KING OF THE CARDS Gavin Murphy (@GamePlanGavin) shares his thoughts on the best bookings bets from Wednesday night’s coupon.
Frosinone v Bologna | Wednesday 17.30 | BT Sport Europe
There is bonus midweek action from Italy and the early kick-off catches my eye as Bologna travel south to battle Frosinone.
Bologna sit 10th whilst the hosts are starting to get cut adrift in 19th. These really are must win games for Frosinone.
In the meeting earlier this season there were nine cards dished out.
This time around, Andrea Gervasoni is the man with the whistle. To be honest, he has escaped my attention so far this year, but when looking at his record, he loves a card…
Gervasoni has flashed seven or more cards in seven of his nine Serie A matches.
Frosinone’s home games average 6.80 cards-per-game plenty of reds thrown into. So I’ll back Over 65 Bookings Points at 21/20 with William Hill.
If you’re new to Bookings Points, a yellow card earns 10 points and a red card earns 25 points. If a player receives 2 yellow cards and is consequently shown a red card, he receives a total of 35 booking points.
Barcelona v Valencia | Wednesday 19.30
It’s Copa Del Rey semi-final time as Gary Neville takes his Valencia outfit to the Camp Nou to try and stifle Barcelona.
Surely Valencia’s best hope is to keep the tie competitive ahead of the return leg. That should mean they adhere to their reputation as one of Spain’s dirtiest teams.
I was delighted to see Senor Moonpig (Ignacio Villanueva) given the whistle. Villanueva is one of my favourite referees as he gives the cards when they should be issued. No messing about.
Frosinone v Bologna – Over 65 Bookings Points (21/20 William Hill)
Barcelona v Valencia – Over 55 Bookings Points (21/20 William Hill)
Since returning from injury, Lionel Messi has scored 15 goals in 15 games, only failing to net on four occasions.
