Sporting Gijon v Las Palmas – Home or Draw
Sporting kick off the weekend in La Liga looking for three crucial points in their battle against relegation. They couldn’t wish for a better opponent, with Las Palmas winning just once in six and conceding three or more goals four times in those games.
In reality, things look bleak for Sporting who go into the match six points behind 17th placed Leganes and are still overwhelming favourites for relegation. They are not in great form themselves, but showed great fight recently in a home game against Real Madrid.
Bournemouth v Stoke – Home Win
Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth all but secured safety while confirming Sunderland’s relegation last week and they look in good form coming into this one. Only Romelu Lukaku has scored more goals this calendar year than Josh King and the Norwegian could be the scourge of Stoke.
The Potters are in a typical vein of form for this point in the season, winding down with their place in mid-table safely assured. They have won just once in sixth and cannot wait for the season to come to a close.
Burnley v West Brom – Home Win
This is a meeting of two of the Premier League’s better performers this season, though in the Clarets’ case, that is only at Turf Moor. It took until last week at Crystal Palace for them to get their first away win of the campaign.
But they have won 10 of their 14 home games this season, and West Brom, despite still sitting in the top half of the table, have lost their last four without scoring. They are another team struggling to maintain their form from earlier in the season.
Swansea v Everton – Away Win
The toffees can mathematically still qualify for the Champions League, but despite how slim their chances are, they must go into their away fixture with Swansea looking to gain maximum points just in case enough teams above them fall apart in the final games of this league campaign.
They face a Swansea team who are in desperate trouble at the wrong end of the table and in the relegation places. The game is also a must win for the Welsh outfit and as such they need to push forward looking for goals themselves which will create spaces and counter attacking opportunities for a very quick Everton front line. Swansea’s last match at Old Trafford will have filled them with confidence but Everton should prove too strong for them.
Hertha Berlin v RB Leipzig – Draw or Away
Considering their relatively brief history as a club, Leipzig’s amazing season find them 5 points clear in 2nd place in the Bundesliga with just 3 games remaining. They will be desperate to keep this fairy tale alive until the end of the season. The visitors are unbeaten in six with four wins while an out of sort Hertha team have lost 5 of their last 7 matches.
But Hertha are still 5th in the table in a position to qualify for the Europa League next year which they missed out on last season on goal difference to Mainz. They won’t want to repeat that disappointment after leading the way with only 3 games left.
Sheffield Wed v Fulham – Home or Draw
A tough one with both sides going into the weekend in form. Both are scoring and it’s a top home team against a top away team. But Sheffield Wednesday have only lost one in the last seven H2H v Fulham so siding with them to take at least a point.
Bristol City v Birmingham – Draw or Away
Bristol City are safe after impressive wins against Barnsley and Brighton. Birmingham go into the weekend after Harry worked his magic winning v Huddersfield with ten men. They need a win to guarantee Championship status for next season. More Magic.
Wigan v Leeds – Away
Leeds find themselves with an outside chance to still qualify for the championship play off, but they will need a BIG win to do so against an already relegated Wigan. They are currently 3 points behind Fulham, who occupy 6th place, but they are a massive 13 goals behind when it comes to goal difference. Although this is most likely an impossible task to overcome when there is even the slightest chance of getting back up to England’s Premier League, they cannot let this opportunity pass them by.
They will also need 4th place Sheffield Wednesday to put as many past Fulham as possible and take 3 points off the London team when they play their final league game in Sheffield at the same time. You can generally expect the Leeds players to be kept unaware of goings on in Sheffield to make sure they play for the biggest win possible and I can only expect a Wigan team to be on the end of a hiding here.
Wolves v Preston – Draw
This match looks poor with both sides out of form. Neither has anything to play for, so based on stats and 3 draws in the last 5 H2H, they cancel each other out.
Rennes v Montpellier – Home or Draw
Another match with little to play for but, based on the season’s stats, I need to go with Rennes not to lose. They are 6th best at home compared to Montpellier 18th best away. Rennes have taken a point in 4 of the last 5 H2H’s at home.
Sassuolo v Fiorentina – Home or Away
Both teams like to score goals so a matter of who comes out strongest likely to dominate the proceedings. Sassuolo are safe from relegation while Fiorentina are holding onto the slim chance of Europa League qualification. A draw seems unlikely
Arsenal v Manchester United – Home
Arsenal were shocking in their match against Tottenham. But Manchester United are still searching for a way to score without their man Zlatan. An opportunity for Wenger and co to show the fans that the season is not quite over.
Malaga v Celta Vigo – Home
Celta Vigo’s campaign has crumbled, their only recent win coming against a 19th placed Granada. Malaga are 5 for 6 and are turning their final table position into a respectable one.
AC Milan v Roma – draw or Away
Despite domestic dominance from rivals Juventus in recent seasons, Roma still have an outside chance of being champions of Serie A though this requires Juve to lose their remaining 4 games. It seems almost impossible for that to happen given the Champions League semi finalists form but they find themselves having to think about resting key players to be in UCL form v Monaco.
Roma must take this as a chance to close the gap on the current Italian Champions. They are away at AC Milan whose last home game was a 2-1 defeat to 17th place Empoli. Roma have gained an impressive 15 out of 18 points in their last 6 away fixtures in the league.
Milan do need to get something from the game to maintain a gap over fierce city rivals Inter should Inter get a result away at Genoa earlier that afternoon to hold onto their Europa League qualifying position, which is why the draw has been coupled with the Roma win.
Leganes v Real Betis – Home or draw
It is the hosts in this one that are looking like sending Sporting down, but they must keep the gap between them and the bottom three. In truth, neither of these teams are in great form coming into this one. Both have won just once in six and been on the end of heavy defeats too. Betis will be licking their wounds after a 4-1 defeat at Alaves last time out, but Leganes were recently humbled by already relegated Osasuna.
