The Best European Football Clubs Play Domestic League Games on SaturdayPublished November 2, 2019 by Florin P
This Saturday afternoon and evening sees all the important European teams playing home and away games before a busy Champions League week.
This week, football fans don’t have to wait until Sunday for the most exciting matches, as the top European teams play on Saturday. There’s action in all the important championships, with the Premier League and La Liga bringing the strongest football clubs back into the spotlight. Only a few derbies are scheduled for this day, yet the favorites are expected to lock horns with ambitious and motivated teams.
Hard Away Games for Manchester United and Liverpool
Manchester United have picked up valuable points on the road against Norwich and will try to double down on that result against Bournemouth. This time, they will have a more difficult mission, as reflected by the odds of 6/5, while the hosts are priced of 2/1. In the past, when these two teams have met, a lot of yellow cards were shown and plenty of goals were scored by both sides. Liverpool should have a slightly easier mission against newly-promoted Aston Villa, but they have shown signs of weakness in recent games. That’s why the odds of 2/5 offered by bet365 Sports on them to win are not truly worth the risk.
Sevilla and Atletico Madrid Play for the First Place in La Liga
Real Madrid and Barcelona play important games on Saturday afternoon against the likes of Betis and Levante. Both are expected to prevail and punters who bet on their victories on the same betting slip will enjoy combined even odds. Far more exciting is the evening fixture between Sevilla and Atletico Madrid, scheduled for 5:30 PM UK time. The two teams are separated by a single point and the winner could temporarily claim first place in the Spanish top flight. 888 Sport credits Sevilla with the first chance because they play in front of their fans and offers odds of 7/5, as opposed to 23/10 on Atletico Madrid.
Torino and Juventus Square Off in Local Derby
Inter Milan should be able to defend their advantage over Juventus, as they play against Bologna on the road. Meanwhile, the reigning champions face their local rivals in a match where they assume the position of visitors. Torino lost a single match this season, but conceded plenty of goals, which makes them quite vulnerable against a team famous for its pragmatism. Winner Sports expects Juventus to prevail and offers odds of 13/20 on their victory in the match starting at 7:45 PM UK time. Earlier on Saturday, AS Roma and Napoli play what looks like a coin flip match in which both teams get odds of 8/5 to win.
