Bet of the day

Parma to beat Bari @ 21/20

Serie B leaders Parma hold a six-point advantage over third-placed Venezia and, with three games left to play, they can almost guarantee their return to Serie A after a three-year absence with victory at relegation-threatened Bari.

The Gialloblu are unbeaten across their last four league fixtures, winning two, and have impressively kept clean sheets in each of these, while they have lost only one of their last 13 games.

Bari meanwhile have had a torrid time of things as of late, with Pasquale Marino’s side failing to win any of their last 10 in the league and accruing just three points across this run, and they are a point from safety in 18th place.

The hosts have beaten Parma just once across their last seven head-to-heads and it is difficult to see this record improving on Wednesday. Expect the Crusaders to all but seal promotion with victory.

Special of the day

Borussia Dortmunds vs Paris Saint-Germain: Kylian Mbappe to score anytime, BTTS and Niclas Fullkrug to have 1+ shots on target @ 41/20

After both escaped the “Group of Death” earlier in the competition, Borussia Dortmund and PSG meet once again in what is expected to be an entertaining affair as the two look to claim a spot in May’s Champions League final. 

The group-stage meeting at the BVB Stadion ended all square (1-1) and there should be joy for both sides in front of goal again, with each of both Dortmund’s and PSG’s last five games in all competitions seeing winners in this market.

The Parisians will likely be led by star striker Kylian Mbappe and he looks a promising option to get on the scoresheet again after netting four across his last three appearances, including a brace at Barcelona in the previous round.

Dortmund meanwhile will likely continue with Niclas Fullkrug up top and, although his goalscoring exploits do not mirror those of Mbappe, he has hit the target in each of his last five appearances and should be able to at least test the Paris goal.

Long shot of the day 

Gangwon to beat Pohang and Both Teams to Score @ 11/2

Gangwon have made an indifferent start to the K-League season with three defeats from their opening nine games – including in their last league fixture at Gimcheon Sangmu (1-0) – but they could return to winning ways against second-placed Pohang.

The hosts are on an 11-game unbeaten streak at their Gangneung Stadium home and have won each of their last three fixtures in front of their own fans in all competitions – scoring at least three goals in each to boot.

The Steelers may have won each of their last three on the road but their record at Gangwon leaves a lot to be desired, with Park Tae-ha’s side failing to win any of their last four visits. However, both of Pohang’s last two fixtures on the road have seen both sides score and so the visitors could be able to get on the scoresheet again on Wednesday.
