Tottenham Can Take Care Of Business In Barcelona
Southport play Tranmere at home in a FA Cup second round replay next Monday and if they win the tie will welcome Tottenham to their small ground in the third round. The rules now state that FA Cup matches have to be played in line with the draw and as Southport came out of the hat first the fixture must be played at Haig Avenue. That means Tottenham could be visiting a stadium with a capacity of about 5,000 so tonight’s trip to the Nou Camp in the Champions League will be a good prep match.
Tottenham must match or better Inter Milan’s result at home to PSV at Barcelona to progress to the last 16. If they don’t rest Harry Kane and Deli Alli so they are ready for a potential trip to Southport and Barca, assured of top spot, do play the second string, TOTTENHAM should be backed at 29/10 with Betfair. Barcelona are odds-against to win a home match which suggests the bookmakers have got wind or heard rumours of team selection.
The objective for Liverpool is to beat Napoli in their crunch Champions League match at Anfield. A 1-0 win or win by two clear goals will be enough to get out of the group but if Liverpool win by one goal and Napoli score they are out. If PSG can’t beat Red Star in Belgrade any victory for Liverpool will suffice. However, they must take care of business assuming PSG win.
Napoli have not lost any of the five group matches they have played so far and are the highest scorers in Serie A, averaging more than two goals per match. There are a number of permutations that would suit either side but one event could keep the final outcome in the melting pot. You can back BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE at 4/7 with Ladbrokes.
One of the bets of the day is in a race that has attracted just three runners at Fontwell. The handicap chase over three miles and two furlongs (2.10) could see no horses finish and a void race if there are three mishaps because these days jockeys are not aloud to remount after falls or unseats. If the horse has a clear round SCOOP THE POT is the nap at 11/10 with Paddy Power.
