Pockets of the punters’ didn’t receive a lining at the hands of the Sunday Treble last weekend, but no one likes a quitter so here we are, back for another bash, determined to make your bank holiday a profitable one.
This week’s threefold is fantastically priced at 10/1 and features televised games involving the soccersphere’s grandest of fromages.
We kick off our three-stop tour around the continent in the Spanish capital, where Champions League-finalists Real Madrid will lengthen their flawless five-game streak at the Bernabeu at Valencia’s expense.
Real Madrid v Valencia – Real Madrid win to nil @ 13/10
Los Merengues have vanquished their previous five guests without allowing them as much as a goal in return.
This imperious quintet includes games against German giants Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munchen, as well as three La Liga foes whom they fired 13 goals past.
None of this bodes well for a Los Che side who are winless in six domestic road trips and have failed to locate the net’s whereabouts in three of their last four sojourns when taking all competitions into consideration.
Milan v Inter – Inter to win @ 7/4
The visiting Nerazzurri will claim the derby spoils to compound their neighbours’ miserable campaign and land the longest price of our treble.
This conclusion is deduced through acknowledging that Walter Mazzarri has masterminded four wins in his last six on the road and his black and blue boys have kept as many clean sheets in this timeframe.
Milan may be enjoying improved fortunes late in the piece, but they’re destined for Serie A obscurity this term and haven’t bested Inter in any of their previous five attempts so side with the travellers.
Marseille v Lyon – Under 2.5 goals @ 3/4
This battle of two of France’s fattest cats will not require fireworks, with attrition set to be the order of the day instead.
The final score has fallen short of the 2.5-goal mark in six of L’OM’s last eight encounters, including four of their latest five at the Stade Velodrome.
Lyon’s recent fixtures have occupied the scoreboard operator a little more, but three of their previous five away matches in Ligue 1 would have rewarded backers of this bet.
