How Maribor will react to the death of two reserve players in a car crash is anyone’s guess. The tragedy could give them a cause or make them struggle to get up for a game so soon afterwards.
I’ve spent a bit of time looking at the Europa League card and it’s a big one. I’d look longer but need to concentrate some time on my weekend tips, anteposts and Daily Record column which returns to normal.
So I’m putting up two low-stakes trebles – it’s not a tournament to take too many risks. The Top Treble starts with Hertha Berlin at Brondby. The Bundesliga side won just 1-0 at home but with better fitness should see off a team who lost against Hibs in Denmark in the last round.
Add Serie outft Sassuolo who will play their first European match at home. They’re level 1-1 with Swiss side Lucerne and should finish them – could be goals here too so it’s on the btts treble.
Complete the Top Treble with Rio Ave at home to Slavia Prague. The Portuguese outfit drew 0-0 in the Czech Republic and should use home advantage to battle through.
