The Champions League draw was the talk of the week, even more than the tips for football, regarding the matches of the UEFA competitions’ preliminary rounds. New Barcelona star man, Robert Lewandowski will have to face Bayern, the team with which he found immense success, winning (among others) 8 German Bundesliga titles and one Champions League.
But it’s now time to leave the Champions League 2022-23 draw behind us. It’s Saturday and that means football all over Europe and beyond. And, boy, is it a good day for goals. This is one of those times in our Daily Football Tips and Predictions, where we will travel across three leagues, not trying to pick winners, but trying to foresee some goalscoring patterns.
We will start our journey from North London. Arsenal are hosting neighbouring Fulham, a team that started the season strong and has shown that (this time around) has what it takes to stick to the Premier League. But if Fulham are impressive once, what can we say about Arsenal? Mikel Arteta has done a hell of a job and the team is cruising. You can see that on the Premier League stats tables. You can see it on our experts’ EPL Fantasy Football picks.
William Saliba is a revelation. Gabriel Martinelli is sensational. And Gabriel Jesus is, at this point, the best player in the English Premier League, three weeks into the season. We will back the Brazilian to find the net once again. Betting on goalscorers needs a lot of homework in order to be done right. But Jesus is on top form and we bank on him to deliver once more.
Arsenal – Fulham Prediction: Gabriel Jesus anytime scorer – 1.70
Juventus are facing Roma today. The Italian giants against Jose Mourinho’s team. Juventus started the season strong, with a 3-0 win over Sassuolo. But then they drew 0-0 against Sampdoria. They can score and they can defend, but Juventus are unstable.
Roma, on the other hand, lacks that kind of talent, but they play with passion. And Paulo Dybala wants to hurt his former team. It is an ideal situation to bet on both teams to score.
Who needs Lewandowski? Sadio Mane is leading Bayern Munich, and he is leading them to greatness. They score like it’s nobody’s business and now they have to face arch-rivals Gladbach. A team that knows how to score, but doesn’t really know how to prevent goals. We expect a full score sheet when all is set and done.
Bayern – Gladbach Prediction: Over 4.5 – 2.45
