European League Show; Previews, Predictions, and Betting Forecast
Chelsea have struggled to obtain scrappy wins in both their league games so far. While it might be good for their position on the log, one can’t help but wonder, for how long will that work? They take on a Burnley side who were merciless over Liverpool last weekend. Chelsea have never lost a league game against Burnley. What is more, they have gone on to become champions in Burnley’s last two stints in the EPL. It is hard to see them losing this one.
Zouma is still out for Chelsea while Willian is doubtful. Burnley’s Barnes is injured.
Kickoff: Saturday, 3pm
Venue: Stamford Bridge (Chelsea)
Referee: Mark Clattenburg
Prediction: Chelsea are at home. Burnley are new. Chelsea to win.
Like a side haunted, Arsenal are yet to register a win in the league and find themselves five points behind the top. They visit a Watford side that fought valiantly last weekend before succumbing to Chelsea. Watford have never obtained a point off Arsenal in the league, but going by Arsenal’s recent poor performance, that record might be on the verge of been altered.
Isaac Success is doubtful for Watford. Arsenal’s Gabriel, Mertesacker, Iwobi and Ramsey are out of it.
Kickoff: Saturday, 3pm
Venue: Vicarage Road (Watfrord)
Referee: Kevin Friend
Prediction: Arsenal have to improve their play if they must win this one. Else I see a draw.
Manchester United began the campaign with a clear statement of intent; they are here for the title. Joint top with their City neighbour’s, they will be looking to make it three in three when they visit newly promoted Hull City who are, surprisingly, looking for their third in three as well. But they haven’t beaten United in their last 11 and this gives United an edge.
Bruce, Dawson, McGregor and Odubajo are all injured for Hull while Schweinsteiger is doubtful for United.
Kickoff: Saturday, 5.30pm
Venue: KCOM Stadium (Hull City)
Referee: Jonathan Moss
Prediction: Hull have shown how lethal they are this season so it would be dicey to write them off. I see United with a slight win though.
Real Madrid’s biggest goal this season would be to usurp Barcelona. They have started well enough after that 3-0 thumping of Real Sociedad. They will look to continue in that fashion as they host Celta Vigo who aren’t having the best start to their season and who they have beaten eight times in the last nine. It would be interesting to see how it plays out.
Goalkeeper Keylor Navas is injured for Madrid while Ronaldo, Benzema and Ronaldo are doubtful. Blanco and Beauvue are out for Celta.
Kickoff: Saturday, 7.15pm
Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (Madrrid)
Referee: Ricardo de Burgos
Prediction: Madrid should make easy walk of this.
Where They Left off
Barcelona continued in the same manner they ended last season with that 6-2 demolition of Real Betis. They will be looking to continue in such a brutal fashion when they visit Athletic Bilbao whom they have beaten in their last five league encounters.
Bilbao’s Rico, Elustondo and Sola are out. Iniesta and Mathieu are out for Barcelona while Neymar is doubtful.
Kickoff: Sunday, 7.15pm
Venue: San Mames Barrria (Bilbao)
Referee: Antonio Mateu
Prediction: Barcelona are still on fire. They should take this one.
