The immense spread of action taking place across the continent this fine Sunday means there’s plenty to keep Premier League lovers entertained either side of Manchester City’s season-shaping clash with Chelsea.
Three of the biggest names in Spain, Italy and Germany are all in action and we’ve combined them in a meaty treble paying out at a shade shy of 14/1, starting with Barcelona, who will carry on their imperious start at Levante’s expense.
Barcelona (-2) to beat Levante @ 13/10
This is, quite frankly, an incredible price given that it would’ve copped in five of the past eight renewals between this pair, including 4-1 and 4-0 wins for Luis Enrique’s men at the Estadi Ciutat de Valencia.
The formbook hushes the arguments of any detractors, with Los Blaugrana yet to concede a goal in their flawless four-game season-starting streak, while the Valencian minnows haven’t troubled a scoreboard operator in three outings.
Inter to keep a clean sheet versus Palermo @ 8/5
Sassuolo were trounced 7-0 in the Nerazzurri’s last Serie A outing, making it two league games and two clean sheets for Walter Mazzarri’s charges.
A trio of Europa League qualifying shut outs adds further claims to any argument surrounding the quality of their defence.
This points to a frustrating day at the coalface for Palermo, who are yet to beat a single goalkeeper this term.
Bayer Leverkusen to beat Wolfsburg @ 6/4
The Wolves haven’t started anywhere near as impressively as their squad laden with World Cup stars should have done, losing one and drawing two of their opening Bundesliga fixtures.
In their defence, that defeat came away at Bayern Munchen, but table-topping Leverkusen are in great knick, so much so that their 1-0 Champions League loss at Monaco in midweek registered as a minor surprise.
They’ve beaten German foes as varied in stature as SV Alemannia and Borussia Dortmund on the road, scoring at least three in five from seven competitive games so far.
