FCSB – Milsami
The first Europa League match for Romania’s vice-champion, FCSB, will be against an opponent from Moldova, Milsami Orhei, a modest team without too many claims that will have an almost imppossible mission in today’s confrontation. Milsami stood out on the Moldavian football scene in 2012 when they won the first Moldavian Cup and in 2015 Milsami managed to break the dominance of Sheriff Tiraspol and win the title of champion.
Milsami finished last season on second place in the Moldavian Championship, but we must not miss the difference between the level of clubs in Romania and Moldova. FCSB prepared this summer with a couple of friendly matches against Romanian football teams, and the physical condition of the players should be optimal for European matches. We will also mention that the most talented footballers from FCSB evolved this summer at the Under21 European Championship and managed to reach the semifinals of the competition.
The betting agencies see the Moldavian team as a certain victim in this confrontation, but the bettors should also be aware about the motivation and the concentration of the players. In these circumstances, we do not expect a very high score difference, for a 1.75 odds bet, we should count on the score under 4.5 goals scored because Milsami will try to defend itself as effectively as possible.
Sarajevo – Celtic
The UEFA Champions League qualifiers bring many interesting encounters because in this phase of the competition meet ambitious teams who want to qualify in the group stage. A very awaited duel will be between Bosnian champion Sarajevo and Scottish champion Celtic Glasgow. The Scottish team is usually the favorite to qualify in the next round, but Sarajevo hopes to take advantage of its own ground this evening to get a remarkable result.
The club in the capital of Bosnia has not participated in the UEFA Champions League since 2015, and the most important performance was achieved in 2007 when FK Sarajevo managed to eliminate the Belgian team Genk. Celtic has consistently participated in the UEFA Champions League because in recent years they dominated Scottish football and in 2017 Celtic has managed to reach the group stage.
Players trained by Damien Duff and John Kennedy are very motivated to achieve this year’s performance because the financial benefits of this competition are very important to any European club. The most important player in the Scottish team is Scott Brown, the 34-year-old midfielder has a lot of experience and can inspire his colleagues to get the victory. In conclusion, the best predictor is a success for the Scottish for which you will get 1.60, but you have to consider the variant of a surprise produced by FK Sarajevo.
Mali – Ivory Coast
African Cup matches are getting tougher as we get closer to the last act of the competition and today we are going to present the meeting between Mali and Ivory Coast, two bands having real chances to win the trophy this year. The Mali team finished first in Group E, including Tunisia, Angola and Mauritania.
It should be noted that Mali is one squad that has managed two wins and scored in all matches in Group E, which means that players coached by Mohamed Magassouba have the potential to win the first trophy in the history of this national team. From the squad called up for this tournament we must follow Moussa Marega from FC Porto, Abdoulay Diaby from Sporting Lisbon and Diadie Samassekou who play in Austria at Salzburg.
The Mali team is made up of many young footballers, the average age being 24.7 years, while the Ivory Coast has an average age of 27 and will count more on the experience of Wilfried Bony, Max Gradel or Serge Aurier. In today’s duel we have to expect a very balanced match, the option of over 1.5 goals scored can be the most inspired choice because it will bring odd 1.65 and will be the winner regardless of the team that will get the qualification.
Brazil – Peru
Brazil’s national team is one step away from giving fans a great reason to celebrate, as the Selecao team has reached the Copa America final, where it will meet the team of Peru. The two opponents also met in the group stage, and Brazil then managed to impress with a 5-0 score, this being the only defeat suffered by Peru players at this tournament.
Although they was not among the favorites to win the trophy, but the Peru team managed to eliminate Uruguay and Chile, and today Ricardo Gareca footballers hoped to make another surprise and bring the third Copa America trophy. However, we must not forget that Brazil is one of the most powerful teams in the world, well-known football players such as Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, Willian or Arthur will try to give a show to the Brazilian fans on Maracana Stadium in Rio De Janeiro.
Brazil’s most difficult match was considered the one in the semi-finals that defeated the Argentine rival, but in today’s game there will be much greater pressure because the national Selecao is the clear favorite of the victory. For bettors we offer the option of over 2.5 goals scored, quoted with 2.00, because between the two teams there is a big difference and Brazil should win very clear.
Argentina – Chile
For Argentina, the last game of this Copa America edition will be against the Chilean national, an opponent to win to finish on third position. Both teams were considered among the favorites to win the trophy at the start of the competition, but their course stopped in the semifinals. Argentina was eliminated by the tournament host, Brazil, after a balanced match that ended with a 2-0 score for Brazilians.
Even though Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero were included in the starting team and Paulo Dybala and Angel Di Maria entered the match as a sub, Argentina failed to score in the South American rivals duel. This disappointment reminded Argentine fans of the first game of this tournament, when the national “La Albiceleste” was defeated by Colombia with the same score.
It is very likely that the game is being watched with great care by Chilean team coach, who will try today to take advantage of Argentina’s weaknesses and achieve victory. Chile has managed to beat Colombia in penalties and it would not be a surprise if this game will need extra time to decide the winner. Considering the situation of the two squads, the most suggested betting prognosis is the option under 2.5 goals scored, quoted with 2.00 because both teams have problems in the offensive phase and the motivation is not as high.
Dinamo Minsk – BATE Borisov
In the fight for a new title of Belarusian champion, BATE Borisov will have today a difficult match to Dinamo Minsk, a strong opponent who can get a surprising result. After 13 rounds, BATE is on the second position, only 2 points away from the leader Brest, while Dinamo Minsk ranks on 4th position.
The difference between Dinamo Minsk and BATE is only 6 points in the standings, but let’s keep in mind that the Borisov team has only conced 4 goals until this match. Many specialists expect BATE to win the Belarusian championship again and continue the tradition of 13 years since it is the best team in Belarus.
Dinamo Minsk has not won the title since 2004 and the last victory in a direct match with BATE Borisov was won four years ago. The most recent meeting of the two clubs was won by BATE with a score of 2-1 after Dinamo scored the first goal. Even today, it is possible to have an equally dramatic game even if the best predictor remains a victory for BATE , which is quoted with 1.95 and will bring them closer to a new title of champion.
Europa FC – Sant Julia
Football fans will now have a very spectacular match between Europa FC and Sant Julia, two small clubs that will face in the Europa League preliminaries and promise to give us a match with many goals. Europa FC is the host of this meeting, the Gibraltar vice champion lost in the first match with a score of 3-2 and hopes to take advantage of his own field to get the qualification. Last week Europa FC led 1-0 and 2-1, but Sant Julia managed to equal and win that match after a dramatic ending in which the Andorra team also had a eliminated player.
So you can imagine the motivation of Europa FC to win the game today and qualify for the next round. The Gibraltar club also achieve the first win in Europa League 3 years ago when they won the 2-0 draw against Pyunik Yerevan Armenians. Sant Julia has been participating for many years in the Europa League but has not had many good results and we recommend you to rely on the success of Europa FC, rated 1.60, a result that would bring great joy to the Gibraltar club.
