Man City lead our European title-winning accumulator

| 17.10.2012

Only seven games into the new season, Barcelona find themselves eight points clear of main title rivals and current La Liga champions Real Madrid, having already met them this season.

Barca are 1/5 to regain the Spanish title this term, and would appear shoo-ins to do so, with Lionel Messi in inspirational form as ever.

The Argentinian forward has eight goals in seven games so far this season, and he looks set to lead another Catalan title charge.

Even odds-on at 1/5, Tito Vilanova’s side look worthwhile bets for the La Liga crown at this early stage of the season.

Elsewhere in Europe, the Italian top flight is shaping up in intriguing fashion, with Juventus kicking off their Serie A defence in impressive fashion.

After their title success of last year, the Turin outfit are 1/2 favourites to retain their title, an appealing price considering they have taken 19 points from seven games so far.

Second-favourites Napoli, 10/3 for the title, have thus far matched Juve’s record, but it should be noted that the Naples-based side haven’t won Serie A since 1990.

Thus, Antonio Conte’s experienced squad, within a club possessing 28 Italian national titles, look good for title retention during this campaign.

And Ligue 1 also provides a tempting betting opportunity for punters, with moneybags PSG 1/4 favourites for the French title, as Carlo Ancelotti’s men currently stalk league leaders Marseille.

Undoubtedly, a side featuring the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic certainly has the quality to claim their first league crown in nine years, and they should prove popular with punters.

To side with PSG looks the wisest option, but those fancying current Ligue 1 leaders Marseille can take 6/1 odds regarding Elie Baup’s men.

And looking closer to home, Manchester City remain favourites at 7/5 to keep hold of their Premier League title, despite Chelsea’s blistering start to the campaign.

City have yet to fully get going this term, but remain unbeaten so far, signifying another title push will come to fruition as Citizens improvement coincides with seasonal progression.

A bet on the four aforementioned favourites to win their respective leagues would return at more than 4/1.
