Football game from England Vanarama NL North - at home Darlington 1883 play with Bradford PA.
Interesting game and interesting odds for the both teams to scored today.
We have a huge quality gap for this game and the odds for home win are low because of that - Darlington 1883 is a big favorite with home advantage and 24 points more than the team on Bradford PA, so the expectations are for easy home win.
I don't think this is such easy game for Darlington 1883. Bradford PA coming of two consecutive victories 2:1 over Altrincham and 3:1 over AFC Telford Utd with heroes there Johnson,Hill and Brooksby. Also before this for the records was with 3:4 lost on the road against Stalybridge and 1:3 against Halifax.
On the other hand Darlington 1883 coming of interesting 3:3 against Gainsborough away from home. Their team coming of streak with 8 of the latest 10 rounds Goal - Goal results. Another good reason is the previous season meeting where the winner was again Darlington 1883 over Bradford PA with 2:1 with two late goals at the second half on Hardy and Galbright. Good luck!!!

None League action for me in a Vanarama Conference league game. This game will be played on Tuesday 28th March 2017 and will kick off at 19:45 UK time. The game will be played at Moss Rose Ground, Macclesfield, Cheshire.
I’ve been watching a lot of the Vanarama Conference game this season as they’ve been aired on BT Sport. One of the teams that have surprised me this season is the visitors for the game, York City! They seem to have crumbled in recent years, they dropped from League Two to the Conference last season, now they are slipping even further down the table and find themselves in a real relegation battle now! They are currently 5 points from safety with 2 games in hand over Woking.
The home side have also been a Football league side in the past few years, they find themselves in with a chance of the play off places. They are 11 points behind 6th placed Aldershot, however, they have 4 games in hand over them, so if they win all these then they could get into a play off place. This will be a game that they will see as a “winnable” game and will set up to secure the 3 points against a low on confidence York City.
Macclesfield lost on the weekend 2-0 at home to Aldershot, prior to this defeat they went 5 games unbeaten (3 wins and 2 draws). One of the wins came against 3rd placed Tranmere, so a massive result. Macclesfield have a solid defence this season and have conceded just 39 goals in 36 league games, this is the 5th best in the league. They have managed to score a decent 49 goals too.
As I mentioned earlier in my post, York City are really struggling this season, they are in serious danger of being relegated again! They are currently 5 points adrift, so the pressure will be really on them to get some points sooner rather than later.
York City have struggled this season in-front of goal, they have managed to score just 41 goals from 38 league games, so only just as a team averaging a goal per game, this isn’t good enough for a team the size of York.
I do expect this to be a tough game for the home side, however, I do expect them to secure all 3 points here against a low on confidence York City. I think the odds of 1.85 with Marathonbet for a Macclesfield Town win is very fair, therefore, I’ll be backing this. Good luck all.
Montenegro started their qualifying path in a decent way, as the side took a point away to Romania in a 1:1 draw, they managed to defeat Kazakhstan at home and Denmark on the road, but blew up everything with a 3:2 loss away from home against Armenia in the last official match played last year. The tea now needs to get a victory in order to stand a chance of qualifying, since they are drawn in a pretty tough group.
Poland already leads the table with ten points, three more than Montenegro, while Denmark has just a point less then them and ROmanians with just two points less, undoubtelly, they will have tough time getting the second position in such a strong competition. They actually looked well against Armenians during the first halftime and had the double lead with goals from Kojasevic and Jovetic, but then completely collapsed in the second and conceded the third goal in third minute of additional time.
Defenders Marko Simic (21/0, Rostov), Vladimir Volkov (17/0, Radnicki Nis), midfielders Nemanja Nikolic (13/0, Vozdovac) and Mleden Kascelan (25/0, Tosno) won’t be playing here in comparison to previous couple of call-ups.
Poland, on the other side, started their qualifiers with a draw away from home against Khazakhstan 2:2, but then recorded three victories, two narrow one victories at home against Denmark and Armenia, but the side improved in the last competitive match previous year when they easily won over Romanians away from home with a 3:0 result. They are already three points above the current opponent and in case of a victory here they would make a giant step towards qualification to Russia.
Ball possession was shared between the opponents, but the Polish had much better chances and obviously way better quality in attack, taking the lead via Grosicki in 11th minute and sealing with two goals from Lewandowski in last phase of the game. Defender Jakub Wawrzyniak (49/1, Lechia), midfielders Grzegorz Krychowiak (44/2, PSG), Tomasz Jodlowiec (49/1, Legia) and forward Artur Sobiech (13/2, Hannover) won’t be playing in this one in comparison to previous few call-ups.
Montenegro needs to attack here and knowing that they have way bigger quality in attack than in defense, it’s logical for them to try to make their own tempo. I see plenty of goals here since only chance for Montenegro to get something here is to play more openly, at least during some phase of the game, while Polish alone have quality to score even three here.
Sweden didn’t enter the new qualifying path in a good way, as the side had a home draw against Netherlands 1:1 at the beginning, then recorded victories over Luxembourg and Bulgaria, but suffered 2:1 draw away to France in the most recent qualifying game. Even though their results were pretty much expected, it already makes this position quite difficult since the team has really strong group this time.
They are already three points behind leaders from France, which are without any doubt first favorite, being tied up at second position together with Netherlands and with only a point more than Bulgaria, which means that games like this are a must win for them. In comparison to previous squads, Swedish team will be playing here without defender Oscar Wendt (28/0, Gladbach), Martin Olsson (40/5, Swansea), forward John Guidetti (17/1, Celta). Couple of important players including Ibrahimovic, Kallstrom and goalkeeper Isaksson have retired from the national team after EURO 2016.
Belarus, on the other side, started the qualification in modest way, but it was obvious right after the draw that the team won’t stand much chances of making surprise here and that their path should be just a build up for next competitions. After four matches played, the team has two draws (against France and Luxembourg at home) and two defeats, against Netherlands and Bulgaria away from home.
Even though they started with surprising draw in front of own crowd against France, their ambitions went lower with next results especially when the side took only a point in a home game against complete outsiders from Luxembourg. Additionally, the side has scored just two goals in first four matches, continue to struggle in attack as they usually do for years and years.
In comparison to previous recent call-ups, visitors can’t count at defender Maksim Bardachow (44/2, Orenburg), midfielders Alexander Hleb (77/6, Krylia Sovetov), Sergey Krivets (38/5, Wisla Plock) and forward Sergei Kornilenko (78/17, Krylia Sovetov).
Quality is without any doubt with the home team and I expect them to prevail easier than what the odds suggest. They are without their biggest star which was a key player for many years, but the Swedish team still has enough quality to overpower the opponent with ease.
Wales are third in Group D, four points behind Martin O'Neill's Republic of Ireland, who are top, hosts are a very hard side to beat at home and haven't lost at home since September 2013, a run of nine games but for this clash they have hit by injuries with first-choice central defensive pairing Shane Duffy and Ciaran Clark ruled out, also will be unavailable Harry Arter, Wes Hoolahan, Rob Elliot, Paul McShane, Liam Kelly, David McGoldrick and Daryl Murphy all injured, add to this the suspension of Robbie Brady while Coleman is rated 50/50 and McCarthy hasn't trained this week due to a hamstring injury and it is now growing ever more unlikely that the Everton midfielder will be fit to face Wales.
Coventry are in last place and pretty much relegated with 17 points to make up with 8 games left, they only have 26 from 38 games. They also have allot of problems off the pitch and the mood within the club is very bad.
Port Vale have a bad away record but they're also in trouble currently in the bottom 4, this is a real chance for some points. They have face the top 3 in their last 5 games of the season so these next rounds are crucial they get results if they're to avoid relegation.
Port Vale have won 2 of their last 3 games going into this match. They also can score goals having scored in their last 6 games.
Coventry have won 1 of their last 22 matches and lost the last 3 without scoring a goal. Both teams have had poor seasons but Coventry are 15 points behind Vale. I don't see why they can be favourites for this game despite both have poor records, I will chance the away team to get a result at good odds.

Crystal Palace started playing better in last couple of weeks, as the team comes from a 2:0 victory away from home against West Brom two weeks ago in the last Premiership game played. It was their second consecutive victory as they previously won narrowly 1:0 at home against Middlesbrough as the side improved a lot in the defensive lineup especially.
Ball possession between them and West Bro was pretty much shared and the game itself wasn’t very attacking and interesting, but the players of Crystal Palace reacted much better and had more concrete chances created (not a lot though). They took the lead in 55th minute via Zaha, while the hosts tried to react, but the three pointer got sealed for Crystal Palace in 84th via Townsend. The team is now above the relegation zone with a point more than relegating placed Hull City and remains in a must win situation.
Home side will be playing in 4-2-3-1 formation with Benteke as central striker, plus Townsend, Puncheon and Zaha as offensive midfielders. Injured are forwards Jonathan Benteke (1/0) and Connor Wickham (8/2). Unfit for this match after injuries remain goalkeeper Steve Mandanda (9/0) and left back Pape Souare (3/0). Mathieu Flamini and Loic Remy are having some problems but should be ready for the match.
Watford suffered defeat last time out, two weeks ago when the team welcomed Southampton and lost 3:4 in one of the most interesting matches in that round. However, without any doubt the Saints were way better on the field and maybe even deserved an easier victory than what they have earned.
Players of Watford took the lead in fourth minute via Deeney, while Tadic and Redmond reverted the scoreline within the first halftime, with Okaka leveling up the result in 78th minute, but the guests were way more concrete later on and scored twice more to seal the victory via Redmond again and Gabbiadini, while Doucoure managed to reduce the deficit towards the end of the game. Watford is now near the middle of the table, with seven points more than relegating placed Hull City remaining in relaxed situation for now.
Visitors from Watford are set to play in 4-3-3 formation, with Niang and Success as wingers, plus Deeney as central striker. Visitors can’t count at injured forwards Roberto Pereyra (13/2), Mauro Zarate (3/0) and midfielder Ben Watson (4/0). Goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon (2/0) isn’t enough fit, similar to defender Christian Kabasele (10/2) and offensive midfielder Nordin Amrabat (18/0). Right back Daryl Janmaat (16/1) is doubtful for this one.
- There have been under 2.5 goals scored in 5 of Crystal Palace’s last 6 games (Premier League).
Crystal Palace showed much more improved football in previous two matches, especially reliability in the defensive lineup and I expect them to prevail here easy or hard. Watford is a solid side, but doesn’t inspire with confidence at all, especially on the road. Odds are worth a try as I don’t see the visiting side scoring with easy this time.
Championship action tomorrow night for me, the game will be played at Ashton Gate, Bristol and will be played between Bristol City and Huddersfield Town. The game will kick off at 19:45 UK time. The hosts head into the game on the back of a victory 1-0 away at Wigan Athletic, not a massive result, however, it kept them above Wigan and kept them close to Blackburn Rovers (-1 point). Bristol City started the season really well and Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham was on fire, he was scoring for fun!
I recall Bristol being very close to the top of the league at one point, however, a string of poor results has seen them slip into a relegation battle! Prior to their 1-0 away win at Wigan, Bristol last won a league game at home to Rotherham (almost relegated) 1-0. This was back on the 4th Feb. Since then, they have lost 3 games and drawn 3 games. They have been quite inconsistent lately and their league position shows this! They do have something to play for, and on a Friday night I expect their fans to get behind them. However, Huddersfield also have a lot to play for!
Huddersfield travel to Bristol for the game currently sat in 3rd in the table and just 6 points behind both Newcastle and Brighton. I know it will be tough, however, if they win here vs relegation threatened Bristol, this leaves them just 3 points behind top of the league!!! Surely this is something they must aim for?!
I’m sure every single person associated with Huddersfield would have accepted a play off place come the start of the season, however, now a play off place is almost a certainty. I believe they will now see automatic promotion as achievable! After all, the pressure will now be on promotion favourites Newcastle and Brighton.
Huddersfield have been getting some lucky results, beating teams by the odd goal, however, what they do have is a good belief and team spirit. They have some hard working players along with a good, passionate manager!
Gaffer David Wagner won manager of the month for Feb and has started March badly, however, he seems to have got his players back in the habit of winning. They head into the game on the back of 2 victories. They were both hard fought wins vs Aston Villa and Brentford, both high scoring teams, so the 2 clean sheets would have been great!
Huddersfield have a good away record of late, they haven’t lost an away game in their last 4, they have won 3 and drawn 1. The games they won were by a single goal, they beat QPR, Rotherham and Brentford. They also managed a draw vs Barnsley in a derby game. I think Huddersfield will get a win here vs Bristol, however, as Bristol have something to play for they may be happy with a draw to get them out of the bottom 3 (only on goal difference).

For me Juventus is heavy favorite at home against Porto. Juventus has a great advantage from the first game but I think they will go all the way for win tomorrow.
Porto can not compete with Juventus and I expect routinely win 1 to 2 goal difference.
In the first match Juventus was absolutely dominant and better team and the same scenario expects in tomorrow's meeting.
Juventus for this match dont have major problems with players absences and will play in the strongest possible composition.
Possible lineup Juventus: Gianluigi Buffon; Dani Alves, Leonardo Bonucci, Barzagli Andre, Alex Sandro; Sami Khedira, Miralem Pjanic, Juan Cuadrado; Mario Mandzukic, Paulo Dybala, Gonzalo Higuain
Porto absent for tomorrow's match will be defender Telles, Corona (FW) is doubtful.

Lazio come into this encounter with a good run of form behind them with a 7 match unbeaten run looking to push on and need to push on for victory to maintain their chase for for the 3rd Champions League spot in Italy. Lazio's wins in recent weeks have seen them beating Roma, Bologna, Inter, Pescara, Udinese and Empoli which are all teams on or around Torino. Lazio will feel confident that in their recent run of form they have been able to score against nearly all opposition netting in 10 out of their last 12 games. Their form has been of scoring has been spread across the board with players like Immobile, Savic, Keita and Parolo all sharing in the load. Lazio will be a bit vary taking on a Torino team who are in good scoring form, netting in 5 out of the last 7 meetings between the 2 sides.
Torino have been playing well this season and continue to be the most entertaining team in Italy. They have been in good scoring form finding 10 goals in their last 5 games. They have managed to find the back of the net in 8 out of those 9 games with 6 of their last 8 oover 2.5 match goals. Torino have been playing some exciting football with the likes of Belotti, Falque and Ljajic who have been a formidable front 3 to start off the season. Torino have also relied on their midfielders Benassi and Baselli supporting them with the goals as well. Torino's games have the highest goals per game in Serie A with 3.48 goals with a strong cause coming from the fact that they have scored in 81% of their games played this season with both teams scoring in 74% of their games.
These 2 sides have already met once this season with Torino taking that game to 2-2 draw at home; and I expect a similar scoring effort in tonight's game; so I am backing Over 2.5 goals & Both teams to score in this encounter.

PSG must be distraught and Unai Emery can already smell his firing papers getting ready come the end of the season, if they do not win the Ligue 1 title. Results however have helped them where Nice have dropped points; and victory tonight can get PSG to within just 3 points of Monaco which will come down to the final few weeks of the season. PSG will look to Edinson Cavani, Angel Di Maria and Julian Draxler who are their front 3 to deliver the goals tonight to get this team back on the winning track. Except a lot of shuffling to happen with some of the back 4 going to be changed around to give the squad some freshness and clear minds at the back. PSG have had the best defense in the division conceding just 19 goals in 28 games so far this season.
Lorient come into this game having the worst defensive record in the French Ligue 1 conceding 57 goals in 28 games played so far, which is 2 per game. Lorient have been struggling especially against some of the big sides to keep things tight at the back where they lost last week 4-1 to Marseille. They have also lost 3-0 and 4-0 to Monaco, 4-0 to Saint-Etienne along with a 5-0 loss to PSG earlier in the season. Lorient haven't had a good time of it this season and with 6 points from safety and games against PSG tonight, Lyon, Bordeaux among their games to play; it might be difficult for them to survive the drop.
PSG have won 9 straight victories in this matchup between the 2 sides and will want to replicate that form especially since they need it to lift the spirit at the club and with their fans; so I am backing them to win this game by a 2 goal margin. I am backing PSG to win on a -1.5 Asian Handicap in this encounter against Lorient.

Rotherham are pretty much relegated already, no chance of staying up and their results have really taken a turn lately. They are 0-1-8 from their last 9 league games. One draw vs struggling Blackburn at home. They lost the last 3 all by big margins, conceding 5 at Cardiff, 4 at Brentford and then a 0-2 loss vs Aston Villa last game.
Rotherham have a terrible record vs the leading teams in the league, Brighton are 2nd. Rotherham have lost all 9 games vs teams based in the top 6 this season.
Brighton lost their last 2 games so expect a reaction here as they cant afford to drop points again given Huddesfield are on their tails in 3rd. Brighton have a good away record with 8 wins this season on the road, all of those coming within the last 14 away matches.
Brighton won easily 3-0 in the reverse fixture and Chris Hughton's team will be expected to win again here, probably by a few goals given Rotherham are just losing to everyone and waiting for relegation to be confirmed.
Bilbao probably deserved to walk away with something last time out on Thursday evening away to Sevilla, but the team stood with empty hands and left the field with a 1:0 defeat. Sevilla took the lead very early, in fourteenth minute via Iborra after a penalty kick not converted by Jovetic and lowered down the tempo a little probably being satisfied with the result.
On the other side, visitors kept the ball more and had their own chances too, but the goal never came. Overall, visitors probably did deserve something more but continue to look almost harmless in attack away from home. They are now at eight position, having four points less than Europa League placed Villarreal and will need to improve in their home matches in order to chase up the biggest rivals for European exit.
Bilbao should be playing in 4-2-3-1 formation, using Williams as central striker, but also with Muniain, Garcia and Lekue as offensive midfielders. Forward Aritz Aduriz (20/8) continues to be injured, same as goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga (11/0). Also out are right full back De Marcos (15/1) and offensive player Sabin Merino (10/1). Defender Aymeric Laporte (21/1) is doubtful but could recover in time.
Malaga, on the other side, really disappointed in last two matches in LaLiga, as the team played against sides that are surely beatable but instead of taking some points, the team suffered two defeats. Their away loss against Eibar is more or less not that much of a disappointment, but their home defeat in last round against Betis surely is a bad for their morale.
Once again the showed unstable morale since they took the lead in 39th minute via Fornals and nothing seemed like they’ll suffered defeat, but once players of Betis leveled up the result in 48th minute with a goal from Martin, there was very little what Malaga did in attack. On contrary, Betis looked better on counters and reached the winning goal in 74th via Sanabria, while the hosts didn’t find a way to respond. Malaga is now only seven points above the red zone and their dreams of Europe are finished for sure.
Visitors from Malaga should also be playing in 4-2-3-1 formation, with Dias as their central striker, plus Keko, Fornals and Castro as offensive midfiedlers. Offensive midfielder Juanpi (20/2) is doubtful and could recover in time, but injured remain central defender Bakary Kone (7/0), defensvie midfielder Zdravko Kuzmanovic (4/0), midfielders Juan Carlos (17/0), Recio (9/0) and forward Youssef En-Nesyri (1/1).
- Malaga have failed to win their last 16 away matches (La Liga).
- Athletic Club are undefeated in their last 9 home matches against Malaga.
This is not the perfect season for Bilbao, but in front of own fans they still remain favorites against less than modest Malaga. Easy or difficult, home team should prevail and continue their battle for European spots.
Dortmund is far away from usual force they were previous years, but the team still should be able to reach the Champions League exit for the next season. Their bid in this edition of Champions League is hurt a bit with a narrow defeat in Portugal against Benfica 1:0 few weeks ago, but the team responded well from then on in domestic competitions.
They recorded two 3:0 victories, firstly in front of own fans against Wolfsburg, but then also on the road against Freiburg last weeekend. Sokratis brought them into the lead in 13th minute, while Aubameyang sealed the victory with two goals in the second half, in 55th and 70th minute. The side was dominating the match from first till last moment and completely deserved the victory. They are now at third position having eight points less than second placed Leipzig and maybe more important, having three points more than fifth and out of CL positions placed Hertha Berlin.
Midfielders Mario Gotze (11/1) and Sven Bender (2/0) are out due health reasons, same as other midfielder Sebastian Rode (11/1). Doubtful is defender Matthias Ginter (19/0), but with chances to recover in time.
Leverkusen, on the other side, is in similar position as their opponents since the team also plays in Champions League and also suffered defeat in the first leg (2:4 at home against Atletico Madrid) staying with almost no chances to reach the next stage. Their position in Bundesliga is worse as well, since they stand only eight at the table, having five points less than Europa League placed side Eintracht Frankfurt.
After that Champions League defeat, they had probaly even worse match as the side suffered 0:2 defeat in front of own fans against Mainz last weekend. Visitors opened up the match in the best possible way and scored two goals within first eleven minutes (Bell and Oztunali), while players of Leverkusen had no proper way to respond further on and couldn’t revert the things at all, just staying with a more of ball possession but nothing more than that.
Midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu (15/6) and defender Jonathan Tah (16/1) won’t be playing here due different reasons, while doubtful remain important offensive player Chicharito (20/10) and defender Danny da Costa (2/0), but with chances to recover on time.
Dortmund needs to get the victory here, not only to improve the morale ahead of important Champions League game, but also because of their current position at the table. Hosts are having great quality upfront and could easily destroy Leverkusen, side that is far away from a reliable one these days. Neither of the teams impressed so far in the season, but Dortmund still remains rock solid in comparison to the visitors.
After a run of really poor results in Eredivisie and exclusion from Dutch Cup, Heerenveen managed to respond with much better performance in front of own fans against Roda last weekend celebrating 3:0 victory. They were better from the first minute as the players of Roda stood really defensive minded and extremely passive but the hosts could score only once the visitors stood playing with a man less.
Defensive midfielder El Makrini got excluded in 54th, while the hosts increased their tempo and domination even further, managing to open the scoreline in 60th via Schmidt, but also to seal the victory with two more goals in last minutes of the game, via Veerman and Ghoochennejhad from a penalty kick. After this three pointer, they managed to stay inside the play-off zone, having thirty-six points earned which is just a point more than out of play-off placed Twente meaning that they need a victory here badly.
Home team should be playing in 4-3-3 formation using Larsson, Zeneli and Ghoochannejhad as forwards. Defensive midfielder Stijn Schaars (14/1) is injured, while Jeremias St Juste and Pelle van Amersfoort came back from suspension.
Go Ahead Eagles, on the other side, suffered 1:3 defeat in front of own fans against Vitesse last weekend, which was their second consecutive loss as they previously lost on the road to Roda. Even though they had a bit more of the ball possession than the players of Vitesse, they got completely outplayed on the field and deserved the defeat.
Guests took the lead in 29th minute via van Wolfswinkel, doubling up the lead at the start of the second halftime via Foor and sealing the victory in 80th minute via Rashica. Players of Go Ahead Eagles only managed to reduce the deficit in 88th via Crowley and didn’t deserve more than that. The team is now at sixteenth position at the table, having just a point less than safely placed Roda, but also just a point more than rock bottom placed Den Haag. Away from home they have 1-3-8 record and it will be really hard for them to get something here.
Visitors will be playing most likely in 4-2-3-1 formation, with Hendriks as central striker and Antonia, Crowley and Manu as offensive midfielders. They won’t be able to count at midfielder Chris David who anyway didn’t perform so far, but also at right full back Lars Lambooij (6/0) and midfielder Tom Daemen (3/0) due injuries.
- Heerenveen are undefeated in their last 12 matches against Go Ahead Eagles.
- Heerenveen have scored at least 2 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches against Go Ahead Eagles.
Heerenveen finally managed to get a victory after a run of six official matches without one and come here with a boosted morale. I don’t see plenty of chances for the visiting side not only to walk away with something, but neither to actually stay competitive for the entire game.
Manchester City had the luxury to rest over the weekend as their match with Manchester United was postponed. This means that Pep Guardiola players are well rested and will be fresher than their opponents, who had a game this weekend. The best City players are on line for the match against Huddersfield. The only injuries are Ilkay Gandogan and Gabriel Jesus. Manchester City certainly underestimate the first game against Huddersfield (finished 0:0), but now in the replay they should correct their mistakes.
Huddersfield achieved the feat, reaching the replay against Manchester City. Huddersfield has one main goal this season to qualify for the Premier League. Currently Huddersfield is at third place just 5 points from direct promotion in Premier League. Huddersfield has a lot of problems with injured players, and that in a match against a team like Manchester City can be crucial.
Interesting facts about the game:
Manchester City keep a clean sheet in 5 of their last 6 games in FA Cup.
Huddersfield keeps a clean sheet in their last 3 games in FA Cup.
The last 3 match between Manchester City and Huddersfield ended with less than 2.5 goals.
Manchester City has two losses in his last three home games in FA Cup.
Huddersfield has 4 wins in their last 5 away matches in FA Cup.
Although the statistics given above Manchester City remains a big favorite in the match and it will be a real surprise if the game did not end with a home win. I encourage you to seek even greater risk and bet on Half Time / Full Time.
Marseille did well last weekend to get a convincing victory in front of own fans against Rennes with a 2:0 result. They were slightly better in the first halftime, but only managed to break the defense of the visitors in the second part, when they increased the tempo as well. Hosts took the lead via N’Jie in 59th minute, while Thauvin doubled up the lead five minutes later.
Hosts got the victory easily, since the players of Rennes didn’t threaten them much towards the end of the game. Marseille did improve in recent weeks, but it usually goes for their matches in front of own fans, while it will be hard for them to reach the European exit unless they improve significantly away from home. Currently they are at seventh position having four points less than fourth placed Lyon sitting on Europa League position.
Marseille is set to play in quite offensive 4-3-3 formation, using Payer, Thauvin and N’Jie most likely as forwards. Rod Fanni and Hiroki Sakai are both available after suspension. Left back Henri Bedimo (9/0) is doubtful for this one, while injured remain defensive Tomas Hubocan (12/0), midfielders Bouna Sarr (21/0), Abou Diaby (2/0) and important forward Bafetimbi Gomis (24/16).
PSG, on the other side, comes from a setback match last time out in Ligue 1, since the the team took only a point in a home match against Toulouse which ended as a goalless game. Players of PSG had much more of the ball possession and much more chances created surely deserving a victory as well, but the goal never came.
This draw broke their run of five victories including impressive 4:0 win over Barcelone few days earlier in Champions League, as the team continues to be now at third position with six points less than first placed Monaco and three less than second placed Nice. Since both of their rivals have recorded victories in this round, PSG remains in a must win situation as well.
Visitors from Paris are set to play in 4-3-3 formation as well, with Draxler and Maria on the wings, plus Cavani as central striker. Defensive midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak (10/0) is not fit enough to play, while doubtful remain few players for this one, making lineup a bit unknown for the match. These players are left back Layvin Kurzawa (14/2), central defender Thiago Silva (19/3), midfielders Thiago Motta (24/0), Marco Verratti (18/2) and forward Angel Di Maria (20/2), with some of them surely being involved in the match.
- Marseille have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 8 home matches against PSG.
I expect the match to be very open in one of biggest matches in France. Marseille is far away from a naive side in attack, but they remain shaky in the defense. PSG will be going for a victory and I definitely see both teams scoring here, as well being scored more than three goals in the match. Odds are worth a shot in my eyes.
Guingamp suffered a bit heavy defeat last time out on Sunday evening as the team visited Bordeaux and didn’t have many chances to walk away in something in convincing victory of the home team with a 3:0 result. They had their chances as well, but the hosts were simply way more resilient in attack and took the lead in 13th minute with a goal from kamano, to double up the result in 43rd via Pallois.
Guests even stood playing with a man less since 59th minute when their defender Martins-Pereira received second yellow card which made the job even more easier for the players of Bordeaux who sealed the victory with a third goal from Laborde in 71st minute. It was fourth defeat in last five matches in Ligue 1 for Guingamp, as the team continues to stand in the middle of the table, now at ninth position with nine points less than Europa League placed Lyon and seven more than relegating worried sides, surely not being in comfortable position for now.
Defender Jonathan Martins-Pereira (9/0) is suspended for this one, while injured remain goalkeeper Romain Salin (1/0), defender Jeremy Sorbon (23/1), Fernando Marcal (22/0) and forward Sloan Privat (13/2).
Monaco, on hte other side suffered slight setback last time out in Ligue 1, as the team took only a point last Friday evening away to Bastia in a 1:1 draw. Hosts took the lead in 19th minute via Diallo, while Monaco replied in the second halftime via Silva early, but couldn’t revert the scoreline completely.
They remained having much more of the ball possession, but weren’t that concrete in attack and paid the price for it. However, it must be said that this match was few days before their Champions League clash away to Manchester City which they lost with 5:3 result, so no doubt that their focus was somehow off from the domestic duty.The team is still first at the table, having three points more than PSG and Nice, so this match remains a must win one for them. Midfielder Gabriel Boschilia (11/5) remains injured for the visiting side.
After two quite negative results, I have no doubts that Monaco will be going for a victory here from the first moment. Guingamp also knows that they can’t wait and defend to see what happens, so my first betting option will be over goals for this one, most likely with both teams scoring during the process.
Las Palmas suffered three consecutive defeats now in LaLiga, as the team comes from a 2:1 narrow loss away to Malaga last Monday evening. However, the things start nicely at first, taking the lead in 19th minute via Lemos, but couldn’t keep the lead even during the first halftime. Hosts quickly equalized in 28th minute with a goal from Fornalis, while they reverted the scoreline via Charles few minutes later.
Visitors from Las Palmas had the initiative in the second halftime and much more of the ball possession, while they couldn’t change the scoreline even though they had a man more since 70th minute when home side player Rodriguez received the red card. The team is now at 12th position, having eleven points less than Europa League placed Villarreal, but also with twelve points more than relegating placed Gijon, which surely leaves the side with a possibility of a bit more relaxed approach in next weeks.
Defender Michel Macedo (8/0) is injured, same as midfielder Angel Montoro (12/0). Doubtful for this match are forward Marko Livaja (19/4) and midfielder Figueroa Cabrera Momo (15/3) but with chances to play.
Real Sociedad, on the other side, also comes from a negative result, since the team suffered narrow 1:0 defeat in front of own fans against Villarreal. However, it must be said that the players of Real Sociedad had much more of the ball possession and actually more chances created, but the visiting side somehow looked more concrete in chances even though having less of it.
Only goal was scored in fourth minute of additional time in the game via Castillejo, in a bit maybe undeserved victory for Villarreal – but must be said that Sociedad is the only one to blame for being less effective than usually. This defeat broke a mini streak of two victories for Sociedad, as the team remains at fifth position for the moment – being four points behind Champions League placed Atletico Madrid and six point ahead of out of European places ranked Eibar. Defender Carlos Martinez (10/0) and forward Da Silva Willian Jose (20/9) are injured for this one.
I expect this match to be even more open than what the bookmakers suggest. Las Palmas needs to respond after three consecutive defeats, similar to Sociedad that is fighting for the Champions League exit. They both will seek for a three pointer, something that should grant us and attacking game, while their defensive lineups anyway weren’t reliable parts of the team so far.
Ajax will host Legia Warszawa at home in the Amsterdam ArenA for the return of the Europa League Play-offs. First game between these two clubs ended in 0-0, although we had to say that Ajax scored a goal but the referees didn't saw it correct. First game wasn't really nice to watch, Legia tried to stop Ajax from scoring a goal and Ajax had some trouble to break through the wall of Legia defenders.
Ajax player Kenny Tete received a red card in this game so he will be suspended. Other players who won't play from Ajax side are Cerny, Clement, de Ligt and Sinkgraven. Only Sinkgraven was actually a 'real Ajax 1' player this season. Others played most of the time with Jong Ajax. Ajax could easily replace Tete with for example Riedewald, one of the talented youngsters from Ajax.
In 2015, these two clubs already met eachother in the same stage of the Europa League. At home, Ajax beat Legia with 1-0 and the return ended in a 0-3 victory for Ajax. From my opinion, Ajax is a better team as they were 2 years ago. Although they don't play very good in all of their games, somehow they know to win it.
This weekend Ajax played a tough away-game against Vitesse. They managed to win this game thanks to a goal of Davy Klaassen, who also missed a penalty. Legia lost at home from number 15 (out of 16) of the Polish League with 1-3.
Ajax at home, supported by thousands of spectators will try to break through the Legia wall. Think Legia will defend and try to score from a counter, while Ajax will put a lot of pressure on the Legia deffence. At the end I think Ajax got a lot more individual quality and will win against Legia.
|Ajax -0.75 AH||Unibet||1.59||8||Pending|
Another Championship game for me tomorrow night in a clash that will see Bristol City host Fulham. The clash will be played at Ashton Gate and will kick off at 20:00.
The hosts head into the clash on the back of a 2-1 against Leeds, they didn’t really look in the game and Leeds seemed to control this from start to finish, Bristol were lucky as they scored in the 96th minute to narrow the scoreline to just 1.
Bristol City started the season so well, however, they seem to have slipped down the table lately and currently find themselves just above the relegation zone by 2 points. Their star striker Tammy Abraham seems to have slowed down on the goals of late too, this seems to be where City are struggling.
Bristol did win their last home fixture, however, this was against bottom club Rotherham United. They didn’t fully deserve the victory either, I think a draw in the game would have been a fair result.
Fulham are still pushing for a play off place, they currently lie in 8th place, just 9 points from Sheffield Wednesday, so they know that they will need to start and win games if they are to stand any chance of getting anywhere this season.
Their league form has been ok, they head into the game on the back of two straight victories in the league. They have beat Wigan and Forest, both games finished 3-2 in favour of Fulham. They don’t seem too solid at the back, however, they are openly scoring goals and that will no doubt boost confidence throughout the team.
I know their last game ended in a 3-0 defeat, however, this was against Spurs who are flying high in the Premier League. So no real shame in that. A Harry Kane treble secured progression for Spurs.
I think that Fulham definitely have a better squad and with that in mind I think they will really see this as a game they can get a win from, therefore, I’ll be backing Fulham +0 AH at a price of 1.74 with Betvictor. The only reason I haven’t gone for a straight win is the fact that Fulham are away from home, this will just pretect the draw.
Good luck all.
Also allot is down to their home record this season, Wednesday have won 11/15 of their home games so far, a very impressive return. They have won the last 3 and 6-1-0 further back from the last 7 home matches.
Wednesday also paid out 10 million to sign Jordan Rhodes from Middlesborough in January, a sign of intent to get promoted. He is a top striker at this level.
Brentford have a poor away record and have lost 4 of their last 5 away matches. Overall they have suffered 9 away losses this season, their defence is also one of the worst in the division on the road.
Montpellier comes from one of their better performances this season, as the team managed to get a victory over Nancy last weekend away from home in quite a convincing style with a 3:0 result. Guests took the double lead already after twenty minutes of play, as Mbenza opened the lead in tenth, while Mounie scored second in 19th minute.
Mbenza scored his second goal in 60th minute to seal the victory, while the players of Nancy also had their share of chances and ball possession, but the guests looked as a much more mature side and once they had the lead, they left a bit more of ball possession to their opponents and were waiting for their chance on counter attacks. Montpellier is now at eleventh position, having just four points more than relegating worried sides and remain in a must win situation.
Home team should be playing in 4-2-3-1 formation with Mounie as central striker. Sessegnon, Boudebouz and Mbenza should be set as offensive midfielders. Right defender Mathieu Deplagne (16/0) is suspended, while injured are goalkeeper Geoffrey Jourdren (12/0), midfielders Jonathan Ikone (9/0), Souleymane Camara (16/1), Joris Marveaux (7/0) and offensive midfielder/forward Casimir Ninga (9/3). Central defender Daniel Congre (14/1) is doutbful but could be involved.
St Etienne, on the other side, also comes from an impressive performance last weekend when the team welcomed Lorient and impressed in a 4:0 victory last Saturday evening. Similar to players of Montpellier in their game, St Etienne took the double lead after twenty minute with goals from Perrin in 18th and Veretout in 20th minute, continuing to dominate the game till the end.
Their ball possession was much bigger, while the team sealed the victory with two more goals in the second halftime, via Hamouma in 58th and Jorginho during the additional time. St Etienne remained fourth at the table, having just a point less than Europa League placed Lyon and they need points badly here. During the midweek, the side suffered 3:0 defeat in Europa League on the road to Manchester United and probably have finished this year’s competition.
St Etienne is set to play also in 4-2-3-1 formation, using Beric as their number nine and Jorginho, Corgnet and Monnet-Paquet as offensive midfielders. Forward Oussama Tannane (16/1) is injured, same as other striker Alexander Soderlund (17/3). Left defender Cheikh M’Bengue (12/0) is not fit enough yet.
- Montpellier have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 3 matches against Saint-Etienne.
St Etienne is probably a bit more quality side, surely having more than few better individuals, but with Montpellier coming in a good momentum – hosts have every reason to feel as favorites, at least slight. I definitely see them having some chance here, but St Etienne should also be able to respond well after their defeat in England. Both teams to score seems like such a reasonable bet.
Zulte Waregem couldn’t do much more last time out previous weekend when the team suffered 4:2 defeat away to Anderlecht, but it must be said that the team showed quite good fighting spirit and were competitive for the most of the game.
They even took the lead first, in second minute via Leye, but the hosts reverted the scoreline inside the first halftime via Hanni and Bruno, while Tielemans increased their lead at the start of second. Leye reduced the deficit from a penalty kick in 53rd, while Chipchiu sealed the victory for Anderlecht in last moments of the game. Waregem is now at third position, having eight less than Club Brugge and five less than Anderlecht being in a must win situation here. Home team is missing defenders Davy De Fauw (24/3) and Timothy Derijck (21/6) for this one due injuries.
St Truiden, on the other side, comes from yet another defeat, this time in front of own fans with a 0:3 result against Genk last weekend. Their visitors were way more concrete and stood better on the field for the entire game completely deserving the three pointer.
Pozuelo, Samata and Malinovsky scored three goals in last eight minutes of the first halftime, as the players of Genk continued being better and could have scored a goal or two more. It was second consecutive defeat for them, as St Truiden now stands at 12th position thats far away from play-off zone, but also eight points below the rock bottom placed Mouscron. Guests won’t be able to count at defenders Jorge Pulido (13/2), Stef Peeters (25/3), Brandon Mechele (5/1) and midfielder Fabien Tchenkoua (14/0) due injuries.
Hosts are missing two defenders, but even so I rate them as completely favorites ahead of this one. Visitors are not in a really good shape and away from home they should be able to match way more reliable opponent.
Lugo is now having three matches without defeat and surely that their point away from home against Sevilla B last weekend represents a decent outcome, however the team could have earned much more despite being under dogs during the match. Visitors took the lead first, in 66th minute with a goal from Miquel and looked decent on the field, however due to lack of concentration towards the end of the match they conceded the equalizer in first minute of additional tie via Gual.
Overall, it was quite a defensive game and it’s a pity that Lugo lost two points since the hosts scored a goal out of rare chance during the game. Lugo is now at seventh position, having thirty-six points earned so far which is two less than teams inside the play-off zone. This means that the team needs to record a victory here, especially since they are known for way better performances in front of their own crowd (the team has 23 points earned in front of own fans in comparison to only 13 on the road). Left winger Adria Carmona (3/0) is injured for this one.
Elche took only a point in a home match against UCAM Murcia last weekend, almost with the same scenario as Lugo did in a 1:1 draw. Players of Elche took the lead in eight minute already from a penalty kick taken by Nino, remaining overall better on the field and with a bit more of ball possession.
UCAM Murcia looked a bit more defensive, however they risked more towards the end of the match and got the equalizing goal in third minute of additional time from a penalty kick taken by Jona. Same as Lugo’s game, this match was almost a bit more defensive one and without much of interesting moments. After this match, Elche remains in the middle of the table with thirty-one point, as they remain seven points behind play-off placed sides, but also with just four more than relegating placed Cordoba, meaning that their path in the season is yet to be determined.
Elche will miss defensive midfielder Mandi (2/0), central midfielder Javier Matilla (14/2) and forward Pedro (19/1) due injuries.
Elche prefers a bit more offensive approach away from home and that’s what we should see here as well. Lugo will surely be attacking and trying to get the three pointer, but their determination and reliability is far away from a perfect one. I expect both teams to be way more concrete than last weekend and my first choice remains both teams to score.
Athletic Bilbao had many obstacles in previous round of LaLiga last weekend on Saturday evening, but the team still managed to overcome Deportivo La Coruna with a 2:1 result. However, the things didn’t start well for the team as the players of Deportivo took the lead in 42nd minute via Colak, but the hosts reverted the scoreline in last twenty minute of the match via Munian in 71st and Aduriz just before the full time whistle.
It was good to see them bouncing back after a defeat away to Barcelona, as Bilbao now stands eight at the table, having just a point less than Europa League placed Villarreal which is surely their target. For many seasons the team plays much better in front of own fans and there’s no doubt that they will aim to record convincing victory here in order to keep their chances high in front of the second leg.
Home team will be missing goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga (11/0) and forward Sabin Merino (9/1).
APOEL comes from a narrow victory taken last Saturday evening away from home against Karmiotissa with a 1:0 result. Only goal was scored in fourth minute via Bertoglio, as the players of APOEL remained being better on the field, but at the same time lowering down the tempo and being satisfied with the narrow lead.
After this victory which saw the team increasing their undefeated run in domestic competitions to fifteen matches, APOEL kept the first position at the table having five points more than second placed AEL Limassol. The team is pretty much dominant in the domestic league and will probably win the title again, while their big desire remains success in Europe which the team lacks for sure.
Visitors from Cyprus will miss midfielder Andrea Orlandi (9/0) who is more of a long term absentee, while they have no fresh injury worries ahead of this one. Central defender Inaki Astiz (18/2) should be unavailable for this one.
There is surely big quality difference between these two sides and I expect team from Spain to justify that. They should be able to record convincing victory that will give them much easier second leg away to Cyprus.
Real Madrid comes from a 3:1 victory away from home against Osasuna last weekend in LaLiga match. It must be said that the game was probably more equal than what was expected, since the players of Real had more of the ball possession, but Osasuna was threatening as well, surely more than what the players of Real wanted them to.
Still, visitors took the lead in 24th minute with a goal from Ronaldo but Leon replied just nine minutes later. Once Real upped their tempo in the second halftime and reached the victory thanks to goals from Isco in 62nd and Lucas in third minute of additional time, overall maybe a bit more difficult than what was expected. The team is now at first position with one point more than Barcelona but has played two matches less which gives them really strong advantage.
Real Madrid should be playing in 4-3-3 formation, using Ronaldo, Benzema and Vazquez as forwards. Important forward Gareth Bale (11/5) has returned to training sessions after two months pause, but the game comes too soon for him.
Napoli, on the other side recorded quite easy and comfortable victory at home over Genoa with a 2:0 result. Players of Napoli were way better and had the domination over the opponent but only scored goals once they increased the tempo in the second halftime.
Goals came via Zielinski in 50th minute and Giaccherini in 68th, as the hosts stood completely satisfied with the result. This was eighteen match in a row without a defeat for Napoli in all competitoins, as the team has two consecutive victories and seven out of last eight matches. Napoli is now third at the table in Serie A having nine points less than leaders from Juventus and just two less than Roma, surely wanting to get the direct ticket for the next season’s Champions League.
Visitors from Italy will also be playing in 4-3-3 formation, with Callejon, Mertens and Ingisne in attack. Central defender Lorenzo Tonelli (3/2) is only injury absentee for the visiting side.
- Real Madrid have scored at least 2 goals in their last 6 matches (UEFA Champions League).
- Real Madrid are undefeated in their last 10 matches (UEFA Champions League).
Napoli is in a fine form, but I rate home ground and experience factor much more important in this one. Real knows how to answer in a proper way when it is needed the most and their victory and almost to secure the progress to the next stage wouldn’t be surprising at all for me.
Another Championship game for me and one that will be played at Craven Cottage. The game will kick off at 19:45 and will be played between Fulham and Nottingham Forest.
The home side currently lie just outside the play off places in 9th, they are just 6 points away from 6th placed Sheffield Wednesday. The home side have been in good form of late and will know that they need to take advantage of their remaining home games. They will need to put a good run together sooner rather than later if they are to stand any chance of getting into the play off places!
It’s more Fulham’s home form that stands out to me, they head into tomorrows clash with Forest after winning their last 3 home games, these wins were against Premiership side Hull City as they beat them 4-1 in the cup to set up a clash with Tottenham on the weekend! They also beat Barnsley 2-0 and on the weekend just gone they managed a remarkable 3-2 victory against Wigan! They left it late to get all 3 points as they found themselves 2-1 down at half time, however, a 94th minute goal from Kebano secured a vital win for Fulham and I have no doubt this will give the whole squad a massive boost of confidence!
Not only the win on the weekend stands out as a confidence booster, also the fact they are playing at home on the weekend also when they welcome premiership title challenges Spurs to Craven Cottage! This clash to the players will mean that they have to fight for their place to play against one of the best teams in the country, if I were the Fulham manager I’d let my team know that if they perform they almost guarantee their place in the side vs Spurs!
The visitors have had another poor season by their standards, Forest seem to be a club on the down! They’ve sold a couple of star players in recent weeks and also don’t seem to have spent as much as they have available.
The one thing they do have is Brit Assombalonga seems to have been scoring goals again, however, if he stays fit for the remainder of the season I’d expect him to be snapped up. He’s a great striker and is capable of playing in the Premier League for sure.
Forest have a poor run of away games recently, they head into this clash having not won an away game since they beat Barnsley 5-2 at Oakwell, this game was played on 25th Nov 2016!! Since then Forest have lost 6 and drawn 1 away from home. The draw they managed was a 0-0 draw vs Birmingham.
Like my other prediction for tomorrow, I see some value in a Fulham win here and I think the price of 1.62 with BetVictor offers good value. Good luck all.
Hannover suffered quite ugly defeat last weekend as the team lost 4:1 away from home against Greuther Furth and surely have weakend their chances in the promotional race. Players of Furth had a great game almost out of nowhere looking at their form, while the visitors simply didn’t have their day.
Hosts made a strong start into the match and had the double lead within five minutes in the first part of the halftime thanks to goals from Dursun and Franke, while Dursun again and Berisha sealed their victory with goals in 64th and 67th minute. Only thing the visitors were able to do is to reduce the deficit in 87th via Prib.The team is now at third position having just a point less than second placed Braunschweig, position that will be going directly to Bundesliga and having same number of points as fourth placed Union Berlin, therefore, remaining in a must win situation. During the midweek, side suffered 1:2 defeat at home in DFB Pokal game against Eintracht Frankfurt using rotated squad.
Central defender Timo Hubers (no performance so far), defensive midfielder and team captain Manuel Schmiedebach (13/0) are injured, as well as offensive midfielder Mike Steven Bahre (2/0) and forward Charlison Benschop (also no performance so far).
Bochum, on the other side, didn’t manage to get a better result but a 1:1 draw in front of own crowd against Karlsruher last weekend. They had more of ball possession, but the match wasn’t that interesting with both teams having obviously problems in midfield and with creativity.
Still, Mugosa brought the visiting side into the lead in 74th minute, while the hosts managed to reply late in the game with equalizer from Wurtz. Bochum now remained without a victory in last three, as they keep the position safe, outside of the relegation zone having now six points less than three last teams on the table. Away from home they are close to terrible 1-3-6 record and can’t hope for much in this one.
Guests can’t count at injured Pawel Dawidowicz (10/0), as well as left back Timo Perthel (14/0), offensive midfielder Kevin Stoger (7/1) and forward Thomas Eisfeld (10/1).
Hannover needs to respond now with much better performance and they couldn’t wish for much better opponent for tonight’s game. Home teams is looking way more serious in front of own fans than the players of Bochum did during the season overall, so I have no doubts that the home team should record rather easy victory in this one.
Wolfsburg failed to build up on their victory at home against Hamburger SV in the first match after the re-start of the season, as the team suffered defeats at home against Augsburg, but also on the road last weekend when the team visited Koln and stood defeats with a narrow 1:0 result.
It was one of least interesting matches of the round as the sides shared ball possession, but were very limited in offensive way and the game itself didn’t have much of entertaining moments. Only goal came in 81st minute via penalty kick taken by Modeste, with the guests having no clue how to respond. Wolfsburg now stands at fourteenth position having just three points more than play-out placed Hamburger SV and needs to improve badly.
Central defender Jeffrey Bruma (18/1) is suspended now, while injured are midfielders Christian Trasch (6/0) and Justin Mobus (1/0). Doubtful is central midfielder Josuha Guilavogui (9/0). They are set to play in 3-5-1-1 formation with Gomez as central striker and Malli as offensive midfielder.
Hoffenheim responded well after their first defeat in the season away to Leipzig week earlier, as the team comes from a very convincing 4:0 home victory against Mainz last weekend. Uth brought Hoffenheim into the lead already in fifth minute, while the hosts remained better for the most of the game.
They showed great domination in ball possession during the match, but also in efficiency in last ten minutes when they sealed the victory thanks to two goals from Szalai and Terrazzino. After this victory Hoffenheim continues sharing the fourth position with Dortmund, being also just a point below third placed Eintracht Frankfurt and remaining in a must win situation.
Guests are set to play in 3-5-2 formation with Uth and Kramaric as forwards. Forward Sandro Wagner (17/10) is suspended, while injured remain central defender Fabian Schar (6/0) and midfielders Lukas Rupp (11/2), Jeremy Toljan (11/1) and Philipp Ochs (3/0). Their manager Julian Nagelsmann has no reason to change much here.
- Wolfsburg have won their last 3 home matches against Hoffenheim.
Wolfsburg is going nowhere with their form, especially in attack. As they come from a midweek Cup game, I don’t see them being fully able to respond here against in-form visitors which are showing so much more during all season long.
Guingamp suffered yet another defeat in Ligue 1, third in a row, as the team comes from a 2:0 loss away from home against Marseille last Wednesday evening. Hosts were better, no doubt about it, as they celebrated deserved victory with a goal in each halftime, in first via Gomis and in second via newly signed Payet.
Visitors from Guingamp, on the other side, did very little in attack only having couple of chances, being pretty limited to a defensive role only. After a good start in the season, Guingamp now has no victory in last six matches in Ligue 1, as the side slipped down to ninth position at the table, having just six more points than relegating worried sides. Since they earn much more points in front of own audience, there’s no doubt that they are fired up to bounce back with a positive performance here and to make a surprise.
Home team is set to play in 4-3-3 formation using Benezet, Briand and Salibur as forwards. Right back and sometimes central defender Benjamin Angoua (7/0) is injured, same as forward Sloan Privat (13/2). Doubtful remains left back Reynald Lemaitre who anyway didn’t perform so far in the season.
Lyon, on the other side, broke a run of three defeats in official matches, two in French Ligue 1, as the team comes from a improvement in performance and completely deserved 4:0 victory in front of their own fans against Nancy on Wednesday evening. It was quite easy match for the players of Lyon once they upped the tempo and took the double lead towards the end of the first halftime via Valbuena and Fekir, while Lacazette from a penalty kick and Depay sealed the final result in the second halftime.
Lyon was way better side and made players of Nancy playing very defensively, as the visitors did very little in offense overall. Lyon is now at fourth position, having already fifteen points less than league leaders and title chaser, while their objective target is to reach the European exit and hold the fourth place till the end, being close to a must win situation here, especially in order to boost their morale.
Visitors from Lyon will be playing in 4-2-3-1 formation, using Lacazette as their number nine, but also Cornet, Fekir and Depay as offensive midfielders. Central defender Nicolas N’Koulou (11/0) is not fit enough, probably as well as other central back, Mouctar Diakhaby (15/1). Midfielder Corentin Tolisso (21/5) is absent, while injured remain to be right back Rafael (23/0) and midfielder Mathieu Valbuena (18/6).
- Guingamp have seen over 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches against Lyon.
Guinguamp is now in a really poor form and the team needs to answer with a more positive performance for once in order to avoid further complications towards the end of the table. Lyon, on other side, comes from a morale boosting performance, but are having plenty of problems when playing on the road. I see Guingamp here more open than usually, something that should make the game very attacking from both sides.
Bordeaux are 6th with 36 points. In the last ten competitive games, they lost only once - against PSG in the League Cup semifinal 4:1. In the last five league games they collected 13 points, putting up a goal difference 8:1. Last time out they thrashed Caen on the road 4:0. That win came as a surprise considering Caen`s peformances at home, even though Bordeaux have been in good form lately. They looked good in all aspects of play, limiting Caen to only one shot at goal. They will be without injured Contento, Lewczuk, Toure and Traore.
PSG are 2nd with 52 points, three less than leading Monaco. They are unbeaten in the last ten competitive games, winning nine of them. Their away form has also been good lately, with them winning last six games, conceding only two times in process. In the last game they defeated Lille at home 2:1. PSG were the better team since the beginning, and they capitalized on their pressure in 70th minute when Cavani gave hosts the lead. In 86th minute De Preville equalized after mistake by Areola, and when it seems like that will be the final result, Lucas scored in 92nd minute and brought PSG all three points. For this game they will be without Meunier, Pastore, Veratti and Trapp - all injured.
PSG are coming into this game as clear favourites, but it shouldn`t be easy for them. They beat Bordeaux at their ground couple of weeks ago, pretty convincingly 4:1. But this time they are coming after unconvincing victory against Lille at home, while Bordeaux are coming after their most convincing victory of the season. Bordeaux showed great attacking performance in the last game, and should be able to find a net against PSG who kept only one clean sheet in the last five competitive games. Also, despite Bordeaux`s good defensive record of late, PSG`s attack should be too much to stop. Last time these two met I picked both teams to score, and I will do that again here. I think it is a sensible choice considering everything, and the odds are pretty good.

HJK welcomes Norrkoping in their second match of the Volkswagen Stockholm Cup. The match is played @ the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, Hammarby`s home pitch. This is a friendly tournament and is used as a preparation for the upcoming national cup matches starting shortly. The league for both teams starts in april.
HJK played two Finish cup matches and won over Honka 3:2 and Gnistan 4:0. They also played against the hosts Hammarby and won by 3:2. The hosts dominated in first half but HJK woke up in second and deserved to win the game. They showed a nice passing football with plenty of chances created and the new players showed their potential. HJK has made an effort to bring in some experience players in the off season but also some young forces.
Norrkoping played 3 friendlies and have shown some huge defensive frailities but also the will to go forward in each match. They beat Frej with 6:1 but also lost to Mattersburg 3:1 and Shakhtar 6:1. Norrkoping is well known as a very attacking team and show that in friendlies as well. From their last 11 friendlies 9 went over 3.5 goals or more.
HJK has shown they can compete against the Swedish teams and I see them scoring a couple of goals. Over 3 goals is the bet.
