With no Premier League football this weekend, 888sport punters may turn their attention to Europe’s top divisions. There are plenty of fixtures to sink your teeth into and we’ve found a tasty 10/1 four-fold consisting of one top flight game from Italy, Germany, Spain and France.
Juventus get our latest European accumulator underway on Saturday night – the defending Serie A champions will be quietly confident of getting past Chievo. Check out our top tips on the continent below, starting with that clash in northern Italy.
Chievo Verona vs JUVENTUS
Chievo have won just one of their last 12 league games and their terrible run of form could continue here.
Rolando Maran’s men became the first side to lose against Italian minnows Benevento last month and it would be foolish to back against Juve. Chievo have struggled in this fixture, winning just once in 29 games and another defeat beckons.
Paulo Dybala could be the difference maker in this one. With 14 goals and three assists in 19 Serie A fixtures, the Argentina star is a 19/20 shot to add another effort to his tally.
The Italian champions have won three of their last four games against Chievo without conceding a goal and that makes the 21/20 for an away win to nil very appealing indeed.
TIP: Juventus to win to nil @ 21/20
BAYER LEVERKUSEN vs FC Mainz
Now second in the Bundesliga table, Bayer Leverkusen are building momentum at the right time of the campaign and Leon Bailey's form is a big reason for their success.
Heiko Herrlich’s side have lost just once in their last 10 home league games and it would take a brave man to back against the hosts. Since losing to Hertha Berlin in September, Leverkusen have lost just once in 22 competitive fixtures.
And that run could continue here. Mainz have won just one of their last 17 away games in all competitions, Leverkusen will be quietly confident of securing the three points on home soil.
Their last Bundesliga away win? 2-0 away at Bayer in February 2017. 4/5 for the hosts to take a lead into half-time represents solid value despite that result eleven months ago.
TIP: Bayer Leverkusen to win the first half @ 4/5
ATLETICO MADRID vs Las Palmas
Atletico have conceded nine goals in 20 La Liga games – an incredible feat. Meanwhile, Las Palmas have scored just 16 goals; only Malaga have managed fewer.
After a slow start to the season, Antoine Griezmann has started to find his feet in front of goal. The France star has bagged in each of the last two games and he is a 5/2 shot to open the scoring.
Las Palmas have scored just once in their last five league fixtures against Atletico and all of the omens point towards a straightforward victory for Diego Simeone’s men.
Las Palmas are struggling and the 4/5 for an Atletico victory with a clean sheet is a very solid bet.
TIP: Atletico to win to nil @ 4/5
BORDEAUX vs Lyon
Lyon are currently second in the Ligue 1 table and punters will fancy the visitors to go on and push for top spot in the coming months.
Scoring goals comes naturally to Lyon; the French giants have bagged 51 goals in 22 league games. Bordeaux, on the other hand, have mustered just 24 goals. The hosts may be the surprise outfit of the weekend.
With victories against Paris Saint-Germain and AS Monaco for Lyon in the past seven days, plenty of fans will be left scratching their heads at this selection.
However, those excursions may take their toll and Bordeaux will be determined to bounce back after three successive Ligue 1 defeats on home soil. 7/10 is a good price considering their potential.
TIP: Bordeaux to win OR draw @ 7/10
