Top 5 European Football League’s Betting Action 22/23 May Including Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur
It’s the final weekend of the season across Europe’s elite footballing leagues, with nailbiting title-deciding games in the French Ligue 1 and Span’s La Liga. The English Premier League, Italy’s Serie A and Germany’s Bundesliga already have winners in Manchester City, Inter and Bayern, but next places for next year’s Champions League are still up for grabs.
Premier League: Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur
Fresh from winning the FA Cup, Leicester City would like to finish the league on a high. The Foxes need to win one of their final games to ensure Champions football next year, making it an exceptional year for Brendan Rogers and his team. The cup winning squad of Kelechi, Vardy and Youri are available for selection. However, they will miss Jonny Evans and Cengiz, who are out with injuries.
Tottenham are still stabilising after Mourinho’s departure but Ryan Mason has a full squad of notable names to choose from. Their hopes to play in Europe next season still hangs in the balance. A win can help them finish strong, with the hope that Liverpool and Chelsea lose their games. With Harry Kane looking set to leave, Gareth Bale returning to Real and no definite replacement for Mourinho, the season has not ended how the Spurs fans would have wished.
Although there is no clear favourite, the bookmakers predict Leicester to pick up the points, leaving Tottenham with a slow drive back to London
This is the game of the weekend and a ticket for either team to rise up the rankings. Keep an eye out for more exclusive bonuses and offers around this game.
La Liga: Valladolid vs Atletico Madrid
It’s the tightest finish to La Liga for years with Real Madrid trailing neighbours by two points going into the final game of the season. Atletico’s destiny is in their own hands, a win would see them win La Liga for the first time since 2014. Valladolid are also in the hot seat and will be fighting for La Liga survival. Only a win will give them a chance of staying up. With Suarez bringing in the experience and ability, a win will hand him his 3rd title in four years after Barca allowed him to leave last summer.
Valladolid needs 2 points to get out of the relegation zone. The odds favour Atletico and will require extra effort to topple the league leaders. With Roberto Jimenez out of the team, they pose less challenge. However, since it is a “final” to both teams, everyone will go all-in to defend their honour. It’s not surprising that the bookies are backing Atletico to win here and fancy them to walk away with the title. The pressure will be on!
Serie A: Atalanta vs AC Milan
The race for the runners up spot in Serie A is open, with Atalanta, Napoli and AC Millan all in contention. Only 2 points separate the 3 teams, and a win for either of them sealing the deal. It is one of Atalanta’s best seasons so far, with a perfect record in the last 3 games. If they win against AC Millan, 2020/21 will be their best season ever in Serie A.
AC Milan are fighting to return to Europe’s elite club competition, and a win will confirm their wishes. It will the most significant test to Pioli’s team this season, especially after a disappointing draw at home on their last outing.
There’s nothing in it as far as the bookmakers are concerned. Both teams are equally priced, perhaps AC have a slight nod to pick up the points.

Bundesliga: Dortmund vs Leverkusen
Dortmund hopes to crown their 5-game perfect streak against Leverkusen with a win. They are safe within the Champions League bracket but hope to finish strong. Haaland and Sancho are on a roll and have been crucial in Dortmund’s fine form. On the other hand, Leverkusen is out of Europe next season. The game can only help them finish in style since it will not change their fortunes.
As far as the betting goes, Leverkusen are complete outsiders to finish the season on a high, Dortmund are well fancied to win.
Ligue 1: Angers vs Lille
As the curtain closes on football leagues in Europe, French Ligue 1 will be the most dramatic. Lille needs a win to keep PSG at bay and win their first Ligue 1 trophy in 10 years. Although the odds favour them, they have to maintain their form and finish the season with a win.
Botman and Soumare have their eyes set on the premier league, and a win will be the best parting shot. Angers are safe from relegation, and if they win, they can land in the first half of the table. They will bank on this match to strengthen their squad for the next season. Angers see themselves as absolute underdogs as far as the betting goes.
