Four Old School Derbies Electrify the Top European Football Leagues on SundayPublished November 8, 2020 by Florin P
European football fans are once again delighted by the prospect of watching four classic matches involving the top English, Spanish, Italian and Belgian teams.
A fantastic football weekend culminates with the Sunday derbies, as four European football leagues have scheduled exciting games. The hottest Italian, Spanish and English teams try to grab valuable points at the expense of their rivals and take an early lead in the race for the trophy.
Undefeated Juventus Travels to the Nation’s Capital
Juventus won’t have home pitch advantage in the first derby of the day, scheduled at noon in the Italian first division. With a squad at full strength, they are still favorites to defeat Lazio on the road, as reflected by the even odds offered by bet365 Sports. The hosts are enjoying an excellent run, with no defeats in more than a month and try to keep the streak alive. If they capture all three points available, punters who bet on this outcome will be paid at 5/2 by the same bookmaker.
Manchester City and Liverpool Play for the First Place
Liverpool and Manchester City are separated by five points, but the gap could shrink if the reigning champions are defeated on the road. They currently enjoy a five-game winning streak, with three of those victories being secured without conceding a goal. Even so, Liverpool has a few players missing for this fixture, so they are credited with the second chance and odds of 5/2. Punters who bet on Manchester City to improve the head to head record will be paid at even odds by bet365 Sports.
Gent and Anderlecht Reignite Old Rivalry
Gent and Anderlecht used to be some of the best Belgian football teams, but today they are both struggling just to return to the podium. Gent were finally able to win a game and after scoring four goals they are encouraged to chase another victory. Anderlecht are a struggling team, but they have the pedigree and experience to give any opponent a run for its money. This is an evenly matched fixture, with a slight edge for the host, which gets odds of 6/5 at 888 Sport compared to 2/1 on the visitors.
Valencia and Real Madrid Play Shineless Derby
Real Madrid and Valencia used to play some of the most exciting matches in the Spanish first division. Today there is a huge gap separating the two teams and Valencia is struggling in the second half of the tables. That’s why in spite of having well rested players and competing at home, they are the underdogs and get odds of 5/1. If Real Madrid wins the third consecutive game, punters who bet on their victory will cash in on odds of 1/2 at 888 Sport.
