Paris St-Germain vs Barcelona Pick: Barcelona @ 2.20 X (4-0)
Barcelona are strong favorites and I believe they are able to win in Paris. PSG are not as strong as they were in the previous seasons. They are only second in domestic Ligue 1, three points behind Monaco. Coach Unai Emeri is not at Ancelotti’s level, that’s obvious. The Parisians had problem to handle with Monaco at home two weeks ago, a match that could be compered with this one. Now they have the hardest possible opponents – Barcelona. The Catalans have won their last three games against PSG. Messi, Neymar and Suarez are ready, so I don’t see how they will be stopped. Paris St-Germain have never kept a clean sheet in nine matches against Barcelona, now they are without key defender Thiago Silva due to injury and without important midfielder Thiago Motta through a suspension.
WTA Doha (hard)
I.Begu – D.Kasatkina 2 @ 1.35 @ ✓ (1-2)
Begu doesn’t seem to be able to beat anyone lately. She looked terrible against Mertens in Fed cup this weekend. The unforced errors are crippling her game and Kasatkina is great at provoking them. They already met this year and the russian won 6 3 6 3. The odd is far from spectacular but could be used in a combo.
ATP Rotterdam Doubles (hard)
Dodig/Granollers – Dimitrov/Pouille 1 @ 1.35 ✓ (2-0)
Dodig/Granollers took a break after Australian open where they fell in the quarters to the Bryans and are now ready for action again. Dimitrov and Pouille rarely play doubles. Their efforts should be more focused on the singles competition.
ATP Buenos Aires (clay)
Dolgopolov A. – Tipsarevic J. 2 @ 1.80 X (2-0)
Dolgopolov lost to Ram in Quito. His only win this season came against Coric who is still coming back from injury. On the other hand Tipsarevic seems to be steadily coming back to life. He also lost in Quito against Bellucci in two tiebreaks, which is nothing to be ashamed of on clay.
