22/05/2021 – Daily Football Predictions

It has been an enjoyable season so far but sadly all good things come to an end. The Bundesliga and La Liga will come to an end today and we’re glad we covered it from the start. For the last time, we’ll be giving out the betting tips and predictions for both leagues and we hope to close the season on a high.

Straight Wins

As is frequently the case for a home match against a bottom-half team like Freiburg today, Bayern are considered to be much more likely to win by a margin of 3+ goals than fail to win at all. In fact, seven of the last eight handicap-beating wins ‘to-nil’ in their long unbeaten home league run have seen them take less than 20 minutes to strike first. On top of that, Bayern have scored in every Bundesliga match this campaign, netting an astonishing 59 home goals in 16 matches. Bet9ja and Bet365 have 1.15 odds while 1xbet have 1.20.

Despite winning just once in their last five league games, we’re backing Leipzig to finish the campaign strongly with a win against Union Berlin. The Bundesliga opponents have a good record against their visitors and we expect them to carry on that feat today. Bet9ja and Bet365 have 2.20 odds while Bet365 have 2.30.

Already long guaranteed a UEFA Champions League place, Barcelona need only a point to ensure that they – alongside Madrid’s ‘big two’ – can lock out the podium for a ninth successive season. History is on Barcelona’s side, with the Catalan superpower without a loss to Eibar in their last five games. Bet9ja and Bet365 have 1.65 odds while 1xbet have 1.71.

The task is simple for Atlético Madrid, win here and they secure their first LL crown for seven years! But anything less opens the door for neighbours Real Madrid who hold the H2H advantage in the event of tied points. They should feel confident after five wins in their previous seven LL games and we’re backing them to win the La Liga. Bet9ja have 1.32 odds, Bet365 have 1.33 odds and 1xbet have 1.35.

Over 2.5 Goals

Despite only managing a 3-3 draw (vs Levante) in their last road trip, Barcelona have still averaged exactly 3.00 goals per match across their last ten LL away games won/drawn. The ‘magic number’ is further highlighted by Barcelona scoring exactly three goals in 41.67% of their LL away wins this term – the highest such proportion since the 2010/11 season (50%). Against Eibar, we expect more of the same today. Bet9ja have 1.35 odds while Bet365 and 1xbet have 1.36 odds.

Six straight LL H2Hs between Real Madrid and Villarreal have seen both teams score, with five witnessing the opener netted by the 15th minute, and three by the fifth minute! That plays here once again today, especially with Real Madrid still boasting a chance to win the La Liga. Bet9ja have 1.40, Bet365 have 1.44 and 1xbet have 1.48.

We explained that Bayern are all but sure to beat Augsburg today and they boast a record against bottom sides. It has been a theme to see them score two+ goals in such kind of games and we’re expecting more of that today. Bet9ja have 1.20 odds while 1xbet and Bet365 have 1.30.

Although none of Dortmund’s previous five top-flight seasons saw more home defeats than the four they’ve suffered this campaign (W10, D2, L4), they’re still the division’s second highest home scorers (2.31 goals per match). That’s helped them net in both halves in three consecutive Bundesliga games here, a feat they could achieve again as they’ve done exactly that in the last five home H2Hs too (W5). Bet9ja have 1.24 odds while 1xbet and Bet365 have 1.30.

Anytime Goal-scorers

Suarez

Luis Suarez has played a major part of Atletico’s title charge this term and he scored one of their most crucial goals of the season last time out when he scored the winner as they came from behind. He has scored 20 goals this term and we’re backing the Uruguayan to likely fire them to a La Liga win today. Bet9ja have 1.50 odds while 1xbet have 1.57.

Messi

The spotlight is firmly on Lionel Messi. ‘La Pulga Atomica’ could be making his Barcelona finale, after a fabulous career yielding 474 LL goals to date, of which over a quarter (124) have been match-winners. With 36 league hat-tricks, he enters the weekend accounting for nearly a fifth (18.27%) of the 197 total LL trebles witnessed since the start of 2006/07! Whether it is his last Barcelona game or not, we’re backing him to score today. Bet9ja have 1.45 odds while Bet365 have 1.50.

Lewandowski

With Bayern Munich’s ninth successive league title already assured, this day is about one man: Robert Lewandowski. He needs just one goal here to break Gerd Müller’s 40-goal Bundesliga season record (1972-present), and accounts for 39.13% (36) of Bayern’s 92 goals (3.54 per match) netted across their current unbeaten run of 26 home league games. As usual, we’re backing Lewan-goal-ski to get on the score-sheet. Not surprising that the bookies only have 1.20 odds for him to score.

Andre Silva

André Silva’s brace last time out made him the highest-ever Frankfurt scorer in a Bundesliga campaign (27 goals) – he’s been his side’s first scorer in 16 league outings. Freiburg have the seventh worst defence of all sides in the top 10 and this looks like a good game for Andre Silva to get on the score-sheet. All things going well, he is expected to get on the score-sheet today. Bet365 have 1.44 odds for him to score while Bet9ja have 1.95.

Benzema

Karim Benzema has scored eight match winning goals for Real this season, the third highest in La Liga. The Frenchman fired Real Madrid to a title last term and there is still a chance to do that today. If Atletico fail to win today and Real Madrid does, they retain their La Liga crown. Benzema would know that well enough and we’re backing him to get on the score-sheet no matter what. Bet365 have 1.61 odds while Bet9ja have 1.70.
