April 28th: Sunday’s European Double – 4/1 Special, Betting Tips & Predictions

With all eyes focused on Sunday’s north London derby, we have a stacked schedule on the cards this weekend.

As Europe’s elite offer a string of heavyweight affairs, we have plenty of interesting betting markets that are worth keeping an eye out for.

So, for those of you looking to stick on a Sunday flutter, we have found a pair of the most intriguing betting tips that are available.

14:00 Tottenham vs Arsenal 

While Arsenal might have suffered Champions League heartbreak away at German giants Bayern Munich last week, the Gunners certainly made a major statement earlier in the week. Putting in what was a stunning performance in north London as they stormed their way to a 5-0 romp against Chelsea, Mikel Arteta will be dreaming of a repeat display here.

At the heart of a Premier League title scrap and with their sights set on securing a first domestic crown since 2004, Sunday’s guests will be more than aware that they faced another season-defining affair this weekend.

Now securing consecutive Premier League victories and only suffering just a single top-flight loss since opening the New Year, Arsenal will also be excited by a stellar record against their arch-rivals.

Losing just one of their previous six Premier League showdowns against Spurs, it should also be highlighted that Arteta’s title contenders have collected 19 points from their last seven appearances away from the Emirates.

While Tottenham might have gained plenty of plaudits since appointing Ange Postecoglou last summer, Sunday’s hosts are seeking some recent stability.

Last seen putting in a woeful performance away at Newcastle as they slumped to a 4-0 drumming at St. James’ Park, the former Celtic boss has seen his squad win just a pair of their previous five Premier League outings.

Watching their dreams of clinching a Champions League return take a major dent since returning from March’s international break, Tottenham have also continued to gain a reputation for their glaring defensive struggles.

In fact, Spurs have remarkably recorded just a single clean sheet from any of their last 13 consecutive appearances across all competitions.

16:30 Mainz vs Koln 

Although Mainz might have found themselves at the heart of a Bundesliga crisis on either side of opening the New Year, Sunday’s hosts have come roaring back in a sensational fashion. Skyrocketing out of the relegation zone and gaining plenty of recent plaudits, the Carnival Club find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high.

Last seen snatching a 1-1 stalemate away at Freiburg, Bo Henriksen’s side are unbeaten in all of their previous five Bundesliga appearances and they should be smelling a golden opportunity here.

Breathing life back into their charge for top-flight safety, there is no doubt that attacking talisman Jonathan Burkardt will have a leading role to play at the MEWA Arena this weekend.

Once again getting on the scoresheet away at Freiburg last week and potentially attracting some summer interest, the 23-year-old has now notched five goals in his previous six Bundesliga appearances.

Likewise, recording four goals in as many appearances at the MEWA Arena, Burkardt will be confident of cashing in on a Koln squad who appear to be limping their way to a second-tier return.

Now suffering back-to-back 2-0 losses against Bayern Munich and Darmstadt, the Billy Goats currently sit five points adrift of Bundesliga safety and tipped as a landslide relegation contender over the final month.

Mustering just a single victory from any of their previous 10 Bundesliga outings – a run that stems all the way back to February 3rd – Sunday’s guests have also collected just a sole away win so far this season.

Hit with a woeful 5-0 drumming when they last travelled to Mainz back in October 2022, Timo Schultz’s side should be bracing themselves for a huge challenge here.
