Records in the Premier League: In an incredible weekend of football, Lewandowski scored for his 9th Bundesliga game in a row, both LA teams came face to face in the semi-final and Pulisic finally found the net for Chelsea.
But first, Leicester won 9-0 against a sorry Southampton team away from home…
Leicester hit 9 – influence rating 4/5
As many managers say “there is never an easy fixture in the Premier League” however, this game was the complete opposite.
Southampton was down to 10 men not long into the game, but what followed that was a complete humiliation. 5 goals in the first half and 4 more in the second half meant that Leicester broke the Premier League away winning record, previously 8-1, and equalled the winning record, winning 9-0.
Both Perez & Vardy netting hat-tricks for Brendan Rogers team who now sit comfortably 3rd.
With a trip to Crystal Palace next up, who have only won 2 of their last 6 games, at 22bet, we think Leicester will make it back to back away wins in the Premier League.
Leicester to beat Crystal Palace
Lewandowski makes it 9 in a row in the Bundesliga – influence rating 5/5
Often mentioned in the group of players just beneath ‘Messi and Ronaldo’, Robert Lewandowski is trying to prove that he is the next best.
Lewandowski scored for a Bundesliga-record ninth consecutive match as Bayern Munich defeated Union Berlin 2-1 at the weekend.
Furthermore, the Polish target man has now scored in every competitive game in the league, Champions League and German Cup this season for Bayern Munich with a total of 19 goals from 13 games.
Next up for Bayern is a trip to Eintracht Frankfurt, who sit 9th in the league and conceded 4 at the weekend.
With the best odds guaranteed, we’re backing the Bayern number 9 to score in 10 consecutive Bundesliga games.
Robert Lewandowski to score anytime vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Pulisic the hat-trick hero – influence rating 4/5
With rumours already starting to surround Pulisic’s future, Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard was key to stress the American’s importance to the team and it was just a matter of time before the American found his feet – how right he was!
Chelsea travelled to Burnley and Pulisic was instrumental in their 4-2 victory, as he not only bagged himself his first blues goal but also scored another 2 more to claim ‘the perfect hat-trick’ (right foot, left foot & header).
Could this be the game that kick starts his career at Chelsea? At 22 bet, we think so. Chelsea travels to the bottom of the table Watford in their next fixture and we’re backing Chelsea to win the game and Pulisic to make score again.
Chelsea to win and Pulisic to score
Los Angeles defeat Galaxy to make the final – influence rating 3/5
With all the hype and rivalry between these 2 sides, both LA sides came head to head in the Western Semi-Final. The game lived up to the expectations as Los Angeles defeated Galaxy for their first time, 5-3, in a game which swung back & forth.
Not only was there the team rivalry, but there was also the individual battle between Zlatan Ibrahimovic & Carlos Vela over who was the best player in the MLS. Both players scored for their respective teams, but it was Vela who won the individual battle too, scoring twice, to make it 34 goals this season as opposed to Ibrahimovic’s only goal which saw him end the season on 30 goals.
Next up for Los Angeles Football Club is Seattle who finished second in the table.
When these sides met during the league season, one game ended in a draw & the other a victory for Los Angeles. Carlos Vela scored in both matches and we’re predicting, at 22bet, that he will score again and help Los Angeles through to the Audi MLS Cup.
Los Angeles to win & Carlos Vela to score
Mbappe on the scoresheet for the 3rd game in a row – influence rating 4/5
Following a season plagued with injury so far, Kyllian Mbappe is now fully fit and firing on all cylinders for PSG.
PSG have scored a staggering 17 goals in their last 4 games, with Mbappe netting 6 of them in hit last 3 games.
Next up for Mbappe & PSG is an away fixture against bottom of the table Dijon FCO.
At 22bet, we’re sure the Frenchman will be relishing the opportunity of facing the bottom team and adding more goals to his name.
PSG to win, BTTS no, Mbappe to score anytime
