The Tipster’s European cousin is predicting Barça to win by at least two goals, while backing over 2.5 goals when Real Sociedad take on Valencia on Saturday night.
The 24-year-old has a staggering 72 goals in all competitions this season, including 50 strikes in La Liga. The Argentina international will be keen to leave his mark in Guardiola’s final game in charge, so Messi to score two goals or more is El Tipstro’s opening bet at 8/5.
The Guardiola era comes to an end on Saturday night and Barcelona will be desperate to close it in style. Betis are clear of the relegation zone, while Barça will be looking to end the season on a high ahead of the Copa Del Rey final. Barcelona have won their last seven away games, so El Tipstro reckons Guardiola’s side to win by at least two goals is a good bet at 5/6.
Both sides have scored in seven out of Sociedad’s last ten games. The Basque side will be looking to end a successful season in their return to the top flight by winning their last home game, while Valencia are assured of Champions League qualification. Both sides to score looks like a value bet at 1/2.
Four out of Sociedad’s last six home games have finished with over 2.5 goals. Meanwhile, Valencia, who have won their last three away games, will be desperate to give their manager Unai Emery a fitting send off – he leaves at the end of the season. So El Tipstro reckons over 2.5 goals is a solid bet in this one at 3/5.
Barcelona have an excellent goal record against Saturday night’s opposition: the Catalans have scored nine times against Sociedad in La Liga and the Copa del Rey this season. So, with that in mind, El Tipstro’s audacious long for this edition is Barcelona to score over 4.5 goals against the Basque outfit at tempting odds of 5/1.
