Newcastle v Huddersfield – Saturday 23 February – Premier League
Newcastle beat Manchester City in their last game at St. James’ Park and they have only lost two of their last five games there. I can’t see any way back for Huddersfield. They’ve only won 11 points this season and I don’t think their situation will improve. They have lost four games in a row and have only one away win all season. I think Newcastle will win here.
Match Tip: Newcastle Win (Odds: 1.85)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Newcastle 2 v 1 Huddersfield
Sevilla v Barcelona – Saturday 23 February – La Liga
A win here would mean a lot for Barcelona, who are seven points above Atletico in the table. They have won eight of their last ten league games, while Sevilla have won just two of their past ten games in La Liga. These sides met in the cup last month and Barcelona won 6-3 on aggregate. For that reason, I’m backing an Away Win.
Match Tip: Over 2.5 Goals (Odds: 1.50)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Sevilla 1 v 2 Barcelona
Manchester United v Liverpool – Sunday 24 February – Premier League
This is the biggest rivalry in England, so we can expect an exciting game. Liverpool beat Manchester United in December, which directly led to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer taking over at Old Trafford. Since then United have won eight of their nine league games and look very dangerous. Liverpool only need a point to go top of the Premier League, but they have not won at Old Trafford since 2014. I think that this will finish in a Draw though
Match Tip: Both Teams to Score (Odds: 1.55)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Manchester United 1 v 1 Liverpool
Chelsea v Manchester City – Sunday 24 February – League Cup Final
Manchester City beat Arsenal convincingly in the final last year, and it’s hard not to see the same outcome here. City beat Chelsea 6-0 two weeks ago and won 2-0 at Wembley in August when they lifted the Community Shield. Chelsea have lost four of their last five games away from Stamford Bridge and I have to go for a City Win.
Match Tip: Manchester City Win (Odds: 1.55)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Chelsea 1 v 3 Manchester City
AS Monaco v Lyon – Sunday 24 February – Ligue 1
Monaco have not lost any of their last four games, but Lyon are tough opposition. The visitors are third and have won four of their last five games in Ligue 1. However, they have conceded 18 goals in 12 away games, so I think Both Teams to Score is a good bet. Monaco still aren’t at their best though, so I am backing Lyon to win the match.
Match Tip: Both Teams to Score (Odds: 1.50)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: AS Monaco 1 v 2 Lyon
