There's only handful of games left of the 2021-22 season but it won't be too long until football is back and with the World Cup taking place in November and December it means an early start for leagues across Europe this summer.

The Scottish League Cup is among the first to return, kicking off in just 48 days time. The week before that there's European qualifiers with the road to the Champions League and Europa Conference League starting in earnest.

The key date on the Scottish domestic scene is July 30th when all four SPFL leagues begin, as does the English Football League. A week later the Premier League swings in to action, joined by Ligue 1 and the German Bundesliga the same weekend.

But before all that there's a whole host of UEFA Nations League matches at the beginning of June, almost two week's worth in fact so that should keep us busy for a couple of weeks. And who could forget the crucial World Cup play-offs that still need to be settled? Scotland are due to play Ukraine on June 1st with the winner traveling to Wales for the play-off final on June 5th.

Here are some of the key dates for the months ahead;

  • Jun 1: 🌎 World Cup Play-Off (Scotland v Ukraine)
  • Jun 1 – Jun 12: 🇪🇺 UEFA Nations League Group Stages
  • Jun 5: 🌎 World Cup Play-Off (Wales v Scotland / Ukraine)
  • Jul 5/6 & Jul 2/13: 🇪🇺 Champions League 1st Qual Round
  • Jul 7 & Jul 14: 🇪🇺 Europa Conference 1st Qual Round
  • Jul 9: 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Scottish League Cup
  • Jul 19/20 & Jul 26/27: 🇪🇺 Champions League 2nd Qual Round
  • Jul 21 & Jul 28: 🇪🇺 Europa Conference 2nd Qual Round
  • Jul 30: 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Scottish Premiership, Championship, L1 & L2
  • Jul 30: 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 English Championship, L1 & L2
  • Aug 2/3 & Aug 9: 🇪🇺 Champions League 3rd Qual Round
  • Aug 4 & Aug 11: 🇪🇺 Europa League 3rd Qual Round
  • Aug 4 & Aug 11: 🇪🇺 Europa Conference 2nd Qual Round
  • Aug 5: 🇩🇪 Bundesliga
  • Aug 6: 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Premier League
  • Aug 6: 🇫🇷 Ligue 1
  • Aug 12: 🇪🇸 La Liga
  • Aug 16/17 & Aug 23/24: 🇪🇺 Champions League Play-Offs
  • Aug 18 & Aug 25: 🇪🇺 Europa League Play-Off Round
  • Aug 18 & Aug 25: 🇪🇺 Europa Conference Play-Off Round
  • Aug 21: 🇮🇹 Serie A

There's also plenty of action across the globe during the close season with the likes of Ireland, Norway and Sweden playing through the summer as well the MLS and A League in Australia.

As for today's action there's not much to get involved with unless you've a view on the National League play-offs where Halifax Town host Chesterfield, live on BT Sport or there's a Bundesliga II relegation play-off live on Sky Sports between Dynamo Dresden and Kaiserslautern.

We do have a good one to look forward to on Wednesday when Roma and Feyenoord compete for the inaugural Europe Conference League final in Tirana, Albania. Mark Walker has already posted his views on that one.

    Wasnt going to bother after a crap week and a dismal card this evening but this was 8-11 earlier and it’s drifted to 21-20 which isn’t promising but I think it’s a good price.

    Deportivo Recoleta v Club Deportivo San Luis
    Chilean Primera Division B

    BOTH teams to score 21-20 🇨🇱 NAP 🇨🇱 (HILLS).
    Side bets
    Over 2.5 match goals 11-8
    BTTS and over 2.5 goals 15-8
    Both SKYBET…….

    Recoleta BTTS in 13 of last 16 homes
    Recoleta scored in 19 of last 20 homes.
    San Luis BTTS in 11 of last 15 aways.

    One head to last year
    Recoleta 3 San Luis 1.
    Both have similar records this season.

    Prediction 1-1 will do, an extra goal either way all the better
    1-2 after 62 minutes
    A welcome full house 🏠

      Great tip elvis 😎

    • The Brain 1 month ago

      Elvis, what’s your thought on libertadores game later between Velez Sarsfield and Estudiantes. Ridiculous odds for the away side, or BTTS. Reverse was Estudiantes 4-1.

    • elvis parsley 1 month ago

      On the face of it looks huge.
      Estudiantes already through and I think Velez need to better bragantinos result against national Uruguay, a team that bragantino should beat but are away.

      Question to ask is would estudiantes rather see Velez, a team they have already beat 4-1 qualify or a potentially better bragantino side.
      Bookies seem to think estudiantes are going to chuck the game going off the odds.
      1-0 wouldn’t be the greatest surprise

      Too many imponderables for me here

    Hi guys,

    I’m posting tomorrows NAP early as I think bet365 have made an error with this price and it’ll not be around for long.

    Bodo are 20/21 on the 0.0 Asian corner handicap market at home to Stromgodset. I’ve no idea why as Bodo have won the corner count easily, as expected, in all 4 home games, whereas Godset have lost 3/4 corner counts in away games.

    Bodo have lost the corner count just at home just twice in the last 2 seasons. If anyone knows of any team news/Covid news etc let me know 👍🏻

    🔘Bet: Bodo 0.0 Asian handicap corners: 20/21 (bet365)
    💰NAP and NB combined ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    • Cleaves 1 month ago

      Looks like this price has gone already, now set at -3.

      You can get 4/6 for Bodo most corners or 11/10 for Bodo -1 corner on skybet still though. For anyone wanting it, or something close to Chris’s tip. I assume this will go soon also though…

    • elvis parsley 1 month ago

      Bodo are 1-3 to win the corner count at bet365.
      Must have been thousands backed on that market in the last 2 hours.

    • Cleaves 1 month ago

      Yep, sky prices have gone to 2/7 and corner handicap now -3 also

      Apologies Kris, I’ve realised I spelt your name wrong above

    • Kris Jones 1 month ago

      I’ve just had an email off bet365 informing me the odds of this bet were displayed incorrectly; they should have been 1/4 rather than 20/21 and my bet has been voided.

      Bet365 are getting really bad for customer service. This wasn’t displayed incorrectly, they just used their normal algorithm and panicked when eagle eyed punters noticed the chance to lump on the ever reliable Bodo.


      You can still get 10/11 with 888sport bet builder for Bodo most corners/stromgodset under 4.5 goals so I’ll
      Be on that instead.

      – Bodo most corners/Bodo DC is also 10/11.
      – Bodo most corners/Bodo over 4.5 corners is 17/20 so plenty of options. 👍🏻

    Colombian Corners were in short supply last night but managed to get a nice 24/5 turn onthe longshot courtesy of Icelandic goals.

    OVER 4.5 GOALS
    (1/1, bet365) NAP ⭐️⭐️⭐️

    OVER 5.5 GOALS
    (41/20 unibet) NB ⭐️⭐️

    Excelsior v Den Haag
    Dutch relegation play off 1st leg 19:00 ko
    Btts and over 2.5gls 5/6 NAP
    Btts score 1st half 5/2 NB

    History says there has been 30 fixtures between these two clubs and stats say the following
    27/30 seen btts out of the 3 that didn’t one was a friendly that’s an incredible 90% strike rate
    In fact 23/30 fixtures have seen the btts and overs land that’s a strike rate of 76%
    Given it’s a fight for survival I can see the trend continuing tonight
    It’s 4/7 for btts if anyones looking for summat to put in their Accas

  10. elvis parsley 1 month ago

    🇮🇸🇮🇸🇮🇸🇮🇸 ICELAND 🇮🇸🇮🇸🇮🇸🇮🇸
    Dalvík/Reynir v Thor Akureyri
    Icelandic Cup.

    Dalvik/reynir to score 4-5 * DOUBLE STAKE* 🇮🇸 NAP/NB 🇮🇸 BETFAIR SPORTSBOOK…..

    Btts EVENS at SKYBET
    Btts and over 2.5 HILLS
    Both look decent but put all my eggs in the one home goal basket today.

    Div 3 v div 1
    Should be an away win but dalvik in good scoring form in their league, won all 3 so far and 2 head to head in the cup 3 or 4 years ago seen goals at both ends.
    Prediction 1-2 or 1-3
    🇮🇸🇮🇸🇮🇸🇮🇸 ICELAND 🇮🇸🇮🇸🇮🇸🇮🇸

    In play
    Dynamo Dresden v Kaiserslautern 0-0 27 mins n
    Over 1.5 mgls evens
    2nd leg of the play off and all square. So for me only needs one goal and another willl naturally follow given what’s at stake
    Hopefully the first goal comes with plenty of minutes left on the clock

  13. HullShaker 1 month ago

    Disappointing 0-2 scoreline in Iceland 👎

    Welldone all winners!

  14. elvis parsley 1 month ago

    Heads up for the Velez v estudiantes game at 11-15.
    Estudiantes have changed the whole team and from what I see none of the players who started in the recent 1-0 at bragantino aren’t even on the bench !!!!!

    This explains the 4-11 price on Velez to win
