Difficult Away Matches for Europe’s Finest on SundayPublished May 12, 2019 by Florin P
Liverpool and Manchester City play their final cards for the Premier League trophy on Sunday, while United and Arsenal chase a Europa League berth.
The Premier League concludes on Sunday and the second to last rounds are being played in Spain, Italy and France. Winners will be decided in Germany and England, while more Champions League and Europa League qualifiers will be revealed. This provides punters with excellent betting opportunities, as these matches enjoy ample coverage at leading bookmakers such as bet365 Sports and 888 Sport.
The Last Premier League Chapter Unfolds on Sunday
A single round is left to be played in the English Premier League and the top six teams are expected to win easily. Manchester United, their city rivals and Liverpool play against unmotivated teams and the combined odds don’t exceed 3/4 at Intertops Sportsbook. Punters get even odds on Arsenal to defeat Burnley on the road and Chelsea are priced at 6/5 at Leicester. Both have played difficult midweek matches in the Europa League semifinals, which explain the rather high odds.
Sevilla and Valencia Scramble to Save a Disappointing Season
Valencia are on the verge of staging one of the most incredible comebacks in their La Liga history. After an awful season start, they have won most of the matches and a victory over Alaves would bring them closer to a Champions League berth. Winner Sports offer odds of 1/2 on their victory against an opponent in free fall, identical as for a Barcelona win over Getafe. In that match, the visitors are highly motivated, since they chase their first Champions League presence. Sevilla have an incredibly tough job at defeating Atletico Madrid on the road after squandering multiple chances against weak opponents.
Juventus and Celtic Play Hollow Derbies on Sunday
Juventus have won the Serie A some time ago and play only for pride against AS Roma at 7:30 PM UK time. By comparison, the hosts are highly motivated to win, as they desperately need the three points for a chance to play in the Champions League next season. Both teams get identical odds of 9/5 at bet365 Sports, in a derby that has lost much of its glamour. The same can be said about the match between Rangers and Celtic, where the visitors have already won the Scottish Premier League. This match takes place at noon and the hosts are priced at 2/1, while the reigning champions get odds of 7/5 on the road.
Marseille and Lyon Reignite Old Rivalry in Key Game
Olympic Marseille have lost virtually any chance of playing in a European competition next season, but they are nonetheless motivated for the late Sunday match. At 8 PM UK time, they welcome Lyon and they will go to great lengths to deny their presence in the Champions League. Most of the matches at the Velodrome have ended undecided, but a draw is not acceptable this time. 888 Sport credits the visitors with the first chance and odds of 7/5, as opposed to odds of 2/1 on the home side.
