THE Dutch Eredivisie is back from its winter break and on Saturday night leaders PSV can pick up where they left off.

Philip Cocu's men have won nine of their last 10 in the top flight – including four victories on the bounce before the shutdown – and tonight they travel to a Vitesse side with a patchy record this season.

The hosts have won just once in their last eight league matches and influential midfielder Bertran Traore, on loan from Chelsea, is away on Africa Cup of Nations duty. It must be noted they've been strong enough at home, avoiding defeat so far in the league with three wins and six draws.

But PSV have the attacking talent in Memphis Depay and Luk do Jong – who've scored 20 goals between them – and Luciano Narsingh to wreck that unbeaten record. PSV's last four Eredivisie visits to Vitesse have seen two draws and two away wins and I'm backing the visitors to nick victory at 6-5 with Skybet.

In Italy, Inter are on the rise with Roberto Mancini making his mark in his second spell as manager. They're on a four-match unbeaten run in Serie A and that includes a draw away to leaders Juventus.

Today Inter travel to an Empoli side they've had the better of in recent years, winning the last six meetings between the sides and conceding only one goal. Empoli's decent start has fizzled out and they're winless in six league matches, drawing five and failing to score in four.

Inter can be notoriously flaky and have burst many a coupon when expected to win but are bolstered by new signings Lukas Podolski and Xherdan Shaqiri and wlecome back captain Andrea Rnocchia and midfield star Mateo Kovacic from suspension. The Nerazzurri can extend their dominance over the Tuscan troops and are 4-6 with Betfair to win either half.

In Spain, Valencia have scored at least two goals in seven of their nine home La Liga matches and can repeat the feat at home to struggling Almeria who have just two wins in 12. Valencia are 2-5 with Skybet to score over 1.5 goals.

To complete the treble it was a toss-up between Villarreal and Lyon and I've decided to go for the French table-toppers. Lyon are flying in Ligue 1 with five wins on the bounce and just one defeat in 16 league games. They visit second-bottom Lens who have only two wins in eight and have lost their last three home league meetings with Lyon.

Red-hot striker Alexander Lacezette can fire Hubert Forunier's side to the away win at 9-10 with Stan James.

    Looking at a super singke saturday night that is actually a treble. After midweek matches we know that the top 3 can all score
    Therfore my best bet is in the games feturing the top three in spain real madrid, barca, a madrid over 2.5 match goals and win pays around 2-1 at freds

  2. Aura 7 years ago

    finally either half bets so profitable thinking bradford either half and inter game over 1.5 goals

  3. Skippy 7 years ago

    Lyon over 1.5 tgs tipped earlier in week was evens now 5/6

  4. JonnyUTD 7 years ago

    Why Bastia?

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      JonnyUTD, look at their form – big write-ups on the site earlier.

  5. JonnyUTD 7 years ago

    In fact, don’t answer that. Just viewed the form of both teams, and h2h. Bastia 4-1 to win, and 3-1 dnb. Mad odds.

  6. JonnyUTD 7 years ago

    Yeah just had a look Mr F, think the odds are a little wrong

  7. JonnyUTD 7 years ago

    My list is:

    AZ vs dordrecht
    PSV vs vitesse
    INTER MILAN vs empoli
    VALENCIA vs almeria
    PORTO -1 vs penafiel
    VILLARREAL vs athletic bilbao
    MONACO vs nantes
    BASTIA DNB vs toulouse

    All caps are the choices, whats your opinion Mr F? any of them to avoid, or use them but split them into smaller bets?

  8. Jamie 7 years ago

    Anyone got any tips for btts tonight?

  9. daz 7 years ago

    Take Valencia @1.80 v Almeria currently 2-2.Valencia will be stronger 2nd half with strong players like Negredo will come on.Same scenario when I said back Utd @1.90 in-running.

  10. Shaper546 7 years ago

    My over 2.5 bet pay just short of 3-1. All winnings from shrewsbury middlesborough super dbl on it

  11. daz 7 years ago

    Valencia 3-2

  12. daz 7 years ago

    Valencia won 3-2 :)

  13. Mversed 7 years ago

    That Alvaro Negredo goal for Valencia has just brought up my 8fold acca at odds 60.76, all thanks to Bournemouth, Bristol City, Tamworth, Lyon, Hapoel Kiryat Shmona all having won away from home plus Sochaux DC, Osasuna DC and of course Valencia. Having a boxing day hangover, no?

  14. Furthermore 7 years ago

    Come on, just two games left for my acca to roll in

    Porto -1
    Villareal to win

    For 630£ from a fiver.

    BOL to me

  15. jim 7 years ago

    Bastia blew that, sat way too deep after scoring and never tested Toulouse makeshift defence. Took the plus 1 handicap so not all bad.

  16. Dublin Dave 7 years ago

    Penafiel just scored bringing in a 2/1 btts which Ral put up somewhere on this forum, dont know how you tipped it because Penefiel dont score very much but i was on it and thanks for the heads up.

    • raaljaca 7 years ago

      Dave took it as Porto conceded to the side bottom of the league, one place below Penafiel, and also Penafiel do score at home but tend to lose. Price just looked way to big mate and delighted you were on it.
