Bet 1: Real Madrid (HOME) @ 1.85 (17/20) - Live on Sky Sports 2 at 19:00
Fixtures in world football don't come much bigger than the Madrid Derby at the moment and with Real on the receiving end of back to back defeats to city rivals, Atletico, the stage is set for them to earn their revenge in the Copa del Rey this evening.
Cristiano Ronaldo saw red in the 1-1 draw at Bilbao on Sunday but he's available for tonight's clash and boss Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that he will start. The former Chelsea manager has also said that Gareth Bale will be back in the squad following his omission at the weekend and the Welshman certainly has a point to prove.
This is only the first leg but Real will be desperate to take a lead to the Calderón as they lost their last meeting with Atletico at the Bernabeu back in September and they also suffered a 2-1 defeat in the final of this competition last year.
It's not going to be easy though as Diego Simeone has his men in excellent form. They went to the top of La Liga by beating the in-form Real Sociedad on Sunday and that was their fourth win in a row.
The Mattress Makers haven't been beaten since a 1-0 defeat at Espanyol on October 19th - a spell of 23 matches - but I just think that their opponents will want this more, and even a narrow loss tonight will still keep them in the tie.
Bet 2: FC Twente (AWAY) @ 1.95 (19/20)
Our away win comes from Holland this week as FC Twente look like excellent value to get the job done at Heerenveen.
Heerenveen are managed by Dutch legend Marco Van Basten and they are doing quite well in the Eredivisie - up in fifth place with 33 points from 21 fixtures. There is a seven point gap to Feyenoord above them, but they do come into this game on the back of a 3-0 victory over ADO Den Haag.
What worries me about their chances tonight though is that their record against teams in the top four has been poor this term. They haven't managed to get a victory over Ajax, Vitesse, Twente or Feyenoord, and while they did draw with the former on home soil back in August, more recent outings at Abe Lenstra Stadion against Vitesse and Feyenoord have ended in defeat. It is also worth mentioning that they will be without two key defenders tonight - Pele van Anholt and Arnold Kruiswijk.
FC Twente are up in third place in the league and victory in their game in hand this evening would move them to within one point of the leaders. They are in fine form - 19 points from a possible 21 - and that includes away wins at AZ and Roda JC.
Michel Jansen has got his players firing in front of goal as they've netted six in their last two outings and they haven't failed to score since August. They are unbeaten in four on the road and while they lost in the cup on this ground back in September, they will still have fond memories of winning 5-1 here in 2011.
Bet 3: Peterborough v Swindon (Over 2.5 goals) @ 1.72 (8/11) - Live on Sky Sports 1 at 19:15
Football League Trophy action from England now as the League One pairing of Peterborough and Swindon face off in the first leg of their Sectional Final, and despite it being the first leg, the goals look set to flow.
Peterborough were one of the favourites for promotion this season following their relegation from the Championship, but after a bright start, they have faded a touch and dropped to seventh place. The problem has been at the back for Darren Ferguson's side and that has caused their recent outings to be more like cricket scores than football scores.
Posh have seen 12 of their last 13 in all competitions go over 2.5 goals, with their four most recent scorelines being 2-1, 2-3, 3-0, 4-3 and 5-4. They somehow managed to throw away a 3-0 lead last time out at Oldham, and it's almost impossible to see them keeping a clean sheet here.
Swindon are only a place behind Peterborough in the league table but the gap is four points and they've played a game more. It's just one win in five for The Robins and they were beaten 1-0 at home by Oldham on Saturday.
As far as the goals go, while only four of their last nine have gone over 2.5, it has to be noted that they've conceded two or more in three of their last five on the road, and that when they met in the league last month, the match ended with three goals scored.
Bet 4: Nottingham Forest v Preston (Under 2.5 goals) @ 1.86 (20/23) - Live on BT Sport 1 at 19:45
Another English cup tie now but this time in the FA Cup as Nottingham Forest travel to Preston North End in a fourth round replay. The original game finished 0-0 and I think we could be in for more of the same here.
Preston are riding high in League One under Simon Grayson and they would have been delighted to earn a draw at the City Ground and get a chance to progress at Deepdale.
They couldn't be in much better form - two defeats in their last 22 in all competitions - and they made it three clean sheets on the bounce on Saturday in a 2-0 victory over Notts County. They haven't been overly prolific of late themselves though and that has caused eight of their last 10 to go under 2.5 - four of which went under 1.5 goals.
Nottingham Forest are also doing well in the league as they are currently fifth in the Championship and still in with a chance of automatic promotion. They are unbeaten in 13 and their last two outings resulted in victories over Watford and Yeovil at the City Ground.
As far as the goals go, Billy Davies' men have seen five of their last half dozen on the road have two goals or less and their last four results have been 0-1, 0-0, 1-1 and 1-1.
