Predictions 06.04-08.05.2023

Manchester City vs Leeds United | Premier League (06.05.2023, 16:00)

Manchester City, who are currently at the top of the English Premier League standings, will aim to widen their lead over second-placed Arsenal when they face Leeds United on matchday 35. City is on track for their third straight league title and their fifth in six years, leading Arsenal by one point and having a game in hand. Meanwhile, Leeds is struggling in 17th place and is tied on points with 18th-placed Nottingham Forest, putting them in danger of being relegated to the Championship.

Manchester City is the overwhelming favorite to win the league title. If they win their game in hand, they can potentially increase their lead to four points with four matches remaining. City is currently on a winning streak, having won 14 of their last 15 matches across all competitions, with their only draw being a 1-1 away match against Bayern Munich. Their last game resulted in a comfortable 3-0 home win over West Ham, with three goals in the second half.

On the other hand, Leeds is facing a tough challenge against Manchester City, who are in peak form. Leeds suffered a 4-1 away defeat to Bournemouth, which resulted in the sacking of their former manager, Javi Gracia. The team’s board chose Sam Allardyce to replace Gracia and try to avoid relegation, but the 68-year-old will face a daunting task in his first game in charge. Leeds have only managed to earn one point in their last five matches, losing four and conceding a staggering 18 goals during that period. They have lost 12 of their 17 away matches and are expected to suffer another heavy defeat against Manchester City, given their recent lack of defensive stability.

Real Madrid vs Osasuna | Copa del Rey (06.05.2023, 22:00)

The spotlight is on Seville, specifically the De la Cartuja stadium, where the highly anticipated Copa del Rey final between Real Madrid and Osasuna will take place. The excitement surrounding this historic competition, founded in 1903, goes beyond any other final for two reasons. Firstly, the underdog Osasuna, who have never won the Cup despite coming close in the early 2000s with a semi-final and final, are participating. Despite having a good season, they are still in mid-table. Secondly, Real Madrid, the galactic and highly successful team, have a recent curse with this cup, having not won it since 2013–2014. Considering they have won 19 titles in 10 years since that season, it is strange that this trophy has never returned to their showcase.

Aside from these specificities, the excitement surrounding the final is always high, and the pairing of a big team against a smaller one is always intriguing when it comes to predictions and the balance of power on the field. However, it is worth noting that Osasuna’s journey to the final was impressive, beating the two Seville teams (including the holder, Betis) and Atletico Bilbao, the second-most successful team in the cup, in the last three rounds. In contrast, Real Madrid’s highlight was undoubtedly the second leg of the semi-final at Camp Nou, where Ancelotti’s team produced an unforgettable comeback, overturning a 0-4 deficit from the first leg against their rivals thanks to goals from Vinicius and a hat trick from the legendary Benzema.

Now, however, there is a sense of responsibility and a need to complete the journey for Real Madrid, as the opportunity to lift the trophy is too tempting to pass up. However, Osasuna is a tough opponent and has shown that they are prepared, having drawn against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu both this year and last year. Therefore, the excitement and interest surrounding this final can only be at their maximum.

We believe that Real Madrid will roll to a victory with a score of 3-1 after taking into account all of the relevant factors.

 

 

AC Milan vs Lazio | Serie A (06.05.2023, 15:00)

We are approaching a pivotal weekend in the Serie A Champions League race, with two direct clashes between the teams currently occupying the second to seventh positions. The first of these matches will take place on Saturday, between Milan and Lazio. The Rossoneri will also have one eye on their upcoming Champions League semi-final against Inter.

Milan dropped another two crucial points at home to Cremonese in the midweek round, and as a result, they are currently outside the top four. This makes the match against Lazio very important for their standing in the league. Lazio, on the other hand, consolidated their second-place position with a 2-0 victory against Sassuolo at the Olimpico.

Maurizio Sarri’s team has a chance to break away this weekend, but they will need to perform better than they did last week against Inter. Although the Eagles managed to end Inter’s seven-game unbeaten away run, they will need to restart immediately if they hope to finish the championship strongly.

Lazio is currently facing some problems in midfield due to the uncertainties surrounding the conditions of Cataldi and Vecino, while Milan is assessing the fitness of Tomori.

Roma vs Inter | Serie A (06.05.2023, 15:00)

On the 34th day of Serie A, one of the highly anticipated matches is the Roma-Inter game scheduled for Saturday, just after the Milan-Lazio match. This game is crucial in determining the fourth position in the Champions League, which is currently held by Inter with a 2-point lead over Roma. Roma is coming off a draw on a challenging pitch against Monza, which is the second consecutive draw after the one against Milan at the Olimpico. However, the constant injuries to their players are causing concern for José Mourinho. El Shaarawy is the latest addition to the injury list and is likely to miss the rest of the season due to an injury.

Meanwhile, Simone Inzaghi’s Inter seems to be in a positive moment with three consecutive victories, scoring 12 goals against Empoli, Lazio, and Verona, and taking back the fourth position. However, both teams need to manage their energy as they have upcoming European commitments. In the first leg, Roma won 3-1 at San Siro, giving them an advantage in case of equal points.

There is a good chance that both Inter Milan and Roma will find the back of the net, which will make for a game that is really competitive.

On the basis of this, we anticipate a close match with a score that ends up being 1-1 after the whole 90 minutes have been played.

 

 

 

 

Newcastle United vs Arsenal | Premier League (07.05.2023, 17:30)

Arsenal must aim for a clear run and four wins in the final stretch of the season, while hoping for Manchester City to drop points in their hectic schedule. However, their upcoming match at St. James Park against Newcastle, who currently hold the third position in the league table, is going to be a tough one. The tension will be high from the start, as Newcastle denied Arsenal a spot in the Champions League by defeating them 2-0 on May 16, 2022. As the end of the season approaches, Arsenal will need to send a message to the defending champions that they are still in the race to win the Premier League in June.

Despite defeating Chelsea 3-1 on Tuesday, Arsenal will need to perform better in all areas to survive the tough environment at Gallowgate. It’s time for them to prove whether they have truly grown as a club since last year’s disappointment.

Newcastle, on the other hand, has had an impressive run since mid-March, winning 24 out of 27 possible points with only one setback against Aston Villa. Their recent victories against Southampton, Everton, and Tottenham, with a 6-1 scoreline including a 5-0 lead at halftime, have caught the attention of many observers. Newcastle boasts a reliable starting lineup, talented individuals in each position, and numerous offensive threats, including Joe Willock, who hopes to make an impact against his former club with his new teammates.
