Intertoto Cup : Does money talk ?

July 22nd, 2006

We’re got the final round of the Intertoto cup on Saturday, and after a few surprise results in the first leg there are a few “big clubs” that really do need to win their second match in ordr to progress.

That generally is good news for punters as it means that both the club and the bettor are striving for the same result and that there will be no tame “honourable” draws in the second match.

One tie that really does catch my eye on Saturday is being played in Norway where Lillestrom host English giant Newcastle United.

Newcastle were not impressive in the first match – but got better as the game went on and with an extra week and some match play under their belts I think are worth a shot here.

The bookmakers are offering some tasty prices with PinnacleSports being very generous in offering 2.22 for Newcastle to manage the away win. That’s worth taking. 


Here is a full match preview at with the suggestion that the organisers might also like to see the bigger side progress as well.
