AEK vs Olympiacos: The Red and Whites will take points away from Athens
AEK had a dismal season. In the end of it, the team remains without European competitions. On the eve of the final matchday, they are in fifth place with 56 points. The higher side, Aris, will not catch up. Last round, AEK broke their four-match unbeaten streak and lost just to Aris, 2-3.
Olympiacos, on the other hand, won another league title this season. In 35 rounds, the Red and White have earned 80 points. Now, they are 19 points ahead of second-placed PAOK. As for Olympiacos' last matches, after three wins in a row, they lost to Panathinaikos (1:2) and tied with PAOK (1:1).
For some reason, bookmakers believe that AEK will beat Olympiacos in the final round. We don't think so. If the hosts had tournament motivation, it would be another matter. But they don't, and the visitors are noticeably better. Olympiacos have not lost to AEK in 14 in a row in their head-to-head encounters! Therefore, a bet on Red and Whites not losing looks very justified.

Southampton vs Liverpool: The Reds must not falter
Southampton have had a decent season. The Saints sit 14th, sitting in mid-table ahead of the penultimate fixture. It should be noted that they have only one win in their last 11 games - 1-0 over Arsenal. There have also been only two draws and eight defeats.
On the other hand, Liverpool still have a chance of a treble! The team has already won the FA Cup, where they beat Chelsea in the final last week. At the end of May, they will face Real Madrid in the Champions League final, but the situation is not the best in the EPL. Liverpool are currently second in the table, four points behind relegated Manchester City, who have already lost in this round. In any case, the Reds have a chance of winning the league title for now.
We think Liverpool will get no resistance from Southampton. The home side has no tournament motivation, while the visitors are desperate for three points. We believe that they will start to press from the very first minute, and at the end of the meeting, they will get a comfortable win due to their class and great motivation. So we're betting on their win at the end of the first half and the end of the match.

Nottingham Forest vs Sheffield United: Forest go through to the play-off final
Nottingham Forest had a great first leg against Sheffield United and won it 2-1. As early as the tenth minute, Forest opened the scoring, and in the 71st minute, they extended their lead. But the Blades managed to pull one back in injury time, thus keeping their chances of qualifying for the play-offs.
We believe it will be Nottingham Forest who can reach the final of the Championship play-offs. The team bid for it in the first match and even a one-goal lead can be considered very decent, as they will now put up an all-out bus. They will certainly be successful, so we'll put our money on Nottingham Forest to win the game.
- Bet: W1
