This Weekend Marks the Return of Top Tier European FootballPublished September 29, 2022 by Florin P
European domestic football leagues return into the spotlight this weekend, with high-profile derbies scheduled in England, Germany, Italy, and Spain.
The Nations League has ended, but European football continues, now that the top domestic leagues have returned. Exciting matches are scheduled for the weekend and you can bet pregame and live at 1xBet and bet365 sports to enjoy competitive odds on mainstream and niche betting markets.
The Bayern Derby Kicks Off on Friday
In the German top flight, Bayern Munich welcomes Leverkusen, in a derby between teams with the same name but different potential. The reigning champions are in great shape, winning in all competitions and they are expected to add another victory, as reflected by the odds of 7/20. Leverkusen are a surprising team odds of 13/2 are tempting, but their backline is too unreliable for this type of opponent.
Punters will encounter a similar situation in the Spanish La Liga, as Atletico Madrid and Sevilla are trying to return to their winning ways. Sevilla plays at home but starts with the second chance odds of 2/1 at bet365 sports, as opposed to 3/2 for the visitors. The latter have some players missing, so this is likely to be a heavily-fought game, potentially decided by the odd goal.
London and Manchester Turn into Volcanos
Arsenal and Tottenham have high expectations for this season and the winner of this match will come to a step closer to fruition. The team that wins will claim the solitary place, currently held by arsenal also starts with the first chance. A bet on the Gunners, you will enjoy the odds of 11/10, whereas a wager on Tottenham will produce odds of 3/2, in the Derby of London.
The most exciting match of the week pits Manchester City against Manchester United in a classic derby. The citizens are natural favorites, with odds of 2/5, while bet365 sports offers odds of 7/1 on Manchester United to cause another upset. This has happened more than once in the past, so even though this is not a bet for the risk-averse punters, it is worth considering.
Atalanta and Inter are Slight Home Favorites
Things are heating up in the Italian top flight, where Atalanta is tied for the lead with Napoli. Fiorentina is at the opposite end of the form, hence the favorite status for the house which gets even odds at 1xBet. Atalanta has the best backline in Serie A and will try to prevent the visitors from scoring and take a solitary lead. This match is likely to result in a high number of corner kicks and yellow cards, so keep that in mind.
Inter Milan and AS Roma are under tremendous pressure to turn the ship around after being largely disappointing in the first 7 rounds. They are currently outside the Champions League places and can’t settle for a draw, in this match. Inter is the slight favorite, as reflected by the even odds, whereas AS Roma is priced at 3/2 to cause an upset on the road and close the gap separating them from the top.
