With a good h2h record at home, we can expect Real Sociedad to be confident to get a result here. Barcelona are struggling in away games and we have seen this in their 2-1 defeat against Athletic Bilbao in the first leg of the Copa Del Rey round of 16 clash. Therefore, the recommended pick for this game is to back Sociedad to stay unbeaten.
Roma are a formidable unit while playing in front of their home fans. Their only home defeat in all competitions this season came against F.C Porto in the Champions League qualifier at the start of the campaign. Since then, it has been a run of 11 unbeaten games, winning 10 of those. Any key point to note is the number of goals they score at this same venue. They have scored 3 or more goals in 9 of the 11 matches in all competitions this season.
Senegal started on a high note, and will be looking to continue with that momentum as one of the tournament favourite. However, Zimbabwe smartly escaped the hurdle of Algeria, and almost exceeded many pundit expectation. These makes the Thursday clash between them evenly poised.
Therefore, I will be expecting an almost balanced game with at least 2 goals scored by the two teams combined. I will also predict a victory for the "Terenga Lions".
Algeria had a naive start to their 2017 AFCON campaign, the desert warrior are tipped favourite to win this tittle considering the talents in their possession. On the other hand, Tunisia started the championship on a bad note, a circumstance they will be working hard to change immediately.
Therefore, this promises to be an action packed game with over 2 goals. I will also predict a win for the Algerians.
The physiological advantage is with Bolton Wanders here and they will be under little pressure as they are coming against a team from the Premier League. The 0-0 draw in the first leg had set the perfect platform and they will be coming here with great confidence.
Crystal Palace are win-less in the last 8 games in all competitions and are on the back of 3 consecutive home defeats. They have also tasted defeats in 6 of their last 7 home games. The stats are all against them and we believe Bolton will remain unbeaten by the end of 90 minutes.
