SUNDAY was pretty much a repeat of Saturday for me with a 5-2 Top Treble winner and a Super single loser.
The win – thanks to Arsenal, Stoke and Sociedad dc – just about cancelled out the loss and if you followed all my advice on the day you’d be up thanks to a both teams to score treble with only Man United beating for a 12-1 fourfold.
My Super Single choice has as usual been criticised after the event but the reasoning behind Atletico Madrid not to lose at Barcelona was sound.
However, poor defending for once cost Diego Simeone’s side who are normally so strong in that aspect and when you give the likes of Neymar, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi chances they’ll punish you.
I’ve looked closely at tonight’s games at Hamilton, Coventry, Vallecano and Valenciennes v Sochaux in French Ligue 2 and there is a separate preview of Hamilton-Dundee United.
My conclusions are I can’t call the Hamilton match until I see the effect of managr Alex Neil leaving but both to score at a best 13-19 with 888sport is likely at New Douglas Park.
I would have been on League One leaders Swindon if it wasn’t for the fact their two best players Massimi Luango and Yasir Kasim are at the Asian and African Cup respectively.
Coventry are on an improved run and have gone six games unbeaten so for me I’d be looking to put Swindon or draw on an accumulator as it pays no bigger than 1-3 at Ladbrokes.
Rayo and Cordoba haven’t met in La Liga but Vallecano won the last two meetings at a lower level. Their home record this season is poor with five defeats but they’re still mid-table compared to Cordoba who are fighting relegation and have won just one of their last 12 on the road.
It’s not clearcut and Rayo look a little short at 8-11 at William Hill but I’m chancing them on a Top Treble as I go for three wins in a row.
For the Super Single I’ve focused on Sochaux who put an unbeaten away record on the line at Valenciennes. The home men are missing Sigamary Diarra and Jerome Guihoata are both at the Africa Cup of Nations while striker star Opa Nguette is injured along with defender Saliou Ciss.
Sochaux, aiming to go joint third with a win, have lost just once in 15 games and their away record is five wins and three draws from eight games. They have lost keeper Pape Camara to the Africa Cup but his deputy Yohann Pele is a capable deputy.
I’ve seen plenty of tips for Sochaux to win and are a best 12-5 at McBookie and BetVictor but as the Super Single needs a lift I’m taking the safer option of draw no bet at 5-4 with the same firms.
