We offer you the finest picks from all five of Europe’s major leagues as we come to an exciting conclusion to a weekend of games.
In the days ahead, the European contests will get underway, and we’ll make sure to provide you the finest matchup advice.
Roma’s rights to lose points are over. If the team wants to achieve something significant this season, then victories are the only results that Jose Mourinho’s boys should be getting in the next few fixtures. Roma might have to bring their A-game for this one. Jose Mourinho is tired of dropping points and he will probably launch into attack from the start. The last 10 games between Roma and Lecce ended with nine victories for Roma and only one Lecce success. The Europa League games will be somewhat of an obstacle for Roma this season but Jose Mourinho is one of the most experienced coaches around and he knows how to juggle multiple tournaments. Roma shouldn’t have issues against this troubled Lecce team. Bet9ja have 1.38 odds, Paripesa have 1.38 odds and 1xBet have 1.38 odds.
West Ham finally got their season up and running with a comfortable 2-0 win against Wolves last time out and now take on an injury-hit Fulham. The newly-promoted visitors have made a very positive start to life back in the Premier League but injuries and a suspension will make their trip to West Ham on Sunday even more difficult. The Hammers have won five of their last six encounters with Fulham and we’re backing the hosts to secure all 3pts on Sunday. David Moyes might have to rotate his starting eleven after playing in Belgium in midweek but Fulham has a lot of injuries to key first-team players including top scorer Mitrovic, which is why we fancy the home side to win this weekend. Bet9ja have 1.77 odds, Paripesa have 1.78 odds and 1xBet have 1.77 odds.
After a stunning victory against Monchengladbach in the home, VfB Stuttgart is set to visit to face Union Berlin in the next league engagement. The hosts enter the field on the back of a defeat. Union Berlin has collected only three points in the last five league outings and got only two victories in the last seven matches of various competitions. But the Iron Ones seem confident over their home advantage following consecutive two home victories. On the other side, Stuttgart made their first win in the last five league outings. The relegation-threatened visitors have also been on the back of two consecutive away defeats before this game and are winless in the last five H2Hs against Union Berlin. Based on the given stats, we believe the hosts to add three crucial points to their name. Bet9ja have 2.83 odds, Paripesa have 2.89 odds and 1xBet have 2.89 odds.
Barcelona suffered a 1-0 defeat to Inter Milan in the Champions League in midweek, their second successive loss in that competition, but they could barely be playing better domestically. Xavi’s side head into the weekend fixtures joint top of La Liga and having dropped just two points in seven matches. They have won their last half a dozen league fixtures. On the road, they have suffered successive defeats. They have a poor track record against Barcelona and can’t beat them today with the form the team is in in the league. Bet9ja have 1.28 odds, Paripesa have 1.30 odds and 1xBet have 1.30 odds.
Freiburg produced a calm and composed game to beat Augsburg on their home patch with a 2-1 score. Nils Petersen and Nico Schlotterbeck were the scorers for Christian Streich’s men. Hertha Berlin was crushed by a 6-1 performance from RB Leipzig in the recent match. Hertha Berlin is going through a torrid run of form and there cannot be a better confirmation that the thrashing from RB Leipzig. Freiburg has returned to winning ways with the success over Augsburg and Streich’s men have been picking up a home form in recent weeks with two wins in the last four. Hertha Berlin has suffered a defeat in seven out of the 11 away games this season. They are looking to suffer a double at the hands of Freiburg this season. Bet9ja have 2.36 odds, Paripesa have 2.38 odds and 1xBet have 2.38 odds.
If there’s one thing certain, it’s that Napoli is going to demolish Cremonese this Sunday. The newly-promoted team isn’t quite enjoying the start the fans were hopeful for. Napoli is among the best-attacking teams in Europe right now. The team is at a Manchester City level in terms of goals! Napoli has scored 18 goals in eight Serie A games but the Champions League performances have been even more shocking. The team scored 10 goals in the games against Liverpool and Ajax! We anticipate a top-attacking performance by the visiting team in this game. Bet9ja have 1.60 odds, Paripesa have 1.69 odds and 1xBet have 1.69 odds.
Celta Vigo has lost their last two away matches by a margin of two goals or more, and half of the last ten head-to-head meetings have seen Barca win by at least two goals these statistics provide us with an Over 2.5 option here. Few predicted Celta Vigo’s season-opening performance, with a chunk of their goals as well as wins coming from playing at home. They have lost two straight matches away from home, both by a massive margin courtesy of losses to Atletico Madrid and Valencia of 4-1 and 3-0, respectively. Five of the last ten meetings between the two by at least two goals, four of them at Camp Nou. Bet9ja have 1.53 odds, Paripesa have 1.53 odds and 1xBet have 1.53 odds.
A shocking 5-1 drubbing by Werder Bremen last time out was not ideal for Borussia Monchengladbach, yet the fact that half of their conceded league goals all season came in that one game suggests that they are capable of much better performances. The visitors have posted differing results across each of their competitive matches this season, a run culminating with a 1-0 defeat to Partizan Belgrade in their midweek European encounter. The Billy Goats have enjoyed a relatively strong start to the season, but they could struggle here, especially given their considerable injury list. Although this is arguably one of the hardest Bundesliga games to call this weekend, an over 2.5 call is the most likely here in this fixture. Bet9ja have 1.58 odds, Paripesa have 1.68 odds and 1xBet have 1.68 odds.
Following an unbeaten start to their home league season, Heerenveen will be licking their lips at the chance to face a PSV side that was humbled by Cambuur in the last round while also having to recover from their midweek trip to Zurich ahead of this encounter. Heerenveen is yet to face a ‘Big Three’ side at home this season though, so their unbeaten record here will surely come under serious threat with the visit of Ruud van Nistelrooy’s PSV. However, the Super Frisians are unbeaten in nine straight home H2Hs. Four out of their previous five H2H fixtures ended with an over 2.5 goal outcome with the most recent fixture ending with four goals. Bet9ja have 1.55 odds, Paripesa have 1.56 odds and 1xBet have 1.56 odds.
Real Sociedad heads into this fixture on the back of four successive wins, three of which have seen both teams score. It’s also been a good start to the season for Villarreal, who has played a dozen times and lost just once, with both teams netting on four occasions. Unai Emery’s side has scored in 75% of their fixtures, including four of seven on the road, where they have won each game in which they have netted. With both sides willing to fire goals at both ends of the pitch we certainly see an over 2.5-goal outcome. Bet9ja have 2.00 odds, Paripesa have 2.12 odds and 1xBet have 2.12 odds.
The World Cup draws near and Paulo Dybala will want to prove to the Argentinian national coach that he has a place in his team. So far, he is doing quite well in his new club. Paulo Dybala was the big hero for his team in the Inter Milan game in the last fixture where he scored with a lovely striker. Furthermore, he also scored at Stadio Olimpico against HJK in the Europa League. He’s proving to be a real bargain and we can’t wait to see how well he will do against Lecce. Bet9ja have 2.40 odds while Paripesa have 2.37 odds.
Scamacca is starting to find his feet in England after a costly move from Sassuolo in the summer but after scoring in his last two games for the Hammers, we’re backing the Italian striker to find the back of the net against Fulham on Sunday. Scamacca impressed in Serie A last season scoring 16 goals in the league alone for an average Sassuolo side. He is expected to enjoy life in the Premier League once he adjusts to the pace of the English game. Bet9ja have 2.90 odds while Paripesa have 2.60 odds.
Striker Lewandowski has scored nine goals in La Liga this season in 7 games for the Catalan side and could be on his way to reaching double-figure goals already. He has produced great performances for the club in the league this season with his goals leading his side to the top of the league standings. Celta is poor defensively and would have a hard time containing this behemoth of a striker. Bet9ja have 1.67 odds while Paripesa have 1.44 odds.
Currently, the top scorer for his side this season in all competitions the striker bagged a brace in their midweek win. The Eredivisie has seen its fair share of talents and this player seems to be the real deal. With 8 goals in 8 games already this pick suits him. We are sure to see him score in in consecutive games for this PSV side today. Bet9ja have 2.45 odds while Paripesa have 2.40 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.
