Atletico Madrid, Benfica, Sampdoria a superb 3/1 European treble

| 20.02.2015

Familiar names from Europe feature in a Saturday night delight treble from Coral, with enhanced odds of 3/1 available on wins for Atletico Madrid, Benfica and Sampdoria.

Each of these three teams are strong favourites to win their respective matches. Madrid host Almeria and Sampdoria have a derby day duel with Genoa, while Lisbon giants Benfica battle minnows Moreirense. Take our combined price, then, to ensure the best value.

Atletico Madrid v Almeria
Reigning La Liga champions Atletico have beaten Almeria in two of their last three meetings. As the visitors to the Vicente Calderon sit fifth bottom in the Spanish top flight table, Coral make Diego Simeone’s side strong odds-on 1/5 favourites for three points.

Portugal midfielder Tiago, Brazil centre back Miranda and Spain playmaker Koke all have goals against Almeria either this season or last. It’s forward pair Antoine Griezmann and Mario Mandzukic with Atleti icon Fernando Torres in reserve that will have the visitors worried, though.

Moreirense v Benfica
Portuguese capital club and league leaders Benfica have recorded seven straight wins over this opposition, who sit in 11th place. The Eagles are thus odds-on 4/11 favourites to beat them again.

Brazilian frontman Rodrigo Lima has four league goals in three previous outings against this side for Benfica, so Jorge Jesus has a proven scorer for this fixture. Compatriot Anderson Talisca has had a breakthrough season with the Eagles, and also poses real danger, while Jonas is top scorer with 15.

Sampdoria v Genoa
It’s Sampdoria who have had the better of derby days in the port city recently with two wins on the spin in the last year going into this one. That is why they are 5/4 favourites to beat Genoa again.

Another Brazilian forward, Eder, has scored in each of Sampdoria’s last three home games, so will pose their city neighbours a potent threat up front.
