IT’S been a really quiet couple of days so it’s good to get some “real” football back.
Tonight could be the night Celtic clinch the Premiership title although I expect Aberdeen to make them wait until Sunday by winning at Dundee.
In England it’s Derby v QPR and I’ve posted a preview of those games. My Super Single in today’s Record is Aberdeen to win to nil at 6-4 and while I wouldn’t put anyone off that I’m taking less risk with the site choice.
Elsewhere it’s Hertha Berlin v Hoffenheim, Espanyol v Real Betis and Guingamp v Nancy among others.
And for goals fans the Jupiler League is back and I expect Greg will post French Ligue 2 tips.
As usual my focus is on Saturday’s Daily Record column but with that in good shape I’ve had a closer look at Friday’s games.
Last night it was suggested I take Derry to score 2+ at home to Bray and while that’s a good shout at evens I’m simply backing Derry to win at the same price. The club return to action for the first time since the death of captain Ryan McBride and it will be an emotional night at Brandywell.
Fans will be out in force to pay tribute to McBride and I’m sure the players will be determined to win in his name. Derry have beaten Bray in their last five meetings at home and won both home matches this season convincingly.
I don’t have too much time for a write-up but my both teams to score treble is based on form and stats. Espanyol v Real Betis looks the strongest contender with both scoring and conceding although the h2h doesn’t back this up.
Add Hertha Berlin v Hoffenheim – fifth v fourth and a game that should provide goals. Hertha could edge it but Hoffenheim are tough to beat and it has the feel of a 2-1 or 1-1.
Complete the treble with Zulte v Anderlecht as the complicated Belgian league system sees the start of the Champions Group with Zulte in third place and four points Anderlecht. Both will want to win here and should lead to goals.
