Bournemouth vs Liverpool | Premier League

11/03/2023 12:30

Prediction: 1-2

When Bournemouth return to action, they will be hosting Liverpool in their next Premier League match, and they will be looking to put the disappointment they felt in the previous game behind them when they take on Liverpool. In the standings for this division, Bournemouth are currently in last place with 21 points, while Liverpool are in fifth place with 42 points and are about to play this game. The previous match ended in a 3-2 loss for Bournemouth to Arsenal. Because of that loss, they are now in last place in the league statistics, and they will need to gather all of their resources once more in preparation for another challenging match.

Liverpool just defeated Manchester United at home by a score of 7-0, and they will be looking to continue their recent good form when they play here. The Reds have defeated Bournemouth in each of their last seven matches, during which they have only allowed a single goal to be scored against them and have scored two goals or more in each of their last eight encounters with the Cherries. In the first match against Bournemouth, Liverpool won 9-0. The injury catastrophe that Liverpool was facing is beginning to improve, and the team has begun to find its footing. They have a record of four wins and four clean sheets in their last six matches, which brings them into this contest with a perfect record.

  • In their last 12 matches, Bournemouth only have one victory and one clean sheet to show for it.
  • There has been no victory for Bournemouth in any of their last five encounters played at home.
  • Before today’s encounter, Liverpool had seven clean sheets in their previous 10 matches.
  • Bournemouth has only managed to strike once against Liverpool in their last seven head-to-head encounters.
  • In their last six encounters, Liverpool has recorded four victories. 

Crystal Palace vs Manchester City | Premier League

11/03/2023 17:30

Prediction: 0-2

Constant pressure on Arsenal. Here is the main mission of Manchester City on the lawn of Crystal Palace this Saturday afternoon. Indeed, the group trained by Pep Guardiola has the possibility of returning to 2 points of the Gunners before the latter go to Fulham the following day. Undefeated for almost 2 months and 3 successes in 5 trips, the Citizens are in a superb dynamic, which is clearly not reassuring for their London opponent before kickoff. After a thrilling first leg won 4-2, they hope to achieve a similar result in order to keep up with the crazy pace imposed by the reds and whites at the top of the standings. Relying on a rediscovered Phil Foden, an important Bernardo Silva in this sprint for the title but also finally decisive Haaland (assist), the visitors of the day have everything they need in store to take the 3 points at the end. from the final whistle!

The red zone is getting closer for Londoners. What are the main reasons? Here is the first: no success since the new year. As you will have understood, the men led by Patrick Vieira are in a long period of turbulence, and the solutions do not seem to be arriving. Playing against the championship runner-up is clearly not the right time because it is very difficult to get a positive result against such a talented team. 

  • Crystal Palace have not won a home game in 2023: 1 loss – 4 draws.
  • Crystal Palace remain on 2 draws and 3 defeats at home against City since 2017.Manchester City have won 5 of their last 10 matches.
  • Manchester City has won two consecutive away games, totaling seven goals.
  • Manchester City have the best attack in the Premier League with 66 goals scored.

Real Madrid vs Espanyol | La Liga

11/03/2023 13:00

Prediction: 2-1

On match day 25 of the Santander League, Real Madrid will play Espanyol at the Santiago Bernabéu. Those from the capital return home to prepare for the great second leg of the Champions League against Liverpool and also to ensure a victory after their trip to the south and a 0-0 draw against Betis. Putting together the Copa del Rey, there are 3 consecutive games without a win, 2 of them at the Bernabéu itself. However, their greatest asset will be their indisputable dominance in recent years against Espanyol. And it is that Real Madrid has not lost to Espanyol at home or in the league since 1996. 26 games, 24 wins, and only 2 draws are what the whites have achieved in the last 27 years against the team from the city of Cornellá.

A Catalan team that in this year 2023 started really well, winning the same games in one week (2) as in the first 16 days. They wanted to leave behind the terrible start to the season, and now they are beginning to progress and move further away from the relegation zone, and all this is thanks to the fact that in the last 10 games they have won (15), only 3 points less than Madrid itself (18). Of course, they are 13th, but with only 2 points ahead of the first descended, and the defeat against Valladolid in their last game did not help after 2 consecutive victories against Elche and Mallorca. In addition, against Madrid, they have not won or drawn since 2018, and it was in Cornellá.

  • Real Madrid have not lost any of their 11 home games in the league this season.
  • Espanyol lost 3 of their last 4 away games in all competitions.
  • Real Madrid went ahead at halftime in 4 of their 7 home victories.
  • Espanyol has 6 consecutive league games and will rest with a defeat or a draw.

Fulham vs Arsenal | Premier League

12/03/2023 14:00

Prediction: 1-2

One of the most significant derbies in London this year will be played at Craven Cottage, at least in terms of the importance of the match for the standings. Fulham are having one of their best seasons in decades and currently sit in seventh place. The Londoners remain a formidable team both at home and away and were on a run of four wins in five games prior to the defeat to Brentford. Arsenal are top of the league and are aiming to maintain their 5 margin over Manchester City. In the last Premier League, they showed great fortitude and character by recovering 2 goals from Bournemouth and winning, but the four goals conceded in two games make one doubt the Gunners’ defensive form. The attack turns, even without Gabriel Jesus, and allows you to continue to obtain important results.

  • Fulham have scored in six consecutive matches.
  • Fulham are seventh in the table.
  • Arsenal have conceded 4 goals in their last 2 games.
  • In the first leg, it ended 2-1 for Arsenal.
