IT’S been a good weekend for Greg and he’s hoping to finish on a Sunday best.
He says: “It’s derby day today and it’s the match everyone has been waiting for … Rapid Vienna v Austria Vienna haha! More of that one later but I’ll start with the low-key contest at Hampden.
You’ll see I have two Naps which is controversial but really fancy both. So take your pick – or risk the double.
Rangers v Celtic (12pm)
I’ve not had much of an opinion on this match despite being surrounded by Old Firm fans. The general view is this should be closer than last time with Celtic edging it 2-1 or 3-1. I don’t disagree with that view. Rangers are missing key personnel and the reality is Celtic have better players. Let’s not forget Rangers are playing their trade against the likes of Dunbarton and Alloa and defensively haven’t been too clever. Celtic should manage to find the net a few times against a suspect Rangers defence! Not the biggest of prices but should land.

Leicester v West Ham (1.30pm)
It feels like Clydebank were a senior club the last time Ranieri’s men conceded a goal – for me though all good things must come to an end and I’m taking West Ham to score. The Foxes have kept clean sheets in 8 of their last 10 which is incredible – they’ve not conceded in 5 but face a Hammers side who have scored in 11 consecutive matches against the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Man Utd and Spurs! Lecicester will need to score twice if they are to win today.

Rapid Vienna v Austria Vienna (3.30pm)
It’s that time of the season again – the Vienna Derby and if you trail back through the site’s archives I’ve probably tipped this gane for goals in each of the last 5 or 6 meetings over the last few seasons. The last 7 have ended over 2.5 goals and the only surprise last time was BTTS didn’t trap with Rapid winning 3-0. Going for goals again here.
