Milan vs Napoli - Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score and Milan to win

The two early pace-setters face off in the game of the weekend on Sunday night, as second placed AC Milan host Napoli at the San Siro. Going 12 unbeaten at the start of the season, Milan have recovered after two frustrating defeats where they lost 4-3 away at Fiorentina followed by a 3-1 humbling at home to Sassuolo.

Despite a spate of injuries, two wins followed by a salvaged point against Udinese thanks to a 90th-minute equaliser from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, which now leaves Milan just one point off top and their city rivals, Inter Milan.

Napoli, on the other hand, seem to be slipping away in the gripping title race as their own injury crisis seems to have derailed their charge for a first Scudetto since 1990. Just one win in their last six, including costly defeats to fellow title challengers Inter and Atalanta means Luciano Spaletti’s men have dropped from first to fourth and now lie four points behind Inter.

With Ibrahimovic still in fine scoring form, netting seven goals in his 10 games so far this season, we think a home win and the Swede to score is our bet here.

Bayern Munich vs Wolfsburg: Bayern to win 3-0

Wolfsburg make the trip to the Allianz Arena on Friday night as first hosts 11th in the Bundesliga.

Julian Nagelsmann’s team look on course for a record-extending 10th title in Germany, having a six-point lead into this week's fixture, which is now the final before the three-week winter break in Germany. Bayern have an almost faultless record at home this season, winning seven of their eight games.

The only defeat came at home to Eintracht Frankfurt, losing 2-1 back in October. After winning their first four games of the season, Wolfsburg have been in dreadful form. Finishing bottom of their Champions League group, the Wolves have lost their last four, conceding 11 goals in these defeats.

The Bavarians have won their last seven against Wolfsburg, scoring 23 goals in these games. A comfortable home win seems likely here

BAYERN TO WIN 3-0 AGAINST WOLFSBURG @ 8/1

Atalanta vs Roma: Mario Pasalic to score and Atalanta to win

Jose Mourinho takes his Roma side to Bergamo to face Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta on Saturday. Atalanta have had their best-ever start to a Serie A season, losing just two games all season and recovered from their early worries. Sitting on 37 points, they look to be fighting with Milan, Inter, and Napoli in a four-horse race for the Scudetto.

Mourinho has yet to have the managerial bounce which has followed him throughout his managerial career, seen with the trophy after trophy spells at Chelsea, Inter, and even Manchester United. Roma’s inconsistencies are shown through their last eight games, winning four and losing four and they're in a pickle right now.

This has included costly home defeats to both of the Milan teams, leaving the top four eight points away. Scoring nine goals in their last two home games, and with Mario Pasalic claiming five goals in his last six, we're backing an Atalanta win here.

Sevilla vs Atletico Madrid: Sevilla to win 1-0

Two Champions League hopefuls go head-to-head in southern Spain on Saturday night, as reigning champions Atletico Madrid face second-placed Sevilla. Diego Simeone might have got his team through to the knockout stages of the Champions League (just) but his side look miles away from defending their title.

A 2-0 defeat last week to biggest rivals Real Madrid left the champions 13 points off their city rivals with not even half of the season completed. It also meant successive defeats after a shock 2-1 defeat at home to Mallorca, their first home defeat since February.

Sevilla come into the game having only lost two games all season. Moreover, Los Nervionenses have won their last two, both 1-0 wins against Villarreal and Athletic Bilbao

SEVILLA TO WIN 1-0, 2-0 OR 2-1 @ 5/2

Hibernian vs Celtic: Hibs to win

The first major trophy of the season is up for grabs on Sunday, as Hibernian and Celtic battle it out at Hampden Park for the Scottish League Cup. Hibs have had some impressive wins to reach their first League Cup final since the 2015/16 season.

The most notable ones came in back-to-back 3-1 away wins first at an impressive Dundee United, before a shock win at Premiership champions and favourites for the trophy, Rangers. Celtic have had a more smooth journey to the final, however.

After an awkward second round 3-2 at home to Hearts, Celtic eased past Championship side Raith Rovers 3-0 before a 1-0 semi-final win over last season’s winners, St Johnstone. All odds will be pointing to Celtic, but Hibs will be looking to cause a shock and claim another League Cup.
