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..

Europa league

 Mura – Arsenal Kijev preview  

Mura lost the first match in Kiev 3:0, but Uefa decided a result 3:0 for them, because Eric Matoukoua (Arsenal’s palyer which scored 3rd goal) couldnt play that game becouse of suspension..

..now Arsenal wanna convincigly won and come into next round. Rich chairman said he will give 100 000 dolars for each scored goal. Mura with full squad (very young), they are without Florescu, Khomin, Rafael, Lampi, Matoukou

Drakovič, Majer, Kramar, Cipot, E. Janža, Bohar, Maruško, Horvat, Kouter, Jelič, Fajić

Pankiv, Leandro, Simonenko, Gitchenko, Polevoy, Maksimov, Shakhov, Kovpak, Kobakhidze, Shatskikh, Mazilu

  Slaven Belupo v Athletic Bilbao preview  

The Croats missed a good chance to keep this tie alive as they were beaten 3-1 by what looked like Athletic’s second string side, so they clearly face an uphill task in the return leg.

Slaven Belupo finished last league campaign in 3rd place, just two points behind Hajduk Split and with the Croatian giants now much weaker than last term, it is team from Koprivnica that are now considered the best side in the top flight after Dinamo Zagreb.

Coach Roy Ferencina has managed to create a very homogenous unit that enjoyed a really good start to the season, with 6-0 and 4-2 Europa Leaguevictories over Portadown followed by two league wins.

The Pharmacists were beaten by Split at the weekend, and with Mario Gregurina still sidelined through injury, the hosts don’t have much to hope for before the clash with Athletic. Only good new is they will full their small stadium and Davor Vugrinec, key players (but in years now) is back for this game, he is league topscorer of all time.

Probable starting line-up (4-2-3-1): Rodic – Puric, Grgic, Bubnjic, Pilipovic – Canadjija, Kokalovic – Glavica, Rak, Delic – Busic.

Athletic Bilbao enjoyed a very promising season last term, although defeats in Europa League and Copa del Rey finals left a bad taste in the mouth.

The club chiefs somehow managed to persuade El Loco Bielsa to remain at the helm, while all key players stayed at San Mames despite heavy interest from abroad.

The Europa League clash against Slaven came at a bad time as Athletic were without several important players, but the back-ups did a great job to record a 3-1 win and make their job easier in the return leg.

Ander Herrera and Iker Muniain have since resumed training after returning from the 2012 Olympics, but Javi Martinez was allowed few more days to rest and he is out of contention for this game. Munian is doubtful for starting line up

New signing Aritz Aduriz has recovered from a hamstring injury and he could start, but Ion Aurtenetxe and Fernando Amorebieta remain sidelined. Fernando Llorente is likely to be left on the bench after expressing his desire to leave the club.

Probable starting line-up (4-3-3): Iraizoz – Iraola, Ekiza, San Jose, De Marcos – Herrera, Iturraspe, Inigo Perez – Ibai Gomez, Aduriz, Muniain.

  Marseille v Eskisehirspor  preview  

Marseille gained the upper hand of the tie by holding the Turkish side to1-1 draw in the first leg, but Eskisehirspor will give their best to make life difficult for their opponents in the return leg.

The French giants are coming on the back of one of the most disappointing seasons in their recent history, given that the team that had been tipped to fight for the title finished the league campaign in 10th place, 34 points behind champions Montpellier.

OM qualified for Europa League by winning the Coupe de la Ligue, but they were far from impressive in the first leg against Eskisehirspor, although they did miss several important players.

The squad have suffered virtually no changes apart from the fact that Elie Baup replaced Didier Deschamps, but the big problem is that a number of high-profile players is expected to leave this summer.

Loic Remy, Souleyman Diawara and Leyti N’Diaye remain sidelined, but Alou Diarra and Cesar Azpilicueta are back in contention.

Probable starting line-up (4-3-3): Mandanda – Azpilicueta, M’Bia, N’Kulou, Morel – Valbuena, Diarra, Cheyrou – Amalfitano, Gignac, A. Ayew.

Following the 12-year absence from Turkey’s top flight, Eskisehirspor gained promotion to the Super Lig in 2008 and they have been on the constant uptrend ever since.

The team finished last league campaign in 5th place to ensure their first ever European qualification, but were very unfortunate to be drawn alongside Marseille.

The Turks, nonetheless, played well against their more illustrious opponents and earned a 1-1 draw that leaves them some hope before the return leg in France.

Former Borussia Dortmund full-back Dede, former Fulham striker Diomansy Kamara and experienced defender Servet Cetin are expected to help their younger teammates in this high-profile clash that will be played at Stade Parsemain in Fos sur Mer since Velodrome is undergoing reconstruction work.

Sezgin Coskun misses out through injury, whereas striker Batuhan Karadeniz is out of contention after clashing with coach Ersun Yanal.

Probable starting line-up (4-3-2-1): Boffin – Veysel, Servet Cetin, Diego, Dede – Tello, Hurriyet, Alper – Erkan, Malecki – Kamara.
