Our European betting expert is backing Barcelona to be winning against Levante at half-time and full-time in the late kick-off in Spain, while tipping over 2.5 goals when Valencia visit Espanyol on Sunday.
Meanwhile in Serie A, the Tipster’s European cousin expects Juventus to falter in their bid to win the league title by only managing to draw at Cesena in a low scoring game.
Ronaldo continues to excel in La Liga and the former Manchester United midfielder netted his seventh hat-trick of the season in the Madrid derby in midweek. The 27-year-old has 40 league goals and eight in his last four outings. So 8/13 for Ronaldo to score two goals or more on Saturday night is definitely worth a punt.
Barcelona have been winning at half-time and full-time in their last 10 La Liga games. Pep Guardiola’s side were outsiders to retain the title after a difficult middle part of the season but Barcelona have won every game since their defeat by Osasuna in early February. El Tipstro reckons that Barça to be winning at half-time and full-time is a solid bet at 4/7.
There have been over 2.5 goals in Espanyol’s last five home games in La Liga, and in their last three encounters with Valencia in all competitions. Sunday’s visitors to Estadi Cornellà-El Prat have scored at least two goals in their last three games. Over 2.5 goals is an excellent bet in this one at 19/20.
Juventus are yet to suffer a loss in Serie A but have failed to play the thrilling football which made Arsenal’s 49-game unbeaten run so exciting. There have been under 2.5 goals in nine of the Turin outfit’s last 10 games. So, El Tipstro is backing less than three goals when Juventus take on Cesena at tempting odds of 11/10.
Cesena may be bottom of Serie A but they have earned a point from each of their last four games. Meanwhile, second-placed Juventus have already drawn 14 games in the league this season, nine of which came on their travels. So, El Tipstro’s audacious long-range effort for this week is for Cesena to hold title-chasing Juventus to a draw on Sunday at 4/1.
