Bullish about taking on the Germans again
TAKING on a German side turned out so well for me in the Europa League on Thursday night that I'm sticking with the magic formula for Friday's action.
However, applying that magic formula to Borussia Dortmund v Stuttgart in order to decide who to go against is proving less easy, especially because, quite clearly, they're both German.
Dortmund are tearing up the Bundesliga again but Stuttgart are in decent nick and appear to be on the up, so it's tough to get too excited about the league leaders.
Even so, they thrashed Cologne last time out and can be absolutely lethal, although key man Mario Gotze is missing.
It's a really tough one and as a wise man once told me, in these circumstances the smart move is to keep the powder dry.
So I imagine I'll be having a first goalscorer bet.
