The final matchday of the Europa League group stage has rolled around with all three British representatives already qualified for knockout rounds.
Everton are already destined for top billing in Group H, while Spurs and Celtic are guaranteed at least sectional silver medals.
Here at news.bwin.com/en/, watered down motivation has long been a favoured punting pointer so this seemed like the ideal occasion to combine those opposing the trio in a double-chance treble that pays out north of 3/1.
Need a little more persuading? Read on…
FC Krasnodar double chance v Everton @ 39/50
Even if the Toffees had something other than pride to play for, they could have been expected to struggle without midfielder James McCarthy, who has a hamstring injury.
Roberto Martinez’s men have yet to win in seven games without the Irishman in the starting line-up this season.
What’s more, having already qualified the temptation for the Spaniard to rest key players may be too great to resist.
Against a side that outplayed Everton for long periods of time and really should have beaten them in Russia that combination of factors will be enough to deny the hosts victory.
Besiktas double chance v Tottenham @ 3/10
There was precious little between the adversaries at White Hart Lane and the Lilywhites have been less competitive on the road than at home in Europe this term.
AEL Limassol and Asteras Tripolis were smashed 3-0 and 5-1 in north London, but Spurs could only sneak past them with a brace of 2-1 wins in the away legs of those fixtures.
Slaven Bilic’s hosts are more than good enough to continue that trend of diminishing returns beyond Tottenham’s backyard.
They’ve lost just once at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium all season and denied Arsenal the win when the Gunners came to town in Champions League qualifying.
Dinamo Zagreb double chance v Celtic @ 3/10
Like Spurs the Bhoys are guaranteed qualification, but unlike their fellow Brits they can’t improve their lot with points in Croatia, with Red Bull Salzburg beyond catching at the Group D pinnacle.
Such a lack of incentive is taken to erode the 1-0 margin of superiority the Glaswegians eked out on home turf.
While the aforementioned Austrians spanked them 5-1 at Stadion Maksimir, Dinamo are capable of fireworks on home soil (beating Lyon-conquerors Astra Giurgiu by the same scoreline) and they can deny Celtic, without a win in four on their European travels, three points.
