This week in Soccer provides plenty of opportunity for the higher placed teams to secure points as a number of the European giants face teams placed considerably lower in their respective leagues. Juventus v Atalanta go head to head this Friday with odds favouring a Juventus win at 1/6. Over the last 31 meets between the two teams Juventus have come out on top 23 times and Atalanta just twice, the remaining 6 resulting in draws.
Over in Germany, Bayern Munich also have what looks to be a straight forward game ahead of them this weekend as they travel up to Paderborn in a bid to increase their current 8-point lead over Wolfsburg. The last time the two teams met Bayern succeeded with a 4-0 win over Paderburn 07 and odds are favouring a similar outcome this weekend, with over 2.5 goals currently priced at 4/9.
As we move across to Spain, Barcelona, who have recently been highlighted as having the best goal difference in Europe, are also set for a win as they welcome Malaga CF on Saturday. Over their last 29 meetings Barcelona have taken 21 wins and 6 draws with Malaga taking just 2 wins, odds are also greatly in Barcelona’s favour with a win currently priced at 1/9 with Malaga priced at a huge 22/1 should they strike lucky. Previous games between these two teams have resulted in some high scores to which bet365 are currently offering 3/10 for over 2.5 goals. Although history and odds suggest an easy Barcelona win, Malaga are chasing a European place this year and could cause a shock similar to that of David Moyes’s Real Soceidad who beat the Catalan giants 1-0 last month.
Alongside the many Soccer fixtures this weekend, we also have a number of NBA games to look forward too. The New York Knicks take on Miami Heat this Saturday (00.30 GMT), with both teams having only won 2 out of their last 8 games. The Heat secured one of those wins just last week against the Knicks which could make for another interesting meet this time around. Boston Celtics however, are looking pretty strong and should be set to take a win from this weekend’s meet against Sacramento Kings, the Celtics have currently won 4 out of their last 8 games whereas the Kings have only won 2. In addition, Toronto Raptors meet against Atlanta Hawks on Saturday which should make for another sure win for the Raptors given that they have only lost 2 out of their last 8 whereas the Hawks have only won 2 of theirs.
