Trophy Hunters Brace for Taxing Games on the Road this WeekendPublished April 28, 2022 by Florin P
Manchester City, Liverpool, and Chelsea seek victories on the road in the Premier League, while Inter Milan and Lazio chase similar results in the Italian Serie A.
English teams have reconfirmed their dominance in Europe but now return to domestic duty. Manchester City, Liverpool, and Chelsea play key games on the road this weekend in their quest to secure their objectives for 2022. Elsewhere, Lazio and Inter Milan play on the road with their backs against the wall, as nothing short of victory will fulfill their expectations.
Manchester City Travels to Leeds
Manchester City made it unnecessarily difficult against Real Madrid, in a match, they dominated from start to finish. They are expected to be far more clinical on the road against Leeds, who will defend with all lines for 90 minutes. The leaders don’t have the home pitch advantage this time, but they are clear favorites, as reflected by the odds of 3/10 offered by bet365 sports, while the hosts get 6/1.
Newcastle Braces for Liverpool Visit
Liverpool dealt with Villarreal in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final and is likely to qualify for the final act of the competition. They should have an easy time on the road against Newcastle, a team that saved itself from relegation. The hosts are still in the process of reconstruction, so the odds of 11/2 are justified, while bet365 sports offers odds of 2/5 on the visitors to prevail.
Everton and Chelsea Aim for Key Win
Chelsea is another English team desperate for points this weekend, as it travels to Everton. A victory will suffice for the Londoners in their quest to secure any other Champions League berth, an outcome priced at 3/4 by bet365 sports. Everton can’t settle for a draw either, as the team is deep in the relegation zone and needs to win this match. Such a victory would be regarded as an upset, priced at 4/1.
Must-Win Match for Lazio at Spezia
Spezia saved itself from relegation and can now afford to play prudently both at home and on the road. This is not a luxury Lazio can afford, as the visitors will push for victory away from the nation’s capital. They need all three points to play in the Europa League next season and will try to convert the odds of 7/10 offered by 1xBet into reality. Spezia has caused upsets before and a win for them is priced at 4/1.
Do or Die Match for Inter at Udinese
Inter Milan allowed a significant advantage to going to waste and is now on the verge of losing the Serie A title to its biggest rival. To remain in the race, they need to defeat Udinese on the road, an outcome priced at 3/5 by 1xBet. The hosts are in amazing form, having recently defeated Fiorentina, so the odds of 5/1 on them to win are robbed of appealing.
