Football betting tips: 


There is a return to action across all domestic leagues this weekend, and we have scoured through betting sites to collate a number of tips ahead of the action.

We have ventured into the Premier League, La Liga and Bundesliga for our four tips that feature a couple of different markets to cater for all punters.

Real Madrid play host to Real Sociedad in Spain, while Arsenal and Brentford make the away trips to Everton and Newcastle respectively. 

Finally, we have dabbled with the clash of Borussia Monchengladbach versus Darmstadt, in which both sides go in search of their first win this campaign.

Real Madrid to beat Real Sociedad

Despite being our first tip, the encounter between Real Madrid and Real Sociedad is the last to occur from our four selections.

Carlo Ancelotti's men are currently top of La Liga and are the only team with a 100 per cent record, and Madrid go in pursuit of continuing that perfect start that has seen them win four from four so far.

Los Blancos do not seem to be rueing the sale of Karim Benzema, as new-signing Jude Bellingham has made light work of Spain's top-flight so far.

The Englishman - who signed for €103 million (₹9,120,694,950) from Borussia Dortmund in the summer - has equalled Cristiano Ronaldo's record of scoring in his first four games for Real, bagging five of their eight goals in the league.

The hosts will hope to replicate a similar run this season, which saw them lose just once at home last campaign, as they have made an identical winning start of four straight wins to start the season.

Ex-Madridsta Takefusa Kubo has had a bright start for the visitors this term, and the Japanese star currently plays second fiddle to Jude Bellingham in the Pichichi Trophy race.

Kubo has had a hand in four (three goals and one assist) of Sociedad's seven goals, that has seen them make an unbeaten start themselves (W1 D3).

With the vibe at the Santiago Bernabeu being so positive at present, we believe that the home side will utilise the impactful crowd to their advantage and extend their unbeaten run against the visitors to four without defeat in Madrid.

The visitors have only played just one away game so far (0-0 vs Las Palmas) and with Ancelotti's men looking deadly, it would be no surprise to see Bellingham and co make easy pickings of Imanol Alguacil's side.

Arsenal To Beat Everton

Our second tip sees us travel to England for the clash between Everton and Arsenal.

The home side have had a less than impressive start to the season, picking up just one point from their four opening matches.

The Toffees have played two games at Goodison Park so far, but have been defeated 1-0 both times against Wolves and Fulham respectively.

Should the hosts fail to beat Arsenal - a feat they have achieved at home on the past three occasions - Sean Dyche could be the first managerial casualty in the Premier League since the season began.

Dyche-ball has seen Everton find the back of the net only twice this season, both against Sheffield United, and this will cause concern heading into a tie against the joint-third best defence in the division.

Mikel Arteta takes his side up north brimming with confidence, as the Gunners are unbeaten in their four games so far (W3 D1).

Arsenal have only played one away fixture at the time of writing, and they battled to a hard-fought 1-0 victory against a resolute Crystal Palace side.

Bukayo Saka will be instrumental to Arsenal this campaign and is currently the second favourite at 12/1 to be named PFA Player of the Year, showing how highly regarded the England winger is thought of.

On the back of a great season with Arteta at the helm, many will be questioning just how far the Gunners can go this season and with the current momentum, fans are toying with the idea of Arsenal winning a number of trophies this campaign.

The away side have won 39 of the 61 matches between these two sides, with the most recent encounter ending 4-0 to the Gunners. 

Although we expect the visitors to come out on top, we don't anticipate it will be done at a canter, but having scored in every game so far you just never know how convincing this one may be!

Borussia Monchengladbach to beat Darmstadt

This tie sees a contest between two of the bottom three in Bundesliga, with both sides failing to bag a win in any of their opening three matches.

Newly-promoted Darmstadt have faced a baptism of fire since their reintroduction to Germany's top-flight and have made their worst three-game start to a Bundesliga season in history.

The Lilies have played hosts just once this season and were pummelled by Union Berlin - who scored three goals while reduced to ten men - by four goals to one in week one, which has been a major contribution to them possessing the worst defence in the league.

Although, it is Monchengladbach who have faced the most shots (69) of any side in the Bundesliga, their one less goal conceded than today's opponent is nothing to rave about.

The visitors have had a tough start to the campaign, facing champions Bayern Munich and the ever-present Bayer Leverkusen in two of the opening three rounds.

Gerardo Seoane would not have predicted such a poor start, however a win at Darmstadt could alter the table's complexion immensely.

The departure of Marcus Thuram to Inter Milan through the transfer window is one that will sting for a while, but the visitors need to adapt rapidly to improve on last terms tenth placed finish.

Monchengladbach picked up the only point of the two on the opening day in which they wrestled to a 4-4 draw with Augsburg.

The Foals have only lost one of the seven head-to-heads between the two and must be buoyed by the worsened start of the hosts.

This one will not be a battle of class, but if Monchengladbach can take the lead we fully expect them to take all three points in a bid to climb the ladder.

Newcastle vs Brentford BTTS

After an opening day demolition job of Aston Villa, it could be forgiven for thinking Newcastle were going to pick up where they left off last season.

However, since then, the Magpies have suffered three straight defeats seeing them slump to 14th in the table.

Despite the unsettling results, the hosts have scored in three of their four matches and is a primary reason for our final tip.

The only time Newcastle have been kept scoreless season was on their trip to treble-winners Manchester City, a statistic that plenty of sides will share come May.

Eddie Howe's side have been involved in 5-1, 2-1 and 3-1 matches alongside their 1-0 defeat to City, so we are confident the attack comprising of Anthony Gordon, Alexander Isak and Miguel Almiron will have enough to break the deadlock on Saturday.

Should the hosts struggle to break down the Brentford back line, the bench consisting of Callum Wilson and Harvey Barnes is more than enough to pose a dangerous threat.

Brentford themselves have seen three of their four matches feature both teams scoring, with only their robust defence preventing a clean sweep in a 3-0 victory against Fulham.

The Bees enter the contest unbeaten (W1 D3) and are typified by their counter-attacking football that is attractive to watch for any neutral.

All three of the head-to-head clashes at St James' Park have seen both sides find the back of the net and with an average of 1.75 and 2 goals being scored in each game by two, we think both teams to score is an obvious choice in this one.
