Happy Days For Liverpool And Aston Villa
There are two massive football matches today, one with a huge amount of money at stake and the other that is all about the glory. After last Saturday’s turgid FA Cup final we are expecting much more when Aston Villa and Fulham meet in the Championship playoff and Real Madrid play Liverpool in the final of the Champions League.
One common link is John Terry because he is at the heart of the Villa defence and missed a penalty for Chelsea that could have won his team the Champions League final against Manchester United in 2008. Terry could get redemption today because Villa can win promotion to the Premiere League. Much to the annoyance of United fans Liverpool seem destined to beat Madrid and become the champions of Europe for the sixth time.
The Championship playoff final is described as the most lucrative fixture in football. The winners reach the Promised Land of the Premier League while the losers stay in the second tier. Villa are managed by Steve Bruce who has taken two teams into the Premier League. The ability of Jack Grealish and Terry’s knowhow at the back can be crucial so ASTON VILLA are the team to back to win the playoff at with 6/5 with bet365.
There has been a feeling for some time that Liverpool will win the Champions League this season. They are not punching above their weight because the high risk football has been too much for their opponents including Manchester City in the last eight. It could become a shootout between Cristiano Ronaldo and Mo Salah and the later can help LIVERPOOL lift the trophy at 13/10 with William Hill.
The main race of the day is the Irish 2,000 Guineas at the Curragh. When it comes to the races that matter most Aidan O’Brien is the trainer to follow. He broke the world record for Grade 1 and Group 1 races last season and can add to his tally today because US NAVY FLAG is the nap at 5/2 with Ladbrokes.
