Premier League and Ligue 1 Leaders Play on the Road on SundayPublished April 14, 2019 by Florin P
Manchester City and PSG expect easy wins away from home, while Liverpool play a key match against Chelsea in the race for the Premier League trophy.
The French first division is pretty much won by PSG this season, as the reigning champions have a commanding lead. They will play on the road in the last match of this round against second-place Lille and a victory would mathematically grant them the title. Things are far more complicated and interesting in the Premier League where Manchester City and Liverpool continue their battle for the trophy.
PSG try to Rebound after Shocking Home Draw
PSG were only able to salvage one point in the home match against Strasbourg, but they can recuperate the points lost on the road. Lille is the team sitting in the second place and one of the best French football clubs when it comes to the matches played at home. PSG are however head and shoulders above their opponents, as reflected by the odds of 3/4 offered by bet365 Sports. The match takes place at 7:45 PM UK time and those who bet on the hosts to cause a major upset will be paid at 7/2.
Easy Task for Manchester City on the Road
Manchester City will travel to London for a match against Crystal Palace, a team they have dominated in recent years. They are desperate to pick up all three points, since they must maintain their advantage of one point over Liverpool. The odds only stand at 1/3, but 888 Sport offers massive value of 8/1 on the hosts to produce an upset. The draw is an equally unlikely outcome, but the odds of 9/2 make it a tempting proposition, given the lack of pressure on Crystal Palace.
Liverpool and Chelsea Play the Premier League Derby
Liverpool will have home pitch advantage in the match scheduled at 4:30 PM UK time against Chelsea. These two teams have played many games against each other, but this time the stakes are particularly high. Liverpool needs a victory to stay within striking distance of Manchester City, while Chelsea are fighting for a Champions League placement. The visitors are more likely to settle for one point and the draw is priced at 3/1 at Winner Sports. Victory is the only acceptable result for Liverpool and punters who bet on this outcome will enjoy odds of 13/20.
