Gremio no match for Zidane’s Real

It is difficult to see anything but a third Club World Cup triumph in four years for Real Madrid when they take on Gremio in this year’s final. No South American team have won the competition since Corinthians beat Chelsea in 2012. Real have won the trophy twice after that game while Bayern Munich and […]

Arnautovic to come back to haunt Stoke

David Moyes has added some steel to the West Ham side and they should be good enough to beat Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday. The Hammers were abject when losing 4-0 at Everton just over a fortnight ago, but since then they have troubled Manchester City before eventually losing 2-1, beaten Chelsea […]

In-form Son to shine for Spurs

Heung-Min Son has been in scintillating form for Tottenham recently and the South Korean can make the difference when Brighton visit Wembley on Wednesday. The 25-year-old has netted in his last three appearances for Mauricio Pochettino’s side and is 17/4 to score the first goal against the free-falling Seagulls, who are now 11/4 to be […]

No derby joy for Pep or Big Sam

Manchester United can bring the Premier League title race to life by beating local rivals Manchester City on Sunday while Liverpool should continue their excellent recent run by seeing off Everton at Anfield. Jose Mourinho’s team start the match eight points behind City, who slumped to their first defeat of the campaign in midweek, albeit […]

Robins to enjoy that Friday feeling

Bristol City can make it three wins in a row by stunning stuttering Sheffield United at Bramall Lane in the Championship’s game of the weekend. Neither City nor the Blades were expected to be challenging for promotion as the campaign nears the halfway point but they are level on points in third and fourth places […]

Dour Red Star can end Cologne’s European adventure

Arsenal may have already confirmed their place in Monday’s draw for the last 32 of the Europa League but second spot in Group H is still up for grabs. Red Star Belgrade are currently in pole position and can seal a place in the knockout stages by beating Cologne, who kept their own hopes of […]

Rampant Reds to swat Spartak aside

Free-scoring Liverpool can confirm their place in the last 16 of the Champions League by easing to victory against Spartak Moscow on Wednesday. Since being held to a goalless draw by Manchester United in mid-October, Jurgen Klopp’s side have scored in 10 successive matches in all competitions, firing home 33 goals in the process. They […]

Southgate keen to avoid Group of Death

The start of the World Cup is now less than 200 days away and Moscow’s State Kremlin Palace will host the draw for the 21st staging of the competition on Friday. The teams that have made it to the World Cup finals in Russia have been sorted into four pots of eight with the hosts […]

Stuttering Spurs may have to settle for draw

There should be plenty of goals at the King Power Stadium as Tottenham attempt to get back on track by beating Leicester City. Both teams to score in the match can be backed at 10/13 while the odds on there being over 3.5 goals is available at 19/10. Spurs have only won one of their […]

Chelsea can secure Anfield glory

Chelsea can bring an end to Liverpool’s excellent home form by clinching a narrow victory at Anfield on Saturday afternoon. Jurgen Klopp’s side have won four and drawn two of their first six home Premier League matches this term, but they may taste defeat as the race for a top-four spot hots up. Luis Garcia’s […]
