Man City, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid in tantalising 9/4 treble
Coral are offering enhanced odds with Manchester City, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid available at 9/4 all to win their respective matches on Bank Holiday Monday.
Premier League giants City clash with Liverpool, whilst Real host newcomers Cordoba in their La Liga opener and Spanish champions Atletico encounter capital rivals Rayo Vallecano. Here’s why this treble is terrific.
Man City v Liverpool
Current Champions City boasted an imperious home record last season, winning 17 league games, scoring 63 goals and conceding just 17 times.
They are odds-on at 5/6 to start as they mean to go on, by defeating Liverpool at the Etihad, a feat they have managed on three of their last four Premier League encounters with the Reds on home turf.
Last term’s top Citizens scorer, Yaya Toure, is 13/2 to fire home first, or 10/1 to put two or more past shaky stopper Simon Mignolet.
City’s star man Sergio Aguero, meanwhile, has already opened his account this campaign, and is also available at 5/1 to continue his good form and net two or more.
Real Madrid v Cordoba
Champions League holders Real will be eager to kick-off their La Liga campaign in style against newly promoted side Cordoba, who are returning to the top flight after 42 terms in the wilderness.
A baptism of fire should await them, as Los Blancos prepare to reward fresh faces Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez with their league debuts.
World Cup Golden Boot winner Rodriguez netted 10 times for Monaco last season, and is available at 20/1 to hit a hat-trick, with Madrid’s main men, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, at 7/4 and 10/3 to fire home first respectively.
Carlo Ancelotti’s Real won an impressive 16 home games at the Bernabeu last term, and are odds-on favourites at 1/12 to keep it a fortress by putting Cordoba to the sword.
Rayo Vallecano v Atletico Madrid
La Liga Champions Atletico prepare to defend their crown in their opener against Rayo, and are odds-on at 8/15 to get off to a winning start.
Having already lifted the Spanish Supercopa, Diego Simeone’s well-drilled side should be buoyed to face a team who finished just 12th in La Liga last term.
Atleti have an excellent recent record against Vallecano, having put nine goals past their city rivals in their two league clashes last campaign.
