Arsenal, two Madrid’s and Juventus in 9/4 fab fourfold
Coral welcome the Champions League back this week and, to celebrate, we have a fantastic fourfold, featuring Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Arsenal and Juventus all to win at 9/4.
Juventus v Olympiakos
Massimiliano Allegri’s Old Lady host Greek side Olympiakos, having gone three points clear at the top of Serie A, following a 2-0 win away at Empoli, after goals from Andrea Pirlo and Alvaro Morata. Juve are heavily odds-on at 2/7 for victory, and have won two out of their last three meetings against the side from the port of Piraeus, including a 7-0 demolition 11 years ago, when five different strikers got on the scoresheet. It’s a must win match for the Turin titans who need three points to strengthen their case to progress to the knockout phase.
Malmo v Atletico Madrid
Last year’s finalists Atletico are joint-top of Group A, with a goal difference of plus five, and are odds-on at 1/3 to overcome Malmo. A win would secure Diego Simeone’s side a place in the last 16 and, with the likes of Mario Mandzukic and Antoine Griezmann in the starting XI, both of whom scored last time out as Atleti beat Cordoba 4-2, they have a great chance.
Real Madrid v Liverpool
The Champions League holders have a heavy odds-on price of 1/4 to record victory over Liverpool, after sweeping the Reds aside 3-0 at Anfield. Los Blancos could be boosted by the return from injury of Gareth Bale, who could slot into attack alongside the prolific Cristiano Ronaldo, who opened the scoring on Merseyside (9/4 to do so again), James Rodriguez, and Karim Benzema, who bagged a brace (5/1 for that or better) against Brendan Rodgers’ side.
Arsenal v Anderlecht
Should the Gunners beat the Belgian outfit, they can secure qualification to the knockout phase, and have an odds-on price of 1/3 to do so. Two goals in the last couple of minutes handed the Gunners victory in the corresponding fixture, with Lukas Podolski getting the winner. The German is 7/4 to net anytime if he starts, while Chilean Alexis Sanchez, who has 10 in all competitions for Arsenal, is 4/1 to open the scoring or 9/2 to hit two or more, after bagging braces in his last two matches.
