Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola
It's Klopp v Guardiola at Anfield on Sunday

It's another big weekend of action across the big European leagues so Max Liu is here with the early odds on some fascinating clashes, including Liverpool v Man City, the Turin derby and Atletico v Barcelona...

"Juve's last two Serie A matches finished 3-2, and there were goals at both in ends in the hosts' last two as well, so Both Teams to Score could be a bet."

Stoke v West Brom: Championship leaders face tough trip

Stoke v West Brom
Friday, 19:45

West Brom were expected to challenge for promotion this season and few will be surprised to see them trading at 1.4840/85 for a return to the top flight. Less predictable was their Friday night hosts Stoke's impressive start. The Potters are fourth in the table and 4.03/1 to go up. The side are gelling under Michael O'Neill but the unbeaten Baggies will be their biggest test yet.

Valerien Ismael's visitors are 2.466/4 to win with the home victory 3.211/5 and the draw 3.55/2.

Torino v Juventus: Turin derby is no ordinary mid-table clash

Torino v Juventus
17:00, Saturday

Torino enter the Derby della Mole in the rare position of being above Juventus in Serie A. The clubs sit ninth and 10th and, although Juventus have won two in a row in the league, this is probably the hosts best chances of recording their first win over the Old Lady since 2015.

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona: Hosts primed to put Koeman under pressure

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona
20:00, Saturday

The La Liga champions got a gutsy 2-1 win away to Milan in midweek and that will stand them in good stead for this Saturday night match against Barcelona. The extra day's rest is another reason why Diego Simeone's men may fancy their chances of adding to Ronald Koeman's problems.

Atleti are 2.0811/10 for the win, with Barca 4.03/1 on a ground where they have only lost once in six visits. The draw is 3.55 and it's worth noting that the two matches between the team last season produce just one goal.

Rennes v Paris Saint-Germain: More Messi magic?

Rennes v Paris Saint-Germain
12:00, Sunday

Lionel Messi's first goal for Paris Saint-Germain was worth waiting for, wasn't it? The way the Argentinian maestro burst towards goal with the ball, played the one-two, then curled his shot past Man City's Ederson on Tuesday left fans fired up and expecting more magic. Messi has shown he can still do it on the biggest stage but what about a Sunday lunchtime trip to Brittany?


We won't get rich backing the away win alone but PSG to win and Messi to score gets us odds of around 2.26/5 with Bet Builder.

Liverpool v Man City: Best attack meets best defence

Man City v Liverpool
16:30, Sunday

Man City lost at PSG on Tuesday but the Premier League championship were brilliant in their 1-0 win over Chelsea a few days before. Pep Guardiola would be delighted with a similar outcome as his team take on another of their title rivals at Anfield. Liverpool have hit 20 goals in their last six in all competitions and boast the best attack in the English top flight. City have the best defence, conceding just one so far.

City 2.56/4 are the early favourites, with Liveprool a generous-looking 3.02/1 to win at Anfield, and the draw 3.613/5.
