Adrian Clarke’s Best Bet

Adrian has opted for Portuguese giants Benfica as his best bet this week.

Having been fantastic in the group stages he thinks they can replicate that from in Brugge on Wednesday night.

Feeling Scott Parker is not the right man for the Belgian champions he is happy to take Benfica on the nose.

Recommended Bet: Brugge vs Benfica (1.91)

Mark O’Haire’s Best Bet

If you are not a regular reader of Mark’s insights column (why wouldn’t you be?) he has opposed a struggling Milan side a few times this season, notably with Inter in the Derby a few weeks ago.

It is fair to say Milan are a shell of the side that romped to Serie A success last season, though Spurs have plenty problems of their own.

Leaning with Spurs but hesitant due to cluster injuries/suspensions in midfield he is opting for both teams to find the net at least once in this one.

Recommended Bet: Milan vs Spurs BTTS (1.78)

Miguel Delaney’s Best Bet

Miguel in a similar capacity, cannot trust the Rossoneri.

At the San Siro on Tuesday evening he expects a more astute Spurs performance than we saw at the weekend.

He can see the North London outfit keeping Milan at bay and hitting them on the break with a direct and speedy attack.
