Sunday European Soccer Multi
Fancy a crack at this $12* European four-legger?
Torino v Cagliari - Serie A
Our multi kicks-off on Sunday evening, as Europa League-chasing Torino host mid-table Cagliari.
The visitors come into this in excellent form—winning five of their last eight in Serie A (losing the other three)—but I’m still backing Torino to win. While Cagliari is excellent at home, they’ve lost six of their last seven on the road (failing to score five times), which is why I’m backing Torino.
Walter Mazzarri’s men have won six of their last seven at home, so although it appears Cagliari have a big chance heading into this, they simply can’t seem to click on the road, making Torino my solid favourites.
Dinamo Moscow v FK Krasnodar - Russian Premier League
My value pick is for Krasnodar to beat Dinamo Moscow away from home – priced generously at $2.35*.
Dinamo has one point from their last four league matches and is right in the midst of a relegation battle in the Russian top-tier. Furthermore, three defeats from their last four at home—all against sides who lie below second-place Krasnodar in the table—will leave home fans sweating.
Krasnodar have won four of their five away matches against bottom-half sides this season, and with a Premier League title still achievable, this is a must-win game.
Athletic Bilbao v Rayo Vallecano - Serie A
Athletic Bilbao has been excellent since the turn of the year, and I’m backing them to beat struggling Rayo Vallecano on Sunday.
The hosts are unbeaten at San Mamés since October and have won six of their last nine on home soil.
Rayo registered a shock win against Valencia last weekend, but with 10 defeats from their last 12 on the road, getting anything from this match looks like an incredibly tough task.
A couple of winnable home games lie ahead for Rayo, which is where their fate will be decided; this fixture, however, isn’t looking promising for them.
Maritimo v Feirense - Portuguese Primeira Liga
We have a battle between two strugglers in Portugal to finish things off. Maritimo sits just three points above the Primeira Liga relegation zone as they prepare to welcome doomed Feirense.
The visitors have a pitiful one point from their last 10 league matches, and I simply can’t see them getting anything against a Maritimo outfit who have won back-to-back home matches.
