If that alone isn’t enough to convince punters to part with their cash, then read on and discover specific reasons why this terrific threefold shall come off…
Arsenal v Olympiakos
All three previous meetings between these two in North London have ended in victories for the Gunners, so they are odds-on 2/5 favourites to win again.
Chile forward Alexis Sanchez made a devastating return to form last time out, hitting a hat-trick at Leicester City where one of Olympiakos’ key players, Esteban Cambiasso, spent 2014/15. Back the Arsenal attacker to net two or more here at 5/1.
Barcelona v Bayer Leverkusen
Catalan club Barca have won five of six meetings with Bundesliga boys Bayer, and current Nou Camp coach Luis Enrique has scored home and away against Leverkusen as a player. A home victory here is thus odds-on at 4/11.
Luis Suarez and Neymar are suspended from international duty, so the South American stars can solely focus on banging the goals in for Barcelona. They are thus 5/2 and 3/1 respectively for two goals or more in this fixture.
Porto v Chelsea
The Blues have four victories over the Dragons in six head-to-heads, so are 9/5 to take three points from their latest outing in Oporto.
Brazil-born Spain striker Diego Costa is in the middle of a domestic ban, but Mourinho is free to unleash his physical frontman in the Champions League, who is 5/1 to grab the opener.
