Also, Not just on these two games, TopbetsSA picks the top five betting fixtures you can place your money on, plus extra tips for our readers.
Chelsea vs Manchester City
Chelsea’s recent 4-1 victory over Tottenham might appear to bode well for their upcoming clash, but it belies deeper issues within the team. Despite the win and Tottenham having two players sent off, Chelsea faced difficulties throughout the game. Nicolas Jackson’s late hat-trick polished the final score, yet Spurs, with a diminished squad, still managed to unsettle the Blues.
On the other hand, Manchester City is in prime form, having just secured their fifth consecutive win and moving to the top of the Premier League. They’ve been prolific in front of goal, netting 17 in their last five matches. Even with star forward Erling Haaland resting for half their previous match, City showed no signs of slowing down, with Haaland returning to score twice in their midweek game.
The historical context doesn’t favor Chelsea either; they’ve lost their last four Premier League encounters with City and six consecutive matches across all competitions. With Chelsea suffering eight home losses in the league this year, another defeat seems likely as they face a formidable City side that is sharply contrasting with Chelsea’s current form. The upcoming game could further expose Chelsea’s issues, while City appears too strong and well-poised to capitalize on the Blues’ vulnerabilities.
Manchester City boasts a six-game winning streak against Chelsea across all competitions and are in excellent form with five consecutive victories, having scored 17 goals in those matches. Chelsea, having recently shown signs of struggle in their narrow victory over a nine-man Tottenham team, are anticipated to face a significant challenge when they meet the in-form champions, Manchester City.
Tip: Manchester City to Win ❌
Inter Milan vs Frosinone
Inter Milan has reclaimed the top position in Serie A, enjoying a three-match winning streak in the league and extending their overall victory run to five consecutive games after their latest European triumph in Salzburg. They are now poised to showcase their strength against Frosinone, a team they’ve consistently outperformed, with four wins in as many Serie A encounters, netting 11 goals and conceding only once. With the highest goal tally in the league at 27 from 11 matches, Inter is in prime scoring form.
Frosinone, facing difficulties with three consecutive away losses, including a narrow defeat to a struggling Cagliari side, appears to be heading into a challenging fixture. Considering Inter’s potent offense and Frosinone’s recent form, expectations are set for Inter to secure a decisive victory, potentially adding several goals to their impressive tally.
Inter Milan is riding a wave of excellent form, having emerged victorious in their last five matches. Averaging 2.5 goals per home game in Serie A this season, they’ve also managed to score three or more goals in three of their four most recent encounters with Frosinone, cementing their status as the current league frontrunners.
