City Favourites For Champions League
The ultimate fly on the wall documentary is the story of Manchester City’s record breaking title winning season in 2017/18. City beat all before them in the Premier League but they will be known as flat track bullies until the Champions League is in the trophy cabinet. The huge investment in the club is paying dividends but the ultimate goal is to be champions of Europe. Winning the Premier League by 19 points is a fine achievement but the next step is being dominant on the continent. After a kind draw for the group stages MANCHESTER CITY are the favourites to win the Champions League at 5/1 with Ladbrokes.
There is a huge match in the Championship which brings together the top two teams in the table. Leeds are at home to Middlesbrough in a classic six-pointer. Both clubs have won 13 points but Leeds have the better goal difference so occupy first place. Middlesbrough would overhaul them with a win but any other outcome means the positions remain unchanged. Leeds have beaten Boro at home in all but one of the last five meetings and have looked impressive this season to date. However, the visitors can avoid defeat so the best bet is the DRAW at 5/2 with William Hill.
One of the biggest fixtures in rugby league is a meeting between St Helens and Wigan. The two sides are first and second favourites to win the Grand Final respectively so tonight’s match could be a prelude to trying to be top dogs at Old Trafford. Home advantage should help Saints record a narrow win but WIGAN can win the handicap market with a start of 6 points at 10/11 with Coral.
There are six Flat meetings and two jumps fixture in Britain and Ireland today and this evening and the racing is about quantity over quality. The Curragh stages a decent handicap for horses aged two (a nursery) at 5.20. Cardini often finds a way of not winning a race and ROYAL CANFORD can exploit favourable weight conditions and the horse should be backed each way at 12/1 with bet365.
