The Champions League takes a break this week but there’s lots of exciting games in the FA Cup, DFB Pokal and the Copa del Rey. Check out our Top 5 Bets for the Week. Bet on these games here.
Schalke 04 v Bayern Munich – Bayern Over 2.5 Goals – 1.70
Bayern Munich travel to face Schalke 04 in the DFB Cup quarter-final looking to continue their defence of the title. Bayern have scored three or more goals in four of their last five matches in all competitions. Hansi Flick’s side have also scored at least three goals in five of their last seven games against Schalke. The hosts have also conceded three or more in their last two matches in the Bundesliga.
Tottenham Hotspur v Norwich City – Tottenham Win – 1.60
Tottenham are looking to bounce back when they welcome Norwich City in the FA Cup 5th Round. Jose Mourinho’s side aren’t in their best form at the moment but neither are the Canaries. Despite registering a massive win last weekend, Norwich have lost three of their last five away games in all competitions, while Spurs have won three of their last five at home. Furthermore, the hosts have beaten the Canaries in three of their last four meetings. Mourinho’s side have a good home record against bottom-half teams, winning six out of eight against such opposition, including each of their last three.
Eintracht Frankfurt v Werder Bremen – Frankfurt Win – 1.65
2018 DFB Cup finalists Frankfurt are making another attempt to win the title they missed out on two seasons ago. The hosts have won four of their last five matches while Werder Bremen have lost four of their last five games in all competitions. The visitors are also in the relegation zone in the Bundesliga. Eintracht have also knocked Bremen out of the DFB Cup on three previous occasions.
Granada v Athletic Bilbao – Under 2.5 Goals – 1.55
With Spain’s top three out of the Copa del Rey, Granada and Bilbao are looking to go all the way when they meet in the first leg of the semi-final. Three of both Granada and Bilbao’s last five games in all competitions have seen two or fewer goals. Four of the last six meetings between these two have seen Under 2.5 Goals. Bilbao have the third best defence in La Liga and this should be a tightly contested affair.
Olympique Marseille v Amiens – Marseille Win – 1.60
Marseille’s Ligue 1 title challenge suffered a blow when they suffered a 3-1 home defeat to Nantes who ended their 14-game unbeaten run in the league. However, they did return to winning ways last weekend and sit comfortably in second place, eight points clear of third-placed Rennes. They host relegation-threatened Amiens on Friday night looking to solidify second spot. The hosts have won four of their last five league games while the visitors have won one match since November and none since December. Marseille have also won four of the last five games against Amiens.
