Mr. Predictor's guide to the weekend

Ajax 1 v 2 PSV – Saturday 27 July – Dutch Super Cup – Over 2.5 Goals (1.45)

Ajax took home both the league and the cup in the Netherlands last season. They now host PSV in the Super Cup, but they come into the game having sold two of their best players for €150m. They have lost four of their last five Super Cup matches, while PSV have won four of their last five games in the season opener. The visitors beat Basel 3-2 in their Champions League qualifier on Tuesday and I think they will be better prepared for this match. I smell an upset here.

Arsenal 3 v 1 Lyon – Sunday 28 July – Friendly – Over 2.5 Goals (1.45)

Arsenal have won three of their four matches in pre-season and now return to London for the Emirates Cup. They’re facing Lyon, who have lost both of their friendly games so far. Over 2.5 Goals was a winning bet in both of those games, and it’s been the same in all of the Gunners’ four warm-up games too. As for the result, I’m going for a Home Win this time.

AC Milan 0 v 1 Benfica – Sunday 28 July – Friendly – Benfica Win (2.25)

AC Milan have only played one friendly so far this summer, which they lost 1-0 to Bayern. That’s fairly typical of their experiences at the ICC though, as they’ve now won just two of their previous ten games in the summer tournament. Benfica have won their last three friendlies, including two at the ICC. I think they will beat the Rossoneri here too.
