Manchester United and Arsenal meets in the highlight of the day in the Premier League while Lille and Lyon wrap up an exciting round of the Ligue 1.
A smaller but more exciting selection of games awaits football fans on Sunday, with derbies and high profile matches scheduled in all the major European leagues. Manchester United and Arsenal lock horns in the Premier League, while Lyon and Lille play late in the evening in the French first division. Genoa and Sampdoria compete in a local clash while Celta Vigo and Real Sociedad play a regional derby.
Manchester United Chase First Win at Old Trafford
Manchester United and Arsenal had busy weeks recently, with games scheduled in both the domestic championship and European tournaments. Both have met expectations, so they come into this match ready to also improve their performance in the Premier League. The former champions currently sit in the second half of the standings, so there is tremendous pressure on them to improve on a short notice. Manchester United are favorites at bet365 Sports with odds of 11/10 why Arsenal are priced at 23/10.
Lyon and Lille Hope to Extend Invincible Run
Lyon and Lille have suffered if you are defeats the season, with the host being the only undefeated team in the French first division. They also have the best home record, with three victories, one draw and a single goal conceded why they scored eight of their own. The solid defensive performance should come in handy against Lyon, a team that tends to concede a lot regardless of opponents. Surprisingly enough, bet365 Sports gives identical odds of 17/10 on each team to prevail, in spite of the hosts having an edge.
Red-Hot Sampdoria play the Derby of Genoa
The city of Genoa is once again in turmoil, as the local teams play a derby that is of little interest elsewhere in Italy. Sampdoria is the team in better form at the time the game is scheduled, hence its favorite status and odds of 9/10. They have won the last four games in a row and scored plenty of goals against stronger teams, but lost the last direct match. A bet on Genoa to win will result in odds of 3/1 at 888 Sport, which isn’t too much given the fact that the team didn’t score in the last three matches.
Celta Vigo and Real Sociedad Match Heats up Northern Spain
Celta Vigo is losing games at an alarming rate and seems unable to exercise pressure on opponents even when playing at home. By comparison, Real Sociedad thrives on the road and currently leads the Spanish first division without dropping a single away game. In the match scheduled for 3 PM UK time, they are justly favorites at 888 Sport with odds of 13/10, as opposed to 2/1 on the home side. The only concern ahead of this fixture is fatigue as they have played quite a few matches, including Europa League fixtures.
