Premier League Soccer Predictions and Preview (matchday 38)
The Premier League almost did it: After around six weeks of the Corona season, the English first division clubs are facing the final matchday. While Liverpool could have won the championship race for a long time, there are still exciting decisions to be made beyond the top of the table: Who will qualify for the Champions League? Who for the Europa League? And who gets off? An overview of all matches on match day 38.
Leicester vs Man United Soccer Betting Prediction
It is the top game of matchday 38: Manchester United and Leicester City duel for the Champions League!
The Red Devils are currently ahead of the pack, passing the Foxes and Blues in 3rd place on matchday 37, but since they are only one point ahead of Leicester (5th place) – and Chelsea are tied for fourth place – they are Mass not read yet. The fact is that both teams have mixed shape curves in the last game day: Leicester only got seven points from the last five games, United eight. The fact that the Red Devils lost Chelsea and Leicester last matchday was not due to a strong win – but to the defeats of the competition. So ManUnited handed a bland 1-1 against West Ham to move from pole position to the last round.
In the long run, however, United should be judged to be more formally strong: in the run-up to the slump in the past five appearances, the Red Devils had consistently performed well. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team remained undefeated for a total of 17 games, which meant that after a weak start, they continued to work towards the Champions League. Now the team is facing its last test. At Leicester City, on the other hand, the season went the opposite way: The Foxes started extremely strongly – in the meantime they even kept up with Liverpool FC – but as the season went on, the form flattened out. Almost nothing has worked since the Corona break, only two of nine games were won.
The bottom line is that Manchester United is more important. The team is individually superior and less form-weak than Leicester. The Red Devils, one of the strongest away teams in the league, will secure third place in the end.
Betting Prediction: win for Manchester United
Fc Chelsea vs Wolves Soccer Betting Prediction
Chelsea actually wanted to spoil Liverpool’s home record (18 wins), but nothing came of it: it was 3: 5 at the end of an entertaining game in which the blues were defeated mainly because of a failed start. Halfway through, Frank Lampard’s team was 0-3 behind. At the beginning of the final phase, the Reds came dangerously close again – 3: 4 – but in the end you were the deserved loser. The Blues thus missed the preliminary decision in the fight for the Champions League. Worse, you had to let ManUnited go by. With four wins and three defeats from the last seven games, the team simply allowed itself too many mistakes in the final sprint.
With the Wolverhampton Wanderers, Chelsea now faces an extremely uncomfortable opponent. Not only are the Wolves one of the surprises of the season – they also have their own goal on the agenda: qualifying for the Europa League. If Wolverhampton, currently sixth, wants to keep Tottenham Hotspur behind them, Chelsea will have to beat them, which is why we expect the team to be focused and courageous. The Wanderers have their strengths especially on the defensive: With 19 goals, they represent the second best defense of the league away, which should benefit them against Chelsea’s high-class offensive series. Chelsea, on the other hand, should have more problems with Wolverhampton’s attack group, which should not be underestimated – it is not for nothing that ten teams conceded fewer goals than the blues.
Since Chelsea’s weaknesses match Wolverhampton’s strengths (and not the other way around), we expect an upset – and possibly the missing of the Champions League qualification for the future employer of Timo Werner and (probably) Kai Havertz.
Betting Prediction: Double chance X2
Crystal Palace vs Tottenham Hotspur Soccer Betting Prediction
Another London club that has to tremble! The Tottenham Hotspur currently occupy 7th place, which depending on the outcome of the FA Cup might not be enough for the Europa League. If Arsenal won and Tottenham did not climb up, the Spurs would only play nationally in the future.
To avoid such a fiasco, José Mourinho’s team must win against Crystal Palace. The wind is somewhat good: Tottenahm has won three times in a row, including against Arsenal (2-1) and Leicester (3-0). Looks like the team had come together at the end of a disappointing season – point for Mourinho.
Nevertheless, the air should be tight for the Portuguese – namely when his club misses the Europa League. Crystal Palace will do its best to teach the city rival the disgrace – but the chances are slim. The team lost seven games in a row, Palace is one of the worst teams since the Premier League restart. There is likely to be an inglorious ending against Tottenham.
Betting Prediction: victory for Tottenham Hotspur and over 2.5 goals
West Ham United vs Aston Villa Soccer Betting Prediction
Aston Villa has to tremble: Only because of the slightly better goal difference – one point! – the team keeps the class according to the current status. The tied FC Watford could still pass. With West Ham United, a team is waiting for a strong final phase of Corona (seven points from three games). Therefore, Villa’s fate is likely to be decided at another location in London: the Emirates.
Betting Prediction: victory for West Ham United
Arsenal FC vs Watford FC Soccer Betting Prediction
The Premier League season has ended for Arsenal – disappointing. After a brief upswing, the team showed their worst side again against Aston Villa and was once again defeated by a clear underdog (0: 1). In the table, the Gunners can only be eighth at the moment, currently occupying 10th place. You shouldn’t be surprised if the Londoners again underperform against relegation candidate Watford.
Betting Prediction: Double chance X2
Newcastle United vs Liverpool FC Soccer Betting Prediction
The Reds can no longer take the most superior championship in the history of the Premier League, the team also beat the home record against Chelsea (5-3, 18 wins from 19 games). What is left? No more than the desire for a proper end. Motivator Klopp should fulfill this hope.
Betting Prediction: victory for Liverpool FC at handicap -1
Manchester City vs Norwich City Soccer Betting Prediction
ManCity will end the season against Norwich table bottom with a rifle festival.
Betting Prediction: Manchester City wins and scores 3 or more goals
Southampton FC vs Sheffield United Soccer Betting Prediction
Sheffield played for the Europa League almost until the end – terrific for a comparatively financially weak climber. It should be balanced against the strong Saints.
Betting Prediction: draw
Burnley FC vs Brighton & Hove Albion Soccer Betting Prediction
For 37 days, Burnley has proven that it plays football better than Brighton. Matchday 38 will be no exception.
Betting Prediction: victory for Burnley FC
Everton FC vs Bournemouth AFC Soccer Betting Prediction
The penultimate from Bournemouth still has outsider chances to stay in the league – but for that Watford and Villa would have to lose. First of all, the homework in Goodison Park has to be done. The courage of despair should help.
Betting Prediction: victory for AFC Bournemouth
