It seems like Real Madrid have found their shape, winning 7 of their last 8 fixtures in all competitions and scoring 25 goals in the process. Not just that, they qualified once again the Champions League quarterfinals by beating French giants Paris Saint-Germain in both legs. They are sitting 3rd in the Spanish domestic league standings with no chances to win the title being 15 points behind leaders Barcelona, but they are still fighting Atletico Madrid for a top 2 finish. On the other side, from a town of just 27,000 inhabitants Eibar is the smallest team ever to play in La Liga, but they are enjoying a brilliant season sitting 8th in the table and having great chances to catch the European spots. Playing all their matches with their heart and putting their best effort to give their fans something to cheer for, Eibar will make it very tough for the reigning champs to leave with a win.

Best pick for the match: Real Madrid to win and over 2.5 goals in the match at +105 with Coral.

West Brom vs. Leicester (Premier League – Round 30)

Only a miracle might save West Brom from going down at the end of the season. Having the worst attack in the English top-flight league, West Brom is last in the standings with just 20 points earned in 29 rounds. They enter this match on the back of 6 consecutive defeats in all competitions, and their manager Alan Pardew is under pressure with rumors saying that he will be sacked in case of another defeat. On the other side, Leicester are winless in their last 5 Premier League fixtures, but this is the perfect opportunity for them to bounce back and return to winning ways. They are still fighting for a top 6 finish, being just 8 points being 6th-place Arsenal, and we expect them to return home with the 3 points and climb the standings.

Best pick for the match: Leicester to win with DNB (Draw No Bet) at -117 with William Hill.

Cagliari vs. Lazio (Serie A – Round 28)

Cagliari are just 4 points above the danger zone and in desperate need of points in their battle to avoid relegation. They enter this game on the back of 2 defeats in a row and it seems like they will have the same fate. Lazio were unlucky to lose their last weekend fixture against the reining champs Juventus, conceding the single goal of the match in the injury time. They have the best attack in the league with 64 goals netted in 27 matches and they need a win to secure their 4th place in the standings as Inter Milan are breathing down their necks just 1 point behind and a match in hand.

Best pick for the match: Lazio to win with -1AH at +115 with BetOnline.

Mainz vs. Schalke (Bundesliga – Round 26)

The battle for a top 6 finish and a European spot is getting more and more intense in the German top-flight league with 5 teams being separated by just 4 points at the top of the table. Schalke are an amazing young side with a great coach, an attacking-minded team with quality players. We have all the reasons to back them in this game against a poor Mainz side. Schalke should have enough to extend their 3-match winning streak and the bookies are offering a huge price for their win.

Best pick for the match: Schalke to win at +110 with BetCRIS.
