Favorites Enjoy Home Pitch Advantage in Sunday Evening MatchesPublished November 22, 2020 by Florin P
The top teams in the Italian Serie A play at home but won’t enjoy the support of the fans, with the games played on empty stadiums.
The top European football teams will try to maximize the advantage of playing at home to pick up valuable points. They will take on tough opponents who have won the vast majority of the games played recently, so their mission is anything but simple. This provides punters with excellent betting opportunities at top bookmakers such as bet365 Sports and 888 Sport.
Liverpool Likely to End Leicester’s Winning Run
Liverpool and Leicester are separated by a single point in the standings, with the visitors having a slight advantage. That’s the result of them winning six consecutive games and they entitled to be optimistic ahead of this fixture. Leicester have a flawless record on the road with four victories in as many games, but still get high odds of 9/5 at bet365 Sports. That’s because they play against the reigning champions and the team that has won the Champions League, which is priced at 9/10 in this encounter.
As Roma’s Streak Expected to Grow after Parma Visit
As Roma didn’t lose a match in the last nine games and there’s no reason for concern ahead of this fixture. Parma is a team struggling to pick up points on the road when playing against weaker opponents and are unlikely to cause an upset. However, if this happens, those who bet on an away victory will be paid at 5/1, while bet365 Sports only offers 1/2 on the hosts. Parma is more likely to aim for a draw, which would extend their undefeated streak to five consecutive matches.
Inter Milan is Poised to End Torino’s Recovery
Inter Milan won just two games on the road in the last two months and one friendly match at home against Monza. They are hard-pressed to return to their winning ways quickly and the match against Torino looks like the perfect opportunity. The home side is priced at 7/20 by 888 Sport, now that its best footballers are once again fit to play. Torino finally look capable of winning matches after a terrible season start, but odds of 6/1 indicate their weak chances in this particular fixture.
Napoli and AC Milan Play for the First Place
Napoli and AC Milan are well-positioned to claim temporary leadership of the Italian first division. AC Milan are undefeated this season and justly occupy the first place but they will have a hard difficult winning this match on the road. Napoli played decisively in all the seven games so far, winning five of them and finishing two games undecided. This bodes well ahead of this match in which they are slight favorites and get odds of 11/10 especially with no players injured or suspended.
