Everton vs Chelsea
English Premier League
Date: 6 August 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Goodison Park (Liverpool).
Everton and Chelsea will close an exciting first Saturday of the season in the English top flight as they meet each other in the late afternoon at Goodison.
Chelsea should enter the tie as pretty big favorites, even bigger than the 1.70 odds offered for their victory suggest.
The Blues did lose important defenders Antonio Rudiger (namely) and Andreas Christensen on free transfers to La Liga heavyweights Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively, but they have managed to acquire Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli to fill the void in the back line.
Thomas Tuchel’s team failed to sign numerous transfer targets this season after losing Romelu Lukaku, but they will managed to get hands on Raheem Sterling who could represent a fantastic addition in the final third.
It will be very interesting to see the former Manchester City winger in action on Saturday past the leaky Everton defense.
Sterling was on target in a 1-3 victory over Serie A side Udinese in Chelsea’s final pre-season check seven days ago.
Everton barely avoided the drop following an underwhelming campaign last time out since ten points from the final six rounds left them in the elite.
Nonetheless, the Toffees will enter the new season without star man Richarlison who left for Tottenham.
The list of acquisitions is by no means promising, including the likes of James Tarkowski, Dwight McNeil, and Ruben Vinagre. The Toffees may like by in for another relegation-threatened campaign.
Everton vs Chelsea Head-to-head
- Everton will try and repeat the performance from the last time when they hosted Chelsea. The Toffees won 1-0 at the start of May.
- None of the last four head to head games provided three or more goals.
- Chelsea have won just one of the previous four encounters with the Toffees.
Everton vs Chelsea Prediction
Although Everton scored seven goals in the last two wins in friendlies against Blackpool and Dinamo Kiev, we really struggle to see how they could stay competitive here against Chelsea.
Chelsea shouldn’t drop the ball here. We are going for the away win as the main pick at the 1.70 odds, while you can also try with Raheem Sterling to score anytime in his Chelsea debut in the Premier League at the odds of 2.75.
Transfer News: Chelsea and Arsenal agree deals for new wingers

AC Milan vs Salzburg
Europe – Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 2 November 2022
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
Both AC Milan and Salzburg are in the running for a spot in the knockouts of the Champions League, and currently they are separated by a single point in the group table. In this final match-day of the group stage, expect a fierce clash between the two.
Milan are the reigning Italian champions, and they of course have that confidence going into this crucial game. Moreover they are at home for this final group stage fixture, where they will be vociferously cheered on by their loyal fans.
It is also to be noted that they are champions of one of the top-five leagues in Europe, who are pitted against an opponent from a league that is nowhere near the Serie A in terms of quality.
Moreover, pressure is not something new for the Italian title-holders. The last season they were chased by arch-rivals Inter Milan almost through the entirety of the second half of the season, and they still managed to lift the trophy at the end.
As such, expect a confident and determined bunch of Milan players at the Stadio Giuseppe this Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Salzburg are ready for the fight. They already recorded a draw in the reverse fixture, and will be willing to give it all at this final hurdle.
They have been on a good run for quite some time – so much so that their only defeat in the past three months came against the two-time European champions Chelsea.
Furthermore, they are on a long streak of great performances on the road. In fact, the last they lost away from home was back in July, and before that in April.
Surely expect a thrilling encounter this Wednesday, as the two lock horns. Anticipate goals from either end of the pitch.
AC Milan vs Salzburg Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture ended in a 1-1 draw.
- Other than that AC Milan have a 100% winning record.
- They kept clean sheets in all but one clash so far.
- The combined scorecard for the past three meetings is 5-1, in their favor.
AC Milan vs Salzburg Predictions
Milan are on a winning streak at the moment, and they scored ten goals from the past three fixtures. They are also at home, where they have been on a great run for quite some time now.
On the other hand, Salzburg too are in great form. They even managed to deliver some great performances away from home, and scored in plenty all through this stretch.
Expect a high-scoring thriller in this final group-stage game between the two.

Juventus vs PSG
Europe – Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 2 November 2022
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium.
The Parisians could be counted as the best team in Europe at the moment, after of course Manchester City. But it is no argument that their fearsome front trio is finally clicking, and they will be the favorites to pull off one more win this Wednesday against Juventus.
The Old Lady are just in so much mess. They are not even in the conversation for the title in the Serie A, and their European exploits this season has been simply subpar.
As of now they are placed second to last in the table, level with the dead-last placed Maccabi Haifa. They managed to win just once so far this whole campaign, and no points for guessing against whom the sole win was registered – Maccabi.
And more than that, apart from that win, the former Italian champions have a 100% losing record. After defeating Haifa at home, the Italians lost the very next fixture against the same opponent.
Also, disregarding the bottom-most placed team, the Italians scored the least number of goals as well as conceded the most in the group.
Meanwhile, the Parisians just got no chill. They scored the most in the group, and conceded the least. Just the last match-day, they slotted seven goals past their opponent, with all three of their front trio getting on the scoresheet.
Moreover, the reverse fixture also ended in a win for the French champions.
Surely expect the in-form PSG to deliver another win this Wednesday against the struggling Juventus.
Juventus vs PSG Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter ended in a 2-1 win for PSG.
- The last four clashes had goals from both teams.
- Previous four meetings had three or more goals.
- Not once have the hosts kept a clean sheet at this ground.
Juventus vs PSG Prediction & Analysis
Juventus lost their latest CL game by conceding four goals, and all through this season they have been struggling with their defense. On top of that they are already out of contention for a spot in the Round of 16, and now all that remains for them is a third-place finish.
On the other hand, the Parisians are going after the top-most spot. They are in great form, and they also defeated this rival in the reverse match-up.
It is also to be noted that the last Christophe Galtier’s men lost was back in March, against arch-rivals Monaco.
By the looks of things, surely expect a win for PSG this Wednesday. And considering that both teams will be going for a win, chances are high for goals to come in plenty
