Another weekend of exciting league football across Europe is upon us. Here’s Top 5 for the Weekend for you to consider. Bet on football here.
Bournemouth v West Ham United - Bournemouth Win - 2.45
Both Bournemouth and West Ham are aiming to bounce back from embarrassing mid-week losses in the Carabao Cup to League One teams. However, both of these teams have made a great start to the season. The Hammers are fifth in the table with 11 points while the Cherries are just one point behind in sixth. Eddie Howe’s side are unbeaten in five games in this fixture. They have won three and drawn the other two. The Cherries did the double over the Irons last season, scoring twice on each occasion.
Tottenham Hotspur v Southampton - Both Teams to Score - 1.75
With just one win in seven matches and an embarrassing Carabao Cup exit to Colchester United this week, Tottenham Hotspur are in dire straits at the moment. Spurs have an opportunity to get back on track this weekend against Southampton, a team they’ve beaten in seven of their last eight home games in the league. In this fixture, both teams have scored in the last seven meetings in the league. Spurs and Southampton have kept just three clean sheets between them in a combined 12 league fixtures so far this season. Unless both teams tighten up at the back, forwards should find it easy scoring.
Swansea v Reading- Swansea Win - 1.85
Swansea are aiming to keep up with Championship leaders Leeds United when they face Reading on Saturday. They still sit second in the Championship, level on points with Leeds but with an inferior goal difference. Reading are 20th in the table and have lost their last three matches in the Championship. They are winless in 11 matches in all competitions against Swansea. The Swans did the double over them last season in the Championship and look set to get all the points at home.
Sampdoria v Inter Milan - Inter Win - 1.65
Inter Milan continued with their perfect start in the Serie A with the narrow win over Lazio. However, they have a difficult week this weekend against bottom-placed Sampdoria. The Nerazzurri have won four of the last six meetings between these two. The hosts are bottom of the table with one win and four losses in their five league games. Antonio Conte’s side are favourites in this fixture due to their form this season.
RB Leipzig v Schalke 04 - RB Leipzig Win - 1.50
RB Leipzig currently sits top of the Bundesliga and are unbeaten in their five league matches this term. Julian Nagelsmann’s side have lost just once in the last 21 games in the league. Since being promoted in 2016, Leipzig have faced Schalke six times and won three times, lost one and drawn twice. Schalke have struggled to compete with the bigger teams in recent times. Last season, they managed just one victory against Bundesliga’s top three taking a total of four points from a possible 18 in these games.
