Andrew Hughes thinks Bradford and Millwall will play out a draw in Saturday's League One Play-Off final in another of his weekend sports multiples.
“We can expect Bradford to have the majority of the possession, while Millwall try to break up play and hit their opponents on the counter…”
Fifth take on sixth in Saturday's League One play-off final and on what is sure to be a tense occasion, the draw looks to be the best option.
Bradford finished one place ahead of the weekend's opponents in the League One table, but as Alan Dudman points out in his must-read match preview, there was little to choose between these sides during the regular season.
We can expect Bradford to have the majority of the possession, while Millwall try to break up play and hit their opponents on the counter, and both Bradford's inability to put teams away and Millwall's clean sheet record point to this Wembley final being a low scoring stalemate that runs into extra-time.
Super League's Magic Weekend at St James' Park features this intriguing evening clash between two of the giants of rugby league.
Wigan have won the last three meetings, including an impressive 38-16 victory at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in March, and have had the stronger start to their Super League campaign, lying four places above Warrington in the table.
But the Warriors have lost their way in recent weeks, losing by fifty points to Castleford and being well beaten by Salford, while Tony Smith's side are on a roll, having won six of their last seven. This should be tight, but all the momentum is with the Wolves and they can edge it.
Exeter have a good recent record in semi-final matches and go into this encounter having won their last eight Aviva Premiership games, picking up maximum points on each occasion. But they will need to find another level to beat Saracens.
The European Champions are fresh from retaining their continental title at Murrayfield last weekend and have won five of their last eight Premiership Rugby Semi-Finals. They have a good record at Sandy Park and are unbeaten in their last five against Exeter. Back Sarries to see off determined opponents on Saturday.
