Aarr! Welcome to the DRT eletter. It is not a Pirates of the Caribbean special. I just want to get across to you that next week sees the return of the Champions League and the Europa League.
These 2 competitions can be great distractions for sides in domestic league action this Friday (Leipzig), Saturday and Sunday.
Be it subconsciously (‘mustn’t get injured!!’) or tactically (‘ must rest some of the big guns this weekend’) , teams simply consistently under perform prior to European Club competition.
You have been warned!
I would even be tempted to lay any Champions League team especially whose odds are about 1.3 or lower in play. Time and again, I have regretted not laying Champions League contenders when at short odds.
I will see you for a live chat webinar this weekend but you’ll forgive my cautious demeanour over the coming 3 days. The inplay stats will be king!
See you over the coming weekend, and tread (trade?) wearily!
