After a 5/1 winning acca last Saturday, we pick our best bets for Saturday 27th May featuring the FA Cup Final, German Cup Final & Serie A...
Arsenal v Chelsea - FA Cup Final - 17:30
We're expecting a close one at Wembley on Saturday. London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea head into the FA Cup final in their best form of 2017, with the Gunners having won each of their last five and the Blues looking for their eighth win on the bounce. We're hoping for a much tighter game than either of the H2H's between the sides this season - each has ended in routine home wins with Arsenal thrashing Chelsea 3-0 at the Emirates in September before a 3-1 win earned revenge for Conte's men in February. Both will be desperate not to lose this one, so we'd be very surprised to see a repeat of either scoreline mentioned above. BTTS landed when the sides last met and considering Chelsea have scored 21 goals against the top four this season (all comps) compared to Arsenal's 17, we expect to see both teams score again. BTTS is 8/11 at Stan James.
Atalanta v Chievo - Serie A - 17:00
Atalanta look set to complete the league double over Chievo in their final match of the Serie A Season on Saturday. La Dea thrashed Verona 1-4 at the Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi back in January and have also won three of their last five homes against Gialloblu dating back to 2012. The Serie A's surprise package have already confirmed their place in next season's Europa League group stage and cannot finish any lower than fifth with just one game remaining. That being said, they do have motivation in this one as they can still move up into fourth ahead of Lazio. At first glance you may think the this could be a risky backing given that Atalanta have drawn five of their last seven, but they've faced some really tough opposition during that spell including Roma, Juventus and AC Milan with their only defeat in 17 coming at Inter Milan in March. Visitors Chievo have lost nine of their last 14 away from home. The home win is 8/15 at betway.
Frankfurt v Dortmund - German Cup - 19:00
Dortmund & BTTS looks a really good shout for the DFB Pokal Final against Frankfurt on Saturday. Thomas Tuchel's men have lost at this stage for the last three years, with two defeats against Bayern Munich sandwiching a loss against Wolfsburg in 2015. After a strong end to the season however, we think they have what it takes to earn their first cup win since 2012. They've won five of their last eight matches across all competitions, including against champions Bayern Munich in the semi final, Werder Bremen and Hoffenheim. Die Schwarzgelben beat Eintracht 3-1 when the sides met in mid April, and we're expecting a repeat result on Saturday considering out of form Frankfurt have won just one of their last 13 (all comps). BTTS & Dortmund is 11/5 at Betfred.
