Predictions 28 – 30.10.2023

Chelsea vs Brentford | Premier League (28.10.2023, 13:30)

The upcoming English Premier League match between Chelsea and Brentford is set to take place at Stamford Bridge. Both teams have had mixed starts to the 2023–24 season. Chelsea currently sits in the tenth position, while Brentford is in 14th.

Chelsea experienced a challenging start to the season, managing just one win in their first five league matches. During this period, they drew with Bournemouth, lost to Nottingham Forest, and recorded their only win against Luton Town. However, the Blues have shown improvement recently and enter this match with a three-game unbeaten streak. This includes a hard-fought 2-2 draw with London rivals Arsenal in their most challenging October match. Chelsea recognizes the significance of a win in this favorable fixture, given their upcoming schedule that includes matches against Spurs, Manchester City, Newcastle, Brighton, and Manchester United.

Brentford began the season promisingly, going unbeaten in their first four matches. However, they recently broke a four-match winless streak, which featured three losses and a draw, with a 3-0 victory over Burnley. Currently holding ten points after nine games, they have the opportunity to climb the table if they secure a win against Chelsea. Despite failing to win any of their last three away matches, they did beat Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge last season. Brentford is the underdog according to bookmakers, but they hope for a favorable outcome in this match.

Arsenal, currently in third place, will host the struggling Sheffield United, who sit at the bottom of the Premier League table.

Manchester United vs Manchester City | Premier League (29.10.2023, 16:30)

The upcoming Manchester Derby at Old Trafford is generating tremendous anticipation as it marks the conclusion of the tenth round of the Premier League. This is a city-wide challenge that has City as the favorites, primarily due to their strong position in the league standings.

Manchester United has been grappling with issues that have persisted in recent seasons. While they recently achieved three consecutive victories that bolstered both confidence and their league position, they find themselves in eighth place with just 15 points from nine matches. This performance is below the club’s historical standards. A significant concern is their defense, which has already conceded 13 goals, resulting in an average of one goal per game in the league. Their European campaign is also in jeopardy, as they sit in third place in their group in the Champions League, behind Bayern Munich and Galatasaray.

On the other side of Manchester, City is enjoying a strong season. They are still a dominant force in the Champions League after winning the trophy in the previous edition. Currently, they top their group with a perfect 9 points. In the Premier League, they are in second place, trailing Tottenham by just six points, having secured seven wins and suffered only two defeats. Importantly, City boasts the best defensive record in the league, having conceded just seven goals in the first nine matchdays.

Inter vs Roma | Serie A (29.10.2023, 18:00)

One of the most highly anticipated matches of Serie A’s tenth matchday is the clash between Inter Milan and AS Roma at San Siro. This fixture carries immense significance in terms of the league standings and boasts an intriguing subtext with the return of Romelu Lukaku to the Nerazzurri, potentially facing a hostile reception from the Inter fans.

Simone Inzaghi’s Inter team climbed to the top of the Serie A table following a 3-0 victory over Torino in the last round. Their fortunes were further bolstered by AC Milan’s slip-up. Inter also asserted their dominance in the Champions League by defeating Salzburg, arriving at this match with a high level of confidence.

Roma, on the other hand, has experienced an upswing in form, successfully putting the 4-1 defeat against Genoa and the Marassi debacle behind them. They have secured three consecutive victories in the league and two more in the Europa League, rekindling enthusiasm among José Mourinho’s squad. The Special One, however, won’t be on the touchline due to a suspension earned after the recent match against Monza, which Roma won dramatically in the final moments.

Previous matches between these two teams have consistently delivered thrilling spectacles. Last season, Roma secured a 2-1 victory at San Siro with goals from Paulo Dybala and Chris Smalling. However, Dybala will be absent from this match due to injury. This contest promises to be another engaging showdown between these two Serie A powerhouses.

 

Form Guide

Inter LWWDWW

Inter is heading into this match on the back of a 2-1 victory against Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League. However, the match saw some challenges in terms of possession and shot accuracy.

It’s important to note that in their recent matches, Inter has been involved in high-scoring games, with five of their last six matches seeing three or more goals. While they’ve been successful in finding the back of the net, they’ve also conceded goals, with the opposition scoring five times in the last six games.

Despite their good performance in Europe, Inter recent home form in the league hasn’t been ideal, as they have not secured a win in their last two home matches. They’ll be aiming to change that trend in their upcoming fixture.

Overall, Inter has been involved in entertaining matches with lots of goals, and it will be interesting to see how they perform in their next game.

 

Roma LWWWWW

Roma heads into this game on the back of a 2-0 victory against Slavia Prague in the Europa League. The team managed this win with a combination of good possession and efficient goal-scoring.

Roma had 46% possession and managed to get seven shots on goal, with five of them on target. Their ability to convert chances was a key factor in their success.

It’s noteworthy that Roma has been in good goal-scoring form, amassing a total of 14 goals in their last six matches. During this run, they’ve consistently found the back of the net in each game. While they’ve been scoring consistently, they’ve also conceded a total of five goals in these matches.

This suggests that Roma has been involved in high-scoring games recently, and their ability to score goals has been a key strength. As they head into their next match, they will be looking to maintain their goal-scoring form.

 

Inter vs Roma Predicted XI

Inter Predicted XI: Sommer, Pavard, Acerbi, Bastoni, Dumfries, Barella, Calhanoglu, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco, Thuram, Martinez.

Roma Predicted XI: Patricio, Mancini, Llorente, NDicka, Karsdorp, Cristante, Paredes, Aouar, Bove, Belotti, Lukaku.      

 

Prediction

In our view, Inter Milan is well-positioned to take numerous shots on goal and capitalize on their opportunities. While we believe that Roma will have their chances to score, we anticipate that they might find it challenging to do so.

As a result, we predict that Inter Milan will secure a controlled 3-1 victory by the end of the match. It promises to be an exciting game, and we’re eager to see how it unfolds.

Napoli vs AC Milan | Serie A (29.10.2023, 20:45)

On Sunday evening, Serie A’s tenth matchday features a significant showdown at the Maradona Stadium, pitting Napoli against Milan. This fixture sees the Italian champions, Napoli, who are currently facing more challenges than the previous season, taking on a resurgent Milan side. The latter has been showing positive signs with recent victories over Hellas Verona in Serie A and Union Berlin in the Champions League. Napoli currently occupies the fourth position in the Serie A standings with 17 points and has a chance to close in on the top group with a victory.

Milan, on the other hand, is seeking a comeback after facing two defeats against Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain. The Rossoneri have already relinquished the top spot in the standings to rivals Inter and are at risk of being overtaken by Juventus as well. Their priority is to rediscover their offensive prowess, which has been lacking recently, resulting in only one goal scored in the last four matches.

A noteworthy absence for Napoli is Victor Osimhen, who will be missing this fixture. Osimhen has been absent for four of the last five matches against Milan. On the other side, Milan will be without the suspended Thiaw, and there is doubt surrounding the availability of Loftus-Cheek.

This match holds great significance for both clubs, and they will be eager to secure a positive result in their pursuit of their Serie A ambitions.

 

Form Guide

Napoli WWLLWW

Napoli seems to be in good form, especially in terms of goal-scoring, as evidenced by their last result, a 1-0 victory over Union Berlin in the Champions League. In that game, Napoli had the majority of possession and managed 6 attempts on goal. While Union Berlin had their chances with 11 attempts at goal, they couldn’t find the target often.

Napoli’s recent fixtures have been full of action and goals. In their last six matches, a total of 23 goals have been scored, averaging nearly 4 goals per game. Napoli contributed 15 of these goals, showcasing their offensive capabilities. This trend suggests that Napoli is an exciting team to watch and can make things happen in front of the net.

 

AC Milan WWDWLL

AC Milan is coming off a loss in their previous Champions League fixture against Paris Saint-Germain. In that match, Milan had 38% of the possession and took 11 shots at goal, with 4 of them on target. On the other hand, Paris Saint-Germain was quite efficient, taking 13 shots with 7 on target, and they scored three goals.

It’s worth noting that AC Milan’s defense has shown promise in recent games, conceding only 4 goals in their last 6 outings. Meanwhile, their attacking line has managed to score 6 goals during the same period. This indicates that while they have the ability to score, they’ll be looking to tighten their defense in future matches.

 

Napoli vs AC Milan Predicted XI

Napoli Predicted XI: Meret, Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Souza, Olivera, Cajuste, Lobotka, Zielinski, Politano, Raspadori, Kvaratskhelia.

AC Milan Predicted XI: Maignan, Calabria, Kjær, Tomori, Hernandez, Musah, Adli, Reijnders, Pulisic, Giroud, Leão.

 

Prediction

In our opinion, it might be challenging for AC Milan to break through Napoli’s defense, and Napoli is likely to find the back of the net and take the lead.

So, we anticipate a closely contested match with a final score of 1-0 in favor of Napoli.
