Sevilla, Napoli and Salzburg are best value in Europa League treble

| 20.03.2014

Punters looking for brilliant value must consider placing a Europa League treble with Coral on Sevilla to win at neighbours Real Betis, Napoli for a victory over Porto and Red Bull Salzburg to beat Basel.

Exceptional enhanced odds of 11/2 are available on all three of these sides triumphing in 90 minutes.

Real Betis v Sevilla
This Seville derby sees the visitors needing to overturn a two-goal deficit from the first leg. That should not prove too difficult, however, as Betis have not won at home all season in La Liga.

Although the Europa League has been an escape from what looks to be inevitable relegation for the hosts, Sevilla have recorded back-to-back victories on the road. They have lost just one of the last four derbies too, and are 6/5 for a win on the night and 7/2 to qualify for the quarters.

Out of favour France striker Kevin Gameiro has been prolific for his club in this competition. He has five in seven Europa League appearances and scored twice in his last outing, so back him at 11/8 to net anytime.

Colombian Carlos Bacca may alternatively lead the Sevilla line and is their top-scorer with 15 in all competitions. He is auditioning to take Radamel Falcao’s place at the World Cup, and is the same price. Captain Ivan Rakitic, a rumoured January target for Liverpool and Manchester United, is also having a fine season in midfield, so take 6/1 on him grabbing the opening goal.

Napoli v Porto
Rafa Benitez’s boys are unbeaten at home since November 23rd, while managerless Porto come into this leg ahead but off the back of losing to rivals Sporting Lisbon. Napoli have beaten them in two of the previous three meetings, so are odds-on to win in 90 minutes at 10/11.

The Serie A side are 6/4 to advance from the tie and have prolific striker Gonzalo Higuain to fire them through. Back the Argentina international to score two or more at 7/1. There has always been a win to nil in this fixture, so takes odds of 9/4 on Napoli doing just that.

Red Bull Salzburg v Basel
As Red Bull Salzburg smashed Dutch Eredivisie champions Ajax 6-1 on aggregate in the last round, then that is more than enough evidence to suggest they will beat Swiss Super League side Basel.

Fabian Schar is among those on the treatment table for the visitors and, without his presence at set pieces in both boxes, they are considerably weaker. Salzburg are odds-on favourites at 4/9 to win on the night, and that outcome would mean they qualify for the quarters (4/11) as it is 0-0 on aggregate.

Red Bull’s Austrian outfit have the Europa League top scorer in Jonathan Soriano. He has seven in the competition proper and 10 if you count the qualifiers. Back the Spaniard at 11/4 to net the opener.
