It’s the final weekend of action across most of Europe’s elite leagues and we’re looking to win big with this huge 44/1 treble at Coral on the BTTS & Win market.
Clubs will be eager to give their fans something to cheer on the final day and we’re anticipating a feast of goals across the continent. Hopefully these three teams will all win whilst also conceding at the wrong end.
Hamburg V Schalke. 2:30PM
Roberto Di Matteo has enjoyed a relatively successful season in Gelsenkirchen but his Schalke side must improve their away form if they are going to cause any problems next season. The visitors will be eager to increase their confidence by beating relegated Hamburg in the final match of 2014/15.
Schalke have won just three times on the road in 2014/15 but should have too much for their lowly opponents, who only boast eight wins and 23 goals from 33 Bundesliga matches this term. Quite simply, it has been a dismal campaign for Bruno Labbadia’s men and the gulf in quality should prevail here.
However, Hamburg’s last four matches have all ended in BTTS winners and the hosts will fancy their chances of finding the net against an away side that has leaked 24 on its travels. Nonetheless, the quality of Jan Klaas-Huntelaar and Eric Choupo-Moting should give the visitors an excellent chance.
Schalke claimed a comfortable 3-0 win in last year’s trip to the Imtech Arena and are more than capable of ending this campaign in a similar style. However, we do think the relegated hosts will score too.

Hamilton Academical V St. Mirren. 3PM
SPL club Hamilton have enjoyed a phenomenal first year since promotion from the Scottish Championship and enter this weekend’s final game sitting comfortably in mid-table. Despite dropping off slightly since Martin Canning replaced Alex Neil, the hosts should bring the curtain down in style against already relegated St. Mirren.
Hamilton boast a fairly decent record at New Douglas Park and should increase their tally of 29 home goals against the rock-bottom Saints. However, they have shipped 20 times from their previous 18 home ties and will need to be careful against an away side that’ll be desperate to end a terrible campaign with some cheer.
The Saints will take confidence from a 1-0 home win over the Accies during their last meeting. However, Hamilton did win the earlier home clash via a comfortable 3-0 scoreline, which is probably nearer the way we expect thing to pan out here – even if we are backing the visitors to score.
It’s difficult to predict the outcome of this match with any real conviction but the stats would suggest this is a good bet to take. At odds of 27/10, let’s hope they provide a slice of luck.

PSG V Reims. 8PM
French champions PSG have been brilliant over the last few weeks and should end their triumphant Ligue 1 campaign with another comfortable win at the Parc des Princes. However, with the title wrapped up, they may take their foot off the pedal and we’re backing Reims to at least grab a consolation in this final clash of the season.
Laurent Blanc’s men were held to a 2-2 draw in the early season reverse clash but Reims head to the capital knowing the odds are stacked heavily in the home side’s favour. PSG are unbeaten on home turf this season and that seems very unlikely to change here.
PSG may have conceded just 12 goals at home this term, but the visitors do boast 21 on their travels and can also utilise the party atmosphere to their advantage. Unfortunately, a defence that has leaked 34 away goals is unlikely to stop the formidable Parisians who have already notched 49 home goals.
Nobody expects anything other than a home victory in this one. Given the circumstances, at odds of 8/5 for an away goal, we’re definitely backing this outcome.
