Classic Derbies Rock European Football Championships on SundayPublished November 11, 2018 by Florin P
Iconic football cities come to life on Sunday as Manchester United and their City rivals, Monaco, PSG, AC Milan and Juventus square off.
Even though the Champions League and Europa League matches have Football fans at the edge of their seats, it is the Sunday matches that represent the highlight of the week. Across the continent, the best football clubs compete for valuable points, as they chase new trophies in the most competitive European leagues. Serie A, La Liga, Ligue 1, Premier League and Bundesliga matches start early in the afternoon and punters can find the best odds on all these games at bet365 Sports and 888 Sport.
Manchester Turns into a Raging Volcano
Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal play at home in the English Premier League and all of them are expected to pick up three points against Fulham, Everton and Wolverhampton. However, the most important match played in this division is the one between Manchester City and Manchester United, which starts at 4:30 PM UK time. The reigning champions get odds of only 2/5 to prevail in front of their fans, where they have won all six matches played so far. Manchester United were only able to win three out of six away matches, but staged some incredible comebacks and enjoy tempting odds of 7/1 at bet365 Sports.
AC Milan Welcome Juventus on Sunday Evening
The reigning champions travel to Milan for a difficult match against a team that has won the Serie A many times over the years. This time, they have the better squad and an impressive track record, with five victories in just as many games played on the road. Not surprisingly, 888 Sport expects them to prevail in the match scheduled to start at 7:30 PM and offers odds of 9/10 on their victory. By comparison, the hosts are given odds of 16/5 to win and even odds on a double chance wager.
Earlier in the day, Atalanta and Inter Milan play in a match that can decide the configuration of the podium. Atalanta has home pitch advantage, but because of recent results, the odds offered by Winner Sports are identical. Punters can get a value of 17/10 on either team to win and 23/10 on a draw, which is a likely outcome given the head to head results. Elsewhere, AS Roma have home-field advantage against Sampdoria, while their city rivals Lazio play on the road against Sassuolo and both are favorites.
The Best La Liga Teams Play on Sunday
In the Spanish La Liga, the top teams are supposed to have an easy day, as they play against weaker opponents. Barcelona is the overwhelming favorite to pick up all three points at home against Betis but punters can only expect odds of 1/5. Intertops makes it much more tempting to bet on Sevilla to win at home at 4/5 and a similar value of 7/10 is offered on Real Madrid to win on the road. They have had their fair share of difficult matches, but are credited with the first chance against Celta Vigo. The revelation of the season, Alaves will try to return to their winning ways at 11 AM UK time in the match against Huesca
Past Champions Play in Ligue 1 Derbies
In the last match of the day, starting at 8 PM UK time, PSG and Monaco meet in a game that would normally cause a lot of enthusiasm. The reigning champions play on the road and they are very likely to extend the misery of the team that has won the championship two years ago. Punters can only expect to receive odds of 7/20 at bet365 Sports on the visitors to prevail, while cashing in on the great value of 8/1 for the hosts. The reason for these high odds is that Monaco struggles in the relegation area with only one victory and seven points in 12 matches. They and Guingamp are the only two teams yet to win a match at home this season.
