🛋 Saturday 12 December

🇮🇹 Atalanta vs Roma

Atalanta is flying high in Serie A, unbeaten in ten matches (W8, D2) – a run that includes victories over heavyweights Juventus and fellow title contenders Napoli. Gian Piero Gasperini's men have won their last six, netting two or more goals in all but one of their last eight. Roma got back to winning ways with a 2-0 success over Spezia last time out to ease some of the pressure on manager Jose Mourinho, but the capital club remains eight points off the top four. The Giallorossi has scored in each of their last 11 trips to Atalanta, although they've won just four of them. 

⚡️ TIP: Atalanta win & BTTS

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Leeds vs Arsenal

Leeds will be smarting from a 7-0 mauling at the hands of Manchester City in midweek. Now, their injury crisis hardly helps their plight, and Junior Firpo will also be absent here through suspension after an accumulation of bookings meaning that Marcelo Bielsa might be without up to nine first-team players. Arsenal's home form has been far superior to the form they have shown on their travels, but they should be able to edge this and claim a rare three points away from home. 

⚡️ TIP: Arsenal to score in both halves

🇪🇸 Sevilla vs Atlético Madrid

While Sevilla is yet to taste defeat at home in the league this season, November's loss against Lille paved the way for a surprise Champions League group stage elimination. Five of Sevilla's last six matches against the reigning Spanish champions have featured under 2.5 goals. Given that Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui is without the key quintet of Youssef En-Nesyri, Jesus Navas, Erik Lamela, Suso and the suspended Fernando, he'll send his side out to try and make things difficult for Diego Simeone's visitors. The Rojiblancos will be well-rested and that should help them pick up a crucial three points.

⚡️ TIP: Atlético win

🌞 Sunday 19 December

🇳🇱 Feyenoord vs Ajax

Erik Ten Hag's visitors are unbeaten in 22 Eredivisie matches on the road, keeping clean sheets in each of their last six, but this is likely the sternest test they'll face all season. Feyenoord and Ajax are locked on 36 points with identical records after 16 rounds of action and the hosts have won 10 of their last 11 at De Kuip. This could be a defining moment in the title race in Holland, and it should be an entertaining fixture too. 

⚡️ TIP: Over 2.5 goals

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Tottenham vs Liverpool

The Reds were made to work for their 3-1 win over strugglers Newcastle at Anfield on Thursday night, but another three points means that they're still in the thick of the title race. Antonio Conte's Tottenham side hasn't kicked a ball since their 3-0 win over Norwich on December 5th, with Covid outbreaks starting to wreak havoc with the Premier League schedule, so they have to play catch-up with three games in hand as things stand. Liverpool has won each of their last three Premier League matches away to Tottenham and they'll be confident of making it four. 

⚡️ TIP: Liverpool win & over 2.5 goals
