After the first round of group matches mid-week the big leagues are back in action.
Chelsea and Junventus won their respective leagues last season and have gotten off to very bad starts this season. Manchester City has started the season on fire and they may be tested this weekend facing a West Ham squad that has won their last two matches.
Dortmund and Inter Milan are in first place in Italy and Germany respectively, and while Inter faces a surprising Chevio club Dortmund faces a Bayer Leverkusen side that has struggled out of the gates.
Chelsea vs. Arsenal
Can the Blues get back on track facing an in-form Gunners squad?
Chelsea won the EPL last season, but after five matches they are in 17th place with only one win. Yeah, they won their recent Champions League match easily, but while at home they face a Arsenal squad that is in fourth place in the league table and has won two straight matches and three of their last four. The Blues’ defense has struggled this season conceding 12 goals in five league matches.
Bet365 has Chelsea as the home betting favorite posted at +130 with Arsenal at +200 and a draw line at +240.
Manchester City vs. West Ham
Manchester City looks to keep their perfect record intact facing surprising West Ham.
To say City’s defense has been impressive would be an understatement, as they have yet to concede a goal in five league matches. They are already four points clear of second place Leicester in EPL play and they are at home this weekend. West Ham is in fifth place in the league table and they have won their last two matches including beating Liverpool on the road.
City is the huge favorite at Bet365 at -400 with West Ham at +900 and a draw line at +500.
Dortmund vs. Bayer Leverkusen
Dortmund has been impressive on the young season while Leverkusen has not.
Leverkusen got off to a great start to the Bundesliga season with two straight wins, but they have lost their last two matches. No shock that Bayern Munich leads the league table, but what is a shock is that Dortmund is tied with them with 12 points after four matches. Their offense has scored the most goals in the league while Leverkusen has only scored three goals in four matches.
Dortmund is at -163 at Bet365 with Leverkusen at +400 and a draw line at +300.
Chevio vs. Inter Milan
The two top teams in Serie A face off this weekend.
Inter won the big derby match facing AC Milan last week and they are in first place in the Serie A table two points clear of Chevio. After a less than impressive loss to start the league season Chevio was at home in their second match beating Lazio 4-0 and then they were on the road in their last one playing to a 1-1 draw against Juventus. In three league matches Inter has only scored three goals, but they have only conceded one.
At Bet365 Inter Milan is the road betting favorite with posted odds of +110 with Chevio at +250 and a draw line at +230.
Genoa vs. Juventus
What happened to Juve?
Which Juventus squad will show up in this match? The one that won on the road facing Manchester City in their most recent match, in the Champions League, or the one that is winless in three Serie A matches? Genoa has won their only matches on the young season at home beating Verona 2-0.
Bet365 has Juventus as the road betting favorite at -125 with Genoa at +375 and a draw line at +240.
