Euro 2016 Punters All Over Carroll Unlike Rash
Weekend hat-trick hero Andy Carroll is now 10/1 from 33/1 to make the England Euro 2016 squad this summer with Marcus Rashford’s price going the other way after being hooked at half time against Spurs.
bet365’s Steve Freeth “Carroll was available at 33/1 before the Arsenal game, 14/1 at half time after his quick fire brace and that was soon 10/1 when he completed his hat-trick in the 52nd minute with Rashford now out to 20/1.
“A fit and firing Carroll may give Hodgson a ‘Plan B’ option, but fitness concerns may be against him.”
Betting Editorial Soccer – City paired with Real Madrid
Manchester City will play one of Manuel Pellegrini’s former sides, Real Madrid, in the semi-finals of the Champions League after edging past Paris St-Germain. The 62-year-old Chilean was in charge of Real in the 2009/10 campaign when they finished second in La Liga behind Barcelona. City are in the semi-finals of the competition for the first time in their history after securing a 3-2 aggregate victory against PSG. In the other semi-final Atletico Madrid will play Bayern Munich. Atletico caused a shock in the quarter-finals by beating the defending champions Barcelona, while Bayern Munich clinched a 3-2 aggregate success against Benfica after coming from behind to beat Juventus in the last-16. Manchester City are 15/2 with bet365 to win the Champions League this season, while Real Madrid can be backed at 15/8.
Soccer – Schweinsteiger set to miss United’s run-in
Bastian Schweinsteiger is unlikely to play for Manchester United again this season, according to Louis van Gaal. The 31-year-old former Bayern Munich midfielder has not played for United since last month’s victory in the Manchester derby. He sustained a knee injury while training with Germany before their recent friendly defeat to England. Van Gaal said: “I don’t think Schweinsteiger will play for us again this season. Maybe he will be able to play in the European Championship, but I cannot predict. “It is possible, but then that is also in our favour because then he is fit for the new season.” United’s next Premier League game is against rock-bottom Aston Villa. Van Gaal’s side are 10/1 with bet365 to beat Villa 4-0 on Saturday and are currently available at 7/2 to finish in the top four this season.
Soccer – Liverpool drawn against Villarreal
Liverpool will play Villarreal in the semi-finals of the Europa League after knocking Borussia Dortmund out of the competition. Jurgen Klopp’s side appeared to be heading out of the Europa League when, having drawn the first leg in Germany 1-1, they trailed 3-1 in the second leg at Anfield. However, three goals in the last 30 minutes by Philippe Coutinho, Mamadou Sakho and Dejan Lovren helped Liverpool clinch a dramatic victory. Meanwhile, the Yellow Submarine clinched an impressive 6-3 aggregate win against Sparta Prague in the quarter-finals having beaten Napoli and Bayer Leverkusen in the previous two rounds. The other semi-final sees Shakhtar Donetsk paired with Sevilla. Liverpool are 13/8 with bet365 to win the Europa League outright, while Sevilla can be backed at 7/4.
