This weekend we’re looking to stay safe by picking what we expect to be four home wins yielding overall odds of almost five-to-one.

In Mexico on Saturday night, only a point separates leaders Guadalajara from reigning champions Monterrey, who face an easier-looking assignment against San Luis than Chivas do at home to Monarcas de Morelia. Unbeaten in 13 matches and with just three home defeats in their last two years of football, Monterrey will be looking to top scorer Aldo De Nigris to fire them to victory against a struggling San Luis side who have lost four and drawn two of their last six matches.

Over in Japan on Sunday, the last remaining undefeated side at the start of the new season – Shimizu S-Pulse – take on high-flying newbees Vegalta Sendai. Star-striker Shinji Okazaki (pictured), a player worth looking out for at the World Cup later this year, has already bagged three goals in five games from Shimizu, and the striker looks in fine form to help his side claim another three points this weekend.

Sunday in Serie A sees Juventus, who suffered a 3-0 thrashing at Udinese last weekend to slip to 7th, look to boost their Champions League hopes when Cagliari arrive in Turin. The Sardinians occupy mid-table mediocrity, and accordingly have little pressure on their shoulders as they play out the remainder of the season. And the visitors will look to take advantage of the absences of Caceres, Chimenti and Diego and Sissoko, while Salihamidzic and Del Piero are reportedly struggling with injuries. Nevertheless, back against the wall, Juve simply have to win this weekend if they want to avoid their season ending on a whimper.

Lastly, another fascinating weekend in the tight title race in France sees Lyon entertain Lille on Sunday evening. After moving into the semi-finals of the Champions League on Wednesday, les Gones must try to step up their challenge for Le Championnat against les Dogues – who have fallen away in recent weeks after losing to Valenciennes and Bordeaux. Lille, though, with an almost fully fit squad have more than enough talent to cause an upset, however Lyon’s high compete side, with the return of Lisandro Lopez and Sidney Govou after midweek suspension, should see the hosts claim the victory.

Backing Monterrey (1.48), Shimizu S-Pulse (1.68), Juventus (1.45) and Lyon (1.84) to all win at home we hope that our £2 stake will mushroom into a £13.28 return.
