Chelsea and Bayern play key derbies on the road, trying to defend first place in Premier League and Bundesliga, while Napoli welcomes Atalanta for Serie A top spot
December started on a positive note for football fans from all over Europe. That’s because the strongest national competitions had matches scheduled from Monday to Sunday. One day of the week stands out from the crowd and if you are in the market for betting on derbies, Saturday promises to be amazing.
West Ham and Chelsea Play the New London Derby
Chelsea won the Champions League last season and continued its amazing run with a fantastic start in the Premier League. The Londoners sit in the first place and need victory over West Ham to consolidate their position. Playing on the road isn’t a major concern, even though they have a few players injured or suspended. 1xBet offers odds of 3/4 on the visitors and 4/1 on the home side.
Sevilla and Villarreal Meet after Copa Del Rey Wins
Sevilla and Villarreal meet early in the afternoon after both recording victories in the domestic cup. Home pitch advantage has always been huge in head-to-head matches between these two teams. That’s why Sevilla is credited with the first chance and even odds by bet365 Sports, while Villarreal gets 3/1. If you fancy special markets, consider betting on the high number of corners being executed in this match.
Depleted Dortmund Face Leading Bayern for First Spot
Dortmund is out of the Champions League but on the domestic front, they closed the gap separating them from the leaders. The team is now one point behind Bayern Munich and could overtake them if they win the direct match at home. A long list of injured players, as well as a string of six consecutive defeats against the reigning champions, explains the odds of 4/1. The visitors are priced at 3/4 by bet365 Sports.
AS Roma Welcomes Invincible Inter at Stadio Olimpico
AS Roma saw the winning streak ending abruptly against Bologna and hope to rebound on Saturday. Inter Milan come visiting hoping to close the gap separating them from leading Napoli. Their performance on the road is pretty good and that’s why 1xBet credits them with the first chance and even odds. Betting on the home team to return to its winning ways will produce odds of 3/1 which are incredibly tempting.
Napoli and Atalanta Put Stellar Record on the Line
Napoli and Atalanta are separated by five points yet the gap could shrink significantly if the visitors win on the road. Atalanta has the best record in games played away from home, with 6 victories, one draw, and 15 goals in 7 matches. Napoli boasts an identical record in home games, so something’s got to give when the two teams meet on Saturday. 1xBet prices a home win at 13/10 and a visitors’ victory at 2/1.
