The European football weekend ends with a bang, as highly anticipated derbies are scheduled for Sunday night at freezing temperatures.
The teams qualified for the Champions League and Europa League were determined midweek. Until European action returns in spring, players can bet on the strongest championships on the old continent. Some really exciting matches are scheduled for Sunday evening in France, Spain, Belgium and Portugal.
Madrid Turns into a Volcano when Real Welcomes Atletico
The most anticipated match of the weekend is also among the last scheduled, as it begins at 8 PM UK time. Real Madrid welcomes city rivals Atletico Madrid after both teams have secured passage from the Champions League groups. The hosts are the current leaders of La Liga and can extend their lead with a home win. bet365 Sports credits them with the first chance and even odds after winning nine consecutive matches. Atletico Madrid are not to be underestimated and odds of 3/1 on the visitors to win are tempting.
PSG Aims to End Monaco’s Invincibility in Ligue 1
PSG used to dominate Monaco but the Monegasques have leveled the playing field in recent years. Now they try to pick up valuable points on the road and climb on the third place on the podium. The visitors haven’t lost in the last seven matches and if they pick up all three points, punters who back them will be paid at 11/2. Home pitch advantage, the absence of injured players and an overall better squad quality explain the odds of 9/20 offered by 1xBet on PSG to win.
In-Form Gent Takes on Reeling Rivals Genk
Non-Belgian players are prone to make confusions when betting on Gent and Genk. Fans of the two teams on the other hand are fiercely partisan and this match is the most anticipated of the year. Gent seem to have all the advantages, as they play at home and won the last three matches. This explains the even odds offered by bet365 Sports on the home side to prevail, as opposed to 3/1 on the visitors. In recent years, home pitch advantage didn’t mean much and visitors prevailed in three out of five games.
Braga Braces for 90 Minute Siege at Leading Porto
Porto lost the championship last year but they are well-positioned to triumph in the Primeira Liga this year. To maintain their slight advantage over Sporting, they need to capitalize on the odds of 1/2 and defeat Braga. This has emerged as the toughest opponent in recent years, as Porto only managed to defeat them in one of the last seven matches. 1xBet offers a spectacular value of 5/1 on the visitors, so those who trust Braga to cause another upset can take advantage of these amazing odds.
