Over 1.5 Goals Predictions & Tips: Sevilla v Levante (Thursday 18:00 BST)
Sevilla have turned a thriller at Cadiz (1-3) their way with late goals from Munir and Ivan Rakitic, completing a comeback at Ramon de Carranza and now hoping to build on the success as they host Levante. We’ve seen Lopetegui’s men in good spirits and we now expect to see more of the same as well.
Levante have bounced from a disappointing trip to Valencia (4-2) on the opening day of the campaign, beating Osasuna (1-3) on Sunday, as Melero, Roger Marti, and Morales made it on the scoresheet. We hope they’ll now do their bit as we go for an exciting game in Seville, where backing a high-scoring occasion feels like a banker bet.
Over 1.5 Goals Predictions & Tips: Sarajevo v Celtic (Thursday 19:00 BST)
Sarajevo and Celtic meet for the second season running, having previously met in the Champions League, when the Bhoys won 5-2 on aggregate, however in this one legged affair, a tougher test is expected.
The Bosnians have scored in each of their eleven matches so far this season, with Celtic holding the same record since the Scottish season started. Celtic had to be patient against Riga in the last round and a better side in Sarajevo, will fancy their chances and will look to break at pace on the counter-attack. Expect at very least a couple of goals, with Celtic taking the spoils with a narrow win.
Over 1.5 Goals Predictions & Tips: Liverpool v Arsenal (Thursday 19:45 BST)
Liverpool take on Arsenal, with two much changed teams expected, following the Reds 3-1 win over the Gunners on Monday. Both Jurgen Klopp and Mikel Arteta rotated heavily for the cup games recently and that is likely to carry on here, as they battle for a quarter-final place.
The last twelve meetings have produced over 1.5 goals, with a whopping 45 goals scored in the last ten fixtures between the two teams. Even with rotation, expect more of the same, with a score draw looking a potentially strong bet, as both sets of second string players and youngsters are a lot closer in quality, compared to the regular first elevens. A 1-1 or 2-2 draw is worth backing here, with a draw and over 1.5 goals also looking good.
Over 1.5 Goals Predictions & Tips: Tottenham v Maccabi Haifa (Thursday 20:00 BST)
Maccabi Haifa travel to London, to take on a Tottenham side who have been exceptionally busy, having played twice already, since Sunday, drawing 1-1 with Newcastle in the league and then a 1-1 draw a penalty win over Chelsea in the cup.
There have been 18 goals scored in Spurs’ last five matches, while Haifa have seen 17 scored in their last five. The Israeli’s will sit back and try to counter the home side, but this looks to be a game that Mourinho’s side should win with relatively ease, with at least a couple of goals scored. A Spurs to win and over 2.5 goals bet is worth some attention here.
Over 1.5 Goals Predictions & Tips: Union Berlin v Mainz 05 (Friday 19:30 BST)
Union Berlin and Mainz have witnessed exciting games early in the new campaign and while they’ll be desperate for points as they meet at An der Alten Forsterei on Friday evening, we’re hoping for more of the same. Iron Union have seen a 1-3 loss to Augsburg and held Borussia Monchengladbach to a 1-1 draw, which will still give them ground to build on.
Mainz have, on the other hand, seen losses to RB Leipzig (3-1) and Stuttgart (1-4) with overwhelming woes at the back. They will want more in Berlin but we feel we should be in for another exciting game on the day, with both sides scoring and conceding numbers of goals early on. We will thus go for a high-scoring occasion and hope to see goals on both ends once again!
Over 1.5 Goals Predictions & Tips: Fiorentina v Sampdoria (Friday 19:45 BST)
Fiorentina have seen two exciting outings early on and we hope to bounce from a very disappointing loss at Inter Milan (4-3) as they host Sampdoria on Friday evening. They conceded two late goals at Giuseppe Meazza and goals from Kouame, Castrovilli, and Chiesa proved nothing but a consolation.
Sampdoria will not be the same sort of a challenge and Viola will want to capitalize. However, they’ve seen thrillers of their own so far and we feel their performances serve as further evidence for those going for goals here, as we stick with a high-scoring occasion at Artemio Franchi Stadium as well.
Over 1.5 Goals Predictions & Tips: Coventry v Bournemouth (Friday 19:45 BST)
Coventry and Bournemouth meet at St.Andrews, with the home side hoping to extend their unbeaten league run, against a Cherries side who are unbeaten in the league so far this season. Coventry drew 0-0 with Barnsley in their last game, while Bournemouth beat Norwich 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium.
Each side has been involved in three matches with more than 1.5 goals so far and this looks to be another on the cards, with Bournemouth the stronger side on paper. Coventry’s one home game brought a 3-2 win over Q.P.R. and they will be expected to take the game to their opponents. Expect the former Premier League side to take the three points, with a couple of goals total at least.
Over 1.5 Goals Predictions & Tips: Aberdeen v St Mirren (Friday 19:45 BST)
Aberdeen take on St Mirren in the Scottish Premiership, with the hosts looking to keep up with rivals Hibernian, while the visitors look to try and get themselves off the bottom of the table, having lost their last five games.
Three of the last four matches for Aberdeen have seen more than 1.5 goals scored, while St Mirren have had five of their nine games feature a goal or less. Expect a confident Aberdeen side to take the points here and a couple of goals at very least on the scoreboard.
Over 1.5 Goals Predictions & Tips: PSG v Angers (Friday 20:00 BST)
PSG felt more confident and we’ve seen Thomas Tuchel’s men connected a streak of three wins in their last three outings. They will now look to keep it up as they host Angers on Friday evening and we do see them making it happen, as we look into what’s shaping to be an exciting contest at Parc des Princes.
Angers haven’t been easy to deal with lately and we’ve seen them scoring goals on the regular. The visitors turned a five-goal thriller against Brest (3-2) their way, as Ismael Traore and Angelo Fulgini completed a late comeback. They will now be looking for an upset and while we do hope to see an exciting challenge, we don’t see them making it happen.
Over 1.5 Goals Predictions & Tips: Sassuolo v Crotone (Saturday 14:00 BST)
Sassuolo have seen a couple of thrilling occasions early in the new campaign and they host Crotone seemingly in for another such occasion. They haven’t been as consistent defensively as they would have wanted but still beat Spezia (1-4) with great confidence, which promises a great challenge at MAPEI Stadium once again.
Crotone haven’t been able to get off on the right foot in Serie A and they’ve seen losses to Genoa (4-1) and Milan (0-2) already, where it felt like a smooth sailing for the rivals. We do hope they can do their bit here and we now expect another high-scoring occasion on their hands, although we don’t really see the visitors snatching any points on the day.
Over 1.5 Goals Predictions & Tips: Eintracht Frankfurt v Hoffenheim (Saturday 14:30 BST)
Hoffenheim have a lot to be happy about early in the new campaign, proving their fine form in the final third and now topping the table for it. They’ve been led by in-form Andrej Kramaric, who has five of their seven goals to his name after two games. Hoffenheim beat Koln (2-3) and Bayern Munich (4-1) as we saw ten goals along the way and we’re now hoping for more of the same.
Eintracht Frankfurt promise just as much and we’ve seen them scoring and conceding on the regular. They’ve been held to a 1-1 draw by Arminia Bielefeld but beat Hertha Berlin (1-3) more recently, where Andre Silva, Bas Dost, and Sebastian Rode all made it on the scoresheet. We’re now hoping for another such occasion and we back a high-scoring first half at Deutsche Bank Park.
Over 1.5 Goals Predictions & Tips: Valencia v Real Betis (Saturday 20:00 BST)
Valencia have turned a narrow contest at Real Sociedad (0-1) their way with a single goal from Maxi Gomez and they host Real Betis in good spirits. They will hope to build on the success and we expect them very motivated at Mestalla, despite struggles for consistency and early criticism after a very busy summer.
Real Betis will be no easy side to outclass and we feel the visitors have hopes of their own, despite seeing exciting losses to Real Madrid (2-3) and Getafe (3-0) in their last two outings. They have been scoring goals quite regularly and we feel Los Che will have to outgun the visitors if they’re to secure the points, as we go for goals on Saturday too.
Over 1.5 Goals Predictions & Tips: Lens v St Etienne (Saturday 16:00 BST)
Lens kicked off their campaign well and we’ve seen them in good form in the final third, as they bagged seven goals in the last four games and earned ten points along the way. They will now hope to keep it up as they host St Etienne on Saturday and we do see them making it happen.
St Etienne haven’t felt as consistent at the back more recently and it was certainly felt in a 2-2 draw at Nantes and even more so in a comfortable home loss to Rennes (0-3). They will now be looking to end the unwanted streak but could have trouble doing so, as we head into another exciting game at Bollaert-Delelis Stadium in the making.
Over 1.5 Goals Predictions & Tips: Levante v Real Madrid (Sunday 15:00 BST)
Real Madrid connected a two-match winning streak over the past seven days, as they beat Betis (2-3) on Saturday and Real Valladolid (1-0) on Wednesday. They haven’t been as consistent in the final third as they might have wanted it but we expect them in great spirits as they travel to Villarreal.
Levante could find it hard to cope with obvious defensive troubles on their hands. They’ve conceded five goals in two games, as they suffered a 4-2 loss at Valencia and beat Osasuna (1-3) ahead of their Thursday’s trip to Seville. We don’t see Granotas making the best of a tough schedule now but we do hope for a thrilling clash on Sunday.
