Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico all to win at fantastic 5/1
Go with Coral for another enhanced special, priced at 5/1, if last season’s Champions League finalists, Real Madrid and neighbours Atletico, and three-time winners of this competition in the last decade Barcelona all win.
This Spanish trio face group stage battles where they are all favourites. Catalan club Barca travel to PSG, Real go to European Cup new boys Ludogorets Razgrad and Atleti host Juventus.
PSG v Barcelona
Barcelona are undefeated against PSG in their last three encounters, which is why Coral make them away favourites at evens for victory again. The former are also in terrific form this term, winning six out of their seven games in all competitions to nil, and are 16/5 to do so once more. Laurent Blanc’s boys, meanwhile, have won just one of their last five matches.
If that is not enough for PSG, they have been hit with the news that star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not feature, and neither will captain and rock at the back Thiago Silva – both through injury.
Lionel Messi comes into this game on the back of surpassing 400 goals for club and country, and the Argentine magician is 6/5 to grab yet another goal.
Ludogorets Razgrad v Real Madrid
Unsurprisingly, these two sides have never met. Razgrad were only founded 13 years ago and are taking part in their first Champions League campaign, while Real are 10-time European Cup winners. It is fair to say that Coral are spot on making the latter and title holders heavily odds-on at 1/6 to beat the Bulgarians.
Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo enters this game after hitting an unbelievable 13 goals from eight La Liga, Champions League and UEFA Super Cup games. The Portuguese great is odds-on to net anytime, and 7/4 for two or more.
Atletico Madrid v Juventus
These sides have not met since the 1960s in the Fairs Cup, but it it is Atletico who can boast bragging rights in this competition recently, having reached the final last season. Juve, meanwhile, have only reached the quarters once in the last eight campaigns. The Spaniards are, therefore, 23/20 favourites for victory.
Atletico have won their last two La Liga matches to nil, and are 11/5 chances to to do so to the Turin outfit as well.
Centre back Joao Miranda is Diego Simeone’s surprise top scorer this term in the league with three, and the Brazilian is 7/1 to get a goal anytime again.
