Another controversial week in the Premier league with VAR yet again making the headlines. Ronaldo scores again and adds another record to his name, plus Rooney’s time in America is up.
But first, Liverpool lose their 100% winning streak and fails to break the Premier League record winning streak record at Old Trafford…
Liverpool lose their 100% winning streak – influence rating 4/5
Last season, in a quest for Premier League silverware, Liverpool won their 9 remaining games in a row, but still ended just short of winning the trophy. This season they have continued their fine form, winning 8 more games in a row, equalling a Premier League. A trip to Man Utd and a victory Old Trafford would break that record.
2 controversial VAR decisions (both against Liverpool) and 90 minutes later, Liverpool ended up just short and only manage a draw at Man Utd, thanks to an Adam Lallana late equaliser
Despite Jurgen Klopp’s men not being on top form, coming away with a point from Old Trafford is still a good result and can only be considered a point gained.
Next up for Liverpool is another tough game against last season Champions League opponents, Tottenham.
Spurs have had their own troubles off the pitch this season and here at 22bet, we predict that Liverpool will get back to winning ways and defeat their London rivals.
Ronaldo is now a part of the 700 club – influence rating 5/5
“I don’t chase records, they follow me” – Cristiano Ronaldo.
Following the international week, Cristiano Ronaldo ended up scoring his way into the illustrious 700 goals scored for club and country.
Having already won 5 Ballon d’Or honours, scored the most European Champions League goals, has now become one of five other players to reach the incredible 700 goal mark.
It’s been an incredible week for Cristiano Ronaldo in which saw him reach the 700 goal tally for his country Portugal and then add to that tally for his club side Juventus.
Ronaldo has now scored in 6 of his last 7 games in all competitions and here at 22bet we can’t see him not scoring in his next game against relegation strugglers Leece.
Celtic score 6 to leapfrog their rivals – influence rating 3/5
With 9 games gone in the SPL, Celtic are only managing to be top of the table over their Glasgow rivals, Rangers, on goal difference, largely thanks to a 6 goal victory at the weekend.
Having played 9 games this season, Celtic have managed to win 7 of those goals, including victory away at Rangers.
A tough trip to top four positioned Aberdeen awaits Celtic, however, we predict here at 22bet that Neil Lennon’s green hooped men will be too strong for their opponents and come away with another 3 points despite Aberdeen’s recent good away victory.
Rooney’s time in MLS is up, plus Zlatan fails to score but Galaxy through – influence rating 3/5
The end of the season often sees players depart from their club and this season there will be a no bigger name than Wayne Rooney moving clubs following DC United’s knockout from the MLS.
Following an 18 month spell in the States, Rooney managed almost a goal every other game, scoring 23 from 48 goals but unfortunately never managed to get his hands on any silverware.
Another Man Utd player has managed to make it one step further in this year’s competition. Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s LA Galaxy have now made the Conference Semi-Final stage.
Arguably one of the biggest names in the game and this season’s second-leading goal scorer, the stage is now set for Zlatan Ibrahimovic to bring more glory to LA Galaxy.
PSG open up a lead at the top – influence rating 3/5
It’s almost a surprise if they don’t win in the French Ligue 1, but PSG has continued on their unbeaten run this season with another victory and have opened up a 5 point lead at the top of the table already.
PSG remain undefeated from their opening 10 games of the season, scoring an impressive 21 and conceding just 5.
With the title already destined to be going to Paris again this season, here at 22bet, we’re predicting PSG will continue their unbeaten run in their next game.
