Europa League: Manchester City V Lech Poznan

Manchester City

Group A Position: 2nd

It’s clear that Manchester City are out to prove that money can buy you instant success, and on today will look to stamp their mark on the continental scene, albeit in Europe’s second tier club competition, with an authoritative display against Polish side Lech Poznan at Eastlands. Few would back against them securing the win they need to put themselves in a more comfortable position in the table at the midway stage of proceedings, after the team secured their fourth league win in a row at the weekend following an enthralling 3-2 victory away to Blackpool, coupled with impressive performances against Newcastle United (2-1) and Chelsea (1-0).

A positive response following the 1-1 draw at home to Juventus last time out is what Roberto Mancini is looking for from his players, while there could even be the opportunity for some of the club’s fringe players to make an impression on the tough-talking Italian as we’re anticipating changes from Mancini. Among those who could be rested is star striker Carlos Tevez, who scored twice at the weekend and currently leads the scoring charts in the Premier League with seven goals. The Argentine has been the focal point in what has so far been a promising start to the season back home domestically, with City currently the closest challengers to Chelsea’s crown and sit just two points adrift of the Blues. However, Tevez may be forced to play some part in proceedings should Brazilian striker Jo not prove his fitness in time.

Whatever Mancini decides to do, a strong Manchester City team will take to the field at Eastlands regardless aiming to protect their unbeaten status in Europe this season, winning three of their opening four matches in the competition (Two were in the play-offs, the other away in Salzburg 2-0). Emmanuel Adebayor has come in for heavy criticism this season but is expected to lead the line on today, with Mario Balotelli, Kolou Toure and Alexsander Kolarov the only definite absentee’s.

Despite looking the stronger outfit on paper, but a comfortable margin as well, Mancini must guard against complacency and arrogance from his players, as there was certainly a degree of underestimation in the lead-up to City’s last Europa League clash at home to Juventus, where City had to come from behind in order to avoid defeat on home soil. Their opponents stunned Juventus by drawing 3-3 in Turin first time out so they merit the utmost respect, but a professional display from City should be enough to ensure they claim the three points they need to top the group and thus put them within one more victory of assured progression into the next round.

Lech Poznan

Group A Position: 1st

Underdogs won’t come much bigger than Polish champions Lech Poznan, winners of their sixth Ekstraklasa championship last season and so nearly the first team in Europe this season to claim the scalp of Italian giants Juventus following their 3-3 draw in Turin on Match Day 1. In fact, Lech took a 2-0 lead in that game, and instead of drowning on the their sorrows when throwing away their two goal advantage, they bounced back in style next time out to record a 2-0 win over FC Salzburg in Poland. As a result, the only Polish representative in Europe this season currently reside in top-spot in Group A above their Match Day 3 rivals Manchester City.

Because of their impressive and overachieving start to their European campaign, having registered more points than expected following Group A meetings with Juventus and Salzburg, Lech Poznan players will sleep easy the night before in the knowledge that defeat in England would be a catastrophe, while they can even afford to rest on their laurels and boldly attempt to defend their way to a share of the spoils. There will be absolutely no pressure on Jacek Zielinski’s men to get anything from this game, with many merely expecting them to roll over and accept a spanking from Europe’s newest wannabes, but that’s what makes them dangerous; there’s nothing to lose for the visitors, only a lot to gain.

However, a spanking is just what they will get if they replicate their league form on  today night. Despite clinching the Polish league title last season, Lech Poznan currently find themselves languishing down in 14th position, third from bottom, following a disastrous start to the season which has seen them register just two wins in their opening eight matches. They’re also enduring a miserable run of three successive defeats in the league, four in all competitions, and the chances of them turning the form book completely on its head now look slimmer than ever, with the confidence in camp naturally going to be very low. It could be a case of adrenaline and that only getting them through today night’s daunting encounter.

One player to keep an eye out for is Latvian striker Artoms Rudnevs. While the 22 year-old may have managed just one goal in his opening eight league games this season, Rudnevs stunned the Juventus crowd in Turin on Match Day 1 by scoring a hat-trick, his first goals for the club incidentally.

Match Prediction: Manchester City to WIN – 1.04 NaijaBet

If we were to ignore Lech’s domestic results and concentrate solely on their form in this competition then a difficult night might have been in-store for Roberto Mancini’s and his mega-earners, but their form back home is so dire, against mediocre opposition, that to suggest they can be a match for the might of Man City, who are currently unstoppable in the Premier League and boasting a wealth of talent within their ranks would be ludicrous.

The Polish side may well give as good as they get defensively, perhaps attempting to defend like soldiers in a bid to keep the score at 0-0 for as long as possible, but it should be a formality that City find the breakthrough at some point and once they do it could rain goals in Manchester.

Emmanuel Adebayor could be the player to keep on the right side of on today. While the Togo international hasn’t been in scoring form this season, or any sort of form for that matter, and does appear a want-away striker at present, he will be out to prove a point that he is a valuable asset to the club and that when presented with an opportunity, he can stick them away with aplomb. He could be the main man up front should Carlos Tevez receive a welcomed and deserved rest.

Arsenal v Shakhtar Donetsk: Preview

After Arsène Wenger used his programme notes for Saturday’s clash with Birmingham City at the Emirates to – somewhat predictably – weigh into the heated debate about over-zealous tackling currently doing the rounds , the Frenchman perhaps shouldn’t have been too surprised to then watch Samir Nasri and Emmanuel Eboué kick lumps out of City’s Liam Ridgewell, before 5ft. 8ins Jack Wilshere toppled 6ft. 7½ ins Nikola Žigi? with what could only be politely described as a clumsy lunge. Perhaps he should have picked on someone his own size.

Wenger – to his credit – admitted that Wilshere’s red card was warranted, but after heading into a game where they would have been the ones expected to be on the end of the tasty challenges, the Arsenal players have been experiencing life on the other side of the coin this week as they prepare for the Champions League visit of Shakhtar Donetsk.

“When I tackled him I didn’t want to kill him,” said Eboué of the forceful challenge on Ridgewell that earned him a yellow card. “When I did that tackle I didn’t go through the back. I just wanted to touch the ball.

“The referee (Martin Atkinson) spoke to me after the game and said, ‘Emmanuel, I know you touched the ball but the tackle was very dangerous’. I just said, ‘OK, no problem’. Next time I will be more careful.

“We are not a dirty team. Everyone knows we like to play football and make everyone happy when we play and we like to score. What happened on Saturday is finished. Now when we play we just have to play football and be careful on the pitch.”

Their efforts to ‘play football’ could be helped tonight with the possible return of captain Cesc Fàbregas, who returns after injuring a hamstring at Sunderland a month ago. The skipper may have to be patient though.

“Cesc has prepared well,” said Wenger, whose side take on the only other side in Group H with two wins from two matches tonight. “He had a little setback, but got over the hurdle and is ready to play at full fitness, but whether I start him or not, I do not know yet.

“It will be whether I take a gamble or not, because he has been out for a long time. But physically he is ready and fit – and wanting to play.

“You know his influence on our team, he is our leader, our passer, he has a good level of assists and a good goalscoring record. Ideally you want him in the team.”

Understatements about his captain aside, Wenger will know all about the threat that the Ukrainians of Shakhtar possess – or more specifically their Brazilians.

Samba stars Jádson, Luiz Adriano, Willian and Fernandinho were all key members of the Shakhtar side that won the Uefa Cup in 2009, and while the latter misses out here through injury, the quartet take their place in an impressive squad that also includes Croatian captain Darijo Srna and Ukrainian defender Dmytro Chygrynskiy – back home after a €25million move to Barcelona didn’t exactly work out.

Shakhtar were one of Fulham’s victims during their improbable run to the Europa League final last season, but supporters of the west Londoners claimed that they were the toughest opposition they faced en route, and the north Londoners from the Emirates may be about find out why tonight.

Arsenal should win, and move clear at the top of a group that – on paper – looks to be so simple that it’s not too fanciful to believe that Wenger picked it himself.

You can only beat what’s put in front of you though, and Arsenal do that better than most.

Another win here then, but perhaps with a few less tackles this time.

You will do well to Vouch and place bet for Arsenal to win. 1.38 home win at NaijaBet

Hercules v Villarreal Preview

Villarreal can go top of the Primera Liga if they can beat Hercules tonight. (kick-off 20.00 BST)

Villarreal can go a point clear of Real Madrid if they wrap up a sixth straight victory in Alicante, but midfielder Bruno Soriano has warned his side they must not take Hercules lightly.

The newly-promoted side have already claimed the scalps of Barcelona and Sevilla, and Soriano does not want him and his team-mates added to that list at the Estadio Jose Rico Perez.

He said: “It’s a very difficult game. Hercules, without running down the other sides who came up this year, are a very strong team.

“They’ve signed well and won at grounds and against teams that are very difficult. They’ve strengthened with important and experienced players like David Trezeguet and Royston Drenthe.

“We will be careful, although it’s clear that neither are we going to make it easy for them.”

Barcelona vs. Valencia-Preview

The two heavyweights of Spanish football take on each other in what is anticipated to be a very exciting encounter at the Nou Camp. Valencia and Barcelona have a long and historical rivalry in the Spanish football league and thus one can expect the up-coming match between the two clubs to be full of tension as Valencia currently occupy the top spot in the Spanish Primera Division rankings.

However, that is not all. Barcelona’s slow start to the season has meant that they are currently in the 4th place in the league table and a win over Valencia will propel them to the top of the table; given that results elsewhere go favourably as far as the Catalonians are concerned.

Valencia on the other hand will be looking to take things as they come. Their start to the season has been immaculate. The only dark patch on their “clean” start came in the UEFA Champions League when they lost to Manchester United at the Mestalla Stadium in a group stage matchup.

Other than that, Joaquin and co. have been on fire. No one actually expected Valencia to be the in-form team this season, despite losing the likes of David Villa and Silva in the summer transfer window to Barcelona and Manchester City respectively. The club has diverted all its recent income towards settling their debt concerns.

Valencia’s financial situation might not be as sound as other club’s in the Spanish league but their performances have certainly done the Los Che’s proud. Valencia’s match against Barcelona will be their 7th of the season in the Spanish Primera Division of league football. Valencia began their league season with an emphatic 3-1 win over Malaga, away from home.

From thereon in, it has been a steady rise to the top for the Spanish giants who have struggled in the recent season to match the might of Real Madrid and Barcelona. In their second league match of the season, Valencia hosted Racing Santander and easily defeated the Spanish minnows by 1-0.

In their third match, Valencia took on the newly promoted Hercules Alicante and bested the men who defeated Barcelona at Nou Camp by 2-1. After the match with Hercules, Valencia played host to Atletico Madrid which was a difficult match for the men from the city of Valencia.

In the end, the match concluded with the score line at 1-1. Since then, Valencia managed to win both their last two league games against Sporting Gijon and Athletic Bilbao. Conversely, Barcelona began their league campaign with an authoritative three goal win against Racing Santander but then lost their second league match to Hercules Alicante at the Nou Camp.

Despite the fact that they won their third match in the Spanish Primera Division by 2-1 against Atletico Madrid, Barcelona have not been in the best of form this season. They have impressed in some matches but in most of their league encounters, the Catalonian fans have been waiting to see the full force of their team.

Pep Guardiola’s men won their fourth and fifth league encounters against Sporting Gijon and Athletic Bilbao but then only managed to draw their last league match against Michael Laudrup’s Mallorca.  Of course, the man to watch out for Barcelona is no one other than, Lionel Messi. He has already netted five goals in the Spanish Primera Division this season and will be looking to fire his team to a spectacular win against Valencia.

Alternatively, Joaquin will be looking to do the same thing for his home side. The Spanish national winger has been given the team’s arm band after Silva and Villa left and thus he has stepped up to set an example as a leader of the team. With two goals already this season, Joaquin Sanchez has all the ability in the world to inflict another defeat on Barcelona in the 2010-2011 Spanish league season.

Best Five International GoaLs

You will agree with me that all these are fantastic goals indeed and i purposely put it here for you to know where you put your money when placing bet.
There are people that won very nicely at NaijaBet that i know of after watching this video and that is why i place it here.

I have been talking with some of them to allow me post their winning details on this site but they are still skeptical about it. I don’t know why people don’t want others to let them know when they make money.
Anyway as a bettor, there are good and bad days. This kind of video just increases you good days.
There are lot of matches this weekend and some fair odds at NaijaBet. You decision should start now.

England v Montenegro preview

Therell be loads of money backed on England tonight, but there is risk there with a shakey defence against Vucinic and an unbeaten Montenegro squad. Your money is much better placed where there is better odds that is a surer bet. (England to beat Montenegro is placed as 1.04 at NaijaBet).

Craig Levine has already laid the ground for his tactics and doesnt mind disapointing Scottish fans to get any kind of result. If he can go to Prague and play 6-4-0 he can do the same against the best team in the world currently in Spain. I actually think he will play 1 up front and bring Miller back in, but thats more due to pressure to play at least somekind of attack from the supporters and Press than anything else.

He will definately play 5 in midfield as without it the Spanish midfield will just about dominate this match. Make no mistake Scotland cant hold a candle to this Spanish squad. They will only need 1 goal to win this, its just going to be a matter of breaking down the 9 men Scottish defence, but theres enough talent on show to do that

Slovakia v Rep of Ireland

1. Slovakia were unbelievably poor as they lost 3-1 in Armenia on Friday night in what was a really bad performance. They are a much better team than that performance and I expect a big response tonight.

2. We have to remember the Slovaks made the last 16 in the World Cup and have beaten Russia in Moscow already this campaign, so I expect that loss will have given them a real kick.

3. The Irish also got beat on Friday as Russia outplayed them early on and survived a late fightback to win 3-2. I think the Irish limitations were exposed and getting a goal will be tough tonight.

4. Ireland have been hard to beat under Trappatoni but certainly werent that on Friday and with both sides desperate to bounce back, Im backing home support to be crucial.

England v Montenegro Tips

Time for England to show some quality. After beating Montenegro and Switzerland, another win would surely put them in the driving seat. Yes there are some injuries, but the squad is strong enough to cope. Rooney and Crouch to start up front – about time that Crouch gets his chance, let’s hope Adam Johnson is as lucky.

Montenegro also have a 100% record so they should not be underestimated. Vucinic is their man to watch already scoring 2 in 3 games. England’s defence will not have played together so could be breached. England strong favourites in the market and once again, home advantage to pay

Arsenal v West Brom: Preview

Midfielder Alex Song is available again after being suspended for the midweek Carling Cup win at Tottenham.

Captain Cesc Fabregas (hamstring) and centre-half Thomas Vermaelen (Achilles) will both miss out, but, along with left-back Kieran Gibbs (foot), could return against Chelsea next weekend.

Theo Walcott, Robin van Persie (both ankle), Nicklas Bendtner (groin) and Aaron Ramsey (leg) remain sidelined.

Fabregas will undoubtedly be a big loss, but manager Arsene Wenger is hoping he will return in time for next week’s crunch clash with Chelsea.

“I hope that he will be ready for the Chelsea match and that he will be fine,” said Wenger. “But at the moment we don’t know, it’s too early.”

West Brom defender Gabriel Tamas and winger Jerome Thomas are fitness doubts.

Tamas is struggling to overcome a calf problem and, if he is ruled out, is likely to be replaced by Pablo Ibanez.

Ibanez’s only previous league start was in the 6-0 reversal at Chelsea. Thomas is suffering from a groin injury and Cameroon international Somen Tchoyi is on standby.

Roberto Di Matteo has told Wenger that West Brom will adopt a physical but fair approach.

Albion head coach Di Matteo has sympathy for Wenger’s demands that referees adopt a strong stance in protecting players from reckless challenges.

But the former Chelsea star also insists that proper tackling is part of the English game.

Di Matteo said: “My opinion is that football is a contact sport. Part of it is physicality – but it needs to be fair.

“Referees have to be strong and make sure the game is conducted in a fair manner where no players get injured. They need to protect the players.

“Sometimes it is just an unfortunate challenge, sometimes it is challenges that can be avoided when a player gets injured.

“It has got to be fair. No one wants to see players getting injured or breaking legs.

“I don’t know what category we find ourselves in at the moment. We want to be competitive but we are not the bad boys of the Premier League at the moment.”

Aston Villa v Chelsea-Preview

Chelsea FC will be making the trip to Villa Park on Saturday for their eighth Premier League fixture against Aston Villa.

The blues are coming off of a colossal 2-0 victory over Arsenal last weekend and will be eager to extend their points tally. Although they’re eight points clear of Aston Villa, Manchester City are nipping at their heels with just four points separating the two sides.

Aston Villa are currently in eighth place with ten points, which means that these three points are extremely valuable to them and could boost morale significantly if obtained. Players to keep an eye on up front are John Carew and Emile Heskey.

This match is sure to be entertaining because although it is still fairly early in the season, this is when teams set the tone for what is to come. Success usually doesn’t happen overnight. It takes dedication, which Chelsea have been displaying ten-fold recently. Villa is capable of a win but will have to put it all on the table and be firing on all cylinders.
