Football Fans are in for a Treat with a Flurry of Matches Scheduled for SundayPublished October 25, 2020 by Florin P
Arsenal, Lyon and Juventus try to capitalize on home pitch advantage to secure valuable points against their counter candidates for a European league berth.
One day after the football derbies that have electrified Europe, the top European championships return with even more matches. There are dozens of games scheduled on Sunday, but the most exciting ones will involve English, French, Italian and Spanish teams.
Arsenal and Leicester Try to Bounce Back after Defeats
Arsenal and Leicester were defeated last weekend by the odd goal, but they have an opportunity to redeem themselves on Sunday. Home pitch advantage meant a great deal for Arsenal who won both games in London and they hope to extend the winning streak in the match scheduled for 7 PM UK time. The hosts are credited with the first chance and odds of 9/10 by bet365 Sports, while a victory for the visitors is priced at 2/1 by the same bookmaker.
The Draw is Unlikely when Lyon meets Monaco
Lyon and Monaco have faced each other many times over but in recent years one team or the other emergef victorious. With no draw recorded in the last nine matches, it is reasonable to expect that they won’t settle for a point on Sunday night either. The match is scheduled to start at 8 PM and after winning the first game in weeks, Lyon are favorites with odds of 3/5. Betting on Monaco to return to their winning ways will result in bigger payouts, as bet365 Sports offers odds of 4/1 on the visiting team.
Defensive Specialists Verona visit Juventus
Surprising as it might sound, Verona is currently the best defensive team in the Italian first division. With a single goal allowed so far, they sit in the seventh place and have room for improvement. The biggest problem ahead of this match is that they are also one of the worst scoring teams in the Serie A with four goals to their names. Juventus are the obvious favorites at 888 Sport, but the pleasant surprise is that punters benefit from odds of 9/20 on them to win, while Verona are priced at 11/2.
Huesca Hope for another La Liga Draw against Real Sociedad
Huesca have emerged as the draw specialists in the Spanish first division with five undecided matches in six encounters. They are also one of the two teams yet to win a match, which doesn’t bode well ahead of this fixture against Real Sociedad. Playing on the road against the leader and the most prolific offensive team in the championship has resulted in odds of 11/2 on Huesca. By comparison, punters willing to bet on the favorites can only expect odds of 1/2 on them to prevail and consolidate their lead.
The odds mentioned here were accurate at the featured bookmakers at the hour the article was written, respectively on Tuesday, October 20 at 7 pm UK time.
