IT'S all about Spurs v Man United on Sunday as we find out if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's improving team can handle the heat of facing a top side.
I've posted a separate preview and really fancy goals in the 4.30pm kick-off. The earlier game is Everton v Bournemouth and again there is a potential for goals and that's tipped by on-form Scott in his preview.
Elsewhere the focus is on Italy, Spain and France and not much else. Games include Barcelona v Eibar and Real Betis v Real Madrid as well as Napoli v Sassuolo in the Italian Cup. There are German Cup games and mr orange and Greg have put some thoughts on the Dutch lower-league games.
It was a wipe-out for me on another difficult card on Saturday with both my trebles producing two out of three and three out of five on the moneyback acca – the long shot moneyback acca on the VIP tips was a goal away from a 68-1 win. Sunderland were the Super Single and they led Luton for a long time before being pegged back.
Well done to all the winners including Greg, Desmond and Scott.
Today I'm not doing much but taking btts at Spurs and adding the games Bilbao and Toulouse for a treble. Bilbao lost 3-1 at home to Sevilla in the cup in midweek but rested players. They have won six out of seven at home to Sevilla in the league and scored in all seven.
Sevilla will be confident of picking up the points and I can't see them not scoring.
My third pick came down to Everton v Bournemouth, Nantes v Rennes or Toulouse v Strasbourg and I'm going with Toulouse. It was 2-2 last season and 1-1 in Strasbourg when the sides met earlier in the campaign.
Both have scored in four of Toulouse's last five and in five of Strasbourg's previous six.
For the Top Treble start with on-fire Rennes, unbeaten in seven, to avoid defeat at Nantes and add Greg's Everton who he says should beat a Bournemouth side without Callum Wilson and Josh King up top.
Complete the treble with Barcelona to beat Eibar and three or more match goals scored. In eight meetings at the Nou Camp the aggregate score is 28-4.
I'm putting up an early Super Single for the Australian Open tennis on Monday morning. Andy Murray could be playing his final match as he contemplates retiring with a hip injury that's left him suffering from chronic pain.
The former world No.1 would love to bow at Wimbledon but that looks unlikely and he admits he'll probably lose his first-round match to Roberto Bautista-Agut. The world No.23 beat Novak Djokovic last week while Murray could take just two games off the Serb in a practise match lasting one hour.
It's sad to see Murray end a glittering career in this way but I can't see any way he can win. In fact it will almost be a miracle if he takes a set and can only happen if his rival shows pity.
Not surprisingly the price on Bautista-Agut is dropping but you can still back him to win 3-0 at at 13-11 with Marathonbet. That's a Super Single for me and I'm almost covering the stake with 3-1 just in case Murray manages a set – any other result would be astonishing when you consider the pain he's in just tying his shoelaces.
