WELL, my brief foray into the world of ‘unders’ betting went down like a rusty scalpel at a Bar Mitzvah and although the reasoning seemed sound, it turned out an absolute honker.
Well done to any winners last night and Kyle B take a bow on the bookings – magic stuff.
Not usually a massive fan of the Europa League but one game stands out on the betting front.
OLYMPIAKOS v AC MILAN (8pm)
This one is priced up fairly evenly for the winner and I can see why as there is an argument for both sides; the Greek side are no mugs and will have a hell of a crowd behind them whilst the Italians could dictate the game with a traditional defensive blockout and Higuain and Co up top to counter.
Progression-wise, Milan will go through with just a draw or even a narrow defeat with the hosts also still able to make it out alive but needing to win by 2 or more – so, it’s all to play for and I just cannot see Olympiakos rolling over in front of a home crowd in what could well be a tasty encounter:

It’s difficult to not picture both sides on the scoresheet; Olympiakos have hit the net in 90% of their last 10 matches whilst Milan have scored in their last 5 European games and kept just one clean sheet – both sides scoring is priced around 3-5 but is available at a better looking 4-5 with Coral and Ladbrokes and that’s the main bet for me.
