78-58-7 on Soccer since World Cup up 23.85 units
Back 2 back days with a winning record on soccer, but losing due to my big plays losing. Ronaldo let me down. Ronaldo talked about how at Real Madrid people wanted to score for themselves, but at Juve it doesn’t matter who scores. Well, look in the mirror Ronaldo.. we all know you love to do that anyway. Dyabala came on as a sub and scored and almost scored again before you tried to steal it and were offsides disallowing the goal. Just imagine if Dybala did that to Ronaldo. This is not mentioning the 3 clear chances Ronaldo bottled in the first 25 minutes of the game. I do like Ronaldo, but it is games like this that make me think Messi is better. I digress..
Sevilla at -294 for 4 units. Sevilla have won 8 games in a row at home. The Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium (that I took a photo of as the header photo for this website) is good to Sevilla. Sevilla needs to match or do better than Standard Liege if they want to move on. It is hard to believe that a team fighting for the La Liga title is in this position, but here we are. Pablo Sarabia is in-form for Sevilla. Krasnodar are leading the group and are moving onto the next round unless the highly unlikely happens. Sevilla lost the last meeting 2-1, with Tornike Okriashvili scoring the winner for Krasnodar. Sevilla did not start Silva, Sarabia, or Vazquez in that game. I think all 3 start today in this crucial game and make a huge difference.
Celtic at +164 for 3 units.
Celtic/Salzburg draw at +241 for 1 unit. Salzburg are comfortably winning their group and are 14 points clear in their domestic campaign. This is a great chance for them to rotate some younger players in and give their starters a rest. Odsonne Edouard has 9 goals in his last 14 games for Celtic. The Scottish Giants have to avoid a loss here to move on. Celtic haven’t lost at home to European competition this season. Also, they have a good habit of scoring first at home.
Besiktas at -151 for 2 units. In a wide open group, Besiktas advance without losing here. Malmo have to win to move on. Malmo FF haven’t played a competitive game in two weeks, as their domestic season ended a month ago. Vagner Love has come into form for Besiktas. Vodafone Park in Istanbul is not an easy place for opponents to come play. Besiktas have only lost twice at home in eighteen European matches. I want to make this a bigger play, but Besiktas only needing a draw keeps me from doing that.
