AFTER a terrific Tuesday it wasn’t a bad Wednesday but it could have been better.
My main Super Single was 2pts on Real Madrid and they won at Shakhtar Donetsk despite a late scare.
The second was a more speculative punt on Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score first in Malmo. The anytime scorer price was a bit short for a Super Single although we all knew he’d the target at some point.
I needed a CSKA Moscow for the Top Treble and a Lincoln winner would have given me a nice treble on the long shot.
On the members’ forum the Betting Club money was on a Real/Atletico double and now stands at just over £43.
My Bet of the Day £10 to £100 challenge is on £30.40 after Tuesday’s winnings went on Ibrahimovic to score at 3-5.
Greg put up a couple of winners from Armenia in the morning but his nap on over 2.5 goals at Juventus v Man City was a loser.
Thursday is all about the Europa League and I’ve posted a preview featuring Celtic v Ajax and a separate one detailing who needs to do what in all of the groups – that piece also points out teams such as Napoli, Dortmund and Spurs are fielding weakened teams.
With Celtic missing midfielders Scott Brown, Nir Bitton, Stefan Johansen and Kris Commons it will be a tough task for Ronny Deila’s men.
Ajax look big at a best price of 2-1 at boylesports and in today’s Daily Record I have Ajax draw no bet as the Super Single. With the players Celtic are missing it will be tough to grab the win they need and while they drew 2-2 in Holland I expect Frank de Boer’s men to follow the lead of Molde and grab the points.
I’m putting that up now as a 4pt tip (stake back if it’s a draw) and while I considered Bruges at home to Napoli, Augsburg at home to Athletic Bilbao and Fiorentina at Basel I’m sticking with one single and a couple of trebles.
The Top Treble starts with on-form Augsburg not to lose to a Bilbao side who have been poor on the road with just two wins in 11. Add Liverpool, who are expected to field a close to full-strength side at home to Bordeaux, and complete with Monaco, one defeat in 11, against an Anderlecht side whose fans aren’t travelling.
