WITH most if not all the winners confirmed in the top leagues around Europe, attention is now focused on cup finals and teams seeking doubles or trebles to end the season.

JustBet previews the German DFB Pokal final with champions Bayern Munich versus RB Leipzig after which its the Spanish Copa del Rey final with Champions Barcelona squaring off with Valencia and we close off with Italian giants, AC Milan fighting for a Champions League spot against SPAL FC.

EVENT # 1

League champions Bayern Munich take on RB Leipzig in the German Cup final looking to complete the domestic double.

Bayern Munich are determined to make up for last year's German Cup loss to Eintracht Frankfurt when facing Leipzig in this season's decider. Bayern came out on top 18 times in 21 previous appearances in the end of season showcase and hope that normal service resumes tomorrow (Saturday, May 25, 2019).

Leipzig are no pushovers and buoyed from their last encounter against Munich two weeks ago when they held the Bavarians to a goalless draw at home. This will be Leipzig first appearance in the final and they hope to make it a memorable one for their fans. After finishing third in the league and Champions League football for next season guaranteed, Leipzig are going to play with freedom knowing they had the best defensive record in the league this season.

Bayern, on the other hand, wrapped up a seventh-straight Bundesliga title on Saturday in spectacular fashion, thrashing Frankfurt 5-1 at home with outgoing legends Frank Ribery and Arjen Robben signing off their illustrious careers by coming off the bench to score late goals.

The betting tip. Bayern Munich win

Event # 2

All eyes will be on the Estadio Benito Villama tomorrow when Barcelona and Valencia square off in the Copa del Rey final.

Barcelona were denied a shot at the treble this season as they were humbled 0-4 by a rampant Liverpool in their second-leg Champions League semi-finals at Anfield a few weeks ago. The Catalans are trying to win their fifth-straight Copa del Rey title and their fourth domestic double in the last five seasons as they face a tricky but unpredictable Valencia side. No team has won more Copa del Rey titles than Barcelona, with 30 stashed away in their cabinets.

Now, Valencia have the arduous task of getting past an in-form Barcelona team if they are to win their first Copa del Rey title since 2008, but with some of Barca key players nursing injuries, there is hope. Star man Messi has been scoring goals for fun lately in all competitions and Valencia's defenders have their work cut out.

However, thanks to a 2-0 win over Valladolid last weekend Valencia booked their place in Champions League qualifiers for next season, meaning that they are fully focused on this game. So, after being denied the title they truly craved this season (Champions League), Barcelona now have only Valencia between them and becoming the first club ever to lift the Copa del Rey in five straight seasons during its 117-year history.

The betting tip. Barcelona win.

Event # 3

The stadio Paolo Mazza hosts a very intriguing and important match tomorrow as SPAL host an AC Milan side chasing a top-four spot and a Champions League place for next season.

Despite suffering back-to-back defeats to the likes of Napoli and Udinese in their two previous games, SPAL managed to secure their Serie A survival and, as a result, they have nothing much to play for against Milan.

AC Milan, on the other hand, secured an important win over Frosinone last weekend, which kept their hopes of booking a Champions League spot alive. Anything but a win against SPAL shatters that Milan Champions League dreams, as they currently sit in fifth place on 65 points, 1-point behind fourth place Inter Milan on 66 points and sixth place Roma on 63 points breathing down their necks.

AC Milan have won all three head to head meetings between both sides, winning their last meeting 2-1 in December.

The betting tip. AC Milan win.
