It was a repeat of Sunday with a successive Top Treble but a failed Super Single.
The treble was both to score at Genoa v Torino and the remarkable Swindon v Sheffield Utd match and was completed by Rapid Bucharest to win.
I took a chance on Alexis Sanchez to score first for the Super Single and he missed a late sitter before Swansea clinched a shock win at Arsenal. Have to mention raaljaca and Harpreet who put up both to score single winners and all the focus on the Cork game allowed me to tip them to score next at 2-5 and to win at 7-4 when they trailed 1-0 at half-time – so Harpreet does indeed have his use.
Sanchez’s blank means the Super Single record is level for May but the Top Treble is looking extremely healthy at 24.15 points profit.
On Tuesday it’s all about Bayern Munich v Barcelona – it really is. I’ve rarely seen a quieter card although there are a few matches dotted about the continent with the league games in the likes of Austria, Turkey and Norway.
In some ways I’me going against the grain and predicting an easy night for Barca. I believe they’re too strong for a weakened and off-form Bayern and for the Super Single I’m taking Barca draw no bet with reasoning on the preview.
I’ve posted a separate Champions League semi-final preview with tips and as I suggested last night two sides who feature on the Top Treble are Rosenborg and Galatasaray. Rosenborg have won six and drawn of their seven league games and sit top of the Norwegian league after a few barren years.
They are around 1-2 to win away to a Mjondalen side who I have to admit I know little about but they lie 10th in the table after two victories.
Rosenborg are 2-5 at bet365 to win and top scorer Alexander Soderlund, with nine this season, is worth a look to score or to score first when prices become available.
The Turkish title race remains fascinating with two points separating the top three. Galatasaray lead by one from Fenerbahce with Besiktas a point further behind after slipping up at the weekend.
Gala, who have won four in a row, are the only ones to play tonight so will be desperate to get the points in the bag and should do so at Mersin although the home men are in decent form. The leaders are no bigger than 4-9 at sportingbet so both to score could be an alternative bet at 9-10 with sportingbet.
Both have netted in the last four meetings of the sides and Mersin’s last six and nine of their last 11 have brought up this market so they like a goal. Gala to win and both to score pays 2-1 at 888sport.
A Turkish match first mentioned by raaljaca for goals was Kasimpasa v Balikesirspor and I’ve taken a look at the stats. No wonder he’s tipping over 2.5 and over 3.5 goals.
Basement boys Balikesispor love a goal with their last nine seeing both to score and six going over 3.5 goals. Kasimpasa’s stats are just as impressive with their last eight bringing up the market – and look at their previous six games – 1-4, 5-3, 3-1, 1-5, 2-5 and 2-3.
The only meeting between the sides finished 5-3 to Balikesirspor earlier in the season and you can’t ignore this when looking at stats. It’s why over 3.5 goals is odds on at 19-20 with Ladbrokes – but I wonder if anyone will risk over 4.5 at 9-4 with Betfred. Kasimpasa are 29-20 at BetVictor and Ladbrokes to win with both on target.
So for the Top Treble I’m going with all the bets I highlighted last night – Rosenborg, Galatasaray and over 2.5 goals at Kasimpasa.
3pts Super Single
Barcelona draw no bet (7.45pm)
3.15pts Top Treble
Kasimpasa v Baikesirspor over 2.5 goals (5.45pm)
