Elsewhere, our European betting expert is predicting an entertaining game between Real Madrid and Malaga at the Bernabéu with both sides set to score, and Sevilla to hold Barcelona to a point on Sunday.
Ibrahimović has been in excellent form with four goals in his last two league games. The Swedish striker tops Italy’s goalscoring charts with 19 goals in 21 appearances this season. He will be on penalty duty should the opportunity arise on Saturday, so El Tipstro considers Ibrahimovic to score at 10/11 to be excellent value.
Milan’s away form has helped them move top of Serie A, winning six of their last seven games, and scoring 16 goals in the process. The Rossoneri travel to Parma on Saturday, and Roberto Donadoni’s side are without a win in their last six games. El Tipstro is expecting a one-sided encounter, and is backing Milan to win at tempting odds of 4/6.
Real Madrid have played 13 league games at the Bernabéu this season, and the visiting side have scored in all but three of these fixtures. Meanwhile, Malaga have netted in three of their last four away games. So Real and Malaga both to score on Saturday looks a good bet at 8/11.
Barcelona have struggled against Sevilla drawing their last two league meetings against Los Rojiblancos. Barcelona, despite their recent resurgence, have struggled on their travels this season, drawing five times and losing twice in 13 games. El Tipstro believes the two sides to draw on Sunday, in a game streamed live on bet365.com, is excellent value at 15/4.
Athletic Bilbao’s memorable 5-3 aggregate victory over Manchester United on Thursday booked their place in the Europa League last eight. The Basque side welcome Valencia to San Mamés for their fourth game in 11 days. The Mestalla outfit have come from behind to seal 2-1 victories in their last two trips to Bilbao, and El Tipstro’s speculative long-range effort for this week is for Valencia to come from behind again on Sunday at 9/1.
