With Cheltenham festival in full flow and the Champions League waiting in the wings as the evening’s entertainment, Ladbrokes are offering a potential gateway to punters paradise with a combined treble.
If Paris St-Germain, Barcelona and Champion Chase favourite Sire De Grugy all do the business then punters get paid out at generous odds of 13/2 with this Champions Treble:
Sire De Grugy to win the Champion Chase – C4, 3.20
The money has rolled in for this season’s Tingle Creek and Clarence House winner, Sire De Grugy, and it’s hardly surprising given the bearing these races have had on the Champions Chase in recent years.
Nine of the past 13 winners of this race have won the Creek in the same season and with five wins this season Gary Moore’s stable star is the leading jumps horse of the campaign by some margin.
He’s a worthy Cheltenham favourite if ever there was one.
PSG to beat Bayer Leverkusen – Sky Sports 1, 19:45
It’s fair to say that Bayer Leverkusen were battered by their French opponents in their own back yard when losing 4-0.
Two goals for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the second an absolute humdinger, capped a hugely one-sided victory for PSG, who should easily brush their forlorn opponents aside in Paris.
Leverkusen are currently in the midst of a torrid winless run of six games, which includes four losses.
Barcelona to beat Manchester City – Sky Sports 4, 19:45
Unfortunately for Manchester City the collateral damage in their tie with Barcelona was done when Martin Demichelis received his marching orders, leading to a converted Lionel Messi penalty.
A 2-0 deficit is mountainous in the extreme, especially given Barca’s imperious record at the Camp Nou this season.
Gerardo Martino’s stars have won 12 of 13 home league games and all three Champions League group encounters in front of their own fans ahead of City’s visit.
