Difficult Road Matches for the Top European Teams this SaturdayPublished October 31, 2020 by Florin P
The teams gunning for a trophy in some of the strongest European football leagues will play on the road on Saturday afternoon and evening.
There is a great football weekend brewing for European punters, as the most important championships are underway. Some of the teams competing for the trophy will play on the road against highly motivated opponents with strong defensive record. Bookmakers credit them with the first chance, but they will have to fight hard for the points that are up for grabs, even when playing on stadiums with no fans.
Nantes Try to Stop Surging PSG in their Tracks
PSG is back at the top of the French first division after a mediocre start and will try to consolidate its position this Saturday. In the match scheduled for 8 PM UK time, they travel to Nantes, where they will take on a defensive minded home side. PSG has won the last six games in the domestic championship and is likely to pick up yet another victory against the familiar opponent. 888 Sport offers odds of 7/20 on the visitors to prevail and 15/2 on Nantes to hold their ground and walk away with all three points.
Fatigued Sevilla Take on Athletic in Bilbao
Sevilla is a team in good form but its players are under tremendous pressure after playing back-to-back games against top opponents. Their midweek Champions League fixture took its toll and they only had three days to recuperate and field a competitive starting formation. On the road against Athletic Bilbao they need to play their best as the Basques have a strong home record. 888 Sport regards the visitors as slight favorites with odds of 16/10, while offering similar value of 19/10 on a home win.
Reeling Barcelona Need Crushing Win over Alaves
Barcelona sits in the 12th place after five rounds, an unacceptable performance for the former champions. While they play much better in the most important European competition, they are still struggling to win back-to-back games in La Liga. A match on the road against Alaves should be the perfect opportunity, given their good head to head record. That’s why bet365 Sports only offers odds of 1/2 on Barcelona to emerge victorious away from home, while rewarding punters willing to back Alaves with odds of 6/1.
Winless Sheffield Welcome Manchester City
Sheffield United used to be a force to be reckoned with in home games, but this season the team struggles heavily regardless of venue. A home game against Manchester City is always a challenge even for the better teams, but this weekend’s fixture is a truly lopsided affair. The hosts are winless this season and given the odds of 15/2 offered by bet365 Sports, they are unlikely to improve today. Placing a bet on the favorites will only translate into odds of 7/20, as Manchester has no injured or suspended players.
