Lausanne has deep problems now. With only 5 rounds before the end they reached the last place. A real nightmare for them. The very poor form of 2018 is the one that brought them here. Only one victory and 3 draws vs. 8 defeats are disappointing numbers.
The end of the season is thrilling in the second part of the standings. No less than 5 teams (Lausanne, Sion, Lugano, Grasshoppers and Thun) will fight to avoid the last position.
Lausanne’s home matches were almost always opportunities for bets on goals this season. With an average of 3.5 goals per game and a statistic that Lausanne has received at least one goal in all matches played at home, we show this. And I do not see why things would be different in this match. Guests are also in a delicate situation. With two confrontations that can cause great difficulty, today with Lausanne and next stage, traveling with Thun. Another direct battle. Especially if they miss this first match.
Ingolstadt II is currently on a very bad dynamic with 3 consecutive defeats in progress. The chances of finishing on the podium are now far away … Ingolstadt is 5th in the standings, ranked 2nd best team in away matchs with 9 wins, 2 draws and 5 defeats. They have the average of 1.20 goal conceded per match and 2 goals scored. Eichstatt must continue to take a maximum of points, despite their 8th place in the standings, they are still 6 points from the first place of the relegation. Their dynamic is excellent: only 1 defeat on the last 8 games (5-0 vs 1860 Munchen). Eichstatt is ranked 9th best team at home with a record of 6 wins, 4 draws and 4 defeats, 28 goals scored for 20 conceded. Their average is 2 goals scored per game and 1.42 conceded per match.
It’s time for Ingolstadt to play away, after the last 3 games in the championship which were at home, all are sold by 3 losses (1-4/2-3/1-4). I imagine them very revengeful and determined to regain a taste for victory. They will put a lot of pressure on the local club and try to score as many goals as possible. Their away-record is exceptionnal for the moment.
Academica looks pretty close to direct promotion and come back into Primeira Liga. Hosts are recently far away with 3 less points above 2nd placed team of Santa Clara but with eventual win vs Porto B, can overcome and took that wished place on standing. After losing 3 close matches vs Arouca 1-0 on road, vs Oliveirense 0-2 at home and vs Nacional 1-0 on road, losing 2 derby matches, hosts had managed 2 straight wins vs Famalicao 1-2 and Real SC 1-0. This will be 2nd straight home game, regarding on current situation, home clashes are those must win once where need to collect points. The competition up-front is hard, many teams are sharing the some ambitions and are closely separated by only few points more or less.
Porto B are one of the teams which due league rules has no chance to qualify for promotion. Well knowed rule doesn’t undermiss their quality if we know exactly that Porto B is team based on less playable player from senior best squad and mix of young talents. But after all, I would say that visitors are not the one to bring problems, not at crucial part of the season. They had lost last home game vs Sporting B by 0-2.
Tours has already relegated to National. Costa had a word for the fans: “I think that the whole club, me first, we must apologize to them, even if it is not an easy moment.” Despite of no mission object still fight pride in every game, since tie against Bourg-Peronnas where were outplayed according to numbers by host (still defended 1:1) 102-29 in Dangerous Attacks and 27-3 Shots overall later gave level or even better performance for example lost to Chateauroux 0:1 but had 70-55 Dangerous Attacks & 8-7 Shots, the same with Ajaccio, again defeated but after fair fight. In all those games always recorded low than 10 corners.
For the first time in 63 years, Lillestrøm and Ranheim meet for a new series match. That is really worth to point out transformation from amature team to mayube not top but member of Eliteserien league.Home side used to generate a lot of corners in past season and as 5 rounds beghind us Lillestrom contiunne high streak; took 1-9 agains Kloftka in a Cup, concede 9 and won 4 against Molde and so on.
Visitors are an offensive team and play a little risk. As far, always create couple 12 for instance vs Kvik in a Cup, 0-8 ck over Sandefjord. All other numbers oscylite around 9-10 in total.
In nutshell line 9.5 is too short, other ties is set on 10.0/10.5 line.
Rijeka could decide on the champion by the end of the HNL there were only six more rounds, while Rijeka, Osijek, and especially Dinamo and Hajduk offered us a unknown finish that nobody expected a few months ago. Osijek with chance to steal podium still have to fight for. In general term Rijeka is that team which you can trust in order to bet of corners. Unfortunately there is limited option for Croatian football and only during a in-play markets we can get race to x corners which might be profitable in this case. You could find various result in past weeks since HNK Rijeka played 5 matches away from home in a row. At home turf used to be regular and pointing out their rival by corner kicks. Won;t be surprised if Osijek concede again huge amount of corners like Dinamo did in last round (14-1).
After two defeats in a row, at home against Yeovil (an ugly one) and on the road to Notts County, players of Coventry managed to bounce back with a better performance on the road to Crawley Town last Saturday evening. It was important three pointer with a 1:2 result that kept them in the play-off race for now.
They have entered the game very strongly, taking the lead in fifth minute already with a goal from Ponticelli. Hosts responded within next minutes thanks to Young, but should be said that the players of Coventry remained being better. As the time progressed they improved and increased pressure, deserving another leading goal from Ponticelli fifteen minutes before the end.
It was their first victory after three rounds, as the side now stands at seventh position and have just a point more than out of play-off zone placed Mansfield, meaning that a victory here is their only target.
Coventry should play in 4-3-3 formation with Ponticelli, McNulty and Clarke-Harris as forwards. Offensive midfielder Jodi Jones (19/5) is injured, same as long term absentee offensive Tony Andreu (5/0). Their coach probably won’t change much for this one.
I am going to predict that there will be more than 10 corners in the game that faces Ajax and VVV, numbers overall, recent fun of both camps suggest that in tradition manner and consistency line of 10 has big chance to be crossed today.
9/15 line of 9 ck reached by Ajax in current campaign gives average 10.6 comparing to VVV is 10.42. After defeat to PSV strong reaction is expected.
Schalke did really well last time out in front of own fans as the team defeated Dortmund with a 2:0 result last Saturday afternoon. They were slightly better in the first halftime and maybe looked just bit more dangerous, taking the lead in 50th minute thanks to a goal from Konoplyanka.
From that moment on, players of Dortmund had complete control over the ball and have created chances, while Schalke stood satisfied with the current result and tried to defend their lead. However, just when Dortmund was attacking the most, Schalke scored their second goal, in 82nd minute via Naldo to seal the three pointer.
With this victory, Schalke is now second at the table with four points more than Leverkusen and Dortmund and now they look almost as sure participant of Champions League knowing that they have eight points more than Leipzig.
Burgstaller should lead their attack in 3-4-2-1 formation together with Goretzka and Harit as offensive midfielders. Central defender Matija Nastasic (24/0) is injured. Forward Breel Embolo (20/2) is doubtful for this clash.
Rapperswil Jona welcomes Winterthur in the last match of the 28`th round of the Challenge league. Things are already decided in the league and teams don`t play for much but for a better position. Rapperswill Jona was barely in contention this season but for a new team in the league they are so good. With a win in this round they would be 4`th with just 2 points behind third place and 3 behind second place. That is just amazing and I have confidence they are gunning for that. Their form has been outstanding in spring and Jona has lost just once in the last 8 matches. That was against the leaders Xamax while they really raised their game on home ground. All together Rapperswill Jona is wicked at home having 8-4-2 and 28:12 gd with also the best home defense. Form is excellent here with 5 wins from the last 6 and only high flying Will managed to stay undefeated taking a 1:1 draw.
