Betting Tips: Will Barca Hold On To The No.1 Spot?

On Friday, May 5, West Ham United face off against Tottenham in an EPL encounter. A win for Spurs will see the club a point away from log leaders Chelsea, while a win for the Hammers will see them move into 14th spot.

Current La Liga leaders, Barcelona host Villarreal on Saturday, May 6. The Catalans will be seeking to secure all three points as second-placed Real Madrid are breathing down the necks of Luis Enrique’s team.

Chippa United battle out against Ajax Cape Town at the Sisa Dukashe stadium. The Chilli Boys are in danger as they are only two points away from the 16th position on the log standings.

Atletico face off against Eibar in a La Liga fixture on Saturday. The home side is third on the log standings, however, they are 10 points adrift of Barcelona and Real Madrid in first and second position, respectively. Their opponents, Eibar are 8th but have not been defeated in four encounters.

 

West Ham v Tottenham (Premier League)

League rankings: West Ham 15th & Tottenham 2nd

Useful facts: The Hammers’ terrible season in their new stadium, which has seen them win just one of their last six in front of their own fans, looks set to continue against this determined Spurs team that is on a nine-match winning streak and determined to lift the trophy this season. Furthermore, West Ham have won just two of their last six against Spurs, which makes anything but a win the likely outcome.

Barcelona v Villarreal (La Liga) 

League rankings: Barcelona 1st & Villarreal 5th

Useful facts: In recent history, Barcelona have held complete dominance in this game, with four wins and two draws coming from their last six against the Yellow Submarine and with the title race likely to be decided by the smallest of margins, they cannot afford to slip up. However, Villarreal have won five of their last six and will present a tough challenge for the defending champions.

Blessing Moyo: Draw

 

Chippa Utd v Ajax Cape Town (Absa Premiership)

League rankings: Chippa 13th & Ajax 10th

Useful facts: Chippa are on the worst run of form compared to any team in the league with no wins, three draws and five losses from their last eight league games, while Ajax have won only twice in that timeframe. With the Chilli Boys having won only one of their last seven league encounters against Ajax, it looks like they may have a serious relegation battle on their hands.

Blessing Moyo: Chippa

 

Atletico Madrid v Eibar (La Liga)

League rankings: Atletico 3rd & Eibar 8th

Useful facts: Atletico have won five of their last six against an overachieving Eibar side that is undefeated in four of their last six games in the league. However, Diego Simeone’s men have won eight of their last 10 La Liga games, keeping a clean sheet in five of their last seven. But, with a Champions League tie against Real Madrid on Tuesday, fatigue will have a role to play in this game.

Blessing Moyo: Atletico
