It was another exciting round of results yesterday. Starting with the Premier League, there’s a new leader in town after Manchester United went three points clear at the top with a win over Burnley.
For our straight win section, it was a good outing as Everton and Vittese also claimed wins as we predicted. Only AC Milan denied us a perfect run following their stalemate with Torino.
For the over 2.5 section, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla failed to yield that with a 2-0 score-line in favor of Simeone’s men. One more goal would have sealed the deal. Everton and Wolves played out to a 2-1 score-line and that was another correct entry.
For the goal-scorer section, none of our picks failed to score. Rashford and Suarez had quiet evenings in their respective games while Richarlison only got about 15 minutes of total action for Everton.
However, a good number of games are on the cards today and we’ll be aiming to return to the near-perfect streak we’ve seen for some time now.
Manchester City welcome Brighton to the Etihad stadium in search of their fourth successive Premier League win. Alongside United, the Citizens are also up there as the most in-form side in the league and we can see them keeping their momentum with a convincing win today. Bet365 have 1.14 odds, Bet9ja have 1.17 and 1xbet have 1.21.
Elsewhere, Tottenham look to pick up their form and build something of a winning run. They have a perfect chance to do that against a Fulham side with two league wins all season. Fulham are rooted in the relegation zone and we can see Jose Mourinho’s men taking all the initiative to topple their London rivals tonight. Bet365 have 1.40 odds while Bet9ja and 1xbet have 1.44 odds.
Off to the Eredivisie, Feyernood welcome Zwolle to the De Kuip stadium for a crunch clash. Victory for Feyernood could see them go joint-top and there’ll be all to play for. Feyernood also have three wins from their last five league goals and they’ll be fancy their chances of adding yet another tonight. Bet365 have 1.44 odds, Bet9ja have 1.47 and 1xbet have 1.48.
Moving to Italy, Inter travel to the Stadio Artemio Franchi to take on Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia. After losing to Sampdoria and drawing to Roma last time out, Inter will be eager to get their first win of 2021 and we can see them doing just that against Fiorentina. Bet365 have 1.66 odds, Bet9ja have 1.72 and 1xbet have 1.73.
Still in Italy, another heavyweight in Juventus will welcome Genoa to the Allianz stadium also for the Coppa Italia clash. Without much explanation, it’s easy to see why we’re tipping the reigning champions to dispatch their opponents and advance to the next round of the competition. Bet365 have 1.33 odds, 1xbet have 1.39 and Bet9ja have 1.40.
Over 2.5 Goals
Over to France, PSG and Marseille face off in a big game for the Trophée des Champions (TDC). For the second time this century, the Trophée des Champions (TDC) will also be an edition of ‘Le Classique’. Given past record, PSG might be favorites to take home the title but their inconsistency so far this season leaves the game open. Hence, we’re going for a tip of at least three goals instead. Bet9ja have 1.47 odds, 1xbet have 1.48 and Bet365 have it better at 1.53.
Also in the Coppa Italia, Napoli will welcome Serie B side Empoli to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona. All things going as expected, we expect Gattuso’s men to take the win here and in convincing fashion as well. It could be safe to go for the goal market for this one. Bet9ja have 1.50 odds, Bet365 have 1.53 and 1xbet have 1.55.
Coming off the back of a 3-1 win against Chelsea, Manchester City will be brewing with confidence for the game against Brighton. We already tipped Guardiola’s men to win and we can see at least three goals coming through in this one. Bet9ja have 1.44 odds, 1xbet have 1.47 and Bet365 have 1.50.
Off to the Eredivisie, two high-flying sides in PSV and AZ Alkmaar will lock horns at the Philips Stadion. Both sides are unbeaten in their last five games and that makes a winner quite difficult to predict. PSV are still favorites to win though as a victory will take them at least two points clear at the top of the table. In summary, we’re expecting both sides to take it to each other and that should translate to goals at both ends. Bet9ja have 1.48 odds while Bet365 and 1xbet have 1.53.
Juventus come into the game against Genoa as big favorites to advance to the next round. In fact, anything short of a victory and a convincing one to go with will go down as ‘disappintment’ for the Bianconeri. We’re tipping them to follow the script and deliver at least three goals tonight. Bet9ja have 1.58 odds while Bet365 and 1xbet have 1.60.
Anytime Goal scorer
Last time out, Ronaldo continued his impressive form this season with a goal against Sassuolo. Knowing the Portuguese, he’ll most likely ask to take part against Genoa with a personal aim of grabbing as much goals as he can in that fixture. He’s definitely a clear-cut candidate to score provided he’s on the pitch. Bet365 have 1.50 odds while Bet9ja have 1.55.
The Manchester City star has only four league goals this season but a game against Brighton represents a good chance to get back in the goals. Aguero is expected to miss out once again and that could leave Sterling with perhaps some motivation to find the back of the net. Bet365 have 1.66 odds while Bet9ja have it better at 2.25.
The Italian forward on loan from Everton has impressed for PSG so far this season. Kean has bagged a respectable 13 goals in 22 games for the French giants and has also scored in his last two games for the club. He is on top form and confidence at the moment and now could be a good time to back him for more goals. Bet365 have 1.90 odds for him to score while Bet9ja has it better at 2.50.
The Englishman has scored 10 league goals for Spurs this term and has formed a formidable duo with Son Heung-Min. Both players got back in the goals last time out against Leeds and another similar story could be on the cards today. However, Kane has that edge being Spurs designated penalty taker and we have a hunch he could get on the score-sheet tonight. Bet365 are offering 1.50 odds while Bet9ja have theirs at 1.70.
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.
