Portuguese, German and Spanish Cup Winners to Be Decided on SaturdayPublished May 25, 2019 by Florin P
Bayern Munich and Barcelona seek their second trophy on Saturday, while Porto and Sporting Lisbon chase their first in cup finals.
The domestic championships have ended in Spain, Germany and Portugal, but the cup winners will be decided on Saturday. Some teams have the chance to add the second trophy to their case this weekend, while others seek redemption after a disappointing season. There are also two matches scheduled in the Italian Serie A, but they involve teams that have nothing to fight for in the final round.
Bayern Munich Face Leipzig in Berlin
Bayern Munich have won the Bundesliga in the last round and are clear favorites to defeat Leipzig in the DFB Final. Because the match is played in Berlin, the odds on the reigning champions to win the trophy in regulation time currently stand at 11/20. 888 Sport offers even higher odds of 5/1 on Leipzig to cause an upset and even the odds on the underdogs to prevail at the end of overtime are quite tempting.
Barcelona goes for the Second Trophy
At 8 PM UK time, Barcelona and Valencia travel to Sevilla for the Copa del Rey final that the Catalans are expected to claim. Punters can bet on them to win at the end of 90 minutes and enjoy odds of 11/20, courtesy of bet365 Sports. Valencia have enjoyed an excellent second half of the season and they could wrap it up with a victory in the cup final. The odds on their success are quite high at 5/1.
Sporting and Porto Try to Salvage Poor Season
Finishing second, respectively third in the Portuguese first division is not regarded as a satisfying result for either Sporting and Porto. They can still make amends by winning the Taca de Portugal, in a final that appears to be highly contested. Porto are given even odds by Intertops Sportsbook, while their archrivals are priced at 3/1. Both these odds are offered on the two teams to claim victory at the end of 90 minutes.
For Italian Teams Play their Final Serie A Matches
The Italian top-flight concludes on Sunday afternoon, but two matches are scheduled for Saturday evening. Frosinone welcome Chievo in a match that only matters for statistics, since both teams are already relegated. Winner Sports offers identical odds of 8/5 on them to win, but the value of 27/10 for a draw is far more appealing. Napoli are expected to win on the road against Bologna, at odds of 9/10, but both of these are complacent teams with very little to fight for except for pride.
