Last time out on Sunday was a good day for us at the office. Our tips from the United vs Liverpool game came through. Fernandes and Salah even both scored just as we predicted.
For the straight win section, there was 100% success with all five tips coming through. The over 2.5 goal section saw all but one come to play. Juventus needed one more goal as they claimed a 2-0 win over Bologna.
The goal-scorer section saw only Lewandowski get on the score-sheet as usual. Werner missed a penalty and continued his poor form of just one goal in 16 games.
A lot has happened since then with the biggest news of all being the sacking of Frank Lampard by Chelsea. After just 18 months at the club, the Blues decided to part ways with their club legend. What were the odds of that happening in January?
Anyways, we’ll proceed to today’s business and continue our usual flow of giving you the best tips from the top games across Europe.
Featured Match: Inter Milan vs AC Milan (Coppa Italia)
Separated by just two points and one place in the Serie A standings, on Tuesday night Inter Milan meet old rivals AC Milan in the second Derby della Madonnina of the season.
Crowned ‘Winter Champions’ despite a desperate 3-0 defeat to Atalanta at the weekend, league leaders Milan continue their quest for a sixth Coppa Italia trophy against their San Siro-sharing foes – as the pair come head-to-head in the quarter-finals.
With thoughts of the Scudetto momentarily on pause, both Milan giants turn their thoughts towards chasing Coppa glory, after a prolonged barren spell for the second city.
The Nerazzurri have not lifted the trophy for a decade and are now set on a first domestic double since the Jose Mourinho era, while the Rossoneri’s drought goes back further – to 2003, when Rivaldo, Andriy Shevchenko and current Benevento coach Pippo Inzaghi were among the scorers in their final success against Roma.
The winner of this quarter-final fixture will take on the winner between Juventus and SPAL in the semi-finals and that means the winner of this game could yet have a chance at reaching the final of the competition. With that in mind, we expect a very tough game at the San Siro tonight. As usual, we’ll be giving you the best tips for this game.
Over 2.5 Goals
This particular fixture has always brought goals and we can see that happening again today. The most recent encounter back in October saw over 2.5 goals with AC Milan claiming a 2-1 win over their rivals courtesy a brace from Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Lukaku got the goal for Inter but it only proved to be a consolation. At the moment, AC Milan come into the game as wounded lions following their 3-0 loss to Atalanta and we can see them aiming to score from the onset. On the other hand, Inter are out of the Champions League and competitions like this could be their chance for a trophy. Bet9ja have 1.67 odds, Bet365 have 1.70 and 1xbet have 1.75.
Both teams to score
Based on the same above reason, we can see both teams getting on the score-sheet especially with plenty attacking talent at both ends. We don’t see this fixture going into extra time as we expect a winner to emerge after 90 minutes. Both teams will try to drop the early marker with a goal and that could lead to both teams scoring. Bet9ja have 1.56 odds, Bet365 have 1.57 and 1xbet have 1.64.
Last time against AC Milan, Lukaku did get on the score-sheet but it was not enough to get his side the win or even a point. Ibrahimovic ruled the day with a brace and dunned himself ‘the new king in town’ following that fixture. Lukaku has proven to be a big game player for Inter and he’ll have a point to prove especially against Zlatan Ibrahimovic going into this fixture. Bet365 have 1.95 odds while Bet9ja have it slightly better at 2.30.
The Big swede already bagged a brace in this same fixture back in October and you can fancy him scoring again tonight. Given his experience in this kind of games over the years, he is the number one man on the pitch to get on the score-sheet provided he starts. Bet365 are offering 2.10 odds while Bet9ja have theirs at 2.60 for him to score.
Manchester City are unbeaten in ten league games (W8, D2), and a win here would return them to the PL summit. Seven wins therein came ‘to nil’ and they’ve been outstanding early on, netting 20 (64.52%) out of 31 PL strikes this term before half time. We see them claiming an easy win against a West Brom side with only two wins all season. Bet365 have 1.16 odds, Bet9ja have 1.19 and 1xbet have 1.23.
Southampton take on Arsenal again just a few days after eliminating the holders from the FA Cup. The Gunners rotated in that game with Eddie Nketiah and it didn’t work out. However, they are unbeaten in their last five games in the league and a return to their first team players could see them grab a win and their ‘revenge’ against the Saints who have only one win in their last five league games. Bet365have 2.10 odds, Bet9ja have 2.20 and 1xbet have 2.27.
Villarreal will be bidding to reach the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey for the second year in succession when they face Segunda Division side Girona on Tuesday night. Under Unai Emery, Villarreal have impressed this season and we can see them claiming an easy win against their opponents tonight. Bet365 have 1.75 odds, 1xbet have 1.83 and Bet9ja have 1.84.
PSV to beat Emmem Off to the Eredivise, PSV take on bottom-place Emmen and we expect an easy win for the third-placed side. Emmem are the only side yet to win in the Eredivise this season and have lost four out of their last five league games. PSV have the chance to move up to second with a win tonight and we can see them taking all three points. Bet365 have 1.40 odds, 1xbet have 1.43 and Bet9ja have 1.44.
Over 2.5 Goals
With 43 goals conceded, West Brom has the worst defence by far in the Premier League this season. They have conceded at least two goals in their last four games, including a 4-0 loss to Arsenal and a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Leeds. We expect Manchester City to add more to their woes with a convincing victory tonight. Bet9ja have 1.53 odds, 1xbet have 1.54 and Bet365 have 1.57.
Over to the Eredivise, three out of Groningen’s last five games have seen over 2.5 goals and that tip is expected to carry on tonight. They take on a Den Haag side who are in the relegation zone and it should be a game with a good number of goals at the Euroborg stadium. Bet9ja have 1.75 odds, Bet365 have 1.80 and 1xbet have 1.81.
Only Ajax and AZ Alkmaar have scored more goals than PSV in the Eredivise this season. We already tipped them to win Emmem and we can see the game bringing a good number of goals as well. Four out of PSV’s last five games have seen over 2.5 goals and we’re expecting it to come through today as well. Bet9ja have 1.48 odds, Bet365 have 1.50 and 1xbet have 1.51.
The Brazilian forward recently ended a goal drought against Cheltenham in the FA Cup and we’re backing him to score again tonight. It’s been a tough season for Jesus with injury struggles alongside covid-19. However, he will fancy his chances of scoring against a West Brom side that have struggled in the Premier League all season. Bet9ja have 1.70 odds while Bet365 have 1.80.
Lacazette is Arsenal’s top scorer in the Premier League with seven goals all season. He is on a good run of form with four goals in his last five league games and we’re tipping him to find the back of the net tonight. There could be value for this tip with Bet9ja offering 2.25 odds and Bet365 having theirs at 2.30.
West Ham are on a decent run of form and are unbeaten in their last five games. They have recorded three successive wins and Antonio has played a big part in that scoring in his last two games. We’re tipping him to score against a Crystal Palace side that has faltered of late. Bet9ja have 2.60 odds for him to score while Bet365 have 2.75.
Leeds have lost their last two games without scoring a goal but that could end tonight. They are expected to get something against Newcastle and we’re tipping Bamford to end his three game goal-drought and score his 11th Premier League goal of the season. Bet9ja and Bet365 have 2.00 odds for him to score.
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.
