Saturday’s BTTS & Win treble is a tempting accumulator from action across Europe as we’re backing three teams to all end their respective home campaigns with a win.
However, we think there will be some cheer for the travelling fans in all three contests and are backing each of those away side s to score. With a chance to turn £10 into nearly £450, it’s got to be worth a punt.
Fingers crossed that the potential return of 4-4-2 is a sign.
Bayer Leverkusen V Hoffenheim. 2:30PM
Roger Schmidt’s Bayer Leverkusen are flying high in the Bundesliga table, winning each of their past five matches at the BayArena, and will be confident about ending their home campaign in fitting style against a spirited Hoffenheim.
The hosts haven’t conceded in any of those five recent home games but that sequence has to end soon and we fancy an away team with 18 goals on the road to find the target at some stage. However, Markus Gisdol’s side have leaked 27 from those 16 matches and also enter this clash on the back of just one win in six.
Hoffenheim do have some good attacking players in Kevin Volland and Anthony Modeste but their defence could struggle against the like of Bayer strikers Heung-Min Son, Stefan Kiesling and midfielder Hakan Calhanoglue.
Bayer have been brilliant at home in recent weeks and should claim another win here. However, we do think Hoffenheim can score.

Partick Thistle V Kilmarnock. 3PM
Our second selection comes from the SPL where struggling Kilmarnock are looking to end a seven game losing streak as they head to Firhill Road.
Unfortunately for Gary Locke’s visitors, they face a Partick side that has won four straight home matches and will be fully of confidence. Killie can take some inspiration from a 1-1 draw here earlier in the campaign, as well as the fact they’ve scored in each of those seven straight SPL defeats, but it’s likely we’ll see their woes continue.
Thistle have scored goals from multiple sources in recent weeks and Alan Archiebald will be eager to see his side put on an entertaining show in their final home game of the campaign. Expect a few goals from the hosts.
Nine of the last 10 meetings have ended in BTTS winners and we envisage plenty more drama at Firhill Road. On this occasion, though, we’re leaning towards a home win.

Nice V Lens. 8PM
Ligue 1 side Nice aren’t enjoying the best form towards the end of this campaign but should bounce back to winning ways as they welcome rock bottom Lens to the Allianz Riviera.
Nice haven’t won any of their last six home games but the last six have ended in BTTS winners so we’re predicting another dramatic clash here. Even more promising is the fact Lens have lost each of their past five away fixtures, but did manage to score in each of those matches.
The visitors are already relegated but Antoine Kombouare’s side does have enough attacking quality to pose a threat. Unfortunately, a defensive record of 35 conceded in 18 away games suggests that they will struggle at the back.
Lens will be desperate to score in their final away game of the season but they’re unlikely to claim a result. Home win.
