MAN UNITED were rotten last night – but Zlatan Ibrahimovic was magnificent.
I backed the Swede at 14-5 to score first and banked a nice profit of 11.2pts. So in two days I’ve won 22.2pts on two Super Singles and will make an attempt to clear the monthly losses.
If that happens it will be the greatest recovery since some bloke called Lazarus turned up his mate’s house for a surprise party.
Talking of miracles that was a great shout from Chris Guy who tipped Zlatan to score with a header at 8-1.
Well done to everyone who landed winners and also to Dundalk for their fabulous success at home to Maccabi Tel Aviv.
I really hate Europa League nights and lost three points on two trebles but I could afford that after winners earlier in the week.
There are a few big games to look at tonight and I’ve posted a separate preview on Motherwell v Hearts in the Premiership.
There’s also Friday night football in the Premier League as Everton host Crystal Palace. Everton have gone off the boil with two defeats after a great start to the season while Palace will be lifted by their dramatic weekend win at Sunderland.
Palace are unbeaten in three trips to Goodison – including two 3-2 wins – and are as big as 9-2 at Betfred. Like Motherwell, who are 3-1 at home to Hearts, they could be considered on the draw no bet market at 29-10 with 888sport or not to lose at 16-13.
Red Bull Leipzig host Augsburg in the Bundesliga and let’s hope there’s another start for Scotland attacker Oliver Burke who netted within five minutes of his first start at Cologne last week.
Newcomers Leipzig have started well with two wins and three draws but won’t find it easy against an Augsburg side who have won two and lost two of their first. Don’t see RB losing but it could be a draw and they look a little short at odds on.
Real Sociedad have lost just two of 10 meetings with Real Betis and beat Las Palmas 4-1 at home last time out. Betis have had a mixed start and could lose out here. The last four meetings have seen both to score so that could be the shout at 5-6 with Betfred.
In France Rennes face Guingamp defending a 100 per cent home record – three wins from three with seven scored. Guingamp sit one point above them after a decent start and have won on three of their last four visits to Normandy. I’d favour Rennes at 11-10 with Ladbrokes and McBookie but the h2h stats worry me.
PEC Zwolle v Den Haag in Holland looks to favour overs. The last four meetings have seen both to score and over 2.5 goals with an average of five a game. Five out of Den Haag’s last six have gone over 2.5 goals but PEC’s last two at home have produced exactly two. Over 2.5 goals pays 14-19 at 888sport.
Tondela managed to escape the drop last season but have started poorly with two points from six games including no goals in three home outings.
I’ve only had time to look at the big games with it being a Friday but there are the usual Dutch lower league games to look at for goals and Greg is likely to post tips on French Ligue 2 so keep an eye out for them.
Possibly I’ve been overthinking things today as I’m keen for Super Single redemption. I considered fit-again Romelu Lukaka to score for Everton but in the end I’m on Pacos Ferreira draw no bet at Tondela. Wish me luck!
My only other bet tonight is a Top Treble on both to score at PEC v Den Haag, Augsburg not to lose and Motherwell not to lose.
