Dijon vs Paris Saint-Germain

Thomas Tuchel’s all-conquering PSG side heads to Dijon on Saturday looking to maintain their unbeaten start to the campaign. The Parisian’s are 13 points ahead at the top of Ligue 1 and a trip to struggling Dijon should not create too many problems. The champions are naturally huge favourites for this one with Skybet offering odds of 1/6 for Tuchel’s men to collect their 15th win of the campaign. PSG has only dropped four league points all season so far but worryingly for Tuchel, these came in their last two outings away to Bordeaux and Strasbourg. Paddy Power are offering odds of 6/1 for it to be a third consecutive point, but this is against a Dijon side that has won only one of their last five league games. French World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe has 12 for the season so far and scored in the recent draw in Bordeaux after returning to the side following a shoulder injury.

Hannover 96 vs Bayern Munich

Its two wins from three for Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga as coach Niko Kovac takes his side to Hannover this weekend. The champions are still nine points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund, but their form has changed for the better since their 3-2 defeat at Signal Iduna Park a month ago. Polish striker Robert Lewandowski helped himself to a brace against Nurnberg last weekend then did the same again at the Johan Cruyff ArenA against Ajax in the Champions League on Wednesday. The 30-year-old is priced at 2/7 at Bet365 to be on the scoresheet again on Saturday. The same bookmaker prices the Bavarian giants at 1/5 to collect all three points against a Hannover side who sit second-bottom and without a win in their last three.

Torino vs Juventus

It’s derby day in Turin as Juventus look to continue their dominance of Serie A. The Bianconeri lead the standings by eight points, with only Genoa having prevented them from taking a maximum haul this season. Despite being a little off-colour on Wednesday night in the Champions League were they lost 2-1 in Berne against Young Boys, qualification was already secured and the Old Lady had one eye on this fixture. Cristiano Ronaldo tops the club’s goalscoring charts and the Portuguese superstar is 10/11 with Betfair to be an anytime scorer this weekend. Former Liverpool midfielder Emre Can is likely to replace the suspended Rodrigo Bentancur and Betfair can only see one outcome with Juventus 4/7 to continue their derby dominance, having won the last six. Torino are on a good run of four games without defeat although two of these ended goalless.

Real Madrid vs Rayo Vallecano

It’s another Madrid derby on Saturday as Real host struggling Rayo Vallecano at the Santiago Bernabeu. Santiago Solari’s side’s narrow 1-0 win over basement club Huesca last week failed to impress and Los Blancos were comprehensively beaten at home by CSKA Moscow in the Champions League on Wednesday. However, with qualification to the last 16 already secured, Solari chose to rest some of his key players. Real has never lost to the minnows from the Madrid suburbs and last time they faced each other at the Bernabeu, the home side won 10-2. Ladbrokes price them at 4/5 to win again on Saturday and with over 3.5 goals being scored. Last weekend’s matchwinner Gareth Bale is 13/5 with Ladbrokes to be the first goalscorer. Rayo Vallecano currently sits second-bottom having only won twice all season.

Recommended Bet: Real Madrid to win to nil at 21/20 with Bet365 – BET HERE
