February 25th: Sunday’s European Double – 4/1 Special, Betting Tips & Predictions

Although this season’s EFL Cup final between Chelsea and Liverpool might steal centre stage on Sunday afternoon, there are a string of heavyweight European showdowns on the cards.

So, for those of you who are looking to stick on a Sunday flutter, we have found a couple of intriguing betting markets that are worth keeping an eye out for.

16:30 Borussia Dortmund vs Hoffenheim

Although Borussia Dortmund might still find themselves facing a real scrap in their bid to punch another lucrative top-four finish this season, the German giants are enjoying a recent purple patch. While Sunday’s hosts might have accepted that a title charge is firmly off the table in 2024, BVB are unbeaten in all of their previous 10 appearances across all competitions.

Getting their Champions League knockout stage adventure underway with a 1-1 stalemate away at Dutch heavyweights PSV in midweek, Edin Terzic’s men will certainly be excited to make a return to domestic Germany here.

Last seen at Signal Iduna Park claiming a 3-0 romp against Europa League outfit Freiburg, the one-time West Ham coach has seen his squad win back-to-back showdowns in front of their own supporters by an aggregate score of 6-1.

Looking to make a domestic statement this weekend, attacking talisman Donyell Male will certainly have a leading role to play here.

Along with bagging a Champions League strike away at PSV earlier in the week, the Dutch international has now registered five goals in as many appearances across all competitions.

While Hoffenheim might have come flying out of the traps when opening up the 2023/24 campaign, Sunday’s guests are in the midst of what has become a real Bundesliga nightmare.

Continuing to slide their way down the table and coming under some mounting scrutiny, Pellegrino Matarazzo’s men have remarkably claimed just a single victory from any of their previous 14 straight domestic appearances across all formats.

With that extended crisis stemming all the way back to October 28th, the former Stuttgart boss has also seen his downbeat squad muster just two points on their travels over the past four months.

17:00 Lecce vs Inter Milan

While Inter Milan might have suffered Champions League final heartbreak last season, the Italian icons are enjoying another fairytale this time around. In the midst of what has become a major purple patch and with the mood around the San Siro at a red-hot high, there is no doubt that Sunday’s hosts will be smelling the chance to make another statement here.

Opening up their Champions League knockout stage adventure with a 1-0 victory against Spanish heavyweights Atletico Madrid, Simone Inzaghi’s men have won all of their previous nine straight appearances across all competitions.

Opening this weekend’s fixtures holding a commanding nine-point buffer at the top of the Serie A table, Inter Milan are tipped as a landslide contender to reclaim their domestic crown in 2024.

Last seen in top-flight action storming their way to a routine 4-0 win against Salernitana, the former Lazio boss has also seen his squad gain a fearsome reputation for their continued success on the road.

In fact, Inter have won all of their last four straight domestic showdowns away from the San Siro by an aggregate score of 11-3.

On the flip side, once again looking over their shoulder at a looming relegation scrap this year, Lecce find themselves at the heart of another Serie A struggle.

Coming off the back of a routine 2-0 loss at the hands of Torino last week, Sunday’s hosts have lost five of their previous six top-flight appearances and they will be set for another monumental challenge here.

Likewise, signing off January with what could turn out to be a costly 2-1 defeat against Genoa, Lecce have recorded just a pair of victories across any competition since way back on September 22nd.

Suffering a 2-0 defeat when they travelled to the San Siro on December 23rd, we are expecting a similar outcome this weekend.
