It’s that time of the week again when we run through a selection of the 10 most exciting matches to bet on this weekend and offer our best bets and value picks.
Chelsea v Nottingham Forest (Saturday)
After finally winning a game, with a 3-1 away victory over Bournemouth, Chelsea will be looking to build on that result with another positive performance against Nottingham Forest, a side winless in their last 10 away matches with nine defeats.
Arsenal v Brighton (Sunday)
Arsenal look to keep their Premier League title hopes alive when they host Brighton at the Emirates on Sunday. Having won back-to-back games against Chelsea and Newcastle, the Gunners will be confident of claiming maximum points, especially after witnessing Brighton lose 5-1 at home to relegation-threatened Everton.
Real Madrid v Getafe (Saturday)
Real Madrid return to league action on Saturday evening when they play host to Getafe at the Santiago Bernabeu. Carlo Ancelotti’s men have won their last 13 home meetings against their in-city rivals who languish in the bottom three.
Espanyol v Barcelona (Sunday)
Xavi’s Barcelona will be crowned LaLiga champions for the 17th time with a win over Espanyol on Sunday, while a defeat for their city rivals will be a severe blow to their hopes of avoiding relegation.
Bayern Munich v Schalke (Saturday)
Bayern Munich will hope to take another step towards the Bundesliga title when they host Schalke on Saturday. Thomas Tuchel’s men, who lie only a point above second-placed Borussia Dortmund, are unbeaten at the Allianz Arena this season and have won the last 11 meetings against Schalke.
Dortmund v Monchengladbach (Saturday)
Dortmund look to keep their Bundesliga title hopes alive when they host Monchengladbach on Saturday. BVB have won the last seven home meetings against Gladbach and can be backed to get the win.
Spezia v AC Milan (Saturday)
AC Milan travel to Spezia on Saturday eager to boost their top-four hopes while the Liguria side will aim to come out of the relegation zone with just four games left for them. Stefano Pioli’s side won the reverse tie 2-1 back in November and will be confident of picking up maximum points.
Juventus v Cremonese (Sunday)
Juventus will be looking to establish and solidify their spot in the UEFA Champions League when they host Cremonese on Sunday. The Old Lady have won five of their last six games at the Allianz Stadium and are looking for a league double over the relegation-threatened side.
Paris Saint-Germain v Ajaccio (Saturday)
Paris Saint-Germain sit atop the Ligue 1 standings, holding a six-point cushion above the rest of the league. Should they beat already-relegated Ajaccio on Saturday, it will be their third straight league title and ninth in the past 11 years.
Marseille v Angers (Sunday)
Marseille will be looking to get back to winning ways when they host bottom-side Angers on Sunday. The hosts slumped to a 2-1 defeat away at Lens last time out, which saw their three-game winning streak come to an end.
