Predictions 31.12.2022-03.01.2023

Manchester City vs Everton | Premier League

31/12/2022 15:00

Prediction: 3-1

Manchester City, led by Pep Guardiola, maintains its lead over Arsenal. The citizens are five miles from the gunners, and on Saturday, they will challenge Everton at home. Haaland and his companions restarted after the World Cup with a clear 3-1 success against Leeds away, the fourth in the last five matchdays, and they fly thanks to the best attack of the tournament (43 goals).

Everton are fourth from bottom in the table with 14 points, plus one on the relegation zone, and are in full crisis after three defeats in a row, including a 2-1 loss at home to Wolverhampton in a head-to-head crucial to the race to stay in the Premier League.


  • Manchester City has scored more than 3.5 goals in eight of the fifteen games played.
  • The citizens have the best attack in the league with 43 goals in 15 days.
  • Guardiola’s team has won 11 out of 15 matches and four of their last five in the Premier League.
  • Everton have now lost four of their last five away games.
  • Manchester City have won their last ten games against Everton, with five of them ending in Over 3.5 goals. 

Brighton vs Arsenal | Premier League

Prediction: 2-1

Saturday, December 31: A high-flying Premier League clash with Arsenal leading with 40 points, plus five on Manchester City, who face De Zerbi’s Brighton, seventh at 24 and fighting for a place in Europe. The Italian coach is not making Potter regret it; in the championship, he has won three of the last four games, including the first after the break for the World Cup, 3-1 on the Southampton field.

Arsenal are a near-perfect machine going into their 16th league game with 13 wins, one draw, and just one defeat. If this weren’t enough to make the Gunners favorites, there is still a streak of four wins in a row (against West Ham, Wolves, Chelsea, and Nottingham) left.

  • Arsenal have the second-best attack in the Premier League with 36 goals in 15 games.
  • All of Brighton’s last five games in the Premier League have finished with the Over 2.5.
  • The last two precedents have ended with at least three goals, including the one played on November 9 in the Cup (3-1 for Brighton).
  • Brighton have scored ten goals in their last four Premier League games; Arsenal have scored 11 in the same period.

Barcelona vs Espanyol | La Liga

31/12/2022 13:00

Prediction: 2-1

The resumption of La Liga after the World Cup immediately gives fans a very interesting challenge: The Catalan derby between Barcelona and Espanyol is scheduled for New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2022, at the Camp Nou. The Blaugrana, coached by Xavi, must defend first place from the attack of Real Madrid, the only team with which they will most likely fight for the title given that the third team in the standings, Real Sociedad, is already 11 points behind the top. Barça closed the first phase of the season with a 1-2 victory at Osasuna. Espanyol, on the other hand, is once again engaged in the race for salvation, and in the last league match before the break, they lost on their own pitch against Villarreal 0-1. Coach Diego Martínez’s team then played two matches in the Copa del Rey, winning both, and on December 20, they already made their official return to the field, winning against Atletico Paso, also in the cup, 0-1.

Barcelona returns to play an official match more than a month and a half after the last one. Before this match, they obtained 4 consecutive successes between the championship and the cups. Taking only the Liga into consideration, the Catalans won the last 5 games, conceding only one goal in the last match played in Pamplona against Osasuna. Espanyol played two Copa del Rey matches between November and December, winning both away games without conceding a goal. In the championship, on the other hand, he hasn’t won for 5 rounds, and in this part of the season, he has totaled 3 draws and 2 defeats.

  • Barcelona has won 12 of its last 13 league games.
  • Espanyol has won only 2 of its last 21 league games.
  • Barcelona has won their last three games against Espanyol, taking the lead early in the first half.
  • In the last 6 home games against Espanyol, Barcelona have never conceded a goal.
  • Barcelona have won the last 6 league games played at the Camp Nou and have not conceded a goal in the last 7.
