Top 5 European Football League’s Betting Action 07-08th December 2019 Including the Manchester Derby

All the top European leagues are full of activity as they begin the quite tight December fixtures. All teams have a lot more games to play, and it will be interesting to watch how the table standings keep changing after every few days.

Premier League: Manchester City v Manchester United

A match between Man City and Man Utd is always among the most anticipated Manchester derbies. Man City has won four of their previous six derbies while Man United has won one and drawn in one match. The teams previously met in the Premier League in April 2019, and the game ended with a 2-0 win for Manchester City. Man City have to win this game if they are still on the race for the top EPL club while Man United will be fighting to enter the top 5 table standings list.

The awaited Manchester derby will kick off on Saturday at the Etihad Stadium. Guardiola’s troop is missing top players like Sergio Aguero, Aymeric Laporte, and Leroy Sane, who are out due to injuries. Their impact cannot be underestimated, given that they are facing an equally tough team. The Man United squad is still missing top players like Paul Pogba, Marcos Rojo, Diogo Dalot, Eric Bailly, and Tim Fosu-Mensah. The match will be interesting to watch as both teams fight for the three crucial points.

La Liga: Real Madrid v RCD Espanyol

Real Madrid will be focusing on lengthening their winning run and regaining the top position when they host Espanyol at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday. Zinedine Zidane’s troop has improved tremendously of late, and they are expected to play hard against Espanyol to increase their goal difference.

Eden Hazard has an injury and will most likely be out when they face Espanyol, but they still have Karim Benzema, who has been a top scorer this season. Espanyol is currently on a losing spree at the bottom two of the table, and given that Real Madrid will be at home, it is going to be a tough game for Espanyol.

Serie A: SS Lazio v Juventus

All attention will be on Stadio Olimpico as SS Lazio host Juventus in a much anticipated Saturday match. Lazio scored three goals against Udinese previously to enter position three on the table. Ciro Immobile, who has scored a total of 17 goals for Lazio this season, is likely to give the Juventus defence a hard time.

Juventus’s previous game ended in a draw, placing them on the second place in the table standings. They are looking forward to retaining their top position, but given Lazio’s impressive home record, it is hard to predict the winner.

Bundesliga: Borussia Monchengladbach v Bayern Munich

Borussia Monchengladbach will host Bayern Munich at their Borussia-Park on Saturday. Borrusia M’gladbach is currently at the top of the table, and they will be looking to retain the standings position when they face Bayern.

Breel-Donald Embolo is the man to watch in the home team after his previous two goals, which led to a 4-2 win against Freiburg. Bayern Munich previously suffered a 2-1 loss against Bayer Leverkusen hence dropping to the fourth position on the table. Bayern is experiencing some pressure as they travel to North Rhine-Westphalia, given that Borussia M’gladbach is a hard team to beat at home.

Ligue 1: Montpellier v PSG

Montpellier will host PSG at Stade De La Mosson on Saturday. PSG is currently at the top of the table, and the game against Montepellier is crucial in ensuring they win the Ligue 1. Montpellier is sixth on the table standings, and it will be fighting to get the three points and secure a position among the top five slots. PSG is a star-studded team, and beating them is always such an uphill task. As always, Kylian Mbappe is a man to watch in the away team.
