Live on Skysports 1: Sun 18.00 & 20.00: Barca can’t stop scoring and Stan James’ 1/9 favs can get amongst the goals against Malaga.
Barcelona’s last few league results have seen them win 5-0, 4-0, 2-1, 5-1, 5-0, 3-0, 5-0, 8-0, only that narrow 2-1 victory over Levante early this month not going down as a hammering. It’s hard not to fear for Malaga then as they head to the Camp Nou and the magnitude of the task facing the Andalusians is illustrated by their odds of 25/1 with to become only the second team to beat Barca this season.
Naturally, Pep Guardiola’s side are overwhelming favourites at 1/9 with Stan James to register yet another triumph and given their recent results, there seems a strong chance the rampant Catalans outfit will get amongst the goals again.
Coral rate them at 6/5 to bag at least four while the same firm make Barca 4/5 to prevail by at least three clear goals. Bolder punters can tackle William Hill’s 2/1 for the hosts to get on the scoresheet in the opening quarter of an hour.
Real Madrid should also find the net with relative ease as they head to Almeria. The midweek Copa del Rey clean sheet against Deportivo notwithstanding, the hosts have been leaking plenty of goals, shipping 15 in the five league and cup games before Thursday’s clash.
Little wonder then that Jose Mourinho’s men are 2/7 (888Sport) to collect a maximum haul at the Mediterraneo Stadium, where the contest is 5/4 with William Hill to produce more than 3.5 goals and bet365 quote the prolific visitors at 10/11 to strike at least three times.
