Yesterday was a surprising day and one that saw many unexpected results. The big game we were all waiting for in Liverpool vs Manchester United did not live to the script and finished in a goalless draw.
Barcelona blew a lead and lost the Super Cup to Athletic Bilbao. It also got worse as Messi saw his first ever red card in his club career. Inter Milan defeated Juventus as well and the Bianconeri could not even get a single goal.
For our straight win picks, only two out of five tips played out correctly. The same goes with the Over 2.5 market where only two out of five played out correctly too.
For the goal-scorer section, only Lewandowski spared our blushes with a goal with the other names all drawing blanks.
Two key games across Europe are in play tonight and we would be covering the tips for those matches as we usually do.
Arsenal vs Newcastle Prediction
The Gunners are favorites to win this game having enjoyed an impressive run of form of late. Arsenal are unbeaten in their last four games and only saw their winning run come to an end after a 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace last time out. Mikel Arteta’s men will fancy their chances against a Newcastle side low on confidence and without a win in their last five games.
Arsenal have already beaten Newcastle in the FA Cup in 2021 and we can see them doing the double on the Magpies in less than a fortnight. Bet365 have 1.40 odds, Bet9ja have 1.42 and 1xbet have 1.43.
Both teams to score – No
Arsenal have kept a clean sheet in three out of their last four games and have looked solid in defence of late. On the other hand, Newcastle have only scored once in their last four games and we don’t see them troubling the Gunners tonight as well. Bet365 have 1.66 odds, 1xbet have 1.67 and Bet9ja have 1.69.
Anytime Goal-scorer – Aubameyang
After a long time out without goals, the Gabonese forward got back in the goals against the same Newcastle in the FA Cup. Aubameyang has a good record against the Magpies and he’ll be looking to add more goals to his tally and continue the record tonight. Bet365 have 1.80 odds while Bet9ja have 2.25.
Cagliari vs AC Milan
Following Inter’s win over Juventus, AC Milan find themselves level with Antonio Conte’s men at 40 points. The Rossoneri would be aiming for exclusive top status and they can do that with a convincing win tonight. Cagliari have lost their last four games in the Serie A and sadly we that run extending tonight.
With only one loss all season to Juventus, Milan have been favorites in every Serie A game they’ve played and they are more than just that tonight. They take on a side with one of the worst defences in the league and we can see an easy stroll for Pioli’s men. Bet365 have 1.57 odds, Bet9ja have 1.65 and 1xbet have 1.68.
Over 2.5 Goals
Milan have played over 2.5 goals in three out of their last five games and we can see that happening today again. Cagliari seem to be conceding in all of their games and we can see Milan overpowering them today in a game where three points will be the only agenda of the day. Bet9ja have 1.54 odds, Bet365 have 1.61 and 1xbet have 1.66.
Anytime Goal-scorer – Ibrahimovic
The big Swede returned to action against Torino after spending a spell on the sidelines since last November. He looked a bit rusty against Torino which was expected. However, given the opposition today, it could represent a good chance for Ibrahimovic to get in on the goals and extend his tally in a season where he has defied all odds to be prolific in front of goal. Bet365 have 1.57 odds whileBet9ja have it better at 2.00.
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.
