We’re on for a hat-trick!
We’re certainly finishing the season in style – our last two trebles have flown in!
So here we are, looking for three in a row like so many great teams have. Straight away you think of Sir Alex Ferguson’s classic Manchester United sides, or Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid side dominating the European stage – let’s see if we can join them.
Now, there’s only three Premier League matches this weekend, and with there being no lower league English football either, we’ve decided to broaden our horizons and give the Saturday Footie Treble a more continental feel this week…
Burnley vs Leeds United
We’re starting in familiar territory though as our first pick comes from Turf Moor for the Premier League between Burnley and Leeds.
Both sides looking to string together successive victories coming into this one after the Clarets beat Fulham 2-0 on Monday to confirm their Premier League safety, while Leeds saw off Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 last time out to move up to 10th.
What will be concerning for Sean Dyche is that his side have won none of their last eight league matches at Turf Moor – their joint-longest winless home run in the English top flight.
Leeds will be looking to extend their opponents’ winless run on Saturday.
We’re going for a Leeds win at 5/4.
Freiburg vs Bayern Munich
Next, we’re heading to the Bundesliga where champions Bayern Munich are in action against Freiburg, who are in the hunt for European football.
Freiburg bounced back from a disappointing defeat to Hertha Berlin with an impressive 4-1 win away to FC Koln last weekend, while Bayern wrapped up a ninth consecutive title.
Robert Lewandowski is one goal shy of Gerd Muller’s Bundesliga record tally of 40 in a season, so he’ll be hoping to get on the scoresheet here.
We can’t see anything other than a Bayern Munich win here at 3/10.
Juventus vs Inter Milan
Our final pick comes from Italy in the mouth-watering match-up between Juventus and Inter Milan.
Inter were confirmed as champions a week ago and now they face an out-of-form Juve side who simply must win to stay in the hunt for Champions League football next season.
Just three wins from their last six leaves Andrea Pirlo’s side sitting fifth in the table. The only silver lining for the Turin side is that Atalanta and Milan will lock horns on the final day, meaning points will be dropped as a result, regardless of the outcome.
We think Juve will get the crucial three points here at 23/20.
