IT was a day of near misses on the Europa League with my btts treble being a goal short and the Top Treble needing one goal from Torino.
My Super Single St Etienne flopped at Qarabag on a night when I could have taken the likes of Legia Warsaw or Bruges who I flagged up.
So we move on to Friday and I've only looked at three big games – Bayern Munich v Wolfsburg to kick off the Bundesliga, PSG at Evian in French Ligue 1 and the Spanish Super Cup second leg between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid.
I'm now focusing on my weekend columns and tips but if I get a chance to do so I'll look at other games but it's unlikely.
So let's start with Bayern whose boss Pep Guardiola has warned his men not to take Wolfsburg lightly with his squad missing six top stars. Bastian Schweinsteiger, Franck Ribery, Thiago, Javi Martinez and Rafinha are injured while Jerome Boateng is banned, prompting the Spanish coach to say “I've got no midfielders”.
However, the champions don't lack talent with the likes of keeper Manuel Neuer, World Cup-winning captain Phillip Lahm, Thomas Muller and Mario Gotze in their line-up. New signing Robert Lewandowski will start and the biggest threat could come from Holland star Arjen Robben who was one of the players of the tournament in Brazil.
So despite Guardiola's concerns I'm backing Bayern to get off to a flier and they've beaten Wolfsburg in their last seven meetings at home, scoring an average of three goals.
While Bayern shopped for Lewandowski, Wolfsburg brought in Nicklas Bendtner and for me that sums up the difference in quality between the sides.
Atletico and Real clash in the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup. Tuesday's meeting at the Bernabeu was a fairly tame affair that sparked to life in the final 10 minutes with both sides scoring in a 1-1 draw.
French champions PSG are also in action at Evian. This has been a tough venue for the superstars but Evian look a watered-down side having started with a 3-0 defeat at home to promoted Caen and 6-2 thrashing at Rennes.
PSG can't be ignored at 2-5 with McBookie and others even though they are without the injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The favourites still have Edinson Cavani who is 4-1 with bet365 to score first and Ezequiel Lavezzi who is 5-1. New boy David Luiz is 18-1 at Skybet.
There are loads of other games of course and I look forward to seeing tips on games in French Ligue 2, the Jupiler League and across the continent.
I've had a lot of writing to do today then working tonight so haven't had a serious look at Friday's card. However, I've spotted Greg putting up Angers and I'll be on them while Nancy-Nimes btts looks another good shout.
After all the debate about how Bayern will do tonight I'm sticking my neck out and taking Lewandowski to score first as the Super Single. He was top scorer in the Bundesliga last season and should be in decent shape having not been at the World Cup.
I might double up with Cavani who is 4-1 at bet365 but that's not a tip so anyone who agrees should do two singles.
