WIN/DRAW/WIN

Charlton to beat Birmingham

Second-placed Charlton are unbeaten in their first six matches back in the Championship and have dropped just four points so far.

The Addicks have won back-to-back league games and beat Brentford 1-0 in their last match at The Valley.

Birmingham have lost their last three away games in all competitions 3-0 and failed to even have a shot on target last time out against Swansea.

Exeter to beat Leyton Orient

Exeter went two points clear at the top of League Two with their 3-1 win at Carlisle last weekend, extending their unbeaten start.

They have won five and drawn two of their opening seven matches, with their only dropped points at home coming after an 88th-minute equaliser against fourth-placed Swindon.

Leyton Orient’s 3-1 defeat at home to Swindon last weekend means they have won just one of their last six matches.

Salford to beat Cheltenham

Salford missed two penalties and registered 28 shots in their 2-2 draw with Morecambe last weekend – their fifth straight draw in the league.

The Ammies have taken points off in-form Plymouth and Port Vale in that sequence and have an excellent opportunity to end the run here.

Deadline-day signings Jack Baldwin and Jake Jervis are both too good for League Two and will benefit from an extra week at the club.

Cheltenham have lost 12 of their last 15 away games in all competitions without scoring.

RB Leipzig to win or draw v Bayern Munich & BTTS (17:30)

Leipzig have made an impressive start to the season, winning all of their four matches and scoring 12 goals.

They can take at least a point against Bayern Munich, who have been less convincing.

Niko Kovac’s side dropped points in a 2-2 draw against Hertha Berlin on the first weekend of the season and have failed to beat Leipzig away in any of their last three attempts.

Stade Rennes to beat Brest (19:00)

Second-placed Rennes are level on points with Paris Saint-Germain at the top of Ligue 1, having won three and lost one of their opening four matches.

Julien Stephan’s side beat the league leaders in their second league match and have won back-to-back away games.

Brest lost 3-0 away to strugglers Nimes last time out and have won just one of their four matches so far.

BTTS

Burton v Coventry

BTTS hasn’t landed at the Pirelli Stadium yet this season, but that should end on Saturday.

Burton have won their last two home matches 4-0 and 2-0, scoring nine goals in their last three overall.

Coventry have drawn 3-3 in two of their three league away games this season, while they beat Blackpool 3-2 last time out.

Crawley v Mansfield (15:00)

Crawley have scored in all of their seven league matches so far this season, with BTTS landing in five of them.

Gabriele Cioffi’s side rank first for shots per home game this term, while striker Bez Lubula is the joint-second highest goalscorer in League Two.

Mansfield’s Danny Rose tops that list. His side have scored twice in five of their seven matches this season.

MYTHBUSTER

Manchester United not to beat Leicester (15:00)

Having successfully tipped Manchester United to drop points at Southampton a fortnight ago, backing them to fall short again makes sense.

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s side have won just one of their last nine league matches, including dropped points against Crystal Palace and Cardiff in their last three at Old Trafford.

Leicester are considerably tougher opposition. Brendan Rodgers’ side are unbeaten this season, while their only defeat in seven away games was the 1-0 loss at Manchester City in May.

ANYTIME GOALSCORERS

Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus) to score v Fiorentina (14:00)

Backing the greatest goalscorer of all time to score at odds-against (at the time of writing) is obvious.

Ronaldo scored in Juventus’ win against Napoli a fortnight ago, before plundering five – including four against Lithuania – for Portugal during the international break.

Fiorentina shipped four to Napoli in their first game of the season and conceded three goals at home to three of the top four last season.

Jarrod Bowen (Hull) to score v Wigan (15:00)

Bowen has scored 14 goals in his last 15 appearances at the KCOM Stadium.

That run includes two in three at home this term, while he also ranks top of all Championship players for shots per game.

Wigan are without a clean sheet in 25 away games, including two 3-1 defeats on the road so far this season.
