Celta De Vigo vs Atletico Madrid
The hosts Celta De Vigo are unbelievably in a fantastic form and it will be no surprise to see them triumph over Atletico Madrid. They have won a whooping 9 of the last 10 played across all competitions losing only one which was a narrow defeat to Real Betis.
The league leaders Atletico Madrid will be launching their fresh quest into the title this season but their performance in the pre season is not anything to go by. A loss to Salzburg and Feyenoord has left them struggling ahead of this crucial opening fixture. It will be exciting to see who will outshine the other here and ensure a better start.
Best prediction: An away win to Atletico Madrid with an Over 2.5 goals expected.
Koln vs Hertha
The Germany Bundesliga takes to action this Sunday as Hertha Berlin travel to face each other with FC Koln for an opening fixture. Hertha seem to be in good shape after they got better of Premier League outfit Liverpool hammering them 4 goals to 3 where goals from Minamimo, Chamberlain and Sadio Mane weren't enough to give the Reds a reason to smile.
Both sides are coming into this match at a point in time they are enjoying an impressive run of form. Koln are unbeaten in 9 recent matches and similarly Hertha have not lost a match in the last 10 played in all competitions. This two must have been prompted to perform by relegation threat that loomed last season and probably they will be looking to evade the danger into the new campaign.
A home win for Koln is with no doubt the best prediction here.
Marseille vs Bordeaux
France Ligue 1 continues for the round of 2 featuring Marseille who will be hosting Bordeaux side. Nothing could stop a motivated Marseille from extending their fine form as it started with a win to Saint Etienne and Villarreal before overcoming Montpellier now in a three match winning streak. They are now three points clear ahead of their opponents.
On the other side, Bordeaux suffered unprecedented loss to Clermont Foot in their very first encounter in the Ligue 1. It is a loss that not only denied them a point but halted their then superb form unbeaten in 8 games previously.
A win at home to Marseille is the best prediction here.
Lokomotiv Moscow vs Zenit
A high flying Zenit Petersburg started the Russian Premier League on a high note winning all three matches played in the league. It is a win to Khimik, Rostov and Krasnodar that has rewarded the visitors with all 9 points ahead of the round of 4.
Zenit are beautifully well ahead at the top of the table taking the first position with their counterparts Lokomotiv Moscow at the 4th spot with seven points. Lokomotiv Moscow won over Arsenal Tula and CSKA Moscow before they were edged to a 1-1 draw by FC Ufa. It's interesting here to see who gets a win in a clash between two top sides. However, Zenit have an upper hand as the last 4 head to head stats reveal them as superior having won 3 of them and never conceded a defeat in the same period.
Best prediction: A win for Zenit Petersburg away from home with BTTS.
