Predictions 27.05-29.05.2023

Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz | Bundesliga

27/05/2023 14:30

Prediction: 3-1

Borussia Dortmund finds themselves presented with a remarkable chance to dethrone Bayern Munich from their dominant position. In fact, on the previous day, the yellow and black team capitalized on the misstep of the reigning German champions, positioning themselves to potentially claim the title.

Nonetheless, there remains one crucial step towards securing the ultimate victory: triumphing over Mainz. The upcoming match at their home stadium on the following Saturday promises to be a fervent battleground as the renowned “Wall” supporters rally behind their beloved team in hopes of success. Yet Dortmund must contend with their present adversary, who may not have any aspirations for the championship, admittedly, but still yearns to conclude the season with honor. The question remains: Will they possess the necessary physical and psychological fortitude to do so?

  • Judging by the latest matches, it would not seem so, considering the four consecutive defeats in the last four…
  • In all four games, Mainz, moreover, has conceded at least three goals to the current opponent.
  • The last setback was particularly heavy: at home against Stuttgart in the fight not to relegate, it ended 1-4.
  • On the other hand, however, Borussia Dortmund has strung together six useful results in a row at the most important moment of the season.
  • But there’s more, because the yellow and black have won five of the last seven games played (two draws).

Cologne vs Bayern Munich | Bundesliga

27/05/2023 14:30

Prediction: 1-3

Bayern Munich’s fate is no longer within their control. If Borussia Dortmund emerge victorious in their final match, they will be crowned the champions of Germany. Hence, the Bavarians are left with the sole task of winning their match and fervently hoping for Dortmund’s defeat. Although it may seem like a small requirement, Tuchel’s squad can only focus on completing their own responsibilities.

The previous loss to Leipzig in the last round allowed the yellow and black team to surpass Bayern Munich and inch closer to the coveted trophy. Gnabri and his fellow teammates will undoubtedly strive for victory when they visit Cologne, but even that may not prove sufficient. In such a scenario, this season would be considered one of the least successful in recent years, especially when considering their premature exit from the Champions League.

  • The 1-3 suffered at the Allianz Arena in the last round against Leipzig could weigh heavily on the Bavarians…
  • Moreover, the defeat came as a bolt from the blue, as previously Bayern Munich had strung together three consecutive victories!
  • Four of Tuchel’s team’s last five matches have ended at least Over 2.5.
  • Cologne are in a good moment; in fact, they have only suffered one defeat in the last eight matches played.
  • And in six of the last seven games played, the hosts have always managed to find the net.

Inter vs Atalanta | Serie A

27/05/2023 19:45

Prediction: 3-1

The upcoming match between Inter and Atalanta at the San Siro on Saturday, May 27, is poised to be an exciting clash. Inter, the hosts, recently emerged as winners of the Italian Cup and currently sit in third place in the standings with 66 points. With Juventus being penalized by ten points, Inter is now closely eyeing a Champions League qualification. To secure their place in the top four, Inter must either win or draw their next game.

Inter is currently in exceptional form, having won nine out of their last ten games. In their most recent match, they defeated Fiorentina 2-1 in the Italian Cup final, securing the trophy. However, their winning streak came to an end with a 3-1 loss to Napoli in their penultimate game.

Atalanta, on the other hand, is currently in fifth place with 61 points. In order to maintain hope of qualifying for the prestigious Champions League, they must defeat their upcoming opponents. However, even a victory may not be sufficient, considering that AC Milan is currently holding the third position with a three-point advantage.

Atalanta experienced back-to-back defeats against Salernitana and Juventus, which complicated their path towards a higher standing in the league. However, they bounced back with a 3-1 victory over Verona in their most recent match.

Given the high stakes and the exceptional form of both teams, the clash between Inter and Atalanta promises to be a thrilling encounter.

  • Inter have won nine of their past 10 games.
  • Inzaghi’s men are coming off four straight victories in their own stadium.
  • In their last three games, Atalanta has won only twice.
  • Both league and Italian Cup matches this season were won by Inter.
  • Since 2018, Atalanta has not beaten Inter.

Juventus vs AC Milan | Serie A

28/05/2023 19:45

Prediction: 2-1

It seems like Juventus is going through a difficult period, both in terms of their performance on the field and their off-field issues. The team was eliminated by Sevilla in the semi-finals of the Europa League, which would have been a blow to their ambitions in the competition. Additionally, they received a 10-point penalty in the standings, which further affected their morale and chances of achieving their goals.

The timing of the penalty announcement, just before the Empoli match, likely had a destabilizing effect on the team. They suffered a 4-1 defeat in that match, indicating that the players’ morale might have been low and their focus disrupted.

On the other hand, Milan managed to regain their winning form in the previous round by defeating Sampdoria 5-1 at home. This victory ended a streak of three consecutive losses for Milan in both Serie A and the Champions League. It suggests that they have bounced back from their recent struggles and might be in a better position mentally and tactically.

The upcoming match between Juventus and Milan at the Allianz Stadium in Turin will be crucial for both teams, particularly in terms of securing points for the European competitions. Juventus will need to overcome their recent setbacks and find a way to motivate themselves despite the penalty, while Milan will aim to build on their recent victory and continue their positive momentum.

It will be interesting to see how both teams approach the match and how the dynamics play out on the field, given the contrasting circumstances and forms of the two sides.

  • There have been 3 Under 2.5s in the last 3 games between Juventus and Milan.
  • At home, Juventus have achieved results in 12 of the last 13 matches between the championship and the cups, only losing to Napoli by a narrow margin.
  • Milan have not won in 5 away games in a row between the league and cups, with 3 draws and 2 defeats.
  • There have been 5 Under 2.5s in Milan’s last 5 away games in all competitions.
