Vardy Leicester Braga Europa League

Tuesday – Leicester City vs Chelsea

20:15, Sky Sports Main Event

Why we’re watching:

Two of the Premier League’s prime top four candidates face off at the King Power Stadium, when Leicester City host a Chelsea team that have been stuttering badly on the road. Frank Lampard’s expensively assembled team is underperforming – can they trigger an upturn in fortunes with a win against the Foxes?

What we’re backing:

Chelsea were beaten in three of their last four away assignments, and the Blues failed to convince in a scrappy 1-0 win at 10-man Fulham last time out. A more confident Leicester team look ready to pounce.

Betting tip: Leicester City to Win @15/8

Wednesday – Juventus vs Napoli

20:00, BT Sport 2

Why we’re watching:

Silverware is on the line in Reggio nell’Emilia on Wednesday evening when Juventus and Napoli battle it out for the Italian Super Cup in what should prove an enthralling contest.

What we’re backing:

Both teams to score backers were rewarded in four of the last five encounters between Juventus and Napoli, and with both defences struggling for clean sheets of late, we should see chances produced again.

Betting tip: Both Teams to Score @4/7

COMPLIANT - Antoine Griezmann in Champions League action for Barcelona

Thursday – Cornella vs Barcelona

20:00, Premier Sports 2

Why we’re watching:

Lower league minnows Cornella produced one of the Copa del Rey’s biggest shocks in years when they eliminated Atletico Madrid in the last round, and those in search of more football romanticism will want to see how the giant killers fare against Barcelona.

What we’re backing:

Cornella’s victory over Atletico sent shockwaves across Spain, though matching that heroic triumph should prove tough. The minnows lost at home to Barcelona’s B team in the league just before Christmas, and we expect the club’s more senior counterparts to be comfortable winners.

Betting tip: Over 2.5 Barcelona Team Goals @5/6

Friday – Borussia Mönchengladbach v Borussia Dortmund

19:30, BT Sport 2

Why we’re watching:

Two of the Bundesliga’s Champions League contestants face off in Gladbach on Friday evening, when Dortmund’s wonderkids pit their wits against Marco Rose’s exciting Fohlen.

What we’re backing:

We can’t look beyond goals for this one. Both teams have attacking talent to burn and we’re banking on there being plenty of excitement when they face off. The last 12 meetings between these clubs produced 3.41 goals per 90 minutes, and their latest scuffle has all the makings of another thriller.

Betting tip: Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score @4/5

COMPLIANT - Marseille manager Andre Villas Boas in the Champions League

Saturday – Monaco vs Marseille

20:00, BT Sport 1

Why we’re watching:

Two of the biggest names in French football lock horns in the Principality on Saturday evening, when 4th placed Monaco host Marseille in 6th in what could be a royal rumble at the Stade Louis II.

What we’re backing:

With four wins and tons of goals in their last five games, Monaco have been in blistering form of late, and with a frontline that boasts the talents of in-form pair Kevin Volland and Wissam Ben-Yedder, Les Monégasques have the firepower to avenge their 2-1 loss at Marseille in December.

Betting tip: Monaco to Win @17/20

Sunday – Manchester United vs Liverpool

17:00, BBC One

Why we’re watching:

Any clash between traditional rivals Manchester United and Liverpool is worth tuning in for, and after round one of their heavyweight double-header finished all square at Anfield in the Premier League, supporters will be praying for a more incisive contest in their FA Cup bout at Old Trafford.

What we’re backing:

United and Liverpool’s 0-0 stalemate at Anfield last Sunday was low on clear cut opportunities, though it did follow the pattern of big games this season involving the Red Devils where little ground was given. With tension expected to be high in this weekend’s rematch, fear of losing could prove a more powerful force than the will to win again.

Betting tip: Under 2.5 Goals @1/1
