🪐 Futaa's five best picks for the weekend

It's FA Cup final weekend with an all-London affair on the horizon.

The meeting between Arsenal & Chelsea is the major highlight of a cracking footballing weekend around Europe in an unusually elongated season. Not that we're complaining. 

🇫🇷 PSG vs Lyon

PSG's return to competitive football continues with a French League Cup (Coupe de la Ligue) final clash against Lyon. The Parisians beat Saint-Étienne in the Coupe de France and will want to fine-tune preparations ahead of their Champions League quarterfinal with a dangerous Atalanta side. Kylian Mbappé is injured but PSG still has a wealth of attacking riches at their disposal which should see them get over the line. Lyon's talented trio of Jeff Reine-Adelaide, Memphis Depay & Houssem Aouar will have other ideas.

🇺🇸 Orlando vs LAFC

LAFC has lost just one of their last 14 MLS fixtures (W6, D7) and a recent 4-1 win against Seattle in continued a trend with eight of their last nine MLS fixtures witnessing four goals at least. This is knockout football and that should get the best out of in-form LAFC striker Diego Rossi; the 22-year-old Uruguayan has seven goals in his last four matches.

🏆 Arsenal vs Chelsea

This will be the third FA Cup final clash between Arsenal & Chelsea, with the Gunners winning both prior meetings in 2002 & 2017. There's an extra special element to proceedings this time around with respective bosses Mikel Arteta & Frank Lampard lifting the trophy as captains with their current clubs back in their playing days, not so long ago.

🔵 Atalanta vs Inter

Remarkably, Atalanta will rack up 100 Serie A goals if they score twice against Inter on the final day. The team from Bergamo has won many fans and admirers around the world this season with their unique and expansive attacking game, masterminded by talented playmaker and skipper Alejandro Gómez. Inter look tired after falling short in the title race but their away form remains excellent having won three of their last five on the road and scored 13 goals in that sequence. This battle to secure second place could be the highlight of Serie A matchday 38.

🧀 Lecce vs Parma

The hosts have won two of their last three Serie A home matches with the previous seven fixtures seeing both sides score. This run gives them a remote chance of survival but they must win and hope that Genoa doesn't collect three points against Hellas Verona. Ten of Lecce’s 18 Serie A home clashes have produced four or more goals. With the counter-attacking qualities of Gervinho and Dejan Kulusevski in Parma's ranks, this should be a thriller, especially with so much at stake.
