It’s another Saturday and that means loads of domestic and league action all over. With the season drawing to a close, get ready to see games come in thick and fast, alongside unexpected results to go with.
However, it may be, we’ll be doing what we know how to do best as we bring you the most likely tips to come through from today’s action.
Despite losing two points in the dying minutes of their Monday draw at Leeds, Liverpool remain firmly in the top-four picture. Now, they will aim to build on a first Premier League (PL) home win of 2021 when they take on Newcastle. The Magpies have been abysmal of late, including losing four out of their last seven away fixtures. We expect Liverpool to take the win today. Bet9ja and Bet365 have 1.22 odds while 1xbet have 1.28.
PSG take on Metz today as they look to keep a close hold on leaders Lille who they trail by a point. Les Parisiens have won their previous five L1 away fixtures, and interestingly netted within the opening 20 minutes on each occasion.Bet365 have 1.25 odds, Bet9ja have 1.26 and 1xbet have 1.27.
After picking up ten of their 12 home points across the previous five Bundesliga matches at the Opel Arena, this Mainz side may believe they have what it takes to delay Bayern’s title charge. However, we don’t see that happening. The Bavarians need just one win to claim another historic Bundesliga triumph and that should motivate them for the win. Lewandowski is back and that should further make things easier as well. Bet365 have 1.30 odds, Bet9ja have 1.34 and 1xbet have 1.36.
Real Madrid take on Alaves today and we expect another win for Zinedine Zidane and company. Real Madrid are hitting form at exactly the right time in this punishing La Liga title race, accumulating five La Liga victories in a six-game period. Notably, Real’s last four victories have all been preceded by HT leads, and ‘Los Blancos’ now return home, where they have taken maximum points in five of their last six LL outings. We see them winning easy today. Bet365 have 1.50 odds while Bet9ja and 1xbet have 1.53.
Over 2.5 Goals
Chelsea travel to take on West Ham and this is a London battle that boasts a good potential for goals. Both teams are in the top four battle, which makes things more interesting as well. The Hammers’ last four consecutive games has seen over 4.5 goals and that says a lot. Chelsea have not lost their last six away games under Tuchel, leaving the over 2.5 pick as a reasonable choice. Bet9ja have 1.97 odds, Bet365 have 2.00 and 1xbet have 2.06.
Four out of PSG’s last five Ligue 1 games has seen over 2.5 games. To go with, they boast a good record against Metz, their latest opponents. Les Parisiens face a side here that they boast a 100% record against across the previous ten competitive H2Hs. Additionally, across that winning sequence, their goal average stands at an impressive 3.00 per game! We expect the over 2.5 tip to play out for this one. Bet9ja have 1.50 odds, Bet365 have 1.53 and 1xbet have 1.55.
Champions League-chasing Borussia Dortmund are in good form after three straight Bundesliga wins in which they netted 2+ goals. Wolfsburg will also be eager to keep up the pace as they remain in third place. Wolfsburg lost two of their last three league games, where they conceded at least three games. Taking Dortmund’s poor defensive record into account as well and we could have a very open game on the cards in terms of goals. Bet9ja have 1.45 odds while 1xbet and Bet365 have 1.50 odds.
PSV take on Groningen today and it looks like a match with goals in it as well. Roger Schmidt’s PSV boast the joint-best home league record this season (W11, D2, L1) whilst only PSV themselves, along with Ajax, are yet to fire a blank in any home league game. Moreover, PSV have scored 2+ goals in all but one victory here so far and we can see that happening once again today. Bet9ja have 1.48 odds, Bet365 have 1.50 and 1xbet have 1.53.
Bayer Leverkusen take on Frankfurt in another race for European spots and there is a strong chance of a goal-filled game. With 11 of Leverkusen’s 15 Bundesliga home games also witnessing over 2.5 goals, and five of the previous six seeing both teams score (W3, D1, L2), another goal-filled game looks likely. Bet9ja have 1.40 odds, Bet365 have 1.44 and 1xbet have 1.46.
Haaland remains the key man for Borussia Dortmund and has bagged a respectable 23 goals this season. The Norwegian has scored two goals in his last two league games and we’re backing him to keep up that run today with yet another goal. Bet365 have 1.44 odds while Bet9ja have 1.75.
Wolfsburg’s Wout Weghorst has scored a remarkable six goals across his last seven Bundesliga fixtures, with four arriving in the 15 minutes either side of HT. A tally of 20 goals has seen him keep Wolfsburg in contention for Champions League spots and that could serve as motivation for him to score against a direct rival. Bet365 have 1.90 odds while Bet9ja have theirs at 2.75.
Kylian Mbappe netted the game’s opener within 16 minutes in three of PSG’s last five L1 road trips. He is the most in form man in Ligue 1 and has scored in his last three outings. With 23 goals scored so far, he is the top scorer in Ligue 1 and looks set to win the award for the second time in a row. Bet365 have 1.53 odds while Bet9ja have 1.75.
Lewandowski is back in action and that means goals are back as well. After missing a number of games due to injury, the goal machine is now available for contention although he might not start from the onset. Either from the bench or from the start, we don’t need to explain why we’re backing him to score. Bet365 have 1.33 odds while Bet9ja have 1.45.
Karim Benzema has been Real Madrid’s first scorer in an impressive four of their last six La Liga home fixtures. The Frenchman has literally carried his side all through the past few weeks and it’s a no-brainier he’ll do so once again today. Bet365 have 1.66 odds while Bet9ja have 1.70.
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.
