Morocco – Ivory coast
Two of the most powerful teams on the African continent will meet today at Al Salam Stadium in Cairo, where Morocco and Ivory Coast will try to win the second African Nations Cup victory. The two nationals are considered among the trophy candidates at this edition organized in Egypt, and we must emphasize that the two teams have several footballers who can change the final outcome of this game.
In the Ivorian team, Wilfried Zaha, the striker of Crystal Palace who scored 10 goals and offered 10 assists in this season of the Premier League. Zaha has evolved to the youth teams of England, so he has a lot of experience in international matches and hopes with Wilfried Bony, Serge Aurier and Franck Kessie to bring a new trophy for the Ivory Coast.
The last success of the “elephants” was at the 2015 edition when the Ivory Coast was coached by Herve Renard, the current Moroccan team’s manager. Under these circumstances, Renard is well aware of his opponent today and this factor can be decisive in this balanced duel. It is very possible for the two teams end with a draw, but the most suggested option for bettors is the option under 2.5 goals scored, rated with 1.45 because it will be a very tight game.
Spain U21 – France U21
The second semifinal of the European Under21 Championship is a duel between two world-power football teams, two teams from which the following Spanish and French football stars will be declared. Spain came in this phase of the tournament with many emotions, the first game in the group was a failure against the Italian hosts, but then the team coached by Luis de la Fuente managed a victory with Belgium and a resounding success with the score of 5-0 against Poland.
This clear victory was decisive for the Spanish national, as the Group A tie was made to the gap between Poland, Italy and Spain.
France had the qualification almost secured after the first two games in which they get 6 points and in the match with Romania the French players preferred not to force very much and with an equal result to avoid meeting with Germany in the semifinals.
We also have to add that in the match against Romania the French coach preferred to spare some of the most important players, a decision that can be very important in today’s confrontation considering that the schedule for the two teams has been very busy in the last few weeks . Bookmakers offer 2.10 for the success of the Spanish players who are favorites to qualify again in the Under21 European Championship final.
Egypt – DR Congo
Egypt was privileged this year to host the Africa Cup, and in the second round of the group stage hosts will receive a visit from the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Egyptian team holds the record of the most trophies won, and this history forces Javier Aguirre to give fans a spectacular victory today. Cairo International Stadium expects more than 50,000 Egyptians to put tremendous pressure on the Congolese team.
Egypt has not lost on its own field since January 2016 when it suffered a surprising lost against Jordan. The current component of the Egyptian nation includes Mohamed Salah, Mohamed Elneny, Ahmed Hegazy and captain Ahmed Elmohamady. And the Congo team has some important footballers including Cedric Bakambu, Yannick Bolasie, Chancel Mbemba or Christian Luyindama.
In addition to the public’s contribution, it will be a great deal to count on the experience of the Egyptian team, a squad that participated in the World Cup in 2018 and reached the final of the last African Cup. The most recent direct match between the two teams was a friendly match in 2012 that ended with a score of 0-0. Today we will have a much more spectacular duel because the stake of the game is more important and a 1.40 win of the Egyptians is the most predictive for those who want to bet.
Feronikeli – Lincoln
A new season will start today for European clubs after a short summer break, Kosovo champion KF Feronikeli and Gibraltar champion Lincoln Red Imps will meet in the first round of the UEFA Champions League preliminaries. The two squads finished the last season at the end of May, so there was only one month in which the players of the two clubs had no longer played official games.
For the hosts of Feronikeli this is the first match in the UEFA Champions League, so the team coached by Zekirija Ramadani now has the chance to demonstrate the quality of Kosovo football. We also remind you that Feronikeli won twice the domestic championship before but did not participate in European competitions because the Kosovo League was still not fully adhered to UEFA rules. Most of the players are from Kosovo and are unknown to the general public, but we have to appreciate that the ambition and desire to affirm these players can be a decisive element in this confrontation.
Lincoln Red Imps have participated in the last 5 years in the European Cups, and the most successful one was achieved in 2016 when the Gibraltar club managed a victory against the Scottish Champion Celtic Glasgow. In conclusion, you can say that a very passionate match is waiting for us, in which the most favorable betting tips is a victory for the champion from Kosovo, a forecast for which the bettors will receive 1.40.
France U21 – Romania U21
The last teams qualified in the Under21 European Championship semi-finals will be decided in the match tonight between France and Romania, two teams have the chance to qualify for the next stage of the competition. Until now, the two nationals have reached the highest points in the games with England and Croatia, and Romania is the first in the group because it has more goals scored.
We remind you that in the semifinals of this tournament it will qualify the teams that finished in the first position of the 3 groups and the best team from the second position. Considering these details, an equal result can guarantee the qualification of both teams, regardless of the situation in the other groups.
However, France’s national squad is clearly superior to the Romanian team, many of the players selected for this tournament already have the experience of major matches in the UEFA Champions League or Europa League. Romania can not boast of such players, but the group’s strength and ambition were the main factors that led to the two victories in which the Romanians scored 4 goals. The atmosphere in the team room of Romania is excellent and with an equal result the squad trained by Mirel Radoi can achieve historical performance. We still can not predict the final result, but the option under 2.5 goals scored, rated with 1.45, may be the safest choice in this match so important for the two nationals.
Qatar – Argentina
One of the favorites of the conquest of the Copa America trophy is Argentina, a squad that has many stars in its formation but which is going through a very difficult time. Having suffered a 2-0 defeat against Colombia, followed Paraguay and in the last match of the group Argentina will face the national from Qatar, the winner of most recent Asian Cup.
The Argentinians have had a lot of pressure on this tournament because coach Lionel Scaloni has Paulo Dybala, Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria and the most important member of the team, Captain Lionel Messi. Messi has reached the age of 31, it is possible that this Copa America tournament is the last for the FC Barcelona footballer who has never won the Copa America trophy.
Considering these issues, we expect the Qatar defense to pay special attention to the Argentine star and to offer the least chance of scoring. In Qatar, all players called up are evolving in the domestic championship and this may be a big deal in this game because the Asian squad is more homogeneous. We will have a dramatic match in which Argentina is the main favorite, but we are proposing to bet on the over 2.5 goals option which is quoted with 1.65 and can bring a profit if Qatar avoid the defeat.
Peru – Brazil
For today in the Match of the Day we chose a game from Copa America, a confrontation between Peru and Brazil, two teams promising to give us a spectacular game. The two nationals are favorites to qualify in the next round of the competition after both squads defeated Bolivia and recorded a 0-0 result against Venezuela.
Under these conditions, Brazil ranks first in Group A because it has a higher goal and is clearly the favorite to win in the case of betting houses. Brazil has not concede a goal in the last 4 games and Tite’s footballers will try to give fans of Arena Corinthians in Sao Paolo another reason for celebration. Probably most viewers will watch Willian, Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho or Casemiro.
Given the last match in the group, it is possible for the Brazilian coach to use some reserve players who have not played many minutes in the previous matches, so we can see Fagner or Cassio goalkeeper, the two players who were called from the local group, Corinthians. The difference in value between the two national teams is huge and we are expecting a definite victory for the Brazilians, although more profitable for bettors is the option of over 2.5 goals scored for which you will get 1.80 from most bookmakers.
