Midweek mayhem: bet on Wednesday football!

24.06.2020

Most of the major football competitions have returned to action over the past weeks. However, not having been able to play for several months has created a hectic schedule for many teams, and the result is a heavier burden as leagues struggle to finish all games in time for the new seasons to start over the summer! The Premier League, Serie A and La Liga all see midweek football games played on top of those over the weekend. Let’s see if we can make money with smart bets on these games!he

Manchester United – Sheffield United (Premier League, 7 p.m.)

Manchester United is still recovering from a few tough seasons, but seems well enough on its way to the top again. The Red Devils currently occupy a fifth place with 46 points. If they manage to hold on to it, they have a very decent shot at playing Europa League next season. Champions League participation isn’t off the table either, but Manchester United’s control over that is limited…

Sheffield United will cherish fond memories of its first Premier League season in over a decade. The Blades find themselves in a well-deserved seventh place. With 44 points, they could potentially make it to a fifth place that would allow them to play the Europa League. Winning against Manchester United is a must to make that happen, as Wolverhampton is still in the running for that same spot too…

Atalanta – SS Lazio (Serie A, 9.45 p.m.)

By beating Sassuolo 4-1, Atalanta has added another 4 goals to its incredible total goal tally. The Bergamo outfit currently holds 51 points, and that’s neither enough to win nor lose the fourth spot. The highly competitive team, which can already taste Champions League participation, will stop at nothing to secure what has become its rightful place in modern Italian football.

Atalanta doesn’t has the easiest opposition in the Serie A – far from it. SS Lazio is currently second after leader Juventus, and with 62 points, it’s out of reach for even the number three, Inter Milan. Regardless of the result here, neither teams place will change, but a win for Lazio could see it come within a single point of leader Juventus. Victory for SS Lazio could tear open the title struggle again…

Real Madrid – Mallorca (La Liga, 10 p.m.)

Neither of Spain’s greatest teams – Real Madrid and Barcelona – has a sure claim on the title in La Liga at the moment. Both superpowers share the same rather modest 65 points total, but Real is technically the better team after losing only 3 times as opposed to Barça, which lost 5 times so far. Los Blancos will defend their number one spot against lowly Mallorca this Wednesday.

Mallorca finds itself almost all the way on the other side of the La Liga spectrum. The Balearic outfit has only 26 points and in grave danger of relegation, along with Leganés and Espanyol. The La Liga minnow needs every win it can get to make sure that it can play Spain’s highest division next year. Against the firepower that Real Madrid has to offer, that will be an uphill battle, to use an understatement…
