Can Txuri-Urdinak back up such showing on Monday evening when they are to drop the curtain on the Matchday No 19 with the home clash against Espanyol?

The visitors have seen plenty of ups and downs throughout the season. They were on a three-loss thread in December thanks to a well congested schedule which saw them play the likes of Barcelona, Real Betis and Atletico Madrid. Nonetheless, the Budgerigars still managed to find the way out of the crisis with a 1-0 victory over Leganes.

Real Sociedad vs Espanyol sportpesa games analysis: Head-to-head

Imanol Alguacil’s Real Sociedad look to build on the momentum after beating Real Madrid 2-0 away when they face an Espanyol side aiming to halt a six-match winless run away from home in all competitions, including four defeats.
Sociedad (22 pts, W6, D4, L8) were left hovering above the La Liga (LL) drop-zone before their shock victory at the Bernabéu brought an end to their four-game losing streak in the league.
What’s striking about Sociedad’s season so far is the sharp contrast between their away record (16 pts, W5, D1, L4) and their miserable home form. Surprisingly, Sociedad have mustered the fewest points (six, W1, D3, L4) and goals (six) at home in the division – drawing a blank in half of their games at the Anoeta.
As for Espanyol themselves, they ended a six-match losing streak – the joint-longest in their league history – with a 1-0 victory against Leganés on January 4, which means they sit eighth (24 pts, W7, D3, L8) ahead of matchday 19.
Rubi’s side have only kept one clean sheet in their 11 competitive away fixtures (W1, D4, L6) this campaign, conceding more than one goal in six of those matches.
That said, Espanyol can take solace from the fact they are unbeaten in their last three visits to the Anoeta (W1, D2).
Players to watchMikel Oyarzabal has had a hand in more LL goals (six) than any other Sociedad player, while Espanyol striker Borja Iglesias averages a goal or assist every 135 minutes.
Stat attack: None of the past 13 top-flight encounters between the pair have ended scoreless, with eight games featuring over 2.5 goals.
Sociedad are yet to score more than two goals in a home match this campaign (avg. 0.88).
Espanyol have only been behind at half-time on three occasions in LL this season, but have ultimately lost eight times.

Sociedad lead the head to head tie by five wins coming into their 43rd meeting with Espanyol.

Both teams scored in all of past four head to head affairs.

Teams have a win, a draw and a loss apiece in past three H2H encounters.

Real Sociedad vs Espanyol Sportpesa football Prediction 

Sociedad’s matches were general short on goalmouth action. This can particularly be said for their home outings. The Basques only scored six goals for the record of one win, three draws and four defeats in eight league matches at Anoeta this term.

Just one of past six matches Sociedad played in all competitions saw three or more goals scored. Since Espanyol also bagged no more than eight goals in nine away fixtures this term, the Under 2.5 goals FT looks to be the best of betting options here.

Braver tipsters can go for the draw which is the most likable of three outcomes based on teams’ form. The odds for such scenario are set at 3.30.

AFC Asian Cup
Date: Monday, 14th January 2019
Kick-off at 16.00 UK/ 17.00 CET
Venue: Hazza bin Zayed Stadium (Al Ain).

The White took full advantage of the crowd support and has had a good tournament so far. They have remained unbeaten after the first two match-days came to a close.

It’s true that they have not yet assured themselves of a place in the latter stages of the competition, but they have got a favorable draw to count on.

The War Elephants were defeated by a hungry Indian team, who were eager to prove themselves to the world stage.

Four goals went past the Thailand backline, and the team morale has likely taken a hit. On top of that, they face the uphill task of going against the tournament hosts in their last group stage game.

Fans can treat themselves to a football treat as it is a do-or-die stage for both sides. Asian football is on the rise, and matches like these ones will do a world of good in getting the continent what it deserves.

It will take quite some time, but the passionate fans of this region dream of a day when they rule the world of this sport along with Latin America and Europe.

UAE vs Thailand Head-to-head sportpesa games analysis: (h2h)

  • Both teams got on the scoresheet in the last three h2h matches in a row.
  • Alberto Zaccheroni’s men have only failed once to score against this opponent.
  • The White kept clean sheets in two of their last three games against the War Elephants.
  • The teams hosting the match has never once failed to find the net.

UAE vs Thailand Sportpesa Prediction

The Arab nation has a 100% winning record against Sirisak Yodyardthai’s men, at home. Moreover, the hosts kept clean sheets in two of their last three h2h home appearances. Considering that U.A.E has the crowd behind them, and with the historical record backing the team, we can expect a home win.

It was quite unfortunate that the Changsuek had to face a tough loss in their opener against India. The group conceded four goals and it took the life out of the team that came into the competition with quite some hopes.

The team captained by Ismail Matar needs just a draw to ensure progress, but a win will give them the group champions tag. As a comparatively easier match awaits the topper of the group in the next stage, U.A.E should go for a win against this weaker rival.

The White will not take risks and jeopardize what they have achieved till now, and in all probability, we can expect them to keep a clean sheet.

Italy – Coppa Italia
Date: Monday, 14th January 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).

The She-Wolf has got one of the easiest fixtures in the Round of 16 of Coppa Italia. Along with the home advantage, Roma is paired with a team from Serie C, the third tier of football competition in Italy.

Gaffer Eusebio Di Francesco will probably opt to rest some of his key players for this tie. Entella is really punching above their weight in this fixture. The team had gone bankrupt in 2001 after spending almost nine decades in Italian football.

Roma just recorded an away win over Parma on the road, and is really high in confidence for this domestic fixture. The Diavoli neri too registered an away win, but there’s an asterisk present here, that the match was conducted as part of Serie C.

The difference in stature between the two teams is to such an extent that this is the first match between these two sides.

Roma vs Virtus Entella sportpesa game analysis: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The sides have never played against each other.

Roma vs Virtus Entella Sporpesa Prediction

If nothing out of the blue happens, La Magica would win this match comprehensively and with comfortable ease. On top of the home advantage, the team has years of experience in the top-most tier of Italian football, as well as world football.

To exhibit the difference in quality, consider that the Giallorossi played in the semifinal of the most prestigious club tournament in Europe, while the Black Devils could not shake off the shackles of the third tier from their feet.

Eusebio Di Francesco’s men have scored two or more goals in ten of their last 12 home-ties. These stretch of matches included Champions League games as well as Serie A fixtures.

The last time Roberto Boscaglia’s men faced a top division team, they conceded three goals. Consider that the team was Genoa, a relegation-battler in the Serie A. We can only imagine how this fixture would turn out, against a side that battles for European spots in the league table.

Against such a comparatively weaker time like that of Virtus, the Magic One will easily score in as well as win, both halves.

Brisbane Roar vs Melbourne Victory Sportpesa Tips
Australia- A-League.
Date: Tuesday, 15th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 08:50 UK/ 09:50 CET
Venue: Suncorp Stadium (Brisbane).

“Roarcelona” will meet the current A-league champs on a Round-15 fixture on Tuesday. The Roar is in a bad shape as they look for their first win in over 5 league games.

The hosts are at the bottom of the table losing 7 of their 12 matches so far. A whopping 25 goals have been conceded by the team from Brisbane and only Mariners have given away more this season.

At present they are on a 7 game winless run losing 6 in that run. In 6 of those 7 matches, the full-time score had more than 2.5 goals in total. After a win over Melbourne City in Round-5, they have never got 3 points in a game and conceded at least 2 or more goals in all following matches as well.

In front of their home fans, they are on a 2 game losing streak and has only a win in the last 5 home fixtures. One of those defeats was against the Victory itself with the game ending with a final score 2-4.

The current champs are right behind the toppers Perth Glory, with a 6 points gap between them. A win will reduce that distance considerably and will lift the team’s morale after the recent loss against Adelaide United. This was their only defeat in the last 5 matches, of which they won 2 as well.

In all their previous 5 matches they conceded goals, but with a total of 14 goals given away, they are one of the better defensive sides in the competition. The Victory has won 5 of their last 6 matches on the road while losing only once. More than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of their last 5 matches away from home.

With the Roar not looking good to win even at home, we may be in for a largely one-sided affair on Tuesday.

Brisbane Roar vs Melbourne Victory game analysis: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The Big V has 3 wins and a loss from the last 5 h2h matches against the Roar across all venues.
  • Both teams scored in all those 5 games and more than 2.5 goals were scored in all those as well.
  • Melbourne have an active 3 match win streak against Brisbane at this venue.
  • All these 3 wins on the trot saw a final score with more than 2. 5 goals in total, of which the winners scored 2 or more goals.

Brisbane Roar vs Melbourne Victory Sportpesa Prediction

The Victory side has won the latest h2h against these opponents just a month before. Including that they are on a 3 game win streak against the hosts at this ground. Also considering their respective positions in the table I think it would be safe to bet on the Victory to win with 1.83 odds.

All their recent h2h at this ground saw more than 2.5 goals in total. In the last 5 matches played by the Roar across all venues, a similar score was obtained. With the visitors scoring 24 goals till now we can be sure that they will find the target again in this upcoming match. So we can bet on a full-time score with over 2.5 goals with 1.60 odds.

Manchester City vs Wolves Sportpesa Tips

English Premier League
Date: Monday, 14 January 2019
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Etihad Stadium (Manchester).

Manchester City scored as many as 16 goals in two domestic cup wins over lower-division outfits Rotherham United and Burton Albion last week.

Carabao Cup holders showed the anger after some unexpected Premier League slip-ups earlier on as they produced two superb attacking showings past clearly weaker rivals. Will they be able to maintain such attacking form on Monday night when Wolves come to visit Etihad in the last game of the Matchday.

Gabriel Jesus boosted up his confidence by bagging four goals past the Brewers on Wednesday evening. Kevin de Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez were also among goalscorers as they are looking for the chance to make the starting line-up here in the league tie with Wolves.

City previously reduced the gap behind leaders Liverpool down to four points thanks to a super important 2-1 victory over the Reds at Etihad. Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane were goal-scorers on the occasion.

Manchester City vs Wolves Sportpesa games analysis

The 22nd round of this Premier League (PL) season signs off with action from the Etihad Stadium, as Manchester City entertain Wolves after a ferocious start to 2019. The champions have already scored five goals or more in a home match three times here in the league, and (if including cup results) netting a monstrous 16 goals across their last two home outings.
Still very much in the title chase, City have been brutally efficient in their PL home matches so far (W10, L1), scoring 3.37 goals per game on average. They’ve scored the first goal in all home matches, and have been in front at half-time on eight occasions (72.7%).
The visitors enter the round in the top half despite being average of late (W2, D1, L2). They are unbeaten in three away matches against teams currently in the top six of the PL (W1, D2), and held City to a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture. That said, they have not kept a clean sheet in six straight PL away games.
Nevertheless, just eight PL matches involving Wolves have been decided by a margin of two goals or more this season, and the team rank lowest in the league for matches producing over 2.5 goals, with just 29% of them seeing three goals or more in total.
Players to watch: Rested in both of City’s cup matches for January, Sergio Agüero has scored in two straight PL rounds. Raúl Jiménez meanwhile, has six goals and four assists in the league so far.
Stat attack: City have scored two goals or more in 16 of 17 home matches in all competitions this season.
Six straight City PL home matches have seen both teams score.
Wolves’ last seven PL away matches have produced 4.6 yellow cards on average.

Manchester City vs Wolves Prediction: Head-to-head 

Wolverhampton Wanderers are one of rare teams which managed to keep Manchester City to a draw this season (1-1 at Molineux in late-August).

The two sides also met each other in the last 16 round of League Cup in October 2017 when the Citizens advance don penalties after the regular time saw no goals.

It was their first H2H meeting in five years following Wolves’ adventures in the lower-division of English football.

Manchester City vs Wolves Sportpesa Prediction

The visitors will come into the match with an improved confidence after a 2-1 victory over Liverpool in the FA Cup seven days ago. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men took advantage of the fact Klopp decided to rest his main stars and Raul Jimenez and Ruben Neves notched goals to send their team into the fourth round of the more important domestic cup.

Wolves have previously shocked Tottenham Hotspur 1-3 away at Wembley, just days before falling 0-2 at home to Crystal Palace. They generally play much better against stronger rivals, but it’s really hard to see them doing much to harm the red Man City side.

Pep Guardiola’s men can’t afford any more slip-ups being still four points shy of Liverpool at the top of the ladder. We do expect the hosts to maintain their spell of excellent form and claim a comprehensive victory over Wolves here.
