Paris Saint Germain is expected to have an easy game in the 2nd leg, when they will host a Bayer Leverkusen facing problems.
Having lost to Barcelona last year in the quarterfinals, PSG looks forward to shine on the European scene this season. Having won 5 out of 5 last matches in all competitions, and with a 4-0 in the 1st leg, the French are more confident than ever. Matuidi, Cabaye and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were the ones to score in the away game. Laurent Blanc will be able to count on them for the Tuesday match also.
On the other hand, the Germans will have a tough time with Kruse, Hegeler, Bender and Toprak forced to stay out of the pitch because of injury problems. Domestically, Bayern Leverkusen is also having problems, dropping to the 3rd place of Bundesliga table. They finally broke their series of 3 defeats in a row, with a 1-1 draw at Hannover in their last match, with Gonzalo Castro the one to score.
And as if this wasn’t enough, 5 of Leverkusen’s players have been booked in the 1st leg, while Emir Spahic is unavailable after getting a red card. On the French side, only Matuidi has to play a more careful game.
We will place 7.00 units at bet365 for a 2-0 win by PSG, with the bookmaker offering a 7.50 odd for this result. The same bookmaker has a PSG victory priced at 1.50, a draw stands for 5.00, while Bayer Leverkusen’s chances of winning the game are offered an odd of 9.00. For the chances of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score 2 or more goals, bet365 is offering an odd of 3.50.
Manchester City won their first trophy of the season, by coming back from a 0-1 deficit to win with 3-1 against Sunderland. The bet we placed with 12BET on them to win to nil didn’t pay off in the end, yet it still was a highly entertaining match.
The Citizens are en route to all the other existing domestic trophies, and last night’s match proved they only have themselves to beat in order to emerge as winners. it was their won fear of not losing that made them look bleak, unimpressive and apparently doomed when Sunderland opened the score on the 10th minute when Borini used the outside part of his right foot to convert from Adam Johnson’s pass.
Sunderland was undisputedly the better team in the first half, yet the second one saw a different Manchester City. The Citizens went back to their dominating ways and the equalizer came on the 55th minute when Zabaleta assisted Toure for an amazing, 25 meters goal. Nasri made it 2-1 just three minutes later after a deflected cross from John O’Shea.
Manchester City sealed the match on the 90th minute when Jesus Navas finished off a quick pass from Toure. Sunderland has nothing to mourn, they were at level of performance with a team battling for the Premier League title, and if they continue like this they might as well stay in the League next year.
Result: -5 units, bet lost
We used 12BET odds to predict an odd number of goals in the Everton vs West Ham match, and it turned out we won as the hosts scored a goal to secure the three points. The hosts had over 67% ball possession and still missed the opportunity and the memo to create any valuable chances.
West Ham sat back and waited Everton out to commit a mistake that would allow them either to score a goal or walk away with a point. The second half was when the pace of the match picked up and Everton went into West Ham’s half looking for the goal that never came. Everything changed once Lukaku came on as a substitute to Osman.
This forced West Ham to change the formation which allowed the Everton players to create much more chances starting from either wing until Lukaku scored the only goal of the match on the 81 minute after a cross from Baines. With these three points Everton have the same number of points as Manchester United and Lukaku has now scored twice against West Ham with only 10 minutes to the end of regular time.
Everton had 22 shots during the entire match, out of which only three were on target, and West Ham increased their negative record of being unable to keep a clean sheet against Everton in their last 11 head to head matches.
Result: +7 units, bet won
Ernesto Valverde knew what he was talking about when he dismissed the press suggestions that Athletic Club was having problems due to their recent results. Bilbao won with 4-0 in front of their supporters, but we lost the bet placed with Titan Bet on the second half to have the majority of goals.
Alduriz was Bilbao’s hero after he completed a hat-trick which paired up with Gurpegui’s goal gave Granada no room for further replies. The score was opened on the 7th minute when Aduriz finished off a move started on the right wing. After the first goal Bilbao took charge of the match which gave them a great number of chances. One of them was converted into a goal on the 18th minute when Susaeta fooled Granada’s defense and passed the ball over the defenders for Alduriz to make it 2-0.
Granada was useless in the attack which allowed the hosts to set pretty easily into their game, and the score could have been higher if Roberto wasn’t in such good shape. There was also an offside controversy involved as Granada had a clear shot to score, but El Arabi was offside, as flagged by the linesman.
In the second half Granada had another clear chance to score when Pereira’s cross was deflected with difficulty by Iraola. It was already 3-0 in the 80th minute, but Gurpergui decided to add another goal to Granada’s misery when his shot from the edge of the box flew past the goalkeeper. After the match the visitors were down, yet they need to be thankful to Roberto for saving them on numerous occasions.
Result: -6 units, bet lost
Manchester City is set to win their first trophy of the season as they meet Sunderland in the League Cup final. The Citizens are the favorites to win this match considering they need to get back in shape and they have up to five players who could be backed up for the goalscorer market. To bet on the potential Man City win we are going to use the odds from 12BET.
Sunderland lost against Arsenal with a staggering 4-1, which prompted Gus Poyet to state that he is going to change the entire squad against Manchester City. Provided he is serious, changes are to be expected. This match would be the perfect opportunity for the debut of Sunderland’s newest signing. Giaccerini is poised to be the one player able to stun the Citizens, and his manner of play could be crucial for the outcome.
Manchester City has been in three League Cups so far and ended up winning two of them, each match ended with a 2-1 score. It is expected they will push towards complete dominance on the field, and to score an early goal. Toure, David Silva and Alvaro Negredo are the front runners in the goalscorer market. Even though Sunderland qualified to the final after defeating Chelsea London and Manchester United, there aren’t many people left who will doubt Man City’s supremacy. This being said we are going to bet 5 units on Manchester City to win to nil with 2.13 12BET odd.
