Arsenal, Bilbao and Leverkusen in fantastic 3/1 special

| 27.08.2014

Coral are offering an excellent enhanced multiple, with Arsenal, Athletic Bilbao and Bayer Leverkusen available at a brilliant 3/1 all to win their respective games in 90 minutes.

As the second leg Champions League play-offs prepare to kick off, the Gunners will face Besiktas, as Bilbao do battle with Rafa Benitez’s Napoli and Leverkusen clash with Copenhagen.

Here’s why this is such a fantastic deal.

Arsenal v Besiktas
The Gunners kept a clean sheet against Turkish big-guns Besiktas in the first leg of this tie, and are odds-on at 10/11 to repeat that feat again, or 6/4 to win to nil in 90 minutes.

Arsene Wenger’s men remain unbeaten so far this season in all competitions, and are also odds-on at 2/5 to extend their 100 per cent record in this clash by defeating the Istanbul outfit.

Arsenal will hold the home advantage by hosting Besiktas at the Emirates, where they won 13 Premier League games last season, only suffering defeat once.

Midfield maestro Mesut Ozil scored seven times for the Gunners last term, and is available at 6/1 to fire home first, or 7/4 to net anytime. New summer signing Alexis Sanchez also has a nose for goal, and was on target 21 times last term. The Chile star is likely to start up front in the absence of Olivier Giroud and is 18/1 to hit a hat-trick.

Athletic Bilbao v Napoli
Basque boys Bilbao also have home advantage, and are 5/4 to thrill fans with a win in normal time, as they welcome Serie A side Napoli to Spain.

Ernesto Valverde’s men have a formidable recent record on their own turf, having only lost one out of their last six games on Sam Mame soil.

Bilbao’s goal hero from the first leg, Iker Muniain, netted nine times last term, and is 15/2 to double his European tally for this term so far by firing home first again.

Prolific poacher Aritz Aduriz has been on target 36 times in the last two seasons for the Spanish side, and is 5/4 to continue his fine form and score anytime against Napoli, or 6/1 to bag a brace or better.

Bayer Leverkusen v Copenhagen
Leverkusen tasted triumph in the first leg against Danish minnows Copenhagen, and are odd-on at 2/7 to do the same again.

Fearsome frontman Stefan Kiessling has been Leverkusen’s star man so far this season, netting seven goals in three games, including the first leg opener against Copenhagen. The German sniper is 9/4 to hit home first again, or 7/4 to score two or more.

If Kiessling’s sharpshooting talents aren’t enough to inspire Leverkusen to an impressive fourth consecutive victory this campaign, fellow forward Son Heung-Min is also on hand at 3/1 to fire in the final goal again, after sealing the thrilling 3-2 win in the first leg.

South Korea striker Son has also enjoyed a prolific start to the term, netting twice in three appearances, and fans will be hoping he can improve on last campaign’s already impressive output of 12 goals and seven assists.
