The action across the European leagues is heating up, with just under a month remaining of competition this term. Vital points will be up for grabs at both ends of the standings across the continent, and the best bets for each of the top five leagues in Europe can be found below.
Leeds United and Newcastle kick off the weekend on Saturday, and it looks to be a huge game for both sides. Leeds have failed to score in their previous two against Newcastle, while the Magpies hold a 54% win rate over the Whites. However, a draw could be a decent bet this weekend.
The pressure will be on Man United on Saturday, as they bid to end a two-game losing run against Wolves. This looks a solid fixture for United, as Wolves have struggled against top-four opposition since returning to the Premier League. Therefore, the preference would be for the hosts.
The big game of the weekend comes on Sunday, as Man City travels to Goodison Park. Everton has won just once in 19 matches against City, but they come into this showdown after a 5-1 win over Brighton. A chance in this fixture will be taken on the draw.

Napoli has already confirmed their status as Italian champions, and they will be looking to continue their fine form this weekend against Monza. They are unbeaten in all league matches against Monza, and a fourth win in seven matches against Monza could be on the cards.

Just a point separates the top two in the Bundesliga standings coming into this round of matches. Bayern Munich are the first of the top two to take to the field, and they are incredibly hard to overlook against Schalke. They have gone 24 unbeaten against their rivals, winning on 21 occasions.
Dortmund faces a slightly tougher test later in the day, as they come up against Borussia Monchengladbach. However, Dortmund are our pick, as they have won 16 of their previous 17 home matches against Gladbach, scoring an impressive 49 goals in the process.
Union Berlin and Freiburg clash in a match with Champions League implications on Saturday. Union has an excellent record against Freiburg, having lost just once in six home matches. They are unbeaten in 21 home matches this term, and the preference rests with the hosts to extend that.
