Hello folks, seems like i've been mixed up with some spammers and banned for no reason but now my account has been restored. The only problem is that all my previous posts and threads have been deleted but there's nothing to be done about that.
We go on with hope to continue that nice winning streak we had before
IRELAND - SWEDEN
There are few options i have in mind here. First of all is Ibrahimovic to score option - he's scored 5 out of last 6 Sweden goals, if there is to be a penalty he'll take it probably and he always spends whole 90 minutes on the field. Some bookies offer up to 2.90 (at least my local bookies) which is excellent.
Also DNB seems quite nice with 1.85 and i'm going for it. I really dont think Ireland can do more than to take a point here. What do you think people?
Btw here are some probable lineups and missing players
IRELAND (missing McGeady, Kelly, St Ledger, Hendrick)
Forde - Coleman, Dunne, O'Shea, Wilson - Walters, Whelan, McCarthy, McClean - Long, Keane
SWEDEN (missing Elm, Granqvist, Bengtsson)
Isaksson - Lustig, Nilsson, Antonsson, Olsson - Wernbloom, Ekdal - Larsson, Ibrahimovic, Kacaniklic - Elmander
Sweden won after all but no goal from Ibrahimovic who was assisting instead of scoring :/ Anyways some nice info for today.
WC qualifiers Africa: Gambia - Tanzania
Hosts are eyeing a revenge and Tanzania is coming in this match without seven key players including three best strikers, most experienced defender and three important midfielders (Samata, Ulimwengu, Bocco, Abubakar, Athuman, Yondani, Kapombe).
Odds on home team victory are around 1.80..still worth a shot.
MLS league: LA Galaxy - Colorado Rapids
Los Angeles will miss their two best strikers Donovan and Keane who scored 12 out of last 13 Galaxy's goals. Instead young Villareal and McBean will step up. They are also without first goalkeeper Penedo, and chief in defense Gonzalez. Colorado lost only once in last 10 outings and they could surprise here as they dont have much problems with absences except for Torres.
handicap +1 on away team..or X2 is also equivalent
Corinthias – Nautico Recife
Corinthias is one of the very best teams in the league with very wide and quality bench while Nautico is by far the worst team in the league.
Nautico has obvious problems with quality, especially in the offensive part which is proven by fact that they’ve only scored one goal in the last seven games (nine in whole season). They already had a tight schedule they couldn’t cope with and now they also had some postponed matches to play and all that is a real nightmare for them. This will be their third match in only six days and in last two they lost on home turf without even scoring a goal. These days they’ve also made their FIFTH switch on coaching position in the last five months and it is most obvious that the problem is not in staff but in lack of quality in player roster.
Corinthias has some problems with injuries for this match and will miss kinds of Pato and Emerson but there are still Romarinho and Danilo and I have absolutely no doubt that they will find the way to Nautico’s net.
Hosts have excellent defense which is allowing only 0.44 goals per match and I don’t see how Nautico who scored only once in last seven away games could be a threat here, moreover because Corinthias received only one goal on home turf since end of May (including all competitions!!!!). I expect that trend to continue.
Bet: Away team NOT to score
Equivalent is also home team to win without receiving a goal which can be found at around 2.00 but I prefer first option which is safer.
CYPRUS – SLOVENIA (WCQ Europe)
Slovenia and Cyprus played seven times so far and not once did Cyprus manage to win. There is absolutely no reason why that trend should be broken today. Their motivation is not on the highest level as they don’t have even theoretical chance to go to Brasil and they have a lot of problems with absences. Striker Cristofi, defender Christoua and winger Efrem are all out including one of their most dangerous offensive player from APOEL, Aloneftis who has a suspension. As for their play it is enough to say that they haven’t scored in more than 340 minutes.
Slovenia on the other hand will be boosted by the return of their captain Cesar and they still have a chance to advance at least to play-offs if they win all the remaining three matches. They’ve had a bit of luck beating Albania recently but their stable and organized, moreover disciplined play will be enough to get them all three points here against last-placed Cyprus.
NAUTICO – GREMIO
Nautico so far managed to collect only 9 points which is 13 less than they need to get to safe zone so in reality no one believes they will be able to stay up in this league. Even the chairman decided to give up – after they fired their last coach (fifth time this season) they decided not to invest in new coaching names so they left the team in hands of inexperienced former assistant.
In last round they’ve managed to get a point away in Corinthias but it was lack of efficiency from opponents side that caused the goalless draw. Only spark of “creativity” from Nautico was kicking the ball as far from their goal as they can. That kind of play brought them only one goal in last 8 rounds, and today they’ll be without two of their best strikers Carioca and Rogerio (suspension and injury).
Gremio is on the other hand on second place, only six points behind leading Cruzeiro and today they’ll try to shorten the gap because Cruzeiro is also going on difficult away trip to Goias where Gremio was also defeated two rounds before. That defeat was the only “black spot” in Gremio’s form – in last seven outings they won six. They do have some absences but those are not so important for the team and are mostly related to defense line which inefficient Nautico is not capable to put in danger. Since they appointed coach Gaucho they’ve found their winning formula and I really don’t see how Nautico will be able get two consecutive positive results against top teams – they wouldn’t be on the last spot if they are really able to do so.
ATLETICO MG - CORITIBA
Atletico is on the edge of falling into danger zone and therefore they have an imperative to win today and key factors should be the home turf and absent players in the visiting team. In home team strikers Donizeti and Guilherme are fit after injuries and should provide enough firepower upfront today when Tardelli is expected to get some rest.
On the other hand there is probably no team in Brazil with one player standing apart and above his teammates like Coritiba with Alex. He did not even travel for this away match, even though he is not injured according to Betprepare betting site. Other than Alex, several more players will be missing today in all lines, including defensive midfielder Junior Urso and the important defensive pair Leandro Almeida and Victor Ferraz. Because of this, the Coritiba defense will feature three players with only eight matches played in total between them.
Odds on home win are already down so I’ll go with home team to score some goals. Atletico has scored at least two goals in six out of last seven home games and I expect the same today.
Bet: Home team over 1,5 goals
