Tottenham Try to Salvage Disappointing Season on Sunday
Tottenham failed to meet the expectations this season but they can still salvage the year if they defeat Leicester at home. The two teams are separated by only four points and if the hosts close the gap, they could play in the Champions League next year. They don’t have players injured or suspended, but because of their lack of consistency, bet365 Sports prices a home win at 13/10. Leicester will aim for a narrow margin victory but any triumph for the visitors will pay at 21/10 at the same bookmaker.
Bournemouth Play for their Premier League Lives
This is the most important match of the season for Bournemouthand they will treat it accordingly. Anything short of victory over Southampton will send them to the Championship, but victory is no guarantee for survival. bet365 Sports credits them with the first chance but still offers odds of 13/10 because of their poor form. The visitors lack any motivation as they are safe from the specter of relegation and as a result get odds of 9/5.
Napoli Goes for Crushing Win Over Udinese
888 Sport expects Napoli to pick up all three points against Udinese, in a match they must win to retain their Europa League chances. Recent results were disappointing, but the hosts have no injury concerns ahead of this fixture and play against a team that lacks motivation. Under these circumstances, odds of 1/2 on the home side to win are reasonable, yet 5/1 on the visiting team is not of value to frown upon.
AS Roma and Inter Play the Serie A Derby
AS Roma and Inter used to play some really exciting derbies, but the match scheduled at 8:45 PM UK time lacks the glamour. 12 points separate the two teams, so even if the home side prevails, the impact in the standings will be minimal. 888 Sport offers odds of 2/1 on the hosts to win and consolidate their fifth-place, while pricing the visitors at 13/10 to extend their strong performance on the road.
Sevilla and Valencia Chase a European League Spot
Sevilla and Valencia were difficult to defeat at home, but this time Valencia will play on the road. This will put a lot of pressure on an already inconsistent team and have them start as underdogs on Sunday evening. The match begins at 8 PM UK time and the home side will come out firing on all cylinders, while the visitors are expected to play it safe and try to defend the scoreless draw.
