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

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
06/05/17 Barcelona 4 – 1 Villarreal
14/05/17 Las Palmas 1 – 4 Barcelona
21/05/17 Barcelona 4 – 2 Eibar

Deportivo Alaves last 5 matches results:
27/04/17 Deportivo Alaves 0 – 0 Eibar
30/04/17 Real Betis 1 – 4 Deportivo Alaves
07/05/17 Deportivo Alaves 1 – 0 Athletic Club
14/05/17 Deportivo Alaves 3 – 1 Celta
20/05/17 Leganes 1 – 1 Deportivo Alaves

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.
