<p>Football fans can look forward to a range of exciting Cup games in Germany, England and Spain in the week ahead. Big teams including Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Manchester United are in action and there is plenty of value on offer for punters. </p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Bayern Munich vs. Bayer Leverkusen:</strong></p> Jupp Heynckes’ men are on fire right now and the 72-year-old boss could be in line for another treble before retiring for the second time. Bayern Munich have already wrapped up the Bundesliga title in comfortable fashion, and they have set up a mouth-watering Champions League semifinal clash with Real Madrid. They will warm up for it with this DFB Pokal match against a reasonably strong Bayer Leverkusen side. Leverkusen are third in the table and they have a decent away record, with seven wins, four draws and four defeats from 15 games. But Bayern Munich have already recorded two 3-1 victories over Leverkusen this season and Robert Lewandowski and company should have far too much quality for them when they meet on Tuesday, so the 7/10 that Bet Stars is offering on a Bayern win looks great. <p style="text-align:center"><strong>Schalke vs. Eintracht Frankfurt:</strong></p> Schalke tightened their grip on second place in the Bundesliga with a strong win over fierce rivals Borussia Dortmund at the weekend, and they have now won six of their last seven games. Frankfurt are a decent side, but they lost 4-1 to Bayer Leverkusen at the weekend and that must have knocked their confidence. A home win is priced at 19/20 in this game with Bet Victor and that looks really good. <p style="text-align:center"><strong>Barcelona vs. Sevilla:</strong></p> Barcelona are still licking their wounds following their shock Champions League exit at the hands of Roma, but they rallied to beat Valencia at the weekend. They are sure to win La Liga, and they could make it a double if they beat Sevilla in the Copa del Rey final on Saturday. Vincenzo Montella’s men are in pretty dismal form and they have not won a domestic game since March 3, so Barca should win this one. Sevilla gained a clean sheet away at Bayern Munich in the Champions League, and held Man United to a 0-0 draw in the previous round, so they can be strong at the back at times. It looks like developing into a pretty low-scoring game, which Barcelona really should win. They are 1/2 to do so with Bet365, and you can put that in a double with Bayern Munich. <p style="text-align:center"><strong>Tottenham vs. Manchester United:</strong></p> Tottenham have been playing their home games at Wembley this season and that could give them an advantage in this FA Cup semifinal. It is being played at the national stadium, and they are a lot more familiar with the surroundings than their opponents. Spurs beat Man Utd here 2-0 in January, and that could give them a psychological boost heading into the game. They are 133/100 to win it with Marathon Bet and that looks interesting. But Tottenham do have a habit of bottling it in big games, while Man Utd manager Jose Mourinho is a masterful tactician, capable of beating any team in knockout competition. The majority of the action is going on Man Utd, and they are 27/11 with Unibet. If you want to swerve the outrights, both teams to score looks great at 4/5 with 10Bet and Betfair. <p style="text-align:center"><strong>Chelsea vs. Southampton:</strong></p> These teams met in the Premiership on Saturday and Chelsea overcame a two-goal deficit to win 3-2. That late comeback was demoralizing for the Saints, who now look highly likely to be relegated, and it should give Chelsea great confidence heading into this game. They are 1/2 with Sportingbet, and they would make a good treble with Barcelona and Bayern Munich. For more value in this game, Chelsea and over 2.5 goals looks interesting at 5/4 with Ladbrokes and Coral.<p></p>
