have selected them here today. Bet9ja has 1.76 odds, Paripesa has 1.79 odds and 1xBet has 1.79 odds.
Roma sit 4th in the Serie A table heading into today’s trip to newly-promoted Venezia. The hosts now sit two places above the relegation zone with a lot to consider if they want to remain here next season. Roma has won four of the pair’s last five meetings in Italy’s top-flight. Venezia have lost two of their last three in the league and has only picked up one win from their last six matches, while Roma’s form hasn’t been much better but they have won two of their last five outings in Serie A. With Roma being the side in a better form, they are sure to take home the three points. Bet9ja has 1.54 odds, Paripesa has 1.57 odds and 1xBet has 1.57 odds.
While both teams have only managed to win once in the last five games, Atletico Madrid have been in much better form if we only consider their La Liga matches. Furthermore, Valencia were on a 7-game winless streak before they beat Villarreal in the last round. With that in mind, and taking into account that Atletico beat Valencia in three of their last five meetings, our prediction is for Atletico Madrid to win this match. Retaining the league title is their top priority this season and a win here will back that claim. Bet9ja has 1.94 odds, Paripesa has 1.99 odds and 1xBet has 1.99 odds
PSV were held to a goalless draw away to Monaco in the Europa League on Thursday. Before that, they ran riot in a 5-2 home win over FC Twente in league action last Saturday. That victory helped them hold on to the second spot in the league, with 24 points garnered from 11 matches. PSV has nine wins from their previous 10 matches against Fortuna Sittard. Despite the absence of several players, Roger Schmidt’s side still has more than enough quality to comfortably secure victory. Bet9ja has 1.30 odds, Paripesa has 1.31 odds and 1xBet has 1.31 odds.
Over 2.5 Goals
AC Milan are unbeaten in Serie A with 11-games played but now they face one of their toughest games of the season at home to arch-rivals Inter Milan. Inter have had the better of their recent exchanges with AC and head into this game as the bookmaker’s favorites to win. Regardless, we’re expecting a very close and competitive 90-minutes on Sunday with a host of goals from both ends. There is a good chance that both teams will score on Sunday as that has been the case in four of the last six meetings between these two local rivals in all competitions. Bet9ja has 1.65 odds, Paripesa has 1.72 odds and 1xBet has 1.72 odds.
Based on recent performances by both teams, the fixture between Ajax and Go Ahead Eagles would be a lovely one to watch as they both have the same points shared in the past five games played (4W 1L 1D). In those games, both teams have scored at least a goal causing us to select them here today as the right candidates for this pick. Both teams would surely find the back of the net as it is going to be a close call for the winner here today but we sure are seeing goals. Bet9ja has 1.13 odds, Paripesa has 1.17 odds and 1xBet has 1.17 odds.
As Napoli take on Verona, we know that these two sides both have plenty of goals in them and we expect that to be a theme this weekend in what should be an entertaining game of football. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in three of Napoli’s last six outings as well as in five of Verona’s last six league games, so you can see just why we’re not expecting a low-scoring affair between the pair this Sunday. Napoli have only failed to score in one of their last six matches in all competitions which is a very good statistic for this pick. Bet9ja has 1.55 odds, Paripesa has 1.65 odds and 1xBet has 1.65 odds.
The ‘Reds’ have been particularly electric on their travels, scoring at least three times in each of their last six PL away games. West Ham has also been in blistering form with just 2 points away from Liverpool and is off the back a 4-1 thrashing of Aston Villa last weekend. Defensive frailties were shown by Klopp’s side in their draw to Brighton last weekend and we know David Moyes would likely exploit this. We are in for a delight and flurry of goals from two of the most in-form Premier League (PL) teams. Bet9ja has 1.46 odds, Paripesa has 1.49 odds and 1xBet has 1.49 odds.
Arsenal scored over 2.5 goals in their last game against Watford, a 3-2 win back in 2020. The Gunners scored over 2.5 goals in two of their last three home games in the Premier League, against Tottenham and Aston Villa, while Watford recently conceded 5-goals when they made the trip to Anfield. With Watford having one of the worst defenses in the league currently, this is one of the pretty good choices of the week. Bet9ja has 1.57 odds, Paripesa has 1.63 odds and 1xBet has 1.63 odds.
It sure is a very difficult task to exclude the Egyptian King Mo Salah in this selection with his plethora of goals already in the league this season. The Egyptian international has netted 10-goals in the Premier League alone already this season which would mean a goal for each game played already in the league this season. We know he can produce a lot of magic we’re expecting that today. Bet9ja has 1.850 odds while Paripesa has 1.66 odds.
Ibrahimovic might be in the twilight of his career but the big Swede has netted 3-goals in the league for AC Milan this season and we’re backing him to score against his former club this weekend. Ibrahimovic has had his injury concerns this season but is fit and ready to face Inter Milan and he is a striker that loves the big occasions. A savior for AC Milan a lot this season when called upon he would be the right inspiration to help them push for the win and also the title today. Bet9ja has 2.80 odds while Paripesa has 2.00 odds.
Haller is no doubt in good hands in Ajax as he looks rejuvenated since his move here to the Dutch club. He has netted 7 goals already in the Dutch League and now has 7 UCL goals to his name. He has scored in four successive UCL fixtures, a personal record that saw him help Ajax into the next round of fixtures. His form in the Eredivisie is impressive also with his last goal coming just two games away. His goal against Dortmund in the UCL would surely spark up a need to score today again. Bet9ja has 1.50 odds while Paripesa has 1.40 odds.
Suarez has been in red hot form for Atletico Madrid this season, netting 6-goals in La Liga so far. We’re backing the Uruguayan striker to get on the scoreboard once again against Valencia here today, with a very impressive goal-scoring record when facing them every season in the La Liga. He is one striker who knows how to score against them. He was absent amongst the goals in their past two wins but he is sure to score today. Bet9ja has 2.50 odds while Paripesa has 2.05 odds.
Aubameyang is the top scorers in the league for Arsenal this season with 4-goals and we’re backing the Gabon international to score a goal against Watford this weekend. Aubameyang has scored the first goal for Arsenal this season on two occasions and he is the obvious choice to find the back of the net against Watford this weekend. He seems to be loving this new Arteta system and he is enjoying his playing time being the dangerman upfront. Bet9ja has 2.00 odds while Paripesa has 1.72.
Football Lover. All-round junkie of the beautiful game. Could be found watching football most of the time. If not he’s writing about them or making some punditry you don’t agree with. A certain bias for Arsenal and Santos FC.
