Europe’s top leagues are all winding down and there are now just a handful of fixtures before the summer break, when attention turns to the World Cup. But there are still some big games worth taking a look at this weekend.

Juventus can wrap up the Serie A title by claiming a point in this game. Massimiliano Allegri’s men are six points clear of Napoli, with two games each left to play, and they will be mathematically assured of winning a seventh consecutive title if they draw with or beat Roma on Sunday. Roma are dangerous opponents, having gone all the way to the Champions League semi-finals this season, and they are third in Serie A. Juventus lost 3-1 here last season, but they should take encouragement from their 1-0 victory against Roma earlier this season. They are on a three-game winning streak and have the bit between their teeth, so they should be able to get a result here. Juventus-draw double chance looks good at -200 with William Hill, and Juventus draw no bet also appeals at +110 with William Hill.

Levante v Barcelona

Barcelona are on the brink of finishing the season with an unbeaten record, which would be a spectacular achievement. No team in the history of La Liga has ever pulled off such a feat – not the Real Madrid side of Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo and David Beckham, nor Pep Guardiola’s tiki taka playing Barcelona team or any other great collective to have graced the league over the years. Barca have done the hard work, remaining unbeaten against the likes of Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Valencia, and now they must simply hold their nerve against Levante and Real Sociedad. They wrapped up the title weeks ago, but becoming invincibles is a great prize, and they have been blowing opponents away of late. They battered Villarreal 5-1 in midweek, and they should be confident of another heavy victory against 16th placed Levante. They have never lost to Levante, and they have won their last seven meetings by a minimum of two goals. Barcelona -1.5 on the handicap lines looks really appealing at -112 with Pinnacle.

Southampton v Man City

Man City have been similarly dominant in their domestic league and they have already secured a record number of Premiership points and goals this campaign. They have a great chance to add to those tallies against 17th placed Southampton in their final game of the season. The Saints are all but assured of staying up, and they are unlikely to be able to live with Man City’s pace, movement, flair and incision. The Citizens have banged in a massive 105 goals this season, winning 31 of their 37 games, and they have been simply steamrollering teams of late. Man City half-time / full-time looks good in this game, priced at +110 with William Hill
