Daily Tips – Easy does it for Villarreal


Villarreal beat Atletico Madrid in their last home outing and shouldn’t have any problems against Athletic Bilbao.

This season has been far from plain sailing for El Submarino Amarillo but a win tonight will see them jump back up to fifth in the table.

Javi Calleja’s men have won four of their last six at home and with their issues usually coming against teams who sit deep, the usually expansive Athletic are unlikely to trouble them.

Los Leones are winless in six on the road in La Liga and have not scored in their last four away from San Mames.

Another defeat beckons for Jose Ziganda’s men, with that outcome 10/13 but considering Bilbao’s recent scoring woes, I cannot see any harm in looking for the home win to zero at 17/10.

Elsewhere and there should be plenty of goals in the Bundesliga clash between RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen.

Die Bullen currently sit a point ahead of Bayer in the race for a Champions League spots but Ralph Hasenhuttl has a decision to make regarding selection with the second leg of his side’s Europa League quarter-final looming.

The winner of this game will go fourth and with so much at stake, over 3.5 goals looks a good price at 7/4, while having played out a 2-2 draw back in November, I’m backing another share of the spoils at 51/20.
