IT'S the start of a barmy week if you like me can't get used to midweek FA Cup fixtures.
The last-16 ties will be played Monday to Thursday starting with Portsmouth vs Arsenal tonight.
Pompey are going well in League One and this should be a decent game with goals but the Gunners afford to slip up having exited the Europa League last week.
In the Championship Middlesbrough face a tough test against Nottingham Forest and there are a few other games on the Continent to look at ahead of hectic week.
I've picked out a treble starting with over 2.5 goals at Portsmouth. The south-coast side are on a good run but this will be a massive step up in class and I expect the Gunners to bounce back from their first defeat of the year against Olympiakos.
But it's goals I'm going for. Five of the Gunners' previous seven have gone over 2.5 goals and there is a chance Pompey could contribute to the goals tally. If Eddie Nketiah starts back the former on-loan Leeds star to score first at 5-1 at 888sport.
In the Championship it looks a tight game at the Riverside with a draw having a chance. However, I'm going with draw or Forest as the away looks a better prospect than a home won. Boro are without a victory in six, losing their last two 1-0, but play-off chasers Forest have won just one in six.
Complete the treble with over 2.5 goals at Benfica vs Moreirense. Five of the last six meetings in Lisbon have saw both to score and over 2.5 and Moreirense's last six have landed btts. Four of Benfica's last seven have brought up btts and over 3.5 goals so every chance of a high scorer.
Sunday saw my 4-1 both to score treble win with games at Union Berlin, Leipzig and Everton but Real Madrid downed my Top Treble late on after wins by Wolves and Lyon. Barca missed a few chances in the first half of El Clasico and ultimately paid the penalty.
My Super Single was void with Kevin de Bruyne not starting the EFL Cup Final as Pep Guardiola rang the changes in a 2-1 win over Aston Villa.
