Top European Teams Put Any Precautions Aside on SaturdayPublished May 11, 2019 by Florin P
More Champions League and Europa League places are expected to fill up the Saturday, as key matches are scheduled in Germany, Scotland and Italy.
The winners of most of the important European tournaments have already been determined, but the race for the Champions League is red-hot. This weekend, the most exciting matches are scheduled in the German Bundesliga, the Italian Serie A and the Scottish Premier League.
Today, Draws Help Nobody in the German Bundesliga
Bayern are one victory away from winning another German Bundesliga and they will try to claim it on Saturday against Leipzig. The hosts lack any motivation, as they are certain to finish in the third-place, so odds of 3/4 look attractive. Hoffenheim and Dortmund are also big favorites at home, in their bid to win the trophy, respectively secure a Champions League berth. Those who bet on both to win at 888 Sport will get even odds on the accumulator. Punters who bet on Leverkusen can only expect odds of 9/20, since Schalke 04 has successfully avoided relegation and travels to BayArena with no clear objective.
Everything on the Line for Lazio, AC Milan and Atalanta
Last week’s matches have only complicated the race for Champions League places in the Italian Serie A. Atalanta are in the driver’s seat, with three points over AS Roma and can wrap it up with a victory over Genoa. They play on the road against Juventus in the last round, so they need to make the most of the odds of 2/5 offered by bet365 Sports and win. The visitors will defend for 90 minutes and try to walk away with a draw, as they are two positions above the relegation line. Lazio and AC Milan play on the road against Cagliari and Fiorentina, in matches where victory is the only acceptable result. Lazio are priced at 3/4 and AC Milan get much better odds of 7/5, while both play against complacent teams.
Kilmarnock Seeks Rare European Berth on Saturday
Kilmarnock have a rare opportunity of playing in the Europa League qualifiers, as they are tied with Aberdeen, but have a better goal average. They have their fatr in their own hands, but can’t settle for anything less than victory against Hibernian. That’s because they play on the road against Rangers in the last round and they have an awful track record against the former champions. Intertops Sportsbook offer amazing odds of 1/1 on Kilmarnock to build on their solid home record against an unmotivated team.
