SNF: 5 European football tips for Saturday evening's matches
Fund your big night out with this accumulator, featuring football tips from Serie A, La Liga, the Championship and Eredivisie.
Juventus to beat Empoli to nil (17:00)
Juventus beat Atletico Madrid 3-0 in their last home match and should ease to another victory in Turin on Saturday night.
The Bianconeri have won 12 and drawn two of their 14 home games in Serie A this season, keeping clean sheets in five of their last seven victories.
Empoli are yet to win away from home this season and have failed to score in three of their last five on the road.
Villarreal to beat Celta Vigo (17:30)
Villarreal come into this on a four-match winning streak in all competitions and are a great price to make it five from five this weekend.
That run includes their first back-to-back league victories of the season against Rayo Vallecano and Levante, which has opened a four-point gap between themselves and the bottom three.
Celta Vigo have earned just one point in their last six matches in La Liga and currently occupy the first relegation spot. Expect them to be three points further from safety after this.
Norwich to beat Middlesbrough (17:30)
Norwich have won six consecutive matches, so look a nice odds-against bet to overcome Middlesbrough at the Riverside.
The Canaries have scored at least twice in five of those victories, racking up nine goals in their last three games on the road.
Boro have lost their last two home games, so are unlikely to turn things around against the Championship leaders.
AZ Alkmaar to beat Groningen (19:45)
AZ Alkmaar won 3-1 when these sides met in Groningen in September, and should complete the double at home on Saturday night.
John van den Brom’s side have won seven of their last nine Eredivisie games, losing just once during that run, and are on a six-match winning streak at home.
Groningen haven’t been great away from home this season, winning just one of their last seven on the road.
Alaves to win or draw v Atletico Madrid (19:45)
Atletico lost 2-0 at Athletic Bilbao a fortnight ago, so it makes sense to back them to slip up again at Alaves.
Diego Simeone’s side have won just seven of their 20 away matches in all competitions this season, and only two of 11 against teams outside the relegation zone in La Liga.
Alaves have only lost one of 14 home matches this term, beating Real Madrid and Sevilla and taking a point off Valencia. They have no reason to fear Atletico.
