Below are five sides who look good for a win this weekend, as we focus on five games from across the continent to make up our accumulator.

Sunday, 3.30pm

Boavista have made a bright start to the new Primeira Liga season, including a dramatic opening victory over champions Benfica. They took out the Eagles 3-2 before winning 4-1 at Portimonense last weekend, so they look set for a strong campaign.

Boavista can extend their winning start, as they host Casa Pia on Sunday afternoon. 

The visitors were beaten 2-1 by Sporting Lisbon in their last game, while they lost nine times on their travels last season.

It is hard to see them matching a Boavista that has been rampant going forward, so take the Panthers to continue their perfect start.

Sunday, 4.30pm

Barcelona bounced back from a 0-0 draw at Getafe by beating Cadiz 2-0 last weekend. Much was made about the Catalans’ poor start on the road, but they won at nine of last season’s top 10 and they can pick up a victory at Villarreal.

The hosts have lost a string of talented players this summer, with Pau Torres, Samuel Chukwueze and Nicolas Jackson departing. 

They started with a 2-1 home defeat to Real Betis and Barcelona can add to their issues.

Sunday, 5.30pm

Juventus are not the most forward-thinking football club under Max Allegri’s watch, but at least optimism appears to be returning to Turin — the Old Lady won 3-0 at Udinese on Monday as they bid to recapture Lo Scudetto.

Bologna fell 2-0 at home to another title-hopeful in AC Milan earlier this week. 

They have lost on nine of their last 10 visits to Juventus, so the Turin giants are worth backing to continue their winning start.

Sunday, 8pm

Lyon have made a terrible start to the new campaign, losing 2-1 at Strasbourg before being thumped 4-1 at home to Montpellier.

OL look a shade of their former selves after losing Moussa Dembele, Castello Lukeba, Houssem Aouar and Malo Gusto this summer.

Lyon already had problems last term, losing seven of their nine away trips to top-half sides.

They have also been beaten in four of their last five league visits to Nice, so all signs point to the visitors’ poor start getting even worse. 

Sunday, 8.30pm

Real Betis set out their top-four ambitions with a 2-1 win at Villarreal, while they held Atletico Madrid to a 0-0 draw last weekend. 

That bright start can continue, with Manuel Pellegrini’s side looking like serious contenders for a Champions League spot this season.

Betis have made some good summer signings, adding depth with the likes of Ayoze Perez, Hector Bellerin, Marc Barta and Isco arriving.

They have been a consistent top-six side since Pellegrini’s arrival and they appear to have made a step up ahead of this trip north.

Athletic Club have lost four of their last five home LaLiga games, including a 1-0 defeat to Betis in May, while Bilbao have won just once across the last six meetings of these two sides, so the visitors are great value for a victory.
