The Strongest Football Leagues Resume This Weekend Across EuropePublished August 11, 2022 by Florin P
The Spanish La Liga, the English Premier League, the French Ligue 1, and the German Bundesliga have returned, ushering in the start of a fantastic football season in Europe.
European football has returned and this weekend, you can bet on the strongest championships and the best teams continent-wide. English, German, French and Spanish teams are scheduled to play on Saturday and Sunday, with some of them locking holes in highly anticipated derbies.
Londoners Play the First Premier League Derbies
Chelsea and Tottenham will play the first Derby of the season, with the Blues having home pitch advantage and the first chance to win. The last time Tottenham defeated them in the Premier League was in 2018 and it is unlikely that they will be more successful on Sunday. bet365 sports offers odds of 13/10 on the home side to win and 23/10 on the visitors, while the draw is valued at 5/2. Arsenal and Leicester play on Saturday, with the Gunners heavy favorites at 1/2 and the visitors get out of 6/1.
Monaco and PSG to Extend Solid Season Start
PSG started this season with a solid victory on the road and is expected to double down on that win against Montpellier. They have a squad at full strength and the offensive is finally clicking, so odds of 1/2 offered by bet365 sports are justified. If the visitors cause a significant upset, those who bet on their victory will be paid at 20/1. Elsewhere, Monaco welcomes Rennes who suffered a disappointing defeat at home in the opening round. We like Monaco to win and fancy the odds of 11/10 on the home side.
Leipzig and Leverkusen Must Offset Poor Debut
Leipzig and Leverkusen failed to pick up points in the opening round and must do better if they are to standard chance to qualify for European competitions. Leipzig welcomes Koln, and Leverkusen will play against Augsburg in games where they are heavy favorites though prevail. 1xBet offers odds of 9/20 on Leipzig and 3/10 on Leverkusen, so players should also consider an accumulator. These teams perform better in the first half, so there's a good chance for them to take the lead in the 45 minutes.
Barcelona and Real Madrid Poised for Easy Wins
Barcelona will try to take an early lead and take advantage of a fairly easy season start. The opening match should be easy to win against Rayo Vallecano come on a team that performs traditionally better in front of its fans. Real Madrid is also likely to pick up three points despite playing on the road, as newly promoted Almeria isn't a real threat. Odds of 1/5 on Barcelona and 9/20 on Real Madrid offered by 1xBet reflect the difference between the two teams and would be perfect for an accumulator bet.
