Solskjaer was furious at how United started against City, so we can expect a flying start from United's forward line in this match. The last time that these two teams met, United went in at half-time 2-0 up having also missed two penalties. The game ended 3-1 and we think United could better that scoreline at Old Trafford. That's why we're suggesting that you back half-time/full-time.

We’re confident that Porto will win on Friday and we have predicte4d a final scoreline of 1-0. The hosts head into the match as the form favourites, having outperformed their guests in all departments, and with a dominating lead in the head to head record between the two clubs. However, Braga have improved of late and look as if they will challenge for fourth spot and possibly a top-three finish which is why we have only backed a narrow 1-0 win for Porto this Friday.

There’s a huge clash at the top of 2. Bundesliga this week, as Hamburg meet top-four rivals Heidenheim. Both sides are aiming for promotion to the top flight this term, although there’s a six-point gap between the hosts and the fourth-placed visitors.

Time will tell if the industrious Ndidi is the next N'Golo Kante but the 22-year-old already leads Europe's major leagues in tackles and interceptions, giving the defence more room to breathe and prepare for dangerous situations.

There are normally plenty of goals when Rotherham take to the field, netting 32 times in 20 matches, being the third highest scorers in the league thus far but they also concede more than a goal a game, something that Paul Warne will be keen to address.
This is new duel where I will bet on goals and that is pretty good option. So, this is league where new season is started, as I remember, two weeks ago, and I hope that they will be on level like they are played in last season. When I said that, I mean on fact that Ahal and their today's rival - Altyn Asyr are rivals who are playing all the time efficient and with plenty of goals and probably they will continue and this time on that level. In last two matches, this rivals are played 2-1 and 3-1, so over is real.
But you look to the goals and they are not a consequence of any superiority. The first goal is a short corner with a big mistake. We know how to defend short corners, we train how to deal with short corners. The players involved were not focused.

This while second game was tough against Sputnik at home and they ended up losing it with 1-0, no surprise there, while their 3rd game was away at Volna, they scored once more 2 goals on the road but lost that time 3-2 as their defense is quite weak overall.
SD Eibar will host Atletico Madrid for this fixture of the league. Atletico are favorites in this game. Atletico is one of the best teams in the league. The visitors probably want to stay in the race for the title. Of course, this will not be an easy task. In any case, they will try to make a positive result. Also, we have Eibar who's is not very good team in this season. They are currently bottom of the table. Yeah, the hosts have a poor results in the last matches. In any case, Eibar will try to provide a strong resistance on the home field. My pick - draw.
