1. Diogo Jota (Wolves) to score v Fulham (15:00)
Jota has scored in four of Wolves’ last five games, hitting the woodwork twice in his one blank against Brighton a fortnight ago.
The Portuguese also netted in last week’s win at Watford, and ranks a close second to Raul Jimenez for xG since the pair started playing upfront together at the turn of the year.
Fulham had conceded at least twice in seven consecutive away matches before winning 1-0 at Bournemouth a fortnight ago, a game in which they were fortunate to keep a clean sheet.
2. BTTS in MK Dons v Mansfield Town (15:00)
This is the game of the weekend in League Two, with the winner earning automatic promotion to the third tier.
MK Dons have only failed to score in one of their last eight home games, keeping a clean sheet in just three of those ties.
Opponents Mansfield have netted in three consecutive away matches, with BTTS landing in six of their last eight games overall.
3. Newport to beat Morecambe (15:00)
Newport climbed to seventh in League Two following a 2-0 victory to home to Oldham in midweek.
That was the Exiles’ fourth victory in five and ninth game without defeat, meaning they just need to win to secure a spot in the play-offs.
Morecambe are finishing the season well, winning back-to-back games against Cheltenham and Cambridge, but have won just three of their 13 games against the current top seven this season.
4. Crystal Palace to beat Cardiff (17:30)
Crystal Palace beat Arsenal 3-2 at the Emirates in their last away game and come into this with four victories from their last five on the road.
The Eagles’ away record is the sixth-best in the Premier League, so they represent great value against a Cardiff side who have lost 10 out of 18 at home.
The hosts have taken just seven points from their last nine league games at the Cardiff City Stadium and could be relegated with another defeat on Saturday.
5. Alaves to win or draw v Real Sociedad (17:30)
Alaves have drawn nine home games this season, with two of their three defeats at the Mendizorrotza coming against Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.
The eighth-placed side have the added incentive of a potential European berth, with a win putting them in contention for sixth.
Opponents Sociedad have won just five away matches this season, with their last victory coming in early January.
6. Celta Vigo not to beat Barcelona (19:45)
Barcelona are surprisingly big underdogs here, presumably on the basis that they will rest their entire first XI between Champions League semi-final legs against Liverpool.
Ernesto Valverde’s side drew 0-0 at Huesca when he did the same between quarter-final ties against Manchester United, while a side that did not include Sergio Busquets or Lionel Messi from the start overcame Levante on Saturday.
They have to be backed to avoid defeat at Celta Vigo, who have only won three of their nine home matches against top-half sides this season.
7. Houston Dynamo to beat FC Dallas (21:00)
Houston coasted to a 2-0 victory over Columbus Crew last Sunday to move to fifth in the Western Conference.
The Oranges have won five of their last six games in the MLS and lost just one of their opening seven – away to in-form LA Galaxy.
Dallas beat Atlanta United 2-1 last time out on the road, but they had previously lost four of their last five away games in the league.
8. BTTS in Chelsea v Watford (14:00)
The last five meetings between these sides have all seen goals at both ends, with Watford’s last two trips to Stamford Bridge finishing 4-2 and 4-3 to the hosts.
BTTS has landed in each of the Hornets’ last 10 matches in all competitions, with the only exception a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal in which they were reduced to 10 men early on but still created plenty of chances to score.
Chelsea have scored in eight of their last 10 Premier League matches, and have failed to keep clean sheets in their last three games against Liverpool, Burnley and Manchester United.
9. Andy Delort (Montpellier) to score v Amiens (14:00)
Delort has scored three goals in his last two games, taking his tally for the season to 14.
Only Kylian Mbappe has taken more shots per Ligue 1 game than the 27-year-old this season, while he ranks fifth for xG.
Amiens lost 3-2 at Nantes in their last away game, the fourth time in seven away matches that they have conceded at least twice.
10. Frankfurt to win or draw v Leverkusen (17:00)
Frankfurt kept hold of fourth place in the Bundesliga last weekend following a 0-0 draw away to Hertha, meaning they have lost just one of their last 14 league games.
The race for fourth means the visitors are unlikely to rest players and, having lost just three of their 15 away games this season, look good value for at least a point.
Leverkusen are in good form themselves, having won three on the spin, but their only victory in three at the BayArena came against second-bottom Nuremberg a fortnight ago.
