Valencia vs. Barcelona (La Liga – Round 13)
If at the start of the season someone was saying that Barcelona will be 10 points above their biggest rivals Real Madrid after just 12 rounds I would say he is crazy. I would say that because Real Madrid trashed Barcelona in the two-legged Spanish Super Cup match and because Barcelona lost Neymar, one of their main stars in the summer transfer period. But it seems like I was wrong thinking that Barcelona will be affected and will suffer this season. They are leading the standings in the Spanish top-flight league winning 11 of their 12 fixtures so far and scoring 33 goals in the process. They are on a 17-match unbeaten streak and they will try to keep it that way on Sunday when they will face 2nd place Valencia. Yes, after a poor 2016-17 season when they failed to earn a European spot, Valencia have a great start to their 2017-18 campaign sitting 2nd in the standings just 4 points behind leaders Barcelona. We expect a thrilling match between La Liga best teams but in the end Barcelona should have enough to return home with the three points. Best pick for the match: Barcelona to win at 1.95 with Unibet.
Monaco vs. PSG (Ligue 1 – Round 14)
Leaders PSG travel to play 2nd place Monaco on Sunday and they will be looking to continue their unbeaten winning streak. PSG are best French team right now and one of the best European team this season. They should easily win the top-flight league title this term, but their main objective is to triumph in Europe and win the Champions League trophy. The Ligue 1 reigning champs Monaco are not the same team as last season losing their most important players in the summer transfer window making a lot of money – Mendy (£52m), Tiemoué Bakayoko (£39.6m) and Bernardo Silva (£43.6m). More than that, PSG managed to sign Monaco’s star Kylian Mbappe on loan for a year without having to pay Monaco a single penny. PSG’s attacking firepower with Neymar, Cavani and Mbappe, amazing midfield with Di Maria, Pastore, Veratti and Draxler should have enough to win this important clash. Best pick for the match: PSG to win with -0.75 AH (Asian Handicap) at 1.77 with Ladbrokes.
Lazio vs. Fiorentina (Serie A – Round 14)
Serie A has been the most profitable league for us this season and we will continue to deliver our best picks for the most important matches. Lazio’s 9-match winning streak came to an end last weekend when they lost their away derby match against their city rivals AS Roma. They will be looking to bounce back and earn the three points when facing 9th place Fiorentina on Sunday. Fiorentina are facing a small crisis losing 2 of their last 3 Serie A fixture and being held to a 1-1 draw by the newly promoted Spal last weekend. Best pick for the match: Lazio to win at 1.7 with Pinnacle.
Dortmund vs. Schalke (Bundesliga – Round 13)
Another round, another defeat for Dortmund 0-2 last weekend away at Stuttgart. They are five games without a win in the Bundesliga losing their last three fixtures. Dortmund have a tough schedule with 2 important tests in 4 days, playing against Tottenham in Champions League and facing Schalke in the German Bundesliga. Dortmund are 3 points behind 2nd place Schalke and they will be keen to win the match and climb in the standings, but this is will not be a walk in the park for them as Schalke are on a 7-match unbeaten streak in all competitions and they will enter this match extremely confident playing their chance and trying to pull off the upset. Best pick for the match: Schalke to win with +1 AH (Asian Handicap) at 1.72 with Pinnacle.
