Bournemouth vs Arsenal | Premier League (30.09.2023, 16:00)

The Premier League is back after a round of midweek Carabao Cup fixtures, and for matchday seven, we have Bournemouth, currently in 17th place, hosting Arsenal, who are sitting in fifth place. Bournemouth is still searching for their first league win of the season, having drawn three and lost three of their first six fixtures. This places the Cherries just two points above the relegation zone early in the season. Their only victories so far have come in the EFL Cup, with their most recent win being a 2-0 home victory over Stoke in round three. Bournemouth’s last league outing resulted in a 3-1 away loss to Brighton last weekend. They will return to the Vitality Stadium for this match but face a tough challenge against last season’s Premier League runners-up. Bournemouth came close to securing three points at this ground against Chelsea and West Ham, two games that Andoni Iraola’s men could have won on another day.

Arsenal, on the other hand, were the best away team in the Premier League last season, with 12 wins, three draws, and four losses from their 19 away trips. They’ve continued their strong away form into the 2023/24 campaign with two wins in their first two away games. Arsenal secured a 1-0 away win over Brentford in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, with manager Mikel Arteta rotating his starting 11 to give players some needed rest. Prior to that result, Arsenal played a thrilling North London Derby at home, which ended in a 2-2 draw. The Gunners will be eager to bounce back with a win in this fixture, as their fans might feel like they lost two points in the derby.

Keeping clean sheets has been a rare occurrence for Bournemouth in recent times. In fact, Bournemouth has been unable to prevent their opponents from scoring in 5 of their last 6 matches, conceding a total of 12 goals during this period.

 

Arsenal WDWWWD

Arsenal will head into this match fresh from a 1-0 victory over Brentford in the EFL Cup.

Wolves vs Manchester City | Premier League (30.09.2023, 16:00)

Premier League leaders Manchester City are looking to maintain their perfect start to the new season as they face Wolverhampton Wanderers, who currently sit 16th in the table, a significant 14 points behind City. The league leaders will be eager to bounce back from their Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Newcastle United on Wednesday, although they fielded a weakened lineup in that match. This upcoming period is crucial for Pep Guardiola’s side, with two Champions League games on the horizon and Premier League matches against Arsenal, Brighton, and Manchester United.

Manchester City is riding high with six consecutive wins and a two-point lead at the top of the Premier League table. They have displayed their dominance away from home with victories at Burnley, Sheffield United, and West Ham United, scoring seven goals in those matches. Impressively, they have lost only one of their last 12 away league fixtures.

In contrast, Wolverhampton Wanderers find themselves just three points clear of the relegation zone. They’ve played more games than two of the teams in the bottom three, namely Luton Town and Burnley. Last weekend, they could only manage a 1-1 draw at Luton Town, giving the home side their first point of the league season. While Wolves have shown promise in some of their performances this season, they’ve struggled to turn them into consistent wins. Their sole league victory came with a 1-0 win against Everton. However, their home form has been less convincing, with defeats to both Brighton and Liverpool and seven goals conceded.

Considering the form and quality of both teams, we predict that Manchester City will secure the victory, leading at both half-time and full-time.

Girona vs Real Madrid | La Liga (30.09.2023, 18:30)

The surprise leader of La Liga, Girona, faces a challenging test as they host Real Madrid. Notably, Girona is currently undefeated, with six consecutive victories after drawing with Real Sociedad on the opening day of the season. Their impressive winning streak has been accompanied by a high average of goals scored. They achieved notable wins against Sevilla and, in a midweek match, a comeback victory against Villarreal. However, they have faced challenges in keeping clean sheets.

Facing them is Real Madrid, who are aiming to secure the top spot in the league. Real Madrid will have Vinícius Junior back in the starting lineup, as he made a return to the pitch in the 2-0 win over Las Palmas after being absent in the 3-1 defeat against Atlético Madrid the previous week. With their attacking arsenal back in full force, including Joselu and Bellingham, Real Madrid will have more options in front of goal.

This match promises to be an exciting encounter, with Girona’s impressive form and Real Madrid’s offensive prowess set to clash.
