Man United vs. Chelsea (Premier League – Round 28)
The 2 sides are separated by just 3 points in the standings with the Red Devils sitting 2nd with 56 points and the Blues 4th, 3 points behind their opponents. Both teams are playing their Champions League knock-out stages 1st leg fixtures this week, and that might affect their fitness but hopefully none of their players will get injured in UCL. After 2 defeats in a row, Chelsea bounced back and won their home match 3-0 against West Brom last round, and also qualifying for the FA Cup quarter-finals last weekend after trashing Hull City 4-0. United enter this match on the back of a humiliating loss 0-1 away at Newcastle, and they will be eager to come back to winning ways. Both teams will be determined to win the 3 points, so we expect an open match full of scoring chances and at least 3 goals in the match.
Best pick for the match: Over 2.5 goals at 2.15 with Unibet.
Paris Saint-Germain vs. Marseille (Ligue 1 – Round 27)
This fixture is the most anticipated of the round in the French top-flight league. PSG are 12 points clear at the top of the table, and we can already name them champions with 12 rounds to go until the end of the season. They are unstoppable, they have attacking firepower and are scoring goals for fun. PSG are unbeaten of their turf in winning all their 13 home fixtures this season, scoring 51 goals in the process and conceding just 9. Marseille are sitting 3rd in the standings, just 1 point behind 2nd-placed AS Monaco and they will definitely enter this match to play their chance and return home with a positive result. They have the necessary weapons and skills to at least find the back of the net against a PSG shaky defense. Before this important fixture, Marseille travel to play Braga in the 2nd Europa League leg but they will surely rest their important players after winning the 1st leg 3-0 on home soil. We expect high-scoring affair between 2 attack-minded teams.
Best pick for the match: PSG to win and both teams to score at 2.2 with William Hill.
Sevilla vs. Atletico Madrid (La Liga – Round 25)
With the best defense in La Liga with just 9 goals conceded in 24 rounds, Atletico Madrid are the only side to fight with Barcelona for the title. They are sitting 2nd in the standings, 7 points behind the leaders with 14 rounds to go until the end of the season. They enter this match on the back of 5 wins in a row in all competitions, keeping 4 clean sheets in the process. Both teams have European Cups commitments this mid-week with Sevilla hosting Manchester United in Champions League and Atletico Madrid playing their 2nd Europa League leg at home against FC Copenhagen and having one 1 day less to rest before the big clash. If we are talking about their last mutual encounters, Sevilla should be favorites in this one as they won their last 2 head-to-heads last month in Copa del Rey. We expect Atletico to revenge that result.
