The weekend is here again, and it another chance to make mouth-watering cool cash from football games across Europe.
Although last weekend brought some contrasting results as teams such as Manchester United crashed 2-0 to West Ham, Barcelona losing to Granada while Sheffield United stunned Everton, Soccernet.ng have picked six games that are 95% certain of adding more cash in your bank account.
Sheffield United Vs Liverpool
Liverpool will be confident of extending their 100 per cent start to the Premier League season when they face Sheffield United on Saturday.
Sunday’s narrow win over Chelsea made it six from six as they maintained their five-point lead at the top of the table.
On the other hand, Sheffield United won in Merseyside last time out, beating Everton for their first away win in the Premier League since December 2006, but now face an entirely different prospect.
Liverpool have beaten United 60 times, losing 45 games and drawing 31. Liverpool have scored twice or more in the last 15 Premier League matches.
The last time these two sides met was back in the 2006-07 season – the Bramall Lane match ended 1-1, while Liverpool won 4-0 at Anfield.
Liverpool have not had a very good run at Bramall Lane in history, but here they will head to the venue on a high and looking to extend their fine start to the season. A massive 10 points separate the two sides on the Premier League table after just six matches, which says all about the strengths between the two sides. Heading here, Sheffield have lost the last two Premier League matches at home and we are backing Liverpool for a win, with a half time/full-time lead.
Chelsea vs Brighton
Chelsea head into Saturday’s Premier League fixture with Brighton & Hove Albion having finally ended their wait for a win at Stamford Bridge this season, courtesy of a 7-1 thrashing of Grimsby Town in the EFL Cup.
Brighton make the trip to West London having been eliminated from the competition by Aston Villa, while they are also still awaiting their first league success since the opening day of the campaign.
Saturday’s meeting will represent just the 13th competitive meeting between the two sides, with Chelsea registering 10 wins in comparison to just the one for Brighton.
That solitary success came from the first-ever clash in 1933, and Chelsea have since prevailed in 10 matches in a row.
The Blues emerged victorious by a 3-0 scoreline in last season’s corresponding fixture courtesy of goals from Olivier Giroud, Eden Hazard and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
While Chelsea are making a habit of scoring and conceding goals on a regular basis, we feel that it will be a slightly different story this weekend. Lampard is aware that he needs to find a way to secure a home win in the league, and his side could grind out three points against the Seagulls. Chelsea to win under 4.5
Tottenham vs Southampton
Tottenham Hotspur will look to end a three-game winless run on Saturday afternoon when they welcome Southampton to North London in Premier League action.
Spurs’ difficult start to the season continued on Tuesday night when they lost on penalties to Colchester United in the EFL Cup, while the Saints recorded a 4-0 win over local rivals Portsmouth in the same competition.
Saturday’s game will be the 124th competitive meeting between the two clubs, with Spurs currently leading the way with 55 wins to Southampton’s 38.
This fixture has produced goals in recent seasons, with the last nine editions seeing at least two goals scored, with games this century finishing 7-2, 5-1, 5-0 and 4-0.
One has to go all the way back to January 2001 for the last goalless draw between these teams.
Although Spurs are unlikely to solve all their problems in one game, their defeat in midweek should be enough to spur them on to a winning performance on Saturday, even if Saints cause them a few problems on the break late on. Tottenham win or draw under 4.5
Getafe vs Barcelona
Barcelona will be attempting to make it back-to-back wins for the first time this season when they travel to Getafe in La Liga on Saturday afternoon.
The Spanish champions beat Villarreal on Tuesday night to move into the fifth position in the table, while Getafe currently sit 10th with seven points to show from their first six matches of the 2019-20 campaign.
Barca won both La Liga matches between the two teams last season – following a 2-1 victory away from home with a 2-0 success at Camp Nou.
The Catalan giants have actually been victorious in each of their last three visits to Getafe in the league, with their last dropped points occurring in December 2014.
As mentioned above, it has been a fixture dominated by Barca, with Getafe failing to record a victory since November 2011 – Juan Valera scoring the only goal of that particular match against a side that included the likes of Carlos Puyol, Xavi and David Villa.
Getafe have been the draw specialists this season, while Barca are yet to record an away victory on their travels during the 2019-20 campaign. Without Messi, the Spanish champions face a huge task, but we just fancy Valverde’s side to have enough to pick up what would be an important three points.
Juventus vs Spal
Juventus will continue their pursuit of Serie A leaders Inter Milan when they welcome struggling SPAL to Turin on Saturday afternoon.
The Old Lady have collected 13 points from their five league games this season to sit second in the table, while SPAL are currently 19th with just three points to show from their start to the 2019-20 campaign.
These two clubs have met only four times in the past, and Juventus is topping this H2H duel with two wins, a draw and a loss.
Juventus have won both outings at Allianz Stadium vs Ferrara-based team.
The Bianconeri have scored at least two goals in home wins vs SPAL (2-0 and 4-1)
SPAL won the latest matchup – back in April, in Ferrara, 2 to 1.
Juve are yet to hit top form in the early weeks of the campaign, but it is difficult to go against the Italian champions on Saturday afternoon. SPAL have struggled for results this term, and we fancy Sarri’s side to record a comfortable three points in front of their own supporters.
Paderbon vs Bayern Munich
Paderborn will welcome the champions from Bayern Munich to Benteler Arena on Saturday for their meeting of the 6th round in the Bundesliga.
The hosts in this game are at the bottom of the table, sitting on the last 20th place, with a single point, while the Bavarians are up at 2nd, having earned 11 points so far.
The Bavarians are likely to be far too strong despite making changes ahead of their Champions League tie. They have annihilated Paderborn in all four meetings and Robert Lewandowski has scored four goals in three matches against Paderborn.
Bayern should be able to pick up the maximum points against Paderborn.
