Borussia Monchengladbach – Bremen Bundesliga 02.03.2018

Borussia Monchengladbach – Bremen  Bundesliga Prediction

Borussia Monchengladbach is coming back, and after a series of four consecutive defeats without a goal scored, “Manjii” managed to score 1-0 in Hannover in a match played and reintroduced into the cup race Europe. She is ranked 7th, with 34 points, having to recover at least four lengths to attack the Europa League, one of the goals that Dieter Hecking proposed when taking over Monchengladbach. One advantage would be playing at home, the place where Borussia gave a better return, contrary to the fact that it lost the previous two meetings. All four defeats suffered from this home came in front of a better-ranked team.

Borussia Monchengladbach: Sommer – Oxford; Ginter; Vestergaard; Elvedi – Hazard; Zakaria; Kramer; Hofmann – Bobadilla; Stindl

Heavy task for Bremen, the team that felt good in the last stages, but still a team remains in trouble, which now brings it to 14th place, with 26 points. In the previous round, the “white-greens” have shown a lot of determination when they dominated it from one end to the other in the Hamburger SV dispute. It was also the third success of the last four rounds, but as mentioned before, it remains engaged in the fight to avoid relegation, and the main issues being away. After 12 such matches, Bremen scored ten points, being one of the teams with the fewest goals scored. Of the six defeats in this position, five came in front of teams aspiring to the European Cups.

Bremen: Pavlenka – Selassie; Veljkovic; Moisander; Augustinsson – Eggstein; Bargfrede; Delaney – Junuzovic; Kruse; Kainz

Borussia Monchengladbach – Bremen Prediction

Both come after victory, but this time Monchengladbach seems to be advantageous, as shown by the odds listed by betting agencies. Being a team that performs better in home matches, Hecking’s band, despite the acquarters, has players of definite value, who can make the difference anytime, this being the main argument I believe and for which I expect to win the match on Friday in the evening.

Both teams want to get away from the red zone. No benefit in terms of motivation

After 3 consecutive Liga wins against Celta Vigo (2-1), Villarreal (1-2) and A Coruña (1-0), Alaves finally fell last weekend at Real Madrid (3-0) . Stopped in their tracks, the Basques remain stuck in 16th place, 9 lengths in front of the red zone.
Just behind 17th in this league, Levante has not won since 13 games and only one unit ahead of Las Palmas, 18th and 1st relegation. In total suffering, Giampaolo Pazzini’s teammates remain on 3 consecutive losses in the league, against Valencia (3-1), Real Sociedad (3-0) and Betis Sevilla last Monday (0-2). Light advantage Alaves on the form


Alaves can count on the return of his top scorer Munir (end of suspension). In contrast, the Wakaso, Vigaray and Litri (injured) cadres are still unavailable.
3 holders are absent for Levante: defender Postigo, middle Doukouré and striker Jason (injured). Little used this season, No. 2 goalkeeper Raul Fernandez, defender Ivan Lopez and striker Alegria are also stranded in the infirmary. Light advantage Alaves on paper

Prediction Today: victory of Alaves
Odds: 1.75



A match between two Ligue 1 teams closes the quarterfinal program of the 2017-2018 Coupe de France.

Lyon is showing unexpected difficulties in the league, where it has not won for five days, but has recently shown itself in the Europa League, a competition in which it has overcome the sixteenths in a brilliant way, thanks to a double success against Villarreal.

The Caen must fight for the permanence in the top flight of French football, is proving to have many limitations and has to deal with many problems of training. Romain Genevois, Damien Da Silva, Adama Mbengue, Vincent Bessat, Youssef Aït Bennasser and Jordan N’Kololo are not on the squad list, while Stef Peeters, Timo Stavitski and Enzo Crivelli – also in poor conditions – have been recovered in extremis and will probably start from the bench.

The hosts, in short, will struggle to find the right set-up and will presumably be struggled by Lyon, struggling only with the injuries of Mariano Diaz, Nabil Fekir and Rafael: they are certainly three important players, but Bruno Génésio can count a fairly large rose and should find appropriate solutions.

Recall the rules: in the event of a tie at the end of the regulatory time, you would go to extra time and possibly to penalties.

The probable formations of Caen-Lyon

CAEN (5-3-2): Samba; Guilbert, Sankoh, Djiku, Le Joncour, Armougom; Repas, Deminguet, Féret; Bazile, Santini.
LYON (4-2-3-1): Lopes; Tete, Marcelo, Morel, Mendy; Ndombele, Tousart; Traoré, Aouar, Depay; Gouiri.

Given the balance in the field and the result of the first leg, this seems to be the most uncertain and exciting semi-final. Lazio after a short period of decline in the game and in return has returned to play at high levels, taking in a few days the ball in the Europa League and Sassuolo in the league. The positive period of Milan is instead lasting longer and indeed the team coached by Gattuso improves from week to week, both on a physical and mental level. The way he took advantage of the current shortcomings of Rome Sunday evening was yet another demonstration.
The growth of Milan

Milan since Montella has been replaced by Gattuso has changed pace. Overcome the initial uncertainties and archived the fool remedies against Verona and Benevento, the team has gradually found its certainties. The 4-3-3 became the basic module and the coach was good thanks to simple concepts to find a game that can enhance the characteristics of its players.

At the center of the defense, Bonucci and Romagnoli have found a good understanding and have improved their personal performance compared to the first days in which they had committed gross errors. Bonaventura deployed from inside the midfield is back to be lethal with its insertions, the biggest job was the recovery of Suso and Calhanoglu. Deployed by attackers outside, they have the chance to get back on their favorite foot and try the distance shot with insistence. Or reward the overlaps of the full backs. In particular, Calabria in the offensive phase is playing great matches, culminating in the fantastic goal scored in Rome.

In the last few games Biglia has also played well, which has benefited from the major movements made by his team-mates. And he is scoring with great continuity Cutrone, but in this game he should start from the bench. Gattuso should prefer him to Kalinic, who played a good second half against Roma. If the Croat returns to play on levels more suited to him, Milan can take off a lot of satisfactions.
The fault of Lazio

It will be a very open game, balanced and therefore decided by the episodes. Milan have a small advantage over spending the turn against Lazio because of the result of the first leg (0-0). In the event of a tie with a goal, in fact, the Rossoneri would win the final. And Lazio, phenomenal when it attacks, not only on the counterattack, thanks to the imagination and technique of Milonkovic-Savic and Luis Alberto in the service of Immobile, but often commits serious errors at the defensive level. The occasions in which he manages to keep the inviolate door are rare. At Milan he has managed six times in the last seven official matches, and in the last twelve he has just had four goals.
The latest news on the formations

Neither Lazio nor Milan have particular training problems, and this time considering the importance of the stakes both coaches will send the owners to the field. Inzaghi should choose the most reliable defense trio, the one composed by Radu, De Vrij and Caceres. In midfield Marusic, suspended in the next game of the season, should be more reason to be in place of Basta. Luis Alberto will return owner forward with Immobile. Lukaku and Felipe Anderson, who played two big games against Fcsb and Sassuolo, will start off the bench.

The only change in Milan compared to the team that always beat Roma at the Olimpico should be the inclusion of Kalinic instead of Cutrone.

Prediction Today LAZIO – MILAN

Given the result of zero to zero of the first leg, if the score will unlock the challenge will change a lot at a tactical level and especially in the second half could become spectacular.

The probable formations of Lazio-Milan

LAZIO (3-5-1-1): Strakosha; Radu, De Vrij, Caceres; Lulic, Parolo, Lucas Leiva, Milinkovic-Savic, Marusic; Luis Alberto; Building.
MILAN (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Calabria, Bonucci, Romagnoli, Rodriguez; Biglia, Kessie, Bonaventura; Suso, Kalinic, Calhanoglu.

Prediction of the Day: 1-1, GOL
Odds: 1.75
Prediction Today: TIME WITH + GOL SECOND
Odds: 2.12
