Another weekend packed with lots of games to choose from. Most of the big teams included here had a great time out in their midweek fixtures and we foresee a similar outcome here today.
We have carefully selected some games in this article to provide optimal options with the bookies and good outcomes from the teams.
Aston Villa have lost four of their opening five Premier League games, and this weekend they play host to the reigning champions, Manchester City. Guardiola’s men head into this weekend’s game on the back of a huge 6-0 win over Nottingham Forest and a hat trick for star striker Erling Haaland. Man City have picked up 13pts from their opening five matches and sit second in the Premier League table, while their hosts, Aston Villa, have just 3pts to their name and occupy one of the relegation places. City have won each of their last nine matches against the Midlands club. City are still unbeaten in the league this season and, without a doubt, will walk home with three points here today. Bet9ja have 1.38 odds, Paripesa have 1.38 odds, and 1xBet have 1.38 odds.
Ajax arrive here as massive favorites to win the game. Ajax have kicked off their season in perfect form with four wins on the spin and currently have a +9 goal difference from those matches. Cambuur, meanwhile, sit on a goal difference of zero but, notably, have just one win to their name. Ajax beat Cambuur 9-1 in that match. We don’t think it will be that bad this time, but there will be a few goals in it. Bet9ja have 1.10 odds, Paripesa have 1.09 odds and 1xBet have 1.09 odds.
Sevilla and Barcelona meet at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán in La Liga today . When they visit struggling Sevilla, Barca are chasing their third league win on the spin. Sevilla haven’t started the new La Liga season at all well, and their sluggish performances so far mean that they are still searching for their first win. Livewire winger Lucas Ocampos was sold to Ajax during the week, Los Nervionenses look even less dynamic in the final third and they look ill-equipped to match a Barcelona side that are hitting their stride. Barca won each of their last two league assignments and hit eight goals along the way, so they should have too much firepower for their hosts this weekend. Bet9ja have 1.78 odds, Paripesa have 1.87 odds, and 1xBet have 1.87 odds.
Real Madrid take Real Betis at the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu in La Liga on Saturday. The champions play their first home league match of the new campaign this weekend. Two perfect starts are on the line when Real Madrid and Real Betis go head-to-head for three points in the capital on Saturday. After a three-game roadshow to start their title defense, Real Madrid are back at the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu for the first time this season on Saturday when they entertain the only other team in La Liga with a perfect start, Real Betis. The visitors’ early winning streak was aided by a kind run of fixtures, however, and they could face an eye-opening dose of reality when they play the champions. This would definitely not be an easy win for Carlo Ancelotti’s side, but we expect Real Madrid to impress the home crowd with three points. Bet9ja have 1.42 odds, Paripesa have 1.47 odds, and 1xBet have 1.47 odds.
Bayer Leverkusen should be full of confidence following their first win of the season when Freiburg visit the BayArena on Saturday. The relief was palpable last week when Bayer Leverkusen finally secured their first win of the new campaign with a fine 3-0 victory at Mainz, and with some of the pressure alleviated, Die Werkself should be a more confident force for the visit of Freiburg on Saturday. The Breisgau-Brasilianer are in good early form, though their fixture list has largely been kind and their solitary loss against a high-caliber opponent, Dortmund, provided plenty of telling evidence about their level. Bayer are close to finding their stride and a second win on the spin could be in the offing here. Bet9ja have 1.90 odds, Paripesa have 1.95 odds, and 1xBet have 1.95 odds.
PSG arrived at this match as favorites to take maximum points. Nantes have had their fair share of struggles lately; they have one win, three draws and three losses in their last seven matches. In contrast, PSG have been on fire in recent months; they have had no losses in their last 19 matches in all competitions, with 15 wins and four draws. We would also like to point out that PSG have dominated Nantes over the years; as they have won 22 of the last 25 clashes between these two. Additionally, PSG drew first blood in 14 of their last 25 meetings with Nantes; they had the lead at the midway point in three of their last four encounters too. With that in mind, PSG should open the scoring and take the lead before half-time. Bet9ja have 1.37 odds, Paripesa have 1.38 odds and 1xBet have 1.38 odds.
We’re expecting an entertaining 90-minutes in Serie A this weekend when Lazio play host to Napoli. The visitors have a good record against their guests, but both teams have picked up 8 points from their opening four league games, and it is hard to predict just which way this game will go. Four of the last five league meetings between Lazio and Napoli have produced over 2.5 goals, and three of those encounters have actually produced four or more goals. At least two of Lazio’s opening four matches in Serie A this season have seen at least three goals scored, including their last home game against Inter Milan. Three of Napoli’s last six outings have produced over 3.5 goals, so you can see just why we’re backing goals on Saturday. Bet9ja have 1.68 odds, Peripesa have 1.77 odds, and 1xBet have 1.77 odds.
Tottenham are yet to taste defeat in the Premier League and all the odds point towards that run continuing this weekend when they play host to newly-promoted Fulham. The Cottagers have made a really impressive start to life back in the top flight, but will have to be at their very best to take anything from this game. Tottenham have won five of their last six head-to-heads with Fulham and over 2.5 goals have been scored in four of the pair’s last six meetings in league and cup. Tottenham have had two games this season, both of which produced over 3.5 goals. Fulham are yet to win on the road this season in all competitions and four of their last six. matches. They have produced over 2.6 goals. Bet9ja have 1.63 odds, Paripesa have 1.74 odds, and 1xBet have 1.74 odds.
Newcastle’s new star signing, Isak, opened his account against Liverpool in midweek, and the hosts will be hoping he can recover from a dead leg in time to make his home debut. Crystal Palace provide the opposition in the Premier League this weekend, and the visitors have made a decent start and will test the Newcastle defense. We’re expecting goals in this game even though most of the recent encounters between these two sides have been low-scoring. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in three of Newcastle’s last four outings, while two of the Eagles’ last three league games have witnessed at least four goals scored, including their last away game against Man City, which ended in a 4-2 defeat. Bet9ja have 2.03 odds, Paripesa have 2.10 odds, and 1xBet have 2.10 odds.
Newly-promoted Werder Bremen have been thrilling both their own supporters and neutrals with their break-neck style of attacking football, and all of their matches so far have been packed with action. Indeed, over 2.5 goals have landed in 100% of their first four assignments, with the matches averaging a net-shredding 5.0 goals per 90 minutes overall. Werder Bremen’s electric approach should lead to more thrills and spills against Bochum, and we expect over 2.5 goals to be a winning bet again. Bet9ja have 1.64 odds, Paripesa have 1.75 odds, and 1xBet have 1.75 odds.
Iconic Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema proved his worth again last weekend when he hit two late goals to earn Real Madrid their third league win on the spin in a tricky test at Espanyol. The veteran has now scored four times in as many competitive appearances this season, and he looks as razor sharp as ever despite his advancing age. The 34-year-old will be The focal point of Real Madrid’s attack again on Saturday, and we recommend backing him to get among the goals against Betis. Bet9ja have 1.85 odds, while Paripesa have 1.50 odds.
Man City’s star striker, Erling Haaland, has started his Premier League career in fantastic style, and we’re backing the Norwegian forward to score again this weekend against Aston Villa. Haaland could go on to break the record for the number of goals scored in a Premier League season, having already netted 9-times in his opening five fixtures. Villa look poor at the back, and we’re confident that Haaland and his Man City teammates will have a field day at Villa Park. Bet9ja have 1.69 odds, while Paripesa have 1.57 odds.
Raheem Sterling has started his Chelsea career well, netting 3-goals in the opening five games of the new season, and we’re backing the England international to score against West Ham on Saturday. Sterling scores goals wherever he goes, netting double figures in each of his last five Premier League campaigns, so you can see why we’re backing the winger to score against the Hammers this weekend. Bet9ja have 2.60 odds, while Paripesa have 2.10 odds.
Bayern opponent Leroy Sané is aiming to score in consecutive Bundesliga matches for the first time since joining the club this summer. He has scored three goals this season in four games for the club, with an impressive return already. Now he faces a side who have had less luck defending against the German giants. Bet9ja have 2.30 odds, while Paripesa have 2.09 odds.
Robert Lewandowski has already looked the part in a Barcelona shirt and the prolific Pole doubled his tally for the campaign with two well-taken efforts against Real Valladolid last week. The 34-year-old should be well-serviced again on Saturday by his talented, creative supporting cast, and Lewandowski is priced generously as just below even to add to his early haul with a strike against Sevilla. Bet9ja have 2.10 odds, while Paripesa have 1.85 odds.
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.
