Sunday Derbies Sweep European Football Fans off their FeetPublished February 9, 2020 by Florin P
Sunday is the day of European football derbies, with the best teams in the Bundesliga, Serie A, La Liga and Ligue playing potentially decisive matches.
This Sunday promises to be truly special for football fans who pay close attention to major European leagues. There are derbies scheduled in most of these championships, with the Italian, French and German divisions bringing in the big guns. Some of these fixtures have the potential to decide the eventual winner of the championships, others are simply timeless derbies of extraordinary intensity.
Inter Milan and AC Milan Play a Classic Serie A Derby
Inter Milan have lost the first place to Juventus and shouldn’t expect any leniency from their biggest rivals. AC Milan will assume the role of the visiting team but they will have plenty of fans in the stands to create a fantastic atmosphere. The reason why Inter Milan only get even odds that bet365 Sports, while their opponents are priced at 3/1, is their strong home record. They were defeated just once in front of the fans, whereas AC Milan lost five out of 11 games on the road and are yet to draw a match.
Bayern Munich and Leipzig Fight for the Bundesliga Trophy
Bayern Munich and Leipzig have been right from the start the main favorites to win the German first division. Leipzig were able to lead the Bundesliga for most of the season, but they are now trailing the reigning champions. Returning to the first place is not going to be easy, but they have a golden chance when they travel to Munich. Playing on the road against Bayern carries obvious risks, as reflected by the odds of 6/1 at 888 Sport. The hosts are expected to prevail with relative ease and get odds of 9/20.
Real Madrid and Barcelona Play Must-Win Away Games
Real Madrid were able to defeat their city rivals in spite of having several players injured or suspended. Now they play on the road but their chances to prevail look even better against the newly promoted Osasuna. Some of their players have returned to form, but the hosts have lost just twice in 11 matches. Barcelona will have a more difficult task in Sevilla, where Betis are always willing to go the extra mile. This presents punters with the opportunity to bet at odds of 7/10 at bet365 Sports on the Catalans to win.
PSG Ready to Settle Old Score with Lyon
PSG could well be presented with the trophy already, as they have a commanding lead over Olympic Marseille. All that is left for them to do is to settle scores with old rivals before the Champions League playoffs resume later this month. There’s no better time to showcase their class and obvious superiority over Lyon than on Sunday night at 8 PM UK time. The reigning champions play at home where they have allowed only six goals the entire season and will aim for a convincing victory over Lyon.
