FOUR FOOTBALL matches this week appeal as useful material to include in some trebles. It is difficult to understand why Manchester United are clear favourites to beat the smart Brazilian club Palmeiras in the World Club Cup in Japan today. The South American outfit look sure to give a good account and it is not hard to envisage the game ending in deadlock.

Knockout games provide good draw material and tomorrow night struggling Aston Villa may fail to dispatch Southampton, who put up a spirited display against Leeds on Sunday, in 90 minutes in the fourth round of the Worthington Cup at Villa Park. Meanwhile, at Craven Cottage, the useful First Division outfit Fulham could contain Premiership Tottenham to a draw in 90 minutes.

On Thursday, Leeds will go home happy if they secure a draw in their rearranged third-round Uefa Cup tie with Spartak Moscow in Sofia.

n Suggested bets: Four x pounds 1 trebles with Ladbrokes: Manchester United to draw with Palmeiras (11-5); Aston Villa to draw with Southampton (12- 5); Fulham to draw with Tottenham (9-4); Spartak Moscow to draw with Leeds (12-5). (pounds 4 staked).
