4th April: Chelsea vs Manchester United – Chelsea to score 200th Premier League goal vs Manchester United

This would require Chelsea to score four goals at Stamford Bridge on the day, something they have only managed once in the Premier League so far this season, albeit in a thrilling 4-4 draw against Manchester City. They have also only scored four goals or more twice at home to Manchester United in the entire Premier League era, so it would be some feat to repeat the trick.

Nonetheless, Chelsea have an exciting front line that can score plenty on their day, but they are also guilty of missing multiple big chances. However, should this come through, it should draw big odds from betting markets!

13th April: Torino vs Juventus – Juventus to score 250th Serie A goal vs Torino

This requires Juventus to score at least two goals in the Turin derby, which they have done in the last two H2Hs. The Old Lady should be favourites going into this one, as they are currently third in the Serie A at the time of writing, 18 points above Torino in 11th.

Nonetheless, betting markets should offer reasonable odds for Juve to score plenty of goals here.

21st April: Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen – Borussia Dortmund to score 150th Bundesliga goal vs Bayer Leverkusen

Like Chelsea above, this would require Borussia Dortmund to score four or more goals at home, against the current Bundesliga leaders no less. A tough ask, but they have done so twice in the league already this season, albeit against lesser opposition.

Dortmund have also scored four or more goals at home to Leverkusen in the Bundesliga four times before, but the visitors are a formidable force this season, and this outcome would have fairly long odds.

21st April: Real Madrid vs Barcelona – Barcelona to score 300th La Liga goal vs Real Madrid

The El Clasico towards the end of April could be a crucial one in the title race, as Real Madrid are currently eight points clear at the top of the table, with Barcelona in second. Real will be favourites at home, but anything can happen in this fixture.

The La Liga goal margins are so tight between them, with Real currently scoring 301 goals to Barca's 299, but the visitors could score their 300th in this game. One goal is not likely to be enough to win, but Barca are very capable.

Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur

28th April: Tottenham vs Arsenal – Arsenal to score 300th goal vs Tottenham

The North London derby at the end of April could have a major impact in terms of the title and top-four race in the Premier League. Tottenham are looking to finish in the top four and qualify for the UEFA Champions League for next season, while the Gunners are chasing a first Premier League title in 20 years.

Arsenal have historically got the better of this fixture, and should be favourites going into this one given each team's respective league positions. They need two goals at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to reach the milestone, something they managed last season by winning 2-0 away from home.
