Sunday Matches Pit Big Favorites against Relegation Threatened ClubsPublished December 9, 2018 by Florin P
European football winds down on Sunday, with fewer and seemingly lopsided matches that provide punters with great betting opportunities.
A busy football weekend concludes on Sunday and only a handful of matches are scheduled in major European football leagues on this day. The most exciting ones are played in the Italian and Spanish championships, where struggling giants try to recuperate the points lost early on. This is also the day when the second leg of the Copa Libertadores will decide the winner in the match played in Spain.
Real Madrid has Easy Mission on the Road
The reigning Champions League winners are struggling in the fifth place, but they have an excellent opportunity to close the gap separating them from the leaders. That’s because they play on the road against Huesca, a newly promoted team and the main candidate to relegate. 888 Sport only offers odds of 7/20 on the visitors to prevail, not surprisingly given the fact that Huesca is winless at home. The odds on a draw are also tempting, currently standing at 9/2, as the hosts will defend with all lines.
AC Milan Welcomes Torino to San Siro
AC Milan sit in the fourth place, but they are 15 points behind leaving Juventus and have no chance whatsoever to win the trophy. The best they can do is to salvage the season by finishing among the top four teams, to secure another Champions League berth. They are currently on track, but can’t afford to drop points against Torino, so they’ll throw everything they’ve got for a victory. We get excellent odds of 9/20 at bet365 Sports on the home side to win, with a draw priced at 5/2 and an away win at 7/2.
River Plate and Boca Juniors Play a Classic Derby
For the first time in the history of Copa Libertadores River Plate and Boca Juniors meet in the final act of the competition, in Madrid at 7:30 PM UK time. There is huge rivalry between these two teams and it erupted violently on the pitch. That’s why the second leg will be played on neutral venue in Spain and it looks like an incredibly close of fair. We get identical odds of 19/10 at Winner Sport on each team to win and the draw is priced at 2/1.
