El Clasico provides a nice alternative to the usual domestic action on our tellys tonight as Real Madrid and Barcelona go head-to-head in the first leg of the Copa Del Rey semi-final live on BT Sport.

The sides enjoyed mixed fortunes in England last week where Real Madrid trounced Liverpool to take a 5-2 lead into their Champions League return leg, while Barcelona exited the Europa League thanks to a 2-1 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Things went from bad to worse for Barca who suffered their second defeat in the league at 15th placed Almeria on Sunday after Real dropped two points in the Madrid derby a day earlier.

That left Barca seven points clear of their great rivals in La Liga but tonight's match comes at a difficult time for Xavi's men who haven't enjoyed the greatest of weeks and have some injuries to contend with.

Top scorer Robert Lewandowski is ruled out with a hamstring injury. The Polish striker's form has dipped since the new year but that's not to say he won't be a big loss in leading the line. Barca are also without Pedri and Dembele so there's plenty of holes in Xavi's squads for the trip to Madrid.

Carlo Ancelotti's men were irresistible at Anfield last week after an early scare and with the return leg in this one not for another month they'll want to take advantage of Barca's predicament to establish another first-leg advantage.

They'll also need to reverse a trend of wins for Barca at the Bernabeu but there's no better opportunity than to do it tonight.

    As a Chelsea fan, rather then dwell on the fact that Potter is going to be with us for another fortnight or so, I thought I would take advantage of how toothless the boys in blue have become under his guidance.

    Leeds to win at Chelsea
    Dortmund to win at Chelsea
    Leicester to beat Chelsea

    £10 at Bet365 returns just over a grand.

    The double chance on the above is between 7 and 8/1 which may have been a more sensible approach. Of the 3 games Dortmund could be a draw as the players might actually care a bit more about that one. However, I think subconsciously the players and the manager all know he’s going and that must have a huge effect.

    • Eamon501 9 months ago

      Leeds couldn’t win a raffle as bad as Chelsea are

    • chelseagirl 9 months ago

      Aye thats a good looking treble have some of that maself. Have a free bet to use and i always stick it on something daft but could happen. Dortmund will be the hardest game here in my opinion and its the one Chelsea must try and win the most.Potter has to get Mount back in that team too if he was no good he would not be playing for England.

  3. Aceguymiller 9 months ago

    Dunfermline Athletic to win at Chelsea to????

    • evens knievens 9 months ago

      They probably would at the moment.
      In fairness, it’s not all Potter’s fault. If they had actually got rid of the same amount of players on loan as they brought in, his life would be simpler but at the moment he don’t know who to pick and leave out. As for Leeds, they’ve beaten Chelsea once already and I’m sure they will see this as a great opportunity.

      Admin deleted post, person moaning about single bets you post,singles, doubles etc people moaning about losers lately,hence why I posted
      an acca and then reminded people not to aim pointless jibes if it loses but unfortunately somebody didn’t understand post and decided to take a dig anyway,just couldn’t make it up if I tried 😄

      Elvis/Love it – I deleted some unecessary comments last night but that post came afterwards therefore losing the context!

      In essence, Love It was putting a good word in for your posts Elvis and trying to ask folk to move on (I think!)

      I too apologise for any offence caused with my post a couple of days ago – not sure if it did but apologies anyway.

      It is difficult to moderate a site 24/7 and I don’t think anyone really wants that. It is a great platform and (for the most part!!) a largely positive one.

      We are all in it together in this betting ‘tipping’ lark so we have a common goal which is what we need to focus on rather than how/when someone chooses to post.

      Best of luck today everyone 👍

  5. maccathered 9 months ago

    A few bets I have take this morning.
    Man Utd to win the F.A Cup at 9/4
    Yet another home tie for the Mancs and don’t underestimate how much energy that saves a team, no travelling long journeys etc etc, you would expect them to meet City in the final.

    Man Utd to win the Europa league at 5/2
    There is one team left in it that could cause Man Utd a problem and that’s Arsenal but these two could meet in the latter rounds, Arsenal will obviously prioritise the league so the value has to be with the mancs.

    Also done the double at skybet at 9/1
    Obviously these depend on players staying fit for the rest of the campaign as we know they can’t rotate to the same level as the first eleven.
    Best of luck

    • dannyrichie999 9 months ago

      Thanks for the tip. I’ll definitely be on the F.A cup one with it likely being a 50/50 shootout with City. Can’t agree with your write up about Arsenal being the only team that can cause them problems. Leverkusen are a good attacking team. Sevilla are no mugs in Europa, Juventus have nothing to play for but Europa and Jose Mourinho will want to get one over them. Good luck though!

    • Deano86 9 months ago

      Still plenty of quality teams left in as danny says leverkusen would be a problem , Sevilla , juventus , arsenal , roma or sociedad would all be tough games!!

    • maccathered 9 months ago

      Roma??? Leverkusen are you taking the p*ss Deano lol

    • SmokeyJoe 9 months ago

      I’m with Macca on this 😂 Roma and Leverkusen won’t trouble United in this form. Both fair to medium sides in the grand scheme of things

    • maccathered 9 months ago

      No disrespect to them teams but you would expect United to at least reach the final.

    • Deano86 9 months ago

      Leverkusen on their day yes they can be dangerous , main dangers for me though will be arsenal and sociedad ,

  6. maccathered 9 months ago

    Leverkusen shouldn’t be a problem. Juventus would of been a problem a few years ago but they need a big rebuild, it really is a weak field with Arsenal and Man Utd obviously the two strongest teams left in it, i think we’ll get a run for our money.

    • chelseagirl 9 months ago

      Agreed i would be worried about Union Berlin and Freiburg who are both sitting high in the league.

  8. Double Handful 9 months ago

    Bet for March

    Bristol Rovers v Barnsley

    Barnsley win
    Over 1 goal in the match for Barnsley
    Over 6 corners in the match both teams combined 2/1 bet365 bet builder.

    Had this game penciled in about 5 weeks now the reason being to target corners.First noticed off the amount of corners were in BR matches then spotted Barnsley games were also hitting good numbers as well.

    Firstly I’ll go into Barnsley being currently the leading goal scorers in the top 4 English leagues over the last 6 games scoring 16 goals. Over the last 3 games they have scored 11. Last 2 away games they have scored 7 in total. No suprise they are top of the league 1 form table currently. They have won 12 of the last 16 games since October.

    Now for the corners, BR matches over the last 5 games both teams combined read like this ( the most recent game first) 11, 13, 16, 9, 8

    Barnsley matches total corners both teams combined over the last 5 games read 10,10,13, 8, 13. The match with only 8 corners had a sending off after 30 minutes for Barnsley.

    Obviously stats on paper are cute but I like to go that bit deeper with my bets so I looked into both sides and a player I noticed for Barnsley was their right wing-back Jordan Williams who has been getting forward as much as possible this season down the wing, actually scoring 5 goals this season and assisting 5 also which is the joint top most assists for Barnsley, his contribution to the game is helping Barnsley get corners but also he is leaving space at the back at times for the opposition to counter helping the opposition with corners for them.
    The 3-5-2 formation from Barnsley with the two attacking wing backs is giving punters a great chance of hitting good numbers on the corner count especially eith BR hitting even higher numbers.
    The key player I want playing for this game is Jordan Williams, if he is isn’t in the starting line up I will have no problem cashing this bet out.

    I have started 2023 off slowly with 2 losers but it was good to see my original bet from Feb which was postponed at the last minute come in during the week with an early first half goal from Salford, which gives me the confidence I was at least on the right track originally.

    I have 95% of stake on at the 2/1 but also have 5 % on Barnsley win, over 1 goal for Barnsley and over 9 corners in the match at 10/3 also with bet365.

    • Double Handful 9 months ago

      Yeah I wouldn’t back them at 13/2, 11/10 is a fair price for the 1 goal as Salford do try to get that early goal. My mate is a Barrow fan and said they were the best side he had seen at Holker Street this season do they must have performed well so I’d expect the confidence to be still there from that mauling of Mansfield.
      I didn’t want to back them this month as my last 2 bets have involved Salford and really had my eye on the corners for the game above. The closer it has got to the game I have really been strong on them winning the match that is why the corners are just a little boost on the odds. Wouldn’t put anyone off backing Barnsley at 11/10 think it is an amazing price, can’t see a better bet with as much confidence .
      Should be comfortable double for you. Best of luck.

    • Double Handful 9 months ago

      Just want to add the return from injury for Barnsley of Josh Benson and the Cardiff loanee striker Max Watters will be a big boost for the squad. They will be on the bench I’m sure but still great to have if needed. I’ll be shocked if Barnsley aren’t a shade of odds on by kick off
