STAR PREVIEW: Espanyol v Real Sociedad
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he Premier League title race is the gift that keeps on giving this season and Star Sports now can’t split Leicester and Arsenal after their weekend wins.
100/30 Man City
Sky can often be accused of over-spinning the ‘super’ part of Super Sunday’s but this coming weekend it surely doesn’t do it justice.
More seismic than super:
12:00 Arsenal v Leicester City
4:15 Manchester City v Tottenham
The Sky cameras are in Spain tonight where Espanyol are hovering just above the dreaded, dotted relegation line and will hardly come into tonight’s game against Sociedad (14th in table but only three points off the drop zone themselves) brimming with confidence after their 6-0 mauling at the hands of Real Madrid last weekend – they were 3-0 down after just 17 minutes.
It’s now eight matches without a win for Espanyol, although they did manage to beat Sociedad in this reverse fixture in September.
Sociedad come here on the back of a valuable 2-1 win against Real Betis having previously been beaten 5-1 by Sporting Gijon.

The DRAW makes most appeal at 9/4 with Star Sports and I’ll have a small bet on a 0-0 final outcome as well at 15/2. It really does look like one of THOSE games.
RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-50 points)
BACK DRAW for 6 points at around 9/4 with Star Sports
BACK 0-0 CS for 3 points at around 15/2 with Star Sports
