IT was a pretty quiet Tuesday night especially on the goals front and sometimes that happens when weakened sides are played in cup ties.
I didn't fancy much but expected Livingston to beat Falkirk so that cost me a 2pts Super Single. My Top Treble was put up late and I needed a Stenhousmuir winner at Cowdenbeath to land a winner.
Well done to anyone who cashed in and I haven't yet checked Greg's goals result at St Mirren Under-20s.
Wednesday's a better night with two more Carabao Cup quarter-finals – Chelsea v Bournemouth and Bristol City v Man United – as well as ties in Italy, Germany and Holland. There's a full Ligue 1 card and two La Liga games.
Both Chelsea and Bournemouth will rotate their squads but the Blues should be too strong.
Paul Pogba could start for Man United and Zlatan Ibrahimovic may feature at a high-flying Championship side missing six players through injury. Again United should get the job done to make it a star-studded semi-final line-up alongside Arsenal and Man City.
Celtic try to bounce back from their mauling by Hearts at home to Partick Thistle and I've posted a separate preview.
So plenty to look at and I'm going with top teams in the cup in the belief they will play strong enough line-ups to win. Taking a fivefold with moneyback insurance.
For the Super Single I'm backing Guingamp, who haven't conceded in four, at home to a St Etienne side who have taken three points out of 27.
