IT'S been said there's more chance of aliens landing on earth than Barcelona losing to Cordoba in the Spanish Cup tonight.
The Nou Camp giants beat the second-tier minnows 2-0 away in the first leg and are expected to increase their advantage despite fielding a generally reserve team.
Barca are no bigger than 1-10 to win and it's difficult to work out what handicap they'll cover with the tie already in the bag.
One star who will play is David Villa who has been linked with a move away from Spain. The World Cup star is 7-2 at Paddy Power to score first and I'll definitely be on him at 4-5 with BetVictor to net at any time.
Atletico Madrid take a 3-0 lead to Getafe and again will field a weakened team so I'm leaving it alone. Look at Mallorca who won 2-1 at Sevilla last night after a 5-0 home defeat.
Real Betis are short but not too short at 1-2 with BetVictor and William Hill to beat Las Palmas after a 1-1 draw away. The home men need to put on a show after losing their last home game to Zaragoza and I can see them winning by at least two (23-20, Coral).
In England the one game is a Johnstone Paint Trophy semi-final first leg between Coventry and Preston.
At this stage of the tournament you'll normally see full teams being put out because the next stage is a Wembley final and a bit of cash.
The Sky Blues are just 1-2 at Blue Square to qualify but are in a degree of disarray with boss Mark Robins being linked to the Doncaster job and star man David McGoldrick leaving after a loan spell that seen him net 16 goals in 22 games.
Robins has replaced McGoldrick with Leon Clarke who had been on loan at Scunthorpe and he is 11-2 at bet365 to bang in the opener.
Clarke's a decent signing but not as good as McGoldrick and if the Robins' rumours affect the players there is every chance of Preston returning to Deepdale on level terms or even in front.
My Tuesday and Wednesday Super Singles were draw no bet – with Bradford winning and AC Milan drawing over 90 minutes – and I'm going for a third in a row.
Preston draw no bet
