IT was a night of hits and misses with my highest stake bet winning and the others losing.
The success was a 5pt Top Treble on Benfica, Lyon and Monaco while two 1pt Super Singles were losers. I could have covered Guingamp when they led 2-1 late on while Plymouth won – but needed extra time to see off Newport in their FA Cup replay and earn a terrific trip to Liverpool.
My btts treble, based purely on stats, saw only three teams score. One of those to flop was Nice who also beat the members bet but on the app the Daily Double won for seven winners out of 10.
There are plenty of games on the continent night as Europe's top leagues head for their holiday. In Serie A there are six matches plus four Spanish Cup clashes as well as games in Portugal and Belgium.
The Spanish games are second legs and for reference the first results were Gimnastic 0, Alaves 3; Murcia 0, Celta Vigo 1; Santander 1, Athletic Bilbao 2; Alorcon 1, Espanyol 1. Most of the matches this week have seen plenty of goals despite La Liga sides being weakened.
Having studied the matches in detail I'm going for a Super Single, another 5pts Top Treble and goals treble.
The treble starts with Roma, who have won 11 in a row at home in Serie A, against Chievo. At 4-11 Roma can be taken on accumulators and having won five out of six to nil against tonight's visitors that's an option too.
Add Braga at home to Moreirense. Braga beat Sporting away last time out and have six in a row at home. They shouldn't have too much trouble against shot-shy opponents.
I debated whether to back on-form Napoli at Fiorentina but have settled for them not to lose since their opponents are unbeaten at home with four wins and four draws. To balance that Napoli are unbeaten in seven visits to Florence and have the hottest forward in Serie A history.
Dries Mertens is the only player to have netted seven in two league matches and I'm happy to risk 1.3pts on him to score at 17-10. To net first the Belgian is 11-2 at Winner.
