IT was a thrilling night in the Champions League and I enjoyed watching Spurs v Barcelona as much as any game recently.
Some of the goals were brilliant and there was a Lionel Messi masterclass as the Argentine ace turned back the clock with a display no one could have handled.
This wasn't the Barca we've witnessed in La Liga in recent weeks and it just goes to show how desperate they are to wrestle the Champions League trophy away from Real Madrid.
My Super Single double was a winner thanks to Atletico Madrid and Dortmund but the goals treble was a loser and I'm sure many were surprised by Napoli's 1-0 defeat of Liverpool although it looked well deserved.
Well done to all the winners including Greg and HullShaker. As Greg says the fact bet365 pay out if a team takes a 2-0 lead is worth noting – it's paid off for him the last two nights in the cases of Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest.
Tonight it's the turn of the Europa League to take centre stage and I've posted a preview featuring Red Bull Salzburg v Celtic and Rangers v Rapid Vienna. Chelsea are a short price at home to Vidi and Arsenal should win away to Qarabag.
I've had a look at most of the matches tonight and of of course with many team news is vital.
First up is a both to score treble starting with the early Astana v Rennes match. Astana should beat a side who have lost nine out of 12 in Europe away but the French side are usually good for a goal and have scored in every game this season.
Ludogerets are better travellers but face a tough test at on-from Zurich who are unbeaten in eight at home in the group stage. The Bulgarians have won 10 and drawn two of their last 13 and again both should score here.
I often wary about the Europa League and my only other bet is a Top Treble on the 5.55pm games. I'm starting with Zenit at home to Slavia Prague but checking line-ups might be advisable as they're too big at evens. Slavia are minus strikers Stanislav Tecl and Milan Skoda so as long as Zenit are focused they should win.
Add Red Bull Salzburg at home to Celtic and that's reasoned on the separate preview and take Arsenal, who have won seven in a row and have taken a strong squad to Azerbaijan, at Qarabag.
