We’ve picked out five top European football bets for a Saturday acca and are hoping to follow up last week’s 13/1 windfall with a pay-out of over 22/1 this time.
Don’t fret if one of the legs lets you down because our five-team acca insurance ensures we refund minimum £5 stakes as a Free Bet up to £25 when a five-fold is placed on the same day and a single selection goes astray.
Monaco to beat Bordeaux @ 1/2
Ligue 1 leaders Monaco have been scoring goals for fun this season and put another four past Nantes last weekend, even without top marksman Radamel Falcao. The free-flowing football which threatened to tear Manchester City apart at times in their Champions League clash has inspired 12 wins out of 14 at home in this competition, with 50 goals netted, plus they prevailed 4-0 at Bordeaux earlier this term.
Ingolstadt to beat FC Koln @ 31/20
Ingolstadt are second from bottom in the Bundesliga table but have improved in the second half of the season, with five wins from their last 13 matches. That includes beating second-placed RB Leipzig at home and Bayer Leverkusen away. FC Koln have picked up only one point in their last four league games and could still be reeling from a drubbing off Bayern Munich.
Sampdoria to win at Genoa @ 37/20
Sampdoria have been in fine form in Serie A of late, with a six-match unbeaten run featuring wins over second-placed Roma and AC Milan. Former Juventus front man Fabio Quagliarella has found his shooting boots to net in three straight games and confidence is clearly high all across the team. Genoa scraped a late win at Empoli but had previously only picked up three points in 10 games.
Valencia to beat Sporting Gijon @ 9/20
By their own high standards, Valencia are having another moderate campaign, but they have at least given their home fans something to cheer about with three straight La Liga victories at the Mestalla, including a 2-1 defeat of Real Madrid. Gijon have only won one of their last 12 league games and have struggled to score goals on the road all season.
Atletico Madrid to win at Granada @ 12/25
Atletico shouldn’t be too distracted by next Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Bayer Leverkusen as they already lead 4-2 from the first leg in Germany and they are fancied to again prove a class apart from Granada, having crushed them 7-1 at home back in October. The visitors also prevailed 2-0 here last season and it will be a surprise if they are not simply too strong.
