After a turbulent week filled with games in European competitions, the top five continental leagues are back. We’ve picked the most interesting game from each championship to present in this article.
Stay tuned with BetXchange.
Arsenal VS Southampton
The hosts are in a desperate situation, with winning three points here as an imperative. Arsenal needs to keep the gap between and Man City before Tuesday’s clash, thus be in the position to hold on for one point at the Etihad.
Southampton is last in the Premiership but with moderate chances of staying in the top tier of English football. However, their previous win was in early March, experiencing four victories and two draws since.
🗣️ “My players are really looking forward to tomorrow. Seven games left, we have four games left at the Emirates. Friday night, I want that crowd to be electric.”

The Saints’ defense is problematic, with them not conceding two goals in only one of the past six events, so we expect to see Arsenal easily defeating this rival.
Pick: Arsenal wins 1/5 at BetXchange
Lyon VS Marseille
The two former French champions close the 32nd Ligue One round at Parc Olympique in Lyon. Hosts have three victories in a row in the championship and haven’t lost in seven straight. Only one of those events hasn’t ended, with both teams scoring.
Marseille is without a defeat in the previous six Ligue One contests, splitting that between three draws and victories. However, they have been near perfect on the road this calendar year, winning eight away events in a row, before playing 0-0 in Lorient two weeks ago.
We should see an entertaining and efficient event due to the fact that both teams have exceptional individuals upfront. That’s why both teams netting is the best pick here.
Pick: Both teams netting 1/2 at BetXchange
Juventus VS Napoli
The Old Lady had an exhausting matchup in Lisbon, but that’s past Allegri’s crew. After a period of excellent performances, Juve slowed down, but that’s because they focused on Europa League and had no chance of reaching the top four places in the Serie A standings.
Napoli suffered another shock against Milan, exiting the UEFA Champions League. Spalletti’s crew has no competitive motive to play anymore but will be willing to put on a show in Turin.
Back in training with Juventus up next 👊

Napoli humiliated Juve in the last meeting 5-1, and the hosts will try to avenge that. Napoli plays without pressure, and we expect to see them being offensive-minded. That’s why we pick over 2.5 goals for this contest.
Pick: Over 2.5 goals 6/5 BetXchange
Barcelona VS Atletico Madrid
Blaugrana will probably win the La Liga title, with them being far ahead of Real Madrid. Yet, they have to win against the big rivals and snap a cold streak during which they haven’t scored in the past three events, losing one (vs. Real at home, 0-4) and playing 0-0 in two latter.
Atletico hasn’t lost in the past eleven events, and right now, Diego Simeone’s unit is in the best form of all the Spanish units. Atleti won the past six events, and we are pretty sure their fans are cursing the luck because of the late burst. The results would have been much better if they had played like this throughout the entire campaign.
Barca has one of the toughest defenses ever in Spanish football, and they are on the course of breaking the record for the fewest goals conceded in one season. As for Atletico, their ultra-defensive style of play has become legendary. So, when we combine these two factors, under 2.5 goals is the most logical pick.
Pick: Under 2.5 goals 2/3 at BetXchange
Borussia Dortmund VS Eintracht Frankfurt
The hosts are trying to win the Bundesliga title, which would be a massive surprise, and given the state of Bayern right now, this is a unique chance for the Millionaires. Borussia won the past seven games at Signal-Iduna Park, scoring 26 goals during this stretch.
Eintracht tries to reach the spot leading to the international stage, but eight consecutive away games without a victory prevent the Eagles from fulfilling their ambitions.
Borussia’s position forces us to bet on them, which is our pick in this case.
Pick: Borussia wins 4/6 at BetXchange
