PSV’S late fightback against CSKA Moscow made one out of two Super Singles and a small loss on the night.
Annan beat Inverurie Locos in their William Hill Scottish Cup replay but failed to cover the -1 handicap which is to the credit of the battling Highland League outfit.
My 1pt Top Treble was a disappointing loser mainly due to Galatasaray only drawing at home to Astana which to be fair to them was what they needed.
On the forum the Betting Club bet got off to a winner and the £10 to £100 challenge is still going after Atletico Madrid scored 2+.
It’s Champions League take two on Wednesday and I’ve posted a separate preview with reasoning for my top tips selections.
There’s not much else on but Highland League Wick will try to play their outstanding Scottish Cup tie against East junior side Linlithgow and there are some lower-league games in Italy and Portugal. Team news is key for the Wick match especially if Lithgae are missing any players who are having to work either before the long trip north or who are being forced to miss out.
As I said yesterday Barcelona have taken a strong squad to Bayer Leverkusen including Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar and Pep Guardiola says he’ll be taking the game seriously even though his men have won Group E.
Ideally you’d wait to see the starting XI but you risk missing a price so I’m taking a chance on Barca at 7-5 with bet365. It’s odd you rarely see on them but there is a reason for it with Bayer needing to win and see if that came take them through.
I reckon Roma will KO Bayer’s hopes anyway by beating BATE at home. Take them on the Top Treble with Valencia at home to Lyon and Dynamo Kiev -1 at home to Maccabi Tel-Aviv as they try to clinch second spot in Group G. Kiev won 2-0 in Israel and beat Porto 2-0 away to give themselves a great chance of progression.
