Man City V Chelsea
First up is Man City V Chelsea. Pep Guardiola’s men were the pre season favourites, but Chelsea are now pushing City for favouritism after a run of 7 matches in a row, and more crucially, the return to form of Eden Hazard and Diego Costa.
City will be looking to take advantage of home surroundings in this one, and it will – by far – be the biggest test of Chelsea’s title credentials so far this season, who are at the moment separated by just one point in the league.
With a match that looks close to call on paper, goals might be the bet worth following in this one. You can currently get 7/2 on Aguero to socre first, and the same price on the Argentine to score last. He is 20/21 to score anytime.
His Chelsea counterpart, Diego Costa, will also no doubt be will be backed well in the goal scoring markets. The Chelsea man is 5/1 for first goal scorer, 5/1 for last goal scorer, and 7/5 to find the net at any time.
Barcelona V Real Madrid – El Clasico
The main event of the weekend must be in Spain though, as Barcelona and Real Madrid clash in El Clasico.
This already looks like a must win match for Barca, who after a recent run of poor results, find themselves 6 points behind Los Blancos.
Barcelona are favourites in the 90 minutes betting at 5/6, with the draw at 3/1, and a Madrid win at 3/1. Don’t forget this match is being streamed live to bet365 customers, who have an active or funded account – one of many bet365 offers for existing customers.
In the goal scoreing markets, Cristiano Ronaldo will be looking to stay top of the goal scoring charts, and he might need to with his compatriot, the in form Gareth Bale, out injured for up to 3 months.
Ronaldo currently leads the Spanish goal scoring charts way with 10 goals, that’s 1 ahead of Messi, and 2 ahead of Suarez. Messi remains the top scorer in this fixture with an amazing 21 goals.
Madrid won the latest El Clasico 2-1 at here last season, and on current form, history may well repeat itself! Real have won 72 of the teams 172 La Liga contests, with Barca on 68 wins, with 32 draws along the way.
