IT'S Champions League Final day and more importantly it's HullShaker Day as we welcome a familiar name to the mrfixitstips family.
Regulars will have been aware of the Bury fan's tips for sometime and everyone – except maybe craneguy – will be pleased to see his name up in lights.
He's been smashing it recently in all sorts of leagues and today has a tip from Iceland. HullShaker will continue to post his tips as a comment in the way Greg does and when possible a post will be created or they'll be added to the latest one.
I thank him for his past efforts and wish him happy punting in the future.
HullShaker says: “It’s always difficult when the whole of Europe is poised on a knife-edge pondering the complexities around a game of football featuring two of the greatest sides in the modern era. Such is life following the Icelandic Deild 1 and I’ll try not to let the media flurry blur my views.”
Thor v Fram (4pm)
I’m taking‘s early markets on here and have a sneaking suspicion there may well be goals in this one.
Fram have notched at least a brace in 5 of the last 7 H2Hs and their strong start to the campaign has seen them score 3, 3 and 2 team goals. Their form makes for decent value given the bookies have both teams 29-20 for the win.
Thor are more than capable of finding the net though and have done so 11 times across the last 6 H2Hs – well worth noting these games have featured a match goal history of 2-2, 1-3, 2-1, 0-0, 2-3, 4-3.
Match goals look good and over 3.5 pays a tempting 6-4 and while I wouldn’t put anyone off I’m taking this one.
- Fram to score over 1.5 goals (5pm)
Real Madrid v Liverpool (7.45pm)
So turning to the big one and I have two selections for the CL Final and there are certain things that have a high probability of happening this evening – these are my top 4:
1. BTTS in the 1st half
2. Salah scoring
3. Ronaldo scoring
4. Over 3.5 MGS
Liverpool to score first half (10-11)
Rolled up with bet365's BetBuilder it pays 152 (maybe better prices elsewhere) and might not be too far away.
Aragua v Carabobo (10pm)
It’s the away team that interests me here and although both are in fine form Carabobo are looking tip top with a five-point lead on Zamora at the head of the table.
The visitors have scored two in 11 of their last 16 games and most recently have hit 3-4-0-2-3-3 team goals in their last six consecutive matches.
They hold the bragging rights over Aragua and have won five of the last six H2Hs since 2016 having scored at least two goals in four of the last seven match-ups.
This is leg one and although I’m not a huge fan of the first tie I can see Carabobo wanting to make an impact ahead of the return fixture
- Carabobo to score over 1.5 team goals
