Football Fans are in for Treat This Weekend as Derbies are Scheduled Continent-WidePublished August 20, 2022 by Florin P
Highly anticipated derbies are scheduled in the Spanish, English, German, French, and Italian top divisions this weekend.
A fantastic weekend is upon us and football and tennis fans are in for a treat if they bet at 1xBet and bet365 sports. These bookies have already published the odds for the most anticipated matches in top European football leagues and you can wager on them live and pregame.
Manchester United and Liverpool Play a Lopsided Derby
Manchester United was the biggest train wreck last season in the Premier League and it started the new year equally disappointing. They have a home pitch advantage against Liverpool, but they are huge underdogs, as reflected by the odds of 9/2. The visitors managed to salvage a point at home in spite of conceding an early goal and a red card and should convert the odds of 7/10 on a victory on the road.
Porto takes on Sporting in the First Portuguese Derby
Porto and Sporting are the main favorites to win the trophy in the Portuguese first division this season. The fact that they square off so early means that the stakes are high and nobody can afford any false steps. Home pitch advantage gives Porto the upper hand and even odds, whereas the visitors are priced at 5/2 by bet365 sports to pick up all three points.
Real Madrid Seeks a Convincing Performance on the Road
Real Madrid was largely disappointing in the away game played against Almeria but got away with a victory. They will need to improve their performance against Celta Vigo as they once again play on the road. Odds of 7/10 are temptingly enough under the circumstances, given their head-to-head record and superior team quality.
Lille vs PSG – A Clash Between Recent Ligue 1 Champions
Lille and PSG won the last two championships in the French first division and they have the opportunity to add another trophy. Home field advantage is unlikely to make a difference, with 1xBet regarding them as huge underdogs, with odds of 5/1. Don’t expect values above 1/2 if you bet on the reigning champions to prevail, as they started the season firing on all cylinders and are in superb form.
Atalanta and AC Milan Square Off in a Regional Derby
Atalanta and AC Milan are local rivals and this is going to show in the match scheduled for Sunday evening. 1xBet offers identical odds of 17/10 on each team to prevail, but we also consider the draw to be a likely outcome at 2/1. Expect many yellow cards and potentially players sent off in this fixture, as both teams will come out firing on all cylinders and will not settle for a single point.
Leverkusen and Hoffenheim Must Fix Defensive Issues
Three consecutive defeats are too much for Leverkusen fans to accept and they are in desperate need of victory over Hoffenheim. These are teams that have conceded plenty of early goals and need to improve their backline if they are to qualify for the Champions League. 1xBet offers odds of 7/10 on the hosts and 7/2 on the visitors, but will likely be over 2.5 goals to be scored market.
