Barcelona have shown tremendous character to close the gap on La Liga leaders Real Madrid to six points – and El Tipstro is backing Cesc Fàbregas to net for the defending champions against Athletic Bilbao on Saturday.

The Tipster’s European cousin is predicting plenty of goals when the Basque side make the trip to Camp Nou, and he also reckons Madrid’s stuttering title bid will see José Mourinho’s side drop more points against Osasuna.

In Italy, Internazionale have changed managers and despite Andrea Stramaccioni taking control at the San Siro, our man-in-the-know expects under 2.5 goals when Genoa make the trip to Milan.

Fàbregas to score for Barcelona against Athletic Bilbao – 5/6

The former Arsenal man has nine league goals in 23 appearances this season, including a goal against Bilbao at San Mamés back in November. The 24-year-old is likely to start after being left out against AC Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday night and 5/6 is good value for him to score at any time on Saturday night.

Over 3.5 goals in Barcelona v Athletic Bilbao – 4/5

Barcelona’s last five games at Camp Nou have produced 26 goals and Bilbao will be in confident mood after netting four against Schalke in Germany on Thursday night. Bilbao’s last three away games in the league have produced 10 goals. This fixture ended in a 2-2 draw at San Mamés earlier this season and El Tipstro expects plenty of entertainment again on Saturday night, with over 3.5 goals a solid bet at 4/5.

Real Madrid to draw with Osasuna – 7/2

Madrid face sixth-placed Osasuna on Saturday evening, and Mourinho’s side will have a fight on their hands. Osasuna have only lost twice at home this season, and have drawn five and won eight. They also caused a shock by securing a 3-2 victory over Barcelona back in February. Madrid have drawn two of their last three games, and this won’t be an easy game for them. So El Tipstro is predicting a draw in this one at a very tempting 7/2.

Under 2.5 goals in Internazionale v Genoa – 43/40

Inter have struggled in front to find the net this season and five of their seven games have finished with under 2.5 goals. Meanwhile, Genoa have stuttered away from home recently and have only scored in one of their last four away matches in Serie A. Earlier in the season, Inter won a tight match 1-0 in Genoa, and El Tipstro believes under 2.5 goals at 43/40 looks a good bet when the two sides meet on Sunday.

The long shot: Falcao to score and Atlético to beat Getafe – 3/1

Atlético Madrid’s Radamel Falcao has been in prolific form this season, scoring 19 league goals in 25 appearances. The Colombian striker is on a hot streak, with seven strikes in his last six games, including a brace against Bilbao. So, El Tipstro’s audacious long-range effort for this week is for Falcao to score and Atlético to beat Getafe at 3/1.
