Manchester City – Leicester City

Man City’s crushing attack against Leicester’s concrete defense. In the current Premier League, the Citizens scored the most goals (47) and are 3rd in the standings. At the same time, the Foxes have conceded the fewest goals (11) and come second. However, both teams are quite far behind the leading Liverpool – Man City by 14 points and Leicester by 10.

Manchester City scores an average of 2.76 goals per game – the most in the current English Championship. And yet since November, the performance of Guardiola’s team has been mediocre, with the team scoring 4 wins against 2 losses and 1 draw. In light of that, defeating Arsenal 0:3 in the last round surely served as quite an encouragement to the Citizens. The chances of the Citizens leading in the current Premier League look faint. The club is mostly betting on fighting in the Champions League playoff due to begin in February 2020.

Leicester concedes an average of 0.64 goals per match and is overall doing well in the current tournament. A draw against Norwich in the last round (1: 1) became the first defeat after 8 wins in a row. Team leader Jamie Vardy is topping the list of England Championship Scorers, having scored 16 goals, while his opponents, Tammy Abraham from Chelsea and Pierre Aubameyang from Arsenal, scored 11 each.

The last time Leicester won playing against Man City was during an away match in February 2016. The last match between the teams was in Manchester and ended with the Citizens winning 1:0 with a minimal difference. All that makes the upcoming match unpredictable and highly recommended for watching!

Real Madrid – Athletic Bilbao

The most decorated Spanish club is hosting the legendary Basque lions on its field. Real Madrid is 2nd in the standings of the Primera, having caught up by points with the leading Barcelona and challenging its champion title. Athletic is seventh, that already being an achievement all by itself considering the results of previous seasons. The opponents have an equal number of goals conceded (12), but a significant difference in goals scored – 33 for Madrid vs. 19 for Bilbao.

Real has two goals – winning in the Primera and succeeding in the Champions League playoffs, which will begin with a match agiansth Manchester City in 1/16. Los Blancos are getting to this game against Athletic following 3 consecutive tough matches, including an El Clásico. Obviously, Real is a tad worn out, which was obvious in their recent match against Valencia when the Blancos managed to even the score to a draw (1:1) only in the 90th minute. And if the Bats, ranked 8th, managed to give so much trouble to Zidane’s team, so can Athletic.

This, by the way, is supported by the history of the encounters between the Basque team and the Galácticos – 4 out of 3 latest matches ended in a draw. In addition, Bilbao’s goal is not an easy target, as indicated by just 12 goals conceded in the Primera – only Atlético Madrid has conceded fewer (10). Coach Gaizka Garitano built a strong and well-coordinated team that could successfully compete with the grand team, if not for victory, then at least for points.

The guests could score against the hosting team, especially given the fact Real Madrid often allows opponents to attack, confident that, even if they should get a goal scored, they will be sure to come from behind. In 7 previous matches between Madrid and Bilbao, since 2016, both teams scored 5 times. Both to Score – Yes with excellent odds of 1.94 in 22Bet line.
