MY Scottish yesterday returned a treble with the other two postponed but my English one let us down.

It was summed up by Peterborough keeping their first clean sheet of the season at home to Coventry.

If you backed both lines you'll have made a small profit so let's invest it on the Sunday games.

I'm starting with the big one between Man City and Arsenal. City haven't kept a clean sheet in their last seven league games while the Gunners netted five at Chelsea and possess a permanent goal threat in the shape of Robin van Persie.

City still boast a 100 per cent home record so will be looking to bounce back from Monday's defeat at Stamford Bridge and at worst I reckon they'll get a score draw.

The only Championship game sees local rivals Portsmouth entertain Southampton. This should be a cracker between two teams who will be determined to win.

Southampton have successive away defeats as well as being held at home to Blackpool. Pompey have netted in four of their last five and lost just one in six so they will feel they have a chance.

So let's head for Europe. Atletico Madrid are finding it as tough as Peterborough to keep clean sheets so hopefully they won't match the Posh's feat and shut out Real Betis.

Atletico, whose boss Gregorio Manzano is under fire after last week's 4-2 defeat at Racing, have conceded 15 goals in their last six games but have netted in all of them.

Betis head for the capital buoyed by two injury-time goals that earned them a 2-1 win against Valencia last week. They have won two out of six on the road and should at least hit the target.

Note that the Atletico game kicks off at 11am British time so if you miss put in Valencia v Malaga at 8.30pm instead.

There have been 15 goals in the last four meetings between Lazio and Udinese and there could be plenty more when they clash in Rome.

Lazio will leapfrog the leaders with a win and there could be fireworks. Udinese have conceded just five in seven away games but will find it tougher in the Olympic Stadium. It has the look of a 1-1 draw.

Complete the fivefold with Ajaccio v Rennes. Ajaccio have improved in recent weeks and the bottom dogs just lost out 3-2 in their last home game against champions Lille. Two of their last four have also been 2-2 draws.

Rennes head for Ajaccio on a downer after a poor Europa League campaign ended in defeat to Atletico Madrid. Only one side in the top 11 have conceded more away goals than Rennes so their hosts will fancy their chances of at least scoring.

Both teams to score

Man City v Arsenal (4.10pm)

Portsmouth v Southampton (1pm)

Atletico Madrid v Real Betis (11am)

Lazio v Udinese (7.45pm)

Ajaccio v Rennes (4pm)

    I picked a both to score treble of Blackburn, Ross County and Airdrie from your English and Scottish lines and was pleased when it came up at better than 3/1.

    City – Arsenal looks a good shout for tomorrow.

      Eric, well done with the treble. My Scottish treble came up with two others postponed so it could have been better. Man City v Arsenal is on my line today.
