Premier League Matches Steal the Show on SaturdayPublished September 14, 2019 by Florin P
High stakes matches mark the return of flagship European tournaments on Saturday after the Euro 2020 qualifiers break.
The Premier League is widely regarded as the strongest football championship in the world and it has the international results to back up this claim. On Saturday, the best teams from the English top division will be back in the race for the trophy and they won’t settle for anything less than three points. Elsewhere, Barcelona and Valencia play an exciting La Liga derby, while Bayern Munich and Dortmund try to extend their dominance in Germany over tough opponents.
All the Best English Teams Play on Saturday Afternoon
Manchester City and Liverpool are the big favorites to win on Saturday in the first and last matches of the day. They only get odds of 1/5 to defeat Norwich, respectively Newcastle, so they should defend the first two places in the Premier League. Manchester United have a more difficult mission against Leicester, even though they play at home and have no injury concerns. bet365 Sports offers odds of 9/10 on the hosts to prevail, which in spite of their recent struggles are simply too good to turn down. The best return on investment is enjoyed by punters who bet on Chelsea to prevail on the road against Wolverhampton. This match looks like the perfect coin flip, with both the Blues and the Wolves getting odds of 17/10.
Barcelona and Valencia Play the First La Liga Derby
Real Madrid and Barcelona are hard-pressed to return to the top of the Spanish first division after the disappointing season starts. The former have an easy mission in the first match of the day against Levante that starts at noon. Meanwhile, Barcelona will have to play their best against Valencia in the last match scheduled on Saturday. Even though they have home pitch advantage, punters can expect exceptional odds of 1/2 at 888 Sport, which is significantly more than they got in the last seasons. The last time Barcelona played at home, they have scored five goals, so a bet on a high number of goals is pending.
Bayern Munich and Dortmund Face Stringy Opponents
Bayern Munich and Dortmund are the teams that will likely fight once again for the Bundesliga trophy this season. They were unable to win all the three games played so far, so they are compelled to double their efforts and prevail on Saturday afternoon. Dortmund play at home against Leverkusen, a team they have defeated in the last three games. The host will have several players missing, while the visitors are at full strength, hence the odds of 4/5 on Borussia. Bayern Munich have an equally difficult mission on the road against Leipzig, the only team with three victories in just as many matches. Punters who are willing to bet on the reigning champions will enjoy odds of 9/10 at Winner Sports, while the hosts get 3/1.
