There is a lot of action in the world of football today, with action in the Serie A, LaLiga plus so much more, and here are our simple bets!
Udinese vs Juventus
The hosts have lost three consecutive home matches 1-0, with each of their last seven outings here witnessing at least one team fail to score. Juve has won just one of their previous seven competitive matches on the road, but they desperately need a win here to stay in the hunt for a top-four place. Seven of Juve’s eight Serie A away matches against sides in the bottom half ahead of this game week witnessed both teams score (W4, D4).

Mainz 05 vs Hertha Berlin
Currently on an amazing seven-game unbeaten run in the Bundesliga (W5, D2), Mainz has transformed themselves from relegation favorites to likely survivalists in the space of a month. Hertha is without a win in ten Bundesliga away games (D5, L5) – their worst such run since 1982-83, so we are backing the hosts here.

Valencia vs Barcelona
With survival almost assured, Valencia has little more to play for other than the preservation of a solid recent H2H history with Barcelona. In fact, Valencia has earned a result from all but one of six clashes with Barcelona in all competitions since 2018-19 (W2, D3, L1), to accompany a win/draw rate of 62.50% as a home outsider this LaLiga season. Barca simply has to once back from their shock defeat to Granada, though, to stay in the title race and we back them to do that.
