After serving you up a 13/1 winner on the first Sunday of October, news.bwin have three bets worth combining into a better-than-9/1 treble from the latest raft of televised evening European fixtures:
AC Milan are on one of their most promising runs in years right now, taking ten points from their last four games despite facing top-eight finishers Lazio, Fiorentina and Sassuolo in that stretch, but they are still behind Chievo, who have beaten Inter and Sassuolo and held Lazio in an exceptional start.
Defensive strength has been key to the recent success of both, which is why opposing both teams to score was a profitable path in nine of the Flying Donkeys’ past 12 matches and four of the Rossoneri’s last five.
It also won punters money in each of the previous seven showdowns between the pair, while the most recent three in Verona finished 0-0 and the two before that were 1-0 to the visitors.
Metz to draw or win away to Marseille @ 37/20
Marseille are clear 21/50 favourites to defeat Ligue 1 newcomers Metz, but it is hard to make sense of why. They are four points worse off than their guests having won a mere two of their opening eight encounters, while they prevailed in a dismally bad three of their last 20 home league contests.
Admittedly, Metz were utterly schooled last time out 7-0 by Monaco, yet their two prior reverses since promotion were responded to with victories, including a 3-0 loss to Paris St-Germain. They are unbeaten in three away days since that setback, triumphing twice and not conceding a single goal.
Celta Vigo were the stars of the matchday before the international break, laying out champions Barcelona 4-3 for what was their fourth win in a row across all competitions.
However, they remain in mid-table regardless of a result like that and the reason is clear: their road form isn’t formidable enough, with their last five La Liga ventures outside of Balaidos earning them just four points, with three defeats suffered.
Villarreal are more accustomed to delivering at all venues, even after a summer marred by more upheaval than they would have liked. They still haven’t lost seven weeks into the domestic campaign and have won three on the spin as hosts in all competitions.
