Rain pain in Dundee but not in Spain

first_img[dropcap]F[/dropcap]orget the picture postcard from Dundee. The weather isn’t quite so nice today and the planned preview tonight has been waterlogged off.Dundee United’s Scottish Premiership clash with St Johnstone was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.An inspection on the Tannadice pitch carried out on Monday found the surface to be unplayable.With hindsight, I wish the rain had come in quantity at Stamford Bridge yesterday as Chelsea were a long way from defying the two goal handicap, so I’m afraid it was a loss of 6 points on the day but we’re still 10 points to the good in January.There’s a match in La Liga tonight, kicking off at 9pm, and it might not be as easy for Real Sociedad against Elche as the pre-match odds suggest.Certainly, Elche have a good H2H record against their rivals:HEAD TO HEAD RECORDSAug 2013 Primera Liga Elche 1-1 SociedadJun 2010 Segunda Elche 4-1 SociedadJan 2010 Segunda Sociedad 0-1 ElcheReal Sociedad are enjoying a much better season though than their rivals who are hovering just over the relegation places.However, they are struggling at home so far this year and will hope the return of Inigo Martinez from suspension will boost their chances.The reverse fixture ended 1-1 and a small interest in the draw has to be the call on Star Sports.Strangely enough, a draw was going to be my bet for the Dundee United match too.RECOMMENDED BET (1-10 points)4 points DRAW at around 7/2 with Star SportsRUNNING RETURN (JANUARY): PROFIT 10.72 POINTSWhat’s your view?
