Bournemouth vs Nottingham Forest: Bet on a goal change
Bournemouth are having a great season, where they are fighting for a place in the EPL. And the team is serious about making a direct entry there, having made the playoffs. Ahead of the match, the Cherries are second in the standings with 82 points, just three ahead of third-placed Nottingham Forest. Accordingly, the Forest are also raring to go to the EPL, but they need a win today to get a direct ticket.
We won't be picking favorites in this encounter. Both teams have two games left to play, including this one, and a direct trip to the EPL is on the line. Therefore, they need points like air. It should be noted that they score very decently (in the last four rounds, they scored at least one goal each). The defeat will not satisfy either Bournemouth or Nottingham Forest - whoever concedes will be trying their best to get back into the game. Therefore, we are entitled to expect an exchange of goals.
- Bet: Both teams to score
Villarreal vs Liverpool: The Reds will beat their rivals again
The Champions League semi-final first leg between these teams followed a completely expected scenario. Liverpool suffocated for 90 minutes, while Villarreal put the bus on and occasionally tried to counterattack. Even with such football, Unai Emery's side could have succeeded (without losing at the Enfield), but a ricochet from Pervis Estupiñan in the 53rd minute broke all plans. Villarreal had no time to recover from their first conceded goal before Sadio Mane netted the second two minutes later (Liverpool's 2-0 win).
Villarreal's chances of success in the return leg were unlikely. If the Yellow Submarine had managed to pull themselves together in time and not concede a second goal in England, they would have had all the chances, but to score two with a defense like Liverpool's sounds unreal. Moreover, Jurgen Klopp himself noted in his pre-match interview that the outcome of the encounter was not a foregone conclusion, and it was worth ignoring the result of the first match. Accordingly, we won't see any play-by-play from the visitors - we expect them to beat the home team classically and progress to the Champions League final.
