Here’s my take on the minefield:
Celta Vigo vs Mallorca, La Liga, 3.00pm ko.
As far as BTTS games go, this one falls into the category of prime BTTS fodder. Two sides languishing at the wrong end of the table and without a clean sheet in 12 games between them (5 for Celta Vigo, 7 for Mallorca).
The home side’s last 2 games have seen 9 goals scored (3 for, 6 against) whilst away team Mallorca gave Barca a scare last time out, notching 2 goals in quick succession before Messi made it 4-2 late on. This match should get us off to a flying start early doors.
Nice vs Toulouse, Ligue 1, 4.00pm ko.
There’s two nigh on certainty’s that Ligue 1 throws up each week this season: 1. Joey Barton wont play but will revel in his team-mates glory and 2. Nice will score and concede.
The home side are gunning for a 13th straight BTTS match, a remarkable run which stretches back to August! Toulouse, who sit 8th in the table, will be looking to bounce back from 3 straight defeats against 15th placed Nice.
Sevilla vs Real Betis, La Liga, 8.30pm ko.
We return to Spain for the last leg of the treble, with high fliers Betis travelling to Sevilla. The away side have suprised many in La Liga thus far, and currently occupy 4th place just behind Real Madrid, but Sevilla will be keen to close the gap with a home win here which will bring them to within a point of their opponents.
The last 3 times these two sides have met they’ve both got on the scoresheet, so here’s hoping for fantastic number four.
