European acca: Real Madrid to beat handicap as Serie A giants win
As the biggest leagues around Europe near their conclusion, much is yet to be decided, and betting opportunities galore remain.
We focus on Spain and Italy in order to turn a profit, choosing the reigning La Liga and Serie A champions as two components of a treble that would pay out at more than 8/1.
Firstly, we take Juventus to extend a four-match winning streak away to Atalanta, despite the fact that Antonio Conte’s men have already sealed the retention of their Italian championship.
The Old Lady are a huge 23/20 to triumph, a price that appears yet more generous in light of La Dea winning only one of their past seven Serie A matches.
The hosts have failed to succeed in any of their last four also, and haven’t won a league match opposing their Turin counterparts since 2001, losing 14 of the pair’s 16 encounters during that period.
Next, we confide in Inter Milan’s ability to justify 7/4 odds to overcome Lazio at San Siro.
Both sides enter this bout in poor form, with victories emerging from two of the hosts’ past seven matches, and the visitors winning just once within the same time frame.
But with the Nerazzurri prevailing from their home league ties with Aquile for the last seven seasons in succession, it is difficult to resist backing them to further improve that record at such a tempting price.
And finally, we invest in Real Madrid’s 3/5 price to make light of a theoretical one-goal disadvantage against Malaga at Santiago Bernabeu.
Los Blancos have won their past five league matches in succession, and 11 of their last 12, whilst five of their seven home victories during this time have come via a two-goal margin or more.
Backing Real to achieve a dominant triumph over a side that has lost its last four away games in all competitions therefore looks the ideal way to round off our European treble.
