READING have given Man United some problems in the past couple of seasons – with their 4-3 home defeat (all the goals came in the first half) one of the most memorable games in the Premier League this season.
But I can't see the Royals making it tough for Sir Alex Ferguson's men when the sides meet in the FA Cup tonight.
United are no bigger than 1-4 with the likes of Paddy Power and BetVictor while Reading are 12-1 at BetVictor and Ladbrokes – and the prices reflect the importance of the tie to away boss Brian McDermott.
Reading's focus is on survival and they will rest players despite the carrot of a potential last-eight tie at home to Chelsea.
While United will also rotate players it means starts for the likes of Nani, Ashley Young and Javier Hernandez who has been in good form despite living in the shadow of Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney.
In Serie, Lazio travel to Siena boosted by the failure of any of the other top-four sides to win.
But as far as a title challenge is concerned the Romans are 11 points behind Juventus and that looks to much of a gap to make up.
For Lazio the focus must be on clinching a Champions League slot but after just one win in six games they are no bankers at Siena who have a decent home record and sit second bottom courtesy of a six-point deduction.
Lazio have failed to win on their last five visits to Siena, losing two and drawing 1-1 twice. They also drew 1-1 in Rome this season and it could be another stalemate tonight. A draw pays a best 9-4 at Stan James and Coral.
Top scorer Miroslav Klose is still injured but in his absence Sergio Floccari has stepped up to the plate with four goals in five games. He is 23-10 at Paddy Power to score.
It's fifth v fourth in Portugal as Rio Ave entertain Braga. Rio have a poor home record with just two wins from nine but sit just two points adrift of Braga having won six times on the road.
Braga have just one of their last four and have drawn 3-3 at Beira Mar and lost 3-2 at Nacional. This suggests both teams will score in this one with Rio's last four bringing up this market.
Both to score pays 8-11 at Stan James and another draw, 5-2 at BetVictor, is likely with Braga failing to win at Rio on their last four trips.
We've focused quite a bit on this site on both teams to score in the Eerste Division, the Dutch second tier. It seems on average about 70 per cent of matches bring up both to score, so about five out of seven matches.
That's a good average and I've picked out a treble from tonight's six games. FC Eindhoven's last six have been btts with a total of 28 goals so start with their match at Cambuur who have the 5/7 average.
Next look at Dordrecht v Den Bosch which has been 4-2 and 4-3 in the last two meetings. Dordrecht have lost 4-2 twice and 4-3 once in their last six games so what chance another 4-2 or 4-3?
Next look at Helmond who have won their last two matches 4-3 and 4-2 and face De Graafschap who have seen both score in five of their last six.
