It’s another weekend and another day to try and get the better of bookies. It’s been an interesting run so far and we are now fast approaching game week 10 across all domestic leagues. There was a lot of action in midweek with the Champions League and Europa League and we can expect more of the same today.
Punters have come to enjoy betting on league action and it is upon us once again. With a fully packed weekend lying in wait, we bring you the best tips and betting predictions to go with across all action from Europe’s top five leagues.
Chelsea remains top of the Premier League table heading into matchday nine where the Londoners face a winless Norwich side that occupies last place and have just two points to their name. This is a game that the hosts are expected to win with ease, Chelsea is the sure side to claim all three points here as they recorded three wins in their last four games in the League. Chelsea also has won five of their last six encounters with the Canaries making this selection a pretty sure one today. Bet9ja has 1.19 odds, Paripesa has 1.24 odds and 1xBet has 1.24 odds.
Although currently, this Brighton side is sitting two points away from the top four spots, no one would have predicted that but today facing Manchester City would be a really tough task. Manchester City might have lost here last season but Guardiola’s men have won five of their last six games against the Seagulls and we’re backing an away win this weekend as well. With the ‘Cityzens’ locked in a three-way battle with Chelsea and Liverpool at the top of the table and have taken points from trips to both (W1, D1), another solid performance on the road would both keep the pressure on their rivals and extend their lead over Brighton. Bet9ja has 1.42 odds, Paripesa has 1.43 odds and 1xBet has 1.43 odds.
Bayer Leverkusen had no answer to Bayern Munich’s might and it is now TSG 1899 Hoffenheim’s turn to try their luck against the champions. The visitors are eight points behind the Bavarians after eight rounds of action and will be looking to cut the lead short. Coming from yet another win in the Champions League, Bayern have returned to be the unstoppable side in the Bundesliga, As they return to home surroundings, they are odds on favorites to claim the win. Bet9ja has 1.17 odds, Paripesa has 1.18 odds and 1xBet has 1.18 odds.
Four un-replied goals in the UCL against Ajax midweek would be the worst game played by the German side this season. A string of consecutive losses would be bad for the morale of this team and the coach would surely be looking to change that. Their opponents Bielefeld have been also in woeful form this season and this is a proper time to bounce back to winning ways. Bet9ja has 1.33 odds, Paripesa has 1.38 odds and 1xBet has 1.38 odds
AC Milan remain 2nd in the Serie A table but faces a tricky trip to Bologna this weekend. The hosts beat Lazio in their last home game, while AC Milan had a midweek trip to Portugal to face Porto in the Champions League which they lost by a lone goal. AC Milan has a good record against Bologna especially in recent seasons, and we’re backing Milan to avoid defeat this weekend as they would surely want to keep their title chase hopes alive. Bet9ja has 2.08 odds, Paripesa has 2.13odds and 1xBet has 2.13odds.
Over 2.5 Goals
Jesse Marsch’s men gave a battling account of their abilities as they suffered a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Lionel Messi and co. They will want an improved result against struggling Greuther Furth as they look to resurrect their Bundesliga campaign. Greuther Furth’s backline has conceded 20 goals and we should have a high-scoring affair at the Red Bull Arena. Leipzig would want to win here today and this would mean open attacking football and goals to come in both ends. Bet9ja has 1.34 odds, Paripesa has 1.35 odds and 1xBet has 1.35 odds.
Despite claiming ninth place on the points table, Hoffenheim is fourth in terms of goals scored. No points for guessing that Bayern is leading the goal-scoring race. With both teams averaging more than two goals per match, we are backing them to continue this trend in this fixture. Goals have flown in matches involving Bayern Munich. Only one of their Bundesliga fixtures this season has concluded with an Under 2.5 total goals tally. Hoffenheim is not far behind with six of their eight matches seeing at least three goals.

Four of Bologna’s last five league games have also witnessed at least three goals scored and over 2.5 goals have been produced in four of AC Milan’s last five matches in all competitions. An added stat is provided that both teams would likely find the back of the net today as both teams have scored in four of the last five encounters between Bologna and AC Milan in Serie A. Four of Bologna’s last five outings have seen both teams score, while goals have been scored at both ends of the pitch in four of AC Milan’s last five fixtures. Bet9ja has 1.63 odds, Peripesa has 1.72 odds and 1xBet has 1.72 odds.
Bottom club Zwolle continues their search for a first win of the new campaign when Heracles visits on Saturday. Zwolle is yet to win in this campaign with eight losses and one draw from nine matches so far. Heracles have three victories so far this season but they are still poor on the road with one draw and two losses. The last three fixtures between both teams have seen an over 2.5 goals return.

This is a fixture between Manchester City and Brighton that tends towards a very interesting and open match-up. Although both teams have been solid at the back and broken defenses countlessly this season, they would revel at the task of facing each other. The high stakes for both sides in this fixture as both teams stand to show dominance in table standings by who wins makes it a more interesting fixture. Bet9ja has 1.88 odds, Paripesa has 1.92 odds and 1xBet has 1.92 odds.
After he and his team left it late in their four-nil thrashing of Benfica in the UCL, we can say that he cannot be stopped from scoring. There shouldn’t be any need to pull out stats for this striker as he has only failed to score once in his last six fixtures for his team. Sixteen goals this season is really impressive coming from just 12 fixtures. Hoffenheim has seen him score goals against them and is sure to happen again today. Bet9ja has 1.30 odds while Paripesa has 1.25 odds.
Returning from the international break fully he was an unused sub in City’s thrashing of Club Brugge during the week. With five-goal involvements in his first seven fixtures in the league, he was the main man for Pep, returning now into the squad he is likely to replicate that form and get on the scoreboard today with his sights set on leading City to yet another PL title. Bet9ja has 2.75 odds while Paripesa has 2.75 odds.
The Frenchman produced an absolute masterclass in his last league outing for the Italian giants helping them come back from 2 goals down to seal the win he surely deserves a spot here. He has recorded 3 goals in four appearances and he has only started two of those league games meaning with more minutes he is sure to provide his team. He will put up to lead the attack today and his experience in front of the goal would surely count to help Milan get a positive result. Bet9ja has 2.45 odds while Paripesa has 2.00 odds.
