Well, once again the Capital One Cup did not let us down! Four Premier League teams went out to lower league sides – including Man Utd, Leicester, Burnley and West Ham – beaten by MK Dons, Shrewsbury, Sheff Weds and Sheff Utd. West Brom were taken to penalties by Oxford – another close game. Newcastle won 1-0 against Gillingham, and despite the close scoreline it was fairly comfortable. Southampton beat Millwall 2-0 – Graziano Pelle scored his first goal for the club. Palace won 3-0, Dwight Gayle scoring a first half hat-trick. Swansea won 1-0 vs Rotherham, again a close game.
Anyway, onto this evening. We have action in the Cup, Champions League qualifyers an also in Portugal. Here is our Treble for today:
- QPR vs Burton – the League 2 side often are very good in this competition, and are in good form. QPR have lost their opening two games and ‘Arry is under pressure. Will he rest key players? We like BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 13/10
- Salzburg vs Malmo – The Austrian giants are leading 2-1 from the first leg, and are usually full of goals. Malmo are another strong side, often dominating the Swedish top division. We fancy Salzburg + BTTS @ 15/8, or if you like a little less risk – Salzburg Win + Over 2.5 Goals @ 11/10
- Sporting Lisbon B vs Aves – this usually has goals in it, the last two games at the Lisbon stadium have ended 1-2 an 2-2. We like BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 9/5
This 3 fold pays 17/1!
Best of luck
