It’s an action-packed week of football in Europe. Plenty of matches in the League Cup, Serie A and La Liga are lined up for this week. Here are the Top 5 Bets for the Week for you to consider. Bet on these games here.
Everton v Watford - Everton Win - 1.75
Another loss over the weekend piled more pressure on Everton boss Marco Silva ahead of his side's Carabao Cup tie with former club Watford on Tuesday. Despite Everton’s poor run of form, they have a solid home record. They have won three of their last five games at Goodison Park. On the other hand, Watford are in dreadful form. They’ve won just two matches this season and have won just once in their last eight matches. The Hornets have not won in their last five games on their travels, losing three and drawing two. The Toffees have beaten the Hornets three times in their last six meetings. Both Silva and Quique Sanches Flores need this win but Everton’s home advantage gives them a slight edge.
Valencia v Sevilla - Under 2.5 Goals - 1.85
Four of the last five matches between these two have seen two or fewer goals. Three of Sevilla’s last five away matches have seen Under 2.5 Goals. Three of Valencia’s last five La Liga games have seen two or fewer goals scored. That being so, a cagey and low-scoring encounter is on the cards.
Napoli v Atalanta - Over 2.5 Goals - 1.50
Atalanta’s last five matches in all competitions have seen three or more goals scored. Four of the last six meetings between these two rivals have seen Over 2.5 Goals. Atalanta have conceded nine goals in their last three away matches but have also scored eight in the process. Although Napoli’s attack is struggling, Atalanta are unstoppable at the moment but also weak at the back.
Lazio v Torino - Both Teams to Score - 1.80
Both teams have scored in six of the last seven encounters between these two. Both teams have scored in Lazio’s last five matches in all competitions. Both teams have found the back of the net in three of Torino’s last five matches in all competitions. Torino have also not kept a clean sheet in their last nine away games in all competitions.
Liverpool v Arsenal - Liverpool Win - 1.85
Arsenal don't have a great recent record when it comes to visiting teams in the big six in England. The Gunners have failed to beat a top-six side away in the Premier League since January 2015 when they beat Manchester City 2-0, and the last time they managed it in any cup competition was later that year. The Gunners have won just one of their last five away matches in all competitions. The Reds have won 12 out of 15 matches this seasons in all competitions. Arsenal’s have little chance of winning at Anfield taking into account their recent form away from the Emirates.
