Rayo Vallecano vs Atletico Madrid
Rayo Vallecano welcomes Atletico Madrid in a match of the 24th round of the Spanish La Liga Championship. The duel will be played on Saturday, February 16, at 3:15 pm at the Nuevo Estadio de Vallecas stadium. Take a look over our football predictions for today below.
Rayo Vallecano has a heavy home this weekend of one of the Le Liga leaders. Hosts desperately need points to get out of the danger zone. The Red Sashes are in 18th place with 23 points and have fewer teams than Celta de Vigo and Girona. Rayo Vallecano have won 26% of their matches since the start of the season with 27 goals and 40 hits. Raul de Tomas Gomez is the lead host of nine hits and the Spaniard will aim to increase his goals in this game.
In the last round, Rayo Vallecano defeated Espanyol after a defeat of 1:2. Before that, Michel lost to Leganes with 1:2. Rayo Vallecano has only one win in his last three home games – 4:2 against Celta. The Vallecans should improve their performance to their own audience if they want to play in the elite next season.
Atletico Madrid is already thinking about the upcoming Juventus battles in the Champions League, but we should not take the focus from the league matches. The Red-and-Whites are in third place in the standings with a total of 44 points – one less than the second Real Madrid. Los Blancos defeated Diego Simeone’s team with Wanda Metropolitano’s 3-1 win in the last round and thus displaced the city’s rival from second place. Now Atletico Madrid will try to return the second position as it will be a big shot if it does not win against a team in the danger zone.
In his last visit, Atletico Madrid defeated Real Betis 0-1. The Red-and-Whites won only 27% of their matches away from home, averaging 1.18 goals per match. Atletico Madrid is having a hard time in the game but I expect to win against Rayo Vallecano and return to the winning streets in La Liga.
Football betting tips for Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munchen
Bayer Leverkusen hosts Bayern Munchen at the most interesting match of the 20th round in the German Bundesliga. The duel is on Saturday at 2:30 pm at the BayArena stadium in Leverkusen.
The hosts in this match, the Bayer Leverkusen team, are in ninth place in the standings with 27 points. Peter Bosz’s team has won 42% of their matches since the season, scoring 29 goals and making 30 hits. Bayer Leverkusen has won 44% of home games this season and scored an average of 1.44 goals per game. The team, however, has difficulty in defending and has averaged 1.67 goals per game in the BayArena Bundesliga.
In the last round, Bayer Leverkusen beat Wolfsburg 3-0 as a guest to return to the winning streak after a 0-1 defeat by Borussia M’gladbach. Peter Bosz’s graduates have three wins, one draw and one loss in their last five games in front of their own audience. Bayer scored seven goals for this period and retained only one dry net. The hosts rely heavily on Kevin Volland and Kai Havertz to score hits as they have seven goals from the season and Robert Lewandowski’s top scorer is 12 goals.
The Bayern Munchen team ranks second in the Bundesliga standings with 42 points. Niko Kovac’s team has won 68% of their matches this season. The Bavarians are the best guest in the German championship and will seek to win the three points at the BayArena stadium to stay close to the leader Borussia Dortmund as the difference between the two teams is now six points. Bayern Munich started 2019 with a 3:1 victory over Hoffenheim as a guest, then defeated Stuttgart 4-1 at the Allianz Arena. In the first half of the season, Bayern Munchen beat their opponent 3-1 in their own field and I think we will see a lot of hits in this game, with more than 2.5 goals in the game.
Monaco – Metz
Monaco hosts Metz in a match of the 1/16-Cup finals of France. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 22, at the Stade Louis II stadium in Monaco. We offer you football betting tips today for this game.
The Monaco team is still not in good shape and is in the penultimate 19th place in Ligue 1. Thierry Henry never finds a way to stabilize the performance of the Monegasque players who a year ago were two of the strongest France. Monaco has not been successful in its last five matches in the league, with the French Cup matches being among the few positive for the hosts.
Monaco qualifies for the 1/16-Cup finals of France. after a 1-0 win at Canet Roussillon. Now, however, Stade Louis II will arrive in the second division of Metz, which could cause serious problems for the Monegasque. Host coach Thierry Henry is expected to start with the best and in the squad to see players like Fabregas and Falcao. Both were team-owners in defeating 1:5 from Strasbourg at home on Saturday -12th Monaco loss in 21 league matches this season.
The Metz team is in first place in Ligue 2 with a total of 44 points. The Maroons have won 14 of their 20 games since the start of the season with two draws and four defeats. Frederic Antonetti’s team is a major favorite for promotion in Ligue 1, and now the team will try to show their class against an elite team. Metz reached the 1/16-final of the Cup of France success with 2: 1 as a guest at Olympique Saint Quentin. Previously, The Maroons eliminated Oissel with 1:0 and Sarreguemines after penalty shootout. Guests will seek to eliminate the fourth consecutive rival in the tournament and this is quite likely given the Monaco format. However, I would like to bet on the team led by Thierry Henry, who has class players and must play better.
Fulham vs Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur hosts Fulham in one of two London derbys in the 23rd round of the Premier League. Of course, the match between Arsenal and Chelsea on Saturday causes much more interest this weekend, but Craven Cottage is expected to be quite intriguing as we see how the Tottenham team will do without leading scorer Harry Kane. Take a look over our football single predictions for today.
Fulham hosts fail to adapt to life in the English Premier League in the best possible way. The Cottagers are on the penultimate 19th place in the standings with 14 points to their name and are five points in the rescue zone. Fulham’s team has won 14% of their matches this season, with all of their winning on their own. However, the team led by Claudio Ranieri now has a very difficult household third in Tottenham and is unlikely to congratulate himself on the victory.
In his last championship, Fulham lost 1:2 as a guest at Burnley. A week earlier, The Cottagers made a shameful drop from the FA Cup after being eliminated from Oldham Athletic. The hosts are in a series of three consecutive defeats but have scored a goal in each of their last five games as they will also try to shoot against Tottenham.
Guests are third in the Premier League standings with 48 points. Tottenham Hotspur is five points behind the second in the Manchester City table and nine behind the Liverpool leader. Mauricio Pochettino’s team lost Manchester United 0:1 in the last round, but that was not the worst news for the Spurs manager and the fans of the team. Top scorer Harry Kane suffered an injury and would be absent for more than a month from the pitch. The English national has scored 14 goals since the start of the season in the Premier League and his absence will reflect Tottenham’s game.
Claudio Ranieri has proved to be a good manager and I think he can outwit Mauricio Pochettino in this game. Fulham has no bad players in his lineup and I think you can bet 1X in this match.
