Olimp3kSignUp jan19The contestants have been thinned out and its Round of 16 time in the Champions League. The red-hot Solskjaer inspired Man U host the new age all-stars, PSG in the headline act on Tuesday and Spurs take on Dortmund on Wednesday.

 

 

 

 

Life is all about timing and it seems the universe is aligning for the Red Devils at present. There is no sign of the bubble bursting around the rejuvenated Red Devils as their attacking game in particular has been exceptional since Mourinho exited stage left. On the other side of the coin Paris Saint-Germain travel to England without their most lethal weapon, Neymar. Edinson Cavani and Thomas Meunier are two other stars missing for the big-shot French outfit.

There is still a boat load of talent in the PSG team though and Mbape for one will be keen to test a Manchester United defensive line which has often relied merely on De Gea to get them out of trouble. Still, one has to think opportunities like this don’t come around all that often and the hosts will be keen to capitalise – it’s a Man U win for me and possibly expecting a few goals to flow in this one.

On Wednesday it’s Tottenham’s turn to welcome the German’s with the fanatical fan base, Borussia Dortmund. The “lesser” Germans last won the Bundesliga in 2012 and find themselves in a very realistic position of breaking the six-year run of the uber-Germans, Bayern.

Tottenham for their part struggled to get to grips with some crushing injury blows yet have somehow been able to right the ship of late. A lot of speculation around the football fraternity is focussed on the highly rated Mauricio Pochettino and his future. Surely he needs to get close to winning some silverware with his Tottenham chargers for him to consider staying on in a job where it seems his only target (and only achievable accolade it seems) is finishing in England’s top 4.

So on the one side we have a team who have only lost one league game all season, but who might be more focussed on their domestic efforts and staying out of reach of their arch rivals in that comp. They face a team focussed on trying to go as far as they possibly can in Europe (showing their coach they are worth hanging around for) yet limping somewhat in terms of player availability.

It’s tough calling this one and the only bet I like is one at short odds. Perhaps throw this into a few football multiples over the weekend.

I’ll admit a bias here. Though I was never a forward myself I just love it when the brick shit house, the tall timber, the big boys, the fatties either get over for an unlikely score or play an important role in the lead-up to a try – it just catches my eye more than when it is pulled off by the fast, skinny blokes alone. On that note I’d like to jump right into a few of these moments that we witnessed during the last full round of Super Rugby in 2019.
