Swansea City vs Manchester United prediction: 2
Man United have not been at their best so far this season, still they come into this game unbeaten so far, and have only conceded one goal in their 5 matches this term.
Louis van Gaal’s side have scored 2 goals in 3 league games but their midweek Champions League win in Belgium should ease the pressure on the pre-game favourites.
The confidence Wayne Rooney will have got in scoring his first hat trick in four years, and his first United goal in 878 minutes.
Louis van Gaal will be out for revenge after the Swans did the double over them last season.
Swansea have made a bright start to the new season where they are unbeaten in the campaign.
PRICE BOOST: 7.0 Man United to beat Swansea! Bet now >>
Eibar vs Athletic Bilbao prediction: 2
Eibar are top of the table before this round after a 3-1 win at Granada on Monday.
The Basques finished 18th in La Liga last season and were saved only by Elche’s tax problems. In total they lost 11/19 home games, going W1-D1-L8 against top-half finishers.
Having already won the two-legged Spanish Super Cup over Barcelona and played 4 Europa League qualifiers in the last month, Athletic Bilbao should have an extra edge in match fitness on Sunday.
Monaco vs PSG prediction: 2
Monaco may turn out to be PSG’s closest title challengers this season but there is still a significant gap in class between the sides. And the contrasting punching power of the two clubs in the transfer market was underlined by the fact Monaco left-back Layvin Kurzawa left for PSG for a fee of around £20 million on Wednesday.
Monaco have recorded 2 uninspiring draws in their last 2 Ligue 1 outings, and they required a strike from substitute Thomas Lemar – and some poor finishing from their opponents – to secure a 1-1 draw at Toulouse last time out.
The hosts were on their knees in midweek as they failed to overcome a 3-1 first leg deficit in the Champions League against Valencia despite winning the return leg 2-1.
Leonardo Jardim’s men have also struggled defensively this campaign and they have kept just 2 clean sheets in their 7 appearances so far.
PSG are yet to get out of second gear but already sit proudly on top of the table after they have gone on to win their opening 3 league games, against Lille (1-0), Ajaccio (2-0) and Montpellier (1-0).
