Napoli, Sporting Lisbon and Malaga make for fab 5/1 European treble

| 14.02.2015

Coral are going all continental on Valentine’s Day with a later evening European treble, featuring Napoli, Sporting Lisbon and Malaga all to win an enhanced odds of 5/1.

Rafa Benitez’s Naples outfit travel to Palermo, while Sporting are across the Portuguese capital city at Belenenses and the Anchovies host Espanyol. Each of the three featured sides in this tasty travel are short-price or odds-on favourites for victory, so to enjoy real value take our boosted bet.

Read on and learn specific reasons why this enhanced offer should come off.

Palermo v Napoli
Benitez’s boys beat the Sicilian side home and away last term, and have scored three times against this opposition in four of the last five head-to-heads. That is why Napoli are even-money favourites for victory.

There are a wealth of attacking options for Benitez to choose from, though it is wing back Christian Maggio that scored in both fixtures last term. He is 5/1 in the anytime market. Slovakia midfielder Marek Hamsik, meanwhile, also has a fine record of netting against Palermo, and is shorter at 7/4.

Belenenses v Sporting Lisbon
Heavyweight capital club Sporting have lost just one league game in a decade against this opposition, and that explains their odds-on 2/5 status to win across Lisbon at this lesser known side.

Adrien Silva scored both home and away in this fixture last term, so a 5/2 price says he will be on target again anytime. On-loan winger Nani, meanwhile, is shorter at 2/1, and should have enough quality to cause Belenenses real problems.

Malaga v Espanyol
Since the turn of the century, Malaga edge the head-to-head record with Catalan club Espanyol 12-10. As the Anchovies sit nine points better off in La Liga, they are worthy even-money favourites to win.

Malaga skipper Duda and highly-rated midfielder Ignacio Camacho were both on target in the reverse fixture earlier this term, and this pair are equal 5/1 chances to net anytime once more. Portugal winger Ricardo Horta, meanwhile, is 11/4 in that market.
