YOU have to love a Champions League night that goes to form – unless you were on Valencia. I wasn’t luckily and landed my Top Treble for the second day running as well as the Super Single which was Jason Cummings to score for Hibs.
All four of the recommended bets on my Champions League preview also won – Thomas Muller to score at 6-5, Chelsea to win at 3-4, Barcelona to win to nil at 4-5 and Zenit St Petersburg DNB at 6-5.
My 2pts treble of Chelsea, Olympiakos and both to score at Roma paid 3-1 and I deducted 1pt for a risky cover on the Greeks who claimed a last-minute winner. And Greg’s nap on Chelsea came up too.
Thursday is all about the Europa League and I’ve posted a preview covering the British teams – Celtic, Spurs and Liverpool. Celtic will be at full strength at home to Molde and Jurgen Klopp has taken all of his stars to Russia to face Rubin Kazan who held his men to a 1-1 draw at Anfield.
Spurs also look set to name a strong side at home to Anderlecht despite facing Arsenal on Sunday. If in doubt don’t bet on these games until line-ups are confirmed.
Having landed the Cummings’ Super Single and won on Muller to score I’m starting with Leigh Griffiths to score for Celtic against the Norwegians. Griffiths is in great form and is 21-20 at bet365 to hit the target.
Recently my focus with the Europa League has been with goals and I’m not risking too much tonight. I’ve got two both to score trebles – an early one and a late one.
I’m also doing a 1pt handicaps treble. Finding WDW value isn’t easy sides – teams who should win easily include Dortmund, Napoli, Sporting and Athletic Bilbao but all are short.
I can’t see any decent market on Dortmund goals or handicaps but if he starts consider Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score first at 11-4 with 888sport. He has two hat-tricks in his last four outings.
Even Dortmund -1 and -2 AH is too short to I’m on Napoli -1 and Sporting -1 – both won the reverse ties easily. Napoli beat Midtjylland 4-1 away and Sporting thrashed Skenderbeu 5-1 at home. Add Norwegian champions Rosenborg +1 at home to Lazio.
They lost 3-1 in Italy but Lazio are resting many players ahead of Sunday’s Rome derby. As you’ll see I like both to score as Rosenborg in particular have been involved in goal-laden matches (4-3 and 3-3 intheir last two) and Lazio should net whoever they start up front.
The new site should be launched on Sunday – and apologies for the technical hitch that’s delayed us by a wekk.
