Liverpool vs Watford Premier League - 17 March, 2018

Liverpool vs Watford - Competition: Premier League

Liverpool team fell to a disappointing 2-1 defeat at the hands of Man United in their last game but remain 4th in the EPL table, with a 4 points margin over 5th-placed Chelsea. Prior to that, the Reds secured their qualification to the Champions League quarter finals thanks to a goalless draw at Anfield Road against FC porto (the first leg in Portugal saw Jurgen Klopp's men win 5-0). After 15 league games at home, Liverpool are yet to lose, and they have won nine times.
Nathaniel Clyne is the only reported injury concern for Liverpool this weekend. Jurgen Klopp may decide to hand recalls to Jordan Henderson and Joel Matip for this clash. The former should replace either James Milner or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in central midfield while the latter is an alternative to Dejan Lovren at centre-back. No changes are expected up front where Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Man+ are expected to feature from the off.
Watford team are closing on on securing their English Premier League status for another season. They sit 10th in the table, with a 9 points margin over Crystal Palace and Stoke City in 18th and only eight games remaining. The Hornets have a strong home record with 13 points earned in the last 5 outings at Vicarage Road but their away record is pretty poor. They put in a rather uninspiring performance against Arsenal team as they were hammered 3-0 at Emirates last weekend. The Hornets have lost 7 of their last 8 away matches in EPL and failed to scored in the last 4 on the travel.
New Hornets' manager Javi Gracia will be without eight players for the trip to Anfield. Kiko Femenía may continue in an advanced position on the right flank at the expense of Andre Carrillo. Richarlison will be moved to a central role, with Roberto Pereyra stationed on the left wing. Troy Deeney should keep his place as central striker. Younes Kaboul, Molla Wague, Tom Cleverley and Christian Kabasele all remain sidelined, while Nathaniel Chalobah and Gerard Deulofeu are long-term absentees.

Paris Saint-Germain vs Real Madrid 06-03-2018 Champions League

0 التعليقات
PSG vs Real Madrid - Competition: UEFA Champions League
Date: 6 March 2018 - Kick-off Time: 19:45 GMT - 20:45 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes, Paris
Paris Saint-Germain team unsurprisingly sit top of the Ligue 1 table with a 14 point gap over AS Monaco and their home record comprises of 14 straight league wins with 54 goals scored and 9 conceded.. They were defeated by a 3-1 score-line in the reverse leg at Bernabeu, conceding two goals in the last 7 minutes of the match. Since the first leg meeting PSG have won Ligue 1 fixtures at home to Strasbourg (5-2), Marseille (3-0) and most recently 2-0 at Troyes. Unay Emery's men boast a strong home record in Europe - they are unbeaten in their last 12 Champions League matches in Paris and scored 15 goals in 3 home games in the group stage this season including a 3-0 win over Bayern Munich team.
Star player Neymar is out for at least two months while Kylian Mbappe can recover from an ankle injury in time to play on Tuesday. Neymar's injury should present Ángel Di Maria with an opportunity to prove a point against his former club, as the Argentine is expected to lead the line alongside Kylian Mbappé and Edinson Cavani. Thiago Silva is expected to make a return to the lineup after missing the first leg. Marquinho is also a doubt with a thigh problem but Dani Alves is expected to make a return. In midfield, Marco Verratti will be the playmaker, wit Adrien Rabiot and Lo Celso on his flanks. Timothy Weah, the son of Liberia president and ex-PSG and AC Milan team striker George Weah, could play at some stage.

After a 1-0 defeat at Espanyol, Real Madrid team returned to winning wins with a 3-1 victory at home to Getafe at the weekend, to remain in third place in La Liga behind Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. This result makes it six wins from their last seven games, with them scoring an impressive 23 goals in that period. In the group stage matches in UCL, the Blancos won both at Dortmund (3-1) and Apoel (6-0) either side of a 3-1 defeat at Tottenham. The defense remains a concern as Zinedine Zidane's men have kept only a clean sheet in the last 11 games in all competitions.
Zinedine Zidane has had to do without Toni Kroos and Luka Modric in recent weeks, and while both men returned to training on Sunday, this game will surely come too soon for either to start. Mateo Kovacic should start alongside Casemiro and Isco in the middle of the park.Marcelo also returned to training with the first-team but Theo Hernandez is expected to get the nod as left-back. Gareth Bale played in the last fixture against Getafe and is fit enough to lead the line alongside Karim Benzema and Ronaldo.
Probable lineups:
Paris Saint-Germain: Areola – Dani Alves, T. Silva, Kimpembe, Kurzawa – Verratti, Rabiot, Draxler – di Maria, Cavani, Mbappe (Pastore)
Real Madrid: Navas – Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo – Casemiro, T. Kroos, Modric – Ronaldo, Bale, Asensio.
