The League action comes to an end with the rest of the league matches completed after an eventful weekend.
In the domestic scene, a lot of drama remains on the cards, and we bring you the likely betting tips and predictions to go with all of the day’s action.
PSG have made such a fast start to Ligue 1 that it feels like they might as well be awarded the title now. PSG vs Monaco might be a big fixture in Ligue 1 but this game will do little to change people’s minds about the competitiveness of the French top flight – at least that’s our view as we back PSG to win today’s fixture. PSG have been flying in the early part of the season collecting maximum points from their opening three games but what’s more notable is the way they’re winning games; they’ve racked up a combined scoreline of 17-3. Combine that with Monaco’s form of playing three, and won one and you’ll start to see where we’re coming from. Last time out Monaco was thumped 4-1 by Lens. Bet9ja have 1.19 odds, Paripesa have 1.22 odds and 1xBet have 1.22 odds.
Napoli has won both of their opening two matches while Fiorentina is also unbeaten so far having secured one draw and one win. Napoli has won three of their last four league meetings with Fiorentina, and we’re backing the visitors to secure another 3pts on Sunday. Fiorentina was busy in mid-week qualifying for the Conference League, so we’re expecting the hosts to show some tired legs in the latter stages of this weekend’s match. Napoli has already claimed a 5-2 win at Verona and a 4-0 win over Monza and confidence looks high in the visitors’ camp right now. Bet9ja have 2.16 odds, Paripesa have 2.17 odds and 1xBet have 2.17 odds.
Tottenham looks to keep their unbeaten start to the new Premier League season going when they make the trip to The City Ground on Sunday. The newly-promoted hosts have made a positive start to the season which you would expect given all the money they have spent on new players. We’re backing an away win this weekend as we feel that Tottenham’s class will be enough to see them through to victory, but it won’t be easy. Spurs have won four of their last five encounters with Nottingham Forest, the last of which arrived in 2014. Forest lost their opening game of the season away at Newcastle and was lucky to get a point from their trip to Goodison Park, which doesn’t bode well ahead of a tough home game against a Champion League side like Tottenham. Bet9ja have 1.48 odds, Paripesa have 1.51 odds and 1xBet have 1.51 odds.
Espanyol host Real Madrid at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez in La Liga today. Real Madrid is targeting a third victory in a row when they visit Espanyol. Real Madrid has the misfortune of starting their La Liga title defense with three straight-away assignments, but having won the first two at Almeria and Celta Vigo, a third victory on the road is in the offing at Espanyol. This should be smooth sailing for the Los Blancos as they did last season, the odds are highly in their favor which is why we have them chosen here. Bet9ja have 1.47 odds, Paripesa have 1.47 odds and 1xBet have 1.47 odds.
Ajax has won each of their opening three league games and sits top of the Eredivisie table heading into the latest round of fixtures in the Netherlands’ top flight. Hosts Utrecht is yet to win a game in the league this season, picking up two draws and suffering one defeat, a form that does not bode well ahead of a tricky game against the league champions. Ajax has won four of their last six games against Utrecht in all competitions. Utrecht suffered a 3-2 defeat against Emmen last time out and failed to score at home against Cambuur before that while Ajax managed to keep a clean sheet in their last game away at Sparta Rotterdam and have won all three of their league games so far, so you can see why we’re backing the visitors to win. Bet9ja have 1.45 odds, Paripesa have 1.45 odds and 1xBet have 1.45 odds.
Aston Villa goes in search of back-to-back home wins when they take on West Ham in the Premier League this weekend. The Hammers sit bottom of the table and are the only side left in the Premier League yet to secure a single point this season. At least three goals have been scored in each of the last four meetings between Aston Villa and West Ham in the Premier League, and we’re expecting more of the same on Sunday. Over 2.5 goals have also been scored in five of the home side’s last six matches, so you can see just why we’re expecting the goals to flow this weekend. Bet9ja have 1.86 odds, Paripesa have 1.94 odds and 1xBet have 1.94 odds.
Werder Bremen meet Eintracht Frankfurt at the wohninvest WESERSTADION in the Bundesliga today. It already looks as though Werder Bremen will be an exciting addition to the Bundesliga and their fixtures in the German top-flight so far have been packed to bursting with incidents. Their matches have averaged a whopping 4.33 goals per 90 minutes so far and more net-shredding action could be on the menu when Werder takes on Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday. An open contest is anticipated at the who invest WESERSTADION and bettors are advised to pursue a stake on over 2.5 goals again. Bet9ja have 1.62 odds, Peripesa have 1.70 odds and 1xBet have 1.70 odds.
PSG has been included back into the selections for obvious reasons, our next prediction for this match sees us back over 2.5 goals. PSG are the main reason for that tip with them having seen a total of 32 goals across their last five games. Each of those games has gone over 2.5 goals in their own right but the game average of xxx is pretty damn bonkers too. As for Monaco, they’ve seen two of their last three games go over 3.5 goals to prove they’re not exactly shy of being open and expansive. Bet9ja have 1.24 odds, Paripesa have 1.24 odds and 1xBet have 1.24 odds.
Fiorentina had one eye on their Conference League qualifier against Twente when they made the trip to Empoli last weekend. Napoli put in a four-star performance at home to newly-promoted Monza last time out. Kvaratskhelia opened the scoring in the 35th minute and first-half stoppage-time, and Osimhen added a second goal. Four of the last five meetings between these two clubs in all competitions have ended with at least three goals being scored. Over 2.5 goals have also been produced in four of Fiorentina’s and four of Napoli’s last six fixtures, so you can see just why we’re expecting the goals to flow on Sunday. Bet9ja have 1.70 odds, Paripesa have 1.76 odds and 1xBet have 1.76 odds.
Both of these sides are struggling for consistency in this early period. We’ve already established that Montpellier has allowed three goals per game this season; it’s also fair to point out that they’ve scored their fair share of goals too. Olivier Dall’Oglio’s men have scored six times in three league games, averaging two goals per game. Because of the way they score and concede, most of Montpellier’s games have been high-scoring; their last four games have all gone above the 2.5 goal mark, with just over five games scored on average in that stretch. Likewise, in four of the last five meetings, Brest and Montpellier saw at least three goals scored; for these reasons, we are predicting a high-scoring game. Bet9ja have 1.72 odds, Paripesa have 1.80 odds and 1xBet have 1.80 odds.
Harry Kane is often criticized for his slow start to the season but the Tottenham captain has already notched two important goals this season, including the winner last time out against Wolves. Kane looks back to his very best in a Tottenham shirt these days and we’re backing England’s captain to find the back of the net once again this weekend against Nottingham Forest. Bet9ja have 2.10 odds while Paripesa have 2.00 odds.
Legendary French forward Karim Benzema opened his account for the new La Liga season with an effort from the penalty spot against Celta Vigo last week and the veteran striker is worth backing to follow that strike up with another against Espanyol. The ever-dependable Benzema scored both home and away against Espanyol the last term and he knows how to punish the Periquitos’s defense. As such, the Frenchman is an outstanding candidate to bet in the anytime scorer stakes on Sunday. Bet9ja have 1.90 odds while Paripesa have 1.79 odds.
Mbappe would be facing his former side Monaco today as he hopes to continue his great goalscoring run and extend it to three games. PSG’s Kylian Mbappe, who’s scored four goals across his last two Ligue 1 matches, has averaged one goal per game across his nine league appearances against his former club. He would undoubtedly be recorded on this day’s scoresheet. Bet9ja have 1.55 odds while Paripesa have 1.49 odds.
After a disappointing stint with Tottenham in the Premier League, Steven Bergwijn returned to the Netherlands this summer. You can see why we’re backing the pacy forward to score against Utrecht this weekend after the Dutch international has looked fantastic since joining Ajax, scoring four goals in the first three matches of the new season. Bet9ja have 3.00 odds while Paripesa have 2.05 odds.
Gakpo has started the new Eredivisie season brightly, netting 2-goals in two starts. The Dutch forward scored 12 goals in the league last season and has been linked with a move to the Premier League with Arsenal and Man Utd due to his impressive performances, but for now, he remains PSV’s star player. We’re betting on Gakpo to score against Excelsior this weekend and continue his stellar recent run of goal-scoring performances. Bet9ja have 2.00 odds while Paripesa have 1.91 odds.
