Cro, Rijeka- Slaven Belupo  1 @ 1,73

As i writing from beggining of season, Rijeka (with Split) is for me main candidate for 2nd place. Financial stabile club, they bring lot good players but diodnt have resaults on beggining. Of course, when you have lot new players, it need time. They are always good at home and in last round they will have lot fans, program for fans, coach Scoria will have 100th game for Rijeka..
Culina (15/1) is back after injury and Kreilach (mf 16/3) after suspendion while Knezevic (df 18/0) get red card.

Slaven is tipicly home team manny years. For this game coach Ferencina has mising problems, 7 players are out: Suspended are Grgić (df 17/1) i Geng (df 7/0) and injured Rak (mf 10/0), Batarelo (mf 12/1), Vugrinec (att 12/8, main player, topscorer, legend of cro football, league topscorer of all time), Kokalovic (df 16/0) and Gregurina (mf 14/1)

Big bet on Rijeka

Croatia, Lokomotiva Zagreb – Cibalia 2 @ 7,31 pinancle

Lokomotiva  vs   Cibalia

If we look quality, then bets on this should be on home team. They are most talented team, Dinamo II, playing good…

Cibalia loose some important players this year, now they have young team (main players Bartolovic and Vitaic older) and they are in dangerous zone. With all problems they are playing very well in domestic cup.

But i dont wanna bet on this game because lokomotiva is better team or because Cibalia can do something and they are doing well in cup – this pick on Cibalia i bet because of some other rerasons.

As you know, Lokomotiva is 2nd club of Dinamo. That knows all of you probably, that knows 4 million people in Croatia, that know even Uefa but there is not even one single paper that Mamic has something with them. He just sends Dinamo’s players on loan there. He also take their coach, lokomotiva play their games on Maksimir..Manny people dont like this, that’s one of reason why BBB dont like Mamic and dont wanna go to Dinamo’s games..

When new government come, main target of sport minister was to clear Cro football and remove Mamic. He is fighting but still there is nothing. He is telling every day he will do anything to remove main criminal, main mafia boss from football (mamic is main in football, owns two clubs, put his people in association, he decide which referees will be, even decide who will be President of National Football Association and National Team Coach).

As Minister, same is doing Uefa. They are talkning abouth criminal moves in our football, abouth hooliganism..And they give ultimatum..Few days ago Platini was in Zagreb and made sharply speach abouth all it…

All i wanna said, Mamic can do whatever he wants. Lokmotiva can won this because of their quality, and they can if Mamic wants that. But i belive after all this threats, specially last he cannot allow lokomotiva to finish on Europan place and come in Europa. Than he woild have two clubs in Europa, i belive they already investigate him and i belive Lokomotiva will start droping on table..

Also he buyed few days ago (for Dinamo, not for Lokomotiva) young talent, wounderking from Cibalia (16 years old) so Cibalia players finaly get their saleries..

Decide alone what is best, but i thing it worth to try bett on Cibalia. If you dont belive, imo is better not to bet than on home win with this odds..

saturday info

Zeljeznicar – Slavija

Zeljo wanted postponed game at last for day after, for sunday. Reason is some virus, maybe food poisoning. Bekrić, Antolović, Bogičević, Kvesić, Brković, Čolić, Svraka, Pehilj i Zolotić all poisoned. Also poisoned goalkeeper’s ccoach Adnan Gušo and team manader Rusmir Cviko.  Brković wont play for sure, other trained but they feew tired, exgausted

Split – Inter Zaprešic 1
Quality on home side. Inter is one of worst teams imo and Split big favorite here at home. Split is without liong ter injutred Krizanac. New missings are gk Zagorac but Vukovic is good replacement, he is good expirienced gk which was club’s captein. Also out are striker Belle (6/1) and radotic (df 6/0) but midfielder Pehar (4/1) is back. Inter without important Gulic (df 5/0), Celikovic (df 6/0) and Scrbec (mf 2/0). Mlinar (mf 5/0) is back. Home win

Zadar – Istra 1961 istra +0,5 @ 1,75
Istra has much more quality. Zadar won in last few seasong most of their points at home but this season they are one of worst teams, i belive they will relegate. Some missings on both sides but i cannot see Zadar’s win here. Istra is stabile club..

Lokomotiva – Dinamo Zagreb over 2,5
Lokomotiva is 2nd team of Dinamo, B team. Dinamo sold captein Badelj to HSV and they took Brozovic from Lokomotiva. Also club suspend Leko and Pokrivac..

Rijeka – Hajduk Split
derby. I am forsing Rijeka this season, they are now financial stabile club, they bring lot new players, exppirience and good palyers but they didnt showed much (yet). last game they loose 2-0, there was 2 penalties..I expect better resaults from them..
Hajduk as you probably know with wery young squad, most main players leave club in rpe season, now last one captein Vukusic leave to Pescara. He was their main striker. I expect manny oscilations this season for hajduk, i belive young teams can showe their talent but they cannot paly good continuously. i would better bet here on Rijeka but i am tired of forcing them. Maybe when they start showing something i start to bet on them..

Torino – Pescara x2 @ 1,95
Last season both was in serie B, pescara 1st, torino 2nd, both with 83 pts. True, Pescara loose two topscorers and coach Zdenek Zeman (team scored 90 goals) but they bring manny manny players and i dont get thsi odds. True, Torino was good at home but this odds attract me. No missing problems

Olympique Lyon – Valenciennes
Lyon sold their goalkeeper in last day of mercato just like defender Cissokho. Tree important players also out: Gourcuff, Cris and Lisandro Lopez
Valenciennes started veryx good, didnt even recive a goal. They have some long term injuries, just new one missing, striker Samassa (3/1) but two important midfielders comes back, Camara and Sanchez

Vitória Guimarães – Estoril
Estoril without striker Paulo and tree defenders: Thiago Gomes, Pedro and Steven Vitoria. Vitoria scored both goals forclub (df 2/2, last season 7 goals) so maybe this there is some chance for hosts. Maybe finaly they score goal

Anderlecht – Genk
Both played euro games this week but Anderlecht had two days more to rest. Both qualify for groups, Anderlecht in CL, Genk in EL. Anderlecht best team in country and specially good at home but Genk defeted them at home last, in playoffs april. But Genk today without tree standard defenders: Simaeys, Ngongca and Tshimanga + defender Joeneleit and striker Masika. Hosts without important missings

FC Admira – WAC
Admira will mis league topscorer Hosiner (att 6/5)

Al Nasr – Al Hilal
Both are from same city, Riyadh. Al Hilal is much better and richer club. Form is not perfect but they should won this . They won in last 5 meetings.

Lausanne vs Grasshopper Zurich

Lausanne out: Sebastien Meoli(r)(def), Michel Avanzini(sp)(mid), Anthony Favre(r)(gk), Mehmed Begzadic(sp)(att)
Doubtful: Gabri Garcia(mid), Yannis Tafer(sp)(att), Signori Antonio(sp)(gk)

Grasshopper won tree in a row. Out are Shkelzen Gashi(r)(mid), Gianluca Hossmann(sp)(def), Mohamed Coulibaly(sp)(mid)

Kao ni dva Lari

 

Croatia, 1. HNL

Zadar Zadar-:-Osijek Osijek dnb 1 @ 1,55 / 1 @ 2,1

1. HNL, 20:00, Zadar – Osijek

DNB 1 @ 1,55 cannot drop imo

Osijek dont have players, they dont have quality, they dont have money, they dont have bench and dont have fans (it’s administration fault, people wants to go and look european games but they put most expencive tickets of all, bigger than hajduk, dinamo, slaven belupo) and there come 500-600 people. Only which club from my city has are problems. No money so there was no transfers. It’s ambelivable how club which play europe (loose in cup finale) go much weaker in that europe than buy (bring) somebody. only player who arrived is zulim (will not play first squad). I wached 2nd game in 1st ql round against poor amatuer team Santa Coloma from Andora (1st they won 1-0) and they won but they shouwed lot weakneses. Osijek is poor team and couldnt won convincigly even amatuers (which come without tree players which must stay at work). 6 players left club, Marko Babic (mf 18/3, ex international palyer, captein), Vidakovic (mf 9/3, important player, was injured), Bubalo, Gavric (df 21/1, important player), Lukacevic (mf 24/1, important player) and Maglica (att 23/7, topscorer and one of most perspective players, left in Hajduk). 2nd striker Ljubojevic (14/5) leave club before, 3rd striker šorša (29/4) is injured and probably will not be readdy for this game..So what expect when you never buy nobody, just wait to your young players showes few good games and than you sell him chief just to have for costs (for salaries of course there is no money). And same every year, just is difference that each year are playing younger and younger players..There is talent but there will not be resaults and they cannot play good in continuity. So Osijek in big problems. But that’s whole shitty league. That article was made after games with Andorian club, yesterday they played good with Sweden side Kalmar but they showed how they are young, unexpirienced and ‘green’. First, in 63rd minute Leskovic got 2nd yellow and they must play half hour with 10 polayers (which also can be plus for this pick) and than they recived 2 goals (and loose their hope in next round) in just two minutes. Coach still hope they can make miracle and maybe chance from first minute get youngsters like Dugandzic, Aleksic, Misic..They was better side but they won themselfs alone (once again). When goalkeeper Kardum left club last season (Austria W) they dont have goalkeeper. Kalmar yesterday shoot tree times on goal and scored 3 goals. You can look it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQBP2Wx1vaA&feature=player_embedded#! So on goal will debut young Mikulic (or even younger Malenica)

Zafar played good in friendlyes (Zadar – Kupres 5:1, Zadar – GOŠK 2:1, Zadar – Široki 1:2, Zadar – Jedinstvo Bihać 5:1 ). In Zadar is situation nothing better than in Osijek but they are always good at home and they have very hard scedule first rounds so this is game where they must try to find points (after first round coming to new Rijeka, than Hajduk coming, than new trip to Koprivnica to another home team, Slaven Belupo and than Dinamo coming – very hard scedule). They are, same as Osijek without money so they couldnt bring some names, Jolić, Brnadić i Conjar are new names (Jolic and Conjar are good players for HNL). jonjic leave club and Tomasov whic i dont count (was here quickly when argue with Hjaduk). So most important for them is they have almost same team. Two important players, Antonio Mrsic (son of Osijek’s coach) and Igor Prahic left in pre season in Zilina but when they make agree something happened and they stayed in Zadar. Another good news for them (but not for this game) is that very dangerous striker, Zelimir Terkes  (21 goals for zadar in season 07/08 in 29 games) will be fit soon after long injury.Two poor teams but my pick here is home win. Zadar was always home team, always most of their points won at home and Osijek will have one of longest trips.

osijek didnt won in Zadar from 2004 year

Zadar lineup: Gluić, Bilen, Prahić, Šimurina, Conjar, Banović, Jerbić, Begonja, Vasilj, Čurjurić, Ivančić
Osijek lineup: Mikulić, Ibriks, Smoje, Vrgoč, Aleksić, Lešković, Jugović, Petrović, Kvržić, Miličević, Perošević

Cibalia Cibalia-:-Slaven Belupo Belupo

This article i wrote before Slaven Belupo European game:
Slaven is tipiucal home team, most of their points win at home. They are, IMO, weaker than before. Ante Batarelo (Istra 1961), Nikola Rak (Luckko), Mateas Delic;are new players while tree important midfielders left club, Polak (26/2), Brezovec (26/5), Mujanovic (26/4). Alsdo Jaksinic; (mf 14/1). Best player Leon Benko (16/7) left before. They have injured Gregurina (mf 23/1), Glavice (mf 23/5) i Canadija (mf 12/0). Also, Bojan Vrucina come on half season as big star, first striker but he is injured from than and almost forgoten player. Also Maras suspended.  So if we want thing abouth squad, i cannot imagine how it will be, speciall midfield. Most dangerous will be 38 yeard old Davor Vugrinec (all time league topscorer). Busic (scoredc5 goals last season) shoved some skills and was scoring infirendlyes, but..

pre season friendlyes

Polet Cestica – Slaven Belupo 1:8, Polet SMNM – Slaven Belupo 0:3, Slaven Belupo – Borac Banja Luka 2:1, Lokomotiva – Slaven Belupo 0:2, Slaven Belupo – Sloboda Tuzla 1:0,Slaven Belupo – Koper 2:0, Slaven Belupo – Kaposvar 2:1

Thzey played that game and destroyed amatuers from North Ireland 6-0 (but they are not be relevant).
And what to say abouth Cibalia. They didnt bring no one, just players come back from loan ( Leopold Novak (Split), Josip Martinović (Mladost Cernik), Tomislav Maras (Mladost Antin), Stjepan Kvesić (Marsonia 1909), Petar Mišić (Dinamo), Marko Terzić (Marsonia 1909). Tree important players left, Culjak, Radotic and prgomet. Also important striker Kresinger and main midfielder Vitaic can leave if there will be some good offer. So they are weaker than last year

Cibalia will be without injured  Jurić, Matoš and Bartolovic is doubtful (it would beproblem).

Cibalia lineup: Matkovi, Gegić, Župarić, Lučić, Rugašević, Bartolović, Vitaić, Mazalović, Pavličić, Novak, Koledić
Slaven Belupo lineup: Rodić, Purić, Grgić, Bubnjić, Pilipović, Kokalović, Batarelo, Rak, Vugrinec, Delić, Bušić

Istra 1961 Istra 1961-:-Hajduk Hajduk Split no bet

Istra was one of refresh last season (loose just two games in 2nd half of season). They are stabile club with good financies (Russian is a president). They made solid team. Players like Belle, mance, Batarelo leave club and that was good players but they bring good players too, Linic, Jugovic, Blagojevic and Cagalj are great players for this elague and they are even stronger Imo than before. They are missing: Anđelković, Pamić, Havojić, Horvat, Bačelić-Grgić, Ljubović

Line up: Prskalo, Sušić, Čagalj, Stranatić, Milić, Prgomet, Jerković, Linić, Prelčec, Roce, Križman

Hajduk played in thursday Europa league game with Skonto. I will put what i wrote before that game:

I belive it’s weakest Hajduk i ever seen. No money, no president, no players, no wages, and first time that fans are not interested. I belive more in Split and Rijeka (ifor 2nd place in league) than in Hajduk. Hajduk was banned because of doubts to Sibenik and they couldnt play friendly games (they played few weak friendlyes but couldnt play as hajduk). They bring only young perspective striker Maglica from Osijek. Other players come back from loan. Club left manny important players: Neretljak (Rijeka), Gabrić (Rijeka), Tičinović (Nordsjaelland, Dan), Lendrić (Waregem, Bel), Buljat, Lima, Vejić, Andrić, James, Režić, Sačer (Tomasov left before). Also Sharbini (anas best player) will leave and will not candidate for this game. Only good news if we can spoke abouth something good in Hajduk is that striker Vukusic stayed (for now).Istra was one of refresh last season (loose just two games in 2nd half of season). They are stabile club with good financies (Russian is a president). They made solid team. Players like Belle, mance, Batarelo leave club and that was good players but they bring good players too, Linic, Jugovic, Blagojevic and Cagalj are great players for this elague and they are even stronger Imo than before.

Hajduk won that game, played good (suprised me) but Skonto is poor team (i belived they are little stronger). Oremuš and Ljubičić out

Linje up: Blažević, Vršajević, Maloča, Jonjić, Jozinović, Andrijašević, Radošević, Ozobić, Trebotić, Caktaš, Vukušić

1 HNL preview season 12/13

NK Zagreb Zagreb-:-Lokomotiva Lok. Zagreb  dnb 2 @ 2,63  / x2 @ 1,78

Zagreb is big unknown for public bbut also for them alone. They didnt bring quality palyers . New names are Ahmed Guilouzi (Gorica), Kobi Darrick Morris (Zagreb U17), Josip Krezo (Croatia Sesvete – loan). Club left Mate Maleš (Lokomotiva), Dinko Trebotić (Hajduk), Vedran Nikšić, Valentino Novosel , Josip Krezo. Pavlovic, Medic, Abdurahimi and Strok are good players but they cannot alone. Also zagreb will have problems when come injuries and suspensions, they dont have bench. Their ‘best player’ is their coach. Besek is good coach but still i belive more in young LokomotivaLokomotiva is better team IMO than Zagreb. Both clubs are from Zagreb, Lokomotiva is 2nd team of Dinamo and they play on Maksimir (Dinamo stadium). They are 3rd youngest team in whole Europe and of course they must have oscillations. Last season they finished 7th with point less than Zagreb. This season i expect better games because now they are 1 year older, with more expirience and that are all good players, ex young internacional players which has quality. Ademi and Puljic (important duo) are back in Dinamo but other players stayed. Also they bring defender Barbarić (expirience defender from Dinamo), Goran Zakarić (perspective young striker from dinamo / was on loan in siroki) and two perspective u19 internacional players, Filip Mrzljak and Marko Pajač. So now they have solid keeper )picak), very good defence with two expirience dinamo’s players like Barbaric and Mesaric with u19 int player komorski, good and very ofensive midfield with Brozovic, Antolic, Skvorc and great attackers from dinamo Kramaric and Situm (and new Zakaric)

Zagreb pre season: Zagreb – Rudar Velenje 1:2; Zagreb – Celje 0:1; Zagreb – Sibir 1:0; Zagreb – Siofok 2:1; Zagreb – Slask 1:1; Zagreb – Sevastopolj 0:5; Zagreb – Zavrč 4:2

lokomotiva pre season: VOŠK – Lokomotiva 0:7, Lokomotiva – U19 reprezentacija Hrvatske 2:0, Lokomotiva – Slaven Belupo 0:2, Lokomotiva – Volyn Lutsk 1:5, Lokomotiva – Slovan Bratislava 2:0, Rudeš – Lokomotiva 0:2

RNK Split Split-:-Rijeka Rijeka

Pre seasonDerby in first round. I belive more in this two clubs (if we look 2nd place) than in Hajduk. Split from begining (from their first season in 1st league) looks as serious club who buying clever and not spending much. This mercato they sold best striker Cop to Dinamo and no other important leaving. They bring good, fast, perspectiv striker Belle Henri from Istra, than Aljosa Vojnovic, another striker who had quality but now was in Iran and dindt look him last year. Also they bring very good radotic from Cibalia nad few other players. So they are stronger than before no matter Cop leave, they keep best players Križanc, Marčić, Vitaić and Vidić and bring new faces.
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

Dinamo Zagreb Dinamo-:-Inter-Zaprešić Zaprešić  -1eh / -1,5ah / -2ah 1,75-2,1

Inter is weak team without money,. Last season they almost relegate but this season is league 12 (next season league 10) and they can easy drop. They are not Dinamo’s club any more (before few years dinamo send their players to Inter, now is their club Lokomotiva). Midfielders Jancetic and Todorcev and striker Abilalilaj left club. Expirience keeper Cavlina come and that’s it if we look players which can make difference.Their tewam is very young (7th youngest in europe), 19 of 23 playewrs are under 23 years. There will be big osscilations i belive. They played very bad in frirndles, didnt even win, 0-3-3. Baku – Inter 1:1, WAC – Inter 1:1, Volyn – Inter 1:1, Aluminij – Inter 1:0, Inter – Kaposvar 2:3, Inter – Dukla Prag 1:2Dinamo played in wednesday in Bulgaria with their treble winner LUdogorec, played bad and aved themself in 90+ (1-1). As i said, they didnt play good and i dont think coach Cacic will rest players, he will go with best 11 to make convincigly win for 2nd game to get selfconfidence. And they will destroy Inter. Team is same, no one left (yet) and they are stronger for strker Cop from Split (+their two players, Ademi and Puljic back from loan, i belive Ademi have quality for first squad).

Hajduk was banned because of doubts to Sibenik and they couldnt play friendly games (they played few weak friendlyes but couldnt play as hajduk). They bring only young perspective striker Maglica from Osijek. Other players come back from loan. Club left manny important players: Neretljak (Rijeka), Gabrić (Rijeka), Tičinović (Nordsjaelland, Dan), Lendrić (Waregem, Bel), Buljat, Lima, Vejić, Andrić, James, Režić, Sačer (Tomasov left before). Also Sharbini (anas best player) will leave and will not candidate for this game. Only good news if we can spoke abouth something good in Hajduk is that striker Vukusic stayed (for now).Istra was one of refresh last season (loose just two games in 2nd half of season). They are stabile club with good financies (Russian is a president). They made solid team. Players like Belle, mance, Batarelo leave club and that was good players but they bring good players too, Linic, Jugovic, Blagojevic and Cagalj are great players for this elague and they are even stronger Imo than before.

Hajduk won that game, played good (suprised me) but Skonto is poor team (i belived they are little stronger)

friday bet

Libertad Asuncion – Tacuary (paraguay)

Several players who are playing the Libertadores will be released. While the inclement weather did not allow the technician to stop the team, there are tracks on it.

The alignment is likely to Rodrigo Munoz, Jorge Moreira, Pedro Sarabia, Ismael and Gustavo Benegas Mencia, Victor Ayala, Sergio Aquino, Jonathan Santana and Nestor Camacho, Rodolfo Gamarra and Cristian Menendez. They are also concentrated on the payroll of Bernardo Medina, Nery Bareiro, Fernando Acuña, Luciano Civelli, Marcos Melgarejo, Carlos Martinez, Mauro Caballero and Hugo link

Croatia, Inter – Hajduk  

Hajduk without: James (df 20/0)Maloča (df 14/1)Lima (df 23/0)Andrić (captein 20/2)Anas Sharbini (att 22/7)Ljubičić (mf 5/0)Tomaš (mf 3/0 but regular recently), Lendrić  (att 18/4)Pešić, Radošević (mf 6/0). Vukovic (att 18/2) doubtful

Inter has new coach and they hope it will positive affect on team after bad resaults. It’s very important relegation game for them (5 clubs relegate) and they must take adventage of playing home and adventage of Hajduk problems (which must put some juniors)

Netherlands Jupiler league

Last, 34th t+ round. There is no relegation this season 

Zwolle – won league and directly promoted
Den Bosch – was 2nd in 2nd period but

counting as first because Zwolle won first two periods
Sparta Rotterdam – won 3rd period
Helmond – won last, 4th period

Emmen Vs Sparta Rotterdam

Emmen loose last 11 games (29-1). They are poor team who would be relegate but lucky for them there are amatuers in 3rd league who didnt look for licence. They are wothout Marijn Sterk (df 18/1), Do Almedia (mf 7/0), Michel Poldervaart (mf 14/0), Kevin Gortz (df 29/0)
Sparta in playoff but wants keep 2nd place for easyer opponent. Marten de Roon (mf 28/3), Toine van Huizen (df 12/1), Jeroen Veldmate (df 32/7) and Sidney Schmeltz (att 22/2) will miss game.

Apeldoorn – Den Bosch

AGOVV loose last 4 games and won just 1 point in last8. Two midfielders out Mees Junior Siers (mf 29/0), Junior Livramento (mf 16/1)

Den Bosch is sure of play-off qualification because they won the second period, but coach Alfons Groenendijk still hopes to end up 5th in the final ranking. In that case they will qualify for the second play-off round directly and avoid the first knock-out round. To end up 5th Den Bosch needs a win and a mistake by the current number five Willem II, which visits Almere City FC.

Almere City FC vs Willem II

Almere City FC did not have much to play for during their past couple of games anymore. There’s nothing to win and nothing to lose anymore this season, which was called another ‘disappointed season’by many of the Almere players a couple of weeks ago. Almere does not seem to be highly motivated for their last match.

Willem II have a very good reason to be highly motivated for their last match in the regular season. The Tricolores want to secure the fifth spot on the table in order to qualify for the second round of the promotion relegation play-offs directly and thus avoid the first knock-out round. To stay fifth Willem II has to hold off FC Den Bosch, which is one point behind and will probably win at AGOVV on Friday.

SC Cambuur vs Telstar

Cambuur secured their play-off berth two weeks ago already, but the club hope to finish top five on the table to qualify for the second play-off round instead of the first. To reach fifth place they depend on the results of Willem II and FC Den Bosch. Cambuur will concentrate on a win themselves.

Cambuur out: Sandor van der Heide (mf 21/6), Marco van der Heide (mf 8/1), Mark de Vries (att 23/8)

Telstar has nothing to play for in another season without glory. The club will try to win three points, which will probably not lead to anything on the table. Sinking lower than 15th place is not possible so the question is whether Telstar can find some motivation to give Cambuur a fight in Friday.

Telstar out: Andrew Ornoch (att 7/1), Frank Korpershoek (mf 16/0), Stephan Veenboer (gk 11/0), Emre Bilgin (df 8/2)

Fortuna Sittard vs Go Ahead Eagles

Fortuna Sittard dropped from the 8th place to the 11th place on the ranking when they lost 4-3 against FC Eindhoven last week and their chances to qualify for the play-offs were reduced to almost none. Nevertheless Fortuna will try to win and hope for FC Dordrecht and MVV to lose points, in which case they could still grab the last play-off berth.

Go Ahead is ranked 9th, which is the last spot on the ranking that qualifies for the play-offs. In order to make sure they stay on this spot the Eagles should win, but Go Ahead may also qualify when they draw if MVV or FC Dordrecht make mistakes. They can’t afford a loss however, because in that case Fortuna will surpass. The risk of losing is pretty big, because last week Go Ahead played a lousy game to beat bottom ranked Emmen only 1-0. Fortuna was very unlucky against FC Eindhoven, but if they manage to maintain their level, they should be able to beat Go Ahead in Sittard.

GA Eagles out: Michal Janota (mf 10/1) and Sjoerd Overgoor (mf 26/4)

Helmond – Dordrecht

Helmond Sport has already qualified for the play-offs thanks to winning the fourth period. The club seems to be a little off track lately, losing 3-1 at home against Cambuur and drawing 1-1 against SC Veendam last week. Helmond cannot move up or down on the ranking so the club’s only concern is stay healthy facing the play-offs.

Helmond out: Juanito Sequiera (mf 23/2), Ayden Kuypers, Giorgos Niklitsiotis (att 16/1), Kelvin Bossman (att 16/2), Sebastian Stachnik (att 21/6)

FC Dordrecht is ranked 8th after 33 match rounds, which is enough to qualify for the play-offs, but the club has to win to secure that spot. A draw and even a loss could not enough. They will use whole effort to get the win.

Dordrecht out: Tom Beugelsdijk (df 26/2)

TOP Oss – Maastricht

Oss out of form, plazing for nothing and have lot plazers out. Also coach leaving after this game.
Oss out: Bert van Muyen (df 31/2), Joost Ebergen (df 1/0), Richard Arends (gk 25/0)- Also this are doubtful: Zdenko Kapralik, Roy de Ruiter, Kevin Huijsman, Roel van de Sande, Ryan van Dijk, Antonio Stankov, Christopher Bieber, Dammyano Grootfaam, Nelemans

MVV Maastricht still hope to qualify for the play-offs. The clubs is ranked tenth with only one match left, but FC Dordrecht and Go Ahead Eagles only have two points and one point more respectively. If MVV wins and one of the two other contenders lose, the southerners will conquer a play-off berth so there will surely be no lack of motivation.

MVV out Tom Daemen (mf 23/6), Sjors Verdellen (df 19/0)

FC Volendam vs FC Eindhoven

Not important game for Volendam but important for their topscorer Tuyp. Tuyp is league topscorer with 19 goals but just goal less has Maachi (Zwolle) and Quekel (Helmond). So i belive they will play ofensive in last game for Tuypand than that smels like over. koning (df 32/0) out

FC Eindhoven secured their third spot on the ranking last week and the club are still in contention to finish second. The club will probably want to fight for second spot to make this season’s history even brighter than it already is. Eindhoven never finished higher than fifth on the second league table before.
Eindhoven out Jelle de Bock (df 6/0), Josemar Makiavala (att 14/4), Ratco Vansimpsen (att 14/2), Theo Lucius (mf 25/3), Sjors Paridaans (df 22/2)
Doubtful Justin Tahapary (df 27/0)

France Ligue 2

FC Istres vs Arles-Avignon

Istres no missings
Arles out: Christophe Landrin (mf 13/0), Anthony Guise (mf 2/0), Fabien Laurenti (df 12/0), Luigi Pieroni (att 18/3), Deme N’diaye (att 19/1), Jordan Galtier (mf 3/0), Ludovic Butelle (gk 31/0)

Le Mans – Laval

Le Mans out: Brahim Bedbouda(df 10/2), Fredrik Stromstad (mf 13/0), Fousseyni Cissé (att 19/1)
Laval out: Ludovic Gamboa (mf 30/3), Lhadji Badiane (mf 11/2), Romain Ciaravino (mf 1/0), Gaetan Belaud (df 24/0)

FC Metz vs Angers SCO

Metz out: Kevin Diaz (mf 23/3), Joris Delle (gk 9/0), Samy Kehli (mf 8/0), Oumar N’Diaye (mf 2/0), Kalidou Koulibaly (df 22/0), Bruce Abdoulaye (df 21/0)
Angers out: Richard Soumah (mf 11/0), Karim Djellabi (df 26/0), Stevie Riga (df 6/0), Jeremy Henin (df 21/3)
Doubtful are: Maxime Rousseau (mf 13/0), Pierre-Etienne Lemaire (df 2/0), Bilal El Hamzaoui (mf 3/0)

Troyes vs Boulogne

Troyes out: Julien Outrebon (df 9/0), Mohamed Camara (att 11/3)
Boulogne out: Zargo Toure (df 32/0), Ovidy Karuru (att 26/6), Hugo Cianci (mf 18/1). Cedric Fabien (df 28/0) is doubtful

Clermont – Monaco

As i wrote manny times after season break, Monaco has biggiest ‘motivation’. Russian bussinesman buyed them and giving them 5000 euros per every win so now it’s almost posible to catch first league (and they was wery near 3rd). They have injured players but that are alld term, as i soke before, they brong manny palyers..
Clermon out: Jacques Salze (df 29/2), Jean-Francois Riviere (att 19/10), Damien Perrinelle (df 13/0), Cedric, Robin (df 0/0)
