Mythbusters: 4 favourites you shouldn't back this weekend
We scan the Premier League, League One, Serie A and Bundesliga for the underdogs worth getting behind on Saturday.
Man City not to beat Tottenham –
Four of Manchester City's last five Premier League wins have come by one goal, suggesting that a game in which they are eventually held is imminent.
And there is no side more capable of taking points from the leaders than Tottenham.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have already beaten Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund this season, took four points from Pep Guardiola’s team last term and beat City at the Etihad the season before that.
Rotherham not to beat Plymouth –
Rotherham are odds-on favourites for this game, despite the fact their brilliant early-season home form has come to a sudden end.
The Millers have lost three straight home games at the New York Stadium, including defeat to Gillingham, who are only one place above Plymouth.
The visitors have lost just one of their last four away matches in the league, including an impressive win at Bradford and creditable draw at Blackburn.
Napoli not to beat Torino –
Napoli have taken just one point and scored only one goal from their last three matches in all competitions, as part of a run that has seen them win three of their last eight.
And Torino are certainly in the form to take advantage of Maurizio Sarri’s faltering side.
The hosts impressively beat Lazio 3-1 on Monday evening, and have only lost one of nine home matches this term.
Dortmund not to beat Hoffenheim –
Peter Bosz was sacked as Dortmund’s manager after their weekend defeat to Werder Bremen, and new boss Peter Stoger has quite a job on if he is to turn things around against Hoffenheim.
The hosts did win against bottom-half Mainz on Tuesday, but were without a win in their previous nine games, and face considerably better opposition on Saturday.
Hoffenheim are sixth having lost just three of their last nine, so are certainly playing well enough to get a positive result.
