With the likes of La Liga and the Premier League once again stealing centre stage this weekend, we are treated to another stacked schedule from across Europe.
For those of you who are looking to stick on a Sunday flutter, we have found a couple of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for.
16:30 Everton vs Arsenal
Heading into September’s international break with a dramatic late flurry as they landed a 3-1 victory at home against historic rivals Manchester United, Arsenal will be looking to mark their return to Premier League action with another flurry here. Despite suffering title heartbreak last season as they missed out on the chance to get their hands on a first domestic crown since 2004, the Gunners have continued to shine following the summer interval.
Mustering 10 points from their opening four Premier League appearances and with their sights firmly set on mounting another title charge this time around, Mikel Arteta’s young squad should find the mood in their camp at an extended high.
Opening the 2023/24 campaign with a lively 2-1 victory at home against Nottingham Forest last month, the one-time Manchester City coach has seen his side gain a reputation for their free-scoring performances in the final third.
Smelling a golden chance when they travel to Goodison Park this weekend, Sunday’s guests are rightfully tipped as a standout contender here.
On the flip side, while Arsenal might find themselves battling it out at the top of the Premier League table, Everton find themselves in the midst of another public struggle.
Still dealing with some rather glaring issues behind the scenes at Goodison, it is no secret that Sean Dyche finds mounting pressure on his shoulders in the blue half of Merseyside.
Mustering just a single point from any of their opening four Premier League appearances and marking their return on Sunday afternoon battling it out in the drop zone, the former Burnley boss will be more than aware that his downbeat squad faces another heavyweight challenge here.
Hit with a routine 4-0 drumming when they travelled to north London for their most recent meeting against the Gunners back on March 1st, we are expecting a similar away victory for the title contenders here.

20:00 Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad
Coming under plenty of scrutiny last season as they eventually missed out on the chance to defend their La Liga crown by a 10-point deficit, Real Madrid certainly had plenty of scrutiny under their shoulders when opening up the 2023/24 campaign. Heading into September’s international break in the midst of an extended purple patch, Los Blancos should be relishing a return to domestic duties this weekend.
Last seen claiming a dramatic late winner as they snatched a 2-1 victory against Getafe, Carlo Ancelotti’s men have won each of their opening four top-flight appearances and they are the only La Liga outfit that can boast a 100% start to proceedings.
With England international Jude Bellingham remarkably notching five strikes in just his first four La Liga outings, the former Borussia Dortmund star will be looking to lay down another marker on Sunday night.
Opening this weekend’s fixtures holding a two-point buffer over the chasing pack, the former AC Milan boss has also seen his squad gain a reputation for their continued success on home soil.
As for Real Sociedad, while the Basque-based outfit might have finally collected their first La Liga victory at the fourth attempt last time out, Imanol Alguacil with a headache over his side’s extended defensive struggles.
Opening the 2023/24 campaign with three stalemates on the spin, La Real have also mustered just a single clean sheet from any of their previous six top-flight showdowns continuing on from last season.
Although Sunday’s guests might have impressed many as they landed a lucrative top-four finish earlier in the year, Alguacil’s men will be more than aware that they face a stern examination in the capital on Sunday night.
Likewise, claiming just a pair of wins from any of their last nine La Liga appearances away from the Anoeta Stadium, we are backing what could be an enjoyable home victory this weekend.
