Copa argentina, Racing Club – Patronato x2 @ 2,1 betclic

Racing Club is Primera Division club (2-2-2) and they are big bookie favorite for this game against Primera B club patronato de la juventud Catolica. patronato is mid table league club which dont have missing worries. Also, game will play on north Argentina, in Salta (Patronato have less to travel than Racing).

Racing with reserves on this game
Alfio Basile, who will not travel to Salta for Cup shock Argentina, divided his boys into two groups. Those who travel to Salta on one side and the rest by another. In practice, the most important fact to know that Patricio Toranzo was eventually run in Buenos Aires because it is still sore right ankle, the result of a blow.
Squad: De Olivera (0/0) y Dobler (0/0); Lluy (4/0), Saveljich (0/0), Silva (0/0), Cáceres (10/0), Sainz (1/0), García (0/0) y Licht (19/0); Zuculini (3/0), Yacob (19/1) y Aued (8/0); Fariña (1/0), Vietto (1/0) y Sarmiento (4/0); Viola (21/2), Colombini (0/0) y Caballero (0/0).

So, there are not in group main players: first gk Saja (25/0, all games), defenders Martinez (22/0), Pillud (21/0), Cahais (23/1) – so almost all defensive line, than midfielders Moreno (19/3), castro (18/5), Pelletieri (23/0) and Toranzo (21/0) – so whole midfield line and first chioice attackers Gutierrez (20/8) and Hauche (24/3).

I belive Petronate can make some resault here no matter they are league above. They are, but not above this players which will play against them today and which never played together. Dont know much about their strenght but this is ‘must try bet’ for me

3for3 game

Slavia – Levski 2 @ 1,5

Slavia Injury: Yordan Yurukov (mf 16/2) Doubtful: Akioshi (mf 2/0)

LevskiSuspended: Junior (att 3/1) Back: Yovov (mf 15/4), Tasevski (mf 15/3), Calvo (mf 11/) and Da Silva (att 2/1)

Slavia and Levski will present us the oldest Sofia derby in Bulgaria. Slavia was on good run, but last round lost from 10 men Litex away from home, showing nothing special.. Slavia lost their best creative player Galin Ivanov – sold to Litex, also Junior – sold to Levski. For this game they will also miss another 2 regulars as Yurukov is injured and Sandaski is suspended. Levski is playing more than comfortable against Slavia, recording 7-3-0 in their last 10 matches here. We cant speak about home advantage as Slavia will have round 100 fans, while Levski will have huge support from the crowd. Guests will miss only Serginho Greene and suspended Slavia ex-player Junior. Levski will have 4 regulars back in the squad and probably all of them will be starters – Yovov and Ramos are back after suspessions, while Tasevski and Toni Calvo are fully fit after light injury problems. Levski will take the full pack of points here

CARDIFF CITY VS. COVENTRY CITY

Cardiff 8th, 58 pts, form 1-2-3

Coventry 22nd. 31 pts, form 1-3-2

Cardiff manager Malky Mackay has hinted Rudy Gestede (att 20/2) could return. Slovakian midfielder Filip Kiss (mf 24/1) missed the Burnley clash with illness but should be back in the squad alongside Darcy Blake. Stephen McPhail (mf 11/0) made a five-minute substitute appearance in the weekend stalemate after returning from Sjogren’s Syndrome and he will be hoping for a place in the squad once again. Craig Conway (mf 29/3) will hope to challenge loanee Liam Lawrence (mf 4/0) for a starting berth after impressing during his 27-minute spell against the Clarets. David Bell (mf 26/0), Hermann Hreidarsson (df 2/0), Richard Wood (df 17/1). McDonald (att 15/2) not fit enough

Blackpool v Leicester

Blackpool 7th, 59 pts, form 2-1-2

Leicester13th, 51 pts, form 2-0-3

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway is set to have a full squad to choose from when he looks to break his duck against former club Leicester. Leicester midfielder Paul Gallagher (att 24/7) is a major doubt for the Foxes trip to Blackpool. Manager Nigel Pearson has indicated Neil Danns (mf 27/5) is also a doubt and will be assessed before the game. Midfielder Andy King (heel, mf 26/4) is back in training but is around two weeks away from being fit enough to play again.

Slovenia ND Gorica – Nafta 1 @ 1,5

Gorica same squad as before, they are good and must keep third position. Nafta much weaker than first half of season, important players left, no quality

 CROATIA

RNK Split – Karlovac

Split is big favorite, they should be it but dont know what’s wrong with them. They have quality but. Karlovac loose imporant players, they bring new, loose on quality and Split in normal circumstances should won easy this 3-4:0 but i will not bet this on this odds and Split’s form

Sibenik – Lokomotiva Zagreb

lokomotiva playing great, they are stronger than before, bring some good players from Dinamo and really playing good. Last game Zagreb shout them just once. I would prefer bet on them but i will not this time, they are coming on south, Sibenik need points and Lokomotiva is maybe youngest team (i will not look now stats, but very young and talented squad) and there must be oscilattions. no bet this time

Zadar – Varazdin 1 @ 1,8 expekt (if they not fix 😉 )

Odds raisin on Zadar unbelivebly. From 1,33 to 1,73 (expekt 1,8). Maybe people means it will be fixed on away, h2h is suspicious for all (i can say they was cooperating) http://www.betexplorer.com/soccer/croatia/croatian-1st-league-2011-2012/nextmatch.php?matchid=6781697 but imo, there cant be cooperating any more because Varteks change people in club. Also, Zadar has some important miss Mršić, Con, Terkeš, Bilen, Ježina (but only Mrsic played last game when is suspended). Varazdin in big financial problems, new president come too late and there is no chance for them. Mrmić, Aračić, Rašić out today. They played very strange (i would say suspicious games), first leadind 2-1 vs Zagreb until 90 minute and loose 2-3 and in last one lead vs Split until 92 minute and it finished 2-2. Now unrealistic odds (Zadar always was home team and i belive they cannot relegate) http://www.oddsportal.com/soccer/croatia/1-hnl-2011-2012/zadar-varazdin-808502/ Now is big value on home side and Varteks (i always said Varteks, probably new chairman will give name back) can win only if they fix game

Zaprešić – Cibalia

In normal circumstances i would bet on away win but i will not after embarresing Bibalia loose last game vs Varteks. Hiosts without missings, Cibalia out: Nedostaju: Rugašević, Jonjić, Vitaić, Koledić

Rijeka – Hajduk Split

Rijeka het financial Injection (Volpi, Pro Recco owner buy them) and now it all looks better. Two days ago come Ivan Bosnjak, great striker but i dont know his form now. But, if we looking future, there will be some great projects and Rijeka will be better. Hajduk also not impresive, there are players with big saleries which dont deserve that and i dont belive in that team. If you want to bet on this, you can try draw. for me, no bet

Dinamo – Slaven Belupo over 2,5 @ 1,92 188bet

Dinamo won hajduk in big derby, wasnt played impresive and there is question how can Cacic motivate players after 13 points leading. There was some fioght between Igor Biscan and coach and Biscan is removed from team. Joe Šimunić is also out. Slaven showed some good games and they are greath 3rd but no much chance for them in this game. They are clasicall home team and today without gk Rodic and defender Grgic. Maybe is over best option for this game, they also bring two great strikers before last game (i wrote on site to bet becose them vs Osijek), Bojan Vrucina and Davor Vugrinec (Vuga need 2 more goals for record on domestic league best scorer ever)

Napoli with strong line up:
Morgan De Sanctis, Campagnaro, Cannavaro, Aronica, Maggio, Gargano, Inler, Zuniga, Hamsik, Lavezzi, Cavani

Siena loose last game home against Novara and now it can be dangerous. Coach (exept injuries) will give rest to some players, probbaly will not play (or start in first 11): Pegolo (gk 13/0) and Brkic (gk 15/0) – it means probably on gk Farelli (for first time this season, didnt have much games before also), Rossettini (df 24/1), Roberto Vitiello (df 26/1), Del Grosso(df 25/2), Brienza (mf 27/2), Vergassola (mf 19/1)

Hungary cup

MTK Budapest – Videoton  2 @ 2,0 bwin

MTK are cruising in Division 2 West, a very promising young team, but the squad besides being very young it is also very shallow: the same 15-16 players have played through the whole season and did very well to get this far.
Key midfielder Zsidai is injured, the manager hopes to be able to put him on the bench. Nikhazi, Makura, Pal, Balajti all quality players are also unavailable. Starting eleven already announced:
Groppioni – Wolfe, Kálnoki Kis, Szekeres, Vadnai – Vukmir, Kanta, Ladányi – Könyves, Tischler, Frank
