BayArena

Top of the Table Encounter

The midweek Bundesliga clash between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Leverkusen is of high importance. A crucial three points could be stolen from either side in return diminishing title-chasing hopes for the loser.

Forth placed Dortmund have seen unpredictable performances this term but have still maintained enough points to continue their battle for Bundesliga supremacy. Their recent bad luck has turned around, and now they are back in form with three wins in their previous five domestic matches.

On the flip side, Leverkusen's form is a concern as they have suffered their only three defeats of the season in the previous four weeks.

Form, Mentality, Bundesliga Odds and Trends

  • Leverkusen is undefeated at half time in their previous twenty-four fixtures.

  • Leverkusen has averaged two goals per game at home this season.

  • Leverkusen has not lost in twenty of their last twenty-four home games.

  • Dortmund has been level at half time in their previous six Bundesliga fixtures.

  • Dortmund has avoided defeated in twelve of their last fourteen away fixtures in the Bundesliga.

Final Thoughts| Bundesliga Betting Tips

Goals will be expected in this meeting, so don't hesitate in the goals betting market; these two sides have witnessed over 2.5 goals in their previous four encounters.

The available odds for either team are fare because the outcome is a tossup, both teams have dealt with questionable form whilst maintaining a positive goal scoring record.

English Premier League

Manchester City vs. Aston Villa

Wednesday 20th January, 08:00 PM Kick-Off

Etihad Stadium

Slow Comeback

Manchester City has had a slow start early on this season, but it had not taken much time before the reigning EPL titleholders returned to fighting form. Now just one win away from reclaiming top spot, a woeful Aston Villa side stands in their way of accomplishing this.

Villa first-team squad members will have missed nineteen days game time when they field the pitch this week, COVID-19 has disrupted their schedule, and now they have three games in hand to pull their 10th place position closer to the top – the problem is, Manchester City are unstoppable right now.

Final Thoughts| EPL Betting Tips

The home side should be confident with their recent performances, an eight-game win streak for Pep Guardiola and his team won't be easy to tackle for a rusty Villa side.

City has won seven of their previous eight games to nil on top of their great form – they are not allowing teams to touch the ball, let alone score.

Manchester City vs Aston Villa Score prediction: Manchester City 3 – Aston Villa 0

Best Bet: Manchester City win and under 3.5 goals at 2.20 [+120] at PaddyPower (visit our PaddyPower Review)

Spanish La Liga

Villarreal vs. Granada

Wednesday 20th January, 10:30 PM Kick-Off

Estadio de la Cerámica

Battle for Europe

Villarreal is fourth in the La Liga with a minor two losses this season, I would not expect them to challenge the title, but Champions League qualification must be on the minds. Villarreal has maintained a position in the top four all season long and will be looking to defend their space this week.

Granada has placed just three places below Villarreal in La Liga and would not mind taking the UCL qualification position from their opponents. The main difference between the two teams are losses, Granada has suffered eight losses this season as Villarreal attempt to capitalise on this factor.

Form, Mentality, La Liga Odds and Trends

  • Villarreal has scored twenty-six goals from eighteen games this term.

  • Villarreal concedes less than one goal per game.

  • Granada's previous three away games have produced under 2.5 goals.

  • Granada average 0.63 goals per game when playing away from home.

Final Thoughts| La Liga Betting Tips

Villarreal's secret this term can be found in their impressive own half play; they've conceded less than one goal per game in the 2020/2021 season instead of Granada's 0.63 goals per game the road.

Granada is playing well, but their away form is an issue. With just seven points claimed from a potential twenty-four on the road this season, we should anticipate another home victory for Villarreal midweek.

Villarreal vs. Granada Score prediction: Villarreal 2 – Granada 0
