Enhanced Treble: Liverpool boosted with La Liga duo

| 24.01.2015

Last weekend saw favourites backers run amok, with Ladbrokes paying out huge sums when most of the Saturday favourites in English football obliged.

This, you would think, would have the bookmaker running scared of jollies but on the contrary as we’ve enhanced the odds on a trio of clubs that look nailed on for victory this weekend.

Backing Liverpool, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid looks the way to go with Ladbrokes boosting the price from evens to 5/4.

Read on to see why this is one treble worth backing to the hilt.

Liverpool to beat Bolton

Wanderers look a different side since the arrival of Neil Lennon with his Trotters side having tasted defeat just once in 12 games.

Unfortunately for the former Celtic manager Liverpool have negotiated an early season wobble and welcome the Championship side to Anfield having lost just one of their last 15 matches.

Emile Heskey may be set for an emotional return to his former Merseyside home but with Liverpool winning 10 of the last 11 meetings between these two don’t expect it to be a happy one.

Atletico Madrid to beat Rayo Vallecano

Rayo are struggling away from home at present, losing four of their last six on the road, and the last thing they need is a trip to the Vicente Calderon Stadium.

That’s exactly what they’ve got, however, and with the champions losing just once in 30 home games this tie looks likely to only go one way.

Diego Simeone’s men have lost just one of their last nine meetings with Vallecano and beat them 5-0 in the corresponding fixture last season.

Barcelona to beat Elche

This game should be filed under the Banker Bet category, with Barca usually at their rampant best against Los Franjiverdes.

The last five meetings have seen Barca win four and draw one, scoring 16 goals and conceding none in that time.

And with the Catalan giants losing just one of their last 17 games – winning 15 and drawing once – Elche can expect another hammering from Messi and co.
