Real, Bayern, Chelsea, Man City, Atletico and Arsenal in awesome acca
Holly Thackeray | July 26, 2016
There are so many potentially profitable pre-season punts in the pipeline with Coral for lucky customers, as glamour friendlies featuring Europe’s biggest teams continue to enthral this summer.
Thursday and Friday bring several star-studded fixtures featuring continental heavyweights such as Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich plus Premier League giants Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City.
So, to show just what sensational value you can find using Coral’s accumulator, we’ve come up with a super sixfold from a sextet of matches worth sticking an acca on…
Real ready for PSG rout
It’s International Champions Cup action up first on Thursday for Real Madrid as Zinedine Zidane takes his Champions League winners to wrestle with PSG.
A few big names will be missing after Euro 2016 but Los Blancos still have plenty of competition up top with Alvaro Morata and Karim Benzema on the books. Having bested the Ligue 1 club in Europe last season, Real’s riches in attack are 17/10* to pip the Parisians in 90 minutes again.
Bayern Munich to boss Milan
Carlo Ancelotti’s Bayern continue their warm-up ahead of the new Bundesliga campaign by battling AC Milan, who are on their eighth new coach in Vincenzo Montella since Ancelotti left his San Siro post in 2009.
The Rossoneri may be football royalty, but their squad is in somewhat of a shambles after missing out on a Champions League place again, while Bayern roll on like a well-oiled winning machine with a revived Franck Ribery in tow. The Allianz Arena outfit are odds-on at 7/10* to school AC.
Chelsea can sink Liverpool
Chelsea have lost only one of their last 10 across all competitions versus the Merseyside Reds in 90 minutes and are rated 27/20* to triumph in this tussle.
The London Blues are building what looks to be a brilliant and balanced side under Antonio Conte, while most of Liverpool’s transfer business has revolved around adding yet more attacking midfielders to the squad.
Manchester City to defeat Borussia Dortmund
Pep Guardiola certainly knows how to defeat Dortmund, with this German team under Thomas Tuchel a foe the Man City coach knows well after several seasons as boss of big rivals Bayern, who he steered to a 5-1 thrashing of BVB last term.
Despite Manchester United making them look good in China, Dortmund have been severely depleted in the summer transfer market – with star name stuffed City, who are 6/4* for victory, one of the main culprits.
Atleti too much for Tottenham
Friday then pits Atletico Madrid’s wits against Tottenham, a tussle Diego Simeone’s side are 7/5* to win. The Champions League runners-up have been buoyed by retaining their boss and many big name players, and their overall quality and determined discipline should be too much for Spurs – who have had an inconsistent off-season so far.
MLS All-Stars to come unstuck v Arsenal
Finally, for something a little different, Arsenal will encounter US action as they continue their pre-season friendly warm-up against a combined MLS All-Stars side which aren’t used to plying their trade together.
The goal-hungry Gunners are a generous 6/4* to emerge as victors against a team containing many now ageing former stars from Europe, though notable names such as Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard are not included.
This sensational sixfold could produce winnings of £161.80 from just a £1 punt, while a £10 stake reaps an incredible £1618.00 if all six predicted results come off – so place your bets with Coral quickly before you miss out!
