Chelsea v Swansea

media

I know, I know. But just hear me out before disregarding this one.

Swansea’s performances at the biggest sides in the league have been impressive since Paul Clement took over.

They beat Liverpool in January, before only being denied a point at the Etihad Stadium by a very late Gabriel Jesus goal earlier this month.

And in winning three of their last four games, they have moved four points clear of the relegation zone.

Chelsea, meanwhile, only edged past Hull at Stamford Bridge a month ago, and were held by Burnley in their last league game.

Antonio Conte’s best goalscorer, Diego Costa, has only scored three goals in his last eight games, too.

The hosts should obviously emerge victorious here, but the Swans are decent value at to win.

The draw, meanwhile, is available at .

Charlton v Bury

Charlton’s return to League One has far from gone to plan.

The Addicks have not won any of their five games in February, and lost at home to Oxford on Tuesday.

And with Saturday’s favourites in such poor form, Bury must feel that they have a decent chance of overturning the odds.

The Shakers have lost just one of their last seven matches, scoring 14 goals, and have clambered out of the relegation zone.

They also beat Charlton on the opening day of the season.

An away win, therefore, feels possible at , while a draw looks good value at .  

Marseille v PSG

PSG remain second in Ligue 1, and will not relish a difficult trip to Marseilles on Sunday evening.

The hosts have won all of their last four home matches, and have only lost once at the Stade Velodrome all season.

That they held the visitors to a draw earlier in the season proves their ability to compete with the league’s best sides, too.

Unai Emery’s team, meanwhile, could only draw with Toulouse last week, and have been vulnerable on the road, suffering defeats at Guingamp and Montpellier since the start of December.

Another stalemate looks a particularly good bet in this one at , while a home win is out at

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona

This is perhaps not the most outlandish shout, but there is plenty of value in backing against favourites Barcelona here.

Luis Enrique’s side are struggling, losing 4-0 at PSG in the Champions League last week, before only edging past Leganes at the Nou Camp in their last game.

They have been largely reliant on the individual form of Lionel Messi so far this season, and won only five of their last 11 away games.

Atletico, meanwhile, have not enjoyed their best league campaign, but have shown signs of recovery recently.

Diego Simeone’s side have not lost any of their last 10 league games, winning eight, and have scored nine goals in their last three La Liga encounters.

They are available at to record another victory, with the draw available at .
