Sorry for the lack of posting yesterday - it was a manic night but I still got some Champions League trades in and we did well.

I did the following:

Chelsea v CSKA Moscow - Lay Under 3.5 Goals. This one went well as there were no goals until near enough half time and that was enough to see us out with £5 green. This is a prime example as to why you MUST trade out to lock in the profit. It turned out the game finished 4-1 so had we left it in as a bet, we'd have lost comfortably!

AC Milan v Real Madrid - Lay The Draw. This was a disappointment. Real went 1-0 up and looked comfortable but just as we were due to trade out for another £5 green, Inzaghi spoiled the party by equalising. We had to take the loss as the stop loss was activated and we lost £7 on this game. Disappointing but these things happen. As it turned out, had we left it in we would have won the trade as AC took the lead again on 78 minutes, but we were already out and the game ended up finishing 2-2. £2 on the night.

Shakhtar v Arsenal - Lay Arsenal. Arsenal have never won in the Ukraine and the last four games between these sides have been won by the team at home. The Shakhtar we saw at the Emirates a couple of weeks ago was not a good reflection of the very good team that they actually are. They should have been too strong for a weakened Arsenal and so it proved, despite Walcott giving the gunners the lead early on. A good result in this one and we were able to trade out at half time with Shakhtar 2-1 up. £7.50.

The final trade of the night was Auxerre v Ajax - Lay Ajax. Auxerre are a strong side at home in the Champions League and so it proved tonight as they were pretty comfortable throughout. As soon as Auxerre took the lead early on we were able to trade out for our £6.50.

So all in all a good night, with only one losing trade. £12 green on the night and the bank is heading back up.

Day 4 Profit/Loss:
Closing Bank: £92.96
