Watford vs Arsenal: the Gunners to Get Their Fourth Win
A couple of rounds ago, Watford managed to end the 12 matches winless streak without a victory, beating Aston Villa 1:0. After that, the Hornets were literally pummeled by Crystal Palace (1:4), and last round, they avoided losing to Manchester United (0:0) at Old Trafford. Watford is bottom of the standings with 19 points, and only Norwich is worse.
Arsenal had a poor start to 2022, failing in five January games. However, in February, the Gunners looked posh - two wins over stalwart Wolverhampton (1:0 and 2:1) and a 2:1 victory over Brentford. Arsenal is fighting for the top 4 in the standings and is currently in the sixth position with 45 points. But it has only played 24 games, so it has three to spare.
We think that Arsenal will get their fourth win in a row. In the first round, the Gunners beat the Hornets 1:0 thanks to Emile Smith Rowe's goal - we expect something similar this time.
A possible bet: W2.
Manchester City vs Manchester United: the Citizens will Be Stronger in the Derby
Manchester City is in high gear - picking up win after win. The only misstep they have made recently was a 2:3 defeat from Tottenham. But after that, they quickly rehabilitated themselves and beat Everton (1:0), and then, in the FA Cup, they beat Peterborough United (2:0). Manchester City has a tight situation at the table. Currently, they lead with 66 points, ahead of second-placed Liverpool by six. The Merseysiders have a match in reserve.
Manchester United is still feverish. After three unsuccessful games in the first two weeks of February, it has played as many as four meetings. First, there were two wins in the EPL, then a draw in the UEFA Champions League last eight with Atletico Madrid (1:1), and the previous round, the Red Devils could not beat modest Watford (0:0) at home. Manchester United is still sitting in fourth place in the standings (47 points), but their opponents are closing in on them.
In the Manchester derby, we favor Manchester City. No matter how you look at it, the difference between these teams in class right now is enormous. The Citizens beat the Red Devils 2:0 at Old Trafford in the first round, although they could have easily crushed them. Now they will play at home, and no one has yet guaranteed them the league title.
A possible bet: Handicap 1 (-1).
Napoli vs AC Milan: Neapolitans is Likely to Win
Napoli have played three 1:1 matches here. First, the Neapolitans drew a powerful Inter, then in Spain with Barcelona in the Europa League qualifiers. After that, they were frankly alarming because they could not defeat Cagliari. In the return match against the Catalans, the team lost (2:4), so they finished their international performance. Last round of the Italian championship Napoli claimed a vital win over Lazio in the dying minutes (2:1), ensuring their second place on the table. It has 57 points, one behind leading Inter (the Nerazzurri have a meeting in reserve).
Milan has not won once in the last three meetings. Moreover, suppose the nil-nil result of Milan's derby with Inter in the Italian Cup can still be called adequate. In that case, the draws with Salernitana (2:2) and Udinese (1:1) do not embellish the team that strives to win the Scudetto. Had the Rossoneri not suffered such setbacks, they would now be at the top of the standings. However, AC Milan is in third place and Napoli with 57 points.
As for the betting on this confrontation, we will keep in mind Napoli. At the legendary Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, the Neapolitans can not lose, especially when they have a massive chance for the long-awaited Scudetto. Milan has lost points against far from top-flight opponents in the last two rounds, and the midweek Milan cup derby could take its toll on their fitness.
A possible bet: Zero Handicap 1.
