A lot of games will come in thick and fast in the next couple of days. Starting form today, we have a lot of games across Europe’s top five leagues and we’ll carry on with what we know how to do best.
It’s a good day to have a go at the bookies and we’ll be giving you the best well-researched tips across today’s action.
Despite going unbeaten in nine of their last ten Ligue 1 (L1) matches (W7, D2, L1), and securing eight clean sheets in the process, PSG remain in third – their lowest placing after 24 rounds since 2014/15. PSG take on Nice at home today and we’re tipping them for a win to move closer to the top of Ligue 1. They have the best home record this season and we’re expecting an easy win today. Bet365 have 1.16 odds, Bet9ja have 1.23 and 1xbet have 1.24.
Lyon are favorites to win when they take on Montpellier today. Sitting just two points below the Ligue 1 top spot, in-form Lyon have lost just one of their last 21 league matches (W14, D6), with 85.71% of their wins during that period being accompanied by a HT lead. As ever, starting well will be a priority, especially as they are the only side to have won every league fixture (of 13) in which they scored first this campaign. Bet365 have 1.33 odds, Bet9ja have 1.40 and 1xbet have 1.43.
Serie A leaders AC Milan travel to take on Spezia as they look to maintain their title charge. For obvious reasons, the Rossoneri are expected to win this one. To go with, Spezia have been disappointing at home, picking up just one SA win here (D3, L6) with no other side registering fewer points when playing at home. Bet365 have 1.45 odds, Bet9ja have 1.50 and 1xbet have 1.53.
Unstoppable Ajax have earned 50 points in their first 20 games for just the second time in the last decade, thanks much to a mammoth tally of 15 HT leads. They take on an in-form Heracles side who are unbeaten in their last four games. However, we’re tipping the reigning champions to do their thing and brush aside their opponents. Bet365 have 1.28 odds, 1xbet have 1.33 and Bet9ja have 1.34.
In-form Sevilla take on bottom-side Huesca and it looks like one-way traffic already. Fresh from beating Barcelona in midweek, Julen Lopetegui’s side will come into this game brewing with confidence. Four wins in a row and only a point behind the La Liga top two, Sevilla on course to match their last top-two finish from the 1956/57 campaign. Bet365 have 1.53 odds, Bet9ja have 1.55 and 1xbet have 1.59.
Over 2.5 Goals
With 44 goals to their name, Barcelona are the highest scoring side in La Liga this season. They take on an Alaves side just outside the relegation zone and this fixture could well bring goals. Four out of Barcelona’s last five league games have seen over 2.5 goals and we expect more of the same today. Bet9ja have 1.46 odds while 1xbet and Bet365 have 1.50 odds.
Two attacking sides aiming for the title will lock horns when Leicester welcome Liverpool to the King Power stadium. The Foxes have scored 2+ goals in four of their last six home league games (W3, D1, L2). This shows that when the ‘Foxes’ get on a roll they’re hard to stop. On the other hand, Liverpool have blown hot and cold so far but you can expect they’ll at least put in a good fight today. We could easily see both sides score and that’s why we’re going for this tip. Bet9ja have 1.68 odds, Bet365 have 1.72 and 1xbet have 1.78.
Borussia Dortmund are in dire danger of being cast away from the European qualification spots, following a run of just one win in five league games (W1, D1, L3). The last two of those defeats both saw Dortmund concede exactly twice in the middle third (31’-60’) of play without response. Hoffenheim are also in a battle to escape relegation and the ambition from both teams could lead to goals at both ends. Bet9ja have 1.33 odds, Bet365 have 1.36 and 1xbet have 1.39.
We already tipped Ajax to beat Heracles and we don’t need to explain much why it’ll be over 2.5 goals. With 66 goals so far, Ajax are the highest goal-scorers in all of Europe this term. Four of their last five games have also seen over 2.5 goals and we can see it coming through once again today. Bet9ja have 1.40 odds, 1xbet have 1.42 and Bet365 have 1.44.
The big Swede remains in good form so far this season with 14 goals to his name. He is also in contention for the Capocannoniere award. Last time out against Crotone, he surpassed 500 club career goals with a brace against Crotone and you can back him to get a goal or two today once again. Bet365 have 1.61 odds while Bet9ja have 1.75 for him to score.
Messi was instrumental off the bench in Barcelona’s 3-2 win over Real Betis last time out in La Liga. He is second on the La Liga scoring charts and he’ll be fired up to regain top spot. More so, he has a good record against Alaves and he’s surely a top shout to get in on the goals today. Bet365 have 1.44 odds while Bet9ja have theirs at 1.55.
The Premier League’s top scorer will be eager to get his side back firing after a humiliating 4-1 loss to rivals Manchester City last weekend. The Egyptian has scored five times across Liverpool’s last five competitive games, and thrice against the East Midlanders in the PL. If the Reds need a moment of magic or individual brilliance to break down the Foxes, Salah is the likely man. Bet365 have 1.80 odds while Bet9ja have it better at 2.20.
They said he was ‘finished’ but he’s currently top scorer in La Liga with 16 goals and firing on all cylinders. He has scored a number of braces this term, including free-kicks and special headers. He has been the perfect signing for Diego Simeone and we’re backing him to score once again tonight. Bet9ja have 1.90 odds while Bet365 have it better at 2.10.
With 13 goals scored so far, only Mbappe has scored more goals than Depay this season. He is on decent form at the moment and has scored three goals in his last two games for Lyon. Once again, we have a hunch he could get on the score-sheet tonight. Bet9ja have 1.90 odds while Bet365 have 1.95.
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.
