Memorial Day weekend is always one of the best few days for sports, and this one is no exception.

In the European football world (and everywhere around the globe), this is one of the bigger weekends on the calendar.

After the cup final craziness yesterday, the FIFA U20 World Cup continues its run in Poland, while the UEFA Champions League spots in Italy come down today.

Atalanta (third, 66 points) and Inter (fourth, 66 points) are one point ahead of AC Milan (fifth, 65 points) for the final two sport in next year’s Champions League group stage.

The two teams that are in pole position currently both have home games , with AC Milan has to go on the road to SPAL and get a result. All games are played simultaneously, to make sure no team knows its fate earlier in the day.

Atalanta has four straight wins against Sassuolo, and won 6-2 in December. Inter has six straight wins against Empoli, with a 1-0 win last time.

Atalanta and Inter are heavy favorites. Will they both get it done?

In U20 play, Mexico has the early game, and must win against Japan after its loss to Italy to stay alive in Group B. Italy can lock up the group with a win over Ecuador.

In Group A, Poland is a -10000 favorite against Tahiti, while the other contest pits Senegal against Colombia.

The Points Bet NJ site is your best bet for U20 odds, as some books do not have the odds because it is not senior team betting.
