Manchester City v Chelsea prediction: X @ Half Time
PRICE BOOST: 7.0 Man City or 9.0 Chelsea! Bet now >>
Man City are aware that Chelsea love to play on the counter-attack in this type of game, and they’ll be careful not to risk too much too soon. Chelsea will be happy to keep the game compact, with chances at a premium.
In fact, 10 of the last 12 Premier League games between these two (home and away) have been draws at the break.
Wolves v Hull prediction: X
After just missing out on the playoffs on goal difference last time round, Wolves are among the favourites for promotion this season.
For now, Hull look to have the right attitude for the grind of the Championship as they try to win promotion back to the Premier League at the first attempt.
After opening day wins, both managers would be more than happy with a point from this one.
Stuttgart v Cologne prediction: X
Stuttgart had a very poor 2014/2015 season and, under new manager Alexander Zorniger, they will be looking to avoid being drawn into relegation battle once again.
Köln were an impressive outfit in the Bundesliga last season, and they are undefeated in 9 of their last 10 away matches against Stuttgart in all competitions.
Expect this to be an intense game from the off, with both teams trying to defend solidly.
Reims v Marseille prediction: X
After coming from behind to win 2-1 at Bordeaux last weekend Reims will be full of confidence.
The hosts are far from favourites for Sunday’s clash against OM, but they will be hoping to benefit from the visitors’ unusual situation to repeat the same kind of performance as last weekend.
Marseille will state be in a state following the unexpected resignation of Marcelo Bielsa last Saturday. The manager quit after his side’s 1-0 home defeat to Caen, leaving l’OM in disarray.
Caretaker coach Franck Passi has had a week to pick up the players but it will have been difficult.
