The international break is over and players are back with their clubs prepared to earn their paychecks. Manchester United take a trip to Anfield on Saturday in the Premier League in what is possibly the biggest match of the weekend.
Liverpool will hope to return back and prove a point after potentially dropping points in their last two games as they welcome in-form Red Devils, while City host Stoke City.
Take a look at our top tips for today as we provide you insightful prediction with 80% positive outcome, to play safe you can actually guide any game if you feel otherwise but what’s the point if you can’t risk it to take the biscuit. Good Luck
Ajax vs Sparta Rotterdam
These two sides have met over 100 times in their history, and as you might expect its Ajax who has dominated this fixture to date, picking up 6 wins, 21 draws, and just 23 defeats against Sparta Rotterdam.
Ajax has won four of their last six matches, three of which have been accompanied by a clean sheet. Sparta Rotterdam has lost all of their last four games, and on three of those occasions, they have failed to score.
Prediction: Ajax win
Liverpool vs Manchester United
Since Jose Mourinho took charge of Manchester United ahead of 2016-17; these two clubs have won the exact same number of points in the Premier League (88). Liverpool has scored 16 more goals (91 v 75) but has conceded 23 more (54 v 31).
Playing away against Liverpool will be a real challenge. Though Liverpool is not on their best form they still continue to score goals. I believe there is no way Liverpool should win this one considering the difference in form of both teams. Both teams will need to quickly build up their chemistry again after the international break and given the odds of Man United conceding a goal
Prediction: Home Win or draw
Manchester City vs Stoke City
Manchester City has kept a clean sheet in 70% of their competitive games this season, winning 90% of them in the process. They have won 75% of their last four league outings by at least a five-goal margin.
City will look to carry on their good form against Stoke to weekend after the international break
Prediction: City Win & Over 2.5
Crystal Palace vs Chelsea
It may only be seven games into the new Premier League season, but Crystal Palace looks destined for the relegation zone at the moment. They have set a few unwanted records already this season, Chelsea FC has won four and lost two of their last six meetings with Crystal Palace, keeping a clean sheet in three of these four wins.
Prediction: over 2.5
Watford vs Arsenal
The curse of the international break has struck again with mustafi missing the game with a torn ligament and could miss a month which could be a blow to the Gunners but it does give holding a chance to have a run in the side.
Watford has conceded at least three goals in 75% of their competitive home games this season, and in 75% of their last four hostings of Arsenal. Arsenal has scored three or more in 40% of their competitive games, winning 70% of them and winning 100% of their last four visits to Vicarage Road.
Prediction: over 2.5
Celtic vs Dundee United
Celtic’s incredible unbeaten run domestically has seen a couple of wobbles recently. Both St Johnstone and Hibernian have threatened to end that streak at Celtic Park in recent weeks, Celtic are undefeated in their last 47 league games. The Bohys have scored at least twice in 13 of their last 15 in the league, while Dundee is without a win in their last five away trips.
Prediction: Celtic Wins & under 3.5
Getafe vs Real Madrid
Real Madrid has made an unconvincing start to their title defence and they’ll be a bit wary of a Getafe side that gave Barcelona their toughest game so far a few weeks back.
Real Madrid has won the last seven meetings between the clubs. They scored over 2.5 goals in all of those games, and have won their last 12 away league games, scoring over 2.5 goals in 9 of those matches. There have been over 2.5 goals in 4 of Getafe’s last 5 matches.
Prediction: Madrid wins & Over 2.5
Atletico vs Barcelona
This is the biggest game of the season so far in La Liga, particularly you sense for Atletico Madrid. They simply can’t afford to lose it, if they are to consider themselves genuine title contenders.
Despite a couple of notable Champions League successes, Atleti’s recent league record against Barcelona is very poor. The Catalans have won their last 5 away games against Atleti in domestic competitions. Atlético de Madrid have not won in their last 14 La Liga games against Barcelona (D3 L11), their worst run without a win against them in the competition.
Barcelona have won their seven La Liga 17/18 games and may equal their best start in the competition (eight wins in 13/14)
Prediction: Barcelona win or draw
Bayern Munich vs Freiburg
Bayern Munich has conceded 7 goals in their last 3 matches. Bayern Munich has kept a clean sheet in just 2 of their last 7 home matches. Only one of the last nine meetings between Bayern and Freiburg had over 4.5 goals scored.
Bayern Munich won 4-1 at home to Freiburg when the two sides last met in May this year. Bayern has won 15 of the 17 matches at home to Freiburg.
Prediction: Bayern Wins & over 2.5
Juventus vs Lazio
With Dybala leading the way, Juve hasn’t been shy in terms of goals. They’ve been scoring plenty, hitting at least two in six of their last seven at home. They’ve scored two or more in 23 of their last 27 home league games, and we’re backing them to do the same again here
Juve has won 37 of their last 38 home league games. Juventus won at home to all of the top eight last season, with 67% of their wins at homecoming by at least two goals, and have won 10 of the last 11 meetings between these two sides.
Prediction: Over 2.5
Dijon vs PSG
PSG will be expecting to comfortably beat Dijon when they visit the relegation-threatened side this weekend in Ligue 1. The visitors are in excellent form in both domestic and European competition so far in 2017/18 and few would bet against them recording another three points here.
In six previous meetings, Dijon has won once and PSG the other five, and PSG have scored a huge 27 goals from their eight Ligue 1 games this season.
Prediction: PSG win & over 2.5
Tottenham vs Bournemouth
Tottenham fans have been dreading the move to Wembley after their shambolic performances there in the Champions League last season, and so far their fears are proving to be well founded
Tottenham have conceded in 67% of their Premier League games at Wembley, whilst Bournemouth has scored in 69% of their last 13 away days. The visitors have only lost by more than a two-goal margin in 13% of their league games this season, and have won four and drawn one of their five meetings with Bournemouth.
Prediction: Tottenham wins
Roma vs Napoli
With Napoli flying, and Dries Mertens leading the way, it’s hard to argue with the visitors. Roma can be confident of a goal after scoring in their last 27 home league games, but Napoli should overpower them in this game.
Napoli’s last 11 games have seen over 2.5 goals scored. Roma won all but three home games last season, slipping up to three of their fellow top five sides. The two encounters between these sides last season saw the away team come out on top.
Prediction: over 1.5
