Bayern Munich Welcomes Dortmund in Bundesliga Classic
Bayern has won the Bundesliga, despite the fact that there are still several rounds to be played. Some of its players apparently took the foot off gas in the last match against Leipzig that the reigning champions lost on the road. On Saturday, they play at home against archrivals Dortmund and this time, they are expected to give their very best. The odds offered by 10bet Sportsbook are not particularly high at ½, but they accurately reflect the difference of value between the two teams.
Elsewhere, Leipzig place on the road against Hanover, in a match they must win if they are to keep their Champions League hopes alive. Schalke and Leverkusen will try to do the same in their home games against Freiburg and Augsburg, both priced at odds of 11/20. Frankfurt is the pleasant surprise of the season and it temporary occupies the fourth place, ahead of their match against Werder on Sunday.
Chelsea Plays Tottenham in the Derby of London
This weekend most of the Premier League matches are scheduled for Saturday, but the most exciting one is the clash between Chelsea and Tottenham on Sunday. The Blues are trying to close the gap separating them from the Spurs, who currently sit in the fourth place, the last one eligible for a Champions League berth. Chelsea is narrow favorite with 888 Sport at odds of 11/10, compared to 17/10 for Tottenham.
Barcelona Blocks Sevilla’s Path to Europa League
Barcelona has virtually won the championship after defeating the runners-up Atletico Madrid. They can now strengthen their position and in the process make it more difficult for Sevilla to consolidate its sixth place. The multiple Europa League winners will have home pitch advantage in the last match played on Saturday against Barcelona. 10bet Sportsbook offer spectacular odds of 4/1 on the hosts to win, while the visitors are credited with the first chance and odds of 7/10.
Real Madrid also plays on the road against the relegation threatened Las Palmas and they are clear favorites to prevail. Punters can only expect odds of 3/10 at 888 Sport, identical to the odds offered on Atletico Madrid to defeat La Coruna at home. Valencia plays a difficult match on the road against Leganes, a team that is hard to beat in front of its fans, hence the odds of 11/10.
AC Milan Tries to Thwart Juventus' Title Run
All the matches played in the Italian first division are scheduled for Saturday and the most exciting of them all wraps up this round. Juventus plays at home against AC Milan in a match they need to win, in order to keep a gap between them and Napoli. 10bet Sportsbook credits them with the first chance to succeed and odds of 13/20, while the visitors enjoy odds of 5/1. Juventus has a clear advantage in the head to head fixtures, so it would come as no surprise if the hosts claim all three points.
Napoli has a much easier task on the road against Sassuolo, hence the odds of 3/10 offered by 888 Sport on them to succeed. Lazio and Inter Milan are chasing the fourth place, the last eligible for a Champions League berth. Both teams play at home against struggling opponents and are expected to prevail with relative ease. AS Roma sits in the third-place, but will have a harder task protecting its position, as it travels to Bologna you for a difficult fixture.
