Looking at Juventus Coppa Italia finals and h2h with Lazio records in recent years.
2012 - Napoli 2-0
2015 - Juventus 2-1(1-1 after FT)
2016 - Juventus 1-0(aet)
In the past 5 meetings at Rome against Lazio, 4 out of 5 games have ended on under 2.5 goals.
I think it will go under for this finals as well. Should be a close game with Juventus winning again but not sure if they can do it in FT.
Mainz and Ausburg just need a draw because of their better GD. The most interesting game will be Hamburg v Wolfsburg. Loser will play in the relegation playoff game.
Maybe Dortmund and Hoffenheim parlay considering both teams need to win.
This is a bad day.
Portland Timbers -0.75 @ 1.99(pinnacle)
Atlanta has hit a bump in recent weeks. 2 losses in a row and conceding 3 goals each in both losses. Timbers haven't fared too well either. 1 may excuse them as they are without 2 of their best players in Valeri and Nagbe(only against Earthquakes) for the past 2 games. Valeri has trained this week and should be back. This should take some responsibility off Blanco. Atlanta hasn't been too impressive against the stronger sides although they did get a credible draw against Toronto. I believe the strong home advantage for the Timbers will see Atlanta suffer another defeat.
Montreal Impact -0.25 @ 1.94(pinnacle)
Crew wrapped up their 3 games home stand with another loss. It was really disappointing considering they didn't really rotate(a 3 games in 8 days week) and Toronto was without Giovinco. As a result of that loss, they only managed to get 3 points out the 9 available. This season, Impact has been disappointing so far. Platti has been rather poor for this standards but I believe it's just a matter of time we see the real him again. A weary Crew coming to Montreal could be the perfect stage for him. I'm going for the safer option here, I believe Impact won't lose(could draw) but still not totally convinced about them yet.
DC United -0.5 @ 1.96(pinnacle)
Has Philly really turned the corner? I doubt so. Afterall, their win last week was their 1st in almost nine months, that's how bad they have been. DC United will be disappointed that they didn't get a win to start their 3 games homestand. While it's still early in the season, their home record is less than satisfactory, only 7 points out of the possible 15. They know that they have to start getting the home wins if they want to make the playoffs. After Ben Olsen outburst(told him guys that they were full of shit) last week, I think DC United will put in a better performance to get a win and bring Philly back to earth.
I'm on Juventus to win the trophy at evens.
Houston Dynamo -0.5 @ 1.93(pinnacle)
Whitecaps may have 2 straight home wins in a row but Houston Dynamo is a very different side to average Montreal or poor Rapids. They have beaten quality teams like Sounders and Red Bulls at home so far. Only complacency against Minnesota prevented them from a 6 home wins out of 6 record. They should prove too strong for Whitecaps especially when the league leading scorer Cubo Torres is back too. Considering Houston poor road record, this is a pivotal game for them too as they will embark on a 3 games road trip next week.

Woeful performance of Real but typical Zidane game. If it wasn't for Savic' idiotic defending against Benzema, they along with their lucky coach would have been knocked out of the competition.
Won't be so lucky against Juventus in the finals.
Toronto +0.5 @ 1.75(pinnacle)
These 2 teams met about 3 weeks ago where Crew came out on top with a 2-1 win. Toronto was all over them and deservingly scored 1st. After that, they switched off and allow Crew to get a comeback win. Since that defeat, Toronto form has been irresistible as they won 4 straight games. They even managed to get a 1-0 win over Sounders in Seattle with a weakened squad last weekend. 4 starters(Giovinco, Vazquez, Beitashour, Zavaleta) who are rested for the game against Sounders should all be back. It's likely Altidore who could be rested(maybe on the bench) for this game. I think Toronto will not be so complacent this time round. The return of Giovinco and Vazquez(lead the league with 6 assists) should also give them a stronger lineup than the 1 that played against the Sounders. I think they should be able to at least get a draw this time round.
I like Everton -1. In 2017, they have won all their home games by at least 2 goals. The only time they didn't was against Chelsea a few weeks ago.
If Celta can push Man Utd to extra time or all the way till the 90th min in midweek, then Spurs should be a good play.

Yes, I will definitely be checking out the ELO and see how it goes.
MLS. I will also try to research my local league which imo is the most unpredictable league I have seen.
I guess Hull killed alot of parlay today.
Adelaide -1 @ 1.77(marathonbet)
This is for the ACL game on Tues.
Jiangsu has not included any of their foreigners for this trip to Australia so it's confirmed Jiangsu will be fielding a all chinese team. Adelaide has shown alot of heart and resilient in the last 3 games that gave them an outside side of qualification. They came back to draw against Jeju on matchday 3, beat the same team at Jeju in the return leg, then coming back 2-0 down to draw 3-3 against Gamba in the last game. Facing a weakened and low on confidence Jiangsu side, I believe they will have too much for them.
*I think odds is likely to drop further. If you have a marathonbet account and like the play, you may want to get in early.
FC Dallas DNB @ 1.92(pinnacle)
RSL will still be a pretty incomplete team, especially in defence. While defender Aaron Maund returns, another defender Chris Schuler will be ruled out because of suspension. 1st choice gk Nick Rimando remains out while captain and defensive midfielder Kyle Beckerman is still considered as doubtful. This game will also see the return of ex RSL legend Javier Morales. I believe he will be really motivated to show what RSL has missed. Facing a depleted RSL defence, it's probably a good chance for FC Dallas to finally get their attack clicking.
Yes, Sydney ftw!!!
Hoffenheim losses this season has been only by a goal but bookmakers are making Dortmund a -1.25 goal favourite? Could even get Hoffenheim +1.5 @ 1.7 at Pinnacle.
Sounders -0.5 @ 1.88(pinnacle)
This is a quick turnaround for Toronto. They have to travel about 3500km to Seattle to play the earliest game of the Sunday schedule. They started their last 2 games with the same lineup so it's almost certain there will be some rotation. The onslaught by Orlando in the 2nd half will also likely takes it toll on them. To make things worse, they will have another midweek game against Columbus Crew on next Thursday. That's a conference game which is likely to be more of a priority for them than a revenge game. Sounders will be disappointed that they failed to pick up a 2nd straight win last week but they should be able to do it against a rotated or tired Toronto side(depending on which team Gregg Vanney plays).
Sporting KC -0.5 @ 1.87(marathonbet)
NYRB coach Jesse March has hinted at squad rotation because of this is a 2 games week or 3 games in 8 days(if you include last weekend game). I believe this will be the game that their key players will be rested as this is an out-of-conference game. The key players will then return for the conference game against Philadelphia Union. As for SKC, I doubt they will be making too many changes. This is a home game and their game against Minnesota will be 4 days later(a day later than NYRB). With NYRB probably resting their key players and SKC being unbeaten at home for the last 13 games, I fancy their chance to wrap up their 2 games home stand with their 2nd straight win.
Hoffenheim played like rubbish today. Got lucky with the goal.
Let's see if I can go 4-0.
Atlanta Utd -1 @ 2.14(marathonbet)
Finally home sweet home after a pretty fruitful road trip, collecting 5 points from 12 available. DC United has done well in the last game to get a point against NER despite having a few injuries. Atlanta is a much stronger outfit(still missing top scorer Martinez though) and they will be playing behind another sold out crowd, I think they should be able to get a win here before heading off for another 2 games road trip.
Hoffenheim -1 @ 1.99(marathonbet)
After going 120 minutes in midweek, you can't help but think some of the Eintracht Frankfurt players are going to have a cup hangover. There will be tired legs and some are probably already thinking of the cup finals despite it being 3 weeks away. With Dortmund also failing to beat Koln today, Hoffenheim should be pretty motivated and should be able reclaim 3rd spot with a win over a weary Eintracht Frankfurt side.
Only 2 goals in 4 games.

Just going to add some reasoning. This will be the last NDL at White Hart Lane and I expect Spurs to be fired up. They pretty much seal up 2nd spot and now just want to add some salt to Arsenal wound. Alot have been said about Arsenal but they haven't done too well against the good teams since beating Chelsea earlier in the season.

Read from another website that there is some match fixing stuff going on in this league. The game between IFK Goteborg and AIK is postponed. AIK being offered money to lose.
