AFTER two days of profit it was back to the drawing board with Hearts' failure beating my main treble and St Etienne downing the French treble at the first hurdle.
Hearts weren't the only surprise with Rangers crashing to Kilmarnock after Jermain Defoe opened the scoring on his debut. Incredibly the winner came from Jordan Jones who will join Rangers in the summer and he's bound to get a hot reception now.
Celtic were easy winners against St Mirren and just four points separates the top four in a fascinating title race.
It was a better night for goals though and well done to anyone who profited. Greg was of course spot on by backing St Johnstone to beat Livingston.
Not a great deal to look at on Thursday but there is the second semi-final of the Carabao Cup with Spurs taking a 1-0 lead to Chelsea. Should be a cracker and maybe both to score is the way to go. Scott Allot has posted a preview.
In the Spanish Cup it's Real Madrid v Girona and Espanyol v Betis and there are more French Cup games to flummox us.
And talking of goals I flagged them up in Ajax v Heerenveen games at the weekend and it ended 4-4 in the league. They meet again in the cup quarter-finals and should be goals galore. We know all some of the stats but they are remarkable with Ajax netting 4+ in their last five meetings and 95 in 30 home games against their opponents.
I'm happy to take both to score at a respectable price and as has been pointed out Ajax may rest a couple with a vital league game against Feyenoord at the weekend. Also dc john boy pointed out Heerenveen to score at 4-5 was a great price – best I can see now is 4-6 so I'll stick with both to score.
I'm adding btts at Real Madrid v Girona for a double. Real won 4-1 at Girona at the start of the season and last season beat them 6-3 at the Bernabeu. The sides have only met three times and all three have seen btts and over 2.5 goals. Overs is a much shorter price so I'll take a chance on btts.
Like Ajax there's a chance Real will rest a few – and remember ties are over two legs – but a cup win is important as they're 10 points off the pace in La Liga.
