Top European Football Clubs Play on the Road on SaturdayPublished March 16, 2019 by Florin P
Across Europe, title holders and current leaders play away from home in their quest of grabbing the needed points for another trophy.
Just a few days after the Champions League and Europa League have concluded, the most important European football clubs are back in action. On Saturday, all the important championships are in full swing and the favorites to win the trophy play on this day. The English first division is the exception, as the top teams play in the FA Cup instead of the Premier League.
Manchester United and City See FA Cup Action
Manchester United have a more difficult mission on the road at Wolverhampton, but punters betting on their victory get odds of 13/10 at bet365 Sports. Meanwhile, Manchester City are heavy favorites again Swansea, with odds of 1/5 reflecting the difference between the two teams. Elsewhere, Newcastle and Bournemouth play the most balanced match of the day at 3 PM UK time. Bournemouth have home pitch advantage and are the only 11/10, while the visitors are priced at 5/2.
Atletico Madrid Cling on the La Liga Podium
Atletico Madrid have virtually no chance of winning the trophy in the Spanish first division, but they still try to finish this championship in the second place. In order to do so, they need to pick up all three points against Athletic Bilbao and 888 Sport offers odds of 11/10 on this to happen. Meanwhile, Real Madrid are expected to steamroll past Celta Vigo and add to their misery. Punters who bet on the Champions League reigning champions can only expect odds of 1/4.
Vital Matches for Dortmund and AS Roma
Both teams are in dire need of a victory in the matches played on the road, even though they have different objectives. Dortmund have squandered an excellent opportunity to win the German Bundesliga and now they are tied for the lead with the reigning champions. They have a difficult match to play in Berlin against Hertha, so Intertops offers odds of 9/10 on them to triumph.
In Italy, AS Roma will need to win their match at Spal if they are to have a chance at finishing within top four at the end of the season. Odds of 4/5 at Winner Sports are rather low for a match played away from home, but that’s because the hosts are in awful form. A draw isn’t terribly unlikely and is priced at 3/1.
