From high-stakes battles between top teams to underdog-favorites clashes, we have all the best odds waiting for you over at BetKing!
Lazio vs AC Milan
Napoli has answered any questions fans had about their resolve emphatically with their performances over the last three Serie A matchdays. However, 2nd-placed AC Milan will still be hoping to put pressure on the Neapolitan side with a win tomorrow against 6th-placed Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico.
Milan first choice goalkeeper, Mike Maignan, Alessandro Florenzi, Theo Hernandez, Rade Krunic and Zlatan Ibrahimovic still remain out for the visitors while Ciro Immobile and Mario Gila will be out for the home side.
Prediction: The missing AC Milan players will be sorely missed, but the rest of the squad is still good enough to get an away win here.
- Milan to win/draw @ 1.40
- Over 1.5 goals @ 1.28
- AC Milan to win OR over 2.5 goals @ 1.48
Bayern München vs Koln
After overcoming an early deficit to claim their familiar spot atop the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich fans and players will be eager to get back to winning ways after drawing two straight games recently.
Despite the recent setback, Germany’s biggest side are still 5 points clear of 2nd-placed Eintracht Frankfurt and will be favorites against Köln, the 11th-best team in the German League.
Tomorrow’s game should see new signing Yann Sommer look more assured after several training sessions with his new team.
Prediction: This should be an easy win for the home side.
- Bayern Munich to win @ 1.23
- Bayern to win/draw & BTTS (no) @ 2.27
Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United
Despite Sunday’s loss to Arsenal, Manchester United fans should still be optimistic, due to the obvious progress being made under their new manager.
Currently fourth in the English Premier (level on points with Newcastle), still in both domestic competitions and with a round of 16 Europa League knockout tie against Barcelona to come, this season could end up being much better than even the most optimistic United fan dreamed of when the season started.
Our prediction: Against Nottingham Forest, expect Erik Ten Hag to go with a strong team with an eye on a place in the EFL Cup final. If his team can rack up some early goals, he’ll be inclined to give his senior players a rest in the second leg
- Manchester United to win @ 1.70
- Man United to win/draw & over 1.5 goals @ 1.48
- Manchester United to win/draw & BTTS (No) @ 2.45
Barcelona vs Real Sociedad
Tomorrow’s first Copa del Rey quarter fixture will see Barcelona host Real Sociedad at the Spotify Camp Nou as the Catalan giants look to add a second trophy this season.
The Blaugrana have been in good form lately and will expect to win this game easily due to the quality they have in attack and the return of their better defenders. They will need to be careful against the away team who have thoroughly merited their 3rd-place position in the Spanish La Liga so far as the best non-Real Madrid or Barcelona team this season.
Our prediction: Sociedad have several players out injured, giving the advantage to Barcelona. The home side should win this one pretty easily.
- Barcelona to win @ 1.62
- Over 2.5 goals @ 1.83
- Anybody to win and BTTS @ 2.68
Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid
Familiar rivals clash as the two biggest Madrid teams vie to qualify for the semifinals of the Copa del Rey at the Bernabeu on Thursday. Who comes out tops?
Real Madrid have now won two straight games to allay fears of a tumble down the La Liga table after losing the Spanish Super Cup final to Barcelona before going behind early to Villareal. Their subsequent comeback in the Villareal game and straightforward win against Athletic Bilbao on Sunday should give them some confidence heading into this game. Karim Benzema looks to be back to his imperious best as well.
Atletico, on the other hand, have had a better last five game spell than the hosts, wining three games and losing just once. The rejuvenated Griezmann scored once and laid on an assist in the last game and will be a handful for the Real Madrid defence to contain.
Our prediction: Games between these teams are rarely boring and we expect this one to be a feisty affair. Expect plenty bookings and set pieces here.
- Both teams to score @ 1.74
- Over 1.5 goals @ 1.30
- Over 8.5 corners @ 1.46
Manchester City vs Arsenal
When this season started, few could have predicted that Arsenal would be five points clear of City in the EPL, with a game in hand, at the halfway stage of the season. And yet, here we are.
The Gunners look ominously good, Mikel Arteta is doing an amazing job and the fans have that intangible and enormously important symbiotic connection to the players that often translates to success.
This game will be Arsenal’s first chance to test themselves against their biggest barrier to winning a first Premier League title in 19 years and the eyes of the football world will be on the Etihad to see how the game goes.
There are several juicy subplots as well: Will both teams be at full strength, giving us a preview of what we can expect in the Premier League later this season? Will one/both manager(s) field a weakened team with an eye on the other competitions? Will the winner here have an edge over the other in what is expected to be a thrilling title race?
Our prediction: Expect a tactically thrilling contest. Cup competitions have shown the gulf in quality between the Arsenal starting XI and the players on their bench, a problem City do not have. If Arteta rotates the squad, an easy City win will be the likely outcome.
- Both teams to score @ 1.60
- Anybody to win & over 2.5 goals @ 1.84
- Man City to win/draw & over 1.5 goals @ 1.49
This week’s lineup of matches promises to be exciting and action-packed. Whether you’re a die-hard fan or just looking for a thrilling match to watch, be sure to check out our amazing odds for these top games & win BIG just like our recent winners!
