IT'S a big night in Europe with the Spanish and German leagues kicking off.
Short-priced favourites Bayern Munich get the Bundesliga under way at home to Bayer Leverkusen while La Liga is launched with Leganes v Alaves followed by Valencia v Real Betis.
Monaco travel to Metz and watch out for Greg's tips on Ligue 2 and possibly the Jupiler League openers in Holland which are usually good for goals.
Only UK game is Burton v Birmingham which looks an unders one while there is a League of Ireland card to consider.
I've been focusing on my Saturday tips and Daily Record column so not much chance to study Friday games but I have two tips both featuring Monaco – so it could be Monte Carlo or bust.
I don't have much to do to what's been written about Monaco. They have won 14 in a row in Ligue 1 and last season won 5-0 and 7-0 against Metz. They have started with two wins – Metz with two losses. The last five meetings have been won by Monaco by an aggregate 17-0.
For the Super Single back Monaco to win doubled with Valencia draw no bet. I expect Valencia to win but will keep the draw on side as it's the opener. Las Palmas have a new boss, have lost some players and could take time to get going.
It doesn't pay much but will wipe out the small Super Single deficit if it wins.
For the Treble add risk with Monaco -1, Valencia to win and both to score at Standard Liege v Zulte Waregem which has a history of goals.
Last night I was happy to risk 2pts on the Europa League and both bets went close but were ultimately losers. Fenerbahce were the only team to miss out on the 8-1 btts treble and a late equaliser by Sheriff at Legia Warsaw meant the moneyback fivefold went down instead of being void with three winners and Bruges being held at home to AEK Athens.
The Betting Club is still alive thanks to Athletic Bilbao draw no bet and it's been a slow build this week but I'm in no hurry with that one.
