The major talking point this week was Manchester United's struggles. After losing to Bayern Munich 4-3, they have now lost their last three games in a row and will need to bounce back against Burnley on Saturday. Arsenal got their first Champions League win in six years.

Without further ado, Sports Brief looks at the top 5 betting tips for the weekend (Sept 23-24). All tips are quoted on 1Xbet.

Top 5 bets for the weekend

Bayern Munich vs. Bochum - Harry Kane to Score - 1.50

Harry Kane and Bayern Munich have made a great start to the season. They have won four of their six games this season and are second in the Bundesliga only on goal difference. In six games, excluding the Supercup, in which they lost 0-3, Kane has scored five goals, per Transfermarkt. The Englishman only failed to score against Borussia Mönchengladbach. He should have no problem scoring against a side that has conceded seven goals in their last two away games this season.

Man United vs. Burnley - Both teams to Score - 1.60

Manchester United have lost four of their six games this season. Burnley have one point in their first four games. Erik ten Hag's men have only kept one clean sheet this season, while Burnley have conceded in three of their four Premier League games this season. Three of their four games have landed Both Teams to Score; Man United's last four games have landed Both Teams to Score.

Arsenal vs. Tottenham - Bukayo Saka to Score - 2.62

The Gunners face their biggest test this season when they host high-flying Tottenham in a mouth-watering North London derby. Both sides have 13 points from four games and are two points behind leaders Manchester City. Bukayo Saka has played three games against Tottenham and scored five goals. Therefore, we're backing Saka to find the net again on Sunday afternoon.

PSG vs Olympique Marseille - PSG Win - 1.739

PSG were stunned last time out against Nice in Ligue 1 and head into this weekend looking to bounce back. They lock horns with bitter rivals Olympique de Marseille in the Le Classique derby. Marseille are mangerless after Marcelino quit after just three months in charge. Marseille have won just one of their last 16 visits to Parc des Princes. With Kylian Mbappe on top form, PSG should bounce back from a frustrating defeat last weekend.

Atletico Madrid vs. Real Madrid - Under 3.5 Goals - 1.28

Real Madrid have won all five of their La Liga games this season. They face Atletico in a tasty derby encounter. Atlético sit in seventh place with seven points from four matches. The last five La Liga encounters between these two have seen three or fewer goals scored. Therefore, in a match with high stakes like this, Under 3.5 Goals is highly likely.

Bellingham saves Madrid in UCL tie

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Jude Bellingham came to Real Madrid's rescue with a 94th-minute goal, securing a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Champions League newcomers Union Berlin on Wednesday.

Carlo Ancelotti's team, which boasts 14 Champions League titles, encountered formidable resistance from their determined German adversaries, who thwarted every Madrid attempt until Bellingham found the net in the final moments of the match. The young English star now has six goals from six appearances this season.
