Looking for expert betting tips for this weekend's matches? Marathonbet has got you covered with expert previews and analysis for selected matches.


European League Matches Previews and Predictions

All over Europe, leagues are moving towards the end of the first half of matches needed to determine the champions. The season is far from over and there will be changes in ranking across the tables as only the consistent amongst them will challenge for the title or secure a place in one of the European competitions.

The Bundesliga, English Premier League, Spanish La Liga, Italian Serie A, and the French Ligue 1 are the top five leagues in Europe. They are also the competitions which punters across the world follow, focus on, and wager on the most. The matches from these leagues entice bettors because their data and statistics are easily found and worked on by tipsters and bettors alike.

The fact that their data is found on most prediction sites on the internet does not mean it is always easy to wager and win on the matches. This is a reason to stick with a tested, trusted, and reliable site that offers both predictions and betting like Marathonbet.

Another weekend of matches is upon us and our team of experts has researched and analysed selected matches from some of Europe’s top leagues for our readers to consider before placing their wagers.


A match between the defending champion of England and their historic main rival, who are seeking to win a first league title since 2013. The ongoing season has not been smooth for Liverpool as they had to contend with injuries of important players and some inconsistent results that followed. Manchester United have gradually climbed up the table after a poor start to the season, which included a 1-6 drubbing at home to Tottenham Hotspur. Now Manchester United sit proudly at the top of the Premier League table following their midweek win at Burnley, three points ahead of the pack.

This game sees the Premier League’s best home record, Liverpool’s W7 – D1 – L0, up against the top away record, with Manchester United’s form on the road also standing at W7 – D1 – L0. Will either team suffer their first loss to dent these statistics in this match?

Recent league form in this fixture is also evenly matched over the previous six games. Liverpool have won the last two, then there were two goalless draws, and Manchester United won the two games prior to that.

Liverpool has a fearsome attack which can deliver at any moment. On the other hand, their opponent possesses a fast and youthful forward line which also delivers the goods on a regular basis. Both teams’ defences could be their undoing, with just two clean sheets each in their previous six matches. Liverpool also boast an unbeaten home run stretching over two seasons, but we think Manchester United can finally end this run given their form of late.

TIP : Manchester United to win


A game between an in-form Inter Milan, who flatter to deceive on a regular basis and have now gone two games without a win, against a Juventus team who have dominated Italian Serie A for the past nine seasons. Despite their attractive playing style and great forward line, Inter Milan tend to disappoint on the biggest of stages. They led the Serie A table for the majority of the early 2019/20 season, before eventually finishing runners-up behind Juventus, who always seem to find a way to win over the years. With both teams finding clean sheets hard to come by this season, each have only kept the opposition out twice in their last 10 league games, they may focus on their attack to cover up any defensive deficiencies . Inter Milan currently boast one of the most in-form duos in European football. Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez are banging in goals regularly and delivering the results needed for the title attempt, while Juventus are dependent on Cristiano Ronaldo to bail them out in almost every situation, as shown by the fact Juventus are yet to win a match this season in which he was absent. As earlier highlighted, Inter Milan tend to struggle when the big boys are in town and for that reason we are backing a Juventus team buoyed by their recent victory over previously unbeaten leaders AC Milan to claim the full points here too.

TIP : Juventus to win


Two struggling teams going head-to-head against each other will surely offer some form of entertainment and suspense. The season has not been what either team had hoped as they both find themselves sitting in the bottom three places in the Ligue 1 table. Both teams have problems in different areas, Dijon in front of goal as they are the league’s lowest scorers with just 12 goals to date. However, Lorient’s main problems are in defence, conceding 38 goals in their opening 19 matches. With a win vital for both teams, we think the upcoming match promises to produce goals in abundance.

TIP : Over 2.5 goals
