Italian and Scottish Teams Make Final Push for European LeaguesPublished May 19, 2019 by Florin P
The last chapter of the Spanish La Liga and the Scottish Premier League closes on Sunday afternoon, with past and reigning champions on the deck.
Only two rounds are left to play in the Italian first division, but five teams are still in the race for the Champions League. Kilmarnock and Aberdeen are chasing a presence in Europa League, but for them, this is the final hurdle, as the Scottish Premier League concludes this Sunday. Elsewhere, Barcelona and Real Madrid play two matches they are expected to win, even though the result matters only for statistics.
Milanese Teams in the Spotlight for the Champions League
AC Milan have home pitch advantage against Frosinone who have already relegated, so the tiny odds of 3/20 are hardly a surprise. Meanwhile, Inter Milan have a much more difficult task on the road against Napoli, but they could settle for a draw. 888 Sport offers identical odds of 17/10 on the two teams to win, while the match ending undecided is priced at 3/2. Atalanta has an even more difficult mission away from home, as they travel to Turin to play against the reigning and current champions. Even though Juventus have nothing to fight for, the hosts are favorites with odds of 3/2, while the visitors get 2/1.
Barcelona and Real Madrid play the Last La Liga Matches
Barcelona will be traveling to Eibar for the final match of the season and the team is expected to bring its best players, even in the absence of actual stakes. Odds of 19/20 offered by Intertops Sportsbook are quite tempting under these conditions, especially with the hosts also lacking motivation. Real Madrid are sure to finish the season in the third place, but the fans are far from happy. The least they can do is to deliver a final win on Sunday at noon when Betis comes visiting and the odds currently stand at 7/10.
Kilmarnock and Aberdeen Aim for a Europa League Berth
Kilmarnock have valiantly defended their third place from Aberdeen, which would send them to the Europa League qualifiers. They are, however, in a difficult spot as they welcome Rangers on Sunday at 3 PM UK time in a match they must win. The odds on a home victory are spectacular at bet365 Sports, as the bookmaker offers values of 31/10. Aberdeen play on the road against Hibernian who are already out of the race, but have a solid home pitch advantage. The odds on the visitors to win revolve around 13/10 and punters should also consider a bet on a low number of goals being scored.
