The Perfect 10 – 118/1 acca
Rangers vs St. Mirren (Scottish Premiership)
Betting tip: Rangers to win
With an incredible 15 wins from 15 Scottish Premiership games, Rangers have a 100% record at Ibrox, and the champions elect are huge favourites to maintain their perfect run against St. Mirren. The Saints have lost on each of their last eight visits to the blue half of Glasgow and they look set for another afternoon of struggle there on Saturday.
Besiktas vs Gaziantep (Turkish Super Lig)
Betting tip: Besiktas to win
Besiktas are locked in a four-way tussle for the title, and having won ten of their last 11 home games, they look ready to claim three more points against Gaziantep. The hosts have kept seven clean sheets in their last nine on their own patch, while Gaziantep have failed to notch in three of their last four fixtures.
Harteberg vs Admira (Austrian Bundesliga)
Betting tip: Harteberg to win
The Bundesliga’s bottom club Admira travel to take on a Harteberg side that his recently hit a rich vein of form. The hosts have won three of their last four matches and beat high flying LASK Linz away last time out, and with confidence in the camp high, another victory looks in the offing.
Leganes vs CD Castellon (Spanish Segunda Division)
Betting tip: Leganes to win
Leganes have the best home record in the Segunda Division this season and they look favourites to win their 13th game in 15 home fixtures against Castellon. The visitors are languishing in second last place and were beaten in four of their last five league matches.
Bayern Munich vs Dortmund (German Bundesliga)
Betting tip: Bayern Munich to win
Der Klassiker is always billed as the Bundesliga’s biggest game, but Bayern have been routinely dishing out beatings to Dortmund in recent seasons. Bayern rattled six, five and four goals past their rivals on each of Dortmund’s last three trips to Munich in the league, and the champions could teach their challengers a lesson again on Saturday.
Heerenveen vs ADO Den Haag (Dutch Eredivisie)
Betting tip: Heerenveen to win
Heerenveen’s cup defeat to Ajax was their first defeat in five home matches and recent victories on their own patch included two wins against a strong Feyenoord outfit. ADO meanwhile, have won only once in 19 games in all competitions and they were toppled in three of their last four on the road.
Servette vs Basel (Swiss Super League)
Betting tip: Servette to win
Fresh from successive wins over Zurich and St. Gallen, Servette have built confidence ahead of their meeting with an out of sorts Basel team. The division’s second placed team are without a win in their last five attempts and they haven’t won on any of their last three trips to Servette.
Antwerp vs KV Kortrijk (Belgian First Division A)
Betting tip: Antwerp to win
Despite a couple of recent hiccups, second place Antwerp have been enjoying a superb 2020/21 campaign, and having won four of their last five meetings with Kortrijk, they are worth backing to repeat the trick. Kortrijk haven’t won at Antwerp since 2008, and that record isn’t expected to improve on Saturday.
Juventus vs Lazio (Italian Serie A)
Betting tip: Juventus to win
With six straight home wins in Serie A, Juventus have looked back to their best in Turin, while Lazio’s progress has hit a wall. The Biancocelesti were beaten in three of their last four games, and their defeat to lowly Bologna last time out was a real confidence-shattering result. Expect the Old Lady to dominate here.
Osasuna vs Barcelona (La Liga)
Betting tip: Barcelona to win
Barcelona’s players will have a spring in their step following their superb cup triumph over Sevilla in midweek, and Ronal Koeman’s troops can reignite their La Liga title bid with a follow-up victory at Osasuna. Barca thumped Osasuna 4-0 in November and they can complete the double over their opponents on Saturday.
