BARCELONA and Ajax are the first Champions League semi-finalists and the line-up will be completed on Wednesday night.
I tipped Barca to win and over 2.5 goals at Juventus v Ajax for an 8-5 winner – my only bet of the day.
It was easy for Barca but what about Ajax? The Dutch, inspired by a group of kids including teen skipper Matthjis de Ligt, blew away Juve in the second half and could have scored five or six. Their football was brilliant and Man City or Spurs won't relish facing them in the semis.
City host the Londoners who are 1-0 up while Porto try to overturn a 2-0 deficit to Liverpool. I've posted a separate Champions League preview here.
My double was one of the tips on my CL preview where I also tipped Messi and Ronaldo first scorers. I advised the double in the Daily Record at 10-1 as the Star Bet of the Day.
Well done to all the other winners on Tuesday including Scott with another success on the members bet and he's in great form. He's posted more bets for tonight including a 10-1 BetBuilder on Man City vs Spurs.
Other games on Wednesday include Lazio v Udinese in Serie A and Nantes v PSG in Ligue 1.
Lazio have a game in hand over the rest of the Europa League contenders while Udinese are fighting to beat the drop. It's Udinese's away form – one win in 17 – that makes me believe this is a step too far from them even if they showed signs of improvement in recent weeks.
In France PSG need a point at Nantes to clinch the title and I think they'll win after being embarrassed 5-1 at Lille at the weekend.
This is their third attempt at clinching the championship and they still hold a 17-point lead. PSG have won their last six at Nantes and in normal circumstances would be about 1-2 or 1-3 to win but you can have just under evens so worth the risk.
Lazio and PSG are fairly obvious picks so let's hope they don't let us down. I'm adding them to Man City to make a treble.
