European Football Leagues Schedule a Flurry of Derbies this SundayPublished February 21, 2021 by Florin P
AC Milan and Inter meet in a Serie A classic, while Manchester City seeks another victory over Arsenal in a bid to secure the trophy.
Sunday is once again the highlight of the week for European football fans. After a pretty exciting start of the weekend, the most important matches are scheduled for this day. The English Premier League, the French Ligue 1 and the Italian Serie A have scheduled their finest teams to play on this day. The leaders of these strong European championships try to extend their lead over ambitious runners-up.
Manchester City Guns for 17th Straight Win
Manchester City is simply invincible in all competitions and is expected to win the 17th game in a row. Playing on the road against Arsenal isn’t exactly a big challenge for the current leaders, as they defeated his opponent many times over. They have no missing or suspended players and compete just as well away from home as in Manchester. Given their incredible run and superb form, odds of 9/20 offered by bet365 Sports makes perfect sense. Bold punters will be paid at 6/1 if they bet on Arsenal to win and are correct.
PSG Ready to Crush Monaco’s Dreams
PSG are still trailing Lille in the French first division but could leapfrog the leaders with a victory over Monaco. This is a difficult opponent to face right now, and the Monegasques are undefeated in the last 11 games. Having said this, they’ve shown signs of fatigue and conceded the first goal in most of the recent matches. 888 Sport offers odds of 3/5 on PSG to win at home, which is the highest value offered on the reigning champions the season. Monaco are priced at 4/1 to pick up a rare victory at Parc de Princes.
Milano Comes to Life when Inter Meets AC Milan
The most exciting match of the week is scheduled for Sunday afternoon at 2 PM UK time. Inter Milan and AC Milan lock horns in a match that will determine the current leader of the Italian first division. AC Milan were in pole position for most of the season but were recently overtaken by their city rivals. They can return the favor with a win, but with three defeats in the last five matches their chances don’t look too good. 888 Sport offers odds of 13/5 on the hosts and 1/1 on the visitors, with the draw priced at 5/2.
Atalanta and Napoli Fight for the Podium
Atalanta and Napoli are tied for the 5th place with 40 points and need to pick up points to secure a Champions League berth. The two teams are at the opposite end of form, with Napoli recently defeating Juventus, while Atalanta struggle to win consecutive matches. Home pitch advantage and a slight edge in the head to head record have the hosts as favorites with odds of 9/20. There’s a lot of value in the odds of 14/5 offered by bet365 Sports on the visitors to pick up all three points after defeating Juventus.
