The Champions League and Europa League group stages are over but we still have games today. League games in midweek at this stage of the season remind us we are close to the festive season where games come in thick and fast.
There will be lots of midweek league and cup fixtures played between now and the end of the year and we’ll be here to cover it all as always.
We will take into account the fact that teams will rotate players and all but we will make available the best tips of the day as we usually do.
There are a couple games available today and we’ll be bringing you the best picks of the day as we usually do.
Wolves take on Chelsea at the Molineux stadium tonight and we’re tipping the Blues to get back to winning ways. Everton ended Chelsea’s 17-game unbeaten run with a 1-0 win at the weekend and we can see Frank Lampard’s men taking the win today. Wolves are also on poor form and only have one win in their five games. Betway are offering 1.69 odds while Bet9ja and 1xbet have 1.70.
Elsewhere, Manchester City welcomes West Brom to the Etihad stadium and we’re also expecting a win for Pep Guardiola’s men. Coming off the back of a derby draw, City will be eager to continue their winning run. West Brom have six points all season and have only recorded one win since day one. Sadly, we see them losing yet again today. Not so much value though as Bet9ja and Betway have 1.11 odds while 1xbet are offering 1.13.
Off to the Serie A, Udinese welcome bottom of the table Crotone to the Dacia Arena. Crotone have only one win and five points all season while Udinese are unbeaten in their last four games in the league. We expect the home side to take all three points today. Bet9ja and Betway have 1.67 odds while 1xbet has 1.70 odds.
Finally, Real Madrid take on Athletic Bilbao on home turf and they are favorites to win once again. Over the past few weeks, Zidane has turned around the atmosphere at Los Blancos, starting with a win against Borussia Monchengladbach. Coming off the back of a derby win against Atletico, we expect them to claim their third league win today. Bet9ja have 1.48 odds, Betway 1.52 and 1xbet 1.53.
Over 2.5 Goals
Borussia Dortmund lost 5-1 to Stuggart at the weekend and Lucien Favre was sacked afterwards. We can’t say how they will respond in their game today but we’re expecting a good number of goals when they take on Werder Bremen. Bet9ja and Betway have 1.56 odds while 1xbet have it at 1.63.
Eintracht Frankfurt also take on Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga and it’s a game with a good potential to see goals from both sides. Both sides have seen goals in their last few games and we expect it to carry on today. Bet9ja have 1.48 odds, Betway at 1.49 and 1xbet have it at 1.53.
Finally, we already tipped Chelsea to claim the win against Wolves and we can see a good number of goals in that fixture as well. Both sides will surely go out on the attack and it can translate to goals at the Molineux. There could be value here with Bet9ja offering 1.98 odds, 1xbet at 2.00 odds and Betway at 2.02.
The Frenchman has been in decent form of late and it has coincided with an upturn of fortunes for Zidane and company. With Real Madrid aiming for their third successive league win, he is the number one name to get on the back of the net. Bet9ja have 1.90 odds for him to score while Betway have it at 1.92.
The Chelsea forward is proving to be a selection headache for Frank Lampard. He has impressed when he’s been called upon and already boasts a good goal tally this season. The Frenchman could be handed a start against Wolves and he is also a good name to get in on the goals. There could be value here with Bet9ja offering 2.60 odds and Betway offering 2.63.
With Aguero a doubt for this fixture and Gabriel Jesus not scoring as much as Pep would have loved, Sterling of course remains a goal threat and there is just a hunch he could get his name on the score-sheet today. Betway have 1.83 odds and Bet9ja have it at 1.85.
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.
