SOCCER PREDICTION: Lipsia – Augsburg 09.02.2018

LEIPZIG – AUGSBURG: Soccer Prediction of the Day

If the victory of the title is obvious, with Bayern Monaco who has eighteen points of advantage on the second, the one for the Champions League area is very exciting and theoretically involves seven teams. Between the second in the standings and the eighth there are just four points of difference.

In the middle of this fight there are the two teams that will face each other in anticipation of Friday, namely Leipzig and Augsburg. The team coached by Ralph Hasenhüttl, who will face Napoli in the Europa League next Thursday, is second on a par with 35 points with Bayer Leverkusen, but at the moment clearly ahead with the goal difference. The increasingly surprising Augsburg has just four points less and in the last round he beat the Eintracht Frankfurt at home with a clear three to zero.

The Leipzig overcame the disappointment for the only point made against Freiburg and Hamburg, beating away the Borussia Monchengladbach. The decisive goal was marked by the new purchase Lookman, a young man who arrived during the summer transfer from Everton. The company is very attentive to potential champions also because the coach Hasenhüttl has shown that we can do a lot with young people.

It will probably be a more balanced match than expected, but Leipzig has a more qualitative overall rose than that of the Augsburg who had started the season with the main goal of a quiet salvation. Among other things, they will miss Finnbogason, Gouweleeuw, Richter and Opare, which is why home training is even more favored.
The latest news on the formations

The Swedish national Forsberg is back in the week to train with the group, but the coach should not risk it, also because he wants to preserve it in view of the leg of the UEFA Europa League round of 16 against Napoli.

Lookman, to mark his debut as a substitute with the new shirt of Leipzig, should also start this game from the bench, to replace the game in progress Bruma. The form of play will be 4-3-3, with Naby Keita pin of the midfield and Werner striker of reference. For the rest the only absent is Halstenberg. The coach Hasenhüttl should not do too much turnover for this match, very important in the Champions League area.

On the other hand, Finnbogason, Gouweleeuw, Richter and Opar will be missing, absences that could penalize the performance of a team that is not too exhilarating on the road (three losses and a draw in the last five).

The probable formations of Leipzig-Augsburg

LEIPSIA (4-3-3): Gulacsi; Laimer, Orban, Upamecano, Klostermann; Kampl, Demme, Keita; Sabitzer, Werner, Bruma.
AUGSBURG (4-2-3-1): Hitz; Framberger, Danso, Hinteregger, Max; Khedira, Baier; Heller, Koo, Caiuby; Gregoritsch.

Watford vs Chelsea Soccer Prediction 05.02.2018

Right because of that and being in weak shape at the moment, every Watford fan is very much worried about what can happened in duel with “wounded” Chelsea, which is engaged in fierce battle for positions that lead to the Champions League. On the other hand, Watford is currently positioned around mid-table but has just four points more than teams in the drop zone. It means it will need to significantly improve its form in continuation of season if it wants to avoid survival struggle.

Because of that Watford recently replaced the head coach and now it is Spaniard Garcia, who in his short tenure had lost away to Southampton in the FA Cup and drew away with Stoke in the league when no goals were scored. Garcia has problem with injuries of defenders Femenie, Cathcart, Britos, Kaboul and Wague, and midfielders Cleverly, Hughes and Chalobah, while midfielder Ndong cannot play in this match due to suspension. Ndong is newcomer to Watford, just like forwards Deulofeuo and Lukebakio.

Probable lineups Watford: Karnezis – Mariappa, Prodl, Kabasele, Holebas – Pereyra, Capoue, Doucoure – Deulofeu, Deeney, Richarlison

We have said in the introduction that reigning champions of England were unexpectedly defeated in previous round at home by Bournemouth 3-0, which put position of coach Conte under questioning. On top of it, Chelsea was recently eliminated from the League Cup where it lost in the semi-final to city rival Arsenal, while in the league it won just one match in last four rounds; it drew two and lost one match, and right not it occupies fourth place in the table and has three points fewer than second-positioned Manchester United.

True, two rounds ago they defeated away Brighton by sound 4-0 in the league, while last weekend they routinely won at home Newcastle 3-0 in the FA Cup. However, in order to be even more competitive in continuation of season Chelsea brought in January defender Emerson, midfielder Barkley and forward Giroud, while the team have left defender Kenedy, and forwards Diego Costa and Batshuayi. Let’s add that on the list of injured players are currently stoppers David Luiz and Christiansen, and forwards Morata and Willian.

Probable lineups Chelsea: Courtois – Azpilicueta, Cahill, Rudiger – Moses, Bakayoko, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso –Hazard – Giroud

Watford – Chelsea Soccer Prediction of Today

Although the reigning champions seem to be in crisis we have nevertheless decided to play here on their victory over Watford, which is also not in the best possible shape, and on top of it lost three previous head-to-head with the Blues.

Prediction Today: Chelsea wins

Odds: 1.64

Arminia Bielefeld – Union Berlin: Soccer Prediction 05.02.2018


After two defeats at the end of first part of season Arminia had opened the second with a goalless draw at home with Furth. Because of that it was not expected to do something against Bochum away in previous round. However, Arminia managed to win by 1-0 thanks to Hertherz goal from free kick scored around middle of second halftime. It was welcomed victory as it put an end to three-game winless streak, while three new points help to maintain distance from the drop zone.

It should be said that Arminia had full dominance on the pitch against Furth, however, it scored no goals. In Bochum Arminia’s defence was up to task and one goal was enough for victory. Midfielder Prietl couldn’t play then due to accumulated yellow cards and Staude was the one who played instead of him, however, he performed badly and Prietl return is imminent.

Probable lineups Arminia Bielefeld: Ortega – Dick, Borner, Behrendt, Hartherz – Prietl, Schutz – Weihrauch, Kerschbaumer – Klos, Woglsammer

At one point this season Union Berlin was very close to leading teams and it seemed that can join the race for promotion to the Bundesliga as it reached the third place after six-game unbeaten streak. However, from that moment Union Berlin felt apart given series of seven matches without victory, which is still on going. They lost even five times in the period and drew just two, one with very strong Kiel two rounds ago.

They were trailing behind for two gaols but they managed to equalise the result. It seemed that the result can help them overcome psychological crisis, however, in previous round they faced another strong team, Nurnberg, and lost at home by 1-0. The only goal was scored early in the match, while later on two Union Berlin players were sent off. The two suspended players will weaken them in this match too. Coach Hofschneider was forced to make one change after drew in Kiel and scorer of one of the goals Skrzybski paused due to injury, and instead of him Gogia got chance. Now, Leistner and Hosiner cannot play as they are suspended.

Probable lineups Union Berlin: Mesenholer – Trimmel, Torrejon, Parensen, Pedersen – Promel – Hartel, F. Kroos, Hedlund, Gogia – Polter

Arminia Bielefeld – Union Berlin Prediction Today

Arminia is in much better shape which they proofed with victory in previous round, and they played better than Union Berlin even before that, which is in deep crisis and can hardly do anything more than drew in Bielefeld.

Prediction Today: Asian handicap 0 Arminia

Odds: 1.80

Benevento – Napoli: Soccer Prediction 04.02.2018

Head-tail of the Serie A, or rather the tail-head at the Ciro Vigorito Stadium where Roberto De Zerbi’s Benevento tackles Maurizio Sarri’s Napoli on the 23rd matchday of Serie A. There are 50 points separating the two teams in the league. to understand where the balance of the challenge hangs from. The Benevento in the last round collected the 19 th league loss on the field of Torino losing 3-0 and against the Azzurri will not even have its goalkeeper, Belec, suspended for three rounds after the expulsion against the grenade. Also out Antei due to injury and of course Lucioni stopped for doping. In Naples, which won at home in the last round against Bologna 3-1 thanks to Ibrahima Mbaye’s own goal and two goals by Dries Mertens, still problems for Milik and Ghoulam.

Napoli have won 13 of their last 14 Serie A away games.

The Benevento has missed the victory in 20 of the last 22 days of the championship.

There were 8 Over 2.5 in the last 9 home games of Benevento.

Napoli has not conceded a goal in 5 of the last 7 away matches.


Benevento – Naples: Prediction Today

Prediction Today: Over 2.5

Odds: 1.5

RC Strasbourg – Bordeaux Soccer Prediction 03.02.2018

Bordeaux ball by its inconstancy but remains able to propose beautiful things, as against Lyon (3-1) last Sunday. If the victory was stained by a rough simulation – resulting in a converted penalty – the Girondins can still be satisfied with the overall performance delivered to the Gones. Already strong the week before at Nantes (0-1), the men of Gustavo Poyet would see fit still a part of five points behind that they count on a sixth place potentially European. The issues are different on the RCS side. Promoted last year thanks to its title in L2, the Alsatian club is focused on maintaining. Tombeur PSG (2-1) but also author of some big games, Strasbourg has proven over the weeks that his collective would certainly allow him to achieve his goal. It is also with this quality that the group led by Thierry Laurey had out Bordeaux (0-3) in the first leg. Beaten little Lille (2-1) last weekend, the Strasbourg, 12th, today rely on this appointment within their reach to keep a mattress ahead of the red zone. We can expect everything at the stage of the Meinau!

Strasbourg has already dropped Paris (2-1) and had spent only seconds to dominate the OM (3-3) on his field this season.

The SCN has the 10th best L1 record at home thanks to five wins in eleven games (3n-3d).

Bordeaux have lost six of their twelve games played away from Gironde this season in L1.

The SCR had imposed unbelievable in Bordeaux to the alller (0-3).

RC Strasbourg – Bordeaux: Soccer Prediction

Bordeaux is seen a bit too good by the bookmakers after his success against OL. Inconstant and still very tender defensively far from Gironde, the Navy and White could well fall high in Alsace, facing a formation that has made its collective force majeure. The RCS would not be in its first big match this season at the Meinau: we try a victory for the Alsatians!


Prediction Today: RC Strasbourg wins
Odds: 3.1
