Super Sunday?

Part two of this weekend's spectacular six.

All four of our European dream teams are in action. A prospect that makes the mouth water.

Hearts v Dundee United
Last week United were involved in one of the strangest European confusions I've seen since a holiday rep offered me a day trip to the world famous continent of Morocco. In tricky circumstances they acquitted themselves not too badly against a team that is, simply, better than them. A slow start to the season though and that makes a trip to Tynecastle a bit daunting. Home win.

Motherwell v Celtic
How do you defend a two goal lead in a European second leg. I wouldn't look here for answers. No clues about winning a home tie against nine men either. But some standard SPL fare to get us all back on an even keel. We'll have that by the bucket load. Scoring draw.

St Mirren v Hibs
Hibs seem to be the TV choice of the moment. Understandable given the 16 goals scored in their four competitive matches so far. Unfortunately they've conceded 11 and only scored five. Rumours swirl around Anthony Stokes, a transfer that would leave John Hughes a bit short handed up front. In the meantime they might just secure an away win today.

So far: Bad day at the office yesterday means it's only 6 out of 15.
