Bayer Leverkusen, Galatasaray and Olympiakos all still have plenty to play for in the final round of Champions League group matches and we’re plumping for all three to fulfill their end of the bargain and collect victories.
A £10 bet on our chosen trio returns a whopping £101.05 with Ladbrokes and given the evidence available it could well be one of the most tempting bets on offer.
Sami Hyypia’s visitors travel to face Real Sociedad off the back of a signficant 1-0 away win against Bundesliga rivals and last year’s Champions League finalists, Borussia Dortmund.
And with the opportunity to potentially leapfrog Shakhtar Donestk in Group A and qualify for the knock-out stage if victorious at the Anoeta, don’t expect a repeat of the performance that saw Bayer mauled by Manchester United.
Sociedad’s measly return of just one point from their five previous group games highlights their frailty at this level and having scored a solitary goal in that period they should pose little threat.
By contrast, recent match-winner Heung-Min Son, a scorer of three goals in his last four matches for Leverkusen, is a 6/1 shot to score first in Spain.
It’s ‘winner takes all’ in Istanbul with Galatasaray knowing that victory against Italian champions Juventus would seal their passage to the last 16 from Group B.
Roberto Mancini’s men sealed a dramatic 2-2 draw in Turin in the reverse fixture and looked good value for a point against a largely toothless home attack.
With the atmosphere at the Turk Telekom Arena guaranteed to be red hot, a repeat of Gala’s 2-0 win over The Old Lady in 2003 could be in store.
Juventus have only won two of their previous seven Champions League away games with draws against FC Copenhagen and Nordsjaelland also coming during that period.
It could be a famous night for Cimbom.
Anderlecht’s wretched European campaign means they are rooted to the bottom of Group C with nothing to play for ahead of their clash with Olympiakos.
The Greek hosts need to at least match Benfica’s result against Paris Saint-Germain and if they avoid complacency they should have no problem dispatching of Les Mauves et Blanc.
With five wins in their previous seven Champions League matches at home and only one defeat in their last 16 games in all competitions, Thrylos will be in confident mood.
Konstantinos Mitroglou scored a hat-trick as Olympiakos eased to a 3-0 win in Belgium and for those feeling the same scoreline is likely then odds of 9/1 are very tempting.
