The Premier League, the Bundesliga, Serie A and more all feature in this guide to our football experts' best bets this weekend...
"When the teams met in this fixture back in June, Madrid won 2-1. It was one of ten straight wins after the restart which saw them overtake Barcelona and win the title."
Dan Fitch looks at statistics from Opta to help find bets on the weekend Premier League games and he fancies Chelsea's match with Liverpool to get off to a lively start.
He says: "Since their 2019-20 title win was confirmed in June, Liverpool have conceded 15 goals in their eight Premier League games (W5 D1 L2) - their previous 15 league goals conceded came across a 23-game spell."
Back over 1.5 first-half goals between Chelsea and Liverpool at 6/42.5
Jake Osgathorpe is back for GW2 of the Premier League, using Infogol data to pick out the best goalscorer, booking and Same Game Multi bets for the highlight games.
He says: "Willian racked up 0.83 xG last weekend, getting in good scoring positions, and that was something he did well at Chelsea too from a wide position (0.27 xG/avg match 19/20). He looks over-priced to me to hit the net."
Manchester United's season begins against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday tea-time and our previewer Andrew Atherely has gone in-depth to find the betting value.
He says: "All nine of United's league wins with Fernandes were by at least a two-goal margin and eight were to nil, which reflects their all-round improvement."

Bundesliga - Correct Score Predictor
Using Expected Goals (xG) data from Infogol, Tom Victor provides Bundesliga result and scoreline predictions for the opening weekend of the 2020/21 season.
He says: "Bayern won this game 5-0 last season, and while it has the potential to be as one-sided again, the opening round of fixtures doesn't always throw up such devastating scorelines."
Bayern Munich v Schalke: Back the 3-1 @ 11/112.00
Serie A is back this weekend and the opening round of matches gets the Infogol analysis as Tom studies the stats to predict the scores.
He says: "Reigning champions Juventus weren't entirely convincing in defending their title last season, but they'll be determined to get this year's effort off to a fast start with their Champions League disappointment still stinging."
Juventus v Sampdoria: Back the 3-0 @ 8/19.00
If you yearn the days when football matches kicked off at 3pm on Saturdays then read Jack Critchley's Championship preview. He discusses a trio of matches and picks bets for each.
Jack says: "At 8/52.6 on the Exchange, the Cherries look superb value and they are likely to inflict a third consecutive defeat on their shot-shy hosts."
Middlesbrough vs Bournemouth - Bournemouth Win @ 8/52.6
Real Madrid play their first match of the new La Liga season on Friday night and Dan Fitch thinks they will beat Real Sociedad, as he previews the action from Spain.
He says: "When the teams met in this fixture back in June, Madrid won 2-1. It was one of ten straight wins after the restart which saw them overtake Barcelona and win the title."
Back Real Madrid to beat Real Sociedad at 4/51.77
After six winners from his opening nine picks of the season James Eastham reveals the smartest bets from the latest round of matches in France.
He says: "Memphis Depay and Moussa Dembele were rested for most of Lyon's previous outing, against Montpellier on Tuesday night. The presence of either or both on the pitch at kick-off this Friday evening would give the entire side confidence and add the cutting edge clearly lacking last time."
Best Bet: Back Lyon -1.5 Asian Handicap at home to Nimes @ 11/102.1
