AFTER Wednesday’s disaster with Red Bull it was nice to land the Super Single on Thursday.
I backed Bruges at 1-1 to see off Chaleroi in the Belgian play-offs and they made me sweat by winning 3-2 after I refused to cover at 2-0 and 3-1.
The Top Treble was well thought out but didn’t trap as Malmo failed to score against a Hacken side who always seem to give them trouble. It was the same case with Fenerbahce who were hammered 3-0 at home to Bursaspor while Anderlecht slipped up at Kortrijk.
There are plenty of games to look at on Friday including League of Ireland and lower-league encounters in Italy, German and France.
As usual my focus is on Saturday’s Daily Record column but I’ve managed to pick out a goals treble – I don’t have time to put up the reasoning so check out the stats if you’re not sure.
Now that my Record columns for the weekend are written I’ve had some time to hunt down a Super Single. I thought about Dundalk at St Pat’s but while the visitors look a good bet on current form the concensus from Irish tipsters is it’s too close to call.
So instead I’m focusing on another Irish game and when you look at the stats it’s difficult to understand why Bohemians v Bray is as big as 13-8 for both teams to score. Bray have had some problems this season and conceded 20 goals in four games before shocking St Pat’s 1-0 last time out.
They should be revitalised for a trip to Bohemians and while it’s hard to see them keeping another clean sheet there is every chance they can score having done so on their previous six trips to face the Dublin outfit. Bray have netted in their last three games at Drogheda, Dundalk and Sligo so pose a threat on the road even if they can’t keep pigeons out a close.
Bohemians aren’t prolific scorers but have netted in four of their last five at home so should hit the target.
Raaljaca’s first goals tips will be up today on his new goals thread and if you get a chance read his message that was put up on Wednesday. Goals tips would be better on the other thread but they can posted here too.
