Football Actions Starts Early this Weekend in Major European LeaguesPublished March 10, 2022 by Florin P
The weekend brings former European champions into the spotlight, as they play games they can’t afford to lose, in their quest for a Champions League berth.
This week was a roller coaster of excitement for football fans, with the Champions League and Europa League stealing the show. It is refreshing to see that the weekend starts on an equally promising note, with amazing games scheduled as early as Friday. For punters, this presents a unique opportunity to bet at 1xBet and bet365 sports on single games and accumulators and enjoy competitive odds.
Check out the Friday Accumulator at 1xBet
Three teams stand out from the crowd on Friday, for punters who seek an accumulator with even odds. Benfica has home pitch advantage against Vizela and the home side is expected to cruise to an easy victory. 1xBet only offers odds of 1/4, which accurately reflects the difference between the two teams. At the same time, Atletico Madrid welcomed Cadiz in a match they absolutely need to win to have a chance at the podium this season. They are priced at 3/10, in spite of having several players injured or suspended.
Ajax Amsterdam will play on the road against Cambuur, with several of its players missing due to yellow cards or injuries. Even so, the team is so much better it gets odds of 1/5 at 1xBet and punters consider backing them to cover the -1.5 spread. Risk-averse punters who love accumulators could add Benfica, Atletico Madrid, and Ajax Amsterdam on the same betting slip. By placing the bets early, they can enjoy nearly even odds, to double their first investment of the weekend.
Bet on the Spanish and English Derbies on Saturday
Manchester United failed miserably against their city rivals but have another opportunity to redeem themselves. They play against Tottenham on Saturday at 5:30 PM UK time in a match they are expected to win. They scored three goals in each of the last two victories over Tottenham and punters who back them to date will be paid at 11/10 by bet365 sports.
Villarreal takes on Celta Vigo at the same hour at the home side is the obvious favorite to pick up all three points. After suffering a shocking defeat on the road at Osasuna, they will come out firing on all cylinders and try to take an early lead. We expect Villarreal to win this match and like the odds of 7/10, while also expecting the home side to have more corner kicks in this fixture.
Arsenal and Barcelona Play must Win Games on Sunday
The time for improvisation and team building is done for Barcelona and Arsenal. The two teams trail the leaders by nearly 20 points and are in danger of missing the Champions League groups next season. Arsenal greets Leicester in a match where they start with the first chance and odds of 11/20. Both teams have won the last three games and plenty of goals were scored, so expect another high-scoring game.
Barcelona welcomes Osasuna at Nou Camp, a team they used to dominate regardless of venue. This is not the time to underestimate their opponents, who recently defeated Villarreal and held Barca to a high-scoring draw the last time the two teams met. The hosts are supposed to confirm the odds of 7/20 and punters should once again consider an accumulator bet with Barcelona and Arsenal for even odds.
The odds mentioned here were accurate at the featured bookmakers at the hour the article was written, respectively on Wednesday, March 9 at 5 A.M. UK time.
