Real Madrid, Valencia and Preston in magnificent midweek 5/1 special

| 07.01.2015

Fancy a tasty midweek flutter? Then back this terrific trio of teams from Spain’s La Liga and the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy in England.

Coral are offering fantastic 5/1 odds on Real Madrid, Valencia and Preston all to win in their upcoming midweek cup fixtures.

Here are even more reasons why you should benefit from from this tantalising treble.

Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid
Carlo Ancelotti’s men had their 22-match winning streak ended last week but will be aiming to bounce back in the first leg of their Copa del Rey last-16 clash with Atletico Madrid, a team which the European champions defeated three times in five meetings last season.

Madrid, 11/10 for victory, currently top La Liga by a single point, and have a far superior goal difference over rivals Barcelona and Atletico.

Cristiano Ronaldo has again been in sensational form this campaign, striking 35 times already in 28 appearances. The Portuguese superstar is available at a tasty 7/2 to net at anytime against Diego Simeone’s side.

Ancelotti’s league leaders face an Atleti outfit who are in a lacklustre run of form this season, having only managed to win two of their last five outings in all competitions.

Valencia v Espanyol
Valencia, odds-on 4/7 favourites, have only lost once to Espanyol in their previous five meetings, and have already defeated Sergio Gonzalez’s men earlier this campaign, in a 3-1 victory at the Mestalla.

Francisco Alcacer was on target in Valencia’s last win over their Catalonia rivals, and is available at 4/1 to bag two or more this time out.

The home side are pushing for a Champions League spot in La Liga, flying high in fourth place, and Nuno Espirito Santo’s men will be confident of toppling Espanyol who lie down in 10th in the league table.

Preston v Walsall
Preston, odds-on 4/5 favourites for this Johnstone’s Paint Trophy clash, have won two of the previous three encounters between these sides, including a double over their opponents last season.

The home side have gone six domestic league games unbeaten this season, on their way to third in League One, just three points adrift of an automatic promotion place.

Jermaine Beckford is on form for the Lilywhites, netting four goals in his last four appearances, and the clinical centre forward is available at 9/2 to bag the opener at Deepdale.
