Predictions 24 – 27.11.2023

Manchester City vs Liverpool | Premier League

25/11/2023 12:30

Prediction: 2-1

The thirteenth matchday of the Premier League sets the stage for a clash between two heavyweights at the Etihad Stadium: Manchester City, the absolute favorite, and Liverpool, one of the two designated challengers along with Arsenal. The Premier League has witnessed a competitive start with several teams aiming for the top spot, including Tottenham and Aston Villa, both within striking distance.

Manchester City’s recent 4-4 draw against Chelsea exposed a somewhat relaxed defensive attitude, and facing a team of Liverpool’s caliber could lead to a defeat if similar defensive lapses occur. Despite this, City has displayed consistent scoring, notching five victories before the draw in London.

Liverpool swiftly bounced back from a minor setback, recovering from a draw with Luton and a home defeat to Toulouse in the Europa League with five consecutive victories.

In seven of the last meetings between Manchester City and Liverpool, the total goals surpassed 3.5. Manchester City comes into this game after a high-scoring 4-4 draw with Chelsea and has scored at least three goals in five consecutive matches. Liverpool, on the other hand, has scored 27 goals in 12 league games, and the top two scorers in the Premier League, Haaland and Salah, are separated by just one point in the standings.

Newcastle United vs Chelsea | Premier League

This Saturday in the Premier League, a crucial match is set to unfold as Newcastle and Chelsea face each other. Both teams are desperate for a win to keep their hopes alive for securing a spot in the Champions League. Newcastle has been facing a rough patch lately, slipping to seventh place with 20 points, six behind fourth-placed Tottenham. On the other hand, Chelsea has shown signs of improvement, garnering 16 points, but they have a long way to go. However, their recent performances suggest they might become strong contenders, given their deep and talented squad.

The two teams are in contrasting forms. Newcastle experienced setbacks in the past week, losing to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League and to Bournemouth in the Premier League. Chelsea, on the contrary, seems to be on the right track with victories against Blackburn in the Carabao Cup, a convincing win against Tottenham (4-1), and a thrilling 4-4 draw with league leaders Manchester City.

Notable statistics include four of Chelsea’s last five Premier League games ending with Over 2.5 goals, while three of Newcastle’s last five league matches have also seen Over 2.5 goals.

In the upcoming clash on Saturday, Brentford and Arsenal are set to go head-to-head in the thirteenth matchday of the Premier League. The hosts are experiencing an upward trajectory, clinching victory in three of their last four matches. This impressive run has propelled them ten points clear of the danger zone in the standings.

Juventus vs Inter Milan | Serie A

26/11/2023 19:45

Prediction: 0-1

The Allianz Stadium is set for a riveting encounter as second-placed Juventus hosts table-topping Inter Milan in Serie A this Sunday. After 12 matches, Inter finds themselves a mere two points ahead of Juventus, who, in turn, hold a comfortable six-point lead over third-placed AC Milan. Both teams, with just one league defeat each this season, boast the most formidable defensive records in the league.

Max Allegri’s Juventus enters the Sunday showdown on a remarkable five-game winning streak, overcoming Torino, Milan, Verona, Fiorentina, and Cagliari. Their defensive prowess is highlighted by six clean sheets in their last seven league outings, contributing to an impressive overall defensive record, having conceded only seven goals in 12 games.

Despite being the lowest scorers among the top seven teams, Juventus’ defensive solidity has been a crucial factor in their success. With only three defeats in their last 25 Serie A matches, Allegri’s men carry confidence into this weekend’s clash.

On the other hand, Inter Milan, prior to the international break, enjoyed a six-game winning streak, securing four Serie A victories and two Champions League triumphs. Their recent form across all competitions is impressive, with eight wins and one draw in their last nine matches, including six clean sheets.

Interestingly, Inter Milan boasts a superior defensive record compared to Juventus, having conceded one goal fewer this season. Furthermore, Inter has lost just three of their last 22 Serie A clashes, and they come into this fixture with six successive away victories.

This sets the stage for an enthralling battle at the Allianz Stadium, where defensive prowess and winning streaks will collide in a clash of Serie A titans.
