Enhanced multiple hunters will greet the Europa League’s return as if it were a Wether’s Original-bearing grandchild at their door and they their frail, old nanna as the competition’s comeback has prompted bwin to serve up a whole host of boosted bets this Thursday.
The pick of tonight’s Combi+ punts is a fourfold that foresees victories for home quartet Club Brugge, Wolfsburg, Dinamo Kiev and Sevilla.
Should our four heroes fell their respective foes Dnipro, Napoli, Fiorentina and Zenit those on board will pocket a 15/1 payday and we’ve got a boatload of factors detailing why they’re going to do the business.
Club Brugge to beat Dnipro @ evens
The Belgian outfit may be the least reputable of those remaining in the Europa League’s last eight, but they’re by no means the weakest.
Under the guidance of lauded coach Michel Preud’homme, the Pro-League table toppers recently saw an eight-match winning run snapped, but they remain imperious at home.
No opponent has plundered the spoils from their Jay Breydel Stadium stronghold, with each of the last six visitors leaving empty-handed.
They’ve won all bar three of their 14 matches in this competition including qualifiers and must be backed against inconsistent travellers Dnipro, who have failed to win five of eight road games ahead of this one.
Wolfsburg to beat Napoli @ 4/5
None of Die Wolfe’s Bundesliga brethren can boast an unbeaten record on the homestead this season.
They’ve bested each of the previous nine sides to step through the gates of the Volkswagen Arena.
With four wins from five in the Europa League home and away, they’re too reliable to be overlooked.
Rafa Benitez’s men can’t lay claim to such form, having have had just two victories to celebrate in ten.
Dinamo Kiev to beat Fiorentina @ 7/5
The longest price in this fourfold doubles up as the most likely to land, with the Ukrainian capital club unbeaten all season at home across every competition they’ve entered.
In the previous round they scored five against Everton – the only team able to beat Wolfsburg away this season – which took their tally to five straight home wins in the Europa League.
Fiorentina were spanked 3-0 at Napoli last time out and suffered defeat by the same margin when tackling Juventus in the game prior.
These confidence-sapping losses will see Vincenzo Montella’s men eased into Dinamo’s opponent grinder.
Sevilla to beat Zenit @ 31/50
Unai Emery’s Rojiblancos haven’t lost since an injury-time Real Sociedad penalty did for them in mid-February and in their own backyard they’re a force to be feared.
Only Villarreal and Barcelona can claim to have visited the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and rustled the net of the previous seven sides to have attempted, while they’ve won every Europa League match at this venue.
Zenit, by contrast, have lost three of their last four continental fixtures on the road.
