Win £100,000 prize in this week’s Coral jackpot

This week’s jackpot pool from Coral is a guaranteed £100,000, so make sure you have a go at predicting these 15 football fixtures correctly.

You can place a minimum stake of £1, and for full list of terms and condition, and how to play, click here.

Aberdeen v Motherwell – Draw
A fifth meeting of the season between these side beckons and, because they know one another well and have each confirmed Europa League spots for next term, this one looks like ending level.

Inverness CT v St Johnstone – Draw
Caley have won two of the three head-to-heads already played, with Saints winning the other. Neither have anything left to play for, so expect both to take a share of spoils

Livorno v Fiorentina – Away win
Vincenzo Montella will demand a response to the Coppa Italia final defeat, and Livorno are set for hiding from his Viola. Defeat will relegate the hosts, but that has been on the cards for some time.

Torino v Parma – Draw
Expect the face for the final Europa League place in Serie A to go down to the wire. This will be a cagey affair between Turin’s second team and a rejuvenated Parma. AC Milan could capitalise on a draw here.

Cardiff v Chelsea – Draw
Neither club have anything to play for on the last day, with Cardiff already relegated and Chelsea unable to win the league. The Bluebirds, however, are desperately hoping not to finish bottom and a draw will be enough to avoid that if Felix Magath’s Fulham lose.

Fulham v Crystal Palace – Draw
The Cottagers thrashed Palace 4-1 away from home in the reverse fixture, but the Eagles are in too greater form for the same to occur again. Like Cardiff, Fulham want to avoid finishing 20th, so Magath will do all he can to give fans a positive Premier League send off.

Hull v Everton – Away win
Everton have won the last two against Hull, and with the Tigers focussing fully on the FA Cup final now, after assuring top-flight safety, it seems the Toffees can beat them again.

Liverpool v Newcastle – Home win
Liverpool have literally slipped up in the title race, after being odds-on favouirtes at one point, but are still in with a shout. They simply must win here and, with Newcastle losing six of their last seven in the league, there has to only be one victor.

Man City v West Ham – Home win
City have somehow clawed the title race back into their hands, and effectively only need a draw here to reclaim the Premier League. It will be a nervy affair but, with the Hammers having nothing to play for, it’s hard to see past Manuel Pellegrini’s men.

Norwich v Arsenal – Draw
Norwich are all but relegated; only mathematics, nothing short of the ridiculous is preserving their status.  While it is unlikely that they will beat Arsenal by more than 17 goals, they will definitely put up a fight.  The Gunners have secured the top four spot, and may rest key players for the FA Cup final.  A draw could be likely.

Southampton v Manchester United – Away win
The Red Devils need to win, and hope Spurs lose if they are to guarantee a Europa League spot for next season.  Ryan Giggs has said there is ‘no pressure’ on him to qualify, indications that the hierarchy may see it as a distraction.  Southampton have enjoyed a fantastic campaign though may come up short against a rejuvenated United side.

Sunderland v Swansea – Home win
What the Black Cats have achieved under Gus Poyet is nothing short of a miracle.  Sebastian Larsson and Lee Catermole, who both have knocks, could be two of four changes.  Swansea’s Michu and Angel Rangel will miss out, but the feel good factor at the Stadium of Light could inspire another Sunderland win.

Tottenham v Aston Villa – Home win
Securing a Europa League position will be seen as a success by Tim Sherwood, though there is no doubt that Daniel Levy would have preferred the Champions League.  Spurs will want to end their season on a high in front of a home crowd, while Aston Villa’s team is already on the beach.

West Brom v Stoke – Draw
A point will mathematically secure the Baggies’ status for next season.  Realistically they are already safe.  Pepe Mel has achieved the minimum of what he was expected to do when he was appointed.  Stoke have guaranteed a respectable mid-table finish under Mark Hughes who has made them more entertaining this season, though a draw could be the likeliest result.

Sampdoria v Napoli – Away win
There is a danger of a Coppa Italia hangover for Rafa Benitez, but his opponents here are in mid-table and have nothing left to play for. Napoli comfortably won the reverse fixture, so they should do so again.
