Poor day yesterday – both games lost, Arsenal winning 3-0 – and somehow Olmypiakos didn’t score, and given the stats it’s a tough one to swallow. Barca rested a lot of players and drew 1-1. Never seen them put a team out as weak as that in the Champions League – so live and learn!
I’ve been trying to get an acca up all week, but with little on it’s proven to be tricky. With 24 games today, I have managed to find four that I like for today:
Sporting Lisbon vs Besiktas: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 13/10 (2005 KO)
Lisbon are the high scorers in this group and also the high conceders! 11 scored, 10 against and 10 goals in 2 home games for the Portuguese giants.
Besiktas are a lot more conservative in their style in the EL, but given what is at stake they might come out of their shell. With Moscow playing Skenderbeu, this game decided the final spot in reality as Moscow should win easily. Lisbon at home – could be a cracker!
Sion vs Liverpool: Liverpool -1 Corner @ 11/8 (1800 KO – NAP)
Liverpool, regardless of team in this competition – seems to have battered most teams on corners. This game ended 8-1 in the 1st leg, while heavy wins over Kazan and one of Bordeaux give me hope. Klopp will want a reaction after the weekend, so expect a full strength squad with a few kids getting a chance too.
Ajax vs Molde: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 6/5 (1800 KO)
Molde have qualified, but with the season over this will be their last competitive game for a short while. Their away record has been amazing – with plenty of goals!
Ajax need a point or two to guarantee qualification, and with average defences on both sides and nothing to lose for Molde I think it will be an open game.
Tottenham vs Monaco: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 13/10 (2005 KO)
Tottenham are through – Monaco need a result. For this reason I see Spurs taking it a little easy, while Monaco will be fully going for it and have been scoring well away from home this season. With it being the final game there is a risk, but I think it’s worth taking on this game!.
This bet as an acca pays around 28/1 – I’m not one to advise stakes but keep it lowish – personally £10 would be my limit as there are too many variables that could affect this – such as lineups etc. My double is 1 + 2 @ 4.5/1.
Best of luck
