Accompanying our Champions League coverage this week, we have a full schedule of Championship fixtures, which means another terrific combined treble, featuring Real Madrid, Juventus and Bournemouth at 11/2 with Coral all to win.
So, with that in mind, you might be wondering exactly why this bet is such good value. Though, no need to worry, because we’re going to tell you, reviewing each team’s statistics, so that you have the requisite knowledge to make an informed decision on these enhanced odds.
Let’s start with last season’s Champions League winners, who have been in fantastic form of late!
Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid
The last time both clubs met in Europe, was last season’s Champions League final, when Los Blancos steamed their way to a 4-1 victory, as coach Carlo Ancelotti steered them to a historic ‘La Decima’, and win it for a third time as a manager himself.
Priced at 13/8, they are favourites going into the first leg match, and Cristiano Ronaldo has already netted three times against Diego Simeone’s men this term and is 6/5 in the anytime market, having scored in the final last season.
The Portuguese forward struck first last time out, as Real surged to a 3-0 home victory over Eibar, while Javier Hernandez was also on target and is 2/1 in the same market.
Juventus v Monaco
The Turin titans are overwhelmingly odds-on at 4/9 to beat Monaco in Italy and, having disposed of Borussia Dortmund 3-0 away from home already in the last round, they are in fearsome form. Could this be their year?
In what can only be described as dominant, Juve have blown the rest of Serie A away this term and eased into the Coppa Italia final.
When these two teams last met in 1998, Juve ran out 6-4 aggregate winners and with a number of their players in outstanding form, could tear the French outfit apart if they are really in the mood. Top scorer Carlos Tevez is well priced at 3/1 to net the opener, having done so against Dortmund.
Reading v Bournemouth
First in the Championship, the Cherries are odds-on at 8/15 to win this in the normal match market, and are unbeaten in their last nine matches, having swept aside Brighton 2-0 away from home last time out.
In their last two matches, the south coast side have scored six, with Callum Wilson and Yann Kermogant netting consecutively. They are 7/2 and 9/2 respectively to strike anytime against a side who haven’t won in four.
