thumbnail Hello,

After another winner from the Bundesliga last week, Jonathan Day returns and is backing goals at Carrow Road as Roberto Mancini's side look to close the gap on the Red Devils

Norwich v Manchester City - Saturday April 14 2012

Manchester City closed the gap on leaders Manchester United to five points and will be looking to maintain the pressure on the Premier League champions this weekend.

City’s 4-0 victory over West Brom was their first win in four games, with David Silva chipping in with a fine strike and Carlos Tevez marking his return to the starting line-up with a goal.

Roberto Mancini's men will be determined to get as close to their city rivals as possible by April 30, when the two sides meet at Etihad Stadium for a crucial showdown.

Opponents Norwich produced a fine display at White Hart Lane this week and Paul Lambert’s side also picked up a point against Everton last time out with Grant Holt back amongst the goals.

The Canaries last four games have all finished with at least three goals and with Manchester City gunning for the title; goals should be plentiful at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon.

Tip: Both Teams to Score (Norwich v Manchester City) at 8/11 (1.72) at bet365

Malaga v Real Sociedad - Sunday April 15 2012

Malaga will be desperate to secure Champions League football this term and the Qatari-backed club will be looking to progress with their project under the guidance of former Real Madrid coach Manuel Pellegrini.

The hosts have won 11 times at La Rosaleda and Los Boquerones have won six of their last eight games in La Liga.

Opponents Real Sociedad appear safe for another season, with the Basque side 10 points ahead of the relegation zone in 14th place.

Sociedad have been boosted by the loan signing of Arsenal striker Carlos Vela, who has been enjoying his time in Spain with 10 goals, including four in the last three games.

Nine of Malaga’s 11 victories in Andalusia have featured at least three goals and Sunday’s encounter has a chance for the same with the home side chasing Champions League qualification.

Tip: Malaga to win AND Over 2.5 goals at 1/1 (2.00) at bet365
