Cristiano Ronaldo to score two or more goals against Racing – 8/11

Cristiano Ronaldo has netted a staggering 27 goals in 22 league appearances for Real Madrid this season, taking his tally to 121 goals in all competitions since moving from Manchester United in 2009. The 27-year-old scored four goals in 55 minutes in this fixture last season, and with seven goals in his last five games, El Tipstro is confident his opening effort of Ronaldo to score two or more goals on Saturday night at 9/4 will come off.

Over 3.5 goals in Real Madrid v Racing – 4/6

There have been an impressive 25 goals in the last five La Liga games at the Bernabéu. José Mourinho may be remembered at Chelsea and Inter for being a conservative coach, but his Real Madrid side have been prolific in front of goal this season, scoring 45 times at home. So, over 3.5 goals in the La Liga leaders’ clash with Racing is clearly a value bet at 4/6.

Over 2.5 goals in Barcelona v Valencia – 8/15

Barcelona have struggled defensively in recent weeks, suffering a 3-2 defeat by Osasuna last Saturday. It was the first time Pep Guardiola’s side had conceded three goals in a game for over 70 matches. The La Liga meeting between these two sides at the Mestalla earlier this season was an entertaining 2-2 draw, and El Tipstro is backing over 2.5 goals at Camp Nou on Sunday night at 8/15.

Robinho to score against Cesena – 6/5

Robinho earned plenty of plaudits following a sparkling performance in AC Milan’s 4-0 victory over Arsenal in the Champions League on Wednesday. The Brazilian striker capped an impressive display with two goals either side of the break to take his tally to six goals for the season. So, in one of the games being streamed live on bet365 this weekend, Robinho to score against Cesena is great value at 6/5.

The long shot: Roberto Soldado to score against Barcelona – 13/5

The Spanish striker has been struggling with the ‘flu in recent weeks but is expected to start against Barcelona. Roberto Soldado has been one of Valencia’s most consistent performers this season, with 17 goals in all competitions. He netted a late equaliser against Chelsea in the Champions League and bagged a brace in a 3-2 defeat by Real Madrid earlier this season. So, El Tipstro’s audacious effort for this edition is for Soldado to score against Barcelona at any time at 13/5.
