WEEKEND PREDICTIONS JAN 2021
- MONACO VS ANGERS (O2.5)
Both sides are close to each other on the Ligue 1 table with equal points separated with just goal difference. Monaco are 6th & Angers are 7th. Both sides have made O2.5 in their last 2 fixtures and they meet today to battle it out for a top enter the Top 4. Both can easily score and I see an Over in this game.
- RENNES VS LYON (O2.5)
Both sides are in great form and haven’t lost a game from their last 5 fixtures. In their last 5 H2H meetings, it has always been the way side winning the encounter but however both sides currently easily score and can easily concede. Lyon topping the table and Rennes lying 4th, I expect a lot of attacking football from either to yield a couple of goals
- RB LEIPZIG VS DORTMUND (YES)
2 sides well known for attacking football and high scoring levels meet today at the Red Bull Arena. Without any doubts, I see each side at least scoring a goal in this fixture. Each of the 2 sides have at least scored 7 goals in their last 5 outings
- BENEVENTO VS ATALATA (2)
Benevento are trying to collect points to keep them in the league but are going to find it hard to stop Atalanta who have recently regained their form. Atalanta have not lost any game in their last 5 fixtures.
- AC MILAN VS TORINO (1)
After losing to Juventus in mid week, I don’t see Ac Milan losing a second one in row as their table lead is now by just 1 point. Ac Milan have not lost any home game to Torino in their last 5 meetings
- SEVILLA VS REAL SOCIEDAD (O2.5)
Real Sociedad with a total of 10 players injured are kind of limited of their full strength. Being home and having a good home advantage I see Sevilla winning this encounter. Sevilla have won the last 3 home H2H meetings with Sociedad.
- ATLETICO MADRID VS ATHLETIC BILBAO (1)
Atletico currently tops the league with 2 games in hand and will take this fixture so vital in their title charge. Bilbao having lost to Barcelona in mid week moreover at home gives them no chance against an inform Atletico at the Wanda Metropolitano. Atletico have won all the last 5 H2H meetings with Bilbao at home.
- GRANADA VS BARCELONA (2&U 2.5)
At Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes Granada host Barcelona who are very hungry and fighting to regain their week in week out winning mentality and form. Granada has a good back line and does not easily concede. Barcelona will win the encounter with a low margin but with less goals. 4/5 of the last H2H meetings were won by Barcelona and 3 of these last 5 meetings saw 2.5 under.
- ARSENAL VS NEWCASTLE (1)
Arsenal face Newcastle today in the FA Cup knowing their chances of competing for EPL trophy are minimal after their poor run from November to Mid-December. However, they regained form and won all their last 3 fixtures and will capitalize on Newcastle poor defense weaknesses to win this game since FA is one of the hopes they have if they are to win silver ware this season.
- MANCHESTER UNITED VS WATFORD (1)
It’s still the FA Cup and I see United winning this game. After being knocked out of the Carabao Cup in Mid-week by Man City, United hopes of winning silver ware this season reduced and therefore will take this game so serious looking for a must win. United have won 6/7 last H2H meetings with Watford
- OSASUNA VS REAL MADRID (2&O1.5)
2nd placed Madrid play Osasuna who have not won a single league game from all their last 8 fixtures. Madrid trail Atletico by 2 points and today’s win will boost their title charge this season. Real Madrid have won 7/7 of the last H2H meetings with Osasuna. I see a comfortable Madrisd win with Over 2 goals.
