Bolton vs. Norwich Betting Tips 16/02/2019

The last match ended for both teams their previous series. While the hosts were able to celebrate their first success after six winless games in the championship and the FA Cup by winning at Birmingham City, Norwich conceded after five unbeaten rounds in the league a bankruptcy – this lost the canaries with 1: 3 at Preston North End. A defeat that cost them the championship lead. Notable was the failure of Mario Vrančić in midfield, whose offensive impulses were missing in the team. The 29-year-old midfielder can not play in the upcoming match due to an injury.

Football Betting Tips Bolton vs. Norwich

Bolton gave the victory in Birmingham a few days ago, again, new hope in the relegation battle. Nevertheless, the bookmakers look at Bolton vs Norwich according to odds the guests as favorites. The Betting Base Tip agrees with this assessment, but goes one step further. This is how Bolton vs. Norwich’s prediction in the direction that the guests in the first half set the course in the direction of an away win. This is supported by the fact that Bolton ran behind in the 50th out of 16 home games at the break and the guests are still the strongest away team in the championship despite the recent defeat.

Bolton – Statistics & Current Form

The Trotters could not shorten the distance to the saving shore by the surprising victory in Birmingham for the time being, as Reading also won, but of course the points are extremely important anyway. The morale of coach Philip Parkinson’s squad had been badly hit by four defeats and one draw. However, the success can be described in terms of game shares rather than happy triumph.

In the upcoming match, the Whites go down as the worst home team, which so far shot only ten goals in front of their own backdrop – absolute low in the championship! The attack is undoubtedly the biggest shortcoming this season. Strikers like Josh Magennis or Sam Ameobi have not met in weeks. Significantly, Birmingham’s winning goal came from a Callum Connolly defensive midfielder who came from Wigan Athletic in the summer and celebrated his first goal success with the four-time FA Cup winner.

In addition, with the Dutchman Yanic Wildschut remains a striker from injury. However, the new signing from Cardiff could not meet the expectations with just two goals in 16 league appearances. The weak overall balance at the Macron Stadium has recently improved slightly. Bolton won in the past five home games a win against Rotherham United and two draws against Stoke City and Reading. The names of the clubs, however, make it clear that the points were only drawn against clubs that are located even in the lower midfield of the table or even in the table cellar. Obviously, in spite of the tender hope little plant speaks at Bolton vs Norwich, the odds to win the home win in the eye.

Expected formation of Bolton:
Matthews – Olkowski – Wilson – Wheater – Beevers – Noone – O’Neil – Lowe – Connolly – Magennis – Donaldson

Last matches from Bolton:

  • 12.02.2019 – Birmingham City vs. Bolton Wanderers 0: 1 (Championship)
  • 09.02.2019 – Bolton Wanderers vs. Preston North End 1: 2 (Championship)
  • 02.02.2019 – Sheffield United Vs. Bolton Wanderers 2: 0 (Championship)

  • 25.01.2019 – Bristol City Vs. Bolton Wanderers 2: 1 (FA Cup)

Norwich – Statistics & Current Form

While the Bolton Wanderers are the worst home team, Norwich City has the strongest away record in the championship: the team of German coach Daniel Farke has scored seven wins and draws each. On the last match day, however, it put the second season bust in the foreign. A defeat that was unnecessary: ​​After all, Norwich gave no less than ten direct shots, while the opponent Preston North End only four times targeted the box directly. In the end it was still 3: 1 for the Lilywhites. The picture fit that Norwich did not turn a penalty.

How strong the team is actually out of town, it proved only at the beginning of the month, when Norwich prevailed in Leeds 3-1, which now passed by the canaries in the table and took the lead. Although they lacked the necessary efficiency before last Wednesday’s goal, the offense is usually very reliable: with 61 goals, they have the second-best yield to West Bromwich Albion and with Finn Teemu Pukki the second-highest scorer in the championship in their ranks , The new signing of Bröndby IF is 21 goals this season and has always set on the last five matchdays. In his already sixth club station in the course of his career, formerly even at FC Schalke 04 or Celtic under contract, the 28-year-old attacker seems to feel very comfortable. Painful, however, is the failure of Mario Vrančić. The Bosnian will not run aground due to injury and is with seven goals not only the second best scorer at Norwich, but also as a provider (5) very important.

Expected lineup of Norwich:
Krul – Lewis – Godfrey – Carpenter – Aaron – Tettey – Trybull – Hernandez – Stiepermann – Buendia – Pukki

Last Games from Norwich:

  • 13.02.2019 – Preston North End vs. Norwich City 3: 1 (Championship)
  • 10.02.2019 – Norwich City vs. Ipswich Town 3: 0 (Championship)
  • 02.02.2019 – Leeds United Vs. Norwich City 1: 3 (Championship)

  • 1/18/2019 – Norwich City vs. Birmingham City 3: 1 (Championship)

Bolton vs. Norwich Direct Comparison & Stats Highlights

The match in the first half ended with a 3-2 win by Norwich, where the winning goal fell only in injury time by the mentioned very accurate Finnish attacker Pukki. For the time being last home game saw again a 2: 1 success of the Wanderers before, but previously pulled twice before home crowd against the runners-up. Also in the upcoming duel between Bolton and Norwich, the odds point towards an away win.

Bolton vs Norwich Best Bet of the Day

Bolton has won only two of their last 20 games in the championship, but one of those victories was on the final day in Birmingham. It was the team’s first away win since last August. Even though it was a lucky success, the Wanderers’ confidence has undoubtedly been good for them. At home, Bolton has been very weak so far – as harmless as any other team in the second British division. Only ten goals in 16 home games speak a clear language. However, at least five of the 13 home points so far have been collected in the last five home games, which is why there has been a small increase, although the counters were taken against teams from the bottom of the table.

Key Facts – Bolton vs Norwich tips

Bolton is the weakest home team (3-4-9) and Norwich the best away team (7-7-2)
Wanderers won 1-0 at Birmingham City on matchday one
Guests arrive in second place and second best in the championship

Norwich travel to the league’s strongest team. The defeat last Wednesday at the first English champions Preston North End ended a series of previously 13 away games without defeat. The injury of Mario Vrančić in midfield can be seen a weakening of the team, but compared to Bolton, the squad is still much better occupied. First and foremost, Teemu Pukki is in the lead, scoring in his most recent five appearances and the second-best scorer in the championship. At Bolton vs Norwich, the tip is therefore on a further away win the canaries. At Bolton vs Norwich, the prediction also provides that the guest is already in the lead at break time.

GAK vs. Austria Vienna Free Betting Tips 15/02/2019

Austrian football is finally waking up from hibernation this weekend. After Champions Red Bull Salzburg and SK Rapid Wien were already in action in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday evening, the four quarter-final games will be played in the Austrian Cup competition from Friday to Sunday. The first semi-finalist is determined in a duel between two traditional teams. Regional league GAK welcomes Austria Wien in the Merkur Arena!

GAK vs. Austria Vienna Free Betting Prediction

The decision of the Grazer not to play the Cup quarter-final in their own stadium, but in the stadium of the great arch rival has paid off. Just a few days before the duel over 10,000 tickets were sold for the game of the year of the red jackets. On loud support the league leaders of the Regionalliga Mitte can look forward to. The favorite role in this duel between the third division and the Bundesliga club is of course clearly on the side of violets from Vienna favorites. For an away win in the game between the GAK and Austria Vienna, the odds are at 1.36! The game starts on Friday evening at 7 pm.

GAK – Statistics & Current Form

For over a decade, the Grazer Traditionsverein has already disappeared from paid football. The financial difficulties were a constant companion at the GAK. However, good work has been done continuously in recent years and the return to paid football is imminent. As a climber, the Grazer dominate the regional league middle this season. After 15 of 30 league games, the Grazer have 35 counters and thus already comfortable seven-point advantage over the second-placed Deutschlandsberg. The new second division with 16 teams is close enough to touch. In the last days and weeks the course has been set for a successful licensing. With the 44-year-old Enrico Kulovits, a new coach has been presented, which has the necessary license. The former successful coach David Preiß is not in possession of the UEFA Pro license and acts in the future as a “team coach”, official coach is the former professional Kulovits.

“For me it is a great honor and a matter of the heart to be able to return to my GAK and make my contribution to the success. I have the utmost respect for David’s achievement. He is one of the most successful coaches in Austria and I am looking forward to working together in the coaching team ” – Enrico Kulovits

For the new coach, the GAK is a matter of the heart. The squad was reinforced in the past transfer window with the former Bundesliga player Thomas Zündel (right-back). Thus are already four ex-Bundesliga players in the squad of the Styrians. Dieter Elsneg, probably the most well-known actor, falls out due to a cruciate ligament rupture for the cup hit against the violets, however. On the way to the last eight last second division Kapfenberg was defeated in the Styrian derby sovereign 3-0. The game against the violets but is due to the appointment of a Herculean task. The last competitive game was played on 4 November, the next competitive game is on 9 March on the program. The Graz are in the middle of the preparation and have lost the first two test matches against Lafnitz and Kapfenberg (both second division) without scoring. Accordingly, in the match between the GAK and Austria Vienna, the tip that not both teams to score (odds of 2.00) could well be an interesting option.

Expected list of GAK:
Halder – Derrant, Count, Pfeifer, Zündel – Prattes, Perchtold – Kiric, Bauer, Berger – Rother

Last Games by GAK:

  • 09.02.2019 – Kapfenberg vs. Grazer AK 1: 0 (friendly)
  • 02.02.2019 – Lafnitz Vs. Grazer AK 2: 0 (friendly)
  • 04.11.2018 – Stadl-Paura vs. Grazer AK 2: 4 (Regionalliga)
  • 01.11.2018 – Grazer AK vs. Kapfenberg 3: 0 (Cup)

Austria Vienna – Statistics & Current Form

In the calendar year 2018, the violets had to cope with many setbacks, but the last competitive game in the old year could not have gone better. In the prestigious Wiener Derby, the violets celebrated an impressive 6-1 victory against the archrival. Balm on the wounds, after first missed the Europa League and subsequently did not convince the violets in the new twelve-league. Four laps before the end of the basic round, Vienna Austria is in fifth place in the table. This gives the Violets a four-point lead in the fight for a place in the championship play-off!

“I am very satisfied with the preparation. We have consistently enforced all content that we have set ourselves. However, it will be crucial that we implement it when it matters ” – Thomas Letsch

Head coach Thomas Letsch warned in the preparation not only once that the 6: 1 against Rapid must disappear from the heads. Although the results in preparation were changeable (defeat to Wiener Neustadt, Red Star Belgrade, victory over Dinamo Zagreb) Letsch was completely satisfied. Personnel hardly changed anything in the squad. The game philosophy will also be designed in 2019 very pressing. Only Red Bull Salzburg manages a faster ball capture after a ball loss than the violets (average 7.88 passes). However, the violets have to cope with the second most (!) Ball losses in the league. Often the violets act hastily and give the ball off lightly. As a result of the intensive pressing extremely much effort is operated, but the team often brings by the ball losses even for the pay of the work. Vienna Austria will have to act patiently against a third division and minimize these many unnecessary ball losses. The dress rehearsal succeeded with a 9-0 win against Traiskirchen – a team from the Regionalliga Ost – in an impressive manner. It will certainly not be as clear in the Merkur Arena on Friday. Nevertheless, between the GAK and Austria Vienna, a prediction on the favorites win fifth in the table of the Austrian Bundesliga obvious.

Expected formation of Austria Vienna:
Pentz – Ebner, Schoissengeyr, Madl, Klein – Jeggo – Matic, Grünwald, Sax – Monschein, Edomwonyi

Last matches of Austria Vienna:

  • 09.02.2019 – Austria Vienna Vs. Traiskirchen 9: 0 (friendly)

  • 25.01.2019 – Austria Vienna Vs. Dinamo Zagreb 2: 0 (Friendly Match)
  • 19.01.2019 – Austria Vienna Vs. Ried 3: 2 (friendly)

GAK vs. Austria Vienna Direct Comparison

The two traditional clubs have already played countless games against each other. However, these games are all back several years. For the last time the GAK and Austria Vienna faced each other in the Austrian Bundesliga in the 2006/07 season. Relevant for the Cup quarter-finals, the previous games between these two teams by no means.

GAK v Austria Austria Best Bet of the Day

Although the first Cup quarter-final includes two traditional teams, but still has to be classified in the category “David against Goliath”. The starting position is clear and a failure of the violets from Vienna favorites would be a great sensation. Although the GAK is certainly not an “ordinary third tier”, the difference in quality can not be denied. The offered odds between the GAK and Austria Vienna for a tip on the home win (8.00) are certainly set too low.

Key facts – GAK vs Austria Vienna tips

The GAK is in the middle of preparation – the first league match will take place on the 9th of March!
In the 2006/07 season, the two teams faced each other for the last time!

For some players of the GAK, this game will be the career highlight and the nervousness will certainly also play a role. In addition, the GAK is in the middle of preparation, while for Vienna Austria just now that is completed. Physically, the favorite will certainly be a bit further. Both a tip that does not hit both teams at least once as well as a handicap success of the favorite sounds extremely promising. The GAK has hardly scored chances in the two previous friendly matches, we expect a similar picture against the Vienna Austria. Accordingly, the choice fell in the cup hit between the GAK and Austria Vienna on the tip that not both teams to score.

FC Zurich vs. Napoli Free Betting Tips 14/02/2019

Some are pleased that they are in the semifinals of the Europa League, the others are a little disappointed that they were not allowed to overwinter in the premier class. For the first time, FC Zurich are in the round of the last 32 in this competition. The SSC Napoli, however, is the record holder in terms of participation in the semifinals in the Europa League. The Italians are there for the seventh time. And they would have gladly waived this record this year.
Napoli was the best third in the group stage of the Champions League and was eliminated only on the last matchday.

Europa League FC Zurich vs. Napoli

But the disappointment should now be overcome, because the Italians have the right stuff to even win the Europa League. Therefore, in the pairing between FC Zurich and Napoli, the prediction is also that the team of Carlo Ancelotti will progress one round. But we have to see how it looks in the first leg, because the SSC has not really performed successfully in Switzerland yet. If Napoli has relegated from the Champions League, but the Italians also often had problems to find their way in the second European league. Or maybe it’s actually a story of motivation. So far Napoli has progressed only twice in six participations in the sixteenth finals. This balance should now be improved. Even before the first leg between FC Zurich and Napoli, the odds made it clear that the bookmakers assume a victory for the Italians. We can also imagine this scenario, which would basically be equivalent to a preliminary decision in this duel. The first leg of the Europa League semi-final between FC Zurich and SSC Napoli in Letzigrund will take place on 14.02.2019 at 21:00.

FC Zurich – Statistics & Current Form

The Swiss Super League just returned from the winter break a week ago and started off with an English week – coach Ludovic Magnin made it clear in the first match against St. Gallen that he had awakened from hibernation, and he became one sent to the tribune. Other teams have an aggressive leader on the pitch, the FCZ has one on the bench. In the table FC Zurich is currently in fourth place and is thus in the midst of the fight for a renewed participation in the international business. However, the current form gives little reason to be optimistic, as Zurich have only won two of their last ten competitive matches. In the Europa League there has been no victory for three games and still it was enough for qualifying for the playoffs. But now it’s time to bring back victories, otherwise it will be difficult in the Super League to achieve the intended goals, and in the Europa League threatens otherwise the end.

Last weekend, however, there was an eminently important threesome in the league. The Zurich city derby against the Grasshoppers was on the program. It was a balanced game in which Levan Kharabadze put the FCZ early in the lead. The break was 1-1 and the Grasshoppers had more of the game.

“We are looking forward to the game. I cheered after the draw. I know that there are a lot of Napoli fans in Switzerland. ” – Ancillo Canepa

In the final phase Ludovic Magnin, who had to serve a suspension, was allowed to cheer. A goal from Andreas Maxsö and an own goal won the FCZ 3-1. The mood in the Derby is likely to be the right overture for the game against Napoli. President Ancillo Canepa is looking forward to seeing his opponent and sees this match as more of a football event than a sporting opportunity to move into the last sixteen. Ludovic Magnin has to give up in the first leg against the injured Becir Omeragic, Ilan Sauter, Pa Madou, Kevin Rüegg, Joel Untersee and Izer Aliu. Therefore, we expect a similar formation as last in the Derby.

Expected formation of FC Zurich:
Crushers – Maxsö, Bangura, Nef – Kryeziu, Domgjoni – Kharabadze, Winter, Marchesano – Odey, Kololli – Coach: Magnin

Last matches from FC Zurich:

  • 09.02.2019 – FC Zurich vs. Grasshoppers 3: 1 (Super League)
  • 06.02.2019 – St. Gallen Vs. FC Zurich 3: 1 (Super League)
  • 27.01.2019 – FC Zurich vs. Flora Tallinn 4: 1 (Friendlies)
  • 19.01.2019 – FC Zurich vs. Sebail 1: 1 (friendlies)
  • 18.01.2019 – CFR Cluj vs. FC Zurich 2: 1 (Friendlies)

Napoli – Statistics & Current Form

SSC Napoli has been the second force in Italy behind Juventus for several years now. That’s exactly what it looks like again this year. The runner-up and qualifying for the Champions League should be just a matter of form. After all, Napoli has a cushion of nine points in third place. Up to leader Juve but also missing already eleven counters. So everything is the same in the series A. Because the Coppa Italia for the team of Carlo Ancelotti also has already ended, Napoli could put more emphasis on the Europa League. After all, this is the only competition this year in which a title is still possible. The southern Italians have not presented themselves in the best shape in recent weeks. In the last four matches, it has only once been enough to win. Actually, a performance by SSC Napoli is always a spectacle when the three fast-paced attackers Jose Callejon, Dries Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne go steeply. But that does not happen so often. Therefore, we can imagine neglecting the odds on over goals in the duel between FC Zurich and Napoli.

Last weekend SSC Napoli did not manage to score. The team of Carlo Ancelotti had to compete in Florence and did not get beyond a 0-0 in a balanced game. Maybe that would also be a result, with which Napoli would not be dissatisfied on Thursday in the Europa League.

“Zurich are playing very well and have a good coach, Ludovic Magnin. But I think Napoli will do the best to win. ” – Carlo Ancelotti

However, Carlo Ancelotti makes it clear that he will play with his team already on victory, even if the respect for FC Zurich, of course, is present. However, there will be some staff building sites for the Italians. Mario Rui (thigh) and Simone Verdi (knee problems) have not started the trip to Switzerland as the long-term injured Amin Younes and Raul Albiol. Marek Hamsik is also facing a move to China and will also be out of the game.

Expected deployment of Napoli:
Meret – Ghoulam, Koulibaly, Maksimovic, Hysaj – Allan, Ruiz, Zielinski, Callejon – Mertens, Insigne – Coach: Ancelotti

Last matches of Napoli:

  • 09.02.2019 – Fiorentina Vs. Napoli 0: 0 (Serie A)
  • 02.02.2019 – Napoli vs. Sampdoria 3: 0 (Serie A)
  • 29.01.2019 – AC Milan vs. Napoli 2: 0 (Coppa Italia)
  • 26.01.2019 – AC Milan vs. Napoli 0: 0 (Serie A)
  • 20.01.2019 – Napoli vs. Lazio Roma 2: 1 (Serie A)

FC Zurich vs. Napoli Direct Comparison & Statistics Highlights

For the first time ever, FC Zurich and SSC Napoli will meet on Thursday. However, the Italians have crossed the blades six times with Swiss teams. It is striking that Napoli have never won or even scored in Switzerland. All in all, it’s enough for a draw. At least this black series could tear on Thursday, and in the duel between FC Zurich and Napoli a tip on an away win would probably even be the first choice.

FC Zurich vs. Napoli Football Betting Tips

FC Zurich could be in better form in the semi-finals of the Europa League before the first match. Two wins from the last ten competitive games are not exactly a source of encouragement that it will be better on Thursday just against the seemingly overpowering Napoli. In addition, Zurich has not won in the Europa League for three games. Napoli is not much better. In the last four matches, the team of Carlo Ancelotti has won only once. In addition, the Italians have never won in Switzerland and have never scored a goal in the Swiss. At first, it does not sound like a match between FC Zurich and Napoli would make sense for many goals.

Key facts – FC Zurich vs Napoli tips

In the last ten competitive games, there were only two wins for FC Zurich.
In the Europa League, the FC has been waiting for three games for a sense of achievement.
Napoli has only won one in their last four games.

But we think that Napoli has a lot more quality in the team. If the dangerous offensive trio is in a good mood, there is a lot to be said for an away win. Before the kick-off between FC Zurich and Napoli, odds of a maximum of 1.45 will be offered on a score victory. In it we just now recognize the value. Therefore, we would bet that Napoli will lay the foundation stone for the quarter-finals with a win in Zurich.
