The football schedules, in the coming days, will get even busier as the games come in thick and fast. Most bettors are getting ready to take advantage of the massive amount of games to make some extra cash, starting this weekend.
In order to help you to make the best selections for your bet slips this weekend, we’re asking these 5 questions. (Pay attention as they may make the difference between a winning ticket and a losing one this weekend.)
Will Man. City be able to continue their winning run?
Manchester City recently set a new Premier League record when they defeated Swansea. It was their 15th win on the bounce, a record no other Premier League had managed to pull off before.
Up next for the Cityzens is Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspurs. For a team that has scored an average of 3.5 goals whenever they play at home, there’s a high possibility that Man. City will score. But, clinching victory might be more work than usual.
Who will win the “Olympique Derby” in France?
In France, it’s about the game between two clubs that have “Olympique” as part of their names. Second-placed Olympique Lyon takes on fourth-placed Olympique Marseille in what is expected to be a crunchy encounter.
Both teams currently have the same number of points (35) and have conceded the same number of goals (19). What separates them is the amount of goals scored – Lyon, 42 goals, Marseille, 35 goals.
When will Cologne win their first game?
Cologne is currently rock-bottom of the German Bundesliga table. After playing 16 games, they’ve only managed 3 draws and have lost the remaining. In this Game week 17 fixture, they host Wolfsburg, a side that has drawn more games (10) than they’ve either won (3) or lost (3) this season.
Barcelona and Atletico Madrid to remain unbeaten after Gameweek 16?
These two sides are the remaining clubs yet to taste defeat in the Spanish La Liga this season. They’ve both kept it tight at the back too, conceding only 7 goals each.
Atletico Madrid takes on a Deportivo side that has not drawn any game this season while Barcelona takes on Derpotivo La Coruna. Will teams be able to upset the odds and defeat these giants? With Real Madrid in Abu Dhabi vying for the Club World Cup, will Barcelona take the chance to increase their lead?
