For Saturday’s Euro Acca we’re taking a swing by the German Bundesliga where RB Leipzig face Borussia Dortmund. Then we’re off to Italy where Serie A leaders AC Milan are at home to Torino.
Next, to France then where second-placed PSG take on Brest in a must-win match to keep league leaders Lille within touching distance. And, finally, to Spain where Osasuna host Real Madrid who could take top spot if results go their way. Let’s have a look at some of the value we’ve found for these matches.
Leipzig are in robust form of late, they’ve now gone nine matches without defeat and their home Bundesliga record has seen them lose just one of their last 15. Dortmund look rejuvenated under interim manager Edin Terzic, winning three out of their four matches since he took the reins. Their away form in the league hasn’t been bad though it must be said, they’ve won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five on the road.
These don’t tend to be high scoring affairs and the home side are missing quite a few players so Dortmund could really take advantage. Dortmund have won both of their last two visits here and the last five matches between the pair, at the RB Arena and the Westfalstadion have either ended in a Dortmund win or a draw. The safer bet is Dortmund and Draw but with all those missing players for the home side we’re going for the higher odds here and backing Dortmund Draw No Bet.
Milan are pretty strong favourites here, they’ve lost just two of their last 15 home Serie A matches but Torino are somewhat of a bogey team for them. They’ve only managed to beat Torino in two of their last five meetings in all competitions. However, looking at just Serie A matches then Milan have won three and two have ended all square.
Torino have become very tough to beat and could be a menace here. They’re undefeated over their last four Serie A matches, albeit three of which were draws and they’ve scored at least one in all of their away league matches this season bar one. They should get on the scoresheet here but Milan have the momentum and form to get the winner. We’re backing Milan to Win & Both Teams to Score.
The pressure is really mounting on PSG here, another couple of bad results and Lille are going to put more distance between themselves and the current champions. Brest though are in bad away form, they’ve won just one of their last five on their league travels, drawing one and losing three.
PSG have kept four out of six clean sheets at home of late and have kept three out of four over home and away matches. Brest have a very good away goals record of 1.22 per match but that PSG record is swinging it here for us. Brest haven’t played away to PSG since 2013 and the occasion could get to them here. Match this with PSG’s record of conceding just 0.56 goals per home league game and we’re backing BTTS: No.
Osasuna have now gone 10 La Liga matches since their last win and that’s hardly going to change here. La Liga looks like a two-horse race now and it’s up to Real to stop city rivals Atletico. They’ve been in mighty form of late, winning six and drawing one of their last seven matches in the league.
Over their last five meetings with Osasuna, both home and away, they’ve won all five by at least two goals. In their away matches they’ve won four of their last six by at least two goals as well. With those stats we’re getting some great value odds on the Real Madrid (-1) Handicap here.
