The black and gold boys at bwin.com have come up with a brand new smorgasbord of Europa League Combi+ accas for your punting perusal, but we suggest heading straight for the 8/1, boosted from under 13/2, about Red Bull Salzburg, Dinamo Zagreb and Zurich all winning tonight.
Such a treble looks eminently foreseeable and would leave one of Britain’s biggest outfits fearing for their future in the competition.
Red Bull Salzburg to beat Celtic
Hoops coach Ronny Deila has steadied the Parkhead ship after leading his new charges to just five wins in his first 13 matches in charge, with ten victories in 12 fixtures since, but Celtic haven’t beaten a side of Salzburg’s calibre since the Norwegian got the job.
Die Rotten Bullen top Europa League Group D with ten points and have won four of their last six on the road in all competitions, with Spanish striker Jonathan Soriano grabbing five of his 22 Salzburg goals so far this term (yes, you read that right) during those road trips.
On current form, they should have too much firepower for a Celtic side far from dominant in the Scottish Premiership.
Dinamo Zagreb to beat Astra Giurgiu
Celtic losing and Zagreb winning is Deila’s nightmare Europa League scenario, but such a turn of events looks very much on the cards.
The Croatian side’s only away losses so far this year came against the Scottish and Austrian champions, with hosts banished in eight of their 13 all-competition road fixtures in 2014/15.
Astra, on the other hand, have managed one win in their last nine outings all told, losing three of their four Group D fixtures, so this selection looks safe.
Zurich to beat Apollon Limassol
The Swiss side are by some way the shortest-priced pick in this Combi+ acca and with good reason, as the Cypriot visitors have suffered 4-0 and 5-0 reverses in their previous pair of Group D away matches at Villarreal and Borussia Monchengladbach.
Zurich beat the aforementioned Spaniards 3-2 last time out in this competition, making this selection a no-brainer.
