There were 3 shock defeats to some of Europe’s elite teams this weekend. Liverpool left it extremely late to keep their undefeated run intact.
But first, Romelu Lukaka, the man who can’t stop scoring…
Lukaku can’t stop scoring – influence rating 4/5
After somewhat struggling to find his very best form at Old Trafford, Lukaku now appears to have found a club and manager who really love him and that is now showing on the pitch.
In Inter Milan’s last 4 Serie A games, Lukaku has found the net 6 times, including a last-minute winner via the penalty spot at the weekend. These goals also helped equal the Brazilian great, Ronaldo’s fine record of being the first player to score 9 or more goals in their first 11 games for Inter Milan.
With the best odds guaranteed, bet on Lukaku to make it 5 games in a row when Inter Milan take on Verona.
Lukaku to score anytime.
Liverpool leave it late in dramatic turnaround – influence rating 3/5
Liverpool traveled to Villa Park at the weekend on an incredible 27 unbeaten game run in the Premier League.
Their unbeaten run was under major threat when they found themselves 1-0 down with just 2 minutes remaining.
With any good time comes great character and Liverpool showed just that with Robertson scoring in the 88th minute and then Sadie Mane netting the winner in the 94 minutes.
The ‘Red Men’ will now face arguably their biggest game of the season when they welcome Man City to Anfield. Here at Betarena, we think Liverpool will make it 29 games undefeated and open up a bigger gap at the top of the table.

PSG was beaten by relegation battlers Dijon – influence rating 3/5
Despite sitting pretty at the top of the table, PSG suffered embarrassment when they lost to relegation battlers Dijon 2-1.
All appeared to be going as normal when Kylian Mbappe scored and PSG took the lead after 20 minutes, but 2 goals either side of half time flipped this game on its head and there was no coming back.
PSG will be looking to make amends at the weekend, at Betarena, we predict that they will get right back to winning ways against Brest. However, Brest has been in decent scoring form and have only failed to score once in their last 7 games.

Levante shock Barcelona – influence rating 4/5
Barcelona was left shocked at the weekend when they were beaten 3-1 by Levante. Lionel Messi scored Barcelona’s opener to make it his 6th goal in the last 5 games in all competitions. However, the shock came when Levante scores 3 goals in 7 minutes to turn the game on its head and leave Barcelona players and fans stunned.
We’re giving the best odds guaranteed for Barcelona to keep their place at the top of the table and to get back to winning ways against Celta Vigo in their next fixture.
Barcelona to win & Lionel Messi to score
Bayern Munich suffer the biggest defeat in 10 years – influence rating 4/5
Bayern Munich has won the Bundesliga for the last 7 years in a row, but at the weekend, the suffered possibly their biggest humiliation ever in the history of the club.
Bayern traveled to Eintracht Frankfurt and things quickly started going wrong for the German giants when they were down to 10 men after 9 minutes following the sending off of Jerome Boateng.
Munich was then 2-0 down shortly after before Lewandowski scored to make it 2-1 and continue on his record-breaking run of goals.
The second half didn’t go according to plan with Bayern shipping a further 3 goals to suffer their biggest defeat in 10 years and equal an unwanted record of a 5-1 loss.
Following the defeat, Bayern has sacked manager Niko Kovac and now face arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund.
Dortmund sits 2nd in the Bundesliga and we’re predicting at Betarena for them to get one over their rivals Bayern Munich as they go through this tough period.
