SNF: 5 football tips for Saturday evening's matches
Fund your big night out with these football tips from the Premier League, Championship, Swiss Super League, Eredivisie and La Liga.
Manchester City to beat Chelsea (17:30)
Manchester City are so dominant that this looks a generous price for them to see off Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Pep Guardiola’s side have won seven consecutive Premier League matches, a run that includes wins over Tottenham and Manchester United, and have Raheem Sterling fresh after he was rested at Watford on Tuesday.
Chelsea have lost two of their last three Premier League matches, winning just two of their last five at Stamford Bridge.
Sheffield United to beat Reading (17:30)
Sheffield United won their last away game 3-2 at Brentford, and can repeat the trick at Reading on Saturday.
Chris Wilder’s side have won five of their last nine away games overall, scoring at least twice on the road six times this season.
The managerless Royals have conceded twice in all of their last three home matches, and lost their only home game against non-top six opposition this season, Norwich.
Young Boys to beat Thun (18:00)
Young Boys have won 14 of their 16 league matches this season, so look a safe bet to take three points on Saturday.
The league leaders have won all of their last five, scoring three goals in four of them, including a 3-1 victory at Basel last week.
Second-place Thun have only managed two victories from their last five games, so are unlikely to be able to deal with their impressive visitors.
Ajax (-1) to beat PEC Zwolle (18:45)
Ajax have won eight straight matches in the Eredivisie, with each of those coming by a margin of at least two goals.
Erik ten Hag’s side also have the best away record in the league, with their only defeat in seven coming against league leaders PSV.
Zwolle have lost four of their last six matches, so this looks a banker.
Barcelona to beat Espanyol (19:45)
Barcelona bounced back from a two-match winless run in La Liga to beat Villarreal 2-0 last Sunday.
The Blaugrana are top of La Liga after 14 matches and have lost just twice all season.
Espanyol have lost three of their last four league games and are winless in their last 18 league games against their city rivals.
