Hoffenheim and Leipzig play key match in the German Bundesliga on Friday, with AC Milan and Juventus facing in the semifinals.
It’s been a while since European football fans have had the chance to watch and bet on the most important football leagues. The Spanish first division resumes on Friday, while the Italian Cup has scheduled the second leg of the semifinals on the same day. Meanwhile, the top German flight continues unabated with a key match between Leipzig and Hoffenheim
Leipzig Meets Struggling Hoffenheim on the Road
Leipzig has failed miserably in the last home match and as a result, it is virtually out of the race for the trophy. They can still finish on the podium and stay within striking distance of the leading duo, if they manage to defeat Hoffenheim on the road. Having to play without worrying about a raucous crowd should help their cause, but they underperformed last weekend at home. This time, Leipzig is priced at 9/20 by bet365 Sports, while a bet on the home side will result in odds of 5/1.
The Coppa Italia Semifinal is Played without Spectators
Coppa Italia provides football fans with the first opportunity to enjoy the thrills of Italian football. The competition resume in the second leg of the semi finals, after Juventus and AC Milan have finished the first leg undecided. Juventus have home pitch advantage but this will mean nothing as the match will be played without spectators. Even so, the Italian champions are regarded as the favorites by bet365 Sports, with odds of 1/2. Meanwhile, a wager on AC Milan to prevail will result in odds of 5/1.
Valencia and Levante meet in Local Derby
Valencia and Levante are separated by nine points and they have very different objectives for the remainder of the season. Valencia hopes to return to a place that would make them eligible for a Champions League berth. Meanwhile, Levante are simply trying to avoid relegation and would gladly settle for a point in this match. Since the match will be played without spectators, punters willing to bet on Valencia will enjoy odds of 3/4 at 888 Sport as opposed to 3/1 on Levante.
Granada Welcomes Getafe with no Support from the Fans
Granada and Getafe play in the first match of the day, scheduled for 6:30 PM UK time. The visitors are tied for the fourth place with Real Sociedad and just one point behind Sevilla. This makes the outcome of this game particularly important and they will try to pick up all three points against the lowly Granada. The hosts used to be a force to be reckoned with when they play in front of a packed stadium, but they will have to do without their support. 888 Sport regards the visitors as narrow favorites with odds of 3/2.
