I love it when it is time to watch the Champions League games. It is not a pleasure only, it is a great passion. You might already have taken a bet or just taken a glass/ken of beer and the rest is just excitement. The referee blows the whistle and all the rest cannot be described with words…
Yesterday night Juventus suffered a lot in Turin. Without no doubt, Spurs are very, very strong and balanced team. Actually, at the end of the game, they were very close to take the victory in Italy. But this is football and 2-2 was fair enough result at the end.
Let,s try to make it game by game. The first one is Real Madrid vs- PSG I like and I am a fan of Real Madrid, but they will suffer a lot I guess. Neymar, Cavani, and M’Bappe are just too dangerous and fast for the defense of the WHite Ballet. Zizu is close to the exit door in Bernabeu and he will try to motivate his boys to play a really good game. Versus the French, it will be a huge derby. I think that Bale and Ronaldo have very big problems and cannot concentrate on the pitch. On my opinion, the game is draw result or win for PSG.
About the next game – Klopp revived the dreams of all the fans of Liverpool and made all the team play like one. It is just tremendous. I am a Chelsea fan, but Liverpool is doing a fantastic job this year. They can take points from Porto.
In a conclusion, visiting teams enter as favorites in those two games from Champions League. I suggest you bet on over 2,5 goals and both teams to score in both games and both halves.
When it is about derbies , all fans and people just wait wait hearts close to collision. It is not only about win or lost game, it is not only about the fights during and after the match. It is like the religion you are fighting for and the beliefs you are ready to die for.
It is about conviction and mind set. I mean that derby is the highest point, the main battle between ideas and people. It is like you are in the Colloseo and you should pick one side – blue or red. I admire and admit, when someone is ready to die for its beliefs.
All of us have friends form the opposite site. But when it comes to derby days, we are enemies in the good sense of the word. Those 22 players on the pitch symbolize all our hopes and dreams.
Let’s focus on the games I am speaking about in all that intro:
- Levski – Cska – the eternal derby of Bulgarian football. It is sad, that in the last 6 years Champions is Ludogoretz and these glory teams are shaken from one crisis to another. In all that bad moment, the ultras have stood behind their teams and players. As a tipster I must say that draw result like 1-1 will be the most fair outcome. I guess and I am 100 % positive that both supporters will create magnificent atmosphere at “Vasil Levski stadium”. The bad news is that should probably rain in Sofia.
- Roma – Lazio – Rome will not sleep and have not slept for the last 168 hours. It will be just furious. I think that Lazio will take this match. They qualified for the Coppa Italia with very smart tactical play in both games. Also even though their bench is short, all the players play as a team, thank to Simone Indzaghi. And the big joker for Lazio is Immobile. Not just a player – a total bomber.
This is all from me for today. There are huge games to come, prepare yourself good and wait for the passion to come. Support your teams and we will count the winnings soon…….
On Monday , there is a top football game in England, which will gain huge interest. The place is London, Stanford Bridge. Two managers – Conte and Mourinho will cross swords for the pride and honor of their teams. It will be not a battle , but a total war off and on the pitch.
I used to like Mou, he did a great betray. This was not his right choice in my opinion. If you have once been a trainer of Chelsea, you cannot go to some of their most hated rivals. It is like, if you have been a coach of Real Madrid, to be on the same place but in Barcelona. Many fans feel the way I do. But know Conte is another class. Italian guy who motivates even the people and players, who are not on the field. He has spirit, soul, energy and a heart of a Gladiator.
On the starting line up of United there will be many dangerous players: Ibrahimovic, Roho, Poghba and Rushford( I guess). On the other hand, Chelsea has very balanced team, who can score 5 goals on counter attacks. Our goalkeeper is very good and I am expecting 2-1 or 3-1 win for the London blues .
So as a tipster , I can give you advise to play and bet on Chelsea to win in both halves, Diego Costa to score at anytime, -0,5 and -0,75 Asian handicaps for the home team. Good market and selection is to pick a multiple bet in bet365 of : overs ( over 2,5 goals in the game , over yellow cards in the match and over corners for the whole game). Also I think that fans on Stamford Bridge will give hard times to Mou,and if you find a Uk bookie , bet that he will be sent off. Ths game from FA Cup has a special potential and energy.
It is wonderful to have United at London. We love to beat them and Arsenal, it is our mentality to win with an ease. Come on Chelsea ………!!!
I saw many games yesterday night. Many matches from League Europa. Everyone tried to focus our attention on the Balkan derby : Olympiacos – Besiktas, but there was one other game, which took my breath away. One game which was so intense , that at some times I had forgotten to drink from my bear.
Let’s see which was the game and what have happened, that astonished us all this way:
Lyon – Roma : result at the end was 4-2 after home team was losing the game 1-2 at half time. But the most interesting was about to come:
- Roma are one of the best team in Italy and Europe, they play very good in offense and defense. They play modern and fast football with one touch of the ball, player turn from defensive to attacking style.
- Lyon – playing like a fist. All the team of French , was amazingly good and motivated.
- Alexandre Lacazette – this man was all around the pitch. Every time he was on the appropriate place- running, stealing the ball , giving amazing passes and scoring the best goal recently, in the 92′ minute.
- To neutralize Sallah and Naingolan – this was the main motive and type of play of Lyon defense. They were so compact and strong , that in the second half team of Roma did not have that much goal opportunities.
- To believe – the team of Lyon showed to all the world fans and other sports teams, how a game can be won bit a heart, spirit and will. Will for glory.
- Eyes of Spaletti and whole team of Roma- I am 100 % sure, that they did not expected such a scenario at the end of the game.
- 12th player – the fans, the crowd, ultras or any other name on your language you can give them. They were amazing during the whole game. I am impressed.
Football games from different tournaments, can always be interesting and touching. It is about the point of view. My father used to tell me, that if you forget about everything else that surrounds you, than the game is immense. I have no other words for the game between Lyon – Roma, just superb.
