Valencia saw their two-match winning run come to an end last weekend when they visited Las Palmas, the worst defensive side in La Liga (47 goals conceded in 20 rounds), a poor team fighting to avoid relegation. Valencia suffered a shocking defeat, losing 2 important defenders red-carded against Las Palmas. Valencia are still holding themselves 3rd in the standings, but Real Madrid are breathing down their necks sitting just 5 points behind them and having a game in hand. Valencia have lost just one game this season in front of their fans, conceding 6 goals in 10 home fixtures. Los Blancos destroyed Deportivo La Coruna 7-1 last week, with both Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a brace. Real are out of the Spanish top-flight league title race, but they should win this match in order to secure their 4th position in the standings and close the gap on the top spots. Zinedine Zidane’s job is under pressure as he acknowledged that he is responsible for the poor results and needs to find a solution. With Bale and Ronaldo back in the squad after being rested in the mid-week Copa del Rey match against Leganes, Real Madrid should be able to dominate the match and give their fans something to cheer for.

Best pick for the match: Real Madrid to win and over 2.5 goals at +100 with Coral.

Marseille vs. AS Monaco (Ligue 1 – Round 23)

This match is the clash of the weekend in the French top-flight league, and we expect a thrilling encounter, a very intense match between 2 attacking-minded teams fighting for the Champions League spots. Monaco are just 1 point behind Marseille and enter this match full of confidence after winning their last 4 head-to-heads in all competitions against their opponents. Their last 7 mutual encounters produced at least 3 goals. Marseille are coming after 4 league wins in a row scoring, 10 goals in the process and conceding just 1. Monaco are unbeaten in their last 7 Ligue 1 fixtures and will be eager to extend this run and return home with the three points to secure their 3rd place in the standings and maintain the pressure on Lyon. The best betting approach is the “goals market” as both sides are scoring goals for fun being among the best attacking sides in their domestic league.

Best pick for the match: Over 2.5 goals in the game at -133 with Betfair.

AC Milan vs. Lazio (Serie A – Round 22)

As we expected and predicted, AC Milan made it 2 wins in a row winning last round against Cagliari 2-1 on the road. What we don’t understand is why the bookies have them as favorites against Lazio this weekend. Maybe just because they will play in front of their fans, but given their season performance they will have a difficult match against the best attacking side in the Serie A. Lazio enter this match in great shape being unbeaten in their last 6 domestic league fixtures, winning 4 in the process. They have a solid squad with quality players, and their attack is amazing with Ciro Immobile leading the Serie A top scorers chart with 20 goals scored so far. We expect an away win, but we will cover ourselves with the DNB (Draw No Bet) option.

Best pick for the match: Lazio to win with DNB at +115 with Pinnacle.
