The weekend goes underway with the remaining of Europe’s top leagues joining in the action. With a few rests for teams from Germany and Italy to mention a few, we would see these teams take on each other today.
We have carefully selected the best options for today’s game below.
Dortmund is aiming to get their campaign back on track against Stuttgart following a poor run of just one win in five games. Dortmund welcomes Stuttgart to Signal-Iduna-Park for a Bundesliga fixture on Saturday, October 22nd. Cologne can climb into the top four with a victory this week. Dortmund is down to a disappointing eighth position in the Bundesliga following a poor run of just one victory in five assignments and their 2-0 reverse at Union Berlin last time out was their third away defeat on the spin. At Signal-Iduna-Park, BVB is generally a more formidable force, but their last three matches there featured two wins and a draw with Bayern Munich. With the Yellow Wall pushing them on, Dortmund can find their footing with another positive result at home when Stuttgart visits on Saturday. Bet9ja have 1.55 odds, Paripesa have 1.56 odds and 1xBet have 1.56 odds.
Although Nottingham Forest may have earned a respectable draw against Brighton throughout the week, nobody anticipates Cooper’s team to escape a loss when Liverpool visits Nottingham Forest’s home stadium on Saturday. The guests were anticipated to be Man City’s main competition for the Premier League crown this year, but Klopp’s team is now 11 points behind league leaders Arsenal and has a lot of distance to make up. As they have in both of their past two league contests, we are betting on Liverpool to triumph on Saturday. The previous season, Liverpool defeated Nottingham Forest 1-0 in the FA Cup, and Klopp’s team comes into this weekend’s meeting with a winning record of four out of their last five games overall, while Nottingham Forest has lost four of their last six matches. Bet9ja have 1.27 odds, Paripesa have 1.29 odds and 1xBet have 1.329 odds.
Valencia has pocketed seven points from the last nine on offer at home ahead of their clash with Mallorca on Saturday. Overall consistency is still proving elusive for Valencia, though Los Che has produced a string of good results at the home of late where they have taken seven points from the last nine on offer. Anything other than another victory over an out-of-sorts Mallorca side this weekend would be seen as a failure by demanding Valencia boss Gino Gattuso, though we think the hosts are worth backing to get the job done. Mallorca has lost three of their last four assignments and they don’t travel well. With those factors in mind, support Valencia to prevail. Bet9ja have 1.80 odds, Paripesa have 1.84 odds and 1xBet have 1.84 odds.
With four wins from their last five matches, Bayern Munich is starting to click into gear ahead of their trip to play Hoffenheim on Saturday. Bayern Munich has been uncharacteristically inconsistent in the Bundesliga this season, though they fired a warning shot to their domestic rivals with a thumping 5-0 win over highflying Freiburg last weekend and they can take a step closer to the summit with another victory at Hoffenheim on Saturday. The Bavarians have scored a whopping 19 times in their last five competitive assignments and they should have enough firepower to outgun Hoffenheim. Bet9ja have 1.50 odds, Paripesa have 1.50 odds and 1xBet have 1.50 odds.
After losing at Anfield, Man City fell farther behind Arsenal in the battle for the Premier League title this year. This Saturday, Guardiola’s team will face a Brighton team that has yet to record a victory under their new manager after only managing a draw against struggling Nottingham Forest at home in midweek. When Man City plays Brighton at the Etihad this weekend, we’re betting on them to get all three points. In their past six encounters with the Seagulls, Manchester City has triumphed five times. While Brighton has failed to score in their past three league games, Guardiola’s team has maintained a clean sheet in four of their last six games. Bet9ja have 1.19 odds, Paripesa have 1.24 odds and 1xBet have 1.24 odds.
In their last five home games, Gladbach has won four of them, and they will play Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga on Saturday. With a drop into the goal markets, Gladbach has been involved in some frantic football matches lately, and astonishingly, their previous four Bundesliga games have averaged a sky-high 5.0 goals per 90 minutes. Gladbach and Frankfurt are both dangerous enough teams. The over 2.5 goals line has also been easily crossed in three of Frankfurt’s previous four league games, so it’s reasonable to anticipate that there will be plenty of excitement when Die Adler travels to face Gladbach in Saturday’s evening start. With goals planned, it’s worthwhile to back over 2.5 of them to score here. Bet9ja have 1.58 odds, Paripesa have 1.64 odds and 1xBet have 1.64 odds.
Real Madrid is chasing their fourth victory in five La Liga home games when they host Sevilla in the capital on Saturday. Real Madrid has had to score plenty of goals to win games this season, though Los Blancos are sufficient firepower to ensure that the goals keep flowing. 80% of their fixtures in Spain’s top flight this term has delivered at least three goals and more excitement is on the menu when Real host Sevilla on Saturday evening. Over 2.5 goals have landed in each of the last three meetings between the sides and we’re confident that trend will continue this weekend. Bet9ja have 1.57 odds, Paripesa have 1.64 odds and 1xBet have 1.64 odds.
On Saturday, October 22nd, Leverkusen plays Wolfsburg in the German Bundesliga in the BayArena. Leverkusen, who is struggling, is aiming for only their third victory of the year. This season, Bayer Leverkusen’s defense has fallen far short of expectations, as Die Werkself has conceded three goals or more in three of their previous five games. On Saturday, Wolfsburg will be salivating at the thought of cutting into Bayer’s shaky backline, and if they attack with the intent we anticipate, fans will be treated to an interesting match at the BayArena. In light of this, we are expecting over 2.5 goals to occur for the fourth straight Leverkusen match. Bet9ja have 1.57 odds, Paripesa have 1.66 odds and 1xBet have 1.66 odds.
After losing four straight games and with Lyon coming to town with their mounting issues, things are becoming too hot for Montpellier. Eight of Montpellier’s eleven games had more than 2.5 goals scored, while Lyon has a 7-4 over/under record. Given that their performances this season have fallen short of expectations, both coaches, Olivier Dall’Oglio in Montpellier and Laurent Blanc in Lyon, are in a precarious situation. As a result, both clubs might go anyway in terms of scoring or conceding goals. Blanc has only recently arrived, so he won’t have much time to get things moving for the management and impatient fan base. Bet9ja have 1.87 odds, Paripesa have 1.88 odds and 1xBet have 1.88 odds.
Encounters between Dortmund and Stuttgart rarely fail to entertain and incredibly, 15 of their last 16 skirmishes between the sides in all competitions have produced over 2.5 goals. Ahead of their latest trip to Dortmund, Stuttgart has been involved in some pulsating fixtures, indeed, their last five league contests have averaged 3.8 goals per 90 minutes and more excitement could be on the menu when they arrive at Signal-Iduna-Park on Saturday. With that record considered, expect goals again when these teams collide. Bet9ja have 1.58 odds, Paripesa have 1.64 odds and 1xBet have 1.64 odds.
Although Rafael Leao scored just four goals in Serie A this season, he is one of the top scorers for the defending champions, along with Olivier Giroud. And since we expect Milan to score more than once against Monza, we can see Leao adding to his tally and climbing up a bit on the list of top scorers in Serie A this season. Bet9ja have 2.75 odds while Paripesa have 2.62 odds.
Rapid winger Leroy Sane has been in devastating form for Bayern of late and the ex-Man City star managed to rattle the net five times in his last five appearances for the champions in all competitions. Sane scored a ferociously hit effort against Freiburg in his last runout and he is playing with enough of a swagger to prolong his purple patch at Hoffenheim’s expense on Saturday. As such, the 26-year-old is a top candidate in the anytime scorer market this weekend. Bet9ja have 2.60 odds while Paripesa have 2.15 odds.
Firmino was linked with a move away from Anfield this summer and that has only spurred the Brazilian striker on as he has scored 6-goals in 6 league starts for Liverpool this season. The 31-year-old forward has been scoring in the Champions League as well with his last six appearances in a Liverpool shirt in all competitions producing 5-goals, so you can see why we’re backing him to score against Nottingham Forest. Bet9ja have 2.15 odds while Paripesa have 1.91 odds.
Haaland might not have scored against Liverpool last time out but the Manchester City striker looked dangerous in that game. We’re backing Haaland to score against Brighton on Saturday and wouldn’t be surprised if he went on to bag two or three goals to add to his current tally of 15 in the Premier League alone. He has been very productive and provided good returns when selected to score this season. Bet9ja have 1.45 odds while Paripesa have 1.36 odds.
The Balon d or winner would be publicly announced in front of the home crowd and we expect him to be back on the score sheet yet again. He has scored in two consecutive La Liga fixtures and could be on his way to making it three since his return from the sidelines. Sevilla doesn’t have what it takes to stop the striker as he is in incredible form going into this fixture. Bet9ja have 1.80 odds while Paripesa have 1.72 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.
