The oddschecker team have picked out a football treble for this Wednesday’s Champions League fixtures at best odds of 4/1.
Atalanta to win vs Villarreal
The first team we have chosen is the Italian side Atalanta welcoming Villarreal to Bergamo. The final table is yet to be decided, Atalanta currently sit in 3rd position on 6 pts while Villarreal are 2nd on 7 pts. A win here for Atalanta will secure their place in the knockout stage. A draw will not do as this would see Villarreal progress and the Italians would enter the Europa League knockout stage instead. Atalanta have shown promising form domestically, winning their last five league fixtures. With impressive wins over Napoli (3-2) and Juventus (1-0). On the contrary Villarreal are in somewhat of a slump having lost 3 of their last 4 games. Therefore we are backing Atalanta to pick up the win here.
Man Utd to win vs Young Boys
Man Utd are the only side in Group F that have already secured their spot in the knockout stage however Ralf Rangnick will be looking to continue the momentum from their victory on Sunday. For a first game in charge with just 45 mins on the training pitch Rangnick’s style of play was there for all to see. For most of the game United pressed and harried Palace and retained 61% of possession. United regained possession 12 times in the final third, this was the most they’ve managed since Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge. We can surely expect more of the same at Old Trafford on Wednesday night. We are fully expecting the United boss to ring the changes however there will be plenty of players that will be eager to show the new manager what they can do. With Young Boys at the bottom of the group and little to play for, we find it hard to bet against the Red Devils in this one.
Sevilla to win vs FC Salzburg
Both sides in this one know that a victory will send them into the knockout stages therefore it is all to play for in Austria. Salzburg are in fine form at home, they have a near-perfect home record so far this season with 11 wins and just 1 Draw. The Spaniards certainly seem up against it until you look to Salzburg’s record against Spanish opposition. They have lost three of their last four games at home to Spanish opposition. In addition to that Sevilla seem to save their best football when away from home, they are undefeated in eight straight Champions League away games (W3, D5). We fancy Sevilla to continue this streak and have enough to earn 3pts.
