The weekend returns after a thrilling midweek filled with fixtures from club giants across Europe. The weekend brings a lot of games and fixtures with high scoring potentials and we have them included today
We have carefully selected the best options for today’s game below.
Can Barcelona overcome their Champions League misery when they travel to take on Valencia on Saturday? Valencia and Barcelona lock horns at the Estadio de Mestalla in La Liga on Saturday, October 29th. Barcelona was dumped out of the Champions League in midweek when they were swatted aside with ease by Bayern Munich, though Xavi’s charges have found life easier in La Liga where they have recorded nine victories in their first 11 games. We expect Barca to shake off their continental disappointment to beat a Valencia outfit that has managed to win just twice in their last seven attempts in Spain. Bet9ja have 1.60 odds, Paripesa have 1.62 odds and 1xBet have 1.62 odds.
Lecce has lost their last four Serie A games, and this weekend they welcome Juventus, who are trying to win their third straight league game after triumphs over Torino and Empoli. Despite Juventus’ poor season performance, we are still picking the visitors to win this game. Juventus has won three of their previous six games against Lecce while only losing once. Juventus also won 4-0 the last time the two teams faced off in 2020. Lecce has gone winless in their last four league games, losing twice in that span, while Juventus has won their last two Serie A games, scoring five goals while allowing none. Bet9ja have 1.78 odds, Paripesa have 1.83 odds and 1xBet have 1.83 odds.
This weekend, Graham Potter returns to the Am Ex to get his Chelsea team into the top four of the Premier League. The Seagulls faithful would love nothing more than for Brighton to defeat Potter’s Chelsea team this weekend. Brighton currently has a new manager, but they have yet to record a victory under his guidance. In their last ten competitive encounters with Brighton, Chelsea has won six and drawn four of those games. Since Graham Potter was removed, the Seagulls have lost three of their last five games and haven’t won any of them. Chelsea has won four and drew two of its previous six games across all competitions. This is a major reason why we have chosen him here today Bet9ja have 2.54 odds, Paripesa have 2.50 odds and 1xBet have 2.50 odds.
Sevilla and Rayo Vallecano go head-to-head for three points at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán in La Liga on Saturday, October 29th. Sevilla gave their confidence a much-needed lift on Tuesday evening when they beat Danish side Copenhagen 3-0 in the Champions League and with some of the gloom lifted from the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, another victory could be in the offing against Rayo Vallecano. The visitors can be formidable on their day, though that day never seems to come when they are on the road and Rayo has taken just one point from the last 12 on offer on their travels. Sevilla eased to a 3-0 win in the corresponding fixture last term and while Saturday’s game isn’t likely to be quite so comfortable, it’s still worth siding with the hosts. Bet9ja have 1.97 odds, Paripesa have 2.05 odds and 1xBet have 2.05 odds.
At Utrecht, Sparta’s strong run of form came to an end, and often the hardest thing is to start a new one. For the Rotterdam team in particular, who has been remarkably consistent this season. After dropping the first two games, Sparta has been in fantastic form at home, winning four straight games. Although Fortuna has gone unbeaten in their past three away games, they have only recorded one victory, a victory over Vitesse three weeks ago. For the past two seasons, each team has won a game. It’s important to note that the teams won both home games last season and away games the season before. Bet9ja have 2.03 odds, Paripesa have 2.01 odds and 1xBet have 2.01 odds.
Leicester’s Premier League form has picked up in recent weeks, so much so, that they do not sit outside of the relegation places heading into this weekend’s latest round of fixtures. However, despite winning their last two league games comfortably, the Foxes play host to title-challenging Manchester City in Saturday’s early kick-off and even though Haaland is a slight doubt due to an ankle injury, Pep’s men are the big favorites to win the game. We’ve backed at least 4-goals to be scored in Saturday’s clash as two of the last four league meetings between Leicester and Manchester City have ended with at least 7-goals being scored, those being a 6-3 win for Manchester City and a 5-2 win for Leicester. Three of the host’s last six outings have also produced 4 or more goals while three of Manchester City’s last six matches in all competitions have witnessed at least four goals scored, adding further weight to our prediction. Bet9ja have 1.40 odds, Paripesa have 1.42 odds and 1xBet have 1.42 odds.
Only one point and three positions separate Crystal Palace from their weekend opponents Southampton in the Premier League standings, therefore we anticipate a tight game between the two teams at Selhurst Park. The Eagles performed their last time out, but this weekend they will welcome Doucoure back to the center of their midfield as the Saints attempt to extend their winning streak to four games. At least three goals have been scored in each of the last three encounters between these two clubs, including Crystal Palace’s 2-1 victory at Southampton in April. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in four of Crystal Palace’s previous five league games, while Southampton most recently fell to Manchester City 4-0 on the road. Bet9ja have 2.00 odds, Paripesa have 2.10 odds and 1xBet have 2.10 odds.
After beating Volendam last week, Heerenveen moved into the top seven of the Eredivisie, and they’ll want to be even better this weekend against a very strong Utrecht team. Heerenveen is one of the Eredivisie teams with the lowest goal totals this season, but in their head-to-head matchups with Utrecht, it appears like they play interesting games with plenty of scoring opportunities practically every week. Utrecht won both games last season with identical final scores of 2-1. Even though Heerenveen has only had more than two goals in five of their eleven games this season, their history with Utrecht speaks for itself. Only twice in the last ten games’ results have there been fewer than three goals. Bet9ja have 1.75 odds, Paripesa have 1.84 odds and 1xBet have 1.84 odds.
The Sassuolo team Napoli destroyed 6-1 earlier this year will be the opponent as they look to extend their lead at the top of the Serie A standings. Sassuolo is in the top part of the standings, but they will have tough competition this weekend as they play one of the leading contenders for the championship this year. In their last six league encounters, Napoli has prevailed in three of those games against Sassuolo, and four of those games included more than 2.5 goals. The hosts have scored at least four goals in their past six games and are now riding a 12-game winning streak overall. Five of Sassuolo’s last six matches have also produced over 2.5 goals and the visitors have lost three of those games. Bet9ja have 1.44 odds, Paripesa have 1.43 odds and 1xBet have 1.43 odds.
The last meeting between these clubs in Paris was a close contest, and PSG will be out to avenge their defeat from the previous year. When it comes to PSG, scoring goals is as commonplace as Sunday dinner, therefore it’s pretty astonishing to see Troyes at the top of the standings for over 3.5 games. Eight of Troyes’ twelve games included more than three goals. PSG had only three games that were “over,” which is remarkable considering where they are in the rankings. However, their most recent meeting ended in a 2-2 draw, and some supporters still recall the 2016 contest, which PSG dominated 9-0. The visitors bring a lot of excitement into their games which are usually high-scoring affairs, so something similar can be expected this time around. Bet9ja have 1.25 odds, Paripesa have 1.23 odds and 1xBet have 1.23 odds.
Osimhen isn’t the most prolific of strikers in Serie A but he is consistent. Right now, the Nigerian international has scored three goals in his last four matches for Napoli in league and cup and we’re backing the 23-year-old to score his 5th league goal of the campaign against a leaky Sassuolo defense this Saturday. The forward has had his struggles with injuries this season and in the past but looks to be back fully and has shown impressive performances since his return from the sidelines. It is hard to ignore him and how good he is when he plays for this Napoli team. Bet9ja have 1.75 odds while Paripesa have 1.91 odds.
Martinez top scores for Inter Milan this season with 6-goals in Serie A alone, so you can already see why we’re backing the Argentine forward to score again on Saturday. Martinez was in great form last time against Fiorentina, scoring twice, and has taken over as the main striker at the club during Lukaku’s injury. We would be selecting him here purely on his incredible form in the Serie A this season and the fact that his opponents do not stand a chance of keeping him from scoring. Bet9ja have 1.90 odds while Paripesa have 2.05 odds.
The French forward and superstar lit up the Champions League in midweek with very impressive performances bagging two goals and two assists in their demolition of Maccabi. He has been consistent also in the Ligue 1 topping the goalscoring charts with 10 goals in twelve matches this season. He would relish playing against this Troyes side and we can see him scoring multiple goals. Bet9ja have 1.65 odds while Paripesa have 1.61 odds.
Firmino has enjoyed this season with Liverpool, scoring 6-goals in the Premier League which is twice as many as Salah has managed. We’re backing the Brazilian international to score against a leaky Leeds defense this weekend, helping to guide Liverpool to a much-needed victory. His performances this season have received praise from both fans and teammates as he has stepped up in the absence of many players due to injuries. Bet9ja have 2.15 odds while Paripesa have 2.37 odds.
Exciting youngster Jamal Musiala has become a regular provider of goals for Bayern Munich and the 19-year-old has plundered an impressive six goals in just ten Bundesliga appearances this term, making him the club’s leading scorer domestically. Musiala’s knack for finding space in the box should come in handy for the champions against Mainz again this weekend and the red-hot wonderkid is available at a generous price to score a goal anytime. Bet9ja have 2.60 odds while Paripesa have 2.59 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.
