Lopetegui’s exit odds cut from evens to 1/10 during Barcelona match


Julen Lopetegui’s odds of leaving Real Madrid before Wednesday’s clash with Melilla were drastically slashed by our traders during yesterday’s match with Barcelona.

Having been an even-money shot before kick-off to leave the Bernabeu by Wednesday, the bookies slashed odds to just 1/10, with Antonio Conte now 1/2 to replace him.

Lopetegui has failed to win any of his last five matches in La Liga, with a 1-5 defeat in El Clasico seemingly the final straw.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s no surprise to see Lopetegui’s odds priced so short after yet another embarrassing defeat and as far as fans are concerned, Conte can’t come in soon enough.”

Ladbrokes Latest Betting:

Julen Lopetegui to be sacked before Real Madrid’s match v Melilla – 1/10

Antonio Conte to be next Real Madrid manager – 1/2
