5 picks for Wednesday's European fixtures
We've got your midweek five-fold sorted, with these tips from the Coppa Italia, La Liga and Scottish Premiership.
Juventus to beat Atalanta –
Juventus have won 14 of their 18 matches in all competitions at the Allianz Stadium this season, losing just one.
Max Allegri’s side have also won 14 games in their current 17-match unbeaten run and have kept seven clean sheets out of eight.
Atalanta lost 3-2 at Dortmund in their last away game and were only able to draw with fourth-bottom Crotone before that.
Valencia to beat Athletic Bilbao –
Valencia’s 2-1 victory over Real Sociedad at the weekend was their third consecutive league win.
Marcelino’s side have the second-best home record in La Liga and have won five of their last seven at the Mestalla, losing only to Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Bilbao lost 2-0 at Atletico Madrid in their last away match and have won just one of their last five on the road.
Atletico Madrid to beat Leganes –
Atletico Madrid hammered Sevilla 5-2 away from home on Sunday to record their seventh successive win in all competitions.
Atleti have won 10 of their last 12 at the Wanda Metropolitano and, along with Barcelona, are one of just two sides in La Liga with an unbeaten home record.
Leganes haven’t won in seven and could only draw at home to Las Palmas, La Liga’s second-worst travelling side, last time out.
Aberdeen to beat Motherwell –
Aberdeen’s 2-0 defeat at home to Celtic was their second in a row, but they had won their previous four.
The Dons have already won at Fir Park this season after beating Motherwell 1-0 back in September.
They should expect another three points this time around, given that Well have managed just three victories in their last 15 league games.
Eibar to beat Villarreal –
Consecutive defeats to in-form Celta Vigo and Barcelona shouldn’t dissuade you from backing Eibar on Wednesday.
Los Armeros have won five and lost just two of their last nine home games, with those defeats coming against Atletico Madrid in January and Barcelona a fortnight ago.
Villarreal won 1-0 at home to Getafe last weekend, but had lost four of their previous five and are without an away win in three.
