Due to FA Cup, we have nothing on the Premier League, but that doesn’t mean we are taking a break. Out top tips are coming from The Spanish La Liga, the German Bundesliga and the French Ligue 1.
Villarreal vs. Atletico Madrid (La Liga – Round 29)
Atletico Madrid have always been one of the best defensive sides in Europe. This season they’ve conceded just 12 goals in 28 La Liga rounds and they are sitting 2nd in the standings 8 points behind leaders Barcelona. They’ve lost just 2 matches all season long, one against Barcelona and one against Espanyol, both away. They travel to play Lokomotiv Moscow on Thursday for the 2nd leg of the Europa League knock-out stages but they already secured their place in the quarter-finals after smashing the Russian team 3-0 on their turf. Villarreal are a decent side sitting 6th in the standings fighting Sevilla and Girona for an European spot. Head-to-head Villarreal are unbeaten since 2015 winning 3 of their last 5 mutual encounters against Atletico Madrid. But this season the things look better for the visitors and they should have enough to win this match, secure their 2nd place in the standings maintaining the pressure on leaders Barcelona. Best pick for the match: Atletico Madrid to win at 2.0 with Unibet.
RB Leipzig vs. Bayern Munich (Bundesliga – Round 27)
Bayern Munich are 20 points clear at the top of the table and it’s only a matter of time till they will be awarded the Bundesliga trophy. Everything might finish in the next 2 rounds as they need just 4 points to be mathematically champions. Already qualified in the Champions League quarter-finals and with the international break starting next Monday, Bayern will surely maintain their rhythm and try to finish this great period in style with another important win against 6th-placed RB Leipzig. It looks like the hosts can’t perform at their highest level in both Bundesliga and Europa League. They are winless in their last 4 Bundesliga fixtures, but they won 2-1 the Europa League match against Zenit Petersburg, having great chances to advance in the quarterfinals of the competition. We expect Bayern to enter this match with their best starting XI and extend their amazing run with another win. Best pick for the match: Bayern Munich to win at 1.7 with Pinnacle.
Marseille vs. Lyon (Ligue 1 – Round 30)
This clash in the most anticipated match of the weekend in the French Ligue 1. We are talking about 2 great attacking sides with incredible strikers who are scoring goals for fun and are capable of deciding a match on their own. Marseille have a tough trip on Thursday when they will play against Athletic Bilbao in Europa League, but they are still fighting for a top 2 finish in Ligue 1 as they are 4 points behind 2nd-placed AS Monaco, so this match is a must win for them. We expect a high-scoring affair, a thrilling encounter with many scoring opportunities from both sides and with at least 3 goals in the match. The over 2.5 goals in the match is priced at 1.71 with Unibet which is very good, but we will go further and combine 2 markets for better odds. Best pick for the match: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in the game at 1.95 with Coral.
