I WAS going to do an English line but can't ignore tonight's two Champions League ties so will start with them.

Arsenal v AC Milan and Benfica v Zenit St Petersburg both look high scorers and both teams can score in London and Lisbon.

The Gunners will need to be gung-ho after losing the first leg 4-0 and Arsene Wenger has stated he could go with four or even more up front.

This is likely to lead to goals at both ends because with the likes of Robinho, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Urby Emanuelson in their ranks the Italians can pick off the home side on the break.

Zenit lead 3-2 from the first leg so are likely to need at least one goal to have a chance of qualifying. Benfica are strong at but clean sheets are harder to find than Rangers owner Craig Whyte.

So now to England and first on my list is MK Dons v Yeovil. The home side should win this buy Yeovil under boss Gary Johnson have started to play.

Yeovil's last six have featured both to score with 24 goals in those meetings while MK Dons have netted in their last six, including a 5-0 home win against Oldham. The last two meetings between the side have produced nine goals.

Next up it's what could be a Championship cracker between Southampton and Ipswich. Southampton have recovered from a blip that coincided with the absence of top scorer Rickie Lambert to bounce back with four wins in five, all to nil.

In between they were held 1-1 at West Ham and an Ipswich side in great nick should at least score on the south coast. Thye have netted 15 in six games, failing only at Brighton, and the highlight was a 5-1 hammering of the Hammers.

It was 5-2 to Southampton when the sides met at Portman Road and the last five meetings have featured both scoring.

We started with the Champions League and complete the line in the Blue Square Premier. Fleetwood are pushing for promotion for the first time and have carved out a five-point lead over Wrexham with some fabulous football.

They have netted 83 in 35 games including 43 in 18 home outings, losing just once. Fleetwood have banged in 13 goals in their last three but will face a tough test from a Grimsby outfit unbeaten in nine and with 14 goals in their last six.

Flying Fleetwood should edge it but hopefully it will be high scoring.

    Will you be putting up a combined btts ??

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Jamie, I do a combined line for the Daily Record and separate English and Scottish ones for the website. There was no space in the Record today to do all the tips but if you want a combination try the two Champions League games plus MK Dons v Yeovil, Fleetwood v Grimsby, Dumbarton v Cowdenbeath and East Fife v Brechin. Perm any five and all six.

    I’ve let you do all the hard work today Mr. Fixit by selecting 4 of your 5 tips (left out M.K Dons).
    Also following the gunners last two premiership wins I couldn’t resist a couple of quid on them qualify at 20-1.
