Real Betis vs Real Madrid

This Sunday Real Betis will attempt to get one over Real Madrid as they welcome them to their Estadio Benito Villamarín for matchday 19 in La Liga. Quique Setién finds his side in sixth place trailing their upcoming opponents by four points making this a huge game if they can secure the available three points. Setién would have hoped for his side to enter this game in better form as they have currently gone two games without a win after drawing to Eibar and losing to Huesca. This has not been Real Madrid’s finest season and with Barcelona ten points clear at the top of the table they will have to admit defeat this season. Los Blancos head into this fixture off the back of a 3-0 win against Leganes in the Copa del Rey, but had previously lost 2-0 to Real Sociedad in the league. If you fancy Betis’ chances then SkyBet is offering odds of 21/10, while Madrid sit at 23/20 with Bet365.

Barcelona vs Eibar

Eibar faces the daunting task of travelling to the Nou Camp this Sunday to face La Liga’s main powerhouse, Barcelona. Ernesto Valverde will be expecting three points from this fixture to make sure he maintains his five-point lead over Atletico Madrid and extend his five-game winning streak across league fixtures. Barca went up against Getafe in their previous league match and scaped a 2-1 victory thanks to Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez. Eibar arrive aiming to be just the third side to beat Barcelona this season, but if their form this season is anything to go by then their chances look small. Eibar are without a win in five games and have drawn their last four with their most recent coming against Villarreal. As expected Barca are clear favourites with odds of 1/7 with Betway, while their opponents sit at 16/1.

Napoli vs Sassuolo

Napoli welcome Sassuolo to their San Paolo Stadium this Sunday as they go head-to-head in the Coppa Italia Round of 16. Napoli have been in strong form this season and their efforts have earned them a spot up in second place where they currently sit in Juventus’ shadow who have a nine-point lead at the top of the table. The hosts had been enjoying a streak of four wins before they lost to Inter Milan 1-0, but they bounced back in their latest fixture against Bologna with a 3-2 win. Their opponents have the odds stacked against them and arrive off the back of a huge 6-2 defeat too Atlanta in their previous game, this defeat marked their second consecutive loss. Napoli arrive as clear favourites and Skybet are offering a small price of 2/5 for them to win, if you fancy the underdog’s chances then Bet365 have them to win at 6/1.

Marseille vs Monaco

Rudi Garcia will be hoping to add three points to his sides total this weekend when his Marseille outfit go up against a struggling Monaco side at the Orange Vélodrome. Garica’s men sit up in sixth place but hold a game in hand over most teams that sit above them currently. Marseille had been higher up the table but their recent form has seen them give up multiple places. Following their recent loss to Andrezieux, they have now gone seven games without a win across all competitions. Monaco’s season continues to dish out little success for them and 18 games in they sit down in 19th in real danger of facing relegation. They scraped a victory in their previous fixture against Rennes on penalties in the Coupe de la Ligue. The hosts arrive as favourites with odds of 6/10 with SkyBet, while Monaco have a price of 5/1 with Bet365.
