I WAS glad to kick off the season with a 4-1 fourfold winner yesterday and today's treble starts with a Swiss team on a roll.
Young Boys claimed a Europa League qualifying scalp in midweek by knocking out Dynamo Kiev on away goals thanks to a terrific 2-0 home win.
It's back to league business today and their two domestic outings have seen them win both, scoring six and conceding none, including an opening-day victory over champs Basel.
Visitors Lausanne have one point from two games and I fancy Young Boys to keep the momentum going. Four of their last five home meetings with Lausanne have seen Young Boys win and over 2.5 goals and same again today pays 19-20 at Ladbrokes.
Add Marseille to make a winning start in Ligue 1 at home to Dijon who survived by the skin of their teeth last season. Marseille are strengthened by decent summer signings such as Valere Germain and Luiz Gustavo and are 2-5 at bet365 for the win.
Completing the treble are Sporting Lisbon at 1-2 with Sportingbet in their Portuguese league opener at top-flight new boys Aves. Sporting have crucially kept hold of goal machine Bas Dost and added centre-back Jeremy Mathieu from Barcelona after losing a couple of defenders.
