It was a tale of two very contrasting semi-finals on Thursday night in the Europa League.

Man Utd and Roma produce another goalfest, a total of 13 scored across the two legs with United notching a 8-5 aggregate win to book their place in the Gdansk finale.

Things were altogether a bit more nervy at the Emirates where Arsenal couldn't break down the Villarreal defence and find that goal they so deperately needed to qualify. The 0-0 draw meant the Spanish side broke the Premier league's dominance of the European finals this season and will face Ole Gunnar Solskjaer side on May 26th. United a 4/9 to lift the trophy, Villarreal 9/5.

On Friday we return to domestic action with all the major leagues reaching the final stretch of the season with plenty to play for.

Sky Sports live match is from the King Power Stadium where Leicester City can take a step closer to ensuring Champions League football next season with a win over Newcastle United. With Man Utd, Chelsea and Spurs still to come for the Foxes this will have been penciled in by Brendan Rodgers as three must-win points.

It's no surprise to see Leicester as short priced favourites but 2/5 looks a bit too skinny. Man in form Kelechi Ihenacho has scored 10 in his last 12 games and is even money to get his name on the scoresheet once more. Mark Walker likes the look of goals in the game and has tipped two angles in his match preview.

SlipsTips on the other hand has found a cards angle that's supported by a range of stats.

Check out our other match previews for Friday from the early kick-off in Asutralia to matches from Ligue 1 and the German Bundesliga in the evening.

Also, don't miss Desmond's Goals Tips for the weekend as tries to repeat his brilliant 66/1 winning acca from last weekend.

      Jablonec vs Teplice
      First League 🇨🇿
      Friday 7th May, 17:00 ⏰

      2nd place Jablonec are the form team in Czech Republic. They’re unbeaten in their last 10 games winning 8 of those. They are particularly strong at home winning 12 of their 15 league games including their last 5. Teplice are winless in their last 8 and have only won once in their last 16. They also struggle on the road losing 9 of their 15. Jablonec won away to their opponents 0-5 in the season and whilst I’m not saying it’ll be the same score line, they should comfortably beat a side who’ve already lost 5-1, 7-0 and 7-2 to both Prague sides and Viktoria Plzen.

      Hannover vs Darmstadt
      Bundesliga 2 🇩🇪
      Friday 7th May, 17:30 ⏰

      Two mid table sides meet here in what could be an entertaining match. Both sides have scored in all 9 of Hannover’s recent matches including their last 5 at home with 21 goals scored in those games. Both sides have also scored in Darmstadt’s last 8 games and their last 6 away. Darmstadt have only failed to score twice on the road this season but have kept only one clean sheet. Both sides have scored in their last 6 meetings, let’s hope it’s 7.

      Sochi vs Rotor Volgograd
      Premier League 🇷🇺
      Friday 7th May, 18:00 ⏰

      4th placed Sochi host 2nd from bottom Volgograd where they are rightfully favourites. Champions Zenit are the only visiting side to come away with 3 points in Sochi’s 14 home games. They’ve won 9 of them including 6 of their 7 where they’ve conceded only 3 goals (2 to Zenit & one to CSKA). Volgograd on the other hand have lost 6 of their last 7. They’ve lost 7 of their 13 away games including 5 of their last 6 with an aggregate score of 17-3. Sochi won the earlier meeting 1-2 and I’m expecting them to win again here, perhaps a little more comfortably.

      Hi Sean, how do you see the Adelaide game for cards?…GL on todays picks mate

    • sean567 5 months ago

      Wouldn’t put anyone off that market at all Pete, but the bookies know it as well. Odds on for 5 in all the places I looked, and even trying a combo with goals or corners it was still skinny. Looked at hills for the over 0.5 fh over 1.5 sh combo and that was shorter than 1/2 so I’ve left them out of my picks today, although I do think we’ll see them. Tough trying to find value today when it can be an uncertain market like that. If I had to pick anything it would’ve been over 1.5 cards each half as a punt.

    • kf 5 months ago

      Cheers mate, that’s saved me a bit of time. GL

      Corners in and the over 1.5 cards each half I mentioned in as well, doesn’t look like there’s gonna be goals tho 👎🏻

    ATP Madrid Tennis

    John Isner v Dominic Thiem

    I’ve had a good deal of success following Isner so far this week and see no reason why it shouldn’t continue today. The big serving American has hit a massive EIGHTY NINE aces in his past 3 matches!!! Losing only 2 service games and beating two top 10 ranked players in the process.

    Thiem is the favourite and the better shot maker but will he be able to return enough points to break Isner?

    I’m really liking the looks of a few bets in this one.

    Total games over 23.5 @20/21 (NAP)
    Set 1 total games over 10.5 @20/21 (NB)

    First set correct score
    Thiem 7-6 Isner @ 3-1
    Isner 7-6 Thiem @ 5-1

    ⚽️ Dutch Eerste Division Tonight 🇳🇱⚽️

    Helmond v Top Oss

    Over 2.5/3.0 Asian Goal Line @ 2.06 with Bet Victor – NAP

    Reasoning – end of season mid table clash for these two teams which bookies seem to have priced up according to recent low scoring games involving Top Oss. Over 2.5 in any Dutch game is more likely than not for me and this bet will see a half stake win if we get 3 goals and a full win if 4 or more.

    Also liking the fact we have all ten games playing at once so will looking at some small stakes bets around total goals (hopefully William hill great sports offers has something) and over 1.5 in all ten games pays 9/2 with sport nation which I think is worth a go also and will be my Next Best

    Best of Luck

    BTTS is evens and btts and overs 11-10 so not enough difference in price to take these.

    All about attitude as this tie is over, hopefully Tupi give it a go as international do tend to concede and may let their guard down with such a healthy lead .

    International conceded in 10 of their last 12.
    Tupi scored in 7 of their 8 games played since Jan 2020.
