Going to put three posts online in quick succession, they will all be fairly brief, one, the Serie A selection, just a few lines.

These two are competing for the final Champions League play-off spot, still up for grabs. The visitors currently lead by one point, but cannot settle for a draw, as they would then risk being passed by either Roda or Groningen, who are immediately behind and both are at home today.

Obviously a win would take either in, so we can expect both to really go for it, they shared 7 goals in the reverse fixture and there are sure to be goals today. However, no "over" bet for me here, I like the hosts.

Heerenveen have a fully fit squad to choose from and arrive in good form, having only lost to champions elect AZ in their last 7 starts.

Feyenoord have really gone off the rails, they have only one win in 8 and have conceded 3 or more 6 times, in 2007 alone. They have 6 long term injuries and these will probably be joined by 2-3 others.

Missing out on the play-offs seemed unthinkable, just a few weeks ago and now, is a very realistic prospect and I feel for them to suddenly turn things around, is unlikely, to be honest, a team with a -6 goal difference, should not even be in contention.

Feyenoord have not won at the Abe Lenstra Stadion this Millenium and I do not feel that is about to change.

5 points Heerenveen -1/2 ball 2.15 general quote. won 5-1 + 5.75 pts

Good Luck.
