The Perfect 10 – 162/1 acca
15:00 – Plymouth Argyle vs Hull City (League One)
Betting tip: Hull City to win
Plymouth are one of the few sides in League One with neither relegation concerns or promotion hopes and with motivation a possible issue, Hull could capitalise at Home Park. Argyle were swept aside 3-0 at Shrewsbury on Monday and Saturday’s contest against Hull looks an even tougher prospect.
15:00 – Bolton Wanderers vs Harrogate Town (League Two)
Betting tip: Bolton to win
Bolton’s promotion charge hit a couple of bumps over Easter with disappointing results at home to Colchester (0-0) and away to Newport (0-1) but Ian Evatt’s side can get back to business against Harrogate. The end of the campaign cannot come soon enough for Harrogate, who have taken one point from their last five assignments.
15:00 – Derby County vs Norwich City (Championship)
Betting tip: Norwich City to win
Norwich City demolished Huddersfield Town 7-0 in their last outing and the Canaries are playing with the swagger of potential title winners. Derby meanwhile, have won only once of their last nine games, and the Rams could be second-best again against a rampant City team.
16:00 – Strasbourg vs PSG (Ligue 1)
Betting tip: PSG to win
PSG are hunting down Lille at the top of Ligue 1 and the defending French champions can close in on the league leaders with a win at Strasbourg. It’s not often you get the Parisians priced at near evens for any game in their homeland and the hosts have won only once in their last six on home soil.
17:00 – Galatasaray vs Fatih Karagumruk (Turkish Super Lig)
Betting tip: Galatasaray to win
Galatasaray have lost ground in the Super Lig title race, though the Cimbom can find their feet again at home to newly promoted Fatih Karagumruk. Gala’s Istanbul rivals have won only one of their last six games on the road and they should find it tough to match their host’s quality.
17:00 – Parma vs AC Milan (Serie A)
Betting tip: AC Milan to win
Saturday’s game at the Ennio Tardini Stadium pits the worst performing home team against Serie A’s best performing away side, and AC Milan can leave Parma disappointed hosts again. The Rossoneri are targeting their fourth away victory on the spin, and Parma look ill-equipped to offer much resistance.
18:00 – Finn Harps vs Waterford United (Irish Premier Division)
Betting tip: Finn Harps to win
Finn Harps are the early pace setters in the Irish Premier Division after their seven-point haul from the campaign’s first three games, and Ollie Horgan’s troops can maintain their positive start at Waterford’s expense. United have lost on each of their last three visits to play Harps at Ballybofey.
19:00 – AZ Alkmaar vs Sparta Rotterdam (Eredivisie)
Betting tip: AZ Alkmaar to win
AZ are neck and neck with PSV in the race to finish as the Eredivisie’s runners-up behind Ajax this season, and Alkmaar can strengthen their push for second against Sparta Rotterdam. AZ have won four games in a row on their own patch – a run that included superb wins over Feyenoord and PSV – and they can harness home advantage again on Saturday.
19:45 – Gent vs Charleroi (Belgian First Division A)
Betting tip: Gent to win
Gent have lost just one of their last nine fixtures at home, and they were much the better team when they beat Charleroi 3-1 in the cup there back in February. Charleroi are winless in eight matches, and with confidence in their camp low, they shouldn’t be expected to exact any revenge for their cup elimination in Saturday’s league clash.
20:30 – Pacos Ferreira vs Benfica (Primeira Liga)
Betting tip: Benfica to win
Benfica were dismayed at their Europa League exit to Arsenal, though their domestic form has benefited from their continental exit. As Aguias have won six games on the bounce, including five successive Primeira Liga victories, and their momentum should see them over the line at Pacos Ferreira.
