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.
Ludogorets – Lokomotiv Plovidiv
The new season in Bulgaria will start with the Supercup match where Ludogorets and Lokomotiv Plovdiv will meet, two teams hoping to win the trophy this evening. The main favorite of this confrontation is Ludogorets, the Bulgarian champion of the last 8 years won the Super Cup last season, and in today’s match the coach Stoycho Stoev has at his disposal the most important players in the squad.
So in today’s formation we will watch Cosmin Moti, Cicinho, Marcelinho, Wandderson, captain Svetoslav Dyakov and Claudiu Keseru. All of these footballers have over 30 years, so the main advantage of the Ludogorets is the team’s experience.
Lokomotiv Plovidv does not have so many known players, Nigerian defender Stephen Eze being considered the most valuable member of the team.
Lokomotiv managed the previous season to win the Bulgarian Cup in a very tense final against rivals Botev Plovdiv, the final score was 1-0 for Lokomotiv, which means that the players prepared by Bruno Akrapovic have a well-organized defensive. In the most recent straight game against Ludogorets, Lokomotiv was defeated by 1-0, and for today’s game we invite you to bet on the option under 2.5 goals scored, a forecast for which you will get 2.10 and that can be an income even the winner of the trophy will be decide in extra-time.
Angola – Mali
The Africa Cup gives us another very interesting match today, a game in Group E where the Mali national team will meet Angola in a confrontation that will decide the final situation of the ranking. Angola is forced to play for a victory in this meeting because in the duels with Tunisia and Mauritania, Angolan players have achieved a tie. Given that Tunisia is a clear favorite in the match against Mauritania and we expect Angola to look for victory in the game today to avoid elimination from the African Cup.
Mali national team is the only team in the group to have won a victory, 4-1 victory against Mauritania gives football players coached by Mohamed Magassouba an advantage over other opponents. We also have to mention that Mali is an unpredictable team that was defeated by Algeria before this tournament, but the importance of today’s game should motivate Mali players to evolve to the maximum potential.
The latest direct game with Angola was played in 2010 and was a total show for football fans because that match ended with a 4-4 score after Angola led by 4-0. Perhaps even today we are expecting an equally dramatic ending, although the best predicted is Mali’s success, a bet for which bookmakers pay a 2.15 share and you will earn an extra income.
