Everton suffered their third league defeat (three in total, including the FA Cup) this week, as they were defeated 3-2 at home by Burnley in their recovery from the 19th matchday.Frank Lampard’s side remained fourth from the bottom and now have just one point clear of Burnley. On the other hand, the Toffees will see it in the next match with Manchester United, who, on the other hand, are still chasing the Champions League position with 3 points behind the duo of Tottenham-Arsenal at the moment.
Ralf Rangnick’s Red Devils have scored points at home in their last two games, and in the most recent, they drew 1-1 against Leicester City. Everton have a long list of injuries: André Gomes, Towsend, Davies, Mina, and Patterson. Manchester United will be without Cavani in attack, while Greenwood is disqualified.
Everton will be trying to improve on their recent performance, which saw them lose 3-2 to Burnley in the Premier League.
In the game, Everton had 49 percent control and 16 shots on goal, four of which were on target. Everton’s only player to score was Richarlison (18′, 41′). Burnley had 13 shots on goal, four of which were on target against their opponents. Burnley’s goals came from Nathan Collins (12′), Jay Rodriguez (57′), and Maxwel Cornet (85′).

Everton vs Manchester United Predicted XI
Everton Predicted XI: Pickford, Godfrey, Coleman, Keane; Mykolenko, Doucoure, Allan, Van de Beek; Gray, Calvert-Lewin; Richarlison.
Manchester United City Predicted XI: De Gea; Shaw, Dalot, Maguire, Telles; Fred, McTominay; Fernandes, Sancho, Pogba; Ronaldo.
No calculations are made in Goodison Park between two teams that must win in order to pursue their respective goals. The last two head-to-heads, both at Old Trafford, ended in a draw, with both teams scoring.
Everton will have to play well to get anything against a Manchester United team that we believe will score at least one goal.
With everything in mind, we believe Manchester United will gain a hard-fought 0-1 victory at the end of this match.
Atletico Madrid, second in La Liga with 57 points, faces Mallorca in third place. The Colchoneros arrive at the match with eight consecutive useful results and six victories in a row in La Liga, the last being a 4-1 against Alaves.
It is a crisis instead for Mallorca, who have lost all their last seven games, including the direct clash at the weekend against Getafe 1-0.
The number of 0 scores has become a frequent motif in recent Mallorca games.
In their previous sextet of matches, a gamble on both sides scoring would have been a loser in five of them.
Mallorca hasn’t won at home in the league in the last three games.
Atletico Madrid WWWWWWL
Atlético Madrid’s defenders have now conceded four goals in their last six games. During the same time frame, they have scored 11 goals on their own.

Atletico Madrid Predicted XI: Oblak; Savic, Mandava, Monteiro; Llorente, Vrsaljko, Kondogbia, Koke, Lodi; Griezmann, Felix.
Looking at these two sides, we believe Mallorca will have to work hard to score goals against an Atlético Madrid side that will most certainly win. Mallorca have had the worst team in La Liga for two months. Seven defeats in a row is hard to digest, especially if they lead you to be third after a championship that has so far been quiet.
The hosts seem to be destined for an eighth consecutive knockout because they are facing the best team in La Liga, together with Barcelona. Simeone has re-energized his team at a critical moment in the season, propelling them back to second place with six consecutive victories in the league, including an elimination of Manchester United in the Champions League quarterfinals.
Even though they lost to City in the Champions, we’re aiming for a close contest, with Atlético Madrid winning 0-1 at the end of it.
After the resounding 4-0 defeat in the Clasico, Real Madrid resumed their march towards the title in Spain. Ancelotti’s team won 2-1 against Celta Vigo and are twelve points clear of the trio of runners-up (Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, and Sevilla).
La Liga is therefore approaching, and the next step will be against Getafe, a team that, with 32 points, is quite calm. In fact, they are six points ahead of the relegation zone. The success against Mallorca in the direct clash has given oxygen to a team that had not won for four rounds.
Real Madrid WWWLWW
Real Madrid supporters will be hoping for a repetition of their previous result, a 1-3 Champions League victory over Chelsea.
During the game, Real Madrid had 43 percent possession and eight shots on goal, five of which were on target. Karim Benzema scored three goals for Real Madrid (21′, 24′, and 46′). Chelsea, on the other hand, had 20 shots on goal, five of which were on target. Chelsea’s goal came from Kai Havertz (40′).
Real Madrid have held a clean sheet only a few times in recent years. Real Madrid’s defense has been breached in five of their past six matches, resulting in the loss of eight goals.
Getafe will enter the match fresh off a 1-0 La Liga victory against Mallorca in their previous match.
In the game, Getafe had 62 percent possession and 16 shots on goal, three of which were on target. Borja Mayoral (82′) was Getafe’s only player to score. RCD Mallorca, on the other hand, had seven shots on goal, one of which was on target.
Getafe have scored a fairly low number of goals in five of their last six meetings with their opponents. In that span, the overall average number of goals per game was 1.83.

Real Madrid: (Luka Jovic, Isco and Eden Hazard)
Getafe: clean bill of health and no suspension concerns.
Real Madrid vs Getafe Predicted XI
Real Madrid Predicted XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Valverde, Vinicius, Benzema.
Getafe Predicted XI: Soria; Suarez, Djene, Mitrovic, Cabaco, Olivera; Yokuslu, Villar, Alena; Unal, Mayoral.
It’s difficult to imagine Los Blancos conceding a goal against their next league opponent. Ancelotti’s defense is the best in the tournament, and after having suffered four slaps from Barcelona, they started to improve.
No victory and only eight goals in the whole championship and average relegation points make us think that the guests will probably only try to limit the damage, focusing much more on the defensive phase than on the offensive one. At full-time, we expect Real Madrid to win by a comfortable 2-0 score.
Seven weeks before the end of the Premier League 2021–2021, Manchester City and Liverpool arrive at a direct match, which could also mean the match for the title, because the two teams are in the top two places of the tournament, only one point apart.
Both teams played their Champions League quarter-final matches this week, winning, but at the end of extremely different matches: City did it at home against Atletico Madrid 1-0 in a match in which the Spaniards lined up with the “5-5-0,” as coach Pep Guardiola said in post-match interviews, while the Reds outclassed Benfica at da Luz 3-1 in a much more fun game.
Manchester City, who won 2-0 at Burnley in the last league game, will not have Ruben Dias, while Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, who won 2-0 in the last Premier round at home against Watford, have only Fabinho’s doubts.
Manchester City WDDWWW
Manchester City are looking to build on their recent 1-0 Champions League victory over Atlético Madrid.
In the game, Manchester City had 71 percent possession and 15 shots on goal, two of which were on target. Kevin De Bruyne (70′) scored for Manchester City. Atlético de Madrid, on the other hand, had 0 shots on goal, with 0 of them on target.

Liverpool Predicted XI: Alisson, Robertson, Van Dijk, Matip, Alexander-Arnold, Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago, Mane, Jota, Salah.
If it is not a definitive showdown, we are close to it. The first leg ended 2-2, and, as in the previous two, both teams scored. This is the option we’ve chosen for what promises to be one of the most exciting matches of the weekend, not just in England, but around the world.
We believe Liverpool has the ability to score against this Manchester City lineup, but it may not be as many as they expect.
After 90 minutes, we predict a 2-1 victory for Manchester City.
Under Xavi, Barcelona are on the right track once again. They will be looking for their seventh straight La Liga victory when they face local rivals Levante this weekend.
Barcelona are still 12 points behind Real Madrid in the standings and appear unlikely to challenge for the title in the final weeks of the season, but they could be ready to pounce if the league leaders make a mistake between now and May.
Barcelona’s most recent league victory came last weekend at the Nou Camp, when they beat Sevilla 1-0 to improve their chances of finishing in the Champions League places this season.
At this point in the season, it’s a whole different situation for Levante, as it’s becoming increasingly clear that they’ll be relegated. They are currently 19th in the rankings, six points adrift of safety, with only eight games remaining in Spain.
Levante fans will be hoping for a repeat of their 2-0 La Liga victory over Villarreal.
Levante had 41% possession and 13 shots on goal, four of which were on target, in the encounter. Levante scored through José Luis Morales (69′, 91′). Villarreal CF, on the other hand, had 13 shots on goal, two of which were on target.
Levante hasn’t had any trouble scoring recently, scoring in each of their last six games.
During that time, they have amassed 9 points and given up a total of 8.
Barcelona will enter the match on the back of a 1-0 La Liga victory over Sevilla in their most recent match.
In the game, Barcelona had 55% possession and 19 shots on goal, six of which were on target. Barcelona’s only player to score was Pedri (72′). Sevilla had eight shots on goal, three of which were on target.
Barcelona’s “goals against” tally has dropped to two from their previous six matches thanks to a string of solid performances from their defense. During the same time frame, they have scored 13 goals on their own.

Levante vs Barcelona Predicted XI
Levante Predicted XI: Cardenas; Pubill, Rober, Vezo, Caceres, Son; Malsa, Pepelu, Bardhi; Morales, Roger
Barcelona Predicted XI: Ter Stegen; Alves, Araujo, Piqué, Alba; F. De Jong, Busquets, Pedri; Dembélé, Aubameyang, Ferran.
Away from the Camp Nou, Barcelona are putting up impressive numbers and it is impossible not to bet on their victory. The Blaugrana have amply demonstrated that they want to get to the right track, and to do so, they must also impose themselves on this match.
In our opinion, Levante will have enough chances to score against FC Barcelona, but we doubt that this will be enough to keep them from falling behind. As extra time expires, FC Barcelona holds a close 1-2 advantage.
