Barca, Roma, St-Etienne a superb 6/1 European treble this Sunday

| 30.11.2014

Fancy a flutter on European football this Sunday? Coral have put together a tasty televised treble just for you, which will see you clear up and end the weekend on a high.

Sensational and enhanced odds of 6/1 say Barcelona, Roma and St-Etienne will all win their respective La Liga, Serie A and Ligue 1 action. The Catalan giants are at Valencia, while the Giallorossi host Inter Milan and Les Verts welcome Lyon, who are a much-diminished force compared to a decade ago.

Each of these three featured teams are odds-on or short-price favourites in their individual match betting, so the only way to get real value is to take this massively boosted price. Read on to discover specific reasons why Barcelona, Roma and St-Etienne will win.

Valencia v Barcelona
While Los Che are reliant on bright young thing Paco Alcacer up front, Barca have global superstar strikeforce Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez leading their attack. As Luis Enrique’s men are on a run of four straight wins, and beat the Bats 3-2 at the Mestalla last term, the visitors are odds-on 8/15 favourites for victory.

Messi has been lethal when vying with Valencia. Nine goals in his last five outings against them, including a treble and a four-goal haul make for an ominous sign. Worse still for the hosts, the Argentine inspiration has hit back-to-back hat-tricks in La Liga and the Champions League. Back Messi to take the match ball home with him again here at 8/1.

Roma v Inter Milan
Only Bayern Munich have got anything from a trip to the Stadio Olimpico this season so far in all competitions. Couple that with Roma’s nine-match unbeaten run against Inter (Serie A and Coppa Italia), and Rudi Garcia Giallorossi are worthy odds-on 4/5 favourites for three points.

Roma captain and icon Francesco Totti has three in his last three league appearances against the Nerazzurri, so he likes to roll back the years in the fixture. Tasty odds of 13/8 are available on the Italian master to net again anytime here. Serbia international attacker Adem Ljajic, meanwhile, has scored in his last two Serie A outings, and is 21/10 in the same market.

St-Etienne v Lyon
When these two teams last met back in March, Les Verts won 2-1 thanks to a goal from former Leicester City and Leeds United winger Max Gradel. Factor in one home loss all season, plus seven Ligue 1 clean sheets, and that is why St-Etienne are 13/10 favourites for victory.

Gradel is 12/5 to net again anytime for Christophe Galtier’s team, while up front Norwich City loanee Ricky van Wolfswinkel is forging an encouraging strike partnership with Turkey frontman Mevlut Eding. The Wolf has pounced in both his previous two home games, and is 21/10 in the same market. Erding is a 2/1 chance.
