Sunday Special with Real Madrid, Juventus and Monaco

| 23.03.2014

Coral offer an enhanced 5/1 on wins for Real Madrid against rivals Barcelona, Juventus away to bottom of the league Catania and Monaco at home to Lille.

Real Madrid v Barcelona
The two heavyweights of Spanish football meet in a game that will go a long way to determining this season’s La Liga champions.

A win for Real would move them seven points clear of their rivals which would surely be too much to overturn with just nine games remaining.

That wouldn’t mean that is all over though with Atletico Madrid still in the hunt, but with the experience and quality of the two sides it would seem likely that the winner comes from this fixture.

Real Madrid are yet to win any of their meetings with their two title rivals so far this season and are 5/4 to rectify this with a win at the last opportunity.

As ever the focus will be on both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi with the two 3/1 and 4/1 respectively to score first.

Ronaldo is 4/5 to score in his seventh consecutive game whilst another goal for Messi will make him the all-time leading scorer in this fixture. The Argentine is 11/10 to net.

Catania v Juventus
Top meets bottom in Serie A as Juventus travel to face Catania with an away win looking like a certainty.

Juve moved a step closer to playing a European Cup final at their home ground in May after knocking out Fiorentina in the Europa League but attention now switches back to the league.

The Italian giants currently sit 14 points clear of second placed Roma and heading to bottom club Catania the three points should be a formality.

The old lady have got the job done more often than not though this season having won 24 off their 28 league games and at 4/11, they should be included in your weekend’s multiples.

They have won their last two games 1-0 thanks to Andrea Pirlo free-kicks and the veteran international is 15/8 to net in three successive games.

Monaco v Lille
Second takes on third at the Stade Louis II stadium with Monaco welcoming Lille.

With just nine games left of the season, Monaco currently find themselves eight points behind leaders PSG and may have already accepted that this season isn’t going to be their year.

They also sit comfortable in second as they currently lead Lille by nine points but will want to ensure that gap increases to twelve with victory here.

Claudio Ranieri’s side are 5/6 to record their eleventh home league win of the season, which will also be their fifth from their last six games.

Lille’s league position is thanks mainly to their superb home form, having won 10 of their 15 matches and conceded just six goals.

On their travels though they have just enjoyed five successes and have struggled to find the back of the net with less than a goal a game record of 13 from 14.

Since gaining a starting place, Dimitar Berbatov has scored in his previous two outings. The former Premier League striker is evens to net and 4/1 to score the first goal of the game.
