With the European club competitions reaching the business end of the group stages, we asked our team of experts for their best bets ahead of the games on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

The result is this huge 376/1 sevenfold accumulator, which you can back below.

376/1 Accumulator From Our Experts

Xabi Alonso made the dream start in his first Bundesliga game as Bayer Leverkusen boss and he can continue that in his Champions League bow. Bayer beat Schalke 4-0 on Saturday to bounce back from their 2-0 loss at Porto and they look well placed to get revenge on the Portuguese outfit.

The visitors have lost two of their first three Champions League games so far, including a 4-0 loss to Club Brugge. Porto have lost four of their last five matches in this competition and they’re winless across their last seven visits to Germany, so back Bayer at 23/20.

Zurich have lost their opening three Europa League group stage matches and it’s likely to be four when they go to PSV. The Eindhoven side hammered Zurich 5-1 in the reverse fixture and another comfortable victory can follow at the Philips Stadion.

It’s nine games without a win for FCZ and their last triumph was a 1-0 Europa L:eague qualifying victory over a ten-man Hearts side back in August. The Swiss outfit look completely outclassed in this section and backing PSV to be leading at half-time and full-time is the play.

I’ll go with Borussia Dortmund to beat Sevilla with more than two goals in the match.

Dortmund eased past their Spanish opponents 4-1 last week and it is difficult to see Sevilla bouncing back, especially as BVB came from two goals down to earn a draw against Bayern Munich on Saturday.

That was the sixth of their last seven games to feature at least three goals and they can virtually confirm their progress against a team who have won just once in 11 matches in all competitions this season.

Sevilla have conceded at least twice in six of those matches and their defence cannot be trusted.

Bookmakers do not seem to be giving Club Brugge the respect they deserve in this season’s Champions League and the Belgians look a good bet to avoid defeat against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.

Brugge sit top of Group B after recording wins to nil against Bayer Leverkusen (1-0), Porto (4-0) and Atletico (2-0) and have been one of the stories of the group stage.

Given their red-hot start, a draw away to Atletico would suffice and they have the defensive prowess to keep tabs on their La Liga opponents in the Spanish capital.

Benfica or draw double chance is worth a bet on Tuesday when they travel to Paris St-Germain on matchday four of the Champions League.

The sides drew 1-1 in a hard-fought contest in Lisbon last week, when PSG had seven shots on target to Benfica’s six, and the star-studded French champions could be frustrated once again.

Benfica won 2-1 at Juventus on matchday two and they also had some impressive results on the road last season, drawing with Barcelona and Liverpool and beating Ajax 1-0 in Amsterdam to seal their progress to the quarter-finals.

I like the look of Real Betis to beat Roma at home in the Europa League. Betis have been flying in Europe’s second-tier competition, winning each of their three outings, including a 2-1 win at Roma last time out.

A fourth successive win would put them on the verge of sealing a spot in the knockout phase and they can take great confidence from their home record this season.

Betis boast the best home record in La Liga this season, winning all four of their engagements and conceding just once, while they beat Ludogorets at the Estadio Benito Villamarin in the Europa League.

Roma, meanwhile, lost their only away fixture in the competition and Ludogorets and could struggle when they head to Spain.

It may seem surprising as Arsenal are the flavour of the month right now but 6/1 on Bodo Glimt getting the better of the Gunners on Thursday seems too big to ignore.

Yes, Glimt were beaten 3-0 only last week but that was at the Emirates and the Norwegians are a different beast at home on their artificial surface – just ask Roma – they lost twice at the Aspmyra Stadion last season, one by a 6-1 scoreline, and they still went on to win the Europa Conference League.

There is a good chance Mikel Arteta will rotate after Sunday’s win over Liverpool and the price is a big enough temptation – while 13/8 with a +1 start might be for the less brave souls.
