Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan and Sporting Lisbon in super 7/1
Coral are offering a majestic Mediterranean special bet to warm you up this winter, with La Liga Champions Atletico Madrid, Italian giants Inter Milan and Portuguese big-guns Sporting Lisbon at 7/1 all to win .
Back these top clubs from foreign climes to triumph and potentially make a profit to put towards a Christmas escape from the cold, dark nights.
Athletic Bilbao v Atletico Madrid
La Liga holders Atleti defeated hosts Bilbao an emphatic four times last term across all competitions, so are understandably 11/10 favourites for victory once again.
Diego Simeone’s title-winning side put seven past the Basque boys overall on those occasions, making them 6/1 to score three or more in this upcoming clash.
Atletico also managed to keep a clean sheet twice against Bilbao last season, and are 12/5 to win to nil once more. France attacker Antoine Griezmann certainly has an eye for goal, so back him at 12/5 to be on target anytime.
Inter Milan v Lazio
Home team Inter, 11/10 favourites to win, welcome Italian capital club Lazio having smashed them 4-1 on their last visit to the blue and black half of Milan.
The Eagles have only managed to defeat their hosts once in their past 15 attempts at the San Siro in Serie A, which should give recently returned Nerazzurri boss Roberto Mancini a boost.
Inter top scorer Mauro Icardi, who has recently been linked with a big money move to Chelsea, scored in last season’s rout, and is 5/1 to fire home first or 5/4 to strike anytime. Fellow forward threat, Southampton-owned Pablo Osvaldo is also available at the same prices for those markets.
Nacional v Sporting Lisbon
Portuguese football royalty Sporting travel to face minnows Nacional, who are just three points above the Primeira Liga relegation zone.
The Lions are odds-on at 4/6 to live up to their ferocious nickname and vanquish their hosts, having lost just one of their last eight games across all competitions.
Freddy Montero has been on target 13 times in the league this season and is 6/4 to score anytime, as is exciting Algeria forward Islam Slimani.
