THE Champions League qualifiers didn’t quite go to plan so it was a 4pts loss for my two Super Singles.
Midtjylland must have performed terribly to only beat Gibraltar champions Lincoln Red Imps and Bulgarians Ludogorets were even worse as they lost 1-0 at home to Milsami.
I don’t think anyone saw those results but as I said in the preview you can’t trust season who yet to start their league campaigns.
My other Super Single was riskier as I went with TNS draw no bet at home to a weakened Videoton but the Welsh side lost 1-0.
The good news is there are another five ties tonight including Celtic v Stjarnan and BATE Borisov v Dundalk. I can’t see past Celtic winning by at least three and I’ll put up a separate preview with full details on why I’m on Gary Mackay-Steven – on target in all three pre-season friendlies – to score as a Super Single.
One-time Dunfermilne boss Stephen Kenny must think he’s dreaming as he leads a side into Champions League action on the same night as Celtic.
However, his journey to Belarus could be a nightmare against an experienced side who made the group stage last season and beat Athletic Bilbao. BATE are worth backing at 4-9 with Stan James and my Daily Double is the Belarussians and Celtic -2.
The other ties are Qarabag v FK Rudar, Malmo v Zalgiris and Dinamo Zagreb against Fola Esch with all the home sides short-priced favourites. After what happened on Tuesday I’m reluctant to put any handicap or goals bets on these matches.
Again there are a load of friendlies where team news is vital including Everton v Stoke in the Asian Trophy, B Moenchengladbach v Swansea and our old friends Cabinteely against MK Dons.
I might put up more tips later or in the morning but I’ll be out all day Wednesday so watch the comments section for any friendly advice that’s posted.
