Predictions 11 – 13.11.2023

Arsenal vs Burnley | Premier League

11/11/2023 15:00

Prediction: 2-1

On the 12th matchday of the Premier League, Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal is set to host Vincent Kompany’s Burnley at the Emirates Stadium in London on Saturday, November 11, 2023. There’s a significant gap of 20 points in the standings between Arsenal, currently third along with Liverpool and three points behind leaders Manchester City, and Burnley, who are at the bottom of the table alongside Sheffield United. In the last round, Arsenal suffered a 1-0 defeat at Newcastle but bounced back in the Champions League with a 2-0 victory against Sevilla at home. On the other hand, Burnley is struggling, having faced their fifth consecutive defeat between the Premier League and the League Cup, losing 2-0 to Crystal Palace at Turf Moor.

Arsenal has maintained an unbeaten record this season at the Emirates Stadium with six wins and two draws in league and cup competitions. They have scored in every home match played in the 2023/2024 season. Meanwhile, Burnley has suffered five consecutive defeats in league and cup competitions, conceding at least two goals in each of these matches. Additionally, Arsenal has remained unbeaten in 17 of their last 18 meetings with Burnley.

Real Madrid vs Valencia | La Liga

11/11/2023 20:00

Prediction: 2-0

The upcoming match between Real Madrid and Valencia is expected to be intriguing. Real Madrid, currently chasing in La Liga, is facing a somewhat unusual situation, especially with Girona leading the league. After a recent draw against Rayo Vallecano, there might be an eagerness for Real Madrid to secure a victory and close the gap.

On the other hand, Valencia is in good form with five consecutive positive results, including wins and draws in both league and Copa del Rey. Interestingly, most of Valencia’s recent matches have seen fewer than 2.5 goals.

Real Madrid, since their last defeat against Atletico Madrid, has been defensively solid, with only Napoli managing to score more than one goal against them. Considering these factors, the match could be closely contested, and both teams might approach it with strategic considerations.

It will be interesting to see how both teams perform and whether Real Madrid can secure a victory to stay competitive in the La Liga race. Football, being unpredictable, might bring surprises, and the actual outcome will be revealed on the match day.

Liverpool vs Brentford | Premier League

12/11/2023 14:00

Prediction: 2-1

Both teams are coming off 3-2 scorelines in their recent encounters, with Liverpool losing to Toulouse in the Europa League and Brentford defeating West Ham United. Liverpool’s recent Europa League loss was marked by contentious officiating decisions, and they are looking to bounce back at Anfield, where they have a flawless record this season.

Brentford, on the other hand, is enjoying a three-game winning streak after a challenging September. They are aiming for Europa League or Europa Conference League qualification. Brentford has not achieved four consecutive top-flight wins since 1939 and has never won four top-tier matches while scoring at least twice in each. Additionally, the last time Brentford recorded a clean sheet against Liverpool was in 1936.

Brentford’s last clean sheet against Liverpool dates back to 1936. Since Brentford’s promotion in 2021, Liverpool has won 3-0 and 1-0 at Anfield, while also suffering a 3-1 defeat at the Gtech Community Stadium in January.

  • Brentford is on a three-game winning streak, while Liverpool has won 21 of their last 22 league games.
  • Mohamed Salah, a key player for Liverpool, has scored eight goals in the league, but he hasn’t found the back of the net in his last two games.
  • Brentford has struggled to score in their two previous Premier League matches at Anfield.

Chelsea vs Manchester City | Premier League

12/11/2023 16:30

Prediction: 0-1

Chelsea aims to capitalize on their unexpected triumph against Tottenham on Monday as they prepare to host Premier League leaders Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

While Mauricio Pochettino’s team celebrated a 4-1 victory away at the then-unbeaten Spurs, it wasn’t necessarily a game that offered a precise blueprint for success against a stronger opponent. Fans are likely just as uncertain about this team now as they were before the victory.

Manchester City enters the match as favorites to secure all three points, but they must exercise caution against a Chelsea side boasting players capable of springing surprises. With Pep Guardiola’s squad back at the top of the Premier League, they aim to maintain their position.

Since Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea triumphed over City in the 2021 Champions League final, the Blues have struggled against Guardiola’s men.

Chelsea has lost their last six encounters with City in all competitions without finding the net. This losing streak without scoring marks their longest-ever against an opponent.  City has dominated these games, winning by an aggregate score of 10-0.

The last four Premier League clashes between the teams have all resulted in 1-0 victories for City. The most recent occurred at the Etihad Stadium in May, as the newly-crowned champions celebrated in style, with Álvarez’s winning goal assisted by the now-Chelsea forward Palmer.

Barcelona vs Alaves | La Liga

12/11/2023 15:15

Prediction: 3-1

Barcelona, the reigning La Liga champions, are widely anticipated to secure another title this season, boasting one of the most formidable squads in Spain and Europe. Currently positioned third in the La Liga table with 27 points from 12 matches, they trail Girona by four points and are two points behind arch-rivals Real Madrid. Atletico Madrid in fourth place has garnered 25 points from 11 games.

While excelling domestically, Barcelona faced an unexpected setback in the UEFA Champions League with a surprising 1-0 loss to Shakhtar Donetsk. Prior to this, they secured a 1-0 away win against Real Sociedad in La Liga but suffered a 2-1 defeat in El Clasico against Real Madrid.

Alaves, after finishing fourth in the Segunda Division last season and securing promotion to La Liga via playoffs, currently finds themselves grappling in 14th place with 12 points from 12 matches. They are five points clear of the relegation zone. Almeria, the bottom-placed team, has managed to gather three points from 12 games.

Alaves enters the La Liga match against Barcelona on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Almeria in the league, following a 1-0 loss to Deportivo Murcia in the Copa del Rey and a 2-1 triumph over Atletico Madrid in front of their home fans.


Statistically, Barcelona has showcased their attacking prowess, scoring 24 goals in 12 La Liga matches, while conceding 12 goals. Alaves, in contrast, has scored 10 goals in 12 La Liga games, winning one and losing two of their last five league encounters.

Notably, Robert Lewandowski has been a key contributor for Barcelona, netting five goals and providing three assists in 10 La Liga matches this season.
