Football Predictions Today & This Weekend

Predictions 04 – 06.05.2024

Arsenal vs Bournemouth | Premier League

04/05/2024 12:30

Prediction: 2-1

At this crucial stage of the season, Arteta’s Arsenal team find themselves in a position where every victory is vital and every misstep from Manchester City could mean an opening to the title, which the Gunners have been missing for a good twenty years. With just three rounds remaining, Arsenal must present their best against Bournemouth, Manchester United, and Everton. After being eliminated from the Champions League, the Gunners reacted with determination, winning three consecutive league victories. Among these, the crushing 5-0 triumph against Chelsea and the thrilling 3-2 victory in the derby against Tottenham stand out. These results demonstrated the resilience and mental strength of Arteta’s team, who are now in extraordinary form and ready to fight for the title until the end.

At the other end of the pitch, Bournemouth find themselves in mid-table with 10 points and have no particular goals to achieve at this stage of the season. However, this does not mean that they will underestimate Arsenal. With the pressure reduced, they could play with more freedom and pose an unexpected challenge for the Gunners.

  • Arsenal have the best attack in the league with 85 goals.
  • Arsenal have the best defense in the league with 28 goals conceded.
  • Arsenal must win to maintain their hopes of becoming champions.
  • Bournemouth are coming off 2 consecutive wins.

Manchester City vs Wolves  | Premier League

04/05/2024 17:30

Prediction: 3-1

In pursuit of Arsenal but virtually in the lead: this exciting duel with the Gunners for the title continues for Manchester City, a contest which until a couple of days ago also included Liverpool who, however, would now need a near miracle after the recent steps false. With four matches to play and the arithmetic certainty that by winning them all the final triumph will be assured, the Citizens host Wolverhampton and they will do so knowing the result of Arsenal, playing against Bournemouth a few hours earlier, which however will certainly not change the attitude of the team which is marching briskly after having also conquered the City Ground in Nottingham, thus achieving their fifth consecutive success in the championship.

Wolves defeated City in the first leg match at Molineaux but this does not obscure the obvious technical abundance that the Manchester team has at its disposal in De Bruyne, Haaland and Foden truly has offensive standard-bearers in form now and, absolutely out of category, and who with other individual weapons in addition to that of the game will step hard on the accelerator to find the sixth consecutive success in the Premier League.

  • 82 goals in 34 league matches: For City, the average is 2.4 goals per game.
  • In the last 6 games, Wolves have always conceded at least 1 goal.
  • The last championship match at Etihad ended 3-0 with a hat-trick from Haaland.
  • Since he returned almost at full strength, De Bruyne’s contribution to the team’s goals has been extraordinary: the Belgian has already 15 assists in this calendar year across all competitions.

Real Madrid vs Cádiz | La Liga

04/05/2024 15:15

Prediction: 2-0

Real Madrid can become Spanish champions for the 36th time in their history this weekend if they win against Cadiz CF and if Barcelona do not win in Girona at the same time. Madrid continued their unbeaten run of more than three months with a 2-2 draw away to Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final on Tuesday night. Carlo Ancelotti’s team returns to La Liga, where they have won their last 6 league matches against Celta Vigo (4-0), Osasuna (2-4), Athletic Bilbao (2-0), Mallorca (0-1), Barcelona (3-2), and Real Sociedad. The 17-goal Bellingham team, who won 0-3 in Andalusia with a brace from Rodrygo and a goal from Bellingham, are in the running for the Champions League and La Liga and should have an easy time in the second phase.

Cadiz CF, in 18th place and in the first relegation zone, face the specter of relegation, with Celta Vigo, first non-relegation zone, five points behind with five games to go. All this to say that staying at the top will be difficult and that Liga 2 is just around the corner. The Andalusian club is going through a period of poor form, with two defeats against Barcelona (0-1) and Girona (4-1) followed by a disappointing 1-1 draw with Mallorca last weekend.

  • Cadiz has obtained just one point in the last 3 matchdays of La Liga.
  • The Madrid club has not lost since January 18th.
  • Real Madrid drew against Bayern Munich (2-2) in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.
  • Real has won their last 3 matches against Cadiz (2-1, 0-2, 0-3).

Girona FC vs Barcelona | La Liga

04/05/2024 17:30

Prediction: 1-2

It’s a crucial match at the Municipal de Montilivi between Girona and Barcelona, with both teams sitting third and second respectively in the standings with 71 and 73 points. While neither team has a practical chance of winning the title, the match remains intriguing and could be filled with goals for several reasons. Girona is already assured of a spot in the Champions League next year, which might allow them to play in a slightly more relaxed manner. Additionally, they hold a 7-point lead over fourth-placed Atletico and will aim to further improve their fantastic ranking by overtaking their regional rivals with a victory.

Barcelona, although essentially out of the title race, continues to build under Xavi’s leadership. Despite recent defeats against PSG and Real Madrid, Xavi’s tenure has breathed new life into the team, and the season finale could see tactical experiments and the inclusion of young players who could play pivotal roles in the future. Both teams have a penchant for scoring and conceding goals, with Girona boasting a slightly better home record than away. The atmosphere at the stadium is expected to be electrifying and celebratory.

  • Girona won 4-2 in the first leg.
  • Girona is nearly guaranteed a spot in the Champions League, holding a 13-point lead over fifth place with 5 matches remaining.
  • Barcelona is no longer in contention for the title.
  • Girona and Barcelona have the second and third highest goal tallies in the league, with 69 and 68 goals scored respectively.
  • Both teams have conceded 40 and 39 goals respectively, with only five teams conceding fewer than 38.
