IT was a hectic day and I was feeling a bit left out after the likes of Jordan, Greg and Desmond put good winners.
That left myself and Scott Allot on the naughty step. I thought I was getting out of jail with my Euro treble but Celta Vigo failed to net the winner that would have made it a just about break even day.
Luckily I was on Johnb’s big winner in the big race – and anyone on this thread who hasn’t spotted his form should take a look.
Scott was also unlucky – he was a goal short on his Euro treble, a goal short on his btts treble and saw a winner go in the wrong net at El Clasico.
Jordan was the star man with two bets and two winners but that honour so nearly went to Desmond who was a St Johnstone goal away from landing a 134-1 goals 7-timer.
It was a 20-21 single and 8-1 double for Jordan. Desmond’s 2+ double won at 3-1 and his over 2.5 goals treble landed at 9-2. But Saints beat his both to score double and therefore his advised sevenfold.
Talking of Saints – Greg went against his team with a nap that came up thanks to Dundee United scoring in the first half. He also tipped a late goal at Bolton v Reading.
On Sunday it’s all about Leicester who have the chance to go seven points clear at the top by beating Southampton. It won’t be easy but I’m on the Foxes to edge it with Jame Vardy likely to be on target.
Man United v Everton is tougher to call but there should be goals and that should also be the case in the Football League Trophy between Barnsley and Oxford at Wembley with Oxford’s Kemar Roofe worth a look as a scorer after his FA Cup exploits.
In Scotland Aberdeen should take care of Hamilton at home to keep the pressure on Celtic in the race for the title.
Last night I suggested my Top Treble would come from three out of Inter Milan, Napoli, Hoffenheim, Athletic Bilbao, Sevilla and Ajax. Luckily the Bilbao and Napoli games were early and they’ve been ruled out.
I watched highlights of Bilbao’s first half against Granada and they should have been three or four up – missing a penalty and a host of chances. So to see Granada nick a point with a late equaliser was a surprise and Napoli’s result at Udinese wasn’t anticipated.
I’m staying with Sevilla, who have won their last 13 at home in La Liga, against struggling Sociedad and Inter who have been in good form and should outscore their rivals.
Complete the treble with Ajax to score 2+ at home to Zwolle. The leaders have netted at least two in their last six games and won 2-0 at PEC earlier in the season.
My both to score treble that starts with second v first in Austria – Rapid Vienna v Salzburg. Twelve of the last 13 meetings have seen both score as have the last six in the capital.
Add Inter v Torino which is taken more on recent form than h2h. Inter’s last three have seen both score with five of their last six going over 2.5 goals. Torino games have been goal crazy recently with 10 in their last two and both have scored in four of their previous six.
Complete the treble with Lorient v Lyon. Both have scored in the last four meetings in Brittany while Lyon have banged in 11 in three and conceded in three of their last four.
For the Super Single I considered Leicester and Hoffenheim, also Villarreal at Eibar, but in the end I’ve plumped for Roma at Lazio.
Roma won eight Serie A matches in a row before losing to Real Madrid in the Champions League then drawing at home to Inter.
They should get bacl on track against city rivals Lazio whose coach Stefano Pioli has an injury headache with five defenders out including regulars Santiago Gentiletti, Stefan Radu and Abdoulay Konko. Midfielder Ricardo Kishna is also missing and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Dusan Basta are doubts.
There is always a risk taking a result in a derby but Roma are undefeated in five against Lazio and have won their last four away matches. Roma have no new injury problems and it could be an emotional day for Francesco Totti who is likely to given some game time for what is likely to be his last derby.
