Blue or red

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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…….

This time for Klopp

Good evening, dear punters. We are very close to an interesting weekend. There are many games which deserve our attention, but the the best on is which I have chosen for you.

There were games for different Cup sin Europe and I can say , that many of them were too interesting and some, with unexpected results and endings i.e Alaves made it to the final with Barceona in Spain, after playing one brave game at their home stadium and a goal at the 80 ‘minute of time, which exalted the stands… Also Atletico Madrid was close to an over time, but the referees did not count a regular goal by Grizman, which was definitely not in offside situation.

The game which I have prepared for you, will be very dramatic I can guarantee you that. It is from UK , Premier League and we will see a loft of our favorite markets completed such as : goals, cards, corners and why not a penalty and red card in the game. Now on the match :

  1. Liverpool – Tottenham : not just  a derby, it will be a game for the pride of the home team. If Liverpool want to fight for the top 4 places in the standing they are obliged to take this derby. The owe this t the fans and to their manager – Jurgen Klopp. ” Spurs” have many injured players and this will be the ideal chance for the top players from the city of Beatles to score a lot and to gain back their pride. I do not have any doubt , that all of you will watch this event. Usually when there are derbies on the run, any other engagements and appointments are in a back stage, some where hidden, skipped or just missed. But , this is a sports betting blog not a sports magazine on-line and the time to focus on the winning markets and stakes had become.  The top combo of 3 markets in bets 365 over 2,5 goals, over 10,5 corners and over 4,5 yellow cards, which will give you the total as odds 6,39 , you can have it with 100 or 1k in Euro, USD , BGN or whatever is your value in the account. Definitely cards and corners are looking easy to come and to be taken and won. About the goals , I think 2-1 result for Liverpool will fit superb to this derby. Not forgetting the support of the fans from the stands. Liverpool are capable of creating miracles , remember the semifinal game versus Borussia Dormtund when they were losing 1-3 and won with 4-3 , with a header of Dean Lovren. This was so dramatic game, resembling to the final with Milan, when they came back after losing 0-3 at half time, finishing 3-3, winning the Champions League Title after penalty. When Liverpool is paying home, they can do anything, believe me ..

So the end is near, of this article. I am glad that , your attention was for 5 minutes with my tipster’s skills. If you have anything to share or you like to contribute somehow to this bog, feel free to contact me @ : info@toppix12fix.com. Have a wonderful night and do not forget to buy yourself many beers:):)

 

Come on, Chelsea !!!

Good day , dear punters. When I am writing those lines, my hands are shaking and my fingers are trembling. Chlesea will have visit on Anfield Stadium and the hell there will be for the “blues” from London. But is not this the main reason, we love to see, bet and speak about football. Those great derbies, which make our hearts stop and we lose all the normal looks, shout like animals and cry for joy.

I am fan of the team from London, for over 24 years. I remember the team with Dzola, those Italian magician, who was everywhere on the pitch. I remember Desailly , Descamos and Gullit playing for us. I remeber Vialli as a coach . I remeber the last CUP of FA won on the old Wembley Stadium before the reconstruction. I remember the missed penalty of John Terry and winning one of Droghba versus Bayern Munich. I remember almost everything.

From tonight game I want to remember a good game and 11 lions determined to die on the pitch of Liverpool. Antonio Conte is hell of a strategist and he has prepared surprises for the boys of Jurgen Klopp- I definitely believe and I am convinced about that fact.It will not be just a derby, it will be and always is a war. Even in those 2 games for the Champions League, when we could not proceed ahead , after two draw results : 1-1 at Stamford Bridge and 0-0 at Anfield – Shevchenko missed a great opportunity in the end of the game. After that Liverpool won against Milan. But this is all history and make mine and your love stronger….

About the outcome of the game, the best result for Chelsea will be win or draw , something like 1-1 at the end looks fair enough. Also Liverpool could not proceed ahead for the both CUP competitions in UK, and will try to take the maximum from this derby. Also we do not have to forget the crowd and the fans. They will make a boiling pot from Anfield Stadium. Spectators and bettors are eager for this event. Are you keen and eager enough to seen one of the best derbies to come in Europe and in the World? If you are feeling the same way, I did lets start the count down till the start of the game – 10 hours and 4 minutes and 30 seconds remaining……

 

 

Derbies we love to see

Good evening, dear friends. I am very happy to see and to speak with you. In my country – Bulgaria, we are all covered with snow and our football Championship is on pause, but fortunately there are many other Championships playing and we are able to watch and bet on our famous and favorite sport.

For the weekend , I have prepared as usual 2 games . They are from Italy and England. As I turn back in time, these countries and Championships, are the one I regularly placed bets on and gave tips and predictions about. The good thing about UK, is that there you have plenty of low and high football leagues an with good knowledge, the amount of winning bets can be enlarged. For Italy, I like the atmosphere on the stadiums and the fever, which is recently connected and related with many goals scored( i.e yesterday game for Italy Cup , Lazio – Genoa :4-2). Also if you are good in predicting and following the corner lines and outcomes, those countries can bring you good profit on that market. And the professional punters, also do follow the yellow card lines…. Now on the matches:

  1. Manchester City – Tottenham: this derby , looks like a game for the title with great bet on it. Not only for the future destiny of Pep Guardiola, but also the boys of Mauricio Pochetino, are on the second place after Chelsea in the UK Premier League , standing table. City will not lose this game and they are obliged to take it in order to take and keep the distance in top 4 in a reasonable point difference. Over 2,5 and over 3,5 goals in the game. From this game “citizens” have to take the optimum, for “spurs” Harry Kane is always on the run and sneaking to score a dramatic goal or goals. Also I will suggest a combo bet on this game – over 2,5 goals * over 10,5 corners, which in bet365.com will give you odds – 3.02. Very valuable and reasonable bet.
  2. Milan – Napoli : great derby, with big potential for the players, goalkeepers, trainers and of course – punters. Guest from Napoli, will not lose this game. They are the only team in Seria A who has only 3 lost games, and contrary to the expectations, after leaving of Pipita, they are playing even better football with more goals scored by Mertens, Insigne , Jose Callejon, Milik and Marek Hamsik can score at anytime, from any place. Just a perfect team. What about the home squad? Gigi Donaruma – maybe he will be the best goal keeper in te world after 2 or 3 years. He is just perfect and has reflexes of a cat. He is positioning himself very smart, like a very old and experienced player, who is playing for over 20 years and he is just 18 years of age now. Over 10,5 corners and over 2,5 goals. You can take it as a single bet each and also can make a combo.

In a conclusion , I cannot wait for the weekend to come. Not only to watch and bet on games, but to drink beer with friends and to shout on the nice moments and goals. Phenomenon called football has this power, to make half of the world watch the best games on hypnosis on the TV’s and stadium , and to want more an more. Football is our religion, let all us all be blessed to see more and more interesting games and genius players. Have a wonderful evening:)

Today tips

Hello, dear friends. Holly and wonderful holidays are coming, this is the reason not to much Championship will be open for playing and for betting as well. But this is not the reason to be not in good mood and shape. Christmas is a wonderful holiday and time for rest.

Till we are preparing for the rest, let’s see what betting emotions and markets we have served to our attention today. There are not too much matches, but we are forced to pick quality. Even in such days and times, we can see and bet on some derbies, no matter is it about a National Cup Participation game or just a Championship one. Let’s see what is my choice for you, for today :

  1. Dinamo Busarest – Steau Bucarest –  the great derby in Romania and Bucarest. It will be about the cup. Blue ones – Dinamo versus the read ones – Steaua. I do not like Steaua , prefer Dynamo to take the win. Odds are against my choice and wish. Sports director of DYnamo is Adrian Mutu, one very good and provocative football player, he knows how to motivate the manager of the team and players on the pitch. As per my opinion markets which are prfitable for this game : both teams to score ( 1.91 @ bet365) ; draw no bet for Dynamo – 2,1, European Handicap + 1 for the home team, correct score  1-1 or 2-2( most likely as per statistics, this match will finish 1-1). If you find pre-match or in -play markets for yellow card, definitely pick the over line. Everybody knows what is happening in derbies of high voltage. Not lets go to the second game:
  2. Fiorentina  – Napoli : I am a huge fan of Italian football and can guarantee you , the Napoli willl not lose this game and there will be a lot of goals in Florence. Italian football now is the most attractive for watching  – many goals, crazy fans and powerful football managers i.e look the yesterday mach : Inter – Lazio ( 3 goals scored in the second half, after the result in the first was 0-0). So when it is about an interesting game, I always give you advise to pick the over line for corners, this time is 9,5 corners and the odds in bet365 is 1.72. Also the line for yellow cards deserves our attention , it is 5,5 – odds is 2,2 at it should be with 50 % from your flat stake. Both teams to score and Napoli to score in both halves.

It is good   when you have someone on your side. I am and will be always open to help and giving you good advises. It you are not still having account with any bookie, I recommend you : bet365, tipbet, dafabet and 10bet. For ive betting , there is only one leader , bet365.com Wish you well and have very pleasant holidays 🙂

Derbies for winners

Good morning, my team. I call you team as we are paying from one side of the game, we are the winners. It is very good to be and to want to be always on the winning side of everything. I am doing all the time, my best to give and bring you big harvest in best, stakes and profits 🙂

I want to admit you, that I am huge fan of Italian and English football. Both now are with many goals, and many of my favorite players are playing in these Championships- Seria A and UK, Premier League. Maybe these are the reasons to pick two derbies of high voltage , from these two countries:

  1. Manchester City – Arsenal : what happened with City ? This is the question which is in the heads of their fans and of course, of all the bettors. I have watched the game they had lost against Leicester. With this play Manchester City could not become Champions.  Arsenal are in good shape and are chasing Chelsea for the first place in the standings of Premier League. My expectations as a fan and as a punter is that there will be at least 4 goals. The problem is will the result be 2-2 at the end or 3-1 for the team of Guardiola. Alsi I expect many corners in this game, as both teams are playing open and attacking football.
  2. Juventus – Roma : blood and honor . These two teams are favorites of the referees, given strange penalties, some very disputable decisions. All of you remember the 3 penalties given, in a derby like this in Torino. Excluding this theme, Juventus as leaders in Seria A are the main favorite here , having atomic forward players : Mandjukic, Higuain, Dybala . They won in the previous round the derby of Torino with Turin, 3-1 while they were losing 1-0. No one can take from them ” il scudetto ” this year. In derbies like this, defense is the main strategy. So the market under 2,5 goals in the game, seems one of the most reasonable. The result at the end of the game will be 1-0 for Juve or a draw ( 0-0 or 1-1 ) . Roma is 4 points after the “old segnora” and will try not to lose this derby.

If you liked my predictions, I will be glad to hear your opinion or to read your comments. Good day and many winning moments this week, dear punters and fans 🙂

World Cup qualifiers madness

Good morning, my friends. I am glad that you have chosen my blog among all the other available in the net ( over 1 million I guess :)))). There is something very special in Sunday’s , usually the best derbies in Italy and UK are payed on these days. Also I have integrated in my mind , the program that Sunday suspense for football is much more intrigue then the ones we have for the midweek derbies ….

So as it is a Sunday, special day but mainly with World Cup qualifiers games , I have brought to your attention two very interesting matches.  Usually when we speak about qualification games, we count on stats and the experience and the momentum form of the teams. Also the home scene advantage  , should be taken … Let’s check the games I have for you today :

  1.  Serbia- Austria : from first sight it looks like a draw game with not over 2,5 goals . Both teams now each other very well and the competition for the top places in this group will be among them and the brave team of Wales.  All the odds , I should give you will be according to bet365.com sports book. Both team will score – 1,95 and over 9,5 corners in the game 1.9.  Draw no bet for Austria – 2,38 ( in my humble opinion the game will end 1-1 or 2-2).  Any time goal scorers – Arnautovich at 4 and Alaba at 4,33. Let me introduce you some Asian lines from bet365 about this games :  Austria + 0,25 ( 0 , 0,5 ) at 1,975 , over 0,75 goals in the first half – 1,7 and first half over 4,5 corners ( asian line) – 1,975. To bet on corners is a very interesting challenge . Usually people who are not totally aware of it, think that corners is for gambling purpose only. The truth is , that is one of the favorite markets for bookies and for punters. Good and very open games are evaluated will goals and corners. When we have a rough player or  harsh players, then the lines for cards appear with its strong value. In this game I do not expect many yellow cards to be shown. If you find the line for yellow card in your favorite bookmakers, then I advise you to take it with half of your regular stake.
  2. Iceland – Turkey : Croatia is the leader and favorite in this group. The team of Turkey is hard to be beaten , but I think today this will happen. Everyone remembers the games Iceland had played, even that 2-5 with France, they had humiliated the UK team and also were and are known with their passionate fans. 10% of the 300 k population of that incredible Iceland country were on the European Championship  in France. When those two team are paying , the advantage is on the home squad. I expect win for the home team and over 2,5 goals in the game. Over 8,5 corners in the game also deserve your attention and a 100 % of your stake ratio. Both teams to score – yes is with 1,75 rate at bet365.com

This is my analysis for today and for the games , I had prepared for you. And do not forget the most important thing is to bet smart. Smart means, that if you have today 1000 $ in your account, not to lose all of them and tomorrow morning to be in a wonder where from to take money for another bets. Let’s watch the games tonight and count the winning tips and predictions tomorrow. Wish you well and wish you rich winnings 🙂

 

 

The honor of the Capital

Good evening, my friends. I guess you are fine and in perfect mood. I had a very hard working day and not it is time to give you a special portion. A prediction, which waited patiently to appear on the white paper, in our case in the blog of mine. It is now dark and a little bit cold in Sofia and I am waiting for many stars to shine on the sky.

The main point for mine tonight article are two games which will be played tomorrow. Games who are for the pride of two European Capitals – London and Rome. Both of them were in the map of the Roman Empire. Londonium was one of the biggest cities , far away from the eternal city. Both cities have their magnificence and glamour. They are like pearls, like diamond which can amaze you and make you feel in love with them, no matter at what time of the year , you are about to visit them.

I propose, we are not only football fans but also men and women , who have sense for the beautiful things in life. Sports and football, by its self is kind of masterpiece and the participants of every single spectacle are more like gladiators or even like starts, who want and try to capture our hearts and eyes.

Tomorrow two English and two Italian teams will fight for the honor of their fans, for their personal pride and for the honor of the capital. Most of the times derbies show the cultural , political, financial and progressive thinking in the different societies . Let’s stop with the description and focus on our main target – football tips and passion , who is fashioned and designed in numbers, in our betting language – odds:

  1. ArsenalTottenham : this the derby of great importance , not only for the fans and spectators in London. They are very close in the standing of UK , Premier League. “Gunners”are with 25 points ,”hot spurs”are 5 points behind them. My professional opinion is for total over 2.5 goals game. Arsenal suffered a lot in Munich, after humiliating loss 1-5 from Bayern. Harry Kane and Lamela are hungry for glory and for many goals scored as well. There will be definitely a lot of corners as well. My prediction is for open game with many opportunities in front of the both goal keepers. All the odds on this match and the other , which will be predicted are according to my betting partner and odds provider – William Hill. I think that the game will end with a win of Arsenal 3-2 or even with draw result 2-2. Race to 2 goals for Arsenal is – 1,8 and Race to 3 – 3.1.Race to 2 goals for Tottenham – 4.2 Olivier Jiroux and Harry Kane to score at any time – 5. Lets’s how we will make it with the corners : over 12 – 2,6 ( this value worth a lot and I intend to bet big on it). I am convinced that there will be a red card in the game – odds is3 and penalty as well. Last marker with a lot of value is match result and both teams to score , for Arsenal – 3.5.
  2. RomaLazio : I am a fan of Lazio for more then 15 years and this is one of the most intriguing game which will soon be played. Like in the previous game, home squad is 5 points ahead in the top of the table of Italy, Seria A. Both Ultras fractions will be protesting and not attending the match , because the authorities had decided to make fences behind both doors in front of Curva Nord and Curva Sud. The expectations are for only 35 k fans to be at Olympico.  The most regular and obvious outcomes in this marvelous derby are : draw result, with both teams to score – 4,2 @ William Hill, red card awarded , penalty taken and over card line in the game ( OVER 6 cards – 1.4 or between 4-6 cards – 3.4 and match corners – over 12 @ 4.2 It will be a passionate game, Lazio won against Rosenborg with the reserve squad and boys of Pioli are prepared for another derby duel. ON the other side we have Totti, Dzeko and Sallah, not forgetting to mention Gervinho, who can score from any position. My final prognosis for the game is draw result something like 1-1 or 2-2.

Good luck , lads. I know we can make it, not as a team , but also as a community of football, sports and betting fans. Dare to win and do not forget to watch this amazing derbies. Even while I am writing this post my fingers are trembling , I love Lazio and I cross my fingers for them to win.

 

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.
