RB Leipzig not to beat Hannover

With Ralf Rangnick standing in as manager for one season only, there was always going to be some uncertainty at RB Leipzig, and that has been reflected in their start to the season.

Saturday’s hosts followed their opening-weekend 4-1 defeat to Borussia Dortmund with a 1-1 home draw to Fortuna Dusseldorf last time out, and could find life similarly difficult on Saturday.

Hannover have drawn both of their opening two matches, including a creditable 0-0 with Borussia Dortmund before the international break, and were only downed by a late Leipzig comeback in this fixture last season.

Arsenal not to beat Newcastle

A combination of missed chances and a comical own goal have cost Newcastle points in 2-1 home defeats to Tottenham and Chelsea so far this season, so they are a good bet to take something against Arsenal.

Rafael Benitez’s side are stubborn defensively – they went down by the same scoreline despite conceding early at Manchester City last time out – and won all of their last three home matches against the top six last season, including against the Gunners.

There have been signs of progress in attack for the visitors, but they have lacked any control defensively so far this season, which could cost them here.

Barcelona not to beat Real Sociedad

A victory in January was Barcelona’s first in eight attempts at Real Sociedad, an astonishing record that could get worse on Saturday.

The La Liga champions edged over the line at Real Valladolid in their only league away game so far, and won just two of their last six on the road in the league at the end of last season.

Sociedad are yet to play at home this season, but won all of their last four at the Anoeta Stadium at the end of last term, including a 3-0 victory over Atletico Madrid.

Manchester United not to beat Watford

After winning each of their opening four league games of a season for just the second time in their history, Watford are a fair bet to at least avoid defeat against Manchester United.

The Hornets have lost just two of their last seven home games against the fabled top six, winning two from two since appointing Javi Gracia – a 4-1 win over Chelsea, and the 2-1 victory against Tottenham last time out.

Victory over an out-of-sorts Burnley a fortnight ago may have taken the heat off Jose Mourinho a little, but his Manchester United side have still won just one of their last four league away games.
