Sure Must Win Saturday Special Tips To Place on and Earn Big


Brentford centre-back Pontus Jansson had an evening to forget on Monday, losing the ball out of possession on the right-wing as Bournemouth hit the Bees on the counter to score the only goal of a cagey affair. The London club were unbeaten in 12 league matches heading into their playoff campaign but will now have to come from behind if they're to make back-to-back playoff final appearances. Thomas Frank will remain confident heading into the second leg, but the favourites have work to do.

Bournemouth silenced their doubters on Monday evening when David Brooks' impressive counter-attacking play allowed star man Arnaut Danjuma to slide home the opener in front of a buoyant Vitality Stadium crowd. Jonathan Woodgate's men lost three league games on the bounce heading into the playoffs, but if they can shut down the supply line from Mathias Jensen into Ivan Toney and Marcus Forss, they could book their place at Wembley with a draw.

Prediction: Both teams to score


A late penalty scored by Fabio Quagliarella gave Sampdoria three points on the road against Udinese last week.

Parma blew another lead last time out, this time against Sassuolo, and lost 3-1.

Claudio Ranieri has announced that he will leave the club at the end of this season after securing an impressive 9th place for Sampdoria.

Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
