La Liga Challengers Hunt Valuable Points on the Road this SundayPublished November 24, 2019 by Florin P
Sevilla and Athletic Bilbao start with the first chance on Sunday road trips in must-win games in the race for and elusive La Liga podium.
Once again, Sunday football action belongs to La Liga as on this day, some of the most exciting matches take place in the Spanish first division. The teams involved are chasing a place on the podium and a Champions League berth, but are currently at the edge of the picture. In the English Premier League, Manchester United play in the only match of the day against surging Sheffield United.
Athletic Bilbao Seeks First Win on the Road
The Basques are the only team in the top half yet to win a match on the road and they hope to pick up the valuable points against Osasuna. This is going to be a difficult mission for Athletic Bilbao who scored the fewest games away from home, only two in six matches. So far, they were content with splitting points, as four out of six matches have resulted in draws. Osasuna are invincible at home, so the odds of 13/10 offered by bet365 Sports on them to win are justified. Meanwhile, the visitors are priced at 2/1.
Sevilla Try to spoil Rayo’s Record
Rayo Vallecano has a fantastic home record with two victories, three draws, no match lost and a 7-2 goal scoring performance. They are entitled to be optimistic ahead of this match against Sevilla, even though they compete against a vastly superior opponent. The visitors are narrow favorites with even odds, while the hosts are priced at 3/1 by 888 Sport. Rayo would be the happier team if the match results in a draw, as Sevilla would be in danger of losing its fourth place to Real Sociedad.
Depleted Manchester United travel to Sheffield
Manchester United have won a single match this season on the road and they are hoping for another win against the newly promoted team. Unfortunately for them, they are struggling with numerous injuries and play against a team that hasn’t lost a match in more than a month. Sheffield United lost by the narrowest of margins against Liverpool and will try to take advantage of the numerous absentees plaguing United. Winner Sports offers odds of 13/10 on Manchester and 12/5 on the hosts while offering 11/5 on a draw.
Marseille Play Heated Match in Toulouse
Olympic Marseille have closed the gap separating them from the leaders and currently sit in second place with 22 points. They need to win on the road against Toulouse the second to last team, but their mission isn’t easy. Toulouse played very well in front of their fans, while Marseille have picked up few points on the road and don’t have a particularly inspiring head to head record. Intertops Sports offers odds of 6/5 on the visitors and 12/5 on the home side, with a likely draw being priced at 5/2.
