Yesterday was very good – both tips landed, the NAP inside 65 minutes and the DNB tip was a 1-0 winner, with the opposition having plenty of chances to ruin it but took none. Anyway, here are my selections for today.
All games come in the Champions League qualifying round:
1. Viktoria Plzen-Maccabi Tel Aviv Over 2.5 Goals @ 21/20 (1830 KO – NAP)
Both of these sides can score plenty, but the issue is conceding. Tel Aviv won the first round match 6-3 in total, but conceded in both legs to Hibernians of Malta, who are Champions there but not a great side. Plzen on the other hand have conceded in each of their last 8 games, including both in the starting 2 matches of the Czech league, winning both 2-1.
2. Fenerbache-Shakhtar BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 13/10 (1900 KO)
Fenerbache have started to build a champion winning team. Robin Van Persie and Nani have joined from Man Utd, while stars such as Diego, Moussa Sow remain. Fernandao has joined after a successful loan spell with Bursaspor from Paranaense, where he scored 32 goals in 48 league games! They should score a plenty. Shakhtar have lost two of their main attacking threats in Douglas Costa and Luiz Adriano, but the Ukrainian side are a conveyor belt of talent, and where they left a space – someone else will fill it. It’s been a while since anyone challenged them in the league – Dynamo Kyiv took the title from them last season, so this is an unknown stage of qualifying. I fancy both to score, and one to score at least 2!
3. Milsami Win @ 13/10 vs Skenderbeu (1800 KO)
Moldova vs Albania – this should be a good clash. Home side Milsami put out last season’s surprise package Ludogorets, with 2-1 and 1-0 wins over the 2 legged tie. Skenderbeu had a tough game against Crusaders of Ireland, and conceded 3 away from home, going through 6-3 on aggregate. With a player banned, and defending issues – I think the stronger side in Milsami, who are amazing at home – will win the tie.
These are the only 3 games I fancy – picking another would be a risk that I’m not comfortable taking…
Here are my preferred selections from those:
1. NAP – 1 @ 21/20
2. Double – 2 + 3 @ 5/1
3. Treble – 1, 2 + 3 @ 10.5/1
Best of luck
