    Genoa vs Crotone
    2018, Arpil 14, 18:00 hrs (CET Time)
    Serie A
    Genoa at the middle of the table, away from the European places, and with a considerable advantage of the relegation places, being 8 points above. The team has had a poor performance at home, with only four victories from 15 games, with 8 defeats the team has suffered at home, not only of the usual leading teams, but also some of the half table have taken points, however has two games at home without losing, won the last 2-1 to Caglari, the remaining games at home, the most affordable seems to be this and the one against Hellas Verona, the other two are against rivals that are above the they in the general table, which gives relevance to this game and continue to add points to have peace of mind for the final part of the league.
    With a run of three games without defeat, the team wants to keep adding and an interesting match is presented for it.
    Crotone is in relegation places, due to the difference of goals with respect to the SPAL, and has three teams, only three points away, so the dispute to avoid relegation becomes interesting, discounting Benevento that although mathematically it has possibilities to remain in Serie A, the disadvantage of the points that  Benevento has is seen as an insurmountable distance. Thanks to his performance at home the team has not fallen below, however it is due to his visitor performance where he has the problem, since he has lost 11 of the 15 matches played, being the second worse away team, only exceeded precisely by the Benevento.
    Notable for Crotone, despite the poor results, has played disputed games, such as the draw at home of the Internazionale last February, or victory at home of Hellas Verona in January, but in March the only game played in foreign playground It was a defeat. However it is important to consider that it will be a walk in the park against Crotone.
    In the matches between them, three have been played in Serie A and in fact two has been Genoa victories at Crotone's home and a 2-2 draw at the end of last season at Stadio Comunale Luidi Ferraris of Genoa, so the team will seek to continue their good run, and made their home a difficult place for Crotone.

    Genoa vs Crotone
    A number of massive games are taking place in Serie A this weekend. AC Milan versus Napoli, Juventus versus Sampdoria, and Lazio versus Roma. However, I'm turning the focus away from the limelight and on a game where there is far more value in the shape of Genoa versus Crotone.
    That's right, we are visiting Stadio Luigi Ferraris for this 5pm kick-off on Saturday afternoon between a 12th placed side that are already planning for next season and the team in 18th place who are staring the threat of relegation in the face. Genoa's supporters might well want another win or two to seal the survival deal. Crotone's fans are simply praying they can do enough over the remaining 7 matches to stay up.
    Genoa's form has picked up lately. It is now three league games unbeaten for Davide Ballardini's side. However, before that it was three defeats on the bounce without scoring. So it's a fragile spell of recent form. Crotone are in deep trouble with three defeats on the trot in the league and only 1 win in their last 9 league games.
    The home and away here is an interesting one. Genoa have actually won more points on the road. They have the 4th from worst home record in Serie A with just 4 wins and 3 draws from their 15 home matches this season. Luckily, Crotone have an even worse away record. It's just 2 wins and 2 draws from their 15 away matches for Walter Zenga's side.
    I have to back the Genoa win here. The home side have far less pressure on them than Crotone and they have the superior players. There is always the uncertainty of how bravely relegation battlers will play but I just think Crotone don't have enough to survive. I don't rate Zenga as a manager either. Yes, he's had success but it's been with strong teams in weak leagues. He doesn't know how to dig a team like Crotone out of trouble against the odds.

    Liverpool vs Manchester City
    The Champions League Quarter-Final matches continue tonight after last night produced some exhilarating football. This all-English tie is the pick of the games and it's certainly one that I think is worth previewing because it might produce a bit of an upset based on previous encounters.
    It's been a mixed bag for these teams in their two previous meetings this season. In their first match-up back on 9th September, City won 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium. However, when the two teams faced each other at Anfield on 14th January of this year it was the Reds who prevailed with a stunning 4-3 win. That was the only league defeat City have suffered this season and just the fourth loss they have suffered in all competitions.
    One thing I am expecting tonight is goals. The match is being hyped up as Jurgen Klopp versus Pep Guardiola and Mo Salah versus Kevin De Bruyne. There is so much more to this game. Sergio Aguero being absent is a big blow for City but he is simply replaced by Gabriel Jesus. Their strength in depth is unbelievable.
    There is no denying that this City side is one of the potentially most talented European sides of all time. They still have a lot to prove. I'm still not sure they have enough nous to win the Champions League this season. I'm not even convinced they can win tonight. Liverpool, Wigan, Shakhtar Donetsk, and Basel have all proved that City can be intimidated on the road.
    I fully expect this game to match the excitement levels expected. Both sides will feel they can win this game. I'm not brave enough to call an outright winner but I seriously think Liverpool cannot be ruled out. Not many things match the atmosphere under the floodlights at Anfield on a European night. The scene is set for Liverpool to actually take something from this game.

    @StevieDay1983, Interesting analysis and altought I like the BTTS in that match as Bayern Munich packs a lot of potential for scoring, I have my doubts about the Sevilla power, is true they just come from a 2-2 draw against Barcelona, which speaks they can score, but that high-octane match should have worn the team at some level, therefore against a rested defense is yet to see how they fare. 
    Sevilla at this level of Champions League has yet its history to write and considering how they did on Europa League recently, I believe that with their performance against Manchester United provide them with a good basis, and at home would be crucial not to allowed a goal considering away goal advantage, therefore I agree with your AH pick. Good luck!

    Juventus v Real Madrid; 20:45
    The first match of one of most interesting duels in this part of the competition will be played at Allianz Stadium in Torino and I think that Juventus cannot afford to lose at home. Goin on Santiago Bernabeu with negative would minimize their chances. With Pjanić and Benatia suspended, will probably see Chiellini and Barzagli as a center back duo, while De Sciglio and Alex Sandro should cover fullback positions. With Khedira and Matuidi in center of midfield, they will have big defensive support and I see Real Madrid hardly finding spaces between the lines today. With offered odds, I see value on Juventus +0,25 with odds around 1,90. I think that bookies are underestimating the home pitch advantage here. I agree that match can easily go both ways, but once again, I cannot see Italians losing this match and +0,25 is bringing us half profit in case of the draw. Zidane rested some players over the weekend. It will be interesting to see if Bale "bought" his place in starting eleven with the good performance against Las Palmas or not. We will for sure see Cristiano Ronaldo back, but the questions are positions of Benzema and the 3rd forward or attacking midfielder. Benzema, Bale, Isco, Asensio, Vazquez,... three of those five will stay on the bench. In any case, Real will have a strong lineup, but even though they are in series of wins, I'm still not convinced in their performances. In my opinion, with a bit of luck, the first match in Paris could turn up totally differently. Will Real have this "sportive luck" once again, or it will go on another side this time?

    Leicester City vs Chelsea
    2018, March 18, 17:30 hrs (CET Time)
    FA Cup - Quarterfinals
    Leicester City seeks to reach the semifinals with the aim of winning a title this season, as well as Chelsea, as the Premier League is very complicated, as Manchester City must go through an epic debacle to give options to other teams.

    The Leicester arrives better in the recent form, as it has four games without losing, with two wins in that period, just the victory against Sheffield United to reach this instance and visit against the WBA. He has 8 home games without losing, with four draws and four wins, highlighting the draw 2-2 against Manchester United last December, however is in 8th position in the Premier League, 16 points behind the 5th which is the Chelsea.

    For its part Chelsea comes with low morale but looking for revenge after their elimination in the Champions League, losing 3-0 away to Barcelona, the team has had a bad performance in what could be considered his queen stage, having three defeats in the last four games, against rivals like Manchester City, Manchester United and the one against Barcelona, for a team that is looking to compete at that level are complicated results to digest, although on the positive side it could be seen that they only lost for a goal against the two teams of Manchester, but the category defeat at the hands of Barcelona leaves it without arguments.

    In addition to the above has five games with consecutive defeats of visitor, then he had a run of five games without loss of visit.

    I think it will be an even match, since it's a match at 90 minutes, where the league's statistics become irrelevant, and considering the clashes between them, where in the last ten games, have been 1 victory for Leicester City, two ties and seven wins for Chelsea. The last three games at King Power Stadium, Chelsea have taken victory in all of them. So I think it will recover from the game against Barcelona and will give a better performance, the Leicester will pay for the broken plates, but it will not make it easy, so the Asian handicap I see it as the best option.

    Aston Villa vs Wolves
    The evening kick-off tonight is a crunch clash between two local rivals in Aston Villa and Wolves. This is another massive test for the league leaders. Steve Bruce's side sit in 3rd place in the Championship table just 4 points outside the automatic promotion places. Nuno Santo's team remain top of the field despite dropping points in three of their last four matches and are now only 6 points ahead of second placed Cardiff.
    This will be a heck of a challenge for Wolves. Villa have only lost once at home all season. However, Wolves are the holders of the best away record in the Championship having taken 37 points on the road this season. They have also only conceded 13 goals in 18 away matches in the league.
    One key statistic here is the fact that Villa are currently enjoying a superb run of form. 9 wins, 1 draw, and 1 defeat from their last 11 league games has seen them shoot up the Championship table. It has transformed their prospects from being play-off hopefuls to automatic promotion contenders.
    Personally, I think Wolves are still firm favourites to win the title. Their win in midweek at Leeds was crucial even if it was gifted to them by the awful set piece defending by the home team. It was 3 points they needed though and if the three games prior were their bad run then they've done very well. I still think Villa shade this one as favourites but I'm torn between a draw and home win. The value isn't great but I might have to play it safe. I certainly think both teams will score. I'm very excited for this one. If both teams go for the win then it could be a thrilling match-up.

    English Premier League
    Westbrom begins to see relegation closer, with 8 points behind secure positions, it is complicated that it can overcome them before the league finishes, but while mathematically it is possible, it should not be discarded, additionally that once certified the descent is it could give them more freedom and ease, but for now the team has six games without winning, although only two of them at home, where they have fallen by only 1 goal difference to Southampton or Huddersfield Town, no one would believe that they draw here against Arsenal or Everton last December.

    The recent form does not help them, returning home would help, but no good memories against Leicester, since of the last three games played against Leicester in The Hawthrons, the has taken three defeats, curiously the team is better playing at King Power Stadium, where in the last six has not lost.

    Leicester City is in the 8th position, 16 points far from the European positions, and 10 points above relegation, not the best season for a team that had won the title a few years ago, but acceptable for the high competitiveness of the league.

    The team has been falling in the general table, given that although this year has not lost at home, at away is the antithesis and have not won, with four defeats in the last five games, facing several of the powerful teams of the league as Liverpool, Manchester City or Chelsea, where they were able to snatch a point in Stamford Bridge. But they have yet to win at away, and this is a good opportunity, but we cover ourselves in case of a draw.

    English Premier League
    Both teams have had good moments this season, but they have not been able to capitalize on them as they would have liked and they are barely above the relegation places. With only 9 games remaining, each game begins to take on a monumental importance.

    Both teams are equal, not only by the position in the general table, but also in the recent form, a home victory for both, with three draws and one loss, the two lost to Liverpool.

    For this match, we took into account the previous matches and found that of the last five matches, in four of them both teams have scored goals and considering that in their recent form they have both scored in almost every game, only Southampton could not score in two encounters of the last five, it can be considered that the need will make them seek to take control of the match soon.

     In the last three meetings in St. James Park between them, Southampton has not lost, which gives a small boost to this game, but we can consider that only in a match could win by 1 goal difference. They are intense matches and fought, and we hope that this continues with that line.

    Preston North End broke a four-game losing streak without victory, although three draws in that streak, with the away win against Bolton Wanderes, then at home defeat the Bristol and start a positive streak, with the intention of approaching the playoff positions of promotion. At home the team has left a lot to be desired, because although they have only lost 4 matches they have tied and won the same number, which is 7.
    Fulham has a run of 14 games without losses, with 3 draws and 11 wins, which has allowed him to climb positions to be in 4th position with which he would play the playoff for the promotion to Premier League, the team would prefer to finish first or second to ascend directly, at the moment it takes a very positive tendency that considering that there are still 30 points in dispute, everything can happen.
    On tour the team has won three victories in the last five meetings with two draws, so the trend favors him. Additionally, it is the 4th team that wins the most matches as a visitor, so it is good for it.
    It could be considered as a somewhat even match, but taking into account the last two games played at Deppdale Stadium between them, Fulham has managed to get two wins, both 1-2, during the last two seasons, so I consider that gives him the advantage for this game, coupled with his recent good performance.

    Liga MX
    Toluca
    The team has make a good season so far, remains unbeaten at home, where they have collected two victories and two draws and has showed solid defending only allowing 3 goals in five matches played at home. The team has three consecutive matches winning, only in the match against Mineros Zacatecas in Copa MX the team allowed goals, still the offensive was powerful enough to score more than Mineros and secure qualification for next round.
    The team has encounter important opposition at home as Monterrey and Santos Laguna has fallen here in their last two matches played in Liga MX. Also Santos Laguna lost here in Copa MX.
    With the pair of Sambueza and Fernando Uribe the team has the offensive power required.
    Pachuca
    The team has improved lately in Liga MX with four consecutive matches without losing,  two home victories, and away victory against Veracruz and a high voltage against Pachuca.  In the midweek the team lost their last match of Copa MX against Atletico San Luis by 2-1, and despite being tied in points was able to proceed thanks to away goals to next stage of Copa MX.
    Keisuke Honda has adapt well to the team, and has also scored goal for the team and remains one of their main key players.
    For Pachuca this match will be a very good test for their capabilities for this season. At away the team has only the victory against Veracruz, and had lost against Tigres UANL by 3-2 at the end of January. With draw against America and Chivas.
    Prediction
    The previous encounter have been tight matches, and the urgency of Pachuca to win at away will be key for the development of the match, expect constant offensive arrivals.
    Toluca should impose conditions, still it will not be an easy thing to do Pachuca has obtained good results here by minimum margin, the discipline will be key, if Toluca can avoid red cards, then they will have control and enjoy the best chances. Considering the handicap take, Toluca is the best option by being at home where they are displaying a great gameplay.

    Dutch Eredivisie
    Sparta Rotterdam
    In the last place of the general table, today would descend directly, although only two points away from the posts of the relegation playoff, the team has not won as a visitor, but above all a lousy local performance is what has it in the background And if you do not make changes and get better results, the situation could be complicated greatly.

    After this match the team comes complicated games, but among them one against his direct rival the Roda JC, that to win, would leave the Roda in last place and Sparta would be in the playoffs of the descent. But the situation is complicated. Has a four-game winless streak, highlighting a draw against visiting Twente, but outside of it highlights that if he has lost has been only for a single goal, painful that, but indicates that only a slight improvement would bring better results.

    ADO Den Haag
    The team remains in the 8th position, making a good season, with a good performance at home complemented by a regular visitor performance. But he has achieved certain visitor victories, which have him close to European positions.

    The team has five games without defeat, with three away draws, the draw against second place AJAX stands out, as well as the victory against Vitesse. The team has a good recent form that should have a better consideration for this game.

    Prediction
    The last three matches between them, regardless of the field in which they played have been victories by the minimum, 1-0 of the ADO Den Haag, so I think that together with a better recent form of ADO Den Haag against match with Sparta's bad, they give ADO Den Haag the advantage.
