IT was a cracking Saturday for Mr Fixit with his Super Single, Top Treble and English both teams to score Treble all landing.
The man himself, currently on a short holiday in Berlin, will have enjoyed toasting his success with a nice cold Leffe or two. And when he’s in this kind of form, maybe he should take every weekend off!
Greg Browning followed up his full-house Friday by delivering yet another winning Nap while Desmond Two 2s landed a 5-2 double and Scott Allot chipped in with a 6-1 European btts treble.
So it was a good day all round – and as usual plenty of site regulars contributed all manner of winners – so here’s hoping for more of the same today.
With Mr Fixit away I’m filling in with some Sunday tips. It’s a packed day of action and in the Premier League Arsenal head to Stoke looking to return to the top of the table.
Stoke are missing main man Xherdan Shaqiri but I’m struggling to call this one and the fact the Gunners haven’t won on their last four visits to the Potteries is enough to convince me to swerve it. Same goes for the big Scottish Championship fixture of the day – Falkirk v Hibs, where any result wouldn’t surprise me.
The other EPL game see Liverpool host Man United and both should score here after being involved in thrilling 3-3 draws in midweek. Liverpool’s defending has been a comedy of errors recently but they have been decent in attack and can breach a United side who have often been dull as dishwater but still possess plenty of firepower.
I also like btts when Fiorentina – the only Serie A side to have netted in every game this season – travel to AC Milan. And I’m completing the treble with Lokeren v Standard Liege in Belgium. Lokeren have had seven successive games go btts and five of Liege’s last six visits to Lokeren have seen both score.
For a single I can’t see past goals in the battle of third v second in the Dutch top flight. Both Feyenoord and PSV are scoring for fun this season and six of their last seven meetings have seen both teams score and over 2.5 goals.
Juventus should rack up a 10th straight Serie A win when they visit Udinese and Atletico Madrid look good to stay top of La Liga with victory at Las Palmas.
Real Madrid, in new boss Zinedine Zindane’s second game in charge, can hammer home their superiority by winning both halves – a feat they’ve achieved in their last three home games – against a Gijon outfit who’ve lost seven of their last eight league outings.
Feyenoord v PSV (1.30pm) btts and over 2.5 goals
Real Madrid win both halves (3pm)
Atletico Madrid (5.15pm)
Scott’s both teams to score Treble
Liverpool v Man United (2.05pm)
Lokeren v Standard Liege (5pm)
Milan v Fiorentina (7.45pm)
