HIBS got there in the end to make it a winning start to the season for Greg’s nap.
It’s all about one game for him today and it comes from the Swiss Super – a ground he’s visited to watch St Johnstone in Europe.
Luzerne v Basel (12.45pm)
Both these sides have claimed maximum points from their opening league matches – there’s only one team here though I see making it three from three and that’s the visitors. Luzerne were involved in Europa league action on Thursday night and suffered a 3-0 hammering away at Sassualo.
Basel are by far the league’s best team and have won 8 of the last 9 meetings between the sides! This would be a tough game at the best of times for Luzerne but given they played on Thiraday and Basel have had a full week’s rest and have started the season all guns blazing I’m taking them to continue that.
There’s been over 2.5 goals in the last nine meetings between the sides and with Luzerne seeing over 2.5 in 10 of their last 11 league games and Basel seeing over 2.5 in seven of their last eight away from home. Going for some small stakes in goals here.
Back Basel to win (17-20,) (NAP)
Back over 1.5 first-half goals 5-4
Over 3.5 match goals 5-4
Back Basel over 2.5 team goals 2-1
Greg adds: “Had a lot of success backing late goals last season, Newcastle being one of those sides when playing at home and the other being QPR.
“QPR are in action today against Leeds at 12pm so going to have small stakes on then to continue the trend from last season. Back a goal to be scored after 69 mins 5-6.”
