Manchester City have finally won the league and that’s another league champion confirmed. After Barcelona dropped points against Levante, La Liga is still pretty much open and there’s still a lot to play for. However, league action is still in full swing and the schedule of a busy week continues. More games are in stock today and we’ll be bringing you the best predictions and betting tips from all action across Europe.
AC Milan boosted their top-four chances with a 3-0 win at Juventus, ending a run of nine consecutive Serie A away losses at the defending champions. That win marked a joint-league high 22nd victory after scoring first (W22, D1, L1). Taking on Torino away, AC Milan are well placed to win this one. A win here would see them equal the SA record for most away victories in a single season. Bet365 have 1.83 odds, Bet9ja have 1.84 and 1xbet have 1.91.
Atalanta boast a three-point cushion and superior goal difference over fifth-placed Juventus. They look well set to qualify for the Champions League once again. ‘La Dea’ will match their longest unbeaten run of the Serie A season (W6, D4) by avoiding defeat here against a relegation-threatened Benevento side. Benevento are likely to get relegated, having recorded only seven wins all season and losing four out of their last five games. We’re backing Atalanta to get the job done once again. Bet365 have 1.14 odds, Bet9ja have 1.16 and 1xbet have 1.20.
Sevilla’s title challenge hangs by a thread after a draw vs Real Madrid on Sunday, but they could still break up the top-three’s potential eight-year monopoly over the podium. A win for them against Valencia would take them to within one point of Barcelona and Real Madrid, putting pressure on both giants. Valencia would not cause too much trouble here as they have only one win from their last five outings. We expect Sevilla to take all three points. Bet9ja and Bet365 have 1.45 odds while 1xbet have theirs at 1.52.
Lazio’s dream of consecutive UEFA Champions League qualification berths is nearly over, after two losses by 2+ goals in four Serie A rounds. Even so, Lazio are expected to win handsomely here against a woeful Parma side. After six straight losses, with an average of 3.33 ‘goals against‘ per match, Parma have nothing to do except avoid a bottom-placed finish. They also have one of the worst defences in the league and we can see Lazio winning this one. Bet9ja have 1.16 odds, Bet365 have 1.18 and 1xbet have 1.24.
Over 2.5 Goals
Inter have already wrapped up the Serie A title but there’s still a lot to play for when they take on Roma. Simply put, this is a game expected to bring goals. With 14 home league wins in a row, the San Siro has been a fortress for an Inter side that owns the best home record across Europe’s top-five leagues with 2.71 ppg. Roma could easily get on the score-sheet as well and we’re backing the goal market to play out for this fixture. Bet9ja have 1.48 odds while Bet365 and 1xbet have 1.53.
Both teams are expected to score when Juventus travel to take on Sassuolo. Visitors Juventus must rebound from a devastating 3-0 loss to Milan on Sunday, which put their aspirations for a top-four finish in doubt. Naturally, the ’Bianconeri’ will be keen on scoring first, as they are one of only four sides currently in the top-flight yet to lose a league match after doing so this term. However, Sassuolo are on top form right now and are unbeaten in their last five games, hence we see them getting on the score-sheet as well. Bet9ja have 1.47 odds, 1xbet have 1.50 and Bet365 have 1.53.
Having suffered relegation already, Schalke head into this clash looking to drag Hertha Berlin with them into Germany’second tier next season. Hertha would be looking to fight until the very end and they’ll be different beasts tonight. Count on an early goal in this match and at least three goals from both teams after 90 minutes. Bte9ja have 1.60 odds, Bet365 have 1.66 and 1xbet have 1.71.
Atalanta take on Benevento in a game they are expected to win with a good number of goals as well. La Dea have a three-point cushion and superior goal difference over fifth-placed Juventus and look well set to qualify for the Champions League once again. Goals have been frequent at the Gewiss Stadium with 76.47% of Atalanta’s home SA games seeing over 2.5 goals, and 64.71% even featuring over 3.5 goals. We expect more of that to follow suit today. Bet9ja and Bet365 have 1.28 odds while 1xbet have 1.30.
Muriel has by far been the most prolific man for Atalanta in front of goal this season. The Colombian international has bagged respectable 21 Serie A goals and is a big reason Atalanta might secure Champions League football once again. He is also on top form at the moment with three goals from his last five games and we’re backing him to carry on that good form once again today. Bet365 have 1.50 odds for him to score while Bet9ja have 1.70.
With Ronaldo at 27 goals and Lukaku behind with 21, the Belgian might have conceded the top-scorer award to the Juventus star. However, Lukaku would be looking to cement his name further in the Inter history books and you would imagine he’ll want to end the season on a high. Bet365 have 1.72 odds while Bet9ja have 1.75.
Lazio might find it impossible to break into the top four but they can still leapfrog Juventus for fifth place. Immobile is a man on form right now with five goals across his last five Serie A games. Taking on a woeful Parma side today, he’ll fancy his chances of grabbing a goal or two. Bet9ja have 1.36 odds while Bet365 have 1.50.
After Barcelona dropped points against Levante, Atletico know they must make the most of that by taking all three points against Real Sociedad. Luis Suarez knows too well about winning titles and he’ll be more than motivated to get on the score-sheet today and inspire his side to a title win. Bet9ja have 1.90 odds while Bet365 have it slightly better at 2.00.
