The Best European Football Teams Scheduled to Play on SaturdayPublished December 5, 2020 by Florin P
Real Madrid and Sevilla fight for a place on the La Liga podium, while Bayern Munich plays against Leipzig for a temporary Bundesliga first place.
Football fans are in for a treat this Saturday, when the reigning champions and many of the current leaders are scheduled to play. Exciting games will take place in all the important European tournaments, with most of the favorites playing on the road against highly motivated opponents.
Bayern Munich and Leipzig Chase Bundesliga Top Spot
Bayern Munich and Leipzig are in excellent form and they are currently separated by only two points. The reigning champions are ahead but in order to stay there they will need to win or at least split points in Munich. This should be a straightforward task, since they never lost to Leipzig in front of the fans, but the match won’t be easy by any means. The fact that bet365 Sports offers odds of 1/2 on the hosts and 4/1 on the visitors highlights the difference between the two teams and the likelihood to have a home victory.
Real Madrid and Sevilla Play Coin Flip Match
Real Madrid was defeated in the Champions League by Shakthar, the Ukrainian team that also beat them in the Spanish capital. With their future in the most important European competition in doubt, they need to focus on the domestic league. It won’t be an easy mission for the reigning champions, as they play on the road at Sevilla, a team that won the last 5 games. Real Madrid have an edge in the head to head games, but overall this match is too close to call and bet365 Sports offers odds of 8/5 on each team to win
Montpellier Have Home Pitch Advantage against PSG
PSG were unable to win back-to-back games in November, but they are still way ahead of the opposition in the French first division. Their Champions League performances have been shaky, but they are expected to continue their dominant run on the domestic front. Playing on the road doesn’t mean much when the games are played without supporters, so the odds of 1/2 on the visitors are justified. Montpellier are playing stellar football recently, with four consecutive wins and are priced at 4/1 in this encounter.
Juventus and Torino Lock Horns in City Derby
The city of Torino has its own local Derby, one that was heavily tilted towards Juventus over the decades. Things look very much alike this Saturday when the reigning champions play the role of hosts and get odds of 2/5. This is excellent value for a team that has dominated the head to head matches recently and lost just one of the last nine matches. 888 Sport offers odds of 6/1 on Torino to win its second game on the road, but the high number of players missing or suspended further hurt their chances.
