  1. West Ham vs Chelsea West Ham opened the 2023/24 season with a trip to Bournemouth, from which they returned home with a 1-1 draw. Despite being close to a victory, they conceded in the last ten minutes of the match but booked a positive start. The Hammers won't want to repeat the previous campaign, where they struggled for survival until the final rounds. They aim for the top-half finish this time, but they will need to do that without Declan Rice, who moved to Arsenal. Gianluca Scamacca also left the club, but West Ham brought James Ward-Prowse and Edson Álvarez. David Moyes's team will face the first tough challenge in the current season, as they'll face the local rival, who has big ambitions this time. Like their opponents, Chelsea seeks improvement after a disappointing campaign. They opened the season with a 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Stamford Bridge with an exciting clash. Despite trailing 1-0 after 18 minutes into the game, Axel Disasi scored on his debut to level the score before halftime. Indeed, the Blues have spent a lot of money this summer (again), but they also reconstructed their squad and sold several players. Chelsea also had a decent pre-season, and they are confident enough to return home from this outing with all three points. We'll see if Mauricio Pochettino's side is capable of accomplishing that at London Stadium. Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction Local derbies are never easy to predict, and we expect a very exciting match. However, we believe the visitors are a bit closer to victory, and we are going to back them. Goals Market Prediction Neither team has been tight in defense lately, and we anticipate another efficient match. The crowd at London Stadium should see at least a goal in each net on Sunday evening. Chelsea to Win @ 2.12 BTTS Yes @ 1.73 Correct score 1:2 @ 8.90
  2. Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United Tottenham couldn't do more than picking up a point away to Brentford in the opening match of the season. Despite an early lead, the Bees managed to turn things around, but Emerson Royal equalized just before halftime. The Spurs continued their good form in front of the opponents' net from the pre-season, but defense remains the biggest problem for Ange Postecoglou. However, it will be interesting to see how Tottenham will deal with Kane's departure. One of the longest transfer sagas this summer resulted in Kane's move to Bayern Munich. Now, the Spurs should react on the market in search of a decent replacement for a great forward. In the meantime, they had a challenging task this weekend against the Red Devils. Manchester United kicked off the campaign with a narrow 1-0 win over Wolves at Old Trafford. The visitors were not without a chance to remain undefeated, but Raphael Varane brought all three points to the Red Devils. Erik ten Hag's side aims for the top-four finish again, and Man Utd has been active on the transfer market. Although David de Gea left the club, the Red Devils have brought André Onana as a replacement. We'll also see Mason Mount and Rasmus Højlund in action at Old Trafford. Nevertheless, we will see how much Man Utd can do at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction We expect a close match that can easily go either way. Manchester United has been more successful in their recent h2h clashes, but we see a draw as the most realistic outcome of this match. Goals Market Prediction The BTTS Yes bet cashed three times on the last four occasions at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. This trend should continue on Saturday evening, and neither team should keep its net intact. Draw @ 3.83 BTTS Yes @ 1.50 Correct score 1:1 @ 7.60
  3. Manchester City vs Newcastle United Man City heads to this match after lifting the UEFA Super Cup trophy on Wednesday evening. Unlike their Community Shield match, the Citizens had more luck in the penalty shootout. The defending champions have successfully started the Premier League campaign, beating Burnley on the road in their season-opener. Although they kept a clean sheet against the newly-promoted team, Manchester City still has slight issues in defense. A much stronger opponent is ahead of them this time, but the Citizens want to continue their winning run. Kevin de Bruyne will miss this game due to an injury, while Bernardo Silva is questionable. Newcastle United enjoyed a strong start to the new campaign by beating Aston Villa 5-1 at St. James’ Park. Thanks to this confident display, the Magpies continued their great unbeatable run that started during the pre-season. Sandro Tonali needed only 6 minutes to score on his debut, while Alexander Isak scored a brace. Newcastle United has big ambitions again, as they want to repeat the last season’s success and finish in the top-four zone. Their confidence is high, but we’ll see how ready they are to face the defending champions on the road. Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction Newcastle United had more time to prepare for this match after Man City played a mid-week match in Greece. Although the hosts are favorites in this clash, we believe the Magpies are capable enough for the first major surprise in the Premier League 2023/24 season. Goals Market Prediction Five of their last seven h2h clashes went over a 2.5 market, and considering the current form of Saturday’s rivals, this trend should continue. Therefore, we expect to see at least three goals at Etihad Stadium. Newcastle United AH +0.5 @ 2.30 Over 2.5 FT @ 1.75 Correct score 2:2 @ 16.50
  4. Werder Bremen vs Bayern Munich Werder finished the previous campaign in 13th place and three points clear from the relegation zone. Nevertheless, they didn't worry about survival much since a poor streak saw them dripping to the bottom half of the table. Their goal in the upcoming competition is to stay safe in the middle of the table and secure their place in the German top flight. Werder hasn't been too active on the market this summer, but they brought two promising players. Their midfield will be strengthened with Naby Keïta, who joined Werder from Liverpool in a free transfer, and Senne Lynen, who came to Weserstadion from Union SG in a €2 million deal. A couple of players went in the opposite direction, including Niklas Schmidt and Fabio Chiarodia, who joined Toulouse and Borussia Monchengladbach, respectively. It is going to be a tough challenge for the home side, but they hope they can surprise the rivals. The Bavarians retained the title in a mindblowing finish of the season, with Borussia Dortmund having a match ball for the trophy. Nevertheless, BVB couldn't do more than a 2-2 draw against Mainz at home, while Jamal Musiala's 89th-minute winner away to Koln kept the trophy at Allianz Arena. However, this campaign didn't start well for Bayern. They were outclassed in the German Super Cup game against RB Leipzig, suffering a heavy 3-0 loss. Seems there's still much work for Thomas Tuchel to shape the team and define roles. On the other hand, Bayern ended the Harry Kane transfer saga successfully. Additionally, Min-jae Kim and Raphaël Guerreiro strengthened the backline, while Konrad Laimer joined from RB Leipzig. We'll see if the defending champions are set for a successful start to the new campaign. Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction Bayern is a favorite in this clash, but the bookies underestimated the hosts. The visitors still don't look too convincing, and Werder shouldn't lose this game by more than a goal. Goals Market Prediction Head-to-head clashes between these two teams have been very interesting, and this one shouldn't be much different. We think the crowd will enjoy an entertaining match where both teams should score at least once. Werder Bremen AH +1.75 @ 2.02 BTTS Yes @ 1.57 Correct score 1:2 @ 8.25
  5. Chelsea vs Liverpool The last season was the one to forget for Chelsea. The Blues finished in a disappointing 12th place, and they'll miss the continental action this time. Chelsea has been quite active on the transfer market again, and Mauricio Pochettino will have many new faces in the squad. However, the Blues have had many departures this time, as Kai Haverz, Mason Mount, N'Golo Kanté, César Azpilicueta, Mateo Kovacic, Christian Pulisic, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Edouard Mendy left the club. On the other hand, Chelsea brought Robert Sánchez, Lesley Ugochukwu, Nicolas Jackson, Axel Disasi, and Christopher Nkunku while having on target a couple more players. The Bles want to return to the top four, but they need to put much better displays than the last time out. Like their rivals, Liverpool also could not be satisfied with its campaign last season. The Reds finished 5th, four points behind Newcastle United. Therefore, Jurgen Klopp will lead his team in the Europa League this season and will try to book a Champions League ticket for the next campaign. Several Liverpool players headed to Saudi Arabia this summer, including Jordan Henderson, who lifted so many trophies as a captain lately. Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai are the new faces at Anfield, while Liverpool could break the British transfer fee record if they finalize the Moisés Caicedo deal. However, we'll see if this team is capable of challenging for the title this year. We might get the first glimpses after Sunday's clash. Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction This game can easily go either way, and it will be interesting to see the capabilities of these two teams. Therefore, we see a draw as the most realistic outcome on Sunday evening. Goals Market Prediction Although their recent h2h clashes didn't produce many goals, we expect a different story this time. Liverpool was very efficient during the pre-season, but they've also conceded too many goals. That's why both teams should be capable of scoring at Stamford Bridge. Draw @ 3.75 BTTS Yes @ 1.52 Correct score 2:2 @ 12.50
  6. Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid Bilbao enters the new campaign after missing the continental qualification last time out. After picking up one point in the final three rounds of the 2022/23 season, they let Osasuna take over the Europa Conference League quals spot. Ernesto Valverde can count almost on the same squad as in the previous season since Athletic hasn't been much active on the transfer market. Inigo Martinez left the club, while the home side fans hope that Aymeric Laporte will return to Estadio San Mames. The hosts have a tough task at the beginning of the season, but they will try to stay undefeated. Real Madrid has been one of the most interesting clubs to follow during the season break. Los Blancos enter the new era without their icon, Karim Benzema, who decided to join Al Ittihad from Saudi Arabia. Nevertheless, they decided to bring fresh forces in the likes of Jude Bellingham for the €103 million transfer fee and Arda Guler. Real Madrid managed to beat the fierce competition for the signing of the young Turkish international, which is projected as the next big thing in football. However, Los Blancos still haven't brought a decent replacement for Benzema, and Joselu remains their first choice in the final third. Moreover, Thibaut Courtois suffered a severe injury and will probably miss the entire season. That's why this will be a tricky match for the last season's runners-up, but they hope to get all three points. Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction Real Madrid has been quite successful in Bilbao over the past few seasons, as they lost at Estadio San Mames last time in 2015. However, Athletic can pose many troubles, and we wouldn't be surprised if the home side remains undefeated in this clash. Goals Market Prediction Los Blancos still don't have a decent replacement for their injured goalie, and they need to react fast on the market. Athletic Bilbao could take advantage of this situation, and we expect both teams to find the back of the opponent's net on Saturday evening. Athletic Bilbao AH +0.5 @ 1.78 BTTS Yes @ 1.70 Correct score 1:1 @ 6.90
  7. Newcastle United vs Aston Villa Newcastle United enjoyed a tremendous campaign last season, finishing at high 4th place and securing a Champions League ticket. However, staying at these heights is harder than climbing to them, so the Magpies are set for another successful season. Eddie Howe's side was quite confident at St. James' Park last time out, losing only two times in 18 matches. The Magpies have spent more than £130 million on new signings this summer, among which Sandro Tonali is the most expensive one. On the other hand, Chris Wood moved to Nottm Forest, while Allan Saint-Maximin signed for the Saudi side Al Ahli. Newcastle United has been quite good during the pre-season, as they faced several strong rivals and didn't lose. Nevertheless, this is the first competitive game of the season, and the hosts want to kick off strongly. Aston Villa made a huge transformation from a relegation-threatened team to the Europa Conference League quals spot. Unai Emery wants to continue with good results and secure another top-half finish for his side. The Villans managed to upgrade their squad by keeping last season's key players and adding a pair of good signings. The Spanish centre-back Pau Torres came from Villarreal, while Moussa Diaby made a move from Bayer Leverkusen in a £47.5 million deal. Interestingly, Aston Villa didn't lose in the pre-season as well, beating Lazio and Valencia in their two most recent games. Although this is a tough outing, the away side hopes to pick up points from the trip to Newcastle. Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction It is going to be an exciting clash since both sides have been in good form during pre-season. However, Aston Villa hasn’t celebrated at St. James’ Park since 2005, and we believe Newcastle United will book a win in this clash. Goals Market Prediction Both teams have been quite productive lately, and we expect them to continue in the same fashion. Therefore, neither side should keep a clean sheet on Saturday evening. Newcastle United to Win @ 1.78 BTTS Yes @ 1.73 Correct score 2:1 @ 8.40
  8. Burnley vs Manchester City After being dominant in the Championship last season, Burnley managed to secure an express return to the English top flight. The Clarets suffered only three defeats during the previous campaign, winning 101 points in the process. However, playing in the Premier League is a much more challenging task. Burnley will try to stay in the elite division, and therefore, they've spent almost £70 million during the summer transfer window. They managed to sign Jordan Beyer from Borussia Monchengladbach permanently, while Zeki Amdouni will try to book another good season after scoring 22 goals in 52 appearances for Basel last season. However, the home side has a tough task in the season opener, but they will try to remain undefeated. The Citizens managed to take over the top spot from Arsenal before the finish line last season and win another title. Pep Guardiola finally managed to win the Champions League trophy with Man City after beating Inter 1-0 in Istanbul. The Premier League champions want to repeat the same success this season, and they've already made moves on the market. Although Ilkay Gundogan and Riyad Mahrez left the club, the Citizens signed a pair of Croatian internationals. Mateo Kovacic will strengthen the midfield, while Man City broke the transfer fee record after signing Josko Gvardiol. The visitors eye three points from this outing despite losing to Arsenal in the Community Shield after the penalty shootout. Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction Burnley was pretty confident at the home ground last season, but facing the defending champions is the ultimate challenge. Manchester City shouldn't miss this chance to book a win, and they should celebrate by at least two goals. Goals Market Prediction Manchester City was pretty efficient in the pre-season, but their defense leaked four times in a row. We are going to back Burnley to score, as the odds on this market are quite tempting. Manchester City AH -1.5 @ 1.93 BTTS Yes @ 2.05 Correct score 1:4 @ 19.00
  9. Manchester City vs Inter Manchester City, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 2-1 FA Cup success vs Manchester United. In that match, Manchester City managed 60% possession and 11 shots at goal, with 5 of them on target. Therefore, the Citizens won the major cup competition in England and celebrated the double after winning the Premier League. However, their campaign is not over yet, and Pep Guardiola and the lads want to reach the most valuable trophy in European football. Ahead of this clash, there’s just the lone fitness concern for Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed set of players. Zack Steffen (Knee Surgery) is out of contention. Benjamin Mendy is ineligible for this match because of suspension. Inter will come into the match following on from a 1-0 Serie A win with the downing of Torino in their previous game. In that clash, Inter managed 59% possession and 14 attempts at goal, with 4 of them on target. Inter finished the Serie A campaign in 3rd place, but they won Coppa Italia after beating Fiorentina in the finals. Over the course of their previous half-dozen clashes, Inter have bagged a tally of 12 goals. The Nerazzuri have been in excellent form lately, winning 11 times on the last 12 occasions in all competitions. Inter boss Simone Inzaghi has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Henrikh Mkhitaryan (Hamstring Injury), Joaquín Correa (Calf Injury), and Dalbert (Cruciate Ligament Injury) won’t be making appearances. Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction Manchester City has been unstoppable in 2023, and they’ve won every important game so far this year. Although we shouldn’t underestimate Inter since they have experience of winning this competition, we don’t think the Citizens will repeat the same mistake as two years ago. Therefore, we believe Manchester City will celebrate in Istanbul on Wednesday evening. Goals Market Prediction Inter should be focused mostly on counter-attacks, and we expect Manchester City to dictate the tempo. However, the Nerazzurri failed to score only once in the last 17 games, and we don’t think either team will keep a clean sheet. Manchester City to Win @ 1.50 BTTS Yes @ 1.95 Correct score 3:1 @ 12.00
  10. Fiorentina vs West Ham Fiorentina, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 3-1 Serie A victory over Sassuolo. In that game, Fiorentina had 49% possession and 15 shots at goal with seven on target. La Viola closed the domestic campaign with two straight wins, finishing in 8th place. However, Fiorentina failed to lift the Coppa Italia title after losing 2-1 to Inter. This time, the Italian team wants to do better, and they don’t want another trophy to slip away from their hands. There is just a single fitness concern for the Fiorentina manager Vincenzo Italiano to be concerned about due to a largely intact squad. Salvatore Sirigu (Achilles tendon rupture) is out of contention. Since suffering a loss in their previous game against Leicester City in Premier League action, West Ham United will be aiming to make amends here. In that match, West Ham United managed 51% possession and 16 shots at goal with three on target. David Moyes's West Ham United have converted a total of 8 times in the course of their most recent sextet of matches. Despite struggling throughout the Premier League campaign and being on the edge of relegation, the Hammers managed to secure a safe 14th-place finish. Now they have the opportunity to make this disappointing season more successful. With a completely healthy squad available for selection, West Ham United manager David Moyes has zero fitness worries whatsoever coming into this game. Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction It is going to be a tight match which can easily go either way. However, we believe Fiorentina is a bit closer to victory, and we will back the Italian team in this clash. Goals Market Prediction Neither team has been disciplined in the back recently. Fiorentina managed to keep a clean sheet only once on the previous eight occasions, while West Ham did it twice in the last nine matches. Therefore, we expect to see both teams scoring on Wednesday evening. Fiorentina to Win @ 2.80 BTTS Yes @ 1.92 Correct score 2:1 @ 10.50
  11. Manchester City vs Manchester United Manchester City will want a better result here following the 1-0 Premier League defeat last time out to Brentford. In that match, Manchester City managed 66% possession and 17 shots on goal with three on target. However, that loss won't hurt Pep Guardiola and the lads since they'd already clinched the title. The Citizens have been quite convincing in the last few months, and that great streak brought them into position to fight for two more trophies. It doesn't get much better regarding selection, with just one fitness concern for the Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola to contend with due to a largely intact squad. Nathan Aké (Hamstring Injury) will miss out. Manchester United goes into this match following a 2-1 Premier League win against Fulham in their last fixture. In that match, Manchester United had 54% possession and 21 shots on goal, with 8 of them on target. It was the Red Devils' fourth victory in a row that saw them finish 3rd in the Premier League. They'be already lifted the EFL Cup trophy earlier this season, and Man Utd will want another cup glory this season. Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has not got a full squad to pick from. Tom Heaton (Ankle Injury), Marcel Sabitzer (Meniscal Injury), Donny van de Beek (Knee Injury), and Lisandro Martínez (Metatarsal Fracture) are those who can't be considered. Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction An entertaining encounter is ahead of us since two local rivals face each other in the trophy battle. Despite Manchester United being in solid form recently, we think Manchester City should continue their "treble" dream. Goals Market Prediction Their recent h2h clashes have been a joy to watch, and each of the last three went over a 2.5 margin, with both teams scoring. Although cup finals are usually tight and low-scoring matches, we believe the tradition will continue here. Manchester City to Win @ 1.57 BTTS Yes @ 1.85 Correct score 2:1 @ 8.50
  12. Sevilla vs Roma Sevilla will be hoping to bounce back here after a 1-2 La Liga defeat last time out to Real Madrid. Nevertheless, Sevilla has been focused more on the upcoming game, where they have a chance to win the trophy for the 7th time. José Mendilibar's Sevilla has managed to score eight times over their prior six outings. The corresponding tally of goals that have been scored against them in that time is five. Although this was a disappointing campaign for Sevilla in La Liga, winning this competition would see them qualify for the Champions League. Ahead of this match, Tanguy Nianzou (Unknown Injury) and Marcão (Muscle Injury) won't be available for Sevilla boss José Mendilibar. Suspended players who are serving a ban for this game are Pape Gueye, Tecatito, and Marcos Acuña. Since a losing effort in their last game against Fiorentina in the Serie A competition, Roma will be hoping to turn things around here. Like their rivals, the Giallorossi wasn't too interested in their latest game in the Italian top flight. However, the attacking players from Roma have struggled for goals over their previous six clashes, contributing to the disappointing return of just 4. Nevertheless, this match could make this season successful for Roma. Jose Mourinho eyes another continental trophy with this team after becoming the first-ever winner of the Europa Conference League last season. Roma manager José Mourinho has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Rick Karsdorp (Knee Surgery) and Marash Kumbulla (Cruciate Ligament Injury) cannot be considered. Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction It is going to be a tight match that is really hard to predict. Sevilla is the most successful Europa League team in the history of this competition. On the other hand, Jose Mourinho will prepare his side eager to win the trophy. Therefore, we won't be surprised if this game goes to extra time. Goals Market Prediction Roma is set for a close game, and we don't expect too much action in the final third from both teams. Sevilla also won't risk too much, and we shouldn't see more than two goals in total. Draw @ 3.00 Under 2.5 FT @ 1.55 Correct score 1:1 @ 6.10
  13. Chelsea vs Newcastle United It has been a disappointing campaign for Chelsea since they will finish in the bottom half of the table. The Blues are the biggest underachievers this season, and they won’t compete on the continental stage in September. Going into this contest, Chelsea had been without a win at home for the past six matches in the league. That's never good. The fans hope that things will get better when Maurizio Pochettino takes over the bench this summer. However, Kante, Mount, James, Cucurella, Chilwell, and Badiashile have been struggling with injuries of late, speaking of the home side, and won’t be featuring for this match. Newcastle United returns to the Champions League after many troubles during the last decade. The Magpies have secured the top-four finish, and they have a chance to improve. Newcastle lost only three games on the road this season, and they want to finish the campaign in style. They’ve been doing well lately, losing just twice on the previous 13 occasions. Ahead of this game, all Saint-Maximin, Murphy, and Gordon are pushing for recalls to the starting XI, while all Ritchie, Lascelles, and Krafth remain in the recovery room. Joe Willock is unlikely to be risked against Chelsea. Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction Momentum is on the Magpies’ side, and we don’t see Chelsea improving in this game. Therefore, we won’t be surprised if Newcastle United grabs a win at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon. Goals Market Prediction Six of their last seven h2h matches stayed under a 2.5 margin, and this one shouldn’t be much different. Chelsea struggles in front of the opponent’s net, while Newcastle’s defense has been quite disciplined. That’s why we shouldn’t see more than two goals in total. Newcastle United to Win @ 2.37 Under 2.5 FT @ 2.25 Correct score 0:2 @ 13.50
  14. Juventus vs Milan After the latest ban and point deduction for Juventus, it is clear that the Bianconeri won’t finish this season in the top-four zone. After that fine and a loss to Empoli in their last match, Juventus slipped to 7th place, with one point less than Roma. Nevertheless, Juventus has had no problems scoring goals, hitting the target 100% in their last six games. They need to continue in the same fashion to increase their chances of featuring in the Europa League next season. Juventus will be without Nicolo Fagioli, Paul Pogba, Leonardo Bonucci, and Mattia De Sciglio in the upcoming game against Milan. Also, Kaio Jorge is questionable. The last season’s champions profited from Juventus’ ban and improved their position, as they are now 4th in the table. Milan is three points ahead of Atalanta, and they need to be consistent in the final two rounds. The numbers speak for themselves, with a goal scored against Milan in 5 of their last six games, allowing opponents to score a total of 7 goals. Defensively, Milan has not been doing too well, and they will need to tighten their backline to improve their chances of success at Allianz Stadium. However, Ismael Bennacer is injured and will not play in the upcoming game against Juventus. Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction Both teams have something to play for, and it will be an exciting match on Sunday evening. Juventus might be demotivated after the latest ban, and Milan should be able to take advantage of that to stay undefeated in this match. Goals Market Prediction Neither team has been tight in the back lately, and we don’t see them improving ahead of this match. That’s why we should see goals in both nets at Allianz Stadium. Milan AH +0.5 @ 1.68 BTTS Yes @ 1.87 Correct score 1:1 @ 6.50
