It’s been a busy week in the world of football, with lots of big news in the course of the week. After major doubt over his future at the club, Ronald Koeman got sacked after yet another defeat at the hands of Rayo Vallecano. Elsewhere, it was more shocking to see a star-studded Bayern Munich side thumped 5-0 by Borussia Monchengladbach.
The above shows how unpredictable the season has been but one thing that has remained constant is our supply of betting tips. Ahead of another busy weekend, we have the most well-researched betting tips and predictions for punters to go with ahead of all the incoming action.
The Premier League leaders make the trip up north to take on a winless Newcastle side on Saturday. We can recall that Chelsea crushed Norwich at Stamford Bridge last time out, netting 7-goals without reply. On the other hand, Newcastle have a lot of woes this season as they have only had four points on the board and are still to secure their first league win of the campaign. With how emphatically the blues crushed Norwich, we are backing them to do the same here with a squad incapable of stopping them. Bet9ja has 1.38 odds, Paripesa has 1.40 odds and 1xBet has 1.40 odds.
Liverpool are in a rather impressive form, seeing off all opponents in very dazzling fashion and could move to the top of the Premier League table with a win at home to high-flying Brighton this weekend. On the other hand, Brighton have surprised many with their excellent start to the campaign. We’re backing Liverpool to win as the Reds have won four of their last six matches in all competitions. Liverpool would be eying top spot and would surely want to win here. Bet9ja has 1.25 odds, Paripesa has 1.26 odds and 1xBet has 1.26 odds.
Manchester City sit 3rd in the Premier League table as things stand but could go top if they beat Crystal Palace at the Etihad and results elsewhere go in their favor. Manchester City is the favorite this weekend for good reason, having won four of their last five matches against Crystal Palace. The hosts have won four of their last six fixtures with a lot of very impressive performances in between them and this should be a real walk in the park for the team. Bet9ja has 1.15 odds, Paripesa has 1.19 odds and 1xBet has 1.19 odds.
Real Madrid were held to a draw in their own home during the midweek game against Osasuna. This weekend, they take on Elche and this would be something to boost their confidence as their opponents are 15th placed with no win in their last five league fixtures. Real could not have had better opponents to ensure they return to winning ways today. This is why we are backing them in this selection to take home the three points. Bet9ja has 1.44 odds, Paripesa has 1.46 odds and 1xBet has 1.46 odds.
Ajax are currently sitting pretty at the top of the table with just one loss all season and four points ahead of the pack as they prepare to travel to Heracles today. Heracles are currently 14th and have had consecutive losses before entering this game. Ajax seems to have returned to winning form after their loss three games ago and would surely want to extend their lead at the top of the table with a win here today. Bet9ja has 1.17 odds, Paripesa has 1.20 odds and 1xBet has 1.20 odds.
Over 2.5 Goals
Leicester and Arsenal each have 14 points on the board after 9-games and both would have been. Both of these teams have been involved in their fair share of high-scoring games of late and we’re expecting at least three goals to be scored when the two sides lock horns this weekend. Five of Leicester’s and four of Arsenal’s last fixtures across all competitions have witnessed over 2.5 goals being scored, so you can see just why we’re predicting that at least three goals will go in on Saturday. Bet9ja has 1.76 odds, Paripesa has 1.86 odds and 1xBet has 1.86 odds.
This is easily the game of the weekend and one to keep an eye out for. Manchester United will be looking for a response from their players following their 5-0 drubbing by Liverpool last time out. Tottenham have the home advantage and sit 1pt and one position ahead of the Red Devils in the Premier League table. Their previous games have provided us with goals and lots of it, we are sure that at least three goals will be scored in this fixture as that has been the case in four of the pair’s last five encounters in all competitions. Four of Tottenham’s last six outings have witnessed at least three goals scored, while over 2.5 goals have been produced in four of Man United’s last five fixtures. Bet9ja has 1.72 odds, Paripesa has 1.78 odds and 1xBet has 1.78 odds.
Liverpool have returned here as a result of their good goal-scoring form in recent weeks. We’re expecting goals in this game despite these two sides playing a lot of tight and tense matches against one another in recent seasons. Liverpool are goal machines at the moment and each of their last six matches in the league and cup has produced over 3.5 goals. Brighton’s last game against Man City also produced over 3.5 goals as the Seagulls suffered a 4-1 defeat in their own backyard. Also, an added tip is that we see both teams scoring in this game, with both teams having scored in four of their last six fixtures. Bet9ja has 1.46 odds, Paripesa has 1.51 odds and 1xBet has 1.51 odds.
Humbled Bayern would be returning to the Bundesliga after a humbling 5 nil defeat to fellow league members Borussia Monchengladbach in the DFB Pokal midweek. They now return to face Union Berlin who have put up a quite impressive challenge for the top spots in the early period of this season. A thumping and dominant win would be on the minds of the Bayern players after their humiliating loss, making this choice a really confident pick here today. Bet9ja has 1.36 odds, Paripesa has 1.37 odds and 1xBet has 1.37 odds.
Still in the Bundesliga, we have the faceoff between Frankfurt and Leipzig which will prove to be an intense one between these two teams. Frankfurt currently lie 15th on the table, conceding 14 goals while Leipzig have found the net on 20 occasions. This is a solid matchup for this selection as both sides have goal scoring threats and also have been frail defensively. Bet9ja has 1.48 odds, Paripesa has 1.50 odds and 1xBet has 1.50 odds.
The obvious pick in today’s selection is the Egyptian as he hasn’t failed to live up to his selections in recent weeks. He recently bagged a hat-trick at Old Trafford last weekend in their thumping of the Red Devils. Now on 10 league goals this season, he is the right man for the job when it comes to scoring goals. Today, against Brighton, he is sure to be unstoppable like in the previous games. Bet9ja has 1.65 odds while Paripesa has 1.53 odds.
Failing to register a goal or any positive impact in the match as his side Bayern Munich crashed out on Wednesday, he would surely be looking to put that behind him. He is the man not to dwell on bad experiences and come back with a bang. Now the focus is the League and also a golden shoe this season. Lewandoski is the highest goal scorer in the Bundesliga and has not failed to register a goal contribution all impressive season. Today, he would surely want to score and keep the fans happy. Bet9ja has 1.45 odds while Paripesa has 1.45 odds.
Frenchman Benzema would undoubtedly be angry at his performance during the week that saw his Madrid side draw against Osasuna. He missed a lot of opportunities as he couldn’t convert them and help his side claim the winner. Elche, his opponents today, have already shown their lack of defensive prowess and awareness leading us to believe he will score here today. Bet9ja has 1.80 odds while Paripesa has 1.70 odds.
Haller is having a very good season in front of goal for Ajax, netting 7-times in the Eredivisie alone and six times in the Champions League already this season. Currently on a four-game consecutive run of scoring, we are backing him to add to that tally. Heracles are the opponent to try and end the scoring run today but we sadly don’t see them doing that. Bet9ja has 1.75 odds while Paripesa has 1.63 odds.
Son has been the only front man trying to pull the club back lots of important goals already this season. With four goals for him in the Premier League, it’s not a bad statistic as they play a rather battered Manchester United side. He has a good history of scoring a goal against United as he has done in the past seasons. United have a rather porous defense and he is sure to exploit that to get the goals for his team. Bet9ja has 3.25 odds while Paripesa has 3.10.
