REAL MADRID will draft in the fringe men for today’s trip to Gijon but they’re still likely to be a cut above the struggling hosts.
With the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich looming in midweek, Real will rest key stars and the support cast who’ll fill their boots aren’t too shabby.
The likes of Alvaro Morata, Isco and James Rodriguez will be handed starting slots and can get the job done against third-bottom Gijon who have just two wins in their last 17.
La Liga leaders Real need the victory to keep their advantage over Barca in the title race and I’m on Zinedine Zidane’s men to win and over 1.5 match goals at 8-13 with BetStars.
In Germany, Leipzig are over their form slump with three straight wins and can bag the points at home to Freiburg. Add in over 1.5 match goals and it pays 7-10 at BetStars.
Completing the treble is Torino – who’ve netted at least twice in five of their last six – to score 2+ at 4-7 with Boylesports at home to lowly Crotone.
For a goals line I’m taking a stab at three value shots. Palermo have the worst goal difference in Serie A but usually bag one themselves, with six of their last eight games seeing both teams score.
Visitors Bologna have gone two games without netting but can end that run in Sicily and btts pays 4-5 at BetStars.
In Germany, Augsburg are right in relegation trouble and their last five at home have had goals at both ends. For Cologne it’s six of seven away from home so btts has a fair chance at odds against 21-20 with BetStars.
Finally, in France a close affair looks on the cards when Rennes face Lille. Four of Rennes’ last five at home have landed btts and Lille have netted in six away games on the bounce, so 188Bet‘s 13-11 for btts looks a tad big.
