The Nuevo Estadio Roman de Carranza plays host to the first of four matches in our Both Teams To Score four-fold on Sunday. Cadiz are in a relegation battle but despite not winning a league match in well over a month, come into this clash following a hard-earned draw away to Barcelona last Sunday. A late converted penalty by Alex Fernandez and a point against Barca will surely give Alvaro Cervera’s side extra confidence against Real Betis on Sunday afternoon.
The turn of the year and a good run of scoring form by Fernandez and Alvaro Negredo has seen Cadiz’s goalscoring tally increase nicely with seven goals scored in their previous four matches at home. However, some defensive headaches remain for Cervera, with 11 goals conceded during the same period which enhances the chances of Betis scoring on Sunday. The visitors are still pushing for a possible top five finish and are looking for a third straight victory following recent wins against Villarreal and Getafe.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side have scored a total of 14 goals on the road from six matches since late December. However, they’ve also let in eight goals during this time with both teams scoring in four of those previous six games. This is the first top-flight La Liga match between these two sides in Cadiz since 2006, with Betis winning the reverse fixture 1-0 just before Christmas. In summary, Betis might edge the result and win, but both teams can score and kick-off a winning four-fold for us.

The Serie A clash between Roma and AC Milan in the Italian capital looks perhaps the banker selection in our Sunday bet. The home side have scored and conceded for fun this season with free-flowing exciting football – they’ve netted 17 and conceded 11 goals at home in their previous six matches. Paulo Fonseca’s side are unbeaten at home so far during this campaign, but five of their previous seven league matches at the Stadio Olimpico has seen both teams net.
AC Milan find themselves slipping back slightly in the title race after three defeats in their last five league matches. Milan recently lost away to Spezia, but have been generally solid and impressive away from home this season – with nine-wins, one draw and that recent defeat. The visitors have managed to score away in Rome in four of the last five visits since 2016 and have only failed to score once on the road since early October last year.
Lyon will be hoping to keep the pressure on Lille in the Ligue 1 title race, while Marseille are still in the hunt for a top five finish this season. Marseille have had plenty of issues already this year with new interim manager Nasser Larguet only taking over from the departed Andre Villas-Boas earlier this month. The home side are now unbeaten in four matches in all competitions following defeat to PSG earlier this month.
Les Olympiens have a talented squad and plenty of attacking stars, but haven’t managed a home clear-sheet in all competitions since a 1-0 win against Toulouse just over one-year-ago. The visitors have been in great form on the road with eight wins and two draws in a 10-match run since last October. Les Gones have scored in 26 of their previous 30-away matches in all competitions against Marseille since 1999.
In summary, and in very similar fashion to our earlier match in Spain on Sunday afternoon, the away side, Lyon here could edge victory on the road with both teams scoring. Dimitri Payet has a great scoring record against Lyon having scored three in his last three, while it’s interesting that Lyon have led at half-time in 10 of their 14 away league wins since the start of the 2019/20 season.
The other late fixture on Sunday night sees Villarreal entertain Atletico Madrid at the Estadio de la Ceramica on the east coast of Spain. The home side are pushing for a top five finish and are looking to take more points off Atletico this season after a scoreless draw in Madrid in early October. The Yellow Submarines are still contesting European football and were drawn against Dynamo Kyiv in the last 16 of the Europa League on Friday.
Unai Emery’s side have been exciting to watch over the past two months with both teams scoring in their previous six matches, five in the league and a 2-1 win against Salzburg in the Europa League last Thursday. It’s been a similar run of form for Atletico on the road so far this year, with both teams scoring in five of their previous six away matches and no clean-sheet in all six of those games. Diego Simeone’s side have hit a bad patch of form at present with no win in three and back-to-back home defeats.
The visitors will need to quickly forget their defeat to Chelsea in the Champions League earlier this week with both Real Madrid and Barcelona making up ground in the league table. Villarreal have only been stopped from scoring once in their previous 11 home games (0-0 against Elche) in early December, while five of Atletico’s last seven La Liga games saw both teams score before half-time. In summary, with Gerard Moreno (six goals in five-matches) in great form and Luis Suarez netting (four in six) recently, it’s hard to see both teams not scoring in this one on Sunday night.
