Dortmund vs Union Berlin: Haaland to score and win

Borussia Dortmund will be wanting a more comfortable victory this time around as they had to come from behind three times to beat Bayer Leverkusen at the BayArena thanks to goals from Erling Haaland, Julian Brandt, and Raphael Guerreiro.

Union Berlin, on the other hand, are coming off a 0-0 draw with Augsburg and last season, both teams won their home games in this fixture. Union Berlin won 2-1 at An der Alten Forsterei, while at the Signal Iduna Park. Dortmund won 2-0 comfortably.

With the fire power that is Haaland and the continuing rise of Jude Bellingham, it is hard not to see Dortmund win as they have looked like a force when attacking, the only area that may let them down is their defence. At the same time, Haaland bagged again in midweek, so we're picking him to score and win.

Juventus vs Milan: Milan to win and both teams to score

AC Milan will be wanting to inflict more hurt on Juventus and their poor start to the season as they travel to Turin.
Juventus are still looking for their first win of the season and will be looking for a rebound after they lost 2-1 to Napoli in a poor performance which highlighted the weaknesses they have in their defence and in goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.

Milan will want to continue their form as they beat Lazio 2-0 in a relatively comfortably encounter which saw Zlatan Ibrahimovic score his first goal of the season.

Last season saw both teams win in the away tie against each other. Juventus won the first game 3-1 thanks to a Federico Chiesa double and a Weston McKennie goal, before Milan would sweep the Old Lady aside in the return game, winning 3-0 in Turin.

Both teams have shown they are able to score, but both have lacked stability in defence, which is why both Milan and Juventus to score is our tip for this one.

Valencia vs Real Madrid: Karim Benzema to score and win

Valencia have experienced a revival this season and they face their first tough test against Real Madrid.

Valencia are coming off a 4-1 win against Osasuna in a game where they had to come from behind to winm while Real Madrid face a tough game against Celta Vigo which saw them go behind twice before Karim Benzema would put on a world class display to win the three points for Real.

Both Real and Valencia won a game apiece last season. Valencia won the first game 4-1 thanks to a hat trick of Carlos Soler penalties before Los Blancos would comfortably win 2-0 in the return game. Now, we're tipping Benzema to bag again and win.

Nice vs Monaco: Both teams to score and draw

The derby of the South of France is one of the key games in Ligue 1 this weekend.

Nice have experienced a great start to the season under Christoph Galtier and currently sit fourth in Ligue 1. They will want to continue this great run after they beat Nantes 2-0 last weekend thanks to goals from Kasper Dolberg and Amine Gouiri. Monaco, on the other hand, have had an underwhelming start to the season, as they once again lost, losing 2-0 to Marseille.

Both games last season saw Monaco win 2-1 in relatively comfortable results. Nice and Monaco both have the firepower to score goals and struggle defensively, especially Monaco. That is why both teams are going to score and a draw here.

PSG v Lyon: Mbappe and Messi to score

Finally, PSG host Lyon, which is the pick of the games this weekend, due to the possibility of seeing Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, and Lionel Messi all start together once again.

PSG remain unbeaten in Ligue 1 and they extended that run as they beat Clermont Foot 4-0 last weekend in a relatively routine win for the Parisians. Lyon, on the other hand, have been struggling as of late but were able to beat Strasbourg 3-1 in a comfortable win for them.

Both Lyon and PSG were during the Ligue 1 title race last season and that was shown in the results. The first game saw Lyon win 1-0 thanks to a first half goal from Tino Kadewere while the return game saw PSG win 4-2 in a game that saw Lyon lose their grip on the title race.

All eyes will be on Lionel Messi once again as he is yet to score his first goal for PSG, albeit in two appearances. If there is a time for him to score his first goal it will be in this game and as he is a big game player, he will end up scoring.
