Mourinho faced his old side Chelsea in the London derby, Fernandes scored his first goal in a Man Utd shirt, PSG were involved in a 7 goal thriller and Bayern Munich went top of the Bundesliga.
But first, Lionel Messi ended his goal ‘drought’ in some style…
Magnificent Messi scores 4 – influence rating 5/5
Following a 3 game goal ‘drought’ for Lionel Messi, he was back on the scoresheet with a bang.
Unfortunately for Eibar, they were on the receiving end of Messi at his best. 3 first half goals for the genius followed by a fourth for him in the second half & Barcelona’s fifth, meant they were on the receiving end of a 5-0 hammering.
The Argentinian has now taken his La Liga tally to 18 for the season and 5 clear of the next top scorer.
Barcelona face fellow rivals and second place Real Madrid in their next La Liga fixture. With 22bet, you can get the best odds on Messi to score again and Barcelona to win.
Lampard does the double over Mourinho – influence rating 4/5
Frank Lampard came face to face with his old boss & former Chelsea manager Jose Mourniho for the second time this season. Earlier in the season, Chelsea defeated Tottenham 2-0 away from home which meant Mourinho was planning on revenge in front of the Stamford Bridge Crowd.
In a game which had plenty of VAR controversy, Frank Lampard’s men ran out 2-1 winners which helped boost the Blues top four hopes.
This was the second defeat for Tottenham in as many games with pressure now mounting on them reaching the Champions League for next season.
Tottenham face Wolves next who are just 1 point behind them in the league. You can bet on Spurs to get back to winning ways in this crucial fixture.
Bayern go top of the Bundesliga – influence rating 5/5
Following a mixed season, Bayern Munich now sit top of the Bundesliga after 5 wins in their last 6 games. More impressively, in all their victories they have scored at least 3 goals in those games.
Robert Lewandowski was on the scoresheet yet again for the German giants and has now taken his tally to an incredible 25 goals from just 23 games.
Bayern Munich face Hoffenheim in their next fixture and will be looking for revenge following their shock defeat to them earlier on in the season. As expected, Lewandowski did find the net in this game but it wasn’t enough for Bayern.
At 22bet, you can back Bayern to inflict their revenge and Lewandowski to be on the score sheet again this season.
7 goal thriller for PSG – influence rating 4/5
PSG now sit an incredible 15 points clear of second place following a goal fest against mid table Bordeaux. After coming from 1-0 down, normal service was quickly resumed as PSG found the net twice in the first half. A late first half stoppage time goal meant the scoreline was 2-2 at half time. PSG added 2 more goals in the second half, to take their tally to 4 goals for their third Ligue 1 game in a row. Bordeaux then found the net again but it was too little too late.
PSG have now scored 71 goals this season (on average over 2.5 goals a game) and face relegation battlers Dijon FCO in their next game who actually defeated the Paris giants in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
With the best odds, you can bet on PSG to win & score more than 2.5 goals in their next game.
Fabulous Fernandes scores his first for Man Utd – influence rating 4/5
Since his big Winter move from Sporting CP, Bruno Fernandes has quickly become a huge fan favourite for Man Utd.
Having only played 3 games for the Red Devils, Fernandes already has 2 assists, 2 man of the match performances and now a goal to his name after scoring from the spot against Watford as United went on to win 3-0.
Man Utd face a tough trip to Everton next and know a loss will do dent their quest for a top 4 place alive. United will be heavily relying on Fernandes for the remainder of the season to clinch that spot and you can bet on the Portugese superstar to find the next for the second game running against the Toffees.
