£5 Sunday five-fold returns over £57
Frank Monkhouse | 14 January 2017
We pick out a handy five-fold to put some sunshine into your Sunday
There’s no day of rest for Coral punters as we offer up an abundance of markets on all of Sunday’s matches from the top European leagues, and beyond. All you have to do is pay your money and take your choice. It’s that simple!
If you’re struggling to piece together a decent acca, or could do with a lively addition or two to boost up your returns, we have rummaged through the leagues and report back with our best football multiple of the day.…..
Real Madrid beat Sevilla
Real Madrid enjoy a comfortable margin at the top of La Liga after 16-matches, with a four-point cushion over Sunday’s opponents in second, and are five better than old rivals Barcelona down in third-place.
Zinedine Zidane’s boys are undefeated in La Liga so far, and they have handled themselves with credit against Seville in three previous meetings this term. A 3-2 win in the European Super Cup was followed by a 3-0 Copa Del Rey first-leg hammering at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium earlier this month. The pair did, in fact, meet at this venue on Thursday, ending 3-3, and nine-goals scored from three games will boost the visitors’ chances. The away day is a useful 10/11 and that stands as the first pick of our acca.
Man City beat Everton
If Man City are to show that they are still in this title race, then they must go and put a run of wins together, as Chelsea have done. They shuffle into the week down in fourth, having suffered hurtful defeats against Chelsea and Liverpool in recent outings.
The Citizens edged past Burnley in their last league outing, and will take heart from the fact that they haven’t lost here in the Premier League in almost four years. Everton have finally found their feet this season, living up to expectations, but they were beaten by Leicester at Goodison in the FA Cup last week and have picked up only three wins from their last 10 league starts. If Man City are in the mood, Coral’s 5/6 will make a lot of sense.
Juventus beat Fiorentina
The first of our two picks from Serie A goes at Stadio Artemio Franchi on Sunday evening and visiting Juventus are picked out to prevail over local heroes Fiorentina. The Old Lady have been virtually faultless in the first-half of the season, sitting top of the league with a four-point margin over nearest rivals Roma, also showing a game-in-hand.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side prepare for this latest test on the back of four wins in-a-row, with three of those coming by two goals or more. Fiorentina can’t match that record and, instead, are winless in their last three, showing two defeats and a draw. Juve took a 2-1 result when these sides met in the reverse of this fixture back in August and, with confidence high in the ranks, 5/6 on the away win appeals.
Napoli beat Pescara
Pescara were promoted from Serie B last term after a fourth-place finish, but they look out of their depth at this level and are rock-bottom of the league, with survival looking increasingly unlikely. They have managed just one win all season, and show eight defeats from their last 10.
Napoli’s form is quite the opposite and they have lost just one of their last 10, the spare coming back in October. Six wins put up during that purple patch gives backers courage and Maurizio Sarri’s troops were last seen beating Sampdoria 2-1 to sit third in the table. Partenopei have a big season ahead if they can remain consistent, and common sense supports them on Sunday.
Algeria beat Zimbabwe
Lastly, we stick our noses into goings on in the African Cup of Nations – yes, it’s that time again when Premier League sides lose some big names – and Algeria are favoured vs Zimbabwe. Neither side have been making a habit of winning recently, but Zimbabwe have lost three and drawn one of their last four against modest opposition, while Algeria show two wins during the same period, including a 3-1 vs South Africa.
On paper, there’s little between the two, but Algeria have been mixing it in better company, playing the likes of Germany and Russia at the World Cup, scoring against both nations. That experience will give them the edge here and 8/15 is thrown into the mix.
