Mythbusters: 4 favourites to back against on Sunday
These teams represent good value to defy the odds this weekend - and if you fancy them all, back the 27/1 acca.
Roma not to beat Hellas Verona –
Roma’s disastrous run of form continued with a home defeat to Sampdoria on Sunday, and life is unlikely to get much easier at Hellas Verona on Sunday.
Eusebio Di Francesco’s side are without a win in seven matches, and have not won away from home since 5 November.
So Verona, who spectacularly beat Fiorentina 4-1 last time out, should sense an opportunity.
Feyenoord not to beat VVV Venlo –
Feyenoord have only won three of their last 11 away matches, so are a good bet to drop points at VVV Venlo on Saturday.
The hosts have impressed this season, winning three of their last four games to move into the top half of the Eredivisie.
And having secured a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture in November, an upset is on the cards.
Liverpool not to beat Tottenham –
In a match between two evenly-matched teams, this is a tempting price for Tottenham to take at least a point.
Liverpool have failed to win seven of their last 15 home matches, including a catastrophic defensive display that saw them knocked out of the FA Cup by West Brom.
Their visitors can also take confidence from the manner in which they dismantled Sunday’s hosts 4-1 in the reverse fixture.
Atletico Madrid not to beat Valencia –
Atletico Madrid were faltering before last weekend’s 3-0 victory over La Liga’s whipping boys Las Palmas, and could run into trouble against Valencia on Sunday.
Diego Simeone’s side failed to win any of their previous three matches, two of which were at home, and were also held to a 0-0 draw in the reverse fixture.
The visitors have already earned one point in Madrid this season, drawing 2-2 with Real in August, and can add to that tally on Sunday.
