Geylang International vs Hougang United, Singapore, S league

Match Predictions: X (Draw Game)

Geylang International vs Hougang United (Singapore, S league)Geylang International face at home Hougang United on Saturday. The game is part of Matchday 8 of Singapore’s S league.

Both teams are in the middle of the table. Geylang is 6th, while their opponents are 5th placed. The distance between them is only two points. This means if home side win on Saturday they will go 5th just in front of Hougang.

In last 5 matches Geylang’ form is fluctuating – balance: 2 wins, 3 loses. The team crashed 0:4 at home versus Tampines, but after this bad result came 2 consecutive wins – against Young Lions (0:2) and Brunei (2:0). In the last match for April Geylang lost on away from Home United (3:o). This game will be remembered with 2 sent off players from The Eagles and 2 penalties awarded for the winners. Another loss came in the last match. Japan side Albirex Niigata won at Jalan Besar (0:1) to head the table nowadays.

Hougang United’ away performance contrasts to home. At home Hougang suffered defeat one time – 0:2 versus Home United on 9th April. But there is only one win on away from 4 matches. Most recently Hougang beat Brunei 0:2.

Both teams met in the opening match for the campaign, as Hougang played better and secured win – 2:0. Kogure and Hussain helped their team to win 3 points with 2 goals.

The game can be predicted hardly. It will be tough match, but I think Geylang have advantage as home side. Despite that Hougang have better players in the squad and after most recent win they will be more confident. Draw game is risky bet, but it’s not devoid of logic.

AS Roma vs Juventus-Italy-Serie AThe winner of Serie A for this season can be determined in the end of the week. Juventus and Roma are main contenders for Scudetto and they are facing each other on Sunday at Olimpico.

If Roma win the derby, The Wolves will keep their chances for the title, but they will have to pray Juventus to won no more than 1 point in the last two matches. Furthermore, Roma need only win in every game.

If Juventus don’t lose their visit in Rome, The Old Lady will be crowned as champion for the current campaign and the remaining two games will not matter.

Roma are now second in the table, 7 points down to Juventus. Previously, Giallorossi defeat AC Milan on away (1:4), but before that they failed to beat Lazio (1:3) and Atalanta (1:1).  These two mistakes decreased to minimal Roma’ hopes for Scudetto. Team’ and league’ top scorer Edin Dzeko is missing the meeting due to calf injury. It’s likely to see playing legend Totti on the pitch among the starting line-up. Salah and Nainggolan are in bad form.

Juventus will defend their title if they don’t lose the upcoming game. In the middle of the week we saw how strong are Bianconeri. There aren’t any weaknesses in this team. Goalkeeper, defence, wingers, midfields and forwards from world class. Juventus eliminated AS Monaco and qualify for UEFA Champions League final. After wonderful recent performance, players will be confident for the next match. Sami Khedira is doubtful for the clash, but his replacement Marchisio is as good as him.

Expectations are for opened, attacking game, fast tempo and direct style of play. Roma have nothing to lose in this match and need a win. I think away side will accept playing in their half and may be Alegri players will use fast counter-attacks. I think this tactical approach will bring the title to Torino.

Match forecast: 2 (Juventus to win)

Sevilla FC vs Real Sociedad

Venue: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan

Sevilla FC vs Real Sociedad (Spain, LaLiga Santander)

Match Predictions: 1 (Sevilla to win)

Sevilla FC vs Real Sociedad - Spain LaLiga SantanderSpanish side Real Sociedad is flying near 1000 kilometres to visit Sevilla for LaLiga Santander game, which is first for Matchday 36. The match is scheduled for Friday evening. There are 3 fixtures remaining until the end of the 2016-17 campaign and both teams are fighting for better place in the group.

Home side Sevilla currently holds the 4th place with 68 points, but Jorge Sampaoli has dreams about higher position. Atletico Madrid are just 3 points up to Andalusians and if they want upper place, they need to beat their next opponents. Furthermore, Atletico must lose at least once till the end. Sevilla went to that situation on Monday, when was lost the visit in Malaga (4:2). Los Blanquirrojos performed well in the first half, but in the second Malaga scored 3 times to defeat them.

Away team Real Sociedad is 7th with 61 points and it is one of three clubs that are battling for 2 spots (5th and 6th) that guarantee Europe League participation in the next season. The other two clubs are Athletic Bilbao and Villareal. Difference between three sides is only 2 points. Real defeated Deportivo, Valencia and Granada and nowadays is so close to Europe League. Before the three wins, San Sebastians lost (3:2) to title contenders Barcelona on away, but fans enjoyed the play and were impressed.

Both teams are strong in attack and this is fundamental for the overall performance. They are scoring much and we expect over 2,5 goals in the match. Another option is both teams to score at least one goal. The game is important for both teams and we think the home side has advantage, because Sevilla has more class.

Match forecast: 1 (Sevilla to win)

A day before the boxing gala evening “Last Countdown,” American boxer Kevin Johnson struggled to defeat Bulgarian champion Kubrat Pulev and make him abandon the match for the Intercontinental Title of the World Boxing Association in Heavyweight.

“I’m not afraid of Pulev,” said Kevin Johnson (30-7-1, 14 knockouts).

“He’s a cartoon character,” says Cobra’s rival. “I’ll break him on Friday and make him give up.” He could try a lot of times, but there will be a moment when he will say, “that’s enough.”

“This may happen in the fifth round, may happen in the seventh or in the 12th. The only thing that matters is that I will take the belt home”,  Johnson said.

During the boxing gala evening Kubrat Pulev will be supported by his loyal Bulgarian fans. The 37-year-old American, however, plans to use this for his own benefit by trying to revive his career with a victory against the mandatory boxing contender of the International Boxing Federation.

“The more noisy they are, and the more they call for Kubrat Pulev, the more energy I get,” Johnson says.
“I can chant his name, but I will steal this energy and when he loses, what will they say then? People better start to support me now because I know I have fans here,” says the American.

Do not miss the match between Kubrat Pulev and Kevin Johnson on April 28, Friday at 7.00 pm

Manchester United vs Chelsea

Kick-off: 16:30 CET
Venue: Old Trafford

Manchester United vs Chelsea (England, Premier League)

Match Predictions: Under 2,5 goals in the match

Manchester United vs Chelsea-England Premier LeagueManchester United welcome Chelsea at Old Trafford in the derby match of the week in England. The game will be played on Sunday.

There are 7 games remaining till the end of the season in Premier League. The Red Devils need to show consistency in the next games to complete the mission – place in “top 4”, which guarantees participation in Champions League next season. They are currently 5th with 4 points less to their main rivals – Manchester City. United rarely lose matches – only 3 times in the league and that sounds well for the performance in defence. But they played in 12 draw games – most in the PL along with Middlesbrough. Lastly, Jose Mourinho’ people beat 3:0 Sunderland on away. They were dominating on the pitch in most of the time and the win was deserved. However, Manchester Utd failed to achieve wins in two of three previous games – versus Everton and WBA – both home matches.

Chelsea are on the top of the table with 7 points more than Tottenham Hotspur. The Blues need to reduce to minimal the “mistakes”, which they make on the road to the title. Example for “mistake” is the home match against Crystal Palace, played on April 1st, when Chelsea were defeated 1:2. Since this match, The Blues outplayed Manchester City 2:1 and Bournemouth 1:3.  With this two tough wins the team from London is closer to the title than any other of the opponents.

Both teams met each other before month and Chelsea as home team defeat United 1:0. Conte, Mourinho and the players know much the opponent and perhaps there won’t be any surprises. Good options for betting are under 2,5 goals and draw game on the half time.

Match forecast: Under 2,5 goals in the match

Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund

Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund – Germany, Bundesliga

Match Predictions: Over 2,5 goals in the match

Bayern Munich vs Borussia DortmundBayern Munich meets Borussia Dortmund in the derby match of the week in Germany. The game is scheduled on Saturday.

After great performance in all 15 games, played this year, Bayern finally lost. The team, that ended this strike, was Hoffenheim. Hoffe got past Bayern in the middle of the week. Andrey Kramaric scored the only goal in the match to upset Ancelotti and co. But Bavarians can afford themselves losing points, because they have advantage of 13 points in front of Red Bull Leipzig. However, if we ignore the most recent game Bayern is very strong team, with no weaknesses. The only problem may be is the injury of Manuel Neuer. There is no doubt he is better than his replacement Sven Ulreich, but past 4 games, which Bayern won, speak enough – 4 clean sheets.

Borussia Dortmund also lost a game, but at Olympiastadion, in Berlin and before near a month (against Hertha, 2:1). Since then, Borussia won over Lotte (Cup), Ingolstadt (1:0) and Hamburger SV (3:0) and draw versus Schalke 04 on away (1:1). Borussia is fourth in Bundesliga, but just two points behind second RB Leipzig. Hoffenheim is between both teams. “The Yellow-Blacks” are wonderful, if we are talking about their attack or midfield. Manager Thomas Tuchel is facing problems in the defence. Borussia have conceded 28 goals this season so far. For comparison, Bayern has double less.

There aren’t suspended players, who will miss the match. I think Ancelotti will make some changes in the starting line-up. Phillip Lahm, Joshua Kimmich and Franch Ribery are likely to replace Coman, Sanchez and Rafinha. Emre Mor didn’t play well against Hamburger and may be will start from the bench in the next match.

Both teams are scoring too much goals. Dortmund have some problems in defence and probably first choice for Bayern – Neuer, will not be able to play. So, the home team is also weakened. Bayern have secure lead and this is premise for opened attacking football. For Borusssia the game is much more important. Their side prefers direct football. All of these things are great precondition for match that will end with many goals.

Match forecast: Over 2,5 goals in the match

Balestier Khalsa vs Young LionsBalestier Khalsa and Young Lions play in their fourth game for 2017 in S league on Sunday.

Both teams still have no points in their active and this is the end of the negative strike for either Balestier Khalsa or Young Lions.

Balestier lost all three previous games. Firstly, they lost to Warriors (1:2), then Geylang International beat them 2:0 and most recently Tampines Rovers defeat Balestier on away (0:1). The Tigers played fairly well both in first and third fixtures, but weren’t winning side. Only in the second game, which was on away versus Geylang they were outplayed. Interesting fact is these two games, the team performed well, were at home – Toa Payoh Stadium.

Young Lions put poor performances in past meetings. While their next opponents lost three times with total result 1:5, they are far from this “achievement”. Club record in 2017 is 0-0-3 with goal difference 1:13. This means that Lions will be one of the weakest sides in the league. But this is not true. Club is among the weaker teams for near ten years. Every campaign the Young Lions are in the bottom part of the table since 2007. Most successful season for the team for these 10 years is in 2009, when they finished 8th from 10 teams.

Next game is third on away for Lions. Most recently Hougang played better and caught the three points after 2:0. Before that solid Home United showed class for 6 goals on display.

One player is missing the game. It’s about suspended Balestier’ Sheikh Abdul Hadi, who was sent off versus Tampines Rovers. Although that, Balestier is stronger team and will have home advantage ahead their “neighbors”. Our prediction is a win for Khalsa and first three points in the active of Marko Kraljevic’s team.

Match forecast: 1 (Balestier to win)

Wellington Phoenix vs Newcastle JetsAustralian side Newcastle Jets is travelling to New Zealand’s capital Wellington to play Wellington Phoenix in a game from A league’s matchday 24.

Wellington Phoenix are holding the 7th place with 23 points before the game. There is just a point difference between The Nix and their opponents. The Nix lost 3:1 their previous away match against Western Sidney Wanderers. Before that they draw 3:3 Perth Glory at home Westpac Stadium and beat 4th-placed Brisbane Roar on away (1:2). 7 scored goals in three games means Phoenix are on form. The fact that all of these 7 goals are scored by different players completes the picture in the team.

Newcastle Jets are positioned one place down to Wellington Phoenix. The Jets are on poor form and for this statement speak their recent results. Disappointing away loss 4:0 against Melbourne Victory, home loss versus Brisbane Roar, draw game with Central Coast and loss versus bottom-positioned Adelaide United closed the distance between Newcastle and Adelaide to 4 points. In past two games two keepers were used, but both didn’t impressed. May be the problem in this team is the defence playing from all players on the pitch.

Jets need to stop their free falling, but on Sunday they are facing tough team, who plays hard, particularly on home matches, so I think current form is fundamental for the clash. The odds are high for both teams. Chances for home win are rated 2.40-2.80, for away – 2.50 – 2.90. Draw game – 3.00-3.20.
