Europa League INFO

Europa League, Superfund Pasching (Aut) – Estoril (Por)  2 @ 1,75

Must take this on this odds. If we compare Austrian and Switzerland leagues they are almost similar (statisticly Swiss one place better, look here )..But this is game between team from Austria Regionalliga club vs Portugal top league. First game in Portugal was 2-0 for Estoril (true, Pasching should have penalty and not play so bad as all think they will). This game will be in Linz (near Pasching) because pasching not gave stadium for Euro games..Austrian side must play offensive now, it’s 2nd game and they dont have nothing to loose (totally different game than first one), attack and i think Estoril players will ude that in their favor
Estoril in good form and wants comfirm EL groups. This is smaller club and each victory is good for them (because victory brings more money). Marco Silva did not notice any change in Estoril, to visit Pasching in the second leg of the playoff access to the Europa League.
The technician called the nineteen players who had been called to visit Arouca, in the last round of the League. Out for them are Gerson (0/0), Babanco (1/0) e Tiago Gomes (0/0).
Pasching will be without their topscorer Yusuf Otubanjo (att 3/3).

Pasching: Berger – Kerschbaumer, Grasegger, Kablar, Prettenthaler – Perchtold, Krammer – Schobesberger, Sobkova, Petrovic – Casanova
Ersatz: Höfler – Dusak, Hamdemir, Pfennich, Blutsch, Mössner

Estoril: Vagner – Anderson, Tavares, Miguel, Mano – Goncalo, Evandro, Goncalves – Carlitos, Leal, Joao Pedro
Ersatz: Ribeiro – Javier Balboa, G. Fernandes, Gladestony, Seba, Diogo Amado, R. Fernandes

Sheriff Tiraspol (Mda) – Vojvodina (Srb) -0,25 Sheriff @ 2,02 3/10

i am not fan of betting on EL but will try for low stake -0,25 on Sheriff. They are solid team, i look them round before with DInamo and this round they played draw in Serbia, 1-0. They was leading 1-0 there and played more than half game with 10 players. This time they are at home and i see chance for them

Vojvodina weaker than before, before this round team left main player, topscorer and they didnt impress so far (according to my serbian colleagues)..

 Denmark – Bulgaria 


 Turkey – Hungary 


 Serbia – Scotland 


 France – Spain 

France go into this crunch tie looking to open up a five-point gap at the Group I summit, which would see them all but secure the first place in the standings.

Spain, on the other hand, hope to make amends for the 1-1 draw against Finland and return to the top of the group by winning at Stade de France.

Didier Deschamps was always going to have a difficult task having taken over the reigns after yet another disappointing showing at the tournament finals.

Les Bleus, nonetheless, started the 2014 World Cup qualifiers strongly, defeating Finland and Belarus, before holding Euro 2012 champions Spain to a 1-1 draw in Madrid.

France have since recorded a comfortable win over Georgia, which saw them create a two-point advantage at the top given that Spain slipped up against Finland.

The hosts now have a great chance to make a giant step towards the tournament finals..Didier Deschamps is set to revert to 4-3-3 formation for the Spain match, which could see Olivier Giroud make way for Yohan Cabaye.

Probable starting line-up (4-3-3): Lloris – Jallet, Varane, Sakho, Clichy – Cabaye, Matuidi, Pogba – Valbuena, Benzema, Ribery.

Spain remain the team to beat after winning the last three major tournaments, but La Furia Roja have experienced some unexpected problems in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers. It all started from that match against France, when Vicente del Bosque’s side largely dominated the game and looked to be cruising to victory, that is until Olivier Giroud scored a late, late goal to earn one point for les Bleus.

Same thing happened on Friday against Finland, as La Furia Roja couldn’t hold on to a one-goal lead, but it is too early to be talking about a dip in form or something like that. Spain did make some mistakes in the two matches, but that is likely to make the players even more determined to make things right in Paris. David Villa looks set to start up front as Vicente del Bosque plans some changes to the starting line-up..

Jordi Alba and David Silva miss out through injury and suspension, but Xabi Alonso, Xavi Hernandez and Pedro return to the starting line-up.

Probable starting line-up (4-3-3): Valdes – Arbeloa, Ramos, Pique, Monreal – Xavi, Busquets, Xabi Alonso – Pedro, Villa, Iniesta.
