Delightful Saturday for the Fans of the La Liga and BundesligaPublished June 13, 2020 by Florin P
Bayern and Dortmund continue their Bundesliga rivalry on Saturday, while Villarreal and Barcelona play difficult away matches in the La Liga
La Liga and Bundesliga matches will provide football fans with a delightful Saturday. That’s because the bulk of the games scheduled for this weekend will take place on this day and will involve the best German and Spanish teams. Dortmund and Bayern will be trying to improve their position at the top of the tables when they take on subpar opponents. In Spain, Barcelona and Villarreal play on the road in matches they are expected to win with relative ease.
Dortmund Sets Sail for a Smooth Win on the Road
Playing on the road has never boded well for Dortmund, but on Saturday they take on a weaker opponent. Düsseldorf is one of the teams struggling to avoid relegation and they won’t give the runners-up too much trouble. In this lopsided match, Dortmund will have to do without some of its key players which are either injured or suspended. Even so, the visitors are priced at 7/20 by bet365 Sports to prevail, while those who bet on the home side will enjoy odds of 6/1.
Bayern to Crush M’gladbach’s Hopes on Saturday
Bayern is doing everything by the book in its quest to win another Bundesliga championship. They have a significant advantage over Dortmund and they could extend the lead with a victory over M’Gladbach. This is a difficult opponent, but one that has traditionally caused very few problems for the reigning champions. The match will be played in Munich at 7:30 PM UK time and it has a clear favorite. bet365 Sports prices the home team at 7/20 while offering exceptional odds of 6/1 on an underdog win.
Barcelona Clings on First Place before Visiting Mallorca
Barcelona resumes the La Liga quest for trophies as the leader of the Spanish first division. Not having home pitch advantage ahead of this match against Mallorca shouldn’t be a problem for the reigning champions. This is the last match of the day, scheduled at 9 PM UK time and it is played on a stadium without fans. This explains why Barcelona only get odds of 3/4 at 888 Sport in spite of playing on the road. Punters willing to take a leap of faith with the home side will enjoy odds of 10/1 at the same bookie.
Celta Vigo and Villarreal Play a Perfect Coin Flip Match
Celta Vigo and Villarreal are once again having disappointing seasons that they will try to salvage in the remaining rounds. In the first round schedule since the resumption of the Spanish first division, the two teams meet in a perfectly balanced match. 888 Sport offers identical odds of 16/10 on each team to prevail, while offering 23/10 on the match to end undecided. Given the high stakes of this match and the fact that it is played after a long break, the prospect of teams splitting points makes perfect sense.
