Online betting sites in the UK, Europe and across the world have been inundated with bettors placing wagers as the English Premier League (EPL) returns to action behind closed doors following the temporary suspension due to Covid-19 pandemic.
Due to the current and ongoing Coronavirus crisis, betting premises around the globe are still largely closed. However, that did not stop sports betting enthusiasts flocking to online sportsbook sites in their thousands to place a bet on the first two football matches since the league suspension: Aston Villa Vs Sheffield United and Manchester City Vs Arsenal.
The games ended in a goalless 0-0 draw at Villa Park, but not without its VAR controversy, and a 3-0 victory to Man City at the Etihad Stadium, a clash that witnessed the use of crowd noises played around the stadium and Arsenal’s David Luiz shown the red card.
Football bets continue to be placed on the upcoming EPL fixtures, dubbed the best top flight football league in the world: Norwich City Vs Southampton and Tottenham Vs Manchester United in 2 days time.
In addition, the week’s restart to football in England will see league leaders Liverpool take on Merseyside rivals Everton and Leicester City and Chelsea in action against Watford and Aston Villa respectively.
In addition to the day of sport being a momentous occasion in English football, the night also witnessed Premier League players taking the knee in support of the Black Lives Matter campaign.
