    Why would someone rest players for West Ham? It's true that they lost "only" 2-1 against City, but it's hard to score when someone has 10 players in the box. :) 

    Season is long and 6 clubs are competing for 4 CL-spots (actually more like 5 clubs for 3 spots). That's why I thought that they maybe might rest some players for a London derby away from home. ;)

    I don't know why but I'm calling it now. Manchester City to score at least 3 against Feyenoord at home!

    I think so too. There is just so much difference in quality. 

    I think Dortmund might get the win. Tottenham haven't really been succesful against the top sides away from home. They lost to Arsenal and Manchester United. They did get a draw in Bernabeu against Real but Lloris saved the point for them. Also, their best centre back Alderweireld is out. Tottenham's style should suit Dortmund better than the brick wall defending of APOEL. 

  3. If this game was played at White Hart Lane I would love to take Tottenham at that price. But everybody knows how much Tottenham dislike Wembley, particularly the large pitch there. They've got a very limited home advantage. Their record at Wembley is awful. So I rather take the BTS.

    Real should absolutely hammer APOEL. Especially with a super-ambitious Ronaldo back in the line-up with his controversial league ban and after Barcelona's and Messi's recent performances which are all over the Spanish sports media. 

    Liverpool have looked very good so far at Anfield and Sevilla already had a lot of trouble with Basaksehir. And that 5-0 loss to Man City was probably a good wake up call right before the CL start. 

    Shakhtar and Napoli both seem to be in tremendous form. But Napoli are the better team and Ukrainian league is basically a two club league with no competition. Shakhtar also lost 0-1 at home against rivals Dynamo Kiev. Napoli have shown recently that they not only can score goals but (finally) also can keep clean sheets. I like Napoli to win here.

    Edit: Milik is such a useless twat. Meanwhile Mertens sits on the bench. 

    I take that back. Napoli are still shit at defending. 



  4. Pep is overrated. Carried by Messi, Xavi, Iniesta all these years. And even a monkey would win the German league with that Bayern squad. He will never win the EPL. Too much competition. But I'm sure he goes crying to the Arabs "I can't work with these players. I need Hazard, Lukaku, Kane, Kante, Coutinho, Pogba,..." 

  5. I think it's best to avoid the teams who are in pre-season training and rather wait for the return legs. Had Linfield -1.5 yesterday...


    I kinda fancy Cork City to win. They are completely dominating Irish league and the Estonian league for sure isn't better than the Irish one. However teams from the British Isles are notoriously bad away from home and I have no idea how Cork will do on the international stage. 

  6. Nadal hasn't really been tested (Thiem could have and should have but performed like a nervous kid) but Wawrinka also played a grueling 5-setter against Murray. That has to take its toll on him. Not early on in the game but definitely in a potential 4th or 5th set. I can't see Stan winning more than one set against this Nadal on this court. It's either Nadal 3-0 or 3-1 imo.

  7. Ostapenko is definitely worth a shot. With Thiem's disappointing performance vs Nadal in mind, the big question is can she keep her nerves together in a big Grand Slam final and play her game. Halep is no new all time great but she is much better than Bacsinszky who (in my opinion) is a typical women's tennis pusher without a clue.

  8. 3.75 for Ostapenko seems like a good enough price. Of course it will obviously be more difficult playing against someone who is capable of putting pressure on her and doesn't hit the ball like a 12-year old girl (*cough* Bacsinszky *cough*). But Ostapenko has proven her mental strength on the biggest court in Paris and it's also Halep's game to lose.
