We've compiled our best football tips, including win/draw/win and total goals, into one bite-size betting preview for Sunday's matches.
Atletico Madrid to beat Espanyol & under 4.5 goals (13:00)
Atletico Madrid have taken seven points from their first three matches of the season, including 1-0 and 2-1 wins against Celta Vigo and Elche.
Diego Simeone’s side have won five of their last six league games overall, with under 4.5 goals landing in all of them.
Espanyol haven’t scored yet this season, losing 1-0 at Mallorca last time out.
Gerard Deulofeu (Udinese) to score v Spezia (14:00)
Deulofeu has scored in both of Udinese’s Serie A matches so far this season, including against Juventus, despite only appearing from the bench in both.
He has racked up 0.73 xG in 60 minutes of action, and should return to the starting line-up on Sunday.
Spezia have conceded eight goals in two Serie A matches.
Cardiff to win or draw v Nottingham Forest & under 3.5 goals (14:30)
Only two of the 10 Championship matches featuring these two sides have featured over 3.5 goals so far this season.
Nottingham Forest haven’t scored more than one goal in any of their five games, losing four and drawing one. They rank bottom for xG from open play, with Chris Hughton facing the sack.
Cardiff have won one and drawn one of their two away games, and only been beaten once in five overall.
Liverpool to beat Leeds (16:30)
Liverpool have made a promising start to the season, easily seeing off Norwich and Burnley before a 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s side look much more like the 2019/20 Premier League champions with Virgil van Dijk back in their side and they should beat Leeds on Sunday.
Though they could be missing Alisson and Fabinho for this match, those absences will not be as keenly felt as that of Raphinha for the hosts, who have taken two points from their opening three games.
Real Madrid to beat Celta Vigo and Karim Benzema to score (20:00)
Benzema has only scored in one of Real Madrid’s opening three games so far this season, but a return to form should be imminent.
He ranks seventh in La Liga for shots per game and has scored in six of his last nine league home matches – all of them wins.
Celta Vigo have lost two of their three matches so far, only avoiding defeat in a 0-0 draw against Osasuna.
