Four tremendous tips for European weekend wagers featuring Bayern, Inter, Atleti
Holly Thackeray | March 4, 2016
Fancy a flutter on more exotic encounters? Coral take punters on a trek across Europe, with four fab continental bets from the best fixtures across the continent this weekend, Saturday, March 5th and Sunday 6th.
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, turning a tidy profit could pad out your wallet or purse in timely fashion after the Sunday spending spree. So, read on to see which rumbles, and odds, have caught our eye…
Borussia Dortmund v Bayern Munich
We couldn’t start without a spot of Bundesliga betting, especially as first and second spot big-guns Bayern and Dortmund are about to duel.
In this tasty Saturday teatime tussle, why not take odds of 3/1 for the Munich men to win and both teams score. Pep Guardiola’s guys pummeled this opposition with five goals at the Allianz Arena earlier this campaign, though BVB still managed to bag a consolation goal.
Both teams have been on target in three of their last four meetings but despite Dortmund’s dangerous roster, Bayern’s superstar squad should hold the edge in this potential title decider.
Sporting Lisbon v Benfica
In another exciting encounter on Saturday, as we arrive in Iberia, the Lisbon Derby is another match-up between top two title contenders.
Benfica are unbeaten in 12 matches across all competitions, while Primeira Liga leaders Sporting have clocked up only one win in four.
Reports suggest apparent Manchester United target and midfield dynamo Renato Sanches is motivated to impress in what could be his last derby in Portugal, so back the Eagles at 2/1 to fly and grab an away win which can propel them to the summit.
Valencia v Atletico Madrid
Over in Spain, rampant Atletico are an intriguing shout at 19/10 to win to nil on the road at Valencia on Sunday. Gary Neville’s guys are much revived but, crucially, the Madrid men have kept clean sheets for a splendid five games on the trot in all competitions.
Industrious Atleti conceded just twice in their previous seven away trips, meaning their staunch defence should prove tough for the Bats to breach, especially as the capital club have shut out Valencia twice in their last five La Liga meetings, losing only one of those.
Inter Milan v Palermo
Another evening Sunday dust-up sees the action turn to Italy, as stumbling Inter Milan hosts Palermo, though the island outfit are only four points from the drop zone and without a win in six.
With this in mind, take a wager for leading Nerazzurri net threat Mauro Icardi to make mischief after poaching twice against the Sicilian side last term in this fixture.
As seven of the South American sharpshooter’s 11 Serie A strikes this season have been openers, Icardi looks enticing 3/1 to fire in first again.
