Rennes – Caen
. Caen sit at the bottom of the league but aren’t too shy when it comes to scoring away from home. They possess the second worst defense but also the fourth best attack in the league which guarantees a lot of goals in their matches. The visitors also have a weakness when defending set-pieces and this means that it’s very likely for them to concede in this game. Rennes played a tough match against Reims in the French Cup midweek and may have some tired legs for this game. They haven’t won in any of their last five league games and the motivated team of Caen will want to win as many points as possible.
Tip: Both teams to score @ 1.90
Inter – Torino
After eliminating Sampdoria in the cup Inter are looking to improve their standing in Serie A. The hosts are unbeaten in their last five Serie A matches and their for has drastically improved after signing Lukas Podolski and Shaqiri. The new players didn’t need much time to integrate and are now valuable first team members. Roberto Mancini may decide to field a very offensive starting eleven with Guarin and Hernandes acting as a pivot due to Gary Medel’s suspension. Torino’s form is also very impressive – the visitors haven’t lost in their last six league games and will try to extend that streak on Sunday. On the other hand, Inter are undefeated in their last 17 meetings against this opponent and this could be a great motivation for them to win.
Tip: 1 @ 1.80
Juventus – Chievo
Many predict a Juventus win here and while it may seem obvious, there’s an even better outcome to look out for. Even though Juve won seven out of their nine home games, only two of them have been achieved with a two-goals or more advantage during the first half. In addition, Chievo were losing with more than one goal at half time in their away games only once – against Roma. The hosts have won their last five matches against Chievo and will be looking to extend this run.
Tip: Draw (-1) at Half Time @ 2.75
Valencia – Sevilla
Valencia’s home form is amazing because they haven’t lost a match at Mestalla since the end of November. Los Che have won nine of their last eleven games in Liga BBVA and their last three home games against Sevilla. The visitors are currently on a winning streak of five games in the league and have been pretty impressive away from home. This time the opponent is a stronger team and they’ll be without Stephane Mbia who is at the AFCON. For Valencia the only missing player is Pablo Piatti, who is injured. Both teams look equally strong but I think the fact Valencia are playing at home will give them a slight advantage.
Tip: 1 @ 2.38
