Champions League is my favorite part of the football cake, we like to consume and take each day, night, minute and second. It is not just a competition , it is a mortal combat for dominance, grandeur and spirit. Spirit and energy differ big from small teams.
I was thinking these days, where in Europe is the best football played. I had several days of thinking and analyzing and come to a final conclusion – Spain and Italy. It is not just because of the starts that are playing in these countries, it is the style and quality of playing. Also the competition is big and in top 5 places of the standings, teams are in a very high level of performance.
The match which I have picked for you is one of the best to be shown and played. I am a fan of Real Madrid for over 30 years. This team is blessed to have one of the best players in the world : Butragenho, Zidan, Ronaldo, Modric, Bale, Figo, Mcmanaman, Iker Casillas, Raul ( the magnificent 7 , a man and a myth). Now Zinedian Zidan is a coach and he is doing his job in a very professional way.
All of you now know, which is the game , my prediction would be about:
- Napoli – Real Madrid: first game was very, very good and breath taking. Italians took the lead and the big and hard times for them were about to come. 3-1 victory for the “royal team from Madrid” was not the biggest score they could achieve. Five one was close to the real missed opportunities in the second half. Tomorrow night in Naples it will be very hard for the boys of Mauriccio Sarri. Real is a very dangerous team on counter-attacks. The most obvious markets to bet on should be : both team to score , over 2,5 and 3,5 goals in the game, over corners and both team to score in both halves. I expect and open game with many goal chances. Napoli have to score an early opener. The fair result of the game would look like 2-2 , goals scored by Hamsik and Insigne , for Madrid – Ronaldo and Benzema.
I am going to fitness now, see you very soon and we will count our winning, tomorrow after the game….
