Goalscorer Tips



Monaco vs Marseille: Wissem Ben Yedder to score and Monaco to win 3/1

Monaco will play host to Marseille on Saturday as they look to get their season back on track after a slow start to the season, but they did manage to get their first win of the campaign against newly-promoted Troyes last time out. A Sofiane Diop double would secure Monaco the three points as they won 2-1.

Marseille are also coming off a win as they beat St-Etienne 3-1 where Matteo Guendouzi would open the scoring for them, but St-Etienne would equalise soon after. In the second half, goals from Gerson and Cengiz Under would secure the three points for Marseille.

Both games were split last season. Marseille won the first game 2-1 with a late Wissem Ben Yedder penalty making the game seem more even, while the second clash saw Monaco win 3-1 convincingly after going a goal down early on.

Ben Yedder will need to improve after his poor performance in front of goal against Shakhtar Donetsk and we suspect Monaco will be the first team to leave Marseille pointless.

Ligue 1 Predictions



Milan vs Lazio: AC Milan to win 6/5

AC Milan rea coming off a resounding 4-1 win over Cagliari just before the international break which saw Oliver Giroud score a brace in his second game in Italy, while there were also goals from Rafael Leao and Sandro Tonali to round off the game.

Lazio are also coming off their own goal fest as they beat Spezia 6-1. After initially going a goal down in the fourth minute, Lazio immediately reacted as Ciro Immobile scored a first half hat trick, just as Felipe Anderson, Elseid Hysaj and Luis Alberto also scored for Lazio.

This battle was full of goals last season. The first game saw Milan wins 3-2 with a late Theo Hernandez goal securing the three points for Milan, while the second game saw Lazio comfortably win 3-0 with Joaquin Correa scoring twice.

Both teams are yet to be tested in the league so far as it is still early on and Milan have had arguably the harder fixtures thus far, and we believe they will be able to edge the away side here.

Serie A Predictions



Napoli vs Juventus: draw 23/10

Napoli are coming off a 2-1 win against Genoa which saw a late Andrea Petagne goal rescue the three points for Napoli and after Fabian Ruiz took the lead for the Neapolitans in the 39th minute, Andre Cambiaso would equalise in the 69th for Genoa.

This result left Napoli sitting fifth in Serie A, but Juventus, on the other hand, will want to rebound after their 1-0 loss to Empoli which has left them sitting in 12th.

Both games were close affairs last season as Napoli won the first game 1-0 thanks to a Lorenzo Insigne penalty in the 31st minute, while in the second game, the Old Lady comfortably won 2-1 through goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala before a late Insigne penalty halved the score.

With both teams not at their best, it is likely to see a draw between these two teams as Juventus have clearly shown they are struggling without Ronaldo, while Napoli have struggled defensively.

Serie A Predictions



Leipzig vs Bayern: Bayern to win and BTTS

Bayern Munich are coming off a convincing 5-0 win against Hertha Berlin which saw Robert Lewandowski score his first hat-trick of the season as well as goals from Thomas Muller and Jamal Musiala, who continue their solid starts to the campaign. RB Leipzig, on the other hand, are coming off a 1-0 loss to league leaders Wolfsburg.

Last season the previous games saw the points shared in the opener and Bayern winning the second. Both games were close, as the first finished 3-3 in Munich with Thomas Muller scoring in the 75th minute to rescue a point for Bayern in a game Leipzig knew they deserved to win. On the other hand, the second clash of the season saw Bayern win 1-0 in Leipzig thanks to a Leon Goretzka goal just before half time.

Leipzig have only won one game under new coach Jesse Marsch and have yet to see their team look settled under the new boss. Given this and the continued incredible form from Lewandowski, it's Bayern we're back to get the job done here.

Bundesliga Predictions



Bayer Leverkusen vs Borussia Dortmund: Erling Haaland to score 5/6

Borussia Dortmund will be hoping that they will be able to win this game a lot more comfortable compared to their previous fixtures in what hasn't been a great start to life as new head coach for Marco Rose.

A late Erling Haaland goal rescued the three points against Hoffenheim last time out and Dortmund had taken the lead through Giovanni Reyna in the 49th minute, however, they would go on to concede in the 61st through Christoph Baumgartner.

Jude Bellingham would then give Dortmund the lead once again in the 69th minute. However, Dortmund had looked like they had thrown the game away as Munas Dabbur would score in the 90th minute as the game seemed to head for a draw. A minute later, after a double save from Oliver Baumann, Haaland would give Dortmund the win after lashing the ball home.

Bayer Leverkusen, on the other hand, are coming off a resounding win as they beat Augsburg 4-1 in Bavaria in what has been a brilliant start to the 21/22 Bundesliga campaign for them.

Haaland is an obvious choice for a goalscorer here as he looks set to be the only man to rival Lewandowski this campaign, and at 5/6, we're backing him to get on the scoresheet.
