Andymac1980 said it best in the comments section; “Death, taxes and Sergio Ramos being booked”

The returning Madrid skipper didn't disappoint us punters when he picked up a first-half booking in Real's defeat at Stamford that set up an ‘all-English' Champions League final between Chelsea and Man City on May 29th.

It could be all-English affair in the Europa League final too. Man Utd look like they have more than a foot in the final following their 6-2 trouncing of Roma last week.

It's a pity Jose Mourinho won't be taking over the Italians until the end of season as it would've been in teresting to see if he could've got an immediate reaction out of his side against his former club. Instead it'll be lame duck manager Paulo Fonseca in the dugout and it's hard to see him getting a tune out of his when they already know he's offski.

SlipsTips is in the hotseat for us and he reckons it could be set up for an entertaining affair in his match preview, siding with a goalscorer for one of his main tips.

Things are less clear cut in the other tie where it's delicately poised after a 2-1 win for Villarreal over Arsenal last week. As well as the silverware at stake winning the trophy would almost certainly see the Gunners play in the Champions League next season so there's plenty at stake at the Emirates on Thursday.

The sub-plot of course is that the man in the oppoisiton dugour, Unai Emery, was the last manager to lead Arsenal to a European final. Depsite stating otherwise; “Arsenal started as favourites and they are still favourites at this stage,” The bookies make his Villarreal side favourites to qualify at 7/10, while Arsenal are 21/20 (Bet365).

SlipsTips goes for a cards angle for one of his bets in his match preview after a fiery first leg that yielded three yellow cards and two red cards.

In case you missed it on Wednesday we're delighted to announce that former Scottish football David Weatherston has joined our team to cover the Norwegian leagues here at MFT. He's made his debut with a season preview of the Eliteserien which kicks-off on Sunday and is well worth a read.

    Delighted to see Sporting run out comfortable 0-2 winners to bring up my main selection. That now means Lisbon extend their run of seeing all 24 of their league wins this season go under 4.5 goals. Nothing from me today but may have something for Fridays game. Well done all of yesterday’s winners and good luck to everyone for today 👍🏼

    Nothing in the way of a NAP or NB for me today, just going with some lower stakes bets in oz and the europa league. Good luck with whatever your on.

    Villarreal goal before 65:00
    5/6 bet 365

    The Spaniards have netted in every away EL game this season, while arsenal have 1 home clean sheet- against the might of Dundalk. For me they will score it’s just wether they beat the time.

    Melbourne victory v macarthur
    Both teams 4+ corners and 10+Bp
    6/5 skybet

    Macarthur still on their season long run of 4+ corners each game, while victory have improved of late and look to corners as their main way of getting the ball into the box for gestede

    Arsenal v Villarreal
    Roma v Man U
    Melbourne victory v MacArthur
    Btts treble
    3/1 hills

    Chucking a free bet and some loose change slots winnings at this one, reckon it won’t be far away

      Jablonec vs Teplice
      First League 🇨🇿
      Friday 7th May, 17:00 ⏰

      2nd place Jablonec are the form team in Czech Republic. They’re unbeaten in their last 10 games winning 8 of those. They are particularly strong at home winning 12 of their 15 league games including their last 5. Teplice are winless in their last 8 and have only won once in their last 16. They also struggle on the road losing 9 of their 15. Jablonec won away to their opponents 0-5 in the season and whilst I’m not saying it’ll be the same score line, they should comfortably beat a side who’ve already lost 5-1, 7-0 and 7-2 to both Prague sides and Viktoria Plzen.

      Hannover vs Darmstadt
      Bundesliga 2 🇩🇪
      Friday 7th May, 17:30 ⏰

      Two mid table sides meet here in what could be an entertaining match. Both sides have scored in all 9 of Hannover’s recent matches including their last 5 at home with 21 goals scored in those games. Both sides have also scored in Darmstadt’s last 8 games and their last 6 away. Darmstadt have only failed to score twice on the road this season but have kept only one clean sheet. Both sides have scored in their last 6 meetings, let’s hope it’s 7.

      Sochi vs Rotor Volgograd
      Premier League 🇷🇺
      Friday 7th May, 18:00 ⏰

      4th placed Sochi host 2nd from bottom Volgograd where they are rightfully favourites. Champions Zenit are the only visiting side to come away with 3 points in Sochi’s 14 home games. They’ve won 9 of them including 6 of their 7 where they’ve conceded only 3 goals (2 to Zenit & one to CSKA). Volgograd on the other hand have lost 6 of their last 7. They’ve lost 7 of their 13 away games including 5 of their last 6 with an aggregate score of 17-3. Sochi won the earlier meeting 1-2 and I’m expecting them to win again here, perhaps a little more comfortably.
