Brazil Are Playing In The UK Today
It’s not every day you get to see Brazil play football live but I’m going to Anfield later to watch Neymar (hopefully) and co play Croatia in an international friendly. Pele played at Goodison Park nearby during the 1966 World Cup so the city of Liverpool has a history of welcoming the best football nation in the world to their grounds. Brazil have won 27 of their last 29 friendly matches. They beat Croatia 3-1 in the first match of their World Cup in 2014 and that CORRECT SCORE is 12/1 with Ladbrokes at the home of the Champions League finalists.
The final of the Challenge Cup was always played on the Saturday after the FA Cup final when rugby league was a winter sport. Sky got involved and everything changed but not necessarily for the good of the sport. The version of VAR means just about every key decision “goes upstairs” and the band don’t get to play at Wembley on two successive Saturday’s in May. Hull FC have won the trophy in the last two seasons but have a tough assignment at St Helens in the last eight today. ST HELENS -16 is the bet at 10/11 with William Hill.
After Maser won the most famous Flat race in the world at 16/1 at Epsom yesterday we are back to bread and butter fare. Ryan Moore found himself in a hole on Saxon Warrior in the Derby but the horse wasn’t going well enough to get in front when he was in the clear. The handicap chase at Perth (4.10) couldn’t be more different to the race but if MARTILOO wins at 3/1 with Betfair the blow of backing Saxon Warrior in the Derby will be softened.
