Spain LaLiga: Celta Vigo vs Eibar

 Hello everyone!

January is almost over and the next preview predictions is long overdue ;) Let's do one for today!

Celta Vigo - Eibar


On Sunday afternoon (or early evening) Celta Vigo will be playing at home versus Eibar. According to the odds Celta is a favourite and Eibar is an underdog. I would say a big underdog because they can surprise away!
  • Celta Vigo to win - 2.05
  • Draw - 3.30
  • Eibar to win - 3.80
It should be quite close game and I'm sure odds would be other way around if it was Eibar playing at home. Anyway I don't think Celta Vigo can win this. 

Celta Vigo - missing players:

  • Sergio Alvarez - goalkeeper - knee injury, have already been missing since many games
  • Iago Aspas - forward - ankle injury, have been missing since 3 games, one of the main players
  • Jeison Murillo - defender - muscle injury, today is first game he will be missing, one of the main players
  • Denis Suarez - midfielder - missing since today due to yellow cards, one of the main players
It looks like Celta is in trouble because most of those missing players are quite important first team guys. This will definately affect their performance today!

Eibar - no missing players today!


This is rare but today Eibar is in full power :)

League Standings & Form

After 19 rounds so far Celta Vigo is in the middle of the La Liga table with 23 points. Eibar is closer to the bottom part with 19 points. Goals stats looks more less simialr - 23:30 Celta and 16:20 Eibar so both are negative. However if we look at home games only for Celta Vigo then 9 games, 15 points a 14:16 goals so still negative goals diff. On the other hand away games for Eibar looks good - 9 games, 12 points and 11:10 in goals statistics. Both sideas are in an average form and in their last 5 matches they both collected 4 points.

H2H - Direct Matches

Their last 2 direct matches ended with goalless results 0:0 each. Previous to that Eibar won couple of games at home and lost one game away.

Interesting Facts

The Celta Vigo's top scorer Iago Aspas will be missing today and this should have big impact on the attacking power.


Predictions

  • Eibar to win or draw
  • Under 2.5 goals in total
  • Eibar to score at least 1 goal
  • Correct score: 0:0, 0:2 or 0:1

Good luck!

Spain: LaLiga - Primera Division 09 Jan 2021

 Hi All!

Let's do our first preview predictions and analysis in the 2021! It's been slower start of the year in the football world mainly due to Covid19 virus however there are still some major leagues going on. So today we are going to focus on Spanish Primera Division aka LaLiga since there will be quite interesting games this weekend.

Osasuna - Real Madrid


On Saturday in the late evening Osasuna will be playing at home against Real Madrid. As you might expect according to the odds Real Madrid is a favourite to win this one. However the odds are quite good if we taking into account actual power of both teams:
  • Osasuna to win - 6.50
  • Draw - 4.75
  • Real Madrid to win - 1.44
Here it's quite easy to predict because there is quite a big difference in the level of both teams and there won't be any major absenses in the away side. So Real should be able to get 3 points. 

Osasuna - missing players:

  • Adrian - forward - muscle injury, have already been missing since many games already
  • Luis Ezequiel Avila - foward - have been missing since pretty much start of the season
  • Juan Perez - goalkeeper - have been missing since many games, not a main player
  • Ruben - goalkeeper - same as above
  • Lucas Torro - midfielder - have been missing since many games
OK quite a few missing but none of them are considered to be major players so very unlikely to have any impact on Osasuna performance.

Real Madrid - missing players:

  • Daniel Carvajal - defender - missing because of yellow cards, main squad player
  • Luka Jovic - forward - injured every few games this season, otherwise sitting on the bench
  • Sergio Ramos - defender - stomach problem, one of the main players
  • Rodrygo - forward - injured since couple of games, one of the main players
Real will be missing few important players however their bench is big and they have a lot of skillful alternatives to choose from.

League Standings & Form

Real Madrid is on the second place losing just 2 points to the first Atletico Madrid. They will need to fight and try to win every game if they want to challenge the top spot. Also Atletico has 2 games less so potentially even bigger points difference. Osassuna is also on the second place but from the bottom ;-) They are trying to stay in the league but it proves to be hard and they have been struggling so far. After 16 games Osasuna collected 14 points.In terms of the recent form Real Madrid looks great - within the last 5 league games they got 13 points. Osasuna on the other hand got only 3 points in their last 5 matches. The last 5 home games only for Osasuna are 2 draw results and 3 loses. The same for Real Madrid are 3 wins and also 2 draws. Despite that the 3rd draw for both is unlikely.

H2H - Direct Matches

In the direct games between those teams Real is a champion as they won in their last 7 meetings scoring at least 2 goals regardless if away or at home. Osasuna scored 0 or 1 goals max in most of them.

Interesting Facts

If we look at away games only so far in the current season Real Madrid played 9 of them and got 18 points which is the best score in the league. The goal stats for those in total are 15:10 which suggest they might lose a goal in this game.


Predictions

  • Real Madrid to win
  • Over 2.5 goals in total
  • Real Madrid to score 2+ goals
  • Osasuna to score over 0.5
  • Real Madrid to win both halves 2/2
  • Correct score: 1:3, 0:2 or 1:1

Bonus - betting tips for other LaLiga games this weekend:
  • Sevilla - Real Sociedad 1X
  • Atletica Madrid - Athletic Bilbao 1
  • Granada - Barcelona 2
  • Levante - Eibar X2
  • Cadiz - Alaves X2
  • Elche - Getafe X2
  • Valladolid - Valencia BTTS

Good luck!

Spain - LaLiga - 29 Dec 2020

Sevilla - Villarreal


On Tuesday afternoon Sevilla will be playing at home against Villarreal in the Spanish Primera Division aka La Liga. Odds given by bookmakers for each outcome are following:
  • Sevilla to win - 2.25
  • Draw - 3.30
  • Villarreal to win - 3.25
According to the odds Sevilla is given more chances to win whereby Villarreal is considered to be an underdog. Similar to our previous preview prediction on this blog this kind of odds would be quite other way around if Villarreal was playing at home. So just like before there is no clear winner to win this one... it could really go either way. And again draw result is likely to happen.

Sevilla - missing players:

  • Sergio Escudero - defender - injured since many games already
  • Fernando - midfielder - new ankle injury since last game
  • Tomas Vaclik - goalkeeper - injured since start of December
So here only absence of Fernando will impact the game.

Villarreal - missing players:

  • Francis Coquelin - midfielder - injured since many games
  • Alberto Moreno - defender - injured pretty much all season so far
  • Mario Gaspar - defender - new knee injury since the last game
Mario Gaspar normally plays so Villarreal will be a bit weaker than usual on a defense.

League Standings & Form

Both teams are in the top part of the league table. Sevilla is 6th with 23 points and Villarreal is 4th with 26 points. This is round 16 but Sevilla is missing 2 games so potentially has an advantage of getting 6 extra points. In terms of the home games form Sevilla got 10 points in the 6 matches at home. Villarreal's away form is 10 points in the 7 away matches. In other words home form of Sevilla is kind of similar to away form of Villarreal. Overall form in the last 5 games is slightly better for Sevilla - 10 points in 5 matches versus Villarreal's 7 points.

H2H - Direct Matches

The last game was in June 2020 and it ended with 2:2 draw result. Villarreal was playing at home. In their last 5 direct games there were 3 times draw results and 2 times Villarreal won. Most of those games produced goals from both teams with total number of goals being over 2.5.

Interesting Facts

Villarreal has not lost a single game in all competitions since September 2020 when they lost away to Barcelona.


Predictions

  • Villarreal to win or draw
  • Both teams to score
  • High odds tip: draw result
  • Correct score: 0:0, 2:2 or 2:3

Good luck!

England - Premier League - 27 Dec 2020

West Ham - Brighton


On Sunday afternoon West Ham will be playing at home against Brighton in the English Premier League. Odds given by bookmakers offer good value on all possible outcomes:
  • West Ham to win - 2.40
  • Draw - 3.30
  • Brighton to win - 3.10
We can see that according to the odds West Ham is a favourite to win but it's probably because they are playing at home. If the game was away the odds would most likely be other way around. In other words there is no clear winner here and both teams have more/less the same chances to win or not to win :) In which case it could end up with a draw result.

West Ham - missing players:

  • Antonio M. - midfielder
  • Masuaku A. - defender

Brighton - missing players:

  • Andone F. - forward
  • Izquierdo J. - forward
  • Lamptey T. - defender

Those are not major absences as all those players have now been missing for some time.

League Standings & Form


West Ham is in the middle of the table with 21 points after 14 games. If we count games at home only then they are 6th which is not bad at all. Brighton is at the bottom part of the table with 12 point after 14 matches. If we count away matches only then they are in the middle of the table - that means they tend to get better results away than at home! Now looking into the last 5 games both teams are in rather poor form. Maybe West Ham is doing slightly better.

Predictions

  • West Ham to win or draw
  • Both teams to score
  • High odds tip: draw result

Good luck!

Premier League: Leicester - Manchester United

Hi All!

On Saturday afternoon Leicester will be playing at home against Manchester United in the 15th round of the English Premier League. There is no clear favourite to win this although according to the odds it's Man Utd who has higher chance of winning. Both teams are in the top 3 in the league - Leicester 2nd place with 27 points nad Man Utd 3rd with 26 points. However Manchester Utd is one game behind which potentially means extra 3 points.

Missing Players

Man Utd

  • Phil Jones (defender) - has been missing pretty much all season so far
  • Marcos Rojo (defender) - same as above
Leicester
  • Ricardo Pereira (defender) - missing since quite some time now and it did not affect team performance
  • Caglar Soyuncu (defender) - was already missing in many recent games and it did not affect performance of the team
So no major absences in both teams. We are onto the great day with pretty much full squad available!

Direct Games


We need to look really back into the past to find a game when Man Utd would lose against Leicester. Most of them are either wins for Man Utd or draw results. In this regards Man Utd is cleary leading.

Teams Form


Man Utd is in a great shape recently - in the last 5 league games they collected 13 points which is the best of all the Premier League teams. Furthermore if we look into away games only it's even better - they actually won all 6 away league matches this season so far!

Leicester collected 9 points in the lat 5 league games. In all of the 7 matches at home only they got 9 points. I would say it's an average record at home but good overral. 

Leicester - Man Utd

Tip: X2 - Man Utd to win or draw


I agree with bookmakers that Man Utd has higher chance of winning despite playing away. They are in a great shape recently and the odds are very generous.


Good luck & Merry Christmas 2020!
