Football Fans Brace for Huge Saturday in European Top LeaguesPublished February 25, 2022 by Florin P
Recent champions and current leaders play key matches on the road in the strongest European football leagues this weekend.
A busy week has just ended for football fans, with Champions League and Europa League matches galore. The weekend promises to be just as exciting, as the best teams on the old continent are back in the spotlight. Past and current champions play on the road and hope to consolidate their position at the top of the leaderboard. They will be put to the test by stringy opponents that are ready to defend for 90 minutes to salvage at least one point against a superior team.
Bayern Seek First Back-to-Back Victories in a Month
Bayern Munich is still at the top of the tables in the German Bundesliga but has struggled in recent weeks. They have an excellent opportunity to start a new winning streak, by triumphing in back-to-back games for the first time this February. They play on the road against Frankfurt which is struggling regardless of venue, hence the odds of 9/20 for the visitors. The odds of 5/1 on Frankfurt to prevail are tempting, but we don’t think they are capable of causing an upset.
Manchester City to Return to Winning Ways
Manchester City’s advantage over Liverpool is shrinking and the team needs to defeat Everton on the road. They have no players injured or suspended ahead of this fixture, so they are overwhelming favorites. Bet365 Sports offers odds of 3/10 on them to prevail, while the home side is valued at 10/1. We expect the visitors who come out firing on all cylinders and take the lead before halftime.
Manchester United Should Extend Invincible Run
Home pitch advantage against Watford is enough to give Manchester United a clear favorite status. Punters only get odds of 7/20 at Bet365 Sports, but they accurately reflect the difference between the two teams. What first won a single game in the last four, while the Red Devils are undefeated in the last eight fixtures. The biggest danger for the home side is another draw but we trust them to pick up three points.
“10” is the Key Number in Empoli vs Juventus Match
Juventus hasn’t lost a match in the last 10 rounds, while Empoli was unable to win in just as many fixtures. They also have a propensity of picking up yellow and red cards, so they sometimes find themselves playing in 10. Juventus doesn’t have a home pitch advantage, but has all the other perks and is the better overall team. Fatigue could be a problem, but you still expect them to win at odds of 13/20.
Celta’s Invincibility to be Tested by Atletico Madrid
Atletico has a hard time keeping clean sheets regardless of opponent and this could be a big problem against Celta. They also suffer from fatigue after facing Manchester United in the Champions League on Wednesday this explains why 1xBet offers odds of 13/10 on the recent champions despite them playing at home. It is very dangerous to bet on the visitors to cause an upset, but the odds of 5/1 are quite big.
