Those wise enough to have a punt on last week’s instalment of the Sunday Treble will have fattened their coffers considerably; hopefully these selections will see the trick repeated.
A bounty north of 19/1 is up for grabs, with Juventus, Valencia and Lille (who saw us over the line last time) taking centre stage.
Unlike the usual betting medley offered up, this week’s treble has a distinct win to nil feel about it.
Juventus to beat Napoli to nil @ 31/10
The Old Lady are out to mug Rafa Benitez and co on their own patch and a searing streak on the road says they’ll do it in some style.
In terms of price, this is the riskiest selection of the three, but in terms of everything else, it’s a borderline banker.
Rulers supreme in the Kingdom Calcio, Juve have won five straight games on their travels without allowing their adversary – including clubs of Milan’s and Fiorentina’s stature – to banish the bagel from their half of the scoreboard.
They’ve bested Partenopei – who have failed to score in two of their last five at the San Paolo – in three of their previous four meetings, including a 3-0 win earlier in the campaign.
Valencia to beat Getafe to nil @ 5/4
Improving under Juan Pizzi, Los Che are set to augment their seasonal points tally with a comfortable home win against foul travellers Getafe.
The capital club have returned pointless and goalless from six of their previous seven sojourns, while the Mestalla faithful has headed home satisfied from four of their last six.
Azulones’ upmarket neighbours Real Madrid were the last to visit Valencia and win since Almeria shocked them at the end of October and they shouldn’t have much hassle in attempting to claim the spoils here.
Lille to beat Guingamp to nil @ 5/4
The miserly defence of the good folks over at Lille Metropole provides the final stroke in this betting masterpiece.
With 18 clean sheets kept, Les Dogues are no greenhorns when it comes to shutting their foes out, while the 11 goals Guingamp have bagged on the frog and toad is a tally only two Ligue 1 sides cannot at least match, while their seven losses from 14 trips means they’re far from reliable away.
