THE SWEEPER gets his sarnies from Ready To Eat and loves Red Cafe. No euro sceptic he. We're off into Europe this week so let's dive in for a European portfolio. Manchester United could not have wished for a better time to meet out-of-form, injury-plagued Internazionale while Ukranian giants Dynamo Kiev can oust beleaguered holders Real Madrid. They're the ante-post advice for the European Cup, while the Uefa Cup surely rests between Italian big boys Parma and French league leaders Marseilles. There's only one possible winner of the Cup Winner's Cup and it's not Chelsea. Lazio, the best club on the planet, are tub-thumping certainties. Meanwhile, this week-end, let's put Sheffield Wednesday to bury Boro in trebles with three likely draws, while Fiorentina may be held to a draw on C4 by Salernitana.
