Underdogs to triumph in home comfort Euro acca

| 24.01.2014

There may be 13 televised football matches across Europe’s top league and cup competitions this Sunday but with the Ladbrokes News team picking out three potential big money winners your luck could well be in.

While our FA Cup acca suggests an away day treble, the action on the continent points to home comfort counting with Cagliari, Osasuna and Hamburg all tipped to win in this 34/1 treble.

Cagliari to beat AC Milan @ 16/5 (BT Sport 2 14:00)

Milan may have gone 21 games without loss against Cagliari – with the hosts last winning this fixture in December 1998 – but if I Rossoblu are to end that dismal run there has never been a better time.

I Rossoneri have won just one of their last 10 away games in Serie A and while back-to-back wins over Atalanta and Hellas Verona have steadied a rocking boat Diego Lopez’s team are very difficult to beat in front of their own fans.

The hosts have lost just two of their last 11 at the Stadio Is Arenas and as such will be confident about frustrating Clarence Seedorf’s stuttering side.

Osasuna to beat Athletic Bilbao @ 21/10 (Sky Sports 1 16:00)

Bilbao top Spain’s unofficial second league by occupying fourth place in La Liga and after losing just one of their last eight league fixtures deserve to be priced as favourites here.

However, Los Leones have struggled on the road this term, winning just two of their last eight away from San Mames, while Javi Gracia’s men are a solid unit on their own turf.

Los Rojillos are unbeaten in five at El Sadar, with a recent 2-2 draw with Real Madrid evidence of their stubbornness.

Back the hosts to cause an upset here.

Hamburg to beat Schalke @ 7/4 (BT Sport 1 16:30)

The closest of the three games to call despite seven places separating Hamburg and Schalke in the Bundesliga.

Die Konigsblauen have lost just one of seven league ties as the away side but the winter break has not been kind to Jen Keller’s team.

Friendlies may not be the best indicator of form but after losing two of their three fixtures during the break the visitors will understandably be a little under confident when heading to the Imtech Arena.

Die Rothosen won two and drew two of their mid-season ties and having gone unbeaten in four of the last five meetings with Schalke will be confident of turning that friendly form into a welcome league victory.
