The weekend is here again to make another mouth-watering cash from football matches that will be played across Europe and the world.
Last weekend saw teams such as Chelsea, Man United, Man City, Liverpool, pick up maximum points and at the same time score goals above 1.5.
Soccernet.ng in its usual fashion have selected games that can be banked to earn cool cash this weekend.
Here are the picks for this week.
TORINO VS JUVENTUS
Juventus will be looking to continue their impressive start to the 2019-20 campaign when they travel to rivals Torino for the Derby Della Mole on Saturday night.
The Italian champions are currently top of Serie A with 26 points from their 10 matches, while Torino sit down in 12th having gathered 11 points from their first 10 league fixtures.
There have been 241 games played between these two sides. Juventus have recorded 104 wins compared to Torino’s 73, with 64 ending in draws, with Juve scoring 374 goals to Torino’s 317.
It should be a fascinating clash at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino. The home side will fancy their chances of causing a lot of problems, but we just fancy Juve to have enough to pick up a narrow win. (Juve win or draw under 4.5)
ARSENAL vs WOLVES
Arsenal play host to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon looking to close the gap to fourth position in the standings.
Meanwhile, Wolves, playing their fourth successive away match in all competitions, are keen to build a clear margin between themselves and the bottom three.
Saturday’s encounter will represent the 115th competitive meeting between these two clubs, with Arsenal registering 57 wins in comparison to 30 victories for Wolves.
While Arsenal have only suffered one defeat in this fixture in the last 21 games, it came as recently as April when Wolves ran out 3-1 victors at Molineux.
However, the Gunners have recorded two wins and two draws from their last four home matches against this weekend’s opponents.
Arsenal are in a position where they need to produce for their supporters, and that extra desire could be enough to see off the challenge of Wolves. (Arsenal to win)
LEVANTE vs BARCELONA
Barcelona will be looking for their eighth straight win in all competitions when they travel to Levante in Spain’s top flight on Saturday afternoon.
The Catalan giants have won their first five in La Liga to move to the summit, while Levante are 10th having gathered 14 points from their 11 league matches this season.
Barcelona have dominated this fixture, with the Catalans winning 16 of the last 20 games between the two.
Levante are certainly capable of making it a difficult afternoon for Barca, but Valverde’s side are absolutely flying at the moment, and we expect the champions to collect another three points with a routine win. (Barcelona to win and over 1.5)
ASTON VILLA vs LIVERPOOL
Premier League fans will be treated to a sneak preview of one of the EFL Cup quarter-finals on Saturday when Aston Villa welcome unbeaten league leaders Liverpool to Villa Park.
Two days after the clubs were drawn against each other for December’s cup contest they will do battle in the league, with both sides coming into the game off the back of Wednesday wins which sealed their places in the last eight.
Liverpool have won their last five league trips to Villa Park and 13 at the stadium throughout the Premier League era – more than they have beaten any other side away from home in the competition.
It may not be as comfortable as Liverpool’s last visit to the ground, but Klopp’s side should go marching on ahead of next weekend’s mouth-watering showdown with Man City. (Liverpool win or draw under 4.5)
MAN CITY vs SOUTHAMPTON
Manchester City welcome Southampton to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon for the second time in just five days.
Pep Guardiola’s side won Tuesday’s game 3-1 to secure their place in the EFL Cup quarter-finals and consign the Saints to a fourth defeat in five games in all competitions.
Saturday’s fixture is the 92nd competitive meeting between the two clubs, with City currently leading the way on 35 wins compared to Southampton’s 31.
While City have not been perfect this season, it feels as though this game has come completely at the wrong time for Southampton, who do not have the defensive solidity to stop the prolific attack of their opponents. (Man City to win and over 2.5)
REAL MADRID vs REAL BETIS
Real Madrid will welcome Real Betis to the Bernabeu on Saturday evening looking to avoid a third straight home La Liga defeat to the Green and Whites.
Indeed, Betis have been victorious on their last two league visits to the Bernabeu, but the hosts will enter this match full of confidence following a 5-0 win over Leganes on Wednesday night.
Saturday night’s game will be the 47th between these two sides with Madrid, rather unsurprisingly, having won more often than not. Real Madrid have won 24, with 13 draws and nine losses.
All things been equal, Real Madrid is expected to sweep aside Betis in this encounter. (Real Madrid to win)
WATFORD vs CHELSEA
Chelsea make the trip to Watford in the Premier League on Saturday evening looking to strengthen their hold of fourth position in the top-flight standings.
As for the Hornets, they remain in bottom spot having failed to record a win in their opening 10 matches.
Saturday’s match will represent the 36th competitive meeting between the sides, with Chelsea registering 19 wins in comparison to 10 victories for Watford.
Lampard made the decision to play several of his regulars in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night, something we feel could have a bearing on this match. However, the Blues should have enough quality to edge out their hosts at Vicarage Road. (Chelsea win or draw under 4.5)
