One totally crazy game…

Good day  , dear friends. Yesterday night we saw several nice games from the Champions League elimination round, one phase before the true games for entering the Group stage. One of them was the match between Crvena Zvezda – Ludogoretz. A game that had everything in it.

First game in Razgrad ended 2-2 and no one convinced the visiting squad to be the winner after the second game, which has been expected to be played against 50 000 fanatic fans of the Serbian team. Mala Marakana expected this game for a days now. Even some of the home team Ultras went in front of the hotel of the Bulgarians and flamed piro effect, which was very cowardice and mousy thing to do. They wanted to scared the “eagles”, but …..

I am actually fan of Levski Sofia, this is my team and this is where my heart belongs to. Levski are in crisis, not capable to overcome Maribor from Slovenia after two draw games. But we are here today to speak about Ludogoretz. I am not quite sure how many people have believed in a miracle in Serbia to happen last night. The results from previous game had put Serbians as favorite, because of their crazy and devoted fans. If you want to pass to the next level , you will be needing a result like 3-3 or to win by a goal difference. No Bulgarian team has been achieved this in the previous match-ups in such phases in Euro Football Competitions. But traditions are always to be broken in some way and in some time ….

Most of us, you, me , fans, people who regularly visit the stadiums, they are there for the game to see passion, suspense and many goals. All of you perfectly know what is the feeling , when your favorite teams scores, scores and early opener and you start to scream and sing and all the crowd is totally mad, full delirium… This is is what happened yesterday night, Zvezda scored the first goal, and this was it… Vlado Stoyanov made a mistake after the long shot, but he is human. I respect that man a lot, he saved a penalty from Ronaldo , not only for his team- Ludogoretz , but also in friendly game we played and we had won against Portugal , earlier this year. He is not just a goal keeper, he is a hero and great motivator. He had no chance to save the penalty for the equalizer 2-2 at the beginning of the second half, but he did many brilliant saves ever after.

Bulgarian team, played the game in the best technical and pragmatical way. The players of  Ludogoretz waited patiently to hit the opponent in fast and killing counter-attacks. This was how the 2 goals in the extra time were scored. There is one man  , who made the miracle a fact and a story to tell in the upcoming months. He is a Brazilain and his name is Wanderson. He scored 3 goals and killed the intrigue in extra time. He is very fast and I thin many good games, and many goals are up front to come…

I have to say good words for Zvezda players , they also played good game. It is one of the best games,   I have seen recently. We are proud of you Bulgrian heroes, not because you are passing the next round, it is because of the critics , you had. All which did not believe in the final win, are not very happy and dream big, maybe we will see againn Real Madrid or Barcelona in Sofia, only Fortune can tell us.

 

 

 

 

End of the season

Hello, dear friends. It has been a long time since my last post. It is the end of the football season in all the top 4 European leagues and I feel obliged , I have to say few words about the Champions an the runners up.

As bettors and fans, most of us , had watched all of the games, been to some of the stadiums and made a lot of bet on all popular and not that popular markets. We have been in all the epicenter and now we are expecting Euro 2016 Finals in France. But lets try to stick to the main line of the post – the top 4 European countries and their Football Championships:

 

  1. England – actually , I like most watching football from Italy , but this season was a great surprise what have happened there on the Albion. One team, who was close to relegation , played several seasons ago in the Championship, had pointed out and left all the competition far behind and far away. Yes , I am talking about Leicester , the foxes . Maybe there is one cunning fox- Claudio Ranieri. He made in Italian way, he created and inspired an army of humble players, who became stars and heroes. Premier League will never be the same 🙂
  2. Italy – “Old segnora” and new title. Napoli was the team , who was the main pretender, but unfortunately the short bench was the losing card for the coach – Maurizio Sarri. Roma were very close and the magic of Toti and his experience, will leave a remarkable sings in our memory. I have to say few words also for one player of the rivals of the ” wolves” – the eagles , Lazio. Miro Close played yesterday his last game and had scored a penalty as well. He is a hero, not just because he is a humble warrior, who was the World record for the most scored goals in World Championships player. He is a hero, because he is a good man, a decent member of the ” old school” players , who never felt or behaved like stars, but whom people and fans will love till the end of their lives.
  3. Spain – a classic clash, became a fight between 3 teams – Barcelona, Real Madrid and Athletico Madrid. Zinedine Zidane had to be earlier put as a coach of the team, but however the title is for Barca and the other two will play in MIlano for the Champions League trophy. Spanish Championship is probably the strongest one in Europe for the last 10 years. Just look what is happening in Europa League tournament, Sevilla are again at the final, but probably Liverpool will “steal” the trophy from them..
  4. Germany –  Bayern , Dortmund and all the rest. When you see the standing after the last games, you fully realize the meaning of my words. Competition is the last word we connect with the Bundesliga. I want to say some words about the Euro games of both teams. The boys of Guardiola, had played a magnificent second game against Juventus, but the same magic and good luck did not appear in the game with the boys of “El Cholo”. The second game of Dortmund against Liverpool, reminded me of the final which LIverpool had against MIlan. They were losing 3-0 and the half time, 3-3 at the final whistle and everyone remembers the penalties and the missed one by Sheva. There is some great atmosphere on Anfield , some magic and fortune that helps the Liverpool team always. Not on the last place, Klopp is the man that can motivates and ant to become a spaceman and  an invader.

Whish you all a pleasant day. For those who have predicted the champions on the outright betting – bravo , lads. For the other- we all are learning from every single game. And learning not only how to become better tipsters and bettor, but also hot to become better sportsmen and people. Be good and be good persons as well 🙂

 

Climb the Hill

Good evening , dear friends. It is been a long time, since my last post. I want to apologize for this time of lack of posts in the blog, but as all of you perfectly now, there are some times coincidences and facts, that does not depend on us. I am now here with  you and I am dedicated and devoted to give you few good picks and tips.

The ones who followed my predictions about the game SwedenDenmark, should be very happy and wealthy. For the others , my advise is to open account with my proud odds provider and betting partner – William Hill. As you are perfectly aware my prognosis will be strictly related with their odds and the favorite markets of mine, on top football events.

I have on my mind 4 games to share with you. One from Australia, A – league Hyunday, one from Bundesliga, one from Spain( the derby “El Classico“) and one from Seria A. There is not time left from blind and empty words, let’s see what William Hill traders have made for us:

  1. Melbourne VictoryCentral Coast Mariners : first of all,  I think that there will be a lot of goals in this match. The home squad will have 3-1 or 3-2 win at the end of the game. The two reliable beta are over 1,5 goals in both halves (2.15 and 1,7 @ W. Hill). Also race to 2 goals and race to 3 goals from home team ( 1.44 and 2,3). Both teams to score and Melbourne to win – 2.7 .
  2. SchalkeBayern Munich : the only competition that Bayern has this year is the brave team of Dortmund. in this game both teams will score and Bayern will win – 2.62 I think that the result will be 3-1 for the visiting squad, so all over lines 2,5 : 2,75 : 3,25 and 3,5 goals should be taken as well.
  3. JuventusMilan :  this will be a very tough derby. Both teams are not in their best forms, but Juve will positively take the win here. Correct score 2-1 for Juve – 8,5 at W. Hill and Juve to win and both teams to score – 4. Also,  I think there will be a lot of cards and corners in this match.
  4. Real MadridBarcelona :  the eyes of the fans in Europe and from all around the globe will be focused on the great game. Real has to take the win , even though it will be very difficult – 2,45 is the odds for them. Ronaldo to score and Real to win – 3.5 . Correct score 3-2 for Madrid – 21. Over 1,5 goals in both halves – ( 2.25 and 1.65). Also I think that Ronaldo will score at least 2 goals.

Wish you all wonderful evening, and do not hesitate to follow my tips, bet at William Hill , if you do not have an account with them, now is the perfect time to have a brand new one. See you soon.

 

 

 

 

Rome was not build in a day

Hello, dear all. Words are symbols of magic. I will try to bring you today some magic and some big wins.Yesterday from 4 games in Champions League, I have only one bet lost(just needed goal more in Istanbul). However today , I will share my professional tips with you. Betting is not just anonymous and selfish process, it has to be a team work, as I mentioned several times. Let’s harvest today- together.

I have picked for for 3 games from Champions League. When the summer pause in football is on, everyone is suffering and feeling sorrow , that there will be no games form the favorite European Club Tournaments. Do not worry, the magical moments are here now and we will take what belong to us .

  1. RomaBarcelona : this city is one the most beautiful in the world. Barcelona usually score at least 2 goals when they play here. They will definitely win against Roma, but the home squad will also score a goal. So you may back the goal/goal option and over 2,5 goals in the game. Not on the last place, when you are in Stadium Olimpico you fell like in heaven, fans are shouting during the whole game and the atmosphere is a piece of art.
  2. Dynamo ZagrebArsenal : Maximir is ready for an epic clash. Both teams had played in the same phase of the tournaments and both games were won by the “gunners” and both were over 2.5 goals. Croatians are ready for a big game. Believe me the Bad Blue Boys are among the most fierce and loyal fans on Balkans, Europe and on Earth. The game will be definitely an over 2,5 goals one, why not Dynamo to take the win 🙂
  3. ChelseaMaccabi Tel Aviv : Mou has to wake-up and wake-up his boys. Falkao and Costa have to show to the fans, that they are goal masters, not selfish boys, who are not in good mood. You can back 1.5 , -2.5 Asian handicap for the home squad, also to take the over 2.5 and over 2,75 goal lines in the game. Perhaps , Chelsea to score in both halves is also a valuable pick. Not forgetting to mentions, that the derby with London rival is coming -Arsenal. Tonight game will be a general repetition for the big clash in the weekend. Beware Mou, fans are not too patient enough.

These are the games for today, the choice is yours which outcome to back. There are many sites like mine on the net, I will be more that happy if I see you to come back for 2nd,3rd and 203rd time. The days is your, do not waste it in regret, expand your world and build  your Rome for a year, starting from today 🙂

 

FC Sevilla – fear nobody

A great game is about to come SevillaBarcelona , for the Super Cup of Europe- tonight. I was about to start with some stats, but this is information, that you can find in another sites. Let’s try this way- there is a trend for nearly 10 years, that Spanish teams do dominate in the European tournaments.

It was long ago when everyone was afraid and scared from the English teams. Yes, they do have many stars playing in UK, Premier League , but when it comes to European football scene,Spanish are far away from the others.

The perfect example is Sevilla. They are wining the Europa League title, just for the sport. For the last 10 years, they won this trophey 4 times. They had competition, in the previous edition of the tournament only from the team of Zenith. All other games were easily won, including the final against the brave team of Dnipro( who previously had kicked out Napoli from the semi-finals stage of eliminations). FC Sevilla is a rare diamond , that brights that strong, that could be seen in different directions of the Universe.

FC Barcelona, they are too strong to play in whatever championship you may think of. Just few names and words will be of no need : Rakitic, Alves, Messi, Neymar and Suarez. Actually , I am a keen fan of Real Madrid, but at this time and point of view, Barce do have one of the best teams in the world, also one of the most loyal fans. Everyone of us, do perfectly remember, how easy they won the final agains Juventus. We also do remember the tears of Pirlo ( a genius with the ball). With few words – Barcelona is a dream team.

My expectations from tonight games are that Sevilla will try to score an early goal , and will press their opponents hard. Barcelona is very strong , when its players do pass the ball for a long period of time and have a smashing ball possession , something like 65% -75% of the regular playing time. One of the main players for Barca is Rakitic, he will be playing against his former team-mates from Sevilla. He is very special and rare football layer, who is creating magic and magnificent passes , no matter how many defenders he has around. Neymay is injured and he will be substituted by Pedro. Every single one of us expects a lot from Messi, tonight is his time to show , why he is the best football player in the world.

At the end, I will allow myself to give you some betting advice. It will be a game with many goals and corners. Both teams play very attractive and open game. I think that Sevilla will take the Super Cup. They already had won against Barcelona for the same Cup in 2006.

Wish you many nice and wonderful emotions with the Europa Super Cup final, many winning and many smiles after the end of this brilliant game, which is so great expected. 

 

Great football derbies

It is very passionate and satisfactory to write about such a great theme. Football derbies is something unique, something of its own, something that has to be felt. When the years are passing, you analyze and see that this is not just a religion, this is something bigger that the fans, players , presidents of clubs and teams, it is an internal love and insomnia.

I will start with the insomnia. Most of the ultra fans, before such games of grandeur and glory, do not sleep for a week or even for a whole month. Can you imagine what power and energy it is ? You think how to make better choreography, how to sing more, which , what and how many numerous banners you will wave during the match? There are many questions and one determination and moving power – the ultimate and after every single derby, growing love to the team of your heart.

It is a theme that will have no end , this is just the first article. As you perfectly now on every continent, in every country , in every town or city there are derbies, clashes, rivalries . In future, I will do my best and to have a post on one of the most intense, dramatic and not-normal derbies from all around the world. I will just mention some , with the promise of mine that in the near future , there will be specific and detailed article about the most popular ones:

1. LazioRoma : this is the battle for the eternal city . Whole Rome is becoming like a boiling pot, days before the derby is coming. There are clashed among the ultras of both teams, also too many police forces are concentrated in the hot points in the capital of Italy.

2. PartizanCrvena Zvezda : the battle for Beograd. When these two opponents are playing , it is like a war. They also compete in basketball. In basketball halls , the football ultras usually support their teams, and some of the times the games got postponed, because of different reasons, as you can imagine and predict.

3. LevskiCska : this is the Bulgarian derby , which also gains and concentrates lots of energy and power in the capital of Bulgaria. One of the teams was created 34 years before the other. The other one was created by the communist party , and their color is red. The eternal fight between ” blue” and ” red” ideas is definitely seen , shown and performed here, on this stage. From 09 September 2015, the red team does not exist anymore, there are many teams with this name now. The one who is playing in BG premier league is Litex – Etropole.

4. Dinamo ZagrebHajduk Split : this is definitely the most intense and passionate derby of Croatia.Dinamo is the better team now, from 5 and more years. If you go to this marvelous country you can see graffiti of the two most powerful fractions of both rivalry teams : Bad Blud Boys and Torcida Split. When the derby is on its way, police forces are very careful, because there are many fights between the fans.

5. Boca JuniorsRiver Plate : this is something from another dimension. Because of the hot blood of Argentinians , there are people killed, when those opponents are playing. I remember a video, I saw in the net , in ” La Bonbonera” . The fans of Boca where singing, jumping and lightening torches  an hour or an hour and half before the start of the game. They are totally mad.

6. OlympiakosPanathiniakos : it is the battle for the capital of Greece -Athens. It is one of those games, which you should go and feel. I had e friend , who explained me in details what is to be on one or the other side , and what is total madness , and people devoted to their eternal and forever burning love for their local team.

7. Real MadridBarcelona: this is something immense . It started with a political ideas , and opponents where on the the total different positions. The team from the capital, the royal one, and on the other hand Barselona , who always wanted their freedom i.e they made a referendum to get excluded from the borders of Spain and wanted to create separate country – Catalunya.

8. Zenith St. PetersburgSpartak Moscow : it is something huge . It is a rivalry with 300 of years lasting. Saint Petersburg was the old capital of Russia . Here we have again the opposition of right and left ideas, the blues against the reds. It is one of the most fierce derbies in Eastern Europe.

9. FlamengoVasco da Gama : it is something that arranges the whole nations, also knows as the derby of the millions ( because both teams have the largest fan masses in Brazil). When we speak about South America , it is something beyond any one imagination.

10. BenficaSporting Lisboa : it is the derby of the capital of Portugal – Lisboa. Here there is a common thing as in South America : fans are making noise all the 90 minutes , before the games , and it is like you are in the middle of celebrating of Chineese New Year . It is amazing.

11. ArsenalTottenham , ChelseaManchester United , Manchester UnitedManchester City, LiverpoolEverton,  BirminghamAston Villa. Actually in UK there are plenty of derbies and it is great to what a games like this, not only in Premier League , but also in the lower divisions.

12. Borussia DortmundShalke 04 : it is the derby of Ruhr. Both teams are from that region, and have one of the most passionate, powerful and mad fans in Germany. I have to add here the rivalry between Dortmund and Bayern Munich. It is on Euroean stage and also on local German one. The team that can beat Bayern in every single game , no matter of the tournament is Borussia Dortmund( you all remember the semi-final game for DFB Pokal, when no one counted Dortmund that have power and mentality to go furhter).

13. Urawa Red DiamondsGamba Osaka : we move east to Japan. All I can see is that I am impressed by both teams and the behavior of their fans. When football and passion are going hand by hand, promises for great games and derbies appear on the horizon.

In a conclusion , I want to apologize to those of you , who don’t see their favorite team here . I had written some starting lines for the derbies, which I heard, read and have opinion about. If you have any further proposal , I will be glad to read it.

We are all slaves to one faith, one religion, one passion and one goal: our favorite team to win. But when the adorable team wins in the derby , this is the miracle of all miracles , this is the top of the world . It is indescribable , you just have to go to the game, sing with your friend , wave the banner, light up the torches and shout till you cannot speak , when the winning goal is scored.

 

New start
