REAL MADRID’S collapse and a lack of goals at Copenhagen downed my two bets last night.
The Super Single – Dortmund to win and Real -1 – looked good when the Spaniards led 2-0 but inexplicably threw it away against Poles who had been whipping boys until then.
It was two out of three on the Top Treble. Sevilla to score 2+ and Bayer not to lose came in but both to score at Copenhagen v Leicester was a loser. Should have taken fans of both sides both to snore – the game was that bad.
Well done to Jordan whose Monaco to score 2+ tip landed while Greg got some of the early goals he wanted in the Champions League.
So we move from the Champions League to the Europa League and as everyone knows that’s not my favourite tournament.
Games include Fenerbahce v Man United and Southampton against an Inter Milan side that’s just sacked Frank de Boer. And of course there is Zenit v Dundalk.
It’s difficult to call Man U these days so I won’t and the Saints game will depend on how Inter react to the manager going and what team they put out. A full-strength Inter could be a bit of value at almost 5-1 as they have a bit to prove.
My Super Single last time out in the Europa League was Zenit to win at Dundalk with over 2.5 match goals. The Russians suffered a scare before running out 3-1 winners with two late goals.
Dundalk have been a credit to the competition with four points and a goal in every game but a visit to St Petersburg represents their toughest test. This should be a comfortable home win and as a Super Single I’m doubling Zenit -2AH with Sparta Prague not to lose at home to Hapoel Beer Sheva.
The Czechs won 1-0 in Israel which was a bit of a surprise. Hapoel are a bit hapless on the road and haven’t won this season in the Champions League qualifiers or Europa League. They should win again but for the double I’m taking them not to lose.
Nice entertain Red Bull Salzburg as they bid to do the double over the Austrians and while they were a possible Super Single at just under evens I’ve decided to put them on the Top treble with Schalke at home to Krasnodar and Villarreal at home to Osmanlispor.
Jordan is in agreement with me about Nice so check out his good write-up. Schalke have maximum points from their games and won away to Krasnodar and this is a chance to seal their last-16 place then rest players.
Villarreal were held 2-2 in Turkey but at home are a different animal and as we know the Spanish teams treat this tournament seriously and one of them (Sevilla) usually wins it.
One word of warning though – the treble is taken on the assumption the home sides field strong teams. If you can wait for conformation do so.
My both to score treble is based on stats and features three early games. If that comes in I may add a btts double or treble for the later games.
