Real Madrid host Atletico Madrid on Thursday where they will be fighting to keep their hopes alive of retaining the Copa del Rey. After a 2-0 loss in the first leg of their last 16 tie last week, Carlo Ancelotti’s team will be pushing for a win against Atletico Madrid where they currently at an advantage from last week’s win thanks to a Jose Gimenez strike and Raul Garcia penalty. Newly crowned winner of the Ballon d’Or, Cristiano Ronaldo returns to the starting line-up which will provide Real Madrid with a full strength squad. A big victory would enable them to progress to the quarter-finals where they will likely face Barcelona. Speaking of Barcelona, they travel to Elche for their second leg of the Copa del Rey tie and after a perfect performance in the first leg, the Catalans will press on to claim a victory. However, despite the odds against Elche securing a win, Fran Escriba’s team will certainly be eager to restore some pride.
Over in England, Liverpool fans will be worried if Steven Gerrard will be missing from the squad for the critical Capital One Cup semi-final with Chelsea on Tuesday. Jose Mourinho may decide to put a full strength team against the Liverpool side at Anfield or decide to take a more relaxed approach and give his young players a chance to play in the semi-final. Whatever decision the Chelsea manager decides, can it pay off?
Next week, the first tennis tournament of the year begins with the Australian Open and bet365 will be live streaming the entire event that kick offs on the 19th January until the 1st February. These fixtures and times are still tbc. Djokovic and Federer are still the top players in the world but last year we saw Stan Wawrinka and Marin Cilic win a major and new younger players, such as Grigor Dimitrov and Milos Raonic are coming through the tennis world to show they are ready to also be contenders in this tournament. However, we are still speculating around Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray who are still on the comeback from injury and depending on their forms, the outcome of what happens in Australia will be determined by this.
We also have a host of NBA games on offer this week with one highlight of the Wizards facing the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls have had many players come back from injury and new players joining the team and have faced difficulties, which have been shown through their performances where they have allowed 100 or more points 18 times. The Bulls will hope to turn this around and avoid its second loss to the Wizards. Yet, the Wizard will be seeking their 5th consecutive victory and will not be showing any mercy against the Chicago Bulls.
