Sunday Wraps up a Busy Weekend in European Football

Local derbies and long-time rivalries between former champions are reignited on Sunday across the most important European football leagues.

Even the best things eventually come to an end and an exciting weekend of European football concludes on Sunday evening. There are only a couple of derbies scheduled for this day, but punters can expect at least one high profile match in each championship. 888 Sport dedicates ample coverage to these games and provides players with the opportunity of betting live on all of them.

Four Teams from London Play on Sunday

Of all the football clubs scheduled to play today, Chelsea are credited with the best chance to win. Even though they play on the road, bet365 Sports has them priced at 7/10 to defeat Newcastle. They have won all the games played so far, while the hosts are winless in the last six matches. Watford and Crystal Palace are locked in a match that is important for both teams in the race to avoid relegation. Punters get odds of 3/2 on the hosts and 2/1 on the visitors, with the same value allotted to a draw. Fulham have home pitch advantage and will try to capitalize on Burnley’s Europa League distraction and win at even odds.

Delayed Start in Serie A for Genoa Teams

Genoa and Sampdoria didn’t play in the opening round after the bridge collapse tragedy. They have a good chance to pick up points on Sunday in the matches scheduled at 7:30 PM against Udinese and Empoli. The main favorites of this round are Inter Milan and Fiorentina, both given odds of 1/2 at 888 Sport. The former suffered a narrow margin defeat on the road at Sassuolo, while the latter didn’t play at all. The only match scheduled at 5 PM UK time is the one between Spal and Parma, two former Serie B teams. The hosts are given even odds to prevail, while those who bet on the visitors enjoy odds of 3/1.

A lot of Pressure in the Bordeaux vs Monaco Derby

The new season started horribly wrong for Bordeaux who lost both games so far. Monaco were also denied victory in the most recent round and will try to recuperate the lost points. The most exciting match of the day is the one involving these two teams and scheduled for 4 PM me UK time. In spite of having home pitch advantage, Bordeaux are actually the slight underdogs and get odds of 2/1. Punters who bet on the visitors to prevail can expect bet365 Sports to offer odds of 7/5, while a draw is priced at 12/5. Elsewhere, Marseille are expected to have an easier job against Rennes as reflected by the odds of 1/2.

Dortmund and Leipzig Lock Horns on Sunday

Bayern Munich is arguably the best team in the German first division and there’s a big gap separating them from the pack. At some distance behind, Leipzig and Dortmund are trying to stay within striking distance. Their real objective for this season is to secure a place that will guarantee their presence in the Champions League in 2019. Dortmund are expected to make the first step in that direction, by defeating their rivals. They are given odds of 4/5 by Winner Sports, while Leipzig to win on the road are priced at 7/2. A draw shouldn’t be dismissed as unlikely and the odds of 3/1 fully justify the risks taken.
