Carling Cup: Manchester City vs. Arsenal

In Carling Cup, Football on November 30, 2009 at 19:46

By Joe, www.Bettingexpert.com

Adebayor created all the headlines for the wrong reason in the recent tie. Could he be back with some more?

Midweek football and this time it’s the quarterfinals for the Carling Cup. Arsenal will travel to Manchester City Wednesday evening in order to fight it out for a place in the semifinal. Both sides have recently distant themselves from the Premiership title and it looks likely they will have to find some silverware this season elsewhere.

Manchester City reached the quarterfinals by beating Scunthorpe 5-1 at home in the last round. A few of their key players played that night, Stephan Ireland, Carlos Tevez and Lescott were presented that night. Manager Mark Hughes will most likely deploy a more or less first eleven with a few bench players given a rare start like Roque Santa Cruz. The Saudi own club wants to win all the silverware they can get this season and the League Cup could be their realistic target for now.

The Gunners will have to find their spirits in order to overcome one of the richest clubs in England. They lost 3-0 in the weekend to Chelsea at the Emirates and the title hopes could have also dashed as Manager Arsene Wenger further complained about his injury list causalities. Wenger will be sticking to his policy in fielding his youngest so expect players like Vela, Eduardo, Denilson, Walcott, Ramsey and Fabianksi to start. Arsenal excels in the Carling Cup and they can’t be underestimated in this competition. There will be no Van Persie, Clichy, Sagna, Bendtner, Gibbs or Diaby.

The dilemma lies with Manchester City’s boss, does he field a strong team and get embarrassed by Arsenal under-18 team or field a weaker side and lose to the Gunners? Arsenal beat Liverpool 2-1 to get the quarterfinals so whoever Wenger fields on the day could well do the job. The Gunners youngsters are well hungry for some silverware and the question for the City, are you? The last time these two teams met in the Carling Cup at the Manchester City stadium, Arsenal won 2-1 and advance through to the next round.

Premier League: Arsenal vs. Chelsea

In Barclays Premiership League, Football on November 25, 2009 at 11:38

By Joe, www.Bettingexpert.com

Could there be another brawl at the Emirates? The London derby is one of the most heated matches in Premier League.

From the Merseyside derby to the London derby, it is sure a Super Sunday for all the Football fans in the world. The London derby will be an interesting one as it could determine where the Premiership will go this season. Chelsea are leading the table and if they win at the Emirates then it would be a two legged horse race between the blues and Manchester United. Arsenal will have to dig deep to avoid this.

The North side of London will be contesting for the top spots in the Premier League. They are currently third in the league and eight points behind their London rival, Chelsea, at the top. Many have doubted Arsene Wenger’s kid this season but it seems like they are finding their stride. They reached the last 16 of the Champions League in the midweek after beating Standard Liege 2-0 at home. The French manager will be happy to put away another London rival at the Emirates after disposing Tottenham with 3-0. Wenger is concerned over the injuries of Kieran Gibbs, Andrey Arshavin and William Gallas. Gibbs is out after needing a metatarsal surgery while Gallas has an ankle injury.  Theo Walcott and Samir Nasir are set to play a role in the London derby.

Leading the Premiership with 5 points to the closest rival, qualify for the last 16 in the Champions League and playing at the top of their form, could Chelsea continue their winning streak without Frank Lampard? Chelsea have depth in the squad and that could bring the Premiership title back to Stamford Bridge since 2006. Manager Carlo Ancelotti has inherited a good bunch of players and now managing them looks simple. Ancoletti will be without Frank Lampard and Jose Bosingwa for the London derby. Michael Ballack and Deco are set to return to the starting lineup while Essien and Drogba are back after complains over receiving knocks in the midweek.

Massive brawl whenever these two teams meet and it will not be the last of it. Chelsea have the upper advantage going into this match, they beat Arsenal twice, 4-1 in the Premier League and 2-1 in the FA Cup at the Emirates Stadium. Arsene Wenger will be desperate to claim one over the Chelsea team as he wants to close the gap between them. A stalemate could be reached but without the inspirational Frank Lampard, anything can happen.

Premier League: Everton vs. Liverpool

In Barclays Premiership League, Football on November 25, 2009 at 11:06

By Joe, www.Bettingexpert.com

Since the arrival of Fernando Torres to Liverpool, Everton fans have dreaded to see the Liverpool topscorer banging in goal at Goodison Park.

All the important matches are coming thick and thin for Liverpool as fight another day in the Premiership against their bitter rivals, Everton. The Merseyside derby is usually a pretty much heat affair with the Red side of Liverpool claiming an advantage when it comes to the Premier League matches. Both teams will do their best in order to get one over the other in the league.

Everton will have to go all the way back to 2006 to find a victory over Liverpool in the Premiership. That day they record a 3-0 win over Liverpool where Tim Cahill and Andrew Johnson were on target. Although, David Moyes will want to remember their recent 1-0 after extra time in the FA Cup last season as the benchmark going into this game. The Toffee manager will be with Phil Neville, Mikel Arteta, Phil Jagielka, Victor Anichebe, James Vaughan and Leon Osman. Fellaini & Bilyaletdinov will return back to the squad after serving a one match suspension against Hull.

Liverpool are going through rough times and maybe the game against their neighbors might have come a bit early. Manager Rafa Benitez will find it hard to keep his job if he loses to Everton and fall even more behind from a Champions League spot next season. They were dumped out of the Champions League in the midweek even though they beat Debreceni 1-0 away. Benitez will be hoping that Fernando Torres will return to the starting lineup after 3 weeks off with an ankle injury. Ryan Babel and Albert Riera are ruled doubtful to face Everton.

Don’t expect pretty football when these two teams meet on Sunday. We will be lucky if we will see some good football played at Goodison Park, it is more likely that yellow and red cards will be flying around instead. It will be a physical affair as both teams are desperate for three points while not for filling their potential.

Champions League: Inter Milan vs. Barcelona

In Champions League, Football on November 21, 2009 at 22:27

By Joe, www.Bettingexpert.com

Henry can do his magic at the San Siro, he might not need his hands for this.

Group F is still wide open for any teams to qualify for the next round in the Champions League. Inter Milan tops the group but there is only 2 points difference from the bottom of the group. Whoever wins the tie between Inter and Barcelona could have one foot in the next round, a draw will fuel more excitement for the finale match 2 weeks from now. But first, there is a titanic tie at the San Siro, Tuesday evening where the Italian champions host the reigning Champions League and Spanish champion, Barcelona.

Inter are front runners for qualifying for the next round and their weekend 3-1 away win against Bologna certainly sets an expectation for the tie against Barcelona this coming Tuesday. Jose Mourinho is having  management issue with Mario Balotelli so expect Samuel Eto to start against his former club. Inter could be without young full-back Davide Santon, teenage Nigerian Joel Chukwuma Obi and influential Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder as they are unavailable due to injury.

The defending champions are in trouble as they 3rd in their group and leveled with Rubin Kazan at 5 points. They will need to win at the San Siro to put pressure on the others in the group. It could be a tough task for Barcelona as they drew 1-1 at the Nou Camp in Match day 1. The Catalan club will need Leo Messi, doubtful after incurring a facial injury vs. Bilbao, and Henry to pull out their best in order to escape elimination in the Champions League. Daniel Alves is currently at his top form and he could be on the verge to score a free kick goal if he gets the chance. Eric Abidal and Toure Yaya will not travel to Italy after contracting swine flu and now under quarantine.

Whoever loses this match could get knocked out of the Champions League so no one will give any quarters in the San Siro. A stalemate will most likely be the only option out for the neutrals but the Inter faithful will want their team to advance through on the night. Barcelona could well be the first team not to qualify for the last 16 as the reigning champion. The return of Swedish, Zlatan Ibrahimovic could haunt his old club.

Champions League: Debreceni vs. Liverpool

In Champions League, Football on November 21, 2009 at 22:05

By Joe, www.Bettingexpert.com

Liverpool will want the ball and they will anything just to get it on Tuesday.

The penultimate round of the Champions League group stage will see Liverpool travel to Budapest to face Hungarian champion, Debreceni. The venue is set to be played in the Stadium Puskas Ferenc, Budapest as Debreceni opt to play their Champions League in the biggest stadium in Hungary. Debreceni’s hope of qualifying for the next round and even for the UEFA Europa League have dashed but Liverpool’s chance for the last 16 is on thin ice.

The home side has struggled in their debut year in the Champions League. They are currently sitting firmly at the bottom of Group E with zero points. They have lost all their matches so far and they will be looking to register their first points in the next two matches. The Hungarian champion has let in on an average of 4 goals when hosting a European team, they are hoping that they will be able to improve their defensive record and tighten up the back 4. With only pride to play for, Debreceni will still make Liverpool work for their points.

If Liverpool wants to stay in this competition then they need win against Debreceni while Lyon doing them a favor against Fiorentina. Rafa Benitez has guided Liverpool into the last 16 in five occasions but this is the first time the Merseyside team’s fate is not in their hands. The Spaniard will need all the firepower he can get from his key players like Steven Gerrard, Fernando Torres and Glen Johnson. Both Johnson and Torres were not fit in the weekend 2-2 draw against Manchester City. Liverpool travels to Hungary in hope to escape early elimination with one ear on the score from Florence while playing to win in Budapest. Torres has not traveled with Liverpool to Budapest.

Liverpool are favorites against Debreceni as it is a must win match for them. They could end up playing in the Europa League next year or Champions League and we all know Liverpool would choose the prestige tournament, Champions League, as they are five times winners. Dirk Kuyt scored the only goal in the first ever meeting between Liverpool and Debreceni in Match day 1. The Dutchman will have to find his shooting boots out again if Liverpool stands a chance to qualify.

Premier League: Tottenham vs. Wigan Athletic

In Barclays Premiership League, Football on November 19, 2009 at 10:57

By Joe, www.Bettingexpert.com

Spurs are looking to brush Wigan aside to maintain their status at the top of the Premiership

Tottenham wants to break into the Big 4 domination in the Premiership and they are surely on the right track under Harry Redknapp’s helm. Wigan have seen tougher situation than they are dealing with at the moment. Manager Sanchez has done well at Wigan keeping them out of the relegation zone but tougher times are ahead as the season does not end in November. Both teams will have to continue what they set out to but there can be only one winner at the end of the day.

More Premiership review here

The North London team are searching for another three points at home to keep up with both Arsenal and league leader, Chelsea, at the top. It is not a surprise that Manager Harry Redknapp has leaded them to fight for a place amongst the Big 4 this season. They started on a high this season but fell back down to earth after a 3-0 defeat to their neighbors, Arsenal. Then a home win against Sunderland, a fortnight ago, has helped Spurs finding their confidence yet again. The bad news to hit the club is that keeper Cudicini has broken both his wrist and pelvis in a motorbike incident. Redknapp might not have the service of Aaron Lennon, Dos Santos, Bassong and Luka Modric as they are all ruled doubtful. Spurs have signed a teenage Sam Cox on a month long loan while Pavlyuchenko is looking for an exit at White Hart Lane.

Wigan will not be complaining much with their status in the Premiership. They are currently 13th in the league and 4 points from the relegation zone. They record away from home is somewhat perceived as what a mid table should be, 6 games play, 2 wins and 4 defeats. Their only two wins came against Aston Villa, in the season premiere, and last month 3-1 win against Burnley. Although, Tottenham will be a tougher opposition and Manager Sanchez will need to strengthen his men at the back. Titus Bramble looks bewildered in my situation during the game and Wigan should be worried if he has one of his moments. M. Figueroa will not travel to London as he is rule out with a knee ligament injury.

Spurs have spent more money than the big 4 this season and this really signs out the messages that if you want to be big team, you will need to spend some money, just look at Manchester City. The best result Wigan have got from White Hart Lane is a 2-2 result back in 2006, otherwise Spurs have the advantage. Their recent meeting ended with a 3-1 win with Roman Pavlyuchenko scoring 2 goals and one Luka Modric. Fortunately for Wigan, it is most likely that both players will not feature in the starting lineup but then again Wigan needs to contend with Jenas, Milner, Dafoe, Crouch and Keane. With this firepower on the Spurs team, they are favorites at home to beat mid table Wigan.

Premier League: Liverpool vs. Manchester City

In Barclays Premiership League, Football on November 17, 2009 at 14:28

By Joe, www.Bettingexpert.com

Torres could set to return to face Manchester City in Anfield. The Spaniard would not mind scoring against City again.

Liverpool could not have asked a better time for the International break to intervene as their squad is struggling to knock off injuries and a string of disappointing results. They were the last Premiership team to play a game a fortnight ago and now they will have the honor to start the Premiership fixture as they face Manchester City at Anfield in a Saturday early afternoon kickoff. Both teams are in search for the three points to keep up with Chelsea at the top of the table.

Manager Rafa Benitez must be pinching himself just to make sure whether the injuries crisis situation with his squad is real. He lost Yossi Benayoun and Albert Riera for there to four week after getting injured in the 2-2 draw against Birmingham. Steven Gerrard made a comeback that night and he is expected to return against Manchester City. There is some doubts over Glen Johnsen, Daniel Agger and Fernando Torres as all of them have withdrew from national duties to nurse their injury. Jamie Carragher will return from his suspension and Fabio Aurelio is still out injured. Every game for Liverpool will be a FA cup feel to it as they trail league leaders, Chelsea, by 10 points. Benitez will have to come up with the good against Manchester City or else the next year’s Champions League spot could also be in danger.

Manchester City have drawn four of their last premiership matches and they could continue this streak at Anfield Road this Saturday. Manager Mark Hughes will look to change this trend City have embarked on. Their last match against Burnley revealed their defense loses concentration and marginal defensive errors which cost hem the victory. Hughes is hoping that star player Robinho could return to first team action and if not, there will be many others prepared to take his place. Martin Petrov, Craig Bellamy, Robinho, Nedum Onuoha and Benjani are all ruled out.

Liverpool looks more and more desperate each time they go on the field. Hopefully the Reds will be able to put out their strongest team to regain their last season’s good form. Manchester City will not worry too much of the issue Liverpool is dealing with, they will focus on their play and try to continue their quest in breaking into the big 4 domination in the Premiership. A win for either team could get their season on the way. Liverpool looks likely to fight for their lives to keep their hopes up.

World Cup: France vs. Ireland

In Football, World Cup 2010 on November 16, 2009 at 10:05

By Joe, www.Bettingexpert.com

FBL-WC2010-IRE-FRA

French forward Nicolas Anelka was the difference between the two teams last time they met.

The first leg Croke Park ended with a  French victory with an Anelka deflected 72-minute goal which put France in a commanding position before the return leg in Paris. It will be hard to see how the Irish will manage to come back from their disappointing performance in Dublin. The scene is set for another epic battle in Paris between France and Ireland to battle it out for one of the four spots left in the European zone to qualify for the World Cup.

France are favorites to qualify ahead of the second leg and Coach Raymond Domenech could earn himself another chance to prove himself. Domenech does not need to change much of his tactic nor his starting lineup on Wednesday as they did well against Ireland. The only incident that the French came into tussle was the bust up between Ireland midfielder Keith Andrews and France’s Lassana Diarra after the final whistle. A few words were exchange and it seem like Diarra had made some disrespectful comment over the Irish squad. French full-back Eric Abidal and Jeremy Toulalan will miss Wednesday’s game.

Coach Giovanni Trapattoni gave the thumps up for Liam Lawrence on the right side of the midfield in the first leg against France and looks likely to keep it the same for the second leg. Ireland played well but missed a few chances to take the lead in the first leg, they now travel to Paris in search for, at least, a goal to take it to extra time or penalties. A clean sheet and two goal win will put Ireland through to the World Cup. Trapattoni could well in for the same line up that started against France last Saturday. Robbie Keane is rallying the troop and motivating them for the tough task ahead of the second leg.

From Croke Park to Stade de France, this is the Irish’s last chance to qualify for the World Cup. France are sitting comfortably with the 1-0 lead and could settle the tie with another goal in Paris. Ireland will have all to play for and they will attack without thinking the consequences which will make this one of the exciting ties of the night. If anything is to go by from the last match’s bust up in Croke Park, then Stade de France will provide the fireworks.

World Cup Playoff: Portugal vs. Bosnia-Herzegovina

Ronaldo

Cristano Ronaldo won't be able to help his country out but Portugal can still qualify without his help

Portugal have been one of the major football nation to emerge in the last tournament in the European Championship and the World Cup. This time they face elimination threat as they face Bosnia-Herzegovina in a playoff two legged tie.  Danmark and Sweden qualified ahead of Portugal in the group and the Portuguese are desperate to join the others in the prestige tournament next summer.

Portugal are in this situation simply because they could not overcome the absence of their best player Cristiano Ronaldo. He is included in the squad against Bosnia but a rift between his club Real Madrid and country have appeared to resulted that he will not be fit for the match. Portugal Coach Carlos Queiroz has picked his 23 man squad and expect Ricardo Costa, Deco, Tiago, Nani, Simao and Richardo Carvalho in the starting lineup. He is also boosted with Hugo Almeida and Miguel returning from fitness.

Bosnia-Herzegovina finished second in their group behind European Champions, Spain. Head Coach Miroslav Blažević will be plotting his master plan to evict Portugal in this vital playoff two legged tie. Two players that Bosnia will count on in taking them to the world cup are Zlatan Muslimovic, from Udinese, and Edin Dzeko, Wolfsburg. Both players are top scorer for their country and if they can get things going then the Portuguese might find it tough to handle them. Bosnia will do their best to qualify for the world cup for the first time in their history.

It will be a tragedy if Portugal does not make it to the World Cup but a strong bond Bosnia team are a good replacement for them. Portugal will do their best to wrap up the tie in Lissabon and if that happens, Bosnia will be facing a uphill struggle to qualify. Bosnia knows this is already a tough task so they would try to avoid getting trashed in Portugal, if possible.
