The Spoiler Bet of the Day
Who do we turn to in our hour of need? Steve McClaren!
It’s been a horrible few days. Firstly, Man United flopped when all the long shots in our Champions League accumulator delivered and then Lyon once again mugged Liverpool in injury time yesterday.
When your luck is down, you probably don’t want to be relying on a Goodison Park goalfest, Spanish strugglers finding form and Steve McClaren. The Spoiler loves a long shot though…
Over 2.5 goals in Everton/Benfica
Six of Everton’s last seven European games have produced three goals or more. Benfica are the most prolific team in Portugal by miles and thumped five past the Toffees a fortnight ago.
Villarreal to beat Lazio
Lazio’s last-gasp win in the reverse fixture was one of only two triumphs in their last dozen fixtures. By contrast, Villarreal have won their two league games since, thumping Tenerife 5-0 last Sunday.
FC Twente to beat Sheriff Tiraspol
Steve McClaren’s men were stunned in Moldova, suffering their only loss in 21 games this season but have bounced back with three wins since. Their only home loss of the last year came in February.
