2.30pm Another excellent Saturday in Europe and made even better with 0% commission on BETDAQ Betting Exchange! Hopefully we can find some winners! We start the day with the German Champions Bayern Munich hosting Werder Bremen. Bayern finally got to the top of the table prior to the International break after a shock early loss to Hoffenheim had them a little behind. It’s hard to see anything but an easy Bundesliga win against this season, but they face the draw machine of Werder Bremen today!

Werder Bremen have drawn their last four in a row, but looking at xG they might get rolled over today. They aren’t creating a lot of chances, and while Bayern like to play an open game it’s hard to see how Werder Bremen live with Bayern. They have scored in their last six games, and we always get goals with Bayern but rather than back overs I like a play in the Correct Score market here. Any Other Home Win is 2.02 (Bayern to score four or more and win) and that looks good value.

The Ultra Says:
One point win Any Other Home Win Correct Score at 2.02 on BETDAQ Betting Exchange

3.15pm A fascinating game! It’s a shame it’s on at 3-15pm and not later tonight because it’s going to be a cracker for any football fan, but obviously we have Champions League next week so we start at this time. Real Madrid are having a bizarre season, even by their standards! Even with their shock results in the Champions League and losing to Cadiz, their 4-1 loss to Valencia before the International break took the biscuit. Valencia had been very poor in the run up to that game too.

This fixture is fascinating as they run into an in-form Villarreal side who have been playing some quality football under ex Arsenal manager Unai Emery. The ironic thing about Real, is they usually turn up for the big games. They beat Barcelona 3-1 in El Classico in between losing to Shakhtar and drawing with Gladbach. I still feel the best option here is the Real lay at 2.4. Villarreal have been excellent this season, and they are creating a host of chances. We’ll surely see a lot of goals in this one, and I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Villarreal outscored Real, but it’s the Real lay at 2.4 for me.

The Ultra Says:
Two points lay (liability) Real Madrid to beat Villarreal at 2.4 on BETDAQ Betting Exchange

8pm What a cracker to finish the day! I can’t wait to enjoy this fixture, and it’s all the better to see all football bets 0% commission today. I said a week or two ago that this season was Atletico Madrid’s best chance ever of lifting a La Liga title and I still stand by that. It’s not because they have improved a huge amount, but Barcelona and Real Madrid aren’t as good as they were. This is Atletico’s chance, and if they are going to take it they need to win these fixtures.

Barcelona haven’t been themselves this season, I think that’s clear for any football fan to see. They clearly have a lot of issues, in the dressing room and on the pitch. They scored five against Real Betis before the International break but they have been putting in some poor performances. They are dropping points against the likes of Alaves and Getafe – doing things they never did before. They are conceding a lot of chances, and this Atletico side ca take advantage of that. The Atletico back is very tempting at 3.0, but I’d like to have a draw onside here too in what should be a cracker, so I’m happy to lay Barcelona at 2.5.

The Ultra Says:
One point lay (liability) Barcelona to beat Atletico Madrid at 2.5 on BETDAQ Betting Exchange
