After a Saturday night spent listening to the latest German minimalist dub step synth beats – all turned ‘ironically’ up to 11 of course – Sunday is a time for rest and the perfect chance to partake in Europe’s greatest export: football.
So after a morning spent recharging with a glass of organically-grown bio-shake – basically the contents of a salad put through a blender with soy milk – it’s time to crack open a bottle of Kronenbrauer ethically-brewed non-alcoholic wheat beer and start the soccer party.
With such selfie-taking legends as Francesco Totti and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in action I will be in good company too, so why not sit back, relax and have a gander at my latest Eurocentric predictions and a fourfold paying 32/1 with Ladbrokes.
Things start early in Belgium with this barmstormer of a clash. Yes, Standard have been in good form but Anderlecht are the big bullies of Belgian soccer, winning eight in a row going into this game, and I fully expect them to take the hosts’ lunch money and a lot more besides here.
When the Giallorossi aren’t busy posing for Rome Derby day selfies they love nothing more than beating Fiorentina, winning each of the last five Serie A meetings between the sides, and it’s difficult to see any other outcome at the Artemio Franchi.
Back in the big time and aiming to reaching the heady heights of the Rafa Benitez glory era, Valencia ended Real Madrid’s mental winning run and get my vote here having beaten the Andalusians in each of their previous three visits to the mighty Mestalla.
Oh Zlatan, what have they done to you? It seems like things are far from sunny with the reigning Ligue 1 champions but the results continue to come with PSG winning four of their last five in all competitions including a 1-0 win over St Etienne in the Coupe de la Ligue.
