VIP 13.8.

Slovenia Supercup, Gorica – Maribor  -0,5 Maribor @ 1,86 Sbo 3/10   1-4 
 
Maribor started good, won all 3 league games and eliminated Maccabi Tel Aviv in Champions league (before that eliminated Zrinjski). In last league game Maribor won Gorica 2-1. Maribor without Ibrahimi (1/0, last season 4/2) and Arghus (df 2/0, ls 20/2). Maribor is only title candidate (same like last few seasons when they won title). They won supercup last two seasons
 
Gorica with poor pre season and even worse league start, eliminated from Europa league (Molde) and lost all 4 league games. I belive reason is departures of main players, manny manny palyers left: 
 
Welle N’diaye (Maribor, att 15/2), Francesco Finocchio (mf 14/2, Pisa), Alessandro Favalli (df 24/0, Cremonese), Robi Jakovljevic (4/0, Radomlje), Alex Cordaz (gk 35/0, Parma, end of loan), Daniele Bazzoffia (att 29/5, Parma, end of loan), Abel Gigli (df 17/0, Parma, end of loan), Massimo Coda (att 33/18, Parma, end of loan), Gianluca Lapadula (att 28/11, Parma, end of loan), Luca Berardocco (mf 21/0, Parma, end of loan), Gianvito Misura (att 30/8, Parma, end of loan), Alessandro Favalli (df 24/0, Parma, end of loan), Bruno Leonardo Vicente (mf 21/0, Parma, end of loan), Tomas Danilievicius (attt 11/1, Parma, end of loan), Ivan Cacchioli (gk 1/0, Parma, end of loan), Gonzalo Mastriani (att 9/1, Parma, end of loan), Yves Benoit Bationo (mf 3/0, Parma, end of loan), Filippo Boniperti (att 13/4, Parma, end of loan)

Bulgaria supercup, Ludogorets – Botev Plovdiv    3-1 

i would say home win and -1ah

Neutral ground

Ludogorets without main leaving and boost squad with Angulo (standard defender in Granada, 34/0) and best player from Botev Andrianantenaina (mf 35/10). Also now they bring one more Botev player, Younes Hamza (att 13/5)

Botev lost their sponsor and much weaker than last season, manny importan players left and some youngsters come. Club left key player and topscorer Andrianantenaina (mf 35/10 – to Ludogorets), Minev (df 27/0), Sprockel (df 30/0), Džinic (df 10/0), Luchin (df 12/1), Dyakov (mf 11/0), Grncharov (df 19/1), Galchev (df 17/1), Kostov (att 13/0), Nedelev (mf 11/5), Domovchiyski (mf 30/2), Domovchiyski (12/1), Kortzorg (mf 33/9), Younes Hamza (att 13/5 – Ludogorets) and Pedro (att 23/3)

St. Johnstone – Celtic  -1ah Celtic @ 1,87 BetVictor 5/10    0-3
 
St Johanstone won first game Ross County 2-1 while Celtic didnt play first round. Both played in Europe, St Johanstone relegated from Slovakian Spartak Trnava while Celtic lost against Polish side Legia but Celtic will play next round of Champions league (Maribor) because player which should play for legia played. Hosts will play this game 3rd game in 6 days while Celtic will play 2nd game in 7 days so should have freshen legs
 
Celtic weaker for first goalkeeper Forster and striker Samaras (att 20/7) from last season so nothins special, they are again only title candidate. Out are Charlie Mulgrew (mf 28/6) and Scott Brown (mf 38/2)
 
St Johanstone without signings (brin some Adam Morgan which didnt played for Yeovil but with main leavings (will put stats from starters). Key player May (37 goals last season, went two days ago), Hasselbaink (att 30/5), Cregg (mf 20/0) Clancy, Iwelumo, Gray, Steeves, Clark, Dunne, Davies 
 
“Stevie’s departure is a blow. Anybody who loses their top striker with 27 goals for us last season will be difficult to replace but the season before we lost 28 goals from midfield, three players left and we replaced them with Stevie.
​Last season 3 times Celtic won and last game (when was not important) draw 3-3 (celtic get two goals in last 6 minutes. I dont see now chance for Hosts when when lost main player (s) and didnt bring any​
