AFTER a super Saturday I had a feeling Sunday was going to be tougher and so it proved.
I only put up two bets and both were losers. Bordeaux and Celtic beat the treble and Spurs' failure to score sank the both to score fourfold at the first hurdle.
Hours were spent sizing up a possible Super Single and I'm glad I resisted the opportunity as several of the sides I considered failed to win.
My best call was probably ruling out an Arsenal win at Leicester and the shocks continued throughout the day right up until Real Madrid throwing away a 2-0 lead to lose at Real Sociedad.
The one that got away was PSG who thumped St Etienne 5-0 – with comeback man Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring the first counter and going on to hit a hat-trick.
It's the start of a quiet week leading up to the Euro 2016 qualifiers and I've had look at many of the matches to come up with some tips.
I'm starting a Daily Double with Rio Ave at home to Boavista in the Portuguese top flight. Rio Ave have won their opening two games and reach the Europa League group stage and will go top of the table with a win here.
They've started the season well with 5-1 and 2-0 victories while Boavista are pointless but they started with tough matches against Braga and Benfica. Rio Ave should win this one and are a best 8-13 with Coral and McBookie.
Add Swedish second-tier side Sundsvall at home to Assyriska and I'm taking this on form because I don't know much about the sides. Sundsvall lie third in the table and are unbeaten in four while Assyriska are without a victory in seven.
Sundsvall are strong at home having won eight of their last 10 and are expected to win with Coral offering a best 8-15.
Other sides I considered were St Pat's at Shelbourne in the Irish Cup but I'm waiting for team news. Modena are also being tipped to beat Cittadella in Serie B at just under evens but again I know little about the teams although form does point to a home success.
Loads of people have mentioned the Greuther Furth-St Pauli Bundesliga 2 match and everything points to goals so let's put that up as an over 2.5 selection. Look at the stats – an average of exactly three goals a game in 21 meetings between the sides.
Both teams have scored in six of the last seven at Furth with 29 goals being netted in these clashes. Greuther have banged in at least two goals in seven of their last outings against St Pauli and their three league games have totalled 10 this season.
Over 2.5 goals pays a best 3-4 at boylesports and another possibility is Greuther to win and both teams to score at 5-2 with Skybet.
Double up with under 2.5 goals at Brest v Nancy in French Ligue 2. Brest haven't netted in three – two 0-0s draws and a 1-0 defeat – while Nancy are unbeaten this season but all four of their matches have been under 2.5 goals including one 0-0.
The matches between the pair last season finished 0-0 and 1-0 and while backing unders is always risky in case of an early goal everything points to that market here.
Rio Ave (8pm)

Greuther Furth over 2.5 goals (7.15pm)
Brest v Nancy under 2.5 goals (7.30pm)
