Real Betis v Deportivo La Coruna, 9pm

DEPORTIVO have surrendered their sixth-placed position with another loss last weekend to Madrid.

Pepe Mel’s team have blown hot and cold in recent weeks to undermine their fourth-place challenge and are now seven points from Sociedad in fourth.

However, the hosts have had no problems finding the net. In their last three games Betis have notched nine goals, with Ruben Castro scoring three of those.

Depor just failed to make it five wins in five last weekend but the 12 points from the last possible 15 keeps them two points away from the relegation places in 17th.

In a similar vein to their hosts, Depor have been in fine goalscoring form, yielding 14 goals from their last six games and eight from their last three. If ever there was a time to back a high-scoring match it has to be on tonight.

    Germany today. In Bundesliga 2 16/23 Energie Cottbus home games under Rudi Bommer have produced Under 2.5 Goals and so have all of Kaiserslautern’s last ten away matches.

      off to Ireland for our first pick of the week – and in-form St Patricks host Bohemians at Richmond Park, looking to secure their 12th game unbeaten from 13 on their own patch.

      Liam Buckley’s side have kicked off the new campaign with aplomb, and currently sit third in the Premier League – nad find themselves four points behind second placed Derry, with a game in hand.

      Half a dozen clean sheets from their last eight in front of their own fans shows just how dominant the home side have been of late, and they will be keen to maintain that momentum in this one.

      A 2-0 defeat of leaders Sligo last week will have boosted confidence in the home camp, and the Saints will be eyeing pole position, with just six points to make up – and bettering their finish of third last campaign.

      Visitors Bohemians travel to Inchicore in inconsistent form – and have won just two of their last eight ahead of this clash.

      Aaron Callaghan’s side have lost two of their opening three on the road this season, and that suggests that they have continued the miserable run which saw them fail to win eight of their final 10 away from Dalymount Park last year.

      Worrying for the Gypsies will be the fact that they have kept just two clean sheets on their travels since May 2012 – and that indicates that St Patricks are more than likely to notch against their guests this evening.

      The hosts are unbeaten in six against their opponents, and I reckon that they can make it three wins on the bounce here.

      Bet 1: St Patricks (HOME) @ 1.56

      Switching our attentions to France now – and Ligue 2, as Monaco travel to Sedan, looking for maximum points in order to secure promotion back to the top tier.

      Claudio Ranieri’s side have been in sparkling form of late, and will be high in confidence following a 4-0 thrashing of Clermont last week – a result which further extended their lead at the top of the table.

      And eight unbeaten on the road, with six wins, and five clean sheets, shows just how impressive Les Rouges et Blancs have been on the road of late – with their free-flowing attacking on the break causing untold problems for the rest of the division.

      Sedan go into this one sitting second bottom of the table – and though results have picked up recently, they are still six points adrift of safety – and running out of time.

      Laurent Guyot’s charges have won three of their last four on their own patch, and will be desperate to continue that positive form – but what a shame for them that they welcome the might of Monaco this evening – a side which has swept all before them this campaign.

      The hosts have no choice but to go for the three points, and that will play straight into the away sides hands.

      On recent form I’d back Sedan against most sides in Ligue 2 – but not Monaco. Their quality is clear, and I can’t see them throwing away the opportunity to secure their top flight status once again.

      Bet 2: Monaco (AWAY) @ 2.06

  3. Greg Browning 11 years ago

    Milesey what’s your thoughts on Lech Poznan today? They haven’t dropped a single point away from home since 30th September 2012!! Also they have won 8 out their last 9 away from home to nil. paddy Power has them at evens. Lump on?

    This week’s Monday Night football comes from Villa Park as Aston Villa host Sunderland i’m tipping goals, goals, goals for those who tune into Sky Sports One at 20:00.

    Paul Lambert’s side have moved out of the relegation zone in recent weeks but they are still right in the midst of a battle for survival. They have a two point cushion over Wigan behind them but as they have to travel to the DW on the final day of the season, they will want to ensure their safety before then.

    Wigan aren’t the only other team in the relegation mix though as both Newcastle and Sunderland are just three points clear of Villa, so victory tonight would see all three of them level on 37 points. The Villans lost 3-0 at Old Trafford last Monday but they looked extremely dangerous on the break, and in truth, they should have had a couple of goals.

    Prior to that, Villa had won three from five and had put three goals past both Stoke and QPR. Their defence is still pretty poor though – no clean sheet since the start of December – with 16 of their last 18 going over 2.5 goals and eight of those going over 3.5.

    Sunderland have been revitalised under Paulo Di Canio, and after an initial defeat at Stamford Bridge, they have won their last two and moved above bitter rivals Newcastle United. In fact it was at St James’ Park that their revival began as The Black Cats thumped Alan Pardew’s men 3-0, with Stephane Sessegnon and Adam Johnson, in particular, having fantastic games.

    Those two are coming into form at exactly the right time as Sunderland have struggled to score all season. They do have plenty of quality going forward, but it seems that Di Canio has been able to harness that much more effectively than Martin O’Neill did while in charge.

    Away from The Stadium Of Light, 11 of Sunderland’s last 12 have had three goals or more, with four having three or more and they haven’t failed to score since a 3-0 defeat at Anfield at the start of January.

    This match seems to have goals written all over it and while I could play it safe with a lay of under 2.5 at around the 1.91 mark, under 3.5 is trading at a very low 1.36. I think it’s worth risking that extra goal, and that’s why I’m making it my lay of the day.
