Arsenal vs Burnley | Premier League (11.11.2023, 16:00)

Arsenal is gearing up to take on Burnley in their next Premier League fixture. The Gunners currently occupy the fourth position in the league standings, while Burnley is struggling down in 19th place. In Arsenal’s recent league outing, they experienced a controversial 1-0 defeat against Newcastle United. However, they swiftly rebounded with a 2-0 victory over Sevilla in the Champions League, securing their third consecutive home win with a clean sheet.

Arsenal boasts a formidable record at home, having won six out of eight matches and maintaining an unbeaten status at home this season. In the last five home games, they’ve clinched four wins with clean sheets. Mikel Arteta’s squad has consistently scored at least two goals in seven out of eight home matches this season, and they’ve only failed to score in one out of 17 matches overall.

On the other side, Burnley is grappling with their return to the Premier League, securing just one win in their initial 11 matches. They find themselves in the relegation zone, having garnered only four points out of a possible 33. Burnley’s recent form includes a 2-0 home loss to Crystal Palace, marking their fifth consecutive defeat, during which they’ve conceded at least two goals in each match. Burnley is hopeful of avoiding a fate similar to Sheffield United, who succumbed to a 5-0 loss against Arsenal in their previous encounter.

The impending match poses a substantial challenge for Burnley to climb out of the relegation zone, considering Arsenal’s good form, especially on their home.

Real Madrid vs Valencia | La Liga (11.11.2023, 21:00)

Real Madrid is set to host Valencia at the Santiago Bernabeu for the 13th round of La Liga. Real Madrid recently secured a 3-0 victory against Sporting Braga in the Champions League, bouncing back from a 0-0 draw against Rayo Vallecano in La Liga. The draw allowed Girona to take the top spot in the La Liga table, with Real Madrid in second place, trailing by two points. In the Champions League, Real Madrid has a perfect record with 12 points after the first 4 games, securing a spot in the round of 16 ahead of Napoli, Braga, and Union Berlin. The objective for Real Madrid is to reclaim the Spanish championship after finishing second last season behind Barcelona.

Valencia is currently in 8th place in the La Liga table with 5 wins, 3 draws, and 4 defeats, standing 11 points behind Real Madrid. Under Baraja’s leadership, Valencia has secured two consecutive wins, including a 1-0 victory against Granada in the last round. Although they have progressed to the next round of the Copa del Rey by defeating Logrones 2-0, they are not participating in European competitions due to their 16th-place finish last season.

Baraja has set the goal for Valencia to return to European competition, but facing Real Madrid at their home ground presents a significant challenge. The historical records favor Ancelotti’s side, and Real Madrid has not lost against Valencia at home in the last 17 matches.  

 

Form Guide

Real Madrid WWDWWD

Real Madrid will be aiming to replicate their recent success when they face Valencia. In their previous Champions League fixture, Real Madrid secured a convincing 3-0 victory against Braga. The match saw Real Madrid maintain 48% possession and register 18 attempts at goal, with 7 of them on target, while SC Braga managed 9 attempts on goal with 4 on target.

Over their last six fixtures, Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid has found the back of the net a total of 12 times, averaging 2 goals per match. Additionally, Real Madrid is currently on an impressive streak of being unbeaten in their last 10 home league matches, showcasing a strong run at their home ground.

 

Valencia LDWDWW

Valencia enters this fixture on a positive note, having secured a 1-0 victory over Granada in their recent La Liga encounter. In that match, Valencia maintained 51% possession and registered 11 attempts at goal, with 2 of them on target. Granada, on the other hand, had 6 attempts at goal with 1 on target.

Over the course of their last six matches, Rubén Baraja’s Valencia has scored a total of 8 goals, resulting in an average of 1.33 goals per game.

 

Real Madrid vs Valencia Predicted XI

Real Madrid Predicted XI: Lunin; Carvajal, Nacho, Alaba, Mendy; Valverde, Camavinga, Kroos; Bellingham; Vinicius, Rodrygo.

Valencia Predicted XI: Mamardashvili; Correia, Mosquera, Paulista, Gaya; Perez, Pepelu, Guerra, Foulquier; Lopez, Duro.      

 

Prediction

Real Madrid, given their recent form and home advantage, are expected to create ample goal-scoring opportunities against Valencia. Considering Valencia’s recent struggles in front of goal, a 2-0 victory for Real Madrid seems like a reasonable prediction.

It suggests a relatively comfortable win for Real Madrid, potentially with a clean sheet. Let’s see how the match unfolds, as football outcomes can always have an element of unpredictability.

Liverpool vs Brentford | Premier League (12.11.2023, 15:00)

The Premier League, renowned for its unpredictable nature, where titans may falter, and underdogs can ascend, sets the stage for another captivating episode in the clash between Liverpool and Brentford.

Liverpool embarked on a rollercoaster journey in this season’s Premier League. Following a disheartening 2-1 loss to Tottenham, they rallied, securing two wins and two draws in the subsequent four games. However, a lackluster performance against Luton Town last weekend resulted in the forfeiture of two crucial points.

Their campaign in the league, nonetheless, weaves an impressive narrative. Liverpool has suffered only one defeat in the last 22 Premier League games, a testament to their remarkable consistency—a hallmark of top-tier teams.

On the opposing end, Brentford exhibits glimpses of brilliance. Celebrating their third consecutive win, a thrilling 3-2 victory against West Ham, they followed this success with impressive triumphs over Burnley and Chelsea, instilling a sense of optimism.

Yet, the road to these recent victories wasn’t entirely smooth. Before this winning streak, Brentford faced a challenging phase, enduring six consecutive games without a victory, including defeats to teams like Newcastle United, Everton, and Manchester United. Despite these setbacks, they managed to salvage points through draws against Crystal Palace, Bournemouth, and Nottingham Forest.

 

Form Guide

Liverpool DWWWWD

Liverpool will be looking to return to winning ways after a 3-2 loss to Toulouse in the Europa League. In their last six matches, Liverpool has consistently scored goals, tallying 15, while conceding 5.

Liverpool has an impressive home record, being undefeated in their last 17 home league matches. This sets the stage for an intriguing match.

 

Brentford LDLWWW

Brentford enters this fixture on the back of a 3-2 victory against West Ham United in the Premier League.

In their last six matches, Brentford has scored a total of 10 goals, resulting in an average of 1.67 goals per game. This indicates their attacking prowess and sets the stage for an engaging encounter.

 

Liverpool vs Brentford Predicted XI

Liverpool Predicted XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Gravenberch, Endo, Szoboszlai; Salah, Nunez, Jota.

Brentford Predicted XI: Flekken; Ajer, Collins, Pinnock; Roerslev, Jensen, Norgaard, Onyeka, Janelt; Mbeumo, Wissa.         

 

Prediction

We believe that Brentford is capable of scoring against this Liverpool team, although perhaps not as many goals as Liverpool will score against them. Our prediction is that both teams will score, with Liverpool securing a 2-1 victory at full time.

 

Chelsea vs Manchester City | Premier League (12.11.2023, 17:30)

In the second consecutive gameweek, Chelsea takes the spotlight in the latest round of Premier League fixtures, hosting treble winners Manchester City at Stamford Bridge. Mauricio Pochettino’s return to Tottenham Hotspur on Monday culminated in an extraordinary 4-1 win. Meanwhile, the Citizens secured a place in the last-16 of the Champions League by dispatching three goals past Young Boys without a reply midweek.

After gathering just one point from two October London derbies against Brentford and Arsenal, Chelsea began November on a positive note with successive victories over Blackburn Rovers and Tottenham. However, despite these wins, the Stamford Bridge faithful find their team lingering in 10th place, trapped in the familiarity of mid-table mediocrity.

Chelsea faces a substantial gap of nine points from both the top four and the relegation zone. Their home form remains unreliable, with only one Premier League win in their last 13 matches at Stamford Bridge, which came against newcomers Luton Town. Moreover, they failed to score in three of their last four top-flight games on their home turf.

In contrast, Pep Guardiola’s squad has averaged a goal every 20 minutes in their recent Etihad clashes with Bournemouth and Young Boys, notably humiliating the former with a 6-1 victory thanks to a Jeremy Doku masterclass.

Since a loss of attacking prowess against Arsenal, the treble winners have netted 17 goals in their five consecutive wins. However, their only points dropped in the top flight this season occurred on the road, where they have just five Premier League clean sheets in 2023.

 

Form Guide

Chelsea WWDLWW

Fresh from their previous victory, Chelsea anticipates replicating their success after a resounding 4-1 triumph over Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.

Chelsea’s recent fixtures have been enthralling, marked by high-scoring encounters. In the last six games, a total of 20 goals have been tallied for both teams combined, averaging 3.33 goals per game. Impressively, Chelsea contributed significantly to this tally, accounting for 14 of these goals.

 

Manchester City LWWWWW

Manchester City enters the upcoming match on the back of a convincing 3-0 victory against BSC Young Boys in the Champions League.

In five out of the last six games featuring Manchester City, a minimum of three goals have been scored. The overall average number of goals per match during this period stands at 3.5, with Manchester City contributing an average of 2.83 goals.

As they approach this clash, Manchester City maintains an unbeaten record against Chelsea in away games, spanning the previous three league matches.

 

Chelsea vs Manchester City Predicted XI

Chelsea Predicted XI: Sanchez; James, Disasi, Silva, Colwill; Caicedo, Fernandez; Palmer, Gallagher, Sterling; Jackson.

Manchester City Predicted XI: Ederson; Dias, Ake, Gvardiol; Walker, Rodri, Kovacic, Doku; Silva, Alvarez; Haaland.       

 

Prediction

Our analysis suggests that Chelsea faces a challenging task to find the back of the net against this formidable Manchester City lineup. We anticipate that Manchester City will score and take the lead.

Therefore, our prediction leans towards a 0-1 advantage for Manchester City at the conclusion of this match.

Barcelona vs Alaves| La Liga (12.11.2023, 16:15)

Barcelona finds themselves in the midst of a week marked by highs and lows as they gear up to face Alaves in La Liga this Sunday.

Under Xavi’s management, Barcelona displayed commendable resilience in securing a victory against Real Sociedad, despite a performance that left much to be desired. However, their stumble against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League has added a layer of complexity to their journey towards the knockout stages, injecting an element of uncertainty into their campaign.

Traditionally fueled by the ambition to finish ahead of their arch-rivals Real Madrid in La Liga, Barcelona currently trails Girona by four points. The Catalans, eager to regain ground, have a chance to leapfrog Madrid, who sit just two points ahead, provided they achieve favorable results in the upcoming fixtures.

On the flip side, Alaves finds themselves positioned in 14th place, grappling with the challenges of a season characterized by adversity. With only three wins to their name so far, their fans brace for what appears to be a long and arduous campaign, hoping for a turnaround in fortunes. As Barcelona hosts Alaves, both teams carry their respective narratives, setting the stage for a compelling La Liga encounter with the potential to reshape the league standings.

 

Form Guide

Barcelona DWWLWL

Barcelona aims to rebound from their recent 1-0 Champions League defeat against Shakhtar Donetsk and return to the winning column.

Under Xavi Hernández’s guidance, Barcelona has found the net seven times in their last six outings, showcasing their attacking prowess. During the same period, they have conceded six goals, highlighting a balanced but competitive run of matches.

As they approach this fixture, Barcelona carries an impressive record against Alaves in the league, remaining undefeated in their last 11 encounters. This extended unbeaten run gives further confidence as they seek a positive outcome in the upcoming game.

 

Alaves LDDLWW

Alaves heads into this upcoming match on the heels of a 1-0 La Liga victory against UD Almería in their recent performance.

In that encounter, Alaves asserted control with 56% possession and launched 23 attempts at goal, with 3 of them finding the mark. On the other side, Almeria managed 9 attempts at goal, with 3 on target.

Having a high-scoring performance, the net has rippled 20 times in the last 6 games where Alaves took the field, resulting in an average of 3.33 goals per match. Notably, their adversaries contributed 6 goals to this overall tally.

 

Barcelona vs Alaves Predicted XI  

Barcelona Predicted XI: Ter Stegen; Cancelo, Araujo, Kounde, Balde; Gundogan, Romeu, Pedri; Raphinha, Lewandowski, Felix.

Alaves Predicted XI: Sivera; Gorosabel, Abqar, Sedlar, Lopez; Blanco, Guevara; Guridi, Hagi, Rioja; Garcia.     

 

Prediction

We anticipate that Barcelona  will likely generate a significant number of scoring opportunities and register successful shots on target.

Simultaneously, while Alaves might encounter difficulty in finding the back of the net, we do anticipate them converting at least once in the match.

As a result, our prediction leans towards a relatively comfortable 3-1 winning margin for Barcelona when the referee signals the end of the game.
