IT was a day Man City laid down a marker in the title race while there was no romance of the Cup in Scotland.
City and Sergio Aguero destroyed Chelsea 6-0 to show how desperate they are to hold on to the title and in Scotland there were big wins for Celtic, Hearts and Aberdeen ahead of Monday's last-eight draw.
Hearts -2AH and over 2.5 goals at Aberdeen were on my treble and Juventus won to give me a 12-5 success and a couple of points profit on the day.
Greg called the Scottish Cup game spot on for three winners out of three and it was a pretty good day all round. He has posted tips on Monday's reserve games. HullShaker also had a winner and has non-league goals tips today.
Big game on Monday is Wolves v Newcastle and while the home men will be well backed they have struggled against teams who sit in while picking up points against better opposition. Rafa Benitez's men suffered a last-gasp 2-1 defeat at St James's and will fight for every ball.
I can see Wolves edging it but for me they're too short at 4-6 and a draw wouldn't be a huge surprise. Newcastle will allow them possession and put men behind the ball so on a treble I'm taking under 3.5 match goals.
In the Scottish Cup there's a Highland derby between Championship rivals Ross County and Inverness and it will be tight. The sides have met three times this season with two draws and a 2-1 win for County. Best bet here could be both to score with 11 of the last 14 meetings going that way and that's part two of the treble.
Complete the treble with Bundesliga 2 leaders Hamburg at home to Dynamo Dresden. When Hamburg were relegated for the first time last season they were expected to bounce back at the first attempt and are on course to do so. Six wins out of seven have edged them ahead of Cologne and they will expect to beat a Dresden side whose priority is safety.
Happy to risk 1.5pts on a treble but if your funds are limited HullShaker's double could be the safer option.
