Juventus and Inter Milan did not follow the script at all yesterday. A 0-0 result after 90 minutes meant none of our tips from that big game came through. However, Juventus are now through to the Coppa Italia finals and will have their eye on yet another piece of silverware this season.
Today is another day and straight to business, we’ll be bringing you the most likely tips to come through from games across Europe’s top five leagues.
We start with the FA Cup where Manchester City travel to take on Swansea. Pep Guardiola’s side are in devastating form at the moment, winning their last 14 games in succession. Swansea are also currently on a 10-game unbeaten run but they will be playing the best of the best in England today. City are fresh from thrashing Liverpool 4-1 and we can expect another similar result today. Bet365 have 1.20 odds, Bet9ja have 1.22 and 1xbet have 1.25.
Still in the FA Cup, Leicester City welcome Brighton to the King Power Stadium. Leicester City were frustrated by a 0-0 draw over the weekend but are now unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 games (W7, D4, L1) as they enter this all-Premier League (PL) clash. With four of their last five victories coming at both HT/FT and each of those finishing with a 2+ goal margin, Brighton will be wary! We’re tipping the foxes to get the win today. Bet365 have 1.83 odds, Bet9ja have 1.86 and 1xbet have 1.92.
PSG to win Caen Over to France, PSG take on Caen in the French Cup. We don’t need to explain why this would be an easy win for the reigning French champions. They are usually favorites against any opposition in the country and a Ligue 2 side should pose no real danger to Pochettino’s men tonight. Bet365 and 1xbet have 1.12 odds while Bet9ja have 1.14.
Lille are among one of the most in-form sides in France at the moment, winning their last six games in succession. It’s no surprise they are currently top of Ligue 1. They take on a Dijon side they beat less than two weeks ago and we’re expecting another easy win for Les Dogues. Bet365 have 1.66 odds, Bet9ja have 1.73 and 1xbet have 1.75.
Over 2.5 Goals
An exciting clash is on the cards when Sevilla welcome Barcelona to Seville for the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-finals. Both teams have quality attackers and it could yet turn out to be an attacking match overall. We’re tipping this game to see at least three goals. Bet9ja have 1.76 odds, Bet365 have 1.80 and 1xbethave 1.85.
As earlier said above, 11 out of Manchester City’s last 14 games have come with a 2+ goal margin. They have also scored at least two goals in four out of their last five games, including a 5-0 thrashing of West Brom and the most recent 4-1humiliation of Liverpool. We can expect another dominant result from City tonight. Bet9ja have 1.50 odds, Bet365 have 1.53 and 1xbet have 1.54.
Still in the FA Cup, Everton welcome Tottenham to Goodison Park and it’s a game with a good potential for goals. Goals are usually guaranteed in Spurs’ FA Cup matches, and both teams have scored in six of their previous seven. Meanwhile on the road, the North Londoners have kept just three clean sheets across their 11 previous away competition fixtures. Everton also have quality stars in their lineup and both teams will fancy their chances of winning. We expect a good goal-scoring affair. Bet365 and 1xbet have 1.88 odds while Bet9ja have 2.10.
Another in-form side in Monaco take on Ligue 2 side Grenoble in the French Cup. The reason we expect over 2.5 goals in this game is quite simple. Monaco have won their last six games in succession and all of those games have seen over 2.5 goals. Now against Ligue 2 opponents, you can fancy the same happening tonight. Bet9ja have 1.60 odds, 1xbet have 1.62 and Bet365 have 1.65.
The Argentine maestro continues to show that age is just a number. Last time out, he came from the bench to inspire his side to a victory but he’s expected to star this one. The Copa del Rey might be Messi’s last shot at a trophy for Barcelona and he’ll be fired up to take that chance for sure. Bet365 have 1.83 odds while Bet9ja have theirs at 2.10.
The Tottenham star marked his return from injury with a goal against West Brom on Sunday. He is always a sure shout to score in every game he plays and he’ll fancy his chances against an Everton side that have conceded a fair amount of goals this term. There could be value with Kane as Bet365 have 2.00 odds and Bet9ja have theirs at 2.75.
He was on the bench for PSG’s last win against Marseille but is expected to start this one. Given the opponents today (with no disrespect), the Brazilian will be thinking about the prospect of grabbing a goal or two for himself tonight.
The Leicester talisman is expected to make his return from injury in the clash against Brighton, as confirmed by Brendan Rodgers. As always, he is the go to man for goals in the Foxes lineup and you can count on him to score today. Bet365 have 1.90 odds while Bet9ja have it better at 2.00.
Football Lover. All-round junkie of the beautiful game. Could be found watching football most of the time. If not he’s writing about them or making some punditry you don’t agree with. A certain bias for Arsenal and Santos FC.
