BAYERN MUNICH drew a blank in the Champions League the other night and that’s bad news for today’s opponents Paderborn.
Bayern are extra motivated to rediscover their scoring touch ahead of the second leg with Shakhtar Donetsk and can following up last week’s 8-0 drubbing of Hamburg with another Bundlesliga cruise.
Paderborn have slipped down the table in recent weeks as their promising start to the season fizzles out and Bayern can compound their problems today by winning at half-time and full-time, a 4-7 shot at BetVictor.
Staying in Germany, Eintracht Frankfurt games are usually good for goals. Eintracht kept a rare clean sheet last week at home to Schalke but before that it was seven league games in a row with both teams scoring.
Today they’re at a Mainz side who have former Under-23 boss Martin Schmidt in charge following the midweek sacking of Kasper Hjulmand and both to score pays 1-2 at Betfair. Eintracht scored 2+ in four of those seven matches and I like them to do so again today at 23-20 with Coral.
Add Portuguese champs Benfica to triumph at Moreirense. Benfica have responded from their shock defeat at Pacos Ferreira with three 3-0 wins and a draw away to Sporting Libson and can go seven points clear at the top today with victory at 2-5 with StanJames and BetVictor.
Atletico Madrid suffered defeat at Celta Vigo last time out in La Liga but have key man Arda Turan back for today’s home clash with Almeria. Take Atletico to score 2+ at 1-3 with Betfair.
