Another busy Saturday sees a full schedule of football across the UK, and Europe.

As the business end of the season approaches, it’s tight at both the top and bottom of most respective leagues.

The Coral News Team picks out five sides who look like they could justify their odds…

Preston North End

Alex Neil takes his promotion-chasing Preston side north to face relegation-doomed Sunderland.

Preston are just four points off the top-six and could still make the post-season play-off games. They face a Sunderland outfit who are rock bottom, five points off safety.

Seani Maguire has made a huge difference for the Lilywhites since returning from injury. He should be the difference between the two sides at the Stadium of Light.

AFC Bournemouth

Eddie Howe’s side are a difficult side to pin down. They win and lose when you least expect them to. This game against West Bromwich Albion should be more straight-forward, though.

The Baggies are rooted to the foot of the Premier League table, eight points adrift, with just eight to play. Alan Pardew’s side need a miracle that doesn’t look like coming – at all.

The Cherries are generally decent at the Vitality Stadium and need a win to keep away from the drop-zone. Their quality should win it.

Fulham

Queens Park Rangers bagged a shock win at Aston Villa in midweek but Fulham will be a far greater proposition at Craven Cottage.

Slavisa Jokanovic’s side are irresistible right now, particularly in West London. This may be a derby but expect Ryan Sessegnon and co. to turn up the heat against the Hoops.

Real Betis

It’s off to La Liga now where Real Betis host Espanyol. Quique Setien’s vibrant Betis side are one of the most entertaining, attacking sides in European football.

The Seville outfit are just four points off a Europa League spot and will be gunning for all three points against the Catalans.

Espanyol are sat well ahead of the relegation zone and don’t have too much to play for here other than professional pride.

Schalke

In the Bundesliga, Wolfsburg and Schalke couldn’t be having more different seasons. Schalke are sat in second and will be desperate for a win to stay in the Champions League spots.

Wolfsburg need a win to steer clear of the relegation play-off spot. The Gelsenkirchen outfit are a much better side than their counterparts this term, though.

Dieter Hecking’s Wolves have struggled all season, and have won zero games at the Volkswagen Stadion this campaign.

Domenico Tedesco’s Schalke have won four on the bounce and look good prospects to make it five.
