SUPER SUNDAY football is back in February, and hope to build on some decent form from football yesterday.
Italian Serie A
Fiorentina v Torino – Both Teams to Score @ 1.80 (Bet365) – 2.5 points
This will be an exciting encounter between 2 teams who have put on a 6 game unbeaten run and have played late on Thursday night in the Europa League; and that fatigue might play a factor tonight.
Fiorentina have managed to continue a consistent form to keep them within the hunt of the top 3 in the Serie A. They have managed to keep the goals flowing despite not having a reputed striker. They have relied on the likes of Babacar, Rodríguez, Gomez and Diamanti to score majority of their goals. Babacar in particular has been the inspiration for them. They also had Cuadrado who had been recently moved out to Chelsea, who had been largely instrumental in their creativity and goal scoring from the wings. They have been pretty average defensively with their opponents scoring in 8 out of their 9 away games.
Torino have been sitting in the top half of the table for most of the season; but with a thinner squad to battle on all fronts, but managed some good form winning 4 out of their last 6 games coming into this game. Quagliarella has been the main scorer for them, while others have chipped in with efforts as and when possible. While their scoring has been slightly inconsistent, they have managed to find the net in their last 8 straight games, while also conceding in 7 out of those 8 games as well; as their defense hasn’t held out against some better offenses.
Both teams to score is the likely pick for this game, as both teams will look for a win tonight and 4 out of the last 5 games between the 2 teams, and I expect another game to have similar goal scoring form tonight.
Spain La Liga
Real Madrid Over 2.5 goals v Elche @ 1.80 (Bet365) – 2.5 points
Real Madrid HT to beat Elche @ 1.85 (Bet365) – 2.5 points (#INPLAYMAGIC)
Real Madrid are in good form coming into this game against Elche, knowing that victory tonight will extend their lead to 4 points ahead of chief rivals Barcelona who lost yesterday to Malaga at home. Despite a lot of injuries to players like Ramos, Khedira, Coentrao, James, Modric; they still have a lot of squad depth to contend with any team especially when you have a crazy attacking front 3 of Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema.
Real Madrid have failed to score more than 2 goals since February has started, and today could be the opportunity to open the floodgates against an Elche side who conceded 5 and 3 goals in the last 2 games against Real Madrid. Elche entertained Barcelona a few weeks ago and got smashed 6-0 in that encounter, showing that their defense hasn’t been the best, and its no surprise thats why you see Elche sitting in 17th spot, just 4 points above the relegation zone.
Real Madrid to smash in 3 goals tonight, and the price on offer, looks like a great opportunity for Madrid to get back into form especially with a good 1 week off after this game.
