Bayern to make it 42 games unbeaten in the Bundesliga
While the FA Cup takes centre stage in England this weekend, League action dominates around Europe and we have come up with a 4/1 treble which can help start the weekend with a bang.
Bayern Munich kick-off the second half of the Bundesliga with a tricky looking trip to Borussia Mönchengladbach but Pep Guardiola’s side, along with Lille and Celta Vigo, can bag victories to land a retrun of £42 from a £10 stake.
Borussia Mönchengladbach have had all winter to come up with a plan to tackle Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich but it promises to be business as usual for the German champions.
However, Bayern may not have it all their own way at Borussia-Park with Lucien Favre’s side unbeaten at home this season and on an eight-game run without defeat in the league.
However, there is no scope for a 41-game unbeaten run without quality and the Champions League and Club World Cup holders have that in abundance.
Since the resumption of Ligue 1 Lille have suffered back-to-back defeats to Reims and St Etienne but René Girard’s side can get back to winning ways against Rennes.
A 3-0 midweek victory in the Coupe de France at fifth tier side Iris Club de Croix will have restored confidence in the Lille camp and despite defeat at home last time out, Les Dogues have suffered just two defeats in front of their home fans.
Rennes, on the other, have stemmed the flow of defeats since the winter break but two successive draws has seen Philippe Montanier’s side go five league matches without a win.
The Red and Blacks will have been boosted by Ola Toivonen’s arrival but with no victory on the road since October and no win in eight at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy, expect Lille to bank all three points.
On first reading Celta Vigo’s recent form does not make impressive reading but at closer inspection the Célticos have a strong record Estadio Balaídos.
Luis Enrique’s side can add to a run of three straight wins at home in all competitions against a Real Betis team rooted to the bottom of La Liga.
Despite some respite coming in the form of the Copa del Rey in recent weeks, Betis have not won in 13 attempts in the league and not even new manager Gabriel Calderon will be able to stop the rot for the Green and Whites.
