League fixtures have returned this weekend after a spectacular mid-week in Europe for the top teams. There were plenty of cheers and boos to go around.
The weekend has returned, with most teams adequately rested to battle for top spots and league dominance once again. Here are a few top picks for this weekend’s fixtures.
Ajax has made a perfect start to their season which is why we are backing them to win this game easy today. Ajax is sitting top of the Eredivisie standings and has won all five of their games to date, more importantly, they’ve only conceded three – all of those games came in the first two games of the season. Combine that with Ajax’s midweek Champions League win and it’s now four games won on the spin. The team’s head record to head is something to consider as three of the last four meetings have seen Ajax win. With all that considered, an Ajax victory hardly sounds like an impossibility. Bet9ja have 1.19 odds, Paripesa have 1.21 odds and 1xBet have 1.21 odds.
PSG have been near perfect so far this season with their Champions League tie in the week further proof of how good they can be. After an impressive show against the Italian giants Juventus, it looks as if the team is finally coming together. Brest have just one win in their previous five league games and come to the home of the French champions with a very poor form. PSG would look to extend the winning run and cement their place at the top of the table in the coming weeks. PSG have come out with five wins in their last five fixtures against today’s opponents and we expect more of the same today. Bet9ja have 1.08 odds, Paripesa have 1.09 odds and 1xBet have 1.09 odds.
Unbeaten champions AC Milan travel to take on winless Sampdoria on Saturday in what looks like a Serie A mismatch on paper and we expect the result to fit the formbook this weekend. Milan has won four of their last five encounters with La Samp and with their hosts in a state of early disarray this season, the Rossoneri could land another knockout blow at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris. Buoyed by their derby win last week, we recommend siding with AC Milan here. AC Milan is targeting their third straight victory over Sampdoria when the teams meet in Genoa on Saturday. Bet9ja have 1.52 odds, Paripesa have 1.64 odds and 1xBet have 1.64 odds.
After only managing a draw in the Merseyside derby and losing heavily in midweek against Napoli, Klopp will be demanding a response from his players ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash at home to Wolves. Liverpool has an excellent recent record against Wolves, picking up wins in each of the pair’s last seven meetings. Wolves have failed to score in three of their last five Premier League matches showing how weak they are going forward. Wolves don’t look the side to stop this wounded Liverpool team. Bet9ja have 1.30 odds, Paripesa have 1.34 odds and 1xBet have 1.34 odds.
Atletico Madrid welcome Celta Vigo to the Estádio Cívitas Metropolitano for a La Liga clash on Saturday, September 10th. Atletico will be determined to leave their inconsistency behind as they prepare to face Celta Vigo. Atletico Madrid’s performances this season have been hot and cold, though Diego Simeone won’t accept anything other than a victory at home to Celta Vigo on Saturday. Atletico has come out on top in this fixture in three of the clubs’ last four meetings, while Celta hasn’t enjoyed a league win at the Estádio Cívitas Metropolitano since 2007. We’re tipping the hosts to dominate again in Saturday’s latest iteration and Atletico appears to be priced generously in the match result markets. Bet9ja have 1.62 odds, Paripesa have 1.66 odds and 1xBet have 1.66 odds.
Following the same theme, we expect to see a glut of goals at the Allianz Arena on Saturday when Bayern entertain Stuttgart. Each of the last seven meetings between the clubs has produced over 3.5 goals with the contests averaging 4.28 goals per 90 minutes overall. Bayern has already hit 17 goals in just five Bundesliga assignments since the summer and they have the firepower to land another flurry of blows against Stuttgart this weekend. With that in mind, we recommend backing over 2.5 goals to hit the net again. Bet9ja have 1.19 odds, Paripesa have 1.22 odds and 1xBet have 1.22 odds.
Eintracht Frankfurt has stepped on the gas in recent weeks and they put four goals past successive opponents with meaty wins over Werder Bremen and RB Leipzig in their last two assignments. Wolfsburg conceded four times in their last match against a usually goal-shy Cologne side and on Saturday, Die Wolfe’s limp defense comes up against a razor-sharp Frankfurt frontline. That looks like a recipe for goals and bettors are advised to back over 2.5 of them to hit the net this weekend. Bet9ja have 1.65 odds, Peripesa have 1.74 odds and 1xBet have 1.74 odds.
Inter Milan have lost three of their last four games ahead of Saturday’s meeting with in-form Torino in Serie A. Due largely to Inter’s abject defending, matches involving the Milanese giants have been brimming with the incident of late. Indeed, five of their six fixtures this season have featured at least three goals, with their last four Serie A tussles averaging 4.0 goals per 90 minutes alone. Awkward customers Torino can trouble Inter on Saturday and that gives Saturday’s game plenty of goal-scoring potential. With that in mind, we recommend backing over 2.5 goals to hit the net in Milan. Bet9ja have 1.46 odds, Paripesa have 1.46 odds and 1xBet have 1.46 odds.
Two of the teams that have made the poorest starts to the new Premier League season go head-to-head on Saturday as Leicester plays host to Aston Villa. The Foxes are yet to secure their first victory of the season but might fancy their chances at home against an Aston Villa side that has lost four of their opening six matches. Four of the last six meetings between these two clubs have ended with at least three goals being scored, and we are expecting more of the same on Saturday. Leicester have seen over 2.5 goals scored in four of their last six matches while the same can be said for four of Aston Villa’s last six fixtures as well, adding plenty more weight to our second prediction for Saturday’s Premier League clash. Bet9ja have 1.78 odds, Paripesa have 1.89 odds and 1xBet have 1.89 odds.
The PSG vs Brest game has been included once again and we are certain that we will see at least 2.5 goals. PSG started the season tearing teams apart and has a season average (six games) of 4.7 goals per match. Brest meanwhile has shipped goals at quite an alarming rate and is averaging a total goals ratio of 4.0 per game. With that considered, it’s hard to imagine this match lacking goals. Bet9ja have 1.17 odds, Paripesa have 1.18 odds and 1xBet have 1.18 odds.
Georgian sensation Khvicha Kvaratskhelia was superb against Liverpool in midweek and though he didn’t find the net himself, he did claim an assist. Domestically, the 21-year-old has notched four times in five appearances since the summer and with Napoli striker Victor Osimhen out injured, Kvaratskhelia will shoulder more goal-getting responsibility against Spezia. The youngster is strong enough to carry that extra pressure and he could be worth backing to improve his early tally this weekend. Bet9ja have 2.50 odds while Paripesa have 2.62 odds.
It hasn’t taken prolific Pole Robert Lewandowski long to get his feet under the table at Barcelona. The evergreen veteran continued his early hot streak with a goal at Sevilla last weekend. The 34-year-old has now bagged five goals in just four La Liga appearances and he should have numerous chances to bolster his numbers further against struggling Cadiz on Saturday. With that in mind, we recommend backing the striker in the anytime goalscorers market. Bet9ja have 1.65 odds while Paripesa have 1.61 odds.
Mitrovic has been accused of being a ‘Championship’ player, someone who can score goals at a lower level but flatters to deceive in the big leagues. Well, the Serbian international is proving the doubters wrong with a series of impressive displays in the early stages of the new season which have seen him score 6-goals in the Premier League alone, and we’re backing the 27-year-old to add to his tally against Fulham’s local rivals this weekend. Bet9ja have 2.90 odds while Paripesa have 2.68 odds.
Luis Diaz has been one of the few bright sparks in an otherwise dull start to the season for Liverpool. The Colombian international has scored three goals in the opening six league games this season and is just one away from his entire total in the Premier League last season. We’re backing Diaz to find the back of the net against Wolves this weekend and lead Liverpool to glory. Bet9ja have 2.55 odds while Paripesa have 2.40 odds.
The Frenchman would be on the scoresheet here today after an impressive performance that saw him score a brace against Juventus. He extended his goal-scoring streak to four games. Mbappé has found the net in PSG’s previous four H2Hs against Brest too. Bet9ja have 1.40 odds while Paripesa have 1.50 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.
