Predictions 16-19-01.2023

Cameroon vs Congo | African Nations Championship

16/01/2023 19:00

Prediction: 1-0

In a warmup match on Monday, Cameroon easily defeated Sudan by a score of 2-0. Roche Foning’s goal in the 36th minute gave Alioum Saidou’s team the lead, and then Arthur Ebong’s goal 20 minutes later provided some protection for the advantage they had just taken.

Since the opening game of the 2022 World Cup, when they were defeated by Switzerland (1-0), the Indomitable Lions have gone five games without suffering a defeat. The following challenge comes from a side that has a little advantage in this series, having won three of the previous nine matches and losing only two of them.

Cameroon is headed to Algeria with something to prove after earning its best-ever CHAN finish in 2020, ranking fourth. They will be competing against Algeria in the African Nations Championship. Congo was eliminated from the African Nations Championship on Monday after suffering a 1-0 defeat at the hands of the Lions of Teranga of Senegal in their final exhibition match for the competition.

Because of this, the Red Devils came into this encounter in need of a morale boost because they had lost three of their last six matches. Congo is confident that they can advance even further in this competition after making it to the CHAN quarterfinals for the second season in a row.

Wolves vs Liverpool | FA Cup

17/01/2023 19:45

Prediction: 1-2

Is it a real crisis? Wolverhampton will issue a final ruling. Yes, because Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool now looks like a bad copy of the team that lit up the panorama of international football. The defeat against Brighton also left the German coach speechless, who defined that match as the uglyest ever played by his team.

The Wolves have already put the Reds in difficulty, forcing them into this FA Cup replay, even though the hosts weren’t in great form either. However, in the last season of the championship, Wolverhampton returned to victory and are now looking to extend their streak with another prestigious result.

  • As was said, Liverpool comes into this game carrying the weight of the three goals they gave up to Brighton (3-0).
  • In the first match of the FA Cup, the Wolves stopped the Reds, forcing them to draw at Anfield Road (2-2).
  • However, Klopp’s team had given up three more goals on the Brentford field before that (the final score was 3-1).
  • The Reds, therefore, have collected eight goals in the last three matches played between the league and the FA Cup.
  • However, since the World Cup break, Liverpool has always conceded at least one goal in every game. 

Crystal Palace vs Manchester United | Premier League

18/01/2023 20:00

Prediction: 1-0

Crystal Palace and Manchester United are scheduled to meet this Wednesday in Selhurst Park in a Premier League seventh-day postponement. The home team, led by Patrick Vieira, comes off two consecutive defeats, the last of which was in the derby with Chelsea, by 1-0, and occupies the 12th position with 22 points, seven more than West Ham, which is the first team below the waterline.

Manchester United, on the other hand, comes off a 2-1 victory in the derby with Manchester City and is in a sequence of seven victories. The Red Devils won all matches after the competition restarted after the break for the World Cup in Qatar. This series of results led Ten Haag’s team to consolidate fourth place and move closer to Newcastle, Manchester City, and Arsenal. United have 38 points, nine less than the Gunners.

  • United are on a seven-game winning streak.
  • Palace comes off two consecutive defeats.
  • The Red Devils team won every game after the competition restarted.
  • Palace have lost four of their last five meetings.
  • United have won their last two away league games.

AC Milan vs Inter Milan | Supercoppa

18.01.2023 20:00

Prediction: 1-1

On Wednesday, January 18 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the first trophy of the year for Italian football will be awarded: the Italian Super Cup. Reigning Italian champions Milan and Inter, winners of the last Coppa Italia, will play the match. An incandescent derby between two teams that are experiencing different moments: Inzaghi has raised his head after so many criticisms, and Pioli, on the other hand, has to give new life to his Rossoneri, who appeared in a lot of difficulty at the start of 2023. The game is “dry,” and in the event of a draw, it will go to extra time and, if necessary, penalties. Milan have won the trophy seven times, Inter six.

Between the two formations, Inter have responded better to the challenge, which in this 2023 season has never been lost, by winning 1-0 at home with Napoli on their return from the long break for the World Cup and repeating themselves in the last season of the championship with Verona. In between, two lackluster matches for Inzaghi’s boys, who only got through to the Coppa Italia against Parma in extra time and drew 2-2 in Monza. Pioli’s luck ran out after a 2-1 victory over Salernitana, as he drew 2-2 with Roma and drew 2-2 with Lecce in the new year. The Italian Cup elimination against Torino at home was a sore point.

  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in seven of the last nine derbies.
  • The two teams with the most Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 13 of 18 Serie A games.
  • Four of Milan’s last five matches have finished with at least three goals on the final scoreboard.
  • Inter and Milan, respectively, have the second and third best attacks in the league with 38 and 35 goals in eighteen matches.

Senegal vs Uganda | African Nations Championship

18.01.2023 20:00

Prediction: 1-0

If Uganda can defeat Senegal in the second of their two group B matches at the competition, it will be a significant step toward achieving their goal of advancing to the knockout phase of the African Nations Championship. This will be Uganda’s first time ever advancing to this stage of the competition. Following their opening game, which they won 1-0 against Ivory Coast, Senegal is currently in first place in the standings with three points. The Senegalese junior squad is seeking to follow in the footsteps of their senior team counterparts, who are the current champions of Africa. The victory over Ivory Coast was their third in the past five matches, and in CHAN play, they have three clean sheets in the last four games and in the last five matches, they have only failed to score in two of those games. There were fewer than 2.5 goals scored in four of their most recent five CHAN matches, and they have only scored more than one goal in one of their most recent five CHAN encounters. Senegal has never been defeated by Uganda in any of their four previous encounters.

Uganda, on their side, will be coming into this game on a far more disappointing run, having failed to win any of their previous four matches. This game will be their fifth match in a row without a victory. In their first game in this group, which was contested against Congo DR, they played to a scoreless tie, making it four games in a row in which they have failed to score. They have therefore lost their last four matches in a row, although they have maintained a clean sheet in three of their last five outings. Three of their most recent five matches resulted in fewer than 2.5 goals being scored, while all four of these teams’ previous meetings resulted in fewer than 2.5 goals being scored. However, the fact that they had only one defeat in their previous eight matches will give them confidence going into this contest. However, in four of their last five games played away from home, they have failed to score.

  • Uganda has gone four matches without a victory.
  • Senegal has never lost to Uganda in the four times they have played each other.
  • In three of Uganda’s most recent five matches, fewer than 2.5 goals were scored.
  • Senegal has kept three clean sheets in their previous four matches in this competition. 

Manchester City – Tottenham | Premier League

18.01.2023 20:00

Prediction: 2-1

The match of the seventh day of the Premier League, with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City hosting Antonio Conte’s Tottenham, is played at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester. The Citizens are second in the standings, 8 points behind Arsenal, and, after losing 2-0 in the League Cup at Southampton, they lost 2-1 in the league in the Manchester derby at United despite the advantage scored by Jack Grealish half an hour from the end. The Spurs, on the other hand, lost further ground to the leaders, who went on to win 0-2 on their pitch. Tottenham is now 14 points behind Arsenal.

Ups and downs for Manchester City in the league: in the last 5 matches, there have been 2 wins, 1 draw, and 2 defeats, while considering only the matches at the Etihad Stadium, we have 3 wins, 1 draw, and 1 knockout. Tottenham have the same balance sheet as the Citizens in the last 5 games of the league, while away they have 3 wins, 1 draw, and 1 defeat.
