Real Madrid vs. Barcelona (La Liga Round 29) - Sunday 4:00 PM ET

Click Here for Real Madrid vs Barcelona Odds

Sunday is El Clasico day. The most anticipated match in the European top five leagues is definitely a game to watch and live-bet on. It might not be decisive in terms of La Liga's title race but the two teams hate each other and will show that on the pitch. Real Madrid is sitting 10 points clear at the top of the table with 10 rounds to go till the end of the season while Barcelona is fighting for a top-four finish and has the chance to show how quickly the revolution is going under their new manager and Blaugrana legend, Xavi.

Real Madrid’s star striker and most important player, Karim Benzema is doubtful for this clash after picking up an injury in the 3-0 win against Mallorca. He has not been ruled out for Sunday's Clasico against Barcelona, but Real Madrid currently believes that their striker has a 40 percent chance to make the cut. Carlo Ancelotti will definitely not risk him if he’s not fully fit because he needs him ready for the Champions League quarter-finals against Chelsea.

As for Barcelona, they claimed a 4-0 impressive win over Osasuna at home last weekend. On top of that, they qualified in the Europa League semi-finals where they will play Eintracht Frankfurt. They are unbeaten in their previous 11 games across all competitions winning eight in the process. It’s important to note that in the previous two months they scored four goals against Napoli, Atletico Madrid, or Valencia. They are unbeaten in their previous 10 away games but stats are not that important when betting on El Clasico.

Real Madrid became the first team in Clasico history to reach 100 wins across all competitions beating Barcelona in their last five mutual encounters across all competitions. Obviously, the value is on them but without Benzema, we will avoid backing them to win this clash. Xavi could also become only the third Barcelona coach to lose in each of his first two games against Real Madrid in all competitions in the 21st century. We expect an entertaining game with goals from both sides and at least three goals on the scoresheet.

Aston Villa vs. Arsenal (Premier League Round 30) - Saturday 8:30 AM ET

Click Here for Aston Villa vs Arsenal Odds

Arsenal’s five-match winning run came to an end on Wednesday when they lost 2-0 to Liverpool. Gabriel Martinelli and Thomas Partey all played well for the Gunners, despite their defeat, and the visitors will be eager to return to winning ways this weekend against Aston Villa.

Arsenal are has got some very talented young players inside their squad and they are fighting for the Champions League spots. They are sitting one point above fifth-placed Man United having two games in hand on them.

On the other side, Aston Villa had their own good run ended at the weekend, in a defeat by West Ham, but they improved significantly in recent weeks under Steven Gerrard. They destroyed Southampton beating them 4-0 in their previous home fixture but failed to win two consecutive home matches in the same season in over 12 months.

  • Over 2.5 Goals (-110)

AS Monaco vs. Paris Saint-Germain (Ligue 1 Round 29) - Sunday 8:00 AM ET

Click Here for AS Monaco vs. PSG Odds

AS Monaco enters this clash on the back of a 1-1 draw against Braga in the second leg of the Europa League Round of 16, getting knocked out of the competition. They are sitting eight in the standings, six points behind the European spots and it looks like they will remain out of the European competitions. Monaco has been having huge ups and downs of late, with the team beating Marseille while losing to both Reims and Strasbourg. They do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of the visit of PSG and on top of that, they played four games in the last 11 days.

On the other side, PSG returned to winning ways from a disappointing Champions League loss to Real Madrid, beating Bordeaux 3-0 last weekend on home soil. Since they have only the domestic league to play in, we expect them to use their best starting XI against and return home with the three points.
