Paris St Germain vs Marseille

Title-seeking Paris St-Germain have racked up the Ligue 1 goals since returning from the international break, beating Lorient 5-1 and Clermont 6-1 in their last two games, but they could face more of resistance against Marseille in Le Classique.

PSG’s formidable home record in the league this season – 14 wins and a draw from 15 games – coupled with the fact that Marseille had to travel more than 2,000km to Thessaloniki on Thursday means the Ligue 1 leaders are around 4-11 to take maximum points. .

But Marseille are set to return from Greece in high spirits after booking their place in the Europa Conference League semi-finals, extending their winning streak to eight matches in all competitions.

It’s only a matter of time before PSG are confirmed champions but they haven’t been without their flaws, losing to Nice, Real Madrid and Monaco since early March, and Marseille can at least avoid the defeat in the capital.

Sevilla v Real Madrid

At the start of the year, Sevilla were Real Madrid’s closest contender for the La Liga title but they are now 12 points behind Los Blancos ahead of their meeting at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Sunday.

The Andalusians are yet to secure Champions League football and earned a decent 4-2 win over Granada last time out, but they generally found goals hard to come by.

Sevilla have shot blanks in four of their last seven matches, although their defense is reliable, well organized by the much-admired duo of Jules Kounde and Diego Carlos.

With that in mind, they can focus on keeping things close against leaders Real, who could mix up their pack following Tuesday’s thrilling win over Chelsea. Saving less than 2.5 goals seems the way to go.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Leipzig

Bayer Leverkusen were held 0-0 by Bochum last Sunday and could struggle against revival Leipzig once again.

As well as guiding Leipzig to the semi-finals of the Europa League and German Cup, manager Domenico Tedesco, who arrived in December, has his side vying for a place in the top four in the Bundesliga.

They have seen Borussia Dortmund, Hoffenheim and Atalanta since early April and are looking for a value bet to win again at the BayArena.
