Real Madrid to compound Barcelona troubles in our continental treble
Barcelona’s first home loss in La Liga since April 2012 gives Real Madrid the chance to leapfrog their rivals for the first time this term and Los Blancos head our pan-European treble, which pays out at just under 7/2.
Real Madrid to beat Athletic Bilbao @ 4/6
La Liga leaders Barca’s shock 3-2 loss against Valencia at the Nou Camp has handed their Clasico rivals a chance to overtake Tata Martino’s side and they look certain to claim all three points in Basque country.
The last three matches between these teams at the San Mames have finished 3-0 to the visitors, an eventuality that can be backed at 14/1 to happen again here.
Real will be looking for their 11th win on the spin in all competitions against Los Leones, who have been beaten twice in their last three outings.
Bayern Munich to win HT/FT against Eintracht Frankfurt @ 4/11
Die Roten’s Bundesliga procession looks set to continue against Frankfurt, who hover perilously above the relegation zone in Germany’s top flight having won just four league matches all season.
Bayern can go 13 points clear at the top of the table with their 17th Bundesliga win in 19 games this term at 1/10, but we’ve gone with them to be leading at the end of both halves here at more attractive odds.
They’ve won their last three in the league at home after taking an early lead, with the deadlock broken in two of those matches within the first five minutes.
Juventus -1 to beat Inter Milan @ 19/20
The Old Lady are still ahead in the race for the Scudetto by six points, despite following up a 1-0 Coppa Italia loss at Roma with a 1-1 league draw in the Eternal City against Lazio four days later.
Their troubles in the capital aside, Juventus have been superb when faced with Italian opposition so far in this campaign, winning 18 of their 21 Serie A matches this term, with a 1-1 draw at Inter and a 4-2 loss at Fiorentina the only other occasions on which they have dropped points.
Each Italian club that’s visited Turin this term has left with nothing but tales of woe and only Verona, AC Milan and Udinese have managed to escape the Juventus Stadium without being beaten by at least two strikes.
Juve face an Inter outfit that’s won just one of their last eight fixtures and while that was against ailing San Siro co-occupant’s AC Milan, recent away losses at Napoli, Lazio, Udinese and Genoa do not bode well for Walter Mazzarri’s team’s hopes as they travel west.
New Nerazurri owner Erik Thohir may have stumped up the cash to bring in midfielder Hernanes and defender Danilo D’Ambrosio, but Inter would struggle to win at Juventus with 12 players on the pitch, so the hosts are readily taken to overcome the minimum handicap mark.
