  • High profile sporting events to look forward to this month

The world of sports betting is a fast-moving one - as soon as one event concludes, focus switches straight to another, and with the days getting brighter and longer, there are certainly a lot of exciting sporting events to place matched bets on this May.

Here are just six of the events due to take place over the course of this month on which you may fancy a flutter.

European Rugby Champions Cup Final

The competition that replaced the Heineken Cup in 2014 has already captured the hearts of followers of the continent's Rugby Union action, with Toulon emerging victorious in the 2015 final. With the holders having been knocked out at the quarter-final stage by France's Racing 92, it remains to be seen who will clinch glory at Grand Stade de Lyon on 14th May.

Conclusion of the Premier League season

It's been a while since English top-level football was characterised by such sheer unpredictability, with Leicester City still in a strong position to claim the unlikeliest Premier League title win ever. However, with the Foxes facing a tricky last few games, there's still a chance for close followers Tottenham to emerge as once-unfancied victors themselves.

FA Cup Final

By the time you read this, the late April FA Cup semi-finals may have already taken place, determining which two teams will advance to the Wembley final out of Everton, Manchester United, Crystal Palace and Watford. All four managers have ample motivation to win this trophy, particularly - one imagines - Louis van Gaal, whose job at Old Trafford has been the subject of persistent rumour.

French Open

Commencing in earnest on the 22nd and commencing with the men's final on 5th June, the only Grand Slam tennis tournament held on clay is widely reputed to be the most physically demanding event of its type in the world. 31-year old Swiss Stan Wawrinka is the defending men's champion, while Serena Williams will look to repeat her 2015 success that brought her a 20th career Grand Slam singles title.

Champions League Final

While Barcelona were widely tipped to defend their 2015 crown, their elimination at the hands of Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals leaves an appetisingly open contest for glory at the 28th May Final in the legendary San Siro in Milan. But before then, there's the small matter of semi-final clashes pitting Manchester City against Real Madrid and matching Barca's conquerors with Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich.

Monaco Grand Prix

Sporting glamour events simply come no more glamorous than this fabled street race around the Circuit de Monaco. The narrow course with its many tight bends and elevation changes represents one of the greatest challenges to the skill of any Formula One driver. Nico Rosberg won last year's race for Mercedes, albeit controversially, and given his stellar run of Grand Prix wins since late last year, who would bet against him topping the podium once more in the Principality?
