Valencia v Athletic Bilbao – Draw at 21/10

Valencia CF v Olympique Lyonnais - UEFA Champions League - Group H - Mestalla Stadium

What a turnaround Gary Neville has achieved in recent weeks, as his Bats have now won each of their last four matches in all competitions, after being without a victory for the first nine of the England coach’s tenure in La Liga.

However, Valencia now face a clash with a team they have just been drawn in the Europa League in mid-March, and a side who are also five points and three places above them in the table.

The duo have drawn in three of their last four meetings at the Mestalla, and that outcome seems likely once more.

Ajax v AZ Alkmaar – El-Ghazi scores anytime at 11/8

Soccer - Dutch Eredivisie - AZ Alkmaar v Ajax Amsterdam - AFAS Stadium

While Ajax and AZ may be next to each other in the Eredivisie table, in second and third respectively, there is a whopping 18 points gap between them.

Both teams are in a great run of form, but young attacker Anwar El-Ghazi has certainly enjoyed facing Alkmaar, having scored three times in as many games for the Amsterdam team against them.

Barcelona v Sevilla – Total match goals over 4.5 at 7/5

Soccer - La Liga - Sevilla CF vs FC Barcelona - Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium

Current Champions League and Europa League title holders Barcelona and Sevilla respectively go head-to-head in La Liga, and it certainly promising to be an entertaining affair.

Barca may be 23 points above the Yellow Submarine in La Liga, but the duo always put on a show for the fans, with five of their last eight clashes producing five or more goals.

Juventus v Inter Milan – Morata scores anytime at 7/4

Italy Soccer Serie A

Another belter of a match on Sunday sees Italian giants Juve and Inter lock horns, with the duo chasing the title and a Champions League spot.

The Turin team are 10 points and four places above the Milan outfit, and are unbeaten in their last seven against them making them the odds-on match favourites.

But, for a more tempting price, back former Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata to get at least a fourth goal in as many games against Inter Milan.

Lyon v PSG – Parisians wins and both teams score at 14/5

Paris Saint-Germain v Chelsea - UEFA Champions League - Round of 16 - First Leg - Parc des Princes

Finally, we will witness a a battle between fallen giants Lyon and current dominant titans PSG late on Sunday evening in Ligue 1.

This will incredibly be the French duo’s fifth head-to-head already this term, although the first at the Stade de Gerland, but unfortunately for the hosts they lost all the others and are a ridiculous 34 points off the pace.

However, five of their last seven meetings has seen both team score, so back that to occur once more and Paris win.
