Tottenham And United Have Different Challenges
Tottenham and Manchester United have away legs in the last 16 of the Champions League with contrasting chances of progressing. Tottenham take a 3-0 lead to Borussia Dortmund while United are looking to overturn a home 2-0 first leg defeat to PSG in France. Current form suggests Tottenham could lose out while United can get through to the quarter finals. It would take two huge turnarounds for that outcome but momentum and confidence are huge in sport. The DOUBLE on Dortmund and United to qualify for the next round pays 208/1 with bet365.
Manchester City and Liverpool have home matches in the Premier League which could continue the momentum shift to City. They are scrambling 1-0 wins while Liverpool have lost their way in front of goal. That will be of no concern to football fans in Sheffield because Wednesday and United meet in that city’s derby at Hillsborough tonight. The home team have had one defeat in 11 league matches and could handle their opponent’s high temp game. WEDNESDAY look a big price to win this fixture at 13/5 with Coral.
Its match day four of the Six Nations and in this case the tide could turn in favour of England. They lost the crunch match against Wales in Cardiff but are just two points adrift of the leaders. Wales are 3 points favourites to win in Scotland while the line for England for the meeting at Twickenham with Italy is 35 points. Wales look vulnerable on the road but ENGLAND will beat Italy and can be backed at 8/13 with bet365 to win the title before those matches.
West Windies won the Test series 3-1 and the ODI matches was tied 2-2 because there was one no result due to rain. The sides now play in a three fixture Twenty20 series with meetings this Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday. West Indies won the last ODI match by seven wickets which featured a score of 77 in 27 balls by Chris Gayle. His confidence and the home team’s momentum make WEST INDIES the team to back to win the series at 8/13 with bet365.
The Imperial Cup at Sandown on Saturday is the highlight of the racing week but that’s just the oeur d’ouevre before the main course that is the Cheltenham Festival which begins a week tomorrow. There is a decent novice hurdle over two miles at Leopardstown today (2.00) in which Zero Ten is the top-rated runner. However, THE ECHO BOY has the form to win this race at 9/2 with Coral.
