THE weekend kicks off with Huddersfield vs Nottm Forest and top-flight games in Germany, France, Holland and Portugal.
In the Championship both sides have started poorly and identically – with no wins, no goals and four goals conceded in two games. Makes this one tough to call.
Hertha Berlin vs Eintracht Frankfurt and big-spending Lille vs Nantes are the games in Germany and France and Dutch football expert mr orange gives Twente a good chance against a Groningen side missing Arjen Robben. There are other games dotted about Europe including Braga vs Santa Clara.
Well done to all the winners last night. While I tipped Celtic, Rangers and Spurs to win, Motherwell to lose and Aberdeen +2 my treble was a goal out with Celtic needing a second.
Rangers were the most impressive winners on the night but face a tough final qualifier against Galatasaray while Celtic face a Sarajevo side they beat recently in the Champions League qualifiers.
Lille have beaten Nantes seven out of eight at home and have won four of their last six 1-0 while Nantes have won one of six.
In Germany Hertha Berlin won 4-1 at Werder Bremen after a 5-4 cup win Braunschweig and five of their last six games have gone over 2.5 goals. Five of Frankfurt's six last have saw both scoring so every chance of goals here.
Mr Orange fancies a Twente side who are unbeaten in four and who am I to argue. Twente are 4-11 not to lose against an outfit without star signing Arjen Robben and I'm including that on my treble.
That's for another day but for now we're looking for Friday winners ahead of a busy weekend.
