CELTIC fans lost the UEFA Cup Final to Porto in Seville – but tonight they can make money on Porto and Sevilla.
Let's look at Porto v Gil Vicente first of all. The home side are no bigger than 1-6 at Stan James to keep pace with Benfica at the top of the table.
That means the majority of us must look elsewhere to back a side that is protecting a 100 per cent home record. Porto have won eight out of eight, scoring 21 and conceding just once.
It's a remarkable record but Porto have scored more than two goals in only one of their last six outings. Also Gil Vicente held them 0-0 away – one of only three occasions when Porto have dropped points this season.
So it's simple for me. Jackson Martinez to score first against Beira Mar was one of my Super Singles last week and I'll be on the the Colombian striker tonight.
Having conceded just that once at home you have to expect Porto to win to nil and they are 8-11 at Ladbrokes to do so.
There is on guy on this site who often backs teams to be leading after 30 minutes. It's not one of my favourites but you can see Porto being ahead n the half-hour mark and that pays 11-10 at Ladbrokes.
Sevilla have won just one in six and lost to Granada at home last season. Granada are in relegation trouble but have lost just one of their last five and beat Rayo Vallecano at home last time out.
I'm not sure whether I want to be on Sevilla so short but I'll be looking at under 2.25 goals at 13-10 with bet365.
After the excitement of the weekend's FA Cup ties it's back to the bread and butter of League Two for tonight's live action.
Torquay and Exeter drew 1-1 when they met recently and this time Exeter can the better of their rivals with home advantage. Exeter are a best 1-1 with Coral, William Hill and Stan James.
Former Rangers forward Alan Gow, also the penalty taker, could return to the starting line-up after injury and if he does consider him to score at 2-1 with Stan James. Gow's career has taken some strange paths but on his day he's too good for this division.
Martinez to score first
Under 2.5 goals
