All the major European football leagues are set to showcase exciting encounters this weekend, something that will undoubtedly please hardcore fans.

Bayern Munich will face Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga while Barcelona will square off against local rivals Espanyol in the Primera. PSG will host Nantes in the french league and AS Roma will take on Sassuolo in the Italian top flight.
Spanish La Liga has superb games for the weekend
Following the midweek games that saw many Spanish sides take on weaker clubs in the Copa del Rey, the Spanish La Liga is back and ready for action. Real Madrid will host Celta Vigo and many online sportsbooks in Spain believe that this should just be another routine win for the Blancos. They currently sit in 1st place with a total for 33 points, so they will be looking to build on their lead in an attempt to win their first Primera crown since 2012.
• Barcelona will play against town rivals Espanyol
• Bayern Munich are looking to maintain winning streak at home
• PSG will host Nantes on the weekend in Ligue 1
• AS Roma and Sassuolo will go head to head at the Stadio Olimpico
Unibet has given Real Madrid odds of 1.10 (1/10), while a win for Celta Vigo stands at a high 20.00 (19/1). a draw doesn’t seem to be possible for the visitors as well 11.00 (10/1) considering that Carlo Ancelotti’s men are currently enjoying a great winning streak. Regarding this particular game, if everything should go according to plan the final result will see the hosts seal a big win.
Their arch rivals Barcelona will play Espanyol at the Nou Camp on Sunday in the Catalan derby. The visiting team hasn’t scored against their neighbors for a total of 455 minutes in La Liga, and that statistic probably won’t help them as they head into the heated clash. Espanyol are currently struggling in 12th place (14 points) whereas Barcelona (31 points) are only 2 points behind leaders Real Madrid in the standings.
According to Spanish gambling laws, Unibet is able to provide numerous gaming services and is currently favoring the hosts for a win 1.08 (1/13), while Espanyol would require a miracle 25.00 (24/1) to seal a victory against their across town rivals. Despite this being a one-sided encounter it should still prove to be a thrill to watch a local Catalan derby.
German Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and Seria A will all showcase thrilling encounters
Bayer Leverkusen will visit the Allianz Arena as they will play against hosts Bayern Munich, who are now the dominating force in the German league. They have amassed a total of 33 points from 13 games (10 wins, 3 draws and 0 losses) and they maintain an impeccable home record of 7 straight wins. Unibet has given Guardiola’s men favorite odds that stand at a high 1.26 (13/50), while Leverkusen’s chances seem rather slim with odds being set at 10.00 (9/1).
PSG have slightly slipped up and Marseilles has taken the opportunity to claim the first spot in Ligue 1. Blanc’s men are now in second palce with 34 points, but they will next face Nantes in a match that should be an easy win for them. They have been assigned odds of 1.29 (2/7), whereas a draw between the sides stands at a high 5.25 (17/4). A win for Nantes would be a big achievement against such a team as PSG, however their chances are quite low 11.00 (10/1).
AS Roma seem to be the only team this season that can challenge Juventus for glory in the Seria A. They are now in second place with 31 points, whereas Juventus are only 3 points ahead. The club from the Italian capital will next play against Sassuolo at home, a match that Roma should be able to overcome easily 1.33 (33/100).
