Sporting is the leader with nine points (three wins and one defeat), still needs one point to secure qualification for the next round of the Europa League. The Portuguese Coach Paulo Sergio knows that sporting team need be strong and make a good exhibition in the game against Lille because in case of defeat they can stay in complicate position in the group and with more responsibilities for the last game at Levski Sofia Read More

Barcelona keeps playing an impressive football, appealing and effective, with 10 victories, 1 draw and 1 defeat in the league, 31 in 36 possible points, guaranteed in the next round in the Champions League, with the 1st place. Even though, they’re at the same position as the last year at the same time, in the second place and a little behind Real, with one Read More

Borussia Dortmund keeps surprising everybody and with 11 games played they are in first place with 28 points wich means that they had only lost 5 points. Dortmund had a huge test when they got a big away victory by 1 – 0 against Mainz (the previous leader). In the last game they won 4 – 0 against Hannover 96.
It’s a team that has been growing and playing well, but I think that they had already got to their top. The manager Klopp has been very well taking the most of his players. They have the best defense in the league with only 7 goals suffered. In the attack Lukas Barrios has been in a Read More

Nacional -> It’s fourth in the League with 16 points in 10 matches. Has played 5 matches at home with 3 victories and 2 defeats. They come from two consecutive wins against Setúbal at home and P. Ferreira away, both by 1-0.
A victory here, with some failures from the top teams may take the team to the Champions League position. Nacional will have two absences for this game: Pedro Oldoni and Amuneke.
The players called by manager Jokanovic are: Read More

Manchester City was the first team to beat Chelsea away this Season and will play against Utd., which hasn’t lost yet. To keep fighting for the title, City will need the 3 points, getting as many points as Utd. (23) and keeping pressure on the leader Chelsea. A millionaire team full of star players playing at home against a struggling team and not very strong when playing away.
The only Loss by City this Season when playing at home was the 0-3 against Arsenal, in a match where the 6 minute red card to Boyata made a big twist in the match’s story, even Read More

Next Sunday FC Porto hosts Benfica in the much-awaited clash between the leader and the second in the portuguese league standings. Instead of last year’s match in the Dragon Stadium (Estádio do Dragão), where Benfica came at the 28th day as an announced champion with 11-point lead over FC Porto (then third classified) and 5 points over Braga (second in the table) only two days before the league’s end, now the positions are reversed and FCPorto leads with seven points ahead.
In case of victory, FC Porto will increase to 10 points their lead over second place. If victory goes to Benfica, they will reduce the distance to 4 Read More

This match is extremely important to Juventus, which in case of not winning this match will see their pass to the next round compromised. Veccia Signora comes with high moral after an away win against rival Milan in the last Calcio game, in San Siro. The spolights goes to Alexandro Del Piero, who keeps showing class on the field and Fabio Quagliarella Read More

This afternoon they will have a very important game for the Europa League since they are at the bottom of the group and they need to get points as soon as possible. Even not being favorites Read More

After the hard and heavy derby defeat against Atletico Mineiro, Cruzeiro joins the pieces to return leading the Brasileirão after the good result achieved by Corinthians yesterday. With 54 points the team needs to win in order to regain the leadership in the competition.
Playing away the team coached by Cuca sums 6 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses with 25 goals scored and 19 conceeded. Cuca will arrange some modifications to this match: Gilberto will set the play alongside Montillo, Robert comes up front, Edcarlos is out replaced by Leo and Diego Renan is out Read More

Given the heavy investment that was made for this season, this team of Genoa is disappointing so far and miles away from what they can do so if they do not want to lose the race for next year’s eurocups, they must quickly begin to show more consistency and above all results. If the defensively the team has not been too bad offensively has already noted great difficulty in scoring goals or even in creating opportunities, even their Read More

Real Murcia is a modest Spanish team who is currently playing in the Second Division B, specifically in group 4, which currently leads the standings with 6 wins and 4 draws in the first ten rounds. They have been relegated to secondary level last season, which did not help at all to the club’s financial situation already somewhat uncertain. In this competition Murcia defeated Puertollano and Real Oviedo (both through a penalty shoot-out), and the team of Sant Andreu (1-0). According to the news are not expected changes in the team from last weekend match.
Concerning Real Madrid‘s team there isn’t really much to say. After an early season somewhat “shivered” by the formation of Mourinho, the truth is that the Portuguese Read More

FC Porto is having an outstanding performance this season that started with winning the Super Cup against Benfica, six straight wins in the league, 5 wins in the Europa League and also a win for the Portugal’s Cup. In this walk only a draw on the last round in Guimarães, always a difficult terrain where Benfica has already lost.
Until the beginning of this round Porto had the best attack with 14 goals scored and the best defense with only three conceded. In the attack there is no doubt that Hulk is in a great Read More

In fact there are several ingredients that make this game special and even dramatic, starting with the very strong desire that Braga has to affirm itself in Europe and prove they are worth much more than what they showed in the first two matches of the group. Other factors that could ignite the atmosphere around the game are the return of goalkeeper Stojkovic to Braga after a controversial gesture he made to the fans when he represented the Red Star of Belgrade and also some apprehension about the Serbian supporters after the recent Read More

After the last season, where Roma finished the league in 2nd and fighting for the tittle until the last round, they had more aspirations for this season.
These expectations were made in base of the hirings the team made; Claudio Ranieri got some good players, for the defense Cicinho and Nicolas Burdiss, in the midfield Fabio Simplicio and Read More

The home team, Spartak Moscow, is in a good streak and they don’t lose in 8 games and they have been very good in defense. They are in a group where they weren’t favourites to get in the next stage; however after the victory against Marseille in France they change that. Against Zilina they won with an easy 3 – 0. Despite the 27 goals suffered in championship, they haven’t suffered any goal in this competition. Against Chelsea and playing at home hey will have a difficult game, but I believe that they can get a positve result Read More

Game of the third round of Group E of Uefa Champions League where Bayern Munch plays at home against Cluj. If the home team wins this game they get in the next stage, while the away team gets in a very hard position if they lose. I think that Bayern is the favourite and they have all to win the three points.
Bayern Munchen is the leader of the group with 6 points after a 2 – 0 win against Rome and 2 – 1 against Basel. Despite they are not very well in the championship, the truth is that this team is dangerous (they are the vice champions) and they got two victories in two games. I Read More

Ajax is currently second in Dutch league with 10 points. Their home record is 4 wins and 1 loss. In these five games scored thirteen goals and suffered four. Ajax won last championship game, against NAC and thus ended a series of two games without a win.
In the Champions League the team has already one point, tied 1-1 when they received Milanand they had one lost in Read More

Game of the third round of Uefa Champions League where Arsenal will play at home against Shaktar Donetsk. The two leaders of the Group H will face and is expected a very good match. I am sure that both teams want to take the leadership and a victory on this game also means a place in the next stage. I believe that Arsenal show why they are favourites and get the 3 points.
Arsenal is in the first place with 6 points with two victories, a 3 – 1 away victory against Partizan and a 6 – 0 win against Braga. They are not in a good shape in the championship; however in Champions they are very well. They are a very strong team at home, particularly in this Read More

The big game of this Champions League Stage. Santiago Barnabéu will receive a game that can be one Champions League Final. Face to face will be, only the clubs which have in their showcases, the most trophies of this competition.
Real Madrid with nine titles (1955-56, 1956-57, 1957-58, 1958-59, 1959-60, 1965-66, 1997-98, 1999-00, 2001-02)
AC Milan with seven titles (1962/63, 1968/69, 1988/89, 1989/90, 1993/94, 2002/03, 2006/07)
A great game in perspective with really great players from both sides, and a national presence with Portuguese Read More

Blackburn didn’t start well this championship and despite they have showned some attacking power, they didn’t have good results. With the same points that their opponen and playing at home they have to do something in front of their fans. It’s a difficult opponent that won’t count with their major striker, Darrent Bent. They play at home, after three games away from home where they got 4 points in 3 games, an important victory with Everton and a good game against Arsenal. They didn’t suffer any goal in the lat game and Read More

This game closes the Spanish League – Day 7, with Hercules receiving Villarreal. Two teams with clearly different ambitions and qualities in my opinion. However, I hope two teams fight for victory and i expect a competitive game. I think the visiting team has other arguments and I think they are able to win this game.
Hercules has risen this year to the 1st League and is currently in 11th position with 7 points. They hired several quality players and although they are still far from the top teams, the truth is that until now have taken important steps towards its main objective, which is maintenance. In the last game moved up to the ground and were clearly defeated by Getafe (3-0). Despite having already beaten teams like Barcelona (Camp Nou) and Sevilla, this team is somewhat limited and I think they will have some difficulties today against a team that has been pretty good so far. This team big player is the top-class striker David Trezeguet, who is the team’s top scorer with 3 goals. Fans and Hercules supporters deposit Read More

Game of the 7th round of the Spanish premier league (Liga BBVA) who will oppose Atletico Madrid to Getafe. It’s a game between two teams who are currently leveled on points (10 points each), in the 6th and 7th positions respectively. Therefore, it is expected to watch a game pretty intense, even more spicy because it is a derby two teams from the same city. I expect a balanced game, but I think the home team has some advantage and could lead the “colchoneros” team to victory.
Atletico Madrid started the season very well with victory in the European Super Cup and also in the first rounds of the league, but has lately been experiencing less positive and even negative results. They will have a match this Saturday against a difficult side, which is presented Read More

This will be the first true test to the new Flamengo trained by Wanderlei Luxemburgo. The victory over Atletico Goianiense and draw against Avai have yet to measure exactly what changes the coach can implement on the team. Despite the last two good results the danger of relegation still haunts the team that occupies the fourteenth place with 34 points.
Playing at home the team has 4 wins, 8 draws and 2 losses with a record of 17 goals scored and 14 conceded. For this match Williams and Leonardo Read More

Game of the 7th round of the Spanish League with Malaga receiving Real Madrid. It’s a game between two teams with vey different objectives and quality. Real Madrid wants to be champion, while Malaga wants a secure place in the table. I think that Real Madrid has all to win this game and that’s what I expect. A curiosity is the fact that both teams are managed by portuguese, Malaga by Jesualdo Ferreira and Real Madrid by José Mourinho.
Malaga is now in the 10th place of the board with 7 points. The expectations with the hiring of some great players were many, but the truth is that the team wasn’t able to play at the expected level and now they are fighting for a safe place. In the last round they got a 1 – 1 draw away from home against Almeria, with the goal scored by Owusu-Abeyie. It’s a team that likes to attack and that’s what they do well (best Read More

Big game of the Spanish League with the champion Barcelona playing at home against Valência. In this match will face the 4th and 1st placed and is expected a big game of football.
Despite the favoritism is given to the home team, I expect a very even game and I believe that Valencia has team to get a good result.
Barcelona didn’t start the season very well and they are in the 4th place with 13 points. The team that crushed the oponents is not the same and they are not as strong as last season. In the last round they conceded a home draw against Mallorca. In this game they will face a team that has been very well and so I expect many difficulties for Barcelona to command the game. The team of Barcelona is very dependent of Messi Read More
