The footballing juggernaut shows no sign of slowing down as tonight and Friday night boast high-profile games for Premier League clubs.
Manchester United’s multiple roads to the Champions League take a pit-stop in Spain where a two-legged tie with Celta Vigo stands in their way of reaching the Europa League final.
Meanwhile, Tottenham go on the prowl at West Ham’s London Stadium as their hunt for the Premier League crown continues – with just four games remaining.
After successfully landing a 9/2 double on Wednesday night, we thought we’d have another bite at the cherry. Our double comes in at just over 15/2 and here’s why we’ve selected them…
Celta Vigo v Manchester United, BT Sport 2, 8.05pm
Thursday’s game might finally offer some clarity about where United’s focus should be to the end of the season.
Both paths to the Champions League remain open for José Mourinho’s men, although for many pundits, the Europa League route to the promised land, seems less complicated.
They meet a Celta Vigo side woefully out of form having lost three games on the spin.
The Spaniards have also lost three of their last four home games, failing to score in all those defeats. That kind of record must give an injury-ravaged United hope and unsurprisingly they’re 13/10 favourites to claim the opening leg of this semi-final.
However, Celta’s struggles in front of goal lately has us fancying the 5/2 shot of Man United to win to nil. After all, Jose does love to park a bus!
Best bet: Manchester United to win to nil at 5/2
West Ham v Tottenham, Sky Sports 1, 8pm
With their title rivals Chelsea not playing until Monday against Middlesbrough, Friday’s contest against West Ham is a chance for Spurs to bridge the gap at the top of the table to a point.
A win for Tottenham would heap massive pressure on The Blues and they face a West Ham side who just can’t hammer the winning nail on the head in their new home, picking up just six wins at the London Stadium all season.
The Hammers have also been a blunt force in front of goal lately, failing to find the net in their last two outings.
Scoring isn’t a problem for Mauricio Pochettino’s charges as you have to go back to February to find the last time they drew a blank in front of goal.
Spurs have kept four clean sheets in their last five games and we’re tipping them to do it again on Friday night at 6/4. This title race isn’t over just yet!
Best bet: Tottenham to win to nil at 6/4
