There's much to look forward to this weekend with the return of domestic football, nothing moreso than the homecoming of Cristiano Ronaldo which will be sure to grab the backpage headlines – The Portuguese hitman is just 4/11 to mark his return with a goal!

There's also a few intriguing Premier League fixtures between Leicester and Man City as well as Liverpool's visit to Leeds Utd, and in Scotland match of the weekend is at Tynecastle where the Premiership's top two, Hearts and Hibs, meet in the Edinburgh Derby on Sunday.

But it kicks-off on Friday in relatively low-key fashion with a Championship clash between Birmingham City and Derby County in front of the Sky Sports cameras. Both sides can be relatively pleased with their starts to the season having each lost just once in their first five matches.

Derby have had the upper hand in this fixture, winning seven of the last 10 meetings between the side but the did lose when the two sides last met back in April. Lifelong Bluenose Troy Deeney could make his dream Brum debut and that added firepower could see them take all three points here at 17/20. KevMac has found three betting angles in his match preview.

Jamie Kennedy trawls Europe for his Friday Acca which pays 15/2. His goals four-fold takes in matches in England, Ireland, Belgium and France.

Upcoming Matches & Tips

Golf Tips

The Caddy's headline tip got off to an amazing start at the BMW PGA Championship on Friday. Christiaan Bezuidenhout shot a brilliant 64 on the opening day to share the lead at with Kiradech Aphibarnrat on -8.

The South African who was tipped 30/1 is now 3/1 favourite to win the tournament and treated fans to one fo the shots of the day, slam-dunking a chip from just off the green.

Fingers crossed Cristiaan can keep up the kind of form he found on Thursday for the rest of the tournament and land another winner for The Caddy!

    ◾A Goal in Both Halves Treble

  3. cockerspaniel 4 months ago

    Lorient v Lille
    Has to be cards
    Lorient tend to pick up a few cards on occasion
    Over 4 cards in the match 11/10
    Each team over 1 card 6/4
    1 + corner each team in each half & 10 + booking points each team 1/1 Skybet

    • Lynner73 4 months ago

      This is what I came too highlight too. Lorient are top of both the Y&R tables,having had 16 yellows and 2 red in 4 matches. Lille 3rd highest yellows with 11. Tonight’s referee is the man who sent off 5 in one match towards the end of last season and subsequently flashed a red card in each of his 3 ligue 1 outings since that match.

      BTTS & over 1 card each is 5/2

      Both teams red card 33/1 for a wild one

    • cockerspaniel 4 months ago

      Good luck Lynner . You can get 50/1 for your double red with PaddyPower mate

  4. bigwigg 4 months ago

  5. admin 4 months ago

    Just a heads-up, SBK currently have Cristiano Ronaldo at 7/4 to score anytime tomorrow. He’s as short as 4/11 at Bet365.

    Not sure if it’s an error on SBK‘s part?

    • maccathered 4 months ago

      Gonna be interesting when Fernandes was the main man,no longer will he be on free kicks.Ronaldo will take everything including pens.I can see some unrest in the camp Pogba and Fernandes.

    • hudson 4 months ago

      Fernandes will be used to it with the national team and Progba throws his toys out the pram if it rains too hard – Ronaldo could be the catalyst for an unlikely tilt at the title (8/1 SBK + Betfair). I expect them to be a lot closer than I did 2 weeks ago

    • old al 4 months ago

      2/1 @ Skybet

  6. Craggslar 4 months ago

    Sligo v St Patricks

    Sligo have went over 2.5 goals in 4/5 last home games.

    St Patricks have went over 2. 5 goals in 5/5.

    Taking a punt on over 2.5 goals at 2.50.

    Also doubling it with both teams over 1 card in Lorient v Lille which comes in at 6.25

  7. blairkev 4 months ago

    Both skybet and William hill are boosting Ronaldo anytime tomorrow from 1/2 and 4/9 to 2/1 each.

    Skybet also boosting Kane to have a shot on target in spurs vs palace at 12.30 from 1/6 to evens.

    GIBH is either team scoring not just Birmingham as odds probably suggest but thought I’d make that clear

    Nothing doing in Costa Rica last night 👎

    Onto Friday evening and it’s all eyes on the Nordic and South American leagues for me…

    Icelandic 4 Deild for the Nap; the regional divisions of the nation’s football and home of scorelines that can make your eyes (and the bookies) water!

    VALUR / KH U19 VS. HAUKAR / KÁ U19 

    The previous two meetings in 2021 produced scorelines of 0-7 and 2-4 so a 6.5 goals per game average is non too shabby!

    Haukar may be rock bottom having amassed an impressive g/d of -53 after 16 games but Valur’s Youth are hardly tight at the back so expect both sides to chip in:

    OVER 5.5 GOALS
    (6/5, bet365) NAP ⭐⭐⭐

    Colombian Primera B for the Nb and Longshot and fancy the hosts to grab at least a brace, Tigres to possibly chip in and a few corners thrown in for good measure:

    CORTULUÁ VS. TIGRES (9.00pm)

    OVER 2.5 GOALS
    (5/4, bet365) NB ⭐⭐

    OVER 2.5 GOALS
    (7/2, bet365) LONGSHOT ⭐

    Best of luck!
