Live on Skysports 1: Sat from 18.00: Barcelona are 6/4 () to smash Santander while Granada can draw with Atletico.
Racing Santander, 33/1 with Boylesports, are in trouble as they head to Nou Camp; just one goal in five outings is not going to win them any games and that’s the way it will continue against Barcelona.
Guardiola’s men are 1/12 (Totesport) to win and we could be seeing flashbacks of the 8-0 Osasuna mauling; have 6/4 about Barca winning by four goals or greater. Santander just don’t seem able to score and like rabbits in headlights will probably fail to react here; Paddy Power going 4/6 about a win to nil for Barcelona.
First in the day, Real Madrid entertain Real Betis as just 1/7 favs (Betfred). Betis’ strong start has given way to consecutive 1-0 defeats and they do not look likely to snatch all 3 points here either, something price up at 18/1.
However, Betis do tend to net and Real aren’t watertight so Stan James’ 19/20 for both teams to score is a good way to go while Betis are 7/4 with Ladbrokes to win with a 2 goal start, allowing them to lose by one and still win on the handicap.
The 21.00 games sees struggling Granada 11/4 with Betdaq to beat Atletico Madrid (6/5 to win with Blue Square). Atletico’s season was rocked slightly by a mauling at Barcelona and coupled with the fact Granada have kept it quite tight at the back for four games now, the draw is our bet at 5/2 with William Hill.
