This weekend, Europe’s top teams will be battling it out for three points in some crucial matches including the Manchester and Madrid derby games. Here we look at some of the major games taking place across various leagues.
Premier League: Manchester United v Manchester City
The Manchester derby takes place at Old Trafford on Saturday, December 12. Both teams are a point apart, with united in 6th position on 19 points and City sitting 7th with 18 points. Man City have already secured a spot in the Champions League group of 16, However, Man U will have to battle RB Leipzig this week to have a chance to continue in the competition. The Red Devils have not had the best start this season due to multiple injuries but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should have a fully fit squad to choose from.
City have an injury concern for Sergio Aguero, who missed a tie with Fulham last week. However, Kyle Walker, Eric Garcia and Bernardo Silva are likely to feature. The bookmakers clearly fancy Guardiola’s men to take all three points and paint Manchester blue.
This is the game of the weekend and a ticket for either team to rise up the rankings. 888 have an exclusive enhanced odds offer for their new clients. They can get odds of 10/3 for a United win and 10/13 for a City win. Keep an eye out for more exclusive bonuses and offers around this game.
La Liga: Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid
Another massive derby taking place this weekend sees the La Liga League leaders, Atletico Madrid travelling to Santiago Bernabeu Stadium to meet rivals and neighbours Real Madrid. Atletico are topping the league with 26 points and winning all of their previous five matches. Six points behind in 4th position are Real Madrid who have had a mixed bag this season with several defeats and draws that have seen them move down the table.
Zidane is under increasing pressure and will be hoping to take the win and close the gap on their in form neighbours. Atletico meanwhile, will have Joao Felix and Luis Suarez available to play, they have a combined 10 goals between them. With home advantage, the betting markets are slightly favouring a win for Real.
Serie A: AC Milan v Parma
The Serie A leaders, AC Milan, will be hosting Parma at the San Siro on Sunday. Milan has had a great start to the season, gathering 26 points in 10 games and maintain 5 points clear of second place. Unfortunately, Parma are stuck in 16th position, having only won one of the last five matches and earned just ten points in this season’s campaign.
AC Milan striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who loves scoring against Parma is pushing to return before the match to try and continue his 10 goal-scoring spree. It will be a tough game for the visitors, the bookmakers have them as rank outsiders to take any points.

Bundesliga: Union Berlin v Bayern
Bundesliga leaders, Bayern will be travelling An der AltenForsterei to meet the sixth-placed Union Berlin this Saturday. The table-toppers are under pressure from Leverkusen and RB Leipzig who are just one point and two points below them. Bayern have drawn two of there last five matches which has slowed down their magnificent start to the season.
On the other hand, Union Berlin are in fine form, only losing one game and drawing another in the last five matches. They will certainly need to overturn the odds to get a result out of this match as the bookies have Bayern as absolute favourites.
Ligue 1: PSG v Lyon
Lyon lies just two points behind the league’s leaders, PSG when the two will be meeting at Parc des Princes in what will be a very tight game on Saturday. Both teams will be looking to finish the game as league leaders going into the festive period. While PSG are favourites, Lyon have been in great shape in the recent past winning the last four of the five matches in a row. On the other hand, PSG hit a poor patch of form recovering with a fine win away at Montpellier last week.
