Eibar - Celta Vigo ( X )



The first bet is Celta Vigo or Draw Double Chance at the odds of 1.61.
You can also take Celta Vigo Over 1.5 Team Goals at 2.50.


Eibar vs Celta Vigo: Prediction

Celta come into this in a much better form and we must see them as favourites to advance over two legs.

Bologna - Lazio ( 2 )


Lazio to win @ 1.67

Both teams to score @ 1.80

Value is in backing a Lazio win with both teams scoring for 3.60 odd.


Bologna vs Lazio: Prediction

Lazio are coming on the back of some excellent form. Since dropping points against SPAL on opening day, the team won 10 of their 11 games in all competitions. Immobile’s scoring form is particularly impressive.

Meantime, Bologna are a fairly inconsistent team. Despite their respectable league position, the team failed to fare against teams that finished inside the top six last season. Another major problem is the lack of a regular goal scorer.

Valverde hails Arnaiz after impressive Barcelona debut



Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde was delighted with the performance of debutant Jose Arnaiz in his side's Copa del Rey win at Real Murcia.

The 22-year-old marked his first start for the club with the third goal in the 3-0 win over the Segunda B side at the Nueva Condomina on Tuesday.

"He's a player with self-assuredness," Valverde said of Arnaiz. "He has the goal in his head. I believed he could help us in this game and that it's good for them [the B team players] to come and face a situation like this.

"He scored a great goal, he has a powerful shot. It's a first step. We'll see if we can help us more."

Guerreiro relieved to put ´difficult time´ aside after Dortmund return



Raphael Guerreiro is grateful to be able to move on from a "difficult time" after returning from a four-month injury lay-off in Borussia Dortmund's 5-0 thrashing of Magdeburg in the DFB-Pokal on Tuesday.

The Portugal international enjoyed a solid debut campaign in the Bundesliga last year having moved from Lorient, playing 24 times in the German top flight.

But a broken foot sustained at the Confederations Cup in June resulted in his pre-season being ruined, and he was only able to make his comeback on Tuesday.

Guerreiro replaced Marcel Schmelzer in the 63rd minute of Dortmund's comfortable win and was full of positivity after getting back to competitive action.

You can´t ask for a bigger manager – Tuanzebe appreciates demanding Mourinho



Manchester United teenager Axel Tuanzebe believes there is no "bigger manager" to play for than Jose Mourinho and appreciates the pressure the Portuguese puts on his players.

But the defender is simply enjoying learning from the other players and Mourinho, whom Tuanzebe believes is making him a better defender with the "burden" of pressure.

"There's nothing better than playing for Manchester United."

"There's nothing better than playing for Manchester United – playing for a big manager and a big club," he told MUTV.

"There's nothing more rewarding as a young lad coming through. Every day you are learning.

"We've got Jose Mourinho as our manager and you can't ask for a bigger manager.

"Under him there's a lot of pressure and you have to perform. But dealing with that pressure makes you a better player – I've got that burden on me."

VfL Wolfsburg - Hannover 96 ( 1 )



The first bet would be BTTS at 1.70.

You can look for the value in chasing the draw at 3.50.


Wolfsburg vs Hannover 96: Prediction

The bookies see the Wolves as 1.85 favourites in front of their fans, but the value is in backing goals at both ends since none of the two sides have been quite meticulous at the back so far in the season.

Werder Bremen - TSG Hoffenheim ( x )



The first bet is Hoffenheim DNB at 1.72.

You can have Nadiem Amiri to score anytime at the odds of 6.00.


Werder Bremen vs Hoffenheim: Prediction
Werder can hardly end the dismal run here against Hoffenheim who are well worth backing at the DNB option at the odds of 1.72.

Also, Nadiem Amiri is worth taking as the anytime scorer at 6.00 if we know that he scored a goal in the Europa League win over Istanbul last Thursday as well as in the opening round of DFB Pokal against Rot-Weiss Erfurt.
