Leagues Tipped:

IT'S a great night for Portuguese football with three sides involved in the Europa League semi-finals.

Sportingbet offer 1-4 on the tournament winner coming from Portugal and it's difficult to disagree.

Cup favourites Porto take on Spaniards Villarreal with Benfica facing Braga in their other last-four clash.

Porto have enjoyed an incredible season, being crowned Portuguese champs without losing a game and coming back from the dead to beat Benfica in the cup final.

In Europe they've been just as good, netting 10 goals in their quarter-final defeat of Spartak Moscow, and I expect them to take care of a good Villarreal outfit.

Porto are best 4-6 with totesport to win the first leg and 8-13 at Stan James to qualify. Villarreal are 5-1 at Chandler to succeed in Portugal.

I'd hoped for bigger but you can cash in if you believe in goals. Porto have netted in 13 out of 14 Euro ties this season and Villarreal in 11.

The sides love to attack so you have to fancy both to score at 19-20 with William Hill while over 2.5 goals pays 10-11 with the same firm.

Porto superstar Hulk is 11-10 with Chandler to net at any time while Villarreal's former Man United striker Guiseppe Rossi is 12-5 at Stan James. He scored at Sevilla at the weekend and has scored in his last five Euro ties.

The other game between Benfica and Braga looks tougher to call. There isn't much between the sides and last month it was 2-1 Braga on their home territory.

Earlier in the season Benfica won 1-0 at home as they did during the last campaign. They are just 4-7 with Betfred to take the first leg and 4-9 at Stan James to qualify but this could go to the wire.

I'm thinking about Benfica to win the home leg by one (12-5, bet365) but wouldn't rule out Braga to qualify at 2-1 with Chandler.


Porto v Villarreal both to score

(19-20, William Hill)

Braga to qualify

(2-1, Chandler)
