Chelsea – Newcastle [Prediction]

May 15, 2011 0 Betting, Soccer, Sports

Prediction: Fernando Torres to score twice

Stake: 3/1

Match date: May 15

Competition: Premier League

Stadium: Stamford Bridge

 

In this final home game for Chelsea this season, the team from Stamford Bridge have to secure their second place in the Premier League, after losing the change to finish first last match, when they lost 2-1 against Manchester United. It’s a pity they lost that game, since before that game Chelsea got 25 points out of their last 9 games and got back on track after a bad start of the season. And get this: it coincided with the record signing of Fernando Torres from Liverpool!

In the game against Manchester United, Mancini decided not to use Torres, and perhaps he regrets it now. Maybe that’s why he announced Torres will be playing tonight. Probably in place of Anelka. Mancini will have to do without Jose Bosingwa and Bertrand, bouth out with injuries. On the other side, Newcastle will probably miss Smith, doubtful ahead of the game.

And now for the football prediction. With Newcastle lacking a proper goal scorer after selling Andy Carroll to Liverpool, and with Chelsea’s Fernando Torres desperate to improve his goal record, I predict a clear victory for Chelsea. That’s one football tip you can take away from this post. A second soccer tip is that Fernando Torres will score. I bet on him scoring twice for just one unit, but I am confindent he will do it at least once. Oh, and if you want another sports betting tip, go for an over 2.5 goals!

Napoli – Inter Milan [Prediction]

May 15, 2011 1 Betting, Soccer, Sports

Prediction: Scoreless draw

Stake: 19/20 and 19/20

Match date: May 15

Competition: Serie A

Stadium: San Paolo, Napoli

 

This last game of Serie A sees two top-teams fight for glory (and just glory since there’s not much left to change in the table) tonight. The 2nd team in Serie A and the former champions of Italy, Inter Milan will travel to Napoli tonight to meet SSC Napoli, the 3rd team in the Italian championship. A prediction here is fairly easy (I would say), considering both teams’ record on San Paolo venue. But I’ll discuss soccer tips a bit later.

Ahead of tonight’s game there have been announced some big-name absentees from both sides. For Napoli Edinson Cavani and Giuseppe Mascara are not playing because both are banned. For Inter, Dutchman Wesley Sneijder is out with an injury for sure, while Dejan Stankovic is doubtful.

Looking at both teams’ form, Inter is doing much better, having won their last 3 games. Napoli lost 3 out of their last 4 games, including a shameful defeat last time against Lecce. The problem with Inter is that they’re reluctant to score away, especially when playing Napoli. They haven’t scored at all in Naples during Inter’s last four encounters with SSC Napoli. And now that two important forwards are out of their squad, I don’t see the Neroazzurri do much better than before.

I predict a scoreless draw and I’m willing to stake 2 units for a draw on Bwin at 19/20 odds. A bet on either team is much more attractive (both have the same odds at 5/2), but it’s unlikely that this game will have a winner. Also, I’m going for an Under 2.5 goals bet for 1 unit at 19/20 odds. LET THE GAME BEGIN!!

Man City – Stoke [Prediction]

May 14, 2011 0 Betting, Soccer, Sports

Prediction: Man City to win, under 2.5 goals

Stake: 10/11 and 4/6

Match date: May 14

Competition: FA Cup Final

Stadium: Wembley, London

 

The long-expected FA Cup Final is finally here and my soccer prediction comes with it. It will be a strange FA Cup Final, since we don’t get to see any of the big names who traditionally fight for this trophy. In fact the last big name, Manchester United, were kicked out in the semis by their arch-rivals Manchester City at one goal difference.

Neither of these two teams have won anything in ages. Man City’s most recent trophy was the League cup in 1976, whereas for Stoke City, their last and only trophy was in 1972. So chances are, and as a sports bettor I trust the statistics, both teams will take this final very seriously. Manchester City already played it 8 times (4 wins, 4 losses), but it’s the first time that Stoke is playing it. Tensions will be high in the crowds.

Both teams are known for their defensive styles. And though Stoke has had a very good run (5-0 against Bolton and 3-1 against Arsenal), they usually rather defend and go for counter-attacks when they have the chance. Manchester City on the other hand has some fabulous talent in front (Balotelli, Tevez, Dzeko being their stars), but in their past 6 games they only once scored 2 goals.

I’m going for an under 2.5 goals at 4/6 stakes on bet365 for 3 units. And I’m also favoring Man City to win, although the stake is kind of low at 10/11 on bet365. That’s why I’m putting 4 units on this one.

Weekend ahead!

Wow, I’m glad to be finally posting again here. I actually started “working” on my blog this week, trying to get some link exchanges. I met lots of passionate sports bloggers and closed some neat deals 😀

And now the weekend is approaching. And with it, the juicy soccer games of the European leagues. I’m going to keep my eyes on the following:

 

Saturday

Manchester City vs. Stoke (16.00 CET) – FA Cup final

 

Sunday

Chelsea vs. Newcastle (14.30 CET) – English Premier League

Napoli vs. Inter Milan (21.45 CET) – Italian Serie A

 

I’m looking forward to placing some soccer bets and winning some units. I haven’t yet had time to study the teams very well, so I can’t make any predictions now. Tomorrow though I will look into that and post on the blog as well.

Hope you all have a great weekend! By the way, if you have any “inside info” on these matches, DO let me know!

Liverpool – Fulham [Recap]

January 28, 2011 0 Betting, Recaps, Soccer, Sports

Though Liverpool didn’t perform quite as well as I had expected, they were still able to bring about a 1:0 win against Fulham Wednesday.

For those who didn’t catch the game – the Reds got into the lead 52 minutes into the match when a shot by Fernando Torres was initially deflected and then knocked into the net by Fulham player John Pantsil. All in all Fulham performed reasonably well but still weren’t able to hold up against Liverpool.

This win brings Liverpool up to seventh place in the Premier League. Fulham falls to number 15 – just four points from the bottom three.
