The Premier League seems to already be in the bag for Liverpool, Aguero, Ronaldo & Messi find the net again for their teams, but first, Borussia Dortmund bagged themselves a superstar in this January transfer window…
Haland hat-trick on debut – influence rating 5/5
Following his big move just recently to Borussia Dortmund, Erling Braut Haland couldn’t have hoped for a better debut.
Coming off the bench with his side 3-1 down, Haland found the net within 5 minutes of coming on and then added a further 2 goals to complete a debut hat trick to help his side to complete the turn around and earn a 5-3 victory away from home.
Next up for Dortmund is a home fixture against relegation strugglers Cologne. With 22bet, you can back Haland to find the net on his home debut and Dortmund to win.
Aguero scores twice but City held at home – influence rating 5/5
Following a spell of almost 6 weeks on the sidelines, Sergio Aguero’s comeback has shown just how much he was missed by City during that period. In his first game back, Aguero netted on 3 occasions as his side romped to a 6-1 victory, and when his side needed him most in their most recent fixture, who was there again? That man Sergio Aguero…
City were trailing 1-0 and home with 10 minutes to play and that man Aguero popped up with 2 goals in 5 minutes to turn the game around. However, Crystal Palace did fight back again to earn a 2-2 draw which leaves City a mile behind league leaders Liverpool.
Man City travel to the high flying Sheffield United who they defeated 2-0 when the sides previously met. Aguero scored in that game too. With the highest odds guaranteed, will Aguero be able to find the net again and City get back to winning ways?
Ronaldo double stretches Juve lead at the top – influence rating 4/5
Following his record breaking goals last time out – Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored against every Serie A team he has faced. And he has only been at Juventus for 18 months.
Ronaldo was at it again when Juventus met Parma at the weekend. The Portuguese superstar found the net either side of half time as Juve ran out 2-1 winners and to give themselves a 4 point gap over Inter following their draw.
Ronaldo has now scored 6 in his last 3 Serie A games taking his tally to 16 in the league this season.
Juventus travel to struggling Napoli in their next fixture. Ronaldo found the net as Juventus ran out 4-3 winners in the reverse fixture earlier this year. Will Cristiano be able to fit the net and help Juventus to another victory?
Barcelona & Real Madrid tied in La Liga – influence rating 3/5
Following a mini winter break, La Liga was back in action and the tussle at the top between Barcelona & Real Madrid continued.
Madrid were first to play as they took on Sevilla at the Bernabeu. All the goals came in the second half as Real ran out 2-1 winners thanks to a double from midfielder Casemiro.
Barcelona faced mid table, Granada at the Camp Nou in what seemed to be a routine fixture. However, the Spanish giants stumbled to a 1-0 victory thanks to a late Lionel Messi goal following the away side going down to 10 met.
Both sides next fixtures are away from home. Barcelona have struggled losing 3 times already, whilst Real have fared much better only being defeated once this season.
At 22bet, you can back both Real Madrid & Barcelona to win away from home and continue their battle at the top.
16 point lead for Liverpool – influence rating 5/5
What we’re currently witnessing in the Premier League is nothing short of astonishing.
Going into their big game against rivals Man United, Liverpool were 13 points clear with 2 games in hand.
Fast forward 90 minutes, Liverpool defeated United 2-0 to make that game 16 points from second place Man City with a game in hand.
Jurgen Klopp’s men remain undefeated from their 22 games this season – only failing to win one of those games too. That undefeated record also stretches back to the second half of last season where Liverpool where they scousers have now made it 40 games without a defeat. With the Premier League seemingly ‘done and dusted’ surely they will have their sights set on passing Arsenals ‘invincible’ side which went 49 games undefeated?
A tough fixture awaits Liverpool in their next game, away to Wolves who have been in fine form of late.
At 22bet we cannot really see Liverpool being defeated though, so get the best odds on Liverpool beat Wolves.
