Five European football bets for this weekend: January 16-17

Coral take a look at all the best bets from across Europe as another weekend of fantastic continental football descends on us.

Back a draw between Valencia and Rayo Vallecano

The last three meetings between these two clubs have ended in draws, the most recent earlier this season finishing goalless. At 14/5 with Coral for a draw, these are good odds with neither side seemingly able to carve out an advantage, though this match generally guarantees goals.

Spain Soccer La Liga

Dybala anytime scorer

With Juventus set to travel to Udinese, Coral suggest backing attacker Paulo Dybala at odds of 11/8 to net anytime. The 22-year-old has dispatched three in his last five matches for the Turin titans, is in fantastic form and is linking up well with his teammates.

Messi to score two or more

Barcelona welcome Athletic Bilbao to the Nou Camp, with Argentine attacker Lionel Messi in superb form. At 5/2 to score two or more, this is seen as an entirely realistic possibility. Having achieved this accomplishment in his last two games, Messi is currently at his majestic best and Bilbao’s backline is certainly breachable.

Spain Spanish Super Cup

Griezmann first scorer

Atletico head to Las Palmas in La Liga as Diego Simeone’s side seek to stay in top spot. Fantastic French forward Antoine Griezmann struck the first goal last time out and was also the only scorer in Atleti’s 1-0 win earlier in the season, so at 10/3 to break the deadlock, this is seen as too tempting to turn down.

Over 2.5 goals in Bordeaux battle

As Bordeaux prepare to welcome Lille, fans have reason to not be confident of a thriller. This fixture has very rarely yielded more than three goals and punters should be confident of the 8/5 odds on there being over 2.5 goals in this match.
