After a week off for the international break, the top leagues in European soccer continue this week and some fantastic matchups headline the slate! We are back this weekend with a wraparound of some of the key matchups across the Bundesliga, La Liga and Ligue 1 including betting tips below.
French Ligue 1 Matchday 10
Nice vs Paris Saint Germain (Saturday 5.45am AEDT)
Nice have had a pretty impressive start to the season so far, maintaining a 4-1-4 record through the opening nine rounds, however, they are winless over their last three games and will have arguably their toughest test of the season when they face PSG on Saturday morning.
Paris Saint Germain currently sit on top of the Ligue 1 table with a 7-0-2 record. They have allowed just four goals through the opening nine rounds and have scored a league high 17. Led by star forward Neymar, who has slotted four goals this season, the PSG attack looks formidable.
Nice have won just one of their last 13 games against Paris Saint Germain in Ligue 1, including two draws and 10 losses. PSG have kept seven clean sheets through nine games so far this season, more than any other side. We think a win to nil is great value here.
Spanish La Liga Matchday 9
Atletico Madrid vs Valencia (Sunday 1am AEDT)
The game of the round in the La Liga sees the 3rd placed Atletico Madrid taking on 8th placed Valencia. Madrid have a 4-3-1 record through their opening eight games and have allowed just four goals, the fewest of any team in the La Liga.
On the contrary, Valencia have allowed 12 goals, which is the third most in the league and have a 3-3-2 record. They haven’t recorded a win over a top side in the La Liga to date, but won against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge just a few weeks ago.
Atletico Madrid are unbeaten in their last nine matches against Valencia, dating back to 2014. In fact, they have never lost to Valencia at home under current coach Diego Simeone. Atletico Madrid are great value at home, where they are yet to lose this year.
German Bundesliga Matchday 8
Borussia Dortmund vs Borussia Monchengladbach (Sunday 3.30am AEDT)
Monchengladbach currently sit atop the German Bundesliga table with a 5-1-1 record through the opening seven rounds. They are, however, yet to face one of the premier clubs in the Bundesliga, and they’ll get their toughest test to date as they face Dortmund this week.
Borussia Dortmund have lost just one game through the first seven rounds but sit in 8th place on the Bundesliga table. They have a 3-3-1 record and boast wins over the likes of FC Koln and Bayer Leverkusen.
Dortmund open as heavy favourites at home but we think there is some great value about the top placed side in the competition. Monchengladbach are 3-0-0 on the road so far this season and have allowed just one goal in those three games. Back them with the double chance here.
