St Gilloise comes from a very interesting game and a 3:3 draw at home against Mouscron, even though they had the double lead in the last first thirty minutes. The side now has four points less than Kortrijk and this game comes as the last chance for them.
Kortrijk comes from impressive performance away from home in a 5:0 victory against Waregem. However, must be said that their hosts stood playing with a man less since the tenth minute and it was extremely easy for anyway in-form Kortrijk to dominate in this one.
Ingolstadt managed to find their best possible form when it was needed the most. The side comes from a 3:0 victory over promotion battling HSV on the road and are looking more of a promotional material side than few others.
Anyhow, they now have three victories and a win is a priority for this one as well.
Darmstadt is in a fine form now also, just in time to avoid any kind of relegation battle problems. Thanks to three victories in the last four rounds, the side is at the tenth position and can’t be pulled down into the relegation problems again.
After four consecutive victories in Bundesliga and a Champions League spot secured, RB Leipzig had a 3:3 draw away to Mainz last weekend.
It was a wide-open game from the first minute, as the guests had the double, however, also lowered down the tempo in the second half in quite an equal game. The side is third on the table without much chances to move to the second place.
Bayern Munich isn’t playing the best football of the season, however luckily for them, neither their closest followers from Dortmund do.
St Etienne now comes from the fourth consecutive victory, as the side has won over Monaco away from home 3:2. They were early back in the scoreline but have completely reverted the game in their favor in the second half.
The side continues to impress in attack as they now have just a point less than Champions League placed Lyon.
Montpellier was quite a favorite in front of own fans against Amiens, and have looked a bit better but still back in the scoreline and couldn’t revert the game completely in a 1:1 game.
In the last round of Denmark’s 1st Division Viborg will host Fredericia.
Viborg is doing good job for promotion, they are 2nd currently and will play in promotion play-offs if finish second in the end. There are 4 matches to go and they have 4 points less from Silkeborg which will promote directly to Superliga. Viborg made their first home win after unlucky run of 1 defeat and 3 straight draws, at home ground they have 6 wins, 6 draws and 2 loses this season.
Fredericia is 5th on table with 43 points, 5 points less than promotion play-offs zone. They have won only 2 of their last 6 league matches (1 draw and 3 loses). Fredericia need at least 3 more wins in next 4 matches for promotion play-offs and they showed some will for that in their last 2 wins when both times opposite teams got red card, they obviously have that formula for making opponent players angry..
My match for today comes from Norway, between Ham Kam and Sogndal. After 5 rounds, the home team has won 1 match, drawn in 1, and lost in 3, and currently sits in the 12th position of the table. Ham-Kam recently lost to Sandness at home in a 2-3 score line.
After 5 rounds, the guests have won 1 match, drawn in 1, and lost in 3, and currently sits in the 13th position of the league table. They managed a 5:0 win in the Norwegian Cup against Stryn, but got a 1:3 beating from Aalesund, although this was expected as Aalesund is placed first in the table.
Esbjerg now got into a really nice form, winning three out of last four rounds and being undefeated in the last five matches. They come from a 1:0 victory away to Brondby scoring a goal in a very late phase of the clash.
The team got awarded for their spirit, however, were also lucky as Brondby missed some decent chances including a penalty kick. The side is now four points above the fourth-placed Odense.
Norsdjaelland now has no victory in the last six rounds, coming from second consecutive defeat last time out at home against Midtjylland in a 1:2 game.
They have taken the lead first, but looked more passive and weaker in the second halftime, without many chances created later on. The side sits now on the sixth position without much of competitive motive trying to build up the team for the future without much pressure.
In Championship last round, Aston Villa will host Norwich on Villa Park, Birmingham.
Aston Villa secured their promotion play-offs in 10 consecutive wins this season, they made stunning performance in that time beating whoever it was on their way. They had chance to make history but Leeds ruined it when the final scored finished draw (1-1), though it was fair play from Leeds that they let AV players to equalize after they didnt kicked the ball out of field when AV player was injured.
Another League One clash for me on Saturday. This game will be played at ABAX Stadium and will kick off at 17:30 UK time. The game will be between Peterborough United and Burton Albion.
The home side are really pushing for the play-off places, only Peterborough can catch 6th placed Doncaster Rovers.They are just 1 point behind with a far worse goal difference so know that only a win will give them a chance for a playoff place.
Peterborough head into the game in high spirits as they beat playoff placed Portsmouth 3-2 away from home.
It was a late goal from Ivan Toney that secured all 3 points for the Posh. This was a huge result and gave them a fighting chance.
Bielefeld comes from a very difficult visit against Duisburg, a team that had to play with all of their competitive motives, in a 2:2 clash. They had the lead twice, but simply couldn’t keep up the result and it was difficult playing with a man less in the last twenty-five minutes.
Paderborn now comes from the third consecutive victory, as they won at home against Heidenheim 3:1. They looked more dominant, especially in the second part when all the goals were scored, as the side now looks really confident.
