Real Madrid vs Elche: Real to win & Over 1.5 goals @1.34

Zinedine Zidane’s side scored late on to draw at leaders Atletico to keep their faint hopes of retaining their title alive and ensure they don’t fall 10 points off the top.

The draw was a second in succession in La Liga for injury-ravaged Madrid and Zidane will be desperate to get back to winning ways against 17th-placed Elche who have lost their last five away from home but beat Sevilla 2-1 last time out.

With Atalanta up in the Champions League in midweek, Zidane might be looking to rest players but would be mindful of falling too far behind their city rivals so should put out a strong enough side – injury permitting – to do the job at the Alfredo di Stefano.

The last four games in this fixture have seen at least two goals and Real are unbeaten against Elche in five. Back them to make it six without a loss.

Borussia Dortmund vs Hertha Berlin: Dortmund to win & Over 1.5 goals @1.62

Dortmund conceded late against Sevilla in the Champions League to make it two games without a win after winning the previous four.

Edin Terzic’s side are sixth in the Bundesliga, four points off the UCL places and against 15th-placed Hertha with just one win in their last ten, you’d expect Dortmund to do the business.

The Yellow Submarines are inconsistent but pretty much guarantee goals and Hertha never keep clean sheets. There have been at least three goals in four of the last five in this fixture so a punt on Over 2.5 goals at 1.55 on BetBiga might be prudent but we’ll go for Dortmund to win and over 1.5 goals.

Wolfsburg vs Schalke 04: Wolfsburg to win @1.36

Wolfsburg are on a 2-game losing streak – a hardly inspiring run of form for a team we’re backing to win – but bottom side Schalke are the perfect side for Wolfsburg to get back to winning ways.

Schalke are without a win in 10 and lost 1-0 to Wolfsburg just last month in the DFB Pokal to make it three straight losses against Die Wölfe. That run should extend to four at the Volkswagen Arena on Saturday.

Werder Bremen vs Bayern Munich: Werder to score @1.60

Bundesliga leaders Bayern can’t keep clean sheets to save their lives and have let in at least one goal in their five games. The good thing is that they have one Robert Lewandowski who appears to know a bit about scoring goals, so the Bavarians more often than not, outscore their opponents.

Both sides have identical unbeaten streaks – 3 apiece – and there have been a total of 24 goals in the six games combined with games involving Bayern responsible for 17 of the goals.

Both sides have found the net in five of the last seven in this fixture and both teams to score is at 1.70 on BetBiga if you’re looking for more value, additionally, you can back the over 2.5 goals option at 1.35 odds.

Zenit St Petersburg vs Akhmat Grozny: Zenit to win @1.39

Leaders Zenit have had a torrid time since the Russian Premier League resumed from their winter break and are without a win in three league and cup games.

Against 11th-placed Akhmat who have lost both games in the league since the restart and who have failed to get the better of Zenit in eight games, the leaders should bag all three points at home.

RB Salzburg vs Admira: 1st Half Over 1.5 goals @1.70

It’s first vs last in the Austrian Bundesliga and the outcome is fairly guaranteed so we’re only concerned with the period the goals will be scored. 

There have been at least two goals in the first half in two of the last four between these two and three of the last four games involving Salzburg have seen at least two goals in the opening period. We expect more of the same on Sunday.

Basel vs Luzern: Over 2.5 goals @1.70

Basel are on a strange run that has seen them fail to win in seven games in all competitions losing four in that run. They’ve won the last two against Luzern but their rotten form means they can’t be trusted to win even though they’re at home.

One thing that hasn’t quite changed for Basel is the guarantee of goals in their games and five of their last seven have brought at least 3 goals. It gets even better when you factor in Luzern’s recent games with at least 3 goals in seven of their last eight games.

This fixture also tends to produce goals aplenty and there’ve been at least 3 goals in six of the last seven. See, there shall be goals. Backing both sides to score at 1.53 isn’t too shabby either with that option happening in four of the last five between these two.

Leicester vs Sheffield United: Leicester to win @1.53

Chris Wilder was scathing of some of his players after the home loss to Southampton last time out and would be expecting a reaction at the KingsPower against the Foxes.

But will he get it though with some of his players seemingly resigned to their fate?

Leicester, meanwhile, won at Brighton last time out to end a run of three games without a win and should be confident of making it two wins on the trot on Sunday against the Blades who’ve they beat six times on the bounce and have not lost to in nine.

Brendan Rodgers side messed up UCL qualification last season and will be desperate to not make the same mistake twice especially as they welcome leaders Manchester City next and United, who’re only a point above the Foxes in second place are likely to drop points against West Ham this weekend. 

Reims vs Lyon: Lyon to win either half @1.28

No losses in four is impressive for a team in 12th but Reims have won only in that run.

Lyon have been superb since the turn of the year with eight wins in ten and backing them to beat Reims at 1.49 odds is an enticing prospect but games between these two are often tight so we’ll go with Lyon to win a half at least. 

Benfica vs Boavista: Benfica to win @1.34

The race for UCL qualification in the Primeira Liga promises to be interesting with just four points separating 2nd from 4th with 12 left to play.

Benfica are 4th, 3 points off Porto who occupy the final UCL qualifying spot and welcome a Boavista side with just one loss in their last four games to the Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica.

Boavista won the most recent meeting between these sides to end a run of three loses against Benfica but Jorge Jesus’ side are in fantastic form having won their last three without conceding and should pick all three points at home.
