Schalke, St-Etienne and Deportivo in fantastic Friday 7/1 special

| 06.02.2015

Coral are offering a grossly enhanced price of 7/1 for all of home sides in their respective European league matches Schalke, St-Etienne and Deportivo La Coruna to win in Friday night action.

Roberto Di Matteo’s Gelsenkirchen outfit host Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga, Ligue 1’s Les Verts welcome Lens and the Galician club entertain Eibar in La Liga.

Schalke v Borussia Monchengladbach
Former Chelsea boss Di Matteo’s men are in a great run of form, as they have lost just one of their past eight matches in the German league, while the Borussians have been defeated in four of their previous nine. Schalke, therefore, are tempting 11/8 favourites for victory on home turf.

Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting has already scored against Monchengladbach this term, and is 9/5 to score again anytime. Ex-Portsmouth attacker Kevin-Prince Boateng, meanwhile, is an 11/4 chance in the same market.

St-Etienne v Lens
Massif Central French side St-Etienne won the reverse away match this term against Lens, who are currently down in the drop zone, as well as beating them 3-1 in this fixture last season. They are heavily odds-on favourites at 1/2 for victory again, and 16/1 for that latter scoreline.

Fabien Lemoine got the sole goal in the victory this season for high-flying Les Verts, and he is 9/2 to score again anytime. Norwich City loanee Ricky van Wolfswinkel has been more prolific in France, and is 6/4 to strike.

Deportivo v Eibar
The Coruna club come into this match on the back of beating Rayo Vallecano away, while Eibar are on a run two straight losses. Deportivo, therefore, are 11/10 favourites for victory here. They also won the reverse fixture this term 1-0, so take a price of 5/1 for that scoreline in their favour once more.

Juan Dominguez scored that day, and he 9/2 in the anytime market. Former Barcelona attacker Isaac Cuenca is a decent shout at 16/5, meanwhile, and Oriol Riera, on loan from Wigan Athletic, tops the market for Depor at 21/10.
