Today sees the start of the "big" pre season tournaments and I am looking at four of those matches.....


In the Amsterdam tournament there are points available for every goal scored, so a 3-3 draw has the same value as a 1-0 win, therefore there seems little point in sitting back too much and I could see these two well matched teams providing plenty of entertainment.They seem just about on a par in terms of fitness, although the Portugese side have a couple more games under their belt. Both have new coach's in charge and we can expect the players to be out to impress, Steve Bruce likes to build up some momentum through pre season and we all saw the value of that with his Wigan side last season. There is more competition for starting places at the Stadium of Light this year and I would just favour them here, but prefer the "over" .

5 points "over" 2.5 goals 2.12 asian line.

Good Luck.
