See the reasons for each selection on our accumulator for Saturday below, the first match kicks off at 2pm in Serie A before matches from Scotland and Germany complete the bet.
A disastrous sequence of ten successive losses has confirmed the relegation of Dundee from the Scottish Premiership and they have failed to find the net in six of those matches culminating in a 1-0 home defeat by struggling Hamilton at the weekend. A visit to Livingston now awaits with the hosts proving to be an inconsistent outfit this term but they have clinched three victories on home soil since late February. Livi were also leading against St Mirren in their previous game at the Almondvale Stadium before suffering a 3-1 loss after being reduced to ten players early in the first half. Another defeat is looming for Dundee.
Avoiding defeat in just three of their Scottish League Two games this year ensured that Berwick Rangers finished bottom of the league table, although they did create a surprise when beating title winners Peterhead 2-1 at Shielfield Park during mid-March. Rangers now hope to retain their current league status by contesting this playoff tie against Highland League winners Cove Rangers who beat Lowland League champions East Kilbride in both eliminator legs. Cove are also unbeaten in competitive action since the beginning of December and should win this first leg on home soil.
It has been a difficult Bundesliga campaign for Schalke but their top flight status for next season has now been confirmed with four points earned from their last two fixtures. A 4-2 win at local rivals Borussia Dortmund was particularly satisfying but they now visit a Bayer Leverkusen outfit which has won four successive league contests including 4-1 and 6-1 victories in those last two fixtures. Champions League football remains a real possibility for Bayer next term and they could move nearer to that target by earning all three points from this match.
Although they beat Juventus 2-0 on home soil during mid-March, Genoa have failed to win a subsequent Serie A game which has ensured that are yet to confirm their top flight status for next season. Draws against both Napoli and Roma have proven that Genoa can play well against the better Italian teams but they now visit an Atalanta outfit closing on Champions League qualification for next season and winners of their last four competitive games. The in-form hosts are unbeaten since late February and are likely to collect another three points.
After failing to win any of their last eleven Serie A fixtures, Fiorentina have plummeted down the league table amid a losing sequence of four competitive games. The Florence outfit have registered just two clean sheets since the beginning of February and must now try to avoid another defeat when hosting AC Milan. The visitors still retain hopes of Champions League football for next term but winning this match is a priority to maintain those aims. Although Milan have been plagued by inconsistency for much of this season, their hosts have yet to win a league match on home soil this year, with the Milanese team tipped to win a second consecutive Serie A match.
Accumulator Odds – 13/1 with Betfred.
