France Ligue 1 — Marseille at Rennes
Marseille’s form has been on the upswing as of late which coincides with a strenghtened midfield and increased ball possession. It’s likely the full squad sees action here rather than their Sunday domestic league match as they prep for their final EuropeLeague match next Thursday where only a draw is needed to advance. Rennes have struggled on the backline the last couple of weeks and if not for Riems inability to score last week could have let in 4 to 5 in a 2-2 draw.
The Play is MARSEILLE (Pick) -135

Italy Coppa Italia — Cagliari at Sassuolo
Interesting match up here in Italian Cup play. Sassuolo comes off a strong game at home vs Fiorentina and face a Serie B team, but Cagliari have dominated Serie B this season as they look to return to Serie A next season and other than a couple blips on the screen have played exceptional on the road. It’s been a trend with the Italian Cup competition each year that games in the later rounds are tight and extra time/Penalties are needed to decide a winner, this one fits that scenerio as we’ll have a full strenght visitor taking on a home side that will have some changes to it’s line up from the one that faced Fiorentina. Taking a 1/2 goal here has some value.
The Play is CAGLIARI +1/2 -128

Spain – Copa Del Rey – Real Sociedad at Las Palmas
Another domestic league cup competition to look at. These two teams met a couple weeks back with the home side Las Palmas coming away with a 2-0 win against a Sociedad squad missing some of its regular starters yet Sociedad had greater ball possession and numerous opportunities to score, with a full squad Thursday we should see a different result in this first game of a two leg affair. Taking Sociedad to head home for the return affair with the advantage.
The Play is REAL SOCIEDAD (Pick) -114
