Football tips: Tap in our 18/1 treble for Sunday’s European ties

Our European footie tipster Paddy Murphy has picked a top trio of picks for you.



14:00 Atalanta v Lazio: Atalanta to Win and Both Teams to Score

Atalanta are unbeaten over their last 10 Serie A matches, with six wins and four draws. Lazio are in good form too, as they’ve only lost two of their last 10, winning six and drawing two. The home side have the far superior record on their own turf though, they’re undefeated over their last five – winning four and drawing one. Lazio have won just two of their last five away matches, drawing two and losing one.

Atalanta have taken the spoils in three out of the last five meetings between the pair at the Stadio di Bergamo in all competitions, with Lazio winning one. Three of those matches also saw Over 3.5 goals and three saw Both Teams to Score occurring.

Both teams are in great goal-scoring form, the home side are averaging 2.44 goals per game and Lazio are bagging 1.78 on their league travels. We should see a good match here and while both are in good form, Atalanta swing it thanks to their home record.

17:00 Napoli v Parma: Napoli to Win and Both Teams To Score

Napoli’s league form has seen them winning three and losing two over their five most recent matches. Meanwhile, Parma have now gone 11 matches without a win and indeed, from a possible 33 points they took just four.

Parma succeeded in this fixture last season to everyone’s surprise, but it’s quite unlikely for lightning to strike twice here. Napoli are enjoying some good form and making their way back up the table. At home, they’ve won three of their last five in the league, drawing one and losing one and they’re scoring a healthy 2.78 per home match.

They don’t tend to keep many clean sheets though, and Parma – despite their troubles – are averaging 1.22 goals per away Serie A match and have scored in seven of their nine away league matches this season. Napoli should win here, but the value says that Parma should get at least one.

20:00 Barcelona v Athletic Bilbao: Barcelona to Win and Both Teams To Score

It doesn’t look like Barcelona can catch La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid at this stage of the season, however, they’re just three points behind Real Madrid in second and have the superior goal difference. A win here could see them possibly take second spot, if Real mess up against Levante on Saturday afternoon.

Barca have now gone nine matches without defeat in the league, winning seven of them. However, Bilbao have won just two of their last five and, on the road, haven’t won any of their last seven away La Liga matches.

In fact, from a possible 21 points over those games they chalked up a disappointing three. Barca have kept the visitors scoreless in four out of their last five league meetings at the Nou Camp. If we count all matches at the Nou Camp, they’ve kept them scoreless in three of their last five.

However, Barca aren’t keeping so many clean sheets this campaign and Bilbao have netted at least one in all five of their most recent away matches, while the Catalans have kept just two clean sheets over their last eight La Liga matches.
