Top 5 European Football League’s Betting Action for the weekend 6/7 November Including Man Utd vs Man City
It’s Derby day in Manchester, Milan and Seville this weekend as United face City and AC take on Inter. This week also see’s a high profile clash in the Bundesliga as Bayern defend their position at the top of the league against 3rd place Freiburg. Here we preview the showcase matches taking place this weekend in Europes top 5 leagues and take a look at the match betting action.
Premier League: Man Utd vs Man City
Will Manchester be painted blue or red this weekend as the first United/City derby match of the season takes place? Both teams have had ups and downs in recent weeks, but United’s return to Old Trafford after their recent mauling by Liverpool will see the team taking on a very in form City side who had a surprising loss at home last weekend to Crystal Palace.
United seem to have regrouped since the loss to Liverpool, beating Tottenham 3-0 last weekend and grabbing a draw with Atalanta in UCL midweek. Ole still looks undecided on his best starting team, Jordan Sancho and Cavani on the bench with Ronaldo, Greenwood and Rashford the preferred starting forwards. After recent criticism of some of United’s defending, they will be looking to say compact against the threat of a high pressing attacking side such as City.
Pep Guardiola’s City side dropped points last weekend allowing Chelsea a 5 point lead at the top, they will not be wanting that point difference to increase and know a win at Old Trafford will not only see the blue half of Manchester celebrate into the night, it will also keep them within touching distance of the league leaders as well as throwing more misery onto their city rivals United.
As for the bookmakers, they have United as outsiders for the win with the best odds coming from VBet at 39/10 (4.90).
This is the game of the weekend and a ticket for either team to rise up the rankings. Keep an eye out for more exclusive bonuses and offers around this game.
La Liga: Real Betis vs Sevilla
A mouthwatering Seville Derby takes place this Sunday when Real Betis host fierce city rivals Real Betis in what promises to be La Liga’s top match this weekend.
Sevilla sit comfortably in 3rd position on 24 points, only behind 2nd placed Real Madrid on goal difference. Their recent form has been good, losing only one of their last 5 matches.
Real Betis took a real thumping at the hands of Atletico Madrid last week, but this was their first loss in four matches which included an impressive 4-1 destruction of Valencia. Manager Manuel Pellegrini knows a win over Sevilla give his team local bragging rights but also see them climb level on points and within reach of leaders Real Sociedad in what looks be a very tight La Liga once again. This is a very even game as far as the betting action looks, away team Sevilla are slight favourites overall, 8/5 (2.60) for a Sevilla win with Betway and Betfair.
Serie A: AC Milan vs Inter Milan
The Derby della Madonnina, also known as the Derby di Milano is one of the biggest matches in European football. The Rossoneri lie in 2nd place, 7 points above current champions Inter going into this game. A win for AC here would see them heading into the international break with a convincing lead over rivals Inter and 4th place Roma.
For AC, Theo Hernandez will play no part in the weekend’s Derby della Madonnina having gotten himself sent off against Roma on Sunday. The Frenchman scored the all-important winner and will be much missed against Inter. Stefano Pioli will head into this match on the back of a five-game winning streak, a run that has seen them draw level on points with 1st place Napoli.
Inter are also looking like a team in form at the moment, only losing once in their last five appearances. Edin Dzeko has settled well at the club and has already 7 seven goals to his name this season. Simone Inzaghi will understand how much this game means to the supporters of these two great Milanese clubs, and will also understand a loss to neighbours AC will see Inters chances of retaining the champions spot this season slip further away.
Surprisingly the bookies have Inter as favourites for the points. Higher placed and in form AC are great value with odds as high as 21/10 (3.10) with Bet Victor and Pari Match.
Bundesliga: Bayern vs Freiburg
Bayern will host high flying Freiburg in this weekends top Bundesliga game. Its 1st versus 3rd, Bayerns lead over Freiburg is only three points highlighting how important a win for both teams in this match is.
Bayern’s start to the season has been solid, scoring an incredible 28 goals in their first ten games, Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowski scoring 18 between them. Bayern also had a convincing win in their UCL match beating Benfica 5-2 in the midweek game, again Lewandowski bagging a hat-trick.
SC Freiburg will head to the Allianz Arena without a loss in their last 5 matches. Confidence is high, a famous win could see Freiburg level on points at the top. With odds as high 14/1 (15.00) for a Freiburg win with William Hill, an outsiders punt might be worth taking the chance.

Ligue 1: Rennes vs Lyon
The top match in France this weekend sees two teams struggling for consistency in the League. Both teams have 19 points with Rennes ahead on goal difference in 5th position. A good result for either team would see them stay in touch with Nice, Marseille and Lens, however runaway leaders PSG look unstoppable already 31 points to their tally.
The bookies see this as a very even fixture with not much in the betting at all. Lyon are very slight favourites, best odds are 13/8 (2.63) with VBet.
