With 11 rounds to go until the end of the season, Manchester City is 16 points clear at the top of the table and only a miracle might make them lose the EPL title. The other big clubs are fighting for a top-four finish, which will earn them a Champions League spot next season. The Red Devils are second in the standings but the difference between them and fifth-place Tottenham is only four points. The Blues are three points behind their opponents and in case of an away win they will surely climb the standings. Both teams are coming after two draw matches in the mid-week Champions League knockout stages.

After two Premier League defeats in a row, Chelsea bounced back and won their home match 3-0 against relegation side West Brom, and it looks like they found their best shape at the right time, just before this huge clash Sunday against Manchester United. Once again, we expect Jose Mourinho to park the bus as he usually does against big teams and try not to lose this game. Chelsea is determined to return home with the three points, and the numbers on the soccer odds board for this outcome are a huge +255 with Unibet. However, because we are always trying to find the best value with our soccer picks, we will cover ourselves in case of a draw.

Nobody can catch Paris Saint-Germain as they are leading the standings by a huge 12-point margin. Reigning champion AS Monaco travels to play Toulouse, the second-worst attack in the French top-flight league with just 22 goals scored in 26 matches. AS Monaco is on fire, undefeated in their last 11 Ligue fixtures and winning eight matches in the process. This is a must-win for the visitors as Marseille is breathing down their necks, one point behind them. They are fully focused on their domestic league as they are out of the Europe Cups at this stage. They are by far the better side and they should have enough to win Saturday's clash. We don’t understand why the bookmakers are offering such a huge price for an away win, but we will take this gift and make this tip our banker of the week.

After a poor start to their second half of the season, Valencia bounced back and enters Sunday's match full of confidence after wins against Levante and Malaga. Despite sitting 12th in the standings, Real Sociedad is a beautiful side with a huge attacking firepower, having the fourth-best attack in La Liga with 46 goals netted in 24 rounds. They are scoring goals for fun but at the same time struggling to keep clean sheets. We expect a goal-fest, a high-scoring affair between two classic attacking sides with huge defensive issues.
