This week we bring back European Fixtures to the world of football. Having just experienced an action packed weekend of Sport, with such events as the Grand National, the Masters, Davis Cup, Formula 1, UFC, Boxing and a load of football, it just keeps getting better.
We kick off on Tuesday at 19.45 with Borussia Dortmund vs Monaco
Both Teams do not have perfect records going into this match with Monaco having recently lost to giants PSG in Coupe de la Ligue Final 4-1. At the weekend, Dortmund lost to the same margin in der Klassiker. Take to this what you will but we could see a very even match up with both teams boasting in form goalscorers.
Dortmund have now scored in their last 9 games in all competitions. Monaco can show off an even more impressive with their streak reaching 26 straight games in all competitions. Not forgetting Monaco’s impressive feat in the last 16 against Manchester City, it is fair to say we are likely to see goals. On Tuesday night I’ll be looking at BTTS at 1/2.
The other match taking place on Tuesday is Juventus vs Barcelona
With many punters experiencing a disheartening blow to their accumulators at the weekend as they saw Barcelona lose 2-0 to mid-table Malaga, this match has since become very interesting, not to mention a repeat of the Final two years ago. It could be said, that Juventus have recently experienced a similar defeat, however their second leg defeat to Napoli saw them head to the final of them Coppa Italia on aggregate.
In form Striker, Gonzalo Higuaín, bagged a brace at the weekend in Juventus’ 2-0 win over Cheivo. Having said that, the Argentinian is know for not turning up to the big games. On top of this, the Odds for one of ‘MSN’ to score anytime are also not worth the risk due to having to pick and choose who it will be.
With two big teams going head to head, and picking a winner being fairly hard, looking at Juventus’ home defensive record could get a few people excited. Personally if your looking towards a safer bet, Under 3.5 Goals at 3/10 could be your punt and for those who think they have Mrs Lady Luck on their side post Grand National take a look at Under 2.5 Goals at 4/5.
