Betting tips – Olympiakos vs Sporting – 12.09.2017
There are many interesting duels scheduled this Tuesday in UEFA Champions League and you can find predictions for all of them on our website. One of the most exciting matches will put face to face Olympiakos and Sporting, starting at 19:45, UK Time.
Olympiakos did very well in the recent weeks, coming here after five wins and two draws in their seven official games played this season. The Greeks are making the rules in the domestic league, as usual. They played two more preliminary rounds in Champions League to get here, eliminating Partizan Belgrade (5-3 on aggregate) and Rijeka (3-1 on aggregate).
The other side, Sporting faced FCSB in the UEFA Champions League play-off, qualifying in the group-stage after 0-0 in Lisbon and 5-1 in Bucharest. The visitors are in top form, with four wins in the last four official games. More than that, they have scored 15 goals, almost four per game. Sporting won the only meeting with Olympiakos so far, 1-0 in a friendly game played in 2012.
Prediction: Over 1,5 goals @ 1.40
We expect a good display from both sides here, since both of them are in top form, so we chose to bet on at least two goals in Athens today.
Betting tips – Moldova vs Wales – 05.09.2017
Moldova and Wales is scheduled for this Tuesday evening, starting at 19:45, UK Time. As expected, the visitors are big favourites on the sheet and at the bookies too.
Moldova have no real motivation ahead of this game, since they are the last ones in Group D. The hosts are yet to win a match this campaign, ticking only two draws and five losses so far. More than that, Moldova have the worst attack and the worst defense of the group, with a 4-18 goal difference after seven games. They lost very clear the reverse fixture, 0-4 a year ago.
Wales are on the third position in Group D, with 11 points accumulated so far. Bale and his teammates have two points less than Ireland, with three remaining matches. They need only positive results until the end, otherwise they will watch World Cup 2018 on TV. The Welsh team lost the only trip in Moldova, 2-3 in 1994.
Prediction: 2 @ 1.36
We chose a simple bet here, expecting Wales to confirm their superiority, just like in the reverse fixture when they won 4-0 at home. Now they need three points more than ever if they still want the second position of this group.
Betting tips – Hungary vs Portugal – 03.09.2017
Hungary will welcome Portugal this Sunday from 19:45, UK Time, in the 8th round of World Cup Qualifiers, the visitors being clearly in pole-position.
Hungarians start as underdogs at the bookmakers, but they should not be neglected with the fans behind. Anyway, the hosts have no real chance to get a ticket for Russia 2018, since they are eight points behind second place with three remaining rounds. Hungary have a total of ten points in their account and a 11-8 goal difference. They just defeated Latvia at home, 3-1 few days ago in the last round.
Portugal won the reverse fixture without any problem, 3-0 at home after Silva scored the first goal and Ronaldo the two others. It is good to know that Portugal won both trips against Hungary so far, in 1998 (3-1) and in 2009 (1-0). The Lusitans are currently second in Group B, with 18 points out of 21. Switzerland lead the table, with maximum number of points after seven games, so there is no place for wrong steps for Portugal.
Prediction: 2 @ 1.36
Portugal need only wins if they want to finish first in this group. It won’t be easy in the last three matches and this is going a difficult trip. Anyway, we expect to see them getting three points here, being superior from many points of view.
Betting tips – Spain vs Italy – 02.09.2017
The most exciting meeting scheduled this Saturday in football will put face to face Spain and Italy. The game starts at 19:45, UK Time, and nothing is excluded here.
Spain have the advantage of the own ground and that’s why they start a little in pole-position at the bookmakers. However, they won’t risk too much, since a loss will take them out from the leading position in Group G. The home team has 16 points and a 21-3 goal difference. Of course they will not refuse a draw, since it will keep them on the first place.
On the other hand, Italy are in a similar situation. They have 16 points, just like their opponents, but a weaker goal difference, with 18 goals scored and four conceded. Verratti and his teammates need three points if they want the first place of the group, but a draw would not be so bad, since they maintain a good chance for top position as well. Italy are yet to win an away game against Spain.
Prediction: Under 2,5 goals @ 1.57
We expect a tight game and niether team will risk very much here, since a defeat could be fatal. Just like in the reverse fixture, it’s going to be a well balanced match and we decided to bet on maximum two goals.
Betting tips – CSKA Moscow vs Lokmotiv Moscow – 21.07.2017
The first game on the list in Russian Premier League second round will put face to face two sides from Moscow. More exaclty, CSKA will welcome Lokomotiv from 17:30, UK Time.
CSKA Moscow had a good start in the new campaing, winning 3-1 over Anzi Makhackala away from home. They are currently on the leading position, but the season just started. CSKA lost no home game against today’s opponents in the past five years. More exactly, they have recorded four wins and one draw in the last five seasons in front of the own fans.
On the other hand, Lokomotiv Moscow have started really well the new campaing too, winning 1-0 over Arsenal Tula few days ago. Their last win at this stadium took place in March 2012, 2-0 in a league match as well. Lokomotiv Moscow are underdogs at the bookmakers, with odds around 4.40 for a victory and 3.45 for a draw this Friday evening.
Prediction: 1 @ 1.75
We decided to go for a simple bet here. CSKA Moscow have the fans behind and they are in a good form right now. More than that, they have a good home record against Lokomotiv in the past five years.
Betting tips – Galway vs Limerick – 07.07.2017
Galway and Limerick will be face to face today in the 21st round o Irish Premier Division. The kick off is set at 19:45 and it’s going to be an interesting game.
Galway failed to impress in the first part of the season, proof that they are on the last position, fighting to get out of relegation zone. To be more precise, the hosts have 16 points and a negative goal difference, 18-30. Galway won only two games this campaign in the domestic league, both of them on the own ground, so nothing is excluded.
Limerick, on the other hand, have won the last official trip here, 3-1 back in October 2015. The visitors are a mid-table side after 20 rounds this season. More exactly, they are on the 6th place in Ireland, with 27 points, six behind the podium, but with a match in hand. Limerick have a 30-30 goal difference, with a good attack, but a weak defense.
Prediction: X2 @ 1.44
We expect the better side to show its superiority here and that is Limerick in our opinion. We decided to go for a double chance bet, expecting the visitors to get at least a draw here.
Betting tips – Chile vs Germany – 02.07.2017
Chile and Germany are the protagonists of Confederation Cup final this year. The game is scheduled for July 2nd and it starts at 19:00.
Copa America winners have started this tournament with a victory over Cameroon, 2-0. Then they ticked two draws in group-stage, 1-1 vs Germany and 1-1 vs Australia. After that, they faced Portugal in the semifinals, ticking another draw. It was 0-0 after 120 minutes of play and Chile won at penalty kicks, 3-0. We could see Vidal being used as false number 9 again.
Germany are likely to continue with their three centre backs system. Joachim Low left few important players out of this tournament, but even so, he has a strong squad. The Germans did well so far, winning the Group B with seven points out of nine. Then they eliminated Mexico in the semifinals, winning 4-1 without any problem. Germany have recorded four wins and one draw against Chile in football history.
Chile vs Germany probable lineups:
Chile (4-3-3): Bravo – Isla, Jara, Medel, Beauseour – Aranguiz, Diaz, Hernandez – Vargas, Vidal, Sanchez.
Germany (3-4-2-1): Stegen – Kimmich, Rudiger, Ginter – Henrichs, Rudy, Goretzka, Hector – Draxler, Stindl – Werner.
Prediction: 1X @ 1.53
Chile have shown a good game at this tournament and they are still undefeated. We expect another tight duel between these two sides and we decided to bet on Chile to get at least a draw after 90 minutes.
