The two frontrunners for the Premier League title collide at the Etihad Stadium, where Manchester City host Chelsea.
Despite its early scheduling, it’s a game that will have a huge bearing on what happens across the rest of the campaign and it’ll have just as big an impact on any Sunday profits punters are hoping to turn.
The match is the headline act in an appealing cross-continent fourfold that bwin generously applied the Combi+ treatment too, boosting the returns to a sizeable 12/1.
Here’s what’s required for it to land:
Chelsea to beat Man City @ 13/5
The Blues are yet to lose to a Manuel Pellegrini-schooled City in the league, claiming four points from their pair of Premier League visits to the Etihad.
Their form hasn’t been great since being crowned champions, but the fact remains they’ve lost just once on the road following their 5-3 New Year’s Day reverse at Tottenham, winning six of the eight domestic road games to fall after that fixture.
The aforementioned Spurs loss was their only setback against all of the sides to finish in last season’s top six.
Stuttgart to beat Cologne @ 21/20
Alexander Zorniger’s side begin the campaign at home to a team they’ve been defeated by just once in six meetings.
It’s this, alongside the fact they concluded the previous season by winning four and drawing one of their final five home matches that earns them their favouritism here.
Cologne, by contrast, are without an away win since the end of January.
Paris Saint-German to beat Ajaccio @ 11/100
A PSG win is priced a millimeter outside of a certainty and it’s clear to see why.
The only team to triumph at the Parc Des Princes last time around was Barcelona in the Champions League, while only four domestic visitors left having claimed a share of the spoils.
Benfica to beat Estoril @ 7/25
The Eagles are another as-good-as-won wager in this fourfold, with theirs and PSG’s inclusion essentially rendering this punt a double on Chelsea and Stuttgart.
Benfica leaked just four Primeira Liga points at the Estadio de Luz last term, routing forthcoming foes Estoril 6-0.
Of their last eight renewals, Rui Vitoria’s side have prevailed on seven instances.
