Bet of the Day, 23.May – Double:
- Almeria v Valencia: Valencia @ 1.66
- Marseille v Bastia: Marseille @ 1.22
Almeria v Valencia
Almeria’s position is hopeless: only a win will give them a chance of surviving and to do that they must pocket 3 points more than they have all season against top-5 opponents. Even a win won’t be enough for the hosts, though, if their rivals also bag 3 points. Almeria are winless in 4 matches now. Valencia need victory to be assured of Champions League qualification.
Marseille v Bastia
Marseille are chasing a Champions League spot and they swept aside Lille 4-0 last weekend to secure a 3rd successive Ligue 1 victory. Bastia have nothing to play for and metaphorically speaking may already be on holiday.
