  1. West Ham - Manchester United (Premier League) 10.05.2016 Europa League and Champions League games next season is at stake when West Ham welcomes Manchester United to Boleyn Ground, kick off at 20.45 (CET). It's going to be nerves, drama and an exciting match scenario. The home side and manager Slaven Bilic has been struggling lately, and hasn't manage to take all three points in tight matches. A new bottom performance was made last weekend when they embarrassing lost 1-4 against 11th placed Swansea. West Ham produced a lot of chances, but was ineffective in front of goal. They're trying to pass Southampton who sits on the important 6th place in the league, only one point ahead of Bilic's men. This important 6th place gives Europa League games next season. West Ham's got a 3-5-2 flow on their last 10 matches, and has been involved in high scoring games lately. Bilic's got first goalkeeper Adrian and defender Carl Jenkinson out injured ahead of this match, it's expected that perhaps Premier League's best player in the air Andy Carroll is starting up to for The Hammers. It's going to be a lot of duels in the air, and the Carroll vs Smalling match will be exciting and important. Expected lineup West Ham: Randolph Tomkins – Reid – Ogbonna – Cresswell Kouyate – Noble Moses – Lanzini – Payet Carroll The visitors manager Louis van Gaal has been ridiculed through the season, but can really save Manchester United's season with a Champions League place next year and a FA Cup trophy. Local rivals Manchester City draw 2-2 against Arsenal on Sunday, and has given the reds in Manchester a match ball in the second last match of the league. A Manchester United win today will send them past City, and put them on the important 4th spot that gives Champions League games next season. Won 0-1 against Norwich in the weekend, in a poor match, but took at the same time three important points. Are in great form with 7-2-1 on their last 10 matches. They've got a lot of injuries including both first choices at full back. Top scorer Anthony Martial is extremely doubtful ahead of the clash in London. Here is the compleat unavailable list: Luke Shaw (defender) Matteo Darmian (defender) Bastian Schweinsteiger (midfield) Marouane Fellaini (midfield) suspended Will Keane (striker) Expected lineup Manchester United: De Gea Valencia – Smalling – Blind – Rojo Carrick – Herrera Lingard – Rooney – Depay Rashford It's a hard task to anticipate how the teams will start this match, when it comes to tactics and tempo. But we believe the Red Devils from Manchester's got a great chance of getting something from this match. The form of the teams are quite opposite, and Manchester United's got a good grip on West Ham with a 13-5-1 flow on the last 19 matches. But 3 of the last 4 meetings have ended up in a draw, we bet on a Manchester United win on the betting object «draw no bet», which gives us back our stake if the match ends up with a draw. West Ham – Manchester United 2 (draw no bet)
  2. Mjølner - Tromsø (Norwegian Cup) 27.04.2016 Today we take a look at the 2.round of the Norwegian Cup, where Tromsø travel to the city of Narvik to face Mjølner. The visitors may be up for a big test in today's match. The home side was relegated from the Norwegian 2.division last year, while Tromsø have struggled against smaller teams in the Cup competition in a few years now. The red and white's from Narvik ended up on a 13th place in 2.division department 1 last season, this resulted in relegation to 3.division with Lyn and Holmen. The home stat at Narvik Stadium last year shows 4-3-6, it's pretty good conceding their fight for relegation. Beat Harstad 0-1 in the 1.round of the Cup, while losing 1-0 in their first league match against Sortland in 3.division department 11. Stian Johnsen is the new head coach for Mjølner this season, he told that it takes time to build a good squad and a strong starting eleven for his Mjølner side. Mjølner's got some quality and some exciting youngsters in their squad. Both Preben Schmiel, Anders Framvik Nilsen and Espen Nilsen have got great 2.division experience. Under 16 Norway international Håkon Evjen is the most exciting youngster in this Mjølner squad, a player who could look bright in the future. The visitors struggles on the highest level in Norway. After a few good matches after the kick off in Tippeligaen, the team have conceded a lot of goals lately. The team doesn't look comfortable in the defense, and also have problems scoring goals. Tromsø now got three defeats in a row: 4-0 against Vålerenga, 1-2 against Rosenborg and last weekend a poor 6-0 defeat against Aalesund. Had some problems in the Cup competition last 1-2 years. In 2014 they're knocked out in the 3.round, and last year their cup adventure ended in the 2.round, when 3.division side FK Senja got too strong. Tromsø head coach Bård Flovik has chosen to rest some players ahead of today's match, Hans Norbye (defender), Kent-Are Antonsen (defender), Morten Gamst Pedersen (midfield), Aron Sigurdarson (winger) and Runar Espejord (striker) are not included in the match squad. The two brothers Henrik (16 years old) and Christer Johnsgård (29 years old) are included in their first ever Tromsø squad, and could get their debut today. These two teams meet back in 2014 in the 1.round of the Cup. The match ended in a scoreless draw, and Tromsø won after a penalty shootout. We believe Mjølner are eager to punish their opponents today, and their home fans will help them through the game. Perhaps we'll see an unsure and unmotivated Tromsø side today in Narvik. We bet on the object «double chance» and place our bet at a home win and a draw. Mjølner – Tromsø 1X (Double Chance)
  3. Semifinal in Champions League from Etihad Stadium in Manchester. The home side City takes on the Spanish side Real Madrid. Both teams are also fighting for their lives in their home leagues, but this match is extremely important for both sides. The sky blues from Manchester sits on a 3rd place in the English Premier League with the same amount of points as Arsenal (64 points), behind them local rivals Manchester United are pushing with 59 points. It's important for Pellegrino's men to not slip in the battle for Champions League next year. On Saturday Stoke were beaten 4-0 at Etihad, while Gael Clichy and Kevin de Bruyne was rested at the bench from start. Vincent Kompany are expected back in the starting lineup, and will replace Mangala. The Manchester City skipper are one of the most important players for Pellegrino, if not the most important of them all. This is the first ever Man City semifinal in Champions League, this year could be the turning point for City when it comes to success in the Europa Cup. Yaya Toure (midfield) and Samir Nasri (midfield) are both injured and the only unavailable players for the home side. Expected lineup Manchester City: Hart Clichy – Kompany – Otamendi – Sagna Fernando – Fernandinho Navas – de Bruyne – Silva Aguero Today's visitors from Madrid are fighting for the league champions in la Liga, at the moment they're on a 3rd place with 81 points, in front of them both Barcelona and local rivals Atletico Madrid have 82 points. It's going to be an amazing race in the Spanish la Liga, with only three matches again to be played. Real Madrid won 2-3 away to Rayo Vallecano last weekend, after going behind 2-0. In this match players like James Rodriguez (midfield), Sergio Ramos (defender) and Luka Modric (midfield) was rested. Daniel Carvajal (defender) and Cristiano Ronaldo (striker) didn't play against Rayo because of minor injuries, but are both expected in the starting lineup for tonight. Striker Karim Benzema has picked up a minor injury, and will start on the bench for Real tonight. This will be an intense match, with a lot of duels in the midfield were two compact teams are trying to get the advantage. Expected lineup Real Madrid: Navas Carvajal – Pepe – Ramos – Marcelo Modric – Casemiro – Kroos Bale – Lucas Vazquez – Cristiano Ronaldo This match is basically great for a card-bet, both sides have central defenders who picks up a lot of cards. On the defensive midfield for Manchester City we'll find Fernando and Fernandinho who will make a lot of tackles and free kick's. Strong and hard-working Real Madrid defensive midfielder Casemiro are up against quick and brilliant de Bruyne and Silva, and will also perhaps see a card today. When we look at todays referee Turkish Cüneyt Cakir, we know there's going to be a lot of cards seen today. The referees last 15 games shows an average of 4,26 yellow cards pr match, the average of cards pr game are even higher in Champions League matches for the Turkish ref. The highlights for Cakir in last years Champions League when it comes to cards are: Sporting – CSKA Moscow 7 yellow Malmö – Real Madrid 6 yellow, 1 red Chelsea – Porto 6 yellow We bet on over 4,5 cards in today's semifinal from Manchester, and get a great odds value. Good luck!
  4. The Norwegian Tippeliga is back, and today the opening match is played at Color Line Stadion, Aalesund takes on Stabæk. The home side has lost a lot of important first team players from last year, while the visitors has a new head coach after last years success with Bob Bradley. In the opening match everything can happen. Aalesund finished last season on a 10th place in the league, quite strong at home with 7-3-5. Have played 8 friendlies ahead of this season, the stats from these games shows 3-2-3. Aalesund's got a squad that counts 7 junior-players, and they've sold Dyrestam, Grytebust, Latifu, Matland, Bjørdal and James who all was regular starters. Among their signings goalkeeper Cramer and striker Boli must be the best ones. We think this Aalesund team isn't quite as good as last year. Here are all the transfers ahead of the season for the home team: In: Lars Cramer (goalkeeper) Kalmar Mikael Kirkeskov (defender) Odense Adam Örn Arnarson (defender) Nordsjælland Marlinho (midfield/striker) Tigres dos Brasil Edwin Gyasi (midfield) Roda Franck Boli (striker) Liaoning Whoxin Out: Sten Grytebust (goalkeeper) Odense Mikael Dyrestam (defender) NEC Akeem Latifu (defender) Stal Dnipro Jo Nymo Matland (defender) Royal Antwerpen Magne Hoseth (midfield) Notodden Henrik Bjørdal (midfield) Brighton Leke James (striker) Beijing Enterprises Group Aalesund has sold almost their entire defensive back line from last year, only centre back Oddbjørn Lie har still in the club. The transfer of Aalesund's top scorer last year Leke James (13 goals) is a big blow, but replacer Franck Boli is a similar player with his pace as his strength. Skipper Bjørn Helge Riise will be an important player for the home team through the season, and he'll soon be reunited with his big brother John Arne, who are in Aalesund ready to sign a contract. Only injury for Aalesund is their new signed goalkeeper Lars Cramer. Expected lineup Aalesund: Lie Arnarson – Skagestad – Lie – Kirkeskov Bjørdal – Hoff – Riise – Mos Marlinho – Boli Stabæk had a fantastic season last year under their brilliant head coach Bob Bradley, the American has now left the club and are manager at Le Havre. New head coach at Stabæk is the former Blackburn player Billy McKinlay, who was assistant manager for David Moyes in Real Sociedad. The away side finished on a strong 3rd place last year, with away stats showing 7-3-5. But they finished the end of the season a bit poor, especially after the sale of their top scorer Adama Diomande. Stabæk has played 8 friendlies before this season, these have resulted in 7 losses and only one win. As Aalesund also Stabæk has promoted a lot of junior players from their academy up to their A-squad. The creative and great dribbler Yassine El Ghanassy who was amazing last year in the league has left the club, Ohi Omoijuanfo has been signed from Jerv to play in a similar role. Stabæk's still got one of the best goalkeepers in the league in Sayouba, and also a strong centre back duo in Skjønsberg/Næss. Luckily the lightning quick winger Ernest Asante is still in the club, he will guaranteed be an attraction in the league this year too. Here are the Stabæk transfers ahead of the season: In: Emil Ekblom (defender) back from loan Andreas Hanche-Olsen (defender) junior dep. Jeppe Moe (defender) junior dep. Moussa Njie (midfield) Bærum Emil Bohinen (midfield) junior dep. Emil Dahle (midfield) back from loan Shadrach Eghan (midfield) on loan from Twente Ohi Omoijuanfo (striker) Jerv Sebastian Pedersen (striker) junior dep. Out: Ville Jalasto (defender) HJK Helsinki Anthony Annan (midfield) HJK Helsinki Craig Henderson (midfield) GAIS Yassine El Ghanassy (midfield/striker) Oostende Expected lineup Stabæk: Sayouba Race – Skjønsberg – Næss – Meling Grossman – Gorozia Asante – Issah – Ohi Kassi Aalesund's got a good history against Stabæk. The 13 last meetings shows: 8 Aalesund wins, 3 draws and 2 Stabæk wins. There's a lot of question marks ahead of this game: a whole new back four line at Aalesund and last year top scorer is sold. Stabæk has sold two of their best players from last year (Diomande/El Ghanassy) and also got a new head coach. We belive it's strange that the bookmakers operates with a odds value over 3.00 on an away win, in the first game of a new season. We bet on a Stabæk win today at Color Line Stadion. Aalesund – Stabæk 2
  5. Valencia - Atletico Madrid (06.03.2016) Bet of the Day is picked from Spain and la Liga, and the fantastic Estadio Mestalla. The home team Valencia welcomes second placed Atletico Madrid. This is Gary Neville vs Diego Simeone. Valencia has performed better the last couple of weeks, after a horrible start of the league season, while Atletico is continuing winning and doesn't concede goals. Gary Neville's Valencia is on a disappointing 9th place in the league, the home stats shows poor 4-7-2 at Mestalla. After a 8-1 exit (over two legs) against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey, it's now the league in focus for Valencia. Are through to the next round in Europa League after a 10-0 (two matches) win over Rapid Wien, but this tournament isn't the priority for Neville's men. In the last league matches they won against Granada 1-2, lost against Athletic Bilbao 0-3 and took a quite strong 1-2 win against Malaga. Many will describe the last couple of weeks as a turning point for Valencia, and the results will keep getting better, but the opponents in the last weeks hasn't been the strongest, a big test is ahead of Neville for tonight as they face the «Rojiblancos» from Madrid. Valencia meets an opponent that is difficult to play against, and a massive task to try to break down/create chances against. Zakaria Bakkali (midfield) is injured for the hosts, while Jose Gaya (defender) is suspended. Expected lineup Valencia: Alves Barragan – Mustafi – Santos – Cancelo Gomes – Fuego Feghouli – Parejo – Cheryshev Paco Diego Simeone keeps on cultivating Atletico's style of play. The team seems comfortable in any match scenarios, their passing rate is good and their defense are quite amazing. The red and white from Madrid sits on a 2nd place in the league, and the away stats shows great 10-1-3. Have only conceded 5 goals in their 14 away matches, that's impressing and gives an average of 0,35 goals conceded each away match. The back four with Juanfran, Gimenez, Godin and Filippe Luis have been rock solid this season, Diego Simeone's first priority is to create a strong and safe defensive line...His job is done. Especially 30 years old Diego Godin has been the most impressing at the back, and must be concidering as on of the best centre backs in Europe this season. The away side was knocked out of the Copa del Rey by Celta Vigo, and since then they've lost 2-1 against Barcelona. Thereafter wins against Eibar and Getafe, 0-0 home against Villarreal and a very strong 0-1 win against rivals Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu. In their last match the easily won 3-0 at home against Real Sociedad. Tiago (midfield) and Stefan Savic (defender) are out injured for the guests, while Augusto Fernandez (midfield) is suspended. Expected lineup Atletico Madrid: Oblak Juanfran – Gimenez – Godin – Filipe Luis Koke – Gabi – Ferreira-Carrasco – Niguez Vietto – Griezmann We're surprised over the odds value for a Atletico win, at the moment at 2.00 (1/1), and an away win is without doubt our Bet of the Day. Regardless of how Gary Neville and his Valencia will approach this game, they will face challenges. No one dare to press too high up field against Atletico because of the spaces left behind in the back, at the same time Valencia will have problems breaking through a tight and disciplined back four of Atletico.

  6. Dynamo Kiev - Manchester City (24.02.2016) Read full preview at: http://www.rainbow-bet.com Champions League today as well. Manchester travel east to meet Dynamo Kiev. Stadion NSK Olimpiskiy is the venue where Manuel Pellegrini's men takes on an out of season Dynamo. The home team ended on a 2nd place in the Champions League group G, behind group winners Chelsea. At home in Kiev the stats showed 1-1-1 (win against Maccabi Tel Aviv, draw against Chelsea and a loss against FC Porto). Dynamo ended their league season on a 2nd place, with the same amount of points as league winners Shakhtar Donetsk, the goal difference became crucial. The home side has played a lot of friendlies after the league in Ukraine and the Champions League group stage ended. 7-3-3 are the stats in the friendlies, the defeats came against Malaga, Slavia Prague and Linense. In their last match they beat Norwegian side Strømsgodset 2-1, without impressing. The host has a challenging injury situation, their top scorer and key player Andriy Yarmolenko is doubtful ahead of today's match. This man is so important for Dynamo, it will be a disaster without him. Here is the complete injury list for Dynamo Kiev: Oleksandr Rybka (goalkeeper) doubtful Vitorino Aurtunes (defender) suspended Mykola Morozyuk (midfield) Andriy Yarmolenko (midfield) doubtful Expected lineup Dynamo Kiev: Shovkovsky Vida – Dragovic – Khacheridi – Silva Rybalka – Veloso – Sydonchuk Husyev – Gonzalez Morales The visitors from Manchester has dropped points in the league lately, and also they're dropped down the Premier League table, they're now on a 4th place. 1-2 defeat against Tottenham and a 1-3 defeat against Leicester. In their last FA Cup match against Chelsea, manager Pellegrini almost started with a full junior/reserve lineup. Only Kolarov, Zabaleta, Caballero and Demichelis with experience started this match, the sky blues from Manchester went home with a big 5-1 defeat. Reerve goalkeeper Cabbalero and centre back Demichelis had an awful day at work. Manchester City's also got some injury problems ahead of today's match, but they have a solid and big squad to pick players from. Good news that important Vincent Kompany starts the match in defence, after making his comeback against Tottenham after a long injury spell. Manuel Pellegrini is cynically and his priority is Champions League instead of the FA Cup. The City manager is also looking forward to the Capital One Cup final on Sunday, when they meet Liverpool at Wembley Stadium. The away stats in the league this season shows 5-4-5 for the visitors from England. Sagna (defender), Delph (midfield), Navas (midfield), de Bryne (midfield), Nasri (midfield) and Bony (striker) are all out injured for Manchester City. It's some challenges on their midfield, but this gives City the opportunity to push Yaya Toure up field today. Expected lineup Manchester City: Hart Zabaleta – Kompany – Otamendi – Kolarov Fernando – Fernandinho Silva – Toure – Sterling Aguero It's not easy for any teams to visit Kiev in the middle of the winter, and play a match in these conditions. But Dynamo are out of season in Ukraine and haven't looked to fresh in their last friendly matches, we bet on a Manchester City win today. The away team have struggled to perform in the knockout stage past years in the Champions League, perhaps this will be their year? We are going to see a tight match with few goals, where Dynamo Kiev plays with a compact back four and a defensive midfield trio to deny Manchester City space and counter opportunities. Manchester City win without conceding goals is our Bet of the Day. Dynamo Kiev – Manchester City away team to win without conceding goals
  7. Read full preview at: http://www.rainbow-bet.com It's Champions League at the menu today, we look to London where Arsenal takes on an impressing Barcelona side. Arsenal has only beat Barcelona 1 time on 7 Champions League matches. The home side is on a 3rd place in Premier League behind leading Leicester and local rivals Tottenham, behind are Manchester City chasing. On Emirates the stats shows 8-3-2 this season, are the second best home side in the league. In the Champions League group stage both Dinamo Zagreb and Bayern München was beaten at home, but Arsenal lost surprisingly to greek Olympiakos 2-3. This match is going to be an exciting duel between two teams who enjoy ball possession and are great in counter attacks, but we believe Arsenal may be distracted by fighting on several fronts this season (Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup). Even as Arsenal has made a good league season so far, they have a lack of winning tight matches and a bit of instability over time. On they're last 17 matches in all competitions the draws against Norwich, Stoke, Liverpool and Southampton shows this problem. In the last match Wenger's boys were disappointed with a scoreless draw in the FA Cup against Championship side Hull, wich means another replay in a tight schedule. Gabriel (defender), Tomas Rosicky (midfield), Mikel Arteta (midfield), Jack Wilshere (midfield) and Santi Cazorla (midfield) are out injured for the hosts. Expected lineup Arsenal: Cech Bellerin – Mertesacker – Koscielny – Monreal Coquelin – Ramsey Walcott – Özil – Sanchez Giroud The guests are continuing to impress. Are league leaders 8 points ahead of Atletico Madrid, ready for the Cop del Rey final against Sevilla, and still in the Champions League. The FIFA Club World Cup trophy is already won, after a 0-3 win against Argentinian side River Plate in the final. It looks like this Barcelona team never get stressed, and they are winning matches in a impressively controlled way. The attacking trio MSN with Messi, Suarez and Neymar terrorizing all opponents, they have scored 58 league goals in total this season. The away side has a 8-2-2 away stats in the league, but are most impressing on home soil at Camp Nou. The row without losses for Luis Enrique and his Barcelona side is also amazing, last defeat came away to Sevilla 3rd October last year. After this defeat they've played 32 matches, it's ended up with 26 wins and 6 draws. Won their Champions League group ahead of Roma and Bayer Leverkusen with a total stat of gret 4-2-0. Luis Suarez is the most impressing offensive player this season, he's been absolutely magnificent. Has scored 25 league goals this season and is the top scorer in la Liga 3 goals ahead of Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo. Only unavailable players for Barcelona are Rafinha (midfield) and suspended Arda Turan (midfield). Expected lineup Barcelona: ter Stegen Alves – Pique – Mascherano – Alba Rakitic – Busquets – Iniesta Messi – Suarez – Neymar This may be an even game, but we're pretty sure Barcelona will take home a win. Arsenal could get some tempo problems between their centre backs and defensive midfielders in Barcelona counters, especially if Coquelin doesn't do his job. We'll combine a Barcelona win with a Luis Suarez goal today, he will keep on performing goal vice, and he'll get a lot of opportunities with Lionel Messi at his back. Suarez also got the experience against Premier League opponents, and got power and smartness in his play. Arsenal – Barcelona 2 & Suarez to score 2.95 Unibet 2.80 bwin 2.30 BetVictor 2.70 Betsafe
  8. read full preview at: http://www.rainbow-bet.com 2.leg in the semifinal in Copa del Rey, Celta Vigo vil try to get a revenge after the big 4-0 defeat in the 1.leg. Barcelona are waiting in the Copa del Rey final and will meet the winner of these two sides. The home team are surely disappointed after the big 4-0 defeat at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. That match was more even than the 4-0 result tells us, three of Sevilla's goals was made after counter attacks, where Sevilla showed their top class in counter and possession play. The quick striker Kevin Gameiro scored in the 60. and the 62. minute, before Michael Krohn-Dehli made the final result with his goal. Celta manager Eduardo Berizzo will try to make an attempt to punish the opponents today, but it's an almost impossible task. Celta played Sevilla in the league last weekend, that match ended in a 1-1 draw. Both Guidetti and great Orellana are expected back in tonight's lineup. Celta plays with a lot of energy and tempo in their game, and have to give it all in this match. It will be an open match tonight and we'll probably see a lot of goals. Nolito (striker) is still injured for the hosts, also defender Andreu Fontas are out. Expected lineup Celta Vigo: Blanco Jonny – Cabral – Gomez – Mallo Hernandez – Radoja – Wass Aspas – Guidetti – Orellana Sevilla and their manager Unai Emery have a comfortable lead, and will probably rotate a bit in their starting lineup. Emery does this a lot, but the big question is if it's Gamiro or Llorente who starts up top for the visitors. Gameiro was fantastic in the first leg, and are a counter treat on his own. Sevilla's got a bit of injury problems in their defense, but still got a big squad to pick players from. Emery's side is a typical home team, and the league stats shows that in a quite funny way: Home: 10 wins, 0 draws, 2 defeats Away: 0 wins, 7 draws, 4 defeats The away side can lose with 3 goals or less and still go through to the final where they meet the mighty FC Barcelona. But the starting lineup for Sevilla is still a big uncertainty. Celta will give it all tonight. Injury list Sevilla: Marco Andreolli (defender) Nicolas Pareja (defender) Federico Fazio (defender) suspended Grzegorz Krychowiak (midfield) Expected lineup Sevilla: Rico Coke – Rami – Kolodziejczak – Tremoulinas N'Zonzi – Cristoforo Vitolo – Banega – Krohn-Dehli Gameiro We believe Celta Vigo will make an honest attempt to make the final today. But it could be dangerous to chase goals high up the field against Sevilla. We bet on a Celta Vigo win combined with over 3,5 goals, in a match that might be amazing to watch. Home win & over 3,5 goals 6.75 at bwin, bet now-----> bet now at bwin
  9. Read full preview at: http://www.rainbow-bet.com We're going to Britannia Stadium for round 25 in the Premier League. Stoke City welcomes the draw experts Everton. Stoke manager Mark Hughes need to pick up some league points after a hectic period with league matches, Capital One Cup and FA Cup. The home side is on a 10th in the league, with 5-2-4 homestats at Britannia. A 0-0 draw home against Arsenal was followed by a 3-0 loss away to Leicester, and last week a 3-0 loss away to Manchester United. In the meantime the red and white has been knocked out of the Capital One Cup after penalties against Liverpool. Also the FA Cup are history after losing 1-0 away against Crystal Palace. Stoke has impressed at times in the league, and now they can continue concentration on the league. Have some injury problems in their squad, especially both centre back's Shawcross and Wollscheid are important absences. Ryan Shawcross has been really good and stable this season, and is one of the key players in the Stoke squad. Injury list Stoke City: Shay Given (goalkeeper) Marc Wilson (defender) Ryan Shawcross (defender) Philipp Wollscheid (defender) Geoff Cameron (defender) Expected lineup Stoke City: Butland Johnson – Muniesa – Bardsley – Pieters Whelan – Imbula Shaqiri – Bojan – Arnautovic Walters Everton is the team in Premier League with most draws, but last week they showed their strengths with a great 3-0 win at home to Newcastle. Two of the goal came from penalties, and both scored by the young and promising Ross Barkley. Roberto Martinez's side sits on the place behind Stoke on the table, on 11th. The away stats shows 3-7-1. Lost the opportunity to play their local rivals Liverpool in the Capital One Cup final, after losing 3-1 to Manchester City in the semifinal. The blues from Liverpool are still playing in the FA Cup after beating Carlisle 0-3 in the last round. All are waiting for Everton to perform and stabilize themselves, they've got a strong squad but are failing to deside even matches. Lukaku is still a big threat up top for Everton, the striker's got 15 goals in the league, 3 behind the Premier League top scorer Jamie Vardy (Leicester). Defensive absences for the away side as well, John Stones is the most important. Injury list Everton: Tim Howard (goalkeeper) Tony Hibbert (defender) Tyias Browning (defender) John Stones (defender) Muhamed Besic (midfield) Expected lineup Everton: Robles Coleman – Jagielka – Mori – Baines McCarthy – Barry Lennon – Barkley – Cleverley Lukaku Exciting offensive players from start on both team, while important defensive players are out injured. Especially Muniesa at Stoke will have a big challenge in the duels and pressing in the middle spaces. At the same time Imbula will make his debut at the defensive midfield for Stoke, he's a strong player with a big work-rate. Imbula and Whelan will make the job difficult for the Everton midfield to create chances today. We find the value in this match at a draw, perhaps we'll see a few goals too. We bet on a draw at Britannia. Stoke – Everton X
  10. Read full preview at: http://www.rainbow-bet.com Midweek round in the Premier League, 8 games today, and the last 2 games are played tomorrow. Today we're going to The Hawthorns where Tony Pulis's West Bromwich takes on Francesco Guidolin's Swansea. This is going to be a tight game, where the most important for both sides is to not concede goals. The home side sits on a 14th in the Premier League, the home stats shows 4-3-5. Tony Pulis is well known for everyone and we know what's important for him, not concede goals with a tight defensive line, and at the same time play direct often with long balls involved. 22 goals scored on 23 matches for WBA tells us about a cynically team that are not playing to entertain. Pulis has signed Sandro (midfield) on loan from QPR and also Alex Prichard (midfield) on loan from Tottenham. WBA have a quite long injury list ahead of today's game: Ben Foster (goalkeeper) doubtful Darren Fletcher (midfield) doubtful Saido Berahino (striker) doubtful Chris Brunt (midfield) Callum McManaman (midfield) James Morrison (midfield) Expected lineup WBA (4-4-1-1): Myhill Dawson – McAuley – Olsson – Evans Sessegnon – Yacob – Fletcher – McClean Berahino Anichebe The away side's new manager Francesco Guidolin made a fantastic debut with a 1-2 win away against Everton last round. We saw a different Swansea side in that match, then we've seen all season. It was a lot of energy in their play, and we believe the manager switch was the turning point for the Welch club. Lies on a 15th place in the league, with away stats 2-3-6. Swansea's got a strong first team lineup and has been under performing so far this season, could the visitors and Guidolin continue with another win today? The Italian manager has signed striker Alberto Paloschi from Chievo and Leroy Fer (midfield) on loan from QPR. Especially Paloschi is a good signing, Swansea need a striker and only Gomis (at times) has delivered after Wilfried Bony left the club nad signed for Manchester City. The striker flop Eder has gone on loan to play in Ligue 1 in France. No injuries in the Swansea squad. Expected lineup Swansea (4-3-1-2): Fabianski Rangel – Fernandez – Williams – Taylor Cork – Britton – Ki Sigurdsson Routledge – Ayew We're most likely going to see an even match today, and perhaps with few goals. The formations from both teams from start tells us about the importance of not concede goals with defensive four back lines and deep midfielders. But these matches never ends up in a draw in a historical point of view. On the last 11 matches, the stats shows: 4 WBA wins 0 draws 7 Swansea wins In 5 of these 11 matches it's been a draw at halftime, we think it will happen today as well. WBA's Yacob and a slow centre back Olsson could be in trouble in the space between their midfield and defense when they're up against quick and creative Sigurdsson, Routledge and Ayew. We believe Swansea will continue they're climbing up on the Premier League table, and take all three points from The Hawthorns today. We play the betting object halftime/full-time and pick draw/away win West Bromwich – Swansea X/2 (Halftime/Full Time)
  11. Read full preview at: http://www.rainbow-bet.com Paris FC welcomes Clermont Foot to Stade Sébastien Charléty for the 24th round of Ligue 2 in France, kick off 20.30 (CET). The home team has only manage to get 10 points in their 12 matches at home in the French capital. Paris FC are at the bottom of the table on 20th with only 16 points. Their last 6 matches have only given them 1 point, this point was picked from their bottom colleagues Sochaux (18th). In the last match they lost 1-0 away from home to Brest. The one and only win for Paris came back in August last year, they have now played 22 matches without another win. The home like a lot of other teams from France plays a lot of draws, the total season stats shows 1-13-9. It doesn't help Paris FC that their top scorer Grange is out injured ahead of today's match. Who will make score goals for them in this match? These players are unavailable for Paris FC today: Bouchard (goalkeeper) Bongongui (midfield) Diarra (striker) suspended Ayari (striker) Grange (striker) The visitors are on a good 5th place in Ligue 2 with 37 points. Lost 3-1 in the weekend against league leaders Nancy, also lost 6-2 three weeks ago against the form team in the league Nimes, Nimes have actually taken 12 of their 25 points on their last 4 matches, they're really in good shape. Without these two losses, Clermont Foot's got 5-1-0 on their last 8 matches, great stats for today's away side. The evening they meet the table jumbo, and only three points are good enough. Clermont Foot also got the top scorer in Ligue 2, the Senegalese Famara Diedhiou (on loan from Sochaux) has scored amazing 21 goals on his 23 games this season. Diedhiou is only 23 years old, but with his hight at 1,92 cm, he's booth good in the air and with the ball in his feets. He's in real goal scoring form with 7 goals on his last 5 appearances. We're sure that Clermont Foot will score in this match, but when it comes to score goals it would be a hard task for the hosts, they've only scored 15 goals on their 23 matches so far. Unavailable players for Clermont Foot: Agounon (defender) suspended Goncalves (midfield) Genest (midfield) We bet on an away win to Clermont Foot at Stade Sébastien Charléty today, to a quite surprising high odds value. Many will say it's a high risk for a draw in this match, but because of the circumstances earlier written we see most value in a clear away win. Paris FC – Clermont Foot 2
  12. Read full preview at: http://www.rainbow-bet.com Second leg in the Capital One Cup semifinal, Liverpool takes on Stoke at Anfield Road. The home side won 0-1 at Britannia in the first leg, but still got a long injury list. The team who win over two legs will meet either Everton or Manchester City in the final at Wembley. The home team has played some entertaining matches lately. 2-2 against Exeter, 3-3 in the Premier League against Arsenal and in the weekend an incredible 4-5 win to Norwich. If we can see a match with a lot of goal today is another matter. Divock Origi is in really goalform at the moment, scoring 4 goals in his last 3 league matches. Origi is unfortunately unavailable for today's game. Good news that centre back Dejan Lovren is recovered after his injury, but expected to start on the bench. An extra motivating for Liverpool is that they may meet their local rivals Everton in the final (Everton beat Manchester City 2-1 in the first leg). These players are unavailable for Liverpool today: Nathaniel Clyne (defender) Steven Caulker (defender) Martin Skrtel (defender) Joe Gomez (defender) Connor Randall (defender) Philippe Coutinho (midfield) Jordon Rossiter (midfield) Daniel Sturridge (striker) Divock Origi (striker) Danny Ings (striker) Expected lineup Liverpool: Mignolet Enrique – Toure – Sakho – Moreno Henderson – Lucas – Can Ibe – Benteke – Milner The away side are looking for a revenge after the 0-1 defeat at home in the first leg, and have to score goals tonight to go through to the final. After a 3-0 win against Norwich in the league, it's been 0-0 home against Arsenal and an ugly 3-0 defeat away to Leicester in the weekend. Stoke have shown that their top level are high this season, but they're still a bit unstable in performance. The important centre back Ryan Shawcross are out due to injury for Stoke. Geoff Cameron (defender) and Shay Given (goalkeeper) are also unavailable. Marko Arnautovic is fit after his hamstring injury, but it's a big question is Mark Hughes starts with his top scorer in this match. A possible choice is Mame Biram Diouf if Arnautovic is benched. Expected lineup Stoke: Butland Johnson – Wilson – Wollscheid – Pieters Whelan – Afellay Walters – Bojan – Arnautovic Crouch Stoke manager Mark Hughes seems to have a plan to exploit Liverpool weakness on set pieces/corner kicks tn todays game. 203 cm high Peter Crouch will most likely play up to for the visitors. Ex Liverpool player Crouch has a good stat against his former club, has scored 3 goals in his last 5 apperances against Jurgen Klopp's side. The goals came back in March 2012, January 2014 and the last one in May 2015. Liverpool will lose pace on their right side with important Clyde missing out. Both Bojan and Arnautovic can use the space that Liverpool leaves behind, to try to find Crouch with crosses to the box. Liverpool has been uncomfortable on crosses in the box through the whole season, and it looks like a good game plan for Stoke to play a more direct and long ball style today. The man they'll try to find is Crouch, most likely in the air. We see great value in Crouch continues his stats against Liverpool today, and bet he'll nick in a goal in this game. Peter Crouch (goalscorer)
  13. Read full preview at: http://www.rainbow-bet.com Rayo Vallecano welcomes Celta Vigo to Campo de Futbol de Vallecas for the 21.league round in La Liga. A ball possession home team can't seem to deliver results this season, and this evening the meet a team who likes to play against these type of opponents. Rayo is on a 19th place in the league, and are fighting for survival. Only got 2 points more than jumbos Levante, they've only got 16 points so far and 3-2-5 at home. Rayo has now played 10 matches in the league and the cup without a win, the last win came back in early november against Getafe (2-0). Rayo Vallecano has only won against Getafe, Granada and Espanyol, all considered as weak away teams. The home team likes to have ball possession, and are quite good at this. Have generally more ballpossession than their opponents, regardless of who they play against. 11 goals on 10 home matches tells us about a team that don't create enough chances on goal, and at the same time are inefficient. Adrian Emborba (midfield) was injured against Valencia in Copa del Rey last match, besides both their reserve goalkeepers are out with injuries. Here is the complete injury list: Tono (goalkeeper) David Cobeno (goalkeeper) Razvan Rat (defender) Patrick Ebert (midfield) Adrian Emborba (midfield) Expected lineup Rayo Vallecano: Yoel Quini – Ze Castro – Tito – Martinez Trashorras – Llorente Bangoura – Jozabed – Hernandez Guerra The visitors are on a great 5th place in La Liga with 34 points, are at the same time the second best away side in the league behind Atletico Madrid with a 5-2-2 stat. Their last match against exactly Altletico Madrid in Copa del Rey ended up in a scoreless draw, in a match where Celta dominated at times but couldn't find the winning goal. The task is hard in the 2.leg in Madrid. This match is perfect for the visitors, they like the lie deep in their well-known 4-3-3 formation and surprise their opponents with fast counter attacks and attacks after breaks. Celta has been very good at this the entire season. It's expected that Pablo Hernandez (midfield) and Jonas Guidetti (striker) are rested from start. A lot of doubts around striker Nolito, but Celta's got a fearsome treat with their wings Aspas (9 goals) and Orellana (6 goals). Andreu Fontas (defender) and Marcelo Diaz (midfield) are out injured for the visitors. Expeccted lineup Celta Vigo: Alvarez Jonny – Cabral – Gamez Sola – Mallo Radoja – Wass – Bogonda Orellana – Beauvue – Aspas With a home team struggling, especially at home, we think it's a worst case scenario to meet Celta Vigo today. We've been fascinated of Celta's offensive play this season, and they're undoubtedly best as outsiders in matches. At the same time we're surprised of the high odds value for Celta. The 10 last matches between these two teams shows: 5 Rayo Vallecano wins 1 draw 4 Celta Vigo wins We don't think this game will end in a draw, and bet on an away win for Celta Vigo. Rayo will have a lot of ball possession, but the striker-trio don't need many chances to punish the hosts. Rayo Vallecano – Celta Vigo 2
  14. Read full preview at: http://www.rainbow-bet.com The winter break are over in Germany, and it's time for Bundesliga matches once again. Today the hosts Hamburger SV are up for a hard task, when they welcomes the league leaders Bayern Munich to Volksparkstadion. The home side are struggling with injuries on key players ahead of this clash. Hamburger manager Bruno Labbadia knows it's going to be a difficult game at home today. Labbadia's team is down at a 10th place in the Bundesliga with 22 points, a poor home stat shows 2-2-4. Hamburger probably thought it was nice with a little winter break, as they only got 1 point in their last 3 matches. Has played 3 friendlies in the winter break, all ended up with losses (Young Boys 2-1, Erfurt 1-2, Ajax 1-3). It's a few injuries in the Hamburger squad, but key players are out injured and some are very doubtful. Albin Ekdal (midfield) and Emir Spahic (defender) are out injured. Both captain Johan Djourou (defender) and top goalscorer Pierre-Michel Lasogga have been injured in training during the week, and are very doubtful for todays match. Expected lineup Hamburger SV: Adler Diekmeier – Cleber – Djourou – Ostrzolek Kacar – Holtby Müller – Hunt – Ilicevic Lasogga The league leaders Bayern Munich have 46 points so far in the Bundesliga. Only Borussia Mönchengladbach and Eintracht Frankfurt have taken points from Pep Guardiola's men this season. Went an a rare defeat in their only friendly in the winter break, as they lost 2-1 to Karlsruher. Good news for Bayern that Ribery, Götze and Benatia are back in training after injuries, but it's still a way to go before they're match fit. Injury list Bayern Munich: Sven Ulreich (goalkeeper) Rafinha (defender) Juan Bernat (defender) Mehdi Beenatia (defender) Frank Ribery (midfield) Mario Götze (striker) Expected lineup Bayern Munich: Neuer Alaba – Martinez – Boateng – Lahm Robben – Vidal – Alonso – Costa Müller Lewandowski In the last 24 meeting between Hamburger and Bayern Munich the stats are: 2 Hamburger wins, 5 draws and 17 Bayern Munich wins. It use to be a lot of goals in these matches, Bayern has scored 66 goals against Hamburger in their 17 wins. This gives an average of 3,88 goals pr game. In this season the away side has scored 46 goals on their 17 matches, which gives an goal-average of 2,70 pr game. When we look at Bayern goalscorers this season, it's likely to see them on the score sheet in todays match as well. Robert Lewandowski has scored 15 goals in the league, 3 goals behind the Bundesliga's top goalscorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Dortmund), on the 3rd place is Bayern colleague Thomas Müller with 14 goals. Lewandowski and Müller have together scored i 29 of Bayern Munich's total 46 goals. These two players are responsible for 63% of the goals for th league leaders this season. Thomas Müller who plays in a deeper role behind Lewandowski has a fantastic stat against Hamburger, Müller has scored 6 goals in his last 6 starts against todays opponent. Last year he scored 4 goals in the 2 games against them. Thomas Müller is also the penalty taker for Bayern. We look at a great odds value and think Müller once again will get on the score sheet for Bayern against Hamburger, especially when at least one (perhaps two) of the centre defenders are out for the home side. Thomas Müller (goalscorer)
  15. Read full preview at: http://www.rainbow-bet.com Today is another quarterfinal in Copa del Rey. Sevilla takes on Mirandés at Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, kick off 21.00 (CET), this is the 1.leg of 2. The winner after two matches will meet either Celta Vigo or Atletico Madrid in the semifinal. Sevilla continues winning in la Liga, they have 4 wins in a row now, and 9 wins in a row at home in all touraments. The last pointless home match was back in November, when Manchester City won 1-3 at Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán in the Champions League group stage. Sevilla is on a 7th place in the league, a little bit under the expectations, the third best home team in la Liga (behind Barcelona and Real Madrid) with 9-0-2. Only Celta Vigo and Atletico Madrid have taken points point from Sevilla at home in the league. Manager Unai Emery and his Sevilla side has beaten strong opponents like Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona at home this season, it tells us about a strong home team, who are stable and plays with a lot of confidence in front of the own supporters. Knocked out Logrones and Real Betis so far in Copa del Rey. Sevilla probably starts with a fantastic strong starting eleven in this match, we are not in doubt that they will win against the Segunda Division side with good margin at home today. The home side have a good depth in their squad, as well as quality, they have the possibility to rotate on the starting eleven in the league as well as the cup without any problems. Manager Emery will probably make 8 changes from the last match in la Liga against Malaga, only Rico (goalkeeper), Rami (defender) and Banega (midfield) played last Saturday. Nicolas Pareja (defender) and Marco Andreolli (defender) are injured for the hosts. Expected lineup Sevilla: Rico Mariano – Rami – Kolodziejczak – Escudero Iborra – N'Zonzi Reyes – Banega – Konoplyanka Llorente The away team are dreaming of a semifinal place in Copa del Rey, but first this difficult task waits for them. Mirandés have knocked out Real Oviedo, Osasuna and the two la Liga sides Malaga and Deportivo La Coruna, great achievement. Is on a 11th place in Segunda Division, with an away stats at 4-3-4. The away side have a small squad which includes only 22 players, 3 of these are goalkeepers. Tried to rest a few first-team players in their last league match against Leganes, the match ended in an ugly 4-0 defeat away from home. Abdon Prats (striker), Marco Sagalli (midfield) and important Junior Lago (midfield) started on the bench in that match, and are all expected to play today. Expected lineup Mirandés: Fernandez Moreno – Ortiz – Cantero Eguaras – Lazaro – Salinas – Provencio Garcia – Prats – Sangalli This match will show the difference in quality from these two sides, unfortunately we think the cup adventure for Mirandés is over after todays match. We think Mirandés can be vulnerable if they choose to play with a threeback line, as they did against Deportivo La Coruna. With Reyes and Konoplyanka who can challenge on the wings as well as in the middle, the away team can be in big trouble on Sevilla breaks or counter attacks. Banega will be important in the match, a deep midfielder who dictates the tempo and passes the ball around, also a rested Llorente who are extremely good in the air, could create problems for Mirandés. We bet on a home win to Sevilla at Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán with European Handicap, Sevilla must win with at least 2 goals more than Mirandés for the bet to be won. The odds are around 1.70 on the market. Sevilla – Mirandés 1 (EH -1) (0-1)
