CHAMPIONS LEAGUE -- GROUPS G & H
2021-11-01

In group G, there is a clash of the Titans again: Group leaders Real Madrid (9 points, +115) will go to Giuseppe Meazza stadium in Milano to battle AC Milan (4 points, +215), in their first game with former FIFA Player of the Year and World Champion Zinedine Zidane as Mourinho's assistant. With such a fantastic addition to their technical staff, one can only imagine the motivation of the players to do their best in Italy. Zidane is in a way coming back to the game that gave him so much, and to which he gave pearls of craftsmanship that have stayed carved in the memory of millions of soccer fans around the world. I would even dare to say that Zizou is looking for a little redemption, to help erase the last dramatic image of his aggression to Marco Materazzi in 2006 World Cup Final. It looks like a very even match though, and I say that both teams will bring a hell of a show in a tied and hardly fought game. The odds for that to happen are +235, by the way…
In the other game of this group, Ajax (4 points, +150) travels to France to play against Auxerre (0 points, +165). Even though the odds are quite even in this line, I can not avoid thinking about the terrible season Auxerre is having in their home league, playing against many teams that do not even have half the strength Ajax has. I think it will be a clear and undisputed win for the Dutch team. Period.
In group H, there are a couple of very entertaining games. First, Ukraine’s Shakthar (6 points) will receive the visit of leader Arsenal (9 points +130), having the painful remembrance of their 0-5 defeat in London in the last matchday. Despite that amazing difference, I think the Ukranians will have a very different attitude in this game, and supported by their noisy and loyal fans, they have great chances of a tie (+225) or even a win (+195). Let’s see…
Also in group H, Partizan Belgrade (0 points, +130) will play home against Portuguese Sporting Braga (3 points, +195). Eager for their first win in the competition, the Serbians might very well get it against a Braga that is not as surprising as it was in the qualifying stage, where they knocked Celtic Glasgow and Sevilla from Spain out of this competition. It seems that Partizan will have their sweet revenge, turning this group into a very interesting one towards the last 2 games…

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE -- GROUPS C & D
2021-11-01

This coming Tuesday we will also see some action in group C, where Manchester United is in the lead with 7 points, closely followed by Scottish champs Rangers with 5, and Valencia with 4. Turkish champ Bursaspor has had a rough time, since the have 0 points, but that doe not necessarily mean that they can not ruin one of the other team's aspirations with a tie and why not?, maybe even a victory. You know what they say about teams that have nothing to lose being the most dangerous ones...
Manchester United will receive Bursaspor in Old Trafford. The Turkish are +425, and Manchester is -166. Easy money in this one. When I said Bursaspor is a team to be careful with, I meant Valencia or Rangers, but not Manchester!
Spanish Valencia (-285) will receive a devalued Rangers (+725), who will not be able to play with their starter forward James Beattie because of an injury that is been troubling hin since last September 11. He was able to play in their 3-1 win against Celtic last week, but he injured again, so there is one more negative mark to add to the fact that they will be playing Valencia as visitors...
In Group D, Barcelona is the leader with 7 points, followed by Danish Kopenhagen with 6, then Rubin Kazan with 2 and Panathinaikos with 1 point. Barcelona just comes from crushing Sevilla 5-0 last Saturday, with 2 goals of Argentinean star Lionel Messi. who seems back on track after the brutal injury he suffered by Atletico Madrid`s defender Ujfalusi for the Spanish league. They will be receiving Kopenhagen in a new opportunity to show their power in front of their people. Barca is -222, and the Danish +550. Pretty convincing numbers, don't you think?
The other game has Greek Panathinaikos (+485) travelling to hostile Russia to face Rubin Kazan (-181), a match with very uneven odds as well. As uneven as they might seem, there is still a very small chance that we see a tie in this one, but like I said, very small one. Why? Because Panathinaikos is a very hard fighting team, and not everything is lost for them yet. This is just a crazy hunch, even though the Russian victory seems obviuos to many, something tells me that the Greek might take something more than a nice trip to Russia out of this one...


UEFA Champions League -- Groups A and B
2021-11-01

It's another exciting round of UEFA Champions League this coming Tuesday and Wednesday, with 32 teams fighting for a ticket in the second round of this prestigious competition. This round is the start of the "payback games", when the teams will face themselves for the second time.
Starting with group A, where Inter Milan is first with 7 points, followed by Tottenham with 4 and Werder Bremen and Twente, both with 2 points. The English are receiving Inter Milan at White Hart Lane stadium, where they will be a very difficult opponent for the current UCL champions. Tottenham had a very demanding match against Manchester United last Saturday (they lost 2-0), and maybe their physical condition will not be at its best. However, they are a very complicated oponent, with dangerous and rapid wingers that could do great harm to any defense, as Bale showed by scoring 3 goals against the same Inter in their 3-4 loss last October 20th. Tottenham is +170 in this one, and Inter is +145. The Italians could not have their star goalie Julio Cesar because of an injury he suffered in their last Serie A game (a win against Genoa), so there is a big chance that Tottenham can win this game.
In the other game in group A, both teams need to get a positive result, because if they don`t, they could end up very far from the rest with only 2 games left. Twente Entshede is going to Germany to face Werder Bremen, a team that is excellent at home, with a good balance between attack and defense, and that has the fantastic Claudio Pizarro, who some days ago reached the mark of becoming the highest scoring foreign player in Bundesliga history. However, the "Reds from Entschede" are not short on motivation either, since they come from defeating none other than PSV Eindhoven 1-0 at Phillipsstadion in Eindhoven. And Twente did not only regain the lead in the Dutch championship by doing that, they also beat the same team that smashed European heavyweight Feyenoord 10-0 last week. So, given the motivation the Dutch squad has, I`d say there are some attractive chances to bet for a tie in this one. Werder Bremen is -166, Twente is +425, and the tie is +275.
Group B hasOlympique Lyon as a solitary leader with 9 points, followed by Schalke 04 with 6 units, then comes Benfica with 3, and Hapoel Tel Aviv with 0
Hapoel Tel Aviv (+275) receiving the visit of German Schalke 04 (-117), in what the odds think will be a not very complicated win for the Germans, led by Spanish superstar Raul, who just tied Gerd Muller`s UEFA Champions League scoring record, reaching the astonishing number of 69 goals. There is no doubt he will go out in Israel trying to break the record, what does not forecast an easy game for the Israeli defenders...
Also in group B we have Benfica (+110) battling against French Olympique Lyon (+225), in what looks like an even match to me. I know the Portuguese are playing home, but the French are a very solid and dynamic team that knows how to defend. Plus, they are magnificent counterattackers, and even though they lost French forward Cissoko due to an injury, they have enough bench men to replace him. This one looks like a tie to me.


World Cup Final
2021-07-26

July 11, 2010, Soccer City Stadium, Johannesburg, South Africa and the most awaited night of the year!


With the entire wold glued to their T.V sets, and millions of supporters of both the finalists holding their breaths and praying for the victory of their heroes, the golden jabulani was tossed in the air.


The match was a full on entertainer and went on entertaining the world even longer than it was expected to. A very tight match, where both the teams refused to give the other any chance to score, went on and on and on...


It was a great treat to watch as their was a record number of cards that were issued during it. 14 in total, the first card of the game was issued, in the 14th minute itself when, Robin van Persie was booked by Howard Webb.


Netherlands, who were desperate to take the cup home, would do anything for it. They played a very rough game without thinking about anything else but the cup. Joan Capdevila and Xabi Alonso were the victims of their lunges and kicks.


Wesley Sneijder after the nasty attempt to stop Pedro, even successfully diverted attention by acting to get injured himself and all that he got was a warning from the referee. Though Spain did not play innocently, they were majorly at the receiving end of such physical attacks.


The ball possession was majorly with Spain, all thanks to Xavi and Iniesta who were at their very best throughout the game.


Netherlands had got a major chance to take the lead in the second half but, Spain skipper, Iker Casillas made a brilliant save and denied Robben his chance to score. Though Casillus was being kept busy in the other corner, he brilliantly used his leg and sent the ball wide.


John Heitinga was sent out of the game in the extra time following his second yellow card when he pulled Iniesta back. This provided Spain with an advantage in the numbers but the Dutch did not lose their grip on the field.


Just when it seemed that the tie would head into penalties, Andres Iniesta, scored in the 116th minute, 4mins before the end of the extra time.


Iniesta made the final move in making Spain the world champions for the first time in the history of the cup.


Spain's characteristic patience could yet again be seen in the final as well. Unlike the Dutch side, there wasn't even a moment of frustration in them when they were not being able to score. They kept their cool and later became triumphant.


Patience and cool was the major problem with Netherlands. They, on the other hand, were very nervous and restless which is evident from the amount of cards that were issued to the team, four yellow cards being issued in the first half of the game itself.


This is the third time that Netherlands has had to face a defeat in the world cup final and it is bound to be difficult for them.


Spain however has taken the cup home for the first time ever, becoming the eight team to be crowned the world champions. Casillas, couldn't stop his tears after the whistle announced their first world cup victory!


The team rejoiced after winning and have provide their country as well as their fans all over the world a wonderful reason to celebrate!!!
