IT'S Cup semi-final weekend on both sides of the border and it will be interesting to see how Manchester City respond to their Champions League heartache today.

Pep Guardiola's men played a gruelling 120 minutes on Wednesday night before the suffering the heartache of crashing out on penalties to Real Madrid.

That ended hopes of another Treble and they now have to lift themselves to avoid dreams of a Double dying at Wembley. Chelsea are dangerous opponents given they've drawn twice with the champions this season and head into the semi-final on a high after battering Everton 6-0.

Chelsea v Manchester City: Top Betting Tips

The Blues have only lost once in 12 games and that was on their last visit to Wembley when a last-gasp goal in extra time won the League Cup Final for Liverpool. So they look decent value in the double chance at 27/20 with BetUK.

We should see goals at both ends and combining BTTS with over 2.5 strikes pays 10/11 at Bet365. There's better value in some stats bets, with improving Mykhaylo Mudryk 7/5 at Paddy Power for a shot on target and Blues right-back Malo Gusto 13/8 with the same firm to commit over 1.5 fouls.

Aberdeen v Celtic: Top Betting Tips

The first Scottish Cup semi-final sees Celtic take on Aberdeen at Hampden and the in-form Hoops are 1/6 hot favourites to reach the showpiece.

The Dons have flopped in the Premiership this term and sit in the bottom half but remain a good cup team after reaching the League Cup Final.

They also drew 1-1 with Celtic at Pittodrie earlier this season and have tightened up of late under caretaker boss Peter Leven. Four of their last five games have seen under 1.5 goals so combining a Hoops win with under 3.5 goals looks good at 23/20 with BetVictor.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Arsenal: Top Betting Tips

There some Premier League action today as well and Arsenal will also be trying to get back off the canvas after a midweek Champions League exit to Bayern Munich.

That 1-0 loss in Germany came off the back of a domestic defeat to Aston Villa and the Gunners can't afford another slip in the title race as they head to Molineux to face Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Gary O'Neil's men have gone five games without a win and injuries have played a big part in that. They are down to the bare bones again so it would be a surprise if Arsenal slipped up and backing Mikel Arteta's men to be winning at half-time and full-time pays evens at Coral.

Premier League Survival Fight: Top Betting Tips

There's two huge games at the bottom of the table as Luton Town host Brentford and Burnley head to Sheffield United. Only wins will do for the teams in the bottom three so I fancy an over 2.5 goals double at 161/100 with Bet365.

EFL Championship Promotion Race: Top Betting Tips

The title race in the Championship is even more thrilling than the one in the Premier League with four teams now going for glory after Southampton's resurgence.

Saints head to Cardiff City today off the back of three successive wins and are just 4/9 at Bet365 to keep their run going. The scorer markets offer better value and Che Adams is 5/4 at William Hill for a goal after his midweek double.

Leicester City sit second behind Ipswich Town and have a tricky game at home to fifth-placed West Bromwich Albion. The Foxes have been good value for corners of late and backing them at -2 in that handicap pays 21/20 with BoyleSports today.

SPFL Lower Leagues: Top Betting Tips

Top plays bottom in SPFL League Two as Stenhousemuir head to Clyde but the bookies make Ian McCall's strugglers the 6/4 favourites with Stenny having nothing to play for after clinching the title. The champions are still a better team though so the 15/8 on offer at Bet365 looks worth a punt.

Saturday's Football Tips: Super Singles

  • Malo Gusto over 1.5 fouls 13/8 BetUK
  • Celtic win and under 3.5 goals 23/20 BetVictor
  • Stenhousemuir to win 15/8 Bet365

Goals galore

  • Over 2.5 goals at Luton and Sheffield United 161/100 Bet365

    After spending a large amount of time scouring Europe I’ve opted for a game in league one where Edinburgh host Annan. While neither team has set the world alight with their form I’m expecting goals and both to contribute.
    H2hs have seen o2.5 in the last 4 with 3 of them seeing btts.
    Looking at form isn’t pretty for either side but Edinburgh at home have only failed to score 4 times this season. Unfortunately they’ve only kept 2 clean sheets.
    Annan have only failed to score once in 15 away games.
    Btts+o2.5mgls@8/11 is my single

    Treble for me today, backed them all when the prices came out and all have been smashed up, hopefully a good sign. Blackpool, Lincoln and Donny. Treble still pays about 9/1

    City basically lost at home their Champions League title – that’s the truth
