There's not a lot happening inthe world of football day but there are a couple of cup games across Europe.

In Spain they're at the semi-final stage of the Copa Del Rey where Athletic Bilbao hold a 1-0 first leg advantage over Atletico Madrid. Both are vying for a place in the final against Real Mallorca.

Atletico Madrid don't have a great record in the competition, winning it just ten times but Bilbao have a proud association with the trophy as 23-time winners, most recently in 2021. Home advantage and that one-goal lead means they're just 1/5 to get the job done tonight while Atleti are 10/3 to turn things around.

In the 90 minutes the bookies are leaning towards Athletic Bilbao who are 7/5 to win and given their love affair with the Copa Del Rey that might not be the worst bet on a quiet night.

In the Coupe de France fourth tier side Le Puy Foot 43 Auvergne host Ligue 1's Rennes who are in good form domestically where they're unbeaten in 11. A 3-2 win over AC Milan last week wasn't enough to keep their European adventure alive but they're well fancied at 2/11 to book a semi-final slot with their hosts at 12/1.

    Hi All, I placed a bet in France at half time Sunday when they had 1 player in the sin bin for a yellow card. At the start of the second half the yellow card was updated to a red. Should this bet be void ?

    Not much on today at all worth betting on.
    Am keeping an eye on the sporting-benfica match. Waiting for the btts o2.5 gls to show up but can’t find it anywhere at the minute. 6 out of the last 7 have seen this come in and have no reason to believe it will be any different tonight.
    Also thinking about small stakes on btts-no between athletico-Madrid. This has happened in their last 5 h2hs and think defence will be key in a close fought cup tie. Odds of 10/11 seems ok as a single

      Btts + o2.5 goals is evens at betway mate had a look me self👍

    Cards when Benfica visit Lisbon in the Cup looks the best option for the route to profit today. Perhaps the first time I’ve seen 3 players at odds on to be carded in the same game. 46 players listed on Hills for a card and the highest price is 9/2 😐😂

    3 games for me this weekend where goals should be in abundance.

    Luton Town v Aston Villa (SAT)
    Over 3.5 goals at 6/5 (NAP)
    Over 4.5 goals at 11/4
    Over 5.5 goals at 11/2

    Luton have no choice but to go for it and whilst you have to admire their braveness they just haven’t found the right balance between attack and defence. Luton were well beaten midweek by Man City in the F.A cup but they still gave it a go and scored a couple in a 2-6 defeat. Villa are no strangers to the odd goal or two either. I would be surprised if we don’t see 5 or 6 goals here as both teams look for the win.
    Prediction 2-4

    Manchester City v Manchester United (SUN)
    Over 3.5 goals at 1/1
    Over 4.5 gaols at 11/5
    Over 5.5 goals at 9/2

    This game is all about City really and how many they will win by. Pep started De Bruyne in the F.A cup midweek where he and Haaland destroyed Luton Town and there’s no doubting when these two play together City get the best out of Haaland as they play to his strengths. United looked flat against Forest midweek in the F.A cup and it’s hard to see them posing City any problems here. Arsenal have been scoring goals for fun in the race for the Premier League title and with Pep starting De Bruyne midweek which was a surprise it may be a reaction to the goals Arsenal are scoring all be it against teams you’d expect them to beat comfortably anyway. As I already stated it’s all down to City here and how many they want to win by..
    Prediction 5-0

    Sheffield United v Arsenal (MON)
    Over 3.5 goals at 1/1
    Over 4.5 goals at 12/5
    Over 5.5 goals at 5/1
    Best of luck

    Start u19 vs Viking u19

    Over 4.5mgs @ 6/4 (bet365)

    Small stake

    Bet builder @ 7/2 (bet365)
    Viking u19 double chance
    Over 4.5mgs

    Had written a write up of this and took the above bets at 7/4 and 11/2. In the time I done my write up the odds have dropped to the above, which I still think are decent and wouldn’t be surprised if they drop further before kick off. Essentially Start u19 are not as good as the odds were suggesting and I fancy a few goals 😅 Wouldn’t be surprised to see Viking win.

    Good luck 🤞

    • bigwigg 2 months ago

      Bet365 dropped the odds again and have now pulled the game. Whill have followed suit.
