Monday night’s football has a distinct Latin flavour as we’ve found some value picks from La Liga, the Serie A and the Primeira Liga where Tondela host Benfica, Salernitanta entertain Spezia in Italy and Athletic Bilbao face Espanyol in Spain. Let’s have a look then at what we’ve turned up in the markets.

7pm – Tondela vs Benfica: Benfica to Win 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0

Tondela are hovering dangerously above the relegation zone, just three points separate themselves in 13th and Famalicao in 16th at the time of writing. They’re actually in decent enough league form, winning two of their last five, drawing two and losing one. At the Estadio Joao Cardoso things aren’t quite so good where they’ve won two and lost three.

Benfica are six points behind second-placed Sporting and need to keep the pressure up on the Lions here. They’ve won two of their last five, drawing one and losing two while their away league games have seen them win three, draw one and lose one, scoring 15 and conceding five with BTTS landing in three and Overs in three. The Eagles have only conceded seven goals over their 10 away league games this campaign and over their last six visits to the Auriverdes have kept them scoreless four times. With the hosts failing to score in two of their last five on home turf we’re getting some great value here in backing the visitors to win 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0.

7.45pm, Salernitana vs Spezia: Under 2.5 Goals

TV: BT Sport 1

Salernitana’s Serie A days look numbered, they’re rooted to the bottom of the Serie A on just 10 points after 22 games and have only managed to win once in the league in front of their home fans all season. Spezia are eight points above the relegation zone and don’t look like they’ll get dragged in especially seeing as they’ve won four of their last five in the league, beating Napoli and AC Milan on their travels. Their away form has seen them winning three of their last five, losing the other two.

The hosts have won one of their last five, losing the other four and their home form has seen them losing all five of their most previous Serie A games, failing to score in every single one of them. With the home side struggling for goals the visitors hold the advantage, they’ve only, however, scored four over their last five on their outings so we’re going to be looking at a low-scoring affair here. We’re backing Under 2.5 goals.

8pm, Athletic Bilbao vs Espanyol: Bilbao to Win & BTTS

TV: Premier Sports 2

Bilbao are in mighty shape of late, beating both Madrid sides and Barcelona in Extra Time in a Copa del Rey match. Their La Liga form is impressive too, winning three of their last five, drawing one and losing one. Their home La Liga form is awful, they’ve won just one of their last five on home soil, drawing one and losing three.

Espanyol have won none of their last five in all competitions, drawing two (winning one on penalties) and losing three. Their overall La Liga form isn’t great with just one win over their last five, drawing one and losing three while their away form has seen them winning one, drawing one and losing three. The hosts have only kept one clean sheet over their last seven at home in the league while the visitors have scored in all but two of their last seven on their travels. Both should be getting on the scoresheet here but Bilbao’s recent form should stand to them here. We’re going with the hosts to Win and BTTS.
