Dortmund vs Anderlecht – 09.12.2014

Europe: Champions League – Dortmund vs Anderlecht
DortmundBorussia Dortmund and Anderlecht will face each other Tuesday evening in the 6th fixture of Uefa Champions League group stage. The kick-off will be at 19:45 and there are no doubts about the team that starts with first chance. Borussia Dortmund are leading the Group D, with 12 points out of 15 in their account and with the best goal difference of the group, 13-3.

They are already qualified in the next round and they need at least one point against Anderlecht to secure the first place ahead of Arsenal. Dortmund are coming after a good victory, 1-0 against Hoffenheim, that one being the third one in a row in front of their own fans after 1-0 with Gladbach and 4-1 with Galatasaray.

Anderlecht had no real chance in the first leg against Borussia Dortmund, losing 0-3 at home. The Jupiler League champions are 100% qualified in the Europa League last 32 round so they will come here in vacation. With five points and a 7-9 goal difference, the belgians have four points more than Galatasaray and five less than Arsenal so their position (3rd) will remain the same after this match.

Prediction: 1 @ 1.35
We decided to not risk very much and we chose to be on Dortmund’s victory, altough the odds are not very attractive right now. Dortmund confirmer their superiority in the first match too and they need a good result here after a difficult time.

 

Barcelona vs Espanyol – 07.12.2014

Spain: Primera Division – Barcelona vs Espanyol
BarcelonaBarcelona and Espanyol will be face to face in the most exciting game of this weekend in Spain Primera Division. The match is part of the 14th fixture and there are no doubts about the team that has first chance in winning all three points.Barcelona have odds under 1.10 right now for a victory.They have only one option here, otherwise they could lose the contact with Real Madrid.

The home side has 31 points and a 31-6 goal difference, being on the second place in La Liga. Messi & co have the best defence in the league by far and the second attack. They recorded five wins and one defeat at Camp Nou this campaign.

Espanyol have not impressed us this season and we can say that they dissapointed, proof that after 13 fixtures they are only on the 12th position in Primera Division. The guests won 14 points out of 39 and their negative goal difference, 14-17, is not a thing that they can be proud of. More than that, Espanyol was the worst away team this season, winning only two points in six away games, conceding almost two goals per match.

Barcelona struggled last season against their local rivals, proof that they had some problems but in the end they won all six points after two meetings, 1-0 both times. Espanyol’s last victory here was in 2009, 2-1 in Primera Division.

Prediction: Barcelona -2.0 AH @ 1.43
The home team is a very strong one in front of the own fans and we expect Barca to win this game without any problems. If we will see a victory by a margin of exactly two goals, our money will be refunded.

 

Shakhtar Donetsk vs H. Uzhhorod – 05.12.2014

Ukraine:  Premier League – Shakhtar Donetsk vs H. Uzhhorod
Shakhtar DonetskShakhtar Donetsk and Hoverla Uzhhorod will be face to face Friday evening from 19:00, UK Time. This weekend in Ukraine will be played the matches from 10th fixture, postponed few weeks ago. There are no doubts about the better side at this game.

Shakhtar Donetsk are not the biggest favorites in the title race anymore. Lucescu’s team is only on the second place in Ukraine, with 28 points and a 28-7 goal difference, having five points less than Dinamo Kiev, the team that is leading right now. Shakhtar recorded four victories, one draw and one defeat in six home games this campaign.

Hoverla Uzhhorod could not expect too many things from a game like this one, considering that they are fighting to avoid the relegation. Guests have only one victory this season in Ukraine Premier League, 1-0 against Metalurg Donetsk one month ago. With nine points and a bad goal difference of 8-16, the away team is on the 11th place, six points over the relegation zone.

Shakhtar Donetsk had no problems in the last meetings with Hoverla, proof that the last six meetings, since 2010, were won by Shakhtar, 17-3 on aggregate.

Prediction: 1/1 @ 1.50
Bet365 offers the best odds for this bet at the moment. We expect Shakhtar to control the whole game, both on the pitch and on the scoreboard, from the first minute until the last one.

 

Sampdoria vs Napoli – 01.12.2014

Italy: Serie A – Sampdoria vs Napoli
Sampdoria vs NapoliSampdoria and Napoli will face to face in the last game of the 13th fixture in Serie A. It is scheduled Monday evening at 20:00, and both teams need a victory to keep fighting for a Champions League place. It’s still a long way until that point.

The home team is one of the most surprising this season in Serie a, proof that after 12 fixtures Sampdoria are on the 4th place in Italy, with 21 points and a good goal difference, 15-9. Sampdoria have one of the best defences in the league, with nine goals conceded, only Roma and Juventus being better at this point.

Napoli are coming after five fixtures without defeat, ticking three wins and two draws. Napoli have 22 points in their account and a good goal difference, 23-15, having the second best attack in the league. When it comes about away games, Napoli recorded three victories, two draws and one defeat, being on the third place at this point, only Juventus and Genoa being better.

Napoli confirmed their superiority in the last season, winning both games against Sampdoria, 2-0 at home and 5-2 away. Sampdoria’s last victory against Napoli was in May 2010, 1-0 here.

Prediction: X2 @ 1.35
We expect Napoli to get a good result here, being in a better form right now. More than that, the guests showed us a good display if we talk about away games, while Sampdoria is not in the best form, with only one victory in the last five fixtures.

 

Anderlecht vs Club Brugge – 30.11.2014

Belgium: Jupiler League – Anderlecht vs Club Brugge
anderlechtThe most exciting game of this weekend in Belgium Jupiler League will take place Sunday at 13:30, UK Time and it will put face to face Anderlecht and Club Brugge, the strongest teams in the league and the favorites in the title race.

Anderlecht are coming after a bad result last round, losing 1-3 against Charleroi away. They lost the leading position in Jupiler League too, being on the second place at the moment, with 30 points and a good goal difference, 26-18. Anderlecht recorded only four home victories, two draws and one defeat in seven games this campaign in the domestic league.

Club Brugge will try to continue their excellent form. The guest won three games in the last four fixtures, fighting for the title this campaign. They have 31 points and the best goal difference in the league, with 37 goals scored and 16 conceded, having the best attack by far. Club Brugge won 13 points out of 24 away, being on the third place from this point of view in Belgium Jupiler League.

We have already seen a game between these two sides this season. To be more precise, in August Brugge drew against Anderlecht in front of their own fans, 2-2, after last season Anderlecht won 3/4 games against Club Brugge.

Prediction: Both teams to score @ 1.57
Anderlecht and Club Brugge have good attack, especially the guests, with more than 2 goals scored per game. We expect a spectacular game, with goals from both sides, like three months ago.

 

Bordeaux vs Lille – 30.11.2014

France: Ligue 1 – Bordeaux vs Lille
Bordeaux vs LilleThe first game scheduled this Sunday in France Ligue 1 will put Bordeaux face to face with Lille, in the 15th fixture of this campaign. The first whistle of this match will be heard at 13:00, UK Time, and the hosts seem to be in pole-position.Bordeaux have lost against Marseille last week, 1-3 at Stade Velodrome. They are still on the 4th place in Ligue 1, with 24 points in their account and a good goal difference of 21-18, having one of the strongest attacks in the league. Bordeaux are unbeaten at home this season in Ligue 1, recording four wins and to draws and scoring two goals per game. The hosts will be without Pellenard, Jussie and Fauberg, all three being injured.

Lille are in very bad form, coming after five fixtures with only one point won. They have only 16 points in their account and an unimpressive goal difference, 9-12. The defence is still their strongest point, but the attack is struggling, being the worst in Ligue 1. Lille are the only ones with less than ten goals scored until now. They have only three points over the red line at the moment. Lopes is injured, while Souare, Beria and Corchia are suspended.

Bordeaux vs Lille probable lineups:
Bordeaux (3-4-2-1): Carrasso – Yambere, Planus, Pallois – Mariano, Plasil, Sertic, Contento – Belay, Khazri – Diabate.
Lille (4-3-3): Enyeama – Rozehnal, Basa, Kjaer, Sidibe – Gueye, Mavuba, Balmont – Rodelin, Origi, Mendes.

Prediction: Under 2.5 goals @ 1.50
Lille have a strong defence and a bad attack. Bordeaux are very different, but we expect a tight game, with less than three goals. In the last four meetings we saw 2,25 goals per match.

Chievo vs LazioChievo and Lazio will play the last game of Saturday in Italy Serie A. These two teams will be face to face in the 13th fixture of this campaign and the kick-off will be at 19:45, UK Time. If we talk about the odds, we can say that it will probably be a very balanced game.

Chievo are starting as underdogs at every bookmaker. They are coming after three league matches without defeat but even so they are still under the red line in Serie A. The hosts have only nine points and a bad goal difference of 9-17, being on the 18th position right now. They need a good result here and they will probably get out of the relegation zone for at least one week.

They are only on the 6th place right now, with 19 points in their account and a positive goal difference of 21-16. Lazio have a good attack, the third one in Italy, but their weakest point is the defence, with 1,33 goals conceded per game. Lazio will be without Gentiletti, Ciani and Pereirinha, injured, and Lulic, suspended.

Chievo vs Lazio probable lineusp:
Chievo (4-2-3-1): Bizzarri – Frey, Dainelli, Gamberini, Zukanovic – Hetemaj, Radovanovic – Izco, Meggiorini, Birsa – Paloschi.
Lazio (4-3-3): Marchetti – Basta, Vrij, Radu, Braafheid – Parolo, Biglia, Onazi – Candreva, Djordjevic, Mauri.

Prediction: Over 1.5 goals @ 1.36
Lazio have a very good attack, while both teams have some big problems when it comes about the defences. As we saw in four of the last five meetings, we expect at least two goals between these two sides.
