West Ham United vs Liverpool | Premier League (26.04.2023, 20:45)

West Ham United and Liverpool enter this match having won their last Premier League matches, making it one of their most important of the season. Liverpool is nine points off the top four and seeking three points, while the hosts are six points clear of the relegation zone. West Ham sit in 13th, but if they win their game in hand, they will pass Crystal Palace and go up to 12th. The Hammers finest run of the season precedes this match. After beating Bournemouth 4-0, they haven’t lost in five matches. Their lone loss in their last 10 matches was a 5-1 loss to Newcastle United earlier in the season. West London has undergone a spectacular turnaround, improving its offense. They scored 10 goals in their last three outings. However, in their last four matches, they have only kept one clean sheet; their last three have produced more than 2.5 goals; and in four of their last six games, both teams have scored.

Liverpool are coming off a hard-fought 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest and have only lost once in 13 matches against West Ham United. Darwin Nunez’s goal in October helped them win six of their last seven encounters against West Ham United. Their four-game winning streak continues with their second straight triumph. Over the last five matches, Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota have scored nine goals for Liverpool. In their last seven matches, the Reds have only kept a match scoreless once. Four of their last five matches had over 2.5 goals, and both teams scored. Liverpool has scored 11 goals in three games.

During that match, Liverpool had 81% possession of the ball and 18 shots on goal, with 6 of them finding the back of the net. Their competitors from Nottingham Forest had 11 shots on goal, with five of them landing on target. 

In the last six games that Liverpool has participated in, there have been a total of 22 goals scored, which results in a mean average of 3.67 goals scored in each contest.

West Ham United vs Liverpool Predicted XI

West Ham United Predicted XI: Fabianski; Coufal, Zouma, Aguerd, Cresswell; Soucek, Rice, Paqueta; Bowen, Antonio, Benrahma.

Liverpool Predicted XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Jones, Fabinho, Henderson; Salah, Nunez, Jota.


Prediction

We are of the opinion that West Ham United will have to put in a lot of effort if they want to score against this Liverpool team because we believe that Liverpool will put in the effort necessary to score at the other end and take the lead.

As a result, we anticipate a contest that will be very close throughout, with Liverpool emerging victorious with a score of 1-0 when the final whistle sounds.


Inter vs Juventus | Coppa Italia (26.04.2023, 21:00)

Inter hosts Juventus at the Meazza Stadium for the second leg of the Coppa Italia. 1-1 draw in the first leg, with a fuss of controversy in the final after Lukaku’s equalizer and the brawl on the pitch with the expulsions of Cuadrado, Lukaku, and Handanovic, who were absent on Wednesday. A challenge that promises sparks on the pitch, also because neither of the two teams can afford to miss the appointment with the final. In fact, Juve is back from three consecutive defeats in the league; there are 8 total in the league. In the last round, Napoli cleared the Stadium 0-1 thanks to a goal by Raspadori in full stoppage time after Di Maria’s possible goal for the black and white lead was canceled out. The positive notes for Allegri are the 15 points in the standings temporarily returned by the Guarantee College of Sport, pending the new sentence of the Federal Court of Appeal, and above all, the semi-final of the Europa League against Sevilla after eliminating Sporting in the quarterfinals. Bianconeri are still in third place in the standings, while Inter are currently in sixth place.

Nerazzurri were victorious again after not having played 4 matches in the league. 3-0 success against Empoli, which relaunched Lukaku and the Nerazzurri group after going through to the semi-finals of the Champions League. With Benfica eliminated in the quarterfinals, the derby against Milan will decide who goes to the final. Allegri has trident doubts, but in view of the Italian Cup, he initially rested against Napoli. Chiesa, Di Maria, Bremer, Fagioli, and above all, Vlahovic, should all play from the start with the doubtful Church. De Sciglio will replace the suspended Cuadrado on the right and Perin in goal. Inzaghi will relaunch Onana between the posts, while after the “grace” of Gravina, Lukaku will be regularly available.


Form Guide

Inter DDWLDW

Inter will be hoping for a victory similar to the 0-3 victory they had against Empoli in the Serie A competition.

During that game, Inter had 61% possession of the ball and 16 shots on goal, with only 4 of them finding the back of the net. On the other end of the field, Empoli had 11 shots on goal, but only three of them were successful.

During their previous six matches, Inter, under the direction of Simone Inzaghi, have scored ten goals. Six goals have been scored against them in the same amount of time that they have been on the field. 


Juventus DLWLDL

The Juventus players and fans will be hoping for a different outcome this time around after the team’s previous Serie A match against Napoli ended in a defeat.

During that match, Juventus held 35% of the possession and had 7 shots on goal, with 4 of those shots hitting the target. Napoli, on the other hand, had 17 shots on goal, with 6 of them landing on target. 

The Juventus attack has had to work very hard to score goals in their last six matches, and they have only managed to do so a paltry four times. This is not a satisfying result. During those encounters, Juve have also been subjected to a total of six goals scored against them by their opponents.


Inter vs Juventus Predicted XI

Inter Predicted XI: Onana; Darmian, Acerbi, Bastoni; Dumfries, Barella, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Dimarco; Martinez, Lukaku.

Juventus Predicted XI: Perin; Gatti, Bremer, Danilo; De Sciglio, Miretti, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Di Maria; Vlahovic.  


Prediction

According to our analysis, Juventus would be dissatisfied if they were unable to break down this Inter team; yet, it is possible that this would not be enough for them to escape losing the match.

Our prediction for the final score of this match is that Inter will emerge victorious by a score of 2-1. 


Manchester City vs Arsenal | Premier League (26.04.2023, 21:00)

City host Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium on matchday 33 of the Premier League. Big match of the day with Arsenal in first place in the standings with 5 points ahead of the citizens, in second position but with two games to recover; Guardiola sees the virtual overtaking. The direct clash is decisive for the fate of the championship, with City coming from 5 wins in the last 6 games played, including the 3-0 in the semi-finals of the FA Cup against Sheffield Utd. While the Gunners have held back over the last month, they are coming off three consecutive draws and drew 3-3 against Southampton in their last game. Cross challenge between the two strikers: the certainty Haaland and Gabriel Jesus, who has taken back the starting shirt after the long injury. Guardiola should focus on Grealish and Mahrez as wingers, with Gundogan and De Bruyne supporting Haaland as center-forwards. Stones and Rodri in front of the defense.

On the other side, instead of the trident, Saka, Gabriel Jesus, and Martinelli In midfield, Odegaard, Partey, and Vieira have to resume the infernal rhythm of the beginning of the season, but after the elimination in the Europa League at the hands of Barcelona, they lost confidence and started to slow down in the Premier League as well. While City are proving to be a battleship with few weaknesses, they are the team that scores the most in the league but also has the second-best defense in the category, but they have two games to recover compared to the Gunners. Guardiola will play for access to the Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid after eliminating Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals with a peremptory 4-1 aggregate.  


Form Guide

Manchester City WWWWDW

Following their 3-0 victory in the FA Cup over Sheffield United, Manchester City will be hoping for a similar outcome in their upcoming match.

During that game, Manchester City held 79% of the possession and had 14 shots on goal, with 4 of them finding the back of the net. There were four shots on goal taken by Sheffield United, but only one of them was on target.

The fact that Manchester City has scored in each of their last six games demonstrates that they have been in consistent goal-scoring form recently.

They have scored a total of 18 goals over that time period, while they have only allowed 4 goals to be scored against them. 


Arsenal DWDWWD

Arsenal’s most recent match, which was a Premier League match against Southampton, ended in a 3-3 draw.

During that match, Arsenal held 74% of the possession and had 25 shots on goal, with 6 of them landing in the target area. The Saints had eight shots on goal, with six of them finding their mark.

At least three goals have been scored in each of the last five and a half Arsenal matches (out of a total of six), respectively. Throughout that time period, the overall average number of goals scored in each match was 4.33, while Arsenal scored an average of 2.67 goals per game throughout that time period.


Manchester City vs Arsenal Predicted XI

Manchester City Predicted XI: Ederson; Akanji, Dias, Laporte; Stones, Rodri; Mahrez, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Grealish; Haaland.

Arsenal Predicted XI: Ramsdale; White, Holding, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Jesus.


Prediction

We believe that Manchester City will enjoy the majority of possession and should be able to convert a number of their opportunities into goals.

On the other hand, Arsenal may have a difficult time reaching the back of the goal, although we do believe that they have a chance to earn a point for themselves during the course of this competition.

As a result, we anticipate that Manchester City will cruise to an easy victory by a score of 3-1 when the game is over.


Rayo Vallecano vs Barcelona | La Liga (26.04.2023, 22:00)

Rayo Vallecano and Barcelona will face each other in this last game of La Liga Santander on Wednesday. The Madrid team comes to this game after conceding a defeat against Real Sociedad by two goals to one in their last match, making them only add three points from the last nine. In this way, Andoni Iraola’s men are placed in ninth place with 40 points, with the objective of remaining practically achieved and having had a great season.

For their part, Barca will visit Vallecas after achieving a long-suffering victory against Atlético de Madrid at home by a goal to nil. Ferran Torres’s goal was enough to get the three points after two consecutive draws and thus continue to maintain the eleven-point lead over Real Madrid. Thus, Xavi Hernández’s men remain the undisputed leaders with 76 points and are getting closer to achieving a new league title. 


Form Guide

Rayo Vallecano LDDLWL

After suffering a 2-1 defeat to Real Sociedad in their most recent La Liga match, Rayo Vallecano will be eager to avoid a similar outcome in this one as well.

During that match, Rayo Vallecano had 39% possession of the ball and 7 shots on goal, with only 2 of them finding the back of the net. Real Sociedad had seven shots on goal, but only one of them was successful in hitting the target.

Recent performances by Rayo Vallecano have not been great in terms of preventing goals from their opponents. On the other hand, they have done enough to capitalize on the scoring opportunities they have created for themselves. In their most recent run of six matches, Rayo Vallecano has scored goals in five of those matches but has also given up goals in all six of those matches.

Going into this match, Rayo Vallecano hadn’t lost to Barcelona in the league in any of their previous three matches against the Catalan giants.   


Barcelona WWLDDW

The previous encounter for Barcelona was a 1-0 victory over Atlético Madrid in La Liga, and they enter this match with that victory under their belt.

During that game, Barcelona held possession of the ball for 62% of the time and had 13 shots on goal, with 4 of them finding the target. Atlético Madrid had a total of 12 shots on goal, only three of which were on target.

In recent encounters, it has been clear that there is a pattern in which at least one team does not manage to score when Barcelona is participating in the game. When looking at their most recent six games, we can see that it has happened five times within that span. During those matches, Barcelona’s opponents have scored a combined total of five goals, while the Catalan club has scored seven.

In the three league matches that came before this one, Barcelona played away from home and emerged victorious in all of them.

 

Rayo Vallecano vs Barcelona Predicted XI

Rayo Vallecano Predicted XI: Dimitrievski; Balliu, Lejeune, Catena, F. Garcia; Ciss, Valentin; Palazon, Trejo, A. Garcia; Camello.

Barcelona Predicted XI: Ter Stegen; Kounde, Araujo, Garcia, Balde; Gavi, Busquets, Kessie; Raphinha, Lewandowski, Torres.


Prediction

We are of the opinion that Rayo Vallecano will have their work cut out for them if they want to see themselves scoring against this Barcelona squad, who we are of the opinion might get a goal themselves and still come out on top.

As a result, we anticipate a competitive match with Barcelona emerging victorious with a score of 0-1 after the full ninety minutes have elapsed.


Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United | Premier League (27.04.2023, 21:15)

After an exceptional Manchester City-Arsenal match on Wednesday, April 26, 2023, the 33rd day of the Premier League offers its most assiduous followers another shock on the London side: Tottenham vs. Manchester United. It is obviously a match to follow because the reaction of the Spurs is highly anticipated after the slap received at the Magpies last Sunday, where they lost 6-1 after a 5-0 win in 20 minutes! In addition, the Champions League begins to move away from the group trained by Stellini because the latter now has 6 points behind Newcastle, who is also his opponent of the day. In front of their supporters, no missteps will be allowed because they will obviously be back after a difficult trip to St. James Park. Hoping that Spurs have found the magic formula because the football currently practiced does not allow for optimism before a kick-off…

The final sprint finally begins for the Red Devils. Qualified for the final of the FA Cup against the Citizens at the beginning of June, the men led by Erik ten Hag have only 8 games left to play in the league, including this clash in the capital of the Kingdom. Success is mandatory at the end of regulation time; at least Bruno Fernandes’ partners will be able to focus on Newcastle in order to obtain 3rd or 4th place at the end of the season. However, it would be good for the Mancunians to find their way back to the net since, during the last 180 minutes of play, the opposing goal did not shake once. It’s up to the Martial, Rashford, and Antony trio to wake up in order to hurt a defense lacking in confidence at the time these lines are written!

Tottenham Hotspur WDDWLL

After suffering a 6-1 defeat against Newcastle United in their most recent Premier League match, Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to get back on track today.

Because of this, our projection for the result of this match is that it will be a close contest that will end with the score tied at zero.
