European football betting tips: Bayern favourites for trip to Dortmund
Preview and odds for Saturday’s matches
The European leagues are in full flow and we look at a selection of matches from Germany, Spain and Italy in our European football betting tips.
Borussia Dortmund v Bayern Munich
German football’s two most decorated clubs clash in the Bundesliga’s most famous fixture for the 130th edition of ‘Der Klassiker’.
There is plenty riding on this crunch clash with one point separating the rivals at the top of the Bundesliga table.
It is Bayern who hold that slender advantage and they are the 5/6 favourites here to make it seven straight victories over Dortmund.
Robert Lewandowski helped himself to a brace when Bayern took home the three points with a 3-1 victory in this fixture at the Signal Iduna Park last season.
Dortmund starlet Erling Haaland will be eager to match Lewandowski shot for shot and over 3.5 goals, Lewandowski to have two or more shots on target and Haaland to have at least one shot on target is an interesting #YourCall special at 17/10.
Real Sociedad v Real Madrid
Real Madrid have cemented themselves as the team to beat in La Liga and are 6/5 to be successful in this tricky away trip to San Sebastian.
The hosts are unbeaten at home this season and their defeat to Espanyol last time was their first La Liga loss since an opening-day defeat to Barcelona.
Imanol Alguacil’s side are currently third in the standings and could represent plenty of value at 9/4, while they have drawn five of their last seven home fixtures in all competition and it is 12/5 for this one to finish honours even.
They are also the joint second-best defence in the league which could help them keep the division’s highest scorers quiet and it is 5/1 for them to pinch a victory to nil.
Los Blancos have scored at least two when winning six of their last seven in all competition and it is 21/20 for that trend to continue, while both teams to score has landed in five of those seven and that can be found at 4/6 in European football betting tips.
Napoli v Atalanta
We head to Italy for the last of our European football betting tips for Saturday as the Serie A leaders host Gian Piero Gasperini’s enterprising Atalanta.
Napoli are looking to win the race for the Scudetto for the first time since the halcyon days when Diego Maradona graced the stadium that now bares his name and they hold a slender advantage over the chasing pack.
Atalanta are five points behind in fourth and the Bergamo-based outfit are looking to finish in the top three for the fourth successive season.
