Celta Vigo vs. Real Madrid (La Liga Round 30) - Saturday 12:30 pm ET

Click Here for Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid Odds

Real Madrid may have put together the worst El Clasico performance in its history just before the international break, losing 4-0 to Barcelona. Let’s be honest, Barcelona could have scored at least two more goals in that match. What went wrong? The gap between leaders Real Madrid and second-placed Sevilla is huge (nine points) and the players were already thinking about the Champions League quarter-finals clash against Chelsea and the international break was just around the corner.

The Spanish giants have dominated their domestic league this season and they will definitely be crowned as champions at the end of the season but in case Barcelona wins against Sevilla this weekend and they drop points against Celta Vigo, the end of the season will be on fire.

Real Madrid is back in action this weekend when they face Celta Vigo in Galicia and they will be desperate to return to winning ways and approach the UCL clash against Chelsea full of confidence. They love playing against Celta Vigo. They are unbeaten in their last 11 head-to-heads against Celta Vigo winning eight games in the process, including a 5-2 victory in the reverse fixture.

They will be without Isco and Luka Jovic due to recent injuries, while Toni Kroos is doubtful. Ferland Mendy and Karim Benzema should both be fit following recent issues, which is a huge plus for Los Blancos. Celta has a lot of quality in the final third with Iago Aspas being their main threat but Real Madrid should have enough to add three more points to their season tally.

Leeds vs. Southampton (Premier League Round 31) - Saturday 10:00 AM ET

Click Here for Leeds vs Southampton Odds

Leeds will be looking to make it three wins in a row under their new manager Jesse Marsch. They picked up six crucial points in their previous two games and they are now seven points above the drop zone. They produced a superb comeback to beat Wolves 3-2 last time out. Still not safe, Leeds must win at least two more games in order to earn their Premier League tickets for next season.

Leeds has the worst defense in the league with 67 goals allowed in 30 games (2+ goals conceded per match). On top of that, they failed to keep a clean sheet at Elland Road in the league since November, so they could not have picked a better time to face a Southampton side who enters this clash on the back of three defeats in a row.

The international break was gold for Ralph Hasenhuttl's side who ended the month of March with zero EPL points to their name. It’s time for the Saints to return to winning ways but this is a tricky contest against a revived Leeds. Later this month, Southampton will play two top-four sides, Chelsea and Arsenal so they will be eager to build some confidence.

We’ve seen low-scoring affairs in the recent head-to-heads between the two sides but we are going against the bookies here. Both are playing positive football and having an attacking approach so we’re going with the Alex Classic.

Lazio vs. Sassuolo (Serie A Round 31) - Saturday 12:00 pm ET

Click Here for Lazio vs Sassuolo Odds

Tammy Abraham scored after only a minute in the Derby della Capitale, a goal that sunk Lazio, who failed to get involved in the game for the remainder of it. The mindset is probably the main reason for Lazio’s spot in the standings. With their squad they should be fighting for a top-four finish, instead, they are fighting for the Conference League spot.

Still, Ciro Immobile, who’s on everyone's lips, and not in a good way, after Italy got knocked out by North Macedonia from the World Cup qualifiers, is the Serie A joint top-scorer with 21 goals netted this season. If you love your props, then him, together with Sassuolo’s attacking duo Domenico Berardi and Gianluca Scamacca and the one to bet on for the ‘anytime goalscorer market.

This match should be closer than the odds suggest with Sassuolo being in great shape and having great attacking firepower. We expect them to pull off the upset (which in our book it’s not exactly an upset) and return home with at least one point. For the official pick, we are going with goals as we expect at least three of them.
