Saturday Pits Form against Class in Top European Football LeaguesPublished November 9, 2019 by Florin P
The most in-form European football clubs play against reigning champions who are ready to put an end to their formidable winnings streaks.
Most of the European football matches are scheduled for Saturday afternoon and evening, with exciting games in England, Spain, Germany and France. Some of the reigning champions are still trailing the leaders, but they are within striking distance and could overtake them if they win this weekend.
Red-Hot Leicester Welcome Arsenal at King Power Stadium
Leicester is the hottest team in the English Premier League after winning the last four matches with an average of four goals scored per game. On Saturday at 5:30 PM UK time they will have home pitch advantage against Arsenal, which grants them favorite status against the Gunners. 888 Sport prices a home win at 11/10, in a match that has the potential of turning into a scoring festival. The visitors have a busy schedule this time of the year and because of fatigue, they would gladly settle for a draw.
Valencia Puts Granada’s Form to the Test in La Liga
Granada has finally lost steam and the home defeat against Real Sociedad could be the beginning of the end for this season’s revelation. On the road they have been far more effective this season and they will have a difficult mission against Valencia. The hosts have alternated disappointing results with strong performances and are one of the teams yet to lose a match at home. This is not the kind of game where Valencia would settle for a point, so punters should consider odds of 3/4 on them to win at bet365 Sports.
Bayern Munich and Dortmund Square Off in Bundesliga Derby
Bayern Munich and Dortmund are the perennial favorites to win the German first division, but at the time of writing, they sit in the second and third places. The direct match could have important consequences and affect their chances to win the trophy, so the stakes are as high as they get. Bayern play this game at home and have an impressive track record against their archrivals when the game takes place in Munich. Punters shouldn’t expect odds higher than 3/5 on the reigning champions, but they get 4/1 on the visitors.
Brest’s Home Pitch Invincibility In Doubt Ahead of PSG Visit
PSG is still far ahead at the top of the German first lead, in spite of using the last match against Dijon. The narrow margin defeat suffered at the hands of the last-place team came as a shock ahead of their Champions League match. On Saturday afternoon at 4:30 PM UK time, they play on the road against another newly promoted team and once again, they are the overwhelming favorites to prevail. Odds of 1/4 are simply too low against a team that is yet to lose a match at home, especially with PSG also playing a taxing Champions League game on Wednesday.
