Top 5 European Football League’s Betting Action 01-02 February 2020 Including the Madrid Derby
It is Matchday 24 in the English Premier League, Matchday 22 in La Liga, Ligue 1 and Serie A and Matchday 20 in the Bundesliga. The leagues are taking shape with qualification to UEFA Champions League 20/21 season as the biggest goal.
Premier League: Manchester United v Wolves
Both teams have 34 points each, making this fixture interesting to watch. Although Manchester United has a better goal difference, a win for either side assures a good chance to fight for the top 4. In the first leg of the 19/20 season at the Molineux Stadium, the teams drew 1-1.
Wolves will be relying on the impressive Adama Traore to continue their top 4 chase. A win for them will make it the most improved season in the last decade in the English top-flight football.
Manchester might have lost their Captain to Inter Milan, and suffered defeat at Old Trafford January 22nd to Burnley, but they still have hopes to turn their fortunes around. Although Marcus Rashford is going to be a huge miss, the growing on-form Martial is a big step towards retaining their hopes for Champions League football next season.
La Liga: Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid
Santiago Bernabeu will play host to the battle of the Spanish Capital. Real Madrid has won almost 45% of their past meetings against Atletico. The home team has collected maximum points from the last 4 games and will strive to capitalise on this game to cement their pole position in the League. Atletico is 10 points behind, and if they win, they might jump into top 3. The first leg of the 19/20 season ended in a barren draw.
The free-scoring Benzema will lead the Real front as the now-settled Bale will want to prove his commitment to the club. The Hazard – Modric combination would be heavily relied on to close the game in good time. Alvaro Morata, Joao Felix and Correa, on the other hand, will have to work extra harder to capture the top 3 spots, amidst the growing influence of Real’s defence.
Serie A: Juventus v Fiorentina
Having tasted their second defeat of the season, the league leaders have to brush off their bruises and focus on their next match. Fiorentina isn’t having the best of their season, but 2 wins and a draw in the last 3 games have improved their hopes in climbing to the top half of the table. A win will get them to position 10.
Cristiano will be on everyone’s tongue as he marshals up Juventus strikers. Being the better of their opponents by over 65% of total games played, Juventus would want to seal their place as the team of the decade in Italian Football. Dybala has confirmed staying for the rest of the season, which will boost their attack.
The arrival of Cutrone from Wolverhampton is set to raise Fiorentina’s fighting spirit as they try to close the 26 points gap.

Bundesliga: Borussia Dortmund v Union Berlin
Borussia Dortmund and Union Berlin lie position 4 and 11 respectively in the Bundesliga. A win for Borussia Dortmund will catapult them to position 3, with same points as Bayern Munchen while Union Berlin might climb to position 9. Their 19/20 first leg meeting saw Union Berlin beat Borussia 3-1.
However, the incoming of wonder boy Erling Haaland has improved Borussia’s attack and is arguably the most promising footballer in the Bundesliga right now. On the other hand, Union Berlin’s Sebastian Andersson will lead the attack in search of goals.
Ligue 1: PSG v Montpellier HSC
The battle of the top 4 will be the match to watch in the French Top flight. Both teams have won their last 3 Ligue 1 fixtures, and a win for Montpellier HSC will close down PSG’s dominance. The last meeting on December 7th, 2019 ended 3-1 in favour of PSG.
There is no doubt that PSG are the favourites in this game and all bookmakers’ odds confirm that. With in-form Neymar, Mbappe’s star shining brighter and Icardi consistently growing, the PSG frontline is the team to beat this season in Ligue 1 and possibly across all top 5 European leagues.
Andy Delort is consistently proving his contribution to Montpellier with 8 goals to his name. Florent Mollet and Gaetan Laborde will also come in handy to get the goals.
