Barcelona v Real Betis – Cesc Fabregas to score at any time @ Evens
Barcelona will be eager to return to winning ways at home to Real Betis this Sunday evening, but while an improvement may be required for the Catalan team, one man who needs no kick up the backside is Cesc Fabregas.
The Spanish midfielder has enjoyed a rich vein of goalscoring form for Barca since his controversial arrival from Arsenal in the summer, with nine goals in his first 13 La Liga appearances for the champions.
Recent weeks have seen Fabregas notch a highly impressive four goals in his last three La Liga games for Pep Guardiola’s side, including a goal in their 1-1 draw with Espanyol last week.
Real Betis may be on a good run of form in the league, but with Barcelona continuing to score goals aplenty in 2012, Fabregas is certainly the man to watch on this occasion.
Juventus v Cagliari – Alessandro Matri to score at any time @ 7/5
With Fabio Quagliarella out of contention with a facial injury this week, Antonio Conte is likely to recall Alessandro Matri to the starting line-up for the visit of Cagliari to the Juventus Stadium.
Matri’s substitute appearance against Lecce last week saw the 27-year-old grab a priceless late winner for the Bianconeri and the visit of Cagliari could prove equally fruitful for the goal-getter.
Coming into this game, Matri has scored six goals over the last five encounters between the Turin giants and Cagliari.
With the arrival of Marco Borriello from Roma last week, competition for places in the Juve starting line-up remains fierce and Matri will be eager to stake a claim here by getting on the scoresheet.
Marseille v Lille – Eden Hazard to score at any time @ 5/2
While rumours of Eden Hazard’s potential departure from Lille in the January transfer window are likely to rumble on throughout the month, this Sunday’s encounter with an indifferent Marseille side could provide ample evidence of the midfielder’s goalscoring talents.
After all, Hazard has been in fine form in front of goal for Lille of late, netting three in his last four matches for Rudi Garcia’s team in Ligue 1.
Hazard will undoubtedly be eager to impress potential suitors running the rule over him at the Stade Velodrome, with the encounter representing the pick of the matches in France this weekend.
Last time out in the league, the young Belgian was on target with a second-half goal that came as part of a 4-4 draw with Nice and he looks good to notch again on Sunday.
