THE Everton v Liverpool game didn't live up to its billing and it's amazing how many times that happens on the Monday night Premier League game.
Liverpool netted late to win the points but I needed both to score to complete a treble. I also tipped a draw so I was robbed at the end and a red card and there should have been one.
I didn't have any other bets on a day where Johnb grabbed the headlines with a fantastic 94-1 treble and I pass on my congratulations to him.
There's plenty to look at on Tuesday and I've posted a separate preview on Celtic v Partick Thistle and elsewhere there are four games in the Bundesliga where it's beginning to look a straight fight between Bayern Munich and shocktroops RB Leipzig for the title. Those two meet on Wednesday.
Borussia Dortmund are well off the pace and will need to go on a run of wins to have a chance of getting back in the mix. Dortmund are just 2-7 at Paddy Power to beat Augsburg tonight and consider them to win to nil against a side that's netted just twice in five games.
Five favourites are at home in Spanish Cup second-leg ties so team news for these will be vital. Guijelo 0, Atletico Madrid 6; Toledo 0, Villarreal 3; Huesca 2, Las Palmas 2; Valldolid 1, Real Sociedad 3 and Cordoba 2, Malaga 0 were the first-leg results.
There are a couple of matches to look at in Scotland and England and I'm starting my Top Treble with Peterborough at home to Notts County in their FA Cup replay at home to Notts County.
Peterborough are going well in League One while County have lost six in a row in League Two but came back from 2-0 down to earn a replay.
Crucially though the winner faces a lucrative trip to Chelsea and Peterborough boss Grant McCann is likely to field an unchanged team as he chases that big prize.
Add Borussia Dortmund, unbeaten in 28 matches at home, to beat Augsburg in the Bundesliga and the riskiest part of the treble is Atalanta at home to Empoli in Serie A.
Atalanta have gone off the boil slightly with no wins in three but still sit sixth in the table and this is the perfect chane for them to get back on track against fourth-bottom Empoli.
My only other bet is a goals treble but I may add a Super Single later once team news is confirmed for the Celtic game and Spanish Cup ties.
