Porto v Sporting - Saturday 26 January - Taca da Liga – BET HERE
Having beaten Benfica 3-1 in the semi-final on Tuesday, Porto have now won 22 of their last 25 matches in all competitions. They’ve actually never won this tournament, while Sporting are the reigning champions. The key stat for me is that four of the last six matches between these sides have ended 0-0 after 90 minutes, so I’m going for Under 2.5 Goals, and I think Porto will lift the cup.
Match Tip: Under 2.5 Goals (Odds: 1.70)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Porto 1 v 0 Sporting
AC Milan v Napoli – Saturday 26 January – Serie A – BET HERE
Milan have a decent home record this season with six wins in ten games. Sadly their record against the rest of the top six hasn’t been great though, as they’ve lost three times and only won once. Napoli are second in the league and are on a run of eight wins in ten games, including a 2-1 victory against Lazio last weekend. They’ve won three of their six matches against other top teams this year, and I have a suspicion they’ll do it again here.
Match Tip: Both Teams to Score (Odds: 1.70)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: AC Milan 1 v 2 Napoli
Feyenoord v Ajax – Sunday 27 January – Eredivisie – BET HERE
These two teams are side by side in the table, but only Ajax have any real chance of catching PSV. They’re only two points from top but their hopes suffered a blow when they drew 4-4 with Heerenveen last weekend. That said, they’ve won their last four matches against Feyenoord, who themselves have gone three games without victory. I’m backing an Away Win.
Match Tip: Over 2.5 Goals (Odds: 1.45)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Feyenoord 1 v 3 Ajax
Crystal Palace v Tottenham - Sunday 27 January - FA Cup – BET HERE
We’ve got a London derby in the cup here. Spurs beat Tranmere 7-0 in the last round and have been semi-finalists in the last two seasons, but they’ve got several players out through injury right now. I thought Palace were really poor against Grimsby in the third round, where they only won 1-0. They’ve also lost their last five games against Spurs, so I expect a very narrow Away Win.
Match Tip: Under 2.5 Goals (Odds: 1.80)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Crystal Palace 0 v 1 Tottenham
Lazio v Juventus – Sunday 27 January - Serie A – BET HERE
Lazio’s record against the five teams above this season has been poor. They’ve only taken one point and I don’t fancy their chances against Juventus. The Old Lady have won 18 of their 20 league games so far and have kept a clean sheet in seven of their last ten matches in Serie A. They’ve also beaten Lazio in eight of their last ten clashes, so I have to back them this time.
Match Tip: Juventus Win (Odds: 1.85)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Lazio 0 v 2 Juventus
