England Favourites To Be Champions League Winning Nation
The first knockout ties in the Champions League take place this week and two English clubs are involved in fixtures. The last 16 is spread over four match days and Liverpool and Manchester City play next week. Manchester United play PSG at home and Tottenham welcome Borussia Dortmund to Wembley this Tuesday and Wednesday and both teams will be hoping to establish a first leg lead. ENGLAND are 13/8 with Betfair and favourites to be the winning nationality.
Wolves are emerging as the best of the rest and can consolidate seventh place in the Premier League with a win over Newcastle at home tonight. The hosts are on a decent run and playing with confidence. A win would take them four points clear of Watford in eighth position and in good shape to qualify for the Europa League pending the outcome of other competitions. Even though Newcastle have not lost the previous four corresponding fixtures WOLVES are tipped to win this one at 7/10 with bet365.
The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) will make an announcement this evening about the resumption of racing. Four new cases of equine flu were identified last night but at one stable in Newmarket which could be isolated. Odds on the action resuming increased with the news and it’s now 10/11 with Paddy Power that racing will take place in the UK before this Saturday. The Grand National should not be under threat and last year’s winner TIGER ROLL is 25/1 with Betfair to win the race again.
England are trying to avoid a 3-0 drubbing in the Third Test against West Indies. They put together their first 100 partnership of the series in the first innings and now lead by 142 runs. However, England have managed batting collapses in the previous four matches and in a relatively low scoring game things could change. With the match well in advance after two days and the weather not an issue there should be a definite result. WEST INDIES are 14/1 with bet365 to win this match.
