Liverpool will face Everton in the semifinal match of the FA Cup. The winner of this fight will face the winner of the match Chelsea-Tottenham. Liverpool disappointed their fans straight season and played very mediocre and for the second consecutive year, remain outside the top 4. As a small consolation to the fans and apology may serve eventually winning the second trophy. Certainly, if it won the FA Cup, the season will be defined as a disappointment. Although the site outside the top four Liverpool could have two trophies in the asset and to remember that a good campaign. Many unevenness team of Kenny Dalglish and they come all the problems. Also, “red” from “Liverpool” make many gaps that their bones very valuable points. In tournament battles this season they are at. In his past four matches in the FA Cup marked a total of 15 hits, and in this respect is one of the highest-scoring teams. Everton also performs quite solid, but was about to “fly out” from the race after its “Goodison Park” draw with Sunderland. However, the replay was won 2-0 and “drive” continued. When it comes to such a derby can always expect everything. Except in this battle, these two teams are involved in another. Many now believe that it is unimportant, but when it comes to Liverpool and Everton, always matters. That battle is who among the two teams will finish ahead in the Premier League. I think a class footballers are those of Liverpool. Moreover, they are far more experienced. Much of Liverpool’s players have played in matches of this kind, and certainly it would be good. I think Liverpool will play a very intense meeting “Wembley” and will qualify for the finals after playing more regular time. The motivation of the “red” will be very serious and they will greet success.
Blackpool and West Ham face each other at “Wembley” in the final playoff entry in the Premier League. “Mandarins” ended the regular season ranked fifth in the Championship with his 75 points, reached twenty wins, fifteen draws and eleven losses and goal difference 79:59. In their last five league matches “mandarins” recorded two wins and three draws. The semifinals Blackpool managed to eliminate tough team to Birmingham after a minimum of 1-0 “Bluumfiyld Road” and ravensvo 2-2 away to “St. Andrews”. Ian Holloway is expected to be able to rely on all their players for this crucial season-long team collisions. Almost throughout the campaign, West Ham was on one of the top two spots in the standings, giving the right to direct promotion to the Premier League, but ultimately finished 3rd in the standings with 86 points in their asset earned after twenty-four wins, fourteen losses and eight draws, with goal difference 81:48. In their last five league matches boys Sam Allardyce recorded five wins. The semifinals ‘hammers’ stood against Cardiff City after a 2-0 success as guests and classic 3-0 victory at home to qualify for the finals. It should be noted that West Ham remained a huge part of their core players and attracted some classrooms completed by Kevin Nolan and have a width in its composition. Sam Allardyce will be able to rely on the best, which has after all already injured players heal their injuries. Here are the expected compositions of both teams. For West Ham are expected to start the game: Robert Green, Matthew Taylor, James Tomkins, Winston Reid, Guy Demel, Jack Collison, Mark Noble, Kevin Noble, Gary O’Neill, Carlton Cole and Ricardo Vaz Them. For Blackpool meeting will start: Matthew Dzhilks Neil Eardli, Stephen Crane, Alex Baptiste, Ian Evat, Angel Martinez, Stephen Dobby, Barry Ferguson, Gary Taylor-Fletcher and Thomas Ince. Expect to witness a very qualitative and controversial collision in which I think with most of his experience and class West Ham will be able to defeat the ambitious team of Blackpool and will be back in the Premier League.
Tottenham accept Chelsea in the FA Cup 1/2-final . The hosts came here after having removed Cheltenham 3-0, 1-0 Watford, Stevenage followed by equality and a victory for “spurs” in the second meeting. On 1/4-final Spurs game against Bolton, the first match was abandoned due to poor state of Fabrice Mwambo, the latter as ‘Spurs’ 3-1 victory and came here. Premier League team of Harry Redknapp is the fourth position with his 59 points, tied with those of Newcastle. In their last five games have two wins, two draws and one loss. Chelsea did come here after they removed after 4-0 against Portsmouth 1-0 against QPR. The next meeting of the “blue” finished 1-1 with Birmingham, but pobedoha replay 2-0 and went ahead. On 1/4-final beat Leicester 5-2 and came here. Premier League are at the sixth position, two points behind Tottenham and Newcastle, and will fight all the way to enter the top four and play in the Champions League next year. In their last five games with four wins and one draw. We expected an interesting match in which I think Chelsea will win or would be wise to at least equality
Chelsea host Tottenham in derby match of 30th round of the Premier League. This match will be crucial for both teams, they will struggle to get into the top 4 and they can play in the Champions League next year. Chelsea is in fifth position with 49 points scored after 14 wins, 7 draws and 8 losses and goal difference 49:34. “Blue” were the only English team in European competition, having qualified for the Champions League 1/4-final. In their last five games with four wins and one loss. “Spurs” are even in the fourth position with 54 points scored after 16 wins, 6 draws and 7 losses and 53:35 goal difference, but lately seen a decline in their form. In their last five games have one win, one draw and three losses. We expected a real collision, which I think Chelsea led by Roberto Di Matteo will continue its criminal action and will win.
Manchester City accepts Chelsea in the most interesting match of 29th round in the Premier League. The derby between two teams will play on the pitch at the stadium “Etihad Stadium” in Manchester on Wednesday (3/21/2012)
Manchester City conceded an embarrassing 1-0 loss to the minimum in his visit to the humble in Swansea last weekend and thus step aside for first place in the Premier League of its city rival Manchester United. So after a long period, during which students of Italian manager Roberto Mancini were leaders in the standings, just before the end of the season appear in catching up. Now led by his team ranked second in the table, with a total of 66 points, achieved with 21 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses, with goal difference 69-20. Difference to their temporary leader of the United swelled to four points, but “citizens” have a game fewer than his opponent, so have the opportunity to reduce their predinata only one point after izigraveneto a pending match. For the hard derby against Chelsea coach guide the hosts could not rely on the injured Vincent Kompany and Pablo Zabaleta. Remains questionable and treating injuries involving Gareth Barry, Joleon Lescott and, as they are likely to fall among the elect Roberto Mancini. In the upcoming match with “blue” in London is expected in the composition of Manchester City to come back and kicked nearly half a year striker Carlos Tevez.Personally City manager Roberto Mancini said he thinks the chance to give the 28-year-old striker, who has not played for his team in September last year when miff with his mentor after she refused to heat to enter the field against Bayern(Munich) in the match of the Champions League. So after nearly a half year absence from the first team, Tevez joining their training process saobtornitsi and even expected to hit the field against Chelsea.
Chelsea marked a considerable progress in their performances, having parted with the Portuguese coach Andre-Viyash Boash and his place was temporarily appointed Italian Roberto Di Matteo. It led the “blue” from London reached four consecutive victories in their last four matches in all competitions, particularly noteworthy was beating Napoli 4-1 in a Champions League match, thereby Londoners failed to qualify for quarterfinals race. The championship of England, Roberto Di Matteo has also started with a victory, scoring success with minimum 1-0 in their household of Stoke City and continues to battle with Arsenal for fourth place in the Premier League. Chelsea team now ranked fifth in the table and three points behind the “Gunners” who occupy the last place entitling participation in the strongest European club tournament Champions League. Grade of “blue” is now 49 points, achieved with 14 wins, 7 draws and 7 losses, with goal difference 48-32. For the upcoming heavy visit of Manchester City coach guide the guests there are no problems with his staff and will be able to choose from all the best for the derby with “citizens”. With problems in the camp guests are only two main central defenders John Terry and David Lewis, but their injuries are not serious and will be in line ahead of the derby against Manchester City. Over the weekend the team played for Chelsea and their quarterfinal match of the FA Cup, which imposed a categorical 5-2 over the team of Lester and thus qualified for the semifinals of the competition. This match will be remembered with two goals from Spanish striker Fernando Torres, who ended the run of 1541 minutes without a goal scored by the team of Chelsea.
Before the host Manchester City have no other choice than victory in a match against Chelsea if they want to stay in title game in England. Indications that Roberto Mancini is ready to bet on this match and Carlos Tevez, clearly show the intention of the hosts to fight hard for first place in the Premier League. On his “Etihad” this season in England, “citizens” are one hundred percent asset as of 14 matches they have 14 wins, which have made the 42 hits, while have allowed only 6 goals in its network. I expect that this winning streak can be maintained after the derby against Chelsea.
Juventus meet Italian champions AC Milan in the semifinal game of revenge Cup in Italy. The derby between two teams will play on the pitch at the stadium “Juventus Stadium” in Turin on Tuesday (3/20/2012)
Juventus 2-1 victory achieved in the first game between two teams played at the stadium “San Siro” in Milan and largely secure qualification for the finals in the competition. Despite this negative result, however, unlikely team of Milan made peace with the loss and try to overpower the hosts, more so than advance a goal of “Bianconeri” is not so great. Except in the Cup of Italy, both teams lead fierce battle for the title in Serie A, where at that time, “Milan” is ahead of its rival. Long time club Juventus was a leader in the standings in the Italian Serie A, but with four draws in their last five league games, alumni coach Antonio Conte gave leadership to their opponent from Milan. So at this stage of the championship team Juve took second place in the table, with a total of 56 points, achieved with 14 wins, 14 draws and still no loss in goal difference 44-17. Over the weekend, “Bianconeri” interrupted the run of four consecutive draws, scoring victory defeated 5-0 in his visit of Fiorentina. For the upcoming match against AC Milan coach guide the hosts in the face of coach Antonio Conte, there are almost no problems with his staff, so you can rely on all the best from his team for the upcoming semifinal rematch.
Milan admit defeat in the first game and will definitely be tough to be able to compete for the final standings. For the “Rossoneri” priority meetings are from Serie A, which currently are leaders in the standings, as well as Champions League, where the draw for the quarterfinals was not at all agreeable to them, sending them against this nostitel trophy Barcelona. Thus, the Coppa Italia, as if still in the background at the expense of other tournaments where the players of coach Massimiliano Allegri have far greater chances of success. The championship of Italy, the Milan team managed to pull four points clear of their rivals Juventus, scoring his fourth victory in their last five league games, defeated 2-0 in his visit to Parma over the weekend. Thus the “Rossoneri” gathered in their asset 60 points, achieved with 18 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses, with goal difference 57-22. For the upcoming visit of severe Juventus, AC Milan coach owner continues to have many problems with injuries to some of the major players of the team. The latest data from the camp of the guests, the fight with “binakonerite” will be missed by Brazilian forward Robinho, German midfielder Alexander Merkel defender Inyatsio Abbot and striker Antonio Cassano. With injuries are also Clarence Seedorf, Alberto Aquilani, Gennaro Gattuso, Maxi Lopez, Alessandro Nesta and Kevin-Prince Boateng, who participated in the morning workout on his team, but hardly Massimiliano Allegri will risk to their inclusion in games against Juventus .
Hosted by Juventus lag of four points in the battle for Milan in Serie A Scudetto, so for them the Coppa Italia is an excellent opportunity to win a trophy this season.In this campaign, Juve still does not know the taste of loss, but “Rossoneri” are a team that should not be underestimated in any situation. However, for them is far more important matches, such as league and Champions League, so it’s hardly approach a serious look at the forthcoming visit of the “Bianconeri”. The hosts in turn are in series of three consecutive victories over his opponent and now the middle of Turin forward again triumphed with the victory, moreover, unlike AC Milan, Juventus team has no problems with his staff while in camp their opponents continue to experience serious difficulties with the many injured futblisti.
Chelsea meet Napoli in a match of revenge 1/8-finalite the Champions League. The first match ended 3-1 in favor of neapollitantsite. The hosts made a bad season, a 5 th place in England, with poor results led to the expulsion of Andre-Viyash Boash. The new coach Roberto Di Matteo started with two wins, one against Birmingham in the FA Cup 1/8-finalite 2-0 and the other – against Stoke City 1-0. Chelsea reached 1/8-finalite little difficult after three wins, two draws and one loss, first in the group, point to Bayer Leverkusen. Naples is located at 4 th place in Italy. It went very tough group in the Champions League by finishing second in front of many millions selection behind Manchester City and Bayern Munich. Neapolitans showed a great game and I think Chelsea will hardly allow a goal from Cavani and Lavezzi, but the “blue” will win the match and the number of goals they will be more than the Italians.
Dutch giants Ajax will face this English champion Manchester United in arguably the most interesting clash of 1/16-final of the Europa League. For many, this match was supposed to be in the Champions League, but now both teams after dropping his then were forced to settle for second-highest European club tournament. The match between two of the greatest teams in Europe will be played on the pitch at the stadium “Amsterdam Arena” on Thursday.
Ajax dropped extremely ridiculous Champions League, finishing third in their preliminary group. Dutch team only needed a point in their last match at home to Real Madrid to secure visas for the second round in the strongest European club tournament, or at least allow minimal loss. Ultimately, however, “Ajax” recorded with the classic 3-0 defeat of “white ballet” and so were displaced from the second position of the French city of Lyon, only on goal difference. For the upcoming clash with Manchester United, Ajax coach leadership in the face of coach Frank de Boer, could not rely on one of its main pillars in defense Andre Oyer. Veteran in the ranks of Ajax treat injury and will not be available to his mentor. So security issues shaft of the Dutch team grow more, since Gregory van der Bel will be online for the upcoming match is expected to place his right-back to take a young Dick Kopers. In midfield the hosts problems also are not at least as questionable for the derby with Manchester United goals are three players – Theo Jansen, Eyong Eno and Derk Borigter. In the attack of Ajax, with problems and Kolbeyn Sigtorson Icelander whose participation in the upcoming match will be decided shortly before the meeting begins.
Manchester United rather surprisingly dropped from the tournament of champions after being displaced from the second position in the final standings of Group C by the Swiss Basel. So for the first time in almost twenty years ago, “Red Devils” will play a match in European tournaments, but not in the Champions League and Tournament Europa League. For recent graduates of Sir Alex Ferguson played in this race in 1995 when the tournament is still wearing the name UEFA Cup as one of the team in the composition of the United remained the only Welsh veteran Ryan Giggs and former England international Paul Scholes. Giggs will not be able to take part in the upcoming match against Ajax, as he, Dimitar Berbatov and Patrice Evra, never fell into the group match against the Dutch. Obviously the manager of the guests decided to give them a break, given the approaching decisive battles for the title in the Premier League. Besides them, the fight against Ajax will be skipped and permanently injured Darren Fletcher, Michael Owen, Nemanja Vidic, Andres Lindegard and Anderson. However, in the “Red Devils” have returned fully recovered Nani, Phil Jones and Tom Cleverley. At issue remains the sole Chris Smalling, and just before the match will decide whether to take part in the meeting.
Home-field advantage on the side of Ajax, but the Dutch team is far from what horror twenty years ago. Their form in the last few meetings did not bode well for students of Frank de Boer, which allowed the losses in their last two games at home. Although unlikely to approach very seriously matches from UEFA Cup, guests definitely remain a favorite in this match, I expect to leave with the victory of the stadium “Amsterdam Arena”.
In an interesting meeting of 23 round of Premier League club Bolton meet Arsenal in a dispute over the three points. Both teams know each other so well and so far have played over 30 matches in various tournaments. In most of them winning is Arsenal, he was nominated for favorite in today’s meeting. This “saying” all bookmakers in the world, have a coefficient of 1.6 to 1.8 for the guests. The hosts are doing very well lately, beating Everton in their field and team Liverpool. I will certainly impede the young and insecure at times Arsenal team. For Bolton is expected to start as a holder and the Bulgarian international Martin Petrov, who is in great shape. At the last meeting of the stadium of Bolton, they beat Arsenal 2-1 to the minimum and presented very well. In the team returned the legend Thierry Henry, who giving impetus to other players and no doubt his presence has a positive influence. “Gunners” are a few points from fourth place, just as against such teams must win to not depart from it. I think particularly in this match they will not have much trouble and will win.
Aston Villa taking in “Villa Park” Queens Park Rangers in a match of 22nd round of the Premier League. The hosts are 11th in the standings with 27 points in their asset achieved six wins, nine draws and seven losses, with goal difference 26:29. Overall performance of boys Alex McLean at home so far this season has three wins, three draws and five losses, when goal difference 12:14. In Aston Villa last weekend made, difficult but crucial away win of the Wolves 3-2, doing a full twist from 1:2 to 3:2. Injured in the composition of the hosts are Eric Lecah, Jermaine Jenas, Chris Hurd and Emile Heskey. QPR is located at 16th place in the standings with 20 points in their asset achieved after five wins, five draws and twelve losses, goal difference 22:37. The presentation of the boys of Mark Hughes as guests until the season is three wins, one draw and seven losses, with goal difference 10:19. In the last round Queens Park Rangers recorded an important 3-1 win against Wigan, which is their direct competitor in the battle for survival. Absent due to various injuries guests are Alejandro Faurlin, Kieran Dyer and Rob Hals, but Daniel Gabidon expected to return to composition after cure his injury. Expect to witness an interesting and challenging game, which I think Aston Villa will be able to win tough but deserved victory and will be strengthened in the top ten ranking.
