Man. City did the business last night with a 1st class performance to take a 2-1 lead back to the Etihad and put themselves in the driving seat in the race for that Champions League final spot. You wouldn't bet against an all England final now!
No one got the first goalscorer but the 1-2 result.... let's say there were more than a few of you! Full details at the end!
As for tonight, it's the turn of the Europa League Semis with both first legs taking place and with Man. U having what looks like the easiest game on paper at home to Roma/ However, I thought I'd choose the trickier game between...
Let's start with Arsenal who by their standards are having a rotten season, sat in 10th in the Premier League and not being able to string together any sort of consistency other than mediocre! This is their only chance of silverware this week so if this game doesn't motivate them, nothing will. In their favour, both Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are available after malaria and injury but Tierney and Luiz are doubtful.
Villareal are also having a rather underwhelming season sat 7th in La Liga but have no major injury issues and will be looking to get a good result before the return leg in London next week.
There will be goals in this game I feel and so...
Prediction: Villareal 2 : 2 Arsenal - First Goalscorer: Morena
Simply write the name of the FIRST GOALSCORER and the CORRECT SCORE as a comment. The competition closes 5 minutes before kick-off which is 20.00 BST
The Small Print
In the first goalscorer competition, own goals do not count. In the correct score competition, it's the score after 90mins. Extra time and penalties do not count and the pot for each competition will roll over if there is no winner. If more than one person chooses the same first goalscorer or correct score, the prize is shared and everyone gets a little upvote! It seems I also need to add, one entry per person. Don't forget the new rule that only people with a rep of 45 or above are eligible to enter unless they have been approved. The bonus will be added to any winnings ONLY if Leeds United win and/or Man U lose and all payouts will never exceed 50% of post payout. Other bonuses paid out at my discretion.
The Winners were...
Well done to @cabinet24, @yeckingo01, @dealhunter and @harpreetjanda who take home 1250+500 for getting the correct 1-2 scoreline and appearance fees go out to @jfang003, @evegrace, @hykss.sports, @jersteemit and @pusen ....who didn't lol !!
