Crystal Palace vs Arsenal
Competition: Premier League
Date: 28 December 2017
Kick-off Time: 20:00 GMT
Venue: Selhurst Park, London
Crystal Palace currently has 16 points less than Arsenal, but it should be mentiond that the last season’s triumph of the team with as much as 3-0, because they have thus ended a series of seven defeats and one draw in duels with Arsenal. The current form of Crystal Palace is at a high level because they are in the series of three championship wins and five draws series, which, among other things, led the team to their long-awaited escape from the relegation zone.
All thanks are given to their coach, Hodgson, who brilliantly succeeded to find the extra strength in his players, both in defence and in the attack, since, in the last four games,they scored an average of two goals. However, Crystal Palace is still only 02 points away from the 18th Bournemouth, so it is expected that the team will try to stay undefeated against Arsenal. The defenders Fosu-Mensah, Ward, Sakho and Delaney and striker Wickham will be absent for this match.
Arsenal on the other side had a good match with Liverpool, in which they managed to return from the minus of 02 goals in six minutes, and then when they had a 3-2 lead, they received the third goal and eventually had to contend with just one point. And since it is their 3rd draw in the last four rounds, then it was quite logical to break the placement on the table so Arsenal currently occupy the 6th position, but with the same number of points as fifth Tottenham and one less than the fourth Reds.
As a result, Arsenal now will try to defeat Crystal Palace in this dual, which on the other hand plays very good lately, so, coach Wenger’s players, will have to play well to get to all the three points. Besides that, Arsenal's defence has shown a lot of weaknesses in the game with Liverpool, so coach, Wenger is expected to makes several changes in the starting lineup. The injured playrers are: defender Monreal, midfielders Ramsey and Cazorla, and striker Giroud.

Crystal Palace last 5 matches:
02/12/17 West Brom 0 – 0 Crystal Palace

Eibar vs FC Girona 
Competition: Primeira Liga
Date: 21 December 2017
Kick-off Time: 19:30 GMT
Venue: Ipurua Municipal Stadium
Eibar team had much strugle this season and it seemed that they could finish their adventure in Primeira Liga, but,suddenly, they started playing much better and their positive series is still on going. Eibar negative series lasted for seven games, out of which they lost 05 times and received many goals in that period. The last time they lost a game was at the beginning of November against Real Sociedad, and then starts the series which is currently at five matches with 04 wins and no defeat.
Eibar easily defeated Real Betis and then Espanyol on their field, and in the last round, they defeated also Valencia with 2-1, and before Valencia also Getafe, with the proviso that Jordan missed the penalty.
FC Girona, on the other side, had their own crisis at the very beginning when they had 06 matches without a win and were then at the edge of the relegation zone, but they also managed to recover and had three consecutive wins, of which once against Real Madrid which help them get in the middle of the table, and with the new two wins in the previous two rounds the team also got at the upper part. It is quite interesting that FC Girona made the all six wins with minimal difference, so three times it was 1-0 and 2-1.
After a defeat by Deportivo Alaves three rounds ago, when they managed to drop the lead with 2-0, they managed to consolidate their ranks and celebrate against Espanyol with 1-0 away, as well as against Getafe on their field in the last round. Girona is having more problems with cards than with injuries lately, so Pere Pons paused in the last round, while Granella will not be in the team due to yellow cards. 

Probable lineups for this match:
Eibar: Dmitrovic – Capa, P.Oliveira, Arbilla, Jose Angel – Alejo, Jordan, D.Garcia, Inui – Charles, S.Enrichs
FC Girona: Bono – Espinosa, Ramalho, Juanpe – Maffeo, Pons, Timor, Mojica – Portu, Stuani, Borja

AS Saint-Etienne vs AS Monaco French Ligue 1 15-12-2017

AS Saint-Etienne vs AS Monaco  
Competition: French Ligue 1
Date: 15 December 2017
Kick-off Time: 20:45 GMT
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard
Saint-Etienne team need to play best to remain undefeated in this game with the current champions. The replacement of Garcia did not help the team too much, who was otherwise fired after a shocking home defeat of 5-0 in the match with Olympique Lyon, because the team, under the baton of new coach Sable, only made two home draws and three guest defeats.The last defeat was inflicted by Olympique Marseille at Velodrome Stadium, with a score of 3:0, while they in the same way ended their previous performance at Bordeaux. St. Etienne managed to avoid defeat in their last two appearances, but now against Monaco, they must be even more aggressive if they want to get a positive result. Defenders Perrin and Silva are out of action due to injuries, and striker Hamoum, while defender Pierre-Gabriel is also unable to perform.
For to the current French rivals, AS Monaco, it is now quite certain that they will not be able to defend that title, because they have nine points less after 17 rounds than the leading Paris Saint Germain, which recently defeated them in Monaco with 2-1. After that coach, Jardim’s players, were defeated by Nantes, while they were a little better in the next two games and they were defeated at home with 1-0 by Angers and last weekend with 3-2 by Troyes.Nevertheless, Monaco made a routine victory of 2-0 at home against Caen, while they had to leave the UEFA Champions League in the worst possible way because they were defeated by RP Leipzig and FC Porto in the last two rounds and they ended up in the last place in their group. However, this is good thing in some way, because they can now fully dedicate themselves to their domestic championship and the struggle for placement in the Champions League. Injured midfielders Tielemans and Traore and striker Jovetic will not be able to play this match.

Probable lineups:
AS Saint-Etienne: Ruffier – Janko, Theophile-Catherine, Lacroix, M'Bengue – Dabo, Selnaes, Pajot – Bamba, Diony, Cabella
AS Monaco: Subasic – Sidibe, Glik, Jemerson, Jorge – Fabinho, Moutinho – Ghezzal, Lemar, Keita – Falcao

FC Porto vs Benfica Primeira Liga 01/12/2017

0 التعليقات
Porto vs Benfica
Competition: Primeira Liga
 Date: 1 December 2017
Kick-off Time: 20:30 GMT
Venue: Estadio Do Dragao, Porto
FC Porto was behind their big rival from Lisbon, so the team's only goal this season was to end this four-year rule of Benfica in the Primeira Liga. Currently, everything is going well for the team, since they, after 12 rounds played, are holding the 1st place on the table, while, with a victory in this great derby, they will have six points more than the current champions.
However, Sporting is in the race for the very top, and they have only two points less than FC Porto, after the championship leader last weekend only played a draw 1-1 against Deportivo Aves. Previously, coach Conceicao’s players, have with the same result played away against Besiktas in the UEFA Champions League, so now, Porto needs any kind of victory in the last round when they are welcoming the already written off Monaco.The only absence for Benfica in this game is the suspended striker, Corona.
On the contrary, Benfica's players have long lost all hope for placement in the round of sixteen of the UEFA Champions League, so it is no surprise that they were recently defeated by CSKA Moscow away with 2-0. Benfica, the current Portuguese champions, have experienced the same fate in the previous four rounds, which means that they no longer have any chance to win placement in the UEFA Europa league as the third ranked team, because they have 09 points less than Basel and CSKA Moscow before this last round.
However, after the fifth consecutive defeat in the Champions League, coach Rui Vitorie's players, made a convincing home win of 6-0 over Setubal, so they are now in a better mood awaiting the match with the leader Porto. But, because of these three points less, it would not be a good thing for Benfica to lose at Dragao Stadium. The injured players are: goalkeeper, Julio Cesar, and center-back, Dias.

Manchester United vs Watford English Premier League 28/11/2017

Watford vs Manchester United
Competition: Premier League
Date: 28 November 2017
Kick-off Time: 20:00 GMT
Venue: Vicarage Road Stadium, Watford
Watford team are aware that now is far more difficult task given that the guests from Manchester occupy at the moment the second place in the table and every point is very important in the race for the top. Manchester United come to Watford after three consecutive defeats away, which is a chance for coach Silva players especially, as in two previous rounds, won West Ham at home 2-0 and Newcastle away 3-0 last weekend.
Player, Troy Deeney, is present for this after serving a three-game ban while, Miguel Britos and Kiko Femenia, are both doubts for this game. Coach, Marvin Zeegelaar's probable lineups, may keep Jose Holebas out, with in-form Will Hughes also expected to retain his starting berth in midfield alongside Aboulaye Doucourè and Roberto Pereyra. In the up front, striker Andrè Gray should continue to lead the line, with Richarlison tucked behind him. In defense, Sebastian Prodl, Christian Kabasele and Adrian Mariappa are expected  to defend Heurelho Gomes' posts. While player: Younes Kaboul, Craig Cathcart, Tommie Hoban, Isaac Success, and Nathaniel Chalobah are all remaining injured.
The guests from Manchester made a good record of 10 wins out of 10 at Old Trafford on Saturday with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Brighton. A win is a win though, and it kept Manchester Uinted in the second place in the Premier League table. Anyway, the team have tasted defeat in three of their last four road trips in all competitions, including their last two Premier League away matches at Huddersfield and Chelsea as well as an UEFA Champions League clash in Basel, Switzerland. The Red Devils have won 9 of their last 10 games against Watford in all competitions but lost by 3-1 in this corresponding fixture last season. Centre-backs, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones, are still doubtful of attending this match, which means that coach, Josè Mourinho, could play with a three main backline formed by players: Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof. Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind are likely to start as wing backs of the 3-5-1-1 system, meaning that Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia will stay on the bench. Coach, Mourinho,may make major changes  up front, where Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are likely to be rested, allowing Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Juan Mata or Zlatan Ibrahimovic to support a struggling Romelu Lukaku in attack. Ander Herrera, Pual Pogba and Marouane Fellaini are expected to start in the middle of the match, with player, Nemanja Matic, as further option.

Stuttgart vs Borussia Dortmund Bundesliga 17-11-2017

VfB Stuttgart vs Borussia Dortmund 
Competition: German Bundesliga
Date: 17 November 2017

In the first-third of the Bundesliga championship, VfBStuttgart has played almost with the same rhythm and with only one draw at home. In the remaining four games in front of their supporters, Stuttgart celebrated victories, but they lost all six games and only scored three goals. Before the break the team played against HSV away and that was the sixth defeat, where they managed to score one goal in moments, when they were lesser players on the field.
Player, Burnic, was excluded at the very beginning of the match and it was clear then that it would be hard to do something. This feeling was particularly intensified when Stuttgart received the first goal, and then they equalized at the beginning of the second half and it woke up the hope that lasted only ten minutes. The good news of the team was that center-back, Badstuber, recovered and that midfielder Ascacibar completed his suspension, while Burnic will not certainly be in the team from the previously injured players.
Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, is surely one of the teams, which benefited from this short break, because they were in the big crisis before. They made two draws with Nicosia APOEL practically excluded them from the fight for the round of sixteen of the UEFA Champions League, in which they certainly had great ambitions and will now have to contend with UEFA Europa League. Dortmund started well in the championship and then fell incomprehensibly, so they are without a win in the previous four games. From this, the team only played one draw and that was away with Eintracht, where they dropped two goals advantage.
They were defeated at home in two big derbies from Leipzig and Bayern Munich, and completely unexpected by Hannover as guests. Borussia Dortmund have received 12 goals in these four matches and it is clear that they have a problem, so now Bartra and Sokratis are expected, in formation with four in the last line, where Piszczek is missing. Toljan could be in that position, and perhaps Guerreiro plays on the left back. 

Probable Lineups For Stuttgart and Borussia Dortmund:
VfB Stuttgart: Zieler – Beck, Baumgartl, Badstuber, Insua – Ascacibar, Aogo – Asano, Akolo, Ozcan – Ginczek
Borussia Dortmund: Burki – Toljan, Bartra, Sokratis, Guerreiro – Sahin, Castro, M.Gotze – Yarmolenko, Pulisic, Aubameyang

Manchester City vs Napoli
Competition: UEFA Champions League
Kick-off Time: 19:45 GMT 
Date: 17 October 2017
Venue: Etihad Stadium, Manchester 

Manchester United will try to defeat Napoli, especially as they will play at their Etihad stadium. Manchester City has a nine-game winning streak out of which two matches were won in the UEFA Champions League, with Feyenoord away and Shakhtar at home, one in the League Cup and 06 in the English Premier League, which in fact propelled the team at the leading place in table.
In the previous round, Manchester City had the same number as the city rival Manchester United, but, after home victory of even 7-2 over Stoke and United’s draw with Liverpool away, the point difference between these two teams is 02 points, while third-placed Tottenham already lags for five points. It is supposed that coach, Guardiola, will not make drastic changes in the team for this match with Napoli, especially as out of action are only from before: injured defenders Kompany and Mendy.
Napoli,on the other side, is leader in the Italian Serie A before this UEFA Champions League match, although unlike Manchester City, they haven’t lost a single point by now. In the first 08 rounds of the Italian Serie A, coach Sarri players, won the same number of times, so now Napoli has two points more than Inter Milan, which will meet in next round and even five more than third-placed Juventus and fourth-positioned Lazio.
Taking into account that Napoli won a very valuable away victory over Roma 1-0, which means that the atmosphere in the locker room before Manchester trip is at the highest possible level. Ahead of them is a very tough match, given that Manchester City is in excellent shape at the moment. In addition to that, after defeat by Shakhtar, Napoli currently has 03 points fewer. Out of action for this game are only injured forward Milik and suspended stopper Koulibaly.

Probable lineups for the match:
Manchester City: Ederson – Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Delph – de Bruyne, Fernandinho, D. Silva – Sterling, Jesus, Sane
Napoli: Reina – Hysaj, Albiol, Chiriches, Ghoulam – Allan, Jorginho, Hamsik – Callejon, Mertens, Insigne

Liverpool vs Manchester United English Premier League 14-10-2017

0 التعليقات
Liverpool vs Manchester United 
Competition: Premier League

The great derby comes for the Liverpool after two consecutive away draws by 1-1. Liverpool firstly drew in the UEFA Champions League with Spartak Moscow and then in the Premier League with Newcastle, which is why the Liverpool has even 07 points fewer than leading duo from Manchester. Concerning players, it is certainly the most important to outline that the newest name on the injured list is great striker Mane, while on it are from before: defender Clyne, midfielder Lallana and forward Ings.
Unlike for Liverpool, the greatest English derby comes for the guest from Manchester after six consecutive victories, which indicates they will at Anfield stadium go after all three points. On top of it they are still locked in the dead heat for the first place in Premier League with their city rival. Manchester United is inspired in attack lately, given that it won 04 games by four scored goals in a short period of time.
In the second round of UEFA Champions League, Manchester United defeated CSKA Moscow away by 4-1, while in the League Cup they defeated at home with the 2nd team second-division Burton by the same result. Regarding the Premier League, Manchester United outclassed at home by 4-0 Everton and Crystal Palace, while in Southampton the team won by 1-0. Currently out of action are defender Rojo, midfielders Pogba and Fellaini and forward Ibrahimovic, while stopper Jones is not completely ready.

 Probable Lineups:
Liverpool: Mignolet – Gomez, Matip, Lovren, Moreno – Wijnaldum, Henderson, Emre Can – Salah, Firmino, Coutinho
Manchester United: de Gea – Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Young – Herrera, Matic – Mata, Mkhitaryan, Rashford – Lukaku

Olympique Lyon vs AS Monaco
Kick-off Time: 19:45 GMT 

Competition: French Ligue 1
Date: 13 October 2017
Venue: Groupama Stadium, Lyon
Coach, Genesi’s players, have only one defeat this season, which took place in the championship by the leading Paris Saint Germain away, but they have also played four draws in the last five matches. They did it twice in UEFA Europa league, against Apollon away and at home with the Italian team, Atalanta, while, in the championship, they played 3-3, against Dijon and Angers.
However, when taking into account that defeat at Prince’s Park, then it is quite clear why Olympique Lyon is currently only 8th in Ligue 1, which means that they should not lose any points in this derby with Monaco. As a result, the team has to fix their defence, since it has been said that they have received eight goals in the last three matches. Concerning players, defender Marcal and midfielder Cheikh will miss this match due to injuries, while the suspended striker Marcelo is still out of action.
On the other side and, as for the current French champions, this two-season break was certainly very welcome in their team, given that they had two very bad performances at home. First, AS Monaco was defeated in the UEFA Champions League with 3-0 by Porto, which has significantly reduced the team's chances of being ranked in the knockout phase, so they played only 1-1 in the championship against Montpellier, and their backlog for the leading PSG is again 03 points.
That is why coach Jardim now has the imperative of good result in duel with Olympique Lyon, which is on the other hand playing unpredictable, and it will be very interesting to see how this big French Ligue 1 derby will end. As for the players, the suspended midfielder, Fabinho, has no right to perform on Friday night, and Moutinho will probably fill that position, while defender Jorge and strikers Jovetic and Diakhaby are both still out of action.

The probable lineupsfor this game:
Lyon: Lopes – Rafael, Diakhaby, Morel, Mendy – Tousart, Ferri – Traore, Fekir, Depay – Diaz
AS Monaco: Subasic – Toure, Glik, Jemerson, Sidibe – Ghezzal, Tielemans, Moutinho, Lemar – Falcao, Keita

Olympique Lyon vs Atalanta Bergamo Europa League 28-09-2017

Lyon vs Atalanta 
Competition: UEFA Europa League

Date: 28 September 2017
Venue: Groupama Stadium, Decines-Charpieu 
Kick-off Time: 20:05 GMT 
Lyon team won just one game out of the last six games, with Guingamp in the French Ligue 1, and this worries their coach far more than anything else. Olympique Lyon was defeated just once in the same period, when it faced PSG away two rounds ago in the national championship, while last weekend it made 3-3 with Dijon at home after a fully open match.
OL Lyon currently occupies only the seventh place in the French Ligue 1 table, although it has just 03 points fewer than third-placed Bordeaux, and can rightly expect to push toward the top later on in the season. On the other hand, in the UEFA Europa League, Lyon needs to defeat Atalanta if it wants to stay in the race for the first two places in the group, and it is expected from OL  a total offensive from the first minute. Only two players are out of action, from before injured defenders: Rafael and Marcal.
Atalanta, on the other side, had a totally different opening of new season than their next opponent as they lost in first two rounds of Serie A to Roma and Napoli but then they used in the best possible way a bit easier schedule in the following four rounds as the team defeated Sassuolo and Crotone at home and drew away with Chievo and Sampdoria last weekend. These results improved their position in the table as Atalanta moved in the upper part of it and now can play this UEFA Europa League match with Olympique Lyon in much better atmosphere.
In addition to that, two weeks ago Atalanta Bergamo played perfectly their first returnee match in the UEFA Europa League as they defeated Everton at home by 3-0 and made a great step toward reaching the knockout phase with it. Atalanta must verify its good shape in next five games and certainly one of most difficult is this away one with Lyon. Only stopper Toloi and midfielder are on the list of injured players at the moment.

Probable lineups:
Olympique Lyon: Lopes – Tete, Marcelo, Morel, Mendy – Tousart, Ferri – Cornet, Fekir, Depay – Diaz
Atalanta: Berisha – Masiello, Caldara, Palomino – Castagne, de Roon, Freuler, Spinazzola – Ilisic, Gomez – Petagna

Arsenal - Koln UEFA Europa League 14/09/2017

0 التعليقات

Arsenal vs Koln 
Competition: UEFA Europa League
After being present, for many years, in the UCL, Arsenal can be seen this season only in the group phase of UEFA Europa league, and they are, just like Manchester United last year, regarded as the biggest favourites to win the competition. It would also automatically set Arsenal back in the Champions League, which will certainly firstly try to reach through the English Premier League, regardless of variable form displayed in first four rounds of the new season.
For now, Arsenal players won points only at home; they won at the Emirates Leicester and Bournemouth, while they lost away to Stoke and Liverpool. At the beginning of the season they managed to win the English Super Cup after defeating the champion, Chelsea, while now in the Europa League they certainly want to start with a victory, regardless of the number of changes in the starting line-up that coach Wenger announced. Absent players due to injuries are midfielder Coqeulin and Cazorla.
Koln team earned long-awaited return to the European scene after ending up last year at excellent fifth place in the German Bundesliga, but they couldn’t even dreamed about the UEFA Champions League as their backlog behind fourth-placed Hoffenheim was very big. Reaching the Europa League is a big success for the Koln, especially when known that just four years they played in the 2nd Bundesliga.
Coach, Stoger, has made of them a very competitive Bundesliga team from which was expected to continue with good results in the new season but that hasn’t materialised as they had a three-match losing streak. In fact, Koln is for the time being the only team in the Bundesliga that hasn’t won a single point in the first three rounds so the team will certainly have plenty of problems at the Emirates stadium, especially as midfielders: Jojic and Risse, and stopper Sorensen are not fully ready.

Date: 14 September 2017
Kick-off Time: 20:05 GMT
Venue: Emirates Stadium, London

Probable lineups:
Arsenal: Ospina – Holding, Mertesacker, Monreal – Bellerin, Elneny, Wilshere, Kolasinac – Walcott, Giroud, Iwobi

Monaco vs Leipzig
Competition: UEFA Champions League
Date: 13 September 2017

Kick-off Time: 19:45 GMT
Venue: Red Bull Arena, Leipzig
AS Monaco team has, before the start of the UEFA Champions League, suffered a “cold shower” and a difficult defeat in the derby of the Cote d'Azur and it was their first defeat in the season, if not counting the loss in the Super Cup at the very start when it was defeated by PSG. Monaco started the championship with three highly victories, while, in the fourth round, in the first derby of Cote d'Azur, mastered Olympique Marseille with 6-1. The opposite happened on Saturday against Nizza, when Monaco lost with 4-0.
The same team was on the field in these two appearances and it was a bit inconceivable that they played so differently, that they lost to Nizza in a similar way that they defeated Marseille, because they have received two goals this time in the first 20 minutes. In the end, however, Monaco sold player, Mbappe, to their biggest rival PSG, but it also brought two valuable reinforcements at the end of the transitional period: Balde and Jovetic. The latter entered from the bench in the last round, while Balde had not yet started. Now the refreshment could be player Ghezzal instead of Lemar.
RB Leipzig, on the other side, played a bad match at Gelsenkirchen at the begining of the season, and they lost to Schalke deservedly, but they showed strength in the next two rounds, and their matches have reminded their followers on those last season’s that brought them the title of vice-champion. Leipzig received the first goal in the second round against Freiburg and then scored four goals in the furious second half. In the last round, the team again dominated in Hamburg and scored goals again in the second half, this time two that were enough for 2-0 victory.
Coach, Hasenhuttl, decided to put Bernard on the right-back instead of Klostermann, while Bruma played instead of the injured player, Forsberg. The worst thing that happened in Hamburg for Leipzig was the injury of the midfielder, Keita, who will not be able to play in this duel, so the newcomer Kampl could jump in instead. Player, Forsberg, recovered and should return to the field, and Y.Poulsen could returntoo.

Probable Lineups:
AS Monaco: Subasic – Sidibe, Glik, Jemerson, Jorge – Moutinho, Fabinho, Lopes, Ghezzal – Diakhaby, Falcao
RB Leipzig: Gulacsi – Klostermann, Orban, Upamecano, Halstenberg – Demme, Kampl – Forsberg, Sabitzer – Y.Poulsen, Ti.Werner

Player Leonnel Messi is definitely in good shape as he scored both goals in victory over Deportivo Alaves 2-0 and he had a hat-trick against Espanyol.
Luis Suarez has fully recovered from his injury and he scored too, just as Pique although he commands the defence. The Catalans have definitely forgotten two painful defeats by  their old opponent, Real Madrid in the Super Cup, and now, beaming with self-confidence, can hardly wait to meet again their old rival and revenge for elimination last year. Dembele had his start after he came off the bench, and now he can easily be a starter.
Juventus, on the other side, also lost in the Super Cup at the beginning of the season, although only one match was played against Lazio in Rome. However, the team started the new season without a single mistake and won all 03 league matches. In fact, Juventus is more efficient the Catalans for one goal but it is interesting that otherwise very tough defence has already conceded two goals in the league and three in the Super Cup match. Everything went smoothly for the Italian team in home matches against Cagliari and Chievo which they sent home with 3-0 but Juventus was losing to Genoa 2-0 after just 7 minutes of match but they managed to turn the result up-side down by the end of match for the final 4-2.
Coach, Allegri, combines a bit the team although he is somewhat restricted by the  injures like it is the case with Chiellini and Marchisio, who will not play against the Catalans. Player, Barzagli, should be in the team, who hadn’t been a starter in first three rounds. Some players got rest against Chievo like: Buffon and Dybala, who came off the bench later on but nevertheless managed to score a goal and for the time being he is the first scorer in Juventus. Midfielder, Cuadrado, is not eligible to play this match because he is under suspension.

Japan vs Australia WC Qualification Asia 31/08/2017

0 التعليقات
Japan vs Australia
Competition: WC Qualification Asia
Date: 31 August 2017
Kick-off Time: 11:35 GMT
Venue: Saitama Stadium 2002
Japan has made two mistakes in the qualifiers, and, therefore, their placement the World Cup in Russia is still uncertain. The team should not have allowed themselves that defeat by UAE, or the draw against Iraq in the last round, because if they have celebrated in that match, they would now have more space for calculations. But now Japan must defeat Australia, given that they are playing away against Saudi Arabia in the last round, which is also their direct competitor.When it comes to composition, Halilhodzic has returned the experienced Hasebe to the team, who can play in multiple positions, and there is also midfielder, Getafe Shibasaki. Still, the key names in attack are: Honda, Okazaki, Kagawa, Osaka, Haraguchi and Inui, and Yoshida in defence and two side players, Sakai. The midfielder, Kiyotake, might be absent for this match.

Australia has played so far four games without a win, but these were not qualifying matches, because the team has no defeats in that part. The problem is that the Australian team has four wins and four draws, and therefore are currently only third, however, the surprising defeat of Saudi Arabia in the previous round has opened up more opportunities because Australia plays in their field against Thailand in the last round, where they should have trouble to get to victory. This means, that a draw in this match is almost as good as victory, given that Japan and Saudi Arabia will play against each other soon.
Saudi Arabia has celebrated over Australia in the previous round of these qualifiers with 3-2 after a great fight, after which Australia performed in the Confederations Cup, where they were defeated once and twice was a draw, with a defeat by Brazil in a friendly match. The composition for this match is almost the same as in the Confederations Cup and only the left back, Behich, is missing, as well as Jedinak, while player, Leckie, is in a really good shape.

Probable lineups for Japan vs Australia Match:
Japan: Kawashima-H.Sakai, Yoshida, Shoji, Nagatome-Hasebe, Yamaguchi-Haraguchi, Kagawa, Inui-Okazaki
Australia: Ryan-Milligan, McGowan, Sainsbury-Luongo, Irvine-Troisi, R.Kruse, Leckie, Cahill-Juric

Cameroon - Chile Confederations Cup 18/06/2017

0 التعليقات
Cameroon vs Chile
Kick-off Time: 19:00 GMT 
Competition: Confederations Cup
Date: 18 June 2017
Venue: Otkrytiye Arena, Moskva

This year's begining was great for Cameroon team and, at the African Cup of Nations in Gabon, the team managed to stay undefeated in all games so they eventually deservedly won the title of the continental champions, which led them to the Confederations Cup. It cannot be said that they were that great at the aforementioned African Cup of Nations, because they played 02 draws in the group and with one win they passed in the knockout stage, then they continued with very hard and uncertain matches, except for the semi-finals, where they defeated Ghana team with 2-0. Before that, Cameroon eliminated Senegal after the penalty, defeated Egypt with 2-1 in the big finals and, thus, won the new title of the best team on the “Black continent”. Since that finals, they have played 03 friendly games, but were defeated twice.
Particularly, painful was their defeat in the prelude for this competition because Colombia team has defeated them with 4-0. They also lost against Guinea, and defeated Tunisia and Morocco in the first qualifying round for the upcoming edition of the African Cup of Nations. When it comes to qualifiers for the World Cup, they are not doing good and in the first two rounds they have only played two draws, so the leader, Nigeria, already has 04 points more than them, and the game against that team at the end of August may be perhaps a decisive one. Until then, Cameroon want to present Africa in the best way possible in this competition and the biggest hope is their goalkeeper, Onan, and great strikers: Moukandjo and Aboubakar.
Chile is one of the teams for which it very important to win the trophy at the Confederations Cup, and the composition that has arrived in Russia certainly confirms it. Almost all of the best players are present, and perhaps the only absences worth mentioning are: the left-back Albornoz, the offensives Orellan and Valdivia, and midfielder Fernandes, but considering how many players are lacking in some other teams that is almost not a big handicap. It is important that they are complete in defensive part and in their recognizable composition, because they have their first midfielder: Vidal from Bayern, and striker from Arsenal, Sanchez, so it will be much easier for the others.
Chile team has succeeded after a long time to finally win Copa America, and then they repeated it all again in that jubilee edition and this has brought them to Russia this summer, while it is still not sure whether it will be seen in the World Cup of Russia next summer. They are currently in 4th position in South American qualifiers and this place takes them to the World Cup of Russia, but immediately below them is Argentina and it will be a taugh opponent because none of the teams is not far away on the table. They did not really played very good in their friendly matches before the Confederations Cup, and they defeated only Burkina Faso, while they played draws with Russia and then lost to Romania after they had the lead of 2-0, although they had one player less on the field due to suspension of: Medel.

Cameroon results of the last 5 matches:
05/02/17 Egypt 1 – 2 Cameroon

Borussia Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt DFB Pokal 27-05-2017 Final

Borussia Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt 
Competition: German DFB Pokal Final
Date: 27 May 2017
Kick-off Time: 19:00 GMT 
Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin

Borussia Dortmund cannot be happy with this season, because they have not got in the fight with Bayern Munich for the title of the champions, and they were not even 2nd in the end because Leipzig team has skipped them. They were fighting for 3rd place till the last round and they managed to be better than Hoffenheim, and they still wanted to do better than the quarterfinals in the UEFA Champions League, where they were stopped by Monaco, which is not exactly the European top. They still have this Cup finals and a chance to, at least, win this trophy and to improve the overall impression. In the semi-finals, Borussia Dortmund did a great job, because they mastered Bayern Munich in a brilliant match after turnover in the second half.
It is interesting that their last defeat in the championship was exactly in Munich from Bayern Munich at the begining of April, and after that they lost both duels from Monaco in the UEFA Champions League. In the championship they have made four wins and two draws for the end, with a final victory over Werder team in Dortmund (4-3). Their duo Aubameyang and Reus has taken things in their hands and solved the question of the winner, and they are particularly pleased that both of them are in good shape before the finals. Midfielder, Weigla will not be able to play in this duel, while players :Piszczek and Schmelzer are having problems, but they should take their places on the side positions.

Borussia Dortmund last 5 matches:
26/04/17 Bayern Munchen 2 – 3 Dortmund
29/04/17 Borussia Dortmund 0 – 0 Koln
06/05/17 Borussia Dortmund 2 – 1 Hoffenheim
13/05/17 Augsburg 1 – 1 Borussia Dortmund
20/05/17 Dortmund 4 – 3 Werder Bremen

This final is a big match for Eintracht Frankfurt, because this team did not have too many opportunities to win trophies in recent years, and everything that they have won in their history has been pretty long ago. In the near past, Eintracht Frankfurt had more problems with survival in the elite rank and it even happened that they get eliminated, and because of that fact, this placement in the finals was by itself a success, especially since they were for a long time in the upper part of the championship table. They lost their grid in the rest of the championship after the winter break, but not so much to endanger their status and it is clear that the team has been thinking only of this Cup final for some time.
Eintracht Frankfurt had one series of 10 matches, while, in the last 15 games, they only won once. It is clear that the Cup cannot be a justification and they are not in the best shape, however, they can shine in one match. In the last qualifying round, they close to defeat by Leipzig team at home, but they were saved with two goals in the finals, which were scored by reservist: Vallejo and Blum (2-2). That draw was a little boost after three defeats in a row, and when it comes to injury problems, players: Hasebe and Mascarella will not be able to play, while some other players are questionable, but they could still play.

Eintracht Frankfurt last 5 matches:
25/04/17 M’gladbach 1 – 1 P Eintracht
30/04/17 Hoffenheim 1 – 0 Eintracht
06/05/17 Eintracht 0 – 2 Wolfsburg
13/05/17 Mainz 4 – 2 Eintracht
20/05/17 Eintracht 2 – 2 RB Leipzig
Probable lineups:
Borussia Dortmund: Burki – Piszczek, Sokratis, Bartra, Schmelzer – Sahin – Dembele, Castro, Kagawa, Reus – Aubameyang
Eintracht Frankfurt: Hradecky – M.Hector, Abraham, Vallejo – Chandler, Gacinovic, Tawatha, Oczipka – Fabian, Hrgota – Seferovic

Barcelona - Deportivo Alaves Copa del Rey Final 27-05-2017

0 التعليقات
Barcelona vs Deportivo Alaves - Competition: Copa del Rey Final
Date: 27 May 2017
Kick-off Time: 20:30 GMT
Venue: Estadio Vicente Calderon, Madrid 
Probable lineups:
FC Barcelona: ter Stegen – Mascherano, Pique, Umtiti, J.Alba – Busquets, Iniesta, Rakitić – Messi, P.Alcacer, Neymar
Deportivo Alaves: Pacheco – Femenia, Ely, Feddal, Hernandez – M.Garcia, Llorente – Mendez, Camarasa, Moi Gomez – Deyverson
Of the 03 wanted trophies this season, Barcelona FC may only win one, which has the least value. The team was winning the King’s Cup in the previous two seasons, but together with the champion title, while, two seasons ago, it added the UEFA Champions League title to that and it was a dream season they wanted to repeat. In the UEFA Champions League Barcelona team could have been eliminated in the round of sixteen, but they celebrated over PSG, although they were immediately in the quarter-finals eliminated by Juventus team and they have not scored any goals in those two duels. They were second in La Liga all the time, and they were in the leading position only when Real Madrid team had one match less and that is why it must be said that they did not even deserve to defend the title.
Barcelona did everything in the finish of the championship and they won all their opponents, starting from El Clasico, however, Real Madrid did not make the wrong step and that is why the title went to Madrid. Barcelona team has won the Super Cup at the very beginning of the season and they can now come to this consolation trophy, although it is really questionable how much they would be consolidated by the victory over Deprortivo Alaves. For coach, Enrique, the good news is that players: Pique and Mascherano have recovered and will play in this duel, while L.Suarez and S.Roberto are both still out of action.
Deportivo Alaves has a great season and they only improve it by winning the trophy, which would considering their opponent in the finals be a great sensation. The team is aware of this from Basque, but that does not mean that they will surrender without a big fight, because it should not be forgetten that Deportivo Alaves is the only team that managed to defeat Barcelona team at Camp Nou this season. True, they did not score anything at their stadium, allthough that game did not mean anything at all, and Deportivo Alaves was already thinking about the Cup.
At the beginning of month February, Deportivo Alaves secured the final over Celta Vigo and since then their results were quite variable, although they were very good at the very end and it is clear that their form was timed for this match, which is the second most important match in the history of the club, after the famous UEFA Cup finals of 2001 when they lost to Liverpool with 5-4. The team has no trophies in their showcases and this is their second opportunity, but again there is a big obstacle ahead of them and they will have to play a great game. They have achieved 04 wins and 03 draws in the finish of La Liga, while they were at the beginning of April defeated last time by Espanyol team. Coach, Pellegrino, has no major problems with absenteeism and only center-back Laguardia is out of action.

Barcelona last 5 matches results:
26/04/17 Barcelona 7 – 1 Osasuna
29/04/17 Espanyol 0 – 3 Barcelona

Manchester United vs Celta Vigo Semi-Final Europa League 11-05-2017

0 التعليقات
Manchester United - Celta Vigo
Competition: UEFA Europa League
Date: 11 May 2017
Kick-off Time: 20:05 GMT
Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester, UK.
Probable lineups:
Manchester United: Romero – Valencia, Bailly, Blind, Darmian – Fellaini, Herrera – Mkhitaryan, Pogba, Lingard – Rashford
Celta Vigo: Alvarez – Mallo, Roncaglia, Cabral, Jonny – Radoja, Hernandez – Aspas, Wass, Sisto – Guidetti
 The main favourite to win the UEFA Europa League this season, Manchester United team , has done a big job seven days ago in Vigo, as it defeated Celta Vigo 1-0 after a goal scored by Rashford
For sure, no one in Manchester doesn’t want to consider such scenario, especially as the United triumphed in Vigo by 1-0 due to Rashford’s excellent free kick in the 67 minute. Overall, the both teams didn’t show much in the first semi-final match of the UEFA Europa League, although coach, Mourinho, can be far more satisfied than his counterpart from Celta Vigo, given that he, in fact, set a more defensive tactic, all with an objective to preserve its goal intact in the first leg.
Since coach, Mourinho, got lucky after young striker, Rashford, free kick, it is believed that he won’t make many changes in tactic and the team that will play the second leg. Because of that he rested most of standards starters last weekend when they met Arsenal team in London. The Red Devils lost that match by 2-0, so it is now totally clear that the UEFA Europa League is far more important for Mourinho than the English Premiership, in which the Manchester United still has chance to reach the Champions League. Added that out of action are injured defenders: Rojo and Shaw, midfielder Young and forward Ibrahimovic.
Celta Vigo team can be only sorry for the conceded goal in the first semi-final match of the UEFA Europa League as they definitely deserved with their attitude and commitment to, at least, pull a draw before the second leg at the Old Trafford. Apart from that, ahead of them is new 90 minutes and the coach, Berizzo, has announced far more aggressive approach in the midfield, and he certainly hopes that the defence could repeat a fairly good performances from the first match, given that Celta Vigo received the only goal from the free kick.
Besides losing to Manchester United, Celta Vigo has a four-game losing streak in La Liga but this team has already secured its place in the middle of the table and it is no wonder whycoach, Berizzo, narrowly focuses right at the UEFA Europa League. Last weekend Celta Vigo went to Malaga and it played there with totally changed team compared to the one that faced the Red Devils, which resulted with high defeat of 3-0. Now at the Old Trafford it is expected to see again Celta’s strongest team at the pitch, while out of action are only from before injured goalkeeper Blanco and forward Rossi.

Monaco vs Manchester City Champions League - March 15, 2017

0 التعليقات

Monaco vs Manchester City  - Competition: UEFA Champions League
The first leg between these two teams turned out to be a thriller. AS Monaco team led 3-2 at one point, missed a penalty and caused Man City serious problems for 70 minutes but their shaky defense conceded three goals in the last 20 minutes and inally lost 5-3. A 2-0 victory for AS Monaco would be enough here and it is not impossible for a team that go into this match in fine form having lost just one of their last 17 competitive games. Furthermore, Monaco have scored 50 in their first 14 Ligue 1 games on their own pitch this term, nearly double that of PSG! They are the highest-scoring side across Europe's five major leagues this season.
Centre-back Kamil Glik is suspended but Jemerson is available and should start alongside Andrea Raggi at centre back. Falcao is an injury doubt for Monaco. Should he be absent Valere Germain will earn a recall and partner the youngester Kylian Mbappe upfront. Tiemouè Bakayoko and Joao Moutinho are in contention for a starting berth in midfield. Boschilia and Guido Carrillo are both ruled out for Monaco, who are otherwise at full strength.
Man City team is unbeaten in the last 11 matches in all competitions, winning 8. Since heavy 4-0 defeat at the hands of Everton, the Citizens have won four and drawn two of their last six league outings. Furthermore, Guardiola's men progressed in the FA Cup with a 2-0 win at Middlesbrough last Saturday, meaning they have now gone six without conceding a single goal on their travels. In the Champions League group stage Man City lost 4-0 to FC Barcelona and drew at Monchengladbach (1-1) and Celtic (3-3).Kevin De Bruyne could be dropped from the engine room to make way for a defensively-stronger midfield, which will likely include Yaya Toure and Fernandinho. Up front Sergio Aguero will be supported by Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling and David Silva. Vincent Kompany is a fitness doubt while Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan are the only long-term absentees.

Arsenal vs Bayern Munich
Competition: UEFA Champions League 2016-17
Date: Tuesday, 7th March, 19:45 GMT
Stadium: Emirates Stadium

Arsenal team are set to crash out of the Champions League at the first knockout round for the seventh consecutive season. The Gunners visited Munich for the first leg a couple of weeks ago and they suffered a 5-1 hammering defeat. This means they have to win this return game 4-0 in order to reach the quarter-finals of the UCL. They won 2-0 the last time they entertained Bayern Munich at the Emirates Stadium but a similar result won't be enough to progress. Furthremore, a timid display at Liverpool on Saturday saw Arsene Wenger's side beaten 3-1, meaning they  have lost four of their last six, with one of their two wins coming at lowly Sutton United in the FA Cup. The Gunners are 5th in the Premier League standings and could decide to focus all their energies on chasing a domestic top 4 finish.
Santi Cazorla and Mohamed Elneny are both ruled out, and Aaron Ramsey is not ready to play a high-level game like this. As a result, Granit Xhaka and Francis Coquelin are expected to start in midfield. Mesut Ozil missed the Liverpool match through illness and while is his back in training, will miss out on Tuesday. Olivier Giroud will spearhead the attack while Alexis Sanchez will be reinstated in the offensive midfield trio alongside Alex Iwobi and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The likes of Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck and Lucas Perez provide further options up front. David Ospina can be expected to start between the sticks in order to give Petr Cech some rest.
Bayern Munich team, who eliminated Arsenal in the last-16 in 2012/13 and 2013/14 seasons, are on a fine run of form having failed to win just two of their last 16 competitive fixtures. The Bavarians are firing all cylinders in recent weeks - Hamburg were dismembered in an 8-0 stroll, and Schalke were swatted aside 3-0 in the DFB Cup quarter-finals. Carlo Ancelotti's men went on to beat 3-0 FC Koln at the weekend, extending their lead at the top of the Bundesliga to seven points. Bayern suffered two away fixtures in the UCL group stage, 1-0 at Atletico Madrid and more surprisingly 3-2 at Rostov and they have won just one of their last six UCL road trips.
Philipp Lahm is suspended for the Bavarians and will be replaced by Rafinha while  centre-back Jerome Boateng remains sidelined. The likes of Mats Hummels, Xabi Alonso, Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery could all return to the starting XI having been benched last time out with the Arsenal clash in mind. Robert Lewandowski, of course, will play as central striker. Renato Sanches, Douglas Costa and goalkeeper Manuel Neuer are all major doubts.

Probable lineups:
SSC Napoli: Reina – Hysaj, Albiol, Koulibaly, Ghoulam – Zielinski, Jorginho, Hamsik – Callejon, Mertens (Milik), Insigne.
Real Madrid: Navas – Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo – Kroos, Casemiro, Modric – Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo.
