Roma, PSG, Valencia, Ajax in enticing European Sunday tips
Holly Thackeray | February 6, 2016
With another week of thrilling fixtures across the continent, Coral pick out five plum European bets for punters, stretching from the Eredivisie to La Liga, Serie A and more…
Ajax v Feyenoord – Milik 9/2 to net first
We kick-off with the Eredivisie, where two Dutch giants in Ajax and Feyenoord will jostle. The Amsterdam hosts face their Rotterdam rivals 13 points ahead of their guests and one from the summit.
Step in Polish poacher Arkadiusz Milik, who has the chance to run rampant due to Feyenoord’s poor defensive form, as they remain without a win in six.
Marksman Milik opened the scoring last time out for Ajax, something he has done on six occasions already this term. So, as the potent striker clearly has a thirst for the first goal, back him at a nifty 9/2 to nab it again.
Real Betis v Valencia – Bats 9/5 to beat Betis
Both sides are in poor patches of form, but the Bats possess enough talent to beat Betis, who have claimed just two wins in all competitions this campaign.
Gary Neville’s Valencia are in need of a morale-boosting triumph, and it is not often or against many teams you can back the Bats for glory at such a generous 9/5.
The Spanish giants have their backs against the wall, and are worth a punt to give the Manchester United legend his first Liga three points, with a head-to-head record of 22 to eight against their hosts.
Celta Vigo v Sevilla – Gameiro 6/1 to bag a brace or better
Flexible French forward Kevin Gameiro should be rubbing his hands with glee ahead of Sevilla’s trip to a now stumbling Celta Vigo side.
The Bathtubs star is sublime at 6/1 to bag a brace after helping himself to a deadly double last time out against, you guessed it, Celta.
Rarely content with just the one goal, Gameiro has grabbed two or more on four other occasions this season. They say things arrive in pairs…
Roma v Sampdoria – the Giallorossi 21/10 to win and both teams score
Serie A provides what should be a scorcher this Sunday, as Roma scrabble to claw their way back into Champions League contention.
Slowly but surely progress appears to have been made after the return of prodigal boss Luciano Spaletti, and the Eternal City outfit have won two on the trot. While, Samp have slumped and are without a win in five. Though, crucially, in all those fixtures they managed to find the net – eight times in fact.
With that in mind, backing the Giallorossi to grab a third victory on the spin but high-scoring Sampdoria to also strike looks savvy at 21/10.
Marseille v PSG – Parisians 6/5 to keep a clean sheet
Ligue 1 leaders PSG are an incredible 24 points ahead of their closest title competitors and can inch ever closer to claiming the league trophy against midtable Marseille.
The fallen giants do have home advantage but the Parisians boast an in-form Zlatan Ibrahimovic, just one defeat across all competitions this campaign and a formidable 14-match winning streak.
So, customers can enhance an odds-on 4/6 price for victory at the Velodrome by staking on PSG at 6/5 to shut out their hosts. After keeping seven clean sheets in as many of their last road trips, that is one tasty price.
