The final set of games just before the break would be played today, and the rest of Europe’s elite would wrap up just before the World Cup starts.
There are a lot of fixtures to watch out for, and we have selected the best out of them with the optimal predictions for each match.
With four wins, one draw, and one loss in the last six games in Serie A, AC Milan managed to stay in second place in the standings, but Napoli is still ahead of them by eight points at the moment. Even though Fiorentina is in good form since they won three games in a row, they are way behind AC Milan in the standings since Milan is currently in second place, eleven points ahead of Viola. Clearly, the home team is the favorite to win this game, though we were positively surprised by the odds. In any case, AC Milan is the better team and they are playing at home, so we expect them to beat Fiorentina on Sunday.Bet9ja have 1.76 odds, Paripesa have 1.76 odds and 1xBet have 1.76 odds.
With twenty-six points from fourteen matches in Serie A this season, Roma is currently in the seventh place in the standings, but they remain very close to the Top 4 since they are only a couple of points away from that. So, with more than half of season left in Serie A, Roma seems to be among the teams that will fight for a spot in Champions League next season. While it seems that Torino has been in a bit better form than Roma in the past few matches in Serie A since they won three of their last four games, we would still go with Roma in this game. After all, they are the better team on paper, they have more points than Torino, and they are playing at home, so we can see Roma getting the win in this match. Bet9ja have 1.93 odds, Paripesa have 2.00 odds and 1xBet have 2.00 odds.
Freiburg welcome Union Berlin at the Europa-Park Stadion in Germany’s Bundesliga on Sunday, Union Berlin has dropped points in three of their last four Bundesliga matches ahead of their trip to play Freiburg. Union Berlin’s surprise surge to the top of the table has slowed down in recent weeks and a run of just one win from their last four assignments suggests the wheels might be coming off for the Iron Ones. Freiburg was beaten at a resurgent RB Leipzig in midweek, though they have claimed 13 points from the last 15 on offer at the Europa-Park Stadion and they could make home advantage count again against a Union side on a bit of a wobble. With that considered, we recommend siding with the hosts in the match result market. Bet9ja have 2.04 odds, Paripesa have 2.06 odds and 1xBet have 2.06 odds.
Even though they are without a win for their last couple of matches, and got frustrated with a 1-1 draw against Rennes last weakened, Lille has six more points than at the same stage of the season last year. They are still on the hunt for European places, which are missing from their portfolio this season. After a frustrating draw against Rennes, Lille should have a much easier time against one of the worst teams in Ligue 1. Lille failed to win in their last two matches, but they will face the worst team in the league for the final game of the first part of the season. It’s a good opportunity to finish it off with a win that most fans expect. Angers have lost six matches in a row and seem destined for relegation this season. Bet9ja have 1.32 odds, Paripesa have 1.35 odds and 1xBet have 1.35 odds.
Heerenveen will need to get past their lack of efficiency in advancing past a team they are expected to overcome. Heerenveen’s home record is as unique as they come. They have two wins, two draws, and two losses with a goal difference of 5-5. Cambuur’s away odds are not much different, they have a couple of draws and three losses, but only one win. They scored five goals while allowing eleven. Historically, Heerenveen has more tradition and a better h2h record. Bet9ja have 1.78 odds, Paripesa have 1.78 odds and 1xBet have 1.78 odds.
Even though they are the only undefeated team in the league this season, PSG still hasn’t accumulated enough of the advantage to make sure they have an easier ride into the second part of the season. Thanks to Lens who are keeping pressure on PSG, the home team will look for their 13th win of the season, and sixth at home. They are undefeated at home which is no surprise, but they are not perfect with a single-draw game against Monaco. Nobody scored more goals this season in Ligue 1 than PSG, but not many people are surprised by the powerful attack they have built. Auxerre has one of the worst defensive lines in the league, and it will be an enormous challenge to survive what is coming from players like Mbappe, Neymar, and the rest of the PSG squad. Bet9ja have 1.26 odds, Paripesa have 1.25 odds and 1xBet have 1.25 odds.
While Salernitana is currently four points ahead of Monza, both teams have done according to their expectations, with Monza perhaps exceeding them as well. The last two head-to-head duels between Monza and Salernitana have gone over 2.5 total goals, so we won’t be surprised to see that happening again on Sunday. After all, Monza averaged 2.50 goals per game in Serie A so far, while Salernitana averaged 2.86 goals per game in the Italian league this season. Bet9ja have 1.86 odds, Paripesa have 1.97 odds and 1xBet have 1.97 odds
We’re expecting an entertaining game in the Premier League on Sunday when high-flying Brighton plays host to Unai Emery’s Aston Villa. The Seagulls are in the midst of a winning run right now and will be full of confidence, while their guests beat Man Utd in their last league game and will be looking to make it back-to-back victories at the AmEx. Both of these teams have been involved in exciting and entertaining matches of late, so we have high hopes that Sunday’s class will prove to be end-to-end. Each of Brighton’s last four matches has produced over 3.5 goals, while each of Aston Villa’s last five fixtures has witnessed at least three goals scored, adding plenty of weight to our prediction of over 2.5 goals being scored on Sunday. Bet9ja have 1.88 odds, Paripesa have 1.97 odds and 1xBet have 1.97 odds.
Feyenoord has the fewest losses in the league this season, only one, and that happened against PSV. After beating AZ Alkmaar, Excelsior failed twice in a row endangering their position in the fight to avoid the relegation battle. Feyenoord will finish the first part of the season against one of the teams from the lower part of the league, but with the Excelsior team doing some damage around the league recently. Feyenoord is scoring over two goals per game, and they have some big wins this season playing against lower-ranked teams. Excelsior is one of those teams, especially when it comes to defending their goal. They have allowed 32 goals which is the second-worst mark in the league behind Volendam. Bet9ja have 1.28 odds, Paripesa have 1.28 odds and 1xBet have 1.28 odds.
Mainz and Eintracht Frankfurt go head-to-head in the Rhine-Main derby on Sunday. Mainz is aiming to halt a three-game losing slump when they host Die Adler. Plenty of thrills and spills are expected in the Rhine-Main derby as both teams unleash furious energy to ensure they finish the game with their pride intact and we expect both Mainz and Frankfurt to go for the jugular from the off this weekend. That was certainly the case when the regional rivals last met in May when the excitement flowed in a pulsating 2-2 draw. More frenetic football is in the works in Sunday’s rematch, so back the net to ripple over 2.5 times again. Bet9ja have 1.70 odds, Paripesa have 1.78 odds and 1xBet have 1.78 odds.
Since we expect AC Milan to win, we obviously expect them to score in this match. And one of the top scorers for the team so far has been Rafael Leao with five goals in thirteen games. The Portuguese winger may not be the most prolific scorer, but he is still the leading scorer for AC Milan in Serie A. With that in mind, he is our choice to score against Fiorentina as well. Bet9ja have 2.90 odds while Paripesa have 3.10 odds.
Rashford top scores for Man Utd in the Premier League this season with 4-goals and the England international was in good form in midweek against Aston Villa in the League Cup. There is no doubt that a player of Rashford’s ability should be scoring more goals each season but we’re backing the 25-year-old to score against Fulham this weekend as he is in decent form right now with 3-goals in his last five appearances in all competitions. Bet9ja have 3.60 odds while Paripesa have 3.60 odds.
Mbappe and Neymar are tied for top scorer in the league with 11 goals already which is quite astonishing. Mbappe started a little bit late but has resumed scoring a flurry of goals in recent weeks and we have certainly added him here as a potential goalscorer. We have seen the Frenchman perform a lot this season and we are backing him to score against a poorly set-up side defensively. Bet9ja have 1.66 odds while Paripesa have 1.40 odds.
Lautaro Martínez could be his main aim with the Inter forward scoring in three of his previous six games against Atalanta. We are in for a tough battle between both sides and the Argentine forward would definitely be key to Inter’s success. He has scored seven goals in the league and is joint second in the standings so we can expect him to find the back of the net against a side he is familiar with. Bet9ja have 2.90 odds while Paripesa have 2.55 odds.
Terem Moffi Lorient’s Terem Moffi is joint third in the Ligue 1 golden boot race after matchday 14, netting nine times in 13 outings, already one more than the total he managed in the entirety of 2021/22. Today could be another walk in the park for him in front of the goal as he plays a Strasbourg side that has conceded a lot of goals this season. Eleven goals conceded in their previous five fixtures is a bad return for the defense and Moffi will definitely capitalize. Bet9ja have 2.80 odds while Paripesa have 3.00 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.
