Victories for the four remaining Premier League sides to fulfil their continental obligations this week will see bwin punters profit to the tune of 5/1 courtesy of their Combi+ enhanced multiple.
Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham and Everton must get the better of Maribor, CSKA Moscow, Asteras Tripolis and Lille respectively to land the payday, but a mixture of home advantage and questionable form says each will claim the spoils.
Chelsea to beat Maribor @ 33/100
The Blues’ 6-0 ravaging of the Slovenians two weeks ago highlights the discrepancy in abilities between the pair.
Victory for Jose Mourinho’s men will ensure qualification to the Champions League round of 16 at the earliest possible opportunity so there’s even more incentive for the west Londoners here.
Championship side Wigan are the only team Maribor have beaten in ten tussles with English opponents; they’ve been on the wrong end of the scoreline on seven occasions, five of which were at home.
Manchester City to beat CSKA @ 1/4
It’s Hail Mary time for Manuel Pellegrini’s men after disaster struck in the Russian capital a fortnight ago.
Cruising at 2-0, the Premier League champions contrived to squander their lead and must win at least two, if not more, of their remaining three Group E games if they are to qualify for the last 16.
Fortunately for them, the Army Men have never won in England and City, who toppled this foe 5-2 at this stage last year, should have the attacking gumption to see them off.
Tottenham to beat Asteras @ 39/50
The Greek outfit were flogged for five at White Hart Lane on match day three and are set to sample another loss here.
This match represents the leg of the four-way most likely to prove costly, but solace can be extracted from the fact Spurs are unbeaten in three European road games and won all of their pre-Christmas Europa League away matches without conceding last time around.
Everton to beat Lille @ 4/5
Les Dogues haven’t won on the road since the opening game of the Ligue 1 season and have lost four of their six sojourns since without scoring a goal.
With one triumph in ten in total, they should pose little threat to an improving Everton side.
