Barcelona to beat Real Madrid without Lionel Messi? Man City to see off Spurs?
A small midweek profit for the column that would have been far healthier has PSG not fluffed their lines at home to Napoli. Another huge weekend of action for punters coming up including El Clasico and Tottenham's clash with Manchester City.
Running total: -£19.09
Manchester City have won 10 of their last 15 games against Tottenham, and look the logical choice at 7/10 when the teams meet at Wembley on Monday evening. City boss Pep Guardiola said his side played the best football of his time in charge as they swept aside Shakhtar Donetsk in midweek, and they could be out to make a statement here. The two sides last met in April when City produced another scintillating display to claim a 3-1 win at Wembley and it's worth noting that Guardiola has lost just two of his last 13 matches when up against Mauricio Pochettino.
Selection: £5 on Manchester City to win at 7/10 with bet365.
The Tasty Treble
Southampton (11/10) and Newcastle are struggling at the wrong end of the table but Saints look a solid bet to claim a valuable three points at St Mary's. Danny Ings will be out to recapture his early season form against a Newcastle side who have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven matches. Elsewhere, Watford (3/4) should be too good for a Huddersfield side who are averaging less than 0.5 goals a game so far. Finally, on Sunday both teams to score looks a lock at 8/13 when Crystal Palace face Arsenal. The Gunners are on a 10-game winning streak but have not kept many clean sheets during that sequence.
Selection: £3 on the treble at 4.93/1 with bet365.

The First Goal Flutter
Eden Hazard is Chelsea's top scorer with eight goals this season and after sitting out their latest Europa League clash with a back problem, should be OK for Sunday's trip to Burnley. The classy Belgian has been a revelation under Maurizio Sarri and is worth a punt at 100/30 to score first. If he doesn't play, you get your money back.
The Euro wager
Barcelona are even money to beat Real Madrid at Camp Nou on Sunday and, in light of Madrid's recent troubles, that looks a tasty price. Los Blancos have looked lost at times under Julen Lopetegui, who only replaced Zinedine Zidane in June but already finds himself under huge pressure after winning just six of his 13 games in charge. The Blaugrana proved they can cope without injured talisman Lionel Messi by beating Inter Milan on Wednesday and look good things to record another win against their rivals.
Selection: £6 on Barcelona to win at evens with bet365.
The Wildcard Tip
Manchester United are a 4/6 chance to beat Everton on Sunday but may not have things all their own way against the Blues, who have won their last three in the league. A 1-1 draw at Old Trafford could be the bet at 13/2 with bet365.
