THERE are only five games in the UK today as well as full cards in Spain, Germany and France so my focus with the top tips lies on the Continent.
As I did last week I’m not putting up my full Daily Record predictions because for the paper I’ve mixed up Saturday and Sunday matches.
I’ve tried to focus on teams with something to play for but there are others at home and who will want to finish on a high.
For the Super Single I’ve gone with Partick Thistle at a Motherwell side who will give fringe men a chance ahead of their Championship play-off final first leg against Rangers or Hibs on Thursday.
Boss Ian Baraclough won’t want to risk his star men for the biggest game of their season and as long as the Jags with nothing to play give it their full attention there’s no reason why they can’t beat Well for the third time this season.
On Friday I thought I’d found a value btts in Bohemians v Bray. Stats backed it up but the sides drew a blank – and I was a couple of goals short on the Top treble too.
Marseille -1 starts the Top Treble and after three wins in a row they should convincingly beat Bastia. Clinching fourth spot ahead of Monaco is unlikely but there is a chance the principality could slip up at Lorient side finishing well and firing in the goals.
Most of the focus in the Bundesliga is on the battle to avoid the drop with six sides still in with a chance of going down. At the other end Wolfsburg and Borussia M’gladbach are fighting for second spot with the Wolves two points in front.
Gladbach have won four in a row and should put the pressure on Wolfsburg at Cologne by winning at home to Augsburg.
I don’t like taking teams who have wrapped up the title but PSG will be looking to put on a show in front of a big crowd as they wrap up the season with a home clash against lowly Reims. PSG have hit 19 in five and should cover the -1 handicap even though Zlatan Ibrahimovic won’t be risked ahead of next week’s cup final as he’s carrying a knock.
Marseille to win and Gladbach are on the homes along with Dortmund who are finishing well and Real Madrid -1. Again Real’s season is over but their fans don’t allow them to take their foot off the gas and I expect a big win against a Getafe side who they’ve hit four past on the last four meetings between the sides at the Bernabeu.
