UEFA Soccer Clubs Friendly Matches to Bet On: El Clasico; Real Madrid v Barcelona Top Weekend Game

With a winter World Cup this year, the European club season is getting started a little earlier than usual. In fact, this weekend is shaping up to be a busy one for big clubs playing friendly matches to help them prepare for the upcoming season. Even if these games don’t count for much, they should still be interesting from a fan perspective. Let’s take a closer look at some of the club friendly matches on tap this week so you can bet against their International Friendlies Odds.

European Soccer Clubs Friendly Games Betting Preview for the Weekend

RB Leipzig vs Liverpool

The fun gets started on Thursday when Jurgen Klopp takes his Liverpool side to his native Germany to face RB Leipzig. The Red Bulls are Champions League bound after finishing fourth in the Bundesliga. They also beat another English team in Southampton last weekend, so they should be a good test for Liverpool. The Reds might be dwelling a little on their Champions League final loss to Real Madrid. They also suffered a 4-0 defeat to Manchester United earlier this month, so Klopp would love a win over a quality opponent, even in a friendly.

Manchester United vs Aston Villa

This is a time of transition for Manchester United with a new manager and several familiar faces like Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic leaving the club. However, the Red Devils created a little bit of optimism with a 4-0 friendly win over Liverpool earlier this month. Even more than the average manager, Erik ten Hag could use positive results during the preseason. Against another English club that wasn’t far from the relegation zone last season, United needs to win this game and win convincingly.

Bayern Munich vs Manchester City

These should be two of the most fascinating teams in Europe to watch this season, so even for a preseason friendly, excitement will be high, especially with the game being played at Lambeau Field. As usual, Man City has a new signing to show off and incorporate into their system in Norwegian striker Earling Haaland. On the other side, Munich will have to use their preseason friendly matches to adjust to life without Robert Lewandowski, who has left for Barcelona. Of course, the Bavarian side still has plenty of attacking talent and added former Liverpool talisman Sadio Mane over the summer.

Arsenal vs Chelsea

There is nothing friendly about any game involving these two London rivals. Even with the game being played in Orlando, the intensity should be high. After a few down seasons and coming up just short of Champions League last season, the Gunners will still feel like the little brother in this rivalry and have something to prove. Arsenal’s other preseason friendly matches have gone well for them, but facing Chelsea is a different animal. The Blues have added help at both ends of the field with Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly, so they are entering another season with high hopes.

Real Madrid vs Barcelona

Las Vegas will be the site of a preseason edition of El Clasico between these two Spanish giants. When these teams met last spring, Barcelona pulled off the 4-0 win, although they will still feel like they have something to prove after a disappointing campaign last season. This will also be a chance for Barca to show off new signing Robert Lewandowski, who could hold the key to their season.
