  1. Re: Arsenal v Chelsea > Sunday April 26th Arsenal vs Chelsea – Draw @ 3.32 Marathonbet Arsenal enter the weekend as the hottest team in the Premier League since the turn of the calendar year. They have won 11 of their 13 EPL fixtures since January 1st and have been able to close the gap to the top of the table to 10 points before they welcome Chelsea to the Emirates. While their title hopes are realistically over, they will want to continue their excellent run of form that has seen them jump into pole position to finish 2nd place and claim another F.A. Cup title for the second year running. Chelsea held on last weekend to pick up a critical 3 points against Manchester United at home. While a victory will be their agenda headed in tonight, Mourinho will likely place greater importance on not losing rather than winning, as a draw would certainly end Arsenal’s slim title hopes.
  2. Re: Manchester City v Aston Villa > Saturday April 25th Manchester City vs Aston Villa – X2 @ 4.10 Marathonbet Manchester City got their top 4 bid back on track last weekend with a comfortable 2-0 win against West Ham. They have somewhat surprisingly capitulated in the second half of the season as they have now lost 6 of their last 9 competitive fixtures. That run of play saw both Arsenal and Manchester United leapfrog the Citizens for 2nd and 3rd place, though they can temporarily take back the 2nd spot with a win on Saturday. Aston Villa have shocked England en route to an F.A. Cup Final berth. Under former manager Paul Lambert, the Villains were sinking fast and struggling to find goals. But ever since the introduction of former Tottenham manager, Tim Sherwood, Villa have been on the up. They have now gone unbeaten in 6 of their last 8 competitive fixtures while managing to claim victory on 5 of those occasions. I will risk saying that Aston Villa will not lose tonight.
  3. Re: Bundesliga > April 24th - 26th Mainz vs Schalke – Draw @ 3.55 Marathonbet Mainz are looking up at the top 6 with hope in their eyes considering they are now only 8 points out from a Europa League berth next season. They played well in their last match on the road at Freiburg, winning 3-2. At home this season, Mainz have done well to lose only 4 matches out of 14 attempts. They tend to draw more often than not with 6 draws over these 14 home league contests, with an overall total of 13 draws in 29 league matches. Schalke have strung together some solid road performances recently. 3 straight road draws in league play against tough opponents in Augsburg and Wolfsburg to boot. A 0-0 away draw at Augsburg followed by a 1-1 road draw at Wolfsburg have the club buzzing with hope entering the year’s final stages. This should help their confidence entering a tough Mainz environment Friday as they try to escape the early season 7 road losses in their 1st 11 away league contests.
  4. Re: UEFA Europa League > Thursday April 23rd Zenit vs Sevilla – Win for Sevilla @ 3.20 Marathonbet Zenit claimed the Europa League trophy back in the 2007/2008 season and will be dreaming of repeating that historical run. That was their first-ever triumph in Europe and they have assembled a squad capable of repeating that feat this season. However, the defending champions of the cup were not to be denied at home, as the second half saw them invigorated, and Zenit eventually succumbed to the pressure and fell, 1:2. But that away goal could prove crucial to their advancement, as the hosts are very strong at home as evidenced by their 8-match unbeaten run with 7 wins over this stretch. Furthermore, they are unbeaten in their last 14 Europa League home matches in which 13 of those ended in victory. Sevilla travel to Russia as the underdogs despite being the reigning champions of the cup. While the travel distance is long and the home crowd is likely to be rowdy, i don’t see Sevilla being eliminated here.
  5. Re: Real Madrid v Atlético de Madrid > Wednesday April 22nd Real Madrid – Atletico Madrid – Win for Real Madrid at 1.86 @ Marathonbet Real Madrid will have been pleased with their performance in the 1st leg at the Vicente Calderon (0-0), as now any win at home sees them through to the semifinals. They have picked up their play recently and are unbeaten in their last 5 competitive fixtures, with 4 of those ending in victory for Los Blancos. Their weekend match ended in a comfortable 3-1 win over Malaga, as Cristiano Ronaldo enjoyed another fine performance for his club with a hand in all 3 goals (1 goal and 2 assists). Tonight they will miss Modric, Bale, Benzema and Marcelo, four very important players. Atletico Madrid won’t be ecstatic with their 0-0 draw in the 1st leg, but they will be pleased by refusing to allow an away goal. Now any score-draw gets them through to the next round, and considering the recent injury concerns for the hosts, Atletico will be confident of advancing here. They have gone unconquered against their rivals in all 7 competitive showdowns since last season’s Champions League Final defeat, and even that loss was forced into extra time.
  6. Re: FC Bayern München v FC Porto > Tuesday April 21st Bayern – Porto – To Win To Nil – Bayern Munich at 2.28 @ Marathonbet Bayern Munich disappointed in the first leg, where they ended up losing 3:1 making it extremely hard to advance in the next round. After only a couple of minutes Xabi Alonso and Dante had made crucial mistakes leading to two goals for Porto. There will be no room for that kind of mistakes in the second leg, where the Bayern players are forced forward, as they need to score at least two goals. It is obvious that Pep Guardiola is missing some crucial players, but he can still line up with a world class squad. It is also expected that Franck Ribery and Bastian Schweinsteiger will be in the squad. FC Porto surprised everyone in the first leg, as they were better than Bayern at some stages of the game. The Porto players managed to pressure the Germans in the build up play, and that was really important in terms of getting the win. Jackson Martinez was also an important player. He returned from injury, but still he caused the Bayern defenders quite some trouble with his strength. But there is no doubt that it will be a completely different game in the Allianz Arena, where Bayern will have all the support they need.
  7. Re: Liga de Fútbol Profesional > April 17th - 20th Elche – Sociedad – Win for Elche at 2.80 @ Marathonbet This is a game for the 32th day of Primera Division between Elche and Sociedad. Elche stands three points above the relegation zone and needs the win, in order to maximize their chances for survival. Sociedad, on the other hand, is at the middle of the table and has remained without a target. The home team counts only one win at the last five league games (1-1-3), meanwhile the visitors count only one loss at the last six league games (3-2-1). Nevertheless, Sociedad has won only one of its last 16 away league matches. I see a home win.
  8. Re: Newcastle United v Tottenham Hotspur > Sunday April 19th Newcastle vs Tottenham – Win for Tottenham @ 2.34 Marathonbet Newcastle United are sitting now 13th in the table. Their recent form is yet disastrous. If this continues, the Magpies may even be fighting for their survival. The home victory over Aston Villa on the 28th of February was their last till now. Then, the Magpies lost to Manchester United, Everton, Arsenal, Sunderland and on the last matchday against Liverpool. What’s even worse – in all these five games the Newcastle players managed to score only a single goal, while they conceded 9. Tottenham Hotspur are a little bit short of breath. Still a few weeks ago the Spurs fight shoulder to shoulder with Arsenal and Manchester United for the top four. Now, the London side from White Hart Lane lose 12 points to the Gunners and 11 to the Red Devils. The top four and Champions League are slowly moving away. Tottenham may not be sure of European competition at all.
  9. Re: Liga de Fútbol Profesional > April 17th - 20th Barcelona vs Valencia – Barcelona To Win + Total Over 3.5 @ 2.14 Marathonbet Barcelona stumbled in their title pursuit last weekend when they drew on the road with Sevilla, 2-2. Despite holding a 2:0 lead through the first half hour of action, the Catalans fell asleep and allowed Sevilla back in the match with 2 unanswered goals on either side of halftime. The draw allowed for Real Madrid to close the gap at the top to just 2 points, and the Catalans will be feeling the pressure mount with just 7 matches remaining. However, Barcelona will be buoyed by their massive Champions League victory last time out, as the Catalans hit the road to Paris and stole a 3-1 lead from the first leg. The hosts are now unbeaten in their last 11 competitive fixtures and have claimed victory on 10 of those occasions. Furthermore, they have now won 15 of their last 16 competitive matches at the Camp Nou, outscoring their opponents 59 to 11.
  10. Re: Liga de Fútbol Profesional > April 17th - 20th Levante vs Espanyol – Win for Levante @ 2.93 Marathonbet Levante has a high need for the three points, as they are into the relegation zone, having the same points with La Coruna and Almeria. The hosts count four losses at their last five league games, meanwhile Espanyol comes from two straight wins and is undefeated at the last five games (2-3-0). History of this duel is in favor of Levante, as they won all the last four home games against Espanyol. I think that they can win also tonight.
  11. Re: FC Porto v FC Bayern München > Wednesday April 15th Porto – Bayern – Win for Bayern at 1.90 @ Marathonbet FC Porto will look to change their luck against German opponents on Wednesday. 8 losses in their last 10 meetings with Germany clubs through the years in European play. They currently hold 2nd place in the Portuguese League, losing only 2 of 22 Home matches overall this season. This dominate home field form will surely help them against the legendary power of Germany’s top contender, Bayern Munich. Bayern Munich are the class of German football, currently dominating the German Bundesliga with a comfortable 10 point lead on 2nd place. This enables them to rest up for big European matches like this one here. In UCL play this season, Munich lost 1 road match out of 4 attempts. With 9 wins in their last 10 games played overall, it is hard to see the German power falling in this match despite Porto’s impressive home fortress.
  12. Re: Juventus v AS Monaco > Tuesday April 14th Juventus – Monaco – Juventus To Win + Total Under 2.5 at 2.83 @ Marathonbet Juventus FC are one of the best clubs worldwide and it shows in their dominance of the Italian Serie A. Having only lost 2 home matches all season, Juve certainly know how to win, and they have been doing so for a few years now. The absence of Paul Pogba could press Juventus to play more defensive. But, with 3 straight home victories, expect them to still manage a shutout here considering they have accumulated a fine 11 clean sheets over 22 Home games in all competitions. Monaco are coming off an absolute stunning upset of English favorite Arsenal to advance to this round of UCL play. They just barely held on in the end via aggregate as their fortitude proved just deadly enough to succeed. The key to surviving was the stunning 1st leg away win at Arsenal that saw them down their hosts 3-1. Despite their 1st leg road explosion on Arsenal, expect a defensive approach from the visitors tonight.
  13. Re: Liverpool v Newcastle United > Monday April 13th Liverpool vs Newcastle – Over 2.5 @ 1.76 Marathonbet Liverpool know they must take all 3 points on Monday if they hope to maintain their top 4 ambitions. After going unbeaten in their first 10 league fixtures since the turn of the calendar year, the Reds have lost back-to-back games to Manchester United and Arsenal, and they are certainly on the outside looking in at 7 points adrift the top 4. However, confidence will be taken from that fact that they have won 4 of their last 5 Premier League home games, and with revenge serving as a welcome motivator this weekend after the hosts dropped the reverse fixture in Newcastle (0-1), the Reds should produce a performance worthy of all 3 points here. Newcastle have completely gone missing in recent weeks as complacency has set in, and manager John Carver needs to get his side off of 35 points and ensure their safety for next season. While it is admittedly a long shot for them to even face the possibility of relegation, it is this thinking that has likely seen the Magpies lethargically go through the motions and lose their last 4 Premier League fixtures and 5 of their last 6.
  14. Re: Liga de Fútbol Profesional > April 11th - 13th Real Madrid vs Eibar – Over 3,5 @ 1.77 Marathonbet Real Madrid has a chance to put some pressure on Barcelona, as a win would put them just a single point behind the league leaders before the Catalans face a difficult trip to Sevilla. The hosts will take confidence from the fact that they have won 11 of their last 12 Primera Division matches at the Santiago Bernabeu, outscoring their opponents by an astonishing amount, 44 scored to just 7 conceded. Eibar have admittedly enjoyed a successful season for it being their first ever in La Liga, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see them as one of the teams left standing come season’s end. However, their form has been horrendous of late and they really should be safer than they currently are. They have earned just 4 total points from their last 11 La Liga matches, losing on 9 of those occasions
  15. Re: Ligue 1 Orange > April 7th - 12th Caen vs Monaco – Win for Monaco @ 2.22 Marathonbet Caen is looking to continue with a home win here this round as they look to put some real daylight between themselves and the bottom three. Caen’s position is relatively safe as they are six points above the relegation zone in 12th place in the league table, where they are currently on 19th place in the home standings with five wins, three draws and seven defeats. Monaco has a busy period coming up as they face four games within eleven days. They extended their unbeaten run in Ligue 1 to seven games when they drew goalless with Montpellier at home. In fact, Monaco have lost just once in their last sixteen games in the French top flight overall. They are currently on first place in the away standings with 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 defeats.
