Mr. Predictor looks at the biggest matches across Europe

Hi gang! Here are my tips for the weekend, where I’m looking at matches across the top five leagues in Europe.

Hoffenheim v Bayern Munich – Friday 18 January – Bundesliga – BET HERE

Hoffenheim are unbeaten in their last ten Bundesliga matches, which would be more impressive if they hadn’t drawn the last six of those. Bayern are chasing Dortmund at the top of the table and have won five in a row in the league. They’ve actually lost their last two away games at Hoffenheim, but they beat the hosts 3-1 at home in August and I have to back them on Friday.

Match Tip: Over 2.5 Goals (Odds: 1.40)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Hoffenheim 1 v 2 Bayern Munich

Real Madrid v Sevilla – Saturday 19 January – La Liga – BET HERE

This is a big game for Real Madrid, who are just one place behind Sevilla in La Liga. They’re in better form though, with three win in their last five league games, while they’ve only dropped points three times at home this season. Sevilla have only won one of their past six league games and have lost on their last 11 visits to the Bernabeu. I have to back a Home Win.

Match Tip: Real Madrid Win (Odds: 1.70)
Mr. Predictor’sVerdict: Real Madrid 3 v 1 Sevilla

Arsenal v Chelsea – Saturday 19 January – Premier League – BET HERE

If Arsenal lose this, they can wave goodbye to any hopes they had of finishing in the top four, especially considering Manchester United’s recent form. They’ve won eight of their 11 home league games this season though, and have only lost once in their past five matches against Chelsea at the Emirates. The Blues have won three of their last five league games but have been lacklustre in recent games against Tottenham and Newcastle. I’m going for a Draw here.

Match Tip: Over 2.5 Goals (Odds: 1.65)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Arsenal 2 v 2 Chelsea

RB Leipzig v Borussia Dortmund – Saturday 19 January – Bundesliga – BET HERE

Dortmund are still top of the Bundesliga with eight wins in their last ten matches, but this might be their toughest test yet. RB Leipzig have been brilliant at home this season with eight wins and two draws so far in the league. Both sides have each won two of the five previous meetings between the pair, and I expect an even game. I’ll go for a Draw.

Match Tip: Both Teams to Score (Odds: 1.55)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: RB Leipzig 1 v 1 Borussia Dortmund

Napoli v Lazio – Sunday 20 January – Serie A – BET HERE

Napoli are second in the league and have won four of their past five games overall. They’re also unbeaten at home this season in all competitions, so this is a really tough game for Lazio, who are 12 points behind the hosts. Lazio haven’t had much luck against the big teams this season and have lost their last four games against Partenopei. I’m backing a Home Win on Sunday.

Match Tip: Napoli Win (Odds: 1.85)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Napoli 2 v 1 Lazio

Saint-Etienne v Lyon – Sunday 20 January – Ligue 1 – BET HERE

This derby always has the potential to get fiery, as happened last season in this fixture when Saint-Etienne had a man sent off. They ended up losing 5-0 but they had won their three previous home games against their rivals. They’re now unbeaten at home this season with eight win in ten games, while Lyon have only won three of their last ten matches. I can see this being a Draw.

Match Tip: Both Teams to Score (Odds: 1.55)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Saint-Etienne 1 v 1 Lyon
