Brentford to beat Bournemouth (12:30)

Brentford come into the second leg 1-0 down after losing a tight affair at Bournemouth, but their record at home suggests they are capable of overturning that deficit.

The Bees had the third-best home record in the Championship behind the promoted duo of Norwich and Watford, having lost just two games out of 23.

They also beat the Cherries 2-1 at home in December. Bournemouth, meanwhile, finished the regular season with three straight defeats, including a 1-0 loss at home to Brentford in April.

Dortmund to beat Leverkusen (14:30)

Dortmund are finishing the Bundesliga season brilliantly and have won seven games on the spin in all competitions.

Edin Terzic’s side have won four straight games at the Westfalenstadion and should bank another three points against poor travellers.

Leverkusen have won just one of their last 11 away games in all competitions.

Stuttgart to beat Arminia Bielefeld (14:30)

Stuttgart pulled off a shock last weekend as they came from behind to beat Europe-chasing Borussia Monchengladbach 2-1 away from home.

Pellegrino Matarazzo’s side have won back-to-back games and look a great price to make it three from three.

Arminia Bielefeld have won just two away games in 17 this season and have failed to score in their last three.

Eastleigh to beat Boreham Wood (15:00)

Eastleigh beat Aldershot 3-1 on Tuesday evening to keep themselves in the fight for a play-off spot with three games to go.

The Spitfires have won five of their last six matches, including three out of three at home.

Boreham Wood are in decent form themselves, but have nothing to play for and – at odds-against – are worth taking on.

Sampdoria to beat Parma (19:45)

Bottom-of-the-league Parma have already been relegated and are dropping out of Serie A with a whimper.

Roberto D’Aversa’s side have lost eight straight matches and are winless in their last 14 away games.

Sampdoria have won four of their last seven, while their only defeat in four came against champions Inter.


Bayern Munich v Augsburg (14:30)

Bayern drew 2-2 at Freiburg last week, their ninth Bundesliga match in 13 that has seen both teams score.

The champions have also won 3-1, 4-1, 4-1, 5-1 and 4-0 on the final day of the last five seasons.

They take on Augsburg, who have scored in 10 of their last 14 away games.

Osasuna v Real Sociedad (17:00)

BTTS has landed in five of Osasuna’s last six games and a final-day dead rubber should guarantee more goals here.

The hosts’ last three matches have finished 2-2, 3-2 and 2-1.

Real Sociedad beat Valladolid 4-1 last week, with BTTS landing in seven of their last 10.

BTTS: No in Swansea v Barnsley (18:30)

The first leg of this tie finished 1-0 to Swansea, with quality in front of goal in short supply.

The Swans have scored and conceded in just three of their last 13 matches.

BTTS has landed in just one of Barnsley’s last seven games, a dead rubber against Norwich on the last day of the regular season.


Athletic Bilbao to win or draw v Elche & under 4.5 goals (17:00)

Elche have everything to play for going into the final weekend of the La Liga season, needing to better Huesca’s results to survive relegation, so their price to win is distorted.

The hosts are odds-on to win this game despite winning just three of their last 15 at home.

The value is with Bilbao, who have lost three of their last 16 away games, with under 4.5 goals landing in all but one.


Sasa Kalajdzic (Stuttgart) to score v Arminia Bielefeld (14:30)

Kalajdzic is one of the success stories of the Bundesliga season, scoring 16 goals for mid-table Stuttgart.

The striker has netted in both of his last two matches, and ranks sixth for xG in the division.

Only four teams have conceded more goals than Arminia on the road this season.
