PERSISTENCE paid off for French bottom club Troyes last weekend as they bagged their first league win of the season at the 22nd attempt.
Despite their lack of wins there’s been no shortage of goals for the strugglers recently with a total of 15 in their last three Ligue 1 outings. Five of their last six have seen both teams score and the same stat applies to today’s visitors Nantes, so back btts here at 13-15 with Unibet.
Add the meeting of two free-scoring Dutch sides at 5-8 with 10bet. AZ have rattled 10 in four games and they travel to an NEC side who have netted in every home Eredivise game this season.
Complete the treble with Werder Bremen, the side with the worst home record in the Bundesliga, against decent travallers Hertha Berlin at 4-5 with BetVictor.
In the big La Liga title clash, I can’t see past a Barcelona win (8-15, BetVictor) at home to Atletico Madrid. Diego Simeone’s men have the meanest defence in the league with just eight goals conceded in 21 games but Barca have the firepower in Messi, Suarez and Neymar to break them down.
Villarreal should net two or more at 8-11 with bet365 against strugglers Granada who are leaking goals at an alarming rate and Leverkusen can win by more than win against Bundesliga bottom club Hannover who have lost four on the bounce. Leverkusen have covered the -1 handicap in seven of the last eight home meetings with Hannover and are 3-4 at Boylesports to repeat the feat today.

Troyes v Nantes (7pm)
