Another week, another round of fixtures in the top 5 European leagues. This specific round is very complicated as most of the top teams have European commitments so many of them have a busy schedule with matches every 3 days. Let’s analyze the most anticipated clashes of the week and deliver our top tips.

<h2>Atalanta vs AC Milan (Serie A)</h2><p>This match is the only clash of the week in which the 2 sides have no European commitments. AC Milan failed to qualify in the Europa League knock-out stages, so they are both 100% focused on their domestic league trying to finish in top 4 and earn a UCL spot. They are separated by just 1 point in the standings with the host sitting 5th, 1 point behind their opponents. Atalanta are unbeaten in their previous 8 matches across all competitions winning 6 in the process. They have the best attack in their domestic league with 50 goals scored in 23 matches, averaging 2+ goals scored per match in the same time having the worst attack in top 10 with 31 goals conceded. They are equal on points with AS Roma and Lazio so if they lose this clash, they might lose their European position. On the other side, AC Milan can congratulate themselves for replacing their former striker Higuain with one of the most promising strikers in the Serie A, Krzysztof Piatek who scored 4 goals in his 1st 3 games for his side. We expect a thrilling match with at least 3 goals on the scoreboard.<br /><br /><a href=""><strong>Best tip for the match:</strong></a> Over 2.5 goals in the match at 1.9 with <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18">Bet365</a>.</p><p> </p><h2>Eintracht Frankfurt vs Monchengladbach (Bundesliga)</h2><p>This season in Bundesliga, the fight for the top spots is simply brilliant. Dortmund and Bayern are separated by just 5 points at the top of the table, Gladbach are just 3 points behind Bayern and 6 other teams are fighting for the last 2 European positions being separated by just 3 points. So basically, every single week many teams are exchanging places. Eintracht are unbeaten in their last 4 matches managing to hold Dortmund and RB Leipzig to draw matches. On the other side Gladbach saw their 9-home-game winning streak come to an end last weekend when they shockingly lost 3-0 to Hertha Berlin on their turf. They will be eager to bounce back and show that the negative result was just a mistake and that they’re much better. Before this match, the hosts travel to play Shakhtar Donetsk in Europa League so they will have less time to recover and be fully fit. Gladbach might take advantage and push for a win which will consolidate their 3rd place in the standings. We expect an exciting fixture between 2 attacking sides.<br /><br /><a href=""><strong>Best tip for the match:</strong></a> 2nd half goals – over 1.5 at 1.75 with <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18">Bet365</a>.</p><p> </p><h2>Villarreal vs Sevilla (La Liga)</h2><p>Sevilla are totally out of shape and if they don’t bounce back in time, they will be in danger of losing their 4th place in the standings with Getafe and Alaves sitting just 2 points behind them. After 3 defeats and just 1 win in their last 5 domestic league fixtures they’ve lost their confidence and their football appetite. More that they travel to Italy to play Lazio in Europa League and the result from that match will tell us everything about Sevilla. Despite being in the red zone and being the worst home team in La Liga, Villarreal have the necessary weapons to find the back of the net against Sevilla as they are desperate to win points and save themselves.<br /><br /><a href=""><strong>Best tip for the match:</strong></a> Over 2.5 goals at 1.85 with Betfair.</p>
