Best three-fold picks to bank on for Saturday
This weekend’s football action is sure to by packed with thrills yet, as a number of interesting matchups are set to be on show.
Barcelona look to consolidate their lead in the Spanish top-flight when they travel to Celta Vigo, Borussia Dortmund will round off an impressive season with a clash versus Hoffenheim and Manchester United and Norwich City battle for an FA Cup semifinal spot at Carrow Road.
We’ve picked out the tips we think would suffice from these games, specially for you on our routine betting tips!
Barcelona to win big in Vigo:
Barcelona returned to winning ways when they pipped Athletic Club last time out, and are very much the favourites to cart home the points when they take on Celta Vigo here.
The Blaugrana have emerged victorious in four of their last five league games, though their efforts were well frustrated by Sevilla on their last travel, a game which ended goalless in that sequence.
However, the defending champions will fancy their chances of reclaiming sole ownership of top spot in the division, as they are currently tied on points with Real Madrid.
Celta have beaten Deportivo Alavés and Real Sociedad in their last two outings without conceding in those games, and they will be mentally prepared for the test that awaits them at the Abanca-Balaídos.
Óscar García Junyent’s men will be no pushovers, but we expect Barca to secure a very comfortable victory here, priced 1.62 for odds by Bet9ja.
Manchester United to edge past Norwich:
Manchester United are looking to lift the FA Cup for a record-equalling 13th time this season while their opposition Norwich have yet to play in the showpiece of the competition, so we still view this one to be a bridge too far for them.
The Canaries will be looking to make the most of reaching the quarter-finals of this tournament for the first time since the 1991/1992 campaign but they are currently embroiled in a disastrous run of results which have seen them lose all of their last three games without scoring.
Manchester United put three past Sheffield United in their preparation for this game, and with this tournament giving them an even better chance of silverware this season, it is looking like to be a case of trying to limit damage limitation for the minnows.
Norwich have had an odds-defying run in the FA Cup but we think the Red Devils are better placed to make it past them into the semis, and an outright is available for 1.445 on 1xbet.
Dortmund to beat Hoffenheim:
Borussia Dortmund head into the final round of games in the 2019/2020 Bundesliga campaign having already secured the runners-up spot behind champions Bayern Munich, but their opposition Hoffenheim are in need of at least a point to provisionally qualify for the Europa League.
Hoffenheim, on their part, sit seventh on 49 points same as Wolfsburg in sixth and even racked up their biggest win of the season last weekend when they thrashed Union Berlin 4-0. With Wolfsburg playing Bayern Munich on the league’s grande finale, Die Kraichgauer will need a positive result and hope Wolfsburg come unstuck against the champions.
However, we feel Dortmund will be in no mood of granting favours, so a home win for odds of 1.70 by Bet365 is our pick here.
