Betting Tips: Who ate all the pies? Not the Spurs fans!
This match was originally scheduled to take place at Tottenham Hotspur’s new ground, but the move-in date has again been pushed back.
Therefore, Spurs will entertain Manchester City at Wembley – much to the chagrin of the club’s supporters, who have clearly not been won over by the fact that England’s national stadium has over 2,600 toilets and almost 700 food and drink service points.
Service points where they can enjoy the privilege of overpriced, lukewarm pies and tasteless refreshments. This should at least be an entertaining encounter on the field, so go for both teams to score at 1.60.

Manchester United vs Everton (Premier League)
It’s been an unusually quiet couple of weeks for Jose Mourinho. He’s had to battle back against reports that he was set to be sacked as Manchester United manager, been charged by the Football Association for swearing into a television camera in Portuguese, and got himself involved in a touchline bust-up with a member of Chelsea’s coaching staff.
Things are never dull as far as the 55-year-old is concerned (with the notable exception of his team’s style of play), and more fireworks are certainly possible this weekend.
Barcelona vs Real Madrid (La Liga)
In a world which seems more divided than it has for some time, we should all be thankful for Real Madrid. After all, the European champions have managed to unify the planet in recent weeks.With all but the club’s fans able to get together and laugh at their shambolic performances.
Saturday’s 2-1 home loss to Levante made it four league games without a win for los Blancos, who are now four points adrift of top spot.
Julen Lopetegui’s acceptance of the Madrid job in the summer now looks like the worst decision in football since John Terry opted to spend his swansong season as a player in Birmingham rather than Los Angeles, New York or the Far East.
Anyway, back Barcelona to win the Clasico at 2.00, even without Lionel Messi.
Lazio vs Inter (Serie A)
Inter left it late before winning the derby against Milan last time out, with Mauro Icardi’s header in second-half stoppage time bringing them all three points at San Siro.
Nerazzurri boss Luciano Spalletti now turns his attention to Lazio and Simone Inzaghi, the man who – unlike the bald Spalletti – probably has the best hair of any dugout-dweller in Serie A.
Expect a cagey, tense affair in the capital, with under 2.5 goals looking like a good value option at 2.10.
Napoli vs Roma (Serie A)
This match is nicknamed the Derby of the Sun in Italy, which goes to show you just how important fans of Napoli and Roma consider themselves to be.
Former Giallorossi midfielder Carlo Ancelotti has done a good job at the Stadio San Paolo so far, and home advantage means it is worth backing Napoli to come out on top at odds of 1.75.
Marseille vs Paris Saint-Germain (Ligue 1)
Do we really need to say it? Paris Saint-Germain will win this weekend; they are playing in Ligue 1, after all.
Facing rivals Marseille away from home is perhaps their trickiest task of the campaign, though, so the capital club may have to settle for just a two- or three-goal margin of victory.
Put some money on the visitors with a -1 handicap, which is offered at 2.10.
