THERE'S no love lost between Dortmund and Schalke and Saturday sees them collide in one of the biggest games of the Bundesliga season – the Ruhr derby.

Dortmund have dragged themselves off the bottom of the table with three successive league wins, rattling in 10 goals in the process.

They boast fierce firepower in the likes of Marco Reus and Patrick Aubameyang who will fancy their chances with Schalke having to field third-choice keeper Timon Wellenreuther, 19.

However, the Dortmund defence is still far from rock solid and top-four hopefuls Schalke, who welcome back star striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar, can bag a goal. Five of these sides' past six meetings have seen both teams score and I'm backing both to score again at 20-23 with BetVictor.

In the Dutch Eredivisie, fourth-placed AZ Alkmaar are on a good run with four wins from five and welcome mid-table Willem II. AZ have scored 2+ in four of their last five and can continue that trend. Take AZ to score 2+ at 8-11 with Coral.

Staying in Holland, Vitesse are not to be messed with on the back of a five-game winning streak. Their visitors are Zwolle, two places above them but suffering a dip with three straight defeats.

There's goals to be had in this one and, just like their last two meetings, over 2.5 goals and both to score is the shout at evens with William Hill.

The over 2.5/btts market is a popular one that William Hill are one of the few bookies to provide. Our special offer is open for one final day up until midnight on Saturday. Simply open a William Hill account via the links on this site, then email your William Hill username and Paypal details to and we'll pop £10 cash into your Paypal account.

Happy punting and good luck with your weekend bets.

      Pikey, you’ll put none of the regulars to shame as a lot of them are very good. Trying to win a lot of money in a short of time is a sure way to lose a lot of money in a short time.

    Pikey, you talk a good talk mate let’s see how your tips pan out, if you make people money then I don’t think they’ll care too much about you ” bigging yourself up ” but my advice,even if you are as good as you say you are, don’t showboat too much it might push some people on here the wrong way, last thing we need on here is another Harpeet situation, good luck son and no offence meant Harpeet
