Five-fold to kick-start the weekend
Football backers have some fantastic matches ahead this weekend, including Chelsea vs Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-finals and a tense Old Firm Derby at the same stage of the Scottish Cup. Click here to place your bets on our football markets, or build your accumulators. Fortune favours the brave.
Before all that, Coral customers have a Friday night appetiser, giving punters a chance to boost their balance for an assault on Saturday and Sunday. We are betting on the matches that matter from the best leagues in Europe, and to give you that Friday feeling our football team have put together their best five-fold. Every £5 bet pays £147.20, if it’s our lucky night.
Brighton beat Norwich
Starting with game of the night and Brighton travel to Carrow Road looking to take a step closer to a Championship title that looks to have their name on it. The Seagulls weren’t given a chance pre-season, the gong promised to Newcastle, but have stuck to their task and go into the round seven points clear of The Magpies.
Brighton have won each of their last five, and seven of their last eight – the form of champions. Norwich have proven to be a tough nut to crack for punters this year, thumping Reading 7-1 before going on to lose 3-1 to Fulham next time out. Two wins and three defeats from their last five tells the story of The Canaries’ season as a whole. Let’s remember Brighton hammered Norwich 5-0 in the reverse of this fixture back in October, making our 2/1 on the double a treat.
Sevilla beat Granada
Stopping in on La Liga and Sevilla look an easy addition when paired with second-bottom Granada. The Spanish strugglers are winless in seven, six defeats and a draw, and were last seen losing 3-0 to Celta Vigo. Tony Adams has a massive job ahead, and his first task will be tightening up that leaky defence. We don’t give them a chance here though, and Adams should see the size of the job in front of him on Friday. Are they beyond help? Sevilla go in at 2/11, sorry Tony.
Hoffenheim beat Koln
Koln can be found holding their own in the Bundesliga, up in seventh, but their best form appears to have come and gone, losing three of their last four, winning just two of 10. That makes Hoffenheim very much the better side of the two, and fully deserving of a slot in our Friday football acca. The selection go third in the table, having won four of their last five Bundesliga starts. 5/4 is bigger than it should be.
Marseille beat Nancy
Marseille hammered Nancy 3-0 at the tail-end of 2016, and that extended their dominance over Friday’s opponents, with nine of the last 10 meetings ending in a Marseille win. That is a serious pointer if you are looking to stick with the stats. Fancy something a bit bigger? Three of the last seven have ended in 1-0 wins, giving you a real option in your correct score predictions.
Konyaspor beat Gaziantepspor
Finishing up in the Turkish Super Lig and Konyaspor are the picks to round things off. They go into the evening unbeaten in three, two wins and a draw, but what’s more eye-catching is that their opponents are second-bottom and on a two-match losing streak. They’ve collected just 11 points from the last 30, and that promotes our 4/5 on Konyaspor to NAP material.
