It was three out of four for the British clubs on Thursday night as all but Leicester City joined Spurs in the Europa League draw which takes place at lunchtime on Friday.

Arsenal did it the hard way, coming from behind to qualify 4-3 against Benfica. Rangers impressed once more with another goalfest at Ibrox to progress 9-5 on aggregate at the expense of Antwerp. Man Utd coasted through with a 0-0 draw to win 4-0 on aggregate but Leicester were turned over on their own patch by Slavia Prague

With no seeding or country protection we should see a few cracking ties come out the bag.

Friday's Tips

On Friday The Brian Clough Trophy is at stake as well as three Championship points when Derby County host Nottingham Forest at Pride Park. Forest are the current holders and are unbeaten in seven in this fixture. But Derby have been in good winning form under Wayne Rooney, especially at home where they've won their last four.

Chris Hughton is doing a solid job at Forest too, especially against teams in and around them which has helped them get out of trouble. They've W9 D4 L2 this season against teams currently in the bottom-half. Five of the last 10 meetings have been drawn and a share of the spoils could suit both sides.

Hearts have another Friday night appointment in front of the BBC Scotland cameras. They've been far from impressive in recent weeks and won't relish a trip up to Inverness, although the home side haven't won any of their last four at home and will be missing gaffer John Robertson who is taking some time out for compassionate leave. It's likely to be another low-scoring tight affair.

In Germany Eintracht Frankfurt visit Werder Bremen live on BT Sport 2. The Eagles are the form team in the Bundesliga and haven't been beaten in the league since mid-December (W9 D2). They were deserved winners against Bayern Munich last weekend and look good value at 3/4 to win in Bremen where the home side have won just twice this season at the Weser Stadium.

The hosts have kept just four clean sheets and shipped four goals last week at Hoffenheim while Frankfurt have score two or more in their last 11 Bundesliga matches.

Jamie Kennedy includes Frankfurt in his Acca for Friday night too. It's a five-fold acca that pays 7/1.

    Quite a few that look tight, apart from City –

    West Brom v Brighton
    Leeds v Villa
    Newcastle v Wolves
    Palace v Fulham
    Leicester v Arsenal
    Chelsea v Man Utd
    Everton v Southampton
    City v West Ham

    Werder Bremen vs Eintracht Frankfurt
    Bundesliga 🇩🇪
    Friday 26th February, 19:30 ⏰

    Bremen have only won 2 of their 10 Bundesliga home games losing 4.
    Bremen have lost 2 and drew 1 at home to sides in the top half.
    Bremen have conceded 2+ in all 4 of their defeats at home.

    Frankfurt are the Bundesliga’s form side winning 9 and drawing 1 of their last 10 games.
    Frankfurt have won 5 out of 7 away to sides in the bottom half.
    Frankfurt have scored 2+ in 8 of their 11 away game including all 5 of their victories.

    Unsurprisingly I’m keen on a Frankfurt win tonight and I know I won’t be the only one. Frankfurt are on an incredible run of form right now including a 2-1 victory over champions Bayern Munich last week. Bremen however, got hammered 4-0 away to hoffenheim last time out and haven’t got a great home record. Therefore, I’m on a Frankfurt win and for them to grab a couple of goals.

      Sorry mate half sleeping I read that as the Qatar game. Can’t make my mind up about oz yet, couple of weeks ago idve said fire the mortgage on btts/over 2.5, all 5 Perth games have seen it with 3 going over 3.5 too but 3 blanks in a row for Brisbane doesn’t inspire me with confidence, plus Perth have had a 3 week break and they will absolutely have been working on their defending in that time. Think this will be one I’ll take a back seat on and kick myself when the goals fly in 😂😂

    Good evening
    Lovely to see how it really is different this time. Even the site picking up my side ^^
    Due to a touch of superstition I couldn’t post before the bayern game last week but we were 150 for the title now we’re down to 80 (@tipico germany). With Bayern and Leipzig still on international duty… Just sayin’ ;)
    But back to reality…

    Eintracht Frankfurt to win & over 1,5tgs… Super Single could be my NAP. I just can’t see it not happening.
    With André Silva returning to full throttle training, Sow back after 5 yellows, Younes getting better each game.

    Also, because too big to ignore.
    Some small interest on:
    2:0 HC Frankfurt WIN pays 5.50 (@tipico germany)
    Should max. be around 3.80 imo

    Best of luck with your bets!

  36. sean567 3 months ago

    Saturday morning A league tips
    2 matches tomorrow in oz, first up sees western Sydney wanderers take on Adelaide. Contrasting form for these 2, wsw are unbeaten in 8, while Adelaide have lost 4 of their last 6, and have conceded 12 goals in their last 3 away games. Bookies make the home men favourites and I’d have to agree and if you believe in following trends then those last 8 games for WSW read WDWDWDWD- surely a W must be next. Despite the obvious differences in form theres probably not actually much between these 2 and I fancy another hard fought game which leads me to 1 thing- cards. Although neither are particularly dirty teams they both have a player inside the top 10 for cards shown this season, graham do trans and joe calletti and they will be in direct opposition to each other. Wouldn’t be a surprise to see either or both find their way into the refs book. Alongside this info is the no of cards these sides have received, wsw have 17 in 8 games, Adelaide its 15 in 8 so both are around the 2 per game mark and that’ll do me if they keep that going.
    For the 2nd match where Melbourne victory take on western United I’m inclined to wait for team news. When I saw the victory starting line up midweek I thought they looked like they were finally getting towards putting their first choice XI on the pitch, only the full backs were missing and then they had to make 3 subs by half time 2 of which were central defenders so they could have possibly their entire first choice back 4 missing tomorrow and it’s because of this I’ll be waiting on the line ups. The other injury was to Marco rojas, a major creative player for them and if he’s missing plus their defence then it will dramatically alter their chances.

    Advised tips
    Wsw v Adelaide
    Wsw double chance
    Wsw over 0.5 cards
    Adelaide over 1.5 cards
    23/20 bet 365

    Over 0.5 fh cards
    Over 1.5sh cards
    5/6 hills

    Each team 20+ bp
    6/4 bet 365 (using betbuilder at hills it’s 13/10 on #your odds it’s only 5/4- skybet are only evens)

    As with most of my tips if you don’t want to follow all these are ranked in order of my preference.

    Melbourne victory v western United
    Advised tip- wait for team news. If victory are close to full strength then I fancy them to get something out this game despite their lowly position and gestede to get on the scoresheet.

    Liverpool Montevideo
    Uruguayan Primera Division

    BTTS 8-11 (DOUBLE STAKE as it’s under evens) @hills.

    Side bet
    BTTS and over 2.5 goals 5-4 (SKYBET).

    Basic reason,*** Liverpool seen btts and overs in their last home 13 games ***

    Penerol are a bit more careful in defending so hoping Liverpool drag them into a shootout.

    One Drawback is Liverpool played a Copa play off game 2 days ago.

    Been on btts overs on this teams home games for a while now so keeping going until they let me down.
