Europa League accumulator: Newcastle are English treble pick
As the Europa League knockout stages hot up, we opt for three teams to bring up a payout just short of 9/1.
Home sides account for 100 per cent of our selections, with victories for each of the hosts expected to seal their progression to the quarter-final stage of the competition.
And punters should be wary of the early kick-off time of the first bout we take an interest in, with Rubin Kazan scheduled to get underway against Levante at 5pm.
The Russian hosts are 4/5 to triumph, a price which appears unmissable in light of their three home European victories from four games so far this term.
In each of those successes, the hosts failed to concede, and they look good to record another dominant result against a side that have failed to win any of their last four matches in all competitions.
Next up, we plump for 6/5 Lazio to complete a double over Stuttgart, who they bested 2-0 in Germany in the first leg of this clash.
Like first choices Rubin, Lazio have won three out of four Europa League games on their own patch this season, and remain unbeaten at Stadio Olimpico too.
The Italians’ last three victories in all competitions came without them being breached also, and that statistic bodes well against a team that has scored just once in their last three outings.
And we take Newcastle to finish off our treble, as 6/4 shots to dispose of Anzi at St. James’s Park.
The Magpies became the first side this term to avoid European away defeat to the Russians in their last meeting, and have lost just one of their last six matches across all ventures.
They face opposition winless on their Europa League travels this season, and one which has tasted success only solely in their past seven matches.
