Yesterday was a decent day at the office with respect to our tips. Pirlo won the first trophy in his coaching career as Juventus beat Napoli 2-0 to lift the Supercoppa Italia. One more goal and our over 2.5 tip for the game would have come through.
For the straight win market, all but one failed to come through. Real Madrid were stunned by Alcoyano who knocked them out of the Copa del Rey.
The over 2.5 goals section was one to forget as only one out of four tips played out correctly.
Moving to the goal-scorer section, it was a 50% win rate as Robert Lewandowski and Cristiano Ronaldo both found the back of the net while Raheem Sterling drew a blank for City. Rashford only came on in the 85th minute and it’s no surprise he didn’t score.
Today is another day and there are some few games on the cards we won’t miss for anything.
Liverpool take on Burnley in what is a crucial match for both sides. The Reds are in their worst form of the season and are without a win in their last four league games. It’s no surprise they have dropped down the pile in the table as well. With two wins from their last five games, Burnley have more wins than Liverpool but we’re expecting Klopp’s men to win this one regardless. Also given the venue is at Anfield, it could be the perfect opportunity for the Reds to return to winning ways. Bet365 have 1.20 odds,1xbet have 1.21 and Bet9ja have 1.22.
Off to La Liga, leaders Atletico Madrid take on 15th place Eibar in what is expected to be a one-sided affair. Without too much explanation, Atletico are top of the league even with two games in hand. They have also won their last five games consecutively and we expect them to make it six tonight. Bet365 have 1.72 odds, Bet9ja have 1.76 and 1xbet have 1.79.
Still in Spain, Barcelona take on Segunda division B side Cornella in the Copa del Rey. Real Madrid were stunned yesterday by Alcoyano. However, we see the Catalan giants strolling past their opponents. They’ll be fired up for a win after their disappointing loss to Athletic Bilbao last time out. Bet365 have 1.22 odds, 1xbet have 1.23 and Bet9ja have 1.27.
Over 2.5 Goals
We already tipped Barcelona to beat Cornella and we can see it being a convincing win as well. Barca have had no problems scoring goals of late and we don’t see why there shouldn’t be at least three goals tonight. Bet9ja have 1.58 odds, Bet365 have 1.60 and 1xbet have 1.62.
Off to Italy, Lazio and Parma lock horns in the Coppa Italia. We expect a very open game at the Stadio Olimpico and one that should result to goals. It is a fixture where both teams can easily get on the score-sheet and that should translate to at least three goals tonight.Bet9ja have 1.53 odds, Bet365 have 1.57 and 1xbet have 1.58.
In similar fashion, we already tipped Atletico to beat Eibar and we can see the game resulting in at least three goals. In fairness, Atletico don’t exactly score more than two goals often but we have a hunch it could be a goal-affair tonight and we’re backing it to happen. Bet9ja and 1xbet have 2.57 odds while Bet365 have 2.62.
The Uruguayan forward has impressed for Atletico since his summer move from Barcelona. With nine goals to his name, he is Atletico’s top scorer and only two from Lionel Messi who is first on the scoring charts. He is a good shout to find the back of the net against Eibar tonight. Bet365 have 2.10 odds while Bet9ja have 2.25.
The Frenchman is in decent form at the moment with three goals in his last three games for Barcelona. Lionel Messi has a two-match ban after a needless act and red card and with that in mind; Griezmann will be the go-to man for goals. Bet365 have 1.80 odds while Bet9ja have 2.00.
Salah remains the league’s top scorer but he has not scored in his last four games. In fact, Liverpool as a team are without a league goal in 2021. Tonight represents a good chance to end the drought and Salah also boasts a good scoring record against Burnley. Bet365 have 1.44 odds while Bet9ja have 1.60.
