No Room for Error for the Top Football Clubs in European Leagues this SaturdayPublished November 30, 2019 by Florin P
Premier League, Bundesliga and La Liga teams continue their duel from a distance with matches they are compelled to win.
The race is heating up in all the important European football leagues and the main protagonists are struggling to keep up with the torrid pace. On Saturday, there are interesting matches scheduled in all the important championships, with the leaders and runners-up playing against tough opponents. While they don’t lock horns with direct rivals, they can’t afford any false steps in these potentially decisive matches.
Manchester City and Liverpool are set for Success
Manchester City and Liverpool are the main favorites to win the Premier League, even though Leicester are currently in second place. Liverpool have a commanding lead over the reigning champions and they should be able to extend it with a victory over Brighton at home. Manchester City don’t have home pitch advantage, but even though they travel to Newcastle United, they are likely to pick up all three points. In both cases, bet365 Sports offer odds of 1/5 on the favorites and 12/1 on the underdogs. Both Brighton the Newcastle will try to split points in these fixtures and those considering the draw will get odds of 6/1.
Bayern and Dortmund Challenge the Bundesliga Leader
M’Gladbach are finally showing signs of weakness and the reigning champions are ready to challenge their lead on Saturday. Bayern plays at home against a long-time rival and everything points towards a victory over Leverkusen. Even though both teams play in the Champions League, the hosts are clearly the better football club, hence the odds of 3/10 at 888 Sport. Elsewhere, Dortmund travel to the nation’s capital for a match against Hertha Berlin and they are only slight favorites to prevail. The team has struggled on the road, so the odds of 4/5 on them to win seem to be fully justified.
Real Madrid Prepare for Tough Away Game
Real Madrid and Barcelona are tied for the lead with only goal difference separating the Spanish giants. After the disappointing second half against PSG, Real Madrid hope for a better outcome on Saturday at noon when they travel to Alaves. Home pitch advantage has been huge for Deportivo the season and they won 4 out of 7 matches while losing just once. It’s important to highlight the fact that Alaves has conceded the fewest goals at home, with only two allowed in seven games. Under these circumstances, odds of 1/2 on Real Madrid offered by Winner Sports are rather small; punters should consider a bet on the hosts to cover the -1.5 goals spread at odds of 3/5 at the same bookmaker.
