Predictions and analyzes of all the matches to be played on Sunday  October 24 in the English Premier League, Italy Serie A, Germany Bundesliga, and Spanish La Liga, and very special matches selected from other leagues.

England Premier League

Brentford vs Leicester City

  • Leicester are yet to win a league game following a Europa League match this season.
  • Brentford have won half of their competitive fixtures this season.
  • Leicester have only won one of their four Premier League away games.

Brentford fell to just their second defeat of the season at home to Chelsea last weekend but the newly promoted side can count themselves extremely unfortunate to have lost that game and they have what it takes to bounce back on Sunday.

The Bees find themselves just three points outside the top four heading into gameweek nine and they are showing no signs of slowing down after their blistering start to life in the top flight.

They have given Arsenal, Liverpool, West Ham and Chelsea really tough games and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them take advantage of Leicester’s tiredness after their midweek trip to Moscow.

The Foxes came from behind to win that game 4-3 courtesy of a sensational Patson Daka performance and while they did beat Manchester United last weekend there are serious questions over their consistency this season.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are yet to win a game after a European tie this season and while their attackers are flourishing they have still conceded nine goals across their last three games.

With Leicester losing two of their four league away games this season and only managing to win against rock-bottom Norwich I fancy Thomas Frank’s side to get a win here. They have won half their competitive games this term and look an excellent price to get another.

Leicester have scored in all four league away games this season, though and have only failed to find the net once home and away so a 2-1 correct score prediction is a worthwhile consideration.

If you’re dipping your toes in the anytime goalscorer market Bryan Mbuemo stands out as an excellent value pick. Deployed alongside Ivan Toney at the sharp end of Brentford’s 3-5-2, the 22-year-old has scored in two of his last four league outings and comes up against a leaky Leicester defence.

West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur

  • Both teams have scored in six of West Ham’s eight Premier League games this season.
  • Tottenham have conceded in each of their last nine competitive fixtures.
  • West Ham won this fixture 2-1 last season.

West Ham took a huge step towards the Europa League knockout stages in midweek as they made it three wins from three against Genk and on Sunday they will be looking to carry that form back to the Premier League.
The Hammers have now won five of their last six matches in all competitions and find themselves just a point off the Premier League top four spots. They have suffered a couple of setbacks – namely home defeats to Manchester United and Brentford – but they are worthy favourites to get three points against their London rivals on Sunday.

Tottenham didn’t enjoy quite such a successful midweek outing as a completely changed lineup lost 1-0 in Vitesse, but they have shown signs of improvement in the league and their win over Newcastle last time out lifted them to fifth in the table.

Spurs’ goalscoring touch may be back – they have scored ten goals in their last four games – but defensively they have looked surprisingly weak for a team led by Nuno Espirito Santo.

They have conceded in each of their last nine competitive games, shipping 18 goals in total in that period and losing on four occasions.

All signs point towards an entertaining match at the London Stadium and, with both teams scoring in six of West Ham’s eight league games as well, I’m backing there to be goals at both ends.

With Spurs losing three of their last five league games I do think West Ham can emerge with all three points and a repeat of last season’s 2-1 win for them at home could be on the cards.

Manchester United vs Liverpool

  • Over 2.5 goals has landed in each of Liverpool’s last nine matches.
  • The last two meetings between these sides have produced 11 goals.
  • Mohamed Salah has scored in his last nine appearances for Liverpool.

Both Manchester United and Liverpool were on the right side of 3-2 thrillers in the Champions League in midweek and there’s every reason to suggest we could be in for another cracker of a match at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Manchester United’s second-half performance against Atalanta showed just how dangerous their attackers can be but their problems at the other end of the pitch are clear for all to see. They have conceded six goals in their last two games and have kept just one clean sheet in all competitions this season.

That certainly isn’t good news for the under-pressure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who faces the prospect of sending his team out against one of the best attacking sides in the world right now.

Following their own 3-2 win over Atletico Madrid in midweek, Liverpool have now scored an incredible 36 goals in their 12 competitive games this season and they have scored at least three goals in each of their last nine.

It will come as no surprise that Mohamed Salah has been responsible for his fair share of them. Arguably the best player in the world right now, Liverpool’s talisman has scored 12 goals in 11 outings this season and has found the net in each of his last nine appearances, making him the obvious pick for our anytime goalscorer prediction.

I simply can’t ignore the potential for goals on Sunday afternoon. The last two meetings between these old rivals have produced 11 goals and both of these sides look vulnerable at the back right now.

Each of Liverpool’s last nine games have gone over the 2.5 goal line and they have conceded eight times in their last five matches, while Manchester United have seen at least three goals in six of their last nine matches and haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of those games.

A Liverpool win holds some appeal, too. Jurgen Klopp’s side are unbeaten in all competitions this season and have won nine of their 12 matches, including six of their seven trips away. Manchester United have lost two of their last three home league games and a repeat of Liverpool’s 3-2 win in midweek offers value.

Italian Serie A

Atalanta vs Udinese

  • The hosts could be missing up to five defenders from their matchday squad and will rotate.
  • The visitors haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last 13 matches against Atalanta or in any of their recent five matches.
  • Atalanta have conceded in three of their four home games this season and have just one win.

Atalanta come into this one off the back of a disappointing result at Old Trafford during the week as they surrendered a 2-0 lead. Gasperini’s much-changed side stormed into the lead and looked as if they were going to pile even more pressure on United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. But poor defending saw them lose the game 3-2.
They will want to get back to winning ways and welcome a Udinese side who have failed to win any of their previous five games.

  Free  NBA Betting Predictions March 23

The visitors are having a tough time of it lately but did show they are a side willing to battle as, despite playing with ten men, came from behind to draw 1-1 with Bologna last weekend.

The hosts have a number of injuries going into this one as Robin Gosens, Berat Djimsiti, Meih Demiral and Hans Hateboer, to name a few, are all out here.
It means that La Dea will have a makeshift defence and it’s likely that Marten de Roon could be pushed back as a makeshift defender.

Udinese can get at this depleted backline and should be able to score, the problem is their defence is even worse. Luca Gotti’s side have conceded in all of their last five and will certainly gift Atalanta chances. As such, we’re expecting both teams to get on the score sheet with the hosts coming out victorious.

Fiorentina vs Cagliari

  • The hosts are unbeaten in their last three against Cagliari and haven’t conceded a goal in any of those.
  • Cagliari have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last 10 matches.
  • Fiorentina have opened the scoring in six of their last seven games.

The hosts have set their sights on European football this season but they have been incredibly inconsistent under Vincenzo Italiano. Four wins and four defeats in their opening eight games has oddly left them with four more points than this stage last season, but a 50% loss rate isn’t exactly confluent with a being a top-half team.

Cagliari narrowly avoided relegation last season with a late rally but this season, they have once again started poorly. The Sardinians sit firmly in the relegation spots and will be looking to take points off those sides around them.
All three of Cagliari’s league away games have seen them trail at half-time, with the visitors conceding an average of two first-half goals per road trip so far. So if they’re to frustrate Fiorentina here, they’ll need to keep things tight early on.

Despite the hosts inconsistencies, they should have far too much firepower for this struggling Cagliari outfit. We’re expecting things to be quite cagey early doors but Vincenzo Italiano’s men should get the job done with fewer than five goals in the game also landing. We’re also expecting Fiorentina to notch a couple and keep yet another clean sheet in this fixture.

Verona vs Lazio

  • There have been 24 goals in Verona’s last five games – an average of 4.8 per match.
  • Lazio has scored in all of their last six visits to Igor Tudor’s side.
  • Both teams have scored in four of the home sides last five with O2.5 goals landing in all of their last five.

Hellas Verona has been synonymous with goals lately as their recent five games have seen 24 in total – an average of 4.8 goals per match, and with Lazio coming to town, that average could increase come full time.
The hosts are aiming for their third top half finish in as many seasons and have started off well in this campaign.
Last time out, they lost a 3-2 thriller against AC Milan but did storm into a 2-0 lead before the break.

Lazio comes into this one off the back of a midweek trip to Marseille and will be eager to improve their record of just one win from their last eight Serie A away games. They have also failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their league games this season but have more than enough firepower to get the wins they need in order to better last campaign’s sixth-placed finish.

With two sides whose respective games are full of goals, we’re expecting there to be at least three goals here, if so it would mark the sixth game in a row that the hosts have been involved in a game with three or more goals seen.
The visitors have also scored in all of their last six visits to the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi. We’re expecting at least three goals and both teams to find the back of the net in what could be a high scoring draw.

Roma vs Napoli

  • There hasn’t been a single draw between these two sides in any of the last six meetings between them at the Stadio Olimpico.
  • Napoli have won nearly 70% of their away games since the start of last season.
  • The visitors will be without midfielder Piotr Zielinski for this one, he has two assists and a goal in five appearances this season so will be a big loss.

It was one of the worst night’s in AS Roma’s history on Thursday as a much rotated Jose Mourinho outfit were obliterated by Norwegian Champions Bodø/Glimt 6-1 in the Europa Conference league. Now, they focus back on their domestic season as they welcome a Napoli side who are looking to maintain their 100% Serie A record.
Napoli comes into this one knowing that they have the edge over the side from the capital in recent meetings. Luciano Spalletti’s team have won the last three meetings between the sides and have managed to score in all of their last 10 head-to-head matchups.

It’s a tough one to call given how solid both of these teams have been in their respective home and away games, but it’s hard to ignore the visitors’ scudetto credentials given that they’ve always managed to find a way to win this season even if they haven’t been playing that well.
These two sides haven’t played out a draw in any of their last six meetings at the Stadio Olimpico and we think that run continues here as Napoli secure a narrow win.
Napoli has blown plenty of teams away on the road this season but they’re coming up against a side with a magnificent home record. There’s a danger they could cancel each other out, but we think the visitors could nick it by a single goal.

Inter Milan vs Juventus

  • Since the start of last season, Inter has won 86% of their home matches.
  • In the three matches Inter Milan have played at the San Siro this season they have won two, drawn one and scored 12 goals in the process.
  • No side takes more shots on average per game at home than Inter and Juventus are facing 15 shots per game.

The hosts come into this one off the back of a disappointing 3-1 loss away to Lazio as they failed to consolidate their initial lead by killing off the game. There were plenty of controversial moments in the second half but ultimately, Inter were handed their first defeat of the season.

Juventus have been resurgent in recent weeks and have now won each of their last four league games by a 1-0 scoreline. These victories are down to a combination of exceptional defensive organisation and a little bit of luck. They were exceptionally fortunate to beat Roma and in truth, should probably have been dealt a loss in that match.

The Nerazzurri have a phenomenal record on home soil and have scored at least two goals in all of their home games this season. Despite losing a number of key personnel in the summer, they have continued this fine form at the San Siro and can create chances against this stalwart Juventus backline.

  Free Betting Predictions 14 January

The Old Lady have ridden their luck in recent outings and have not won games convincingly. Roma are horrendous travellers and dominated Massimiliano Allegri’s side for large portions of the game and we think Inter Milan can bring an ascending Juventus back down to earth here and score a couple of goals in the process.

German Bundesliga

Cologne vs Bayer Leverkusen

  • Bayer Leverkusen have won their last three Bundesliga away games with 11 scored and only two conceded.
  • Cologne lost 5-0 at Hoffenheim last week.
  • Patrick Schick has scored seven goals in his last seven Bundesliga appearances.

After losing 5-1 at home to Bayern Munich last weekend, Bayer Leverkusen can get back to winning ways when they take on a Cologne side smarting from an even-bigger defeat in Sunday’s Rhein derby.

Bayern blasted off into a 5-0 lead at BayArena then seemingly took their foot off the gas as Die Werkself were able to grab a consolation, so we will have to see if such a defeat has significantly damaged confidence in Leverkusen. Coach Gerardo Seoane rested half his regulars in the Europa League on Thursday so there should still be enough freshness in his line-up for this clash against a side still undefeated at home.

Effzeh’s 5-0 capitulation in Hoffenheim last week wasn’t in keeping with a season which has seen them hold two of last season’s top five to 1-1 draws while picking up wins against all the lower half teams they have played.

They gave the champions a bit of a scare in Munich too, losing a five-goal thriller in August so we won’t underestimate their prospects of winning the derby. But Leverkusen are probably a better road team than at home at the moment and the manner of Cologne’s defeat to a mid-table opponent last week means we are inclined to believe the visitors win this.

Patrick Schick is a man to follow in the anytime goalscorer betting after his impressive run of seven goals in his last seven Bundesliga appearances. He was one of the players rested in midweek too.

As they always do, Leverkusen will focus on attack so there’s a good chance this will be a high-scoring game again. Seoane’s side have scored 12 and conceded three in their four away games this season and, also because their win in Stuttgart was by 3-1, that is the scoreline we think best fits what a normal away win for Leverkusen is nowadays.

Stuttgart vs Union Berlin

  • Stuttgart have lost two of their last three home Bundesliga games to teams just above Union Berlin in the table.
  • Union Berlin have scored exactly two goals in each of their three away Bundesliga games this season.

Stuttgart are a young team that are clearly going places, but Union Berlin should have too much nous for Pellegrino Matarazzo’s team on Sunday.

The capital club head south on the back of three straight league wins that culminated in a fine 2-0 success over Champions League outfit Wolfsburg and was arguably their most complete performance of the season.

The Iron Ones have got some silky players, such as veteran workhorse Max Kruse and fellow striker Taiwo Awoniyi. The ex-Liverpool starlet will be hoping to keep up his hot streak in front of goal, having scored five goals in his last four club appearances.

His tussles with on-loan Arsenal centre-back Kostas Mavropanos will be an interesting sub-plot to this game and could go some way to deciding it.

Stuttgart are not watertight at the back and are yet to keep a home clean sheet in four games, during which they have conceded eight times. That is a concern for any home backers because Stuttgart’s opposition at Mercedes-Benz Arena has not been the strongest.

We’re inclined to go the other way and support an away win because Union have only had one away blip this season – against Borussia Dortmund. Urs Fischer’s side are scoring goals on the road, notching six in three games against teams that are all currently higher than Stuttgart in the table.

Die Roten’s two home defeats this season came against teams that are both only one point above Union in the standings, so it would not be a huge shock if the visitors followed suit and sank Stuttgart.

Our correct score selection is for a 2-1 away win as Union have scored no more or less than two goals in each of their away Bundesliga trips so far and both teams have scored in all of Stuttgart’s home matches.

Bochum vs Eintracht Frankfurt

  • Bochum have scored only one goal and kept two clean sheets in their last four Bundesliga matches.
  • Five of the last seven head-to-head meetings between these sides in Bochum have featured fewer than three goals.

Bochum are without a raft of first-team players for Sunday’s visit of Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga and it could force them to be even more defensive than normal. Coach Thomas Reis is denied the services of last season’s player of the year Robert Tesche, together with top scorer Simon Zoller and defenders Herbert Bockhorn and Maxim Leitsch.

The home side have struggled to score goals in recent weeks, hitting the back of the net just once in their last four games, but they did pick up four points in those games with clean sheets against Stuttgart and Greuther Furth. This is a game where they have realistic chances of another because they are playing a frustratingly inconsistent Frankfurt team.

The Eagles stunned themselves when they beat Bayern Munich in their last game prior to the October international break and appeared as if they had been celebrating for a fortnight when they lost their next one at home to struggling Hertha.

Oliver Glasner must be infuriated by the fluctuating levels of performance and it is not as though Frankfurt are fielding one of the younger teams in the league week in week out either.

They start the weekend in 14th place and closer to the relegation zone than the European places, so a more circumspect approach might also be on the cards from the visitors.

This is a game the will be determined not lose and therefore we expect a game of few openings and probably few goals. Five of the last seven head-to-head meetings between these sides in Bochum have featured fewer than three goals, hence our selection of ‘unders’.

However, Frankfurt have managed to find a bit of form recently with three wins in their last four games and may just be able to nick this one so we’re going for a 1-0 win for the visitors in the correct score market.

Spanish La Liga

Sevilla vs Levante

  • Sevilla have won all three of their home league games this term, keeping two clean sheets.
  • Los Nervionenses won both of last season’s league meetings between the sides 1-0.
  • Levante are without a win in their nine La Liga matches this term, losing four including three from five on the road.
  • Granotas have failed to score in three of their five away trips thus far.

Sevilla can temporarily go top of La Liga with a win over toiling Levante on Sunday afternoon and Julen Lopetegui’s side are tipped to do so without conceding at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Los Nervionenses stuttered to their third straight UEFA Champions League draw with a goalless stalemate at Lille in midweek, but they’ve been extremely consistent domestically so far this term with five victories and two draws gained from their opening eight matches.

Those results have been good enough to put Sevilla in a four way share of second spot going into this weekend’s action and another three points against Levante can edge them ahead of leaders Real Sociedad on goal difference, ahead of Los Txuri-Urdin’s showdown with Atletico Madrid on Sunday night.

Sevilla have been particularly impressive at home so far with a perfect three wins from three posted at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, where they’ve also secured two of their five clean sheets overall.

With Levante winless in nine (D5, L4) and failing to score in three of their away trips this season, a win to nil for Julen Lopetegui’s charges is the obvious pick for this Matchday 10 encounter.

Sevilla also won both of last term’s meetings to nil via a 1-0 score-line, though we fancy Los Nervionenses to double that margin of success this time around, such is the apparent gulf in class between the two teams.

Barcelona vs Real Madrid

  • Real Madrid have won the last three El Clasico’s including a 3-1 triumph at Camp Nou last term.
  • Barcelona have come up short against top class opposition on several occasions this season, losing without scoring against Benfica, Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich.
  • Real Madrid are comfortably the top scorers in La Liga with 22 goals netted thus far, while they also smashed five past Shakhtar Donetsk in midweek.

Real Madrid have won the last three El Clasico encounters and we’re backing Los Blancos to extend that sequence at Camp Nou this Sunday afternoon.

The bookmakers have priced up this heavyweight clash relatively evenly which we assume is largely due to Barcelona’s strong home record this season (W4, D1), though it’s fair to say that Ronald Koeman’s charges haven’t beaten a top side since overcoming current leaders Real Sociedad here on the opening day.

The Catalans have come up short on several occasions against strong opposition since, suffering comprehensive defeats without scoring against Atletico Madrid, Benfica and Bayern Munich.

Real Madrid naturally fall into that same bracket, and we simply can’t envisage Barca being able to cope with the Los Blancos forward line this Sunday.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men have comfortably outscored everyone else in La Liga thus far with 22 goals netted, while they travel to Camp Nou having smashed five past Shakhtar Donetsk in the UEFA Champions League in midweek.

The key for Real is that they have multiple goal scorers to count on, with the likes of Vinicius Junior and Marco Asensio regularly chipping in with five and three goals respectively to supplement Karim Benzema, who is currently the top marksman in Spain with nine.

In contrast, Barca are largely reliant on Memphis Depay, while their often shaky looking rear guard has already been exposed by several teams that possess similar attacking quality to Los Blancos.

It’s no secret that Real Madrid are the club who are in much better shape at present and Ancelotti’s side can confirm their recent dominance with a fourth straight El Clasico success this weekend. And with Barca’s forwards regularly failing to fire against top opposition, we’re also forecasting victory for Los Blancos via a cosy 2-0 score-line.

Real Betis vs Rayo Vallecano

  • Real Betis have won six of their last nine games in all competitions (D2, L1).
  • Rayo Vallecano have won just one of their five away trips this season, losing three.
  • Betis have conceded in five of their last six home starts, while the visitors have scored in all but one of their last six matches.

The majority of Rayo Vallecano’s early success in La Liga has been at home and Los Franjirrojos look set to come up short against a thriving Real Betis outfit at Benito Villamarin this Sunday.

It’s been a terrific return to the top flight thus far for Rayo Vallecano, who go into the weekend’s action sixth in the standings after a 2-1 victory against Elche at Campo de Futbol de Vallecas last time out.

It’s important to note though that four of Rayo’s five league wins to date have been secured on their own turf and Andoni Iraola’s men have largely been poor on the road, save for their 2-1 triumph against Athletic Bilbao at San Mames in late September.

Los Franjirrojos have lost three from five on their travels, so we’re keen to back Betis on Matchday 10 with Manuel Pellegrini’s charges in great form after six wins from nine, including four from six in La Liga.

Victory for Los Verdiblancos will lift them above their opponents in the standings and onto the coattails of the top four, which looks a realistic aim for the Andalusians this term after a sixth place finish in 2020/21.

Betis have conceded in five of their last six starts at Benito Villamarin though, so we’re forecasting a 3-1 correct score with visitors Rayo also finding the net in five of their last six games.

Atletico Madrid vs Real Sociedad

  • Atletico Madrid have won just one of their last five home games in all competitions (D3, L1).
  • Real Sociedad are unbeaten in their last 11 matches across all competitions, winning seven.
  • The league leaders have amassed 20 points from a possible 24 since losing at Barcelona on the opening day.

Leaders Real Sociedad face a formidable task this weekend against an Atletico Madrid side that have lost just one of their last 34 home games, though we think Imanol Alguacil’s charges are capable of snatching a result at Wanda Metropolitano.

Wanda undoubtedly remains the hardest venue to visit in La Liga, but Los Colchoneros have now won just one of their last five outings in all competitions here (D3, L1) and Diego Simeone’s side could be left a little flat after their taxing 3-2 UEFA Champions League defeat to Liverpool in the capital on Tuesday evening.

The 8/13 about a home victory this Sunday night certainly looks on the short side and that’s before we fully factor in how impressive Real Sociedad have been so far this season.

Since their opening day defeat at Barcelona, Los Txuri-Urdin have gone 11 games unbeaten in all competitions, winning seven, and they’ve amassed 20 points from a possible 24 domestically to surge to the top of the table.

This weekend’s trip to Wanda unquestionable marks Sociedad’s biggest test yet, but they’re an efficient, granite tough outfit which boast a superb defence that’s already maintained six La Liga clean sheets this term.

At around the 5/4 mark, we’re confidently behind the Basque side in the double chance market for this key Matchday 10 clash, and we’re also tempted to chance a rare home league defeat being inflicted upon Atleti via a 1-0 score-line.
