European football tips: Five predictions for Saturday

View other betting options

We’ve picked out five European football tips for Saturday and will be rewarded with an accumulator at odds of just under 15/2 if all our predictions come in.

Our midweek Champions League acca came in at 9/1 but don’t fret if one of the legs lets you down because bwin’s five-team acca insurance ensures we refund minimum £5 stakes as a Free Bet up to £25 when a five-fold is placed on the same day and a single selection goes astray.

Also, don’t forget that any bets of £5 or more on trebles and upwards with odds of at least 4/1 count towards bwin’s great Acca Madness promotion for August, with Free Bets up for grabs!

Napoli to win at Verona @ 21/50

Napoli finished strongly when third in Serie A last term and start the new domestic campaign in good spirits following Wednesday night’s 2-0 Champions League triumph over Nice. Dries Mertens opened the scoring in midweek after netting 28 times in this competition last season. Verona are back in the top flight after just scraping promotion and may need time to find their feet.

Sevilla to beat Espanyol @ 31/50

Sevilla were another of our midweek European winners as they edged out Istanbul Basaksehir 2-1 in Turkey, beginning Toto Berizzo’s reign with an assured display, despite tough weather conditions. The hosts not only control possession well, they also seek to challenge their opponents at every opportunity and are rated a team to follow in LaLiga this term.

Hoffenheim to beat Werder Bremen @ 4/5

Hoffenheim must put a 2-1 Champions League loss to Liverpool behind them but they certainly impressed going forward against the Reds. Julian Nagelsmann’s side were unbeaten at home in the Bundesliga last season and can start the new campaign off in good fashion. Hoffenheim won 5-3 away to Werder Bremen in May after leading 3-0 at half-time.

Lyon to beat Bordeaux @ 57/100

Despite losing Alexandre Lacazette, Lyon have made a confident start to the new Ligue 1 season, hammering Strasbourg 4-0 at home and then surviving a late rally to prevail 2-1 at Rennes, with former Manchester United winger Memphis Depay on the scoresheet in that second success. Bordeaux are also in solid form with four points from two games but may just lack their hosts’ attacking flair.

AZ Alkmaar to beat Den Haag @ 3/10

AZ Alkmaar finished five places and 11 points above Den Haag in the Dutch Eredivisie last season, doing the double over this weekend’s opponents, including a 4-0 triumph at AFAS Stadion in March. There was plenty to like about the way John van den Brom’s side played in an opening 3-2 loss at PSV Eindhoven and another solid campaign looks on the cards.
