Champions League Wednesday

Darn United. With 2 goals up, it was time to park the bus, but I suppose it is not in the DNA of the club to preserve the result. A very exciting game that ended 3-3 and that saved the blushes of the draw-no-bet punt I had on them. Got to give it to this young United team that fights till the end, were it not for their defensive frailties, they are almost a complete team. They are certainly getting there.

On Wednesday, the only certain punt looks to be Barcelona traveling to Borisov. Clearly, the gulf in class should ensure that the European champions get all 3 points even without playing some first-team members. They are recommended as a safe draw-no-bet. In the same group, Milan host the Czech team Viktoria. While on paper, this would appear to be a formality for the Italians, I would not be surprised if they fail to win this match. They have a depleted team and Viktoria is not a team of push-overs. There might be an offset in the offing, and it might pay to lay the heavily-favored hosts. No recommendation there, but the Italians look very exposed value-wise, in my opinion.

Draw-no-bet: Barcelona
