There's a host of action in Europe's top leagues this Saturday, and here's our simple slip!
🏟 Atletico Madrid vs Valencia
Valencia has improved results of late to ease immediate relegation concerns, but a trip to the Wanda Metropolitano to face the league leaders is unlikely to give them an opportunity to add to their season tally. Hosts Atléti rode their luck to beat Sevilla in their last home game, but eight wins from nine at home make Diego Simeone's side clear favorites whoever they face at the moment. Ahead of this weekend, no team has scored in both halves more times than Atlético (eight) this LaLiga campaign.
🧠 TIP: Atleti win at FT

🏟 Schalke 04 vs Bayern Munich
Bayern's 8-0 win over Schalke on the opening weekend of the season set the tone for both team's campaigns, and they go into this round of fixtures first and last respectively. Schalke has won just one of their last 16 Bundesliga home fixtures (W1, D5, L10), with four of the last six defeats in that sequence each seeing them lose one half by a precise 2-0 scoreline.

🏟 Elche vs Barcelona
Elche hosts a Barcelona side reeling from a recent extra-time Spanish Super Cup final defeat, but the hosts are currently enduring a 12-game winless La Liga run (D7, L5) after giving up a 2-0 halftime lead to draw 2-2 last time out. Even without suspended skipper Leo Messi, Barca should beat a side with just one home win all season.

🏟 St. Etienne vs Lyon
This Rhône derby could be the catalyst for safety or the title for these rivals, with Saint-Étienne keen to end a five-game winless streak that has them dropping towards the relegation zone (D3, L2), and Lyon needing to halt a two-game winless run (D1, L1) that’s knocked them off top spot and is threatening to see them lose ground on new frontrunners PSG and Lille. Three of the last four derbies have featured 4+ yellow cards and a penalty, so those could be feisty.
🧠 TIP: Over 2.5 match goals
