Paris Saint-Germain vs Nantes

Paris Saint-Germain will be hoping to extend their unbeaten run and finish 2018 in style when they face Nantes on Saturday. Thomas Tuchel’s side have won 14 of their 16 league matches and lead the table by 10 points with two games in hand. They have had a couple of matches postponed due to protests. Nantes sit 13th after 16 games and are just four points clear of the relegation zone. Vahid Halilhodžić’s side were winless in four games until their 3-2 win over Marseille. PSG are huge favourites to win the match and are 1/7 with Bet 365 and 1/9 with Ladbrokes. Nantes are massive underdogs and are available at 18/1 with William Hill and 28/1 with Ladbrokes.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayern Munich

Niko Kovac takes his Bayern Munich side to the Commerzbank-Arena to face his old club Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday. For the first time this season, Bayern look settled as they have won their last four league games and have cut the gap to six points at the top. Frankfurt are in 5th, six points behind the champions and are unbeaten in their last three games, winning two of them. Eintracht Frankfurt are priced up as big as 5/1 with Sky Bet. Bayern are short odds to win again in the Bundesliga and can be backed at ½ with Betfair and Ladbrokes.

Napoli vs SPAL

Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli host SPAL on Saturday at the Stadio San Paolo in Serie A. Napoli are aiming to put pressure on unbeaten leaders Juventus by winning at home against lowly SPAL. They left it very late to win last weekend, as a last-gasp free kick from Arkadiusz Milik sealed all three points. It was a welcome win for the Italians, who were knocked out of the Champions League by Liverpool. SPAL were held to a goalless draw by Chievo and are winless in eight matches. Napoli are short odds to win on Saturday and can be backed at 1/5 with Coral and Ladbrokes. SPAL are at 14/1 with Sky Bet and Betfair.

Atletico Madrid vs Espanyol

Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid face Espanyol at home on Saturday. Atletico narrowly beat Rayo Vallecano 3-2 after an 80th minute from Antoine Griezmann. They are now unbeaten in 12 games across all competitions and have won six and drawn two of their home league matches this season. Espanyol are 11th and are in a terrible run of form after a promising start to the season. Manager Rubi will be disappointed with just one win in their last six matches. Atletico are 2/5 with William Hill to gain revenge on their defeats to Espanyol last term, while they are 4/9 with Sky Bet. Espanyol are an enormous 9/1 with Bet365 and 8/1 with Ladbrokes.

Barcelona vs Celta Vigo

League leaders Barcelona host Celta Vigo at the Nou Camp on Saturday night. Valverde’s side will be aiming to secure top spot to end 2018. The Catalans have won their last three league games and lead second-placed Sevilla by three points. Barcelona thrashed Levante 5-0 last weekend with Lionel Messi scoring a hat-trick. Celta Vigo are 9th with 21 points from 16 games. Miguel Cardoso’s sides were unable to back up their away win at Villareal against Leganes last Friday night, as they drew 0-0. The hosts are a short price to win and can be backed at 2/13 with Betfair and 1/7 with Sky Bet. Vigo are 25/1 with William Hill and Ladbrokes.
