THE SHOTS TO TAKE THIS WEEKEND

Friday is here, and depending on your definition of the weekend, we may be in it.

=====================================================

Friday, May 10, 2024

🇳🇱 Dennis Bergkamp turns 55, 🇫🇷 Sylvain Wiltord turns 50, 🇳🇬 Emmanuel Emenike turns 37, 🇧🇷 Richarlison (Brazil) – 27.

🇮🇹 Frosinone vs. Inter Milan (italian serie a)
Relegation-battling Frosinone faces a tough challenge as they host Inter Milan, who have nothing at stake after securing the league title but are coming off a defeat in their last match against Sassuolo. Inter Milan secured a 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture.

🇫🇷 Nice vs. Le Havre (french ligue 1)
Le Havre is looking for a result to avoid the possibility of finishing in a relegation playoff spot in Ligue 1. Their next opponent is Nice, a side they beat 3-1 in the reverse fixture. Replicating that result would be ideal for Le Havre, although they lack home advantage this time. Nice, meanwhile, is aiming to secure qualification for continental cup football.

🇵🇹 Chaves vs. Famalicão (portuguese primeira liga)
A win might not be enough to significantly bolster their slim chance of surviving relegation, but to keep some hope alive, Chaves will need a home victory against Famalicão.

 

Saturday, May 11, 2024

🇲🇽 Alberto García Aspe turns 57, 🇪🇸 Andrés Iniesta turns 40, 🇵🇹 Miguel Veloso turns 38, 🇫🇷 Abou Diaby turns 38, 🇲🇽 Giovani dos Santos turns 35, 🇧🇪 Thibaut Courtois turns 32, 🇪🇸 Pablo Sarabia turns 32.

🇪🇸 Mallorca vs. Las Palmas (spanish la liga)
Mallorca and Las Palmas are seeking additional points to distance themselves from the threat of relegation. The reverse fixture concluded in a ‘1-1’ draw, and neither team will wish to suffer a loss when they face each other again this weekend. Another draw would suffice for Las Palmas, but Mallorca will require more to bolster their advancement.

🇪🇸 Granada vs. Real Madrid (spanish la liga)
Granada, in desperate need of points, faces the toughest opponent in the league: Real Madrid, who will play their first game after being crowned league champions and advancing to another Champions League final. Real Madrid’s first action as champions could potentially relegate Granada.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Fulham vs. Manchester City (english premier league) –
Manchester City will be at Fulham, a side they thrashed 5-1 in the reverse fixture. Manchester City will become league champions for the 4th straight season by winning their next three league games.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Tottenham Hotspur vs. Burnley (english premier league)
🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 West Ham United vs. Luton Town (english premier league)
Burnley and Luton Town are both in need of crucial points, aiming for victories in London this weekend. Burnley’s survival hinges on defeating Tottenham, while Luton Town must secure a win against West Ham United to avoid relegation. Tottenham and West Ham United have not been in the best of form either, but they are not the teams under pressure in these fixtures.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Nottingham Forest vs. Chelsea (english premier league)
Nottingham Forest’s path to safety becomes automatic if both Burnley and Luton Town are defeated in their matches. A home victory for Nottingham Forest against Chelsea would effectively relegate both Luton Town and Burnley, bringing an end to the relegation race.
It will take some miraculous results to keep the relegation race in the Premier League going after this weekend’s round of matches.

🇮🇹 Napoli vs. Bologna (italian serie a)
Napoli is without a league win in four games, in a run of eight league games without a victory. They host a Bologna side contesting for Champions League qualification and a top-three finish.

🇮🇹 AC Milan vs. Cagliari (italian serie a)
Despite being poised to finish in second place, AC Milan has failed to win in their last six matches, with four of those being league games. They will be determined to avoid extending this winless streak to seven when they take on a Cagliari side aiming for points that would help their push out of a relegation battle.

🇩🇪 Borussia Mönchengladbach vs. Eintracht Frankfurt (german bundesliga)
Mönchengladbach is on the verge of mathematically removing themselves as an option for the relegation playoff spot. They will just need a positive result at home against Frankfurt.

🇩🇪 FC Köln vs. Union Berlin (german bundesliga)
FC Köln is battling against direct relegation, while Union Berlin seeks to avoid relegation playoffs. If Union Berlin leaves Cologne unbeaten, FC Köln will be relegated.

🇩🇪 Mainz vs. Borussia Dortmund (german bundesliga)
Mainz occupies the relegation playoff spot, and they are looking for the points to help them climb out of it. Mainz faces a daunting task as they host a Borussia Dortmund side riding high after qualifying for the Champions League final. The reverse meeting was a 1-1 draw.

🇵🇹 Portimonense vs. Rio Ave (portuguese primeira liga)
Portimonense occupies the relegation playoff spot and will seek points against Rio Ave to improve their chances of finishing their season above the relegation playoff spot.

🇵🇹 Vizela vs. Estrela da Amadora (portuguese primeira liga)
Estrela da Amadora is right above the relegation playoff spot and has a favorable opportunity to secure points against a Vizela side already relegated. Evidently, the points will help in seeing them finish the season ahead of the bottom three.

🇵🇹 Estoril vs. Sporting CP (portuguese primeira liga)
Estoril is practically safe, but mathematically, they can still fall into the relegation playoff position. They lost 5-1 in the reverse fixture, but Estoril might have a chance if Sporting CP arrives in a celebratory mood. Estoril will host Sporting CP, who were crowned league champions in the last round.

🇵🇹 Vitória de Guimarães vs. Braga (portuguese primeira liga)
Braga is battling for a third-place finish with Porto, while Vitória de Guimarães is challenging Braga for fourth place. Braga will travel to face Vitória de Guimarães this weekend.

 

Sunday, May 12, 2024

🇧🇷 Marcelo turns 36, 🇳🇱 Frenkie de Jong turns 27

🇪🇸 Cádiz vs. Getafe (spanish la liga)
A Getafe win is what the teams at the bottom end of the league table are hoping for, as it will help in keeping them safe from relegation threats. Cadiz will seek a home victory against Getafe to aid their ascent out of the relegation zone.

🇪🇸 Athletic Club vs. Celta Vigo (spanish la liga)
Celta Vigo, still in a battle to avoid relegation, faces a tough away fixture against Athletic Club, who are competing for the final Champions League qualification spot in the league.

🇪🇸 Valencia vs. Rayo Vallecano (spanish la liga)
Rayo Vallecano’s last trip to Valencia ended in a 1-1 draw. They will take the same or better at the moment to move them further out the slim threat of relegation.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Manchester United vs. Arsenal (english premier league)
Arsenal’s objective is to not drop any points and stay on pace with Manchester City in the title race. They will be in Manchester to seek points against Manchester City’s local rival; Manchester United, who are far off the pace in the title race and can potentially be heading for their worst season in recent history. However, Manchester United and Arsenal have a long-standing rivalry that could spark things up in this fixture.

🇮🇹 Lazio vs. Empoli (italian serie a)
Empoli, hovering above the relegation zone, faces a daunting task as they travel to Rome to face Lazio, who are battling for a Champions League spot or, at the very least, qualification for Europa League football.

🇮🇹 Genoa vs. Sassuolo (italian serie a)
While Genoa is gearing up for a mid-table finish, Sassuolo is striving to avoid relegation. To bolster their odds of escaping relegation, Sassuolo needs to accumulate points in their match against Genoa.

🇮🇹 Hellas Verona vs. Torino (italian serie a)
They are still in the battle to avoid relegation in Serie A, and Hellas Verona aims for a home victory against Torino to help them move further away from the danger zone.

🇮🇹 Juventus vs. Salernitana (italian serie a)
Juventus is looking to confirm their place in next season’s Champions League, and after playing four consecutive league draws, they have an opportunity to get back to winning when they host relegated Salernitana.

🇮🇹 Atalanta vs. Roma (italian serie a) –
The reverse fixture ended in a ‘1-1’ draw.
Atalanta and Roma are both on 60 points, chasing Champions League qualification in the league. Atalanta has a game in hand and is positioned ahead in the league standings. Atalanta comes into this match after securing a win against Marseille to advance to the Europa League final, while Roma was eliminated in the Europa League semi final by Bayer Leverkusen.

🇩🇪 Bochum vs. Bayer Leverkusen (german bundesliga)
Bochum, seeking points to distance themselves from the possibility of a relegation playoff spot, will host this season’s top team in the league, the champions, Bayer Leverkusen.
Bayer Leverkusen remains unbeaten this season and comes into this match after qualifying for this year’s Europa League final.

🇫🇷 Clermont vs. Lyon (french ligue 1)
Clermont’s best outcome for the season is to secure a spot in the relegation playoff, and that opportunity fades away this weekend if they don’t win. Even a win might not be enough to secure their desired outcome.

🇫🇷 Marseille vs. Lorient (french ligue 1)
Marseille presents a challenging venue for Lorient to garner the much-needed points to avoid a relegation that looks inevitable.

🇫🇷 Nantes vs. Lille (french ligue 1)
If Metz suffers a defeat at Strasbourg, the outcome of this game would become irrelevant to Nantes’s season. Nantes, aiming to extinguish the possibility of a relegation playoff, will host Lille, who are in pursuit of Champions League qualification.

🇫🇷 Strasbourg vs. Metz (french ligue 1)
Without a win at Strasbourg this weekend, Metz’s best possible outcome will be securing a relegation playoff spot. The reverse fixture resulted in a 1-0 defeat for Metz, and it won’t be any easier for them playing away from home.

🇳🇱 Excelsior vs. Heracles Almelo (dutch eredivisie)
Heracles Almelo has reached the necessary point threshold to avoid the relegation playoff, but they remain mathematically at risk due to their inferior goal difference. Heracles emerged victorious in the reverse fixture, so Excelsior is eager to settle the score. A draw won’t suffice for Excelsior but would be satisfactory for Heracles.

🇳🇱 RKC Waalwijk vs. PEC Zwolle (dutch eredivisie)
A relegation playoff spot remains an option for RKC Waalwijk, and they will aim to remove their name from contention. Securing a win at home against PEC Zwolle is imperative for RKC Waalwijk.

🇵🇹 Gil Vicente vs. Farense (portuguese primeira liga)
With only a slight risk of landing in a relegation playoff spot, Gil Vicente is striving for a home win to destroy the likelihood.

🇵🇹 Porto vs. Boavista (portuguese primeira liga)
Porto, battling for a 3rd place finish, will host a Boavista side that is fighting for points to avoid the relegation playoff.

 

Monday, May 13, 2024

🇺🇸 Oguchi Onyewu turns 42, 🇨🇮 Yaya Touré turns 41, 🇧🇪 Romelu Lukaku turns 31.

🇪🇸 Barcelona vs. Real Sociedad (spanish la liga) –
Barcelona will look to bounce back from last round’s defeat against Girona with a win at home over Real Sociedad. Barcelona will aim to finish this season in the best position possible (2nd), ensuring they don’t fall below Girona in the standings.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Aston Villa vs. Liverpool (english premier league) –
After a midweek Europa League defeat, where they were knocked out at the semifinal stage by Olympiacos, Aston Villa will return to the Premier League and strive for Champions League qualification by aiming for a positive result against Liverpool.
In the reverse fixture, Liverpool secured a 3-0 win. Currently, there is a 9-point gap between 3rd place Liverpool and 4th place Aston Villa. While there aren’t enough games left for a positional change, Aston Villa will aim to close the gap and confirm their position in 4th.

🇮🇹 Lecce vs. Udinese (italian serie a)
Lecce and Udinese will meet to compete for league points. Lecce finds themselves nearly free from relegation threat, while Udinese is currently in the relegation zone.

THE PREVIOUS ROUND IN EUROPE’S TOP 7 LEAGUES:

The top seven European league
With Real Madrid, PSV Eindhoven, and Sporting CP clinching the league title last weekend to join Bayer Leverkusen, Inter Milan, and Paris Saint-Germain, the English Premier League is now the only title race that hasn’t been decided.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 PREMIER LEAGUE
Arsenal maintains their lead, but they don’t have full control over their destiny. Manchester City, on the other hand, retains control of their fate, making them the frontrunners to clinch the league title for the fourth consecutive year.
Unless Tottenham manages to secure wins in their remaining games, the current top four teams are likely to maintain their positions.
Luton Town and Burnley face a challenging situation as they are unlikely to avoid relegation. Both teams cannot afford to drop points in their next two games if they want to retain their Premier League status.

🇪🇸 LA LIGA
Real Madrid clinched the La Liga title with four rounds to spare.
Girona rose to second place after defeating Barcelona, who dropped to third. This outcome sealed Real Madrid’s title victory, although it was expected.
The bottom three teams remained unchanged, with relegated Almeria being the sole team to earn points by defeating Rayo Vallecano, resulting in Vallecano slipping down to 15th place.
Osasuna fell two positions to 13th after losing to Real Betis.
The only positional alteration in the top half of the league standings was the swap between Girona and Barcelona.

🇩🇪 BUNDESLIGA
Leverkusen maintains their unbeaten record. There were no changes in positions within the top 7 spots.
Augsburg dropped a position following their defeat to Dortmund, enabling Hoffenheim to move up to 8th place with a draw against RB Leipzig.
Dortmund narrowed the gap between themselves and the top four to three points.

🇮🇹 SERIE A
The great news for Serie A is that they have secured five slots in next season’s Champions League through the league standings. As it stands, the Milan clubs (Inter Milan and AC Milan) have already qualified for Champions League football for the upcoming season, leaving three spots up for contention.

🇫🇷 LIGUE 1
Second place is the highest position achievable in the French Ligue 1 after Paris Saint-Germain secured the expected league title. Monaco is the frontrunner to finish in second place. Clermont and Lorient’s best hope for the season is to secure the relegation playoff spot, currently held by Metz, who aims for a better finish to avoid the relegation playoff altogether.

🇳🇱 EREDIVISIE
PSV Eindhoven clinches the Eredivisie title with two games to spare, suffering just one defeat on their path to victory. Volendam joins Vitesse in relegation. The remaining competition now focuses on the race to avoid the relegation playoff spot, with Excelsior, RKC Waalwijk, and Heracles being the primary contenders.
Another race is the chase for third place finish between FC Twente and AZ Alkmaar.

🇵🇹 PRIMEIRA LIGA
With two rounds left in the season, Sporting CP secures the league title for the 20th time. Benfica confirms their position as the runner-up, while the battle for third place continues between Porto and Braga.
Vizela is relegated, Chaves is destined for relegation, while Portimonense is within reach of avoiding the relegation playoff spot.

It’s no surprise that Almería and Salernitana are relegated, as both clubs have managed only 2 league wins each, with a winning rate of 0.06.

Sheffield United has conceded the most league goals (100) at a rate of 2.78 goals conceded per game. Consequently, they hold the record for the most league defeats (26), losing 72% of their league games.
