European Reigning Champions Return Home for Saturday Afternoon MatchesPublished December 21, 2019 by Florin P
Saturday looks like a promising day for the best European teams who play at home against weak or struggling opponents.
Bayern Munich and Manchester City try to stop the bleeding of points and keep their faint dreams alive this Saturday. The current leaders also have home pitch advantage and are expected to win by a comfortable margin against teams threatened by relegation.
Manchester City Take on Red Hot Leicester
Manchester City have all but lost the chance to defend their title after allowing Liverpool to put what looks like an insurmountable distance between them. Now they try to simply stay afloat and reclaim the second place that is currently occupied by Leicester. The two teams meet at 5:30 P.M UK time and Manchester City are clear favourites in spite of their recent mishaps. 888 Sport offers odds of 2/5 on the home team, while the visitors are priced at 6/1 to record another shocking victory on the road.
Bayern and Leipzig are Huge Favorites at Home
Bayern Munich are just four points behind M’Gladbach after the leaders failed to consolidate their position at the top of the Bundesliga. Time is still on their side and they should be able to stay within striking distance by defeating Wolfsburg. The odds on the hosts stand at 3/20 with bet365 Sports, while in the derby of East Germany, Leipzig are expected to steamroll past Augsburg. Punters who back the hosts can only expect odds of 2/5, while those taking a leap of faith with the underdogs are paid at 9/1.
No Room for Error in Inter Milan’s Match against Genoa
The inevitable has finally happened and Inter Milan failed to win its eight match on the road after conceding an overtime equalizer against Fiorentina. They should fare much better at home this evening when they welcome Genoa, one of the worst traveling teams in the Serie A. The visitors are priced at 8/1 to cause an upset, while risk-averse punters will be paid at 2/5 if Inter Milan Wins. This is the second match of the day and it is scheduled for 5:00 P.M UK
Barcelona and Sevilla Open Round 18 of La Liga
Sevilla play in the opening match of the Spanish first division, as they travel to Mallorca to claim yet another win on the road. They did better than expected away from home this season and should be able to pick up all three points against the newly promoted team. Winner Sports offers odds of 4/5 on the visitors while giving low chances and high odds of 4/1 to the hosts. Barcelona have a much easier task at home against Alaves, who are in a downward spiral and on the verge of slipping below the relegation line.
