Daily Football Predictions-21-05-2022

An exciting league campaign will finally come to an end this weekend and we can say it has been an enjoyable run so far.

With one last dance across Europe’s top five leagues, we aim to conclude the 2021/22 campaign on a high as we bring you the best bets and prediction from all of the action today.

Straight Wins

Nice will fight to finish in the top five when they travel to Reims on 21st May. It is, therefore, a do-or-die for the visitors who hope they can participate in European competitions next season. While all the last four games ended square, three of which were barren draws, we think Nice will upset that record with a win in this last game of the season. Reims are safe in the top flight but Nice needs three points to go fifth. Bet9ja has 1.88 odds, Paripesa have 1.92 odds and 1xBet have 1.92 odds.

Juventus have secured 4th spot in Serie A with a game to spare and can’t finish any higher. That means that Fiorentina have plenty of motivation to go out and claim all three points this weekend as a win for the hosts could see them claim a top 6 finish. Anything else could see Atalanta move above them. Fiorentina might not have the best of records against Juventus but we’re still backing the home side to win on Saturday. Fiorentina have won two of their last three home games and have far more motivation for the three points this weekend compared to their guests. Juventus haven’t won any of their last three matches in the league and cup, losing against Inter Milan and Genoa whilst drawing with Lazio. Bet9ja have 1.88 odds, Paripesa have 1.91 odds and 1xBet have 1.91 odds.

Atalanta could climb two places in the table on the final day of the season as long as the hosts win at home to the bottom half of the table Empoli and both Fiorentina and Roma fail to win their games. Empoli has little left to play for this season but pride and will be relieved to have avoided relegation from Serie A with plenty of games to spare. Atalanta has won four of their last seven meetings with Empoli, Atalanta has two wins in five games and has just one loss going into this fixture. They have a lot to play for with the team set on qualifying for Europe. Bet9ja have 1.23 odds, Paripesa have 1.25 odds and 1xBet have 1.25 odds.

Clermont have avoided relegation as they currently stand five points clear of the relegation zone and only a game left. Lyon is our best pick to win this Ligue 1 game. It is the last game of the season and with both sides safe in the top flight, everything boils down to a supremacy battle. This is also the second encounter ever between these teams. The reverse encounter was a thrilling game that recorded 6 goals in a 3-3 outcome. However, based on recent results, we expect the away team to get a resounding victory in this last game of the season. Bet9ja have 1.83 odds, Paripesa have 1.85 odds and 1xBet have 1.85 odds.

Over 2.5 Goals

PSG are top of the Ligue 1 and have already been crowned champions. That means the Parisians have little to play for after achieving their goal and also securing a Champions League spot next season. This game will be decisive for Metz. The visitors have a narrow chance to avoid relegation if they make a final push to avoid defeat in this game. However, chances could be slimmer if they lose or settle for a draw. A match against PSG could drive Metz further down the drain but we do expect lots of goals in this game. Therefore, our first prediction is more than three goals. Bet9ja have 1.21 odds, Paripesa have 1.25 odds and 1xBet have 1.25 odds.

Lens and Monaco are undefeated in the last five games. Within that run, Lens recorded three wins and two draws. Moreover, Lens comes to this last game of the season with an impressive record of the seven-matches undefeated run. Within that run, Lens recorded five wins and two draws. Moreover, the hosts have two clean sheets from their last seven Ligue 1 assignments. We expect another high-scoring encounter between Lens and Monaco in this second meeting of the season. A total of six goals were scored in the reverse game and based on the good run these teams have had in recent games, we predict another high scoreline in this last game of the current Ligue 1 season. Bet9ja have 1.55 odds, Paripesa have 1.56 odds and 1xBet have 1.56 odds.

Genoa are already relegated on the final day of the season and are now preparing for life outside Serie A. Mid-table Bologna provide the opposition on Saturday 21st May and the visitors have little left to play for on the last day of the season, other than pride. Four goals were scored when these two sides locked horns for their reverse league fixture, which ended in a 2-2 draw, and we’re predicting plenty of goalmouth action on Saturday as well. Three of Genoa’s last six matches and four of Bologna’s last five outings have also ended with over 2.5 goals being scored, adding further weight to our prediction. Bet9ja have 1.67 odds, Peripesa have 1.76 odds and 1xBet have 1.76 odds.

Lorient are four points safe from the red zone. On the other hand, Troyes is six points clear of the drop zone. Over 2.5 is another likely outcome in this Ligue 1 match of the season between Lorient and Troyes. The visitors saw more than two goals scored in all their last three games. Troyes leaked at least two goals in each of their last two games. On the flip-side, Lorient saw two or more goals scored in three of their last four matches. Moreover, Lorient conceded at least two goals in those three games, all of which they lost. With such stats on both ends, there is a good chance this game could yield more than two goals. Bet9ja have 1.74 odds, Paripesa have 1.85 odds and 1xBet have 1.85 odds. 

Anytime Goalscorers


On what could be his last appearance as a PSG player, Kylian Mbappé will be keen for a good start to wrap up a fine campaign. He is currently ahead in the race for the golden boot by a single goal and should want to increase that number today. Securing one more golden boot before a possible departure for the Frenchman would do good for his career and he can do that here today. Bet9ja have 1.40 odds while Paripesa have 1.44 odds.                                                                                                                                 


Croatia’s Mario Pasalic is the top scorer for Atalanta this season with 13 Serie A goals, his best-ever total since netting 11 in one campaign for Hajduk Split in 2013/14. We’re backing the midfielder to add to his tally on the final day of the season because he has netted 4-goals in his last five league games for Atalanta and has been very economical in front of goal of late. Bet9ja have 2.10 odds while Paripesa have 1.83 odds.

Gutted to have lost the Coppa Italia trophy to Inter Milan he would surely be looking to add to his goal tally here today. Bet9ja have 2.80 odds while Paripesa have 2.00 od6s.


Moussa Dembélé’s incredible current six-game scoring streak in Ligue 1 football now includes five goals as Lyon’s first goalscorer. He is a good addition to the tips here as he would surely score for Lyon today, we have him included here for his scoring streak which won’t surely stop here today. Clermont would struggle to contain him in this game. Bet9ja have 1.95 odds while Paripesa have 2.00 odds.
