Austria info

Austria, 1. liga, Mattersburg – St. Polten  4-0 
 
Mattersburg started good in this season. No injury problems. 
St Polten also startzed good but also playing Europa league where they eliminate Botev and lost 1-0 vs PSV. Now will have 2nd game at home for just 3 days and players must be tired from this hard scedule. There is no big roster. Shame there are no news about posible line up but i belive coach must rotate squad, maybe even put reserves because they have nice chance in Europe. If later come squad news i will update info (specially if they decide to put reserves)

friday bet

Arsenal Vs Manchester City (Beijing)

The two EPL rivals will meet each other but this time this is out of Europe when they will have a clash in PreSeason friendlies in Beijing, China.

City vs Arsenal friendly

Arsenal and Manchester City will have a clash before they meet up in the Premier league. They will face each other in a friendly match Friday in China. Although they will have most of their stars on holidays, no doubt these two will have hard fight being rivals in similar league. They will be noticed by most of the Football fans all around the world when they meet somewhere outside their region.

After being able to score only in 1 match in their friendly season, City will look for a better performance against Arsenal who recently won 2-1 against Malaysia XI.

Manchester city not only has pressure to win the game as the league winners but they also would look for victory to prevail their 1-0 loss in their latest meetup back in last season.

Probable Line Up

Manchester City: Costel Pantilimon, Kolo Toure, Vincent Kompany, Aleksandar Kolarov, Pablo Zabaleta, Lopes, Adam Johnson, Razak, Toure, Tevez, Aguero

Arsenal: Vito Mannone, Thomas Vermaelen, Johan Djourou, Ignasi Miquel, Andre Santos, Alex Song,Francis Coquelin, Mikel Arteta, Chukwuemeka Aneke, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Theo Walcott

Croatia » 1. HNL » Rijeka – Zadar 1 @ 1,7

It could be called pick of the day. Abouth Zadar i wrote in preview for first round. Financial problems kick them and they couldnt bring players. Good for them is that team is almost same but you must every season strenght your team if you want survive. They are tipical home team and with this team and this style i give them no chance in Rijeka. Specially if they play like first round whern they played home with weak osijek (which was also tired from europe) and they didnt make to osijek any serious chance. osijek come and played 0-0, osijek keeper Vargic (coach want put young debutant on goal because Vargic’s mistakes in euro game but he put them again) didnt even need to come, he was withouth job on goal. Poor Zadar, poor osijek but i expected more from Zadar because they was always home team. For this game new player Jolic can debut.

Rijeka is new club. When i said new i mean they changes 80 % of team. But it is possitive stuff. Last season in half of season Gabrielle Volpi come in club. It’s very rich Italian who owned Pro Recco and Primorje (in waterpolo) and lot other. He decide to make Nk Rijeka European club so he bring lot new, quality players (yes, i forgot to mention that he also owns Spezia, Italian football club which he bring in Serie B and probably will now invest lot there to bring them in Serie A / also forgot to said few days ago he quit with waterpolo but that’s not importnat now). So, new players are: Lukasz Mierzejewski, Dario Knežević (ex international player), Mato Neretljak (great defender, Hajduk didnt pay his saleries and he come in Ri), Josip Brezovec (great midfielder), Jurica Vranješ (ex international player), Drago Gabrić (great midfielder, Hajduk didnt pay his saleries and he come in Ri), Leon Benko (great winger/striker), Luka Marić (good defender from Istra), Ivor Weitzer (back from loan), Ivan Mance (Istra’s first gk), Diego Vannucci (they said he is good player from Italy) and Andrea Mutombo (perspective Nigerian from Volpi’s camp in Nigery)
players leave club: Igor Čagalj, Dino Drpić, Alen Dedić, Valentino Stepčić, Andro Švrljuga, Mario Tadejević, Ivan Bošnjak, Damir Čehič. Only Cagalj and Svrljuga was important

NK Rijeka (Vitez) 3:0, Sarajevo 0:1, GOŠK Gabela 2:0, Široki Brijeg 2:2 (9:8 poslije jedanaesteraca), Imotski 1:0, Široki Brijeg 3:2
Rijeka – Tom Tomsk 2:0, Rijeka – HIT Gorica 2:0, Rijeka – Sevastopolj 1:1, Rijeka – Gaz Metan Severin 1:2, Rijeka – Radomlje 5:1

In first round Rijeka loose vs another great club Split. They will need time for good game, manny players come, most of them didnt play together single game but as time go i expect resaults on first place and as time go more and more they will sure play deady football, that are good quality names. So maybe they will not play briliant but i expect home win. They are stronger this gae for great ofensive player Leon Benko (can play as striker but also as winger). Team is really good and they need just one more striker to bring, speaking with few strikers and soon we will know ne name. But now Benko comes in squad, here is yound perspective nigerian striker and Mujanovic, good midfielder from Slaven Belupo is comming..sure home win and on this odds worth a try on hendicep. ..was writing preview yesterday and today in two parts so forgot to mention that everybody wants see new Rijeka and expected to be big fan support in first home game..also didnt nmention Zadar has nobody who can score

Stromsgodset – Fredrikstad

Hosts are best team right now, specially good at home (7-1-0) and have tree important players back for this game: Nudu (df 13/0), Madsen (df 15/0) and Strand (mf 12/1).

Fredrikstad is better just than Stabaek. They are weak team, loose last tree games and poor away (specially will have problems on this artificial turf). This game they are without Dure (df 6/1), Valencia (mf 10/2) and Hussain (mf 12/3). Only good news for coach is that striker Halvorsen (15/2) is back

Kapfenberg – Horn

Kapfenberg relegate from 1st league and club left:  Wolf (first gk, 35/0), Tieber (att 3/0), Harrer (mf 16/0), Gregoritsch (mf 16/1), Taboga (df 20/0), Gerson (df 15/0), Sahanek (mf 11/0),  Lovin (mf 15/0) and hanek (df 7/1). Only good signing is Burgstaller from Sturm.  A Lustenau destroyed them 5-0 and Grgic get red card in that game. Also Sencar suspended from before.

Horn in new in league. They are stronger than last season.. for other Erste liga games you can remind here

Polten – First Vienna

St Polten was strong home team. Speiser (df 30/0),  Hofbauer (mf 29/5) and Becirovic (mf 23/0) left club. They brong few new players but cannot said much about them.

First Vienna much weaker than their opponents last season, they was also  worst away team of league. Kerschbaumer (mf 32/5), Nacho (11/0), Rathfuss (df 29/0), Toth (mf 25/2), Salvatore (df 32/0), Markovic (mf 23/7) and Tiffner (17/2) left club. New players are much weaker and i expect team to be weaker than last season

Austria Lustenau – Kapfenberg

Kapfenberg relegate from 1st league and club left:  Wolf (first gk, 35/0), Tieber (att 3/0), Harrer (mf 16/0), Gregoritsch (mf 16/1), Taboga (df 20/0), Gerson (df 15/0), Sahanek (mf 11/0),  Lovin (mf 15/0) and hanek (df 7/1). Only good signing is Burgstaller from Sturm. For Austria is suspended their best striker Boya

BW Linz – Hartberg

Hartberg played relegation playoff with regionalliga Grazer AK and stay in league. They bring some new faces but there is still (imo) no quality for some sure thinking abouth surviving.

Grodig – FC Lustenau

Lestenau had hard work to save themself last season, now i cannot see nothing better when they didnt bring nobody and some important players left club: Hinterseer (astt 15/3), Buchner (df 23/1), Freitag (mf 33/3), Mimm (df 35/3), Witteveen (att 21/7), Lebedev (df 16/0), Holzmann (mf 31/2)

Grodig buyed one of their best players, Witteveen (att 21/7) and he need to replace leaving two attrackers Parapatits (att 32/7) and Diego Viana (25/11). Lexa and few other players also come so we will se how will they funkcionate

Horn – Altach

It will be interesting to see new club Horn in league. They are stronger than last season but have hard opponents in first round.
