GAMES pretty much went to plan on Tuesday night with four home wins in the FA Cup and a couple of minor surprises on the Continent.
My FA Cup Top Treble of over 2.5 goals at Brentford, Newport to score and QPR draw no bet landed at 27-10 but the both to score treble was a Toulouse goal short.
That second treble had already been reduced to a double with the Stranraer game off and the loser was a disappointment as I would have taken the battle of the Bees but didn't want to risk two lines with Griffin Park goals.
Anyway it's nice to make a profit for the second day running and hopefully it will be three in a row with the Scottish Premiership dominating the card as well as Everton v Man City.
There is one more FA Cup replay and Kevinmac has posted a detailed preview on West Brom v Brighton.
There has been a lot of talk on the site about the Man City game with maccathered and others suggesting Everton won't try against the side fighting it out with Liverpool for the title.
I can't see it but I reckon City will be comfortable winners at Goodison against a side that lost 3-1 at home to Wolves at the weekend. City are of course short at around so take -1 at 5-6 with Ladbrokes and back Sergio Aguero to score first at 7-2 with Betfred – he has struck the opener in his last two games inside the first minutes. He is a second Super Single but only do it if he starts.
Barcelona v Real Madrid is probably the biggest game of the night with the giants meeting in the first leg of the Spanish Cup semis. Real famously were battered 5-1 at the Nou Camp on their last visit back in October and revenge will be on their minds.
Real have boosted confidence with five wins in a row but Barca still lead them by eight points in the title race and should edge the first leg. However, goals are the way to go. The last seven at the Nou Camp have brought up btts while all but one has gone over 2.5 goals.
There are four German Cup games and I'm taking a chance on Bayern Munich bouncing back from Saturday's defeat at Leverkusen to win at Hertha Berlin.
Bayern have seven points behind Dortmund and while they haven't given up their Bundesliga hopes yet the cup may provide their best chance of a trophy. They lost 2-0 in Berlin back in September but prior to that had won three in a row in the Olympic Stadium.
Hertha sit mid-table after just one win in six and while it won't be easy Bayern should get the job done.
