On La Galaxy 0 v DC in 10 minutes at 1.8. No acosta or Rooney starting for them. They’re very poor defensively and lack any form of attacking threat without those two. Ibra should cause big issues. Can’t see DC winning without those 2.
Been by far the better team, but 1-0 down after half an hour. Zlatan is going to score though, Pavon looking dangerous and there's a goal or two in this for Zlatan.

Yup, so undeserved to be losing. Be really surprised if they lose. Pavon is too good for this league.

Terrible loss. Dc scored both their chances all game and LA missed big chances. Ibra had his worst ever game also, should have scored 3 easily.

Karlovic - Struff, Tie Break in first set @2,01 - Don't see serve broken in this one.
Hapoel Beer Sheva v Norrkøping - Most goals in 2nd half @2,18 - Should be tight and forced to open up...

Edit; FML, Karlo - Struff went like clockwork, not a single break point played and Karlo, one of the top 3-4 servers in the world serving at 5-6. Life was not only a joy, but also a dance on roses! He then proceeds to not get a single point on his own serve and 5-7. Hope his milk turns sour and his broadband connection is unstable for at least a month, the b@stard!:mad:

Hapoel Beer Sheva v Norrkøping 0-0 / 3-1 easy win.

Fancy my second team Göteborg on a -1 AH tonight against Falkenbergs. Price is currently @ 2.20 which is decent value. Can’t see them losing to Falkenbergs who have been pretty poor defensively.

Like those picks myself, pretty certain Leeds will win too, think they have too much class for Salford, and used up their share of bad luck vs Forrest?

Ferencvarosi v Dinamo BTTS @ 1.87

Copenhagen @ 2.00

Edit: Was on Jiangsu -1.5 @ 2.20. Was a stonking bet. Just got back from work so couldn't post! Currently 3-0

Was actually a great bet 2nd half. Played their worst 45 mins of the season first half. They're a counter attacking side as well so once they take the lead then it's a lot easier for them. Could have scored more than 3 in the end!


Would be reluctant to bet anything in Carabao without team news. A few teams will bin the comp off and play kids.


Really tempted by Vlaz Women +1 in Womens CL. Think they can win but I missed group games as been in Croatia the last week. Danger of them fixing as well but they need to avoid defeat to go through, would be very odd to throw but you never know with Albanian sides. Think it'll be a pretty even game in terms of chances, worth monitoring the game anyway.

Yeah they were awful in the first half, was confident once they'd taken the lead.

I'd largely steer clear of Carabao myself but as a Bristol Rovers fan I can assure you that Cheltenham Town @ 4.00 is great value. We are crap.

Ajax -1.5 and Celtic to win tonight - the away sides can't really sit back to defend (unless they get that vital 1st goal) so I reckon both will be open games

On Al Sadd Draw no bet in play 1.8

Benatia a huge miss for Duhail, missing best attacker also. Few good players left since last season, one went to Sadd. There's almost no home bias in Qatar annoyingly but don't see them losing this unless it goes 2-2 and they concede late chasing a goal to go through.

Dropped the Carabeo after seeing lineups, was looking at Leeds -2.5 and WBA.

Jabeur in play Vs Brady @10/1. Lost 1st set but normally a slow starter, looking better now.
Edit; Lost, such a talented fatlete, would have loved to see how far she could go with a stone less(Leeds 3-0 at over 5/1, doooh!)

Easy enough in the end.
Think they're going to win the comp but really need them not to. Had a few hundred on them to win at 40/1 and 35/1 pre season with 188 and all bets got voided by then when they stopped accepting UK customers.

Copenhagen really should have won this in 90 mins, just not good enough TBF. Ferencvarosi just got hammered but missed a few good chances. Just not my night!

Not even surprised by Porto, watched them on Saturday and they were awful against Gil Vicente. Left them well alone!
Porto is in a meltdown. The discussions are so bad that players and manager even discussed a lot during pre-season games!

Not bad for a betting season start (was being too lazy to start again), getting a clean 53€ profit. But, off course, this is just accumulating money for future bankruptcy.

East Belfast women playing tonight, got them last week at 25/1 to win and tonight they are at 11/2. Bet365 doing the game.

Super Cup could be interesting tonight but will wait for team news I think.
Gone with BTTS & o2.5/3.5 @ 2.10/3.05(Betsafe) - can't see either team not scoring, reckon 2-1/3-1 LFC, pretty confident of standard line-up from Klopp.

I have quite a few bets on today. Mainly in the tennis.
De Minaur to beat Opelka @1.73
Brady to beat Hsieh@1.7
Zheng +3.5 vs Sabalenka @1.95
Alexandrova +4.5 @1.95
and I bet Liverpool to beat Chelsea @1.65

Hopefully I will end the day in profit!

Will be on Liverpool -0.75 if their team is strong. Game will play out similar to United Chelsea. Chelsea will give up possession in their own half with pressing/errors and Pool will use fast turnovers and kill us. Lampard too naive from what I've seen of him at Derby to set up defensively.

On Guimares -2 asian in play from 0-0. Ventspils massively out their depth here. Gzira dominated them for a lot of their tie and it's a completely different level to Guimares. Same side as first leg for Guim, barring early sub. Good chance Ventspils fix to concede a late goal again as well. Be surprised if they don't win by 2 at least, thought 3/4-0 pre game.

Them already being 3-0 up from the first leg doesn't concern you?

Having a little bet on Lions Gibraltar @ 2.00

Playing Europa Point at home later. First game of the season and have a chance to put some much needed points on the board against a newly promoted side.

No, usually I’d be put off but it’s a massive gulf and a low line. They’d be -4 if it was first leg probably so the line already factored it in a bit. They’ve defended more lax than normal though, bit of a worry.

6-0. Vent so generous and fixed 3 late goals, great guys. Keeper error for the 4th goal and the lack of defending for the 6th despite Guimares walking were my two favourites.
