  1. Nice have started the season dreadfully and now face Napoli in a qualifier for the Champions League group stages. It does not get much harder for Lucien Favres side. They will be hoping that Napoli will be slightly off the pace as they have not played a competitive match since May. Top prediction for this match: Over 2,5 (1,60 in bet365) More information:
  2. Newcastle will welcome Tottenham to St. James Park for their first Premier League match since the 2015/16 season. Their final game that campaign was actually against Spurs, where they romped to a 5-1 win that saw Mauricio Pochettino side end the campaign in 3rd. Spurs have a respectable record at St. James Park losing only two of their last six visits to Newcastle and winning two of their last three trips to the north-east. Top prediction for this match: Tottenham to WIN (1,70 in bet365) More information:
  3. Bolton bounced back to the Championship at the first attempt, arresting the slump down the pyramid that followed their relegation from the Premier League in 2012. While they have strengthened their squad with nine signings, Bolton could give the bulk of the side that won promotion from League One the chance to impress on opening day. Top prediction for this match: Under 2,5 (1,67 in bet365) More information:
  4. Lyon's massive overhaul this summer has given many supporters of the club some pause, but even with a raft of new players, a match against Strasbourg at home has to be considered a banker win. Summer signings Marcal, Marcelo, Traoré and Diaz should all be regular starters, based on pre-season. Top prediction for this match: Over 2,5 More information:
  5. Aberdeen go into this match full of confidence after they completed their pre-season campaign undefeated and in the goals. The Dandies have scored in each of their last 11 outings and with 10 goals coming from their pre-season friendlies, their strikers should hold the confidence required going into the new campaign. It's not as if they have only performed in friendlies either, as they overcame a difficult tie against Siroki Brijeg with a 3-1 aggregate win. Whilst their attack has been on form, their defence leaves a little to be desired. Just one clean sheet in their previous five matches shows that they can be vulnerable and this will give plenty of reason for encouragement to Thursday's hosts. Top prediction for this match: DRAW or Aberdeen to WIN (1,80 in bet365) More information:
  6. Spartak vs Krasnodar Current champions Spartak Moscow are having a slow start to the season having picked up two points from their opening two matches so far. Massimo Carrera promted some changes in the starting XI last time out and things didn't work as planned, so he needs now to rethink his options ahead of Monday's extremely difficult match against FC Krasnodar. Luiz Adriano is still struggling with a muscle injury and is a doubt for Monday's match against FC Krasnodar. Top prediction for this match: Spartak to WIN More information here:
  7. 29.07.2017 Rubin vs Tula Two consecutive defeats is certainly not how Kurban Berdyev expected to start the season on his second managerial stint for Rubin Kazan. A win is mandatory against Arsenal Tula this weekend and, despite their poor start to the season, the home side are slight favourites to get the three points here. Top prediction for this match: Rubin to WIN More information here:
  8. One of the most pleasant surprises in Europa League qualifiers so far Botev Plovdiv will try to cause another upset in the 3rd round but the task is far away from being an easy one. Maritimo from Primeira Liga have been more or less standard participants of Europa League group stages and of course all experts have marked them as big favorites to eliminate squad from Plovdiv. Top prediction for this match: Under 2,5 More information here:
  9. Strømsgodset are the most underperforming team in the league by some distance, and manager Tor Ole Skullerud must surely be under threat at this point. They had been limping along for a while, showing just enough promise to not plunge into full crisis, but last weekend against Lillestrøm they were particularly poor. Facing newly promoted Kristiansund could then be seen as a bit of a blessing, but it might not be. The club from the West Coast has shown great resilience in recent weeks, battering Stabæk 4-1 away and holding Rosenborg to an unlikely 3-3 draw. For all their limitations, Kristiansund have now just lost twice in their last ten games in the league. Godset should be a much better team than Kristiansund, but right now they aren’t and the visitors will feel they have every chance of getting something from this.

  10. Questions are being asked of Rosenborg again after they threw away a seemingly safe 2-0 lead against Kristiansund in spectacular fashion on Monday. Nicklas Bendtner’s late equaliser salvaged a 3-3 draw, but it still wasn’t the result they would have expected. After an impressive start to the season Sandefjord are having a little more of a rough go at it now, with just one win in their last seven league games. That win did however come against high-flying Sarpsborg, proving that Lars Bohinen’s newly promoted team can cause trouble for anyone in this league on a good day. That being said, one does rather suspect that Rosenborg will find some way of eeking out a result here, even if things haven’t quite been going their way recently. It could be tighter than the gulf in quality between the two sides would suggest, though. Top prediction for this match: Over 2,5 (1,48 in bet365) More PREVIEWS:
  11. I hope there is no more explosions!!! Atletico Madrid are looking to progress to the semi-finals of the Champions League for the third time in the last four years, while Leicester are making their first ever appearance at this stage of the competition. Diego Simeone is expected to be without Tiago, Augusto Fernandez, Miguel Angel Moya and Sime Vrsaljko, while Kevin Gameiro and Nicolas Gaitan remain doubts. This is the first meeting between the sides since the 1997/98 UEFA Cup first round and Atletico are expected to come out on top once again here. However, while Atletico have never lost at home to English sides, they have only won one of their last five matches on home soil to English opposition. Leicester really have nothing to lose against Atletico but will find it hard to even get on the scoreboard in Madrid. Diego Simeone’s side have kept clean sheets in 17 of their last 21 home matches in the Champions League! Craig Shakespeare made changes to the side that lost 4-2 to Everton on Sunday with a view to this match and the likes of Danny Simpson, Wilfred Ndidi and Riyad Mahrez expected to return to the starting XI.

  12. Borussia Dortmund will hope to quickly move on from the disappointing 4-1 loss at Bayern Munich at the weekend with the welcome of Monaco. On home turf, however, they have been formidible this term, failing to win on just four occasions in all competitions. Thomas Tuchel is without injured duo Mario Gotze for the welcome of Monaco, but Marco Reus is back in training and could feature. Monaco bounced back from their Coupe de la Ligue final loss to PSG with back-to-back wins. That being said, they have failed to win their last three away Champions League outings, but are more than capable of hitting the back of the net. Tiemoue Bakayoko is suspended for Monaco, but Kamil Glik returns from a ban and is set to start at the heart of the defence. This game promises goals and Dortmund should secure victory in what is set to be an entertaining encounter. Top prediction for this match: Dortmund to WIN (1,65 in bet365) More PREVIEWS:
  13. Lille gave Monaco all they could handle, even with 10 men, in midweek but their exertions and travel, combined with such a quick turnaround, are unlikely to work in their favour in this encounter. Adama Soumaoro’s season is over after suffering an Achilles injury against Monaco in the Coupe de France midweek. Yassine Benzia, Sebastien Corchia and Franck Beria are all doubts through injury. Mario Balotelli is yet to score on the road in Ligue 1 this season. Remi Walter has made his return and that should allow Nice to revert to their preferred 4-3-3 system. With Walter back in the side, Valentin Eysseric and Younes Belhanda should play wide on the right and left, respectively, with Mario Balotelli keeping his place after scoring from the spot and adding an assist last week. Top prediction for this match: DRAW or Nice to WIN (1,57 in bet365) More PREVIEWS:
  14. Valencia are unbeaten in their last three home games in La Liga after beating Leganes, drawing with Sporting Gijon and beating Deportivo. Eliaquim Mangala returns from suspension to feature at centre-back, with Aymen Abdennour returning to playing second fiddle on the bench. The hosts are now 11 points above the relegation zone, which puts any doubts surroundings them being sucked into the battle for survival to rest. Celta have won four of their last five competitive games, with goals proving to not be an issue despite John Guidetti recently picking up a fairly long-term injury. Hugo Mallo is still carrying a knock, which should mean that Facundo Roncaglia continues to get a look-in at right-back for now.

  15. After Chelsea’s defeat at the weekend, this is now a significant game in the title race, even if victory would unlikely be enough to see City put real pressure on top spot. The likes of Courtois, Hazard and Costa were all fit enough to start at the weekend, with Victor Moses the only player to miss out with a calf injury that will probably keep him out once more. Three consecutive draws have all but quashed the visitors chances of catching their hosts on Wednesday, and that would certainly be the case if they are unable to inflict back-to-back defeats on Conte’s side. Ilkay Gundogan and Gabriel Jesus remain in the treatment room, with Bacary Sagna also likely to miss out once more. Despite the result at the weekend Chelsea played well and they will surely take their chances in a bid to put things right in such a big game. They’re certainly not breathing quite so easy ahead of this one though, and the visitors will look to exploit any nerves. Top prediction for this match: Over 2,5 (1,73 in bet365) More PREVIEWS:
