Arsenal, Atletico Madrid and Bournemouth star in superb 9/1 special

| 25.02.2015

Coral are offering customers another magnificent midweek special to help ease you towards the weekend!

Back Arsenal, Atletico Madrid and Bournemouth all to win at 9/1 in their upcoming clashes and reap the rewards of this tantalising treble.

Arsene Wenger’s Gunners host French league underachievers Monaco, Diego Simeone’s Spanish champions travel to Germany to face Bayer Leverkuson, while Eddie Howe’s Championship promotion hopefuls face Nottingham Forest.

Arsenal v Monaco
The Gunners, odds-on 1/2 favourites, have been in sensational form in recent weeks, winning eight of their last nine games in all competitions.

Wenger’s top four hopefuls climbed to third-place in the Premier League table, after a rampant run which has seen them lose just once in their previous six league outings.

Leonardo Jardim’s Monaco will have a tough task of toppling the freescoring London outfit, with Arsenal having won nine consecutive fixtures in all competitions at the Emirates this season, with six of those triumphs being to nil.

The visitors’ main threat will be Olivier Giroud, with the French forward striking 11 times this term, including four in his previous five appearances. The in-form striker is 9/2 to open proceedings for the Gunners.

Bayer Leverkuson v Atletico Madrid
Simeone’s La Liga champions, 6/4 to win, are again flying high in this season’s Spanish league table, sitting in third, and only three points adrift of second-placed Barcelona.

Atletico have lost just once in their previous six league fixtures, while their German opponents are in a poor run of form, having won just a single game in six outings in all competitions.

The Spanish visitors will be confident ahead of their last 16 clash, with Leverkuson’s home form being nothing to fear, as Roger Schmidt’s side have won only once in six Bundesliga fixtures at the BayArena.

Frenchman Antoine Griezmann has been in superb form for Atleti, firing in 17 goals this season, and he is 11/4 to net anytime.

Nottingham Forest v Bournemouth
The Cherries, 11/8 to win, have climbed to third in the Championship table, only three points adrift of league leaders Derby County, and look likely to gain automatic promotion.

Howe’s high-flying side have been beaten just once by Forest in the last five meetings between these sides.

Bournemouth’s top league scorer Callum Wilson is 9/2 to score first, having done so in the reverse fixture last year.
