Weekend games race to five corners

The race to five corners is always an intriguing betting market, as one team can rack up a few corners within minutes and perhaps even lose the game too. Let’s take a look at moe race to five corners betting for the weekend’s games.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Crystal Palace

Despite the ‘new manager effect’ last weekend seeing Crystal Palace return to the win column in convincing style against Burnley, the Eagles are likely to take a battering in a London derby away to Tottenham Hotspur. 

Spurs themselves are desperate for a win at home after suffering a shock defeat in north London to Wolverhampton Wanderers in their last home outing. Regardless of the loss, they smashed Wolves in the corners statistics, racking up 10 from their 15 shots that day. Spurs also got nine in the home win over Brighton & Hove Albion before that and secured five away to Everton three weeks ago.

With a much-needed win, and given the recent attacking intent for Spurs, they should get five corners on the board pretty quickly.

Manchester City vs Manchester United

The game of the weekend across Europe sees the 192nd Manchester derby. 

Although United got a rare win against Pep Guardiola last season, Manchester City’s record under the Spaniard in this fixture needs no introduction, and he managed to guide his men to an FA Cup final win and a 6-3 battering against Manchester United in 2022/23.

Indeed, City haven’t quite been at their best in recent games, but they have still managed to stay right on the heels of Liverpool in first and put one foot into the knockout rounds of the Champions League by beating Copenhagen.

United also saw their excellent form in 2024 take a hit by losing for the first time this calendar year in a dreadful performance at home to Fulham. Erik ten Hag is also set to be without Rasmus Hojlund once again here, and with Erling Haaland back for City and scoring three times in the four league games since his return from injury, he will be eager to build on his hat-trick in this home fixture last campaign.

Either way, expect another United beating, and therefore, plenty of corners for the Citizens.

Napoli vs Juventus 

Juventus are hoping to inflict more misery on the reigning champions of Italy, as the 36-time winners of Serie A look to hold onto some sort of hope in their dreams of ending a three-season wait for the Scudetto.

Napoli are down in eighth after another winless match last weekend saw them draw with the struggling Cagliari. This also came after drawing with another team fighting relegation, Genoa, and after drawing 1-1 with Barcelona in the Champions League too. At the same time, Juventus edged past Frosinone last time out with them seeing nine corners from 22 shots.

The Old Lady have also let in just 19 goals this league season, lost just three times and sit with 20 more points on the board than Napoli. Either way, another home defeat for the champions is expected, as their mathematical loss of the Serie A trophy seems like it's just a few weeks away.
