Red Hot Teams Fight for a Champions League Spot this SundayPublished March 14, 2021 by Florin P
Arsenal and Tottenham square off in the London classic this Sunday, while AC Milan welcome Napoli in a key game for their chances to win the championship.
The Europa League adventure continues for top football leagues such as AC Milan, Tottenham and Arsenal. Meanwhile, Leipzig have suffered an untimely elimination from the Champions League and can now focus on the domestic front. All these football clubs play on Sunday, trying to improve their placement in the domestic championship and qualify for European leagues next season.
Arsenal and Tottenham Play a Minor London Derby
Arsenal are back on track after winning two of the last three games and splitting points in the other. Sadly for them, they are far from the podium and the best case scenario is to qualify for the Europa League. Tottenham are in a slightly better position, but they’re still outside the Champions League placement. The outcome of this London Derby is critical for both contenders and the match looks like the perfect coin flip. 888 Sport offers identical odds of 8/5 on each team to win, while the draw is priced at 12/5.
Monaco Tests Lille’s quality on the Road this Sunday
Monaco are the pleasant surprise of this Ligue 1 season and they continue to impress at home. After defeating PSG on the road, they try to pick up valuable points against Lille in Monte Carlo. They have a stellar home record that can be further improved, but the leaders are also exceptionally good on the road. Odds of 13/10 offered by 888 Sport are tempting but not exactly irresistible. It is far more appealing to bet on Lille to pick up another victory on the road, an outcome priced at 23/10 by the same bookie.
Frankfurt Seek to Add to Leipzig’s Disappointment
Leipzig played awful football against Liverpool midweek and didn’t even look like trying to qualify. They can now channel all their resources and energy to their Bundesliga campaign and hope to win the trophy. A far more reasonable goal would be to finish on the podium, as they sit in second place with a sizable lead over the pack. This could shrink if they lose to Frankfurt at home, a result that will produce odds of 7/2. A more likely home win, given the head to head record is valued at 7/10 by bet365 Sports.
Fading AC Milan Welcomes High-Scoring Napoli
AC Milan were unable to win the last two home games, but picked up victories on the road. On Sunday at 7:45 PM UK time they return to San Siro to face Napoli in a decisive game for their chances to win the Serie A. In spite of their recent struggles, they are regarded as narrow favorites with odds of 16/10, while the visitors are priced at 17/10. Napoli scored a total of 10 goals in the last four games, but they were still eliminated from Europa League and sit in the sixth place in Serie A.
