The international break is over and we’re back to the domestic leagues. There’s plenty of excitement as a few huge names make their debuts (or returns) after a hectic transfer window.
All times on the images are in British Summer Time (BST). You can see when the matches kick off in your local time by visiting BitOdds.
Leicester v Man City
English Premier League
Saturday 2pm UTC
On paper you’d have this down as a fairly comfortable away win. However, Man City look to be without their 2 first-choice goalkeepers, meaning 36-year-old Scott Carson could be in line for a start. The clubs only legitimate striker, Gabriel Jesus, could also be missing due to a FIFA ban for not playing for Brazil. Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden and Benjamin Mendy will also be missing. Man City do have great squad depth, but are facing a really solid Leicester team who should be able to give them a run for their money when you consider the absentees.
It would be a risk to back the draw (4.3) or Leicester win (6), so Leicester +1 (1.88) gives allowances for either happening.
Crystal Palace v Tottenham
English Premier League
Saturday 11:30am UTC
Tottenham have won each of their 3 opening Premier League matches 1-0 and will have a fully firing Harry Kane back after he scored 3 goals in England’s 3 World Cup qualifiers. Crystal Palace have managed 2 draws and 1 loss from their opening 3 and look uninspired under new manager Patrick Vieira. In addition, Spurs are unbeaten in their last 12 league meetings with Crystal Palace (W10 D2), having let in just 4 goals in this time.
Odds of nearly even money seem attractive here with Tottenham on good form.
Union Berlin v Augsburg
Saturday 1:30pm UTC
Union Berlin have created a fortress. They’re unbeaten in 18 league matches at home and face an Augsburg side dealing with their worst ever start to a Bundesliga campaign (1 draw and 2 losses). Last season Augsburg were the 2nd worst away side in the division with just 4 wins, and early signs suggest this won’t change in 2021/22. By contrast, Union Berlin’s start of 1 win and 2 draws is their best ever start to a Bundesliga campaign.
All signs point to a home win here, and there seems to be goal value when you consider the above factors.
