Predictions 20 – 23.10.2023

Manchester City vs Brighton | Premier League (21.10.2023, 16:00)

Brighton and Hove Albion have the opportunity to climb above Manchester City in the Premier League standings if they secure a victory at the Etihad. Currently sitting sixth in the league, they are just two points behind the home side. Remarkably, the Seagulls have scored more league goals this season than City. However, their defense tells a different story, with only the three teams in the relegation zone conceding more goals. Brighton has allowed ten goals in their last three league and cup fixtures, including six against Aston Villa. Such defensive performance does not bode well for their chances in this game. Moreover, they have gone 15 games without keeping a clean sheet, which adds to their concerns. History is not on their side either, as they have lost all six away visits to City since gaining promotion to the Premier League, making a seventh defeat seem likely.

Manchester City had a strong start to the season, winning their first six league games. However, they stumbled with losses to Wolves and Arsenal. A victory against Brighton could propel them back to the top of the Premier League. The Blues have not suffered three consecutive league defeats since 2016. They are more comfortable playing at home, having won all three of their Premier League home games this season. In fact, they have been unbeatable in their 13 home league fixtures this year, securing victories in every single one. With an impressive home record against Brighton, they are likely to be confident of getting back to winning ways in the Premier League. Facing a vulnerable Brighton defense, a home win this Saturday seems highly probable.

Chelsea vs Arsenal  | Premier League (21.10.2023, 18:30)

In a highly anticipated match set for this Saturday, Chelsea will play host to their “neighbors,” Arsenal, at Stamford Bridge in London. This clash is one of the standout fixtures of the 9th round in the English Premier League.

Mauricio Pochettino ‘s team has struggled to meet the expectations, following a less than stellar path in comparison to the previous season. Currently, they find themselves in the 11th position on the league table with 11 points, trailing the top 4 teams by six points and level with Fulham. Chelsea’s recent form, however, has shown signs of improvement. In their last outing, they defeated Burnley 4-1 on the road, marking their third consecutive victory – a feat they haven’t achieved in the 2023/24 season.

On the other hand, Arsenal currently occupies the 2nd spot in the league table with 20 points, on par with Tottenham and holding a two-point lead over Manchester City and a three-point lead over Liverpool. After a defeat to Lens (1-2) in the Champions League, Mikel Arteta’s team bounced back with a victory in the league and a notable win against defending champions Manchester City in the highly-anticipated “classic” match at the Emirates, with a final score of 1-0.

Our prediction is a closely contested match ending in a 0-1 victory for Arsenal after the full 90 minutes.

Sevilla vs Real Madrid | La Liga (21.10.2023, 18:30)

Sevilla and Real Madrid are set to face off in one of the standout matches of LaLiga EA Sports on matchday ten. Sevilla is currently grappling with a crisis of results, which has even led to a coaching change, with José Luís Mendilíbar being dismissed. The appointment of Diego Alonso as the new coach might infuse some fresh energy into the team. Sevilla is determined to secure a win as they haven’t tasted victory in their last three games, including one in European competition. Presently, they find themselves in fourteenth place with just eight points.

On the other hand, Real Madrid enters the Pizjuán in high spirits after a resounding 4-0 victory against Osasuna. This win marks their fourth consecutive triumph, propelling Carlo Ancelotti’s side to the top of the LaLiga EA Sports standings with twenty-four points, just two points behind the second-placed Girona.
