Wins For The Manchester Clubs Tonight
I know from personal experience that Lyon are the only team to beat Manchester City this season. The Premier League leaders were the fifth team in a fivefold and the other four teams won. City were added to the bet at 1/5 to boost the profit by 20%. Lyon won the fixture at the Etihad on matchday 1 in the Champions League. It’s the reverse fixture in France tonight and City can come out on top. Since that acca buster City have won 12 of 13 fixtures and drew against Liverpool at Anfield after missing a late penalty. Lyon’s four matches in the Champions League this season have produced 17 goals and both teams have scored on each occasion. MANCHESTER CITY AND BTTS is the bet at 6/4.
I can also talk from experience when saying Manchester United were rubbish against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford last Saturday. A great day out in Manchester during which the highlight was a visit to a George Best tribute bar in the city centre was spoiled by the 90 minutes of football. The lack of passion on the pitch and in the stands was telling and the match had 0-0 written all over it from the start. Jose Mourinho’s next match in charge is basically a home knockout tie against Young Boys in the Champions League. Mourinho knows the league title is not a viable target so qualifying for the last 16 of the Champions League is a must. His team can do more than enough tonight and MANCHESTER UNITED -1 is 4/5 with Paddy Power.
If United get that result Valencia will have to beat Juventus in Italy to stay in the hunt for a top two finish with one match to go. That fixture is at home to the English club and maximum points are required tonight. Juventus beat Valencia 2-0 in Spain, have amassed the highest point’s total in Serie A history at this stage and are (virtually) unbeatable at home. JUVENTUS WIN TO NIL can be backed at 5/4.
Tuesdays are like Saturday in Sedgefield because it’s a regular race day at the town’s small racetrack. Granted there isn’t a massive influx of stag and hen parties but some horses visit from other parts of the world. Donald McCain the younger has brought some horses to race today and he could go back to Cheshire with a winner. The nap of the day at Sedgefield is McCain’s runner in the handicap hurdle at 12.50. PROMISE OF PEACE is the selection at 7/4 with William Hill.
