Premier League, Bundesliga and La Liga Soccer odds are now available as we are back with our favorite European expert advice and free betting predictions. Read on for this week’s most favorable soccer picks and match analysis.

Manchester United vs. Newcastle United

Saturday, September 11, 2021 – 10:00 AM EDT at Old Trafford

  • Manchester United's previous six home EPL clashes have seen both teams score.
  • Manchester United has avoided defeat in 32 of their previous 35 EPL fixtures.
  • Newcastle is conceding an average of 2.00 goals on their travels during EPL games.
  • Manchester United has scored more than one goal in their previous 14 EPL home fixtures.

Cristiano Ronaldo Returns

It's been twelve long years since Cristiano "CR7" Ronaldo packed his bags at Old Trafford and headed to Real Madrid, but this weekend will mark his return to United in the most highly anticipated debut of the summer.

However, as the international break and Covid rules are prominent in this week's action, Ronaldo's lack of preparation could see the Portuguese superstar take a position on the bench. With that said, the elite level of talent in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad is still too much for Newcastle to handle, with or without Ronaldo.

Since the beginning of this season's campaign, Newcastle has collected a mere one point from three games, and Steve Bruce's squad is struggling in defense. Eight goals conceded with Greenwood, Ronaldo, Pogba, and Fernandes on the horizon doesn't bode well for The Magpies.

EPL Betting Picks

The previous three meetings between the two have seen Man Utd claim a combined total of eleven goals; the Red Devils have won five of their previous six fixtures versus Newcastle and are now in possession of an evolved squad.

When you consider the high tally scoring history between both teams and a Newcastle side quite capable of scoring a consolation goal, United to secure victory with three or more goals being secured seems likely.

Manchester United vs. Newcastle Score Prediction: Manchester United 3 – Newcastle 1

RB Leipzig vs. Bayern Munich

Saturday, September 11, 2021 - 12:30 PM EDT at Red Bull Arena

Goals Market Is Always Tempting in This Clash

When you're presented with two of the league's high-scoring outfits, reaching for a gamble on the over is tempting. However, goals are usually in short supply when Leipzig and Munich play one another.

And because bookmakers expect the likes of Bayern Munich to deliver a high number of goals during their Bundesliga clashes, we can regularly overlook the under market.

Historical meetings between Munich and Leipzig have provided less than four goals in 90% of their previous ten games. Julian Nagelsmann's team is implementing newly found defensive tactics that could easily prevent a four or five-goal fixture.

Bundesliga Betting Picks

You'll rarely find such great value on the under 3.5 goals market, but with the Bundesliga providing such a high scoring season in 2020/21, the market hasn't caught up with the factors we've highlighted.

An away 1-1 versus Borussia Monchengladbach is already proof that Munich can be held, and we expect another tight encounter this weekend.

The Pick

Should the Bundesliga's most celebrated team walk away with the victory, we'd expect nothing more than a 2-1 scoreline.

RB Leipzig vs. Bayern Munich Score Prediction: Leipzig 1 – Bayern Munich 1

Soccer Pick: Under 3.5 goals (-154) at Intertops

Espanyol vs. Atletico Madrid

Sunday, September 12, 2021 - 08:00 AM EDT at RCDE Stadium

Undefeated Streak to Continue

Espanyol's return to the top-flight of Spanish soccer has been underwhelming. The Catalans have lost one and drawn two since the 2021/22 La Liga start, and now, they're facing a tough fixture versus last season's champions.

Espanyol's biggest concern is goal scoring. With Diego Simone's squad coming up short in a 1-1 draw to Villareal last week, we expect a domineering victory to resume Madrid's winning ways.

The Pick

Atletico's away fixtures are always tight, and although we predict an easy three points for the reigning champions, we also anticipate another low-scoring encounter.

Espanyol vs. Atletico Madrid Score Prediction: Espanyol 0 – Atletico Madrid 1

Soccer Picks: Atletico Madrid and Under 3.5 goals (+130) at Intertops
