It’s been an eventful week in football as the crisis in Eastern Europe has caused several ripples, including forcing Roman Abramovich to put Chelsea up for sale. Elsewhere, the whispers of Super League have come to limelight once again.
Regardless, league football continues to wax on strong and we bring you the likely betting tips and predictions to go with from all of the day’s action.
Chelsea are well off the pace in the title race but have to concentrate on winning their remaining Premier League games and hope that both Liverpool and Manchester City go through poor runs of form. Burnley have the home advantage this weekend and have shown major improvements in recent weeks. However, they have not fared well against Chelsea during their time in the Premier League together. Chelsea have won five of their last seven encounters with Burnley and have not lost against Saturday’s hosts since 2017. This is why we are backing Chelsea to win here today. Bet9ja have 1.50 odds, Paripesa have 1.53 odds and 1xBet have 1.53 odds.
Liverpool are the closest they have been to Man City in a long time so can’t afford to drop any points this weekend when they play host to West ham in the Premier League. The Hammers beat Liverpool 3-2 the last time the side locked horns and victory for West Ham on Saturday could be enough to take them back into the top four. However, Liverpool have won five of their last seven league meetings with West Ham. The Reds are in great form right now with wins of one form or another in each of their last six matches. A solid performance is what we expect from Klopp’s men here today as they would be riding the joy of their cup win. Bet9ja have 1.33 odds, Paripesa have 1.34 odds and 1xBet have 1.34 odds.
Cagliari are in the midst of a relegation battle in Serie A, while this weekend’s guests, Lazio, are challenging for the European places. The visitors have a great recent record against Cagliari, they come into this game as favorites to win. Lazio have won six of their last seven games against Cagliari and we’re backing the away side to end the weekend victorious once again. Cagliari are in the midst of an unbeaten run though, so we are still expecting the game to be closely fought. Lazio have played a lot of tricky games of late and aren’t the form favorites ahead of their trip to Cagliari but we’re still backing Immobile and co to get a result. Bet9ja have 2.08 odds, Paripesa have 2.13 odds and 1xBet have 2.13 odds.
All eyes will be on Estadio Santiago Bernabeu when Real Madrid and Real Sociedad go head to head in the La Liga round 27. Los Blancos are on the right track to regain the domestic trophy, but they can’t afford any complacency in the season finale. As always, a man to watch in the home team will be Karim Benzema, who scored the winner against Rayo Vallecano at the weekend. Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid was, once again, poor in their performance level last weekend with a slender 1-0 win away to city rivals Rayo Vallecano. The home team remain sitting at the top of the table. They come up against a Real Sociedad B side that has been low-scoring throughout the campaign an easy win is on the books for this Madrid side. Bet9ja have 1.60 odds, Paripesa have 1.63 odds and 1xBet have 1.63 odds
PSG will come into the game following a 3-1 Ligue 1 win with the downing of St Etienne in their previous match. Coming into this clash, Paris Saint-Germain remain unbeaten by Nice when they have played them away from home in the previous 4 league games. Their opponent on Saturday, Paris Saint Germain, come into the match having picked up 15 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches. The Parisians won their last league match at home to AS Saint-Etienne. Expected goals of 2.8 to 0.6 in favor of Paris Saint Germain indicate it was likely a fair result and we’re backing Pochettino’s men for the win. Bet9ja have 1.82 odds, Paripesa have 1.83 odds and 1xBet have 1.83 odds.
Over 2.5 Goals
What a game we have on the table this weekend in Serie A as 6th-placed Roma attempted to go level on points with Atalanta in 5th as the race for the European places starts to heat up. At least three goals have been scored in five of the last seven meetings between these two clubs in Serie A, and we’re predicting that at least three goals will be scored in Saturday’s latest encounter. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in three of Roma’s and four of Atalanta’s last six outings in league and cup. Bet9ja have 1.77 odds, Paripesa have 1.88 odds and 1xBet have 1.88 odds.
We are treated to a top-of-the-table clash between Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen in Round 25’s action. A win for the Bavarians will be customary but an upset will open up the Bundesliga title race. It is difficult to decipher who will return with the bragging points in this fixture. However, it is not difficult to predict that there will be a goal galore as Munich hosts Leverkusen. Both sides possess one of the most fearful attacking units in German top-flight football and should prove it on Saturday afternoon. Expect the goals tally to go more than Over 2.5 in this meeting as both sides battle it amongst themselves. Bet9ja have 1.26 odds, Paripesa have 1.25 odds and 1xBet have 1.25 odds.
Neither Hertha Berlin nor Eintracht Frankfurt will head into this fixture with confidence. Both sides have been struggling for consistency and have failed to get out of their respective ruts. Previous duels between these sides at the Olympiastadion tend to finish with higher than average scorelines. With four of the last five matches involving Hertha concluding with over 2.5 total goals, our prediction for this meeting is the same. However, Frankfurt have struggled to score regularly and has only scored thrice in this period. But they too will feel confident against a side that has conceded 16 goals in this short time interval. Bet9ja have 1.72 odds, Peripesa have 1.78 odds and 1xBet have 1.78 odds.
Union are not known for their goalscoring threat. However, even the pragmatic Urs Fisher will want his charges to stack their goals scored tally in this meeting. Nevertheless, they will be concerned with their own defensive performance after only getting over their mini-slump. With both sides seeing three of their last four competitive fixtures conclude with over 2.5 total goals, we are confident that this meeting will follow the norm and not be an outlier. Bet9ja have 2.10 odds, Paripesa have 2.21 odds and 1xBet have 2.21 odds.
Brendan Rodgers got the Foxes back to winning ways in the Premier League on Tuesday night and will be hoping to see his side go on a good run of form to take some of the pressure off his shoulders that had been growing over the last few weeks. New Leeds manager, Jesse Marsch, has a tough task on his hands turning his teams’ fortunes around. The American manager will be looking for a response from his players both defensively and going forward, so we expect Leeds to give Leicester a good game. Both teams have scored in each of the last four meetings between these two clubs in league and cup, while four of the Foxes’ last five matches have also ended with both teams getting on the scoreboard. Bet9ja have 1.54 odds, Paripesa have 1.51 odds and 1xBet have 1.51 odds.

Frenchman Kylian Mbappé is Paris Saint Germain’s top scorer with 14 goals in Ligue 1 this season and is the favorite to score against OGC Nice on Saturday. He has had a really great season and would be looking to top it off by winning individual accolades for his side. A goal here seems likely for him. Bet9ja has 2.00 odds while Paripesa have 1.95 odds.
He wasn’t on the score sheet as Bayern narrowly found a win through Leroy Sane, but before that, he had scored in three successive games and had a goal count of five. He also has more goals than appearances this season making this pick easy. He has gone without scoring in successive games just once this season. This is very impressive even for him and we are backing him to score here. Bet9ja have 1.45 odds while Paripesa have 1.33 odds.
A hamstring injury saw him sidelined for over eight games in all competitions and he missed a lot of League matches. He returned last week with a banger like he never left the scoring to see his side take home three points. We are backing him to get a goal here today.

Back-to-back goals for the Frenchman has seen us include him here amongst the goalscorers list. He scored the only goal last time out for Madrid as they narrowly won their tie and extended their lead up top. He would surely be in top shape here today and amongst the goals most likely.
