In the next three days, the focus will be on the extraordinary round of the English Premier League. We have longed for this championship after only one round in the last three weeks. The odds from the ticket were current at the time of its composition.
Morocco – South Africa – Morocco to Win @ 1.60 at betBonanza
We still consider Morocco to be the main candidate for winning the African Cup of Nations, and why wouldn’t they be when they are a team that, a little over a year ago at the World Cup, secured fourth place. In the group stage, the Moroccans played just enough to secure first place. They started with a win against Tanzania, then drew with Congo, and finally triumphed over Zambia. The Moroccans are here in their strongest lineup, including Bono, Hakimi, Marzaui, Ziyech, Amrabat, En-Nesyri, and all the others, so the Atlas Lions should not falter in a match like this against South Africa. The former World Cup host is far from its former quality, as evidenced by the fact that they do not have a single player in the so-called “top five” leagues. There are a few in Europe, so advancing to the knockout phase would be a success for them. They only defeated Namibia, albeit convincingly with a 4:0 score, lost to Mali at the start, and were further aided by a goalless draw with Tunisia, which knocked the Tunisians out of the championship.
A win for Morocco is offered at odds of 1.60 at betBonanza.
Leicester – Swansea – Leicester will win and Total OVER 2.5 @ 1.70 at betBonanza
Due to Leicester and Swansea’s commitments in the FA Cup, their Championship match scheduled for the 29th round has been moved to Tuesday. The Foxes were successful in the world’s oldest football competition, eliminating Birmingham with a 3:0 victory, while the Swans were convincingly defeated in Bournemouth, with the Cherries sending them back to Wales with a 5:0 result. In the league, Leicester is in a bit of a crisis, but still holds the top position with a solid seven or eight-point lead over their closest pursuers, Ipswich and Southampton. However, there’s still a lot to play for, and the Foxes, if they want a quick return to the Premier League, must start winning consistently again. In the last two rounds, they’ve only taken one point, losing in Coventry and drawing with Ipswich, so a triumph over Swansea is imperative. The Welsh side is in 16th place, not having lost all chances for a playoff spot, but we doubt that is their primary goal. In the first part of the season, Leicester celebrated a 3:1 victory in Swansea, and we expect a similar outcome now.
For the combination of Leicester will win and Total OVER 2.5 Goals the odds are 1.70 at betBonanza.
FC St. Pauli – Fortuna Düsseldorf – FC St. Pauli to Win @ 1.75 at betBonanza
It’s quite rare that these two teams met on Saturday in the 2. Bundesliga and are now playing in the quarterfinals of the German DFB Cup. It’s hard to say which duel is more significant for St. Pauli and Fortuna. The league match was won by the team from the suburbs of Hamburg as a guest, solidifying their first place in the 2. Bundesliga table, while Fortuna remained in 5th place, now trailing St. Pauli by 8 points. Had they won instead of losing, the gap would have been just two points. That’s how it is, and now it’s up to the team from Düsseldorf to try to quickly take revenge on St. Pauli and celebrate in the DFB Cup match to advance to the semifinals. This season, there could also be a sensation in the German Cup, considering that in the quarterfinals, there are only three teams from the Bundesliga, along with four from the 2. Bundesliga and one from the third league. Since Leverkusen and Stuttgart are meeting each other, hypothetically, there will be only two elite teams in the semifinals. St. Pauli’s primary goal is to qualify for the Bundesliga, to have at least one top-flight team in Hamburg, but they will not miss the chance to go to the final stages of the cup, which is highly valued in Germany.
We suggest a win for the home team, for which betBonanza offers odds of 1.75.
Winterthur – Basel – Both teams to score and Total OVER 2.5 @ 1.87 at betBonanza
Basel, by defeating the current champions and leaders of the Swiss Super League, Young Boys, did a favor to all teams hoping to dethrone the “young lads.” At the same time, the team from St. Jakob Park kept their theoretical chance alive to grab the 6th spot in the remaining two rounds of the regular season and qualify for the playoffs, which are being played for the first time this season. Winterthur, currently in that position, has 4 points more, and if Basel wins this away game, they will be only one point behind. However, not everything depends solely on the performance of these two teams, as Yverdon and Lucerne are also ahead of Basel. It would be a significant failure for the long-time, consecutive Swiss champions to play in the play-out instead of the playoffs, but this team has not been what it used to be for several seasons now. For Winterthur, in their second season in the elite, finishing in the top six would be a tremendous success, the biggest in their history. Both teams will play for the win, so goals can be expected. In the first part of the season, Basel celebrated a 5:2 victory at St. Jakob Park.
For Both teams to score and Total OVER 2.5 Goals, betBonanza offers odds of 1.87.
