I CAN'T really get my head around Friday night betting – and wish the internationals would return to their Saturday slot.

It means I'll be on a plane heading halfway round the world when Scotland kick off in Wales – so hopefully I'll be able to get some info on the big games.

The Cardiff clash will be hard-fought and best bet would be both teams to be booked but I reckon both teams will score because a victory is essential for either club – a draw being use to anyone.

Scotland's chances of netting are boosted by the return of Steven Fletcher who is living up to his £14million price tag at Sunderland and he is a certain starter.

Wales have lost Craig Bellamy but Gareth Bale always threatens a goal and they have quality from all areas of the pitch except maybe at the back where they have a few injury concerns.

Serbia stunned Wales 6-1 last time out but were handed a few goals by their opponents. A 0-0 draw with Scotland is a better indication of their threat but they'll need to push for the points in tough section so will be confident of hitting the target.

I'm staying in Group A for Macedonia v Croatia. Macedonia went one better than Serbia by scoring at Hampden and that was mainly down to the brilliance of Goran Pandev.

I can see him helping his side hit the target here but Croatia can outscore them with brilliant duo Nikica Jelavic and Mario Mandzukic in their ranks.

Next look at possibly the biggest game of the night, Russia v Portugal. When Cristiano Ronaldo's on the pitch anything can happen and he's been in sparkling form with eight goals in three games for Real Madrid.

The Portuguese aren't always good travellers and I'm sue they'd take a draw right now. However, it's likely to be a scoring one with the Russians so attack-minded and providing a goal threat from the likes of Alan Dzagoev and Aleksandr Kerzahkov.

My third choice is Serbia v Belgium, despite the fact the visitors have lost Merouane Fellaini. Belgium still have plenty of quality provided by the likes of Eden Hazard and sshshshs and should be looking to at least score and possibly claim a draw.

Finally, some may be surprised by this selection as it's Luxembourg v Israel. Luxembourg are improving and don't just defend these days.

They have netted in four of their last five games, including a 1-1 draw in Belfast and 2-1 defeat at home to Portugal. So they can certainly grab one against Israel at home but they have no idea about keeping clean sheets. They're reserved for the prinicpality's nice hotel rooms.

Both teams to score

Wales v Scotland

Macedonia v Croatia

Russia v Portugal

Serbia v Belgium

Luxembourg v Israel

      Danny, going with Emirates to KL tonight so will be the middle of tomorrow night for us when Scotland game kicks off.

  2. Danny 6 years ago

    good stuff kl supposed to be dinomite cheap as dirt you shall suffer many hangovers

    few tips of a different kind if youve never been with emirates before

    reserve 2 seats on 2 rows on the aisle that way your family will get 2 rows to yourselfs unless the planes packed dont take the rows with 2 seats as they are constantly bumped with trolleys and bad leg room plus you get half a window so no were to lay your head

    about every hour they will come round with the free swally if you dont ask for the good stuff you dont get it exmaple absolte voddy jameson budweiser henieken at any given time during the flight you can walk to the back of the plane and get as much free swally as you can handle

    i assume you will stop in dubai for 2 in a half hours
    DO NOT GIVE YOUR KIDS THE BURGER KING OR MCCDONALDS head to the hub gate 229 i think it is very peacful for a bite to eat and a pint costs around 42 dirhams 7.50 well worth it believe me duty free is very cheap for booze and fags if you smoke be sure to take english notes as scottish not always accepted or if you can pay in dirhams that way you wont be ripped of and left with change in there money thats useless

    watch the pissers some of them only have sparays to clean yourself and not toilet roll

  3. Danny 6 years ago

      This site is called Mr Fixit’s Tips not Mr Fixit’s Predictions, he gives his opinion on why he chooses certain matches, if we agree we choose it, if we don’t then we pick another match, every match has a chance until the final whistle goes, i’ll probably choose a few conference games myself :-)

  11. Ally 6 years ago

    Yeah John, I agree it is tips, not predictions, but 2 outta 5 correct for a guy that claims to know what he is on about?


    I’ve done an experiment for a month, and followed all the tips offered, and won the grand sum of nowt.

    Addictive reading though, lol.


  12. John 6 years ago

    If you go on any website they do the same thing, give their opinion on why they choose the games they do, it doesn’t mean it’s going to happen it’s all about luck….roll on next weekend so we can get back to normal :-)
