Fiorentina, Lazio and Schalke a superb Europa League treble
With the Europa League back on our screens this Thursday, Coral celebrate the best of continental football by offering an enhanced and tasty 10/3 price for Fiorentina, Lazio and Schalke all to win.
Serie A table-toppers La Viola vie with Belenenses, while Eternal City outfit Lazio play St-Etienne and Gelsenkirchen club Schalke host Asteras Tripoli. Each of three featured teams in this tasty treble are individual odds-on favourites for three Europa League points, so to get the best value take this boosted price bet.
Read on and you’ll learn specific reasons why this tantalising threefold should come in…
Belenenses v Fiorentina
Paulo Sousa has steered the Viola to the Serie A summit superbly, while hosts Belenenses are languishing down in the Portuguese Primeira Liga’s mid-table. Fiorentina, with their superior firepower, are thus odds-on at 4/5 for victory in one Lisbon’s lesser-known corners.
Former Blackburn Rovers frontman and current Croatia international Nikola Kalinic hit a hat-trick against Inter Milan last time out, so that fearsome form means he’ll be a real danger that Belenenses will struggle to contain.
Lazio v St-Etienne
The Eagles are also odds-on at 5/6 to beat Les Verts, and have veteran striker Miroslav Klose still ready to be unleashed on their opposition. AC Milan loanee Alessandro Matri has made at impact for the Stadio Olimpico side with two goals in three appearances for Lazio.
Schalke v Asteras Tripoli
Only Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are ahead of the Royal Blues in the Bundesliga table, so they should have more than enough on their roster to prove too much Greek outfit Tripoli.
Asteras are going to find Schalke star striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar too hot to handle, as he has more Europa League goals (16) than appearances in the competition (13). Teenage talent Leroy Sane, meanwhile, has scored in three successive games going into this encounter.
