Local and Old Rivalries are Reignited this Weekend in Top European LeaguesPublished November 21, 2021 by Florin P
Old rivalries are brought into the spotlight this weekend as some of the best European football teams lock horns on Saturday and Sunday.
The weekend is upon us and it brings some amazing games in the spotlight. Some of the top European football teams will compete in high profile matches that could ultimately determine the winners of national championships. You can bet on these highly anticipated matches at bet365 Sports and 1xBet.
Liverpool Try to Rebound in London Derby
Liverpool lost the first match in a long while, after failing on the road against West Ham. Now they have the opportunity to return to their winning ways against a team that enjoys a lengthy invincible run of its own. Arsenal hasn’t lost in 11 fixtures, but starts with the second chance and odds of 6/1 at bet365 Sports. If you bet on Liverpool to win, you will only enjoy odds of 1/2 and 6/5 to cover the -1.5 goals spread.
Lazio and Juventus Seek Redemption in Italian Derby
Juventus used to dominate the derbies against Lazio, but the Romans have leveled the playing field in recent years. This match is also painfully close, with a slight edge for Juventus in spite of them playing on the road. 1xBet expects the visitors to win, as reflected by the odds of 7/5, even though they have plenty of players missing. We like the odds of Lazio to win at 19/10 and the double chance wager 1X at 3/5.
Barcelona and Espanyol Reignite Local Rivalry
One of the most lopsided derbies in Europe, this match has always had Barcelona as a clear favorite. The same will happen on Saturday when they have home pitch advantage, but this time bookmakers offer the odds of 2/5. That’s because Espanyol is in decent form and won three of the last four games while losing just once. The odds of them winning at Nou Camp stand at 7/1 with 1xBet, while the draw is priced at 4/1
Lyon and Marseille Play the Southern Derby in France
Lyon and Marseille have always produced action-packed matches, with plenty of yellow cards when the stakes were high. This will be the case this weekend, when the two teams try to return to their winning ways a streak of inconclusive results. Lyon finishes few games undecided and is priced at 9/10, while Marseille is the team with the most draws and gets even odds at bet365 Sports to win or draw.
Inter and Napoli Aim to Extend Invincible Streak on Sunday
Napoli and Inter hope to win the Serie A this season and both are among the front runners. Napoli currently tops the standings and is one of the two undefeated teams this season, while Inter only accomplished this at home. The two teams have split points in head to head games and we strongly believe that a draw is very likely with exceptional odds of 24/10 at bet365 Sports.
