UEFA CUP ...........


I was planning to bet Villarreal, but wanted to take them with the level ball option and the odds look a bit skinny now, so going to pass, but will add a few notes. Obviously Zenit are in their mid winter break and unusually, both teams are flying in from Spain, where ZSP have been training, for this match. Hosts sold two key defenders to English clubs and a replacement is not registered in time to play, Lombaerts is suspended and they will be forced to play a midfielder in central defence. Pretty cold in St Petersburg and some light snow.

Brann have not played since December 3rd, which is a terrible disadvantage and I can assure you that, dispite going for a Champions league spot in the Premiership, that Everton are very keen on this competition and with no league match at the weekend, can be expected to give their all, this is a club desperate for some silverware. No Arteta in the squad, but a "forgiven" Yakubu has been added and will be looking to get back into David Moyes' good book. Everton have won all 3 away ties in Europe and should make it 4 in a row.

5 points Everton -1/2 ball 1.77 + asian line.

Good Luck.
