IT’S been a pretty slow week but there are some decent games to look at on Friday.
In Scotland there is the Highland derby between Ross County and Inverness and while stats say there should be plenty of goals I wonder if nerves will play a part with ICT needing a result in their desperate fight to beat the drop. I’ll post a separate preview.
Having clinched promotion to the Premier League Newcastle head to Cardiff and this could depend on how much the players have partied and if Rafael Benitez rests players. They can still win the title but it’s a long shot.
Juventus are close to retaining their Serie A crown and head to Atalanta where they have won their last five. I fancy Juve to win again and they’re a best price of 23-20 at betfair. Atalanta though have a goal in them and best bet could be over 2.5 at 6-5 with BetStars.
Bayer Leverkusen v Schalke looks a tight one in the Bundesliga and Lyon could win at an Angers side who might still be celebrating their passage to the French Cup Final.
There are the usual Dutch and French lower-league games to look at as well as League of Ireland matches and watch out for tips on these from Greg, Mr Orange, Sean Ireland and others.
As usual at this time of year I’m concentrating on Saturday’s columns for the Daily Record but I’ve picked out a both to score treble. The Ross Co-ICT one is reasoned in the post and briefly Atalanta are capable of scoring at home against a tough Juve defence and this season they lost 3-2 and 3-1 in Turin.
Cork v Bray in Ireland is interesting. The home side have won 10 out of 10 but Bray lie third with 12 goals in five games on the road. This could be Cork’s toughest test of the season and Bray should at least score.
Thursday’s treble was beaten by Anderlecht’s surprise defeat at home to Charleroi with the other two coming in.
