AC Milan vs Sampdoria: Milan to win @1.54
It’s squeaky bum time in the Serie A and dropped points at this stage can prove fatal in the title race. After looking like their years-long title drought will be ending this season, Milan have fallen off the summit and find themselves six points behind city rivals Inter having played a game more.
Stefano Pioli’s side have battled injury troubles to key players throughout the season, but talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic is back and Hakan Çalhanoğlu is fit again, so, Pioli has a bit more options to play with.
Milan won 3-2 at Fiorentina just before the international break to correct a 3-game wobble of no wins. They welcome a Sampdoria with just a win in their last six games to the San Siro and should have enough to extend their unbeaten streak against the visitors to four games.
Bologna vs Inter Milan: Inter to win @1.46
The title is clearly Inter’s to lose and Antonio Conte’s side are in ominous form having bagged seven straight wins in Serie A.
This fixture tends to produce goals with five of the last six producing at least two goals and both sides scoring in the last three. BetBiga offers over 2.5 goals at an attractive 1.55.
Bologna tend to do well against Inter and the last four between these sides is evenly split on two wins apiece but Inter have the bit between their teeth and don’t look like letting go.
Torino vs Juventus: Juve to win @1.54
We stay in Italy where another title hopeful Juventus travel across town to the Stadio Olimpico to take on city rivals Torino in the Turin derby.
Having been disappointingly knocked out of the UCL, Juve’s slim hopes of retaining the Scudetto lie in staying as close as possible to leaders Inter and in Torino who they’ve beaten three times on the bounce, Andrea Pirlo’s third-placed side have the perfect opposition to get three points.
Lazio vs Spezia: Lazio to win @1.48
Simone Inzaghi’s Lazio have failed to hit the heights of last season and currently find themselves seventh in the table and six points off the UCL places.
Lazio haven’t in great recent form but against 15th-placed Spezia with just one win in six games, Rome side should take another step towards UCL qualification with a win.
Manchester United vs Brighton: Man Utd to win @1.62
The generous odds on offer for a United win pretty much sums up what bookies think of Graham Potters Brighton: A very good side whose 16th position doesn’t quite reflect their ability.
The Seagulls haven’t always gotten what their play deserved but two wins in a row have eased relegation worries after a run of six games without a win. While they’re on a good run at the moment, it’s hard to see Brighton leaving Old Trafford with anything; they’ve lost five straight to the Red Devils and are allergic to keeping a clean sheet in the fixture.
United want to finish a respectable second to Man City and with the Cityzens away at third-placed Leicester, would see this as a perfect opportunity to close the gap to first place or put some daylight between themselves and the Foxes.
Porto vs Santa Clara: Porto to win @1.29
The head-to-head in this tie stands at 7-0 in favour of Porto and it’s hard to think it won’t be 8-0 after Santa Clara visit the Estadio Dragao on Saturday.
Porto have a UCL date with Chelsea in midweek and that could affect Sérgio Conceição’s thinking but whatever team Conceição puts out should get the job down against Santa Clara.
Leeds United vs Sheffield United: Leeds to win @1.53
Sheffield United are dead and buried; that much is settled and all they have left to play for is pride. But even that seems too much for the demoralised Blades who’ve lost four on the trot in all competitions and seem incapable of mustering any sort of fight.
Leeds have had a fantastic return to the topflight and have secured their stay for another season. The focus now for Marcelo Bielsa’s side is to climb the table and this is a fantastic opportunity for them to climb into the top ten.
Red Bull Salzburg vs Sturm Graz: Salzburg to win & over @1.37
This fixture has produced at least three goals seven of the last nine times including the last five. You can back that option on BetBiga at 1.45.
It’s the Championship round in the Austrian Bundesliga and leaders Salzburg will be looking to burnish their title credentials with a win on Sunday. They beat Sturm Graz 4-0 in the Cup to reverse a run of two losses in this fixture and are on a run of five straight wins in all competitions. It will be a keenly contested tie but Salzburg should do the business.
Heerenveen vs Ajax
It’s 10th vs 1st in the Eredivisie and Ajax are nearly home and dry. They lead PSV by 11 points having played a game less and with seven rounds of matches left (eight for Ajax) are all but assured of a 35th league crown.
Ajax are unbeaten in 10, winning nine in that run and have also won the last three in this fixture. That count should get to four straight wins on Sunday against Heerenveen who have lost three of their last five matches.
Real Madrid vs Eibar: Real to win @1.34
Zinedine Zidane’s side still maintain hopes of retaining their LaLiga crown and with leaders, Atletico Madrid away at Sevilla, Real would want to make the best use of the opportunity relegation-threatened Eibar offers.
Real announced that inspirational captain Sergio Ramos will miss this fixture along with the midweek tie against Liverpool in the UCL. That might be a blow but not strong enough to derail them against lowly Eibar who they’ve beaten four times on the bounce.
