It’s a cracking weekend of exciting matches across Europe. We’ve looked at the odds and stats and came up with Top 5 Bets of the Weekend for you to consider. Bet on these games here. 

Everton v Crystal Palace – Everton Win – 1.65

Everton pulled off a spectacular comeback at Vicarage Road last week, coming from 2-0 down to beat Watford 3-2 despite playing the final 20 minutes with ten men. The Toffees have lost just one of their ten Premier League matches since Marco Silva was sacked in early December. The hosts are unbeaten in their last ten Premier League matches against Crystal Palace. The Eagles have lost their last two games and are winless in their last six league games, winning just once in their last ten.

Bayer Leverkusen v Borussia Dortmund – Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals – 1.50

Dortmund can make it four wins in a row in the Bundesliga when they visit Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday. Dortmund have scored Over 2.5 Goals in six of their last seven Bundesliga fixtures. Five of the last seven meetings between these two have seen three or more goals. Leverkusen’s last four games have seen at least three goals. Four of the last seven games between these two have seen both teams find the net. The hosts have kept just three clean sheets at home this season in the league while Dortmund have kept two away from home.

Parma v Lazio – Lazio Win – 1.75

Lazio can put more pressure on Juventus and Inter Milan at the top of Serie if they beat Parma on Sunday. Lazio have beaten Parma seven times in a row. Lazio have won 13 of their last 17 Serie A games and have not tasted defeat since losing 1-0 to Inter in late September.

Inter Milan v AC Milan – Inter Win – 1.95

Inter Milan can complete the double over their bitter rivals AC Milan in a highly anticipated showdown on Sunday night. Inter have beaten Milan three times in a row in the Serie A. Stefano Pioli’s side have significantly improved the last few weeks but there remains an indisputable gap between them and their local rivals. Taking into account that Inter are challenging for the title, they have an edge in this one.

Bayern Munich v RB Leipzig – Bayern Munich Win and Over 2.5 Goals – 1.60

Defending Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich will play host to the title challengers, RB Leipzig, in the Bundesliga at the Allianz Arena on Sunday evening. The reigning champions have won the last six league matches in a row. They have beaten Leipzig in six of the last nine meetings. With 111 goals in their 40 games combined this season, Bayern and Leipzig are certainly not shy in front of goal. Nine of Leipzig’s last ten games and all of Bayern’s last ten league games have seen Over 2.5 Goals.
