Borrusia Monchengladbach (win) v Frieburg @ $1.85
Borussia-Park, 11.30pm Saturday
The boys are back in town! Gladbach are finally starting to resemble somewhat of a football side. And Hecking’s men love battering spastics on their home turf, winning 7 from 9 against teams outside the top seven at Borussia-Park. All signs point to a home win and $1.80 is nothing to baulk at for such a dead cert. On paper, Gladbach are a talented outfit, it was just about bringing it all together and they should be in good spirits after only losing two from their last nine. Freiburg will go to water with the pressure of relegation and the fact that prior to their win over bottom placed Koln last weekend, they had scored only once and picked up one point in their previous seven matches. With a bit of an injury list to add to their concerns, this mob could be sunk like a U-boat.
Celta Vigo v Deportivo (BTTS) @ $1.60
Balaidos, 2.30am Sunday
Deportivo’s relegation was confirmed last week which cements Celta’s place as Galician derby top dog, despite not being great of late (1 win from 8) but reliably finding the back of the net, led by World Cup bound Iago Aspas. Both of these teams are top heavy, which is why I’ve opted for BTTS in a game where pride is on the line and I think it will open up quite early. Depor will want to go out with a bang and put on a show for the traveling fans. They put two past Barca last weekend so they are good for it, with Arsenal boy Perez looking more settled at his former club.
Leeds (win) v QPR @ $2.10
Elland Road, 9.30pm Sunday
Bit of a nothing game in the grand scheme of things but Leeds strong fan base should sing them over the line for a win here with $2.10 being too good to pass up. They promised so much but now linger in mid-table obscurity as they will look to next season to try and address on-field issues and return to the glory days. QPR have been dire on the road, the boys getting too caught up in the London nightlife and trying to get rid of the bad smell Adel Taarabt left around the sheds. Ian Holloway’s men have the third worst away record in the league with only five sides having conceded more than QPR. Holloway is also experimenting with a few young lads and he’s also giving opportunities to some youth players to get first team action so the writing is on the wall for a home win.
AZ Alkmaar (win) v Zwolle @ $1.50
AFAS Stadion, 10.30pm Sunday
AZ will look to brush off their cup defeat and finish the season strong and eventually clinching third place with a win here against Zwolle who have been out of touch in the second half of the season. AZ have the league’s top scorer in their ranks (Jahanbakhsh), the side producing over 2.5 goals in their last six matches and for Zwolle, it’s been duck eggs in their last two games. There’ll be 17,000 crazy Dutch bastards backing the home side which has been overall a successful campaign for AZ who once featured Aussie darling Brett Holman. This one’s for you Brett.
Barcelona (win and over 2.5) v Real Madrid @ $2.00
Camp Nou, 4.45am Monday
With nothing to play for in La Liga, tired legs and using up all nine lives, Madrid aren’t looking too crash hot for this fixture. Although it’s an El Clasico and little motivation is needed to get up for such games, Madrid will be looking to focus on the Champions League final and just want to come out of this unscathed. They also haven’t played great football during their Champions League journey and have shown their vulnerabilities. Especially at the back, and this where they also have a few injury concerns with Vazquez likely to fill in at right-back for Carvajal and Nacho to replace the injured Varane at centre-back. Barca on the other hand have just completed the double and will top it off here with an Clasico win at the Camp Nou. Messi and Suarez will have seen the amount of chances Bayern were afforded and will back themselves to latch on to a few where we could see a high-scoring affair. Messi coming off three goals last weekend could once again do the damage to top off an outstanding personal season with 43 goals overall and at times, single-handedly being the difference. Just to further add weight to this leg, 12 of the last 13 Clasicos have ended in over 2.5 goals.
