Friday, Monaco, 7.45pm, live on Sky Sports 2

I DON'T know what to make of the Super Cup clash between Chelsea and Atletico Madrid, a game that will be played much like a friendly even though there is a trophy at stake.

In truth it's a game neither side wants but there is some prestige attached to the clash between the European champions and Europa League winners.

Champions League holders Chelsea are 13-10 favourites at BetVictor but there isn't much in it. Atletico, 12-5 with Stan James, look overpriced on neutral ground and are capable of picking up a draw or win at 3-5 (boylesports).

I tipped Brazilian star Falcao to score first against Athletic Bilbao on Monday and he did so on his way to a hat-trick in a 4-0 win.

He will be a real handful for a Blues defence missing the influence of John Terry and is 13-2 at Coral to score first and 19-10 with sportingbet to net at any time.

Fernando Torres has also started well and is 11-2 at Paddy Power to hit the target against one of his former teams. The Irish firm make him 13-8 to score but I'd prefer to take Falcao.

It really could go either way but both sides score goals so best bet could be over 2.75 at 6-5 with bet365 and I also like both teams to score at 8-11 with bet365 and Betfred.


Falcao to score
(19-10, sportingbet)

Over 2.75 goals
(6-5, bet365)

    Falcao to score first for atletico Madrid 10/3 bluesq is a good bet

    Well done with Falcao Paul. I’m thinking about doing a double on real Madrid and rangers who are both playing at home. With Real Madrid losing last week they will be going out to prove a point against Granada. Real Madrid are available at a best price of 1/9 with Granada at 28/1 but how about Real Madrid to be winning after 30 mins at 5/6?

    Also Rangers at home to Elgin. Rangers are available at a best price of 1/7 with Elgin at 20/1. Again Rangers to be winning after 30 mins is available at 5/6 also. I think McCoist would have really got stuck into them after last weeks performance and the team will prob be fired up especially with all the fans as they are playing at home. Home advantage should ensure rangers get an early goal.

    A £60 stake on the double returns just over £200. Maybe an easy £140 profit. What you think?

      Chris, it sounds very easy to be honest and it should be. But remember Rangers v East Stirling, I’m staying away from that one to be honest until they settle down a bit better. At home they’ve been pretty decent though and the -1 or -2 bets are probably safer. Was out watching the game and really enjoyed. Falcao is unbelievable at the moment and can’t wait for Atletico’s next game.

    Think i might have a piece of that double.

  4. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    H only worry is Rangers but surely they must score early

  5. Kyle 12 years ago

    I agree. Where about u getting tht Chris? I bet with Hill’s online but can’t find it… cheers

  6. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Ladbrokes Kyle. Price is online but you can write it on a betting slip and you get the same price. I did it last week.

  7. Kyle 12 years ago

    Cheers Chris. Found price for Real online with Hill’s and it’s only 4/6

  8. andy waite 12 years ago

    Had falcao £10 ew at 6-1, Then £10 on 2nd goal at 6-1, Then £10 on 3rd goal at 6-1 lol. £200 profit in 45 mins. Done the same on monday nite, the guy is the king.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Andy, that’s good going. I simply backed him to score, score first andf took the 4 goals or over so was a good night and a great game to watch.

    Can you do that bet in-store Chris yeah? Falcao was 60-1 for a hat-trick tonight! Nearly put £2 on it but diverted to ht/ft scenarios instead. Gobsmacked haha.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Badham, virtually all bets that are on line are available in shops but not always for the same price. Shops have only a limited amount thet can display in coupons and screens so if in doubt ask them to phone for a price if you would prefer to have one. If they don’t initial your price you might not get it.

  10. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Yes Badham. Don’t even ask at the counter cos it’s online just write it out and they will put it through manually
