LAST weekend was a sore one with both trebles a goal short and today’s attempt to make amends kicks off in the Bundesliga.
The battle at the bottom sees Werder Bremen host Augsburg in a clash that should provide goals. Five of Bremen’s last six have seen both teams score while for Augsburg it’s six in a row – none of which they’ve won – and btts here pays 10-17 at Unibet.
At the other end of the table Monchengladbach are hot on the heels of third-placed Hertha Berlin in the race for the final Champions League spot and today Andre Schubert’s men head to Ingolstadt.
Both sides are coming off impressive wins last week and Ingolstadt’s 3-0 success over Schalke was their first match in six that hadn’t brought up btts. Gladbach’s last four away games have seen goals at both ends so take both to net in this one at 7-8 with Unibet.
I’m completing the treble with Barcelona’s trip to Sociedad where the Catalan giants haven’t won since 2007. Barca have Luis Suarez suspended and are expected to rotate with one eye on the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Atletico Madrid in midweek.
Both have scored in five of Barca’s last six visits to the Anoeta Stadium and I fancy same again today at 4-5 with bet365.
In Italy, Sinisa Mihajlovic is clinging on to his job as AC Milan boss and it’s rumoured a heavy defeat at home to Juventus tonight could seal his fate.
Milan are winless in four and have lost the last six meetings with Juve who are unbeaten in 21 Serie A games, winning 20. Juve’s price of 6-5 at Coral attracts while erring on the side of caution they are 8-15 draw no bet with Coral.
Dutch table-toppers Ajax have scored at least twice in their last nine outings and can continue the trend at bottom club Cambuur while French side St Etienne can bag the points at home to alread-relegated Troyes.
Both Teams to Score Treble
Werder Bremen v Augsburg (2.30pm)
Ingolstadt v Monchengladbach (2.30pm)
Sociedad v Barcelona (7.30pm)
Juventus draw no bet (7.45pm)
Ajax to score 2+ (6.45pm)
St Etienne (7pm)
