At Borussia Park, we are to have a maximum of 54,042 fans as two big sides meet in the Bundesliga round 11. The hosts are 11th placed as the guests sit 9th on the log, but guess what? Each of the 2 sides’ last 4 games played have made O2.5 goals. Do not hesitate to put your money on the safest bet of the weekend. 14 goals have been scored in their last 4 H2H meetings.
Celta Vigo currently 18th placed in relegation zone are guests to 5th Bilbao as the race to secure UEFA spots and jump out of relegation continues respectively. I anticipate a tough game today at Estadio San Mames as Celta won’t be an easy side for the hosts following their last game against Sevilla. The safest bet here is U2.5 goals. 4/5 of their last H2H meetings have seen U2.5 goals.
After receiving 2 red cards, high flying Tottenham shocked all punters when they succumbed to a 4:1 loss to struggling Chelsea in the London derby on Monday. Here comes Wolves at Molineux who hardly concede at home. I anticipate a game result with less than 3 goals. 5/5 last H2H meetings have seen U2.5 goals.
If there is a game for United to revive their winning mentality, this is the one after attaining a win last weekend and a painful Champions League defeat to Copenhagen. A win today will see them possibly moving 6th on the log keeping other factors constant. United have won 5/6 last H2H, 4 of these seeing O2.5 goals.
Oh my goodness! What a game this is going to be. 3rd placed Stuttgart host 4th placed Dortmund as the race to cling the gap between 2 leaders Bayern and Bayer Leverkusen continues. Dortmund and Stuttgart and tied up on 21 points with just goals separating the 2 sides. I anticipate an end to end game with both sides wanting to claim 3 points today since both lost over the weekend. 4/5 last H2H have seen O2.5 with 3 of these seeing both teams score at least a goal in each game.
Madrid are currently 2nd placed after making a goalless draw with Rayo Vallecano over the weekend. Being at home I expect them to use all possible effort and pedigree to defeat 8th placed Valencia however promising the latter has been in their previous games. Home win is worth a risk.
Vitoria Guimaraes are currently 5th placed as they host 3rd placed Porto at Estadio D. Afonso Henriques. Both sides are in high flying form as the quest for top spots continues. Guimaraes have scored in all their last 5 home games and I see them doing the same today against a defensively vulnerable Porto.
West Ham have lost all their last 3 league games conceding in each. Basing on that I expect them to also concede a goal today. Following the home side’s recent bad form, they will really try to go for the 3 points in this game in a bid to revive their season. Expect an end to end game with goals flocking in from both sides.
Log leaders are guests at Stamford Bridge as the Blues look forward to move further up the table following their dramatic win over Tottenham on Monday. I expect Man City to comfortably defeat Chelsea and the game will have a minimum of 2 goals. Chelsea are really struggling in all departments of the field hence cannot match Man City’s class, quality and form at the moment.
It is the Roma derby as two rival clubs meet today at Stadio Olimpico. Who wins? Quite a hard question but the whole confidence runs around how these 2 sides have been performing every time they meet. To add, both sides have too much respect for each other and I expect Jose Mourinho to be a bit reserved to avoid losing this fixture. 4/5 of their last H2H meetings have seen Non Goal Goal.
