Saturday's betliveTV football action

Enjoy an evening of top quality European football from Italy and Portugal all for free, on your PC, with betliveTV.

All the action gets underway from 17:00 with Lazio taking on Bologna, and you can find below a few stats to help you decide what to put your money on.

Lazio v Bologna

The home side have won six and drawn two of their last eight meetings with Bologna at the Stadio Olimpico and are 8/13 to continue this impressive record. The draw is priced at 23/10, if you think Bologna can complete a league double over the Capital club then you can back the away side at 4/1.

The Roman outfit have scored more goals than any team outside the top six, thanks in no small part to former Birmingham man Mauro Zárate, he's weighed in with eight goals from 23 starts and is 7/2 to open the scoring on Saturday. Defender Sebastiano Siviglia has got a couple of goals this season and could be worth a punt at a huge 33/1 for the first goal or 12/1 to notch at anytime in the match.

Bologna, managed by former Lazio favourite Sinisa Mihajlovic, have relied heavily on Marco di Vaio for goals this season and the league's top scorer, with 16 to his name including two in the reverse fixture earlier this season, is 8/1 for the first goal and a tempting 11/4 to pounce at anytime.

Nacional v Academica

The hosts are desperate for another crack at European football after been knocked out in the early rounds in their previous campaigns. They are well placed to achieve qualification this season and will help themselves immensely by beating Academica who are yet to win on their travels this season.

The Madeira side are 13/20 to record a sixth home victory of the season, while the draw can be backed at 23/10. If you think Academica can repeat their success of last season at this stadium (the visitors triumphed 3-0) then a price of 37/10 could prove fantastic value.

Juventus v Napoli

Turin giants Juve have been tough to beat this season, only suffering defeat twice on home soil. The 27 time Scudetto winners haven't given up on adding to that tally this year but will have their work cut out catching table toppers Inter Milan.

The hosts are undefeated in their last 11 home meetings with Napoli in the Serie A and are priced at 8/15 to extend this run. The draw is available at 23/10, Napoli have only won twice on the road this season and are a massive 5/1 to return to the south of Italy with all three points.

Brazilian striker Amarui has been a regular scorer for The Old Lady this season, bagging 12 goals in 23 starts and can be backed at 4/1 to score the first goal against his old side or evens to strike at anytime in the match.

Attacking midfielder Marek Hamsik certainly knows the way to the back of the net, the Slovakian international has hit nine goals in 20 appearances this season, and he is a cracking price at 12/1 to strike first in the game and is 5/1 to grab a goal at anytime in the 90 minutes.

Porto v Sporting Lisbon

Top-of-the-table Porto host a wounded Sporting side in our final betliveTV offering of the evening. The two sides had very contrasting weeks in the Champions League - Porto scored two vital away goals against Atlético Madrid in a hard fought draw, which could've been even better had it not been for a goalkeeping howler from Helton, while Sporting were humbled 5-0 in their own backyard against German champions Bayern Munich.

Porto are odds on favourites for the clash between the two Super Liga heavyweights and you can back them at 10/11, having only lost once at Estádio do Dragão in nine matches this could be great value. The draw is 21/10, and if you think Sporting, who have only lost once on their travels this season and recently beat Porto 4-1 in the League Cup semi-final, can bounce back from their mid-week humiliation and claim all three points against their great rivals then 13/5 could tempt you in.
