Spanish, French, English and German Top Teams Brace for Difficult TravelsPublished August 29, 2021 by Florin P
Monaco and Wolverhampton try to rebound after catastrophic season starts, while Manchester United and Atletico Madrid hope to consolidate their gains.
Supporters have returned the stadiums, so playing on the road is once again a big challenge. For the top teams from the English, German, French and Spanish first divisions, this is an obstacle that can be overcome. They are scheduled to play against defensive minded teams that won’t give up without a fight.
Manchester United Try to Hand 3rd Defeat to Wolverhampton
Wolverhampton won an EFL match but their performance in the Premier League is disappointing. They were defeated in both games played so far and failed to score a single goal. This doesn’t bode well ahead of a match against Manchester United, even though they have home pitch advantage. 888 Sport senses the weakness in the home team, hence the odds of 7/2, whereas the visitors are priced at 3/4 to win.
Troyes Hope to Take Advantage of Monaco’s Busy Schedule
Troyes has returned to the French first division after crushing competitors in the inferior leagues. They are yet to win a match and were defeated on two occasions, while splitting points against Strasbourg. Another draw in the match played against Monaco would be regarded as a huge success. This is the result that the host will be gunning for, knowing that the visitors might suffer from fatigue. Monaco played in the Champions League qualifiers and are priced at 3/4 by 888 Sport, while the home side gets 7/2
Wolsburg Chases 3rd Consecutive Bundesliga Win over Leipzig
Wolsburg is punching above its weight, with consecutive victories in the German top flight. They will be hard-pressed to defeat Leipzig, a team of a different caliber compared to their recently vanquished foes. The home side has a solid defensive, so the odds of 24/10 offered by bet365 Sports are tempting. Leipzig is the favorite in this match after crushing Stuttgart last week and they get odds of 11/10 on the road.
Atletico Madrid Welcomes Win-Less Villarreal on Sunday
Atletico Madrid will try to defend the trophy won last season and so far their campaign is going well. Back-to-back victories by the odd goal were good enough to keep them at the top of La Liga. Facing Villarreal would normally be a stern challenge, but the visitors are in terrible form. Winless in the last nine matches, they are priced at 7/2 to cause an upset in the nation’s capital. Punters who back the home side to prevail will be paid at 3/4 by bet365 Sports if the reigning champions pick up all three points.
