Saturday Night Fiver: 5 picks for the evening kick-offs
Fund your big night out with this five-fold accumulator, which features tips from the Premier League, Bundesliga, La Liga and Ligue 1.
Manchester City (-1) to beat Leicester (17:30) –
Manchester City have won their last five league games at the Etihad Stadium by at least two goals, and Leicester will struggle to end that sequence.
Pep Guardiola’s side have scored at least three goals in all of those matches, so this bet should come in even if the Foxes score.
Even if Riyad Mahrez does start, they are unlikely to manage more than one.
Bayern Munich to beat Schalke (17:30) –
Bayern have won 11 consecutive games in all competitions, and have won 13 out of 14 at home with one draw.
They’re a generous price to beat Schalke, who have won just two of their last nine league matches and lost two of their last four.
Bayern won 3-0 when these sides last met in September, and a similar result is likely on Saturday.
Eibar to beat Leganes (17:30) –
Eibar have been the second-best performing side in La Liga behind Barcelona for the last 11 games, having accrued 24 points.
They bounced back from a three-game winless run by hammering Sevilla 5-1 at home last time out.
Leganes lost 2-0 to Sevilla in the Copa del Rey in midweek and have now managed just two victories in nine in all competitions.
Bordeaux to beat Amiens (19:00) –
Bordeaux are resurgent under Gus Poyet, impressively beating strong travellers Lyon in their last home match.
And seeing off Amiens should be a far simpler task.
The visitors have lost all their last five away games, all of which were against sides sitting below their hosts.
Montpellier to beat Metz (19:00) –
Montpellier beat Angers 2-1 in their last league game to leapfrog Nice into sixth place.
That was their second victory in three games in Ligue 1, while their only defeat in six came against runaway leaders Paris Saint-Germain.
Metz have picked up recently, but were hammered 6-3 by Marseille last weekend and have lost two out of three.
