Sporting Week ahead with Bet365 23/02/21

Horse Racing Week ahead with Bet365 :

It’s probably the last week we see potential Cheltenham clues before the countdown begins for the Festival properly, the all-important weights for handicap races are released this week so a mass of antepost bets look set to be placed once the ‘good things’ are found in the markets.

There is some high-grade action throughout the week and with the weather significantly improving there is plenty for punters to get their teeth stuck into, most notably Wednesday’s Punchestown meeting looks a cracker with the Grade 3 Quevega Mares Hurdle. Ireland also hosts graded action on Thursday at Thurles before the UK action kicks in for the weekend

Brazilian Serie A

What an end to Brazil’s Serie A we have in store, the final game of the season is set to take place on Friday (12:20am UK time) where Flamengo or Internacional will lift the trophy.

Flamengo lead Serie A by two, sitting on 71 points; they are closely followed by Inter on 69 points. A win seals Flamengo their second successive title, but a slip up would see Internacional take the title providing they get all three points.

They faced each other last night with Flamengo winning 2-1, this should give them the momentum ahead of a tough game away at Sao Paolo, Inter on the other hand are at home to Corinithians but they may not recover from the fact that if they had beaten Flamengo last night then the title was theirs. Gabriel Barbosa hit the winning goal to hand the advantage to Flamengo where he will be hoping to do the same later this week.
