Both Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich have a seven-points advantage at the top of La Liga and the Bundesliga. That’s the biggest advantage over the top five European soccer leagues (English Premier League, Italian Serie A, La Liga, Bundesliga and Ligue 1).
Let’s take a look at what has happened recently and how the sports betting odds to win it all have changed.
Premier League (England)
- Reigning champions: Liverpool
- Current First Place: Manchester United
Manchester United (40 points) haven’t lost in their last five English Premier League games, and they also eliminated Liverpool from the FA Cup (3-2) last weekend. Apparently, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has found the formula to motivate their players and get the best from everybody, including Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani.
Nevertheless, Manchester City are just two points away, but Pep Guardiola’s team have played one game less than Manchester United.
Leicester City have won their last three games in a row and they come in third place with 38 points, while surprisingly enough, Liverpool haven’t won in their last five games and they are in fourth place with 34 points.
After spending $300 million in new assets, Chelsea are in ninth place with just 29 points, which is why the “Blues” fired manager Frank Lampard.
To Be Relegated
Sheffield United, Albion and Fulham remain in the relegation zone. Fulham haven’t won in their last five games while Albion and Sheffield United have won just one of their last five games. Albion have allowed 43 goals (most in the league).
Brighton have won just one of their last five games, and they are just five points away from the relegation zone.
Next Best Games
Midweek, Chelsea will play host to Wolverhampton in their first game without Frank Lampard as manager.
Manchester United will play host to Sheffield United and Everton will do the same against Leicester City.
