St-Etienne, Monaco and Marseille in stupendous 6/1 special
Coral are offering a fantastic French treble on Sunday, with grossly enhanced odds of 6/1 for all of current Ligue 1 top five clubs St-Etienne, Monaco and Marseille to win their respective matches.
Les Verts host Lille, the Principality state Champions League quarter-finalists travel to Reims, and Marcelo Bielsa’s high-flyers are on the road to relegation zone side Lens.
This bet is all the more incredible, given that each of the three teams featured are odds-on favourites for victory. Here are some more reasons why you should pile money on this sensational special.
St-Etienne v Lille
Hosts St-Etienne have enjoyed a decent season so far and currently find themselves up in fifth place, after winning their last two in the league. They also have also beaten upcoming visitors Lille in their last two home matches, so are odds-on favourites for victory again at 19/20.
Former Leeds United attacker and recent Africa Cup of Nations champion Max Gradel netted against the Great Danes in the reverse fixture this term, and is 5/4 to score again anytime. Ricky van Wolfswinkel, who is on loan from Norwich City, meanwhile, is also 5/4 in the same market.
Reims v Monaco
Odds-on favourites Monaco (10/11) are arguably the in-form team in Ligue 1, and have a game in hand on the current top three going into the weekend. On top of that, they come into this game on the back of triumphing in their Champions League last 16 tie against Arsenal, and are certainly a side in confidence.
The likes of Layvin Kurzawa and Valere Germain have scored against Reims before, and are 9/2 and 12/5 chances respectively to net again anytime. Former Manchester United man Dimitar Berbatov, meanwhile, is an 11/8 shout.
Lens v Marseille
Bielsa has worked wonders at Marseille in his debut season in France, and they are just four points off the top. They next face 19th-placed Lens, who have lost four of their last five in the league, and are odds-on 8/11 favourites to beat them, as they have done in their last three meetings in all competitions.
Andre-Pierre Gignac has been L’OM’s top man in front of net this term, and he is odds-on at 10/11 to add to his tally of 18 in all competitions.
