Barcelona vs. Atletico Madrid (La Liga – Round 27)
Leaders Barcelona are 6 games away off equaling La Liga’s record of 38-game unbeaten streak, but they set a club record last weekend going 32 games unbeaten in the Spanish top-flight league. They are seven points clear at the top of the table with 13 rounds to go until the end of the season. Before this huge clash, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid will play mid-week matches against Las Palmas and Leganes, respectively. Having the best defense in La Liga with just 11 goals conceded in 25 rounds, Atletico Madrid are the only team to fight Barcelona for the title. They enter this match in great form and will try to pull-off the upset and become the 1st team to beat Barcelona this season.
Barcelona’s 2 consecutive draws against Getafe and Espanyol earlier in the season have offered some hope of drama as Atletico closed the gap to 7 points. Atletico have a rock-solid defense, but they look very strong also in the attack with Antoine Griezmann and Diego Costa being on fire and scoring goals for fun. Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are leading the top scorers’ chart with 42 goals scored between them this term in La Liga. Eight of their previous nine mutual encounters saw both teams scoring, and the bookies are offering us a great price for this outcome.
Best pick for the match: Both teams to score at 1.9 with Pinnacle.
Man City vs. Chelsea (Premier League – Round 29)
The Citizens are 13 points clear at the top of the table with a game in hand. They are the better side in every position, they always have a winning attitude and they are enjoying an amazing season. It’s just a matter of time until they will lift the Premier League trophy, but their biggest dream is to win the most important European competition, Champions League. Before facing Chelsea on Sunday, they will face Arsenal on Thursday after winning against them 3-0 in the Carabao Cup final. The battle for a top-4 finish is getting more and more intense and for Chelsea the things are complicated. They enter this match on the back of 3 defeats in their last 4 Premier League fixtures and in case of another loss against Manchester City their chance of finishing in top 5 will reduce considerably.
Best pick for the match: Manchester City to win and over 2.5 goals in the game at 2.3 with Ladbrokes.
