<2.30> <3.10> <2.70>

atletico level would be a brilliant bet, cos i dun see them getting beaten by a rather mediocre PSV side. psv boast the likes of timmy simons, danny koevermans, ibrahim afellay, and carlos salcido. i use the word "boast" very liberally here, as those players are hardly ones you'll see strutting their stuff in a major european league anytime soon. and no, the dutch eredivisie doesnt count as a major european league. anyway, atletico were defeated by valladolid 2-1 at the weekend, but that was because chief strikers diego forlan and sergio aguero were rested. with them leading the line in eindhoven, i expect the psv defence to endure a torrid time. while atletico did very well in the transfer market, strengthening with johnny "lil jon" heitinga, paulo assuncao among others, adding defensive steel, psv replaced unreliable keeper heurelho gomes with andreas iSUCKsson, who is even more unreliable. i think there is a huge gulf in class here, and atletico should prevail. to end this lengthy post off, carlos salcido warned atletico, saying that there would be "an electric atmosphere" awaiting the atletico players. READ: psv sux, therefore they have to rely on home atmosphere. poor carlos salcido is possibly shitting in his pants now, thinking of one-one-ones with aguero, forlan and simao.

Eddy's prediction: $5 on atletico @ 2.70 = $13.50
