VFB Stuttgart over Rangers 6/5 - The german champions have been awful in the group stages this year but have recently shown some excellent form in the german league winning 5 games on the bounce including a 3-1 demolition of the mighty bayern Munich. I remember Hamburg last year in the group stages, they didnt have to win in terms of qaulification but wanted to boost moral, they beat CSKA 3-2, i think something similar will happen today. Rangers are a typical scottish team, all heart and passion but very little skill, i reckon stuggart will edge this.
Barcelona over Lyon 13/8- I still believe that Lyon are not the same team of a few years ago, i reckon barca can win this easily.
Sevilla vs Arsenal - Over 2 goals 10/11- Two very attacking teams go head to head, i reckon we could see a high scoring draw.
Roma over Kiev 5/6- Roma look to seal qaulification in russia with a win, Kiev have been their usual dissapointing selves and roma have been pretty handy away from home both in the league and europe.
Liverpool over Porto 1/2- Liverpool must win this game to have any chance of qaulifying, who would back against them? Comming into brilliant form, breathtaking performance away to newcastle on saturday, i think rafa has found the formula.
Lazio over Olympicos 5/6- Lazio have qauietly gone about their business in the group stages and will take controll of qaulification with a home win tommorow, olympicos are noting special and have a very suspect goalkeeper, Lazio always strong at home as real madrid found out and i reckon they will edge this 1-0 or 2-1.
English Championship (Division 1)
Crystal Palace over Preston 19/20- Preston were absoloutely awful in their last game against charlton, Palace are starting to find form with an excellent away win last week, i reckon they can build on that with a nice home win today.
Lanus over Gimnasia La Plata 1/2- Lanus will look to gain 3 points here after dissapointing home draw to the juniors last week, lets get one thing straight here, lanus have been a very good team all season and the odds are too good to miss.
Bolton over Aris 8/13- Bolton comming off a 2-2 away draw to bayern and beating the mighty man u on sat will look to get back on track in europe in a must win game, dont normally like to bet on a team with a crap manager but i think he might be starting to win me over, good odds considering boltons form of late.
Valencia over Schalke 4/6 - Must win game for Ronald Koeman's side, Koeman did well with benfica at this level i reckon he has the tactics and players to edge out the germans here.
Blackburn over A.Villa 23/20- Time for Martin O Neil's away run to come to an end, Do not be decieved by villas away form, they have played some muppet teams in boro and birmingham. Going to blackburn and getting a result is a difficult for even the top 4 so i reckon blackburn represent excellent value.
Lens over Caen 10/11- Looking at lens they have been awful all season but i reckon they can eak out a home win here, basing this bet on the due a win factor rule, hope it works.
Valencia played 1 hour with 10 men...
Lens winning 1-0 (let in a goal in the 87th min)
Blackburn ( Villa too good)
If bolton win tonight i have made a good profit for the week.
