European Giants are Overwhelming Favorites Away from Home on SundayPublished March 17, 2019 by Florin P
Reigning champions seek to lock in another title in Spain and Italy, while the Premier League race continues with Liverpool and Chelsea in the spotlight.
Sunday is another busy day for leading European football clubs, as they have to travel for highly contested matches on foreign stadiums. English clubs seem to have the easiest mission, while the Spanish and Italian ones prepare for much tougher opponents. This presents punters with the opportunity to bet at higher odds or to add multiple, somewhat safer matches, on the same betting slip.
Liverpool and Chelsea Travel to the Opposite Cities
Liverpool will be traveling to London for a match against Fulham, while Chelsea go to Liverpool to take on local team Everton. Both are favorites to win, although the degree and the odds differ greatly. Chelsea are given even odds to defeat Fulham, while Liverpool are priced at 3/10 with 888 Sport. In the FA Cup, Millwall welcome Brighton and not surprisingly, the Premier League team is slight favorite to prevail.
Sevilla and Barcelona Swap Cities on Sunday
Just like Liverpool and Chelsea, Sevilla and Barcelona will also travel to their rivals’ hometown for a match against the second local team. Sevilla play against Espanyol at 3:15 PM UK time in a match that looks like the perfect coin flip. Both teams get odds of 17/10 to win at bet365 Sports, while a draw also looks very likely and it benefits from odds of 5/2. Barcelona will play against Betis and even though they don’t have home pitch advantage, punters can only expect odds of 9/20 on them to win on the road.
Juventus Try to Wrap Up the Serie A
Juventus have played the most difficult match of the week on Tuesday and now prepare for what looks like a mere formality against Genoa. They will be traveling for the match scheduled just before noon on Sunday and we get odds of 3/5 at Winner Sports on them to return home with three points. Lazio, Napoli and Atalanta will all play at home and punters who bet on all of them will get combined odds of 11/10.
The most exciting match of the day in the Serie A is the evening fixture between AC Milan and Inter at 7:30 PM UK time. AC Milan play the role of host and that’s why they are slightly favorite at Intertops, with odds of 3/2, while the visitors get 2/1.
