With the Bundesliga sadly out the door, it’s now time to take a gander at the rest of the beautiful soccer that Europe has to offer. I thought about becoming Barney the Brit, and only dealing with the EPL, but there’s too much soccer to continue to focus on one league. After my Bundesliga break up, added with the EPL, Serie A, and La Liga all in action pretty much everyday, it’s a soccer fans delight right now. So I’m gonna give you all the entire tour of Europe from here on out. The European Vacation is here. Let’s get to the breakdowns, and picks for the big games today, June 30th.
Only one game on the EPL schedule today, but it showcases one of the big boys in Manchester United. Bruno Fernandez and Paul Pogba will be too much for Brighton. Taking Man U -140 ML, and may get ballsy and take them -1.5 at +180.
Two matches on this Italian footy slate, but only one game I’ll have my eyes on. That game is obviously the one Ronaldo is playing in. The Old Lady have been on a two-game win streak following their Coppa Final loss against Napoli. ‘Juve are a wagon, and with a win they’ll extend their 4 point lead over Lazio. Their opposition, Genoa, are more well known for their salami than they are soccer. Give me La Fidanzata d’Italia (The Girlfriend of Italy, yes that’s one of the nicknames Juventus has) -1.5 at +115, and the 2.5 goal over at -140.
Massive, massive, massive game to end June in La Liga with this Atletico Madrid/Barcelona match. This is the match of the day, and potentially the match of the week outside of Thursdays clash between Liverpool and Man City. Barca has been dropping crucial points since the restart, and are now in danger of Real Madrid running away with the La Liga crown. This game will be a goal-fest, which is why I’m jumping on the over of 2.5 goals at EVEN odds.
Manchester United ML (-140) and Man U -1.5 (+180)
Juventus -1.5 (+115) and the Juve/Genoa Over of 2.5 (-140)
Atletico Madrid/Barca Over of 2.5 (EVEN)
