Predictions 13.05-15.05.2023

Real Madrid vs Getafe | La Liga (13.05.2023, 21:00)

Real Madrid is set to host Getafe at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday. The home team currently holds the third position in the league standings, just one point behind second-placed Atletico Madrid. However, a distracted Real Madrid team could be the chance for 18th-placed Getafe to secure a win.

Real Madrid’s recent performance hasn’t been up to par, losing two of their last three league matches. Furthermore, they are coming off a 1-1 draw against Manchester City in the Champions League semis. With the second leg of that fixture up next, coach Carlo Ancelotti could be planning for that game and not focusing on this league fixture.

Getafe, on the other hand, is in a tight battle to avoid relegation. They start this round in the relegation zone, behind Valencia on head-to-head results. However, their recent 1-0 win over Celta Vigo was massive in the context of relegation, halting a three-game losing run. It was their first win after six winless matches in the league, which could boost their hopes of improving and beating the drop.

Getafe’s attack has been one of the lowest-scoring ones in the league, with only 30 goals scored. This could be a hindrance to their hopes, especially on the road, where they haven’t won for ten league matches in a row and have lost three in a row.

Despite the odds being against them, Getafe could capitalize on Real Madrid’s distracted form and come out with a victory. However, they must improve their attack and end their winless run on the road to have a chance at beating one of Spain’s top teams.

Therefore, we predict that Real Madrid will win the game 2-0 in a controlled manner. 


Everton vs Manchester City | Premier League (14.05.2023, 15:00)

Everton pulled off a surprising 5-2 win against Brighton on Monday, which has given them hope of avoiding relegation. They start the weekend in 17th place, just outside the bottom three. However, they face a tough challenge as they host Premier League leaders Manchester City on Sunday. Even if they lose, they are likely to stay outside the relegation zone as long as Leeds United beat Newcastle United. Everton’s lead over 18th-placed Leicester City, who play Liverpool the day after this match, is two points. After this match, Everton have two games left, against Wolves and Bournemouth. Their recent home form has not been great, with only three wins since February, and their last two home games have resulted in losses with seven goals conceded.

Manchester City are one-point clear at the top of the table, with a game in hand over Arsenal. A win in this match will give them their 11th consecutive Premier League victory. They have not lost in 14 league games since their defeat to Tottenham. As they have a crucial second leg of the Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid coming up, manager Pep Guardiola might choose to rest some key players. However, City have a strong squad and could still win even with rotation. We predict that Manchester City will win and take another step towards successfully defending their Premier League title.  


Form Guide

Everton LLDLDW

In their previous Premier League game, Everton secured a 1-5 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion. Despite only having 23% possession, Everton had 10 shots on goal, with 5 on target. Brighton & Hove Albion, on the other hand, had 23 shots on goal, with 5 on target. However, Everton’s recent defensive record has been poor, conceding in 5 of their last 6 games and letting in a total of 12 goals.


Manchester City WWWWWD

In their most recent game, Manchester City drew 1-1 against Real Madrid in the Champions League. During the match, Manchester City had 56% of possession and took 10 shots on goal, with 6 of them on target. Real Madrid, on the other hand, had 13 shots on goal, with 3 of them on target. 

In their last six games, Manchester City have scored a total of 15 goals, and they have not failed to score in any of those games. However, their opponents have managed to score 4 goals during that period.

Manchester City Predicted XI: Ederson; Akanji, Dias, Laporte; Lewis, Rodri; Mahrez, Alvarez, Foden, Grealish; Haaland.


Prediction

Based on our analysis, we believe that Everton could score a goal against Manchester City, but it may not be enough to secure a win. We predict a closely contested game with Manchester City ultimately winning 2-1.


Arsenal vs Brighton | Premier League (14.05.2023, 17:30)

The upcoming match between second-placed Arsenal and seventh-placed Brighton is a must-win for the Gunners. They are currently four points behind leaders Manchester City with three games left to play in the Premier League. Although Arsenal will be hoping that Everton can take points off City earlier on Sunday, they cannot rely on that and must focus on winning their own game. In their last game, Arsenal beat third-placed Newcastle United 2-0, and they will be looking to continue that form. They have two more games after this against Nottingham Forest and Wolves, which they should also win. Arsenal have won their last two league games and have been in good form at home, with 16 points from their last six home league games and 21 goals scored.

On the other hand, Brighton will be looking to bounce back after a devastating 5-1 home loss to Everton on Monday. Although they have beaten Arsenal twice this season, they are currently in seventh place and will drop to eighth if Aston Villa beat Tottenham. Brighton have lost four of their last seven games, including the FA Cup semi-final, and two of their last three in the Premier League. With three games in hand on Villa and Tottenham, they still have a chance to move up the table, but they need to start getting points on the board. Arsenal will be confident going into this game and should be able to get the three points they need.


Form Guide

Arsenal DDDLWW

Arsenal has been consistently scoring goals, as they have found the net in each of their last six matches. They have scored a total of 13 goals during that period while conceding 12 goals. The Gunners have also been unbeaten in their last six home league matches before this game.


Brighton & Hove Albion WDLWWL

 In the last six matches that Brighton & Hove Albion have played, a total of 20 goals have been scored, averaging 3.33 goals per match. This shows that the team tends to play in high-scoring games. However, their opponents have scored 9 of those goals against them, indicating that Brighton’s defense has been conceding goals.


Arsenal vs Brighton Predicted XI

Arsenal Predicted XI: Ramsdale; White, Kiwior, Gabriel, Tierney; Odegaard, Jorginho, Xhaka; Saka, Jesus, Martinelli.

Brighton Predicted XI: Steele; Gross, Dunk, Colwill, Estupinan; Caicedo, Gilmour; Enciso, Mac Allister, Mitoma; Ferguson.


Prediction

Based on their recent form and home advantage, it seems likely that Arsenal will emerge victorious against Brighton & Hove Albion with a comfortable 3-0 margin. Brighton may struggle to score against Arsenal’s defense, and Arsenal’s consistent scoring in recent games bodes well for their chances of securing a win.
