With the previous evening’s Champions League action breaking the record for number of strikes in a single night, punters looking to take advantage of bwin’s enhanced multiple offers must be eyeing up the over 2.5-goal trebles.
Seven of the eight encounters to be played on Tuesday saw the net rustle at least three times and, if Wednesday’s play follows suit, those placing their wagers at bwin.com are in for a profitable hump day.
Of the bunch of trebles the firm have compiled, the 19/4 about over 2.5 goals being scored in Atletico Madrid v Malmo, Anderlecht v Arsenal and Bayer Leverkusen v Zenit St Petersburg looks the most likely to reward.
The gulf in quality between La Liga champions Los Colchoneros and their Swedish counterparts is enormous, but this isn’t the only factor in deducing there’ll be a heap of goals scored at the Vicente Calderon.
Malmo have lost their previous three European away matches, shipping at least two every time, which is also true of five of their last six across all competitions.
Atleti come into this one looking to make it four straight victories at base camp, where three of their previous five have crossed the 2.5-goal barrier.
Arsenal’s emergency defence has kept one clean sheet in nine so it’s safe to assume Anderlecht – who’ve scored in 13 of 15 – will find the net when the Gunners pay them a visit.
Arsene Wenger’s men can usually be relied upon for a goal or two, with four of their last six yielding three strikes at least.
Leverkusen are another reliable source of sizeable scorelines.
They followed up a 2-2 draw with Paderborn with a 3-3 bonanza at Stuttgart last time out.
It marked the eighth time in ten that their supporters have witnessed over 2.5 goals plundered.
St Petersburg’s finest have notched at least two themselves in half a dozen of their previous eight sojourns, a run that includes their most recent Champions League road game at Benfica.
