The First Winners and Relegated Teams to be decided on SaturdayPublished April 20, 2019 by Florin P
Manchester City, Juventus and Barcelona are big favorites in the home matches, while the race for the European competitions continues in Serie A and La Liga.
One day before Easter, most of the important European football leagues have scheduled the vast majority of football matches. The most exciting ones are played in England, but for the Italian and Spanish teams, this Saturday promises to be special. In the evening, we are likely to have the winners confirmed mathematically, while learning the names of at least one more relegated team.
Juventus and Barcelona Ready to Lift the Trophy
Juventus and Barcelona have played difficult matches at home midweek and are now expected to fulfill a simple formality. Both have home pitch advantage and are the overwhelming favorite against Real Sociedad and Fiorentina. Punters who bet on both of them to win will only get even odds on the accumulator at 888 Sport, with 3/10 for Barcelona and 1/2 for Juventus. The visitors lack the motivation, as they are certain to finish outside the European League placements regardless of the outcome of this match.
All Serie A Matches are played on Saturday
The Italian first division has all the matches of this round scheduled for Saturday afternoon and evening, so football fans can properly celebrate Easter. Chievo are officially relegated and they are likely to lose another match on the road against Lazio who will make a desperate attempt for a Champions League berth. Frosinone could become the second team to be relegated, if they failed to defeat Cagliari on the road. The hosts get odds of 11/10 at bet365 Sports while a victory for Lazio is priced at only 1/5.
Manchester City and Tottenham Meet again at Noon
Without a doubt the most exciting match of the day is the one between Manchester City and Tottenham. These teams have met twice within a week in the Champions League quarterfinals and this game is just as important. Manchester City need the victory to overtake Liverpool once again, while Tottenham require the three points to stay ahead of Arsenal and Chelsea. Winner Sports expects the reigning champions to prevail in the match starting at 12:30 PM UK time and only offers odds of 7/10 on their victory.
