Man Utd finally fulfil their game in hand tonight when they face Fulham at Old Trafford. All signs point to a home win but there isn’t any value in that. There’s an interesting stat that Fulham have been level at half time in all of their away games this year. They’ve gone on to lose half and draw half of those twelve matches. I could see a similar thing happening tonight where Utd break them down in the second half. Try draw half-time/Man Utd full-time @ 10/3.
Aston Villa face CSKA Moscow tonight in the UEFA Cup. Martin O’Neill has talked about how important it is to keep the opposition in the first leg and I imagine he may set up quite defensively even though it’s at Villa Park. CSKA haven’t played competitively since December 4th and are missing a few players so may not be too adventurous in anticipation of keeping it close for the return in Moscow. Perhaps the bet to go for is under 2.5 goals @ 1.86.
Elsewhere I like the home chances of Sampdoria, Shakhtar Donetsk and Fiorentina. A treble gives you odds of 5.5.
