Continental breakfast: 5 tips from Sunday's European football
These picks from Germany, Italy and Spain make up your 12/1 Sunday accumulator.
Hoffenheim to beat Freiburg –
Despite losing at Ludogorets in the Europa League, Hoffenheim are still worth backing on Sunday.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side have won back-to-back league games and are one of just three sides yet to be beaten in the Bundesliga.
Freiburg have only picked up four points and are still searching for their first win.
Lazio to beat Sassuolo –
After notching their sixth victory in seven in all competitions in midweek, it should be business as usual for Lazio.
Simone Inzaghi’s side have won two out of three at the Stadio Olimpico, including a 4-1 demolition of AC Milan.
Sassuolo, who have lost four out of five, are in for a rough ride.
Inter Milan to beat Benevento –
Bottom side Benevento have lost all six league games so far this season and have failed to score in five.
With a 6-0 defeat to Napoli and 4-0 loss to Roma in their last three, this one could be another demolition job.
Inter are unbeaten in Serie A and have dropped just two points so far.
RB Leipzig to beat Cologne –
Cologne’s dreadful start to the season is set to continue.
The Billy Goats are bottom of the Bundesliga with just a draw to show from their opening six matches.
Leipzig have won three out of five and won’t claim an easier three points all season.
Valencia to beat Athletic Bilbao –
Athletic Bilbao lost 1-0 at home to Zorya Luhansk in the Europa League in midweek to prolong their disappointing run of form.
That was their third defeat in four and fifth match without a win.
Valencia hammered Malaga 5-0 in their last match at the Mestalla and, along with Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, are one of just three teams still unbeaten in La Liga.
