Decisive Championship Games Played Midweek in Premier League and La LigaPublished May 10, 2022 by Florin P
Manchester City and Liverpool play decisive matches for the Premier League, while Arsenal and Tottenham try to secure the last Champions League spot.
The most important European football leagues will reach their conclusions in May. For the best Spanish and English teams, this is the final chance to grab points that can handle the title, secure a European League berth, or save them from relegation. Six key matches are scheduled for this week and punters can bet on all of them at 1xBet and bet365 sports from Monday to Thursday.
Liverpool and Manchester City Must Win on the Road
Liverpool dropped points against Tottenham and now needs Manchester City to fail for a chance at the championship. Winning on the road against Aston Villa is the likely result, reflected by odds of 1/2 at 1xBet and bet365 sports. Their victory would be inconsequential if Manchester City wins on Tuesday, against a Wolverhampton team in disarray. The hosts are winless in the last four games, while City won the previous four Premier League games and are expected to do it again, with odds of 3/10 at bet365 sports.
Reeling Chelsea Takes on Desperate Leeds
Chelsea needs a single point to play in the Champions League next season and three games to obtain it. The Blues will have the first opportunity on Wednesday when they travel to Leeds. The visitors are priced at 7/10 by bet365 sports, while a victory for the home side will produce odds of 4/1. Leads are desperate to pick up all three points; otherwise, they are very likely to relegate and return to the Championship.
Sevilla and Mallorca Go for Three Points
Sevilla has a seven-point advantage over its city rivals and needs a single point to play in the Champions League next season. Victory at home over Mallorca is quite attainable, as suggested by the odds of 13/20 offered by 1xBet. The hosts split points in the last two games, but the visitors lost them both while conceding a combined eight goals. Mallorca will need to put all precautions aside because they are below the relegation line and try to convert the odds of 5/1 into a victory.
Mission Impossible for Levante in Madrid
Levante only has theoretical chances to avoid relegation, and the decisive game will be played on Thursday. Real Madrid welcomes them for the second to last home game, one that the hosts should win, as reflected by odds of 1/2. The only glimmer of hope for Levante and those backing them at odds of 5/1 with 1xBet is that the hosts are only concerned about the Champions League final.
Tottenham and Arsenal Play in the Champions League
Arsenal and Tottenham are separated by just four points in their quest to secure a Champions League berth. The Gunners play on the road and start with the second chance and odds of 5/2 at 1xBet, but could settle for a draw. Tottenham kept their dream alive with a draw against Liverpool, but unless they convert the odds of 11/10 and defeat Arsenal, they won’t play in the top European football league.
