Sports betting: Liverpool to lay low Vigo
Monday 07 December 1998
But that easy first leg win means Celta Vigo can afford to lose by a goal tomorrow and, although they would much prefer the comfort of an easy draw, the visitors are bound to defend deep all night and, if they go a goal down, are unlikely to make much of an effort to do anything about it.
Manchester United may be held to a draw by Bayern Munich in their Group D match in the Champions' League at Old Trafford on Wednesday. For a side which has conceded just 13 goals in 15 games in the Bundesliga this season, Bayern conceded two unbelievably soft goals in their 2-2 draw with United in Munich. And, despite Bayern's 2-2 draw at VfL Bochum on Friday night, United cannot bank on finding the Munich defence in such generous mood again.
And for Peter Schmeichel, the United goalkeeper, it might be a case of "able was I ere I saw Elber." For Giovanni, Bayern's outstanding Brazilian striker of that name, the leading goal scorer in the Bundesliga with nine goals, could easily run amok amid United's fragile defence.
With the Champions' League entering its final round of matches, there are some good bets to be had. In Group A, Porto, already eliminated, may go down to their visitors Ajax, who could qualify if they win, while in Group B, Athletic Bilbao (also out) may lose to Galatasaray, another club in with a chance of qualifying
In Group C, the moderate Sturm Graz (out) are unlikely to put up much of a battle against the fighting-for-survival Internazionale, while in Group E, Panathinaikos, despite losing 4-2 to Olympiakos on Saturday, could make short work of Arsenal (also eliminated) who will be without Tony Adams, Patrick Vieira, Nigel Winterburn, and Emmanuel Petit (all injured) and Dennis Bergkamp, who wisely eschews the big metal bird.
