Athletic Bilbao takes the 11th position with 12 points, while Espanyol are 12th with a point less. The match will be played at the stadium "San Mames Barria" this Friday.

Athletic Bilbao are in better shape than his rival. "Lions" are unbeaten for four consecutive rounds in the Primera and even managed to win two of them. Unlike for example, at the Champions League the team have no win and their only point gained leaves them without a chance of ranking forward. In the last round of Primera, Athletic had a dangerous rival in the face of Valencia, but eventually meeting not determine the winner and both teams shared the point after a goalless draw.
Against Espanyol, Ernesto Valverde will not be able to rely once again on its first striker Aduriz and the defender Iraola. Markel Susaeta and Iker Muniain missed the game against Valencia, but have already recovered and will be online.

Espanyol is in a series of four consecutive meetings without a win. It looks very difficult for them when they play away from home; where there is still no single win. In the last round against Villarreal escaped with a large dose of luck, having managed to catch up in the extra time given by the judge. Coach Sergio Gonzalez definitely has problems with his team. He tried to make changes in the composition, but never came to a positive result. Anyway, against Athletic Bilbao all players will be online including the defender Hector Moreno and his colleague Alvaro Gonzalez.

Athletic Bilbao rightly defined as the favorite by bookmakers and their victory comes with coefficient at 1.75. For Espanyol is 4.80 and the equality is estimated at 3.50.

The most unpleasant presentation of Cagliari was in the last three meetings, in which Zeman's team didn’t score a goal, lost their home games against Fiorentina and Chievo, and also failed to win against the absolute outsider Parma.

Juventus is in a series of nine shutouts in all tournaments as in their first six meetings the team has achieved complete success. However, we will turn our attention to the past three fights of Juventus, in which the team of Allegri achieved draws. That includes fights in Florence and the home game of Atletico Madrid, and the results can be accepted. But it remains without an explanation of the champion in the household of Sampdoria.

The hosts are without Sebastian Eriksson, Marco Sau and Simeone Colombi, who are injured. Victor Ibarbo returns from serving the punishment, and this means that Krizetig will return on the left flank.
The guests are without the injured Kvadvo Asamoa, Luca Marone, Martin Kaseras, Romulo and Storari. Leonardo Bonuči was suspended. The good news from tonight is that Andre Bardzali was included in the team for the match, but it is certain that the 33-year-old defender will not play tomorrow.

Without underestimating the qualities of Zdenek Zeman, the experts claim that his team has no chance against a famous rival. The hosts have problems in their last matches in which they have not scored a goal, and the defense continues to pass. That is a real suicide against the team of Juventus.

At the stadium Boleyn Ground on Sunday West Ham team welcomes Swansea for the 15th round of the Premier League. The game is very interesting, because here we see meeting between two teams that are fighting for the entry in the Top 4 places which providing participation in the Champions League.

Guided by Sam Allardyce, West Ham performed very well in the championship and if they can keep this rhythm, may be will be able to qualify in one of the top places. “Hammers” are unbeaten in five consecutive home games in the Premier League, which confirmed their strong participation in the 2014/2015. In the last three meetings with Swansea, West Ham record a clean sheets and one victory in the Sunday clash can put them in the 3rd place for a while, because the 3rd and 4th Southampton and Manchester United are only 2 and 1 points ahead.

In the last intermediate round of the Premier League this week, West Ham did away victory over West Brom. For the upcoming match injured striker Enner Valencia will be back, which is likely to be a starter in the composition. However, midfielders Mark Noble, Alex Song and striker Diafra Sacco are with a question for the game.

Swansea are in 7th position on the table, but only two points less than their opponents. They also play great football this season, but continue to experience difficulties in his visits with five consecutive meetings without a win away from home.

Juventus Vs. Atletico Madrid

Juventus stand against Atletico Madrid in the final match of the group stage of the Champions League. The upcoming game is going to be played at the ‘Juventus Stadium’ from on 9 December 2014. The hosts have not secured their participation in the knockout phase yet and at this moment they take the second place, while Atletico Madrid forward participation is already certain. Victory for Juventus at the leading bookmakers is at 2.20, the draw is estimated at 3.20 and for Atletico Madrid is available at odds of 3.90.

Juventus have to seek the minimum point if want to be sure participant in the next stage of the tournament. Close behind them is the team of Olympiakos with three points less than Juventus, so equality is most certainly at this stage. A few rounds ago, Atletico Madrid won as hosts with minimum 1-0 over Juventus. Now "The old lady" will be able to take revenge and with the same result will be very acceptable.
Coach Allegri managed to put his team to two consecutive victories in the Champions League, but we can’t forget to mention the brilliant performance of the team in the domestic championship, where they are at the top of the standings. In the Champions League team wins in all home games and their gaps excelled in an away game. In the last round of Serie A in their visit to Fiorentina, Juventus failed to gain full points and although continue to lead; the difference with the second novel is now only 3 points. Before this match against Atletico, Allegri could not count on injured defenders Andrea Barzagli and Martin Caceres and midfielders Kwadwo Asamoah and Romulo.

For guests from Atletico Madrid this match is irrelevant, but knowing their style of playing they will do it for prestige and will not allow surrender easy. The team is a leader with 12 points in the asset and even to allow minimal defeat by Juventus, they have a better goal difference than the Italians and again will remain in the first position. The boys of Diego Simeone have already beaten Juventus ones, which will play its psychological role in this game. Atletico Madrid managed to score four wins in the group stage and the only team defeated them in the first round was Olympiakos (3-2).
Atletico Madrid perform very well in La Liga, where is in a series of three consecutive victories, ranked third and have a real chance to win a second consecutive title. Another victory in the Champions League would give them even greater strength and confidence in the domestic championship, where every mistake of the leader will be punished severely. For the forthcoming visit permanent injured are only defenders Christian Ansaldo and Miranda.

Equality is the logical outcome of this confrontation, because Atletico Madrid can’t allow someone to steal the first place just in the last round and Juventus on the other hand doesn’t have the strength to defeat Atletico Madrid at this stage of the tournament.

The soccer prediction of Sport-Tips.Net is the following: Atletico Madrid – Juventus: X or under 2.5 goals
Security: 9/10

Odds: 3.20 (X in bet365)

Roma vs. Manchester City - soccer forecast

The battle Roma vs. Manchester City is one of the decisive matches in the UEFA Champions League today. That is why the experts from have done some analysis, which will be helpful for all of you, in order to guess the final outcome correctly. Check it out:

In one of the most intriguing recent duels from the group stage of this year's edition of the UEFA Champions League, the teams of Roma and Manchester City will fight against each other in a dispute for the second place in group E. That place will ensure the right of participation of the eighth-finals in the spring for one of the teams. The situation in the group is extremely complicated. Before the match the Wolves occupy the second place in the group with 5 points in total, as the Citizens have the same amount, but they are on the third place in the group ranking. If the match between Roma and Manchester City ends in a draw and at the same time, the ‘Moscow soldiers’ defeat Bayern Munich, then the Russian team will continue forward.

In the previous match in the tournament, literally some seconds ‘separated’ Roma from an important victory in Moscow, which was largely to ensure the participation of the Romans in the next phase. However, the derby ended in a draw of 1:1 after CSKA scored the goal in the injury time of the match. In that way, both teams now have five points in group E and the last match will be in the battle for the second place. For the decisive clash with Manchester City, the Wolves’ coach Rudi Garcia will not be able to rely on Kastan, because he is injured. What is more, the participation of Torosidis is questionable as well. The lack of any key players always makes the preparation of good football tips harder than ever.

The English champion Manchester City showed some temper and kept the real chances for the continuation to the eighth-finals in the UEFA Champions League, once they get to some undeserved victory with 3:2 in their home game against Bayern Munich. Until the 85th minute the English champion was losing with the result of 1:2, but two startling errors of Chubby Alonso and Jerome Boateng allowed Sergio Aguero to reverse the outcome by 3:2. The Argentinian realized the first goal in the 21st minute from the penalty spot. Due to a violation against him Benatia Medi received a direct red card and was thrown out of the game. The bad news for the mentor of the Citizens Manuel Pellegrini is that the star of the team Aguero got a knee injury in Saturday's match against Everton in the English Premier League The Argentinian may not play for longer, but certainly the top scorer will not travel to Rome today.

Although it is not so easy to do trustworthy soccer picks for the today’s match, because the event may be full of surprises, we recommend you bet on a victory of Roma.
