The Hottest European Football Clubs Play on Sunday Afternoon and EveningPublished December 6, 2020 by Florin P
Opportunity presents itself for the most in-form English, French and German teams to take temporary lead in the domestic championship.
Many of the top European football leagues are rocked by surprise results recently, with favorites failing to win back-to-back games. This has provided some of the clubs that spend less time in the spotlight in recent years with the opportunity to take the lead. The most in-form teams are now scheduled to play on Sunday and if they outshine their bitter rivals, they could take temporary lead in the domestic leagues.
Tottenham and Arsenal Play a Thrilling London Derby
One of the most anticipated matches of the day in European football is the Derby of London between Tottenham and Arsenal. The two teams are in excellent form and make steady progress, with Tottenham claiming first place in the English Premier League. They are tied for the lead with Liverpool, but if they defeat the Gunners, an outcome price of 9/10, they can consolidate their position. Arsenal were recently defeated by Wolverhampton and today start with the second chance at odds of 29/10 at bet365 Sports.
Lille and Monaco Meet at Noon in the French Ligue 1
PSG is still dominating the French first division, but with the reigning champions struggling, opportunity presents itself for Lille and Monaco. The two teams are tied for second place with 23 points and they could claim temporary lead if PSG fail to defeat Montpellier. These are the teams with the best home records this season, but on Sunday at noon Lille have home pitch advantage. This has led to odds of 6/5 on the host and 2/1 on Monaco to win on the road, after they also won the last head to head match.
Schalke and Bayern Leverkusen Reignite Old Rivalry
Schalke and Bayern Leverkusen used to play some really exciting matches in the German Bundesliga. Today there is a huge gap separating the two teams, with being Leverkusen obviously the better team. This explains why they get odds of 1/2 even though they play on the road and have a few players missing for this fixture. Schalke haven’t won a match in the German first division for more than a year, so the odds of 5/1 available at 888 Sport are fully justified in spite of them having home pitch advantage.
Heerenveen and PSV Replay a Former Dutch Derby
A decade ago a match between Heerenveen and PSV would’ve been a treat for Dutch football fans, as these were some of the best teams in the Eredivisie. PSV has dominated the series in recent years, but the two teams are now separated by just a few points and Heerenveen have home pitch advantage. Even so, it is the visitors who start as clear favorites at 888 Sport, while the hosts are priced at 3/1. It’s important to mention that the last time PSV won on the road here happened in 2012.
