Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig: Borussia Dortmund to Win and BTTS - 5/2

Borussia Dortmund take on RB Leipzig at the Signal Iduna Park, with the Black and Yellow firmly in the hunt for a place in next season’s Champions League.

Dortmund are currently in the better form of the two, having won their last four league matches against the likes of Stuttgart, Werder Bremen, Union Berlin and Stuttgart, scoring 11 goals, whilst conceding three in the process.

Leipzig will have to win the early kick-off, otherwise, they face the prospect of surrendering their challenge for the league title before Bayern Munich take on Borussia Monchengladbach later on in the day.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side have won just two of their last four matches, beating Stuttgart 2-0 and Werder Bremen 4-1.

As things stand, Dortmund are the second top scorers in the Bundesliga with 66 goals in 31 matches, with Erling Haaland scoring 25 of these. The Black and Yellows’ achilles heel has been their defence which has leaked 42 goals.

The last time these two sides met was back in early January, where Dortmund beat Leipzig 3-1 at the Red Bull Arena, thanks to a goal from Jadon Sancho and a Haaland brace, with former Crystal Palace man Alexander Sorloth scoring a late consolation goal for the hosts.

Juventus vs AC Milan: Cristiano Ronaldo to Score First - 23/10

Third-placed Juventus take on fourth in the table AC Milan at the Juventus Stadium at the weekend in a crucial match in the race to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

The hosts have won three of their last five games, which includes last Sunday’s narrow 2-1 victory away at Udinese, where Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brace via goals in the 83rd and 89th minutes to rescue the Old Lady.

AC have won just one of their last three matches, following 2-1 and 3-0 losses to Sassuolo and Lazio before beating Benevento 2-0 on Saturday.

Lyon vs Lorient: Lyon to Win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 - 9/4

Fourth-placed Lyon take on 17th placed Lorient in Ligue 1 this weekend.

The hosts won last time out in a dramatic 3-2 victory over AS Monaco, but are missing several players due to injury and suspension, such as Memphis Depay, Maxence Caqueret, Mattia De Sciglio and Marcelo, with the latter three all being sent off last time out.

Lyon will have to rely on the likes of former Villarreal striker Karl Toko Ekambi who is having a good season so far, as the Cameroonian has scored 12 goals in 32 appearances this campaign.

Lorient come into this match with a decent record against the hosts, as they have won three of the last eight meetings between these two, however, they do have a poor defensive record this campaign, leaking 62 goals in 35 matches, which will give Lyon some confidence of winning the game despite having so many notable absentees.

Bayern Munich vs Borussia Monchengladbach: Robert Lewandowski to Score a Brace - 2/1

The final game on this list of European tips comes from the Bundesliga where Bayern Munich take on Borussia Monchengladbach in a game that could see the hosts crowned as champions.

Bayern are seven points ahead of Leipzig with just three matches to go, meaning that if Leipzig drop points at Dortmund in the early kick-off on Saturday, then Hansi Flick’s side will be the champions of Germany for a 31st time regardless of the outcome of this match.

Flick’s side are coming into this match on the back of a shock 2-1 defeat at Mainz where Lewandowski scored a late consolation goal for Bayern. The pole is the man in focus here, as he Bayern’s top scorer with 43 goals in 34 matches this season. The pole has scored three goals in his last three appearances against Gladbach and is priced at 2/1 to score a brace against them on Saturday.

Marco Rose’s side have a poor defensive record against Bayern, having leaked 18 goals against Bayern in the last six times that they have played the champions.
