Derbies Return to All Major European Football Leagues on SundayPublished October 27, 2019 by Florin P
This Sunday afternoon shows a lot of promise as the Champions League reigning winners welcome the finalists in a new age Premier League derby.
Sunday is once again the best day for competitive football continent-wide, as most of the anticipated derbies are scheduled for the last day of the week. Liverpool and Tottenham lock horns in the Premier League, while PSG and Marseille reignite an old rivalry. There’s plenty of action in the Italian Serie A and the Spanish La Liga, where the teams involved fight for a place in the Champions League next year.
Liverpool and Tottenham Reenact the Champions League Final
The most exciting match of this round in the Premier League is a replay of last season’s Champions League final. Liverpool prevailed in that match with relative ease and they’re expected to double down on that performance at 4:30 PM UK time. They welcome Tottenham at Anfield Road where they have won all the games played so far. 888 Sport only offers odds of 1/2 on the current leaders to win, while pricing a victory for the visitors at 5/1.
PSG and Marseille Reignite Timeless Rivalry
After a relatively rocky start, things have returned to normal in the French first division where PSG have a comfortable lead. The reigning champions are also cruising in the most important European competition and will chase their fifth victory at Parc de Princes. Neymar is doubtful for the match scheduled at 8 PM UK time, but the hosts have plenty of quality strikers to make his absence go unnoticed. Punters can only expect odds of 1/4 at bet365 Sports on the hosts to win, but backing Marseille will result in odds of 11/1.
Two Derbies Light up the Serie A on Sunday
Italian football fans have to wait until the end of the week to bet and watch the most exciting matches of this round. AS Roma play first against AC Milan in a match where they are only narrow favorites to prevail. Winner Sports offers odds of 11/10 on the home team, while a bet on the visitors will trigger odds of 5/2. The final match of the day between Fiorentina and Lazio is also the most balanced and difficult to predict. These two teams are perfectly matched, hence the identical odds of 17/10 on each to win.
Valencia and Sevilla Eye a Place on the Podium
Valencia have salvaged a point late in the game against Atletico Madrid and are hoping for even more on the road. That’s because they play against Osasuna, a newly promoted team with few experienced players in their starting formation. Having said this, the team from Pamplona is yet to lose a match at home, so it comes as no surprise that each team gets odds of 8/5 to prevail. Sevilla should have a slightly easier task at home against Getafe, a team that traditionally struggles on the road and concedes plenty of goals.
