Coral’s best bets for this weekend’s exciting list of crunch clashes

| 03.10.2015

Ahead of what is a genuinely exciting fixture list for around Europe’s top leagues, Coral bring you the best bets to back during an enthralling weekend of action across the continent!

Everton v Liverpool
Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Liverpool v Norwich City - Anfield

Five of the previous six Merseyside derbies have ended level while Brendan Rodgers has been in charge of Liverpool, and another Scouse stalemate is available at 21/10, with the Reds currently stuttering domestically, while Everton enjoy more encouraging form.

Arsenal v Man Utd
Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Manchester United v Sunderland - Old Trafford

Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United have been in superb form this season, despite minor blips against Swansea City and PSV Eindhoven, and they will look to extend that impressive run when they collide with rivals Arsenal.

In the previous encounter at the Emirates last year, the Red Devils narrowly edged past the Gunners with a 2-1 victory, thanks to a late Wayne Rooney strike, and they are 5/1 to secure another win with both teams scoring in London.

Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid
Soccer - UEFA Champions League - Group A - Real Madrid v Shakhtar Donetsk - Estadio Santiago Bernabeu

Cristiano Ronaldo recently joined Raul Gonzalez as Real Madrid’s all-time leading goal scorer, with a brace against Malmo, and the Bernabeu marksman is a tasty 4/1 to dispatch another double against city rivals Atletico on their travels.

AC Milan v Napoli
Italy Soccer Serie A

The Rossoneri recorded a comfortable 2-0 triumph over Napoli during last season’s Serie A campaign, and Sinisa Mihajlovic’s hosts are 9/2 to win to nil once more, having emerged victorious from their last four successive games at the San Siro.

Bayern Munich v Dortmund
Bayern Munich vs Dinamo Zagreb

Poland international sharpshooter Robert Lewandowski has captured the headlines recently with his sublime scoring feats, bagging 10 goals in his previous three Bayern outings.

Having broke Bundesliga records with his incredible nine-minute, five-goal haul against Wolfsburg, expect the prolific Pole to continue that rampant streak against his former club Borussia Dortmund. The in-form frontman is 3/1 to notch-up another couple against some familiar faces.

Ajax v PSV
Soccer - Dutch Eredivisie - Heracles Almelo v PSV Eindhoven - Polman Stadium

The previous two encounters between these Dutch giants have ended in 3-1 results to PSV and Ajax respectively since last year, and the visiting side are 25/1 to continue that trend with a win by the same scoreline this time out in this Eredivisie encounter.
