Birmingham are worthy favourites at 8/15 with Betfred to prevail in their Europa League Group H contest against bottom club Maribor but the result may not be enough to take the Blues through to the next stage as Club Bruges need just a point at home to Braga to join the Portuguese outfit in the knockout phase.
That match in Belgium is a tasty 19/10 (Coral) to finish all square but City nevertheless look a banker to at least ensure that the current group leaders have to pick up a result.
Similarly, a victory is unlikely to be enough for Tottenham to progress. Harry Redknapp’s side are a safe bet at 4/9 with Skybet to see off Shamrock, who prop up Group A having lost all five matches but PAOK and Rubin Kazan both just need a point from their meeting to qualify and they’re just 7/5 via Stan James to share the spoils in Greece.
Celtic meanwhile, require a victory in Udinese to pip the Italians to second place but the solid hosts are likely to have too much for Neil Lennon’s men, who are missing a couple of key figures and a home win is the pick at 8/13 with Totesport.
Treble on Birmingham, Tottenham and Udinese – 5/2 (Betfred)
