Goals galore on exciting Sunday around Europe


Sunday features some sensational fixtures with derbies from Germany and Italy, as well as a grudge match in France.

The earliest comes from the Bundesliga where Schalke and Borussia Dortmund meet in The Revierderby. This fixture is traditionally a feisty affair and this edition comes with the extra ingredient of both teams being separated by just a single point.

Schalke surprisingly lost 3-2 to Hamburg last Saturday, a result that may have come as a result of Bayern wrapping up the title earlier in the day. However, they have won their last three at the Veltins-Arena.

Dortmund look good under Peter Stoger, despite reservations about his defensive style of play. Stoger’s predecessor Peter Bosz lost his job shortly after Der BVB had squandered a 4-0 lead to draw 4-4 in the reverse fixture and they are far more pragmatic under the former Cologne coach.

A win on Sunday will see them leapfrog Die Konigsblauen into second but they have not won in Gelsenkirchen since October 2013.

Interestingly, the last four meetings between the sides have ended in draws and that outcome is 47/20. In fact, a score draw could be the answer at 3/1, with over 3.5 goals 21/10.

Then at 7:45, it’s the Derby della Capitale as Lazio take on Roma after contrasting weeks in Europe.

I Biancocelesti were the only one of the top-four chasers to win last week but then went out of the Europa League on Thursday to an inspired Red Bull Salzburg, while Roma made it to a first European Cup semi-final since 1984 by staging a stunning comeback win over Barcelona.

Games between the Eternal City’s big two are always exciting and this one is unlikely to be any different. The Giallorossi won 2-1 earlier in the season and Lazio’s propensity to concede means over 3.5 goals tempts at 33/20, as does the 3/1 for another score draw.

Finally to the City of Lights where Paris Saint-Germain take on Monaco. Anything but a win for the reigning champions will see PSG reclaim the Ligue 1 title and Leonardo Jardim will be urging his troops on.

Unai Emery’s men have perhaps predictably gone off the boil since being eliminated from the Champions League, although it has hardly affected their results, with last Friday’s 1-1 draw at Saint-Etienne their only dropped points.

After being raided in the summer, Monaco have been game chasers but were always going to find it tough after losing half of the team that claimed the title last term.

PSG won 3-0 when these two met late last month in the Coupe de la Ligue final, with Edinson Cavani netting twice.

The Uruguayan has 24 goals to his name this season and is 27/20 to net another brace or more and it should be a successful night for Les Parisiens.

Having won the last five meetings between the sides, Emery’s men should have enough but it will not be easy and the home win and both to score looks sensible at 23/20.
