THE football season is back for real and Greg is targeting some of his favourite leagues tonight.
He starts with old friends in Estonia then heads to French Ligue 2 which produced a barrage of 0-0 draw on the opening weekend.
Parnu v Tarvas (5pm)
The bottom two meet and it’s not often you’ll see me backing Parnu to win but they seem to have turned the corner and have collected 7 of their 10 wins over the last 6 weeks. That includes defeating table-topping Levedia and getting a point against a third-best Kalju. The visitors are horrendous, One solitary point from their 21 league games. Parnu have won 5 of the last 6 meetings between the sides and should be looking to make it another win given their upturn in fortunes and how terrible Tarvas are.
Auxerre v Ajaccio (7pm)
Was on Ajaccio last week in their season opener and despite battering Brest couldn’t find away past their keeper who had one of those games where he saved everything and there was an open-goal miss from Ajaccio late on. Last week’s opening fixtures yielded an embarrassing 7 goals with 6 matches ending 0-0. Expecting Ajaccio to be up at the top end of the league come May and they are good enough to avoid defeat to Auxerre especially if they play the way they did last season.
Ajaccio not to lose
Double pays 23-10
Fulham v Newcastle (7.45pm)
Every man and their dog appear to be on Rafa’s men. For me I’ll stick to goals and a market that has served me well when Fulham are at home is a late goal to be scored. Newcastle are the late goal kings at St Jamess’ Park but Fulham are close behind. This could be right with Newcastle scoring late on to seal the win.
