I DIDN’T do too much on Tuesday and looking at results it was probably just as well.
My Super Single of Man Utd -2 came up at 4-5 but Alex McLeish’s Genk beat the Top Treble when they were surprising held by Ostende.
Sheffield Utd, Wolfsburg, Bayern Munich and Go Ahead Eagles were among other fancied sides who failed to win.
There aren’t many fixtures to look at on Wednesday but some big names are in action. In the FA Cup Liverpool travel to Bolton for their replay and I fancy the Premiership side especially if Daniel Sturridge makes his first start after recovering from injury.
In the Bundesliga we have another five matches including basement boys Dortmund at 1-2 at home to Augsburg. Borussia should win but it must be the shortest price ever for a team at the bottom against one in the top five.
Real Madrid are at home to Sevilla in La Liga and Napoli tackle out-of-form Inter in the Italian Cup. In France it’s Monaco v Bastia in the League Cup semi-finals for the right to face PSG.
Having studied the card I like the look of Liverpool, Monaco, Real Madrid, Dortmund and Ivory Coast in their African Cup of Nations semi-final against Congo DR. As you know I tend to stay away from fivefolds so from that handful the Top Treble is Liverpool, Monaco and Ivory Coast at 3-1. Add Real and Dortmund and it takes it to 13-2 at Betfred and William and that’s almost one for long-shot Lee on the other thread.
Monaco have conceded just once in 13 games and that’s an incredible record. With a cup final place at stake I can’t see them slipping up aaginst a Brescia outfit who have just once away all season.
I haven’t done too much on the African Nations but the tournament has caught fire in the knockout stages and I was impressed by Ivory Coast’s 3-1 defeat of Algeria in the quarter-finals. With Wilfried Bony looking worth every penny Man City have paid for him they should see off surprise semi-finalists Congo DR. Bony to score first at 4-1 with Betfred will be one of the night’s popular punts.
I’ll put up a separate preview on Bolton v Liverpool to explain the Super Single of Liverpool -1 AH. This Asian Handicap bet will return your stake if Liverpool win by one and pay out if they succeed by two or more.
