Clash of the Titans: Weekend betting tips

Another weekend of exciting football matches of some tough teams around some major European leagues. 

Check our preview, predictions, and head to head statistics below that will help you to choose the right selection for your weekend bet slip.

Deportivo Alaves vs Real Madrid

Deportivo Alaves  5.70 | Draw 4.25  |  Real Madrid 1.67

Kick-off: 23rd January 2021 8:00pm (GMT)

Real Madrid will be visiting Deportivo Alaves at the Mendizorrotza Stadium on Saturday for their Spanish La Liga fixture. 

The reigning Spanish champions were knocked out of the Spanish Super Cup by Athletic Bilbao, before seeing their Copa del Rey campaign halted abruptly by third-division Alcoyano.

Our Tip: Real Madrid to score 1:0 as correct score @7.30

Real Madrid are four points adrift of leaders Atletico Madrid, who have two games in hand. Real Madrid have won just one from the last three games. 

Alaves find themselves stuck in a relegation battle with no win in the league since the turn of the year. However, it is worth noting in the earlier meeting between the two sides it was Alaves which secured all three points in a shock 2-1 win at the Bernabeu.

Tip: Karim Benzema to be the first goalscorer @4.05

Real Madrid, rather unsurprisingly, have dominated this fixture with 15 wins from 19 clashes. One of those was earlier this season, while the other came in October 2018 when El Glorioso eked out a slender 1-0 win at home.

Elche CF vs FC Barcelona

Elche CF  7.80 | Draw 5.30  | FC Barcelona 1.44

Kick-off: 24th January 2021 3:15pm (GMT)

Elche CF will be taking on away team Barcelona at Estadio Martínez Valero in this La Liga game on Sunday.

Both Barcelona and Elche CF will be looking to take the three points which will make this match an interesting one to place your bets on.

Our Tip: Highest scoring half will be second half @1.92

Elche CF sit on 18th place in the table having drawn against Real Valladolid 2-2 last time out, while the visitors, Barcelona are in third place after their 0-4 win against Granada CF.

Elche previously kept a clean sheet at home eight games ago, and have kept eight clean sheets in their last 20 home games. 

Barcelona last failed to score away in the league 6 games ago and have missed the net in 5 of their last 20 away league games.

Of the 6 league games Elche has won at home, they scored the first 6 times. Of the 5 away games Barcelona has lost, they conceded the first 5 times.

Our Tip: Both teams to score @1.68

Schalke 04 take on Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga on Sunday, which represents the side currently occupying the bottom spot on the table taking on the reigning champions and league leaders.
