Alaves vs Real Sociedad: Sociedad win to nil

La Liga leaders Real Sociedad makes the short trip across the Basque Country for a regional derby against Deportivo Alaves on Sunday night, hoping to resist pressure from Atletico Madrid in second, and to extend their seven-point lead from Real Madrid and 10-point lead from Barcelona, in the early stages of the season.

The San Sebastian natives have caught the eye in La Liga with their ability to score frequently, as well as keeping goals out at the other end. They are the top scorers in the league with 22 goals, while only Atletico Madrid have conceded fewer than them in the league.

Across all competitions, Sociedad have let in just six goals in their 15 games this season. Considering they have also been drawn into a tricky Europa League group, their record has been excellent.

Alaves are currently languishing in mid-table, which was much expected for the club, but their result last week was certainly a surprise, winning away to Real Madrid, however, two back-to-back shocks are unlikely. Alaves have failed to score in this fixture on four of the last eight occasions, and BTTS has only occurred once in that time, while seven of La Real’s nine wins this season have been to nil, and a further two draws saw them keep clean sheets, against Real Madrid and AZ Alkmaar.

Back a solid Sociedad side to win to nil at Alaves this weekend, with odds of 7/4 right here.

Juventus vs Torino: Juventus to win from behind

The first Turin derby of the 2020/21 Serie A season takes place on Saturday evening, with Torino travelling to the Allianz Stadium to face Juventus, a place where Il Toro have still never won in the Turin derby.

This fixture promises to be one of the most surreal between the sides in years when you consider the start both teams have made. Juventus have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight league games, dropping points to Crotone, Hellas Verona and Benevento in that time, and sit six points off leaders AC Milan.

Torino sit in the relegation zone after the opening nine games, but they will be cursing themselves for not being a lot higher in the standings. Marco Giampaolo’s men have been in the lead in six of the eight games they have failed to win in Serie A this season, dropping an astonishing 16 points from winning positions already, the most comical being their 4-3 defeat to Lazio, as they entered the fifth minute of stoppage time 3-2 up.

In five of the last eight meetings at the Allianz Stadium, both teams have scored, and with Torino’s habit of taking the lead and throwing it away combined with Juve’s leaky defensive record so far, Juventus to win from behind at 7/1 is our value tip for this one.

Schalke vs Bayer Leverkusen: Leverkusen (-1)

The most off form side in Europe, Schalke, welcome free-scoring Bayer Leverkusen to the Veltins-Arena on Sunday evening, as they look, once again, to finally end their torrid run in the Bundesliga.

The side from Gelsenkirchen sit at the foot of Germany’s top division, with just three points from their opening nine games. They have won just once in the whole of 2020, and that came in mid-January at home to Borussia Monchengladbach, their decent start at the end of 2019 was the only factor which helped them survive, but if the current rut continues, they will be certainties for the drop.

It is now 25 games in the league since that win, and they are just six short of matching the all-time winless run record, set by part-timers Tasmania Berlin in the 1965-66 season. Bayer Leverkusen will be confident in making that 26 without a win for Schalke, as they have scored 27 goals in their last nine games in all competitions.

Schalke’s last eight league defeats have all been by at least a two-goal margin, as they have by far the worst defensive record, conceding six more than the next worst side, Mainz.

No side have scored fewer goals than Schalke’s six either, so the potency of Leverkusen’s attack against a hapless Schalke side both in attack and defence means we could see a pretty hefty margin of defeat here.

Leverkusen (-1) is our tip, available at odds of 11/8.

Montpellier vs PSG: Montpellier win or draw

Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain travel to early-season European hopefuls Montpellier on Saturday night, with the Parisians hoping to hang on to their slender lead at the top of the table against an in-form side who can overtake them with a win.

Despite a poor start in the Champions League, PSG have reclaimed their own destiny in Group H and can qualify into the knockout rounds easily now. However, it is their surprising league form that has forced the questions Thomas Tuchel's way.

Tuchel has been willing to rotate often, but that has seen them fall short at times in the league, as they have already dropped 11 points after 12 games, including in their last two games, against Monaco and Bordeaux, which saw them pick up just one point.

Montpellier sit just two points behind PSG, as one of the four clubs tied on 23 points from 2nd to 5th. That has been aided by their excellent form in November, which has seen them win their last four games, and three of them have been to nil.

With Tuchel likely to protect some of his key men with an eye on Europe, Montpellier will see this as an opportunity to take points from the champions again, as PSG have only won here once in their last four visits.

Montpellier double chance is priced at 15/8 - click the link to claim.

Roma vs Sassuolo: BTTS + Over 3.5 goals

Two attacking outfits clash at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday afternoon, with Roma hosting surprise strong starters Sassuolo in the Italian capital.

Both sides have been averaging well over two goals a game in all competitions this season. Roma have netted 28 goals in their 12 matches so far, with 50% of those games witnessing over 3.5 goals, while their visitors Sassuolo, have scored 20 in just nine games, scoring three or more on four occasions.

Both clubs have got a potent attacking trio to boast, and for Roma, it has got a Premier League feel about it, with Edin Dzeko, Pedro and Henrikh Mkhitaryan all in great form, as only Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been involved in more goals than Mkhitaryan’s nine.

For Sassuolo, Francesco Caputo, Domenico Berardi and Filip Djuricic have been lighting up Serie A so far, with all three earning international call-ups based on their early season performances.

The two head-to-heads last season gifted us goals in abundance, with the side at home winning 4-2 in both fixtures and you can back BTTS and over 3.5 goals in this one at 6/5 right here.
