France: Ligue 1
Guingamp vs PSG (Away win)
PSG kicked off their league campaign with a win last weekend at home against newly promoted Amein and after that result, the Paris based club went on to complete what could be described as “the biggest transfer saga of the century” in signing Brazilian star “Neymar Jr” from Spanish giants Barcelona.
No doubt Neymar will be the main attraction of this tie if the manager decides to feature him at some point in the match.
The corresponding fixture of this tie last season did see PSG lose to Guingamp 2-nil and this incident should be fresh on the minds of the PSG players and coaching staff.
My call for this one is an away win for PSG, with the arrival of Neymar Jr, the team should be high on confidence.
Nigeria: Nigerian Professional Football League
Plateau United vs MFM FC (Home win)
This tie features first against second on the NPFL log. Plateau United are currently first on the log and are looking like “Champions Elect” of the Nigerian Professional Football League 2016/2017 season, with just 4 rounds of matches to go.
The Jos based side are three points clear their closest rivals MFM FC. MFM FC had the chance to reduce the points difference between themselves and Plateau United last weekend but failed to capitalize on the bad result of the leaders.
Plateau United to win at home is my call for this tie because they have got the best home record in the league this season.
Italy: Super Coppa
Juventus vs Lazio. (1x & under 4.5)
Juventus will be playing against Lazio in the Italian Super Coppa, the same side they conquered in the Coppa Italia. This tie should not be a difficult one for the “Turin giants” as the club looks to add more silverware to their trophy cabinet.
The reason I am calling this tie “1x and under 4.5” is because it is a final and there is a possibility of the tie going into extra time if both teams play out a stalemate in the 90 mins duration. Both teams could be cautious in their approach to this match and I don’t expect many goals in this.
England: Premier League
Manchester United vs West Ham United (Home win)
Manchester United should be the more offensive side of the two teams when both teams square up at Old Trafford on Sunday. Manchester United lost to Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup and this should motivate the lads to win this tie. Playing at home should also count as an extra boost for the Red Devils in this tie.
West Ham United made some good additions to the side also and the London based side will be hoping to cause an upset in this game but the underlying factor for me will be the menacing fire power in Manchester United’s attacking line.
My call for this one is a home win.
All odds amount to a 3odd multiplier.
