The weekend games come to a climactic end, with the second round of fixtures from the European games across the continent. There would be seeing some action this midweek across Europe in a few days. Today we expect this weekend to be action-packed with the teams ready and raring to go.
We have carefully curated the best options from the fixtures this week. We are certain of a near hit after today’s predictions.
On Sunday, April 16, West Ham takes on Arsenal at the London Stadium in the Premier League of England. Ahead of their matchup with West Ham on Sunday, Arsenal has won seven of their past eight league games. Even though the tenacious Gunners had won seven straight games prior to their two-point loss at Anfield last Saturday, they will enter London as the favorites to defeat West Ham on Sunday. Given that the Irons’ manager David Moyes is historically bad at orchestrating victories against the division’s stronger teams, the smart money remains on the visitors in this matchup as Arsenal have defeated their city rivals in four of the clubs’ five meetings. Bet9ja have 1.56 odds, Paripesa have 1.58 odds and 1xBet have 1.58 odds.
In their previous 11 Serie A away games, Udinese has only won two games, and they face a difficult test on Sunday at Roma. Roma won 1-0 against Torino last weekend to move up to third place in Serie A, and with their hold on Champions League qualifying starting to tighten, the Giallorossi will be driven to pick up more points on Sunday. The opponents, Udinese, have lost nine of their past 11 away league games, and they might have trouble on the road again against Jose Mourinho’s well-organized team. In light of this, we start our football betting advice with a home victory prediction. Bet9ja have 1.94 odds, Paripesa have 1.94 odds and 1xBet have 1.94 odds.
On April 16 in Italy’s Serie A, Sassuolo and Juventus square off at the MAPEI Stadium – Città del Tricolore. In their last three encounters, Juve has triumphed over Sassuolo each time. When they were defeated 2-1 by Lazio last time out, Juventus suffered yet another significant defeat. Despite this, the Old Lady has been ruthless this season against Serie A’s lower-tier competition, winning each of their last five meetings with teams from the bottom half. Sassuolo come into that group, and since 2021, Juventus has triumphed in five of their past six encounters with their hosts. Our first Sassuolo vs. Juventus prediction for today suggests the visitor will see more success in light of that record. Bet9ja have 2.05 odds, Paripesa have 2.08 odds and 1xBet have 2.08 odds.
This critical round-31 match pits two of the Ligue 1 teams that are in danger of being demoted against one another. Strasbourg is the first team below the relegation zone line and has a five-point lead over Ajaccio despite only winning once in their last five games. If we take a closer look, the visiting team has dropped eight of its last ten games or five straight games. Ajaccio did, however, triumph in a high-scoring contest against Strasbourg in the season’s opening game. In their last five meetings, both teams have two victories each, with one match ending in a tie. Bet9ja have 1.76 odds, Paripesa have 1.85 odds and 1xBet have 1.85 odds.
When Union Berlin hosts fourth-from-bottom Bochum on Sunday, they will put their undefeated home record in the Bundesliga to the test. While Union Berlin has recently struggled in cup tournaments, they continue to play well in the Bundesliga, and their performances at Stadion An der Alten Försterei have been flawless. The Iron Ones have never lost at home in the league. They will have another chance to take advantage of home-field advantage on Sunday when they face struggling Bochum. The visitors have only won twice on the road in the Premier League since August. We advise betting against them in the cheap match outcome markets. Bet9ja have 1.60 odds, Paripesa have 1.65 odds and 1xBet have 1.65 odds.
In order to increase their chances of scoring against Emmen, who are trying to avoid relegation, Ajax will seek to open up the scoring opportunities. The odds for this forecast between Ajax and Emmen are fair and might be satisfactory for most bettors. Since their debut game in 2011, there have only been eight contests between these sides, and two of those contests were friendly encounters. Six of those games, in terms of this pick, had over four-and-a-half goals. Ajax leads the Eredivisie in over 4.5 goal matches this season with 11, while Emmen has only featured in three. Bet9ja have 1.24 odds, Paripesa have 1.27 odds and 1xBet have 1.27 odds.
While Kortrijk will work extremely hard to avoid being relegated, Royal Antwerp has top three aspirations for this match. The visitors are 7 points above the danger zone and in position 14, meaning they are likely to survive the drop. Therefore, we predict that this game will end with more than 2.5 goals in the over/under-betting market. It’s a match between a side that presses hard and a team that is in disarray. Therefore, Kortrijk will be more concerned about the shoddy defending while Antwerp will try to score more goals. Bet9ja have 1.63 odds, Paripesa have 1.58 odds and 1xBet have 1.58 odds.
Prior to their most recent Bundesliga match at Wolfsburg on Sunday, Bayer Leverkusen has won five straight games. Xabi Alonso and Die Werkself have been a delight to watch lately for Bayer Leverkusen, as over 2.5 goals have been scored in nine of their previous 13 games across all competitions. When Leverkusen and Wolfsburg last faced off, in October, four goals were scored. Also 4.16 goals per 90 minutes have been scored in five of Die Wolfe’s last six home games. Our initial Wolfsburg vs. Bayer Leverkusen prediction suggests betting on over 2.5 goals once more as this matchup has the potential to be another interesting one. Bet9ja have 1.73 odds, Paripesa have 1.79 odds and 1xBet have 1.79 odds.
On Sunday, Lecce will face Sampdoria in a Serie A matchup between two struggling teams. At the Stadio Comunale Via del Mare, we were betting on the net to ripple more than 2.5 times. Sampdoria’s schedule has been more open, and just their previous four games alone averaged an enormous 4.5 goals per 90 minutes, reflecting how desperate they are for points as they attempt to mount a late comeback. On Sunday, more excitement may be in store, and our second Lecce vs. Sampdoria prediction predicts more goals. Bet9ja have 1.82 odds, Paripesa have 1.92 odds and 1xBet have 1.92 odds.
Gent wants to be in the top four, therefore this will be a fascinating matchup. They are currently in fourth position, tied with fifth-placed Club Brugge on 55 points, and 11 points behind third-placed Antwerp. A score of more than 2.5 goals is highly likely. Gent’s recent run of success has been focused on scoring as many goals as they can, while the hosts have been allowing a lot of goals to be scored. Mechelen lost four of their last five games, and in each of those losses, they gave up at least two goals, with the majority coming with three or more. Gent, on the other hand, has won three of its past five Pro League games by a score of three goals or more. Bet9ja have 1.58 odds, Paripesa have 1.63 odds and 1xBet have 1.63 odds.
Anytime Goal scorers
Brazilian hotshot Gabriel Jesus has returned from injury with a bang for Arsenal . He followed up a brace against Leeds on April 1st with another goal at Liverpool last weekend. The 26-year-old brings a fresh dimension to the Gunners’ frontline. Jesus should be his usual bundle of energy against West Ham on Sunday. Brimming with confidence, Jesus should be a real threat again. Bet9ja have 2.75 odds while Paripesa have 2.40 odds.
Florian Wirtz is one of German football’s hottest properties at present. The 19-year-old grabbed another goal in midweek in Bayer’s 1-1 draw with Union St. Gilloise in the Europa League. Wirtz has now lodged nine goal contributions in his last ten appearances for Leverkusen and he is a reliable provider of match-changing moments. Wirtz looks like a strong option in the anytime goalscorer market again on Sunday. Bet9ja have 5.00 odds while Paripesa have 4.60 odds.
Marcel Sabitzer has been deployed in a more advanced role by Erik ten Hag of late and as a result. The loanee’s goal threat has started to climb. The 29-year-old had several chances to score against Everton last weekend in the league. Though he converted two opportunities against Sevilla on Thursday. Sabitzer’s runs into the box could trouble the Tricky Trees’ defense on Sunday. Our second Nottingham Forest prediction advises bettors to consider a stake on the midfielder in the anytime goalscorer stakes. Bet9ja have 5.75 odds while Paripesa have 5.60 odds.
Trincao has been the player on top form over the last few weeks. The 23-year-old has been able to hit four goals in his last four appearances in all competitions. This includes a hat-trick in the win over Casa Pia. Even though his performance against Juventus was quite mediocre in the midweek Europa League match. Sporting Lisbon vs Arouca betting tips expect the player to bounce back almost immediately. Bet9ja have 2.30 odds while Paripesa have 2.25 odds.
With three goals in his last three Bundesliga appearances. Kevin Behrens is in excellent form for Union Berlin and the 32-year-old has bagged nearly half of his total goals for the campaign inside the last few weeks. Behrens has the golden touch at present and Bochum will need to watch him closely on Sunday. Bet9ja have 2.95 odds while Paripesa have 2.50 odds.
