Our Saturday football accumulator is an 11/2 treble that comes courtesy of selections from all…
The majority of European league action might be over but there’s still the small matter of cup final matches to be settled with this weekend’s mouth-watering schedule.
Meanwhile, there’s still enough to sink our teeth into thanks to the Scandinavian leagues and we’re looking to make the most of it with this Saturday treble, which pays out at just over 3/1.
Fingers crossed for a perfect end to the month.

Falkirk V Inverness CT. 3PM
John Hughes’ men stunned Celtic to book their place in this shock Scottish Cup final and Caley Thistle will be firm favourites to complete an incredible by beating Championship side Falkirk at Hampden.
It has been a brilliant season for the SPL side, who have already sealed their place in Europe with a third-placed league finish, and will be in good spirits after winning three of their final four matches. Saturday’s showdown is a great chance for the likes of Edward Ofere or Marley Wilkins to write their name in Inverness folklore and we think the favourites will prevail.
Falkirk’s route to the final was relatively easy in comparison, with a semi-final against Championship rivals Hibernian providing their most difficult challenge. Reaching the final is a great achievement for Peter Houston’s men but they’re unlikely to claim a third Scottish Cup trophy here.
This season’s competition has been packed with shock results and Falkirk will be quietly confident of producing one final upset. However, we fancy Caley to shine.

Hammarby IF V Halmstad. 3PM
Whilst the majority of Europe’s top leagues have reached the summer break, Sweden’s Allsvenskan is just hitting top gear after 10 rounds of matches. Sadly, rock-bottom Halmstad are yet to get out of first gear and are likely to suffer another disappointment as they head to the Tele2 Arena.
Jan Jonsson’s men make the trip to Stockholm on the back of a five-game losing streak and have additionally picked up just one point from a possible 12 on the road. Equally worrying is the fact they’ve scored just two away goals.
Hammarby aren’t in great form, picking up just one point from the last available 15, but Nanne Bergstrand’s will fancy their chances of getting back to winning ways against the division’s bottom side.
Despite their poor recent record, the hosts are playing well on home turf and do boast three wins and a draw from their five matches at the Tele2. Expect them to edge things once more.

Levski Sofia V Cherno More. 6PM
Our final selection comes from the Bulgarian Cup final at the Stadion Lazur as Levski Sofia look to salvage a slightly disappointing campaign by lifting silverware against Cherno More.
The giants of Bulgarian football finished their league campaign well, winning five of the last six matches, but still ended the campaign inside the bottom half. However, Stoycho Stoev’s men will be thrilled if they can claim a 25th cup title here.
Levski should be confident after winning each of the previous meetins in 2015, including a 2-0 away triumph just earlier this month. They seem to have Cherno’s card marked and if they stamp their authority early then this could be a relatively routine win for the favourites.
Cherno are capable of causing an upset but did lose some momentum with their final league defeat to Lokomotiv Plovdiv. Levski score a lot more goals than the underdogs and that should be a telling feature of this final. Back the favourites to win.
