Europa League First Round

Tonight sees the start of the Europa League for most sides. However Stoke and Fulham have been at this for a while now already!

I see that Modric is missing from the Spurs team and subs bench who face Hearts tonight, suggesting that he is on his way to Chelsea and therefore not cup tied!

I would expect Defoe to have a good game as he tries to improve on last season and hold down a regular place in the starting line up at Spurs.

As such I take Defoe to score first at 5/1 and also Defoe to score at any time at 6/4. The score at any time covers the fact of him not scoring first and therefore gives a slight profit, should Defoe score first as I expect then I will win on both counts.


  1. Defoe on 13 mins - that'll be a small profit then.

    Good to see Mr. Van Der Vaart back on target though!

  2. The next goal being a penalty is currently priced at 10/1. Seems good value to me.......

  3. Yep i went the wrong way with the strikers so the cover bet gets me out of jail and a small profit to boot. Never knock the profit no matter how small! 12/1 with Bet365 for the next goal to be a pen!
