Genoa vs Verona
Both Genoa and Verona have been somewhat wasteful in front of goal this season with two of the lowest goal tallies in Serie A. The home side however has been able to fight into a mid-table spot thanks to a stingy defence keeping them in games and grinding out points. Verona on the other hand are letting in almost two goals per game. I can’t see either side doing too much going forward here and am backing the trend to continue with a low scoring contest.
Athletic Bilbao vs Levante
Levante are still alive in La Liga after Emmanuel Boateng’s late winner condemned Malaga to the second division but they are certainly not safe themselves. With this match they can drag Bilbao back into the relegation fight who are riding high after holding Madrid to a draw. Bilbao won the first meeting between these sides in December and with their recent form I like them to complete the double.
Everton vs Newcastle
Everton have won the last four meetings between these sides but are in a real form slump heading into the final Premier League match of the round. Newcastle on the other hand are flying high with wins in their last four matches, including a confidence booster over Arsenal last weekend. They are one of the in form sides in the Premier League at the moment and I am backing the Magpies to win here.
