This Sunday marks an end to the weekend games and more focus on some midweek league games across Europe.
The Carabao cup final also takes place today which provides some mouthwatering events for football viewers today
Inter Milan has won five of their last six games in all competitions ahead of their clash with Bologna on Sunday. Inter Milan has been in fine form in recent weeks, winning five of their last six assignments in all competitions overall, and while Bologna has been doing some good work themselves of late, they could find it difficult to match the Nerazzurri’s class. Inter have beaten I Rossoblù in four of the clubs’ last five encounters and our first Bologna vs Inter Milan prediction tips the visitors to enhance that record even further with another victory. Bet9ja have 1.73 odds, Paripesa have 1.79 odds and 1xBet have 1.79 odds.
Both teams had tough games last week, and while PSV failed to win, they also didn’t lose drawing at a tricky opponent like Utrecht. Twente, on the other side of things, was disappointed to lose against Go Ahead Eagles. Losing that encounter got them nine points behind leaders Feyenoord, and now their chances of taking the title look slim. However, they are still in the hunt for a Champions League place, and facing one of their rivals for that position is going to be a difficult proposition. PSV vs Twente is destined to be an exciting duel with everything to play for. Twente won their first game of the season, but it has been over ten years since the last time the Enschede team won in Eindhoven. Bet9ja have 1.63 odds, Paripesa have 1.66 odds and 1xBet have 1.66 odds.
It is a grueling schedule once again for Monaco, similar to what they had to go through during the first part of the season. But the team knows what is at stake, and is ready to fight for trophies. Even though Nice has been playing well, this Monaco vs OG Nice prediction will give the nod to the home team. Monaco is in the middle of a five-game winning streak in all competitions, and with their fourth game in just over ten days, it will be a big challenge to continue with their positive form. Nice had their winning streak of four league matches end last weekend when they disappointed their fans by playing a goalless draw at home against Reims. Monaco has won five of their last six h2h duels with one game ending in a draw. Bet9ja have 2.04 odds, Paripesa have 2.06 odds and 1xBet have 2.06 odds.
On Sunday, Bayern Munich will welcome Urs Fischer’s team at the Allianz Arena in an effort to maintain their lead over their opponents and end Union Berlin’s chances of winning the Bundesliga. The two clubs, who are tied for second place with Borussia Dortmund in terms of points, have been playing well lately and may be difficult to separate. The Bavarians will seek to catch Union cold in the early stages and command the game from there – a technique that has suited Julian Nagelsmann’s team well at home this term. This weekend’s final result may be a win for Union at home because even the greatest opponents seldom manage to overwhelm their defensive setup. Bet9ja have 1.33 odds, Paripesa have 1.35 odds and 1xBet have 1.35 odds.
Reims is undefeated in their last five matches getting a couple of wins in the process while Toulouse got three victories with two losses in the same period. Playing at home, Reims won four out of their last five games, and five overall for the season going with four draws, and losses on two occasions. Toulouse’s away form hasn’t been as good, they lost seven times, winning only three games with one match ending in a draw. Toulouse has a better h2h record in their last ten matches winning six times with Reims taking home the victory in two tries while an additional couple of games ended in a draw. Toulouse won their first league meeting this season by a single goal as the difference maker. Bet9ja have 2.13 odds, Paripesa have 2.23 odds and 1xBet have 2.23 odds.
Freiburg has won four of their last five assignments as they prepare to host Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga on Sunday. Each of Bayer Leverkusen’s last three matches featured five goals and their struggles in defense have contributed greatly to the high-scoring nature of their games. On Sunday, the story could be similar when Bayer will take on Freiburg without the key suspended defensive duo, Piero Hincapie and Jonathan Tah. Five goals rattled the net with Die Werkself last tackled Freiburg in September and more excitement is on the menu here. As a consequence, another stake in over 2.5 goals is advised. Bet9ja have 1.78 odds, Paripesa have 1.86 odds and 1xBet have 1.86 odds.
Bayern Munich and Union Berlin are level on 43 points each ahead of their Bundesliga title tussle on Sunday. Sunday’s game feels like a crucial juncture in this season’s Bundesliga title chase, and we expect both Bayern Munich and Union Berlin to push for victory at the Allianz Arena in a bid to strike a potentially pivotal blow in the battle for the top spot. The last three encounters between the Bavarians and The Iron Ones featured a whopping 13 goals and excitement levels could be sky-high again in what promises to be a fascinating skirmish between the teams in Munich. With that in mind, a stake in over 2.5 goals is recommended at the prices on offer. Bet9ja have 1.55 odds, Paripesa have 1.55 odds and 1xBet have 1.55 odds.
Since the coaching change, Ajax has changed and is now the biggest threat to leaders Feyenoord. Since John Heitinga took over as coach, Ajax has not only been winning games but also scoring goals in waves. Ajax scored more than 3.5 goals in each of Heitinga’s four league games in charge. At the same time, their last five games against Vitesse were losses. Three of the Vitesse games over the same time frame featured more than three goals scored. Ajax had the most over 3.5 goals records this season with 13, while Vitesse came in fourth with ten of those games. Bet9ja have 1.50 odds, Paripesa have 1.52 odds and 1xBet have 1.52 odds.
After three straight losses, Almeria’s strong start to the season has partly faded, and they are now in danger of being demoted. Barcelona is dominating La Liga, but on Thursday night, Manchester United eliminated them from the Europa League, dealing a severe setback to their season. Because of the 2-1 loss, four of their previous six games have featured three or more goals. Xavi will be hopeful that the return to domestic play would help his team’s fortunes. They had, after all, been in excellent form on the road, winning ten of their first eleven league games, six of which featured more than two strikes. We predict an over 2.5 goals outcome in this match. Bet9ja have 1.58 odds, Paripesa have 1.62 odds and 1xBet have 1.62 odds.
Anytime Goal scorers
The ultimate leader for PSG, and the top scorer with 15 goals. He recently came back to the field after suffering an injury which is the best possible news for the Paris team. With Neymar injured, Kylian Mbappé will shoulder some extra responsibility, and he would tie Edinson Cavani (200 goals) as PSG’s all-time top scorer with a brace here. He has the ability to score and we know that he is capable of doing that here. Bet9ja have 2.50 odds while Paripesa have 2.15 odds.
One of the biggest stories of the Ligue 1 season is about young English forward Folarin Balogun. He came to Reims last summer as a loanee signing from Arsenal, and not many people expected that he will take France’s top division by storm. He has scored 15 goals which make him the joint-top scorer in the league. Balogun missed a crucial penalty kick last week against Nice which would put him at the top of the scorer’s rankings. Reims already tried to make Balogun’s transfer from Arsenal a permanent one, but the London club refused to do so. This Reims vs Toulouse match will be a perfect opportunity for the young forward to further make his mark in Ligue 1. Bet9ja have 2.10 odds while Paripesa have 2.50 odds.
Youssef En-Nesyri has been particularly superb during that period, bagging four goals in their last three home games, while he also scored in a recent 2-1 (after extra-time) defeat to Osasuna in the Copa del Rey. Today is another La Liga game on home soil and we can definitely see the forward replicating his previous performances. Goals don’t seem to be a problem for him and with the defense facing him today he will score. Bet9ja have 2.50 odds while Paripesa have 2.87 odds.
Romelu Lukaku scored the winner against Porto and has netted in each of his four previous SA H2Hs against today’s opponents. Romelu Lukaku has had a frustrating campaign littered with injury issues and inconsistent form, however, the Belgian front-man was Inter’s match-winner against Porto in midweek and the 29-year-old’s effort was his second strike in as many games following last weekend’s goal against Udinese Bet9ja have 3.00 odds while Paripesa have 2.85 odds.
The young Ghanaian attacking midfielder has been transformed since John Heitinga took over the coaching duties. He has pushed himself to second place in the team’s top scorer rankings with nine goals, and also has one assist on the record. With consecutive goals in consecutive matches for the club in all competitions, he seems to be a serious contender for the goalscorer today. Bet9ja have 2.80 odds while Paripesa have 2.75 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.
