Newcastle are seeking their 1st EPL home win since October 2017, but their record against Manchester United is showing just 1 win in their last 13 home mutual encounters. If we are talking only about the home matches, Newcastle are bottom of the league with just 13 points earned in 13 games on their turf, having the 2nd-worst attack with just 11 goals scored in front of their fans. The Red Devils have kept 7 clean sheets in their last 8 fixtures in having the best defense in the English top-flight league with just 18 goals conceded in 26 rounds. This is a must win for the visitors and we expect them to go all in against a poor Newcastle side.

Best pick for the match: Manchester United to win with -0.75 Asian Handicap at -113.

St. Etienne vs. Marseille (Ligue 1 – Round 25)

The battle for the title is over in the French Ligue 1 with PSG being 11 points clear at the top of the table. There is still something to fight for as 2nd and 3rd place will play in Champions League next year. Marseille are sitting 2nd in the standings, winning 8 of their last 9 matches in all competitions. They have an amazing attacking firepower with Florian Thauvin being brilliant in front of the net and Dimitri Payet delivering some amazing assists. They are just 1 point above 3rd -placed AS Monaco, so they give 100% to win this clash and secure 2nd place. Despite being just 4 points above the red zone, the hosts enter this match determined to win the 3rd consecutive match in front on their fans. Marseille are unbeaten in their last 9 head-to-head against St. Etienne, winning 5 games in the process.

Best pick for the match: Marseille to win at -113.

Malaga vs. Atletico Madrid (La Liga – Round 23)

Under Diego Simeone, Atletico Madrid remain the best defensive side in La Liga with just 9 goals conceded in 22 rounds. Malaga will probably fail to avoid relegation as they are sitting last in the standings, 7 points behind the 1st salvation spot. They’ve netted just 14 goals this season, having the worst attack in the league. This match should be a walk in the park for Simeone’s boys, a game in which they should dominate from the 1st whistle and win it without any problems. They will have an eye also on next week’s Europa League away match in Denmark against Copenhagen, so they will not push for more than 3 goals.

Best pick for the match: Atletico Madrid to win and under 3.5 goals.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs. FC Koln (Bundesliga – Round 22)

After a poor start to their 2017-2018 Bundesliga campaign, FC Koln have been impressive in the 2nd half of the season by recording 3 wins and 1 draw in their last 5 matches, but they are still sitting last place in the standings 7 points behind the 1st salvation spot. They are desperate to win points and avoid relegation, but unfortunately for them they have a tough schedule playing 4 top 6 teams in their next 7 Bundesliga fixtures. Eintracht saw their 2-match winning run come to an end last round when they lost 0-3 at Augsburg so this match is the perfect opportunity for them to bounce back and give their fans something to cheer for.

Best pick for the match: Eintracht Frankfurt to win at -107.
