Leverkusen, Rangers and Toulouse feature in special Friday treble
Coral are offering a tasty 8/1 on a Scottish Cup, French Ligue 1 and German Bundesliga treble featuring Rangers, Toulouse and Bayer Leverkusen.
Borussia Monchengladbach v Bayer Leverkusen
Best of the rest behind runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen travel to Monchengladbach knowing they have only won one of the last five meetings.
Three of those were score draws, so there is little to choose between these German teams when looking at recent history.
Leverkusen, managed by former Liverpool defender Sami Hyypia, are in fact 7/4 outsiders to pick up three points here.
Although a share of the spoils is rated the most likely outcome at 23/10, Leverkusen have yet to draw on the road. Monchengladbach meanwhile have dropped just four home points and are 6/4 to win here.
They have only won one of their last five matches, however, and, with Leverkusen beating Stuttgart last time out, odds of 4/1 for Hyypia’s team to win and both sides scoring are attractive.
Leverkusen top-scorer Stefan Kiessling is 7/4 to score at anytime in Monchengladbach.
Rangers v Dunfermline
Gers host Dunfermline in the Scottish Cup as odds-on favourites at 1/6 as Ally McCoist’s men have already done a Scottish League One double over this opposition.
Ibrox outfit Rangers also have seven wins in a row against Jim Jeffries’ side. Dunfermline meanwhile last beat the Old Firm outfit in this competition in 2007.
Another cup upset seven years on looks a remote prospect at 12/1, with 13/2 on a draw.
The Gers have scored four or more in four of their last six encounters with Dunfermline, so it is worth taking 7/4 on them netting over 3.5 goals here.
Rangers have lost just once on their travels in all competitions all season and top scorer Jon Daly is 11/4 to net first or last.
Toulouse v Saint-Etienne
Mid-table Toulouse have proved troublesome for the chasing pack behind French title rivals PSG and Monaco this term.
Alain Casanova’s team have taken points off the likes of Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille and Saint-Etienne.
There is nothing to choose between Toulouse and Les Verts based on previous meetings, however, as each side has seven wins apiece with a further seven Ligue 1 encounters drawn since 2000.
In the reverse fixture, Toulouse came from behind and it is that resolve which should make punters optimistic on a 13/8 home win here. It’s 21/10 for a draw.
Saint-Etienne meanwhile are chasing the third Champions League spot, but have only amassed 14 of their 40 points so far on the road, so they are 9/5 for three points.
Les Verts still have giant centre back Kurt Zouma though, as Chelsea loaned the highly-rated prospect back to them for the rest of the season. He is 5/1 to score at anytime.
