AN incredible nine winners from his last 11 bookings tips suggestions, Gavin Murphy (@GamePlanGavin) expects to continue his hot streak with a Tuesday night Champions League selection.

Monday night’s winner means we’ve managed nine winners from our last 11 bookings tips and I’m confident that we can continue the run on Tuesday night when Champions league action returns.
Group G catches the eye as the stakes already begin to get raised for the smaller teams in the pot. Chelsea and Porto do battle in Portugal but my focus is on the other two teams in the pool with Maccabi Tel Aviv hosting Dynamo Kiev.
This is the Israeli outfit’s first Champions League home game in 11 years and they’ll be bang up for it.
The whistleblower is Spaniard David Fernandez Borbalan and he took charge of Maccabi’s match with Basel in 2014, dishing out five cards. Borbalan also officiated Kiev previously and gave three yellows and a red, so he has form with both teams.
In his last 10 European games he’s handed out 56 cards and in 9/10 games he has handed out at least five cards. The average is only lowered because he kept his cards in his pocket when Roma thrashed CSKA Moscow 5-1 in a game where the Russians were badly outclassed.
With so much at stake for these two teams, I am taking the 7/10 on Over 45 bookings points with William Hill. With one yellow equalling 10 bookings points and a red carrying 25 points, I reckon there’s a strong case for backing overs in Tel Aviv.
