IT will be fish for tea – or should that be breakfast – after Pescara landed the Super Single.
I backed them not to lose at Vicenza and they drew 2-2 to reach the Serie A play-off final.
Pescara not to lose at 4-5 was my only bet of the day and I’d substracted 0.2pts from my winnings after advising a cover on Vicenza at 14-1.
Next up for Pescara is a final against Avellino who shocked Bologna and maybe I’ll be on them for a fourth Super Single in recent weeks.
There are many more games to choose from on Wednesday with the highlights being the Turkish Cup Final between Bursaspor and Galatasaray and the Austrian Cup Final featuring Austria Vienna and Red Bull Salzburg.
The Turkish season finale is at Bursaspor’s ground they beat Gala at home in the league as well as drawing away. Champions Gala are going for the double and are hot favourites though while Bursaspor finished down in sixth.
Red Bull are red-hot favourites but their record against Austria Vienna is less than spectacular this season, losing one, drawing one and winning two. All four meetings saw both teams score and three of the four went over 3.5 goals. The one that didn’t was last week’s 1-1 draw when both fielded weakened sides so goals can be expected tonight.
Red Bull won their last five matches as they wrapped up the title, scoring 99 goals in 36 games, while the Vienna side won just two of their last seven as they finished seventh – a massive 30 points behind their final opponents.
In Sweden and Finland there are league matches and in Norway there are loads of cup games and we should plenty of goals tips from people who follow those matches.
AIK Solna are unbeaten at home as they welcome lowly Falkenbergs but the win is a short price so I’m taking them minus one while elsewhere in Sweden Henrik Larsson’s Helsinborgs can get back on track at Orebro while Hacken can do likewise away to basement boys Atvidabergs.
Hacken were going great guns until I put them on a Super Single and they lost at home to Falkenbergs. They were then beaten 2-0 at a decen Gefle side and I’m putting my faith in them to get back on track at Atvidabergs who have lost five in a row.
On four visits there Hacken have lost once and away from home this season have won three and drawn one of their matches.
In Finland Lahti v HIFK looks good for both to score and there should be home wins for RoPS and HJK against KTP and Ilves respectively.
