We are fast approaching the business end of the season and the games are coming thick and fast as the season hurtles to a close.
Again, we went really close with our picks last weekend and we hope for better luck this time.
Manchester United vs Burnley: Man Utd to win @1.37
Manchester United are in a fine spell of form with a run of four wins in all competitions should make it five on the bounce against Sean Dyche’s bad travellers. Burnley are looking over their shoulders at the relegation race having been drawn back into the fight for survival on the back of two succeessive losses including a 2-1 reverse to Newcastle last time out.
A win makes things easy and indeed they have lost just once in their last five visits to Old Trafford, which was on their most recent last season but United on this run should do the job and make 2nd place a bit more comfortable.
Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Sheffield United: Wolves to win @1.67
Sheffield United have accepted their fate long ago and it should be a stroll in the park for Wolves who overcame VAR controversy to snatch a win at Fulham last time out.
Atletico Madrid vs Eibar: Atletico to win @1.46
Football is a strange game and having looked a shoo-in for the title a few weeks ago, Atletico find themselves holding on to their lead in La Liga by the skin of their teeth and have just one win in their last four in the league.
Surely, the visit of Spain’s worst side should see Diego Simeone’s side correct course and get back to winning ways. Anything less and Atletico might as well deliver the title to Real Madrid themselves.
AC Milan vs Genoa: Milan to win @1.51
Milan have also seen their Serie A title challenge fizzle out in recent weeks and are now looking to secure second place from the chasing pack.
They’re unbeaten in three games and hosts a Genao side in 13th place and just the one win in their last nine games. Games between these two tend to be fiesty affairs and they’ve been five red cards issued in two of their last three games. This fixture also tends to produce goals and with at least three goals in four of the last five.
But we’ll go for Milan to win.
PSG vs Saint-Entienne: PSG to [email protected]
A second straight semifinal UCL secured, and PSG now turn their attention to the Ligue 1 where they host a resurgent Saint-Entienne.
Both sides played out a 1-1 draw in their most recent meeting and who knows PSG might have hangovers from their UCL semifinal but they should still have enough for all three points at home.
Atalanta vs Juventus: Both teams to score @1.45
Two free scoring sides with an aversion for clean sheets can only produce one out come.
