It’s another huge night of domestic and European action and we’re looking to bash the bookies with this tasty 11/2 treble at Betfred.
We’re backing these three teams to all claim the three points they desire and are hopeful that this will be a hassle free winner to get our week up and running in style.
AS Monaco V Arsenal
Overturning a 3-1 deficit might be one step beyond Arsenal’s reach, but the Gunners are set to give it a real good go against Monaco and Wenger’s men should at least leave the Stade Louis II with some sort of pride restored.
The away goals of course means Arsenal require at least three goals, which is a tough task in any Champions League away game. However, it does mean we know Arsene Wenger’s men need to attack. Meanwhile, the cushion gives Monaco something to hold onto and Leonardo Jardim’s men will probably be quite happy to lose 1-0.
Monaco will still want to score as it will give them the added comfort of knowing three Arsenal goals would only take it to extra-time. Even if the hosts do score, though, there is every chance that the Gunners could still score two – or even three.
In all honesty, progression might be too difficult but we certainly wouldn’t rule the Gunners out completely following their recent domestic form. Whatever happens, Wenger will demand a second-leg win as the bare minimum.

Wycombe Wanderers V Accrington Stanley
With just 10 games of the League Two season remaining, Gareth Ainsworth’s Chairboys are looking great value for automatic promotion. The home side will be confident about taking another step towards League One with victory over an out-of-form Accrington Stanley.
Wycombe have been pretty solid at Adams Park, where they’ve only lost four times all season, and should be very confident of securing another three points here. With Burton Albion not in action until Wednedsay, a win would see the Wanderers climb up to first – even if that is only on a temporary basis.
Meanwhile, Stanley have seemingly ran out of steam as John Coleman’s honeymoon period comes to an end. Fortunately, the initial impact means that the visitors are unlikely to go down, but you cannot overlook the fact they’ve secured just one point from the last available 12.
It was a 1-1 draw when the sides met at the Store First in December. However, the gulf in quality should show at Adams Park.

Chester V Dartford
It has been a very decent second half to Chester’s first season back in the Conference and Steve Burr’s men still have a chance, albeit very slim, of reaching the play-offs. Even if they do fall short of that aim, they’ll be expected to register three points over struggling Dartford.
The financially troubled visitors are now 11 points adrift of safety and are almost certain to be plying their trade in a lower division next term. A return of 11 away defeats has been central to their on-field problems and we cannot envisage them causing any real problems for the vastly improved hosts.
Dartford have shipped 34 away goals this term, which will have Chester’s attacking players salivating in anticipation. The Blues have already won nine times at the Swansway stadium this season and the likes of Sean McConville and Craig Hobson will hope to fire them to double figures here.
The visitors might put up a fight, but we cannot see past a home win.
