German and Spanish Derbies to Keeps Football Fans Wired on SaturdayPublished February 1, 2020 by Florin P
The best Premier League teams welcome subpar opponents, while the Spanish La Liga and the German Bundesliga supply the derbies on Saturday.
There’s plenty of action for football fans on Saturday, as all the important European football leagues have matches scheduled. Most of them are played in the English Premier League, but these are other lopsided games with clear favorites. The Spanish and German top divisions have scheduled some high-profile derbies, some of them having the potential of shaping the final hierarchy.
Real Madrid take on City Rivals in Heated La Liga Derby
Real Madrid are back in the driver’s seat after they took advantage of Barcelona’s struggles against Valencia. Now, they need to confirm their quality against their bitter rivals from the nation’s capital, as they welcome Atletico Madrid. Home pitch advantage and superior form explain the preference given by bet365 Sports to the multiple Champions League winners. They have a few injury concerns ahead of this fixture, but they are still priced at 9/10, while the visitors get odds of 7/2. Atletico drew a surprisingly high number of matches this season and on this particular occasion, they would gladly take the draw.
Leipzig and M’gladback Play for the First Place in the Bundesliga
Leipzig and M’gladback are both well-positioned to end Bayern’s dominance in the German first division. The fact that they play each other on Saturday should provide the reigning champions with the opportunity to break free once again. The draw is not an option in this fixture, one that has Leipzig as a clear favorite, mostly because of home pitch advantage. Odds of 3/5 at 888 Sport are not exactly irresistible since M’gladback is a strong traveling team with few draws recorded on the road. Punters willing to take a leap of faith with the visitors enjoy odds of 9/2, while an elusive draw gets odds of 7/2.
Easy Schedule for Top Premier League Teams on Saturday
Liverpool are aiming for another victory in front of their fans, as they take on Southampton at Anfield. Manchester United are also optimistic ahead of this fixture, after greatly improving their performance against Tranmere and Manchester City. Under normal circumstances, a match against Wolverhampton should have the Red Devils as clear favorites. As it is, 10bet Sportsbook offers odds of 6/5 on a home win, with surprisingly low odds of 5/2 on Wolverhampton. A far more balanced match is the one between Leicester and Chelsea, where each team enjoys odds of 17/10, while the draw is priced at 27/10.
