Sunday’s Bet of the Day features 2 sides in Italy and France who are away to relegated sides and who need the 3 points.
Parma vs Sassuolo
🇮🇹 Serie A
⏰ Sunday 16th May, 17:00
8th placed Sassuolo travel to the Tardini as they take on already relegated Parma. Whereas Parma have nothing to play for other than pride, Sassuolo will look to leapfrog Roma in 7th and qualify for the new Conference League.
Parma were left heartbroken last time out as they conceded late in stoppage time to be defeated 1-0 by Lazio. Parma have now lost their last 7 in a row conceding 21 goals. Parma have the worst home record in Serie winning only twice and losing 11 times. Only Benovento (38) have conceded more goals than Parma (36) at home in Serie A.
Before defeat last time out at home to Juventus, Sassuolo were unbeaten in 6 winning 5. Sassuolo have scored in 25 of their last 26 games and only the 5 sides who sit above them in the league (minus Lazio & Roma) have scored more than Sassuolo’s 30 away from home. Sassuolo have scored 10 goals away to the 5 sides directly above their bottom placed opponents.
Dijon vs Nantes
🇫🇷 Ligue 1
⏰ Sunday 16th May, 20:00
Already relegated Dijon take on 18th placed Nantes at the Stade Gaston-Gérard. While Dijon have nothing to play for other than pride, Nantes have the incentive that 3 points can see them jump out of the relegation play off spot which they currently occupy.
Dijon are on a horrendous run of form losing 15 of their last 16 Ligue 1 games. After consecutive 5-1 defeats away to Rennes and home to Metz, they also lost 3-0 last time out away to Angers. Unsurprisingly, Dijon have the worst home record in the division winning only 9 points out of a possible 54.
Not long ago Nantes looked doomed to relegation to Ligue 2. However, 3 wins on the bounce have certainly gave them a real chance of survival and another season in Ligue 1. Nantes have actually won more points on the road this season and have won 4 of their last 6 away in Ligue 1 including their last 2.
Bet of the Day
I’m backing entertaining Sassuolo to grab a couple of goals away to already relegated Parma who’ve conceded plenty goals not only recently but all season long. Then in France I’m backing Nantes to come away with a vital 3 points to already relegated Dijon.
- Sassuolo to score 2+ goals
- Nantes to win
- Double pays 11/10 (William Hill)
