Week-end preview

My pick on QPR, what an absolute disaster; they got trounced 1-3 at home to Watford... I will have to double-check this, but I think that this is the first wrong football pick I've made since the Man Utd/West Brom one on Day 1 of this blog. There goes the winning streak, and OK, this QPR episode was my first and last ever Championship football prediction here, for sure!

Time for a new winning football streak to start and what better way than with some of the week-end match-ups.
In Spain, Real Madrid and Barcelona should continue their winning ways and are outright win recommendations. Madrid are at bottom-place Zaragoza, and as long as they don't miss Higuain too much, they should edge this. Barcelona are at home to Sociedad, and on their form, they simply will not drop any points.

Bayern Munich will not lose to St Pauli at home. They should win this, but because of their see-saw results in the League, it's safer to have them as draw-no-bet.

The Premier League is loaded with tight matches, and it will not be surprising to see many drawn matches. Obviously, the 2 key games on the agenda are Spurs v/s Chelsea, and Man Utd v/s Arsenal. I believe the results can go either way in both, so like the other matches, it's impossible to recommend any Premier League game.

In racing, I live Oversteer in the first Southwell race on Saturday. If it adapts well on its first time out on this fibresand surface, this Gosden colt should take all the beating. Being by Empire Maker, the surface should suit on paper. I believe the danger will come from the 2 Dubai Destination geldings in this race. To play it safe, I recommend Oversteer as a Place.

Win: Real Madrid, Barcelona.
Draw-no-bet: Bayern Munich
Place: Oversteer.
