Atletico Madrid and Barcelona best bets in Euro TV accumulator
The action never stops with a bevvy of live games being broadcast across Wednesday evening and a delightful fivefold in the offing for fans of La Liga, Serie A and Bundesliga football.
Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have been backed for handicap wins while goals are the order of the day in the Augsburg vs Leverkusen clash and outright wins are predicted for Real Madrid and Fiorentina.
Available at odds of nearly 13/1, there’s nothing unlucky about this Euro TV accumulator, with a return of £138.30 for anyone staking £10 with Ladbrokes.
Handicap markets seem to be the only way to get any value out of a Barca bet these days and though the Catalans are still odds on to win by a margin of three goals or more against Celta, we’re confident of Tata Martino’s men doing the job.
Barcelona won 3-0 in Vigo earlier this term and have scored at least three in four of the last five meetings between the teams. Having the Nou Camp faithful behind them should also help – Barca have won 6-0, 4-1 and 7-0 in their last three home league encounters.
Leverkusen’s alarming slump continued with a 3-2 home defeat to Hoffenheim at the weekend that means Sami Hyypia’s side have now gone nine games without a victory in all competitions, with Champions League qualification looking increasingly unlikely.
The Bayer-owned club remain reliable for goals though, scoring and conceding in five of their last six competitive encounters and that run could continue against upstarts Augsburg, who have also scored and conceded in four of their last five.
Last weekend’s 1-0 win at Napoli kept Fiorentina’s faint hopes of Champions League qualification alive, but La Viola will know that a win over an AC Milan team in freefall is a must, with the Rossoneri picking up just one point from the last 12 available in Serie A.
Fiorentina beat the Diavolo 2-0 at the San Siro back at the start of the season and confidence will be high for a team that won their last home encounter in the league, triumphing 3-1 over Chievo. With Napoli facing a tricky trip to Catania, the hosts could close the gap on third to just four points.
Another handicap tip for Wednesday sees an Atleti side on a roll in La Liga looking to win big at home against a Granada team that can cause problems on their day but may struggle to continue the attacking talents of Diego Costa and co.
Three of the Madrid side’s last four victories in all competitions have come by a margin of two goals or more and with their two previous La Liga meetings as hosts against Granada ending in 5-0 and 2-0 wins, the omens certainly look good.
Sevilla stunned Los Blancos with a 1-0 win at home last term but it should be a different scenario when the teams meet this time round as Real continue to fight for top honours in La Liga and head into this encounter in fine goalscoring form.
Madrid put seven past the Andalusians earlier this term and have scored two or more in 10 of their last 11 competitive games, a record that suggests they should have more than enough to see off a Sevilla team that has won just six of their last 15 at home.
