Thomas Tuchel is aiming for a top four finish on Sunday

Listen to Football...Only Bettor for the best bets for the Premier League final day, the key European action as well as the Europa League final between Manchester United and Villarreal...

"Chelsea bounced back from the cup final in midweek. They will be too streetwise for Villa and will get the job done here. Chelsea to win and under 3.5 goals at 2.0811/10."

On this week's Football...Only Bettor host Kevin Hatchard and guests Mark O'Haire and Jason Murphy preview the final round of matches in the Premier League and top European leagues as well as Wednesday's Europa League final.

Final days of the season often produce more goals, as the team explain, so find out where they expect them on Sunday. Look out for this week's podcast treble at boosted odds as well as the weekend naps.

Listen here and read the summary of their bets below.

Premier League - Final day tips in the race for top four

Leicester v Tottenham - Sunday, 16:00

Mark: Leicester are out to 3.45 for a top four finish and I think winning the FA Cup final win may have blown them of course in the league. They looked physically and emotionally fatigued at Chelsea in midweek. But I expect Leicester to come out firing against Spurs. The Foxes will have the greater motivation and I fancy them to get the job done. I expect goals so will take 7/4 on over 3.5 goals and both teams to score with Bet Builder.

Jason: I fancy goals here too. I like the price on the Leicester lay at 2.0521/20, especially as Leicester will be without Jonny Evans.

Liverpool v Crystal Palace - Sunday, 16:00

JM: The Liverpool 1.182/11 price is about right when you take into account their motivation in trying to finish in the top four.

Aston Villa v Chelsea - Thursday, 16:00

MO: I like Chelsea even at 1.528/15. They bounced back from the cup final in midweek. They will be too streetwise for Villa and will get the job done here. Chelsea to win and under 3.5 goals at 2.0811/10 with the Bet Builder.

Ligue 1 - Back Lille to wrap up title

Angers v Lille - Sunday 20:00

MO: So far Lille have handled the pressure really well, winning five of their last seven. They've been very good in away fixtures. Angiers have been on the beach since securing a mid-table finish. I'll back Lille to win and under 3.5 goals with Bet Builder.

Brest v PSG - Sunday, 20:00

MO: Brest are involved in a relegation battle. It's must win for PSG and I expect them to be ready to go and win the match. But, with Lille winning at Angers, Mauricio Pochettino's men will fall short in the title race.

La Liga - Madrid clubs battle for title on final day

KH: Atletico are 1.271/4 to win the title with rivals Real Madrid 4.57/2.

JM: Odds of 1.384/11 on Atletico to beat Valladolid, as they go for the title, is a fair price. But there's no value there.

The same is true of Real Madrid v Villarreal where Zinedine Zidane's men are 1.4640/85. But it should be great drama.

Serie A - Two Champions League places still up for grabs

KH: Napoli 1.081/12, Juventus 1.654/6 and Milan 1.75/7 all go into the final day battling to take two of the remaining top four spots.

MO: Juventus are desperate to qualify for the Championship League and should beat Bologna on Sunday. Milan, who are also in the race for the top four, go to Atalanta and I quite fancy the 2.486/4 on the visitors. They have a great record away from San Siro this season and I'm backing them to win. This Italy and, I'll put it like this, Atalanta won't be devastated if Juve don't qualify for the Champions League.

Bundesliga - Opportunities to oppose relegation candidates

JM: I'll lay Arminia Bielefeld, who are fighting for survival, away to Stuttgart. I'd be tempted to do the same with Werder against Monchengladbach and Koln at home to Schalke. Bettors tend to put too much emphasis on motivation, so there could be an opportunity to get good odds betting against the teams in the relegation battle.

KH: I'm back Monchengladbach draw no bet at 1.758/11 in that match against Werder who are terrible.

I'll also back Bayern and Robert Lewandowski to score two or more at 2.29 as he tries to smash Gerd Muller's goalscoring record.

Europa League Final - United favourites to win Solskjaer's first trophy

Villarreal v Manchester United - Wednesday, 20:00

KH: United have had strange results lately in the Premier League but they've been very good in the Europa League and 1.9210/11 looks a good price.

Harry Maguire United 956.jpg

JM: I'm not so sure about United here. This is Unai Emery's trophy, as he's won it three times. A lot could depend on whether or not Harry Maguire is fit. I'm waiting to see what happens with him. I'm looking to go against United and I'm going to back Gerard Moreno to score.

MO: United deserve to be favourites. Villarreal are difficult to beat but they have been underwhelming in La Liga. That said, they deserves respect and have players that can cause problems for the United defence. If Maguire is fit, United can win but, if not, then Villarreal can cause an upset. For now, I'll work on the assumption that Maguire is out and will back both teams to score at around evens.
