There was a lot of action throughout the course of the weekend games in Europe, and many teams here still have a lot to accomplish, especially today.
There are many events to keep an eye on, and we have chosen the greatest ones with the best forecasts for each match.
Away day specialists When Monaco travels to Clermont on Sunday, they are looking to pick up more points. In fact, Monaco has gained more points away from the Principality this year than they have at home, and Philippe Clement’s team appears in a strong position to pursue success once more on Sunday. Monaco has frequently appeared more at ease traveling than playing at home. Since August, Monaco has won six out of 10 Ligue 1 away games, while Clermont has lost four of their past five home matches. Considering such stats, our first forecast suggests supporting Monaco in this situation. Bet9ja have 1.87 odds, Paripesa have 1.91 odds and 1xBet have 1.91 odds.
Real Madrid has dropped two points in the last four La Liga games, falling to Villarreal and drawing with Real Sociedad. The result of this is that the reigning champions are currently trailing Barcelona in the title race by five points, and each additional setback could make it even harder for them to retain their title. Real Madrid doesn’t have much room for error if they want to successfully defend their La Liga championship this season, especially while playing opponents like Mallorca, as Barcelona now leads by five points. Real Madrid is the superior team right now, and while Mallorca is a good squad that is currently in the middle of the standings, they aren’t in the best of forms right now. Bet9ja have 1.80 odds, Paripesa have 1.81 odds and 1xBet have 1.81 odds.
Napoli overcame Roma 2-1 last weekend, passing another test of their title prospects. The Partenopei should be able to win for the 18th time in 21 Serie A games when they travel to face Spezia on Sunday. In their last two meetings, Napoli has defeated Spezia, and this weekend, they should win again thanks to another shutout. In their last four league games, Spezia has only managed one goal, therefore our first prediction is that Napoli will fully capitalize on their opponents’ lack of dynamism in the final third. Bet9ja have 1.37 odds, Paripesa have 1.37 odds and 1xBet have 1.37 odds.
PSV underwent numerous changes during the January transfer window, which were evident in their performances. In addition to losing Noni Madueke when PSV traded her to Chelsea, they also lack Cody Gakpo. Losing those two players was first evident in their lack of success; since the season’s start, they have only won twice, and most recently, they lost to lowly Emmen. On the other side, Feyenoord already faced up against Ajax, Twente, and Utrecht, three of the top seven teams, and won all three games. Another opportunity to put some distance between themselves and one of their primary title rivals will come when they play PSV. When they last competed, in the early part of the season, PSV won 4-3, and to this day this is the only defeat for Feyenoord. Bet9ja have 2.16 odds, Paripesa have 2.20 odds and 1xBet have 2.20 odds.
With three straight defeats, the Go-Ahead Eagles are in trouble. This weekend, they play a crucial encounter against NEC Nijmegen in an effort to put some distance between themselves and the clubs that are fighting for relegation. When we talk about that particular stat, goals are going to be essential and these teams have a certain rivalry. Seven of their last 10 games saw more than two goals scored, and the first game this season that finished in a 3-3 draw demonstrated that they are still cognizant of their past. The Go-Ahead Eagles had nine “over” games and ten “under” games, although three of their previous five have had excessive goal-scoring. Bet9ja have 1.94 odds, Paripesa have 1.95 odds and 1xBet have 1.95 odds.
Ajax finally won a game after firing their coach Alfred Schreuder, but it will be a while before they are back to their best and challenging for another championship. In terms of games with more than 2.5 goals, Ajax and RKC Waalwijk both rank first in the league with 10 games played each. It’s interesting to note that half of the contests involved an invited team, Ajax. Only three of those games were played at home for Cambuur. These things take on a different meaning, though, when Ajax arrives in Leeuwarden. Only three of their most recent 10 games saw fewer than four goals scored. Predicting that kind of outcome once again comes without saying, especially with the way Ajax played their first game after they fired their coach, winning 4-1 in Rotterdam against Excelsior. Bet9ja have 1.48 odds, Paripesa have 1.48 odds and 1xBet have 1.48 odds.
Strasbourg are the only club in Ligue 1 yet to post a home win this season. To Strasbourg’s credit, they have been giving their home matches a real go in recent weeks and their commitment to attacking football has produced some thrilling end-to-end encounters at the Stade de la Meinau. Each of La Racing’s last three contests there have featured over 2.5 goals, while each of Strasbourg’s last two encounters with Montpellier have also seen at least three goals. Supporters in attendance on Sunday could witness another glut of drama here and over 2.5 goals could be worth adding to your coupon again. Bet9ja have 1.90 odds, Paripesa have 2.03 odds and 1xBet have 2.03 odds.
After defeating Torino at home on Wednesday to secure a spot in the Coppa Italia semifinals, Fiorentina should be feeling good this weekend. La Viola can capitalize on the excellent vibe at the Stadio Artemio Franchi by defeating Bologna in Serie A on Sunday. Before their match on Sunday against Fiorentina, Bologna had dropped six of their last nine Serie A road games. Recent seasons have seen Fiorentina and Bologna clash frequently, with three of their previous four games featuring at least three goals. Two 3-3 ties between the teams occurred during those matches, and we anticipate La Viola and Bologna to keep the crowds delighted once more this weekend at the Stadio Artemio Franchi. Bologna’s last seven away games on their travels in the league averaged 3.71 goals per 90 minutes and more drama is in the works on Sunday. Bet9ja have 2.03 odds, Paripesa have 2.12 odds and 1xBet have 2.12 odds.
Anytime Goal scorers
The goals have been evenly distributed throughout the team this season for Bayern Munich, unlike previous years when Lewandowski dominated this area. Still, the team’s top goalscorer in Bundesliga so far is the young phenom Jamal Musiala, who is having a great season. So, we wouldn’t be surprised if he finds a way to score against Wolfsburg as well. Bet9ja have 3.25 odds while Paripesa have 3.24 odds.
Another stunning strike from the lethal Nigerian striker saw his side overcome another test last gameweek with his goal arguably the best in Europe that week. He now has a habit for scoring clutch goals and important ones for his side as he hopes to lead them to the title this season. Not including the forward in today’s selection would have been a travesty given his form in recent weeks. Bet9ja have 2.20 odds while Paripesa have 2.10 odds.
Given that we expect Real Madrid to win and that they scored almost four goals per game in the last four duels with Mallorca, there is little doubt in our minds that Vinicius Jr. will get on the scoresheet. With Karim Benzema slated to miss the game with an injury, the Brazilian will be the team’s most dangerous offensive weapon as he is the team’s second-best goalscorer with seven goals in La Liga this season. So, our prediction is for Vinicius Jr. to score at least once in this game. Bet9ja have 3.50 odds while Paripesa have 4.00 odds.
Lois Openda is enjoying a fine maiden campaign in France with Lens and the striker’s arrival has been one of the driving forces behind the team’s improvement in 2022/23. Openda needs just one more goal to reach double figures in Ligue 1 for the season and the 22-year-old Belgian, who was named on the bench in midweek, should return to the XI on Sunday. Bet9ja have 2.40 odds while Paripesa have 2.30 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.
