European Leagues Top Games & Updates | October 25th Edition

2021-2022 UEFA European Soccer Season 

  • When: August, 2021 – May, 2022 

Serie A

  • Roma ends Napoli’s win streak by forcing a draw, Juve snatches defeat from Inter’s jaws

Roma didn’t beat Napoli, but they did end the Serie A leader’s winning streak. Up until the 0-0 draw, Napoli had won 8 straight Serie A matches.

Although early, Napoli and AC Milan looked poised to run away with the league title. But AS Roma had other ideas. Again, Roma didn’t win. They did show they will remain a contender throughout the season.

Juventus climbed to within 10 points of Napoli and AC Milan. Juve had lost their first couple of Serie A games. Since then, they’ve gelled. 

On Sunday, Juventus required a penalty goal from Paulo Dybala to secure the 1-1 draw. Inter heads into Matchday 10 with 18 points. Juve has 15.  

Atalanta -114 vs Lazio +260 – Serie A Matchday 10

  • When: Saturday, Oct. 30

Both teams head into Matchday 10 showing similar form. Both have won a single match, drawn twice, and lost twice in their last five. 

Atalanta is the home squad and because of that, they are the chalk. But Lazio beat Atalanta 3-1 in the last head-to-head. Granted, a lot of months have passed since the last face-off. Still, the odds make Ciro Immobile and his mates the play. 

Soccer Pick: Lazio 

Bundesliga

  • Bellingham steps up after Haaland’s injury

Playing in place of injured star Erling Haaland, Jude Bellingham stepped it up big time to help Dortmund to a 3-1 victory over Arminia Bielefeld. Granted, Borussia didn’t play one of the best of the best in the Bundesliga.

But Bellingham showed that Dortmund might be okay with Haaland sidelined due to a hip injury. Erling will be out for multiple weeks. So it was important for Bellingham to prove he could have a good match and work with Borussia’s other stars.

Dortmund is a point behind Bayern on the German League Standings. If Bellingham continues to shine, Borussia could maintain second-place status and then make a run for the title once Haaland returns. 

Bayer Leverkusen -111 vs Vfl Wolfsburg +270 – Bundesliga Matchday 10

  • When: Saturday, Oct. 30

Wolfsburg has lost four straight and Leverkusen shows two draws and a loss in their last three making this one of the most important Bundesliga matches of the week. 

Wolfsburg started the season hot. They’ve fallen to ninth place on the Bundesliga Standings. It’s difficult to see Wolfsburg doing enough to take this. 

Salzburg upset Wolfsburg in their last Champions League match. Also, the 0-2 loss to Freiburg on Oct. 23 had to hurt. At -111, Leverkusen is an overlay.   

Soccer Pick: Leverkusen  

Spanish La Liga

  • Real beats Barca in the Clasico

Barcelona skipper Ronald Koeman faced an angry mob after a 2-1 loss Barca suffered to Real Madrid in the El Clasico. Things got scary as Koeman left Camp Nou.

Angry Barcelona fans slapped his car and almost prevented him from leaving the stadium. Koeman escaped, but the fallout could have major reverberations.

No manager or coach should ever have to deal with angry fans. Also, what do the Barcelona faithful expect? The team is in dire straits financially. That’s not Koeman’s fault. 

In any case, Real Madrid climbed to within a point of the league lead while Barcelona remained 6 points behind 21-point Sociedad and 20-point Real.   

Sevilla -169 vs. Osasuna +460 – La Liga Matchday 11

  • When: Saturday, Oct. 30

Heading into Matchday 11, Sevilla has 20 points, a single point behind Sociedad. Osasuna has 18 points, 3 points behind the Primera Division leader. 

Sevilla won the last head-to-head 2-0 and should offer chalk odds because this happens on their pitch. But the odds on Osasuna make them an overlay. The road team can surprise at massive odds. 

Soccer Pick: Osasuna  

English Premier League

  • Liverpool dominates Man U. Are Solsjkaer’s days numbered?

It got so bad for the Red Devils in the 0-5 loss to Liverpool that Pool’s fans chanted, “Ole must stay!” towards the end of the defeat. 

Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer is Manchester United’s manager and coach. Some believe the loss to the Reds is a sign ownership doesn’t care whether Solsjkaer brings an EPL title to United or not.

After all, Manchester U has only 14 points and is 8 points behind league leader Chelsea, another bitter rival, 7 points behind Liverpool, and 6 points behind Man City.

If ownership cared about winning, why is Solsjkaer on the sidelines? But before dumping on Man United’s owners, we can’t forget that the Red Devils transferred Jadon Sancho and Ronaldo.

Why pay so much money to a couple of the top stars in European soccer if you don’t plan on winning matches? Ownership will dump Solsjkaer if the losses mount and players like Sancho, Ronaldo, and Harry McGuire say something.

Tottenham Hotspur +180 vs Man United +133 – Premier League Matchweek 10

  • When: Saturday, Oct. 30

Neither the Hotspur nor the Red Devils have impressed. On paper, Man United should have no trouble winning this, but this happens on Tottenham’s pitch.

On April 11, United dusted Tottenham 3-1. The Hotspur have lost 2 straight, including an unforgivable 1-0 defeat to Vitesse, the sixth best team in the Dutch Eredivisie.

Man U has no excuses. If the Red Devils have any heart at all, they’ll beat the Hotspur. 

Soccer Pick: Manchester United
