Coral present customers with five fantastic Sunday football tips from across Europe, to celebrate a superb day of cracking duels from across the continent, featuring Juventus, Napoli, Real Madrid and more…
Juventus v Roma – Paulo Dybala 4/1 to score first
Serie A’s billboard battle of the weekend between revived champions Juventus and rivals Roma, under the stewardship of former boss Luciano Spalletti again, promises fireworks.
Juve dangerman Dybala has been making the difference recently in Turin, outshining fellow forwards Mario Mandzukic and Alvaro Morata with either a goal or assist in eight of his past nine league outings, so is Coral’s top tip for this tussle.
Last time out against Udinese, the exciting Argentine bagged a brace as well as setting up two more while, having opened the scoring in two of his previous four appearances in all competitions, Dybala is a fantastic 4/1 to draw first blood against Roma.
Atletico Madrid v Sevilla – Antoine Griezmann 7/2 to score last
Hosts Atleti are formidable at home, where they have not lost in La Liga since September. In Diego Simeone’s favour is also the form of France forward Griezmann, who is a generous 7/2 to grab the last goal.
Guests Sevilla are yet to win on the road in league rumbles, leaving the door open for influential Griezmann, who has hit five in his past four. Furthermore, the Frenchman has fired the final blow in two of his previous three.
Sampdoria v Napoli – Little Donkeys 21/10 to win and both teams score
Scudetto chasers Napoli have proven to be one of Italy’s most exciting attacking sides’s this season under the guidance of new gaffer Maurizio Sarri, and the goal threat of Jose Callejon, Gonzalo Higuain and Lorenzo Insigne should see them past Samp.
Though, for all their forward thrills, the Campania club have proven leaky of late and have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last five fixtures. In fact, the Little Donkeys have scored and conceded in four of those frays, winning the same amount, so could pay off at a 21/10 to sink Sampdoria and both teams find the net.
Real Betis v Real Madrid – Los Blancos to bag five or more at 13/2
Since France legend Zinedine Zidane took over the Real reigns, the Spanish capital club have scored 10 in two games, with five strikes apiece in each.
Talisman Cristiano Ronaldo has been running rampant once again, while Karim Benzema has also been bagging goals galore. With such a fearsome frontline, Los Blancos look brilliant value at 13/2 to notch five or more against Real Betis, who are tellingly without a win in 10 across all competitions.
Lyon v Marseille – A draw at 23/10
These fallen French giants are level on points as they sit stranded in the Ligue 1 table, far behind leaders PSG, and look a tasty tip at 23/10 to split the spoils. As it happens, three of the past six encounters between the two have ended evenly, including in their first duel this season.
Marseille have also drawn four of their last six in normal time, while Lyon have won just one of their previous three in all competitions.
