Our expert tipster has taken a look at a number of football betting tips and has put together his top selections from around the top European Leagues ahead of a busy weekend of games.
European Football Preview
The Copa Del Rey Final is the pick of the games in this week’s European Football action, but there are a lot of other intriguing fixtures. Barcelona face Athletic Club Bilbao in a true David vs Goliath final, where the underdogs know all about upsetting the odds. The Basque club have quite the haul of trophies in this particular tournament, but they haven’t won it since 1984, so there will be no shortage of motivation for this one. The Cup Final will take place in front of an empty stadium at Estadio La Cartuja in Sevilla.
Elsewhere, Atletico Madrid will look to try to consolidate their place at the top of the table when they play bottom side Eibar. Real Madrid face 15th-place Getafe in a game which could see them take the lead in the La Liga title race should their neighbours slip up.
Elsewhere, the hotly contested Ligue 1 title battle continues with Lille hosting Montpellier, and second-place PSG looking to build on their Champions League progression by getting back to winning ways against Saint Etienne.
And in Germany, first play third when Bayern Munich travel to Wolfsburg, while in Italy Juventus and Atalanta, two teams vying to catch second place AC Milan, will play in Gewiss Stadium

Copa Del Rey Final; Barcelona vs Athletic Club Betting Odds
The bookmakers seem to be decided on who is taking home the Copa Del Rey this Saturday. Athletic Bilbao are gigantic 5/1 underdogs, with the game going to extra-time after a draw seemingly a more likely outcome at 17/5. Barcelona are 20/39 favourites, and are probably good value for it, but there’s always the chance of an upset in the cup final. We quite like the Barcelona Win to Zero bet that is priced at 33/20, unfortunately for the plucky Basque side.
Lille vs Montpellier Betting Odds
There is no room for Lille error in the Ligue 1 title race, and they’ll know that better than anybody. PSG are 4/13 favourites to beat Saint Etienne, so Lille will need to live up to their 5/8 tag this weekend. A draw is marketed at 59/20 and an away win is 19/4.
Bayern Munich vs Wolfsburg Betting Odds
Maximillian Philipp gave Bayern Munich a nice fright the last time these sides squared off back in December. However, the Bundesliga champions elect came back through Robert Lewandowski, who scored within five minutes either side of the break to give them the win. Munich are favourites this weekend too at a price of 10/11, while Wolfsburg are 57/20. The draw is 14/5 and actually looks like a worthwhile bet.
Atalanta vs Juventus Betting Odds
