Replays are sometimes quite difficult betting mediums – by definition the two teams have already been too closely matched to separate once, and with extra time now available as well I wouldn’t put anyone off picking out a few for draws and doing a multiple fixed odds bet. However, I think there are sound reasons to believe that it could be worth betting on another low scoring affair between Leyton Orient and Championship contenders Hull. The teams went 78 minutes without a goal in the first leg before the League One side took the lead; Hull’s blushes spared thanks to an equaliser deep into injury time. It’s fair to say that both these teams rely more on their defence than attack. The Os have conceded only 14 times in 13 league games at The Matchroom Stadium. Hull’s tally of 16 league goals conceded on their travels is bettered only by Leicester (12) and Brighton (14). It could take a while to get going.
Cristiano Ronaldo was suspended for Real Madrid’s weekend game with Osasuna which they drew 0-0 and incredibly didn’t have a shot on goal until the 90th minute. They play improving Valencia tonight in the first round of the Copa Del Rey Quarter final which is live on Sky Sports. Madrid go off 1/3 favourites with the draw 4/1 and an away win 9/1. It’s 8/11 both teams score with Ronaldo 2/1 to score the first goal.
