IT'S a big night for Nigel Clough and after all last week's FA Cup shocks I wonder if anyone is going for a Burton.
Clough's League One shocktroops face an almost impossible task away to Man City in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final and I've posted a separate preview.
Burton are as big as 75-1 at McBookie but I don't see anyone backing them against the champions who made eight changes and still thumped Rotherham 7-0 in the FA Cup.
Pep Guardiola will field a strong side and for me it's a matter of how many they win by. The goal line is set at four so City -3 pays 6-5 at Paddy Power and City -2 is one for accas at 4-9 with Ladbrokes and bet365.
Elsewhere it's Chelsea U-21s at home to Peterborough in the EFL Trophy and there are Spanish Cup games including Girona v Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid v Leganes. In the French League Cup we have Monaco v Rennes and PSG v Guingamp.
For the likes of PSG teams need to be checked but they usually go strong and should be covering the -2 handicap like City. PSG are untouchable in France and remain unbeaten. They have netted 30 league goals in nine at home and 33 in their last 10 at home to Ligue 1 basement boys Guingamp.
For a Super Single I'm taking a chance on Man City -2 and PSG -2 Asian at evens – should land as long as PSG play at least one of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani.
My Top Treble is extremely risky on cup ties in France and Spain. Start with Rennes not to lose at Monaco in the French League Cup. The sides are in contrasting form with Thierry Henry unable to get Monaco out of trouble and they've won just one out of their last 20 at home.
Henry's boosted by the signing of Cesc Fabregas but he won't join until the summer when he is really needed now. Rennes are on a run of six Ligue 1 wins and will head to the principality full of confidence and should at least avoid defeat – unless they play their stiffs.
That's the concern with all cup games so again I'll say check teams if you can before placing the bet. My other two are Getafe at home to Real Valladolid and Real Madrid at home to Leganes.
Getafe were impressive in losing 2-1 to Barcelona at the weekend and are enjoying a good season while Valladolid are as usual struggling.
It's must-win for Real with boss Santiago Scolari on the brink after a 2-0 home defeat to Real Sociedad left them down in fifth and trailing Barcelona by 10. This could be Real's best chance of a trophy and they can't slip with the first leg at home.
Tuesday's treble was another near miss with my 43-10 effort needing a Newcastle Under-21s goal at Sunderland.
Well done to all the winners including HullShaker with another beauty with his Bury scorer.
