JUST when I’d written off my £20 to £250 challenge up popped Real Madrid with two last-gasp goals.
I thought I was playing safe with Real at home to Sporting but they made me sweat big style.
Anyway after six wins I’m up to £211.47. The big questions is: Do I risk it all on the Europa League or wait until Friday?
Greg Browning advised me to wait until Friday or Saturday but I don’t listen to anything the missus says so I’m not going to bow down to Greg.
However, I’ve taken some of his advice on board and it’s a goals bet. I’m on a short-priced double that should come in – Inter to score at home to Hapoel Beer Sheva and Southampton to net at St Mary’s against Sparta Prague.
If it doesn’t I’ll never go against Greg again – and please if you are following this challenge and don’t like tonight’s bet just wait for the next one on Friday or Saturday.
There’s plenty of interesting bets and chat on the challenges thread so keep tabs on what’s happening here.
Inter to score (8.05pm)
Southampton to score (8.05pm)
