As is expected of Betting Tips Africa’s sub-section SoccerVista, we are here with our weekly football-oriented write-up, which aims at enlightening and helping bettors win more, thus making more money.
With the 2023 domestic league campaigns in Europe’s top five leagues getting to the critical points, Soccer Vista will be taking a look at the most likely winners.
It is well-known that Europe’s top five leagues include the English Premier League, the Spanish La Liga, the German Bundesliga, the Italian Serie A and the French Ligue 1.
Together with our choice for most likely league winners, this article will also cover tactical and mental reasons for our choices. So, strap in and let’s get going.
Manchester City To Win The English Premier League
The English Premier League is certainly the most commercially strong league in the world. It is also the most exciting, unpredictable and competitive. The pace, intensity and directness make it really difficult for players to adapt; however, it is also the most appealing to them.
This season, the Premier League has seen Arsenal lead for large parts. Under the tutelage of Spanish tactician Mikel Arteta, the Gunners swept everything in front of them for the first half of the season.
Despite leading their closest competitor Manchester City with at least eight points at a stage, it is increasingly difficult to see the Gunners lift the coveted trophy this season to end their seventeen-year drought.
At the time of this writing, the Gunners are in the second position on the EPL standings. Level on points with Manchester City, albeit with a game in hand.
Toe to toe, Arsenal have largely been unable to cope with the pressure of having Pep Guardiola’s men breathing down their necks. The players look jaded physically and mentally.
The likes of Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli seem to have lost conviction in the final third as they look hesitant when performing their final action, like shooting and crossing.
They are also relatively inexperienced when it comes to title races, and in football, the mental aspect is quite as important as the on-field tactics.
This gives Manchester City the advantage as they are far more experienced, have better quality and possess outstanding depth. If you agree that Manchester City is most likely to win the English Premier League, you can stake on the possibility with world-renowned Bookies like 1xBet, Betway and more.
It is an excellent opportunity to make huge money. Also, note that these Bookies are hosted on Betting Tips Africa, and you can get information on them here.
Barcelona To Win The Spanish La Liga
The Blaugrana have been in the midst of a financial crisis for the past few seasons. This situation led to the best player in their entire history, Lionel Messi, having to depart the Camp Nou for the comfort of Paris St Germain in France.
Barca had to activate various financial levers to manoeuvre the transfer window and largely succeeded. However, the job still needs to be completed. Some gaps still need to be filled in the squad, but one thing masks them all; Xavi Hernandez’s tactical setup.
The legendary Spanish ex-midfielder has implemented a possession-based Juego De Posicion tactical setup which has bamboozled the Spanish division. Even arch-rivals Real Madrid have yet to get a solution to stop Barca this season.
Currently, the Blaugrana lead Los Blancos with eight solid points and look like it will be a while before they are relinquishing any points. There are also experienced winners (Busquets, Lewandowski, Alba, Ter Stegen, etc) sandwiched between their insanely talented youngsters (Fati, Gavi, Pedri, Balde etc.), which gives the perfect blend for a title winning team.
If you believe that Barcelona has the best chance of winning the Spanish La Liga, you may bet on that probability with reputable bookmakers all around the world, such as SportyBet, Bet365 and Msport amongst others.
It is a fantastic opportunity to make a significant amount of money, as the odds are quite reasonable. It is also important to keep in mind that these Bookies are hosted on Betting Tips Africa and that you can obtain information on them here.
Bayern Munich To Win The German Bundesliga
The Bavarians have a great fight on their hands for the Bundesliga title. They currently lead the pack with forty-three points but have Union Berlin and Borussia Dortmund breathing down their necks with forty-two and forty points, respectively.
Bayern Munich have won the last nine consecutive Bundesliga titles, which shows their complete dominance of the league.
However, despite this season proving to be a three-horse race and any slip up could see Bayern miss out on the title, they are still heavy favourites to win. This is because they have the squad quality, the experience and the depth to ramp up the pressure and go all the way.
They also have theee of their players in the top Bundesliga goalscoring rankings with Jamal Musiala on ten goals, Serge Gnabry on nine goals and Eric Maxim Choupo Moting on seven goals.
This shows that they are scoring well, and goals are well distributed throughout the attack. Time will tell if the other contenders will be able to match Bayern all the way, but as things stand, the Bavarians are well poised to extend the gap at the top.
While being a logical and safe bet, anything can happen in football. However, if you believe Bayern have what it takes to take home the Bundesliga this season, stake on it with any of the prestigious Sportsbooks on Betting Tips Africa. Some of them include Premier Bet, Paripesa, Odibets and more.
Napoli To Win The Serie A
The Partenopei are in blistering form this season, having won nineteen games, drawn two and lost one at the time of this writing. Leading their charge for the title is none other than Nigerian physically imposing specimen Victor Osimhen.
The Super Eagles hitman is in the form of his life and has already banged in seventeen goals in eighteen matches whilst laying on three assists. His partner in crime, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, also has nine goals and nine assists in eighteen games, with both players forming a formidable strike force capable of striking fear into any calibre of opposition.
Napoli is highly likely to win the Serie A because, apart from their own blistering and irresistible form, their supposed opposition for the league crown have all been terrible this season.
Currently, Napoli is in possession of fifty-nine points, Inter Milan is on forty-four points, AC Milan has forty-one, and Juventus are on twenty-nine points after a financial breach caused a point deduction for the Bianconeri.
Napoli has also mastered an attacking scheme that allows them to create overloads and launch attacks effectively. This has benefitted the likes of Osimhen, and we can expect the Nigerian to score more goals.
Bettors can stake on Napoli to go all the way as they have the physical and psychological advantage over other teams in the division. Betting companies like Betking, 22Bet and more are ready to take bets in this regard.
PSG To Win The French Ligue 1
Paris St Germain are in the hunt to win the French Ligue 1 but may have a bigger fish to fry elsewhere. The Paris giants have their sights set on the prestigious and elusive UEFA Champions League which is why the have superstars such as Lionel Messi, Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappe in their ranks.
They are being hunted in the league by Olympique Marseille, who are just five points behind on the rankings. It looked certain that PSG would shift focus to the UCL if they went far, and Marseille would have a chance at the League.
However, the French giants are on the verge of exiting the competition, having lost the first leg at home to Bayern Munich. For bettors, it makes sense to back PSG to win the Ligue 1, especially if they fall to the sword of Bayern.
If you think PSG are going to win the league, you can provide an opportunity to earn more money for yourself by betting on this possibility with any of the Bookies hosted on Betting Tips Africa.
