So bet 2 lost! Such a shame, as once again our two Scottish cup matches were laden with goals and we were only let down by our Champions League qualifier between Trencin and Legia Warsaw (which the Polish side won with a single goal).
Of particular disappointment were the number of chances that were not capitalised upon as both teams managed a total of 24 shots on goal with 13 of them on target.
There was further heartache as I was 50/50 on deciding to select this match or Fenerbache v Monaco. Sods Law I backed the wrong one, but this happens in betting and hindsight (or a Delorean time machine) is a great luxury. So running profit/loss is -£5.00.
So tonight’s bet focuses on the Europa League qualifying matches and I’m hoping to take advantage of some mismatches and with the number of competitive matches available I’m going to push an extra selection in and make it a fourfold which pays 2.47/1 with Skybet.
This is bet 1 and stakes will be £5.
