Upsets of the weekend: 28-29 Oct 23

This week's standout upsets were all UK-based as Superbru players were caused some pain in our Premier League, Scottish Premiership and Championship Predictor games.

Here’s a look at the most unpredictable results we saw over the weekend on Superbru Football. That is, the football scores that were predicted by the smallest % of people across the football tournaments that we run.

3rd: Chelsea 0-2 Brentford (Premier League)

3.1% of the community predicted a Brentford win

Perhaps a surprise inclusion on this week's list given that Brentford always win at Chelsea and the Blues probably aren't good enough this season for it to be a major upset when beaten, but lots of us were caught out here! Brentford's form prior to this match hadn't been great and Mauricio Pochettino's Chelsea were showing enough promise for 87% of the community to predict a home win.

Instead, we saw Brentford cope fairly comfortably for the majority of this game before managing a goal through Ethan Pinnock's back post header. Like many before it, this upset was completed in textbook fashion with a breakaway second goal after Chelsea goalkeeper Robert Sanchez had gone up the other end to try and score from a corner, only to concede himself while chasing Neal Maupay and Bryan Mbeumo back towards his own net.

2nd: Hibernian 0-0 Celtic (Scottish Premiership)

2.2% of the community predicted a draw

For only the second time this season so far, Celtic failed to win a Scottish Premiership match at the weekend which means just like the first time, they end up on this list. 97% of us expected a routine win for the champions at Hibernian but they were held to a goalless draw instead.

A solid result for Hibs who had been hammered 4-0 at Rangers the week before, so they'll now hope they can finally get a win on the board against Ross County on Tuesday night having failed to pick up a victory in their last 4 league fixtures.

1st: Middlesbrough 0-2 Stoke City (Championship)

1.9% of the community predicted a Stoke City win

We're only 14 games in, but this has already been a season of two halves for Middlesbrough as after failing to win any of their opening 7 games, Michael Carrick's team won 6 on the bounce. Therefore, the large majority of our Championship Predictor players expected a home win over Stoke at the weekend, only to see a 0-2 defeat for Boro instead.

Boro fans will of course be hoping that this isn't the start of another 7-match losing run, but Alex Neil's Stoke deserved their win after picking up both of their goals inside the first 40 minutes. The Potters had a fairly slow start to the season themselves, winning just 2 of their first 8, but have now won three on the bounce after this victory and all three were against strong opposition (also Sunderland and Leeds).

Did you manage to correctly predict any of these outcomes? Let us know in the comments.
