Weekend Sports Tips: Celtic, Bayern and Warriors get the nod
The FA Cup might be the biggest sporting event of the weekend, but there’s plenty more action going on too.
There are cup finals in Scotland and Germany, the final day of the Serie A season and big rugby and UFC matches. And we’re giving you tips on all of them…
Celtic v Motherwell
Celtic will be looking to win the treble for the second season running in Saturday’s Scottish Cup Final.
Brendan Rodgers’ side beat Motherwell 2-0 in the League Cup Final back in November. They’re Evens to win to nil again this time.
You can get the champions to win with a -1 handicap at 3/4 too.
Bayern Munich v Eintracht Frankfurt
Bayern will be looking to complete the double in the DFB-Pokal final against Eintracht. They’ve not been at their best lately though. They’ve only won two of their last five games, including a 4-1 home loss to Stuttgart last week.
Eintracht know that they’ll qualify for Europe if they lift the trophy. But it’s hard to see past Bayern in Jupp Heynckes’ final game. Bayern and Both Teams to Score is 17/10.
Robert Lewandowski may also leave the Bavarian giants this summer. He’s 11/5 to open the scoring in what could be his last game for the club.
Lazio v Inter Milan
Lazio and Inter Milan’s last league game of the season is essentially a play-off for the final Champions League spot in Serie A.
If Lazio avoid defeat, they’re guaranteed to finish fourth. Inter have to win to get a seat at Europe’s top table next term. We think Lazio will get the job done with a home win at 7/5.
Watch out for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. The dynamic midfielder has three goals in four games. He’s 9/5 to score here.
Wigan Warriors v Warrington Wolves
In Rugby League action, the Warriors face the Wolves as part of the Magic Weekend. Only two points separate the rivals in the Super League table heading into this one.
They’re both in great form too – the Wolves have won 10-in-a-row and the Warriors are on a seven-game winning run.
Kamaru Usman v Demian Maia
UFC hosts its first event in Chile in the early hours of Sunday morning. The headline event sees Ultimate Fighter 21 winner Usman go up against Maia, who was drafted in as a late replacement for Santiago Ponzinibbio.
Maia will pose a different challenge to what Usman had been preparing for. But we still think the Nigerian Nightmare’s strength and endurance will see him come out on top. He’s the clear 1/6 favourite.
