Manchester Derby Lights Up a Stellar Weekend

man city v manu

Following the slight lull of international week, the sporting calendar is back in full swing this coming weekend with a cracking programme of action in store. The Premier League returns with a bang with an intriguing full list of fixtures, the NFL comes to London, whilst over in France we have what many believe to be the greatest flat horse race on the planet. Here we take a closer look at what’s in store, and highlight a couple of the best new player offers for those looking to enhance the already exciting action.

Saturday October 01 – Monday October 03 – Football: Derby Triple-header in the Premier League

It’s derby weekend in the Premier League as the top flight springs back into action following the brief international break. First stop North London for the Saturday 12:30 pm kick-off, as league leaders Arsenal play host to bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur. The Gunners may top the table, but Spurs are one of only two unbeaten sides in the league, and will move top themselves should they pick up the three points in this one. A huge test of the credentials of both sides, this looks set to be as closely fought as ever. New betting site Midnite make Mikel Arteta’s men favourites at 49/50, with Spurs available to back at 12/5 with the same firm. Attention turns to action at the other end of the table on Saturday evening, as West Ham United welcome Wolves to the London Stadium in a crucial clash for both sides.

It’s back to the derby games on Sunday afternoon, and it’s a big one as defending champions Manchester City play host to Manchester United. No doubt City have been the more impressive of the two sides thus far, but the Red Devils have been improving of late and, as ever, will be fully motivated for this one. Pep Guardiola’s side are hot favourites to show their class at just 8/25 with Midnite, whilst those who fancy a shock result can back the Old Trafford club at 31/5. Leeds take on Aston Villa in the second of the Super Sunday games, and this week the action extends into Monday evening with the East Midland Derby from the King Power Stadium, as rock-bottom Leicester City take on second-bottom Nottingham Forest.

Sunday October 02 - NFL: Vikings Takeover Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

No home game for Spurs this week, but things certainly won’t be quiet at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as this Sunday sees the first of the seasons NFL London games. The New Orleans Saints are the nominal hosts for this one, with the Minnesota Vikings providing the opposition in a real treat for UK Gridiron fans.

The Vikings have made the stronger start to the season with wins over the Packers and Lions at the U.S Bank Stadium, but did taste defeat in their only game on the road so far when being brushed aside by the Philadelphia Eagles. The Saints started with a thrilling win in Atlanta, but have since lost to both the Buccaneers and Panthers and will be looking to bounce back here. Having shipped over 20 points in all three games to date, New Orleans will no doubt be looking to tighten up on the defensive side of the game. Hightbet make Minnesota pretty strong favourites at 17/25, with the Saints priced at 29/25.

Sunday October 02 – Racing: Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe

For fans of the classiest flat horses on the planet, this Sunday is one of the first dates pencilled into the diary, as the Paris track of Longchamp plays host to the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. 1m4f is the trip for this £4.2million race which once again looks to have attracted an international cast of superstars.

Luxembourg goes for Aidan O’Brien and Ireland and currently heads the betting on the back of his success in the Irish Champion Stakes, whilst Sir Mark Prescott’s grey mare, Alpinista, is rated the best of a six-pronged British attack. Defending champion Torquator Tasso flies the flag for Germany, Titleholder goes for Japan, and even the less heralded racing nation of Poland is represented by the rank outsider, Le Destrier. And of course, don’t forget the home team, with Vadeni, and Onesto amongst the most likely to keep the prize on French soil. Whoever comes out on top, this looks set to be a thriller.
