Winning Streaks Tested in United vs City Derby
Manchester City have accomplished remarkable thing by winning 21 games in a row. They are well-positioned to win both the Premier League and the Champions League this year. The final hurdle on the domestic front is posed by Manchester United, as their city rivals face them on Sunday. The match is scheduled for 4:30 PM UK time, with no fans cheering from the stands and United as underdogs. bet365 Sports offers odds of 3/5 on the hosts and 4/1 on the visitors, in what should be a very fun game to watch.
Real Madrid and Atletico Play a Coin Flip Derby
Atletico Madrid are showing the first signs of weakness after losing back-to-back games without scoring. They have a great opportunity to double down on the recent Villarreal win and defeat their city rivals on Sunday afternoon. The two teams meet at 3:15 PM UK time in a match that could literally go either way. The odds of 17/10 offered by bet365 Sports on each team to prevail clearly indicate the narrow nature of this contest. A draw is also likely under these circumstances, an outcome priced at 23/10 by the bookie.
Liverpool Reassesses Objectives ahead of Fulham Clash
Liverpool have no choice but to concede defeat this season and forsake any dreams of winning the championship. Their recent form is nothing short of atrocious and the best case scenario is to secure a Champions League berth this year. This is definitely within their reach, as they have a reasonable schedule for the remaining rounds. It can all start with a victory over Fulham, a highly anticipated result. 888 Sport will pay punters at 1/4 if Liverpool wins and offer massive odds of 10/1 on a Fulham upset.
AC Milan Hopes to Regain Road Game Prowess in Verona
An exceptional season start propelled AC Milan to the top of the standings, but the team is showing clear signs of weakness. A single victory in the last six matches prompted their downfall and allowed Inter Milan to overtake them. If they are to stay within striking distance of their city rivals, AC Milan must win on Sunday in Verona. 888 Sport offers even odds on such an outcome, while pricing the stringy home team at 3/1. The draw shouldn’t be discarded either, especially with such high odds of 13/5 on this result.
