The Hottest Weekend Matches are Scheduled for Friday EveningPublished February 14, 2020 by Florin P
Valencia takes on Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund welcomes Frankfurt on Friday evening in the best derbies of this weekend.
It is not customary for the most exciting football matches to be scheduled on Friday, but this is the case this weekend. All the important European football leagues have the most highly anticipated games unfolding on Friday evening. The English, Spanish, German and French first divisions will pit some of the most in-form teams against each other, as they chase ambitious objectives in 2020.
Wolverhampton and Leicester Play a Tough Match to Call
Leicester continued to exceed expectations in the English Premier League, even though they have recently lost steam. Playing on the road against Wolverhampton won’t be easy, hence the odds of 19/10 available at bet365 Sports. Leicester is a great traveling team, with seven victories on the road, but they take on an opponent that lost just three games at home. The match is scheduled for 8 PM UK time and the hosts are slight favorites, with odds of 3/2.
Valencia are Narrow Underdogs against Atletico Madrid
Valencia were comprehensively beaten by Getafe after winning back-to-back home games, including a match against Barcelona. They are once again playing in front of their fans and this time, they take on Atletico Madrid. The visitors have a serious problem in scoring goals regardless of venue, but won’t travel to Mestalla to defend the scoreless draw. 888 Sport credits them with the first chance and odds of 3/2, but the difference is quite small and Valencia looks particularly tempting at 2/1.
Borussia Dortmund Underpriced ahead of Clash with Frankfurt
Borussia Dortmund found a way to squander a lead against Leverkusen and failed to take advantage of the scoreless draw between Munich and Leipzig. They can make amends on Friday evening at 7:30 PM UK time when they welcome Frankfurt. Odds of 9/20 offered by 10bet Sportsbook on them to win reflect the difference in form between these two teams. Their opponents, however, are known for causing a lot of trouble to top German teams and punters will surely be enticed by the odds of 6/1 on their victory.
Montpellier Seek Rare Victory on the Road against Monaco
Monaco has improved its performance on the road but remains far more dangerous when it has the support of its fans. Montpellier, on the other hand, is relying almost exclusively on home pitch advantage and has a single victory in 11 games away. They will gladly settle for one point against Monaco and punters betting on the double chance wager will be paid at even odds if the visitors don’t lose. A more likely outcome for this match is a narrow home win and Winner Sports has Monaco priced at 9/10.
