There’s a bumper night of football action on Tuesday night with the Capital One Cup and Champions League action dominating the fixture list, and I’m very hopeful tonight’s treble can give us a good run for our money.
Being the 2nd leg of the Champions League ties teams will know exactly what they need to get them to the next stage, while the Capital One Cup is always good for goals as many clubs choose to field slightly less experienced teams.
Here are my best 3 both teams to score predictions for Tuesday night:

Doncaster Rovers v Leeds 7.45pm
Both teams to score odds- 4/6 Sky Bet
Leeds are a team I’ve placed in my both teams to score notebook at this early stage in the season, and I think this League Cup tie has all the hallmarks of a game that should be very open and attacking.
The visitors have scored and conceded 3 of their 4 games in all competitions so far (they beat Chesterfield 2-1 in the last round of this cup), just their 0-0 draw at Leicester blotting an otherwise healthy looking BTTS form book.
Doncaster defeated Rochdale 1-0 in the last round and approach this game after a 2-2 draw at the DW Stadium against Wigan on Saturday, a game they were unlucky not to take all 3 points from.
Doncaster will struggle in the Championship this season but Leeds are always vulnerable to conceding the odd goal. I predict a 2-1 Leeds win here.
Peterborough v Reading 7.45pm
Both teams to score odds- 8/15 Sky Bet
Peterborough are setting fire to League 1 at present and it would be no surprise to see them promoted back to the Championship after just 1 season away. With 4 wins from 4 in the league as well as a sauntering 5-1 victory over Colchester in the last round of this competition you just have to fancy them to score at their home ground (they’ve hit 17 goals in their last 5 games).
Reading should however offer a bit of a punch in return. Despite going down 1-0 to Blackpool at the weekend they hit 3 past Watford previously, also netting at the Reebok against Bolton as well as beating Ipswich 2-1. With the likes of Adam Le Fondre and Pavel Pogrebnyak among their striking options the Royals should have what it takes to get on the scoresheet.
I wouldn’t like to predict the outcome of this one but goals do look very likely indeed.
Basel v Ludogorets 7.45pm
Both teams to score odds- 5/6 Sky Bet
Swiss outfit Basel look home and hosed and set for the Champions League group stage after their impressive 4-2 win in the first leg in Bulgaria last week, and although it’s very unlikely Ludogorets have the ability to turn the tie on it’s head you can at least guarantee that they’ll be going hell for leather in search of vital away goals.
Basel are a seasoned Champions League side and will know exactly what they need to do, but looking at their home record in Europe they’ve conceded against the likes of Otelul Galati, Manchester United, Molde and CFR Cluj since 2010 and there’s no reason Ludogorets can’t score.
In turn Basel have failed to score in just 2 of their last 25 at home so we should be guaranteed a couple of goals here.
