Hi gang! Club football is back, and I’m looking at the biggest matches from Friday to Sunday. Let’s see whether we can keep our winning form from the international break!
Lyon v Saint-Etienne – Friday 23 November – Ligue 1 – BET HERE
What a derby we have here. Lyon and Saint-Etienne are only separated by a point in the Ligue 1 table, although Lyon are in slightly better form. They have won three of their past four league games, while Saint-Etienne have only won one of their six away matches this season. Both teams have scored in Lyon’s last five games and I expect the same here, and I fancy a Home Win.
Match Tip: Both Teams to Score (1.58)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Lyon 2 v 1 Saint Etienne
Leganes v Alaves – Friday 23 November – La Liga – BET HERE
This is turning into a great season for Alaves, who are fourth and could go top with a win. They’ve won four of their last five league games and proved that international breaks won’t slow them down when they beat Celta Vigo after the last round. Even though Leganes have beaten Barcelona and drawn with Atletico lately, they’re still in the relegation zone. I like the look of an Away Win.
Match Tip: Double Chance Alaves (1.65)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Leganes 1 v 2 Alaves
Tottenham v Chelsea – Saturday 24 November – Premier League – BET HERE
Tottenham have won nine and lost three league games this season, but two of those defeats came to teams above them in the standings. Chelsea are the other side looking down on Spurs in the table and are unbeaten in all competitions this season. Both teams have scored in four of these sides’ last five meetings, and I expect the same here. I’ll back a Draw too, since both teams are in form.
Match Tip: Both Teams to Score (1.58)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Tottenham 1 v 1 Chelsea
Atletico Madrid v Barcelona – Saturday 24 November – La Liga – BET HERE
These teams are the favourites for the title, so the result could have huge consequences. Atletico are third at the start of weekend and have won four of their last five games in all competitions. Barcelona are top of the league, although they were beaten by Real Betis last time out. Even though Atletico have lost just three times at the Wanda Metropolitano since they moved last season, they have only won one of their last 15 games against Barcelona. I’m going for an Away Win.
Match Tip: Both Teams to Score (1.75)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Atletico Madrid 1 v 2 Barcelona
River Plate v Boca Juniors – Saturday 24 November – Copa Libertadores – BET HERE
River came from behind twice in the first leg to secure a 2-2 draw which puts them in a great position, especially considering they beat Boca in their three previous meetings. They have won seven of their past ten home games, while their rivals are seeking a first Copa trophy since 2007. However, they have only won two of their last ten away games, so I think River will be triumphant.
Match Tip: River Plate Win (2.05)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: River Plate 2 v 0 Boca Juniors
Bournemouth v Arsenal – Sunday 25 November – Premier League – BET HERE
This is a tough test for Arsenal, who lost 2-1 here last season and have drawn four of their last five matches in all competitions, although they are now unbeaten in 16 games. I’m looking at Both Teams to Score here as it’s happened in nine of the Gunners’ 12 league games this season, while Bournemouth have lost their last two games by a 2-1 score line. I’m going for the same this time.
Match Tip: Both Teams to Score (1.45)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Bournemouth 1 v 2 Arsenal
Lazio v AC Milan – Sunday 25 November – Serie A – BET HERE
These teams’ recent records are almost identical! They have both won six and lost three of their past ten games and have struggled against top teams this season. Lazio have won four of their six home league games but have lost to Napoli and Inter, who have also beaten AC Milan. The suspension of Gonzalo Higuain swings this for me, and I’m backing a Home Win.
Match Tip: Both Teams to Score (1.70)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Lazio 2 v 1 AC Milan
