Weekend Games Preview: Barcelona, Bayern Tipped for Wins

Bundesliga: Bayern vs Wolfsburg

Recent head to heads
A Robert Lewandowski double in December helped Bayern overcome the loss of an early goal to Wolfsburg on their last game as the Bavarians triumphed 2-1.
In fact, Bayern have won the last six games between the sides and haven’t lost in the last 14 meetings. Wolfsburg’s last win was in 2015.

Players to watch
Wout Weghorst has hit 37 per cent of Wolfsburg’s 49 league goals this season with 18 of them. He’s their obvious danger and will have his backers at 17/10 to score anytime with SBK.

Without Lewandowski, Bayern have used Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who scored in both legs against PSG. He’s far from prolific, but is a huge threat in the air and is 8/5 to score in the Volkswagen Arena.

Anything else catch the eye?
Bayern will be stung by that European loss and can’t afford to slip up here with RB Leipzig only five points behind them in second place. Last week’s home draw against Union Berlin was the first time in six games they hadn’t won in the league and they are begging to be backed just to win, especially with their outstanding record against Wolfsburg. They are the best team in the league away from home too.

As always with Bayern, the win and both teams to score comes into play, especially considering they have conceded ten more goals than Wolfsburg this season.

FA Cup Final: Chelsea vs Man City

Recent head to head
This fixture has been pretty even of late, with the last 10 games producing six City wins, three Chelsea victories, and one draw. Guardiola’s side won 3-1 at Stamford Bridge in the last league meeting but it went all the way to penalties when these sides last faced off in a cup.

That came in the 2019 League Cup Final, with City winning 4-3 on penalties after Blues keeper Kepa infamously refused to be subbed for the shoot-out.

Players to watch
Both managers might make changes to freshen things up after those midweek European games but I’d still expect them to go with strong sides.

Christian Pulisic has impressed in the last few weeks and will relish returning to Wembley, where he scored in last season’s FA Cup Final.

Anything else catch the eye?
Chelsea’s success under Tuchel has been based on a rock-solid defence so I’d be surprised if this was a thriller. Under 2.5 goals a good option for accumulators. Betting against both teams to score could also pay off.

Copa del rey: Atl. Bilbao vs Barcelona

Head to head
Barcelona often come out on top in this fixture with 45 wins from 71 previous matches. Athletic Bilbao have claimed 12 wins while there have been 14 draws between both teams.

The Catalans have beaten Bilbao twice this season and triumphed 2-1 in the last meeting between both teams in January.

Players to watch
As always Barcelona will look to Lionel Messi to provide the spark in attack. The Argentine forward has scored four times against Athletic Bilbao already this season and is priced low by accumulators to score anytime.

Inaki Williams and Raul Garcia often carry the attacking threat for Athletic Bilbao and will be the ones to watch on Saturday.

Anything else catch the eye?
Matches involving Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona often produce goals, so it might be worth a punt backing both teams to score. Over 2.5 goals is worthy of consideration.

Barcelona could be backed to score in both halves while a win for the Catalans and over 2.5 goals could be worth a punt.
