January 10th: Wednesday’s European Double – 5/1 Special, Tips & Predictions

As the likes of the EFL Cup and Coppa Italia make their respective returns in midweek, there are plenty of noteworthy fixtures from across the continent.

With a host of European heavyweights all featuring throughout Wednesday’s stacked schedule, we have found a couple of intriguing betting markets that are worth keeping an eye out for.

20:00 Liverpool vs Fulham

Although Liverpool might have eventually missed out on booking a lucrative Champions League ticket last season, Jurgen Klopp’s side have come roaring back in a stunning fashion. Firing on all cylinders and holding a three-point buffer at the top of the Premier League table, Wednesday’s hosts certainly find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high.

Picking up a major FA Cup scalp last weekend as they extended on their adventure thanks to a 2-0 victory away at Arsenal, the one-time Borussia Dortmund boss has seen his squad gain a string of plaudits.

Tipped as a standout Europa League contender in 2024 and with their sights set on making more history at Anfield, Klopp’s side have suffered just a single defeat from any of their previous 12 straight appearances across all competitions.

Likewise, not tasting a sole domestic defeat in front of their own supporters since way back in October 2022, Liverpool should be smelling a golden opportunity to pick up a decisive first leg advantage here.

Although Fulham might have sprung a heavyweight upset last week as they picked up a 2-1 victory against Arsenal, Marco Silva will have a real headache over his side’s extended issues away from Craven Cottage.

Last seen outside of west London getting hit with a 3-0 drumming at the hands of Bournemouth, the ex-Everton boss has seen his squad lose four of their last five showdowns on the road.

Suffering last-gasp heartbreak when they travelled to Anfield while in Premier League action back on December 3rd, Fulham will be bracing themselves for a stern examination on Wednesday night.

Although Silva’s men might fancy their chances of causing Liverpool’s defence some real questions here, they are rightfully tipped as an EFL Cup underdog this season.

20:00 AC Milan vs Atalanta

While AC Milan might be seeking a minor miracle in their bid to claim another Serie A crown this season, the Rossoneri are enjoying a real purple patch. Last seen putting in another thumping display as they cruised their way to a 3-0 romp away at Empoli, Wednesday’s hosts are sat firmly in pole position to punch another Champions League ticket in 2024.

Simply hoping to make up some ground in the title chase, Stefano Pioli’s side have collected 16 points from their previous six appearances across all competitions.

Opening the New Year with a stellar 4-1 victory against Cagliari, AC Milan have also found a real clinical edge in the final third.

With their recent flurry underlined by a shock 2-1 win away at Premier League outfit Newcastle on December 13th, the Italian icons should be excited to turn their attention back to Coppa Italia duties in midweek.

Winning all of their last four showdowns at the San Siro by an aggregate score of 11-2, Pioli’s men will be looking to cash in on an Atalanta squad that have shown some extended issues on the road.

Although La Dea might have suffered just a single defeat from any of their previous seven showdowns across all fronts, Wednesday’s guests are rightfully tipped as an underdog contender here.

Signing off 2023 with a 1-0 loss at the hands of Bologna, Gian Piero Gasperini’s side have won just a pair of their last eight contests away from the Gewiss Stadium – a run that stems all the way back to October 5th.

Likewise, falling to a 2-0 defeat when they last travelled to the San Siro 11 months ago, we are predicting a similar outcome.
