Those who live in Liverpool and Milan are in for a treat, but exciting games will also take place in Napoli and Manchester.
Everton and Liverpool Play the Merseyside Derby
Everton and Liverpool share a long rivalry, but the reigning champions were the ones that usually came on top in head to head matches. They are once again favorites and benefit from odds of 3/4 at bet365 Sports, but they are not in the best form. On the other hand, Everton are firing on all cylinders and can field a competitive starting formation for this fixture. Undefeated this season with four victories in as many matches, they benefit from odds of 3/1, which are surprisingly high.
Arsenal Try to Cash in on Manchester City’s Struggles
Manchester City are struggling to return to form and they need to do it quickly to pick up all three points against Arsenal. The Londoners travels to Manchester aware of the fact that playing offensive football against this opponent can backfire badly. 888 Sport offers odds of 2/5 on the home team to prevail, while those who bet on an upset for Arsenal will be paid at 11/2 if the Londoners push through.
AC Milan and Inter Milan Lock Horns in Classic Match
A match between AC Milan and Inter is always exciting regardless of how the two teams sit in the standings. This match is no exception and with both teams in excellent form, the odds are also closer than they usually are. Inter Milan lost a single match in the last 10 games and are priced at 2/1 to emerge victorious against their bitter rivals. AC Milan is in even better form, as they are undefeated in the last 20 matches, so they are slight favorites with odds of 13/10.
Undefeated Napoli and Atalanta Face Each Other
Napoli and Atalantaplay offensive football regardless of venue and they’re expected to come out firing on all cylinders in this Serie A derby. The match will be played in southern Italy, but there will be no spectators cheering for Napoli from the stands. This explains why the odds offered by bet365 Sports on the two teams to prevail are identical and currently sit at 3/2. A single draw was recorded in the last 10 head to head matches and this particular game is unlikely to finish undecided either.
