English and Italian Top Leagues Steal the Show on SundayPublished November 29, 2020 by Florin P
The race for a Champions League berth heats up on Sunday in the Premier League, when the best teams from London take their place in the spotlight.
The weekend ends on a positive note for football fans, with the most exciting matches being scheduled in the Premier League and Serie A. Some of the best teams from the nations’ capitals are scheduled to play on Sunday afternoon in games that could determine their placement at the end of the season.
Manchester United Threatens Southampton’s Invincible Run
Southampton has emerged as one of the hottest teams in the Premier League after avoiding defeat in seven consecutive matches. They will have home pitch advantage in the game starting at 2 PM UK time, but are underdogs against Manchester United. The Red Devils get even odds at bet365 Sports, whereas the Saints are priced at 27/10 by the same bookmaker. The last time Southampton defeated Manchester United was in 2016, with many of the head to head matches since then resulting in draws.
Chelsea and Tottenham Play the Derby of London
The most anticipated match of the day is played in London and it has Chelsea and Tottenham as protagonists. The Blues are favorites to prevail after winning five consecutive games with a single goal allowed. Their performance in the Champions League is just as impressive and bet365 Sports offers odds of 11/10 on their victory. Tottenham have just defeated Manchester City at the end of a match dominated by the visitors and if they cause an upset on the road, punters who back them will be paid at 24/10.
Arsenal Welcomes Wolverhampton at Emirates
Wolverhampton and Arsenal had to settle for low scoring goals in the last match and have struggled to score goals recently. They are separated by a single point in the standings, with Wolverhampton having the slight edge that can grow if they cause an upset on the road. Odds of 27/10 offered by 888 Sport on them to win are justified, as they only defeated struggling teams on the road. The Gunners are far from playing at 100%, but as long as bookmakers offer even odds on their victory, they are worth considering
Napoli and AS Roma Chase Place on the Podium
Napoli and AS Roma are no longer within striking distance of leading AC Milan, but the two teams seem to be heading into opposite directions. Napoli alternated victories with defeats and were recently beaten by AC Milan, which prompted them to lose the first place. They didn’t record a single draw in the last 19 matches and get odds of 11/10 to pick up all three points at home. Meanwhile, the team from the nation’s capital is undefeated in 10 games and 888 Sport prices them at 6/5 to win this match.
The odds mentioned here were accurate at the featured bookmakers at the hour the article was written, respectively on Tuesday, November 24 at 5 pm UK time.
