IT'S a big night of football with the resumption of the Champions League taking pride of place.
First up is an all-English battle between Spurs and Man City while Ajax entertain Juventus. I've posted my thoughts on both games in a Champions League preview.
Elsewhere there is the first part of a full midweek English Championship card and I'll be taking a close look at the games in the morning. Usual problem for me is too many games and a lot Iike so it's a matter of picking out the right ones.
In League One Sunderland v Burton is the big game and while the home men have put themselves into a good position they won't get it easy against a side who beat Barnsley at the weekend and are in good form. Burton have netted 11 in three successive wins while the home men have hit nine in four.
There are big games in the Scottish Championship affecting the top and bottom. Ross County can all but clinch the title with a home win against Dunfermline and I've decided to back them as the Super Single at 6-5 with Betway.
They've beaten the Pars, who have little to play for, three times this season and recent home form is excellent. That injury-time equaliser against Dundee Utd on Friday was crucial and took some pressure off and County can perform well tonight as a result.
Just four points separate the bottom five and of the sides go down automatically. Alloa gave their hopes a massive lift with a stunning win at Falkirk on Saturday and travel to a Morton side nervously looking over their shoulder.
Alloa are pretty big at 13-5 with Marathonbet and I can see them avoiding defeat. Queen of the South are still in trouble and could pick up something at an Ayr side safely in the play-offs.
For a Top Treble I'm taking Alloa +1, Swansea and Derby +1. The Rams face a Blackburn side with four defeats in five and it looks like two from Derby, Bristol City and Aston Villa for the final play-off spots. Reckon Derby will win but playing safer with +1.
It was a toss-up between Swansea and Sheff Wed for the third pick but I'm going with the Swans who have won two home games in a row convincingly and tackle a Stoke side whose weekend win ended a run of 0-0 draws. Swansea have only pride to play for but are playing well with Wales winger Dan James in top form.
On Sunday night I'd planned to do a Chelsea/Bologna double but then added Hamburg and it was the Germans who let me down for a treble with a terrible defeat at home to Madgeburg.
Well done to all the winners including Greg who alerted a lot of people to the fact Rangers reserves were a massive 8-1 at home to Hibs – even though team news suggested they'd be weakened. And one of kevinmac's tips was Hazard to score and what a first goal that was.
