When Sean posted this morning saying he was risking €8.68, I immediately decided to stand back and not bet today. Yes he might storm into the lead if it comes off but I wasn’t sure about any of the matches today. I probably would have gone for Maccabi Haifa if I was backing any but I am glad I didn’t. I am hoping Sean did back them though as they went three down and he might have tried to lay his way out of trouble at this point! In saying that, he’s been very strategic so far and I won’t be surprised if he went for some kind of draw/no bet strategy.

Anyway, enough of the second guessing, I’m just checking back in to let you know I’m still patient even though I might have fallen further behind today. I’m sure we’ll find out when Sean posts later tonight or tomorrow. If I am further behind, then I’ll need to pull a great bet out of somewhere and I’ll need to guarantee a big return on investment. For now though, I’m happy to play a waiting game until I see something that I really fancy!
Tonight’s results in the Champions League 3rd Round qualifier were:
- Maccabi Haifa FC 4 – 3 FK Aktobe
- Sivasspor 3 – 1 RSC Anderlecht
- NK Dinamo Zagreb 1 – 2 FC Salzburg
- Panathinaikos FC 3 – 0 AC Sparta Praha
- FC Twente 1 – 1 Sporting Clube de Portugal
** Update – Sean posted about 20 seconds after me – he’s won again! 4 in a row – he’s flying – I might need to bet big tomorrow yeah right!
