IT was a night for the big guns but as usual one was a letdown.
While Liverpool, Celtic and Rangers eased to comfortable league wins not many expected Man United to get a result at Man City after losing the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final 3-1.
But United gave it a go and recovered a bit of pride as City squeaked through 3-2 on aggregate after a 1-0 defeat.
I left Rangers, who were too short, off my moneyback fivefold but that was beaten by Lille early and then City.
Alfredo Morelos to score first was the Super Single but the Colombian wasn't risked by Steven Gerrard as he had a slight niggle so the bet is void. That means the Bonkers Bet was a losing single.
Well done to any winners including Scott with his Liverpool -1 VIP members bet – and that's six winners out of seven. Greg, HullShaker and SlipsTips also had good nights so well done lads.
It's all about cup games on Thursday with Barcelona v Leganes and Mirandes v Sevilla as well as Nice v Lyon. Not much else to look with a treble on Barca, Sevilla and Lyon paying 7-2 at Coral.
It was going to be a no-bet day for me but I've got two days of the month remaining to try to clear losses so I'm having a small bet on goals. Difficult to research goals for cup games but all look possible as does the Bundesliga 2 game between Hamburg v Nurnberg.
My fourfold has to be for low stakes and is a mixture between over 1.5 and over 2.5 goals.
2pts Goals Bet
- Barcelona v Leganes over 2.5 goals (6pm)
- Hamburg v Nurnberg over 2.5 goals (7.30pm)
- Nice v Lyon over 1.5 goals (7.55pm)
- Mirandes v Sevilla over 1.5 goals (8pm)
- (3-1, bet365)
