1 Chelsea vs Aston Villa
Chelsea are yet to lose a competitive match this season, winning 5 and drawing 2 of their 7 games in all competitions. They have already met and beaten Aston Villa this term, winning 3-0 at Stamford Bridge less than two weeks ago.
The Blues have dominated recent head-to-head meetings with Villa, winning 7 and losing just 2. Thomas Tuchel is likely to bench most of his Premier League starters but the Blues have a second eleven that can trouble anyone. That’s why we are backing them to win tonight.
Team to win: Chelsea
Espanyol have drawn 60% of their opening 5 league games, losing 2. The hosts are unbeaten in each of their last 7 home ties against Alaves, winning 5.
Alaves remain rooted at the bottom of La Liga table after losing their opening 4 games. The visitors have only scored a single goal while conceding a whopping 10 goals. A fifth consecutive defeat could be on the offing tonight.
Team to win: Espanyol
3 Spezia vs Juventus
Four Serie A games in and Juventus are still without a league win (D2L2). However, the Italian giants from Turin are likely to get their first of the season tonight.
Juventus won both clashes against Spezia last term, winning 4-1 on this ground before a 3-0 success at the Allianz Stadium in March this year. The away team has so far performed below per but they are fancied to get all three points tonight.
Team to win: Juventus
4 Lorient vs Nice
Nice are yet to lose a league match after 5 rounds of Ligue 1 games, winning 3. Lorient have also begun the new season on a high with 2 wins, 2 draws and a defeat from their six league clashes so far.
However, the hosts are likely to come up short tonight against a Nice side that has already beaten defending champions Lille 4-0.
Team to win: Nice
5 Sevilla vs Valencia
Sevilla are yet to lose a match this season. They have won 2 and drawn 3 of their 5 competitive clashes this season. Valencia, meanwhile, have won 3 of their 5 La Liga games this season. The visitors’ only defeat this campaign has been against Real Madrid (2-1).
Sevilla are unbeaten in their last 5 meetings with Valencia, winning 4. We are predicting that run to continue tonight.
Team to win: Sevilla
6 Go Ahead Eagles vs PSV
PSV Eindhoven return to league action after being thrashed 4-0 at home by Feyenoord on Sunday night. However, we are backing the visitors to triumph tonight against a G.A. Eagles side they’ve beaten in each of their last 8 meetings.
Go Ahead Eagles have lost 3 of their 5 Eredivisie matches this season, winning two. The hosts have never beaten PSV at home (P7W0D1L6).
Team to win: PSV
7 Villarreal vs Elche
Villarreal are yet to win a competitive match this season, drawing all 6. The Yellow Submarines need to start winning if they are to make it to the group stages of next season’s Champions League.
We are backing the hosts to start winning tonight against Elche.
Team to win: Villarreal
