The midweek Champions League extravaganza is just around the corner, but if you can’t wait that long, there’s a sizeable entre to tuck into tonight, with five games beamed into living rooms the world over.
That’s right folks, it’s the return of the channel hoppers acca and this latest instalment will see you spank the bookie to the tune of 13/1 if successful.
Torino v Napoli – Napoli @ 23/20
Rafa Benitez’s side are in Turin to light the Monday night touch paper and they’re set to continue their strong Serie A run with a win.
Atalanta are the only outfit to sink Partenopei in their last 14 league games and struggling Torino have warmed up for this one with three defeats on the spin without scoring a goal.
Roma v Udinese – Roma @ 2/5
The second calcio clash to feature will see the Giallorossi keep up their stellar home record with a 14th win in 17 Olimpico outings.
Napoli are the only visitor of the last eight to breach their defence and Udinese had lost on their last four visits to Roma prior to the previous campaign.
Luton v Woking – Luton @ 3/10
Striking a Friday 13th loss from the record, Southport are the only side to get the better of the Hatters in a Conference game since the curtain-raiser back in August.
The pacesetters have won six from nine league matches, shipping a paltry two and registering a monster 28 in this period.
Albion Rovers v Rangers – Rangers @ 1/10
We quickly hop north of the border to augment our accumulator with a Scottish FA Cup gimmie.
The unstoppable Gers have the League One title in the bag and victory over League Two also rans Albion will see them edge closer to an unlikely double.
Rovers may have held Rangers at Ibrox, but one league win in their last eight doesn’t inspire confidence of an upset.
Preston v Sheffield United – Draw @ 21/10
Join us on the fence for the final selection of this fivefold as the two of highest-flying League One sides collide at Deepdale.
The Blades have won ten on the bounce and are exercising newfound measures in the miserly, conceding a bagel in their previous seven.
No league side in 11 has bested Preston, however, and Nigel Clough’s men can’t possibly win every game from now until the end of the season, can they?
