GREG has scoured Europe to pick out two tips for tonight as he looks to head into the weekend on a high.
There’s no Nap or NB though and he’s advising small stakes.
It’s bottom v top in Ukraine – the Kiev Giants are having a terrific season and it’s really just a case of how many they will win by. In contrast Metalurg are absolutely terrible, with just three points to show for their efforts. Matches between the two are usually high scoring but having checked the handicaps for this match, the bookies have looked at the table and rightly made Kiev hot hot favourites. However although Kiev will win this I’m not convinced they are going to win by 5 clear goals. The hosts have only lost three home games over the last 10 years by that margin ( 170 matches) Kiev likewise have only ever beaten three teams away from home by 5 goals in the same period. I’m taking the hosts to keep the margin of defeat respectable.
Back Metalurg +5 on the handicap (4-6, Coral)
1860 Munich v Frankfurt (5.30pm)
Frankfurt are turning into the 1-1 draw specialists and with 1860 over their early-season horror shows both teams are capable of netting here.
Back both teams to score (39-40, BetvVictor)
