Weekend Football Tips

Once again, we have action across all of Europe's major football leagues to bring you this weekend, including the Premier League's big game between Chelsea and Liverpool. We will round up the best of the weekend's matches from across Europe and bring you a selection of betting tips.

Premier League

Premier League betting tips

Man Utd face what feels like a must-win game away at Brighton in the Premier League's early kick-off on Saturday. Two teams with 100% records go head to head as Crystal Palace play host to Everton while West Brom look to get their first points on the board at home to Chelsea. Saturday's evening kick-off between Burnley and Southampton should be tense as both teams look for their first points of the campaign.

On Sunday, we have a Yorkshire derby between Sheff Utd and Leeds Utd followed by Newcastle's trip to Tottenham. Man City host the league leaders Leicester in what looks to be the tastiest Premier League tie of the weekend, while West Ham host Wolves in the evening kick-off.

La Liga

Alaves host Getafe, Valencia are at home to Huesca, Real Sociedad make the trip to Elche, and Real Betis have the home advantage against Real Madrid in Saturday's La Liga action. On Sunday, Osasuna play host to Levante in the early kick-off while Atletico take on Grananda in the afternoon. Real Valladolid are at home to Celta Vigo, and Barcelona take on Villarreal in La Liga's game of the weekend.

Serie A

Saturday's Serie A action begins with Torino vs Atalanta followed by Cagliari vs Lazio. Sampdoria then play host to newly-promoted Benevento before Inter Milan go up against Fiorentina in the evening clash. On Sunday, we start at Spezia as they play host to Sassuolo. Napoli take on Genoa and Verona host Udinese in the afternoon games, while Crotone play host to AC Milan, and then we finish the night off with Roma vs Juventus.

Bundesliga

There is plenty of action in the Bundesliga on Saturday with Gladbach vs Union Berlin, Leverkusen vs RB Leipzig, Mainz vs Stuttgart, Augsburg vs Dortmund, and Bielefeld vs Cologne all kicking-off at the same time. In the evening, we get to see how Schalke recover from their 8-0 thrashing last weekend when they play host to Werder Bremen. There are just two Sunday games in Germany's top flight with Hoffenheim hosting Bayern first off, followed by Wolfsburg's trip to Freiburg.

Ligue 1

There are just two Ligue 1 games being played on Saturday as two of the league's high-flyers lock horns when Saint-Etienne take on Rennes, which is followed by Marseille's home game against Metz. Sunday is much more jam-packed though with Bordeaux vs Nice, Angers vs Brest, Dijon vs Montpellier, Monaco vs Strasbourg, and Nimes vs Lens. With the final two matches of the weekend featuring Lorient vs Lyon and PSG's trip to Reims.

Weekend Predictions

Here are our top eight betting tips for the best of the weekend's matches across the major European leagues. We have made our predictions using an experienced tipster. This tipster uses up to date statistics to help formulate educated tips and matches each selection with the latest odds across all the major bookmakers.

Saturday

Brighton vs Man Utd

Both teams have scored in three of the last four meetings between these two clubs, and over 2.5 goals have been produced in each of their last four Premier League clashes. At least 3-goals have been scored in four of Brighton's and four of Man Utd's last six outings (including friendlies), and the visitors have only kept two clean sheets during that period.

Our tip for the Brighton vs Man Utd game: BTTS & Over 2.5 Goals @11/8 with William Hill >>


Burnley vs Southampton

Hosts Burnley haven't lost any of their last seven league games against Southampton, picking up four wins and three draws. The Saints have lost their opening three games of the new season, two in the league and one in the cup.

Our prediction for Burnley vs Southampton: Burnley Double Chance @4/6 with 888Sport >>


Leverkusen vs RB Leipzig

Five of the last six encounters between Leverkusen and RB Leipzig have seen both teams score. Three of the duo's last six encounters have ended in stalemates, and both teams scored in each of those matches. Both teams have also scored in four of RB Leipzig's last six outings (including friendlies).

Inter Milan vs Fiorentina

Both teams have scored in five of the last six clashes between these two clubs, and in three of Fiorentina's last five outings (including friendlies). Inter are also unbeaten in their last seven matches against Fiorentina, but four of those games have ended in draws, which is why we haven't backed an outright home win.

PSG vs. Bayern: Bayern to win the Champions League Final and Both teams to score

This year’s Champions League final promises a lot of goals (at least on paper) and should be a fun game even though it will be played in front of empty stands for the first time in history. Both PSG and Bayern score a lot of goals this year, but the attack of the German side simply looks to be the more unstoppable force.

Over the last five competitive games, Bayern has scored 20 goals while their opponents from Paris have managed to net 11.

Furthermore, the unbeaten streak of the Germans has to be taken seriously even though the spring half of the season was interrupted. As things stand, Bayern has not lost a match since December 2019 and has been rejuvenated under coach Hansi Flick.

PSG isn’t too shabby either also boasting a very good German coach in Thomas Tuchel. This final match is an excellent opportunity for him to show that he can beat 2 German teams in a row at the biggest stage of European club football.

We think betting the over 1.5 goals in the 1st half is an interesting idea as both sides will come out swinging. Still, the experience is on Bayern’s side as this is going to be their 11th UCL final whereas this is PSG’s inaugural appearance at this level of the tournament.

This is why the main free Champions League final tip here is to go with Bayern Munich and BTTS. Currently, this wager will get you a price of 2/1 which is significantly better from what bookies offer for only “Bayern to win”.

Our tip for the PSG – Bayern match: Bayern Munich to win + BTTS (@ 15/8 bet365

Europa League Final: Sevilla – Inter: Sevilla to win the trophy

Why do bookies keep having Sevilla as the underdog in these late stages of the Europa League? No, we are really asking. The team is fully ready to play in the one tournament it is safe to say they thrive. Additionally, they got one more day of rest than Inter.

Yes, the Italian side scored a plethora of goals against Shakhtar in the semi-final, but not many people thought it'd be otherwise. Now you get Sevilla at 12/5, and we aren't even going to bother talking about goals being scored or not. We are only going to say that the victory against Man Utd in the semi-final gave Sevilla a 20-game unbeaten streak, and this is how they will enter the final of the tournament they practically own.

Inter is heavily favoured at 6/5, but the two sides are going to be more level than bookies anticipate. The value is clearly on Sevilla, and even if they lose, this is the right side to bet on. Inter has scored 17 goals in their last 8 matches, but 5 of them came in the previous game. This means they score a little less than 2 goals per match, which should make it fairly possible for Sevilla to win outright.

Our tip for the Sevilla – Inter match: Sevilla to win the trophy (@13/10 with bet365)

Champions League Semi-final: Lyon – Bayern Munich: No value in betting “Bayern to qualify.”

As the title of this Bayern vs Lyon tips selection already shows, there's practically no point in betting Bayern to qualify for the final. Well, if you are prepared to wager a large sum, then go for it, but the value isn't there.

Everyone expects Bayern to win the match handily and to win this single-leg semi-final by a wide margin. This is where we will focus our tips. If we look at the stats, Bayern scores an average of a little over 4 goals per match in the UCL. Lyon may struggle against the well-organized German defense, so we don’t see them scoring more than one goal.

Go for the “over 4.5 goals” selection or even for the “Exact number of goals in the match  – 5”. It makes sense to us because we expect that there will be goals in the game, but we don't need to be specific about the final score. Going for the “over 2.5 goals in the first half” is also something you may consider.

Our tip for the Lyon – Bayern Munich match: “Over 4.5 goals in the match” OR “Exact number of goals – 5” (@9/5 with Ladbrokes)

Champions League Semi-final: PSG – RB Leipzig: Looks like PSG will qualify for the final

The French side managed to barely come out victorious in the final minutes of their match versus Atalanta in the quarterfinal. Their superstar Neymar came through when it mattered the most, and now the team expects Mbappe also to play.

These are uncharted waters for PSG as they have never made it to a UCL semi-final, but they definitely got the star power to beat Leipzig and advance to the final.

On the other hand, the German side looks like they have no intention of showing fear against their well-known opponent. RBL already eliminated Tottenham and Atletico Madrid, conceding just one goal in 3 consecutive Champions League matches.

We expect this to be a low-scoring affair *at least in the 1st half), but in the end, PSG will qualify, so betting this market is the way to go.

Our tip for the PSG – RB Leipzig match: PSG to qualify (@2/5 with William Hill)

Man U vs Sevilla (16/08/2020)

Today's odds are: Sevilla 21/20 | Draw 9/4 | Man Utd 7/5 (@ladbrokes)

Our prediction for the semi-final of Europa League is pretty straight: Sevilla vs. Manchester United: Sevilla will qualify against Man Utd => Sevilla to win @ 21/20 Ladbrokes

The main reason why is the strength of Sevilla's defence. We don't bet Martial or Rashford will beat them. Our second argument is Sevilla is the specialist of Europa League (5 titles and 3 times over the last 7 years)

Manchester City – Lyon Betting Tips (15.08.2020)

Did we even have any doubt that Manchester City will advance to the quarterfinals? No, we didn’t. In fact, we picked them to score in the first 15 minutes of their match against Real Madrid and they did.

Lyon did what needed to be done to advance past Juventus in the previous round but it has to be highlighted that they lost the 2nd leg only to qualify thanks to the league’s away goal rule.

Since this tie is a single-leg one, we see Manchester City beating les Gones with a clean sheet. But still, this is not our featured pick. We think that Man City will score in both halves and this is the bet we are going with.

Guardiola’s team will likely come out swinging and we will not be surprised if they look for an early goal. When it comes to the second half, Lyon doesn’t have the depth to compete with City and we think that the Frenchmen will concede at least one more time before the match ends.

Our prediction: go for the “Manchester City to win and BTTS- NO” @ 5/6 Paddy Power

Barcelona – Bayern Munich Predictions (14.08.2020). Bayern to win and BTTS (Both teams to score)

Barcelona is one of the teams that greatly benefit from their home-field advantage. They will not have this at their disposal against Bayern on Friday. To make things worse, Barca’s superstar forward Leo Messi was the victim of a hard tackle from Koulibaly in the match against Napoli and was hobbled after that.

We have no idea about how severe his condition is as he will obviously play. All of that being said, it is only normal to pick Bayern to win the match because the Germans have simply been on fire since December 2019.

Bayern is a scoring machine under manager Hansi Flick, and they proved it by beating Chelsea in a 2-leg tie in which the two matches were separated by a 5-month lockdown. The hiatus did not affect Bayern as they beat Chelsea 7-1 on aggregate.

All of this points to a match in which we will see goals. The only thing is that we are almost certain that Bayern will score more.

Our predictions: Bayern to win (@ 21/20 Ladbrokes) and both teams to score (@ 4/11 Ladbrokes”).

However, you can definitely bet on “over 3.5 goals” as well as “correct score 1-3”.

RB Leipzig – Atletico Madrid Betting Tips (13.08.2020)

Now here's a tough tie to pick. We expect to see a lot of energy by both teams, but the German squad typically attacks more and Atletico, who just grinds it out. This match is also taking place in Lisbon, and Leipzig will have to face a long journey.

Still, it shouldn’t affect how fresh the players are. We think that there is an excellent chance this match will go into extra time, and currently, you can get a price of 11/5 for that to happen.

Additionally, if you think this will be a low-scoring affair, you can go for the “under 2.5 goals” market or even for the correct score of 0-0 and 1-1.

Atletico will likely play defensively from the start making it tough for any of the teams to score. This makes us look at the “half-time correct score” market where our pick would be 0-0. Atletico's last tie in the UCL will be remembered because they beat Liverpool (previous season's champion) in extra time after falling behind first.

While it was fun watching that game, it has to be said that it also unveiled many flaws that Atletico’s offense has. It is safe to say that betting on Leipzig on the “to qualify” market is not a far-fetched thought.

Our prediction: match will go into extra time
