March 3rd: Sunday’s European Double – 7/1 Special, Betting Tips & Predictions

While the Manchester derby might steal most of Sunday’s headlines, we have a stacked schedule from across Europe’s elite this weekend.

With a host of eye-catching affairs from the likes of Ligue 1 and Serie A, we have taken a look at a pair of intriguing Sunday betting markets that are available.

14:00 Brest vs Le Havre

While Brest might have spent the majority of last season looking over their shoulder at a looming Ligue 1 relegation scrap, Sunday’s hosts have enjoyed a stunning domestic flurry this time around. In the midst of what has been a history-making flurry and with the mood in Eric Roy’s camp at a real high, the Pirates will certainly be smelling the chance to make another statement here.

Remarkably opening this weekend’s fixtures sat second in the top-flight table and with their sights now firmly set on securing a famous Champions League ticket in 2024, the Reds are rightfully tipped as a standout contender on Sunday afternoon.

Last seen putting in another stellar display as they cruised their way to a 3-0 victory away at Strasbourg, Brest are unbeaten in all of their previous 12 straight Ligue 1 appearances.

With that remarkable purple patch stemming all the way back to November 5th, the one-time Nice boss will also be excited by his side’s stunning success on home soil.

It should also be highlighted, along with collecting 13 points from their previous five Ligue 1 showdowns at the Stade Francis Le Ble, Brest have not shipped a single goal in front of their own supporters in almost 500 minutes of action.

On the flip side, while Le Havre might have made their top-flight return this season, Sunday’s guests are enduring a real domestic struggle.

Getting this weekend’s fixtures underway holding just a two-point buffer from slipping into the relegation zone, Luka Elsner’s side have lost all of their previous four domestic appearances across all competitions.

Likewise, last seen on their travels slumping to a routine 3-0 drumming at the hands of Lille, Le Havre have also notched just a single goal in any of their previous three Ligue 1 showdowns.

14:00 Empoli vs Cagliari

Although Empoli might be seeking a real Serie A miracle in their bid to punch a top-half finish among Italy’s elite, Sunday’s hosts are enjoying a recent flurry. Skyrocketing themselves away from a potential relegation scrap in 2024, Davide Nicola’s men should find the mood in their camp at a season-high.

Last seen putting in an eye-catching display as they clinched a 3-2 victory away at Sassuolo, the Blues are unbeaten in all of their previous six Serie A appearances and they have found a major clinical edge.

With their domestic purple patch underlined by a 3-1 win against Salernitana on February 9th, the former Genoa boss will e smelling another golden opportunity in Florence.

If Empoli are to make another Serie A statement this weekend, then the red-hot M’Baye Niang will certainly have a leading role to play here.

Once again finding the net against Sassuolo last week and making a stunning immediate impact since arriving from Turkish outfit Adana Demirspor during January’s transfer window, the Senegal international has got on the scoresheet in all of his first three appearances.

Although Cagliari might have eventually snatched a 1-1 stalemate against defending champions Napoli last week, Sunday’s guests have drastically struggled to find any kind of stability this season.

Still battling it out in the drop zone and tipped as a leading relegation contender in 2024, Claudio Ranieri has seen his downbeat squad muster just a pair of points from any of their previous six top-flight appearances.

It should also be highlighted, along with a 4-0 hammering against Roma last month, Cagliari have failed to muster a single Serie A victory on their travels this season.
