Coral are back with more brilliant continental betting tips ahead of exciting weekend action in the Bundesliga and La Liga. So, if you fancy a dabble on the best battles in Germany and Spain, pull up a stool and read on for your latest European fix…
Bayern Munich v Werder Bremen – Pizarro 7/2 to poach anytime
Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich have been dealt several blows of late, and are now without a win in two league tussles. So, what a time to face a formidable old friend in former Allianz Arena forward Claudio Pizarro.
The Peru predator spent three seasons as a Munich Marksman but returned to Weserstadion for a third stint this summer and has stormed to 11 league strikes in 22 outings.
As it happens, potent Pizarro is just one goal away from equalling Werder’s all-time league scorer record of 101, having already hit his century of strikes for the Bremen boys. How fitting would it be to achieve that against his old club?
“I hope that we can score at Bayern, and preferably through a goal of mine,” Pizarro told press.
“We’ve still got nine games left this season. I think I will do it [equal the record]. Maybe even in Munich.”
Bremen have bagged eight goals in their previous two games, with their poacher Pizarro sinking four, which makes the Peruvian superb at 7/2 to put one past his old employers anytime.
Atletico Madrid v Deportivo de La Coruna – Griezmann grabs opener at 13/5
Inspirational Antoine Griezmann has a penchant for being first on target, with a tremendous 10 of the Frenchman’s 22 goals for Atletico this term in all competitions being the opener.
The sought-after striker has notched three in his past three outings, with two of those opening goals, and dispatched first against Deportivo as half of his double against them in April 2015.
As for the Blues and Whites of La Coruna, the Galician guys have leaked seven times in their previous two games, meaning attacking instigator Griezmann is fantastic at 13/5 to draw first blood again.
Bayer Leverkusen v Hamburg – Dinosaurs 4/1 to win
There are just two Bundesliga places and five points between midtable German top-tier teams Bayer and Hamburg, a gap which could be cut significantly on Sunday.
Leverkusen are a fashionable name at the moment but, hitman Javier Hernandez’s goals have dried up over the last three games and Bayer are without a win in four across all competitions.
With that in mind, revived Hamburg are truly tasty at 4/1 for a win on the road, with wingman Nicolai Muller in magnificent form and the Dinosaurs having proven a thorn for this opposition with three victories and a draw from their past five meetings.
Sevilla v Villarreal – Bathtubs 29/10 to win and both teams score
Back in Spain, Sunday should provide another intriguing contest, as Champions League spot chasers Sevilla try to make up ground on surprise package Villarreal.
The Bathtubs and Yellow Submarine have both gone a little off track of late, but should be motivated to make a splash here, as the pair vie for fourth place.
Sevilla have sunk Villarreal in five of their previous seven scuffles, most notably winning all of their wrangles with the Yellow Submarine as they met four times in all competitions last campaign.
From those most recent seven frays between these familiar foes, both teams got on the scoresheet in five. So, back the Bathtubs at 29/10 to win on home soil but both teams to draw blood.
