Last Chance for Barcelona and Lazio to Win the TitlePublished July 11, 2020 by Florin P
Barcelona tries to close the gap separating them from Real Madrid, while Lazio play their last chance to win the Serie A on Saturday.
The Italian and Spanish first divisions are slowly but surely approaching their inevitable conclusion. For the teams chasing the trophy, the remaining rounds are particularly important and some of the most exciting matches are scheduled on Saturday afternoon. Juventus are in prime position of winning the Serie A, while Lazio play their final chances. In Spain, Barcelona are no longer within striking distance of Real Madrid and are in dire need of points on the road.
Sassuolo Try to Ruin Lazio’s Title Run
Sassuolo are not concerned about the prospect of relegation, but they can still inflict a lot of harm to their opponents. Lazio is the team facing them at 4:15 PM UK time after losing the first match at home this season. Even so, they are credited with the first chance and the odds of 2/5 at bet365 Sports, while the visiting team gets odds of 6/1. The hosts are expected to come out firing on all cylinders, but they tend to consider a lot of goals, so this promises to be an exciting match.
Juventus can Consolidate Serie A Lead at Home
Juventus has home pitch advantage in the game played against Atalanta at 8:45 PM UK time. Even so, punters can expect massive odds of 1/1 at bet365 Sports, which is huge value for the leader and reigning champions. Even a point would see them consolidate the lead at the top of the tables, but the hosts will be aiming for outright victory. They face a motivated team with very little to lose, since Atalanta is almost certain of playing in the Champions League next year. At the time of writing, the visitors get odds of 3/1.
Barcelona Travels to Valladolid to End Their Streak
Barcelona can’t afford any fall steps in the match played on the road against Valladolid at 8:30 PM UK time. They will play in front of empty stands and have the better team, hence the odds of 7/20 offered by 888 Sport. The home side is resilient and has avoided defeat in many back-to-back games, so it is a force to be reckoned with. Odds of 7/1 are quite standing under these circumstances, although they’ve had little success in their past encounters with Barcelona.
Atletico Madrid Welcome Struggling Betis
Atletico Madrid play the last match of the day at 9 PM UK time, but the hosts are entitled to be optimistic about this fixture. They are in superb form and play against a struggling team, so punters are likely to cash in on the odds of 2/5 offered by 888 Sport. This is likely to be a low scoring match won by the hosts, but taking a leap of faith with the visitors will translate into odds of 7/1 at the same bookmaker.
