Old and New Rivalries Electrify European Football Leagues on SundayPublished September 22, 2019 by Florin P
The new leaders and challengers of La Liga, Ligue 1, Premier League and Eredivisie count on good form to outshine the reigning champions.
Once again, the football week has saved the best for last and the most anticipated games are scheduled for Sunday afternoon and evening. The stakes are high in the top European championships, where the current leaders and the reigning champions are locked in an even race that is nearly too close to call. Liverpool, Chelsea, Lyon, PSG, Real Madrid and other top football clubs play today for highly valuable points.
Chelsea Try to Stop Liverpool in Their Tracks
Liverpool are the only undefeated team in the Premier League and the only one to win all five matches played so far. In order to keep this winning streak alive, they have to beat Chelsea on the road, just one week after the electrifying win over Wolverhampton. The Blues will play at home and don’t have any players injured, yet they still get massive values of 13/5 at 888 Sport. We only get even odds for Liverpool to win on the road, just a few days after losing in the Champions League against Napoli.
Lyon Braces for Classic Derby against PSG
PSG are back at the top of Ligue 1 after a lucky overtime victory last weekend. They travel to Lyon, trying to improve their performance on the road, while continuing the good streak against one of their main rivals. They start with the first chance and odds the 9/10 at Winner Sports, but they will play against a team at full strength and highly motivated to win. Lyon could come at one point behind the leaders if they win at 8 PM UK time and punters who bet on their success will be paid at 27/10.
PSV and Ajax Fight for Solitary Lead in Eredivisie
Ajax and PSV continue their race for the Eredivisie trophy after the former have prevailed last season and enjoyed an excellent run in the Champions League. The superior form and the better results recorded last season explain why Ajax are favorites at bet365 Sports, with odds of 13/10. PSV are a force to be reckoned with, especially when they play in front of their fans and odds of 2/1 are simply too good to turn down. Because of the high stakes of this match, a draw is also worth considering at odds of 3/1.
Sevilla Defends First Place in La Liga against Real Madrid
Sevilla are still at the top of La Liga after winning three out of four matches, but the most difficult one is yet to come. On Sunday evening, in the last game of the day, they welcome Real Madrid in a match where they only start with the second chance. Sevilla have always struggled against the team from the nation’s capital, hence the odds of 3/1 on the hosts and only 13/10 for the visitors at Intertops Sportsbook.
