This match is the clash of the round in the European top soccer leagues. Manchester City are the only unbeaten team in the Premier League, being 15 points clear at the top of the table after 22 rounds and it looks like they will surely win the title. On the other side, Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 17 fixtures in all competitions and will enter trying to revenge the 5-0 defeat away at the Citizens earlier in the season when one of their main players, Sadio Mane, was red-carded. We are talking about the 2 best attacking sides from the EPL, 2 teams with incredible skills, amazing offensive tactics, huge depth and high pressing. This is the main reason why we are betting the goals market. Yes, Manchester City are huge favorites and you probably won’t find better odds (+125 with Betfair) for their win any time soon, but the clever choice is to skip the winners market. Best pick for the match: Over 3 goals AH at -125 with Coral.

Nantes vs. PSG (Ligue 1 – Round 20)

The 2nd half of the French Ligue 1 is starting in style with the leaders PSG traveling to play 5th-place Nantes. PSG are 9 points clear at the top of the table and started the New Year with consecutive wins in the French Cups, scoring 8 goals and conceding just 1. Nantes enter on the back of a 3-match winning run in all competitions having the 3rd-best defense in the French top-flight league with just 18 goals conceded this season. PSG are scoring goals for fun and their attacking trio (Neymar, Cavani and Mbappe) is on fire. We expect them to totally dominate this clash and easily cover the -1.5 Asian handicap line. Best pick for the match: PSG to win with -1.5 AH at -118 with Unibet.

Deportivo La Coruna vs. Valencia (La Liga – Round 19)

After an amazing start to their 2017/18 La Liga campaign, Valencia struggled in December, losing 3 from their 5 fixtures due to injuries and suspensions. Right now, they have a fully-fit squad at their disposal and they started the New Year with 2 wins, one in the Spanish top-flight league 2-1 home against Girona, and one in the Spanish Cup where they trashed Las Palmas 4-0. Deportivo La Coruna are sitting just one point above the danger zone being among the teams fighting to avoid relegation. The reverse match saw a convincing 3-0 Valencia win on their turf and we expect them to win this away clash. Best pick of the match: Valencia to win at +130 with Betfair.

RB Leipzig vs. Schalke (Bundesliga – Round 18)

After an impressive 1st half of the season in which they have taken the top-flight league by storm, sitting 2nd in the standings with 30 points earned, Schalke will enter this match full of confidence and determined to start the 2nd half with a win against a tough opponent. This match is a 6-pointer as the 2 sides are separated by just 2 points with RB Leipzig sitting 5th with 28 points. Leipzig are winless in their last 4 Bundesliga fixtures, but they’ve lost just 1 match at home all season. We expect a goal-fest between 2 attacking minded teams. Best pick for the match: Over 2.5 goals in the match at -109 with WilliamHill.
