Everton – Liverpool
. The Mersyside derby has always been an exciting occasion between these two teams and on Saturday it won’t be any different. Liverpool have been in good form recently and Everton ended their seven game winless streak with a win against Palace. The Toffees couldn’t win in the last nine times these two teams met and will look to end this bad streak. The bad news for them is that Daniel Sturridge returned to action for Liverpool and scored a goal which means he’ll probably start this game. Everton have been conceding many goals at home this season and only WBA have a worse record then them in this area. Positive for the hosts is the fact that Romelu Lukaku has scored four goals in his last five games against Liverpool and we may as well see both teams finding the back of the net.
Tip: Both teams to score @ 1.66
Tottenham – Arsenal
Spurs haven’t lost in any of their last six home games in the domestic league and confidence is high for Pochettino’s team. Arsenal’s streak is also very impressive – they’ve won five out of their last six EPL fixtures. But they still struggle with injured players and the biggest absence for them will be Alexis Sanchez who has a hamstring injury. Danny Welbeck could return but it’s unlikely that he’ll feature from the start of the match. Tottenham have no problems with their squads and all of their players are available for selection. The hosts haven’t won any of the last four meeting between these London rivals and will be extremely motivated to prove their abilities.
Tip: 1 @ 3.25
Juventus – Milan
Nobody thinks Milan has a chance in this match and people may have a good point here. Philipe Mexes and Mattia Destro are suspended for the visiting side in this match and new signing Luca Antonelli is expected to start at left back. Juventus are almost perfect at home having won 27 out of their last 29 league matches at their stadium. If Milan want to win something from this match they need to be almost perfect in defense and rely on counter-attacks. Juventus don’t usually score many goals in the first half but eventually they should be able to break Milan and win this.
Tip: Draw at half time/Juventus win at full time @ 3.50
Atletico Madrid – Real Madrid
Another great derby this day and it’s very hard to predict this one. Real will have to cope with the absences of James Rodriguez and Sergio Ramos and Diego Simeone will enjoy facing a weakened opponent. The hosts will enjoy the return of Gabi from suspension and Cristian Ansaldi is back after an injury. After knocking out their rivals in the cup, Los Colchoneros will look very confident against them but the visitors will definitely want revenge. Atleti haven’t lost in their last seven meetings with Real and they seem to enjoy playing against them so a win or a draw doesn’t seem unlikely.
Tip: 1X @ 1.57
