There are a couple of hot games in this week’s Mega Jackpot and SportPesa’s blog delves into the headlining fixtures.
MANCHESTER CITY vs LIVERPOOL
Just a week after these teams played out to a thrilling 2-2 draw at the Etihad, they head to Wembley for the semifinal of the FA Cup.
Liverpool are in the semis for the first time since the 2014/15 season, where they suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa.
Mohamed Salah has now gone four games without a goal and is desperate to make his mark as the reds seek a final appearance against either Chelsea or Crystal Palace.
From the 51 matches played between these two sides, Liverpool have the advantage after winning 23 times compared to City’s 10 wins.
There has to be a winner and yet another stalemate could be on the cards.
WATFORD vs BRENTFORD
Watford host a rejuvenated Brentford as they look to avoid a third consecutive defeat in the English Premier League.
The hosts last outing ended in a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Leeds at Vicarage Road, while Brentford stunned West Ham in a 2-0 win.
That was Brentford’s second straight win, moving them up to 13th place with 36 points, 14 more than relegation-threatened Watford.
Watford need a miracle if they are to survive the axe and it begins here, they could indeed halt the visitors run and rack up three points.
BAYER LEVERKUSEN vs LEIPZIG
The two teams racing for a top three finish in the Bundesliga will battle it out at the BayArena on Sunday.
Leverkusen are in third place with 52 points, while Leipzig are hot on their heels with 51 points ahead of the heated encounter.
The visitors have the second best defensive record in the German top flight behind leaders Bayern Munich.
The hosts were held to a barren draw by Bochum last time out, while their opponents silenced Hoffenheim in a 3-0 win.
Both teams are expected to get their names on the scoresheet but a draw could be the most likely outcome.
NEWCASTLE vs LEICESTER
The home team snapped a three-match losing streak to pop up with a 1-0 victory against Wolves last weekend.
Leicester on the other hand edged Crystal Palace 2-1 to remain in ninth place with 40 points.
These two sides last met in December last year and Leicester came out on top after a majestic 4-0 thumping.
A win for Newcastle can see them move up five places on the competitive English Premier League table.
Jamie Vardy is the only main absentee from the visitors squad, still setting up an enticing encounter.
The hosts have more on the line and could use that to their advantage and bag all three points at St. James’ Park.
SEVILLA vs REAL MADRID
The biggest game in the La Liga weekend sees third place Sevilla host leaders Real Madrid.
Iconic duo of Karim Benzema and Vincius Junior were both on target in a 2-1 win the last time these sides met.
Sevilla have 60 points, level with second place Barcelona, but have only managed one win in their last five league matches.
Madrid just need three more wins to all but confirm their status as 2021/22 La Liga champions and will be aiming for all three points here.
Sevilla have only won 16 times out of the 53 games played between these two and a draw could be their most favorable result here.
