IT'S all about Wayne Rooney vs Man United as the final FA Cup last-eight place is decided on Thursday night.
Rooney will be hoping his Derby side give a good account of themselves and it's bound to be a special night for the Old Trafford legend.
The Rams beat United at Old Trafford last season but were on a poor run until winning at Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to field a strong side – United reach the last four of the EFL Cup and this is possibly his best chance of winning silverware with Liverpool out. The winners are away to Norwich.
Derby games have been high scoring recently with the previous seven seeing both score while United are doing better with new signing Bruno Fernandes showing his class and contributing goals. Man United and both to score could be the call at 11-5 at bet365.
Elsewhere there are cup ties in Spain, Italy, France and Holland. The semi-final second leg between Napoli and Inter has been called off.
It's Granada vs Athletic Bilbao in Spain, St Etienne vs Rennes in France and Feyenoord vs Breda and I'll have a closer look at all the games before putting up tips in the morning.
Not much to look at overall but I'm taking Man United and adding Rennes draw no bet at St Etienne in the French Cup semi-final.
Rennes won the League Cup last season and are eyeing up another final against a side that's in poor form with five defeats in six. I think Rennes will win but on the h2hs the last six meetings at St Etienne have been draws so I'm keeping the draw on side.
Complete the treble with Athletic Bilbao not to lose their Spanish Cup second-leg tie at Granada after winning 1-0 at home. The winners face Real Sociedad in the Final and an all-basque derby is a massive carrot for Bilbao.
There's little between the teams with Granada one place and three points above their visitors in La Liga so a draw on the night looks the likely result.
Well done to all the Wednesday winners including Greg, SlipsTips, HullShaker and Scott with his members bet.
My two trebles were losers despite backing against Celtic – I didn't see Rangers losing at home to Hamilton although I couldn't have backed the Ibrox men at around 1-9.
