European Accumulator: French draw bolsters four-fold returns

| 30.03.2013

With an abundance of football to be played over the course of the Easter weekend, it could pay not to focus solely on domestic action to turn a profit.

And we believe we have picked out four correct results across as many different European leagues to bring a payout at more than 16/1.

To begin with, we take Eredivisie title challengers PSV Eindhoven at 4/11 to overcome a Roda JC side that is woefully out of form.

Though Roda possess home advantage, they have won only three times on their own patch all season, and have emerged triumphant just once from their past eight league outings.

Their visitors, by contrast, have won 12 of their last 17 matches in all competitions, and can go top with victory over the Dutch top flight’s third-bottom team.

Next, we turn to France, and feel there will be nothing to separate fifth-place Nice and third-place Marseille at Stade Municipal du Ray, with the draw priced at 21/10.

Stalemates have emanated from the travelling side’s past two matches, whilst each of the last two encounters between this pairing both ended level.

And with a combined total of 15 draws emanating from the Ligue One outfits’ games this season, it looks likely that there will once again be nothing to choose between the teams.

For the third leg of our bet meanwhile, we look to Germany, and opt for fourth-place Frankfurt to claim 11/8 victory at the home of rock-bottom Greuther Furth.

The visitors’ generous price is available in light of their poor recent form, though it should be noted that they have lost only one of their past four away games, and that their last league success came on the road.

Furth themselves haven’t won in their past five attempts, and remain the only Bundesliga side without a home triumph all season.

And finally, we fancy Atletico Madrid to take the spoils as 3/4 shots opposite Valencia at Vicente Calderon.

Spearheaded by Radamel Falcao, Atletico have won 13 of their 14 home La Liga games this term, and also possess the division’s best defensive record on their own patch.

Against a side that have registered the joint-lowest tally of away goals in the Spanish top flight, confidence should be placed in Diego Simeone’s hosts.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
