24.-30.11. VIP

Posted by CaStRoF, December 1st, 2014 | Comments Off


AGF 4th with two games less than others. They must make resualts in that two games and season is long (half) so their promotion hopes are still live. Vronshoj in problems..


Bronshoej had only 14 men with Viborg, as the team has been hit hard by injuries.

In Viborg were both Jesper Fleckner and Oke Akpoveta injured, but how bad things are with them, is still uncertain

Lukas Fernandes – David Cortés, Arthur Sorin, Jens Jønsson, Daniel Christensen – Helgi Danielsson, Kasper Povlsen – Kim Aabech – Stephan Petersen, Jesper Lange, Mate Vatsadze.

28.11. Serie B » Pescara – Lanciano  1-1

Pescara 18th with 16 pts after ​ 15, Lanciano 6th with 23.

Pescara for this game in problems, 4 players under suspension and at last 5 players injured (maybe even 8). Suspended are Raffaele Pucino (df 14/0), Dario Zuparic (df 12/0), Flavio Lazzari (mf 9/1), Riccardo Maniero (att 10/8, topscorer). Injured are Deian Boldor (df 1/0), Gordan Bunoza, Gaston Brugman (mf 0/0), Hrvoje Milicevic (mf 0/0), Gianluca Caprari (att 4/0).

double bet Trabzonspor (1,4) x Zurich (1,4) > 1,96 5/10 BetVictor, WillHill, bwin 

Trabzonspor – Metalist Kharkiv 1 @ 1,4  3-1

Trabzon humiliated Galata at Türk Telekom Arena with 0-3. Seems coach change was good move. In EL group they are 2nd and still need to comfirm next phase. They have manny absences but thats even before of season start. They bring manny manny players and they have good line up for this game, probably:

Fatih Öztürk- Bosingwa, Belkalem, Papadopoulos, Musa Nizam, Medjani, Salih Dursun, Waris, Mehmet Ekici, Yusuf, Cardozo

Metalist in big problems (inside problems, financial, resault problems..)..In gorup they are last with 0 points. For this game they are without key man Cleiton Xavier (mf 9/8), A. Yussuf (mf 6/1), Edmar (mf 8/0), defenxer Moledo. Papa Gueye (df 4/0 is doubtful). Posible rotations to focus on league

Trabzon won in Ukraine

Zurich – Apollon 1 @ 1,4  3-1

Zurich 3rd after M’glaadbach and Villarreal but after last round win over Villarreal they have chance for next pphase. In first game on Cyprus they was better team but failed to win. There are 4 long term injuries

Apollon focused on league and will make rotations. For sure they left 6 players at home and posible other rotations.

Argentina, Rosario Central – Racing Club 0-3

I thout this as VIP but i wanted wait news foor hosts and odds dropped (was also not high). Anyway, Rosario played cup finale 120 min + penalties and lost after penalties vs 2nd league club. posible squad rotations

Racing in good form, leading table..

Por lo tanto, el ’11’ de arranque sería: Sebastián Saja; Iván Pillud, Luciano Lollo, Yonathan Cabral, Germán Voboril; Gastón Díaz, Ezequiel Videla, Luciano Aued, Ricardo Centurión; Diego Milito y Gustavo Bou.

28.11. ligue 2, Arles-Avignon – Dijon ah0 Dijon @ 1,793 5/10 Pinnacle   0-2

Last placed team will host 2nd best. In Arles situation very bad (it was clear before season start when key players left), they have already third coach this season. Also that coach didnt even take 3 standard players last week, Bocaly (df 5/0), Hammar (mf 7/1) and Savanier (mf 12/2) and seems will not this game again. Also they have expirienced defender Jonathan Zebina (df 4/0) suspended for this game. Out are also Gigot (mf 11/2), Medjelled (mf 1/0), Rosado (mf 4/0) and topscorer Touré (att 11/5). Too manny important missings for this small squad, specially offensivemissings. And if we look their weak defence with alreaddy tree goalkeepers changed this season…

Dijon key target before season was promotion fight but now, specially if they imporve away games, they are title candidates. They have injured long term Jessy Benet (mf 4/0) and Pape Paye (df 2/0) and doubtful Lois Diony (att 14/1) and Jeremie Bela (att 12/1). Important offensive player Júlio Tavares (att 14/2) is back after injury

29.11. Nautico – Ponte Preta 

I hope we will catch ah0 on Ponte preza but no. Usually this Would be VIP

Last round, for Nautico season finished, they dont wanna play any more, they just wanna their saleries. If no money they will not play and youngsters (u20) will play

Ponte Preta

​However, no prospects of having the late salaries, the players decided not to work and left the scene with their cars within the stipulated time for training.
​Thus, there is the possibility of Nautical enter the under-20 team last matchday of Serie B, scheduled for this Saturday. The Thimphu faces Ponte Preta, which still fight for the title of the competition.

​Ponte Preta best line up
A provável Ponte tem Roberto, Jeferson (Rodinei), Tiago Alves, Gilvan e Bryan; Adilson Goiano, Juninho e Renato Cajá; Roni, Cafu (Alexandro) e Rafael Costa.

29.11. Serie B, Icasa – Boa -1ah Boa @ 1,79 Sbo 5/10  3-2

Icasa already relegated and now 10 players left club:
Naylhor df 30/2, Gilberto df 26/1, Carlinho Rech df 11/0 e Zeca df 13/0. Erik, Danilo mf 8/1, Albano mf 12/0, Marco Tiago df 2/0, Rodrigo Fernandesdf 3/0 e Dodó

​There will be more leavings and in this game alternative line up

Boa need for Serie A, they keep last promotion place and cannot failed now. Boa with two long ter,m missings

Criciuma – Sport Recife ah0 Sport @ 1,877 pinnacle 5/10 void 1-1

Criciuma last placed on table and cannot save from relegation. Club left 13 players:

Além do treinador, mas 13 jogadores foram dispensados pelo Criciúma. São eles: Tigre Galatto gk 15/0, Gualberto df 14/0 , Eli Sabiá df 0/0, Cortês df 21/0, Martinez mf 11/0 , Rodrigo Souza mf 24/3 , Serginho mf 13/1, Rafael Costa mf 10/0, Roger Gaúcho mf 3/0, Paulo Baier mf 14/5 , Souza att 13/4, Igor e Luiz Felipe 10/1.

​Also, for this game they are without 10 more players injured so their small squad must put youngsters and debutants

Injured are
Luiz Silva (gk 15/0), Alcides (df 2/0) , Ronaldo Alves (df 12/1), Heitor (0/, Eduardo (df 25/0), Maylson (mf 4/0), Danilo Alves (att 5/0), Gustavo (5/0), Silvinho (att 22/3), Ze Carlos (att 9/0)​

​Sport in good forma nd wanna finish as higher as possible (currently 10th on table but can be from 14th to 8th place). They would not experiment with their squad. Imp defender Danilo (20/3) suspended

Magrão; Patric, Durval, Ewerton Páscoa e Renê; Rodrigo Mancha, Rithely, Wendel, Diego Souza e Mike; Joelinton.
Técnico: Eduardo Baptista.

Panionios – Niki Volos; Panionios -1 @ 1,77 Sbo 5/10  2-1 void

After pause, after problems in Greece football, league continue. Panionios is team home team which most of their points won at home, last season 30 of 39 won at home. They won now 8 points in 9 games, not good, not powerfull team but games like this must win. Out is midfieldcer E. Siopis (9/0) and no other selection problems

Oponents Niki Volos promoted from 2nd league and now last placed. Scored just 3 times with worst defence in league usually would be underdogs. In this game asl owithout 5 key players, Kotsaridis (mf 9/0), Stambolziev (mf 6/0), Niklitsiotis (mf 7/0), Machlelis (mf 7/0) and Shkurtaj (att 7/1).

Home team vs worst team in league in problems and also away 0-0-5, 1:13

Istra – Dinamo; Dinamo -1@ 1,84 188bet, BetVictor  0-4

Time for Dinamo’s win after long time, in november without win (true, they will get 3 points from game with Hajduk which didnt played). Anyway, Rijeka come too close and resaults in Europe very bad so nothing other than win here. Sounds crazy but i belive if no win today Mamic would must fired his brother and they both dont wanna this. So, also posible ‘help’ if needed..

Dinamo has long term missings and of course best roster. Some players must still show they deserve to play for Dinamo, transfer window is comming..

Istra has weak attack and half of goals scored Dinamo’s (Dinamo buy him from Istra and at begining iof season sent on loan again to Istra) Radonjic (att 12/8, scored on last 3). He will not play today. Also today is out pamis’s son Zvonko (mf 5/1), defenders Vučko, Batur and midfielder Franjić. In attack will play no-goal tandem Jo (problematical striker, posible red card) and Jordan

weekedn VIP (17-23.11.)

Zadar – Rijeka  -1,25 Rijeka @ 1,82 Sbo 5/10  0-1 

It’s not hard to explain how big quality difference is between this two clubs (or just look resault of last game 6-1 for Rijeka). Will try shortly as posible:

Rijeka’s players Ivan Vargić, Marin Leovac, Anas Sharbini, Marko Lešković, Matej Mitrović, Ivan Tomečak, Mato Jajalo, Ivan Močinić, Mate Maleš (injured long term) and Andrej Kramarić are Croatian National team players while are Miral Samardžić and Goran Cvijanović in Slovenian National football team. Also Zoran Kvržić in B&H NT..

Rijeka is impresivve, specially attacking where they have 2nd European scorer, Andrej Kramaric (21 goal in 14 games, 2nd after Crostiano Ronaldo).

Zadar probably weakest club, no quality, their ‘best player’ is their coach Ćiro but his time is over before few years. When he come he made tree good resaults but two of them was fixed.

Rijeka is serious team,need to win to stay by Dinamo (and hope Hajduk can do something in biggiest Croatia derby). Rijeka just long term missings while Zadar without club legend Jakov Surač (mf 6/0), midfielder Jerbić (10/0) and attackers Solomon (7/0) and Šimunac (11/0). They are not scoring but reciving, they get 40 goals in 15 rounds (and just Kramarić from Rijeka scored 21)

24.11. Primera B, Huracán – Unión Santa Fe  ah0 Union @ 2,04 Ibc 3/10  1-2

shame for low limits

Huracan won in cup semifinals and will rest key players – just tw days after this game is main game of season, cup finale

Union best team in whole league (groups a and b). They won 7 in a row. Two imp missings (striker Guerrera 13/8 and midfielder Fabbro 13/3) but that’s nothing if we look Huracan all key players resting

En consecuencia, el posible once del Unión ya ascendido para visitar a Huracán en el Tomás A. Ducó sería con: Nereo Fernández; Ema Brítez, Juan Pablo Avendaño, Diego Barisone y Santiago Zurbriggen; Fausto Montero, Mauricio Martínez, Juan Rivas e Ignacio Malcorra; Enrique Triverio y Lucas Gamba.

i thout there will not be game because just two days later cup finale but association comfirmed game​

La AFA confirmó este martes por la nocha la programación de la fecha 20 del Nacional B, en la que Unión visitará a Huracán en el “Tomás Ducó” el lunes a las 17.30,

Racing – River  1 @ 2,5 BetVictor 5/10  1-0 

River first on table, season almost over but they must rest several key players for Sudamericana (with Boca Semifinals)..Coach will change 7 key players. Racing 2nd on tasble with just one point less

the only change would be the income Cocca Nicolas Sanchez for Yonathan Cabral, who was sent off against Quilmes. Thus the computer to receive a River formed with: Sebastian Saja; Gaston Diaz, Luciano Lollo, Sanchez, Leandro Grimi; Mark Acuna, Videla, Luciano Aued Ricardo Centurion; Diego Milito and Gustavo Bou.


23.11. Santos – Sao Paulo  ah0 Santos @ 1,961 Pinancle 5/10  0-1

Santos playing for nothing but will not relaxer in this big Brazilian derby. Defender David Braz and midfielder Geuvânio are injured

SaoPaulo was long in title fight but at the end they failed. They had some chances but tonight Cruzeiro won and went 3 rounds till end on big 7 pts.

But reason for this bet, good reason is Sao Paulo played Copa Sudamewricana semifinals in Colombia, lost 1-0 vs Atletico Nacional and now will play 2nd leg at home. Coach will rest key players 

​Muricy Ramalho left the match against Atletico Nacional (COL), on Wednesday in Medellin, convinced he needs to give rest to the players of São Paulo. And from what the coach said, it will be done on Sunday, the derby against Santos at the Arena Pantanal in Cuiabá. Muricy explained that, if not save, the team will have no chance of reversing the 1-0 suffered in the semifinal of the Copa Sudamericana in reaching the decision.

- We need to see the moment. It’s game with travel, is another thing. Are two trips back and our trip to Cuiaba. You would at home could risk the problem is the game on Sunday. If you place again, has no chance of them to play Wednesday. We are not preparing anything. Priority is nothing is the matter of human being – the coach said.

- We are taking the limit. We judiando them (the players). Now we have to take a break even, because otherwise we will not recover for the game on Wednesday. We are losing players by trauma, oddly enough our muscular part is great – completed technical. ​
​Neutral field but Santos big chance here against reserves Sao ​

​Flamengo – Criciuma  1-1 

Criciuma relase 13 players and some youngsters will get chance. Flamengo also will rotate squad – players at the end of contract will get chance to impress and get new cintract..​

23.11. Boca Juniors – Independiente  ah0 Indep. @ 1,96 Ibc 5/10 3-1 

Will be short. You know we hav twice VIp this month against Boca (when they lost vs San lorenzo it was winning VIP, last weekend draw with Arsenal was void). Anyway, this league game comming between two most important games (only could be more important if come to finale) in copa sudamericana semifinals with biggiest rival River – between two superclasico..So Boca will rest all key players 

Independiente dont have missing woes, they are third on table with kjust 3 points from top placed River (which play not that two most important games and will rotate or will have tired legs so posible to come even closer) and two far from Racing.

this is Boca 11 for River and that all players should Boca rest:
Orión; Marín, Forlín, Díaz, Colazo; Meli, Erbes, Gago; Martínez, Calleri y Chávez, serían los once para el choque por la Copa Sudamericana de mañana frente a River

Karpaty – Shakhtar  0-2 

Karpaty won 9 pts but association took them 9 pts and they are last with 0 now. Shakhtar not powerfull as last years, not they are behind Dynamo Kiev and Dnjipro

The football club from the city on Wednesday urged “to assess the secret meeting between the Chairman of the Committee of Arbitrators FFU Vasyl Melnychuk and administrator of” Shakhtar “Damir Zinnatullina, which in the past has repeatedly accused the pressure on the judges during matches Donetsk team”.


22.11. FC Copenhagen – Silkeborg  -1,25 Fc Copenhagen @ 2,0 Pinnacle 5/10  1-1
Kopenhagen last season 2nd, season before 1st..This season currently 3rd, Midtjylland is too far on top but 2nd place fight is realistic. They are not doing best in Europa league but have chance for next round. There are no missing worries..
This is mostly pick on quality and weakness of Silkeborg. Club promoted from 2nd league would get there back soon. After 14 rounds they still didnt win in Superliga. Two players are out, not big missing problems but also no quality, specially not for FC Copenhagen. Also, there are problems in club, inside problems and also few players would be sacked.

​Currently, there is not much positive to say about Silkeborg.Klub not yet won, and lately not jack some related resaults. last week that the stock market fallout is a likely scenario, and to act accordingly by cutting team club. When this happens, is not yet known, but all things being equal, it is likely that such a statement gives some problems in relation to the team that is already bursting with confidence. And now it is so that FC Copenhagen with names like Nicolai Jorgensen and Andreas Cornelius waited. Silkeborg is currently only Ari Mohr Jonsson listed injuries.​

FC København (4-4-2):

Høgli – ‘Zanka’ – Antonsson – Bengtsson
Amankwaa – Amartey – Delaney – Kacaniklic
Jørgensen – Cornelius

Silkeborg IF (3-4-3):
Rasmussen – Flinta – Gammelby
Kiilerich – Køhlert – Bech – Ritter

Agger – Runsewe​
​22.11.  Olimpo Bahia Blanca – Rosario Central  -0,25 Olimpo @ 1,775 Pinnacle 5/10  1-13 pts between them

Rosario won this night in cup semifinal and 4 days after league game main game of season – cup finale, and will rest all key players..

We had VIP double against Olimpo (on River) but they impress, played draw on Monumental (against strongest River which didnt wanna rest players and with 10 man last 15 min). Defender Parnisari (9/0) is suspended

Champagne; Sills, Furios, Moiraghi y Villanueva; Martinez, Blanco, Gil y Mansilla; D. Blanco y Olivares.

La Final de la Copa 2013/2014 será el 26 de noviembre en San Juan

Rosario comfirmed totally reserves team, youngsters  with few debutants

Con este panorama, un probable equipo para jugar mañana ante los bahienses formaría co (0/0)n Manuel García (0/0) Lucas Lazo (0/0) o Víctor Salazar (0/0), Berra (12/0) o Fernando Piñero (0/0), Lucas Acevedo (8/1) y Elías Gómez (2/0); Walter Montoya (5/0), Maximiliano González (0/0), Lazo (0/0( o Franco Cervi (1/0) y Jonás Aguirre (14/0); Antonio Medina (10/1)y Javier Correa (1/0)

22.11. Serie B, Joinville – Luverdense -1,25 Joinville 1,88 Ibc 5/10  1-1 -5 

Two round till end Joinville leading table with just one point more than Ponte Preta and cannot now fail. Home they are almost perfect, 14-3-1, and recived just 8 goals (32:8 in 18 home runds). After 7 win in a row they lost away (4th Boa). Probably reason was missing of standard defenders but now they have important players back and no missing woes: Bruno Aguiar(df 32/2) Edson Ratinho (df 28/1) e Everton (df 24/1) and midfielder Marcelo Costa (30/5) are back

Luverdense almost sure league status, they are weak away (scored just 10 away goals). They are without: Misael (att 28/9, topscorer) e Lê (att 17/1), e do zagueiro Renato (df 31/0), Léo (att 25/4)

22.11. Segunda, Tenerife – Mallorca +0,25 Mallorca @ 2,11 Asia 5/10   0-0

Tenerife 14 pts, Mallorca 18 (16 pts in last 6 rounds). Mallora in great form, 5-1-0. They dont have serious problems, out is just suspended midfielder Joao Victor (12/1)

Tenerife playing worm-cold, first lost 3 games, than won two and than draw and loss. For this game they have problems. They usually not scoring much (13 goals in 13 rounds) and fot this game suspended two strikers, in form topscorer Ifrán (6/4) and Dávila (att 8/1). midfielder Aitor Sanz (12/1) is injured and Unai Albizua (df 9/0) is doubtfull. But except attacking problems, there are problems on goal. First goalkeeper Roberto Gutierrez (8 caps) is injured. The young Carlos Abad-Hernández, which debuted last weekend, will play against Real Mallorca, because the entity does not have the other goalkeeper template, Jacobo Sanz, with which the club has a tentative agreement for decoupling. Also young goalie Nauzet Garcia injured

Mallorca in form, scoring much (same as two top teams – most of all) and Tenerife without attacking power and also without serious goalkeeper..

Mallorca won them both times lastyear

Internacional – Atl Mineiro  1

Atl Mineiro will put reserves to rest key players for cup finale

Atletico-MG finished preparing to face Inter in tactical training. The technical Levir Culpi guided fieldwork with the reserve team and will save the owners for the third time in four rounds at the Brazilian due to the end of the Brazil Cup.

The reserves made the training that will be on the field at the Beira Rio, Saturday at 19:30 (GMT): Victor; Alex Silva, Tiago, Pedro Botelho and Edcarlos; Pierre, Joshua, Eduardo and Daniel; Dodo and Marion. In the activity, the traditional rachão gave way to a small tactical work in the field. The novelty was the presence of half Daniel in midfield throughout the work. Paulinho, who was alternating with him in public on Thursday, trained on another team.

Flamengo – Criciuma  1

Criciuma relase 13 players and some youngsters will get chance. Flamengo also will rotate squad – players at the end of contract will get chance to impress and get new cintract..​

Anyway, Flamengo should win this

this week VIP

Posted by CaStRoF, November 19th, 2014 | Comments Off

here are last week VIP picks + Infos . for VIP details on mail castrof.eu@gmail.com


double, River 1,4 + Alajuelense  1,33 @  1,86 bet365 5/10


Friendly, Morocoo – Zimbabwe  2-1 
Morocco good team with good players and famous names http://pokit.org/get/?1739b96a460e0707a46857116c399e42.jpg
Zimbabwe usually weaker than Morocco, mostly local league players with few from SAR league but today will use u23 players

Zimbabwe, who are now looking forward to qualifying for All-Africa Games and the 2016 Sydney Olympic Games, will play their under-23 team for the encounter, while Morocco are expected to field the strongest possible line-up on the day.

River 1,4 + Alajuelense  1,33 @  1,86 bet365  5/10 
​Argentina, River Plate – Olimpo Bahia Blanca  1 @ 1,4   1-1 
Huge quality difference. River have main game for few days (semifinal sudamericana with biggiest rival Boca) and coach told to put reserves. Now he change his mind (dont wanna risk championship) and will use best players (only Guttierez which still didnt arrive from International team). River best attack and best defence in league 
Olimpo finaly won (only team weaker than them). They scored just 10 goals, away without win, just two goals scored (2:12) and they cannot do nothing against strongest River line up
​Great value in Sbo -1 River @ 1,75​

River is nothing saved

Before facing Boca in the Copa Sudamericana, Gallardo team needs to return to winning ways against Olimpo. And unlike his rivals Boca, will present the local tournament a team with the best that is available.

River Plate: Marcelo Barovero; Gabriel Mercado, Jonatan Maidana, Germán Pezzella y Ramiro Funes Mori o Leonel Vangioni; Augusto Solari, Guido Rodríguez o Leonardo Ponzio y Ariel Rojas; Leonardo Pisculichi o Sebastián Driussi; Rodrigo Mora y Lucas Boyé. DT: Marcelo Gallardo.
Olimpo: Nereo Champgne; Ezequiel Parnisari, Iván Furios, Néstor Moiraghi y Juan Ignacio Sills; Joinathan Blanco, Adrián Martínez, Leonardo Gil y Juan Cobo; Orlando Gaona Lugo o Joaquín Susvielles o Jacobo Mansilla y Mauricio Cuero. DT: Walter Perazzo.​
​Costa Rica » Primera Division » Alajuelense – Limon 1 @ 1,33  2-1
Huge quality difference. Alajuelense best team in league, 4 pts than Herediano and could have much more but manny games they rested key players, rotate squad for Champions League. Always strong at home- 
José Andrés Salvatierra (0/0) i Allen Guevara (mf 9/2), Elias Palma (0/0) and  Jonathan McDonald (att 12/3) are long term missings
Good news are: Ariel Rodriguez (mf 13/2), Kenner Gutierrez (df 16/0) and  Juan Gabriel Guzman (mf 13/0) should all be back after injury, Kevin Sancho (mf 13/0) is back after suspension, while are tre players back after International duty for Costa Rica, goalkeeper Pemberton (14 caps), Sequeira (mf 2/1) and Venegas (att 12/2). 
Limon weak, specially weak away. Lost last tre games. I dont have missing info for them but pick based on hosts

15.11. Shrewsbury – Mansfield  -1 Shrewsbury @ 2,04 Ibc 5/10  2-0

Shewsbury on 3rd place with impresive winning strike (5 in a row – at begining not so good because they bring 16 new players but now better and better). They destroyed direct promotion oponent Bury 5-0 (and show their will to go back quickly to League One). They are 7-1-0 at home (19:3). In fa cup they draw away (2-2) with League One Walsall  and in League cup lost 1-2 vs big Chelsea. Out is suspended Ryan Woods (mf 16/0). Defender Jermaine Grandison (12/1) is back after suspend, Jack Grimmer (df 4/0) is available after missing their FA Cup and first gk Jayson Leutwiler (16 caps) is back in training. 
Mansfield just one away win. They didnt won last 7 games. Luke Waterfall is in line for a belated debut after joining from Scunthorpe before last week’s FA Cup tie with Concord Rangers was postponed. But they have injury problems:
Manager Paul Cox is still without defenders Ritchie Sutton (df 15/0), John Dempster (df 4/0) and Luke Jones (0 caps), although Ryan Tafazolli (df 11/1) could return from a hamstring injury.
Forward Vadaine Oliver (att 2/0) may also recover from a foot problem, but Ollie Palmer (att 13/1) and Chris Clements (mf 9/1) face fitness battles and Matt Rhead (att 10/2) and Simon Heslop (mf 11/1) stay sidelined.

15.11. Fluminense – Botafogo  -0,75 Flu @ 2,07 Ibc  5/10   1-0

Was thinkin glast two days to take this or not. Usually would take without thinking, but city derby, game on Maracana which is home from both and in some crazy scenarion people can think Flu will go to save Botafogo not to relegate – but Flu also need points more than anything and no matter they could loose 2nd biggiest derby next year(s) and i belive in fair game and on that is based my pick
Flu on 6th position but just 3 pts less than 4 clubs which all fight for g4. After 4 winning games in a row they lost last game away vs Coritiba. Now need back winning, there are 5 rounds and hard battle. Elivelton (rb 24/1) and Bruno (df 29/0) are out. 
squad should be 
Diego Cavalieri; Jean, Marlon, Guilherme Mattis e Chiquinho; Valencia, Edson, Wagner e Conca; Walter (Rafael Sobis) e Fred
Botafogo big club in problems. They are in red zone and not in good form (ok they won Fla when Fla rested key players – was between two cup semifinal games). For this game they have big problems, several key players out: Ramírez (mf 16/1), Airton (mf 22/0), Gabriel (mf 30/0), Rodrigo Souto (mf 13/0), Wallyson (att 25/4, 3rd scorer) a Rogério (att 17/2),  Junior Cesar (df 28/0) and Daniel (mf 13/5, 2nd scorer). Carlos Alberto (mf 12/0), Jobson (att 6/0),  and Murilo (mf 6/0) did not trained and they are questionable. André Bahía (df 20/1) was out and now he fast recover but question is how much is ready, Their topscorer Zeballos (28/6) suprising not in first 11 last few games (this one too). 

The quantity prevented, for example, the manager a collective commanded without having an increase of the basic categories or improvised goalkeepers in line. So what we saw was a technical activity, with no division between owners and reservations. Among the players who worked, striker Maikon, for example, is not enrolled in the Brazilian Championship. The midfielder Renan Lemos has not yet acted on this year because of knee surgery. The steering wheel Marcelo Mattos played only one match this Brasileirão because of a groin injury and players like defender Igor Lucas Rabello and Zen wheel has not yet played a match at Alvinegro under the command of Vagner Mancini

17.11. Arsenal S – Boca Jun  ah0 Arsenal @ 1,81 Ibc 5/10 void  1-1

(seems 1,85 in 188 but cannot open)
Last week we had Vip against Boca (on San Lorenzo) when boca changed 11 players (because Sudamericana). Now they have 4 days later copa Sudamerica semi final game with biggiest rival River Plate and will change (rest) 9 players from strongest squad so big chance for Arsenal..
Arsenal stong at home (5-3-0). I dont see any speciall missing in their team.

15.11. League One, Oldham – Crawley  -0,75 Oldham @ 1,86 Sbo 5/10    1-1

Last round Oldham finaly lost. It was against league leader Bristol City (1-0 away). They make 13 games before it without loosing game. After that they won Leyton Orient in FA cup. 
Oldham without long term injured Elokobi  (df 9/0). Young midfielder Winchester (16/0) called first time for N. Ireland NT but will come back for this game. 
Crawley not in good form. For this game Crawley Town could have seven out for Oldham Athletic game
Lanre Oyebanjo (df 13/0), Ryan Dickson (mf 8/0) and Gavin Tomlin (att 9/0) limped off during Tuesday night’s disappointing Johnstone’s Paint Trophy defeat to Gillingham, adding to an injury list that already included skipper Josh Simpson (hamstring, mf 5/0), Marvin Elliott (groin, mf 6/3, 2nd scorer) and Matt Harrold (thigh, att 11/1).
And with top-scorer Izale McLeod (att 16/6) suspended for the trip to the Latics, the Reds could be left with only Charles Banya and Lewis Young as makeshift options up front.
That are huge missings for this smeall squad

Turkish national team manager Fatih Terim has revealed that he is facing an injury crisis ahead of the international friendly against Brazil on Wednesday 12 November.

“We are without eight players going into the game,” Terim said.

“Gökhan Gönül looks unlikely to play, Semih Kaya and Mustafa Pektemek are out, Mevlüt Erdinç isn’t ready, Töre isn’t going to play, Burak Yılmaz has the flu, Volkan Demirel has a back problem and Volkan Babacan has a problem with his finger.

“So as you can see we have a lot of missing players.

“This is no excuse however, we still need to perform and be professional, we need players who really care about the national team.”

The Turkish national team take on Brazil on their 249. international friendly, the game will be played at the Şükrü Saracoğlu stadium.

Terim is expected to field an experimental side against Brazil due to the extensive injury list.
