IT’S one or the other these days – either the Super Single or the Top treble wins but not both.
On Sunday it was the turn of the Super Single on Sunday with Montpellier beating Nice to get me off to a March flier. Nice!
The Top Treble started early with Valencia, picked up pace as Porto sunk Sporting but it all ended in tears as Real Madrid were held 1-1 at home to Villarreal.
My goals Super Single trial started with both to score at Celtic v Aberdeen which had come up in six out of seven meetings in Glasgow but the Dons failed to keep up their side of the bargain despite dominating until the champions took the lead just before half-time.
Roma v Juventus is the highlight of the games on Monday and I’ll take a closer look at that as well as Celta Vigo v Elche, Auxerre v Angers and others before putting up top tips.
As I did last month I’ll include cover bets in my stats only if I advised them on the site. I advised a part cover on Montpellier, 0.1pt on the draw at 14-1, so that’s come off the win.
Having looked at the matches and team news I’m going for a double as the Super Single and it’s Juventus not to lose and Celta Vigo to win.
Juve will wrap up the title with three points and while Roma must win to stay alive they’re not good to then go on a run and catch the champions. I’d be on Juve to win if it wasn’t for the fact they’ll be without key men Paul Pogba and Andrea Pirlo while Arturo Vidal is a doubt.
Roma have drawn seven of their last nine in Serie and their previous home win came back in November against Inter. Juve have won five and drawn three of the last eight and five of their last six against Roma so I’m siding with the visitors not to lose.
Another bet of interest is the bookings market. Ref Daniele Orsato has flashed 60 yellows and three reds in 11 games and when Juve won 3-2 in Turin earlier in the season it was fiery with seven bookings and two sending-offs. However, bookies aren’t giving much away and they expect at least five yellows. William Hill go 1-1 for 4-6 bookings and 17-10 for seven or more while a red card is 21-10 at Ladbrokes.
I’m doubling Juve not to lose with Celta to beat struggling Elche. Celta have notched back-to-back 2-0 wins against Deportivo and Atletico Madrid and look safe from the drop. They are unbeaten in four ans should see off fourth-bottom Elche.
Matches between the sides have been tight with the last three finishing 1-0 so an alternative to Celta to win is under 2.5 goals and that pays a best 1-1 at Betfred.
Auxerre v Angers could be one for both to score fans and the same goes for Winterthur v Shaffhausen in Switzerland.
