Predictions 03 – 06.11.2023

Manchester City vs Bournemouth | Premier League

04/11/2023 15:00

Prediction: 3-1

Manchester City, currently in third place in the Premier League, have the opportunity to claim the top spot with a home victory over 17th-placed Bournemouth. The Citizens sit just two points behind league leaders Tottenham and level on points with second-placed Arsenal. With this fixture taking place before the others this weekend, City will aim to secure three points against a struggling Bournemouth side.

While City’s away form has been a challenge, winning only four out of ten games, their home record remains strong. They’ve won all four of their home league fixtures, boasting a 14-match winning streak in the Premier League at the Etihad Stadium. In their most recent home victory, they defeated Brighton and Hove Albion 2-1. During this remarkable run, City has scored at least twice in 12 of their 14 home league wins, and they’ll aim for more goals this weekend.

Bournemouth, on the other hand, secured their first league win of the season last weekend against Burnley but faced defeat against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup during the week. The Cherries are just one point above the relegation zone and have struggled away from home, earning only a single point in six away league games, which came against Brentford. In recent away matches against Brighton and Everton, they conceded three goals in each loss. Bournemouth ranks among the teams that have allowed the most away goals in the Premier League this season, only behind Luton Town and Sheffield United. They’ve conceded 24 goals in their last seven away games against Manchester City.

  • Manchester City has won their last 14 home league games.
  • In 12 of those victories, Manchester City scored at least twice.
  • Bournemouth has only earned one point from their six away league fixtures this season.
  • Manchester City has won their last 13 games against Bournemouth.
  • In all but one of these 13 wins, Manchester City scored at least twice.
  • In their last six home league games, Manchester City led at half-time and full-time.

Prediction: 0-0

Newcastle is set to host Arsenal in an exciting Premier League clash on Saturday, marking the eleventh matchday of the season. The Magpies, after a slow start, have been on the rise, achieving a series of positive results that have placed them in the sixth position, only six points behind Liverpool in fourth place. Arteta’s Arsenal, a strong contender for the title, is in hot pursuit, currently trailing Tottenham by just two points.

Newcastle is enjoying a remarkable period, with only one loss in their last twelve games, which came in the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund. During this time, they’ve secured seven victories, including a resounding 3-0 win over Manchester United in the Carabao Cup. In their recent Premier League fixture, they managed a 2-2 draw against Wolves. Arsenal, on the other hand, is heading into this match following a 3-1 loss in the Cup to West Ham, which halted their run of four consecutive positive results, including two consecutive victories against Sheffield and Sevilla.

  • Newcastle boasts the best attack in the Premier League with 26 goals, while Arsenal is third with 23 goals.
  • Seven out of the ten Premier League matches played by both Newcastle and Arsenal this season have ended with over 2.5 goals.

Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich | Bundesliga

04/11/2023 17:30

Prediction: 1-2

The clash of the year returns to Germany on Saturday with Borussia Dortmund hosting Bayern Munich. Last year’s dramatic championship finale, with Bayern snatching the top spot at the last second, only intensified the rivalry. This match is essential not only in terms of bragging rights but also for the standings. As things stand, Tuchel’s Bayern is in second place, just two points behind the leaders, Bayer Leverkusen. If Dortmund secures a victory, they could leapfrog their historic rivals and claim second place, moving up from their current fourth position.

Borussia Dortmund is in a magical moment, having won six of their last eight matches and never losing. They secured a 1-0 victory over Hoffenheim in the German Cup, and in the last round of the Bundesliga, they managed a draw with Frankfurt. On the other hand, Bayern Munich is coming off their first defeat of the season, which was quite a shock. They were eliminated from the national cup by minnows Saarbrucken (2-1). However, in their recent matches, they had a clear path to victory, triumphing over Darmstadt, Galatasaray, Mainz, Freiburg, and Copenhagen.

  • Bayern Munich has won nine of their last ten matches against Borussia Dortmund.
  • The Bavarians have won nine of their last ten matches overall.
  • Bayern has won three out of four away matches and remains undefeated.
  • Tuchel’s Borussia team has won five of their last six matches.
  • Bayern has won seven out of nine matches in the Bundesliga, with only Leverkusen having a better record with 8 wins.

Real Sociedad vs Barcelona | La Liga

04/11/2023 20:00

Prediction: 0-1

Barcelona and Real Sociedad will play a much-anticipated La Liga match this weekend. Real Sociedad, the home team, is fifth in the league, while Barcelona is fourth. A win in this game won’t put Real Sociedad in the top four, but it would boost their chances. They trail Barcelona by five points, but their four-game unbeaten streak has created optimism. They beat Bunol 1-0 in their last Copa del Rey match. This was their third win in four matches, bolstering their confidence. They’ve maintained three clean sheets in four matches, impressive. However, they lost their last two games against top-four opponents. They lost 2-1 against Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. Despite this, they’ve only lost once in 10 matches and will be optimistic against Barcelona.

Barcelona wants revenge for their 2-1 home loss in the El Clasico, when Jude Bellingham scored twice to help Real Madrid win. Barcelona suffered their first loss in 14 matches this season. They had won two straight before this loss. Barcelona has won 10 of 14 matches this season. With one loss in 18 matches versus Real Sociedad, their history should boost their confidence. This loss came in their last match in May. Five of Barcelona’s last six matches against Real Sociedad have been wins. Barcelona has a six-game away win streak.

  • Real Sociedad has had a tough time against Barcelona, losing five of their last six encounters.
  • Barcelona’s record against Real Sociedad is remarkable, with only one loss in their last 18 meetings.
  • Barcelona has achieved 10 victories in the 14 matches they’ve played this season.

Real Madrid vs Rayo Vallecano | La Liga

05/11/2023 20:00

Prediction: 2-1

Real Madrid has been in outstanding form since the beginning of the 2023/24 season, marked by a sensational comeback in the recent El Clasico against reigning champions Barcelona. They have not only reclaimed the top position in the La Liga table but are also considered favorites to regain their domestic crown under the management of Carlo Ancelotti. Real Madrid has additionally been excelling in the Champions League, having won all of their first three European matches and are eager to make a strong statement. Their last match before the October international break resulted in a convincing 4-0 victory over Osasuna, solidifying their reputation for dominant home performances. Real Madrid has achieved victory in each of their initial five matches at the Bernabeu, with a remarkable combined score of 11-2.

In their recent match, they secured a dramatic 2-2 draw at home against Champions League contenders Real Sociedad. Notably, Los Franjirrojos have shared points in five of their last six La Liga fixtures. While Rayo Vallecano has been accumulating points this season, they are fully aware of the monumental challenge they face when they travel to Madrid to play against Real Madrid. Their previous visit to the Bernabeu in top-flight action resulted in a 2-1 defeat, dating back to May 24th. Francisco’s men have faced considerable difficulties when confronting Real Madrid in recent history, with their last 12 consecutive encounters ending in losses. This losing streak spans over 23 years.

In their previous meeting on May 24th, the two Madrid rivals clashed, with Real Madrid emerging victorious with a 2-1 scoreline at the Bernabeu. Astonishingly, Ancelotti’s side has secured victory in each of their last 12 matches against Rayo Vallecano on their home turf, a remarkable run dating back to March 2000.
