English Premier League
Saturday, Oct. 6
- Everton vs Leicester City
Leicester City’s got the better record at 4-0-3 while Everton’s only won a couple of EPL games at 2-3-2. Leicester’s played well in their last 3: 3-1 over Huddersfield, 0-0 versus Watford in the Carabao Cup, and 2-0 over Newcastle.
Everton can’t match Leicester City’s decent form, having lost 1-3 to West Ham and 0-2 to Everton. Ah, but look at what Everton did in their last match! They beat Fulham 3-0. Could that be a sign that Everton turns it around this week?
Yep. After beating Southampton in Carabao Cup on Oct. 2, they should beat Leicester City on Saturday.
Score Prediction: Everton 2, Leicester City 1
Sunday, Oct. 7
- Manchester City vs Liverpool
Sunday’s awesome match between English Premier League leaders Manchester City and Liverpool might garner as much attention as this past Saturday’s match between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid in La Liga. Heck, it might garner more attention because both Liverpool and Manchester City are at 6-1-0 in EPL.
After losing 1-2 to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup, Liverpool came back and drew with Chelsea 1-1. Manchester City’s been unreal in their last 3 matches, outscoring their opponents a combined 10 goals to 0.
Man City also got some good news on Monday after Kevin De Bruyne returned to training. If De Bruyne plays in this, Man City should win by 2 goals. If not, Man City wins by only a single goal. Let’s be positive for the Man City side and say De Bruyne hits the pitch.
Soccer Betting Prediction: Manchester City 2, Liverpool 0
Spain – La Liga Primera DivisionSaturday, Oct. 6
- Eibar vs Girona
Eibar versus Girona on Saturday should be a super competitive match because both teams are in okay, but not great, form. Girona 0-2-1 in their last 3: 2-2 draw with Barcelona, 0-1 loss to Real Betis, and 1-1 draw with Huesca.
Like Girona, Eibar’s lost a match in their last 3. Eibar’s actually lost 2 matches in their last 3, but unlike Girona, they picked up a win, 1-0 over Leganes. Although Eibar has the victory, Girona’s draw with Barcelona remains more impressive than the Eibar win.
Soccer Betting Prediction: Girona 1, Eibar 0
- Real Madrid vs Alaves
Real stepped it up in their 0-0 draw versus Atletico last Saturday. In the match before the 0-0 draw, Atletico had dumped Real 4-2 in the UEFA Super Cup back in August.
Real Madrid hasn’t allowed a goal in 4 straight matches. That should be bad news for Alaves, who just isn’t on the same level as Real. But, Alaves is in decent form. They beat Rayo Vallecano 5-1, drew with Getafe 1-1, and beat Levante 2-1 in their last 3 matches.
Alaves shouldn’t beat Real, but they could draw.
Soccer Betting Prediction: Real Madrid 2, Alaves 2
