Sports Betting Preview by ROzsolt

CFR Cluj v Unirea Urziceni
Football: Romanian Supercup
Venue: Dr. Constantin Radulescu stadium, Cluj
Sunday 18th July – Kickoff time: 20:30 GMT+2


CFR Cluj



With 2 titles and 3 Romanian cups in the last 3 years, CFR is the best team Romania can give at this moment. The recipe with many players brought from all around the world (most of them from Argentina, Brazil, Portugal and Italy) has proved to be a winner.

CFR has been quite active on the transfer market, they signed Dominic Kivuvu (NEC Nijmegen), Sasa Bjelanovic (Vicenza), Felice Piccolo (Empoli) and a young Romanian International, Ioan Hora (Bistrita). De Zerbi (Napoli) is also expected to join the team before the end of the month. These names may not mean a lot but they are just what this team needs, most of the players are playing together for 2 or 3 years so the group is quite solid.

They had some good results on the pre-season preparation games, most important was the 3-0 victory over Anderlecht. Their only defeat in six games was against Slavia Praga 2-4, but coach Andrea Mandorlini tested a new system with 3 defenders at that game. This system will obviously not be implemented in official games.

This match will be played in Cluj, and CFR will have a great support, tickets are expected to sell-out.

Unirea Urziceni



Unirea will start the championship with the same squad, there were no transfers made this summer. This team was created by Dan Petrescu who had some great results, he won the championship in 2009 for the first time in their history and had a decent run in the UCL group stage, accumulating 8 points.

The players remained the same, but they are now coached by Ronny Levy who showed that he can continue his predecessors work just fine. Finishing 2nd last season was no surprise, Unirea in my opinion is the best organized team from the Romanian league, with players that may not have a great quality but they compensate by working a lot.

However they have developed a complex against CFR Cluj, they never managed to defeat them in their entire history (which is not long). Since 2006 when they first met, in 10 games Unirea only managed to avoid defeat 3 times, so that’s a clear advantage for CFR before this game.

Unirea just received a bad news from Uefa, they will face Zenit Sankt-Petersburg in the UCL qualifiers which seems to be a very difficult fixture for them. But they have the example of FC Timisioara in 2009 when they eliminated favorites Shakthar Donetsk in the UCL qualifiers.

The Betting Verdict :


Unirea over the last few years made their way up in the Romanian and why not international football, they could defeat anyone from the Liga 1 at this moment, with one exception: CFR Cluj. Urziceni have not discovered yet the cure against CFR and I don’t think they will do it in the near future.

CFR are hard to stop in their trophy winning spree, they are thirsty to add more and more trophies to their collection. With striker Traore in great form and newcomer Bjelanovic who promises a lot, CFR should break Unirea’s defense at least once and keep the cup home.

CFR are likely to win but remember that this is their first official game in the new season so keep the stakes reasonable.


The Pick :

CFR Cluj 1-0 Unirea Urziceni


FIXED ODDS BETTING :

Main bet: CFR Cluj to win at 2.1 Bet365

Side bet: Unirea Urziceni not to score at 2.2 Unibet

Match Odds: Man Utd 1.41, Draw 3.89, Celtic 5.84

Betting on pre season friendlies can be tricky as teams field unknown players and some are still on holiday mode. Tonight's match in Toronto featuring two of Britain's greatest ever clubs is unlikely to fall into that bracket. Whenever Manchester United meet Celtic you are guaranteed a competitive game regardless of the location.

United will be without Wayne Rooney and Park Ji-Sung and are also missing Rio Ferdinand and Gary Neville through injury. This will be an opportunity for some of United's fringe players like the talented Gabriel Obertan to show what they are about.

Celtic finished the season on a high under new manager Neil Lennon as they streaked to seven consecutive wins. The Hoops will use this game as preparation for their tough Champions League qualifier with Braga which will be played at the end of the month.

The sides have played each other four times in recent years in Europe's elite competition. United won two, drew one and lost the other in Glasgow. Alex Ferguson's side haven't had the best of preparations being grounded in Chicago with bad weather which delayed their arrival in Toronto.

Expect lots of substitutions and a few goals to entertain the fans who are paying up to $165 to see the game in the Rogers Stadium.

Celtic's odds (5.84) are way too long considering they have a proper competitive match in just over a week and United's build up has been less than ideal. A small stake is worthwhile but our tip is over 2.5 goals at 1.75.

Match Odds: Man Utd 1.41, Draw 3.89, Celtic 5.84

* Over 2.5 goals at 1.75. It's a friendly and Celtic will be motivated ahead of their important Champions League clash.


Yesterday's Tip
Our betting blogger tipped us off an accumulator bet for the Europa league. Utrecht and Levski won handily enough while Maritimo were made to sweat to beat Sporting Fingal 3-2. Things came unstuck when Honka could only draw with Bangor City and the heavy favourites even missed a penalty.


It has been widely reported that the Madrid Zoo has put in a bid with the Sea Life aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany, to have the legendary Paul the Octopus transferred over to the Spanish capital. But so far their advances have been shot down in flames by the Germans. Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the last month you should know the octopus has become a world-wide celebrity after correctly picking the winners of eight World Cup Games in South Africa this summer. Paul had a perfect record by going eight for eight with his choices. The octopus started out predicting the results of Germany games, but after they were eliminated by Spain in the semi final, he then chose the winners of the third-place match as well as the final. However, many Germany fans quickly turned on the eight-armed creature after Paul correctly guessed Germany’s demise. Unfortunately, some German fans turned on him by making death threats as well as suggesting he be cooked and eaten as soon as possible. But it appears Paul is going to go out while he’s on top and is packing in the predicting game. After hearing of the news, thousands of Spanish fans have petitioned the zoo to put in a transfer request as he’s a national hero for picking the country to lift the World cup for the first time in its history. It’s not sure what offer what put on the table, but the zoo guaranteed, “Paul will receive the best attention, reflecting the great affection in which he is held by all the Spanish people since he predicted that the Spanish team would win the football World Cup,” Either the offer wasn’t high enough or the German aquarium owners are just playing hardball to drive the price of the mollusc up as the Oberhausen officials rejected the bid and flatly said that Paul isn’t for sale. The aquarium added, “We are not in contact with Madrid Zoo. And we know nothing about swapping Paul for another animal or him going to Madrid Zoo for a transfer sum.” The aquarium has already turned down a 38,000 euro offer from a Spanish businessman for the octopus and at the moment it looks as if Paul’s going to retire in Germany.

Today's featured diversion is a J-League confront in between giants Kashima Antlers as great as Kawasaki Frontale. In new years, Kawasaki Frontale have become a most some-more unchanging hazard to a giants of Japanese football as great as this year is no exception so we should see a great diversion here today, hence a great odds.

However, my interest lies in a home win today. Kashima Antlers have been a most appropriate side in a country, in my opinion, as great as we design them to win a J-League. They've not been as inclusive during home as they should be yet 4 wins as great as a single pull from 5 home games this deteriorate is not a bad jot down during all, particularly carrying usually conceded twice during which run. They do not even have a massively credible jot down during home to Kawasaki Frontale, which is understandable, yet additionally aids my gamble odds-wise. They do regularly measure during home to Frontale as great as they tend to fool around out a small great games so starting over 2.5 goals looks worthy of consideration too. Kashima scored twice in this tie final deteriorate yet failed to win a game. Not usually does which discuss it me which they're able of violence a encumber now from a goalscoring viewpoint yet additionally which they will wish punish for a result.

What sways me towards a home win (as great as a handicap) is a actuality which Kawasaki Frontale have been still supposedly blank Renatinho. Without him, they usually do not measure goals, as was exemplified in their bad 0-0 pull during home to squalid Omiya Ardija final match. They're still a great side in essence yet it's similar to they skip a prong yet him playing. He's their leading goalscorer with 7 goals so his absence is of course noticeable. One statistic which Kawasaki Frontale similar to to gloss over by scoring a lot of goals is which they're bad in defence. Despite being fourth in a table, they've leaked some-more goals than every J-League side barring a bottom dual clubs, which have been Kyoto! Sanga a s great as newly-promoted Shonan Bellmare respectively. However, a single statistic which they cannot shun is which nobody in a J-League can compare how most goals they've leaked this deteriorate -a total of sixteen conceded in 6 games, which is an normal of scarcely 3 goals per divided game! They've won dual out of their 6 divided games during which time as great as mislaid 3 of them yet it's a miracle which they've not mislaid more, really! The usually proceed which they take points upon a highway is by outscoring their opponents - how have been they starting to do which yet Renatinho? That's a subject which is ever-present in my thoughts for this game.

Summarised - Kashima Antlers have been a improved side as great as have a great possibility to prove it, as great as take punish for final season's better opposite their opponents today. Kawasaki have been horrendous defensively, particularly upon a road, as great as they could be upon a receiving end of a complicated better now unless they put in a miraculous display. we similar to a home win an horrible lot here yet I'd usually validate a encumber if Renatinho does in truth skip a game. Either way, there have been a small great contingency upon this diversion today, in my opinion!

Verdict: Kashima Antlers to win during 10/11 or to kick a -1.75 idea encumber during 9/4.

Saturday's Picks

My tips:

As ever, subsequent have been my endorsed value tips for now in no sold order:

SV Kapfenberg vs Salzburg- lay Salzburg during 6/5.

SV Kapfenberg have been an normal Bundesliga side during most appropriate as great as Salzburg have been arguably a most appropriate side in a division. However, we have to foster a hosts a small today. It's a initial diversion of a deteriorate so they will be up for it as great as a usually time which they're great is during home - they do not transport great whatsoever. They mislaid great subsequent half of their home games final ! deterior ate notwithstanding finishing ninth in a list as great as even kick Salzburg here 2-0 final season. I'm not denying which Salzburg have been positively a improved of these dual sides yet they've usually won here twice out of their final 4 visits. They've mislaid aim man Marc Janko over summer to Twente Enschede in a Netherlands as great as they do not have as most options in conflict yet him. On tip of that, their committments lie in European football rsther than than domestically during a moment as great as nonetheless they ran out gentle 5-0 winners during home to HB Torshavn mid-week, they'll no doubt have to hope for for a tricky outing to a Faroe Islands, even yet they're 99% upon trial a place in a subsequent round anyway. With all of a upon top of in mind, we cruise it's value a shot laying Salzburg now - we do not cruise they should be as reduced as they are, during least.

Verdict: Lay Salzburg during 6/5.

Slovacko vs Teplice - divided win during 7/5.

This should be an engaging diversion as great as should additionally be approached with caution, as in truth should all bets upon sides personification their initial diversion of a season. However, a usually thing which Slovacko brought to a Gambrinus Liga final deteriorate was momentum; that's literally all which kept them from being relegated. Well, now they're during a begin of a brand new deteriorate as great as have been still horribly lacking in an critical area of a team, which is known ordinarily as "quality". Slovacko have been a unequivocally bad side, to be blunt, as great as should be considered likely to remove opposite usually about anyone. Now, nonetheless Teplice have a unequivocally great campaign final season, do not get as great carried divided - they're still a tip 6 side during best. However, what tender me a most was their incisive goalscoring upon a road, boasting a goalscoring jot down which usually Mlada Boleslav as great as Jablonc respectively could beat, hence a reason which! Teplice managed 6 divided wins infifteen games, which is a great jot down for this division. Teplice have been no world-beaters yet they're a lot improved than Slovacko as great as they showed it by violence them both home as great as divided final season. With which in mind, a divided win looks great value now as Teplice have been a small longer than they should be here.

Verdict: Teplice to win during 7/5.

OB Odense vs Esbjerg - underneath 2.5 goals during 5/6.

It's a begin of a deteriorate for both Superligaen sides now as great as we have to foster a hosts. Esbjerg played great for half of a deteriorate yet still couldn't costume a actuality which they simply cannot defend. They managed to recompense by scoring a lot of goals yet they're confronting a single of a stronger defences in Denmark now so should be found reduced in front of goal. OB do not measure most goals during all; they most prefer their 1-0 or 2-0 wins as great as we can't see which changing during a begin of a brand new season. OB will wish to get off to a winning begin yet as great most ceremony as great as we usually do not believe which Esbjerg have sufficient to difficulty them today. we cruise a contingency upon a home win have been as great reduced for this diversion yet we similar to underneath 2.5 goals during 5/6 as a result.

Verdict: Under 2.5 goals during 5/6.

Lootus vs Levadia Tallinn - underneath 2.5 goals during 2/1.

This is a confidant gamble since Lootus have been positively distressing as great as Levadia Tallinn have been 3 or 4 times improved than them. However, I'm basing this gamble upon dual things; Levadia's European committments as great as their lack of goalscoring. By their own lofty standards, Levadia have been not scoring sufficient goals as great as have been relying as great most upon dangerous Neemelo. It's a dangerous diversion for them to fool around as great as they have been held out a couple of times already this deteriorate as ! a result . You additionally have to bear in thoughts which they face a difficult outing to Hungary subsequent week to face bogey side Debreceni VSC after credibly receiving a 1-1 pull during home opposite a Hungarians this week. There is no proceed Levadia will prioritise this diversion so we cruise we'll see players rested. With a upon top of in mind, we can see Levadia winning a diversion yet not in style. I'd be bewildered if Lootus scored opposite anyone, let alone a most appropriate side in a division, so we have to call underneath 2.5 goals here during unsure yet unequivocally inexhaustible contingency of 2/1.

Verdict: Under 2.5 goals during 2/1.

HJK Helsinki vs KuPS Kuopio - lay HJK Helsinki during 8/5.

After clearly a whole universe finally realised which HJK have been crap in Europe after their better in Lithuania, they now horde a single of a revelations of a Veikkausliiga to illustrate far; KuPS Kuopio. The visitors have scored goals as great as put in dominating displays wherever they've played this deteriorate as great as should be taken severely while movement assists their over-achieveing ways. HJK have been a improved of a dual sides, no doubt, yet their concentration will be upon a lapse leg opposite Ekranas Panevezys subsequent week rsther than than this diversion so players will be rested. Aside from that, HJK have unequivocally struggled to mangle down resilient defences this deteriorate as great as KuPS positively have a single of those. HJK haven't scored sufficient in general as great as with players complacent today, we feel which could be matched by in-form KuPS. HJK have been distant as great reduced with a upon top of in thoughts so laying them could be a great value gamble today, nonetheless proceed with counsel as ever - HJK won 5-0 during KuPS upon a opening day of a deteriorate nonetheless KuPS committed suicide defensively upon which day, surrender twice unequivocally early in a game.

Verdict: Lay HJK Helsinki during 8/5.

TPV! Tampere vs KooTeePee Kotka - home win during 2/1.

I similar to this gamble a lot some-more than we should when we cruise how most improved KooTeePee have been than TPV Tampere! However, I'll take a gash during it since a contingency have been unequivocally distant as great inexhaustible today.

KooTeePee fool around a unequivocally predictable, efficient type of football which of course has pros as great as cons. It has pros since when they're in-form, they do not concur goals as great as to illustrate tend to grub out wins. However, this character of football doesn't leave them creating most chances as great as to illustrate they do not measure most goals. Therefore, when they're out-of-form, they're prime candidates to gamble opposite since they begin leaking goals as great as do not measure sufficient to opposite it. They're a small likea bad man's chronicle of Inter Turku from a Veikkausliiga, for those of we who follow Finnish football upon a small level. KooTeePee have mislaid 3 uninterrupted games now, which counts as bad form in my world! They've shipped 6 goals during which run, scored usually once, as great as have mislaid twice during home. This is a section which they're unequivocally not gentle in as great as nonetheless they have to exit this barren run during somepoint, we cruise they've picked a bad day to try as great as end it. TPV Tampere area bad side during most appropriate as great as will do great to stay in a Ykkonen this season.However, they do have clever movement following back-to-back wins during Hameenlinna as great as during home to MP Mikkeli respectively, scoring 5 goals during those dual games as great as gripping dual clean sheets. TPV have been buoyant as a outcome as great as they know they can kick KooTeePee - they did so in Tampere final year as great - so they'll whim their chances opposite their out-of-form visitors today, as do I. 2/1 is distant as great prolonged upon a home win here with a upon top of in thoughts yet again, be clever - if Koo! TeePee m easure initial then they have a capacity to grub out a win from that. Nonetheless, we unequivocally similar to a home win here as great as whim TPV's chances today.

Verdict: TPV Tampere to win during 2/1.

Shimizu S-Pulse vs Jubilo Iwata - underneath 2.5 goals during evens.

This has a hallmarks of beinga classical underneath 2.5 goals diversion in my world. Shimizu have been over-achieving this deteriorate as great as have been roving a wave of movement which has been brought to a halt following a mid-season break. They're now hosting a side which is used to harsh out draws since they're atypically not great sufficient to mangle out of mid-table during best. Iwata do not measure sufficient goals to ever be a hazard (just dual upon a highway in a J-League this season, in fact) yet they do not concur most either. Defence is their usually strength as great as we can rest positive which they'll fool around belligerent a bus now as great as competence even take a pull if they're lucky. Shimizu have been starting to be a small rusty for this game, naturally, so we wouldn't include them as gunnery section provender now - they're as great short, in my opinion. They competence great win a diversion by a idea or dual yet we cruise unders is a proceed forward here as I'd be bewildered to see Iwata register upon a road. This gamble hinges largely upon when a initial idea is scored (if there have been any) of course yet we cruise there's a great possibility of this diversion starting underneath as great as a contingency show decent value for it too.

Verdict: Under 2.5 goals during evens.

Jauniba vs Jurmala - divided win during 4/5.

These contingency have been a small shorter than I'd similar to yet we still whim it. Jurmala have been not usually improved than Jauniba yet have additionally been a explanation upon a highway this season, even winning during giants Liepajas Metalurgs in their final divided diversion - a outcome! which t hey're honestly not great sufficient to produce. However, they've been brillianton a highway this deteriorate with 4 wins in 6 games, a jot down onlyleague leaders FK Ventspils can improved during a moment as great as it's since of their lethal counter-attacking style, which helps them normal scoring dual goals peraway diversion currently. Jurmala have bizarrely mislaid all 5 home games in a Virsliga this deteriorate yet they're in effect upon a highway since of theircounter-attack. we would routinely design Jauniba to sit behind as great as fool around for a pull yet a morale-boosting win final compare will no doubt give them a impetus to conflict Jurmala so a higher visitors unequivocally should win this a single today. we was anticipating for evens upon a divided win yet I'll take them during 4/5 nonetheless I'd leave it if a contingency dump (as they substantially will)because Jurmala have been a mid-table side during best.

Verdict: Jurmala to win during 4/5.

Valerenga Oslo vs Kongsvinger - home win with -1.75 encumber during 3/4.

I can usually total up Valerenga's new form with dual words - "ominous" as great as "dominant". They blew their sour rivals Lillestrom divided by winning 4-1 divided from home opposite a side which doesn't concur goals as a order by blitzing them in a second-half frenzy. They followed up which win with a difficult outing to face Odd Grenland upon their notoriously difficult astro-turf as great as won there too. Valerenga have been positively drifting during a moment as great as have been seeking genuine title contenders for a change! It's arguably a initial time which they have since a days of John Carew nonetheless a quality has rarely been lacking; usually a consistency. However, Valerenga have been drifting since they're scoring so most goals as great as with 5 wins as great as dual draws from 7 home games this season, we have to feel which they'll win now too. They normal scoring great over dual goals per ! home div ersion as great as have been by distant a higher of these dual sides today. Kongsvinger usually look...well, relegated. Losing 2-0 during home final matchto a Stromsgodset side which have been atrocious divided from home is unforgivable. Kongsvinger boast no idea hazard as great as have already mislaid 6 out of 8 upon a highway in a Eliteserien this deteriorate while leaking over dual goals per divided game. They're in bad form as great as I'd be bewildered if they weren't relegated this season. 3/4 is reduced for a encumber yet I'll be stunned if Valerenga do not manage it - hell, they competence even mangle bigger handicaps if we feel lucky sufficient to behind them to do so.

Verdict: Valerenga Oslo to kick a -1.75 idea encumber during 3/4.

Spartak Moscow vs Rubin Kazan - divided win during 33/20.

I competence have liked TPV Tampere progressing butthat's nothing compared to how most we similar to this one. View this as a type of Arsenal vs Chelsea game; a flambuoyant yet ultimately disappointing hosts perform a iron machine of a visitors. Spartak Moscow usually fool around great with movement as great as they won't have any from their intolerable display in a Russian Cup mid-week so we do not whim their chances today. They've got a particular capability to cause any side problems yet as a team, they're mostly found lacking, particularly in defence. However, Rubin Kazan have been an comprehensive machine which usually do not concur goals. Their flaw is not scoring sufficient yet they hammered 3 goals past Krylya Sovetov Samara final compare so they have something to move into this game, during least. Rubin have conceded usually once in 5 divided games this deteriorate since of their rock-solid counterclaim as great as nonetheless their football is distant from pretty, it's flattering damn in effect as great as we design it to be now too.

Interestingly enough, out of a final 4 times this tie has been played (twice during possibly grou! nd), a d ivided side has regularly won. Rubin have won 3-0 here for dual years using as great as we wouldn't be bewildered to see a similar scoreline today. The contingency upon a divided win is inexhaustible sufficient yet we even whim a unequivocally impertinent -1.75 idea encumber during 11/2.

Verdict: Rubin Kazan to win during 33/20.

MSK Zilina vs Zlate Moravce - both sides to measure during 5/4.

MSK Zilina were intolerable in Malta mid-week, somehow losing to Birkirkara 1-0. They'll have taken a large blow mentally as a outcome yet have a possibility of emancipation today. However, I'm not meddlesome in a 1X2 betting for this diversion - Zilina have been as great short, nonetheless they should do a compulsory damage. What we am meddlesome in is which they'll be focusing upon a lapse outing of Birkirkara subsequent week as great as which their usually solid counterclaim has been cracked distant as great easily, as in truth it has been proven in friendlies too. Although Zilina will substantially win this game, we cruise a contingency upon both sides scoring is distant as great inexhaustible during 5/4 so we whim which outcome now as newly-promoted Zlate Moravce earned their promotion by scoring an horrible lot of goals as great as will wish to impress in their initial diversion of their initial deteriorate behind in a Corgon Liga, particularly opposite a single of a biggest sides in a division.

Verdict: Both teams to measure during 5/4.

Nitra vs Dubnica - home win during 13/20.

These contingency have been as great prolonged upon Nitra, which is why we similar to it! Nitra have already played dual competitive games in a UEFA Europa League as great as nonetheless they eventually succumbed to better opposite Gyori ETO FC of Hungary, they scored in both legs as great as confirmed their common potential as a result. Nitra have been bad defensively yet they measure sufficient goals for it to not have a difference in games! similar to this. Dubnica have been a bad side as great as have been generally bad divided from home since they do not measure goals. Most Slovak sides have been able of violence any other as great as if this diversion was during Dubnica then we wouldn't hold it. However, with Nitra carrying compare practice as great as a capability to measure goals upon their side, not to mention a improved team, we feel which 13/20 upon a home win is as great inexhaustible to overlook - they should be most shorter for this game.

Verdict: Nitra to win during 13/20.

AIK Solna vs Malmo - divided win during 5/4.

I was gobsmacked when we saw AIK during 2/1 to win this game; a bookies have unequivocally approached this diversion well! we was anticipating Malmo would be most longer than they have been yet we'll have to have do here.

After an expectedly bad display mid-week opposite Luxembourgian minnows Jeunesse d'Esch, AIK now have work to do in a divided leg, which is subsequent week, to illustrate they will be resting players. They've mislaid their iron counterclaim this deteriorate as great as have looked incredibly vulnerable as a outcome since they do not measure anywhere nearby sufficient goals. Malmo, however, have been a explanation as great as have been scoring goals for fun both during home as great as upon a road. They've usually won 3 out of 7 upon a highway yet that's definitely great for a Allsvenskan, really! Malmo have scored a lot some-more than any a single else upon a road, which creates them a unchanging threat, so we have to whim a divided win as they're confronting an insufficient AIK side with their concentration elsewhere, nonetheless do proceed with counsel as these dual have been big rivals. It's engaging to note which AIK haven't scored for their final dual games opposite Malmo, losing 1-0 during home to them final deteriorate too...

Verdict: Malmo to win during 4/5.

Syrianska Sodertalje vs De gerfors - home win during evens.

I similar to a home win here since Degerfors should be upon a descent mentally. They've had a great campaign following promotion yet dual uninterrupted defeats as great as a sale of their most appropriate player should send them spiralling downwards as great as we design this to be a single of a games which pushes them further down a table. Syrianska haven't hada great campaign so distant yet they're a great side, generally during home, as great as have won 4 out of 7 upon their own turf already this season. They've won dual out of their final 3 games as great as drew during today's opponents Degerfors final compare where they could unequivocally have won a game. we design them to have justification as great as win this a single now with home amenities nonetheless we design a low-scoring diversion here, particularly Degerfors have been doubtful to funtion as a common section yet their most appropriate player.

Verdict: Syrianska Sodertalje to win during evens.

Grasshoppers Zurich vs Neuchatel Xamax - home win with -1.75 encumber during 2/1.

At 33/1, Grasshoppers have been unequivocally value a nictitate to win a Super League title this year. They were positively superb final deteriorate as great as have a foundations to re-build their once great group as great as what improved time to begin than now? Young Boys Bern have sold their most appropriate striker as great as Basel have been ageing so Grasshoppers should never be such prolonged contingency to win a title.

However, my primary interest now is a home win, which should be sincerely straightforward. Grasshoppers have been simply a most improved side as great as have been definitely dominant during home, scoring goals during will. They've won 3 uninterrupted games opposite Neuchatel Xamax as great as we design this diversion now to furnish their fourth uninterrupted win - they're usually as great great for their opponents. Neuchatel simp! ly do no t transport great as great as nonetheless they have a robe of causing Grasshoppers a problem in a past, we do not prognosticate it function today. Neuchatel have been confronting a unequivocally determined as great as able Grasshoppers now as great as we unequivocally whim them to take a complicated beating, even yet it's a initial diversion of a Super League season. Either way, a contingency upon Grasshoppers to kick a encumber during home have been laughably great when we bear in thoughts which they averaged scoring great over dual goals per home diversion final season.

Verdict: Grasshoppers Zurich to kick a -1.75 idea encumber during 2/1.

Newcastle United physical education instructor Chris Hughton believes football will shift following Spains World Cup triumph.
Spain valid to be experts at getting the pursuit done, though also did so by personification an attractive code of football.
Hughton said: Nobody really played similar to Spain did in the tournament, apart from maybe Brazil. Spains passing diversion stood out, as good as they showed usually how in effect we can be personification teeming football. Thats not usually from an attacking point of view, though their movement from the defensive point of perspective has to be the success as good they won the lot of games 1-0. They have been consistent, not usually in this contest though right the way by subordinate as good as further back. we think theyve kept something similar to twenty clean sheets in 32 matches. For an descent team thats impressive, though it goes to show theyve got it right at the back as well. Tactically, this has been the really engaging World Cup, though we suspect if youre comparing Spain domestically, we could usually contend Arsenal attempt to produce such the similar style.

English & European Football Clubs & Leagues News | Video | Commentary

Today's featured diversion is a UEFA Europa League confront in Bulgaria in between Levski Sofia as great as Dundalk. Hosts Levski Sofia already have a value of being a some-more gifted of these dual sides in European foe as great as it should ultimately uncover by a final whistle too.

Levski Sofia have been a single of a many appropriate sides in Bulgaria notwithstanding a unsure A PFG showing in their final campaign. Nonetheless, they're a gifted side as great as they do exaggerate arguably a many bizarre European form around. They've played 4 home games in a UEFA Europa League, all 4 of that were home defeats, 3 of that went underneath 2.5 goals, as great as all 4 of that Levski Sofia unsuccessful to measure in. Their 4 divided games have all left underneath 2.5 goals as great as they've a single once as great as lost 3 times. Suffice to contend that they're a plain side if zero else. They miss a sufficient level of potential to be a constant threat in European foe though they're clever defensively as great as to illustrate regularly a great claimant for starting underneath 2.5 goals.

Visitors Dundalk scare me a small for this gamble as any side that can concur 3 times in twenty mins opposite Luxembourgian antithesis can be frail defensively. However, I'm receiving comfort from a actuality that they're mid-season as great as that they'll proceed this diversion as underdogs, that is only how all Irish sides identical to to play. you stop Derry City creation a identical outing final deteriorate to take upon Levski's large local rivals CSKA Sofia with everybody saying that CSKA would destroy them though they underestimated a cult celebrity of a Irish tenacity! The scoreline finished 1-0 to CSKA though it took a prolonged time until a hosts got their breakthrough. I'm expecting a identical diversion currently nonetheless it is worth indicating out that Dundalk aren't as great as Derry were though it's also worth noting that Levski do not measure as many as CSKA do.

Bluntly, this a sing! le is so mething of a bookies' trap. It's identical to they wish you to consider this will be a walkover whereas you believe it will be anything but. If Levski eventually manage to measure afterwards they should win this a single 1-0 or 2-0 opposite a dynamic though sincerely talentless Dundalk side. However, I'm not even interested in backing a Levski win here opposite resilient opponents - I'm only surprised during how inexhaustible a contingency have been upon starting underneath 2.5 goals today!

Verdict: Under 2.5 goals during 11/10.

Thursday's Picks

My tips:

As ever, below have been my recommended worth tips for currently in no particular order:

Valletta vs Ruch Chorzow- divided win during 11/20.

These contingency have been as great long! Polish sides might not travel great though Ruch were well-developed in Kazakhstan in a final turn so I'm unequivocally confident that they can do a pursuit in Malta. The contingency should be closer to 1/3 for this a single as you design Ruch to palliate to feat here opposite an defective as great as comparatively impotent host.

Verdict: Ruch Chorzow to win during 11/10.

OFK Belgrade vs Torpedo Zhodino - lay OFK Belgrade during 7/4.

If this isn't extreme over-estimation of a hosts, afterwards you do not know what is. Serbian football has stagnated over a past couple of years - even Red Star as great as Partizan do not exaggerate a same threat in European foe anymore. OFK Belgrade have been a defensive, low-scoring, uninteresting side as great as they look distant as great reduced to me here with that in mind. They're not a many gifted of sides in this foe as great as whereas you won't deny that they have been improved than their opponents today, you still do not see because they're so short. Serbian sides have been famous for not scoring sufficient goals as great as whereas their opponents currently follow a identical style of footb! all, you still do not see a logic during a behind of OFK Belgrade being such favourites. Torpedo aren't a quite great side though they're devoted as great as will reason onto a 0-0 here since possibility as great as that's only what you consider will happen. They're mid-season so do have compare make make use of of as great as they're confronting a unequivocally identical side so design a physical diversion here. However, laying a hosts currently looks unbelievably inexhaustible during 7/4, as does starting underneath 2.5 goals.

Verdict: Lay OFK Belgrade during 7/4.

Elfsborg Boras vs Iskra-Stal - underneath 2.5 goals during 11/10.

Moldovan sides have an hapless jot down of being unequivocally tough to kick in European football nowadays, only identical to their national side is starting to become. Never blink them or you'll get burned. Iskra-Stal have been not a single of a improved sides in Moldova as great as have been mostly fresh in European foe as a result though they'll set up their counterclaim a same way that a giants of their country as great - eleven men during a behind of a turn - that creates them tough to beat. Elfsborg have been a higher side though they've yet to remonstrate in a Allsvenskan this deteriorate upon a consistent basis. They've been inhuman during home with 5 wins in seven games as great as averaging scoring scarcely 3 goals per home diversion though this is a unequivocally different competition indeed. Elfsborg have been positively great sufficient to win this diversion though it depends how prolonged a Moldovans hang upon for as to how many goals will be scored. you do not consider Elfsborg will measure early in a diversion so starting underneath 2.5 goals during 11/10 could be a great gamble here nonetheless of course do proceed with counsel - If Elfsborg's duplicate is scold afterwards this diversion could end 6-0!

Verdict: Under 2.5 goals during 11/10.

Gorica vs Randers - divided win during 21/10.

How u! pon eart h have been Gorica favourites for this game?! It's possibly a large marketplace over-reaction to Randers' defeat in Luxembourg with an under-strength side (as they'd already progressed) or it's been based upon their made during home displays final season. Either way, Randers many positively have been a improved side here so I'm a bit confused during a contingency upon uncover here. Gorica adore to measure goals, that you admire them for, though their counterclaim is incredibly diseased as great as should get exposed simply today. This Gorica side has somehow even managed to remove during home to Rabotnicki Skopje in a past few years in this foe so you do not have a lot of faith in them! A narrow win during home to FC Lahti of Finland final deteriorate did small to improve my certainty in them either! Gorica's strategy have been not yet fit for European make make use of of as great as you consider they're up opposite a side that will retaliate them for it. When Randers apply themselves correctly, they're a single of a many appropriate sides in Denmark. They've demonstrated that already this deteriorate opposite a diseased Luxembourgian competition by violence them in style as great as resting players for a lapse leg. Don't blink Randers though- they unequivocally have been a great as great as spirited side. They're distant as great prolonged to win this diversion so you have to behind a Randers win during unequivocally inexhaustible contingency of 21/10.

Verdict: Randers to win during 21/10.

Dinamo Minsk vs Sillamae Kalev - home win with -1.75 handicap during evens.

Belarusian football is unequivocally clever during a moment as great as Dinamo Minsk have been a single of a dual fore-runners of it along with reigning Vysshaya Liga champions BATE Borisov. Dinamo Minsk have been playing unequivocally great this deteriorate by being clinical as great as keeping purify sheets. They have a great jot down opposite Baltic sides as great as Sillamae ! Kalev ar en't unequivocally great sufficient to be in this competition. The visitors had a great debate final year though they're not a single of a tip sides in Estonia for me - they're fourth during best. They identical to to conflict as great as their counterclaim is utterly diseased in comparison to a level of conflict that they're confronting currently so you have to feel that a hosts have sufficient about them to do repairs today. Dinamo Minsk need to measure early in a diversion as they fool around possession football as great as that doesn't regularly move about a many goals. However, they're confronting an competition that they can simply intimidate since a breaks as great as you identical to a chances of them you do so, quite with a handicapat such great odds.

Verdict: Dinamo Minsk to kick a -1.75 thought handicap during evens.

Zestaponi vs Dukla Banska Bystrica - home win during evens.

This is a indeterminate call though a single that you like. Georgia is never an easy venue for an divided side as bad Faetano of San Marino detected final turn as they were broken by their hosts. However, Georgian sides do not tend to measure many during home so you do not customarily behind them. That said, Zestaponi have been a exception; they adore to measure goals, in all during home. They're unequivocally most an aggressive side as great as you design them to make make use of of that value as great as their experience in European foe opposite their Slovakian opponents today. you consider a dual sides have been utterly well-matched though Banska have been yet to fool around a rival diversion this deteriorate as great as haven't appeared in European football for 5 years now. you consider a visitors currently might be undone by momentum, experience, as great as potency, nonetheless you can only emphasise counsel as they're dual well-matched sides, as I've settled already. Expect plenty of goals, possibly way!

Verdict: Zestaponi to wi! n during evens.

Molde vs Jelgava - over 2.5 goals during 3/4.

Molde have had a terrible Eliteserien debate this season. They've missed players, admittedly, though they're leaking goals for fun. They're by distant a higher side opposite Jelgava though you have to feel that Jelgava can measure here because Molde concur goals so simply during a moment. Molde's returning players have since me certainty in their capability to find a net so that doesn't regard me - Jelgava aren't great sufficient defensively to keep them out - though it's their defensive uselessness that intrigues me here. For me, over 2.5 goals in this diversion during 3/4 should be a bargain as you approaching it to be distant shorter than that, especiallygiven Molde's capability to concur 3 goals in dual mins as shown opposite Lillestrom domestically!

Verdict: Over 2.5 goals during 3/4.

Stabaek vs Dnepr Mogilev - over 2.5 goals during evens.

"Stabaek" as great as "over 2.5 goals" have been dual things that travel hand-in-hand everywhere. Stabaek cannot urge as great as adore to attack. They're clinical, they've got great players as great as finishers, as great as notwithstanding a problems they do have during a moment, you only know that they're starting to measure goals today. Dnepr have been a clever defensive section though Stabaek have a knack of exploiting defences of this inlet during slightest once as great as if Dnepr come out to fool around Stabaek, they'll be destroyed. That said, Stabaek cannot counterclaim so you might see Dnepr do something comparatively inconceivable in their defensive universe as great as conflict to try as great as sneak an divided thought as you do not see Stabaek winning in Belarus in a lapse leg. Eitehr way, barring Dnepr carrying a lot of happening opposite Stabaek today, this diversion will go over 2.5 goals. Dnepr have been a side that you respecta lot though they do not have a great sufficient counterclaim to keep out a likes of Stabaek.

Verdict: O! ver 2.5 goals during evens.

Kalmar vs Dacia Chisinau - underneath 2.5 goals during evens.

This preview followsa unequivocally identical capillary to that of Elfsborg vs Iskra-Stal. However, for me, this a single has even some-more possibility of starting underneath 2.5 goals. Kalmar have been sincerely indeterminate domestically this deteriorate butalways enjoy their underneath 2.5 goals games. They do not measure sufficient though identical to to keep a turn so they're not an easy side to face. Dacia have been a single of a many appropriate 3 sides in Moldova as great as have been unequivocally gifted in European football as a result. I'm 100% certain that they'll play ground a bus in front of a thought in this diversion as great as they're worryingly great in defence, usually. you do not see low-scoring Kalmar you do as great most repairs as great as you do not see any divided goals here so you should see underneath 2.5 goals today.

Verdict: Under 2.5 goals during evens.

Maritimo Funchal vs Sporting Fingal - underneath 2.5 goals during 6/5.

My first reaction to these contingency was utterly simply "eh?". How can a home side that hardly averages scoring 1.5 goals per home diversion domestically, a side that has never competed in a home diversion in European football where some-more than a single thought has been scored, have a diversion opposite a devoted as great as defensive competition labelled during 6/5? It's positively mind-boggling - I've no thought where these contingency come from sometimes! Maritimo have been a great side as great as they have been a improved side, yes, though them scoring twice in a single diversion is something that they appear to be vexed doing! Fingal have been starting to come here for a pull as great as you do not see them carrying most of a turn as a result, as great as to illustrate not scoring. However, they'll play ground a bus so this diversion has got underneath 2.5 goals all over it in my eyes - hell, I'm not even th! at confi dent that Maritimo will win a game!

Verdict: Under 2.5 goals during 6/5.

Siauliai vs Wisla Krakow - lay Wisla Krakow during 21/20.

Lithuanian football doesn't deserve a prolonged contingency that they keep getting in European football as great as for me, this is a classical example. Wisla have been a unequivocally great side upon their day as great as have been giants of Polish football with lots of European experience. However, they were rather bad final deteriorate with their displays, mostly due to struggling to measure opposite stubborn defences, that is only what they'll face today. Siauliai have been not a single of a many appropriate sides in Lithuania though they know how to urge as great as Wisla struggle opposite this sort of defence, generally. Siauliai have been mid-season; Wisla have been yet to fool around a rival game. Wisla have won once in their final 8 divided games in European football. For me, you can't see because Wisla have been so short, quite considering their aggressive problems. Laying a visitors currently looks distant as great inexhaustible in my eyes as great as should be worth a punt today.

Verdict: Lay Wisla Krakow during 21/20.

Anorthosis Famagusta vs Sibenik - lay Anorthosis Famagusta during 29/20.

Anorthosis fucked me up twice final round; you hope they won't again!

Anorthosis have been confronting a most improved side this time around though so they should struggle. They're not as great as they were as great as they in all do not measure sufficient goals. Sibenik struggled opposite Maltese side Sliema Wanderers final round, not because of a miss of possession though because of a miss of goalscoring. Defensively, Sibenik have been very, unequivocally great so do not blink them here. They most cite playing as underdogs as great as you design a difficult compare for Anorthosis as a result. I'm concerned that Sibenik do not measure sufficient goals, quite carrying sold their many appropriate striker in summ! er, thou gh you can see them land a in all low-scoring Anorthosis side to a pull here currently so because laying a hosts is so prolonged is over me - Sibenik have been unequivocally assured defensively as it's a strongest part of their diversion by some distance.

Verdict: Lay Anorthosis Famagusta during 29/20.

Accumulator fodder:

Ruch Chorzow, FK Ventspils, FC Honka Espoo, MyPa Anjalankoski, Austria Vienna, FC Utrecht, Besiktas JK, Zrinjski Mostar, Brondby,

Recommended bets:

I'm not fond of large accumulators though Dinamo Minsk, FC Honka Espoo, MyPa Anjalankoski, Ruch Chorzow, Zrinjski Mostar, FK Ventspils, as great as Austria Vienna during 4/1 looks unequivocally engaging indeed.
