Today's Three Games to Bank on

VENEZIA V FIORENTINA

No one expected Paolo Zanetti's team in the top division. Even fewer people expected the Venetians to succeed in Serie A. However, Venezia is approaching the match against Fiorentina with 2 draws in a row and only 2 losses in the last 5 games. A surprising result, given the modest status of the team.

At the same time, one cannot say that Venezia has already scored 5 points for no reason. The away win over Empoli (2-1) was achieved in great style and completely in accordance with the game. In the games against Torino and Cagliari, which ended with the same score of 1-1, the Venetians, despite not being in the advantage, consistently created scoring chances and deservedly got back into the game shortly before the final whistle. So far, Venezia’s prospects of remaining in Serie A next season remain very dubious. But still, the team is unexpectedly quite competitive, which deserves praising at the moment.

Fiorentina is a team that plays purely attacking soccer. Out of their last 7 games in the new championship, only one match did not see both teams score. There’s no reason for this tradition to break in the upcoming game. Venezia made an impression of a team able to create and convert scoring chances in the early rounds. In a match against an unbalanced Fiorentina, it’s very likely that Venezia will score a goal.

Prediction: Both teams will score

ARSENAL V CRYSTAL PALACE

Arsenal have not lost their last four league games. In that time, the Gunners have won three games by a combined total of 9-1, including the all-important 3-1 triumph over Tottenham. In the last round, Arsenal drew 0-0 with Brighton. So, Mikel Arteta’s side sit 13th with 10 points and one game left.

Crystal Palace are 14th, three points behind Arsenal. After a 3-0 thrashing of Tottenham, the Eagles have been winless for three games. First, they lost to Liverpool (0-3), then there were two draws: against Brighton (1-1) and Leicester (2-2). In the case of the Seagulls, Palace failed to hold on for a win, conceding a goal in the last minute. While against Leicester, the Eagles came back from 0-2 down in the second half. Patrick Vieira is coming off an interesting project.

Prediction: Over 2 Goals

VOLENDAM V NAC BREDA

Volendam are on 8th game run without defeat having won 6 and 2 draws of the their past 8 fixtures, and their only defeat this season came against Den Haag.

Volendam have scored the most number of goals in the competition so far and they have not kept a single clean sheet in their last five games while scoring two or more goals in four of their former four league fixtures at home.

NAC Breda on the other hand is on a two game run winning streak after a poor run of three consecutive lose. They will come into this clash with full confidence after a 1:0 home win against Jong AZ.

Coming to this clash both sides will aim for a win but Volendam's offensive power should be too much for NAC Breda to handle and this encounter is a perfect fixture for Volendam to top the Eerste Divisie table. In my opinion I think they can't afford to drop a point here and I'm backing them for a win with a sum score of over 3 goals.

Prediction: Both team to score
