With two Serie A fixtures across ESPN and BT Sport and a La Liga clash available online for Sky Sports customers, there is plenty of fuel for a Bank holiday treble.
Combining the three recommendations below will provide bwin.com customers with a combination paying out at just a shade under 13/2…
Lazio v Verona – Over 1.5 second-half goals @ 4/5
While places one-to-four in Serie A were claimed with little fuss, the opposite is true of fifth and sixth, the final Europa League spots.
Inter and Torino are in possession with 57 and 55 points, Parma and AC Milan are right behind on 54 and Verona and Lazio remain in contention with 52 and this game in hand, so both require all three points.
Lazio and Verona have scored 12 and 13 goals respectively over their last five Serie A matches, leaking nine and six, so an overs bet is the way to go, especially as the reverse fixture served up five.
Over 1.5 second-half goals is a plumper price at 4/5 than the straight-up over 2.5 goals offering of 11/20, and paid out in four of Lazio’s last six encounters.
Juventus v Atalanta – Juventus to lead at half time and full time @ 8/13
Roma’s shock 1-4 hammering at then-bottom club Catania confirmed Juventus as scudetto winners for the third year in a row – their strongest sequence since 1935 – but there is plenty still to play for.
Seven points from their final three games will lift Antonio Conte’s heroes to the 100-point mark, and a record of 17 victories from 17 Serie A home outings in 2013/14 suggests that the coach’s former employers Atalanta won’t disrupt their pursuit.
The Old Lady have been ahead at half time and full time in nine of their last ten league clashes at the Juventus Stadium, while Atalanta have trailed at the interval in three of their last four matches.
Real Sociedad v Granada – Real Sociedad to win to nil @ 31/20
La Liga matchday 36 has produced a favourite-thwarting spree comparable only to Sunderland’s recent road trips, with each of the top three denied wins, yet it is difficult to see Real Sociedad failing to triumph at 1/2.
The Basque club have the best home figures outside the top four, prevailing in 11 of their 17 Anoeta collisions; five of their last nine league visitors were shut out and two of the exceptions were Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Granada have volunteered themselves as relegation candidates by losing five of their last six games and scoring just twice in the process; they have taken one point from their last nine away dates, firing six blanks.
