It’s time for another special aspect of the week, called “The Weekend.” Asides from signaling the end of the work week – for some – and the beginning of the partying and resting, it’s also a period filled with a lot of sporting events.
As you’re getting ready to enjoy all of the sporting action this week, here are some games to bet on this weekend and some stats to help you earn some extra cash this weekend.
AS Roma vs. AC Milan
In the past three years, these two sides have met six times, with AC Milan winning just once during the period and AS Roma winning all but one of the remaining fixtures.
Roma, currently third on the log, will be looking to close the gap between themselves, Juventus and Napoli at the top of the league. AC Milan, on the other hand, has won 5 of their last 6 Serie A matches but remains seventh on the log.
Manchester United vs. Chelsea
It is one of the most anticipated games in the Premier League this season. And the reason is not far-fetched. Asides the rivalry between both sides, there’s bad blood between Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte. Remember when both managers had a clash of words?
Well, all that and more is what makes this one a game to look out for. In their last six meetings, Man. United has won only one game, with Chelsea winning three times and the rest ending in draws.
Manchester City vs. Arsenal
The first trophy of the football season is up for grabs on Sunday when Arsenal and Manchester City go head-to-head in the EFL Cup final.
Anytime these two sides have met in recent times, it has always ended up being a festival of goals. The last six meetings between both sides had each game featuring at least over 2,5 goals. Although City lost to Wigan in their last game and Arsenal lost to the Swedish outfit in their Europa League game, this one will be different.
Sevilla vs. Atletico Madrid
Atletico Madrid is the closest team to Barcelona on the La Liga table. They’re second on the log and will be looking forward to remaining there to take advantage of any Barca slip up. They are undefeated in 22 of their last 23 away matches and will be looking to make it 23 out of 24.
After their performance against Manchester United, Sevilla, playing in front of their home fans, will be looking forward to climbing up the table from the fifth spot. A point to note is they have avoided a home defeat in 23 of their last 24 home games in the La Liga.
Bayer Leverkusen vs. Schalke 04
Here’s another derby in Germany. To make things even more interesting, it is fourth-placed Bayer Leverkusen versus sixth-placed Schalke 04. And both teams are separated on the German Bundesliga table by just one point!
In the past six meetings between both sides, the side playing away from home has not tasted defeat. In other words, the side playing at home has always finished the game with either a draw (two times in the last six meetings) or a defeat (four times in the last six meetings).
