ANTE-POST Uefa Cup selection Atletico Madrid could shock Lazio in the second leg of their Uefa Cup semi-final tomorrow tonight in Italy. Lazio won the first leg in Spain 1-0, but Atletico, who look good value at 5- 1 with Coral, have a fine away record in Europe this season and come into this tie fresh from their comprehensive 3-0 victory over Deportivo Coruna in La Liga on Saturday. Serie A outfit Lazio, on the other hand, failed to impress when only drawing 1-1 at lowly Brescia at the weekend.

Monaco are a fair bet at 7-4 to beat Juventus in the second leg of their European Cup semi-final on Wednesday. Juventus, 4-1 winners of the first leg, may be happy to sit on their lead. They can afford to lose 2-0 and still go through to the final and will be taking no chances with injuries on Monaco's dreadful pitch, which Manchester United fans remember with little affection.

Borussia Dortmund, who gained a creditable 1-1 draw with the Bundesliga leaders, Kaiserslautern, at the weekend, can beat Real Madrid, who lost 2-1 at Celta Vigo. The Spanish giants won the home leg 2-0 but will find life a lot tougher in Germany and their overall recent form is disappointing.

Vicenza, who creditably drew 1-1 at Fiorentina at the weekend, are value at 11-2 with Ladbrokes to beat Chelsea in the second leg of their Cup Winners' Cup semi-final. Chelsea beat struggling Spurs 2-0 on Saturday but looked bereft of ideas in the first leg in Italy and, 1-0 down from that contest, could be vulnerable to the decent Italian outfit at the back if forced to chase the game.

The County Championship starts this week and Kent, who should less affected than most by England call-ups this summer, look a fair bet at 7-1 with Coral.
