Bologna FC 1909 vs. Empoli FC

Saturday, September 17, 2022 – 09:00 AM EDT at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara

Team Analysis


Bologna begin their new era under new coach Thiago Motta this weekend on home soil against Empoli.

Bologna claimed their first win of the season last time out when then soon to be coach Thiago Motta took watch from the stands.

The one thing Bologna have done right this season is being a hard team to beat with 3 draws taken from their first 6 games, only losing on the road to Lazio and on the road to Ac Milan.

Bologna jumped up to 12 place after their win last time out.


Another tie specialist, Empoli opened up their campaign with 4 draws from their opening 5 games, losing last time out to Roma.

Empoli are yet without a league win and will seek one in this matchup, although their previous 15 road games isn’t exactly nice viewing with just one win, seven draws and six defeats.

Bologna FC vs. FC Empoli: Betting Odds and Pick

Bologna are a side we very much like the look of in this Serie A fixture, teams always perform a level or two above when they have a new coach as players are looking to prove themselves worthy of a starting position.

We love the fact Bologna are at home and they have Austrian striker Marco Arnautovic who netted 14 goals in 33 appearances last season and so far, he has seen 6 goals in 6 games this season.

Bologna can be bet at Serie A odds of +110 to win this game, but we are looking to cover the tie just in case these two tie specialists end up with one point a piece.

We are taking Bologna on the +0.0 handicap line of -143 at BetOnline (visit our BetOnline Review), meaning if they tie, we get a push.

Predicted Score: Bologna 1 - 0 Empoli

Soccer Pick: Bologna +0.0 (-143) at BetOnline

Olympique Lyonnais vs. Paris Saint Germain

Sunday, September 18, 2022 - 02:45 PM EDT at Parc Olympique Lyonnais

Team Analysis

Olympique Lyonnais

Seven time back-to-back champions in the early 2000’s, Lyon are sitting in 5th position thus far this season, after opening up their campaign with five undefeated games, they have since lost back-to-back games and find themselves already six points behind todays opponents PSG.

They have been the bridesmaid on three occasions since they won every league title between 20001-2008.

Former Lyon player Alexandre Lacazzete has returned to the club following five seasons with Arsenal and has netted 4 goals in 7 games since his “home”.

Paris Saint Germain

PSG have very much asserted their dominance in this league since their big money take over, winning 8 of the previous 10 league titles.

With a trio such as Neymar, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe up front, it’s easy to see why as they have scored the most league goals this season by a long shot and sit level top of the league alongside Marseille.

Although it must be said they are unlikely to sustain the same level as PSG and they will no doubt win the league again this season.

Olympique Lyon vs. PSG: Betting Odds and Pick

Both Lyon and PSG boast very attacking line-ups, combined their strikers alone have scored 32 goals in all competitions and we are less than 25% into the season.

Lyon won’t look to sit back here; this will be an open game of football and we expect goals a plenty. Takeover 3.5 goals in this Ligue 1 match of -105 at BetOnline.

Ligue 1 has been the highest scoring league in Europe’s big five.

Predicted Score: OL Lyon 2 - 2 PSG

Soccer Pick: Over 3.5 Goals (-105) at BetOnline

Atletico de Madrid vs Real Madrid CF

Sunday, September 18, 2022 - 03:00 PM EDT at Metropolitano Stadium

Team Analysis

Atletico Madrid

Atletico come into the Derby following a road loss to Bayern Leverkusen in the Champions League midweek. Diego Simeone will no doubt have his team prepared for this Madrid clash.

Atletico have had a mixed start to the season, but a win here would turn an okay start into a terrific start as they would close the gap to Real Madrid from five to two points and get to boast about a win over their closest rivals.

Real Madrid

With 5 wins from 5 games, Real Madrid already look like they are going to put pressure on Barcelona to catch them.

22 Year Old Vinicius Junior has stepped up to the plate since the injury to number one striker Karim Benzema and the Brazilian forward has netted 4 goals in 5 games, making him the team’s top goalscorer. Madrid are currently top of the league.

Atletico vs. Real: Betting Odds and Pick

Although just two of the previous 10 head-to-head have seen over 2.5 goals scored, we believe something different is in the air this time around and the top-rated sportsbooks seem to agree.

Despite it still being plus money to take both to score and over 2.5 at +110, we most definitely would have seen the same bet in the past been priced up around +130/140.

Atletico Madrid are already five points behind Real, this is a must win game, they can’t afford to sit back and play this one out for a tie, they will get left behind by winning teams.

Real Madrid are 5-0 this season on games going over 2.5 goals.

Predicted Score: Atletico de Madrid 1 1 2 Real Madrid

Soccer Pick: Both Teams to Score + Over 2.5 Goals (+120) at BetOnline
