Barcelona vs PSV: Match preview, predictions, team news, betting tips – Champions League 2018/19

Barcelona vs PSV Eindhoven

UEFA Champions League 2018/19

Venue: Camp Nou

Date: Tuesday, 18 September

Kick-off time: 17:55 GMT+1


Barcelona, the favorites of Group B, will host the team who is expected to finish on the last place of the group. From the first sight, this is a must-win match for the Catalan side.

Attack and defense form

Barcelona scored 14 goals in their last 4 matches and conceded just 3. That means an average of 3.5 goals scored per match and an average of 0.75 goals conceded per match.  On the other side, PSV scored 21 goals and conceded 4 goals in their last 5 matches. An average of 4.2 goals scored per match and an average of 0.8 goals conceded per match.

At home, Barcelona scored 11 goals and conceded just 2 in the last 2 matches. That is an average of 5.5 goals scored per match and 1 goal conceded per match. PSV scored 14 goals and conceded 4 in their last 4 away matches. An average of 3.5 goals scored per match and 1 goal conceded per match.

Based on the above stats, Barcelona should score 4.15 goals while PSV 3.33 goals. But, Barcelona’s opponents were much tougher, so this is not too relevant.

Besides this, the difference in value between the two teams is very big, Barcelona worths 1.03 billion pounds while PSV just 118 million pounds.


Barcelona should adopt a classic attacking 4-3-3 with Stegen-Alba, Umtiti, Pique, Roberto-Coutinho, Busquets, Rakitic-Dembele, Suarez, Messi.

PSV should go for a defensive formation 4-2-3-1 with Zoet-Angelino, Viergever, Schwaab, Dumfries-Hendrix, Rosario-Lozano, Pereiro, Bergwijn-Jong.

Coutinho is expected to make his debut in UCL for Barcelona.


Barcelona should have no worries about the championship as they have 2 easy matches coming against Girona and Leganes. However, their next UCL match is an away against Tottenham, so this PSV clash should end with a victory if they don’t want to fall behind.

PSV has a derby coming in 5 days against Ajax Amsterdam, their title counter-candidates. This is an added pressure for the Holland side.

Team Stats

Both teams are coming from away wins, Barca at Sociedad(1-2) while PSV in Den Haag(0-7), so a good level of confidence is expected from these sides.

There have been over 2.5 goals in Barcelona’s last 3 UCL games. Blaugrana managed to win their UCL group in the past 11 seasons and the fact that they won all their matches this season prefigurates a similar performance. Also, Barca is unbeaten in the last 26 home matches(24W2D). A formidable streak!

I expect Barcelona to have a fresh midfield line as Busquets and Coutinho were rested at Sociedad.

Eindhoven is in a good form as they won their last 7 matches and scored 11 goals in their last 2 away matches. However, PSV failed to win an away in the Champions League since November 2007.

Betting Prediction

Backing Barcelona would be the main bet, but the odds are extremely low especially as PSV are trespassing a good period. Therefore, I would choose the Total goals markets and the Asian handicap to bet on this match. Here’s my advice:

  1. Barcelona -2 AH at 1.56 odds
  2. Over 4 goals at 2.06 odds






Championship: Leeds – Preston

Hi guys,

Championship is still in it’s early stages, yet there are some games where when you look at the odds, you feel there is some value. I got the numbers to back it, so let’s move on to my bet.

Leeds started off the season fairly well. They are the only unbeaten team in the Championship after 7 games, as they won 4 games and drew 3 of them, with an overall score of 15:5.
If we look at Leeds home games, they are only the 11th best team at home when we look at the average amount of goal scoring attempts (13.33). Their shot conversion rate is 12,5%, making them the 6th best team in the league (in home games). Their defense is much better compared to the rest of the league, as they allow only 9 goal scoring opportunities on average for the enemy team when playing at home, making them the second best team in the league from this point of view. My number of Expected Goals for Leeds is 1.584.

If we look at Preston, they have a terrible start to the season. They haven’t even scored a goal away from home yet. They are occupying the second to last place in the table and the only bright spot in their season was a win in Carabao Cup at Elland Road (Leeds stadium) 0:2. From the attacking point of view, they create in average 8.67 goal scoring opportunities when playing away from home, making them the 3rd worst team in the league from this aspect. Their shot conversion away from home sits at 0% (since they haven’t scored a goal away from home yet) from 26 attempted shots. Their defense is a little bit sweeter story for them compared to the rest of the league, as they allow in average 12.3 goal scoring opportunities for the hosting team, making them the 9th best team in the league in this aspect. My number of Expected Goals for Preston is 0.290.

Bookmaker’s odds:
Leeds: 1.88
Draw: 3.51
Preston: 4.71

My odds:
Leeds: 1.42
Draw: 4.30
Preston: 15.69

It is actually mind baffling, seeing the odds. A little context about the injuries.
Leeds will be most likely missing Gaetano Berardi, a centre-back that played in the previous 6 matches. A huge blow for Leeds will be also the absence of Kemar Roofe, their attacking midfielder, who scored 4 goals and assisted 2 more so far this season. Another midfielder, Pablo Hernandez will be also missing. So far he scored 3 goals and assisted another 2 in 5 matches this season.

Given the absence of these players, the odds make a lot more sense. However, it is still hard to not see value on Leeds’ side.

The host team has won one out of five previous games played at home, and lost four while their opponent has won one out of five previous games played away, drawn two and lost two. They may not be on their own pitch, but I think the visiting team would likely own this game.

Frosinone vs Sampdoria Prediction & Match Preview

Frosinone vs Sampdoria
2018/19 Italian Serie A.
Date: Saturday 15 September 2018
Kick-Off: 19:30 UK,
Venue: Stadio Benito Stirpe (Frosinone).

On the 15 September 2018 at 18:30 UTC meet Frosinone vs Sampdoria in Italy in a game that we all expect to be very interesting. Both teams try to perform well in Serie A.


The last time Sampdoria won an away Serie A match against a newly-promoted team was back in March 2014 (2-1 against Sassuolo): since then, they have drawn six and lost six in 12 games.
Frosinone are one of just two teams – along with Bologna – who have failed to score in Serie A so far this season; they have failed to score in their last five league games.
Sampdoria have lost eight of their last nine Serie A away matches (W1), conceding 2.2 goals per game on average.
Sampdoria have conceded 0.5 goals per game in Serie A this season – only SPAL have conceded fewer per game (0.3).
No side has scored fewer goals from corners than Sampdoria in Serie A last term (three), while Frosinone scored 11 goals via corners in Serie B in 2017-18, with only Salernitana scoring more (12).
Four of the five goals conceded by Frosinone in Serie A this season have come in the second half.
Fabio Quagliarella has found the net in both of his two Serie A apperances against Frosinone, in August 2015 (with Torino) and in February 2016 (with Sampdoria).
Emil Audero has recorded the best save percentage in Serie A so far (90%), whilst only Robin Olsen (14) has made more saves than Marco Sportiello (12).
Raffaele Maiello have made 30 recoveries in Serie A this season, more than any other outfield player in the competition.

Sampdoria have only played two games so far after the Genoa bridge collapse but come into this match having shocked pretty much everyone by beating Napoli 3-0 in their last game before the international break.

However, that was a home fixture. They lost to Udinese, showing yet again that they continue to struggle on the road and that was a problem for them last term.

Although certainly they seemed to want to build their season off strong home results, even that was not enough to earn them a spot in the Europa League as they were beaten at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris and one can’t win all their home games.

They will be hoping to improve their away form at the expense of Frosinone, a team who are aiming not just to win their first Serie A game but score their first goal.

Predictably, they have struggled in their sophomore season in the top flight. Last time around they went down without much fuss and although they were crushed by Atalanta they put in a good fight against Lazio, only to lose that match narrowly.

Sampdoria will naturally hope that beating Napoli will be the sign of great things to come, but last season saw them pull off a strong home result only to slip up on the road against a minnow.

Their defense has cost them in their travels and that is something Frosinone will be desperately hoping to exploit as they look to finally start putting both some goals and some points on the board.

Frosinone vs Sampdoria: Head-to-head statistics
Sampdoria have lost 8 of their last 9 away matches
Sampdoria have lost five in a row on the road
Overall, Sampdoria won just four of their 19 away games last season
Frosinone’s only win so far in Serie A against Sampdoria has come at their home ground
Although Frosinone have yet to score or win a game this season, Sampdoria have a lousy away record.

They have lost five in a row on the road and have been beaten in eight of their last nine in their travels. All in all they won just four of their 19 away fixtures last season and already have lost one away game this term.

The hosts will be determined not to miss this opportunity and they should be able to avoid a loss against a team who have one of the worst traveling records in the division.

The fact that Sampdoria lost on the road last season to teams like SPAL (3-1), Sassuolo (1-0), Chievo (2-1), and even relegated Benevento (3-2) will give Frosinone even more hope of getting some kind of result.

Joel Campbell is facing a race against time to return to fitness ahead of this clash.

Riccardo Saponara is set for almost a month on the sidelines, which gives Gaston Ramirez a way back in to the first team.

Wolfsburg v Hertha Berlin Betting Preview | Betting Tips

Wolfsburg vs Hertha Berlin predictions for this weekend’s German Bundesliga. Wolfsburg and Hertha will both be looking to continue ther perfect starts to the season when they clash at the Volkwagen Arena on Saturday. Read on for our free betting tips and match preview.

Match facts:

There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Wolfsburg’s last 6 games (Bundesliga).
Wolfsburg have scored at least 2 goals in their last 7 home matches against Hertha Berlin in all competitions.
Wolfsburg have won their last 3 matches (Bundesliga).
Wolfsburg have scored at least 2 goals in their last 3 matches (Bundesliga).
Hertha Berlin are undefeated in their last 5 matches against Wolfsburg in all competitions.
Wolfsburg, Hertha Berlin and Bayern Munich are the only teams to have won both of their Bundesliga matches so far this season.
Over 2.5 goals were scored in all of Wolfsburg’s last six Bundesliga outings and in four of Hertha’s last five Bundesliga away matches.
Wolfsburg have registered the joint-fourth most shots on target in the league so far.
Wolfsburg’s Wout Weghorst and Renato Steffen both scored maiden Bundesliga goals last time out.

Wolfsburg have been one of the surprise packages of the 18/19 Bundesliga campaign so far, taking six points from their opening two games against last season’s top six finishers Schalke 04 (a 2-1 home win) and Bayer Leverkusen (a 3-1 away win) – not bad for a team who maintained their top flight status via the relegation play-off for a second consecutive time. Coach Bruno Labbadia would have been no doubt happy to see Dutch signing Wout Weghorst (27 goals in all competitions for AZ last term) get his maiden Bundesliga goal in the latter too, and if Wolfsburg’s summer investments keep performing, there’s no doubt in our minds that the Wolves can avoid a third time repeat.

A relatively uneventful 17/18 campaign for Hertha Berlin saw them finish ten points clear of the relegation play-off spot and as many adrift of the top six, but the way that Hertha have hit the ground running – similar to Wolfsburg – means we can expect to see more of them too this season. Pal Dardai’s summer reinforcements, defender Lukas Klunter from relegated Cologne and loanees Javairo Dilrosun (from Man City) and Marko Grujic (from Liverpool) being a few of these, add strength to an already well-bonded side. Hertha look to have brought forward the attacking magic found towards the end of last season, while also boasting new-found defensive solidity – Hertha are the only side yet to concede a goal in the Bundesliga. A dangerous combination.

So how does this one look in terms of betting? Well, there looks to be some good value in backing goals from our perspective. Wolfsburg are the second highest scoring side in the Bundesliga up to now, even scoring two past the league’s third best defense in the 17/18 season (Schalke 04), but they are also yet to keep a clean sheet. From Hertha’s standpoint, the Berliners are yet to concede, but they have had the slightly easier task of hosting a newly promoted Nurnberg in their opener, who are to now largely unproven in the top flight – even in that match they were lucky not to concede after giving away a penalty. And though Hertha continue to play without last season’s second top scorer Davie Selke (forward – 10 goals) and fourth top scorer Mathew Leckie (winger – 5 goals), we can expect attacking threat from veteran options Salomon Kalou and forward Vedad Ibisevic.

Wolfsburg’s new offensive approach has seen them bag three away to a side like Bayer Leverkusen, but it does leave some concern around their defense – Wolfsburg have allowed more shots against them (25) that they have had shots on goal (23). Hertha were very inconsistent away from home towards the end of last season, losing to an out-of-form Hannover one week but beating an in-form Eintracht Frankfurt the next, so you can’t always know what to expect from them, but one thing that has been consistent from them is goals – in fact, Hertha have scored at least one goal in 9 of their last 10 Bundesliga outings, including all five away from home. Ultimately, here are two in-form sides that look better at attack than defense, but the Wolves’ home advantage and better attacking record so far (see statistics) makes us think they will be the ones to keep the fairytale going.


Hertha Berlin drew 0-0 at home to Wolfsburg when the two sides last met in March. Hertha are unbeaten in five against Wolfsburg (W2 D3)


New signing Wout Weghorst has settled in as Wolfsburg’s lone man up front. Captain Josuha Guilavogui (knee) and midfielder Felix Klaus (abdominal) both remain out.


Defender Rekik (adductor), midfielder Darida and forward Davie Selke (10 goals in 27 appearances last season) are all sidelined. Australian winger Mathew Leckie is also still doubtful (fitness).

Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool Betting Tips: Team news, preview and predictions

The Premier League returns with a blockbuster clash between Tottenham and Liverpool.

The Reds top the table after four games, having preserved their 100 per cent winning record with a victory over Leicester City last time out while Spurs suffered a 2-1 defeat at high-flying Watford. The Reds maintained their unbeaten start to the season against ​Leicester as they ran out 2-1 victors, with goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the clash at Wembley.

Team News:


Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is set to call Eric Dier back into the squad after starting the 2-1 loss to Watford on the bench. Hugo Lloris and Dele Alli miss out through injury, with Michel Vorm and Mousa Dembele set to start in goal and midfield, respectively, while Moussa Sissoko and Erik Lamela will be assessed before Saturday’s lunchtime kick off.Juan Foyth and Vincent Janssen are both ruled out for the hosts, but Son Heung-Min has returned from international duty.


Jurgen Klopp is without injured trio Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Dejan Lovren and Adam Lallana, with the latter sustaining a groin problem that forced him to pull out of the England squad for the September internationals.Simon Mignolet is suffering with a hand problem, though wasn’t expected to start.Naby Keita could return to the XI that started the 2-1 win over Leicester before the international break, which would see Jordan Henderson drop to the bench.

Classic Encounter

Tottenham Hotspur 2-3 Liverpool (Premier League 2002/03)

Five second half goals settled this fixture back in March 2003 as Liverpool battled to a 2-3 away victory in a Spring goal fest. Liverpool’s victory helped them in their quest for European football, whilst Spurs’ defeat led to a tenth place finish.An uneventful first half was quickly forgotten as left back Mauricio Taricco opened the scoring for Spurs four minutes after the restart. However, that lead was short-lived for the north London side as a 22-year-old Michael Owen hit back two minutes later. Liverpool then took the lead for the first time as Emile Heskey doubled the Reds’ advantage with 20 minutes to go. A young Steven Gerrard gave Liverpool a two-goal lead with eight minutes left as he scored against Kasey Keller.Teddy Sheringham’s goal three minutes from time made it a tense end to the hard fought fixture, but despite the late goal it was Liverpool who took away all three points.

Key Battle

Christian Eriksen vs James Milner

In form Christian Eriksen is in for a tough afternoon against combative midfielder James Milner. Fresh from his two goals against Wales during the international break, the Danish playmaker will have to be on top form to win the battle in midfield against Milner.The Liverpool midfielder has had a strong start to the season and his combative style of play could be used to throw Eriksen off his game.

Potential Spurs Lineup: Vorm; Trippier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies; Dier, Dembele, Eriksen; ​Kane, Moura.

Potential Liverpool Lineup: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Milner, Wijnaldum, Henderson; Mane, Firmino, ​Salah.


Three wins and one defeat in four games is still a good record for Spurs but against an in form Liverpool side it may be difficult. Liverpool have played some fantastic football this season and have remained unbeaten for a reason. Sadio Mane has been on top form this season with four goals in four games and if he continues in that vein, Spurs could be in for a difficult afternoon.Lucas Moura has also been on top form, earning the Premier League’s Player of the Month for August, and he alongside Eriksen, Alli and Kane could also be the difference in this game.

My prediction:

Bet  Tottenham Hotspur Asian handicap +0.25   Best  odds  1.9

Greuther Fuerth vs Holstein Kiel: Preview and Predictions

Hi guys! I am Arzu from Bitcoinbettors Team and we are continue our betting journey.

Greuther Furth meets Holstein Kiel in a match of a round in Germany 2. Bundesliga this Saturday at 17:00 at Sportpark Ronhof Thomas Sommer

Greuther Furth Overall

In the last 10 games played Home team has earned 2 wins, 7 draws and 1 loss. Since the start of the season in 2. Bundesliga, Greuther Furth has so far 2 victories, 2 tie and 0 defeats. In these games the team has scored 7 goals and conceded 4.

Greuther Furth as a Host
In their 5 games at home Greuther Furth has recorded 1 wins, 4 draw and 0 losses. As a host this season, Greuther Furth records total of 1 wins, 1 draws and 0 loss. In these matches Home team has scored 5 goals and conceded 3 goals.

Greuther Furth is in bad shape, as it has only 1 win in last 5 games.

Greuther Furth have enjoyed an excellent start to their league campaign. The Shamrock have picked up an impressive eight points from four league games, winning two and drawing two. Since winning their opening game 3-1 against struggling Sandhausen, the club have drawn with Ingolstadt and Paderborn before winning their last away league match in round four 1-0 against Duisburg. However, the fact that they have kept a clean sheet only against the rock-bottom side last time out may be a cause for concern.

Holstein Kiel Overall
Away team has recorded 4 victories, 3 tie and 3 defeats on the last 10 games. Since the beginning of the 2. Bundesliga season, Away team has 2 wins, 2 draws and 0 losses. In these games Away team has scored 6 goals and conceded 2 goals.

Holstein Kiel – Away
In their last 5 games played outside their stadium Away team has recorded 2 victory, 2 draws and 1 defeats. As a guest this season Holstein Kiel has recorded total of 1 wins 1 draws and 0 losses. In these matches the team has scored 3 and conceded 0 goals.

Holstein Kiel is in satisfactory shape, as it has 2 wins in the last 5 games.

Holstein Kiel have also picked up two wins and two draws from their first four league games and are one of only four sides who are still unbeaten this term. After springing a big surprise when beating promotion candidates Hamburg 3-0 away from home on the opening weekend, Tim Walter’s men were lucky to remain unbeaten against Heidenheim and Jahn Regensburg, registering draws on both occasions. The team then came from behind, scoring two late goals, to take all three points against newly promoted outfit Magdeburg on their own turf last time out.

With both teams locked on eight points each, this could go either way at Sportpark Ronhof. However, I think that home advantage could be the deciding factor. Back a narrow Greuther Furth win here.

Head 2 Head
In the last five years matches between Greuther Furth and Holstein Kiel at Sportpark Ronhof Thomas Sommer, Home has 0 wins, 1 of the games have ended in a draw and 0 victories for Away team.
There have only been two league encounters between these two recently, with the pair playing out a 0-0 draw at Sportpark Ronhof and Holstein Kiel winning their home league fixture last season.


Greuther Furth have no fresh injuries or suspensions to worry about.

Holstein Kiel’s Arne Sicker and Philipp Sander will not be available for the league encounter against Greuther Furth.

Soccer – Netherlands. Jong AZ – G.A. Eagles.Tomorrow, 15 Sep 2018, 00:00

Jong AZ vs Go Ahead Eagles predictions for Friday night’s Eerste Divisie encounter at AFAS Stadion. Can Eerste Divisie leaders Go Ahead Eagles continue their fantastic start to the season against Jong AZ? Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.

Here  some betting statistic:

Teams Jong AZ Alkmaar Go Ahead Eagles played so far 2 matches.
Jong AZ Alkmaar won 0 direct matches. Go Ahead Eagles won 1 matches. 1 matches ended in a draw. On average in direct matches both teams scored a 1.50 goals per Match.

Jong AZ Alkmaar in actual season average scored 1.20 goals per match. In 1 (50.00%) matches played at home was total goals (team and opponent) Over 1.5 goals. In 1 (50.00%) matches in season 2018 played at home was total goals (team and opponent) Over 2.5 goals.

Go Ahead Eagles average scored 2.33 goals per match in season 2018. In 2 (100.00%) matches played away was total goals (team and opponent) Over 1.5 goals. In 2 (100.00%) matches played away team was total goals (team and opponent) Over 2.5 goals.

Eerste Divisie leaders Go Ahead Eagles will be out to extend their tremendous 100% start to the campaign this Friday night when they take on Jong AZ at AFAS Stadion.Go Ahead have surpassed all expectations so far this term in banking four wins from four, and they head into match day five two points clear at the top of the table from Cambuur and NEC.Their latest success was a bloodless 3-0 victory against struggling Volendam at De Adelaarshorst last week, where the game was essentially won at half time thanks to strikes from Orzan Dzepar and Jaroslav Navratil. Thomas Verheydt grabbed a third around the hour mark to put the seal on the points and wrap up Go Ahead’s second easy triumph at home this term, following their 5-0 battering of Jong Utrecht on the opening night. John Stegeman’s charges have been more workmanlike than spectacular on the road, but they’ve shown great battling qualities to record 1-2 wins at FC Eindhoven and MVV. It’s a strong sign when a team can win pretty and ugly, and Eagles will be brimming with confidence for their visit to Alkmaar this week. This fixture wasn’t exactly a classic in 2017/18 as the sides played out a dull goalless draw, but a similar result on Friday will probably suffice right now for the struggling hosts. Jong AZ are 17th in the table and amongst a clutch of sides with just one point to their name from their first four Eerste Divisie outings. Martin Haar’s men were perhaps a shade unfortunate to lose 2-3 and 2-1 to Almere City and Cambuur respectively in the opening fortnight of the season, but they were poor in drawing 1-1 away to a woeful Volendam side on match day three. And Jong failed to land a blow at home to defending champions Jong Ajax last weekend, losing 0-1 in another dreary affair. The Alkmaar outfit finished 16th in their Eerste Divisie debut season, and right now it looks unlikely that they’ll be able to surpass that this term. Striker Ferdy Druijf has been one positive for Jong AZ so far, wading in with three goals in four matches, and Friday’s hosts will need some kind of contribution from their main man if they’re to take anything from the current leaders. Go Ahead will have to prove that they’re the real deal in the coming weeks, and we caution their hot start to a degree, considering they’re yet to play a team that finished in the top half last term or a relegated Eredivisie club. But based on their results to date, they should have too much in hand for this Jong side on match day, and we just can’t see their momentum being broken yet. Odds against at time of press, we rate Go Ahead Eagles a fantastic bet here to land the spoils, and we’re also going to chance a third 1-2 away win on the bounce for the Deventer outfit at a generous price.

Head to Head results:

The teams met competitively for the first time in Eerste Divisie last season. Go Ahead Eagles came out best 2-1 in Deventer, whilst this corresponding fixture ended in a 0-0 stalemate.

Jong AZ team news:

Right-back Levi Opdam misses out for the hosts after his red card against Jong Ajax last week, so Joerie Church steps in. Young keeper Jasper Schendelaar retains his place in goal in the absence of Rody de Boer (shoulder). In form striker Ferdy Druijf leads the line again for the home side and is one to watch out for.

G.A. Eagles team news:

Go Ahead’s front three of Dzepar, Verheydt and Navratil all netted in the 3-0 victory over Volendam last week and retain their places in John Stegeman’s side. No changes are expected for the Eerste Divisie leaders ahead of their visit to AFAS Stadion.

My prediction:

Bet Jong AZ AH (+0.25)  odds  2.12

In the first analysis, these two teams are quite balanced, so there is not one team that dominates strongly on the other. The Valenciennes has only 0 points less of Grenoble, from here it is understood that the game could be balanced. The statistics of the championship indicate that Grenoble has proved victorious at home in 2 challenges on 3, with a goal score of 2 facts and 0 suffered. on the other hand, Valenciennes dominates his opponent away from home 1 times on 2 games, scoring 2 times and conceding 3 goals. Let’s compare the last five games played in this championship for the two teams in question to understand their form. The legend of the table is as follows: date of the match, opposing team, final result, result 1T (from which we can understand that of the second half), position on the ranking before playing.

Below the statistics on the league and teams of Over and Under and Average of the Goals. A valuable set of data that compares the teams Grenoble and Valenciennes with their championship of membership of France – Ligue 2 all to refine your bets on Total Goals. Let’s concentrate on the average goals of the contending teams, respectively of 1.17 and 2.5 Total scores for Grenoble and Valenciennes. those suffered.These two averages, which are still the average goals of the single teams, are to be combined in a new joint average, which gains value 1.835 Goals and then compare it with the same value but on everything the championship We will find out that the first average is greater than second. These two averages, calculated on the first half, which are still the average goals of the individual teams, must be combined in a new joint average, which gains value 1.07 Goals. same value but over the whole championship.We find out that the first average is greater than second. We produce a further average between the two previously calculated values, which will become 0.5 If we compare this value with the average goal of their league in the second half, we will conclude that the first value is lesser than with the championship average, of 0.7 Gol.

Based on the past, we are convinced that during the game there will not be many goals. The probability that both teams score is low, precisely of 7.24%. Analyzing the Partial / Final result of the match, we conclude that the match is very balanced and could end in a draw in both times. This type of result makes us think of a 0-0 at the end of the game, but we can not exclude reversals in the face given the balance of the game.
The team Grenoble shows up to the clash with performances under the average, has lost and tied more times than it has won. his score, or will he fall even further? Valenciennes had results below average, it was not a complete disaster but there is still a lot to do. 5 points out of 15 totaled in these five games and a road so all uphill.

Grenoble was one of the performers from first 3 rounds when with 7 points were undefeated. 2 narrow 1-0 wins at home and a lucky 1-1 draw and the things were perfect for newly promoted. but a single point won in last 3 and Grenoble seems to be now with thier feet on the ground, seeing actually is hard in Ligue 2.Not a psecial team , a team who score too less but so far 1 goal was enough for them to bring 3 points.

Valenciennes have some problems in this trip, they will be without thier captai Roudet, other 2 players are suspended so no doubt will lack of creativity at the middle. So I think they will have a defensive display here trying to hit on the counterattack.

The home team secured in the past season extremely close to the league. Only two points had them ahead of eighteenth place. Things were different at Le Havre – thanks to nineteen victories, they secured the fourth place in the standings and thus entered the ascent games. Due to a defeat against AC Ajaccio but it was not enough for promotion to Ligue 1. Also in the direct duels of the class difference of Le Havre and Nancy was clear – Le Havre secured two clear victories 3-0! Also in the current season, the signs are at AS Nancy on descent. After six games, the footballers from Lorraine have not scored a single goal! In the duel between AS Nancy and Le Havre AC, a tip on the away team is lucrative. Although Nancy is in last place with zero points and a goal difference of -10, the betting odds in a home win are only in the 3 rd area.


The most successful years are over for AS Nancy. About ten years ago, the footballers from Lorraine were represented in Ligue 1. In 2006, they even won the victory in the Coupe de la Ligue. Thanks to this success, Nancy qualified for the UEFA Cup. In the last qualifying round, the French eliminated Schalke 04. The group phase survived the thistles before they failed in the sixteenth finals at Shakhtar Donetsk. In addition came in the season 2007/08, the fourth rank in the top French league. But these glorious times are over. In the past season, Nancy dueled to the league in Ligue 2. This undertaking was only possible thanks to a strong final spurt. In the last five games Nancy won three wins, with all successes were retracted in the home stadium. In general, Nancy is home strong. In the current season but was so far nothing to feel. After six rounds the thistles are at the bottom of the table and still have no point in the account. Even worse is the goal difference – ten goals conceded the defense of Nancy, the offensive yet scored a single goal. Thus, the motto of the association: “Who rubs it, it will stick to it” not really implemented. Also in the duel with Le Havre it looks like after that Nancy will continue to remain without scoring.

Le Havre:

Often, Le Havre AC is referred to as France’s oldest football club. Whether this is true can not be conclusively stated. However, HAC belongs to the year of foundation in 1872 certainly the category of the oldest clubs. However, Le Havre is not really successful, and the best ranking in Ligue 1 is already over 60 years back. After relegation to the second division in 2009, Le Havre has not fought back to the top flight. In the past season, the footballers from the north of France but denied the rise games, because after 34 rounds Le Havre was in the fourth league table with 66 points in the account represented. Especially the final offensive has been the decisive factor. From the last ten games they have earned 22 counters. The trend was only partially taken into the new season. After six games, Le Havre is on the eighth place in the standings with nine points, where they played a surprising draw away against Lorient.

Le Havre started convincingly in the Coupe de la Ligue. In the first round, the northern French dueled against a unterklassiges team. The 2-0 home win was the logical consequence. Last Le Havre secured a 4: 3 win on penalties. Against Brest HAC was after the break with 3: 0 lead. Brest turned the game to 3: 3 within three minutes. At this stage, the defensive of Le Havre was completely overwhelmed. Overall, the defense seems to be solid, after all, they conceded only three goals in the other seven games. In the Affiche between AS Nancy and Le Havre AC is therefore a tip on the away team interesting.
