European League Predictions – Week 9

French Ligue 1

BORDEAUX vs PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN.

PSG suffered a rare home loss to Reims midweek. Bordeaux is unbeaten in the last six Ligue 1 matches.

PSG should bounce back at a stadium they have enjoyed much success in recent times. Bordeaux has scored in all seven league matches, therefore, both teams should score

VERDICT: 2-1 (PSG to win)

Italian Serie A

SAMPDORIA vs INTER MILAN.

Inter Milan can make it its sixth win when they face struggling Sampdoria.   Inter hasn’t lost at Sampdoria since October 2016 and is favourite to win again.

VERDICT: 1-0 (Inter Milan to win) 

German Bundesliga

RB LEIPZIG vs SCHALKE 04.

League leader RB Leipzig is setting the pace in the Bundesliga; it takes on Schalke whose current form is decent – winning three straight Bundesliga matches.  Therefore, both teams come into this game on a winning streak. However, Leipzig should deliver at home

VERDICT: 2-0 (Leipzig to win)

Spanish La Liga

ATLETICO MADRID vs REAL MADRID.

It is a top-of-the-table Madrid derby between second-place Atletico and leaders Real Madrid. Zidane’s team has turned a corner with two wins and clean sheets ahead of the derby.  Atletico has become a serious title contender. However, despite their aggressive style of play, they have lost two of the last three at home to Real Madrid. This could be a draw

VERDICT: 1-1 

 

English Premier League

MANCHESTER UNITED vs ARSENAL.

Two of the Premier League top-six face each other at Old Trafford. Manchester United will look to bounce back from defeat at West Ham, while Arsenal is targeting consecutive league wins.  Arsenal has not won at Old Trafford since 2006; this game might be the perfect opportunity to end that poor run. However, both teams look like scoring, so a stalemate seems the likely outcome.

VERDICT: 2-2
