Sunday Derbies Could Decide the Winners of Major European LeaguesPublished April 13, 2022 by Florin P
Real Madrid and PSG are one victory away from winning another domestic championship, while Napoli needs a victory to keep its faint Serie A trophy alive.
The Champions League semifinals are now decided, with the four best European teams waiting for the chance to advance to the final act. There are many more teams hoping for a similar performance next season and the names of several contenders will be revealed this weekend. The outcome of the matches can determine the teams to play in the most important continental competition. You can bet on these matches scheduled for Sunday at 1xBet and bet365 sports and enjoy the best odds.
PSG Needs One Victory to Win Ligue 1
The reigning French champions are just one victory away from claiming another trophy and they can secure it on Sunday. The match scheduled at 7:45 P.M UK time is special because it pits them against Marseille. These are their archrivals and the team sitting in second place at more than 20 points behind. Under these circumstances, it comes as no surprise that 1xBet only offers odds of 7/20 on PSG to win while pricing an away victory for Marseille at 6/1.
Leverkusen and Leipzig Play for the Podium
The two teams are out of the race for the championship but are well-positioned to finish on the Bundesliga podium. Leverkusen has a home pitch advantage and one point above Leipzig and also won the last match on the road. Even so, 1xBet credits them with the second chance and odds of 17/10, while the visitors are slight favorites at 14/10. No players are missing or suspended, but Leipzig also plays mid-week in the Europa League, so the hosts are fresher. We fancy them to pick up all three points tonight.
One Last Hurdle for Real Madrid to Overcome
Real Madrid survived a scare in front of the fans but managed to outlast Chelsea and secure passage to the Champions League groups. They will try to set another milestone on Sunday when they travel to Sevilla, where they need at least a point. The hosts are a stringy team, capable of causing an upset against the fatigued leaders, hence the odds of 19/10 at bet365 sports. Home pitch advantage is critical for this team, so we prefer them instead of Real Madrid who are favorites and get odds of 14/10 at the same bookmaker.
No Room for Error for Napoli and AS Roma
Napoli failed at home against Fiorentina and will need to step up its efforts if it is to prevail in the Serie A trophy race. AS Roma was on the verge of losing to Salernitana and got incredibly lucky to score twice in the final minutes of the game. They desperately need a win to have a shot at the Champions League, while Napoli needs all three points to challenge AC Milan and Inter. A draw is not acceptable for either team and we like the odds of 9/10 offered by bet365 sports on Napoli, better than the 3/1 on AS Roma.
