Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Leicester City
I am betting Wolves here -0.25, Wolves face a poor defensive side in Leicester City they are rated as the 5th worst side in the premier league but that has changed and in a few weeks’ time they will be the 3rd worst team as Watford and Newcastle are both defensively better due to recent signings and in Watford’s case a change of coach too. Leicester is missing a whole host of players, our are Vardy, Evans, Fofana, Ryan Bertrand, Timothy Castagne as well as James Justin while James Maddison and Caglar Soyuncu are both doubts, It is difficult to see Wolves not scoring and they are so good defensively themselves they may only need to score 1 to win. I was going to add the goals but it is some windy across the UK I don’t believe this type of weather is condusive of goals so happy to rely on Wolves -0.25 as my bet.
Wolverhampton Wanderers -0.25 min odds 1.88
Boca vs Rosario Central
Boca Juniors managed their first success in this competition last Wednesday, when they beat Aldosivi 2-1 away thanks to a brace from Sebastian Villa. Therefore, the team made it four points in group B and five league matches without defeat (two victories and three draws since losing to Independiente away in November). At home, El Xeneize are on four home games unbeaten in domestic action, winning two and drawing two. However, Boca will host Sunday’s game at Velez Sarsfield due to reseeding works at Estadio La Bombonera.
Rosario Central managed an important victory last Tuesday, when they beat Velez Sarsfield 1-0 at home with Cristian Baez netting the winner in the second half. Cristian Gonzalez’s men made it four points in two matches in this competition and also broke a four-match winless streak of three stalemates and one loss in league action. On the other hand, El Canalla registered a single victory across their last eight away matches, having drawn four and lost three in the process.
Boca showed signs of improvement in their win at Aldosivi, and even though Central should be a tougher rival I think that if they can be more accurate in attack, they shouldn’t have a problem to take the win here.
BET: Boca -0.75 @ 1.85
Newell’s vs River Plate
Newell’s Old Boys showed a sorry version last Tuesday and succumbed to a deserved 3-0 away defeat at Argentinos Juniors after being dominated from beginning to end. La Lepra remain on three points after two games in this tournament and claimed a single victory across the last five league games, along with two draws and two defeats.
Defending champions River Plate returned to their usual standards last Wednesday, when they managed to beat Patronato 4-1 at home with Julian Alvarez netting a hat-trick. Marcelo Gallardo’s men took their first three points in the Copa Liga Profesional and also put an end to their four-game winless streak of two draws and two defeats in league action.
Again I’m expecting goals in a River game. Newell’s conceded 3 midweek, River conceded in both games so far this season, so we should definitely see goals here.
BET: OVER 2.5 @ 2.03
