RB Leipzig v SC Freiburg (Saturday 14:30)
RB Leipzig will be looking to follow up their Champions League triumph over Tottenham by collecting all three points against SC Freiburg inside an empty Red Bull Arena on Saturday afternoon.
The hosts have lit up the Bundesliga this season, however, their title charge has faltered in recent weeks following back-to-back draws against Leverkusen and Wolfsburg respectively.
Consequently, the Red Bull Arena side have slid down to third-place in the German top tier where they find themselves five points behind league leaders Bayern Munich.
However, I fully expect Julian Naglesmann's men to get back to winning ways this weekend when Leipzig lock horns with eighth-placed FC Freiburg.
Indeed, Christian Streich's side picked up a much-needed victory last time out, however, Freiburg have fallen to defeat in four of their last seven league outings.
Leipzig have scored two or more goals in 18 of their last 23 matches and with that in mind, I'm going to back the Red Bulls to overcome a -1.50 handicap at 1.770 with Crown – a bet that will click should the home side win by two or more goals.
Aston Villa v Chelsea (Saturday 17:30)
Aston Villa will continue their battle to beat the drop when they square off with Chelsea at Villa Park on Saturday evening.
Dean Smith's side were on the wrong end of a 4-0 mauling away at Leicester on Monday night and the Claret and Blue are in grave danger of making a swift return to the English Championship.
Although the Villians have suffered a number of heavy defeats to the heavyweights of the division this term, I expect to see a response from Smith's strugglers on Saturday evening.
Indeed, Chelsea consolidated their place in the top-four with an eye-catching 4-0 win over Everton last weekend, however, the injury-ravaged Blues have failed to bag a win on the road since the turn of the year.
Admittedly, I wouldn't back a Villa victory this weekend, however, the home team could have the tools to trouble Frank Lampard's leaky defence and Villa look overpriced at 2.440 with Crown via VOdds to score over 0.50 goals during the first half on Saturday.
Villa have grabbed a consolation strike in 11 of their 17 defeats this season and the aforementioned betting angle landed in Aston Villa's recent encounters with Tottenham and Man City.
Bordeaux v Rennes (Sunday 14:00)
Rampant Rennes remain on route for Champions League qualification after thumping Montpellier 5-0 last Sunday.
Julien Stephan's side currently lie third in Ligue 1 where they appear to be locked in a two-way battle with Lille to determine who will take the final Champions berth in France.
The Breton outfit travel to 12th placed Bordeaux this weekend where they will target a fourth league win on the spin in their quest to win a ticket to Europe's top table next term.
Standing in Rennes way on Sunday will be a Bordeaux side who have only picked up one win from their last seven Ligue 1 outings.
Paolo Sousa's men made a promising start to the season, however, Les Girondins now find themselves in no man's land with neither relegation or European qualification a realistic possibility.
With that in mind, coupled with red-hot Rennes having no room for error, I'm going to back the away side with 0.00 handicap at odds of 1.830 with Crown via VOdds – a bet that will bank profit should Rennes win, while a draw would see your stake refunded.
