German Bundesliga

RB Leipzig vs. Borussia Dortmund

Saturday, January 9th, 2021 – 5:30 PM GMT at Red Bull Arena

Title Chase Continues

Borussia Dortmund has underperformed this season, but you cannot wholly discredit Die Schwarzgelben. They are sat in fourth place, and although their results have drifted at times, the skill level remains.

RB Leipzig has a home record that few can contend with, sat in 2nd place with just one loss this term – a home victory this weekend would seem like the viable option.

Leipzig has overrun the position of Munich's competition that Borussia has initially been tipped with. Six wins, one draw, and a minor three goals conceded is an excellent record for Leipzig in their previous seven fixtures.

Form, Mentality, Bundesliga Odds & Trends

  • Leipzig has avoided defeat in 49 of their previous 56 games in all competitions.
  • Leipzig has maintained a clean sheet in their previous five fixtures.
  • Under 2.5 has been scored in 4 of Leipzig's previous five matches.
  • Dortmund has won 13 of their previous 17 away games.

Final Thoughts| Bundesliga Betting Tips

The home record for Leipzig will contend with the away form of Dortmund, and this should be the highlight game of the weekend.

I anticipate a low-scoring, tight-knit affair, but with two top teams colliding we can find some great value on the home squad.

The available odds for either team to win are considerably higher than usual but take some insurance with the 'draw no bet' market on the home squad.

Score Prediction: Leipzig 2 – Dortmund 1

Best Bet: Leipzig ‘draw no bet’ at 1.79 [-127] with Unibet

Spanish La Liga

Osasuna vs. Real Madrid

Saturday, January 9th, 2021 - 8:00 PM GMT at Estadio El Sadar

Slow Comeback

The Spanish giants, who were pitted for another dominant season, will have already learned their lesson early on, allowing points to slip versus lower-level teams cannot be afforded. Now faced with a relegation struggler, Zidane will be out to prove a point and take the points.

Final Thoughts| La Liga Betting Tips.

The home side should be confident with their recent performances, but Los Blancos have only lost one away game this term.

The odds for a Madrid win are steep, but sprinkle the chances of Osasuna finding the back of the net and watch the value pour down.

Score Prediction: Osasuna 1 – Real Madrid 3

Best Bet: Real Madrid win & both teams to score at 3.00 [+200] with Bet365 (visit our Bet365 Review)

Italian Serie A

AC Milan vs. Torino

Saturday, January 9th, 2021 – 7:45 PM GMT at San Siro

Goals on the Card

The league leaders suffered their first loss of the season to the defending champions Juventus last week, and we expect a bounce back into the win column.

A trip to the San Siro, and a trip with expected results are two different things. Torino is one place above the relegation zone, and they have severely struggled for wins all season.

Form, Mentality, Serie A Odds & Trends

  • AC Milan has won by two or more goals in 14 of their previous 28 domestic fixtures.
  • Both teams have scored in 6 of Milan's previous seven games.
  • AC Milan has scored at least one goal in their previous 36 Serie A games.
  • Torino has seen both teams score in 12 of their previous 15 matches.
  • Torino has two wins in their last 20 league matches.

Final Thoughts| Serie A Betting Tips

With a mere two wins from their previous eighteen away days, Torino has the chips stacked against them. Recent losses to Juventus, Inter Milan, Udinese & Roma, should give AC Milan more than enough confidence to claim another three points at the top of the table.

Score Prediction: AC Milan 2 – Torino 1

Best Bet: AC Milan win & over 1.5 goals at 1.79 [-127] with Betway (visit our Betway Review)
